Explained xray and ordered med. Good.
Dr. Harris has always been very nice and helpful.I think he is great and Im very happy to have him as a doctor.
process/overview of the steps would have been helpful
he always acts like I dont know what Im talking about when I say I think I have a cavity. I had 2 fillings done and now my teeth feel very uneven.
Good all went well.
Dr Harris is fabulous
My situation a little complicated was given thorough explanation (I am an MD)

I was so happy with the dentist, I wish I would of done this years ago.
Good sense of humor w/o overdoing it!
Best experience with a dentist so far, he was very respectful & patient w/my questions.
Dr. Harris is really great at explaining and being patient and hearing my concerns. he has a kindness that he conveys well, I really appreciate it and the shot delivery was excellent and the bits post-filling is amazingly accurate. great experience
I had a tooth ache and he was very good at explaining my options, giving his opinion and letting me make the final decision.
Dr Harris is always friendly and kind.
reviewed the procedure and brought me an example to see to ensure I was still in agreement with the procedure. They did a great job.
Dr Harris and his team are excellent
Dr. didnt really talk at all or explain what he was going to do before he did it. I felt unsure of what was happening and worried about the outcome.
he ended up choosing a better quality crown after I left and write off the difference. Understood my concern to have crown look natural -
Dr. Harris is always very pleasant and explains everything to me.
dr. Harris has my complete confidence
This was a big filling. I was very nervous & anxious. The girls & Dr. Harris were good to me.
Dr. Harris very good job.
The best dentist I have ever had!
Dr. Harris and his Assistant are very easy to joke with, but very professional, makes the going to the dentist, much better.
Very good experience with the dentist. And the lady attending to me before the dentist came in was helpful in explaining what would be done.
Dr. Harris is all around excellent to work with.
I worry about what to do next. I wish we would have formed a plan.
Dr. Harris has such a great personality. Love his sense of humor.
my son said the dentist was nice and explained things to him
Dr. Harris took extra time and effort to seek out an answer to a fluoride question I had. I wouldn't have minded more information on what he was doing while doing the work, it was infrequent, but partly I didn't mind the efficiency at which he completed the task. I had NO discomfort, that was GREAT, and the procedure went smoothly and turned out well. I was very happy about the ease of the appointment
I am so highly satisfied with Dr. Harris & team that I hope I never will have to make another choice. They all are outstanding people.
I was reassured regarding the exam & treatment.
Very pleasant interaction
My previous dentist was not as thorough as it was here! I was really pleased here.
Questions answered and very professional and pleasant.
Love Dr. Harris.
I feel very comfortable with this dentist always tell me what the problem's are and the way's to treat the problem.
Dr. called me at home to make sure all was good.
The whole team is outstanding. Dr Harris excellent. I don't know many people who make seeing a Dentist the first thing on their "Let's do something fun" list. But he makes it bearable.
No problems at all.
Questions answered and very professional and pleasant.
My previous dentist was not as thorough as it was here! I was really pleased here.
Dr. Harris is a very knowledgeable and he has never steered me wrong. I am very confident with his advice.
I was impressed that Dr. Harris remembered a question that I asked him months ago and related back to those concerns again.
Dentist was professional and kind
they are so professional
I have "complete confidence" in Dr. Harris. He has taken great care of my dental needs for years.
My dentist Dr. Harris made my visit very comfortable.
Dr Harris is very friendly and courteous.
Dr. Harris understands I have a pain phobia. He took the time to outline in detail what a crown would do, the procedure and care afterwards. He explained the benefits of crowning my tooth vs. leaving it exposed.
I came in the day after my cavity was filled, due to a sharp piece on my tooth. I told him where it was and he went in and sanded down the whole length of my tooth and didn't even touch the sharp part. He did this twice because I had to tell him twice he was missing the sharp part all together. now most of my tooth is sanded down way more than the comfort level. When he didn't have to sand any of that down to began with, if he would have listened to me the first time and took the time to let me show him exactly what I needed. Now my bite is off and chewing is uncomfortable. nothing I can do now but get use to it.
