My experience today and always with Dr. Potts is, well, how long do you have? He is amazingly intelligent, kind, thoughtful, professional and personable; much more and I'd sound like he paid me!! All kidding aside, he makes certain you understand everything. I've seen a few dentists in my life and he tops the list.

My experience is always great! I have had so many horrific experience’s with other dentist. Myself as well as my family see Dr. Potts. I have had some extensive work done on my teeth. I never worry because I know he will never let me feel pain or even experience anxiety. My procedures are always well explained along with all my options. He is just so NICE! The staff is always nice as well.

I’ve been going to this dentist for over 6 years. My dental hygienist, Sara, is awesome! After completing an oral exam, she noticed signs of sleep apnea and recommended a sleep evaluation. I’ve been complaining to my doctors about my fatigue for years. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and since started cpap therapy. I feel so much better. Thank you Sara! She made a lifetime difference in my health.

They ask all the right questions, they tailor your experience to meet your individual needs. I did Conscious Sedation with Dr. Potts group because of a severe gag reflex, and though some additional cost came through with flying colors. Will be back!

The highest professional standards, ethics, and practices ever see by a doctor. Truly cares and is concerned about his patient. I have been his patient for more than 36 years. He has replaced every tooth in my mouth. Other dentists, because I have two homes, have called their staff, in to look at his work. They have raved about Dr. Pott's work. This man is a true genius as a dentist and as a cosmetic dentist. I can so no more than one could be fortunate to be this doctor's patient.

This is a partnership - everything is explained and they even show me photos of my teeth. We planned all my treatments together. That's huge. Plus the costs are competitive. I feel you get what you pay for and, in this case, I'm getting the best.
