I have had several dentist in DE and was not impressed with the bed side manner. This is the best place they have a good bedside manner. Everyone that works in there are friendly and helpful. Dr. Patel is my favorite very polite and makes sure you are not in pain. I would not choose another dentist for my family and I we have been going there for several years now!! With the Covid going on they ensure everyone is safe. All staff are very friendly and always smiling. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in DE and I have recommended them in the past.

Great place to go. Very clean from the parking lot to the dental chair. ALL staff were VERY friendly from the check in, radiology, dental hygienists, doctors, and check out. Highly recommend this practice. I cannot give them enough stars. I personally like going to the dentist so this place was AWESOME. Anyone of any age that has a fear of the dentist I implore you to go to American Dental Care and ALL your dental fears will go away. I’m already looking forward to my next appointment.

Another fantastic experience at the dentist! Yes! That’s the truth about American Dental. Dr. Patel and his staff make this necessary medical attention as comfortable and welcoming as possible. Their professionalism and concern for their patients is second to none. I highly recommend American Dental, and I love the fish tanks!

Love American Dental care. The staff is so knowledgeable and caring. Even going as far as having someone hold my hand when I was a little freaked about the numbing part of a procedure. They are the best. I came in for a general cleaning yesterday They went above and beyond, recommending treatments I need and even calling other offices for me to be sure that I get in. For a girl who hasn’t been to the dentist since childhood, I couldn’t have picked a better place

Adrienna W. from Allentown, PA (Source: Yelp)


Been here a few times and they get you in quickly for a cleaning although seeing a dentist can take a little longer. The staff is all very nice, with the exception of one dentist who apparently just left. Other than that, they are better for older children and adult dental needs. Took my younger kids there (8) and she still needs to see an orthodontist (or someone else), because the dentist she saw was not qualified to handle pediatric teeth.

Ziondra R. from Felton, DE (Source: Yelp)


This office is the best dental office EVER. I seriously have ZERO complaints. I’ve been coming here for over 2 years and I was nervous coming from another office that was pretty hard to compete with. Man was I surprised , the staff are awesome as soon as you come in. I am greeted and checked in with ease. The wait time for your appointment is minimal. You can tell that the employees take pride in their careers. My favorite staff is Stephanie Sweet. I hope they give her a raise , as she is always consistent with providing top notch care with a smile that is genuine.  If you’re looking for a dental office look no further, just call and make sure they take your insurance 🙂

American Dental Care is great. I love that I never have to wait to long and always go right back for when my appointment is scheduled. The staff is always friendly. My hygienist is professional, efficient, and leaves my teeth nice and clean! I love the fact that she always makes sure I am comfortable and pain free.

I live in Lewes,and was able to get an appointment today,as there apparantly was a cancellation. I cancelled appt with the Dentist I had here in lewes as insurance does not cover and American Dental does. Kelly was the hygenist that worked with me and she was awesome! Very friendly and knowledeable! She answered all my questions and let me know what to expect. Highly recommend!

This was my first time at American Dental Care. The waiting room was clean and in compliance with Covid19 regulations. The front desk technician was extremely caring, knowledgeable and friendly. The dental hygienist/servicing dentist demonstrated knowledge and utmost professionalism. I definitely choose this office for all of my future dental needs.

This was my first time at American Dental and Kelli who was the dental hygienist did an excellent job with me. I had needed more than a basic cleaning that day and she jumped right in, explaining everything she was going to do, explained as she was working and even worked out a very doable long term action plan for my teeth and gums. Kelli really took the time to listen to me as well as being very thorough at her job, and she really likes what she does too! The doctor came in and we discussed some options for down the road and he was great too, but Kelli really stood out!

On Christmas Day at Christmas dinner, one of the crowns on a front tooth fell off!! Fortunately I had a scheduled appointment with Dr. Patel on the following Tuesday afternoon to discuss the crown which felt loose. When Dr. Patel examined the tooth he determined a crown was no longer an option for the tooth. Dr. Patel discussed the options with me and after examining surrounding teeth, fully explained the options available. After deciding the route to take, Dr. Patel worked with the administrative staff to secure an appointment for me the next morning to begin repairs. This required moving other patients as the repairs would take an entire morning, two members of the dental team, and lab staff! I was given an appointment for the following morning and by 1 p.m. all repairs had been made and the foundation created for permanent repairs. The entire staff, administrative and dental, are great to work with and do everything to accommodate patients and return them to normal. And even in an era of mask wearing, it still is a bit uneasy to be missing your front tooth at 61 years old!!!

I have been coming to American Dental for quite a few years now. I am always given excellent care. I get my teeth cleaned every 6 months, and my teeth remain in excellent condition for a 74 year old. The dentist checks my teeth, and schedules any appointments I need if filling is needed. I seldom get cavities any more, because of the excellent care I receive.

