The entire Dental Team - friendly and warm. Dr Harper and his team are extremely knowledgeable in their field. I've recently had to change hygienists after almost 20 years- my new hygienist With Dr Harpers office is extremely gentle and thorough - my first visit was beyond successful. I never once felt the stress of a dental appointment - more so like a visit with long lost family. Highly recommend to anyone. Looking forward to my next visit!
Dr. Harper and his staff are always friendly and willing to work with work schedules for scheduling. I feel very comfident with his knowledge and recommendations for my dental needs. He is compassionate and gentle in his technique and I am very pleased with my care.
From the front desk staff, dental assistants and Dr. Harper himself, this office is second to none. Having moved to Florida from the NY, needing dental work, I was very disappointed with several dentists from office staff, cleanliness, and professional ability that I tried in Florida. Fortunately, a dental sales representative recommended Dr. Harper to me when I told the rep. that I was moving to Ocala. Dr. Harper has such an easy going manner and always keeps you informe...
Oustanding experience, very lucky to be sent to this office from Dr. Brooks.
He's been great!
The staff always goes above and beyond to make each visit a pleasant experience.
Over 20 years and always outstanding care.
I had a bit of out of the norm work needing done, Dr. Harper and is staff worked hard to get the information they needed to insure an excellent job be done. They went over and above what anyone would expect on finding out past info from prior dentist in Jax, Fl. Everything is going along wonderful!
All of my mouth is crowns or a partial except for three teeth. Dr. Harper and his staff have handled me with professional kid gloves because they know of my fear in the dental office. He is the most caring dentist I have ever had. He has explained all procedures to me and tried in vain to save some of my teeth. I have dry mouth and decay is a certainty for me. When I had to have extractions for a bridge, his assistant Mary Ann would pat my shoulder and she had tears ...

Best experience i have ever had at a dental office. Dr. Harper and his staff are true professionals who care about their patients unlike anything I have seen. They are up-front and let you know what is going on at every step. I was amazed at the technology that he uses in his office. I was able to see what was going on and what he was doing. He explained everything and answered all my questions. His assistant Pam is just wonderful. Him and her work together without missing a beat. Thanks

Dr. Harper and his team are truly an exceptional practice! I am a dental hygienist in Michigan and after visiting his office and discussing my husband's case and options, we decided to have Dr. Harper reconstruct his upper and lower teeth. We made the right decision with this investment! He truly is a master of his craft. With my 40 yrs working in dental offices, I can tell you, his training and talent to be qualified to create such beautiful smiles is unparalleled in the field of dentistry! .

Dr. Harper and his staff operate a professional and well functioning dental practice. My husband and I have been patients of his for almost twenty years. We have been extremely satisfied with the services that he provides. His staff makes you feel like you are their top priority and treat you like family. If you or someone you know is new to the area or simply looking for a dental team, we suggest you give them a try. You will always leave their office with a smile. Paige/Dave Falcone
