From Nicole at the front desk, to the dentist I first saw. All these people are truly team players, especially my favorite gal Troy! I received the best care EVER, with Troy's help and perfect explanations, I received my full upper denture and my bottom partials. Had it not been for their understanding and kindness, I never would have had gotten my perfect teeth, I received today, after many trial and. errors. But had it not been for all the people working together, special people, like my family, I totally trusted everyone! Even making friends.This is the place to go to for all your needs, love the people, love the environment,love their work.I now have what they " promised", a perfect smile. I just love them.Troy, thank you for your honesty and being there to help me with my choices.

South Tampa Dentistry
Yesterday was my first visit at Dr. Wyatt's office. I have worked in the medical for more than 4yrs and I have never seen an office so friendly and organized like South Tampa Dentistry. Dr. Wyatt was very pleasant and attentive to my concerns, his staff went above and beyond to make my visit as pleasant as possible paying attention to every detail and facial expression I was having. During my appointment I had a couple of procedures done and that same evening Dr. Wyatt himself took the time to call me and make sure I was doing alright. I have never witnessed another dentist show this care and attention to his patient in my entire life. There was a new employee who had only been part of the practice for I believe a week and Dr. Wyatt was very patient with her encouraging her throughout the entire visit showing her where the supplies were kept and telling her step by step what to do. Which being in the patient position this was very pleasant to see. If you are in search of a new dentist this is the dentist to go without a doubt!

Mark S Farina DMD PA
I can't thank Dr. Farina and his warm and loving staff enough. I moved to Florida from California wearing metal braces for only a few months and needed an ortho that could finish my treatment because my teeth were stubborn and not shifting correctly after invisalign (also) failed .. and after getting a consultation with Dr. Farina I knew he would straighten my teeth to the way I imagined my smile would be. His initial exam was thorough and he figured out my jaw alignment issues and also accommodated my teeth pickiness - I was particularly bothered about some teeth. Being a transfer patient wasn't stressful at all and the progress he made with my teeth was phenomenal. He's an extremely friendly and eccentric doctor and going to his office was always a pleasure. Not only did my braces come off within the time frame he had predicted, he also shaped my teeth and polished it to my liking which i'm extremely happy with. If I could give his business more stars, I definitely would. Thank you!

Nora Delgado-Velasquez
Going to the dentist can be a stressful time. I have never felt that way at Nora Delgado, DDS. They truly have the friendliest and most competent staff I have ever experienced. From the minute I walk in the door, I was greeted with a warm welcome. The facility is very clean, new and relaxing. Dr Nora and Al provide great, compassionate care. They have always been timely, friendly and knowledgeable. I am always happy with my dental work, I know if I have a question or concern it will be answered with the same warm and caring attention, I have been going there for years, and they have truly made me feel part of the family. I would and already have highly recommend Dr. Nora to anyone looking for a long term dentist they can rely on and trust!

ZM Dental
Dr. Z is the most amazing, caring and knowledgeable Prosthodontist. I had my third cleaning today and no longer fear going to the dentist. Her primary concern is her patient's comfort and it shows. I will not be seen by anyone else!Both of my sons (6 & 8 yo) went to see her for the first time today and they absolutely trusted and love her. She is the first dentist that has been able to successfully take their x-rays and perform a thorough cleaning without them budging or in discomfort.You are without a doubt, the BEST! (-:

Ruelf Michael J DDS
My daughter had the biggest fear of dentist for years. I've searched and searched for just one dentist to hear my concerns. For one to take his or time with my daughter, to explain what's going to happen and assure her that she wouldn't to be lied to. From day one, Dr. Ruelf and his staff were just wonderful. My daughter looks forward to go and never again felt scared. When ever i had a concern, they made me feel like it was a genuine concern. Dr. Ruelf and his staff are simply the best

Smile Bright Dental
i'm extremely pleased!! From the front office to the back..... every one was so kind and caring. i came in because I had a horrible tooth ache, my previous dentist told me I needed a root canal, but in fact This office told me I just needed to crown my tooth only. They crowned my tooth and cleaned my teeth in the same day.The Hygienist was wonderful! The Dr and the staff were very friendly and made me feel comfortable! I HIGHLY recommend this office to all my family and friends :)

B Dotson Joseph
For the first time ever, I've never dreaded dental appointments. The staff are kind, friendly, and don't make you feel like a gross human when they do your cleanings. Dr. Dotson is one of the kindest people I've ever met. He is great about making sure you're fully "numb" before starting any kind of dental work where anesthesia is preferred. I recommend him to everyone, including my friends who already have dentists. I wish I'd had this kind of dental experience when I was younger.

Smith, Monica B, DDS
I have seen Dr. Smith several times now, after moving from NY to FL, I really needed a dentist that I could trust. I was so satisfied with the results of my dental work, I won't go to any other dentist. The office was really professional and clean. The TV's and the technology that you see inside the dentist chair was out of this world. Loved to talk with Luisa, and the rest of staff there, they are so friendly and caring, about your well being so much.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
