Best dentist and staff !!
My family of three generations have been seeing Dr. Potts and his staff since 2004. We love and respect Dr. Potts for his knowledge, passion, and patience to provide ultimate dental care to us. Everyone in the office is super kind and helpful and always makes our visits pleasant experience. I broke my crown after working too hard on a hard snack on one night and called office in the morning. Whitney immediately got me in on that day. Dr. Potts squeezed me in his busy schedule and got my crown fixed in the same visit. “We will get this done today. This will give you minimum interruption to your schedule.” That was what he said quietly then worked late to get a new crown for me. I am ever grateful to have a such caring dentist. Thank you Dr. Potts!!

I love and respect Dr. Potts so much! He has gotten my teeth and gums in good shape after not going to a dentist for a long time! I met Dr. Ola today and like her very much and I love my dental hygienist Maya who is very good and caring! I am so happy that I discovered Dr. Potts from a coworker that heard his advertisement on the radio and told me about it many years ago now!

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.
