Cosmetic Dentistry Patients
I would like to thank Dr. Arnold, Angie, and Becky for their friendly and caring service while having my front teeth fixed. I was very nervous to go though the process of replacing veneers which were previously not to my satisfaction. Dr. Arnold took the time to make sure my new teeth were thin, natural, and feminine. His work is quality, even the temporaries looked better than my old veneers. I would highly recommend Dr. Arnold and his professional staff.
I am happy I chose Dr. Arnold to fix my teeth. The results are great. I like my smile and I feel more confident, therefore I do a lot of laughing these days.
P.S. Thanks Dr. Arnold you’re great!
My experience at Dr. Arnold's office has been a very good one! I can't believe the care I received was so gentle and caring, unlike some offices where you don't feel as welcome or cared for. Everyone of Dr. Arnold's staff is so down to earth and nice. Even my 7 year old son likes to come in. Thank you so much for my new smile.
For years I was so self conscious of my teeth I rarely smiled in pictures and around people outside of my house. When I first got my temporary crowns put in I was shocked, literally it took a minute to sink in what a drastic difference it made. I started crying because I knew this would change my life. Dr. Arnold gave me a hug, I knew he understood what this would do for my self image. I showed them to everyone I ran into. Today, one day before my 20th anniversary I have my permanent crowns. Wow, what a difference! I am going to be smiling all day every day. I am a positive outgoing person who loves to laugh. Now everyone will see that same person. Thank you to Dr. Arnold and your staff! Everyone is so friendly and professional. They make you feel like family.
Dear Dr. Arnold and staff,
Not everyone can say that they enjoy going to the dentist. I actually looked forward to every visit. You and your staff made me feel very comfortable and well taken care of. The procedures were painless and the results amazing. I am no longer afraid to smile. I would like to thank you for the great work that you do. You made it seem so easy from start to finish and I’m left with a better smile and more confidence. I am looking forward to having the rest of my teeth done next year.
Thank you so much
Dr. Arnold and his staff were professional and accommodating to all my needs. I was able to pick the color, shape, and texture of my new teeth! The procedure was explained very well and I always knew what to expect. Dr. Arnold made sure I was completely satisfied with my veneers. I am happy I made the choice to have my teeth veneered by an experienced professional cosmetic dentistry team!
My teeth look fantastic and I am very pleased with my new look! Everyone is always asking me how I get my teeth so white and how I keep them so perfect! A few years have past by and I can honestly say this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I receive complements all the time and I smile with confidence everywhere I go!
Dear Dr. Arnold,
I just wanted you and your caring team to know what a difference my new veneers have made in my life. I have hated my teeth since my permanent teeth came in--stained brown and yellow. The doctors said it was from the antibiotics I took when I was younger for the pneumonia and whooping cough, etc. But, here I am explaining why they were stained to you, when you would already know that. But I always felt like I had to make excuses for my teeth. Kids would always ask why my teeth were so yellow. So I would find myself explaining about the antibiotics over and over, year after year, only to have them say something like, "Well why don't you just brush your teeth!"
I tried having them "painted", but of course that was only in an attempt to cover the dark spots which of course it didn't. I wanted the dentist to paint the teeth white. Of course, they couldn't do that either, as the dentist had to match the color of the tooth, which was yellow. My poor Mom, who didn't have the money to spend on extras like this, did it, because she knew how self conscious I was about my teeth.
When I got married, I had porcelain veneers put on. Again, they had to match the surrounding teeth, unless you were having your whole mouth done, which no one did back then, nor could we afford. They were thick and yellow. I felt like I had buck teeth, although the dentist that did them, did a good job considering what materials, etc. were around at that time.
That brings us to now. As you know, I have a lung disease. The medicine's side effects have taken it's toll on my body, teeth included. I took this as a sign that maybe this was the time to get my veneers. But, part of me thought , "Why?" Some people die of this disease and most everyone dies with it. Maybe I shouldn't use the money we really don't have to spend on this right now if I'm not going to be around to enjoy it. My husband said, "How long have you wanted this?"
