I couldn't be happier with the care and treatment I get from the team at Hawthorn Woods Family Dental Care, specifically Dr. Goldberg and Leeanne! Here, you're not just another patient, you're family. Their care, compassion, professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. They are my dentists for life and should be yours too! Thank you Hawthorn Woods Family Dental Care for all you do! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!
This dentistry is wonderful. Not only do they offer the fastest and easiest experience for dentist examinations with two children at the same time with separate technicians. They offer very friendly service. My wife and I cannot recommend them enough.
This is by far the best dentist I have ever gone to in my life. I have had a few over the years with moves and insurance changes. He is great and the staff is just as wonderful to interact with. Each of my visits, for the first time in my life, I actually look forward to going to the dentist. Thank you for your excellent customer service. Truly, recommending you to all of my family and friends.
I had a great experience at Hawthorn Woods Family Dental Care. All the staff and Dr. Copeland were all great. They were able to get me in quickly as well. The office is very clean and nice. I would highly recommend the dental practice.
I had a cavity filled. The staff was friendly, efficient and professional, and the procedure was quick and painless. The was my first visit to the practice after over 15 years with another dentist and I am glad that I made the change.
Best dental experience I've ever had. Dr. Copeland does great work and is honest. I cannot stress enough how much that meant to me after the string of poor experiences I've had at other offices. And the hygienist Cindy provided the most thorough cleaning I've ever had. They aren't even in my dental network but well worth the out-of-pocket expense. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
As a long time patient of Dr. Grise' she has always provided excellent care. Not only is she outstanding at what she does she also manages to treat her patients with respect and a personal touch that makes you feel like family. While the support staff and her assistant are new to me I was impressed with their professionalism as well as efficiency. Great job and team work from all. Thank you!
I would give Dr. Copeland, Mickey, and Marisela (and the rest of the staff) 10 stars if I could. Im extremely scared of the dentist because of a past experience and they made everything so easy and extremely comfortable. They couldn’t have been nicer and more gentle and it was the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist before.
I could not be more happy with this office. It is like family, they are always so good to us. They remind us of future appointments and they are always so nice. Both of my children go here too and have great teeth! You will love them too!
