I cannot say enough to express just how much I appreciate Osprey Dental. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by such a positive, caring front office team. My first visit was for an emergency root canal. They not only got me in quickly but within the first 10 minutes Dr. Cotera diagnosised that the probable reason for it was my bite was misaligned. Something my previous dentist never mentioned and I had just grown to accept. After an incredible deep cleaning, some additional dental work I not only have a much healthier mouth but a beautiful new smile! Their prices are fair. It is a husband and wife practice and Dr. Cotera's husband, Dr. Kesling treats my spouse who is just as happy as I am. This makes it very convenient as we drive down from St. Petersburg. It's well worth the drive!

Osprey dental is the best overall dental experience I've ever had. Dr. Kesling made a minor adjustment with my bite and solved my painful jaw issue where my prior dentist said I needed a tooth implant. All of the staff including Bree, Fanny, Marcella, Melissa and the others whose names I don't know yet, smile when they meet you and are professional, courteous and friendly. Today's visit, I had a filling, crown and thorough cleaning. Walked out saying "ahhhhhh". Can't say I've ever walked out of a dentist office feeling like that. Overall perfect experience. Thanks Osprey Dental!

Although I have a real fear of dental procedures, I have found my hygienist, Mel, to always be efficient and patient. She explains what she is about to do and then does so with competence. Thanks, Mel, for alleviating my anxiety!

I had a terrible experience with this dentist. Beware that they will make you do work you don't need! I was told I needed 6 crowns and multiple fillings. This didn't seem right to me since I have never needed a crown in my life. I went to get a second opinion and was told I only needed 1 crown! I think it's extremely unethical to do dental work on teeth that don't need it. Not only are you ripping people off, it can lead to more dental problems down the road. Don't use this dentist. And if you are told you need work make sure you get a second and maybe third opinion.

Get a second opinion before agreeing to a suggested procedure. At a recent regular check-up/cleaning I was surprised to hear that I had developed serious gum disease and was presented with a treatment program to sign for over $900 of deep scaling treatment. Since my teeth or gums weren't bothering me and I practice good dental care I was a bit suspicious. Went to a periodontist who did not see any gum disease and sent me home with a rubber tipped gum tool and a small brush for cleaning the back of my teeth and an appointment for six months hence.

I am a new patient to Osprey Dental, and couldn't be more happy I found a dental office that is so professional and thorough. When I walked in I was welcomed by smiling faces at the front office. Made my white coat syndrome calm down. They explained what my visit consisted of for the appointment. They are very thorough and explained everything to me so I could understand. They also offer financing options, as well as an in office plan that helps with services. I highly recommend this office and will share this with all of my friends and colleagues.

If you want the best dental care you should visit Dr Kesling at Osprey Dental. I'm in my 70s and have seen many dentist. When I moved to the area I looked for a good dental practice. Osprey Dental was the top rated. I have only had great experiences during treatment and the final results. Dr. Kesling and his staff are all very professional and courteous, taking the time to fully explain what Is needed. He is the best!!