American Dental made me feel at ease the whole visit I felt like they truly cared for my well being and the overall health of my teeth. They walked me through everything gave a list of options to choose from and prices for each option. They made me feel like more than just a person sitting in the chair, for that I highly recommend them to everyone!!!

I arrived a little late but I called ahead. I was able to get my xrays/hygiene/fluoride treatment and get seen by the Dentist in under one hour.American Dental has professionals that respect my time and answered my questions about my oral health. Superb place and will continue to do business with this group!

I had a great experience at American Dental Care during my recent visit on 7/6/2020. The office staff, dental hygienist, and the dentist who evaluated my dental concerns, were all professional and caring. The dentist ably diagnosed my dental problem and referred me for the appropriate level of care needed to accurately address my treatment needs. I highly recommend American Dental Care to anyone seeking excellent dental care.

The staff that I had contact with were all very professional and friendly. This was my first visit and it was like visiting family. The facilities are beautiful and even have tropical fish tanks so you have something to watch while you are waiting to be seen. I would highly recommend American Dental Care! Had another appointment yesterday and everything I said about American Dental Care before is still true. Going to the Dentist isn’t one of the things I generally look forward to but the people at American Dental make my visit very pleasant. Still highly recommend them!!!

Great job all around. The reception area is inviting and the fish tank is a great touch. The staff are all friendly and helpful and answer any questions I have without me feeling like I am bothering them. Checkout was also a breeze. If I had to give any constructive criticism it would be that my appointment was for 4:15 and they did not call me back until 4:25. I guess being later in the day this could be expected so I may try for early morning appointments from now on. Overall 5 stars for a well run business and I will continue to come back.

Just the atmosphere and employees will help you decide. Super friendly. I could not find one employee unhappy about their job. Ease of process and care. Only con would be pricing. Be prepared to spend. Just overwhelming to find a dentist welcoming from the door. If I could do 6 stars I would. They make sure it’s right the first time. No rush. I love it

I had to change dental insurances due to a change with Tricare. It was tough finding a dental practice that accepted the new dental insurance. However,  I came across American Dental and I was pleasantly surprised. The practice is very modern and aesthetically pleasing.  I love the calm atmosphere and the realistic approach they dental team uses in their approach to.addressing my dental concerns.  Every visit I have had at this practice was pleasurable and I would recommend this dental practice. If you are looking for practice that is above the rest American Dental is it.

Derek W. from Dover, DE (Source: Yelp)


First and foremost I must say I had a pleasurable visit from beginning to end. From the receptionist to the onsite doctor. Dexter was very courteous as he took X-rays. I can’t for the world of me remember the dentist name (light skinned young woman from NY, name starts with a D ugh memory fades as you get older) but she was gentle and thorough at same time. The doctor was also very courteous as well. Very nice experience, nice office (love the 6 fish tanks with Nemo and Dory fish lol) I highly recommend even with the prices

Karen DiNolfi (Source: Google)


The dental hygienist, Stephanie, was great! The dental assistant, Dexter, was very informative and so friendly. When checking out, Izzy was a miracle worker in scheduling my much needed next appt.! The downside of the practice is, because they’re so good, it’s a busy office so don’t expect to get an appointment right away.

I had a dental emergency and they were the only place that would see me without having been an established patient. They saw me right away when I got there and made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable!! The staff was very helpful and I will definitely be going back as an “established” patient! Recommend to everyone!!

I am happy to share my dental care experiences with everyone as I have all my dental work done at American dental Care in Dover. There staff will handle all your dental needs with excellent care. I do not have any fear going there for any future dental appointments and recommend anyone to pay them a visit. Sincerely, Roberto Forgione.

Linda R. from Magnolia, DE (Source: Yelp)


American Dental Care has one of the finest practices in Dover.  They specialize in your needs and do not push other services that you may not need or want.  Each visit of mine has been both professional and thorough.  My hygienist goes out of the way to make me feel comfortable and does a really great job.  At one point I had a TMJ problem and Dr. Patel was immediately there to give me the best advise since I had to wait almost a month to see an oral surgeon.  A really Great Dental Practice with competent dentists and staff.

Theressa M. from Youngstown, OH (Source: Yelp)


The staff are very friendly and personable and always seem to exude care and concern. The wait times have all been minimum. I just wished Dr. Patel worked more days in the week so that my appointments are so spaced out. They have made my move and finding a dentist office in a new area a really pleasant experience.

Great office my regular dentist had kept cancelling my cleaning and appointment for a crown. Because of covid it’s been a year and a half since I’ve had a cleaning because of this. I was able to get an appointment right away. Stephanie was my hygienist and was wonderful. I booked to be with her again for my 6 month cleaning. The dentist was great. I have 3 very small fillings that need to be done that I had an idea exactly where they were. Very clean and professional office! Highly recommend!

