    I am new to the area, and unfortunately had a crown come off before my next dental cleaning timeframe, so I had not established a dentist yet. I... called the Georgia Smile Team, and they worked a schedule so that I could be seen the next day for at least an evaluation of what needed to be done.Later, in the afternoon, they called me back and told me they had had a cleaning cancellation, and what I like to come in for the cleaning, and have the evaluation at the same time. This was almost unheard of! Upon arrival, I was taken to an exam room within 10 minutes, had an amazing hygienist (Krista) and a dental assistant work with Dr Yassin to do X-rays, cleaning, and re-seating of the crown temporarily. Three weeks later the crown fell off, before my next scheduled appt to make a new one. The tooth became very sensitive over a couple of days. Again, I called to ask if there was anything I could do to help get me to that next appointment. They worked me in that day, and Dr Yassin graciously not only made me a temporary crown, but also worked with a laser to further decrease gum inflammation in anticipation of getting the new crown 1 week later. Both times the staff has been nothing but stellar; from the front desk to the back office dental team. Even the billing, my cost vs insurance, was explained up front, and not complicated. As a medical provider myself, I have been very impressed with their services, care, and expertise.read more

    Best experience ever with the Georgia Smiles Team and Dr. Dunford! I have had many horrible experiences in the past with other dental offices,... particular the dentist. I have neglected crowns, fillings, general cleaning, etc due to being scared to death of having another tortured, high anxiety dental experience. After doing lots and lots of research, I have finally found a dental group that I love and trust without any anxiety of the dentist! Thank you Georgia Smiles and Dr. Matt Dunford! I can now get my beautiful smile back while trusting that I my experience will be comfortable, relaxing, and personalized! Shout out to Krista!!!! You are amazing!!! Thank you!!!read more

Amber, the hygienist, is so wonderful!! Even at age 65, I get anxious going to the dentist, but Amber was amazing…. sweet but professional, gentle, and very knowledgeable and efficient. She answered every one of my questions! Dr. Dunford was the same!! They are very transparent… about what needs to be done going forward, and financial considerations. The ladies at the desk for checkin/out were wonderful too. I was so grateful for this positive experience, and I highly recommend this dentist office!read more

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Dentistry is a field of medicine that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing oral health problems. Regular dental visits are suggested by our Gainesville, GA dentist for preventative treatment and early identification of dental diseases.

    If you’re in search of a dentist near me or a dentist in Gainesville, seek recommendations from family, friends, neighbours, or coworkers. Consult your primary healthcare provider or use internet directories or search engines.

    Visiting the dentist in Gainesville on a regular basis is essential for maintaining excellent dental health. Dentists can detect and treat tooth issues early on, allowing them to be treated before they spread. Routine cleanings and check-ups also aid in the prevention of disorders including cavities, gum disease, and oral infections.

    You should anticipate a comprehensive inspection of your teeth and gums at your initial appointment at a dental clinic near you, which may involve dental X-rays. The dentist will discuss with you your dental health, address any concerns, and advise you on basic oral hygiene habits.

    Teeth decay is mostly caused by the interaction of bacteria in the mouth with sugary or starchy meals and beverages. Poor oral hygiene and a lack of regular dental check-ups with a dentist near you can also contribute to tooth decay.

    If you have a dental emergency, please contact our dental clinic in Gainesville as soon as possible. If it is after office hours, consider contacting an emergency dental clinic or an on-call dentist. They can offer assistance, information, and the required treatment to address your dental emergency promptly.