"Forever." "Then don't even think twice about it", he said. I protested with, "What if I die the day after I get them?" He said, "Then I'll tell the funeral director to make you smiling." I told him he wouldn't have to, I'd be doing it on my own! (I could also go into remission for a long while also!!!! This is, of course, what I plan on doing!)
My point is that none of us know what is going to happen from one minute to the next. We shouldn't keep waiting for that perfect time, because you could wait much too long.
I love my smile. I mean, I REALLY LOVE my smile. I have WHITE teeth. And whether I live to be 54 or 154, I would do it again...only sooner. I smile more. I laugh more. And you know what they say about laughter... Laughter is the best medicine! Now, wouldn't that be something! There's a grant study in there someplace!
So thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for my smile, WHITE teeth and for changing my life.
The aroma of fresh baked bread, a choice of watching whatever I want on the television, a fabulous guy with wonderful assistants... This couldn't be a dental office. Actually it is and it's the best dental office I've ever been to. The service is beyond outstanding and I am elated with my finished smile. Dr. Arnold is not just a Dentist, he is an artist. He and his staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I was completely satisfied. I would recommend this Dentist to anyone. If you want the best, you want Dr. Arnold & Associates. I drive more than an hour to see Dr. Arnold, and it is well worth the trip.
Thanks for everything, I'm one of your biggest fans.

I was born without two of my top front teeth. For years I had to wear a partial denture. I did not want to have a bridge done because I wanted the normal feeling of flossing between my teeth. I decided to go with dental implants. I also decided to have my top 8 teeth veneered to match the two false teeth. It is the best decision I could have made. Everyone compliments me on the whiteness and straightness of them. Dr. Arnold and his staff went out of their way to make sure I loved the final result. Anyone with missing teeth or wanting the perfect smile should consider a consult at Dr. Arnold's office.
Thank you very much!
My new smile gave me the confidence to work with the public again. It feels good to smile again. My only regret is that I did not have it done sooner. I can’t thank Dr. Arnold and his team enough.
Every Experience that I have had with Dr. Arnold and his team has been a pleasant one. I am so glad that I trusted you (and didn't run for the hills!!!) and completed my smile transformation. I smile at myself and everyone else so much more... and that gesture alone has made me a happier person. I am blessed to have met you.
Dear Dr. Arnold and Team,
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing work you did when I had my complete dental makeover. In the past few years, I had become extremely conscious of my smile because so much emphasis has been put on how white and how straight people's teeth are. I would be very conscious of smiling and talking to people since over the years my teeth have yellowed and were never perfect. I also had several bridges and silver caps. Now because of the make over, I have a beautiful set of pearly whites and I no longer worry about smiling.
The process went smooth and was virtually painless. Coming to your office was a pleasure because of the way I was treated by the staff. They are great; they could not have been friendlier or more caring.
Dear Dr. Arnold,
Let me begin by saying that I truly appreciate your God given talent of performing family and cosmetic dentistry. My daughter and I have had the pleasure of being your patients since you began practice many years ago. Your dental expertise and personal demeanor is exactly what any caring parent would desire for their children and themselves. As with any skilled artisan, you are only as good as the people around you and in this case your hand-selected staff personifies professionalism, politeness and understanding.
As you very well know, this past year I finally elected to have you perform the much-needed art of cosmetic dentistry to my upper set of teeth. After many years of sports, cavities, genetic history and plain wear and tear, it was time to take major corrective action. Let us not forget that I still had two (a) baby teeth visible and soundly planted. For anyone pondering cosmetic dentistry with you based upon their fear of pain and cost, I will gladly state that the pain is minimal, if any, and the cost is an investment in their future health, happiness and mental well being. You cannot place a price tag on a great healthy smile!
My complicated procedure (veneers, bridges, caps and crowns) was flawless due to your expertise and determination to have my smile perfect. You informed me prior, during and after all of the steps you were taking on my behalf. Not once did I leave your office with any questions or in a quandary. The entire experience was very pleasant considering the major work performed by you and your staff.
In conclusion, anyone considering cosmetic dentistry with you should have the confidence that their decision to select you as their dentist, I think your new title should be “Dental Miracle Worker”, is well founded and their satisfaction will be the result of a great healthy smile.
