This office is the best!  Everyone was friendly and helpful.  They listen to you and don’t try to sell you anything at all.  They explain to you what they are going to do and very gentle when they work in your mouth.  I’m usually leery of new dentists and was very pleased with the service and I recommend this office to anyone who needs a new dental office and dentist.

My experience with these folk was extremely positive. I went there for a second opinion for some extensive work prescribed by a different dentist. They were very thorough in explaining everything and confirming the diagnosis. Due to insurance differences, they advised I get the work done by my previous dentist as it needed to be done soon. They were very professional and I was impressed in their concern for the patient and not the profit.

Modern updated practice. Everyone was so nice and thorough with explanations in terminology you could understand. Watched animal planet during the cleaning. They do a Great job at making it feel like you aren’t at the dentist. Found my new dentist.

G. Lee A. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to dentists for about 77 of my 82 years, but, until I began seeing Dr. Wood a number of years ago, never looked forward to an appointment. His staff is welcoming, waiting time is minimal and I am very comfortable with the dental care he provides.  I’ve recommended him to my three family members and they are  equally pleased with the care and level of services he and his staff provide.  Others in business would be well served to follow his example.

From the first contact I had with them they have provided excellent service. From the phone call to set up and unfortunately to reschedule my initial appointment they were extremely helpful. Kelly, the dental hygienist was just as excellent providing great guidance and information as she went through the process. Doctor G was just as amazing. Very clear on a few ways forward with my dental plan. I didn’t feel he was rushed. He spent time explaining what was going on and why he was recommending certain dental plans. Finally Michelle at the front desk. She is amazing. She spent time to explain what options are available. Really impressed me she had what the insurance company would cover on the proposed plan Doctor G plan. If you are looking for a local dentist I highly recommend Cypress Family Dentistry on Johns Island.

As someone that gets very anxious when going to the dentist, Dr. Wood really put me at ease. He cared about my concerns. Answered all of my questions and made me feel welcomed and valued as a customer. The facility is very clean and their technology is very up to date and catered to patient comfort. On top of it all, every interaction I had with the rest of the staff was positive and welcoming as well. My experience has definitely helped take away some of my “dentist anxiety”.

Julie H. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying I hate going to the dentist. I would rather give birth. For that reason, I had neglected my teeth for 10 years  was c. Until I started getting extreme pain in one of my teeth and all the way up my jaw. I knew I had to go. My daughters both suggested I go to their dentist. The staff was nice and got me in to see him the very next day. Dr. Wood was great. He put me at ease, took care of the problem and managed to not chastise me too much for my irresponsible dental history. I ended up needing a root canal and he even called me later that night to see how I was. I definitely recommend Cypress Family Dental and Dr. Wood. Great dentist and the personal touch of checking in on me after is rare and made the experience that much better.

I had a great all around experience at Cypress Family Dental! Setting up the appointment was easy, the staff were friendly, everything was on-time and the cleaning experience was great. They made sure to answer all of my questions and I felt great about the information they provided. I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone!

Amy Binau (Source: Google)


I would rate this place a 10! I’ve been to numerous dentist and I must say my experience at Cypress was phenomenal. Dr G took his time explaining everything to me and answered all my questions. The front desk staff answered all my questions and the cleaning was also phenomenal. I’m hard to please but the staff here was great!

Robin H. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great staff and AWESOME dentist! I had gone to a different dentist office in Long Beach, CA and their treatment plan was over $8,000 and included multiple tooth extractions. Dr. Wood did an exam and told me he could save my teeth (which he has done) and that I just needed a re treatment of a prior root canal, only 1 other root canal with crown, a few fillings and a good cleaning. AND at a small fraction of the cost that the other dental office had said! I didn’t even feel the shot to numb my mouth and the work done was painless! I am super happy with these results and highly recommend this office.

