I've always had a deep fear of the dentist but Dr. Dodson did an amazing job! She was so kind and calm and talked me through the process which made me feel very relaxed! my teeth feel amazing!

Had a tooth in the back of my mouth chipped and hadn't seen a dentist in years, if I had to guess maybe 10+ years. After an examination, I had two cavities that I didn't know about in one of my teeth. She took an xray before she did her work and after. Got a temporary crown on the chipped tooth and the cavities filled. I choose the white filling material. I had my teen son with me on my 3 appointments and she was very nice and patient with us. Constantly checked to see if she was hurting me and she wasn't after she administered an injection to numb the side she did the work on. Got my permanent gold crown today and feel amazing about my dental health with Dr. Dodson.

Came here for an emergency appointment when my crown fell off. She said she'd be able to put it back quickly but looked at me for 30 secs and said I needed expensive, painful (and unnecessary) gum *surgery* in order to get it replaced. She didn't even have a dental assistant there to assist and I realized she never intended to replace it. Only wanted to charge my insurance for a useless appt. I found another dentist who fixed it in under 20 minutes - no problem since.

I had such a wonderful experience yesterday being treated by Elizabeth. They are normally closed on Tuesdays, but do to my being scheduled off on only Tuesdays for the foreseeable future, Elizabeth made a last minute exception for me, allowing me to come into the office for a dental appointment. She was very gentle and thorough while treating me too! Over all, she was very nice, personable, accommodating, and professional! Thank you so much, Elizabeth

I found Dr. Dodson and her assistant to be very kind and patient women. I had several issues that needed attention and before performing any procedures Dr. Dodson took time to explain what she thought would be the best course of action. As a matter of fact, after my consultation, she told me to go home and research a few things and when I come back we would discuss any further questions I have. She answered all of my questions and explained in detail. I'm very happy to have found Dr. Dodson and to be her patient.

Disappointed So I went to Dr. Dodson whom I have gone to over 20 years when I needed to. I wanted to talk to her about a scaling and she was supposed to do a cleaning. She wanted to tell me all of my fillings needed to be replaced and some were already loose. (I have felt no discomfort or sensitivity.) One of the reasons I would come to her is because I have dental anxiety. Not a little, but I have had to take valium before for a filling from other dentists. Well I went to this appointment and she started to yank hard in between my teeth which she had never done before and when I made a noise to show my discomfort she lightly put the pick across my teeth and then said I needed to make an appointment...and then proceeded to charge me $110 without xrays and then her assistant had a nerve to ask me if I wanted to book my scaling appointment. I just seated in the office for 45 minutes, saw her for 5 and then she charges me that. I am totally disappointed and I know she doesn't care. She changed so much and so have I. I don't need to tolerate that treatment and will take my money elsewhere. I hope she enjoyed all that $110 because that is the last dollar she will get from me.

I'm a new patient of Dr. Dodson, she was great, was able to see me right away, was very understanding and explained everything to me, overall visit went very well. I've never been a fan of dentists but Dr. Dodson was fantastic.

What the hell, I called, was hung up on and immediately sent a text from a different number with the message "who is this?" I asked if this was Dr. Perry-Dodson and I get the response: "Please ID yourself. Who are u. And what do u want?" Are you serious? I have no clue how this place is still in business.

Last week, I called Dr. Dodson's office to see if I needed to come in to her office to get a referral for a pediatric dentist, because my 7 yr old was complaining of a tooth ache for a few days. I didn't want to waste time, and had been dealing with dental insurance for several days prior to calling Dr. Dodson while my child was in pain. After speaking to Dr. Dodson, the receptionist told me to come in to the office, a few weeks ago we helped a 5 year old with an issue. I booked an appointment thinking, finally my son will get the help he needs. So we go to Dr. Dodson's office, she call us back, and before even looking in my son's mouth she starts explaining to me the different specialties of dentistry. She goes through the list: periodontal, oral surgery, orthodontics, general, and of course the last one she mentions is pediatrics After looking in my sounds mouth for a few minutes, she says looks like he will need to see a pediatric dentist. She didn't even take an x-ray or anything to look at the root of the tooth causing my son's pain. Because of this, I feel like Dr. Dodson had no intention on trying to help my son, and only wanted me to come into her office so that she could collect a co-pay from me. A few days later I got an appointment with a pediatric dentist without a referral from Dr. Dodson, that saw my son and fixed his problem on the same day.

Dr. Dodson sat down and explained a treatment plan suitable to my wants and need. She does not sugar-code when it comes down to doing what she loves, and I appreciate that.

I am a new patient of Doctor Elizabeth Dodson. I am usually nervous when I go to the dentist. I quickly became calm by her kindness, understanding and professionalism. I am very pleased with the treatment that I received from Doctor Dodson. She is affordable and I am happy with my dental work that was done.
