What our patients say about us
  • Dr. David D. Purlee DDS opened his office in 1984. My entire family has gone there ever since. Dr. Purlee and his entire staff are the best in Illinois! My daughters moved out of the area and have tried other dentists but they travel from Orion, IL and from Clinton, IA to go to the best dentist! He even did braces on my daughters! I have recommended Dr. Purlee to lots of people; he's the best! His staff is always friendly, accommodating, and efficient. ALWAYS A SMILE in that office!
    – Martha W. – Morrison, IL
  • Dr. Purlee’s office and staff need to be commended for making my visit to the dentist a very comfortable one. Needless to say I was overdue for a visit to the dentist. I was treated with the utmost respect and kindness. Dr. Purlee is easy to talk to and very patient with any questions you may have. Thank you everyone on Dr. Purlee’s team!
    – Sherry V. – Lake Carroll, IL
  • My kids and I have been patients of Dr. Purlee's for the better part of twenty years. He and his staff work hard to give you great care, professional treatment, and sound oral health advice. Over the years my kids have built a relationship with Doc and his staff that takes the stress out of going to the dentist.
