I had never been to this office and had an emergency this morning - my regular dentist was out of town - and I can't say enough about how well my 8 yr old was attended to by Dr. Sona!! Last night he lost about half of a front permanent tooth and she repaired it and gave great care and comfort to him and me! She is highly skilled and caring!

Alisia did a beautiful job in cleaning Mike's teeth. I watched every move. Had concerns how he would respond but it all went well. Her recommendation for another visit in 3 months is exactly what I think he needs as well. God Bless All of you & the staff

I have been a patient of Dr. Hatcher's for almost 4 years and enjoy the helpfulness and positivity of the entire staff. My cleanings, X-ray experience, and procedures have been thorough and beneficial to maintaining my health. Dr. Hatcher and his entire staff are wonderful to work with through dental anxiety. My fiance has had a deep fear of dentistry for many years. Dr. Hatcher's staff was very understanding and accommodating to his needs. They worked with him through the X-Ray and exam process and ensured his comfort with what was happening. On the day of oral surgery, the staff was very helpful and ensured he was comfortable and properly sedated during the procedure. They kept me informed of what was happening. They were very helpful to ensure that his pain was managed, we were informed, and proper healing was occurring. He doesn't remember the procedure itself, which is good. This has alleviated his fears to the extent that he is ready for future procedures and the overall health that they bring. Thank you for all that you do to bring quality dental care to your patients with the needs a whole person approach.

We took our almost 3 year old daughter in for her first "official" checkup. She had gone to my dentist office a few months ago, but would not open her mouth. Dr. Sona and Brittany were awesome with our daughter and she did great this time. Luckily, no cavities! All of the staff that we met were pleasant and welcoming. Happy to have been recommended here.

The staff were extremely helpful during all phases of planning, everyone demonstrated the hightest level of professionalism, and the procedure went off without a hitch (as far as I can tell, though I may have tried to bite someone while under anaesthetic. I hate the dentist office THAT much!) I am looking forward to my next visit, which is a never-heard-before statement regarding dental visits. Dr. Hatcher and the staff provided a level of customer concern and care that I've never experienced anywhere else, especially in a dental office. Kudos to all of you for a job well done, and for transforming what I'd considered to be a fate worse than death into a pain free, pleasant, and even fun experience!

Once again, I have just returned from a stress free, pain free trip to "the dentist". That's because MY dentist is Dr. Steven Hatcher in Greensboro, NC. His entire staff is so friendly and personal that I never feel rushed or like I am just another patient. Today I got the special treatment of actually getting to have bite wing x-rays, something my severe gag reflex has prohibited me from having in many many years. Dr. Hatcher has state of the art digital equipment that is available for use on patients like me. Thank you for a great cleaning and for your patience with me. I am all smiles! :)

Okay, I'm not a huge fan of visits to the dentist, but I have NEVER had a bad experience in your office! I had been a former patient of Dr. Grubb, so I was a bit concerned when I heard he was retiring. No need to worry about that any more.. I’d recommend your practice to anyone!
