Dr. Bratton is phenomenal! I first started seeing her as my dentist and we started to talk about my discomfort with my jaw. She advised on some first steps we could make to help with the pain and go from there. I feel like I’m getting my life back. She truly cares about her patients and works to find the best solutions tailored to you. I live in Kansas City but I will drive to St. Joe to continue to get her amazing care! Office and staff are fantastic too! Call and book today!

I have had bad experiences at the dentist throughout my life and because of this I neglected my teeth for a long time. About a year ago I gave dr bratton a shot after someone recommended her. She has done root canals, fillings, extractions on me you name it. I no longer have a fear of the dentist. She makes sure you’re 100% comfortable. It is always a good experience going to that office and dealing with any of them.
