I wish I had more stars to rate DR Zelby & his Team! After extensive research on DR Zelby, I made the appointment for a partial with implants. DR Zelby & Team welcomed me with open arms. I did not feel embarrassed because of the condition of my mouth, nor did I feel nervous or uncomfortable. These are “good people” that CARE & are pro’s at what they do! And I am very happy to know Kimberly Long, one of DR Zelby’s hygienest – she’s the BEST! MG

I think it was the best dentist visit I’ve ever had! I called the office in excruciating pain from a wisdom tooth that needed to be pulled and they scheduled me right away. Once I arrived, I was seen almost immediately, without any wait time. The staff and Dr. Zelby are amazing and very friendly, professional and informative. They reviewed the issue and explained my options, to ensure I understood. Once he numbed my mouth, he had the tooth out in literally a minute or two and I never felt a thing! I also barely had any recovery time and was not even sore after the procedure, like I had been when visiting other dentists! He also even informed me, that I had an additional cavity I would need to take care of. As a person who normally dreads the doctors or dentist, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Zelby to anyone! Their office is very welcoming and makes you feel extremely calm and comfortable, even if you are in extreme pain and you will not find a better dentist anywhere!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Zelby’s for over 30 years and can’t imagine having anyone else perform my dental work.  He is exceptionally careful and expert in his work and has handled several very challenging problems for me over time with great results.  Beyond that, he is a very kind and congenial person, so visiting him in his office is always a pleasure.  I would add that his staff is very professional and proficient in their work

Rob L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not a yelper but Dr. Zelby deserves this glowing recommendation. I’m in town on business for 2 months, and have had a hole in my tooth for about a year. 2 colleagues of mine also had tooth issues during our stay and magically found their way to Dr. Zelby and of course pushed his services onto me, for which I am very thankful. Dr. Zelby and his staff (Susan & Sandra) are amazing in every sense of the word. Compassionate, thorough, funny, just all around incredible. It sincerely felt as if I was a regular patient of theirs, not just some clown off the street. They took incredible care of me, I’m sad that his office isn’t located in LA cause I would 100% be more inclined to see the dentist more. I said it a million times there, and I’m going to say a million more times, Dr. Zelby, Susan, and Sandra thank you thank you thank you thank you!!! You are the best team I’ve every encountered and feel very lucky that I found my way to you. All the best!!! Rob

3 years ago I had a front tooth cap that had broken off at the gym line and had been told by other doctors that I needed extensive surgery to remove the root of the broken tooth (which had already had a root canal many years prior when they installed the cap) and bone grafting in order to get an implant. I did not think all of the surgery and grafting should be required since I already had a socket where the old root had been. I was told that it could be upward of 4 months before I could get an implant and I had a vacation planned in 2 months and did not want to be wearing a flipper tooth on my trip. After researching Dr. Zelby and his experience with aesthetic dentistry, I figured he would be the one to help me, if anyone could. I couldn’t have been more right. Dr. Zelby, without prompting him with my theory, came right out with the same conclusion – why would I need a graft when I already had tooth in the socket. He and I met impromptu with the Oral Surgeon, Dr. Bankston, on the day of my exam and we all agreed it could be done and I could have a temporary implant on the day of the surgery, which would leave me 3 weeks until my vacation as long as I exercised great care with it. After my return, I’d be fitted with the permanent implant. He and Dr. Bankston pulled it off like magicians. I had a nice front tooth in time for my vacation. Upon returning, I received a very nice looking implant that looked very natural. The coor match was very good and no one can tell that it’s not my natural tooth. I have been going to him ever since for cleanings and other dental work, including to facings to close up gaps in my smile. The care I’ve received had been exemplary and I am very pleased with Dr. Zelby’s work. He is well worth the visit and the money. I now get complimented on my smile all the time, which is quite a departure from the days when I had gaps and crown that was poorly matched before it broke.

