What our patients are saying

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Tina

“This place is awesome. I have been a denture patient for years. I needed an emergency extraction and was in a great deal of pain so I called for an appointment. I couldn’t get one that day so I decided to try the walk-in emergency service. The people are great and your comfort is really their main concern. From the time I walked in the door until I walked out was an hour and a half. That’s without appointment two extractions, and I was pain free. I would highly recommend them. They offer financing and will even split the cost over 3 months without any interest.”
– Tina

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Jessie

“What a wonderful experience! From Vicki at the front door to Gena the New Patient Coordinator, our welcome was warm and kind. When we got back to see Karla, Dr. Holder, and Rhonda, we were confident that we’d chosen the right place to care for my brother’s dental needs. Happy to have met them and looking forward to the next appointment!”
– Jessie

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Gloria

“Being a denture wearer for over 30 years and having several sets of dentures, I HAVE TO SAY…. this is the best place I have ever been to. I eat, talk, look and sound like I have my own teeth. After a year, I am still amazed at the fit— eating is now amazing!!!”
– Gloria

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Jackie

“Afdent has been an absolute lifesaver for me! I had not been to a dentist for nearly 10 years (embarrassingly). I chose to go to Afdent and for the first time I was not judged, lectured or made to feel bad. Every person I have dealt with at Afdent has been respectful, sweet and understanding. I have had to have quite a bit of work done due to my hiatus from going to the dentist. They have stuck to their word and I have promised I will continue to go! Everyone should check out Afdent in Fort Wayne!”
– Jackie

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Terry

“Awesome as always. Able to take care of everything in one appointment, instead of multiple appointments. Always friendly and informative.”
– Terry

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Melissa

“This is by far the best place for dentistry, they go over and beyond to help you and make you feel comfortable and to make this easy for you and that you look and feel great! Everyone there that works there are so nice and makes you feel like you are a person and not a number, and they prices are very good as well!! My whole family loves going there! Thank you afdent for all you have done for me and my family.”
– Melissa

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Deanna

“I had an emergency tooth repair and the staff was able to get me in right away! I was also pleased with the end results.”
– Deanna

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Susan

“This has been my “go to” dentist group for a few years. I come from the Baby Boom era of painful dentistry, so I was always scared to go. EVERYONE at Afdent is kind, friendly and professional. They take the time you need to explain options. Sarah has done my teeth cleaning regularly. I feel like family, following her through her dentist mission work to now her upcoming marriage. I hope to be with her as she continues to share her joyful life. They also have a 0% payment plan. My teeth have never been better and I love my smile. I’ve learned how important flossing is and do it daily. Trying to stay away from gum disease. Highly recommend, especially if you are scared to go to a dentist. They are gentle.”
– Susan

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Dennis

“I went in for a cleaning and checkup and all went well. I have never had a bad experience with Afdent Dental Services.”
– Dennis

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Sandy

“Received my “implant retained bridge” July 13 2017 and I’m still amazed at my awesome new smile!! Even more than the great smile is the fact that I no longer dread to sit down to eat a meal!! Unbelievable how comfortable it is after having an upper denture for 4 years. The whole thing was a process but the end result was even more than I had hoped for! I would like to personally thank Dr David Taler & the staff, Lisa, Kelly and Chris in the lab for all your efforts to assure quality, for your kindness & support through this journey. What a great team! Thanks again!”
– Sandy

Testimonial Fort Wayne – David

“I’ve been going to this location on Parnell for 4 years now. Ever since my first visit, the doctors and staff have always included me into their discussions on processes, options, etc…. and outcomes of each. Being included is a great feeling. Since then, I have had a lot of work done and my smile, I love to smile, reflects their work. Great advertisement for them! The staff have always been friendly, sociable, and thorough. You are never left alone in a room due to their great messaging system and because of that, you’re not in the chair for hours. Some may not like that there isn’t just 1 doctor you see each time, but I find it refreshing. With insurance companies, they work well with them. Before they do X-rays, crowns, implants, etc…, they make sure it’s covered. Now that all my work has been completed, I go in for cleanings 3-4 times a year. Each hygienist has always been friendly and sociable. They have pictures of their family in the rooms which always sparks conversation. Family, vacations, what we all do in our free time… next thing you know, you’re done and on your way home. If you haven’t tried Afdent yet, give them a try. You will be pleased and then, years from now, you’ll be writing a review like I’m doing now. =)”
– David

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Mike

“We were met at the front door with a very thoughtful hello and were assisted in registering. My wife has Alzheimer’s and is somewhat difficult to handle. The entire appointment went extremely well start to finish, thank you for being so thoughtful, we will be back thank you.”
– Mike

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Karen

“It was very pleasant and comfortable. They made the adjustments I needed and in less than 30 minutes. Also clean everything and it fits so much better. If anyone needs implants instead of regular dentures, this is the place to have them done. Could not take the junk to keep them in and the implants are so very comfortable and have stayed in place like regular teeth. Financing was really great and they accept insurance also. Everyone is very knowledgeable and professional and care how everything is fitting.”
– Karen

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Jane

“The fear and dread of dentist visits are NOT a part of my Afdent experience! I actually enjoy my cleaning appointments. My hygienist, Sarah, is an excellent hygienist and she ensures my comfort and provides me with thorough and pain-free cleanings. Her sparkling personality and her encouragement and welcome advice are thoroughly appreciated and I always leave with a clean-toothed, happy smile on my face. I love my Afdent experience!”
– Jane

“Both visits were very pleasant. They ensure you are comfortable and they explain everything thoroughly in understandable terms. Finance also ensures that you understand the billing, and they provide several different options for payments. Both my son and husband had EXTREME anxiety about dental appointments, yet they both praise Afdent and the staff that work there and are no longer afraid to go to the dentist. …we had Dr. Miller each time, and he is an absolute angel. He treated our family with much respect and was always pleasant.”

If you have financial trouble, they will work with you so a payment plan can be worked out. Wouldn’t think of going anywhere else!”

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Robbie

“Thanks to Afdent, I have been more than happy to recommit to dental care. I have had more than my share of difficult and money-focused dentists. The last couple experiences discouraged me from trying again for several years even though I have good dental insurance. Afdent doesn’t charge more than what is reasonable and the gentle, personable care is perfect! Any time I have a concern everybody there is attentive to every detail and doesn’t do anything without my approval first. My rating continues to be 5 stars even after getting several things done that I knew were needed for years. No pushing, no gouging, excellent service; who could ask for more? I recommend Afdent to all my family and friends!”

Testimonial Fort Wayne – Crystarion

“They were very good about going over what my insurance would cover and what my out of pocket expense would be.

Dental work itself was done very well, people there were helpful, courteous and conscientious about everything. Very glad I went there.”

“I really like going to Afdent (especially after coming from my long-time family dentist who really has terrible bedside manners) because I was able to be seen emergently, with the problems being fixed immediately! I was able to be seen by Dr. Allen because I had a trigeminal nerve reaction after a root canal, who explained to me what this was all about in follow up! He assured me and he was very knowledgeable about dentistry!! I appreciated that!!!! They are a little pricey, but they will work with you!!! I appreciate it all!!”