Greg A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Doctor Wood III since I was 8 years old.  I am now 55 and I travel from the Inland empire just to go to his office!  When I obtained my first teaching job, I had coverage that would not allow me to see Dr. Wood.  The experience I had with the other dentist left no doubt that I would NEVER go to another dentist.  The staff and his professionalism is beyond words! I love my dentist and Melissa my hygienist! To me it’s worth the one hour drive to see them.

I am always nervous to visit any dentist, but this was the best dental office experience I have ever had in my life. Everyone was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Everyone, including the front desk people, the dental assistant, the hygenist, and the doctor took their time to explain everything to me with thoroughness and patience. The doctor and the assistant also showed me the pictures they took of what was going on in my mouth so I could really see and understand, and it made all the difference. I am very grateful I found such a dynamic and committed group of individuals to care for my teeth! Highly recommend!

Kelly M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband I recently had a need to look for a dentist in our area. We visited Dr. Wood at Cypress Family Dental and it was the best decision we made. The staff is very friendly and professional. I have a very busy work schedule and they are very accommodating. Being a new patient I had many questions and dental needs and Dr. Wood took the time to listen to my concerns and went above and beyond to make my teeth look beautiful. We are so happy we found Cypress Family dental.

Lucille A. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Always a great experience at Cypress Family Dental! Dr. Wood and his entire staff are so organized and friendly. They are always ready and waiting to serve within a matter of minutes once you walk through the door! They go above and beyond the call of duty, greeting you by name and treating you with kid gloves, not to mention the cookies at the end are so sweeeeet 🙂

Valerie M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Woods is an incredible dentist. He truly cares about his patients. My last visit, he was closed however because I was in pain he went into the office and performed a root canal. He would not hear of me remaining in pain. His work is outstanding, and I would never consider going to another dentist. His staff is caring, efficient and professional. I would, without reservation, highly recommend this dentist.

I have been afraid of the dentist since I was young due to a couple of bad experiences that I have had with previous dentists. I must admit that I am excited that I have found a dentist office that really shows compassion. The whole entire Staff displays total professionalism and you can tell they really love what they do. I recommend anyone to Cypress Family Dental because they really treat you like family. Thank you Guys with All my heart for finally taking my fear away. Looking forward to all of my upcoming visits.

Carol H. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


For anyone who is fearful of dentists because of pain or other issues, you won’t have to worry about Dr. Don Wood. He is the most gentle dentist I have ever been to (and I have been to many; I even worked for one)! He is gentle, honest, and lets you know before he starts the work what the fees will be. He truly cares about his patient’s comfort and peace of mind (billing). My husband just went to him the other day for the first time and he said that it was the first time that he didn’t feel anything when he was numbed. That says a lot. I am really glad I found Dr. Wood and would highly recommend him to anyone! As a bonus, he give out chocolate chip cookies when you leave!

I have had the most amazing experiences at the Cypress Dental office. Everyone has been so kind and helpful. I had long standing dental problems that they were able to solve and at such an affordable price. At no point did they judge me for my dental issues that I have ignored for years! They were kind, sympathetic and treated me with such respect! I have recommended this practice to all my friends and neighbors.

I can’t think of anything in life I despise more than having my teeth cleaned. It’s painful, uncomfortable, and time consuming. I won’t even mention my distaste for x-rays. If you also dislike these things GO TO CYPRESS FAMILY DENTAL. Let this be the review that persuades you. My family has been going for a little over two years and I have NEVER had a better experience at a dental office. I have never had the same person clean my teeth and every single one of them have been extremely gentle and considerate. They’re as steady as a brain surgeon. Dr. White is always timely and professional. I really appreciate that I don’t spend half my day at their office. I’m usually in and out in 30 to 45 minutes. We’re moving soon which puts them pretty far away from our new home but I’ve already decided I’ll happily make the drive every 6 months for their exceptional work. They’re phenomenal