If you are deathly afraid of going to the dentist, than Dr.Zelby is the right guy for you.  I had not gone to the dentist in seven years and finally got the courage to make the move.  I knew that I needed to have a lot of work done and yes, as it turned out I did.  I even got two other opinions after getting the diagnosis from Dr. Zelby.  Both of the other dentists agreed with what he had said and said that his prices were reasonable not the least expensive.  Trust me, when it comes to a dentist, you do not want the least expensive, you want the dentist with the most up to date equipment.  Neither Dr. Zelby or his staff tries to sell you anything and are really looking out for your well being.  They could not be more professional or nicer.  I could not ask for a better dentist and will recommend him to all my friends and family.

Dr. Zelby and his staff are wonderful. He really loves what he does and I noticed this from the beginning,my first visit was much more than expected. I am looking forward to a continued relationship with Dr. Zelby as well as his staff that will improve my overall dental health. Would like to add that the hygienist (Terie) was wonderful.

10 STARS! Above and beyond my expectations! This is the BEST dentist office in Atlanta! I needed some new crowns because mine were aging. I went to see Dr. Zelby at the Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, and what a great decision that was! The color match was perfect, and he made me have a brighter smile. In fact, I looked at myself in the mirror all the way home! The office is bright and cheerful, as is his staff! They make you feel comfortable and are very informative. His state of the art equipment makes the process quick and easy. I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking excellent dental care!

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I’d highly recommend checking them out if you’re looking for a new dentist. They’re friendly and efficient and they really do know what they’re doing there.

Lisa D. from Northvale, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zelby and his team were able to Reconstruct my 92 year olds mother dentures after an unethical implant so called specialist destroyed her mouth With compassion caring and untold hours he was able to craft her completely new denture that allowed her to swallow speak and eat which she could not do before. There are no words for the gratitude we feel towards Dr Zelby and his team

MD. W. from Dublin, GA (Source: Yelp)


The is the uber spa of dental offices!!! Susan was very complimentary & patience… She offered directions, due to my GPS failing me miserably… But once I arrived to the office I felt so relaxed!!! The view in the waiting area is amazing & therapeutic… Dr. Zelby and his staff are amazing!!! I’ve never been made to feel so comfortable ever… They offer water or juice, and even a blanket!!! The view from the room I was in was also spectacular… The bathroom was clean & designed nicely! Dr. Zelby provide in-depth information related to TMJ & I felt confident about his recommendations… I look forward to coming back in order to get fitted for the night guard!!! I would totally recommend this office, especially if you live or work in the area… The customer service is out of this world!!

Dr. Zelby is a kind,intelligent, and patient person. He came in and listened to what i had requested to have done and accurately described to me what was needed next. The office is very tidy and the staff are exceptionally polite. This definitely was a very good experience and I’ve already recommended him to a few friends. If you are in the surrounding areas, i can say you will be pleased with the service. Considering to setup regular cleaning appointments in future 🙂 . P.S. – The view outside from the main waiting room and all together is wonderful !

Kiana M. from Westside / Home Park, Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I looooove coming here. Before this office I’ve had terrible dental experiences but here I get top of the line service. My insurance covers a lot therefore it’s not too pricey for me (but either way maintaining dental hygiene can get expensive if you don’t stay on top of it). Terie was my specialist and she was absolutely great. I’ve been going here a few years, referred people (and they do offer a great referral fee) and gotten cavity fillings, deep cleanings, and more. I highly recommend them. They’re gentle and thorough with their work.

Tanya S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Zelby for the first time today. I was shocked to find there was no wait. I’m use to going to a dentist and waiting at least 15 mins before seeing the doctor. The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Dr. Zelby was wonderful. He sat down and talked to me. I didn’t feel rushed. I would definitely recommend this office.

Chloe M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Zelby since I was in elementary school (around 15 years) and have never had a bad experience. His staff have IMPECCABLE skills and are extremely accommodating to my obnoxiously sensitive gums/teeth. Everyone here is very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend going here regardless, but especially if you have had negative experiences with dentists in the past.

