What People Say About Dr. David Potts, DDS
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

I saw Dr. Potts yesterday ; I was and still I am speechless. Never having seen me before, he was kind, attentive, professional and realized that with all the equipment in my mouth, I was not able to talk, but he made time to explain things to me either before, during or after the procedure. That necessary evil, the novocain injection, wasn't felt; I was pleasantly surprised! The first visit included a thorough exam, a care plan was made and I rec'd a copy. I found that quite respectful. No pain!

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.

Dr. Potts spends a bit less time with regular patients but is always friendly and does terrific work. His hygienists (Michelle in particular) are careful, thorough and have good chair-side manner.

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.

Great combination of utmost professionalism and cordial and warm caring attitude. Dr. Potts and his entire staff are simply the best. Dr. Potts has that old world perfection ethic - dentistry as an art as well as a science. I will never go anywhere else as long as Dr. Potts and his staff are there.

Dr. Potts is very invested in patient care. When I first came to the practice, he was determined to get my mouth in good shape. I needed a couple (few?) crowns, plus a root canal. We discussed his use of conscious sedation, and it was great for me. I had all that work done in one visit, with only one follow-up, to place the finished crowns. Not cheap, but NO physical pain. He taught me how (aside from brushing) to take care of my mouth, and I feel like I'm (literally) in good hands now.

Have had a great experience with Dr. Potts for many years however, his staff created a very uncomfortable experience. No longer will my family and I be using this office's services. The entire front end staff needs revamping, completely failed in the professionalism department and proper treatment of people. Such vile individuals...it's utterly disgusting.
