I’ve been seeing both Dr.Nguyen and Dr.Delassen for about 2 years at Exceptional Dental. I am about to start clear correct aligners this week, 1. Because I’ve always wanted to correct my crowded teeth and 2. It is medically recommended due to possible issues I’ll have in the future if I don’t correct my bite. Every cleaning, exam, etc. that I have had at this office has been nothing short of comfortable and accommodating. The techs answer all of my somewhat annoying questions and the doctors are friendly and informative. The office always feels very clean and updated which is my preference for any office I walk into because it tells me that they care about how comfortable their clients are. The girls up front get the job done and frankly they don’t need to hear about my life story and vice versa so I think they are excellent. They also answer my annoying questions without complaint. I am very nervous to start the aligner treatment but I know that I can trust that Exceptional Dental will take care of me through the journey.

I have been going to Exceptional Dental for over five years. Even though I live out of town I still come back when I’m in town to visit my parents. They offer fantastic services. The staff is easy going and friendly, the clinic itself is warm and inviting and very clean. Dr. Delassen and his staff always make me feel at ease in the chair. I Highly recommend them.

Dr Delassen and Dr Nguyen are both absolutely incredible and amazing. I have been a patient with them for the past 6 to 7 years and I cannot speak anything but good of them. They are extremely attentive and caring. They don’t treat you like just another patient. They make the setting very calming and relaxing. Stella, a dental assistant, is absolutely incredible also. She is highly compassionate and caring towards her patients. I would highly recommend them.

I can’t say enough about Exceptional Dental. I’m not one who loves going to the dentist, but not sure anyone really does. But they make you feel so comfortable and will work with any fears you may have. Plus, they serve wine. I mean that alone will calm me down some when I get there. The office is really upscale. The staff is so friendly! Dr. Delassen is very thorough, down to earth and will explain everything. They really do out of their way to make you feel comfortable about the experience. It’s convenient to my work and home. Hours are workable too as they stay open late on Mondays and Tuesdays. And they serve wine! How can you not love that!

12/20/2019We took our daughter who is 22 months old and the doctor was truly exceptional. The entire staff was so welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. We will be moving the whole family to this office. Service is excellent from the time you walk in the door until you leave. 12/21/2020 we brought our daughter back who is now almost 3 and the doctor could not have made her feel comfortable. Doc had a “magic light” that kept her laughing and forgetting her fear of the dentist. The hygienist was so sweet and friendly when cleaning her teeth. We will absolutely bring our son here as well. The entire staff is professional, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend bringing your little ones here!

Exceptional Dental is by far the best dental office I have ever been to. The office is very clean and comfortable, and makes you feel like you’re at home. The staff at Exceptional Dental are the most caring people I have ever encountered out of any of my experiences with a dentists office. If you’re like me, and are scared going to the dentist, then this is the place for you. You are given a full exam and all of your options are presented to you as well as the cost for each procedure. The dental work I received was the best price I have found and by far produced the best results. The staff here is very knowledgeable, and will take excellent care of you. You have to try this place out for yourself. It will not disappoint you at all!

I just had my new patient exam and x-rays at Exceptional Dental earlier this week and it was really a great experience. The ladies at the front desk were so nice and made sure to greet me,get me going with my paperwork, and get me checked in really quickly even though they seemed like they were crazy busy. I was brought back by the Dr’s Assistant Ashley who was awesome right from the start. We did the x-rays right away and all the while she was making sure I was comfortable and made everything really quick and easy. I saw Dr Delassen for my exam and he was an absolute pleasure. Easy to talk to and straight forward about the treatment I needed. None of them were pushy at all and I just felt really good about the visit. I cant wait for my cleaning. I would recommend Exceptional Dental 100%.

Best service. Always on time with appointments and all the staff are very generous and caring. Staff makes it a point to establish a good rapport with customers and put their best foot forward. I absolutely love going to this professional top-notch dentist. The doctor is amazing and kind and patient and does absolutely meticulous and impeccable work.

I rarely leave reviews unless the service is exceptionally good or bad. In this case Exceptional Dental of St. Petersburg really earned that title. They are warm and friendly and make you feel like a part of the family (I’ve been once). Unbelievably professional, amazing services, very technologically up to date, the best and newest of everything, and extraordinarily knowledgeable. They offer you wine and if you have to wait for someone after your appointment you can sit in an incredible full body massage chair while you wait. They really care for you and your needs. Best dentist I’ve ever been to. I’m actually excited to go back and I always hated to go to the dentist!

Jacquelyn D. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Hi! My name is Jackie Davis, and I’m exceptionally grateful for the experience to come and visit the office with my class for the free dental care provided by all the staff at Exceptional Dental. Everyone was so sweet and kind for letting my classmates and myself get coaching provided by the Doctors and staff. Thank you for the wonderful experience, and reality check from Dental School to a real life patient practice. Warm Regards to you all.

Lonnie K. from St Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I arrived for my appointment 10 minutes early. I was greated and seen AHEAD of time. This is the first time in my medical or dental experience I have ever been seen early for an appointment. This office is always on time. It’s staff is professional. My assistant Lucy was friendly, informative, and attentive. The cosmetic work I had done was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I can’t stress enough how huge the difference was between the work I had done at exceptional dental and the work I had done at my last dental office. The results were stunning. It doesn’t hurt that the office is clean, beautiful, and comfortable. Thank you!