Joan M. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen Dr. Wood for the last 30 years and his father as my dentist before that, since I was 5. Both father and son have provided the best dentistry and beyond that, personal attention. This superb attention is seen in his assistance and in his office staff. Everyone is pleasant and does his/her best to make you feel that you matter. At 18 I had white spots on my teeth and I was very self-conscious about smiling and letting others see my teeth. Before I went to college, Dr. Wood covered these and made a complete difference in my adult life. The most amazing part is that I did not have the money to pay for this service and insurance didn’t cover it. I was only going to be able to do my front two teeth. He did all of fhem and only charged me for the front two. That single act changed my entire adult life. Currently my dad at 84 has had numerous medical complications which has affected his dentures. Dr. Wood sees him as often as my dad feels the need and Dr. Wood always treats him and our family with the upmost of professionalism and personal care. I feel very blessed to have had a mom pick a dentist for me when I was 5 that would end up being my dentist or his son being my dentist for all this time. Thank you Dr. Wood Sr. and Jr. for such outstanding service.

Tim H. from F. Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my teeth cleaned today!  I’ve been a very satisfied patient of Cypress Family Dental for many years.  Melissa is an excellent hygienist and Dr. Wood has always provided me with the best dental care possible from replacing aging fillings to needed root canals.  When alternative procedures are available I am always able to discuss them and to choose the best option for my situation.  The entire staff is friendly, supportive and efficient.  Highly recommended.

Called Cypress because of tooth pressure and jaw pain. They got me in the same day. Professional, friendly and attentive. Dr. G and all of the staff made me feel comfortable. As good as a dental visit can be

Charlotte S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going to Cypress Family Dental for many, many years. I would never go anywhere else for my dental needs. Great people. Extremely nice. Great work and state of the art equipment. Is really a family atmosphere. And the best part is……THEY GIVE YOU THE BEST HOMEMADE COOKIES WHEN YOU LEAVE. WOW!!!!! I highly recommend Cypress Family Dental. Let’s face it. No one likes going to the dentist RIGHT? But ever time I leave I say to myself…gee why was I dreading that!! Everyone who works there is so friendly and accommodating. You looking for a dentist. Look no further. Nicest bunch of people and great dental work.

Harry Malone (Source: Google)


I highly recommend this practice. I was visiting from out of town and needed to see a dentist for a suddenly broken tooth. Cypress fit me in first thing in the morning, diagnosed my problem (using impressive technology), and walked me through the possible remedies, which all pointed to a crown. They researched area practices that did same-day crowns, called around, and made an appointment for me to be seen immediately. By lunchtime, I was all fixed. Wow! Thanks to Dr. G and his team!

Dario S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this dentist for over twenty years! He has always been courteous, professional, and kind. He treats my entire family. Not just my kids and wife, but my siblings too. The front office staff is amazing, the hygienists are amazing, the equipment is amazing. They are great with kids, older people and everything in between. I could not recommend them more. If you’re looking for a dentist, or just want to try out a new one, this is the one to measure all others by.

Muriel S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to see Dr. Wood and his staff for almost 15 years. I feel that I’m cared for like a loved family member by everyone; I notice that many of his staff have been with him for all the time I’ve been going to him. Dr. Wood does good work; I have never had any problems with his treatments. He has reliable systems in place; appointments are started and finished on time; everyone is very skilled in their tasks, and he uses current and proven technology and equipment to make the treatments very easy on the patients…cost effective, too. Dr. Wood pays attention to details. Today, I had a treatment and didn’t even feel the needle for the anesthetic, nor the anesthetic being injected. If you want outstanding dental care you can trust, go see Dr. Don! Muriel S

Jessica W. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Cypress Family Dental know how to treat their patients. Dr. Wood is excellent and gives you personal attention unlike most other dentist these days. They are super friendly and most of all honest. Trust is my number one must with any dentist or doctor… you know your in good hands the minute you walk in the door. Thank you Cypress Family Dental and DDW… your the best!!!

