This is an outstanding dental clinic.  I live in Illinois and was visiting my daughter when my temporary crown broke at 6 a.m. just before we were to leave on a road trip to Texas and New Orleans.  My daughter called as soon as they opened at 6:20, and I was able to get in at 8 a.m.  The staff was excellent. Dr. Abbott created a superior temporary crown than the one that broke; I was out the door before 9 a.m. and able to enjoy my vacation with my daughter.  My insurance doesn’t cover temporary crowns (boo!), so I was thrilled when I received a discount for being a senior citizen.

Had the best experience at TLC. It had been over a year since my last cleaning and they spent a great amount of time not only on my teeth, but also informing me of everything they were doing and tips along the way! Everyone was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and I could not recommend this place more!

AMAZING!!! This office is great! Everyone is super friendly and they do everything they can to calm your nerves. They got me in for 3 different procedures at the last minute and still had me in and out. This is my new place I can’t say enough good things about them.

Patricia F. from Lithonia, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a member over 15 years.  Dental TLC really is an awesome dental facility.  This all begins with management “Dr. Abbott”…a great dentist and the greatness does not stop there, the staff overall is amazing.  I drive from Lithonia, my preference to come to Sandy Springs for all of my dental needs.  This is a must try “A1” dental practice!!!  Love this group!!!

I was ALWAYS afraid of returning to the dentist after years of neglect! But Dental TLC is beyond the best!!! Everyone is SOOOOO nice and knowledgeable! I am a client of theirs for life!!! If you’re afraid, please come here for treatment and the health of your teeth! They have the best hygienists and their bedside manner is awesome! I can’t say enough good things! So glad my friend told me about them!

Jason A. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going here for 25 years!  OK Dr Abbott is also my brother but I am very particular about my health & medical care.  I change medical professionals if I am not comfortable that they are up on the most current research and equipment.  The staff at TLC is friendly, helpful and the doctors and hygienists are world class.  Take the online office tour and see how modern they are.  I have friends from my first job in Atlanta that are still coming here too.

Tamala E. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Not only the best dentist in Atlanta, they are the best dentist I’ve ever been to period.  Ruthie did a deep cleaning on me today and she was outstanding.  Had this procedure done several years ago at a different dentist and it was absolute torture.  Ruthie was gentle, quick and did it without a shot of novocaine.  Just used a topical to numb my mouth.  I was prepared for two days of misery to recover from this procedure and instead am enjoying the rest of my day as if nothing happened.  I hope I never have to go to a different dentist ever again.  These guys are amazing and make a visit to the dentist something not to dread.

Trust me when I say I have THE BIGGEST phobia of going to the dentist. Which isn’t great when you also have soft, cavity-prone marshmallow teeth. So I don’t write this lightly, and actually I don’t write reviews hardly ever, so that alone shows how much I loved Dental TLC. My entire experience put me at total ease, and even though I have quite a bit of work to do (from years of being a huge, dentist-avoiding baby), I actually feel comfortable with the plan. Everyone I came in contact with, from front desk, my hygienist, and my dr was so kind, and while I’m sure the entire team is equally wonderful, wanted to give a special shout out to Falyn, Amber, and Dr Abbott (thanks so much, y’all!) for making this the best dentist visit I’ve ever had. If you need a great dentist, call Dental TLC, especially if you’re a big baby like me. Haha.

I have been a patient here for over 10 years and I will never go anywhere else.. I was traumatized as a child and grew up with lots of anxiety and panic attacks when it came to going to the dentist and Dental TLC has erased that fear!!! The staff is always very accommodating and empathic and willing to do what you need to get through your treatment with ease. Katie has been my hygienist and she is kind and gentle and takes her time any time I need a break she stops and lets me have my moment and allows me to relax again. I recently had the pleasure of seeing Stacey and she was just as perfect!! So so kind gentle and sweet and beyond professional!! Dr Abbott what can I say about this amazing guy besides he’s amazing!! He has the best beside manner and bubbly personality and makes the experience one to remember!! You will definitely leave smiling and laughing!! The customer service here is unmatched!!

