"My 7 year old son flipped off his bike and chipped his permanent front tooth. We went to the ER and they said no broken bones. While waiting for a April 9th appointment at another dentist office he started complaining of severe pain in his tooth that was chipped. When I got off work I drove by DentalWorks to see if I could schedule a appointment. They were closed so as I was putting the number in my cell for later a nice lady opened the door and asked me if I was ok. She saw the look on my face. I showed her the pic of my son's mouth and she said bring him in as,a emergency visit the next day (Friday). I brought him in not knowing what to expect.. The staff reassured me all would be fine. Dr. Mimmes introduced herself. They allowed me to walk with Drew to the room. I kissed him and stepped out trusting them to work their expertise.. What a wonderful job they did. GO TEAM!!!!!"

"The young black assistant and young black dentist were both very pleasant during my visit. My case took longer than expected but she took her time and finished working on my teeth with out rushing. I want to make sure she does my teeth when I go back again. The office is always nice and clean and the associates give good customer service."

U.S. | Google

"Honestly, I don’t care for the businesss operations. And heaven forebid if you get braces there, they really turn on financial tricks, including giving you two contracts with different figures and having an excuse for that, too! However, Olivia at the front desk has been a wonderful support...emotionally and financially (yesterday, she assured me she would make sure my claims were being filed on the right schedule etc). The hygienists Olson and Cheryl are really cool. Once my daughter’s braces are removed, we will likely move on, unless Olivia agrees to doublecheck billing for me a couple times a year."

T.F. | Google

"I love this place! I've never waited a long time to be seen and I don't feel any pain when I leave.Good people and great service!"

M.J. | Google

"I was very skeptical in choosing this facility. The person who took my initial call seemed to just want to get me off the phone and messed up my demographics when I arrived for the appt I had to fix thst however , everyone was beyond helpful. The oral surgeon Dr Jason was awesome. I would absolutely return . I have an unnatural fear of dentist and his assistant Melissa was amazing . Thank you for such a pleasant experience"

A.V. | Google

"I had an appointment for 10am to get my wisdom teeth removed and due to a scheduling error, I wasn't seen until after 11. This was my second appointment to get my wisdom teeth out, my previous time there I was waiting for almost 3 hours and had to leave. I think they over schedule for oral surgery because I was told two other people also had appointments for oral surgery at 10am but there's only one oral surgeon??? I still give my experience 4 stars because the staff at this office are wonderful. Everyone was extremely friendly and accomodating. I was pretty nervous to have the oral surgery and everyone was so nice and comforting and really made me feel better. I would just suggest that they work on the scheduling"

S.L. | Google

"The Dental Hygienist's do excellent work and are always so very nice and professional and I love the friendly nature of the majority of the staff. On the other hand I believe the receptionist may be new. She doesn't seem as friendly and professional as the rest of the staff, but maybe with some additional customer service training she will catch on quickly. She seems just a tad bit impatient with questions from patients and it a bit of a smart aleck in my opinion, but overall when it comes to the real dental work, the Dentist's and Dental Hygienist's here are top notch."

F.F. | Google

"My hygienist is the bomb if wasn't for her i would give less stars the front desk are usually rude most of the time they have an attitude and over the phone is even worst if you have to reschedule they don't have apt available around your schedule till like 2 months sometimes also they do not try to work with you to schedule you for the apt unless yo keep insisting this has happened to me in 3 different occasions when they will say yeah we don't have any apt for that day we are booked and from there if i don't keep digging they would just hanged up on me, bottom line the work done in my teeths is good and my hygienist is the best but the front desk staff are rude and their customer service experience overall is poor in my opinion"

F.V. | Google

"The services offered was very good, the Doctor explained the two(2 different oral surgery that I had questions about. After the procedure was finished he explained to me what I needed to do for the healing process."

G.J. | Google

"Great discounts. Dr. Mimms is the best. Ask for her."
