I was greeted warmly as I entered & was surprised at how cozy and welcoming the office felt. It was easy to relax even though most peoples' nerves are on edge at the dentist. I was called back promptly and my dental hygienist helped me feel more at ease. Dr. Nail took as much time as I needed to explain my options and help me make a plan to get my teeth healthy and they also gave me options for payment plans that made me feel less overwhelmed & I left with a gift to welcome me as a new patient.

The Absolute Best!
Let me start by saying, I HATE THE DENTIST! However, I started going to Dr. Nail years ago…and I have never been to anyone else. They are honest, sincere, and take excellent care of me and my family. I have sent everyone to them. My family of four, my mother and father…etc…when anyone asks me who I use, I say, “You absolutely have to try Dr. Nail and his incredible staff!” You absolutely cannot go wrong by coming to their beautiful office and visiting with the staff. I promise you won’t go anywhere else after your experience with them! Amanda Davis

Great office and staff!
My family has gone here for several years and love going to the dentist! My oldest daughter had to have some fillings and never even knew she got a shot. She actually was convinced that Dr. Nail didn’t give her one even though he did. The front office staff is friendly and warm, which seems to be a rarity in offices now days. The hygienists are professional and very thorough. I can’t think of a better office to meet our dental needs. We recommend this office to everyone that we know as they are truly exceptional! Mary M.

Highly Recommend!
I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Nail & his staff. After seeing my hometown dentist for 25+ years, Dr. Nail had big shoes to fill & he has done an exceptional job. Highly recommend to anyone in the Athens/Oconee area. Melissa M.

Awesome experience !!
My son had a cavity that was hurting him and needed some relief fast. I called around to several offices and no one could get him in until the end of the week and some even the next week. When I called the office the staff worked him in that day and they were so nice and welcoming. We had a great experience from the time we walked in until the time we walked out! Victoria A.

Dr. Nail and his staff have always been very professional, friendly, and helpful working to ensure our family has the best possible oral heath outcomes. When expensive dental work has been needed, Dr. Nail and Debbie have worked to help make the procedures work within our family budget, which is very much appreciated! We will be patients for life! Catherine Teare K.

Everyone is wonderful in your office and I always enjoy seeing you! Have wonderful holidays! Adele