Akeasha B. from Lithonia, GA (Source: Yelp)


This is an amazing dental office. I hadn’t been in a long time…more than I really care to admit here. They were kind, no judgement, answered my questions and provided excellent service. I had to have a little work done and we discussed my options. Everything worked out great. I just went back for my 6 month check up, they were happy to see me…no patient is just a number to them. What a good feeling. This office has great amenities. They send text message reminders, have on site computer check-in (which helps them stay on time) and TV’s in each room on the wall and ceiling. You can even use headphones and flip through the satellite channels. There’s no elevator music in this place, only popular rock hits – both current and classics. So, if the music doesn’t make you feel comfortable and you’re still nervous, you can opt-in for free laughing gas to help calm you down. The office staff and doctors make an annual trip to a an underprivileged country to provide free dental screenings and perform needed procedures. To recap – they’re awesomely nice people, rock music pumping in, tv’s to watch while you’re in the chair, no annoying reminder calls (unless you like that!), and they give back to the international community!?!?!?! Check, check and check. I love this place!

I want to say that while I was scared of the pain, this dentist office ,DENTAL TLC is exceptional,   They are  most caring and kind and the staff is wonderful,  Poni, is the BEST she made me feel clam and Ruthie was great,  and I cannot forget  Dr. Abbott he provided me with a beautiful  smile.  I will always return to DENTAL TLC and I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Today was my first day visiting, Dental TLC. When I walk into the doors I was WOWED and felt comfortable. The waiting area doesn’t feel or look like a normal dental waiting area. High class furniture that felt so soft. Check in was super easy and quick. I already knew I was in the right place when the front desk staff greeted me with a bright smile and warm Hello. Each staff who had service me was phenomenal and extremely friendly. I LOVE MY NEW DENTIST!! I cant stop smiling showing my clean pretty teeth!!! LOL

Arlene S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Just arrived to my office after having my semi-annual dental cleaning and exam. I’ve been going to Dental TLC for over 18 years. The best dentist practice in the metro Atlanta area!!! Spectacular state of the art facility. Exceptional staff and facility; friendly, clean, convenient, personable and loyal. Their attitude has been consistent from my very first visit 18 years ago, the welcome by the front desk, the timeliness by the hygienist to the dentists sealing the deal always; smooth and timely transition. I’ve bonded with Barbara, one of the hygienist. In 18 years, only twice she has not cleaned my teeth due to vacation. I will not trade them for all the tea in China! I have referred a few clients to Dental TLC and they share my sentiments. Keep up the good work Dental TLC!

Lauren H. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


THE ABSOLUTE BEST DENTIST IN ATLANTA..I called Dental TLC yesterday to make an appointment for a stubborn toothache that would NOT go away. The ladies at the front desk answered all of my questions and contacted my insurance company to see how much of the treatment plan would be covered( before i even actually set the appointment) which left me with no surprise bills to pay once the procedure was given. Within 30 minutes of calling the office, i had a set appointment for that same afternoon. Upon arriving, i was greeted by the friendly staff at the front and one of the dental assistants, Casey, met with me while i was filling out paperwork. As we made our way back to the exam room, i couldn’t help but be a little nervous. i mean, who likes going to the dentist!!?? Casey made me feel incredibly comfortable while she took my x-rays and got me set up to see Dr. Abbott. (If you’re lucky enough to get Casey as your dental assistant, ask her about her accents!! She kept me laughing the entire time that she was in the room.) Dr. Abbott was a ball of energy as he came into the room, which i absolutely loved. He explained what my procedure would consist of and stayed in the room to answer each and every question or concern that i could think of. He didn’t make me feel like he was rushing or that he had other patients waiting on him. He is by far the best and most laid back dentist that i have ever had! I was offered free laughing gas which really helped relax me while the Dr. Abbott was working on my tooth. The procedure took about 45 minutes, which actually flew by. Upon finishing, Amanda met with me and explained how to care for this now huge hole in my mouth and walked me to the front to check out. She too, was super friendly and answered all of my post-op questions! I have definitely found a regular dentist to visit in Atlanta. I’ve already set an appointment with them in December and I’M LOOKING FORWARD to going back!

