One of the best dental experiences I've had in my life, and this was my first visit. From the over the phone experience to the in-person appointment, everyone was so kind and informative. Everything was clean and the decor was just so polished and precise. I would recommend everyone to Southern Family Dental Group!

My Dental Hygienist Miss Jen, was fabulous, also truly empathetic regarding my present stress level due to health related concerns. I always feel at ease during my appointments for routine dental cleanings or any other dental procedure. Southern Family Dental Group is a 10 plus in my book, when it comes to building a rapport and demonstrating true care while establishing trust and faith in one's dental practice. Dr. C. Strub is always magnificent and genuine with his conservative approach towards any dental concerns especially during this stage in my life. Thank you so very much, Southern Family Dental Group, for caring and bridging all of my family's dental concerns at hand !!

Nice place. Friendly staff. However, I did not get to see the Dr. that I made the appointment with. I was not advised of this ahead of time. Only knew it when the Dr came in. The X rays and consultation last much longer than usual with me just sitting there waiting. This is not a good business practice in my opinion.
