Dr. Moats and his team are exceptional! I've had a lot of dental work through the years and no one is as knowledgable, thorough and as skilled as Dr. Moats. He takes the time to get to know you as a patient and includes you in the decision making process so you feel in control of your care. I needed a new crown while pregnant and he was simply the best. I'll be going back post-baby for more care, ...

Dr. Moats is an excellent dentist. He’s very caring, fully explains all procedures, doesn’t push stuff you don’t need, offers alternatives that may be more economical, and is extremely meticulous in his work. His office staff is very friendly and his dental hygienist, Janet, is excellent as well. There’s no waiting for your scheduled appointment and I appreciate that they are considerate of my tim...

He is the best dentist I have ever had. I quit going to him for a while because I moved. I tried other dentists but they failed me. I now drive a little over two hours to go to him and it is worth it. He is conscientious, thorough and makes sure you feel no pain. He truly cares about his patients.

Dr. Moats is an incredibly warm, professional, and respected dentist. I was absolutely terrified and ashamed on my first visit - I’d been away from the dentist for nearly two decades due to fear and budget constraints.

Very well. I met Dr. Moats about 30 rears ago. My teeth were in bad shape, and over time he has taken them to excellent condition - he is meticulous about every aspect of his work, and I would recommend him without reserve, especially to those with serious problems. And his staff is outstanding.

Eighteen years ago a friend suggested I try Dr. Moats saying "He's more an artist than a dentist.". She was right but only half right. I had been to three established dentists and none of them had the education, training, and experience to compare with Dr. Moats. The proof was in the pudding as they say. In one visit, I went from sub-par care to extraordinary dental care. Yes, Dr. Moats is an arti...

I’ve gone to Dr.Moats for about 30 years and have never considered going to another dentist. Janet, his hygienist, is very thorough, friendly, and patient centered. I’ve had a variety of dental work done there over the years and highly recommend Dr. Moats and his team.
