Everyone dreads going to the dentist but I had a very enjoyable time at BayView. The dental assistants did a great job on my cleaning in a timely manner, the dentist came in and checked randomly to make sure everything was going well and the views from the entire office are spectacular. Overall, great customer service and atmosphere with the staff and scenic views.

Bayview Dental is awesome! Karissa, the dental hygienist is very friendly and thorough in dental advice conversations and cleanings. The new male receptionist at the front desk is very friendly and greeted me as soon as I walked in. They have a water cooler in the waiting room and it is very modern. I love dentists like this that specialize in cosmetic dentistry because I feel like they are up to date with dental equipment and it makes me feel like they are up with the times and modern. The dental assistants are all amazing as well and encouraging during tough procedures. I love this dentist office! Thank you for all the amazing visits and the clean, modern office.

Wow, Dr. Canizares and her team took AMAZING care of me! I found Bayview when I needed some emergency dental work and they’ve since made me a lifelong patient. As someone who was terrified to go back to the dentist from previous history, I couldn’t be more excited to finally work on getting the smile I’ve always wanted. From Chris at the front desk working with my schedule to the amazing Dental Assistants and fabulous Dr. Canizares – the entire experience was perfect. If you want an amazing smile with great pricing and care you HAVE to go see Dr. Canizares at Bayview Dental! Plus, you can’t beat the view! 🙂

Dr. Carina Canizares and Yoclyn at Bayview Dental Associates are amazing! Their caring and professionalism were evident from my very first phone call and appointment. Yoclyn answered the phone when I called with a dental emergency just before Christmas. She heard the desperation in my voice and kindly scheduled an appointment for me. Yoclyn’s sweet, cheerful demeanor is always appreciated. In addition, her understanding and reassurance have been a great comfort during subsequent visits. Dr. Canizares is straightforward and kind. I have complete confidence in her abilities and trust her recommendations. I’ve finally found a top-notch dentist and dental practice in St. Petersburg!

After my dentist retired several years ago, I went to several dentists before I found Dr.C about 18 months ago. She is an excellent dentist and the practice is really well run. The staff I met on day one is all still there as of today. They are always busy. If your appt is at 8:00am you’re in the chair by 8:10. The hygienist is a pro. Dr C. did crown work on me; very skilled.

Dr. Canizares’ entire office is super professional! Dr. C and her hygienists are knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. I am a patient, along with my two teenagers and we always feel very comfortable during our dental visits. At previous dentists, I have felt pressured to get certain treatments, but here I feel like the staff is very transparent and really just looking out for our dental health. The admin staff is helpful and super efficient. Lastly, you can’t beat the view from the dental chair. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Canizares and her staff

Friendly, caring staff!  My family has been coming here for a year now since current Dentist took over the practice.  The receptionists, Dentist and hygienists are friendly and accommodating.  I have sensitive teeth, both of my daughters have braces and they treat us with care and compassion.  They also take our insurance.  I hope to be coming here for a long time.

Who knew that visiting the dentist office could be pleasant and also…fun?! Not this guy, but I am happy to say that I now look forward to visiting the team at BayView Dental! Dr. Canizares is a miracle worker and the entire team is extremely welcoming and personable. They happen to have the best music station streaming as well! Two thumbs way up!

As a new patient who recently moved to St Pete, I was greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff and Dr Canizardes was very professional and caring. I’m very pleased and actually referring my wife to this practice as well. Their offices are super clean and the view from their office overlooking the new pier is spectacular. Great job!

Vicci M. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


First off no one likes going to the dentist but I can’t be more thankful for finding Dr. Carina Canizares. The entire team at her office is kind, helpful and do beautiful work. I’ve been there for about 8 visits so far and working on my care plan to restore my teeth and feel cared for each time. This is the first dentist I’ve been to in my 45 years that I feel actually takes time and checks in to make sure I’m clear as to what is happening. If they have an opening, they call me, if they can take me early, they call me. In a world that sometimes feels like there is the lost art of patient care and customer service, their whole team has mastered the one on one attention everyone wishes to have.