Casey and Dr. Harris are amazing, professional, courteous, and kind.
He ground my tooth down to nothing and then said it needed to be pulled. He could have just pulled it
The dentist only looked at the tooth that I pointed out thought had cavity. Didn't look at the rest said there fine
Always nice and caring.
Instead of pulling the wisdom tooth, he took out the broken portion of the tooth embedded in the gum and ground down the rest of the tooth. Good to go!
Dr. Harris is very concerned about doing a thorough job, while doing it in the most cost effective way.
I am very pleased. I will use Dr. Harris again if he is available. This was a rush appointment my crown came off & the took in front of it had a porcelain filling edge break off.
Im very satisfied
Poor trouble shooting of my problem, an indifferent attitude, lack of confidence with a plan of action, all of the above got me into trouble and I now suffer with the consequences.
I have nothing but good things to say about my doctor and his treatments. #6. Extremely confident.
Dr. Harris is very caring & concerned for my satisfaction along with his staff.
Dr. Harris was so calming and reassuring. I have a phobia of needles and they completely understood.
Dr Harris was very polite and helpful . He also did an awsome job on my front tooth,
Dr. Harris is one of the best.
Dr. Harris had a great sense of humor, I felt comfortable with him & his staff.
This was a great experience. My old dentist of 30 years retired & also his hygienist retired. Jessica & Dr. Harris are GREAT replacements.
Good, no problems.
Every thing is always great with my experience at Dental Associates. Thank you!
I like everyone at Dental Associates. I have no complaints. Keep up what your doing there and I'll be happy. (Thanks again!)
I thought I needed a crown but Dr. Harris assured me I didn't. I appreciate not spending that money!!
I actually love going to Dr. Harris and his team. They are very caring and make your experience better. I hate going to dentists and mistrust them greatly, due a childhood experience getting a mouth ful of fillings due to a chart mix up. Fortunately I do not need to see a Dr. often. Dr. Harris is the first dentist I do not feel the need to clutch the chair arms, or have anxiety with. He is very professional and caring.
Dental Associates was recommended to me by a person who goes there. I'm glad I did go and plan on returning and recommending myself.
Wonderful dentist & dental assistant - very glad to have Dr. Harris.
I am happy to see that you are now providing a survey to gather information from your patients. The last time I visited Dental Associates before this appointment, I had the WORST dentist I have ever met. She was totally incompetent and inconsiderate. I expressed this to the dental assistant and to the person at the payment area and to my surprise, never heard from Dental Associates regarding my conversation. This led me to believe that they must not care. The only reason I came back at all was that my husband sees Dr. Harris and told me how good he is and how well his team operates. So I decided to give Dental Associates one more try. Dr Harris definitely is a professional and is very considerate, as is his dental assistant.
I got what i ask for and was very satisfied. I'm very bothered if pressure is put on to have things done that i don't want. I HATE SALES PITCHES. I will be looking into an implant when i,m financially ready.
all good visit.Tthankyou
If my Implant goes well i will be boasting about it to everyone and tell them it was done by Dental associates.
Please consider a review of CDC infection control guidelines for hand hygiene glove changing between tasks. Glove are not only to protect hcw but patients too.
I've been coming for many years, have recommended to others, even tried a dentist closer to home and returned cause didn't care for one tried.
Dr. Harris and all the staff are very kind and helpful and do a great job of putting me at ease and the work done is as good as it gets!
Been going there so many years don't remember!
Was a scheduling mix up. Waited half hour. Staff was good at keeping us updated.
Ipad used for health history was pretty dirty. Suggest cleaning between patients.
My comments reflect a comparison to my previous dentist which may be unfair depending upon the goals of this office. I dislike coming here but its affordable.
Payment is clinics main concern not patient care.
COLD. Lack of concern. Only looked at 1 tooth NOT rest of teeth; no comments; no 'care'.
This is for my cleaning. Not my fillings.
I dont know, I dont use that stuff except bathroom. Gross!
*Dr. Haris has very bad bedside manners. He is just too good for people very arrogant! The other one who helped with my cleaning very nice down to earth.
