    Oakwood Smiles
    How many people enjoy going to the dentist? If you said, "Not me!" then you need to experience the care and service that you'll receive at Oakwood smiles. I have never walked in the door without a greeting, by name, from the staff. The office is beautiful and feels more like you're waiting in a spa, not a dentist office. Tammy does a wonderful job of working with you on billing and insurance. The hygienists there know what they are doing, and they make getting your teeth cleaned a painless process. They are conscientious in their work but keep the mood light. That's helpful for a nervous patient. Your smile will never look brighter. Dr. Gritziv is the best of the best. Whether his work includes filling a cavity, capping a tooth or making a bridge, he is a perfectionist who makes sure your experience is painless. What impresses me the most about him is his caring nature. If you're having serious work done, don't be surprised to get a follow up phone call that evening, to be sure you're doing well. That's exceptional. That's Oakwood Smiles!

    I went right at opening because I had been in severe, excruciating pain all night. Despite clearly being in extreme distress (but still managing to be polite) - the front desk was very cold, handed me tons of forms - most totally unnecessary -to fill out and wouldn't even take my ID or insurance card until I was finished. Finally I was hurting so badly I basically begged them to at least ask a nurse to step into the waiting room and speak to me for just a second - an ice/warm pack - aspirin - ANYTHING - but the receptionist was uninterested and short. After the eternity she spent just getting to speak to a representative to verify my insurance - she gave them my policy number, said "I see. Thank you" instead of discussing anything with me (standing directly in front of her....) and hung up. She told me it expired in 2009 even though she was holding my insurance card that said I purchased the policy in Jan. of 2016. When she picked up the phone to call them back - I told her I'd pay cash and file it. She actually told me I was in TOO much pain to be treated and needed to LEAVE and go to the ER or urgent care and come back! (She wasn't even part of the clinical staff!!). Ughhh... I had to do just that because an hour and a half had gone by and I had made ZERO progress in getting help! I did just that - and when I got back with my pain controlled I called my insurance and the agent had no problem finding my policy. I offered the receptionist my phone but she said she had to call the provider number. While I was still on with one agent she called, said I see and hung up - then said my policy expired!! After another million years we got the insurance verified, the dentist was able to glance in my mouth for ten seconds - and wrote a script for pain medicine and antibiotics and sent me on my way. At checkout the desk person said the computer rejected my insurance and charged me cash. I was frustrated that we went through the entire verufication process with my insurance and still it wasn't verified - but she said they'd file it. For some stupid reason, I tried several times to get a follow up to start on the restorative work I need and was not only unable to get an appointment - as they kept saying the coordinator was going to call so we could create a strategy and then no one would call me - but the second and third (last) time I called they made it very clear they didn't want me as a patient. It wasn't that I was too difficult - they were implying they were skeptical I could afford the work I needed and I was beneath their practice! My teeth are in horrible shape from being extremely ill - but it shouldn't matter - and I paid cash for the first visit!! I found another dentist I LOVE - but still was unable to get them to ever file my original claim... HORRIBLE!! HORRIBLE.

    I'm very pleased with them! They changed ownership a couple years back, and everything operates incredibly smoothly since. The facility and equipment is all up-to-date. The staff is very well-trained. I've never experienced a more delicate touch when a hygienist is doing a cleaning. It's impressive!

    Leonard, Dr. Gary C
    I showed up when they opened. They worked me in immediately without an appointment and identified the problem and fixed it. I would highly recommend Dr. Gary Leonard and his professional staff to family and friends.

    Merritt, Gary P
    He's a no-nonsense doctor. He's a good doctor but he doesn't small talk. He doesn't make you feel like you'd want to hang out with him. He's a business doctor. The staff are nice. He's a good doctor. He's not an overly frienl

    Cumming Dental Associates
    Our dentist Kristen McDonald is a wonderful dentist and person. She is very gentle and can put you at ease if you don't love going to the dentist. I have Recomended my Brother to Kristen and he too was very happy with the services she provided to fix his tooth ache he had and my parents are also going to make an appointment as they moved to the area and also need a new dentist too. I wound certainly recommend Cumming Dental.

    Peets, III, Dr. Norman D.
    He has done a lot of extensive work on me and he's very good. I like his staff and I like him. I've seen his work and he has worked on everyone of his staff members and they're still there and their teeth are still in. The staff are all friendly and just as nice as they can be and are always consistent.  There is none of them that are you'll never know what kind of mood they're going to be in when you get there. They're always the same and when you talk to them on the phone, they're like that as well. He's the dentist of choice. I've been to a lot of them in my lifetime and he is on the top, he's the best.

