Just had my first visit at Uptown Dental and I was extremely impressed! The building is beautiful and the front desk staff is friendly and helpful! My teeth feel great and I was given some great tops to improve my oral hygiene. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable! Already scheduled my follow-up visit because I knew I wanted to come back here!

Jamie is absolutely wonderful! She is the reason I go to Uptown Dental! She is hands-down the best dental hygienist I ever had. She is professional, thorough and gentle! I walk away thinking my teeth are clean and this has been a great experience! That does not happen with all hygienist! Jamie is exceptional!

Warm, comfortable environment. I have had a rather severe resistance to dentistry and my teeth showed it. Fact is, I was terrified to go, to the extent that I could not sleep if there was an appointment on my calendar and would get physically ill the day of the appointment. Uptown Dental Associates changed that. After just two visits, I am able to walk in there fearlessly. Dr. Shepherd seemed to understand the fear and, with a combination of humor and patience, made it possible for me to get some extensive dental work done while easing me out of the fear I had. Truly amazing. The entire group in the office are supportive, professional and understanding. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs.