Kathy C. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


A few years ago after a very bad experience with a dentist in HB (that only got worse after a very painful crown procedure) I changed to Dr. Don Wood’s Cypress Family Dental office.  Dr. Wood is everything that my previous dentist was not… kind, professional and caring.  He takes time to listen and help in anyway he can and his staff is wonderful as well. After a year under his care I needed another crown and this time the procedure was wonderful! Because of my very positive experiences, I recently referred my elderly father to Dr. Wood’s office for help in adjusting the fit of a dental plate that his recently retired dentist made for him.  Again Dr. Wood listened to my dad and kept working with him to get an optimal, pain free fit.  Needless to say, he was beyond pleased with the care he received there as well. I am so grateful to have a dentist that I can trust again.

I can’t say enough good things about Cypress Family Dental. Everyone was so pleasant from the minute I walked in the door. Kelly was awesome and was gentle during the X-ray process (my least favorite part of a dentist visit!) Dr. G was professional, knowledgeable, and also realistic. He let me know what he believed needed to be done now versus what can be taken care of down the road. I don’t know what I was expecting of my first dental visit in the last few years (oops), but if you’re looking for a new office, this is it. Thanks for taking care of me!

The most amazing dentist and staff I have ever had! New office, great location, amazing experience all around. The front desk is welcoming and so sweet and very efficient. Then the hygienists are equally amazing and do a great job. All smiles all the time. And very good at their jobs. I have had 3 different hygienists and they are all fantastic! Then there is Dr. White. I cannot even express how good and amazing she is! I was super scared and she really eased my fears and was so gentle. Always there to explain things and answer my questions. Great experience every single time. I am SO glad I found them! I will be a lifer!

Jeff A. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a complicated case. I was hesitant with my previous dentist and went to Dr. Wood for a second opinion. Unlike my previous dentist there was never any pressure here – I took almost a year to decide which direction to go. I needed a bridge or implants to replace my two upper front teeth – and there were a couple complications. Early on, Dr. Wood suggested Invisalign prior to the final procedures. I have my new bridge now, and after a long investment with Invisalign I can’t be happier with my perfect smile. At the crucial moment, Dr. Wood gave me excellent counseling as to which way to go. There was no pressure to go with the more expensive implants. The implants would have been nice, but the bridge was the better choice for my situation. The staff are friendly and make  you feel right at home.  Five stars for Dr. Wood and Cypress Family Dental!!

Cyndy T. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wood is absolutely the best dentist there is.  He is not only the nicest man, but he explains everything that he is doing along the way, no surprises.   When he has to give you an injection for a procedure,  he is as gentle as they come.  And his office staff is top notch.  They are very friendly and extremely personable.   His hygienist Melissa is also just as amazing.   You would have to know that I have been going to him for 30 years.  When I first started going there I was the biggest dental chicken there was.  Dr. Wood and everyone office staff member there since then has made my experience pleasurable and worked with me to overcome my fears.  Dr. Wood is the best!  I cannot thank him enough for all he’s done for me.  Oh, and the chocolate chip cookies, AMAZING!!

After completing my first visit to Cypress Family Dental, I can say it was the best medical visit I’ve ever had. As a former medical health care professional, I have not seen such a caring, efficient staff since my time at the Mayo Clinic. Every single staff member from the front desk to Dr. Gioche was very welcoming. Dr. Gioche has an amazing bedside manner and asked me if I had questions multiple times. He took the time to explain everything in detail. I will be a patient of Cypress Family Dental as long as I’m living in the Charleston area. Thank you to the whole staff for caring about each patient that walks through your doors!

They take such good care of you to increase your comfort level and truly make me feel that I’m going to be ok despite My fears bc they are by my side. I love going to the Dentist bc of how they care. Thank you Dr. White.

Mark H. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Wood, Jr’s practice for 35 years now – and have never had an unsatisfactory experience.  I’ve gone to them for cleanings, fillings and root canals.  The front desk is always upbeat and fun to visit with before I head in, I’ve never had to wait beyond a few minutes to be taken in; the hygienists are friendly, efficient and thorough; Dr Wood is on the spot when we’re ready for him to do his check.  After my root canal, I received a call to check on my progress.  Always a pleasant experience, and for a dental office, that’s saying something!!