Thanks again for your professionalism, efforts and abilities.
Dear Dr. Jim and Team
I'm one of those people that only went to the dentist when I had a problem. Lots of excuses, to busy, didn't like the drill, etc.
Now that I'm getting a little older I finally decided that I had to deal with years of accumulated dental problems.
From the minute I came through the front door of your office I knew this was going to be different from any of my previous dental encounters. Everyone in your office is friendly, professional and a pleasure to be around. I actually look forward to my visits.
After a thorough check up and examination I decided on a complete dental make over.
I can't believe how easy you and your team made this entire procedure for me. Your expertise along with the modem techniques and tools really made it easy. The entire process was totally painless and the final results are even better than I expected. I can't believe the difference.
People tell me I'm smiling a lot more these days. I guess I have a new reason to smile.
Finally, I'd like to thank you and your team for the way they treated me and for the wonderful new smile I'm wearing.
I would like to take a moment to thank Dr. Arnold and his staff for an outstanding job of dentistry. After several disappointing attempts to correct my smile at other dentist offices, Dr. Arnold created a beautiful smile that feels and looks very natural. Even though I had extensive work done, the process was not stressful or painful. I am thrilled with the results and would like to encourage anyone who is considering having this type of work done, to go for it.
With Sincere Thanks,
Dear Arnold and staff that treated me with the utmost courtesy,
Dr. Arnold was proficient and informative. I felt confident that the care I received was the best available.
I've had less favorable experience in the past and highly recommend Dr. Arnold and staff.
In June I met with Dr. Arnold to discuss some options to enhance my smile. I was getting married in August and wanted to look my best for the big day. After consulting with Dr. Arnold I decided I wanted a wider, brighter and more beautiful smile. I was pretty much asking him for a perfect set of teeth and he assured me it was possible.
I received a beautiful set of porcelain veneers just in time for my wedding. Words cannot express how appreciative I am to Dr. Arnold and his team for the amazing outcome.
My smile sparkles!
I am constantly being complimented on my beautiful smile and white teeth. I have Dr. Arnold to thank for this and am very grateful for his impeccable work on a difficult case.
I would also like to add that I am impressed with Dr. Arnold's team. I found them to be both professional and friendly. They helped to make my experience comfortable and worry free.
I would highly recommend Dr. Arnold and his staff to anyone that is considering cosmetic dentistry. I can assure you he is one of the best!
I have been around and through dental offices from New York, to Virginia, to Texas... and the teamwork within Dr. Arnold's office is the best I have ever experienced. To a person... they are GREAT!

Dr. Arnold has changed my life. Back in the 1980’s I started using drugs. I got so deep into the drugs that I did not care about my appearance. I stopped taking care of my teeth, and they slowly started to decay. I never went to see a dentist; I just let them get worse. I simply did not care. I would live with pain, I mean serious tooth pain. I never had the money to see a dentist. My life and my mouth were in really bad shape.
In 1997 I had a life changing experience. I became a dad. My life took a turn for the better. I got off drugs and have been off drugs ever since. By this time I had neglected my teeth for over 10 years. I was getting headaches that were so bad I wished I were dead. Something had to be done. In early 2000 my grandma and grandpa passed away and I inherited a good sum of money.
At this time I decided to see Dr. Arnold. It would turn out to be one of the best decisions I would ever make. Even though I never liked going to the dentist, Dr. Arnold told me there is nothing to fear. Dr. Arnold was right. He transformed my disgusting mouth into a work of art. I now have beautiful teeth and I live pain free. I eat better, I feel better, I look better, I love my new mouth.
Since Dr. Arnold fixed my mouth I have gotten married, I got a new, better job, and I am a lot happier. Life is much better now. I smile all the time.
To Whom it May Concern:
Having invested tens of thousands of dollars in my mouth, at the age of 53, my teeth looked twenty years older than my face.
Making the decision to have porcelain veneers was one of the better decisions of my life. What a significant difference in my appearance. I hope to have all my teeth done next year.
Dr. Arnold has done an incredible job, helping me once again to smile at the world.
