What patients are saying.

To all the staff at South Sound Family Dental and Dentures: I want to wish you my heartfelt thanks to all from the receptionist on up. You made me feel comfortable and like I was one of your own family. You people did about three weeks worth of work on me, in a week; you people are the type of caring people you just read about in history books or see on movies. The level of care and PROFESSIONALISM in your office is unmatched in all my life of going to doctors and dentists. I never felt so welcomed and cared for.

I just wanted to say THANKS for the great service you provided for me as a new patient. As a military Spouse I have been to a lot of dentist’s, and it’s not everyday that you find a great dentist, so no more scary dental visits for me! The Dr. & your staff made me feel welcomed & relaxed, like part of your family. Your all great to talk too and very helpful.

I have nothing but praise for Fred and his staff at South Sound Family Dental and Dentures. I walked in off the street, more or less, and I was treated with care and respect. Not once was I pressured into making any decisions that I did not want to make. The care taken by Fred was superior. He made me a new set of dentures that from the first day fit perfect. Even when I went back for adjustments I was treated like a friend and not just another patient. And the best part is Fred has a wonderful sense of humor. Fred’s receptionist made us feel welcome for the time we walked in until we left. She even made copies of recipes for my husband as he sat waiting for me. They are on the top of my list for references for dental work of any kind.

I would rather chew off my right arm than go to the dentist let alone have impressions taken. Having said that, I so wish I had found this place long ago. Heidi is wonderful, Dr. John makes going to the dentist almost pleasant, and although still not fun Fred and his compassion made having impressions the most bearable I’ve ever had. Although I feel like a big baby, I can’t help my fear due to past experiences but they help make me feel as comfortable as possible without judgment. Dr. John made sure I was totally and truly numb before starting a procedure, which I have never had a dentist do. Fred and Heidi and Lindy have been very patient and understanding and caring. I cannot say enough good things about these people.

I love how my new Dental Office made me feel so comfortable, even though I have not seen a Dentist in years. I got to see the Denturist Fred, Dr. John Hodges, and Heidi the Hygienist the same day and everyone is in the same office. They are the best they care about their patients. I HIGHLY recommend their Dental office to everyone; you won’t have to look any further once you go there.

I went here for the first time last week. All of the staff were extremely friendly and they didn’t seem to be rushed. The dentist had great bedside manner. This will be my new permanent dentist.

I had the most enjoyable Dentist appointment I have ever had. I felt right at home from the minute I called on the phone to walking through the door. The team here at SSFDD is awesome! Everyone is so helpful and kind really making me feel special, going above and beyond catering to my needs. Dr. Hodges was gentle and I love the way him and his assistant worked together. I just love the way everyone worked so well together, thank you Fred, Heidi, Dr. Hodges and the team you all are GREAT!! I honestly can’t wait to come back and see you all again.

This office and staff are wonderful! I can not say how relieved I am to find this office. The staff is very knowledgeable, Lindee at the front desk took care of all my insurance needs, Dr. Hodges addressed my dental implant concerns, and everyone was very friendly. My implant was placed and I look forward to completing treatment. I highly recommend this office, they are great.
