Wishing we saw a bit less of each other but I am glad to have you. You always have my referrals. Keep up the great work. From being greeted by name to joking about kids, flexible scheduling and then friendly goodbyes. You're all amazing!
Great Experience. Very professional and friendly dentists and hygienists. Makes going to the dentist easy!
Excellent work by Jamie on cleaning my teeth. She always kept me aware of what she was doing. I appreciated that as I felt I was part of the process.
I have awful teeth and an awful fear of going to the dentist. That's not a good combination! But everybody at South University Dental is so extremely kind! Truly amazingly nice. They put me at ease and fixed my teeth so well it has been nothing short of life changing.
First appointments this week for myself and kids~Everyone was super friendly and made us feel very comfortable.
My experience here has always been good. The staff (esp.Laurie at the recp. desk) are always friendly & pleasant. Quality of work is excellent!! I really like the new dentist.
My kids aren't afraid of going to the dentist anymore!!! For more than 13 years now, Dr. DeBates and his team have taken care of all of us. Exquisitely. AMAZING PEOPLE, AMAZING CARE.
