My first visit with Dr. Elford & Staff. Very comfortable with everyone. I appreciated their noticing that a crown needed a small filling to ensure it wouldn’t need to be replaced. The hygienist, Tia, gave some helpful tips on how I might brush more effectively. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.

Very accommodating, super nice!

My teeth cleaning was thorough and painless. My hygienist gave good feedback and suggestions. Very up-to-date x-ray equipment; fast and comfortable. Dr. Elford is careful to watch potential problems but doesn't rush to fix them prematurely. I received a discount for paying by check. Overall very positive experience!

Got there early, and got seen early--cool--

It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Elford and his team: Melissa and Dr. Elford take good care of my teeth, and Shiela at the reception desk is unfailingly welcoming and helpful.

Everyone is always very personable and happy to answer questions. I have been seeing Dr. Elford for about 10 years and am happy to recommend to others.

Dr. Elford, you and all of your staff are exemplary in you dental service, as well as listening and responding so positively to your patiences! Thank you, John Spriggs 4/11/2019

He is a great dentist and would never go anywhere else.

Another nicely done, even elegant, filling. Dr E has a good touch and the team is great, too.

A okay

got me in right away when i needed it. thanks, mitch

I continue to be impressed with Dr. Elford's thoroughness and attention to detail. He is gentle, kind, and l appreciate his habit of explaining each thing he is going to do prior to actually doing it. I trust his recommendations and work completely.

thorough, informative, helpful

Superb front office folks. Their concise print out of treatment intervention options based on insurance reimbursement/out of pocket deductible and then breakdown of my cost was invaluable. Have never had any dental office do that. Sort of financial Novocain! Thank you.

Melissa is a gentle yet accomplished hygentist that always does a thorough job and the other staff members are very caring. Dr Elford is also very caring, thorough, gentle and provides excellent dentistry.

Professional and personable. This includes Dr. Elford, the hygienists, and office staff. They really care about me. 😁 I have been patient for six plus years. Other reasons to go there: Detail oriented, Fair pricing Hours

Over the years I’ve come to be more relaxed going to the dentist I have anxiety about dental work due to negative experiences as a child. I am very comfortable with Melissa cleaning my teeth. She listens to my concerns. Dr Elfird explains clearly what he sees after examining me. I have a positive view of my experiences there.

Love getting my teeth cleaned by Melissa. Dr. Elford is also very friendly and nice. He always tells you exactly what you are going to need if anything. When people ask about a dentist I always recommend Dr. Elford.

I am in good hands at Dr Elford's. Comfortable, pleasant and efficient.

The arrangements for cleaning and examination are very comfortable with attractive pictures sunglasses supportive chair Dentist and helpers are professional exact and friendly Quite spleasant experience Eleanor

I was treated courteously, and my concerns were heard and addressed to my satisfaction. I liked that the treatment provided, and the recommendations made, were thorough but conservative. Also, it is a very friendly environment. Thanks!

As always, Brittany, the dental hygienist was very careful and helpful and Dr Elford was very thorough and gave good advice concerning possible braces. I was very well pleased with my dental visit.

Brittney Muth was by far the best dental hygienist (?) I’ve ever had. She was super informative, gentle and personable. She was amazing and I highly recommend her to everyone. If she was my dentist Years ago, I probably wouldn’t have put off going back as long as I did

you and your staff were very welcoming and helpful and i hope to continue our relationship for all my teeth.

I appreciate the good care and kindness of your entire staff. Thank you!

Dr Elford and his staff always provide excellent care.

I really like Melissa my hygienist she does a thorough job cleaning my teeth and Dr Anthony is very careful not to do anything I don’t need to have done to my teeth

Everyone is caring, accommodating and highly professional. I trust Dr Elford‘s professional opinion totally.

Nice ; gentle and caring hands

Keep track of my cleaning preferences. Do not push for work on the watch list or cosmetic procedures.

Dr Elford and his staff are very welcoming. They know they’re dealing with people who are in pain and/or anxious and I feel very cared for and really well treated. They got me in immediately for an emergency and coordination of care with the endodontist was seamless.

Thoroughly explained the procedure. Painless during and after. Great work.

Great communication about procedure. Thoughtful and efficient.

Over the years ( 17 ) I have only praise for your excellent care and superb work

From the time I nervously walked into Dr. Elford’s office, until I left, I felt acknowledged, listened to and all of my dental needs were addressed very well. A wonderful experience. Thank you, John Spriggs

A very pleasant, low-key office. I liked the somewhat old-fashioned essence of that. Hygienist was gentle and got the job done quickly; doctor was pleasant and thorough. Sheila very cordial. I appreciate the discounts. I have already relayed this review to a friend who is looking for a new dentist.

Great staff, and super doctor. Thoughtful, considerate and helpful. Couldn’t ask for better—

Professional friendly reasonable

Great, as always.

Dr. Elford has been great for me and my teeth for years. He takes care. So does the staff out front and inside the treatment rooms. I reccomend the whole team and office.

The cleaning went well. They were quick and thorough. I had no problems

Everyone in the office has always been very friendly and kind. Dr. Eldord is very gentle and concerned. He doesn't tell you need something done unless you really need it. He is very kind.

I was very pleased with my experience. The staff was very kind and hopeful. I would gladly recommend this office

You provide a very personal service, from the front desk to the exam room. Sheila is always friendly and helpful, and Dr. Elford carefully reviews everything each time I see him. Highly recommended!

Brittany did a very thorough, careful, and pain-free cleaning. She and Dr Elford both communicated to me well, explaining what they were doing, what problems they saw, what they recommended, and what my options were. And both were personally very amiable and pleasant. I also appreciated the fact that my appointment started promptly. Sheila on the front desk was also, as always, very friendly and efficient.

D.r Elford is professional and I have no complaints regarding him or his office.. The office staff is friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend his office.

This was the best experience I have ever had. Thank you

I would not come to Dr. Elford if I did not trust him and know that he would take care of my dental needs

Very friendly staff!

I always feel taken care of and heard when I visit. The hygienist does a thorough job and always answers any questions I may have. When Dr. Elford checks in he is always very friendly and asks if I have any concerns. It is always as pleasant as a trip to the Dentist can be.

I love all of you. What a great dentist and staff.

Everyone in your office, from the receptionists through the dental technician to you, Dr. Elford, yourself, was friendly, yet efficient and knowledgeable.