Great experience. Dr. Canizares was efficient and scientific. She did a thorough exam and told me her findings and treatment plan. Karissa (hygienist) was somehow the only hygienist EVER to tell me to raise my hand if Im uncomfortable or just need to take a break. She also noted a sensitive spot and subsequently always warned me when she would return, so I didn’t have to lie in terror waiting for a surprise touch on the area. Happy to have found this practice!

Brittany G. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I had a problem In the past with dentists taking advantage of me and finding things wrong to take my money. BayView dental was honest and even told me nothing was wrong with my teeth and these dentists were charging me for things I didn’t need. Everyone in the office is very kind and I would recommend BayView to anyone I know. Feels good to find a dental office that is not trying to put you in debt.

Everyone, if you have not heard of or tried Bayview Dental you are missing out on fantastic dental care for your teeth and gums. Not only are they professional and knowledgeable but they are so genuinely caring from the dentist and hygienist to the entire office staff. I highly recommend Bayview Dental

Ashley W. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I grew up with a family in dentistry, so when I moved to Florida, I thought high quality service/my standards wouldn’t be met. Yet, I found Carina Canizares, DMD at BayView Dental in downtown St. Petersburg and I’m thrilled. She has provided excellent care, service, kindness, and followups. The office staff has been excellent checking with my insurance and ease of calling and making appointments. It also doesn’t hurt that this dental office has a beautiful view of the bay. Thank you!

Nick Giuliano (Source: Google)


Great dental experience! Dr. Canizares and her staff were courteous and professional. And the comprehensive exam was the most thorough I have ever received. Dr. Canizares took time to explain exactly what was going on in my mouth even filled a small cavity immediately after my scheduled cleaning. Pain free and super easy!!!! Will definitely be back!!

Toni L Taylor (Source: Google)


What, Great Customer Service” is my first impression. From setting my new patient appt with a timely call back to completing my New Patient Info Online (from my phone). I was texted my Appt details. My Initial visit and 1st treatment plan went Well. Lastly, the Bay View from this 14th floor office is Beautiful. This Tech Savvy Dental Office Ranks with Five Stars, Thank You All for Your Good Care of Me and the Good Vibes.

Sherry R. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


If you’re looking for a new dentist, or aren’t sure you like your current one, here is the place you want to go! Dr. Canizares is awesome. She is always happy to answer any questions I have, and has a great team she works with. From the receptionist, to the back office, dental assistants (Yocelyn was great), and dental hygienist (Karissa), I always feel like I am important and welcomed. They are always on time…I’ve never had to sit and wait! The view of the bay is amazing, and definitely helps to make me feel more relaxed. Way better than just sitting in a windowless room. While nobody likes to go to the dentist, at least I don’t dread it as much as I have in the past.

Ron L. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I went to BayView Dental because it was in the same place as my former dentist. In fact, I thought it was my former dentist until I got there. The cleaning I got was quite good, but 11 months later, I got billed for some x-rays that were not covered under insurance. Who knew!?! They worked it out with me in a prompt and professional manner. That says a lot about how they run their shop. There are plenty of good dentists in the area and they all say they put their customers first. BayView is one that actually does.

Everyone was very friendly. They made me feel comfortable and cared about me. They were also professional and did an excellent job, taking care of my teeth. The best dental care that I have ever had. I recommend others to BayView Dental.

Nobody likes going to the dentist. I have to say that I really don’t mind… My hygienist is so great! I have sensitive gums but she never hurts me & I get a thorough cleaning. The dentist is also very thorough and gentle. I highly recommend BayView Dental. The entire staff is professional and welcoming!

The staff at BayView Dental were extremely welcoming as I entered the office. The receptionist was very prompt and efficient in her performance. The assistant was very gentle and understood every ounce of my anxieties and made sure that I felt comfortable the entire time. The dentist went above and beyond explaining my treatment plan and offered me great guidance. This experience was the best experience at a dentist I have ever been to. I would recommend this office for your dental needs.

