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.
Well I don't really look forward to going back but if I had to you are the place I would go back to! Excellent staff of professionals.
I and my wife have been going to South University Dental Associates since the late 80's and are now retired and in our 70's. We credit our continued great dental health to the excellent care we've received from Dr. Fellman and his team of professionals.
Dr. Bergan is an awesome Dentist! Would highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr.Bergan is amazing with kids. He has made it that my kids love going to the dentist
My visit to see Dr Samuel was pretty awesome. It was a non-scheduled appointment for an abscess tooth. I was in and out in about 30 minutes with 1 less tooth. Very professional, friendly, and caring; a great job done by all involved.
Great team!
