Default Dentist

My dentist, who was great, retired and sold his practice to a group. I'm not sure I like the dentist that has replaced him. Any recommendations on a dentist that has his own practice? I'd like to get a second opinion on something.

I did a lot of research before going to Marion Dental. They are all local (no big corporate practice) They are on 441 across from Lowes and next to Billy's cafe. They have 4 dentists in the office and a team of hygienists for cleaning. I went for dentures and could not be happier. Have had them for almost 3 years now and they fit so well I have never had to have them adjusted or relined. Dr Keith Wallace is my dentist.

We all three use Palm Ridge Dental and find them highly trained medical people. Kathleen Williams and Reem Jabar are both graduates of University of Florida at Gainesville and are smart, gentle, and try to teach you how to not need them.

Their office is in the strip mall next to Publix on 466, behind Lang Eye.

Tell them Grace Gantner sent you and they will cross their eyes.

Dr. Forrest Jerkins. 3360 Hwy. 27/441, Fruitland Park. 352.728.8881. Great dentist with a great staff; will not try to sell you services you don't need.

Also did extensive research and chose Marion Dental. I use Dr. Edwards who knows what he is doing and works with top notch Dr. Rosario if you need implants done correctly. Google him and check his credentials. He does not advertise like so many dentists do in Florida.
