Patient Testimonials


The talented team at Current Dental are professional, positive, and pleasant! Jim and Dr. Verharen have been my providers for the last 7 years and I can’t think of a better place to go for “over-the-top” dental care!


Ok, first time to the dentist in 15 years!!! I was super nervous and really scared but Crystal my hygienist made me feel super comfortable and talked me through EVERYTHING!!! Great staff, great people!


I had such an amazing experience! Every one in the office was extremely kind and intelligent. My dental hygienist was very educational and gentle. My dentist was also very pleasant and complementary! I look forward to my next visit!


I am so glad that my husband and I found Current Dental when we moved to Bremerton a year ago. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff and very convenient location.


I have the biggest fear of the dentist. I was putting off having to find a new one that I could trust to work with me and be tolerant of my silly phobia. They’re the best!