Bay View Dental and their wonderful staff are the best team I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. Friendly, attentive, kind, and easy to be friends with. They will make you smile and make your smile look better while you’re at it. The view from your dental chair is absolutely the best, it overlooks the pier and the Tampa Bay.

Paulie F. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Recently went to Bayview dental , and I’m sure glad. I did they took me on short notice ..they were professional and very accommodating from start to finish come time to getting my tooth pulled it was quick and with minimal pain I was in major pain days before that and the minute I stepped in the door I started to feel better ..thanks again Bayview dental -Paulie Favara

Leah L. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I am very afraid of going to the dentist but everyone in that office went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.  Dr. Alviani was kind and gentle. He explained everything he was doing and was very patient with me if I needed a break during my treatment.  The assistants even held my hand when I needed to get shots because they knew i was afraid of needles. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone in search of a dentist.

This is one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. They were very fast in verifying my insurance and getting me an appointment as quickly as possible. Dr. Carina was very kind and personable and did a few fillings on me. I did not feel a thing! I would highly recommend this office for any of your dental needs!

This place is a night/day experience from my former dentist. The entire staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. The staff and dentist office is organized and efficient. The dental assistant made me feel welcomed and was extremely patient. The dentist was knowledgeable, kind, and provided a wealth of information. The entire dental planning was very collaborative. It is nice to be viewed and treated like a person. I would recommend this to anyone. The location is terrific and the view from the office through the windows is an added bonus. Thank you guys for restoring my faith in dentists.

Jessica S. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I moved here from Boston so I needed a dentist close by to my apartment and this is a great location in DTSP. I was able to bike here in 5 mins. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. As a new patient, you have to make 2 separate appointments – first one is an exam and X-ray and then you have to come back for the actual cleaning. I wasn’t aware of this because it was never communicated to me so that was the only thing I was a bit surprised by since I’ve never heard of any other facility doing this. Regardless, it is a great place to get my teeth cleaned and the location is so convenient.

Sherry R. from Downtown St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay, FL (Source: Yelp)


While eating a milk dud I pulled out a crown. I don’t currently have a dentist, and found BayView through my insurance. They were able to see me in two days, and had no trouble getting me rescheduled. They took me in exactly on time. To top it off, I really couldn’t fee when Dr. Canizares gave me the Novocaine shots. Gabby did a great job of making me feel comfortable, letting me know where we were with timing, and answering all of my questions. While not many (any?) people like going to the dentist, I am almost looking forward to my return visit.

Donna Lester Taylor (Source: Facebook)


The staff was friendly and helpful. They doctor was thorough and discussed what she was doing every step of the visit. I appreciate how efficient and nice everyone was, and the finances were clearly explained and approved before proceeding. I am very happy with this dentist and the entire office.

Ideal dentist experience. Dr. Canizares and her staff were very welcoming, friendly, and thorough. They took the time to get to know me and make sure I felt comfortable. I never felt like they were pressuring me to buy any devices or toothbrushes like a lot of other dentists. The view from the appointment chair was pretty awesome, as well. Their office looks out over the bay in downtown St Pete. I’ve definitely found my new dentist in the area.

The visit to this dental office was the best experience I’ve ever had; this place is awesome. From the time I got there interacting with staff was great. Gabriella “Gabby” is a true treasure to the office, sweet, caring and most of all, a staunch professional who does a great job. Dr. Carina Canizares was amazing and is truly passionate about the care and attention given to her patients. Karissa the hygienist was phenomenal, thorough and gentle, she truly is an expert in her craft. This office is just amazing, I didn’t realize that the level of professional dentistry care and service that I received along with the overall office ambiance I’ve experienced in the past at other places was sub-par until my visit to this office. I can’t stop raving about the quality of service and the great people that work in this office. If you want to experience dental service that’s in another stratosphere pick this office.
