Great customer service and care. Everyone is friendly, professional and thorough. Makes going to the dentist almost a pleasure!
My daughter had her first ever dental visit and it was so nice that my son and I could sit nearby so he could see it is not a scary thing. The hygienist took time to talk my daughter through everything and she loved it. She even explained the whole visit later to her dad.
Had three fillings done and while never look forward to this kind of event, knew that it would be done in a professional and as less painful way as possible.
Dr Debates, Sue, and the rest of the staff are always wonderful!
Love having my teeth cleaned and the great care our family has received from South University Dental. Oral Hygiene is very important and we appreciate the excellent care given to us.
