Love Dr Roberts and her staff. Answered my myriad of concerns with time and attention it deserved. Very thorough & compassionate
Friendly staff and great service. They also have an orthodontist that visits on Wednesday so you can get it all done in one visit.
Great staff! Very attentive and professional.
The office was conveniently located, it was very pleasant and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Everyone was wearing facemasks and the 6ft distance rule was encouraged. I had to wait about 5 min before I was seen by the Endodontist Dr. S. Yussuf. The entire root canal procedure took about 30min and I was adequately anesthetized and I did not feel any pain. After the root canal I was seen by the the General Dentist Dr. J. Keith who took care of the crown. I did not required any anesthetic because I was already numbed. The entire procedure took about half hour and I did not feel any pain. Overall, I was very pleased with the entire experience with Sage Dental of Roswell. The only area that requires improvement is related to billing and payment. I was not informed about the overall root canal cost and I was not given a cost item breakdown.
Very friendly staff. They are making sure they take care all of my dental 🦷 needs. My progress is exceptional. I would definitely recommend.
