    I try to avoid doctors, hospitals, and modern-day medications and treatments for as long as I can because I am more of a natural treatment person. But I’m very happy and satisfied with my first dentist visit. I’m very pleased with the services and the care I have received. The staff is friendly, very helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. All my questions were accurately answered and all my concerns were properly taken care of. Their goal is to provide the best care for their patients and maintain their loyalty. The facility surely lives up to its name ‘Smile USA’ because the care and the assistance they provide will definitely put a SMILE on your face.


    Without a doubt, the best dental care facility I’ve ever been to. Alicia Garcia was so encouraging and extremely caring when I got my root canal done. She and her team worked together to make me feel at ease and comfortable. I’m extremely grateful for the quality of service. I’m more than happy to call them my dental office. #LoveThem

    I am a long-time patient of Smile USA and have always been satisfied with the care I have received. The new offices on Salem Avenue are quite impressive and really beautiful. Everyone, from the receptionist to the dentists are friendly and caring. I appreciate that the staff always explains the dental procedures and answers all of my questions.


    Been going to them for years and never had any complaints. I myself am not a fan of dentists, but the atmosphere, and the vibe of the place overall creates an all time effective and comfortable feeling. Totally recommend this place for all your beauty smile needs!
