Patient Testimonials

"I was petrified before I came in. ..probably more afraid than most. Dr.Jones and his staff completed a thorough exam of my teeth and gums, followed by a well-explained, DETAILED outcome and plan of action. Completed my second visit today - a very deep cavity needed filling. I was seen right on time and was completely satisfied with the entire process and outcome. I especially appreciated Kelly's ability to assuage my fear and apprehension. Great job all around! - Mildred L.

dentist lewes de

If you are a cigarette smoker who has been contemplating the switch to electronic cigarettes, also known as “vaping,” you might think you would be doing yourself—and your oral health—a favor. But you might want to think again.