Susan M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Abbott’s since 1994 and have never thought of going elsewhere. I love the consistency of his staff as many that work with me have been there as long as I have.  I love Dr. Abbott’s high energy and great personality.  I have also had Rochelle as a hygienist for years and Ruthie as well. All of the staff are great to work with!

Keith Watkins (Source: Facebook)


Today was my first visiting Dental TLC. When I walked through the doors I felt comfortable with the first Hello from the front desk staff. Each staff that services me was phenomenal and so friendly. The service was quick and fast. I cannot wait to have my second visit

Debbie L. from Decatur, GA (Source: Yelp)


Went to the dentist today after not having been for a REALLY long time. I was dreading it and was sure I would have a really painful cleaning at the very least. i opted to have a little gas to be on the safe side, and the minute I felt a little uncomfortable, the hygienest was there to turn it down. They used a topical to numb the pain and although the cleaning went on for a while, I barely felt a thing. Even a few hours later, I’m still not feeling any discomfort. The staff at Dental TLC was attentive, knowledgeable, not at all pushy about services, and were EXTREMELY gentle. I would definitely recommend them, especially if you have a fear of the dentist!

Laura Badovinac (Source: Google)


This is the best dental practice! They are friendly and communicative from the moment you enter the door. You are told how much your visit is going to be and what your insurance should cover. My hygienist Barbara was very knowledgeable and great throughout the whole cleaning. Dr. Abbott was awesome as well! I can see why my parents raved about them, definitely will be back!

Best dental experience I have ever had in 30 years! I hate going to the dentist but this was an incredible experience! Falyn was fantastic! She explained everything that she was doing and was super sweet and warm! Amber did a amazing job cleaning my teeth! Dr. Abbott is an absolute joy. I can’t believe I am saying this but I am looking forward to my next cleaning! If you hate going to the dentist this is the place for you! Not your typical dental experience! And, I love their music playlist and decor!

A W. from Sandy Springs, GA (Source: Yelp)


Every Member if staff is extremely kind and helpful. There is never any pressure and my kids LOVE coming to the dentist! I’ve referred everyone here for the last 12 years. Anyone even mentions a dentist appointment and I am so quick to say “DENTAL TLC” . Even tho we live more than an hour away- we make the trip !! Totally worth it!!! They can get my whole family in and out in a snap! There is 8 of us! Always a great experience!

Si K. from Sandy Springs, GA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a fan of Dental TLC Dr. Abbott he has been superb over the years my hygiene stay’s on point at fair price. I pay cash! Just cleaned today Barbara was my hygienist I dig people who love their work and she does. I also got the advanced oral cancer screening. Ask for the gas the air we breath could stand a little more in the atmosphere nitrogen edifies..

Laura King (Source: Facebook)


I swear I could spend all day here. They put my anxiety riddled butt in that chair, give me a little gas and turn on the food network and I’m good to go…and I hate the dentist! Five stars aren’t enough

Farrallus Fitch (Source: Google)


I have been coming to TLC off and on for over 10 years and I must say they are the best. When it comes to listening, making sure you’re not in any pain and being very kind this is the place. Oh and let’s not forget about the wonderful laughing gas they provide, I mean we all need that, Lol. If you are looking for a dentist that will be honest and provide great care please do yourself a service and call to make an appointment, you will be in the best hands. Everyone there is super nice and sweet with lots of positive energy. Hands down the BEST!! I honestly thought I hit 5 stars the first time so I had to come back and correct my stars, lol. 5 stars all around.

