5-Star Dentistry, Service & Smiles

"Exceptional Dentistry & Sedation Center is by far the best dental care I've ever received. Not only are the staff super polite they are also very down to earth and chatty. With my previous dentist, it was always just run in and get out as soon as possible. However, these ladies make it actually enjoyable. Especially my hygienist, Brittany, she's so kind and genuinely funny. The second time I saw her she remembered my favorite band and went out of her way to pull them up for me during one of the longer cleaning processes. I truly can't recommend any other place more.”

Daniel A. Gainesville, FL

"Best dentist in Gainesville, Florida. Dr. Mowery and his staff are truly Exceptional! They listen to your concerns and provide amazing results. They treat you like a person and not just another patient. Furthermore, Dr. Mowery and his staff are trained in multiple areas of dentistry and cosmetic improvement. For general cleanings to dental reconstructive surgery, cosmetic improvements, and repair… they can do it all."

Jason L. Gainesville, FL

"If you need a dentist... go see Dr. Mowery and the team at Exceptional Dentistry & Sedation Center. Had major work done this week and they were so patient and kind to me. They let me cry and worked with me to have a solution for what was needed. Michelle held my hand and talked me through what to expect and never made me feel silly or inferior. I still am terrified of dentists...but this group lessens the fears. You must go see them if you need dental work!?"
