No Place Better

Let's face it - who among us looks forward to going to the dentist? I have never had a bad experience in Dr. Toland's office, even if I have to have a filling. The staff is wonderful, always upbeat and friendly and certainly very professional. I feel great when I come out too. I am so happy to have found this office because I feel like they care about me, they know about me, and they are always on top of concerns. There is no pressure to change what you don't want done to your teeth like pushing veneers, or overdoing crowns, or making you feel like your teeth are terrible. But they care about your dental maintenance and that's a good thing. It strikes me the office is a real team and a happy one at that.

Friendly & Professional

Today, I had a lot of dental work done. The staff was very helpful friendly and courteous. You could tell they really enjoyed what they were doing. The staff always communicates what is going to be done and how much it will cost. Dr. Toland is very professional and detailed in her work. You don't leave unless your are satisfied with the work that was done. I believe Dr. Toland is an artist who wants you to appreciate the work she does to not only make you healthy, but happy as well. My 10-year old son also had some work done. Dr. Toland and the staff know how to make young children comfortable in what can be an uncomfortable situation.

High Quality Service

The Hygenist Bles greeted us with that great smile & great attitude! Always on time. Front desk always remembers our names & acknowledge our presence. My son has to have some work done on his teeth & Dr. Toland explained & showed me on the screen where the work needs to be done. The treatment coordinator had my cost done in about 15 min. We found a Appt. Within 2 weeks. Very clean office. Staff is just wonderful here.

Best. Dentist. Ever!

Dr. Toland is amazing, kind, patient, gentle, knowledgeable, and thorough. I have never had a dentist who can numb the the right area with a single shot! And the less shots, the better. Dr. Toland and her staff work seamlessly to provide the best quality dental care. Bles, the hygienist, is amazing as well. She is always mindful of areas in my mouth that are a bit more sensitive. And I love the way my teeth feel at the end of the appointment. I am very thankful for everyone and the services they provide 🙂

Great team of professionals, friendly and trustworthy.

I haven't been to the dentist for quite some time because of my insecurity about my oral health. I finally visited the dentist and I was welcomed immediately when I entered the door. They kept records of my previous visit so check in wan't a hassle at all and I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen. Christina performed my x-rays, cleaning and periodontal exam. She did an awesome job ensuring that I was comfortable and took the time to briefly explain procedures and results. They had a good selection of relaxing music keeping things calm and smooth. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Toland and she gently gave me all the bad news with the proof in x-rays. I appreciated her sincere concern about my teeth and health. After she recommended a plan, I felt better that every issue in my mouth was identified and there was a plan in place. At the front desk, the young lady clearly explained the cost and what my insurance would cover. Also, there was no pressure to get the work done. I had peace of mind. Today's visit made it clear that I can trust this team with my dental needs and that they will be professional no matter how bad my condition. Thank you!

High Quality Service, Professional, Friendly

Friendly, helpful and skilled staff will answer the questions you have over the phone or when you arrive. When you meet Dr. Meghan Toland you can tell she has a gentle manner which is reflected as she works on you with traditional dental tools. She is also very skilled working with the dental computer programs she uses right next to you. Today I had an appointment to replace an old crown installed by a previous dentist. My old cap had been moving up and down slightly while I ate and I knew that meant the seal had been broken inviting decay. Dr. Toland took computerized x-rays of the tooth. After a few seconds of gently pulling, she said the cap would not slip off and she would need to use a drill to break it up in pieces. I thought ``uh-oh`` but it turned out there was no pain. No pain at ALL. Dr. Toland found decay beneath the cap and quickly removed it without pain. Then I watched Dr. Toland as she sat beside me using a computer working with software that was going to generate a porcelain replacement while I wait. (There was no equipment like that available years ago at my past dentist.) Dr. Toland's use of technology will help you save time. I highly recommend Authentic Dental Designs.

The Best!

Dr. Toland and her team are caring and helpful. I look forward to my next six month cleaning and check up. A perfect job! The people in this office are calm and always smiling. They make me feel that I’m in good hands. Dr. Toland or her assistant often call me after a treatment to check how I’m doing. How many dentists do we know that do that? We now recommend Dr. Toland to our friends and family.

Wonderful Dentist

Wonderful dentist, very kind and informative. You can trust Dr. Toland to take the best approach necessary for you! Her concern is your health and your needs! The hygienists that work there are also very good at what they do and are helpful in explaining everything to you. Everyone (including the receptionists!) are very pleasant to work with and go out of there way to make sure you are comfortable and everything works out for you!