January 12, 2004
I am writing this letter to thank you for your excellent work and professionalism. Please thank your team for me. They were kind and gentle.
For the first time in my life, friends and patients are complimenting me on my smile. The difference is truly remarkable.
A patient once informed me that the best gift she ever received was a beautiful smile. I agree. Thank you once again for the beautiful smile and all your help.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Kevin B.
P.S. If any of my patients move to your area, I will strongly recommend you.
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how very pleased I am with the dental work you did for me. I cannot even begin to articulate what a positive change it made in my life. Both my professional career and personal life have improved dramatically.
People respond to me much differently then before. The eye contact and body language responses are much more positive then ever. I believe by this occurring it in turn gives me more confidence and I find myself much more assertive and everyday just gets better.
It’s been approximately a year since the dental work has been completed and I have absolutely no doubt what I would say if someone was to ask me what they should do, invest in the dental work or anything else, my answer would be the dental work.
I can never thank you enough and if you ever need me as a reference don’t hesitate to call or feel free to give your patient my number. If the timing works, I would be more then willing to come over if you would like them to see it in person. Your work is outstanding!
Take care, and again, thank you so much.
I have always been a person who easily smiles. Over the last several years I have had a tendency to hide my smile or hold back and not smile as much or as broadly due to the condition of my teeth. Since Dr. Arnold changed my smile, I can "light up" with a broad natural smile, confidently at any time. I am so thankful for the work done so skillfully.
I CAN SMILE AGAIN! I feel like my teeth are back to what they were 40 years ago. I would do this again in a minute. This is one of the Best things I could have done!
I am so happy and proud to show off my smile now! I feel more confident and sure of myself. Dr. Arnold and his staff are awesome! They told me everything they were going to do during the procedures. They even sent me cards and pictures between visits.
Dr. Arnold and his staff were professional and accommodating to all my needs. I was able to pick the color, shape, and texture of my new teeth! The procedure was explained very well and I always knew what to expect. Dr. Arnold made sure I was completely satisfied with my veneers. I am happy I made the choice to have my teeth veneered by an experienced professional cosmetic dentistry team! My teeth look fantastic and I am very pleased with my new look! Everyone is always asking me how I get my teeth so white and how I keep them so perfect! A few years have past by and I can honestly say this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I receive complements all the time and I smile with confidence everywhere I go!
Sedation Dentistry Patients
I was very afraid of the Dentist, in matter of fact I went 6 years before I found Dr. Arnold. The care that Dr. Arnold and his team have showed me is unbelievable. I am no longer afraid, and actually look forward to seeing everyone at the office. They have the best PR skills I have seen in a long time, they truly care about all of their patients. I would recommend that everyone goes to Dr. Arnold.
For two years, I searched the 7-state Midwest region to find a dentist who had a proven record for performing high quality dental work coupled with a sedation license and the patience to accommodate my special medical needs, which prevent the use of Novocain. With half of my dental work completed in only one visit and the knowledge that my future needs can be met without pain and with nominal out-of-pocket expense, my search for the region's best dental care provider is over! Dr. James Arnold has not only restored my ability to receive dental care and make it a health priority for me, but he has improved the overall quality of my day-to-day life. I recommend Dr. Arnold to everyone looking for the best in quality dental care!
This has been a truly marvelous experience from beginning to end. I have always been afraid to have teeth work done and it always was associated with pain and discomfort. Having conscious sedation makes all the differences. With the amount of work that needed to be done, it would have taken a year to complete. Here, I had everything done in two sessions. Dr. Arnold and his staff were awesome! I highly recommend this service to others.
My experience was VERY GOOD! They took away my fear of dental work. I would recommend Dr. Arnold and his team to anyone who needs that extra tender care to get over their fears. Dr. Arnold and his Assistants are SUPER! If you want quality, friendly service with a SMILE - this is the place to be!
After having a fear of dental work, I had a calming experience. Everyone was wonderful, even down to the tube of chapstick!
The Sedation was amazing. I felt very little. I remembered very little. Your services are highly recommended. Thank you so much!