Everyone was on top of their game & following the COVID protocols which was very impressive, but more comforting to me since I fall into a high-risk category & don’t like to venture out of our house too much if at all. Everyone I asked anything for, no matter how small, you could tell they had a smile on their smile even though they were wearing masks, & to ensure my comfort & protection. My dentist was (sorry I don’t remember her name) top-notch & I would no trouble have her do any future work.

I am 27 weeks pregnant and have only lived in Delaware a year. Due to COVID I’ve had no luck in finding a dentist accepting new patients. I recently started feeling strong pain from a chipped tooth and reach out to everyone I could for a visit & no one could help. I found American Dental, and although they don’t accept my insurance I raced to get their help. The same day I called they got me in within 2 hours. The doctor I saw immediately discussed the importance of the situation being my pregnancy. There was no judgement of my dental health, no bashing, and nothing more than empathy and concern in a thorough explanation. They referred me to an oral surgeon, who unfortunately, was backed up until Mid-March. They went as far as calling the surgeons and begging to get me in sooner to treat the issue. The surgeon got me in 4 hours later & performed the proper procedure to send me on my way. American Dental went above and beyond. I have never been so satisfied with a dental visit, which are my least favorite visits from childhood trauma. They made me feel so important & so welcomed, and made sure I received nothing less than the best and most proper care for my dental health and the health of my unborn baby since it would effect him also. I am so grateful for the polite and friendly team there & will recommend them forever. Thank you guys so much, you don’t understand how helpful you were that day!

Fantastic, I was a little scared – ok, terrified – because my last dentist, who was described by my friend as “brutal but efficient,” was exactly that, a nightmare. But here I felt they truly cared about the patient, and they took the time to explain what was going on and answer any questions I had in a non-condescending manner. And even with the attention to patient care and appearing to be quite busy there was minimal wait time, it was all very quick. Also felt very safe with the precautions they had in place during this time. Excellent practice.

No one ever truly “enjoys” going to the dentist, but the staff here really makes the experience so positive! It had been a while since I was in the office and needed a cleaning. Damaris was so great and friendly; she’s a total gem! Navigating things mid-pandemic is difficult for everyone, but the staff was so professional, kind, and effective in keeping everyone distanced and taken care of efficiently. Thank you all!

No More Excuses!!! This place is Amazing! They eliminated all of my excuses, one by one. I have not seen a dentist in “way too long”, for a variety of reasons. First, there is the general “discomfort” (PAIN) associated. They took the time to make sure I was properly “numbed” before beginning. Then, I was embarrassed to allow someone to see the condition of my mouth. They put my mind at ease, and assured me that I had nothing to be embarrassed about. Whatever your excuses, put them aside, and give this place a try!! You will be glad you did! They will put you back on the pathway to excellent oral health!! Thank you, American Dental Care!! -Dane

We are with American Dental Care for a couple of years now. Each and every visit is a nice experience. For all this years I have seen dentists handling challenging problems (with my own teeth), being extremely professional and helpful. Today we got our cleaning: hygienist was super nice and did her job just perfect.

Chelsea-rae f (Source: Google)


First off, they were incredibly helpful on the phone prior to my appointment. When i arrived for my appointment, I immediately noticed how attractive and clean it was. They took me in a bit early because i was early. I’m so used to having to wait *forever* in offices. I was so relieved!! The woman taking the additional xrays of my problem tooth was wonderful. I have a difficult and awkward bite , a bizarrely small jaw.. I’m just a pain LOL. She showed patience with me and was (needlessly) apologetic. She ensured I was comfortable and noticed the equipment wasn’t working. I’m 29 and require a pediatric xray sensor lmao she was super accommodating . One of the other staff members questioned her use of the childrens equipment (understandably so) but I thought it showed adaptability and quick thinking. Personalized care, if you will. The dentist himself was super quick. Some people don’t like that but I appreciated it tbh. He looked at the xray, recommended root canal. I said i wanted it pulled and he didnt argue which i love. though he made a good judgement call that they NOT pull it in office due to hooks and told me to have a nice day. Whoever the other woman was was also helpful and kind. I was frustrated about not having much of a resolution but she was empathetic and helpful. She encouraged me to save the tooth and made me feel better about the whole situation. Im sure whoever they referred me to is expensive as heck and i’ll likely have to put it off, but that’s not their fault. I just have no dental insurance lol. My review was long to show that the entire thing was positive, even though I didn’t get what I wanted. I didn’t feel rushed, belittled or awkward at all. Plus, the room was beautiful and the staff seem like “real” people. No way on the checking out process either, which sometimes occurs. All in all, a great experience. I’d go back. If I had insurance Id go regularly and im an hour away! Def recommend
