What our patients say about us

I have been going to South Side Dental Center for about 15 years now ever since I was a little girl. South Side Dental Center has adjusted well to COVID-19 and making sure that their employees and patients are safe and protected. Everyone at the office is caring and sweet and makes you feel comfortable.Andriana Goodhall
Very professional, cares about patients, and works with you on your needs. Not the cheapest place to go but you get what you pay for. Never had any problems with their work but I know they stand behind their work. That's why I go back and have for years.Nathaniel Johnson

I’m usually a bit nervous going to the dentist but at South Side Dental they really made me feel at home. Their entire staff was extremely nice and professional. Rachel did a fantastic job cleaning my teeth! She was also very funny which really helped with my anxiety about the dentist. I will definitely be coming back for my next cleaning!Jake Pudik

Like most people I dislike going to the dentist, even for cleanings. I moved here a few years ago and had to find a dentist and Dr Spano was recommended to me. I have had a lot of work done in the last 4 to 5 years and Dr Spano & his staff have been great. They are very supportive, explain my options and listen to my concerns. I have been very happy here and would recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a dentist or needs a new one who listens and cares and does great work.Barb ...

I appreciate that Dr. Spano does not try to sell services like a used- car salesman. He seems very honest, allowing delays of x-rays when deemed appropriate and not presenting a financial burden on the patient. And, even when missing a tooth, he doesn't keep giving me estimates on replacements, like a former dentist. Instead, he has given options, opinions, and assured me that it is not causing a problem at this time, rather than trying to coerce me into having an expensive replacement. As a retired senior, I especially appreciate this. I also like that Dr. Spano never seems ...

I spoke to Melissa who was helpful as always. Amy did my cleaning & was gentle and understanding of my sensitive teeth. I had new x-rays done on a moments notice & was accommodated immediately. Massage chairs are great. I get a ton of positive comments on the work you have done to my teeth and I now eat and drink without pain with great fitting appliances. You have a great practice. I would not think of going elsewhere and have referred anyone and everyone I know that mentions dental work. Thanks!!Charles Edwards
