What Our Patients Have To Say
“I’ve been looking to switch Dentist for a while now and never found one that I felt comfortable with. From beginning to end the entire experience was incredible. They truly care about their patients. I’m glad I made the switch.”
- Ashley C.
“Always excellent! This is the 1st dentist office that I’ve been to, other than when I used to go to my childhood dentist’s office, that I feel completely comfortable with. The staff is always excellent and informative! You can really tell they have your best interests at heart. Keep up the great work!”
“Fantastic staff and great service! Everyone there is so nice. It is great to see some people still believe in customer service.”
“I had a new patient exam and cleaning with Hood Dentistry today. From the time I walked in the door, I knew I chose the right place! The girls at the front desk were very welcoming and polite. Brianne was the dental assistant who worked on me. She is so nice! She immediately made me feel comfortable. After my cleaning, she did a Fluoride treatment. My hygienist was Cheryl. She was very thorough as well as informative. I would go as far to say that Cheryl probably gave the best cleaning I’ve ever had! Dr Mindy Moore was the dentist who saw me. She was super sweet! Dr Moore went over everything with me and answered any and all of my questions. Overall I was extremely pleased with my experience at Hood Family Dentistry!”
“I absolutely love this dental clinic! I’m a new patient, and when I went in for my first visit, everyone was exceptionally courteous and nice to me. Not only that, but my wait time was minimal and they finished my exam and cleaning within an hour! I’m definitely going back for all my dental needs and I highly recommend them for anyone who wants a pleasant visit to the dentist.”
“The entire staff is extremely nice and helpful. I had the best experience with Mrs. Kasie and Dr. Ed Hood. They made sure everything was comfortable for me during my visits. I didn’t have insurance, so I signed up for their Quality Care Membership. My x-rays were reviewed with me, and I got a detailed list and explanation of all the work I needed. They were able to do work on 12 of my teeth in only 2 days. Dr. Hood even stayed late working on my teeth one night. I got a root canal, 4 crowns, 3 old silver fillings replaced, and 5 new fillings. I am very pleased with the quality of their work, and my teeth look wonderful. The crowns look very natural. I will be going to Hood Dental Care for all of my future dental needs and recommending them to anyone who needs dental care!”