The name says it all. My first appointment was on 11/24/20 and my previous dental office had not sent X-rays as requested. I was distressed with this last minute situation, but the technician stepped up and quickly took a full set of X-rays. The cleaning and exam were completed by Dr. Patel and her assistants Katie and Poni. I certainly received Tender Loving Care at this Sandy Springs office
Thank you

Yelina Y. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)


I started coming here about 3 years ago after a recommendation from a coworker. I am petrified (hyperventilate) of the dentist after a childhood incident where I wasn’t fully numb and the drill went into my gums. When I made the first appointment, I expressed my fears and was assured that they would do everything they could to make it a pleasant and quick experience. The office staff are very friendly and the exam room has two TV screens: in front of you and on the ceiling. They give you the remote control, headphones, and I even got a blanket. I was offered laughing gas (no charge), to which I immediately said yes to. The hygienist stepped away for about 10 mins and when she came back to do my cleaning, I was in la-la land. I could still comprehend everything around me but felt very relaxed and just wanted to close my eyes. When she was done, she turned the oxygen back on and I was able to get up and walk out within a few minutes. TLC is a large office – they have quite a few exam rooms in their building but I also really like their flexible hours – early mornings or late evenings on Mondays. Easy to make appointments and I always get reminders a day or two in advance via email and text.

I can’t say enough good things about Dental TLC.  They take care of everything.  They contact your insurance before your visit and take care of all of the paperwork.  I had a very bad experience at a dentist in the past and they have made sure that I am completely comfortable at every visit.  Now that I have been a patient for several years, they know exactly what I need before I get there.  They have a blanket waiting and immediately provide me with the sedation necessary to help me through the experience.  I often don’t even remember much.  They walk me out to my car (with a driver) when I’m done.  Ruthie (my hygienist, Poni (the assistant) and  Dr. Abbott (my dentist) get 10 thumbs up!  PS.  I drive all the way from Decatur to Sandy Springs to go to this office.

Tiffany S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have an insane fear of going to the dentist. Some people are afraid of clowns, for me it’s the dentist. But I truly love Dental TLC. I have had some really terrifying, unpleasant experiences with other dentists who just don’t understand how to, or care to, cater to people with extreme anxiety about dental procedures. The staff and doctors at Dental TLC are the best at what they do. They will baby you and make you feel as comfortable as possible. The laughing gas is always available and if you bring a driver they will give you a sedative to relax you if you’re having work done. They also have noise-cancelling headphones that you can wear if the sound of a drill makes you nervous. And with ‘street signs’ on their hallways with things like “Chill Ave” and “Mellow Street” (or something like that) they try really hard to create a calm atmosphere. Dr. Abbott is the friendliest dentist I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Always very positive and super knowledgeable about what he does. I had to have an extraction on a back tooth and I cried the entire time. He never made me feel even the slightest bit bad or embarrassed about it. He just wiped my tears as they fell and kept working. I so appreciate his level of sincerity and compassion and really could not say thank you enough to everyone who works at Dental TLC for working so hard to make going to the dentist a little bit easier for cry babies like me 🙂

My favorite group of people are at Dental TLC!  I have been a patient for several years and I have NEVER been disappointed.  I have referred several people and they have loved them as well.  The dentist office is high tech, the service is quick and inviting (and that is awesome since no one really likes going to dentist). And then MY hygienist RUTHIE is the greatest and I’m not saying that just because they give Free laughing gas 🙂  Thanks Dental TLC for keeping my smile beautiful!

Christina at the front desk is SO helpful every time I am there. She welcomes me with a warm smile and takes the time to explain everything to me. She breaks down my best options to be comfortable, take care of my needs, and use my insurance the best way possible. I am so grateful for her great customer service! I love the Dental TLC team and now half of my office uses them!

They have very friendly service. They tell you how much you’re going to pay before they treat you and give you an opportunity to reschedule if it’s more than you can afford. I love the transparent in their billing. I never get a surprise bill in the mail. They have a quick check-in process. You fill everything out on the computer and every time you come back to redo your information all you have to do is verify the information instead of starting all over again. They are quick as well. I always go during my lunch break and I get out within an hour. The dentist is very customer focus and cares a lot about his patients. When you go there it’s very apparent that he cares about you and not money. I’ve been with them for a few years now. I got their information from a coworker and I’m so glad that she referred me. This is the best dentist I’ve ever had! I try to tell everyone I know about this office which is why I decided to give a review so that people that I don’t know will know how much I’m satisfied with this office. Oh and they give you free laughing gas. I don’t use it but they’ve been doing that since I’ve been there as well.