Robert H. from Marietta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Beyond belief that I am the first to review Dr Zelby. David is the most amazing, talented, caring gentle and kindest dentist I have ever dealt with in my life. I was very VERY hesitant to go and see any dentist. Alas I knew I had to. A friend referred me to David, Still not wanting to go, I knew I had too. Believe me, Drills, Needles and any other utensils that are used in the medical field give me the hee bees. This Gentleman is without doubt a credit to his profession. Then add to this the wonderful and TRULY caring staff. From the moment you walk in to leaving If I had 10 Thumbs they would be all up along with my toes!! Enough said..

Jill S. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting Atlanta when my jaw locked. Dr. Zelby was highly recommended to me, and he was able to fit me in. I have been dealing with TMJ for years, and every dentist I’ve seen does not know how to address it. Dr. Zelby knew exactly what to do and manipulated my jaw to put it back in place. He also worked with me on a long-term solution. I was very impressed with Dr. Zelby’s knowledge. He took his time and made sure I left happy. Dr. Zelby also has the best staff in town. They treated me well from the minute I arrived. Thank you to Dr. Zelby and his entire staff!

Ive always hated the dentist in the past, but Dr Zelby and his staff go out of their way to assure I’m comfortable and have a good experience every time. I recently had an abscess tooth that needed to be pulled while on vacation. I waited a week in pain until I got home because I wont go to any other dentist besides Dr Zelby. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed, and had the tooth out in 10min with no pain at all. I would recommend his office to anyone!

Gary Sapp (Source: Google)


I found the dental visit exceptionally pleasant. This is unusual for a dental office. The hygienist that cleaned my teeth was thorough and gentle. AThis is important for me since I have sensivity in my teeth. Dr. Zelby is an excellent dentist and I new that fro a prior but long ago visit. He was strongly recommended to me by another dentist who lives in my condo building.

Maureen C. from Smyrna, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zelby is an expert at TMJ and dentistry.  My otolargngology recommended I see Dr. Zelby for my Temporomandibular Joint dysfunction.  He fixed a device for me and I’ve stayed with him since.  He did 6 crowns on my front teeth, which look extremely natural.  Oh yeah, he has a great sense of humor, which makes the office visits 100% enjoyable.

Jennifer J. from Alpharetta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Zelbys office to get my four front crowns replaced. I had been to 3 supposedly over qualified dentist in a row only to of been totally disappointed not to mention I just felt like all they cared about was the money instead of really wanting to help me. It literally was one problem after the next and not one of them cared enough about me and my smile to get things right When I met Dr. Zelby I was very impressed with him from the get go, because  of how he actually listened to my story of what I had been through. I was reassured that what I was asking for was not  impossible nor would I be left unhappy. He is kind and loves what he does along with the fact he is a true artist!!  I believe to be the best at cosmetic dentistry you must have natural artistic ability along with a great ceramist who would need to share the same traits which he certainly does. I am so HAPPY with my new crowns !!  They look amazingly natural and for the first time in years I’ve got no pain in between the new implant crown and the front tooth.  He not only made them comfortable but they just look amazing and I’m beside myself so happy that I can’t quit smiling !!!! My situation took a lot of thought and time . I truly appreciate Dr Zelby and his ceramist along with the kindest staff that were patient, organized , and knowledgeable.  It takes a very special team to achieve the results I got and I’m beyond grateful!!!!!!!

Les S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


My appointment was for a routine cleaning, but I was due for annual x-rays and the staff at Dr. Zelby’s office made sure we timed them to take maximum advantage of my dental insurance annual allowances. The equipment at AIDA is continually updated to state-of-the-industry, and the service is always professional and friendly. Megan is a keeper. Highly recommend!

Khris (Source: Google)


Every time I’ve gone into this office, I have been greeted by his friendly and professional staff. The office is very clean and with great views, may I add. Dr. Zelby got straight to the point with the issues I had going on with my teeth and gave me options on how to rectify said issues. Even though he is out of network (does not take my insurance), I still go to him. Customer service and expertise is everything for me. I hate going to the dentist, but he and his staff makes it easier.

