My visit was very good. I hadn't been to the dentist for a long time and really needed some comprehensive work. Dr S gave me all the options based on what was most cost effective for my scene and for what could happen if more teeth failed. I am very happy at the value of my dental treatment and would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Simmons and the entire staff are very professional, provide great service and are very friendly. I needed to get in for an appointment quickly - not an emergency but it was something that needed attention. They got me in on short notice and took care of the problem!

My family and I were patients of his for over a decade, we were never blown away nor were we dissatisfied. However on multiple occasions he recommended the most expensive procedure and two of us went to two other practices for second opinions and were told by each that he was obviously just trying to make money and not really prioritizing our dental health which was dissapointing. We no longer trust Dr. Simmons and are all happier at the different dentists we all ended up going to.

Worst Dental Experience Ever!! This is 16 months after 2 crowns were put in, bottom left side, by Dr. Simmons. Sept 2017-So the two temporary crowns gave me no problems. As soon as the permanent crowns were put in, my tooth and jaw pains began. I went back three times, from September to January 2018. The first two times, crowns were ground. Third time, biofreeze was sprayed on my left jaw. Was hurried out the door. Just had a 2nd dentist take a look, damage to tooth roots underneath new crowns.

Dr. Simmons took great care of our whole family. Excellent customer service from the moment we walked in the door (or even picked up the phone to schedule our appointments!) Very calm atmosphere. The first dentist/hygienist experience where I never felt guilty/embarrassed for a moment. Gentle cleanings, and great service.