#1. No one asks. #3. Never talked to about it.
My experience at Dental Associates was excellent
Dr. Harris is by far the best dentist I've ever had. Very professional, personable, and competent.
The oral surgeon was not available until April 4. I called back and canceled the appointment because was able to find another local surgeon that could see us sooner.
Took an hour - hard to hold your mouth open that long.
I had never seen this Dr. before and was concerned about never knowing who my dentist would be. Dr. H. was absolutely wonderful. I am hoping he is there for some time and does
Nothing but to say he is my kind of dentist - I made sure I would have him when I had my teeth fixed on second visit.
Treatment planned over several visits - originally planned 6 wk. ahead. Moved to next day as needed. How can I complain?
Caused pain with shot to nerve week & half later still have some pain
Dr. Harris is conservative which was what I was looking for at age 71 I don't need the latest and greatest. IRV
arrived with pain on both sides of my mouth -- no treatment done to alleviate any of it that day
I walked in - a gold inlay had come out - in... had to clean & re-cement - Very accommodating. Saw me right away!
The dentist I saw seemed very experienced.
He seemed to just be there to do the work. I asked questions about a different issue & he didn't answer my questions. He said someone else would have to look at me but no appointment was made or even discussed.
Have had 3 different dentist's in 6yrs. absolutely ridiculous!!!
Novacaine takes a longer time to work for me and *Dr. Harris waited and checked to be sure it was working. I have horrible gag reflexes and a small mouth. Dr. Harris worked around it very nicely. I have had a lot of dental work done
Asst. did all the talking.
didn't spend a lot of time together. He explained diagnosis and treatment options clearly.
He had the shakes which made me question is ability & when I mentioned I felt a rough edge on my filling he seemed as though I was over reacting.
The dentist is not a very out going person. He does his work - that is it! I thanked him when I left, then he thanked me after I approach him. Guess that is his personality!
This was a professional service.
Dentist did not talk much. I notice that the assistant and dentist talk about personal things while they are doing their work. The same is true of the dentist and Hygienist.
I wanted a tooth fixed. He was more concerned about my bridge instead of my tooth which I was concerned with.
Dr. Harris is kind and caring never rude
So far so good.
I was impressed with Dr. Harris especially with his concern about my comfort level during the procedure.
Doctor Harris is pretty smooth and made me feel a little more relaxed during my treatment.
the doctor mixed me up with somebody else and was prepared to perform the other person's treatment when he first arrived. An honest mistake, but I was concerned.
I and my wife drive in 35 miles only thing it cost a lot for older people like us, to have thing don't we need a brake.
I had been having pain for a few weeks and was a new patient so they did xrays. He looked at the area and the xrays and said "I think it's the back molar with decay - have it extracted" I then asked him ifr it was a wisdom tooth and he said "I don't know
as a person who breathes mostly through the mouth, durning the appointment, I did have a hard time breathing, trying to take breathes when ever possable, it would have been nice to have the dr stop here & there & allow me to breath, I have had this issue
Dr Harris takes time to explain and will even draw a picture if you need it to explain a problem or procedure
Dentist claimed I had a small cavity, which he repaired/filled and ever since I have had problems with it.
The reason for my visit was because the fillings in back of my front teeth were starting to show through dentist looked at them & indicating the seal was broke/leaking. After visit, I noted that I can still see the fillings they don't look any different.
Dentist (Harris) disrespectful attitude towards pt. with rude manors in front of pt & hygienist
Dr. Harris was wonderful!
I was suppose to have 3 teeth filled - only did 2 - he asked if the tooth bothered me and it wasn't so he didn't care for it. I asked about it and he mumbled something about flossing & don't know where I am with that tooth. Is it decaying or not? Man oh man
Still having a problem with one of the filling sites.
Dr. Harris is excellent.
Good experience. Very clear & concise. Sufficient.
Dr. Harris, his assistant and Marie very great in treating my son's dental emergency and follow up care his is receiving. Thanks to all who stayed and for their concern and help.