Kyrsten Miles (Source: Google)


Dr. Zelby was great!! He fixed my tooth exactly how I wanted. He was very fast , patient, and amazing. I had a minor chip and he was able to fill it without replacing the whole tooth. The staff is also awesome. Shout out to Susanne! She was very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to the insurance and financial side. I will recommend and come back. Everyone was kind and flexible. Thank you for fitting me in.

Tanna J. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I HATE GOING TO THE DENTIST…or at least I did. In the past going to the dentist has unfortunately, been that thing I did when I was either forced to by the military during our semi annual check-ups or force by excruciating pain cause by a tooth. I believed that “bed-side manners” was a course that Dentist got to skip in Dental school. They have always made me feel uncomfortable and delivered the news of a cavity as if it was the most shameful consequence of self neglect any human could subject themselves to. BUT TODAY WAS DIFFERENT!!! First let me start by saying Beth and Susan over the phone and in person were super professional and friendly and Beth did everything possible to accommodate my needs and time constraints. She also made sure that I maximized my benefits and understood my out of pocket cost. The dental assistant and dental hygienist #SUPERAWESOME. My teeth feel like I took them out and clean them in the dishwasher on UTLRA. But above all, Dr. Zelbly, made me feel comfortable, relax, and even entertained by his “Long Island humor”. He assured me along the way that I had nothing to worry about because he was good at what he does. He instilled confidence so that I would have no reason to doubt it. This was an awesome experience. He raised my standards to 5 Star Standards and delivered!!!! #IFOUNDMYDENTIST

Mark S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zelby is a caring dentist at the top of his game. After many years under his care I have only great things to say. If you are nervous about seeing a dentist again, or if you’ve neglected your smile, Zelby is your man. The entire operation from the staff, to the modern equipment, to the cutting edge dental technology is truly awesome. Whether you’re getting your teeth cleaned, or you need an advanced dental procedure, Dr. Zelby will make sure you are satisfied with the results. I can’t recommend this dentist enough.  (Side note… I am SUPER afraid of the dentist, and have always hated it, but this dental practice has always made me feel relaxed)

Celeste S. from Marietta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I recently saw Dr. Zelby’s office for an emergency visit. I broke a tooth during lunch and was frantic to find an office that could see me immediately. After finding Dr. Zelby online I called his office and was happy to find out that he would be willing to work me in on such short notice. The front office staff was very polite and went over my insurance information as well as treatment cost prior to having any work done. Dr. Zelby and the assistants explained my treatment very well and I was confident that this was the best option for me. I left the office with my tooth repaired and pain free!! I’m so grateful to Dr. Zelby and his staff and I look forward to coming back to this office for all my dental needs.

Stephanie M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Recently I moved from Michigan to Atlanta and had the daunting task of  finding a new dentist. I had been with the same dentist for 35 years and the thought of trusting someone knew was terrifying. All my fears were laid to rest the second I met Dr. Zelby. During my first visit, Dr. Zelby actually sat down and took the time to get to know me. He listened to and address my concerns & fears and provided me with options.  I left his office feeling like I was part of his family, not a patient. The staff including the front office, the dental hygienist and Dr. Zelby’s assistants were and still are equally  welcoming and accommodating. Dr. Zelby has been my dentist for close to two years now and can honestly say I love my dentist.

I found Dr. Zelbys office on Google and I must say that coming here has honestly changed my life. When i first came to Dr.Zelby i had little to no money and my dentures were completely broken in half. Dr Zelby worked with me and gave me a major discount on my old pair and he helped me fix them temporarily while I came up with the money to get some new ones needless to say he made me some brand new dentures and they are absolutely gorgeous. Eveyone in this office was extremely patient and compassionate to my every needs. Now I have the Hollywood smile I always wanted and the confidence to match. Dr.Zelby, Zack, Sandra, and Ashley are God sent and I couldnt be happier with my new smile . Thanks to this office for showing me the utmost love and helping me. I am forever grateful having found this place. THANKYOU SO MUCH.

