Dr Coope and his staff are great. A very friendly office staff and Dr Coope is by far the beast dentist I have ever been to. He is very cautious as to  not cause the patient any discomfort. I would continue to see them except they went out of network with my insurance company, so I have to pay for my treatments up front. Other than that I would encourage anyone looking to find a great dentist and above all an honest dentist to call Care First Dental

Staff is very helpful and respectful. After walking out of a dentist office 4 years ago, I haven’t worked up the nerve until now to be seen again. Very happy I chose dr. Coope and his team. You feel welcomed and comfortable and he will do whatever is best for you. I actually feel ok going to the dentist now.

Dr. Coope Takes time to explain everything. He never makes me feel like he’s in a hurry. And his method of giving novicane shots is top notch! I don’t feel discomfort when he administers the shot. The staff are also great!! I’ve been contributing to their dental business for years. We have a good rapport. I used to “Dread” going to the dentist. That fear has disappeared since going to the Care First Dental Team.

This will be my forever dentist. I discovered this office less than a year ago and will never ever go anywhere else. I am a worrier and go in for a visit for any concern/pain I may have. Dr. Coope always gives me the up most honest answer. He is patient, thorough, and truly cares about your concerns. He truly cares about you knowing about the health of your teeth and explains everything to you in great detail. I appreciate him so much and everyone in his office!! Everyone you meet here will treat you with delicate care and honesty that shines for miles. Thank you so much Care First Dental!!!

Dr. Coop is amazing because he cares! He cares about his patients comfort during a every procedure checking in throughout to make sure they’re comfortable and understand exactly what he’s doing. This is why I go to Care First Dental for the consistent personalize care. I wish everyone could have a Dentist like Dr. Coop!

Dr. Coope was very gentle and made sure that he kept me informed every step. The office atmosphere is welcoming. His staff genuinely kind and are always smiling. I wish I knew about his office years ago! If you’re looking for a great dentist, let this be your first and last stop! ~S.Sparks

My Husband and myself were recommended to go to Care First and so glad we decided to switch Dental Offices! Very Friendly Staff, always a smile when you walk in the door. Dr. Coope is very welcoming and answered all questions and makes sure you are taken care of before you leave! Very Highly Recommend their Practice!

My experience was awesome. I had been looking for a new dentist and I came across this dentist office. I was impressed with the reviews I had seen so I prayed about it and made an appointment. The staff was amazing answered all my questions and the dentist was patient, kind, explained everything. I will recommend to anyone who ask.

This was my first cleaning and Christina was so awesome.I’ve never felt so relaxed in a dentist chair. Then Dr Coupe came in to fix a bad cavity job done by a past dentist. He used a laser to remove the old filling and never had to numb me up. Never felt a thing. This entire staff is number one. Keep up the great work

Dr. Coope and Care First Dental Team are everything you could ask for when it comes to caring for your teeth. From routine cleaning to detail crown work; from the front desk to Dr. Coope there is the utmost courtesy and genuine compassion. There’s a bonus…the office doesn’t have that ‘dentist office smell’.

Dr. Coope & his team were sensitive to the fact that I have difficulty keeping my mouth open for long periods of time on my own. He used the bite block & gave me many breaks when he was filling my wisdom tooth. They also made sure I was adequately numbed. I have had a bad experience as a teenager at the dentist. I used to be very nervous when I went to the dentist. Now, I’m ok with having fillings or crowns. They really do care about their patients!

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and the excellent service of Dr. Coope and his team. From the friendly smiles when you walk through the door to the step by step process explained during a procedure by Dr. Coope, I know I am in good hands. It is obvious that Dr. Coope stays on top of the latest medical information and procedures. Melissa and Jessica are so caring and make you feel like family. I highly recommend Care First Dental Team.

Absolutely the best dentist that I’ve found in Dover! I had my first filling done since I was a child. Unlike other dentist’s who just stick you with needles, Dr. Coope takes the time to pre-numb the injection site and does not begin work until he is sure that the medicine is working properly. Dr. Coope was very patient and kept me updated during the procedure. Also, his support staff is second to none!

Second visit yesterday. Smooth sailing with a professional cast. All dentist offices should be exciting to go to like this one. This group is smiling from the time you enter until the time you leave. Very professional and caring. They take pride and care in the work they do. One big happy family. Thank you.

Dr. Coope is far and away the best dentist I have ever gone to. He is very, kind, thorough and gentle. His whole team is delightful and keep him moving and on time. I especially like the way they remind me about appointments. They must be used to dealing with seniors who are likely to forget. No worries there. I actually enjoy my appointments!!

First time going to Care First Dental Team and they are amazing!!! They were able to accommodate our large family and were very organized in doing so, which I know if difficult! Jessica we met first and she can handle anything she is at the front desk but is definitely all over the place helping! Next we met Ashley who was wonderful and so sweet to my little ones, Made them enjoy the visit! Also Christina had my oldest daughter and Christina pretty much kept her from melting down, as well as doing an amazing job on her teeth and making her feel good! Now to the important part, the scary dentist that the world is afraid of (including me lol) Dr. Coope! He is just amazing, to the point on what he thinks the best options would be and very caring about his patients feelings and their care, even if it means he isn’t making money. Wanted us to take one of ours to a different dentist because he knows if would be a better fit for her, she will be going back to him sooner or later though. Truly a genuine guy and I definitely and highly recommend! Thank you to everyone at the office even if I didn’t write your name! You were all sweet and helpful!

