Our patients leave smiling
The care I received was of the highest quality. I was getting braces put on and Lisa and Dr. Perret were wonderful.
The best dental office! We left coast dental and we are so glad we did! The office staff are professional, friendly, caring, knowledgeable, and best of all there prices are actually fair. We have referred 2 other friends here and both of them called me and thanked for sending them to Advanced Dental. The dentists- Koshy & Herron are both wonderful.
Had an appointment on 1/31/18. Staff at front desk was very friendly. I was greeted with a smile . Wait time…. 2 minutes if that!! Dental Tech was really pleasant and made me feel soooo comfortable. Dr Herron greeted me with a handshake and smile. And went over the treatment plan and offered other options. Which worked out Great!!! I wish I came here first , instead of going to Tampa Health…
I was pleased that I got taken back early as I had arrived 15 minutes early. Dr. Herron is always very conscientious of her work & takes her time getting the crown & buildup just right. Her assistant was very professional also & took the time to explain everything she was doing.
My son & I love this office! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable & courteous. From the staff, to the hygienist, to the ortho: Awesome Sauce!!

I want to take this opportunity to highlight my appreciation for the work of Dr. Jurgita Herron who is one of the two best dentists I’ve ever had. Her work is excellent, and she takes the time to study carefully th…

I had an overall great experience here when recieving my Crown. It’s been years since I have last been there but their work is quality!

They examined it for about 5 minutes and exclaimed it was the best looking crown they had ever seen with exact lines of detail and even a frosted tip as my other teeth are. Because of this, I figur…

The expertise of the providers in my dental care delivery.
Moses, my dental hygienist, is very nice and he truly cares about the health of my mouth.
During my recent appointment, I was very nervous. But, Dr. Koshy and the rest of the staff were caring and professional in their treatment of me. Everyone took my needs into consideration.
Dr. Koshy is awesome. She worked with me, took care of my long term dental issues and gave me a reason to smile again. Thank you so much for your patience. Advance Dental Care of Temple Terrace makes going to see the dentist a trip to look forward to.

love you all and the service you give
Fast, friendly, efficient
I was not kept waiting long at all and the assistant was kind and knowledgeable. Dr. Koshy is very competent and kind. I was thrilled to get the permanent crown placed correctly and easily. It has made all the difference in eating again. My temporary was placed a little “high” and my bite was off – so I was not very comfortable for 2 1/2 weeks. Good experience!
Because I think the overall experience was very good.
I don’t generally recommend. Dr. Herron is excellent & her assistant, Kim Wood is also excellent & very helpful. Mosen also does a very good job.

Dr Heron is the best dentist I have ever used
I came in for a second opinion regarding the fit of temporary dentures that were done in another dental office.
