"It's difficult to know where to begin! Our family of 4, plus my mother, have all been cared for by Dr. Toms and his staff for over 20 years. From my children's dental needs (wisdom teeth, too!) to my elderly mother's care, Dr. Toms has always helped us sort through all options and guided us all the way. His skill and sensitivity put both of my children at ease and they now are adults who are comfortable with dental visits. Dr. Toms has been a great friend to our family! Very highly recommended."- J.M. / Google / Mar 22, 2022

"Kind, professional staff led by a very knowledgeable and caring dentist. Very accommodating to patients, they work as a team. They strive for excellence in all areas of their services. Office is beautifully decorated and well organized. Myself and a large part of my family have been regular patients for years. Now that I’ve moved out of the immediate area I still drive back to keep my dental care on the same high level with the same people."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Sep 28, 2021
"Great Dentist. friendly, efficient and personable staff. The dentist is honest and will not push unnecessary procedures."- C.C. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I recently moved to GA and had not established care with a dentist yet. While I was eating, a crown from a previous root canal came off. So, I needed to find a dentist ASAP! I have pretty significant dental-related anxiety and previously sought out a dentist certified in sedation dentistry for this reason. I found several several recommendations for Dr. Toms online and was pleasantly surprised and relieved to learn that he is certified and proficient in both oral and IV sedation. I called his office to schedule an appointment and did not expect a next-day appointment! The staff was so friendly on the phone, and even more welcoming in person! They made me feel like a long time regular patient from the first moment I met them! I filled out all of my paperwork online before my appointment and just had to sign them once I arrived., The check-in process was smooth and quick, and I waited less than 10 minutes to see Dr.,Toms., They even scheduled my cleaning 2 days later! Highly recommend!"- J.M. / Google / May 23, 2021

What to Expect
A regular dental appointment will include a dental exam and professional cleaning. Additional treatments may be suggested if needed. Prior to any treatment, Dr. Toms will talk to you about the options and methods recommended for you or your child to correct issues, such as misaligned teeth, cavities, and more. Dr. Toms can also recommend proactive procedures, such as treatments with fluoride and sealants for children with developing teeth. The good news is that will do our best to make appointments around the same time and on the same day to work within your time frame easier.
At the end of each dental visit, Dr. Toms will help you come up with an individual plan to maintain your family's oral health. A key element is having a good home oral hygiene regimen, which means regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash use. Dr. Toms or a member of his team can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques or suggest products for specific concerns. Attending all routine visits will also help Dr. Toms watch your family's dental health and catch minor issues before they develop into bigger concerns.
