Review # 1: The staff is what makes Pappas and Tapley stand out. They were consistently very patient with us, and went the extra mile for us every time. Especially Kate, the lady at the front desk. She is the friendliest and prettiest appointment scheduling person that I’ve ever met. Also, I got replacement retainers here, after two weeks of not having them in, and they look like I just got my braces off. They couldn’t look better! All around great experience. (reviewed by: Joshua Arola rating: 5 date published: April 3, 2018)
Review # 2: Dr. Pappas and Dr. Tapley are very friendly and professional. The staff here at Pappas & Tapley Orthodontics are sweet and work with you from the front office staff and making appointments to the technicians that make you feel as comfortable and safe as possible. I could not imagine taking my daughter to any other orthodontist . We have had braces for our children as well as ourselves and the experience has been beyond positive. (reviewed by: Chris Leeds rating: 5 date published: March 19, 2018)
Review # 3: Pappas and Tapley provided me with quick and friendly service. The staff was extremely attentive and had me in and out with a new retainer in less than 45 minutes. I would highly recommend this to any college student in need of orthodontic care. (reviewed by: Graham Boone rating: 5 date published: March 12, 2018)
Review # 4: As a full-time college student working part-time, affordability was my main concern when choosing a practice for my orthodontic needs. From reasonable price options and financing to friendly and courteous staff, comfortable office space, low wait time, and amazing smile results, Pappas & Tapley Orthodontics exceeded my expectations across the spectrum. I always look forward to my next appointment! (reviewed by: Modeline Celestin rating: 5 date published: March 6, 2018)
Review # 5: I got my braces here in 3rd grade and had to have them on for 2 years but this place was amazing! Very friendly staff and Pappas&Tapley was the first place I called when I slacked off wearing my retainers and needed some new ones to fit my slightly shifted teeth! It’s so cute as well the little tv room and the sinks to brush your teeth before the appointment! I highly recommend! #supportlocal (reviewed by: Jewel Frost rating: 5 date published: February 8, 2018)

Review # 1: The 5 stars are almost purely on the atmosphere of the office. I walked in at 8am and all of the people working inside were happy and ready to help. They are fantastic with children and managed to keep the mood of the office light despite the often dull environment most offices have. The office is incredibly welcoming and they managed to get me in quickly for a repair even though I wasn’t a previous patient. The price was right and they didn’t try to over-charge like some of the others in the area. I highly recommend this office for parents with children or even anyone who needs a mood-booster and quality service! (reviewed by: Bailey Pittman rating: 5 date published: March 20, 2018)
Review # 2: Studio32 is the absolute BEST!! From the staff to the Doctor to the fun decor in the office, everything is centered on your comfort and satisfaction as a patient. Dr. Mullally never minds taking time to answer questions, and each staff member is very knowledgeable and supportive as well. The atmosphere in the office is calm and peaceful. We have never had any issues with scheduling appointments, making payment arrangements, or anything else that has been necessary for my daughter’s treatment. I can’t recommend Studio32 enough! (reviewed by: RaeAnne Nettles rating: 5 date published: March 21, 2018)
Review # 3: We spent a lot of time Orthodontist shopping. We just love Studio 32! The staff is always friendly and there to help.

Review # 5: Good location, clean office, fast and friendly service, They take the time to explain everything. My only drawback- and this is just me- the music was too loud and annoying station. Almost reggae rap music. The older client sitting next to me did not care for it either. (reviewed by: Jules Gollner rating: 4 date published: November 8, 2017)

Review # 1: We have appreciated the professional, courteous and personal service my son and I have received from Dr. Pavlik and his team. Before my son goes for cleanings with his dentist, they remove his wires then replace them the next morning. After only 6 months, we saw an amazing change in the alignment of his teeth. My son actually enjoys going. Highly recommended!! (reviewed by: Tamara D. Warner rating: 5 date published: October 9, 2017)
Review # 2: We started our daughters treatment plan at Pavlik Orthodontics this year and have been very happy with the experience so far!

