There is a story behind each smile, and knowing what is important to my patients allows me to create their best smile. Each person has insights to share, and I have learned that by listening and understanding what is important to my patients, I can better tailor treatment to each individual. Whats important to my patients is important to me.

Whether I am providing general care, restoring oral health, or simply improving a smile, my attention is always on my patient. I consider the approach that will deliver the results my patients are looking for while improving their dental and overall wellness.Before starting any procedure, I thoroughly review the treatment options with my patients and together decide the best plan of action.

It is critical that people are able to make informed decisions about treatment and understand what to expect from the procedure, with complete, honest, and ethical recommendations. My commitment to effective communication is reinforced by my staff. Each team member strives to provide excellent care and maintain a warm and friendly environment. They are talented, experienced, and dedicated to exceptional customer service.

    I am new to Dr. Chavis and this was my first visit with him since my dentist retired earlier in 2022 and Dr. Chavis took over Dr. Vafised's clients. Dr. Chavis started my visit by going through my dental set with vigor and reciting a series of useless (dental mumbo jumbo to me) medical adverbs to describe what he was seeing - ok, but after this looky loo, no mention of why he did what he just did. Seemingly it was to prove he was more knowledgeable than I in modern dentisty. I was then informed that I grind my teeth and many of my filllings need to be replaced. Mind you, I see my dentist twice a year without fail, all of sudden, my other dentists withheld information from me. None of these issues seemed to be urgent, just things we need to address. Before I left and after my cleaning (the staff is terrific by the way) I was offered two possible procedures with an out of pocket cost of nearly $600. My experience simply was not a pleasant one. I would have rather enjoyed he take the time to visit with me and allow me to get to know him and have a lively and upbeat first visit since this was a routine cleaning and definitely not any kind of emergency, the next visit, perhaps, then we talk about any issues, triage them and deal with them logically instead of at that moment. I wish Dr. Chavis and his staff the best but I will be looking for other dental providers.

    Had a wisdom teeth extraction procedure done and it went really well. Dr. Chavis did a really great job at explaining everything he was going to do during the operation and he's definitely skilled as it didn't hurt too much. The team also did a superb job at going over the postoperative instructions and took the time to answer all of concerns and questions that I had. You (or your teeth) will be in great hands. Highly recommend!

You are at ease when you are in the hands of a highly skilled, experienced, and caring dentist. That's why I've taken my parents and family members to him.

    Been a loyal patient of Dr. Chavis for decades now. With all my other medical care, I've switched doctors several times over the years as life circumstances have changed -- but never dentists, even though it means a long drive for me now. He and his practice are simply the best. Everyone there is always professional, thorough and courteous, his judgment is always good, and his "chairside" manner is professional and inspires confidence. And in my case he even extracted a wisdom tooth without my needing so much as an aspirin the next day.

    Superb service. Dr. Chavis and his staff are highly skilled and friendly. The dental office use advanced dental technology which made having a full mouth x-rays taken, teeth cleaning, repair of chipped tooth, impression for tooth all in the same visit painless. Dr. Chavis explained the health of my mouth and showed me using a camera. The office is very clean and decorated well. Chavis Dental care about keeping and making smiles beautiful. Thank you.

    I am so dentist-phobic that I used to go for years on end avoiding dentists. Dr. Chavis and his delightful staff have not only successfully fixed my numerous dental issues but they always make my visits pleasant and relatively stress-free, and since I started using this practice I have not felt like postponing a single appointment. Dr. Chavis is a wizard. His practice also has made heroic efforts to handle my reticent insurer on my behalf. As long as I have teeth I will forbid Dr. Chavis from retiring.

    Dr. Chavis is a perfectionist, and who better to care for your teeth than someone who doesn't accept "okay" as good enough, but insists on reaching the "wow"! Dr. Chavis and his team have been caring for my teeth for years, and they have earned my trust and respect. They can do the same for you.
