I have had one crown done, and now my new patient cleaning. It was very thorough. Melanie took extensive Xrays, checked for any evidence of mouth cancer, and then did a thorough cleaning. She was great about explaining what she was going to do before she did it. Afterward Dr DeFint also checked for mouth cancer and checked all of my teeth. I felt well cared for.

Had a crown put on and I must confess going to the dentist is not my strong suit. It was painless, easy and the Dr. and staff are always friendly and helpful. Your well-being is always first and foremost with this dentist office. You will not be disappointed choosing this dentist for all your dental care.

Because of a broken jaw, I’ve been to many Dentists through the years and I needed another tooth pulled. This really was the most comfortable dental surgery I’ve had. Dr DeFont must be very experienced. The staff couldn’t have been more cordial and professional. I’m happy to have him for my dentist and will certainly recommend him.

Second time having Sallie for my hygienist. Very personable, educated, and gentle. She explained all procedures well. Was very cautious with teeth needing further dental attention. It's difficult to change care providers when you've had such good care prior, but Sallie has erased all those fears. Hope she doesn't need to leave this office. All of Dr. DeFont's staff work together and as mentioned by others, its obvious the work environment is very cohesive. Staff wouldn't stay if they weren't led by an excellent practitioner. That is Dr. DeFont.

Our first experience was awesome!!! I took my daughter in for her first dental visit. It was my first time in the office and I’m now switching myself to be a patient also. Our hygienist Sallie was very welcoming and so good with my daughter. She made it very fun and interactive. Dr.Defont was also incredibly kind and made us feel like we’ve been patients for years. It honestly didn’t feel like our first visit at all.

I actually like going to the dentist now! Had many broken teeth after 10 years of no dentist. My teeth are repaired and I'm more confident in my future dental healthcare. Don't need gas for cleanings for the first time. Dr and staff are so wonderful. I feel light when I walk in. Thanks to all there. I am so very grateful. Susie

I confess that I have been avoiding visiting a Dentist for over 5 years. This is in spite of having a molar that broke off at the gum some time ago. Yes, I had apprehensions of pain and unsatisfactory results, and I was concerned about the expense. But I've got to say how pleased I am that I overcame my excuses and became a patient of DeFont Family Dental. The cost was reasonable, the staff was friendly, professional and excellent. Every detail was clearly explained to me. I had a great cleaning, fine filling and a painless, easy extraction. Also, there was no waiting, and the work was done quickly! Doctor DeFont was friendly and his quiet confidence was very reassuring. I'm back on track thanks to DeFont Family Dental!

I went in for my 6-month teeth cleaning. Joelie noticed a spot on my tongue and asked Dr. DeFont to take a look at it. He said he would like me to come back in two weeeks to see if the spot had changed--it had not, so he referred me to an Oral Surgeon. I'm grateful for the Dr. and his staff. They are all very professional!

Dr. Defont is a top notch highly experienced and educated dentist that does everything. My previous retired dentist sent me elsewhere for Root Canals.

Believe it or not, I enjoy my teeth cleaning! Joelie is delightful and explains each of her procedures. I was even given a lovely lemon scented steamed towelette after my cleaning. Dr DeFont and his staff are always friendly and helpful!
