I am a new patient at Willis&Associates Family Dentisty. If you need a friendly, polite staff, helpful you need to contact them right away. The people I have been in contact with are so happy, friendly and helpful. I had my teeth cleaned it was so easy compared to the other times I have had this done in the past at other dentist. My mouth was NOT sore and hurt for a couple of day after this. They are so gentle and caring to me I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS DENTIST OFFICE TO EVERYONE. You need to call to day if you are looking for a new Dentist .Thanks to all the staff at this dentist office.

Dr. Weatherwax and her staff are awesome. I haven’t been to a dentist in year and had a bad experience when I was young and had anxiety about going back to a dentist. Dr. Weatherwax takes time to explain her treatment plan and is very caring as well as her staff. Highly recommend the Stuarts Draft practice. Five stars without a doubt!!!
Duane D. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
These girls are great! I’m fairly anxious about dental work but they got me taken care of and also lowered my feelings of doom when arriving at the appointment. I’ve never reviewed anything so the fact that I’m writing this should say bunches. Friendly and understanding staff. Should’ve started coming here a long time ago. Hope this is helpful and done correctly.
That Guy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
What a great experience! From the young ladies at the front desk to Dr. Weatherwax, everyone one was super nice!! Dr. Weatherwax explained everything that she was doing and wasn’t pushy about any treatment I needed. She made some recommendations what what I could do to better improve my routine with cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend the Stuart’s Draft location!
Mike C. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The staff was super friendly walking in the door. The dentist and her assist were super nice and did a fantastic job. This is the only dentist I’ve went too where the did the x-rays, exam and cleaning all in the first visit. I’m not accustomed to that. They told me everything that was wrong, broke it down into different sections of my mouth, gave the cost of each and had already set dates for the next appts. Had to change some those dates but all in all, it was a great visit and I look forward to going back again. In fact my entire family is going here for all dental work.
Mark R. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had a dental emergency they fit me in that day,even though they are not my dentist or take my insurance they were very upfront about everything that needed to be done. The next day they scheduled me to pull the tooth again they were up front and great. They do things a lil different than some dentist,but I would recommend them to anyone. I have dentist anxiety very bad but the tech that was with me kept me calm ,so a big thanx to him (parks,parker) not actually sure which one to call you.SORRY. So if you have a dental problem or just need a dentist just look Willis Family dentistry up they have offices in four locations. I went to Stuarts Draft but I’m sure all the offices are great.
Angela B. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I can’t begin to say enough about this office. Even before I was an established patient they went about and beyond to help me when I was in a great deal of pain. And Dr. P…wow what an amazing dentist. She is the most selfless human being I have ever known. She was determined to get me out of pain….even if that meant she was staying late or even when she had me come to a different location. I will be forever thankful for this office and their amazing staff. Thank you guys so much….you rock
Tammy M. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Dentist and his assistant Courtney made my trip to the dentist an enjoyed experience with no pain! The office staff was amazing and they got me in the same day that I had my tooth pain which is amazing I’ve never had such a good experience with any other dentist office. The dental assistant Courtney so friendly and nice she explained everything so I understood what was going to happen on each of my visits. Truly a great dentist office. I encourage others to go to Willis and try there office its a family friendly place. Sincerely Doug Musgrove
But really. Everyone here is super amazing and i give them a lot of respect and appreciation! Thank you all so much!!! ♡
Over the years I have had many bad experiences with the Denitist. Last year my Dentist that I had for about 10 years, retired and went to see the one that took over for him. By the time I left the office, I was in tears and knew I needed to find a new Dentist to go to. At this point I was terrified to start seeing another new dentist, but knew I needed to find one ,as I was having several problems with my teeth. Had a few teeth that were bonded together over the years as my teeth were starting to loosen due to Periodontal Diesease. . I was very unhappy with the look and was very conscience with the smile that I had. As I drove past Willis Family Dentist in Stuarts draft, I decided to pull in and see if they would be willing to take me on as a patient. When I walked through the door and was greeted by a smiling face, I felt like right then and there, I had come to the right place. I explained my experience with Lindsey and she suggested that I make an appointment and assured me that they would help me in every way that they can. So the following week I started my process with all the work I had done. My first visit was with the Hygenist and Jessica also made me feel very comfortable. She took x-rays and mesaurements on all my teeth and explained some different options that could be done. At that time I also met with Dr. Pandey and they suggested the first thing that needed to be done was a deep cleaining on my upper teeth.So we set up an appointment to have that done . Once that was completed, then Dr Pandey discussed with me some options that could be done with my upper teeth. Unfortunately due to finances some of the options were just too expensive at this time. So we discussed trying to save the upper teeth that I did have left. We decided on crowns and bridge work for the uppers I was so fortunate to have Dr. Pandey and Courtney helping me with this procedure. They made me feel very comfortable through the whole process. When I saw the beautiful smile they gave me, I was so happy. I thank the whole staff at Willis Family Dentistry in Stuarts Draft for everything they have done for me. Am glad I have joined their family of patients there. THANK YOU, THANK YOU so much.
