My father is a retired dentist. I know a great dental practice when I see it. Dr. Dorociak was actually referred to me by another retired dentist who is Dr. Dorociak's patient. I have complete confidence in Dr. Dorociak and his staff. I will be happy to talk with anyone about our complete satisfaction. We're fortunate to have such a fine dental professional in our town.My hygienist, Colette, is excellent. She gets me in and out efficiently and is a pleasure to deal with during my cleanings. She is sharp and recognizes issues which makes me feel confident in my treatment. Colette is a real pro!I cannot imagine a more "perfect" practice. While I cannot think of a single thing to suggest, I'm sure Dr. Dorociak will continue to try to improve an already EXCELLENT dental practice. BRAVO!!!

I was referred to Dr. Ortiz and his team for a root canal by my primary dentist. It was my 1st root canal, so I was apprehensive but I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Ortiz is warm, friendly, concerned for patient well-being and skilled. He also has all types of hi-tech gadgets so he can see problematic areas that the naked eye cannot detect. Another plus is that he sings a little bit during the procedure (pretty voice too!), which totally put me at ease because it was a sign that he was comfortable, so it made me all the more relaxed. I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Ortiz and his staff- for a root canal, I had a lovely time :) Sarasota is lucky that he established his practice here. Dr. Ortiz gets an A++ from me.

Todd J Reuter DDS
Dr. Reuter is fantastic!! I love going into his office and seeing his friendly staff. But what I love most of all is being his patient. He gets to know all of his patients on a really personal level and lets you know that as a patient, he really cares about your well being. I always feel like I have great doctor/patient communication with him and like he's always willing to listen to my concerns. He makes everything comfortable and an enjoyable experience! I would recommend him to any one for any kind of procedure. I really like how he always calls his patients after surgery, it adds a great personal touch and shows that he truly cares.

I HAVE HAD 3 CROWNS AND 1 BRIDGE PLUS 2 FILLINGS. MY APPT. WAS AT 7 A.M. AND NO DELAY. I HAVE BEEN HERE ONCE BEFORE AND FOUND I DID WAIT A LONG TIME, BUT I WAS TOLD AHEAD OF TIME THAT THIS WAS TO BE EXPECTED. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE WORK AND THE STAFF. YOU ARE PAYING LESS THAN YOU WOULD AT A PRIVATE DENTIST, AND YOU MAY WAIT FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME THAN YOU DO AT YOUR PRIVATE DENTIST. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF DENTAL WORK OVER THE YEARS AND I WAS VERY SUSPICIOUS OF THIS CLINIC. I LET THEM DO ONE CROWN AS A "TEST" AND NOW I HAVE JUST LEFT THE CLINIC WITH 5 HOURS OF WORK DONE. I WILL GO BACK.

Simply the Best! I have been a patient of Dr. Dorociak's for over twenty years . I have had nothing but great experiences. He and his team are professional, caring, and pain free. He approaches every patient with honesty and integrity combining both his skill and humor to create the best treatment possible.His office is state-of-the-art and you can once again enjoy going to the dentist. Come see the dentist who was voted Best of the Best and Top Dentist by his peers. I continue to refer my family and friends to Dr. Dorociak and his exceptional practice.

Although the very term "root canal" sends chills down my spine, Dr. Ortiz performed this dreaded procedure with a minimum of discomfort and an excellent result. Not only is Dr. Ortiz a highly trained specialist, he kept me informed as he proceeded step by step laced with good humor. His blend of professionalism and personal skills are shared by his capable staff, whose teamwork from the receptionist to dental assistants are dedicated to the comfort and needs of the patient.

(5 stars) Caring & SkilledI'm new to the area & very fortunate to find such an awesome dentist with a great support staff. Dr. Dorociak tells it like it is & gives you options. He treats you like family. This is the first time I have had a dentist who actually sits down with you, looks you in the & tells you what's needed & what he is going to do. His support staff, Sandy, Amanda, Gwen & Tiffany were very helpful, professional & informative.

Overall great experience. People are normally scared of the dentist. I HIGHLY recommend doctor B and Alexis. Those two together are the dream team. Alexis is so knowledgeable, Mature and just a pleasure to be around. She will make you the most comfortable. Doc b does injections like you wouldn't believe. You cannot feel it!!!!! Please go to this dentist office. As I said, doc b and alexis are IT!

Dr. Thomas A. Bowles
Dr. Bowles and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I am always very pleased with the care that I receive when I come in. My dental hygienist, Dale Ann, is knowledgeable, gentle, and extremely thorough. I love the way my teeth feel after each visit. I couldn’t ask for a better team of professionals.
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
