His staff is always friendly, accommodating, and efficient

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!
