Patient Comments (5)

Dr Meyers and his staff were the best! I was a new patient with an emergency so they worked me in their full schedule. Dr Meyers is a friend of my father, 25yr friendship, and that made my experience with him even better. He and his assistant, I think her name was Laura, were very gentle with me. He made sure I was feeling no pain by numbing my mouth up real good, they both had an excellent bedside manner and really took care of me. I will definitely go back to him for any future dental work
Exceptional customer service - definitely took the edge of visiting the dentist off for me. I have recommended American Family Dentistry to many of my co-workers and friends.
I appreciate fitting me in for an unscheduled appt.
Good job by all.

Overall I had a very bad experience. He was extremely dismissive about my symptoms. As a patient coming in with questions and concerns, he could have spent some time explaining why I had what I had rather than saying it'll go away with time. If possible, find another.
