Everyone in the office was very attentive and friendly. They worked me in as a new Patient because of a broken tooth I had that was causing some pain. The Dr. that examined my mouth/tooth was very informative. I will schedule a regular visit and return to this office. I recommend!

Thank you all!

1 2 3 4 5Selina 21/08/2021

I love Dr Smith and the hygienist at this office! They always treat me so well. From as soon as I walk in the door, I’m always greeted by name. I’m so glad that an old co worker of mine named Carter Harmon told me about them. I told him I was looking for a dentist and he recommended southern shores. I still remember when he called the office and gave them my information. They reached out to me the same day to set me up an appointment. I’m so grateful for that. Southern shores has exceeded my expectations and always continues to do this! I’m grateful also for Their receptionists because they are wonderful people who are understanding and explain all of My questions and are so patient. Shout out to Joci and Taylor! Also my hygienist Ms Crystal and Amy are a pleasure! I wanted to bring my mom here as well , I knew she would love you guys but she has an out of state insure and this practice isn’t in her network but they treated her so nice the day we came in with questions. Love you all!