Donna D. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


After moving out of state I returned home to Atlanta… I live far away from TLC, but I gladly drive much further to see Dr. Abbott and his professional/friendly staff. I have anxiety, and they make me feel comfortable without feeling judged. Heather and Ruthie are exceptional at what they do and make the experience so much more pleasant. I highly recommend this dental practice.

Melissa C. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I’m the kind of patient Dentists normally RUN from. I’ve had so much work on my teeth, from a child to present.  From extractions, chipping of jaw bones, braces that removed my enamel, gums cut, and Veneers.. All which eventually ruined my teeth..  I had put off the need for full dentures for a few years now, until I went to Dental TLC because I had an exposed nerve on one of my remaining teeth.  All of the staff were so understanding and supportive.. They never judged me, they only cared about making me as comfortable as possible and helping me be able to smile again without being so self conscious.  I never thought I’d be able to say I Love My Dentist until I met Dr. Abbott and his staff.  I’m still adjusting to my new dentures, but I did it! Thank you Dental TLC!!!!  And for the record, I LOVE MY DENTIST!!

I know what you’re thinking…cheap denistry, old tools, people in the waiting room with teeth falling out, etc… YOU COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG. High-tech office, friendly (I mean REALLY friendly) staff, knowledgeable and skilled dentists and hygienists, no wait (when you have an appointment), flexible hours, unbeatable prices, and best of all…anxiety relieving & free “laughing gas.” I will never go anywhere else. Ignore any reviews below 5 stars. These guys are the best. The real deal. No one will ever touch my teeth again. I came in with a mess of mouth, feeling super-embarrassed, and they made me feel like I a new woman. I actually look forward to my next appointment (no exaggeration necessary)! Just make the appointment. Stop putting it off because as I sit in this chair, I feel like I’m on vacation (it’s the gas, but still!)!

Aliyah A. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I discovered DTLC a few years ago, & now a bunch of my coworkers are also clients there. Every time I know someone who needs dental work, but is a bit scared of the dentist, I turn into DTLC evangelist – “Oh, I know a great dentist! You’ve got to go there!” I am known to dentists in general as _she who cannot be numbed_. When I had to have my wisdom teeth removed, it was done in a hospital under general anesthesia because the procedure would have been impossible otherwise. After having had a couple of attempted fillings ultimately leading to an extraction in which I writhed and screamed through every agonizing second, by the time I got to DTLC, I was pretty dentist-phobic. The very word “dentist” made me queasy. Most dentists dread me as much as I dread them, but patients like me are the bread & butter of DTLC. They specialize in terrified people who are accustomed to associating even minor dental work with blinding, excruciating pain. First, they know how to perform nerve blocks that other dentists don’t. These are the only people who have ever managed to get me numb with a shot. I remember being floored after my first experience – touching the numb part of my face – still in utter disbelief that a shot of Novocaine had actually worked. I’ve been a patient for years & I have a routine with them. Whenever I go in for any procedure, even if it’s just a check-up, I get stoned off my butt on nitrous, covered in a blanket, and I just lie back and listen to music / stare at the cooking channel while the dental staff go about their work. It’s actually an enjoyable experience. Yes, they are pricey. You’re going to shell out even if you have dental insurance, but it’s completely worth it for the chance to actually look forward to going to the dentist.

Michael B. from Kennesaw, GA (Source: Yelp)


I had a horrible tooth ache for the last few days and while i was at work i made a few phone calls to see if any one could get me in. Dental tlc was able to get me in. When i got there the girls at the front counter were very cheerfull and polite. When i was called back to be seen they tried to make me as comfortable as possible. When the doctor showed up he told me all of my options that i had. When I left there i was feeling alot better. This place is a long drive for me but if any one goes out of their way to help me i would be more than happy to go out of my way to give them my business and recomend them to every one i know. Thank you Casey. My experience there was awesome.