Review # 2: Our daughter Maddy has braces and our experience with Progressive Ortho has been amazing! Their team are all so nice and caring every time we are there. They know us all by name and treat us like family. The office is fun and parents can come back and sit and watch the appointment. We even had a braces emergency one night, late where wire was poking out and hurting her cheek on the inside, we called the office number and it routed to Dr. Martin who called us back and meet us at the office to fix it! At 10pm at night! I was so impressed! They also offer Invisalign and I am considering it now! (reviewed by: April Schroeder rating: 5 date published: August 21, 2013)

Review # 1: It has been our blessing to have Dr. Sappington as orthodontics. My kid does not like people tell him what to do, and I had some frustrations during the period when he had braces. Dr. Sappington has been so patient and kind to educate him what she is trying to do during each visit, what she needs from him and why she needs him to cooperate after the visit. Last month, we finally got his braces off. He was happy it was finally over. But more importantly, he had BIG smiles on his face after he saw his beautiful teeth. I am sure he was surprised how beautiful they came out. This month, he has been brushing, flossing and wearing the retainers every night. I know he really likes his teeth, otherwise he won’t do that much for his teeth. (reviewed by: Qihong Li rating: 5 date published: January 18, 2018)
Review # 2: All I can say is WOW. Dr. Sappington and her staff is amazing . In my first visit Dr.Sappington set down with me and ask me about myself , after she went right into the perfect treatment she thought was best for me. She answer every question I had with no hesitation , she even taught me somethings I didn’t know! She was so nice beautiful on the inside and out 🙂 So excited to start my treatment plan this upcoming week !! I highly recommend this office !!! (reviewed by: Brittany Stuberfield rating: 5 date published: January 26, 2018)
Review # 3: I had my braces twice in my life. Both times here. I chose not to wear my retainer first time. She gave me my second braces for over 50% off! I was thrilled. All appointments are pleasant (reviewed by: Thomas Bradley rating: 5 date published: March 8, 2018)
Review # 4: This place is absolutely wonderful! Dr. Sappington and the staff are so kind, sweet, and great at what they do. Dr. Sappington is a perfectionist and can fix issues that other orthodontists say they can’t. I highly recommend this office! 🙂 (reviewed by: Diane Hu rating: 5 date published: March 16, 2018)
Review # 5: Awesome orthodontist! Dr. Sappington is far and away the best in town, and her team is kind and professional. Thank you for all the support! (reviewed by: Jack Liu rating: 5 date published: March 16, 2018)

Review # 1: The 1st office visit to get my daughters braces put on was great and we got told that if there was any problems to call ASAP and they would be addressed. About 2 weeks later her wires popped out. Call and left a message but after no response for a day we popped them back in ourselves with a pliers… a week later… popped out again… So after this process we have popped the wires back in about 5 times, my daughter has a canker sore from loose wires and we have placed 4 voicemails to the office with no return calls at all. I even took her to the office after school on a Monday and it was closed and the one person that was working said “we are in Ocala till Friday, sorry!” So in person is great… but if you want a callback within 30days… good luck! (reviewed by: N C rating: 1 date published: February 10, 2018)
Review # 2: Montini Orthodontics provides top notch service and I would highly recommend this practice!!! (reviewed by: Brian Livingston rating: 5 date published: January 3, 2018)
Review # 3: I went to several orthodontists before finally choosing Dr. Montini. He’s funny, nice, and very knowledgeable. And his staff is also great, they’re nice and super accommodating. I am so grateful I came here for my braces. I have already referred a few friends here. (reviewed by: Jessica Zarate rating: 5 date published: October 14, 2016)

Review # 5: Dr Montini is a warm, personable, highly trained and skilled orthodontist. I have seen truly phenomenal changes he has made in restoring proper bite in even the most difficult of cases. He not only restores the smile nature intended, but improves eating (chewing) and thus digestion, nutritional uptake, and overall health. Dr Montini is great with kids, too! (reviewed by: Amy G rating: 5 date published: November 8, 2011)