General Patient Comments
Brandy did my cleaning and she is just super. She gets the job done with a great touch and doesn't injure my gums. She covers all of the things that need to be done is such a friendly and professional way I can't imagine seeing anyone else!
Best dental office I have ever been to!
As always, fantastic friendly professional service that takes the agony out of cleaning my teeth. Brandi and Dr. Wargo are the best.
I want to thank you and your entire staff for your efforts yesterday on my behalf. I know your schedule was very full and everyone on your team was very busy so I am grateful for everything everyone did including working hard to fit me in yesterday and Monday. From check-in to check-out everyone went above and beyond expectations and took great care of me. I want you to know that I also very much appreciate the fact you never lecture me regarding how I ended up in the situation I did but rather focus on relieving my pain and fixing any issues at hand (always successfully I might add). That is a rare but very admirable quality in your profession. I can't say I'm looking forward to the next steps (no surprise there..;-) but I know I'm in good hands. Please let your staff know they are very much appreciated by this dentophobic...;-)
I want to thank Dr. Arnold & his staff for the most comfortable dentist appointment I have ever had. Every staff member is kind, caring, and compassionate. Dr. Arnold is truly a one-of-a-kind dentist. He listened to my concerns, treated me with respect and even though I didn't have major dental work done, I could tell he is very skilled at what he does. So I thank all of you, enjoy the flowers, and have a nice day!
Love the massage "mat" and hand "treatment". Thanks!
Thank you so very much for taking such good care of me. I know it is diffucult due to the vertigo problem I have. The hygenist had to stand because I can not lay back. Thank you again for being so understanding!
As usual, great appointment. Thanks!
Everyone was pleasant and professional. I have always had a great experience whenever I had an appt.even when I had work done (drilling,shots etc.) it was painless. (thank God!) Keep up the good work!
Everybody was very nice and made me feel comfortable and welcome. I look forward to my next visit.
Awesome Crew whom are very genuinely friendly. The Doctor is very personable (outstanding lady). Outstanding attitude and the best dental facility I've ever visited. Keep up the good work. ~G.C
Believe it or not, always happy to see my dentist :) Brandy is an excellent hygienist and I enjoy visiting with her as she does an excellent job on my teeth. I've been going to this office for over a decade and I have always been treated so well by all the staff. From Angie in the office to Becky and Drs. Arnold and Wargo, this is a fantastic group of dental professionals.
Best dentist office in NW Indiana. Not only were the staff welcoming and friendly, they did exactly what they said they would do. I have already made an appointment for another family member and plan to make more. They offer a lot of services. I didn't feel jerked around or told to pay one thing and then be asked to pay more. I'm still in shock. I'm used to being lied to and getting dental bills in the mail. I'm also used to long waits and painful procedures. I wish I had heard of this place sooner. I would have saved time, money and pain. What a great office.
Dr. Natalie Wargo is very professional, knowledgeable, and warm and caring. I would recommend her to anyone! My husband and I drove from Arizona just keep our appointment with her!
I've had an excellent experience with Dr Arnold’s office. Everyone has been beyond my expectations with their kindness. I would recommend this office to anyone whether they are a sacredly cat like me or just need a regular check up.
Always a pleasant visit. All staff here make my family and myself welcomed and comfortable. It feels more like going to a friend's than just going to the dentist. They truly know what it means to treat their patients with that personal feeling- never feel like a number in line. Thank you so very much for taking such good care of us.
Our first visit has been an absolute positive experience for our children and for me. I will definitely recommend your dental office.
I am extremely happy w my decision to change Dentists. Dr Arnold and his staff have completely changed the way I feel about going to the dentist. The atmosphere is friendly, welcoming, and actually relaxing!!
This review is for my 4 kids I brought to the office ... so you 4x this review. The office staff (especially the receptionist) are some of the kindest people I've met. They are the best resource of the office. The smiles and kindness are unmatched.
