Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!!On vacation in Fort Myers and on the first day of my vacation I broke my tooth. :-(Unfortunately it was a Friday and she was closed however she still agreed to see me. Not only did she just take a look BUT she also fixed my tooth. I needed a crown and she was able to make it and put it on the SAME DAY. She did a terrific job on my tooth. After the numbing wore off, I was worried I might have pain or maybe the bite would be off (causing pain) BUT it was ALL GOOD. My tooth is perfect. No pain! No discomfort! I can not express how great my experience was with her. She was extremely caring, professional, and you can tells she loves doing her job (even though she was not even supposed to be working that day). If you are looking for a dentist, go see her!!! You will not be disappointed!!! I live in Atlanta, GA and I so satisfied with her service that I am thinking about going to her the next time I visit Fort Myers!!

Colonial Palms Real Estate On Treeline
Fantastic job! My wife and I had plans to purchase a home in Fort Myers. We had an idea of the area we wanted to live in, but we were not sure of which gated community to choose. A friend recommended that we call Colonial Palms Real Estate. They had the closest office to the communities we were interested in, so we figured they would know the area the best. They did an absolutely perfect job. Mary was a sweetheart and had all of the information on the various amenities & fees for each of the communities, and John was outstanding at determining the proper price for each home. They set up appointments for homes that fit what we were looking for, and answered every question we had. When we finally chose a home that we loved, they did an amazing job of negotiating. We could not be happier. Thank you Mary and John for all your help! On top of everything, they provided a free cruise as a buyer bonus.

Natural Dental and Denture
I had a crown installed at Natural Dental and Denture. The crown was installed in a timely manner. The procedure of preparing the crown as well as repairing two other teeth was prompt and professional. I was not comfortable with how it fit, so and they adjusted it according to what I requested.The pricing is excellent and the staff are professional and friendly.Crowns are $599. I had two teeth repaired and a crown installed for $1001, though I only paid $949 because there is a 5% discount if you pay with a check or cash. This is because they pass the savings of the credit card fees on to you.The office is relatively simple relative to what I was used to, but the service and staff exceeded my expectations.Dr. Victor Mckerlie is excellent, honest, quick, experienced and affordable.

John Hyatt DDS
We were visiting from out of town when i had a dental emergency on Friday night. I was panicked bc no one works on the weekend. I called 5 dif dentist in the area and Dr. Hyatt was the only one who called back. I explained what was going on and he met us on sat am and was able to fix my crown. He was patient, took his time, did not rush thru the job or try to rush us out of the office bc it was the weekend! He did a great job and bc if him i was able to enjoy the rest of our vacation! TX U Dr. Hyatt and I appreciate your kindness and taking time on your weekend!

Victor Mckerlie DMD
We used Dr McKerlie 3 times now and the wait time was minimal and the service was great. He bonded two of my teeth over 2 years ago that had chipped and they still are fine and bonded a chip on my wife's tooth with an excellent color match. His fees are comparable to what we pay for dental care in Latin America. His is a really clean well run office and he gives a discount for check or cash payment. He does not process any form of insurance, but will help you fill out your own forms if you need assistance.

Natural Dental and Denture
I had several procedures done at Natural Dental. I was very pleased with Dr. Vic. He did things to my teeth that other dentists told me they couldn't. I was told I needed a root canal and crown. Dr. Vic was able to repair the tooth, saving me money and pain. He did an exceptional job. Dr. Vic cares about his patients more than money. The staff treated me like family. I highly recommend going there for your dental needs!

Dr. Ringland made sure I wasn't in any pain throughout the procedure, and she used Cerec technology (CAD/CAM dentistry) so I was in and out of her office with new crowns in under 3 hours! She made sure the fit was absolutely perfect before I left, and her staff took great care of me. Great experience overall!!

Coast Dental
Dr Ben Lewis and the entire staff are extremely professional and friendly. I appreciate them so much because I use to really dread going to the dentist. The care they take to ensure my comfort before, during and after my care is awesome. I gladly recommend this dental office!

I love being a patient at Southwest Florida Dental for many reasons, one because I love going in for my visits and being able to talk with the staff, they are all very nice including the doctor. Not to mention I always get in very quickly, it is a great office.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
