Dr. DeBates and his warm and friendly staff make it a joy to experience the dental office. From their soft and gentle ways, their smiles and knowing that they are so professional and look at the overall health of your mouth is wonderful.
They made my visit to a dentist office nice. Also, I am shift worker so I am grateful they are opened on Fridays.

Great people and service! Everyone here is so friendly and helpful! It makes a dental appointment so much easier! Thank you for the great service!
Dr Debates has always been fantastic and once again today Dr Bergan impressed me with his skills and his compassion. It just doesn't get any better than this.
I had a bit of an emergency (very minor) situation and the team at South University Dental accommodated me very quickly and got me in and out and back to life with barely a hiccup. Great people and great work. Highly recommend.
Molly and Dr. Samuel did a great job! I appreciate their gentleness, kindness and professionalism!
It is always a great experience seeing Dr. DeBates. They are all very respectful and always let me know what the updates with my daughters. I appreciate their professionalism and attention to detail. My entire family looks forward to our visits twice a year.
