What Our Patients Say About Us

    The visit to Dr. Cleveland was a good experience. He makes you not fear coming to the dentist. I usually am very nervous but with him I was calm and felt safe. He is the greatest.


    From the moment I called to make an appt. the staff was very friendly. They made me feel welcome (I am a new patient). My hygienist was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Robinson was also friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I enjoyed my visit! Looking forward to many more years with the staff there.

    Jennifer G Customer since 2013

    This dental office is wonderful. The entire staff is friendly and caring. Having worked in the dental/orthodontic field in the past, this office does things correctly and they keep up with technology as well. Dr. Cleveland is a very caring man, which shows when he calls your home to see how you are doing after procedures. This dental practice is a blessing to have here in Jefferson.

    Dennis R Customer since 2008

    It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Robinson. I was impressed with his thoroughness at the conclusion of my prophy appointment. As always, the entire staff are friendly and fun. I look forward to future appointments.
