Dr. Ward Whitaker has a a reputation for being one of the best dentists in Tampa.  He definitely lived up to the reputation with a gentle hand and genuine concern for my dental care. I loved all the modern technology in his office too with digital X-rays and a computer where you could see the information immediately.  His staff was simply awesome!

I started coming here for a little over a year now and I can’t even say the words how impress and happy I am with their services. Best Hygenist i have ever had! When I say I leave feeling like a brand new car I felt my mouth be so clean after coming here for cleanings. All the staff is amazing and so helpful. Anyone that ask me for dentist I always refer to them.

I’ve been going to Custom Dental for a while now and it is a really great place. Everyone from the dentists to the staff are very friendly and my hygienist Tanya she is fantastic and does such a great job! I highly recommend this office. This office provides excellent service!! Thank you Dr Whitaker for taking care of me and son, we greatly appreciate your services.

My entire experience from check in, to xrays to just talking while my options were explained to me was great. Dr. Whitaker has a really nice, friendly personality as well as he knows his craft, which makes for a pleasant experience. My procedure to begin repairing my broken tooth to ready for a crown was truly pain free and found the entire experience non stressful. Dr. Whitaker and his entire staff were great! I go back in a couple weeks for my finished crown. I’ve already reccomended Dr. Whitaker to my mom and husband.

I love Dr.Whitaker and his staff. Everyone is so pleasant. They make you feel very welcome The office is nicely decorated and very clean. They get you in as quick as possible if your having pain. This is my second time having a Root Canal and everything went as smoothly this second time as it did my first . Dr.Whitaker is very skilled at what he does . Very kind and understanding and takes the time to talk to you about any concerns you may have about your teeth. He does an excellent job. Everyone there does. I would highly recommend going here.

This practice is great and everyone is very friendly. They give you control over your care. There was little wait time. I was given a cost estimate and am able to schedule the services when I can afford them. They’ll do as little or as much as you want done at a time. Everyone was great and I would highly recommended making them your dental provider.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ward Whitaker to anyone looking for any kind of dental care. I called last minute after finding his office for a bad wisdom tooth that needed to be treated right away, not only did he fix my issue he did it that very same day. Great staff and very friendly and caring.

I have only positive information to pass on but that’s great in itself! From the beautiful and kind Receptionist/ Office manager ,all of the technicians and especially the Doctor treat you like a long time good friend while maintaining a superior level of knowledge and skill is employed throughout practice. This is still dentistry we are talking about so the doc makes you as comfortable as is possible during your entire visit. All of my family has seen him at this practice and at least 2 friends. You will see exactly what I am referring to on your 1st visit. Pamala

This location is efficient in both the work they do and the quality of service they deliver. They accommodate you for your needs and the exceptional experience will definitely retain me as a patient! The hygienist Tanya is excellent and very personable. Priscilla the office manager is excellent with providing you with all the information you need and you can tell the business is succeeding with her leadership!

I love Dr. Whitaker and his staff. They are very kind, patient, and thorough. They are my family dentist, which includes my mentally handicapped brother. He doesn’t like going to the dentist, but they really make his visits positive and stress-free. He actually enjoys going now. Also, their prices are very reasonable.

So glad I found this team when I moved to Tampa. I can personally speak to Priscilla, Tanya, and Dr. Whitaker providing wonderful service. All are so friendly, caring, and accommodating. Additionally, being able to go to two locations provides flexibility for my schedule. Staff is always personable and they truly assist in coordinating care when specialists (periodontist, oral surgery) are needed.

Today I went in to have a tooth extracted that has previously had work done in it in the past. The dentist and his staff were absolutly amazing. Im terrified of doctors and dentist when it comes to procedures and they could see that and they were so very kind. The dentist opted to instead send me for a root canal. I want to say thank you all for your sweetness and helping me to get pain free

I had a wonderful experience!!!! All the staff are nice & friendly. I love Tanya’s room. It makes you feel cozy & Comfortable. Besides she is very professional. I went for a cleaning. And most of the time when I had gone for a cleaning I left with some pain but this time it was painless and they took care of my sensitive gums. They gave me great recommendations. I truly felt well taking care and I definitely will go back.