Review # 1: I always feel I am well cared for at Tioga Dental. I never feel rushed. Appointments are on time. Everyone seems happy. During my last visit I finished the process of getting an implant. Everything went smoothly and all questions were answered. I also had a cleaning that was done so professionally and with care. I have full confidence in Tioga Dental and I am a former dental hygienist. (reviewed by: Jan Tucci rating: 5 date published: January 13, 2018)
Review # 2: I’ll never go to another dentist ever. These people are amazing! I love Tioga and would never go anyplace else. I have anxiety and they help me in every way they can. They are clean, organized and thorough. It’s a good experience from the time you walk in to the time you walk out. Lee Anne Cash. (reviewed by: Craig rating: 5 date published: January 16, 2018)
Review # 3: Liked the treatment I received! I recently had a crown done, it’s beautiful. The moment when put on, my tooth was very sensitive for a minute, but after that everything is normal, the crown fits nicely. Dr. Potter and the staff have been friendly. The office is very neat and beautiful. It’s a pleasant dental office to go. (reviewed by: Anna H rating: 5 date published: January 13, 2018)
Review # 4: Office is beyond professional. The staff made my trips to the dentist far superior than any I have ever been to. My brother in law is a dentist. I prefer Tioga. (reviewed by: Kristine DeFilippis rating: 5 date published: March 26, 2018)
Review # 5: I just had my first visit at Tioga Dental and the folks there were great and so friendly. They explained everything that was wrong and right with my teeth to my satisfaction. I wanted a cleaning and 2 implants. They walked me through their recommended process, answered all my questions and coordinated with my Dental insurance company on costs. I’m returning to Tioga Dental for the follow on treatments and would recommend them for your dental needs. (reviewed by: Steven Winingham rating: 5 date published: January 5, 2018)

Review # 1: My experience at coast dental was really a wonderful experience. Two staff members in particular made me feel very welcoming. Toccara was the first face I seen when I walked in and she greeted me with the most welcoming smile and attitude. She answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. The second staff member Louis which was the very nice gentleman who cleaned my teeth was very gentle, and my experience with him was very educational in reference to my dental hygiene. He motivated me to do better with my oral care and thanks to him I have. Thank you Toccara and Louis for making this a wonderful experience. (reviewed by: Malayshia Kingrating: 5 date published: March 28, 2018)

If 10 stars were possible they would get it. (reviewed by: Johnny Hernandez rating: 5 date published: March 13, 2018)
Review # 3: Front office staff are all great. Recently had an insurance change. Very smooth transition. My daughter is getting braces and everyone is working hard to assure her she will do great because she is so nervous. Ashley is the bomb when it comes to the not fun part of dealing with insurance and payments. Always pleased when we leave 🙂 Thanks, CD! (reviewed by: Mindy Goodwin rating: 5 date published: January 16, 2018)
Review # 4: We are switching Dentists for many reasons . It because even clearer when I came in to pick up records that should have been ready 3 days ago. Waiting over 30 mi ! Phone ringing off the hook as I waited which happened to us all the time too! Appointments cancelled on us regularly also. Everyone is very nice but efficient service is not always there! (reviewed by: Connie Steger rating: 1 date published: February 19, 2018)
Review # 5: Very friendly and professional staff. I am a new patient and look forward to the care I will receive from Coast Dental. During my initial appointment the dental team took their time to explain the treatment plan and associated costs. I feel piece of mind after being screened for oral cancer. Overall, it is evident that this establishment is committed to the oral health of their patients. (reviewed by: Gerry Altamirano rating: 5 date published: January 9, 2018)

Review # 1: I was referred to this office today and have been trying all day to get a hold of someone! I get ONE returned call only to be disconnected and somehow got switched into another customer that also was trying to call in. They don’t answer their phones, the only answers you get is from the answering service to take a message that doesn’t get returned! Good thing I was only asking for new patient information but with all of today’s headache THEY WONT HAVE MY BUSINESS…… (reviewed by: Christina James rating: 1 date published: March 22, 2017)

