When I first came to Lake Lanier Smiles in May of 2014, I had a few loose teeth, some pain, & bleeding gums. Dr. Washington Immediately diagnosed me with periodontal disease & told me that I would definitely lose 1 tooth & possibly more if I didn’t follow a treatment plan. He then advised me to see a periodontal specialist & instructed me on what I needed to do in order to save as many of my teeth as possible. Eight months later, after seeing a periodontal specialist for a deep cleaning & then rotating between Dr. Washington & my Periodontist for maintenance treatment, along with using Super Soft Interdental Picks, daily flossing, & using Listerine mouth wash as instructed, I am happy to say that today my teeth are in great shape! Dr. Washington said that many of my deep pockets have miraculously improved. My gums haven’t bled since my treatment. And I only ended up losing 1 tooth. I still have the disease, but with periodic maintenance, it’s very manageable with no side effects. To think, I only chose Lake Lanier Smiles due to their extremely low prices compared to other dentists on the internet. Who would have thought I would be getting a nice, friendly, professional staff & quality dental care simultaneously? Some warned me to watch out.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! When I called to get information concerning cost prior to my first appointment, I was given the information without hesitation and they honored the discounts even though they would expire prior to my procedures. At my first appointment I was given an itemized estimate as to the total cost of the treatment and it had absolutely no hidden surprises that were not revealed in my initial inquiry! Dr. Washington explained all procedures and has no hesitation in answering any questions. I am extremely happy that I chose this dental practice and would highly recommend it to anyone.

I am extremely pleased with the attitude and care shown by all members of Lanier Smiles. Mercedes and Dr. Washington run a first rate very clean clinic. Upon entrance to the office you are welcomed by a friendly staff and it’s very comfortable in the waiting room while you wait. Waiting time is always brief and the receptionist immediately communicates to the staff in the back of your arrival. I must say they really are more interested in establishing a relationship, getting to know their patients and serving their needs, than in selling as many products and procedures as possible. Mercedes the office manager understand that not everyone can afford more than what is absolutely necessary. I made the decision to have four crowns put on my upper front teeth. Dr. Washington explained the procedure (which involves several hours in the chair. He assured me that he would make it as "painless" as possible - and he did! He is very considerate of your needs, allowing me to change channels, water break and providing adequate local anesthetics. The results were amazing and I could not be more pleased! Dr. Washington is kind, doesn’t rush and most of all - highly skilled! I am glad that I found Lake Lanier Smiles and plan to continue using them for my dental needs Overall, I would definitely recommend Lake Lanier Smiles

Prior to going to Lake Lanier Smiles, I have been going to another dentist group that charges an arm and a leg for every service. They have a big network and I guess I was paying for that. I still paid a lot even after having a decent insurance. It was night and day when I switched to Lake Lanier Smiles. They treated me like family and all their services were affordable. I was happy that I made the switch. The only thing I regret was that I should have done it sooner.

They were so kind and helpful trying to find us discounts and seeing us right away. Thank you!

I do not have insurance right now. I had a tooth that was aching so bad. I googled dentists in the area for affordability and they came up. They saw me right away and offered me coupons and discounts. They were very kind and took great care of me, very professional too. Very impressed and now my family is switching over to their office.

This place is great! Even from the first time I called to set up an appointment, everyone (especially Mercedes) was thorough and listened to everything I had to say. They caught something three previous places missed along with treating me for what I was originally coming in there for. The office staff and Dr. Washington listened to me, my concerns, all while keeping it within my budget. They didn't treat me any different because I didn't have insurance either which made me feel a lot better and was more than willing to work with me! I would definitely recommend them!

Anabel J

I will certainly return, as staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great care was given and procedure went great. Great care at a very reasonable price.

The people here are so amazing! The doctor is so patient, caring and truly concerned about you. They worked with me knowing I needed work done but financially was having trouble. They treated me like family not like a first time patient. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

It was my 17 year olds first time in office. She needed a root canal. She loved the dentist and staff. She said they explained EVERYTHING in full detail and did not leave her to wonder about her visit. Made sure she was numb enough and feeling no pain. She actually loved the visit and looks forward to finishing her dental needs with them. The prices were very good and the office is great. Can't say enough about how good it feels to know your child is being taken care of. Thanks Lake Lanier Smiles. :) You have just gotten five customers for life.

I have been a client of Lake Lanier Smiles for some time now. On 8/25/14 I had the new one hour whitening procedure done. It actually takes a little longer than an hour including the prep, but WOW! My teeth were lifted EIGHT shades brighter! They look incredible. As always the staff was extremely capable and friendly. I love this dental practice!

Greer P

I had the best dental experience ever at Lake Lanier Smiles......from the friendly, welcoming staff to the gentle, professional treatment of Dr. Washington! I loved that Dr. Washington explained everything he was doing as he was working on my teeth and especially loved that he didn't try talking me into "unnecessary" procedures that I didn't really need. I HIGHLY recommend Lake Lanier Smiles!!! There needs to be many more stars to rate my experience there! **********

I had called over twenty dentist to get my crown replaced. I finally found a dentist office that was upfront about pricing and made me feel comfortable coming into the office. At Lake Lanier Smiles, the staff is professional and friendly and I felt at ease. Dr. Washington knew what he was doing and even gave me a solution to work within my budget. I will be sending all my friends and family.

Leigh B

Always look foward to going to the dentist now.

Lori P

My experience was very pleasurable. The staff is so helpful. I am always greeted with a smile. My wait is never long. My visit was for a cleaning and during the cleaning, I was made to feel so comfortable, and was asked if all was going well. I felt so relaxed even given the purpose of my visit. I would highly recommend this office to any of my friends

Wanda B

The staff is very professional. The hygienist is great, I did not feel like my teeth were being pulled while being cleaned like i have with previous dental offices. Dr Washington was great as well, very professional and caring. I highly recommend this Practice to anyone. I had a bad experience with another Dental office where the Dentist drilled through my tooth into my gum and nerves. I do not have that fear coming to this office and will be returning there to have some more work done very soon! Thank You for helping me overcome my fear of the chair Lake Lanier Smiles.

Robert S

People are always nice and professional. Dr Washington is very competent and helpful.

Terry R

I absolutely love this dental practice, and I have had a phobic fear of dental procedures my entire life!, ( terrible experience as a child). The waiting lobby is inviting, spacious, very clean, calming and well appointed, as are all of the treatment rooms. Also, EVERY member of the staff is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and thorough, they know their stuff! Lastly, Dr. Washington is a wonderfully competent and confident dentist. He has an excellent chair-side manner. He thoroughly explains each procedure. And, he is also has a gentle touch,and is very respectful of my mouth. In short, I highly recommend Lake Lanier Smiles!

Beverly C

I love the compassion and quality of care you guys give. However the last visit I had my regular cleaning and went to check out only to find out that there was a additional charge. I Fully expected to pay for the Nitrous but the additional charge I was never told of prior to check out..thanks