When you think of going to the Dentist you think nothing but bad thoughts right?! Wrong, the entire staff was AMAZING, from check in to check out!! The Office Manager Cindy, is so professional and welcoming. Aracelis was so gentle, warm and caring. She showed genuine concern when I was explaining my issues. Dr. Whitaker is by far the most detailed and experienced Dentist I have had the pleasure to be seen by. Mary and Aury were just so nice and made me feel welcome and took away the anxiousness I had. Tanya the Hygienist is “OH MY GOODNESS” absolutely phenomenal! She has the hands of an angel! I have NEVER had a cleaning like that in my entire life, let’s just say that I am very excited to be going back and completing the rest of the work that needs to be done! Thank you Custom Dental Care! See you in December

Dr. Whitaker was very easy-going and competent. The staff was friendly and helpful. I loved the home like decor. My experience was that if I had an 11 o’clock appointment, they started treating me at 11 o’clock. No waiting. The only thing I did not like was the appointment calls and reminders. They called several days before the appointment and the reminders did not have the appointment time. I am happy and will continue to go back.

I have been going to Custom Dental Care for 2 years. I am continually impressed with their level of expertise and professionalism. I cannot say enough about their hygienist, Tanya. She is by far the best hygienist I have ever had clean my teeth. I highly recommend this office and look forward to many more cleaning there!

I’ve never been a fan of going to the Dentist but Custom Dental Care has made me change my mindset. My Hygienist Tanya is amazing and makes me feel at home with every visit. And Dr. Whitaker provides a welcoming environment. Polite, makes great conversation, and takes his time to make sure I’m comfortable. You won’t catch me anywhere else.

These people are amazing !! My whole family go’s here and they took me as a walk in the same day they were able to get a full exam done and show me everything that I need to get done and they were also able to work with me because of my insurance situation everyone is very nice and welcoming !!! I found my new dentist fam !!

I typically hate going to the dentist. However this dentist visit was like no other. His dential hygienist explained everything to where I can understand what needed to be done. Then the dentist himself was very friendly and made sure I understood the importance of what needed to be taken care of and what the rates would be. I’ll say job well done.

I’m from out of town and desperately needed my wisdom teeth taken out. Within 2 hours of finding this place I was already in a chair waiting for them to prep the tools. I’m amazed at how quickly they got my insurance through and got me the treatment I needed. I’m definitely making these guys my go to dentist here in Tampa.

Wonderful experience, friendly staff and a great dentist! He resisted putting a crown on my tooth when I was having a problem, just in case I needed a root canal… thank goodness he waited! I did need a root canal, so I got that done first and will now go back and get a crown. Someone else in the waiting room at the endodontist office (where I needed to get the root canal) had a crown put on by her dentist before checking this out, and it increased her pain, so now she was in the other doctor’s office to get the root canal to get that done on an emergency basis! Thank you, Dr. Whitaker in Wesley Chapel, FL!

Had cracked molar and another tooth sheared off and impacted. I was in so much pain I could not sleep and nobody I called could squeeze me in before a week. Doctor here fit me in. I was happy but maybe a little worried not the upscale part of town so maybe quality of work might reflect. I hoped for 3 star service but got 5 star. Price was so reasonable that I was able to afford both teeth. He did a very thorough job even doing more post x Ray’s to make sure he got all the bad tissue and bone. Staff all friendly I would give 6 stars if I could. Me and the wife have a new dentist.

Great experience. There was an option in text to click and fill the forms online. Reminders for appointment in text messages too. Doctor was pretty straightforward and honest. Showed me all alternatives and my options with him and outside his dental office. Prices are reasonable. Hygienist Tanya is awesome. She put all the time and effort to work on my cleaning and also explained all the detailed instructions to keep up and maybe avoid next cleaning.

I needed quick service to have 2 teeth pulled and they got me in and did it the same day! They didn’t pressure me to do something I didn’t want to do. The staff is fabulous and the doc was great! Though it was painful it’s now done and on with the healing! Thank you all at Custom Dental for the warmth and caring you give!

I walked into Custom Dental Care with a missing cap/crown that I swallowed by accident. Custom jumped in and took care of my tooth by providing me with a new one all while providing outstanding customer service skills and an enormous amount of humor. They treat their patients like family and that made all the difference in my world. Thanks a million to the entire staff! From the customer service representative ans the front desk to the representative that molded my tooth and took my X-ray impressions and to the hilarious Dentist, Mr. Ward, I thank you much!

Dr Whitaker is awesome. He is kind and really makes sure that you are comfortable. I had a very extensive procedure and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Not only is Dr Whitaker great but he has the best staff in Tampa! He will be my dentist from here on out and I will recommend him every chance I get.
