Care Philosophy

I seek to treat others with what I consider to be an even better version of the golden rule- Treat others as THEY want to be treated! When patients come to see me, I will address their chief concern first and foremost. I LISTEN to what they say. If they would like me to assess their dental health comprehensively, we complete a thorough exam, after which I explain in plain terms what is going on, and what can be done about it. I hate being "sold" to, and I make sure to never do that to my patient-family (yes, I treat my patients like family!). I like people a lot, and when I meet my new patients, I am most happy when they decide they want me to be their dentist for life! I then make sure that I treat them right, do the best work for them, with utmost care for pain control (ask any of my patients about my injections!) and fairness. Especially as I will be in Ocala for the rest of my career and I do care about my reputation, I will never cut a corner or accept anything less than the best.Read more

Dr. Simon Amir is amazing. I have worked in the dental field for the past 15 years and have worked beside many dentists. If someone asks me for a recommendation .....he's my number one choice. He is the most gentle and caring dentist you will meet and not to mention his exceptional dental work. He has worked on me personally and my family and there's no doubt, he is genuine!! Trust me, you will love him too!!

Dr.Amir is one of the nicest and gentle dentists ever. I was extremely scared of going in to get some work done, and when he numbed me I didn't feel anything. He was so gentle and made sure I was comfortable in his chair. He even called me after hours to see how I was doing! I would highly recommend him to anyone!!! The BEST dentist ever!!!!!!!!

I have been using Dr. Amir's services for a number of years now and am thoroughly happy with everything he has done for me. Both intense work and lighter work on my teeth. He is very professional and also sincerely concerned about the overall health of my mouth. Everything he has done for me has been exceptional.

I was recommended Dr. Amir by a co-worker and friend, however my experience just to schedule was a turn off. First impression are vital in a business. When your receptionist can recommend that you find another dentist chances are you have the wrong place.
Unfortunately this was at the corporate practice I used to work at. I'm sorry it was a poor experience.

I really appreciated the friendliness of everyone in the office. Dr. Simon was extremely personable and was great about explaining what he was going to do beforehand. He made sure I was comfortable throughout the visit, and I felt very well looked-after. I sent my husband in as well, and recommend him to all of our friends!

Dr. Amir says...

I was born and raised in London, England, and moved to Florida in 9th grade. My dad is a dentist, and we practically grew up in a dental office. In high school I realized that I wanted to follow in his footsteps, so I volunteered after school for many months in a dental laboratory so I could learn about dentistry. My brother and I always have worked with our hands- we are both proficient guitarists who initially wanted to be rock stars! After allowing my dreams of rock stardom to subside, I was accepted to the University of Florida College of Dentistry's early admissions program (I did my dental school interview at 16 years old!), and upon graduation decided I wanted to stay in this area. After working with a part-time professor for my first job, I began working in Ocala in 2004, and am now opening my own practice. My twin brother, Dr. Jamie Amir is a periodontist (gum disease and implant specialist) and opened his own office in 2015.

I am thrilled to reside in this great community with my lovely wife Adela and son Tristan.

Dr. Amir says...

I enjoy and excel at many aspects of dentistry (if I may say so myself!)-

-treating patients with complex restorative and esthetic needs, including full-mouth rehabilitation.

-treating dental scaredy-cats (I will show you how to erase your dental fears permanently!)

-all aspects of routine dental care for families

-treating children as young as 6 years old. 

Dr. Amir says...

I continuously seek out new knowledge in dentistry and am confident in delivering top-notch care, using the best techniques and materials available, in a kind and gentle manner.

We use an incredible local dental studio for all our esthetic cases including veneers, crowns, bridges, implants and dentures. They are masters at their craft and we enjoy working together. Unfortunately, nowadays there is a trend towards outsourcing dental lab work to labs in foreign countries-something I will never do.