    Stephanie Greene DMD
    She is the best dentist in the world. I got her at home one night and of course her business office was well over. I didn't know what else to do and so I called her line. She and her sister told my husband to bring him to the office at night. She's wonderful and really good. Her girls are really good and they know you by name. She's one in a million and I would recommend Dr. Greene. I've been using her for 8 years. She's always fair and we haven't had any problem with the teeth when I went there.

    McDonald, Dr. Kristen- Cumming Dental Associates
    I have to say that after going to the dentist twice per year for the last 40 years I can't say I really enjoy going, but who really does? But the experiences that I have had here at Cumming Dental have been second to none. I started cumming here 2 years ago and each time my wife and I have came it has been outstanding. The have always got us in right on time with almost no waiting. Everyone from the receptionist, the hygienist, the dentists and the people in billing are very professional, personable and they make you feel right at home. I have never been to a dentist this large before and feel so welcome. I love how clean and tidy everything is from the outside appearance of the building to the dental rooms and even the bathrooms are very well cared for. You can tell they take a lot of pride and everyone seems to really enjoy being there and it shows. When my brother called me in November, who is an over the road truck driver and said he has had a tooth that was really bothering him and keeping him from sleeping at night I called Cumming Dental. I told them of his situation and he would be rolling into town
    around Thanks Giving and I asked to make him an appointment but I couldn't guarantee he would make it on time due to traffic, weather etc. and they were very flexible and said it wouldn't be a problem. We asked for the latest appointment they had on the last day before the holiday and he would try to get there. When I told them that he was very limited on funds and had no insurance, they said not to worry they would work it out. My brother Marc did get in town and was there for the last appointment. Little did we know that he did need to have a tooth pulled and some other work which took a little longer then we expected but his Dentist, Kristen McDonald and some of the staff stayed late on the eve of a holiday and made sure he got the best care they could possibly provide. When my brother came out of there, yea he was talking a little funny because his mouth was numb but he told me that he had never had a dentist that was so gentle and seemed so caring for how he was treated
    then Kristen. He said she pulled his tooth and took care of his issue and he had no pain whatsoever during the procedure and little discomfort after. He was amazed on the job that she had done. Plus he said the cost was so much less then he expected it to be and he was just thrilled with the entire experience. He was able to sleep like a baby that night and was back on the road after the holiday. Well, all of that happened seven months ago and I had to go in for my 6 month check up in March and
    guess what happened? The same exact thing. I got in on time. I was welcomed, the hygienist did a great job with my cleaning without any discomfort and Kristen greeted me with a big smile and asked me how my brother was doing. I just cant say enough about Kristen and Cumming Dental. Unfortunately I do have a lot of fillings that I have gotten over the years when I was a kid and I had an old filling that was done 15 or 20 years ago when I lived in NY that had cracked that I never knew about and Dr. McDonald found it during my check up and said it needed to be redone. They booked another appointment for me when it was convenient for me to come back just a few weeks ago in May. As I said I have gotten a lot of fillings over the years when I was younger and NONE of them were very pleasurable even with having my mouth numb but I must say with Dr. McDonald I never felt a thing. She drilled out the old filling and replaced it with a new one and I didn't feel the shot to get me numb and I didn't feel any discomfort at all. Kristen talked to me during the entire process and told me what she was doing before she did it and and made me feel very comfortable. I have never had a dentist that made me feel as comfortable as Kristen does. My parents are in their 70's and just moved to Cumming from NY this past year and need a new dentist so I know where they will be going. If you are looking for a Dentist, I give Cumming Dental, Kristen McDonald and the entire staff an A+.

    Stephanie Greene DMD
    The office was pleasant. Staff were very friendly and efficient. I did not have to wait. They did digital Xrays right in the dental chair, then did the cleaning. The procedure was comfortable and painless. Dr. Greene examined my teeth and read the Xrays. She explained to me all of her considerations and answered my questions. She was friendly and professional.
    My teeth feel great and I know what to expect. I could not be more pleased. I feel very lucky to have a great new dentist and I look forward to future visits. There were no surprises cost wise. They made me feel welcome and important. This was even better than I had hoped.