Absolutely by far the best dentist office I have ever been to. I HATED going to the dentist and because of it didn’t go for probably 6 years until my mom got me a cleaning as a gift, and I have not missed an appointment since!!!! Everything about this place is a 180 degree turn from my dental experiences prior to visiting Care First. From the second you walk in the door you feel like your the only priority and they are there to help you and answer any and all questions you may have. The hygienist’s are all so beyond friendly and PAY ATTENTION TO YOU AND YOUR NEEDS the entire time your in the office. Dr. Coop actually comes into the room and spends real time with you, explaining what is going on and answering all the questions you may have. It almost relaxes me being there which is an insane thing for me to say if you knew how I felt about dentists prior to visiting here. Overall amazing place and I don’t think I could ever go anywhere else, even if I move across the country it would be worth it to visit for dental appointments! THANK YOU!!!

They are super friendly and accommodating. During the craziness of Covid, they have adapted very well and I felt like royalty as I was being escorted to and from each area. They are always professional but treat you like family. My husband and daughter also use Care First Dental and that speaks volumes.

You have to love going to the dentist with an office like this! Dr. Coope is gentle and takes the time to explain in terms that I understand what he’s doing and what to expect. Ashley, my hygienist, cares enough to educate me and always makes me feel like I’m the only patient that matters to her at that moment. You’re not a number at Care First Dental Team, you’re actually a real person!!!

When you typically think of the dentist, your first thoughts usually aren’t all that great. However, when it comes to Dr. Coope and his staff, I simply can’t think of one negative thing to say about them. So, thank you for being so amazing to my family and I!

Feed back What can I say have been seeing this team now for 3 years. And from the time you walk in the door to the time you walk out you are treated with excellent. I have NEVER! Felt any pain one time sence going there and if I had I would not go there. They ask you feel all through all your time in the chare to see how you are. Everyone is professionals no way I can pick out one person. Yes if anyone is looking for a great dentist this is the place.

Dr. Coope and his staff are the best! A porcelain crown that was covering a chipped front tooth for many years finally fell off. Care First Dental got me in for an evaluation the same afternoon and he replaced it the very next day! The replacement that Dr Coope did looked perfect- cannot even tell it’s there. Everyone there at Care First Dental shows they really care. Been a client for years and would never look elsewhere. I can’t recommend them enough!

The staff is very friendly and professional. Jessica ,Ashlynn and Anna are very thorough and friendly with their clients/patients. The care they show to patients goes above and beyond any other dentists in the area. I would highly recommend Dr Coope and his team to anyone seeking a dentist.

Dr. Coope & his team are hands down the best in the area. I have been a patient with Dr. Coope for more than 10 years ( back when his office was in West Dover). He takes the time to truly listen to his patient’s concerns and questions. He is very knowledgeable – and has helped me successfully manage my TMD for years. The staff are friendly and professional and always willing to help. I always recommend Dr.Coope whenever someone says they need a dentist. Other pros: Clean, state of the art office Appointment availability Comfortable waiting area Goody bag with dental supplies after each cleaning!

I absolutely love Dr. Coope and all the girls at his office! Care First Dental is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. Dr. Coope is friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. His girls are the same! Everyone is always similing, remember you on a first name basis. I know one of Dr. Coopes Assistants, Jessica V. and anytime I have a issues with my teeth she’s there to answer any of my concerns, even on her off time! That’s great customer service! I always feel welcomed and comfortable and most importantly Dr. Coope wants you to feel comfortable during any procedure! I have been a patient for 6 or so years, and even though I have new insurance that will not allow me to see Dr. Coope, I will still go to Care First every 6 months for my checkup!

Every single staff member at Care First is compassionate, and sincerely trying to ensure a good experience for each and every visit. This office actually runs on time! My kids are excited for their first visit. I have anxiety about seeing the dentist and having my teeth cleaned. This team takes the time to ensure I feel safe and comfortable. I’ve had several fillings by Dr. Coope, and he is skillful, gentle, and really fast! (I ask him to just get it done when I’m at the business end of a drill.) Today I worked with Jessica who was so kind, thorough at explaining everything, and a super cheerleader to help me get through. I highly recommend Care First to my friends, and to anyone in the area who needs top quality dental care.

I would recommend this dental team to anyone! They are so welcoming and always wearing a smile. I visit them along with my 5 year old at least twice a year for cleaning and check ups. I did couple of fillings as well. They always do a perfect job and give you the best advice to help keep your teeth healthy. Next month i am planning to take my 3 year old as well for his first check up. Keep it up Care First Dental team!

Dental cleaning was great as always but Christina was very personable and genuine and it was evident that she loves and takes pride in her work. If possible I would like to have her do all my cleanings. Dr. Coope has a knack for hiring great staff. Forgive me for not remembering her name, but the front desk associate is ALWAYS awesome!! ( Normally wears hair in bun but has it down yesterday).
