Well just had a tooth pulled, it was quick, easy, and most of all PAINLESS! Thank you very much!
Tammy was the dental technician assigned to clean my teeth. She did a totally excellent job of cleaning my teeth.
Both Dr Samuel & the hygienist did awesome with my 8 year old son!
Just went to this Dentist for the 1st time and was blown away by the kindness and patience off the staff! My Husband has been recommending him for years, and I am so happy I went. Would recommend to family and friends and plan to use him permanently now!
Great staff and service. I was able to see Dr. Bergan without prior appointment for a minor tooth chip. I highly recommend South University Dental.
I had a wonderful experience. All staff was friendly & helpful. I'm glad that I switched from my other dentist office.
All of the staff there are qualified, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. There have been times when they have run late but they keep us informed and are very apologetic about it.
