Reviews

It’s such a pleasure going to the dentist. My kids and I feel so welcomed by the hygienists; we can pick up conversations that we left off on six months ago! It's amazing and they make you feel so comfortable and special. We will never change dentists. Excellent visit! Took great care of my daughter! Been coming here for years and I drive an hour to get here because I love the staff!! I always leave with happy teeth and most importantly never any pain!! My daughters like coming here as well, everyone has always been so kind and patient with them! They make you feel like family, I hate going to the dentist but they make it as painless as possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone. The entire staff was very friendly. I had to bring my toddler with me and everyone was very sweet and accommodating. I thoroughly enjoy my visits to the dentist at Plymouth Family Dentistry! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They truly care about their patients and have the latest in dental care technology! The people that work their treat you like family. Always feel like I’m well-cared for, all my questions are answered, the staff is friendly, and my appointment is on time. I have had the same dentist for over 10 years. I will not go anywhere else Plymouth Family Dentistry is wonderful. All the employees are friendly and helpful. D. Fisher is an excellent, caring dentist. This is a very friendly Office. Totally trustworthy! I drive 35 minutes and pass a lot of dental offices to get here. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Kelly is a great hygienist.
