Dr. Wunderle was very upbeat, kind, and very professional. His nurses and other staff were extremely nice and made me feel really at ease. I'm definitely considering a dental implant and I would love for Dr. Wunderle to perform the procedure!

The staff of this location is AMAZING! I am one of those people that are terrified of anything dental (which is why I ended up here) the staff was amazing. They made me laugh and smile the entire time... even before the laughing gas. They played my Gangster Rap while I was going to sleep and the entire time they were working on me. ( I heard them telling someone that music was the previous patients request) I chuckled. Dr. Wunderle III is AMAZING! I had major work done and he did a great job. I would send any one of my friends or family to him! He also has been very patient with me as I am not an easy patient. Can't rave enough about this office and the care that they have given me.

Dr. Wunderle III was extremely nice. He made me feel very comfortable before a nerve wrecking procedure and outlined everything I would need to know. The staff was very helpful, professional, and kind. They treated me like their own friends and family.

Dr. Wunderle has taken excellent care of me and my needs. I have always been given an appointment to come in within a very short amount of time. I've never had to wait more than 1 day for an appointment. He is very friendly and makes you feel at ease. He takes time to explain his procedures and what to expect. His staff is also friendly and helpful with explaining the procedures and what to expect. Both the staff and Dr. Wunderle never make you feel rushed and they show genuine concern for whatever your needs are.

I have had some very unusual oral problems within the last year. When I first met Dr. E. Belinfante, I knew that I was finally with a physician I could depend on to take care of everything. He is kind, compassionate, friendly and listens to what the patient has to say. So far, Dr. B is the first doctor who has helped me in any way. I have a few more visits scheduled and finally after a year long fruitless search, I will be back to who I was when all this began.

I was having a toothache in one of my wisdom teeth after doing an xray it was found that I needed three pulled. I was extremely nervous and anxious about the procedure. Dr. Bankstone is staff were so helpful in making me comfortable and explained the entire procedure in detail. The day of, I walked in somewhat anxious but a little more relaxed than the day before (thanks to the meds). I was put under and it was the most painless procedure ever. I did have some soreness and swelling but nothing that required an additional visit and most importantly no infection. Great service!! I will always recommend Dr. Bankstone.

I was just to get a tooth extraction that the previous dentist could not remove because I was in pain ! But when I came to this place a 45 min procedure seemed like 4 mins ! I don't remember feeling any pain during the procedure. The staff were very friendly .

Dr. Blair and staff were wonderful. I was scared to death since I had a bad experience with another dentist. He and his staff made me very comfortable and explained everything. I had multiple teeth pulled and everyone was amazing. I am 100% satisfied and have already referred a family member and would recommend to anyone. Thanks so much to everyone.

The need to have oral surgery was a surprise. Fortunately, my dentist referred me to Dr. Henry Blair w/ Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery (Kennestone office) & once they learned I was in pain, they got me in the very next day. The front office staff was very helpful & friendly. Dr. Blair explained everything to me. He & his team took such GREAT care of me. I felt that I was in good hands & the entire process went perfectly. I highly recommend Dr. Blair. He's a great doctor! Exceptional treatment.

My daughter had 3 extractions in preparation for braces. She was quite nervous. Staff was very kind and made her feel relatively safe. Assured her she would not be hurt. Dr. Belanfante did a great job. Afterwards she had next to no pain, and healed very quickly with no problems. She actually remembers very little of the morning which is fine by me.