I absolutely love this practice. From my initial call the receptionist was very informative, pleasant and patient. They streamlined the first time patients process and got me in to see Dr. Zelby very quickly and his personality, professionalism and expertise was the icing on the cake. These guys put a smile on my face before I even sat down…

Jonathan S. from Hiram, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zelby is extremely professional and didn’t recommend a procedure that may be more expensive just to make a buck but truly what benefited me. I’m very thankful that I sought a second opinion after the dentist I primarily visit left me with very few options other than an evasive and expensive procedure I didn’t need.

Sabrina H. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I am a person that has had a history with not good dentist. After having bad dental work, I was hesitate to go back to the dentist after having my bad experiences until I met Dr. Zelby. He has changed my outlook on having dental work done. He made it painless and effortless while making my teeth look and feel good again. I came to this office after completely cracking my front #11 tooth, I sought to get an experienced prosthodontist to evaluate this tooth for restoration. I went to AIDA to get a a second opinion. I found the staff very nice and pleasant, with a beautiful office, that was very well decorated, maintained and clean. At my visit, I was seen promptly without much wait. During my initially consultation, it was clear that Dr. Zelby was very knowledgeable and experienced in knowing his way around aesthetics and teeth restoration. I appreciated the time Dr.Zelby took looking at the big picture of what was going on with my broken tooth and not coming up with a cookie cutter fix for my unconventional break. I decided to move forward with Dr. Zelby’s recommendations. On the day of my procedure the staff was excellent. My procedure was long but went off without a hitch and felt very little to no pain during the process. When I left, I had my root canal, rebuilt tooth and fitted with a temporary crown that looks PERFECT! I was glad to have my smile back without seeing the broken tooth. Dr. Zelby showed such compassion and professionalism. He called me the night of the procedure to see how I was doing. The staff gave me his cell number to call if any thing came up. They promptly got me back in to see the Dr. when I had some bite adjustment needed. I went in for a follow-up today and everything is healing very nicely with tooth. I look forward to getting my permanent crown in a few weeks. After an initial awkward moment in office with another dentist, Dr. Zelby made things right. I am so glad he showed me this side of him and how much he cares for his patients and what goes on in his office. Overall, I am extremely happy that I had my dental work done by Dr. Zelby. He has been great through my entire treatment and he really cares about his work and his patients. I strongly recommend Dr. Zelby and AIDA for your dental care. Top Notch!

I just went for my first cleaning with Dr. Zelby.  I just got braces, so I was a little nervous about how things would go.  First of all, the office is easy to find, parking is free, and the office is spectacularly beautiful.  The front desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and I was seen promptly at my appointment time.  I had the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had, and they even offered to contact my orthodontist for recent x-rays to avoid having to do them again. I appreciated this, from a reduction in radiation exposure, and also from the standpoint of a reduction in unnecessary expenditures.  I never got the sense that they were trying to upsell me on something.  The dental hygienist was extremely knowledgeable, did a thorough screening, including for oral cancer, and astutely noticed a slightly swollen lymph node related to a recent bacterial illness.  They used an ultrasonic tool instead of the old-fashioned metal scraper to clear the tartar off my teeth, and then finished up with a sort of sandblasting with baking soda which was painless.  Dr. Zelby believes that he is the best dentist in Atlanta. I believe he’s right.

David and his staff are among the most friendly, thoughtful and competent I’ve experienced in over sixty years of dental work. Cleaning is thorough. David is an artist; the more complicated the issue (and I’ve had more than a few), the the more distinctively better he is. I’ve been going to him for 20 years. I travel over 100 miles now to do my 1/2-yearly appointments with him. Worth every mile and every penny.

Ayn M. from Marietta, GA (Source: Yelp)


This place has the best dentist in Atlanta, hands down. I’m a diabetic and in nursing, so I’m veeeery picky about who works on my mouth. Dr. Zelby and co are accommodating (they once saw me at 7:30 AM) caring (after a pretty rough root canal, they called me at home on a Friday night to see if I was okay or if they needed to call in a pain prescription to a 24 hr pharmacy) and on occasion, miracle workers (due to several issues, my husband had to have several teeth removed; after Dr. Zelby was done, you would never know he’d lost any.) They are very flexible with payment (they also worked out a payment plan when my husband lost his job.) Call them!