Laser Dentistry Patients
At first, I was so self conscious about my gummy smile. I hated it when I smiled, and always worried if I was showing my gums. I didn't know the dentist but as soon as I came in for my appointment everyone in the office made me feel comfortable. I love the results. My teeth no longer look like pellets. They look like the size of natural teeth. I do not show as much gums when I smile and my lower lips does not lift up as much now thanks to the frenetictomy. I would not hesitate to come back here. The dentist and the results are both wonderful. It's amazing that a minimal change can make such a maximal difference. Even if other people don't notice I can notice a difference and I feel a lot better about myself. So, if anyone is considering cosmetic dentistry I personally would say " GO For IT"!
October 8, 2003
I just had my first laser filling and Wow! That was great! Quick, painless, and my bite feels great. I’m 40 years old and it’s my best dentist visit yet!
Thanks Dr. Arnold and Gang!
What an AWESOME experience! For someone who is a dental phobic, it was virtually painless!
The water laser is pain-free without the use of anesthetic. There was minimal discomfort and was not in the least bit time consuming.
I just want to take the time to thank you for your wonderful service. I came in to have a fibroma removed from my lower lip. I had to have this done a few years back. At that time I had to go to an oral surgeon and the procedure involved having to have sutures. My lip was painful and swollen for about a week. As luck would have it I again had to have a fibroma removed from my lower lip. This time I came to Dr. Arnold and he was able to remove the fibroma with the water laser. This amazing technology took only a few minutes, and was virtually painless! I can't believe the difference. I went home and had no pain, no swelling, no sutures. It was like it was never there. A few weeks have gone by and I don't even have any scar tissue. Thank you again!
One time while I was eating I bit the inside of my cheek very hard. It healed leaving a very large growth (fibroma) on the inside of my cheek. I went in to have Dr. Arnold look at it. He suggested using an instrument called a water laser to remove the growth. I was very apprehensive. (I am one of those persons who is anxious about going to the dentist) Dr. Arnold assured me that it was a simple procedure. The day I went in I was nervous. He numbed the area and then proceeded to use the water laser to remove the growth. There was no pain, no blood, no stitches, and the procedure took very little time. I could not believe how easy it was. When the Novocain wore off there was a little tenderness at the site. This healed very quickly, I didn't even have a scar on the inside of my cheek. I am so happy it is gone, I wish I would have done it much sooner.
Dr. Arnold took care of my first cavity with his water laser. It only took about five minutes, and it was 100% painless WITHOUT anesthetic. It was even easier than getting my teeth cleaned!
Migraine Headache Patients
July 28, 2004
I was having headaches that I could not get rid of and within a week of using this they were gone. I can tell it is the NTI because if I forget to use it I notice a difference and in the morning after use I can feel it has worked.
May 10, 2005
I have been a TMJ sufferer most of my adult life. I go back to some of the first remedies with corrective appliances made for TMJ problems. I have since acquired a drawer full. Although they all served the purpose of re-mediating some of the pain and wear and tear on my teeth, none of them have worked the way the NTI has. Finally, something that is small, comfortable, and most of all effective! It has not only taken the severe pressure off the upper/lower back teeth, but has drastically reduced the facial and ear pain. I'm sure that if I had had this earlier on, I would have saved many of my muscles and teeth from the trauma they have suffered today. I highly recommend the NTI.
March 17, 2003
I had suffered with migraines for several years. I'd been to headache clinics, but the medications they tried never worked.
I read that doctors now believe a majority of migraine sufferers clench their teeth at night. So, when I asked Dr. Arnold about it, he agreed, and fitted me with the NTI. I haven't had a single migraine since! It worked for me.
Having used a night guard for nearly 24 years when my second one had worn out, I asked Dr. Arnold to make another. Instead, he suggested an NTI and explained the concept and benefits over another night guard. I am ultimately delighted with the immediate and continual results and, because I was skeptical, I am surprisingly impressed. I have no more tension headaches in the morning from grinding all night and my jaw is not tired and sore from the clenching.
A special thank you to Dr. Arnold and to the makers of my NTI.
Before being fitted for my N.T.I., I suffered with headaches and jaw fatigue and cracked teeth from clenching my teeth during the day and severely grinding my teeth at night. I wouldn't miss wearing it one night.
I had headaches every day and night for months until I got my NTI appliance. It is the best device for anyone who grinds their teeth at night. I do not skip a night because I know I will get a headache if I do not wear it. I Love It!