Review # 1: I’d been putting off a dental visit for quite some time, and decided to get back on track. The office staff was extremely helpful in getting me set up for my first appointment and cleaning, and the reminders were much appreciated! Everyone was extremely nice and very professional when I came in – from the front desk, to the assistants, to the hygienist! No one ever made me feel bad in any way about waiting so long. I ended up needing a crown, which I was extremely reluctant to get. Dr. Busch took a very long time explaining why she chose that treatment for me and what would happen if I didn’t get it. I was so impressed that she did that instead of saying that she’s the dentist, that’s why. She even sent her assistant back in with a model and more info. My only complaint would be that Dr. Busch only does dental procedures one day a week and it isn’t a day that I can work around with my job right now. If things ever change with my work schedule, I’d be back in a heartbeat! (reviewed by: Diane A rating: 5 date published: April 25, 2017)
Review # 2: My first visit to this office was very pleasant. All the staff was very courteous and friendly. My visit took a bit longer than I expected, but an emergency patient came in while I was there and caused the delay. But, the office staff checked on me every 15 minutes or so to see if I needed anything and to give me an update on timing. I have another appointment coming up and am looking forward to getting my dental health back on track. (reviewed by: Brenda Luckey rating: 5 date published: May 21, 2017)
Review # 3: I’ve had two appointments at this office, and both have been great. The staff is very patient and helpful, they’re good communicators, and they perform their jobs at a high level. They’re professionals, but they don’t take themselves so seriously that you feel judged, scrutinized, like a set of teeth, etc. Many people have issues getting comfortable in a doctor’s or dentist’s office – if you are one of those people, I would suggest visiting Dr Busch (and if you are not one of those people, my suggestion remains the same). Their pricing is pretty decent as well, and they took my dental discount plan (highly recommended if you don’t have insurance). (reviewed by: Thomas O’Connellrating: 5 date published: April 7, 2016)
Review # 4: Terrible bedside manner. Overcharged then does not file claims with insurance and tries to make patients pay. Or does file and tries to make patients pay for the same thing. Also, the crown she put on my husband’s tooth, well, it’s either going to have to be redone or pulled for not being done properly! And she “won’t talk to patients” per one of the many secretaries she has had.would give less stars if I could.. EDIT REPONDING to owner’s response: we did try to get in touch to settle bill, starting with Leslie, who stated “don’t worry, it will work out when ins pays. You paid your co-pay.” At one point, I HAD TO FAX IN MY OWN CLAIMS TO MY INS COMPANY because Leslie said that’s the only way to get them to pay! I have 2 ledgers from this office that don’t match up. I also have proof of what was paid by me & by ins company. If I go by just what I paid, minus ins discounts, then this office owes me. I Have been TOLD TO LEAVE THIS OFFICE while trying to discuss this account with Rachael, the current Secretary. Linda, a previous Secretary tried to help me, but left before anything happened. MARIA was able to have at least 3 or 4 claims filed that had not been previously filed! I have no problem paying what I owe, but when I add up the numbers and I have already OVERPAID, that is a problem. And I have the ledger where your office charged us and insurance for a root canal and crown, and a letter from an oral surgeon stating that it was not properly done and could possibly have to extract the tooth. So…if it wasn’t done, then somebody filed a claim and charged us…that I believe would be fraud. As stated, this office tries to look good. I have all of my papers. And yes I QUIT going there 3 years ago due to improper billing and bad dental work/”bedside” manner. (reviewed by: Monica Newlon rating: 1 date published: August 21, 2015)
Review # 5: Dr. Busch is a great dentist and her revamped staff is awesome. I had the best dental cleaning I have ever had today by Ann. She had so much attention to detail, most of the time you are just something to be cleaned but she really spent the time to make sure you were truly cleaned. It sounds silly but she is truly a master at her craft. I’ve lived in gainesville all my life and I swear this is the best dental experiences I have ever had (reviewed by: Timmy Farina rating: 5 date published: March 10, 2016)
