"My family have been patients of Orlando Advanced Dentists for many years. Dr. Roach is the best. She is very caring and knowledgeable. My wife and I trust her completely with all of our dental care. The office staff is great and Arika is an excellent hygienist."
"Good place, great service, helped me find a good surgeon to remove my wisdom teeth that had been bothering me for ages. I'm truly grateful to them."
"Best dentist I’ve ever been to! I’ll never go anywhere else."
"Even though OAD is out of network I will forever call this my home dentist ❤️ Patricia is an amazing dentist! I love that they have an all female staff!! I had dental work done a few years back at Williston dental and had terrible service. Patricia has had to redo multiple fillings and has made the procedure absolutely painless, without anesthesia! I have had a fear of dentists and now that fear is gone :) I always know I am in great hands with OAD! I can’t recommend them enough :)"
"My family has been going to this dental office for more than 15 years. The care is the most excellent I have ever received in my six decades of going to the dentist. The results of work done on my teeth have been excellent. Friendly, competent, and caring staff are the icing on the cake!!"