I have never had a better dental experience than the ones I’ve had at Exceptional Dental. Generally, I dread the dentist, but I’m always at ease here. I couldn’t believe how quickly and pain free Dr. Delassen filled my cavities. Kristie is the best hygienist I’ve had at any dental office, her cleanings are 100% pain free and my teeth felt super clean.

Annie V. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Scheduled an appointment at Exceptional Dental because I was on the market for a new dentist and wanted to get my teeth cleaned before a trip (I know this sounds weird, but very true). They actually squeezed me in for an early appointment for a cleaning, got the standard x-rays with the dental assistant, and then a deep cleaning with the hygienist Monika. The service at this dentist office is top notch, the staff is very friendly, and they do not make you feel awkward (which some offices do make you feel a little uncomfortable for some reason). If you are on the market for a nice cleaning, make an appointment and request for Monika! She is very gentle, super sweet, and knows her stuff. She is the best hygienist in town hands down!! The office also accepts insurance, but out of pocket expense is not terrible either.

Rebecca K. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was here twice this week. I’m a new patient. Didn’t experience any of the stuff in the bad reviews. I’ll be back and I’ve already shared their contact info with a friend looking for a referral. Please note, folks, if you call for an appointment as a new patient this does not involve a cleaning. They don’t tell you it does. So if you want one, you should ask. I asked and the hygienist had time so I got a cleaning on my first visit. She was thorough and gave me some great tips on improving my daily routine. No exaggeration, this is the cleanest my teeth have been. Ever. I had a filling replaced two days later by Dr. Delassen. He was great. The procedure was 100% pain free. I’m a serious white-knuckler, too. As for billing, they gave me detail in advance of the second appointment. There were no surprises. I found the desk staff to be helpful and professional. I’ll be back in six months for another cleaning.

Sandy G. from Naperville, IL (Source: Yelp)


My first two experiences with Exceptional Dental have gone perfectly. They even send a restaurant gift card as a thank you to the person that referred them. The beautiful surroundings and music in the foyer don’t hurt either! Christy was very gentle and informative as well. I highly recommend Exceptional Dental and Orthodontics!

Chris R. from Valrico, Tampa Bay, FL (Source: Yelp)


The staff is very friendly from making the appointment to when you check in to checking out they really make you feel like your welcomed and that they care. Going to the dentist is kind of scary because of the drills and needles but the staff and the doctors really comfort you and make sure that your taken care of. It’s a boutique feel with a warm and friendly setting. They explained the treatment and what I needed to do. The service at this practice is exceptional.

Christopher N. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


This place is like a spa for your teeth. The decor is high end and comfortable. Going to the dentist has never been a comfortable experience. I don’t feel uncomfortable coming here. I’ve been highly satisfied with the dental work I’ve gotten here. Patrick Sexton is confident in his work and my results are deserving of that confidence. The other staff are very nice and easy to talk to. I’ve referred a few of my friends here.

Rebecca Mullen (Source: Google)


They have massage chairs and wine! I love that they made my oral maintenance as bougie as the rest of my maintenance. Hello me time! They are always welcoming, informative, flexible, and professional. They never try to take advantage by having us complete unnecessary procedures. Fair prices and works directly with my insurance. My 5 year old looks forward to our visits. I love them!

Tegan Wolfe (Source: Google)


This dental office is amazing! I’ve had 3 appointments so far and everyone I’ve interacted with is super friendly, helpful, and professional. Dr. Delassen genuinely cares about your teeth and you as a human being – he’s always made me feel at ease. He never seems in a hurry to get to the next patient and is always willing to sit with you and answer questions or consider other options. Today I came in for one thing and ended up switching to a different treatment that not only solved two problems, but was also more affordable for me. I feel confident in their care and am very happy I found them.

Kevin M. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to see Dr. Delassen for almost four years and have always gotten great service and great results. He and his staff provide great dental care in a great setting. I am writing this because my most recent event was an emergency, I had a terrible toothache and I called to see if they could get me in that day. I received a call back from Dr. Delassen himself a few minutes after leaving a message! He got me in later that day and diagnosed me as needing a root canal on tooth #3, which he had recommended I do at my last visit over four months previous. So even though I did not follow up on his recommendation he took care of me and got me taken care of. I am humbled and appreciative of his service.

Rebecca G. from Allendale Park/Five Points, Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Very happy! After my dentist retired, whom I had been with since a young child, I was very nervous about finding a new one. The whole staff at exceptional dental was fantastic. No nonsense, no surprises, down to earth and great service. The office is clean and comfortable. You can tell they invest in tools to help them do their job better and help me as a patient see and understand my detail health. I’m very happy with my experience and I’m also very happy to have a primary dentist again!

Nicole Brydon (Source: Facebook)


Exceptional Dental is exactly that. From the moment you walk in, you’re in the hands of true professionals who genuinely care and it shines through in everything. From the front desk staff, to the dentist, to the remarkable hygienist Jesse who is warm and compassionate and takes the time to explain the how & why of every step. Their facility is not only beautiful but incredibly clean and quite comfortable, without a doubt far more then you’d expect from a dental practice. As someone with a dental phobia, I can say that every effort is made to ensure your comfort and put any fears to rest. I simply could not imagine a better experience. Well done Exceptional Dental! And thank you.

Nothing less than professional service across the board. Seriously impressed with their delicate treatment of a medically challenged family member. He is unable to be treated without a family member present and they have accommodated us on every visit. I would not go anywhere else. They also do great work, which I can personally attest to since I am also a patient and have had more than a full year of dental work completed by Dr Delassen. Awesome dentist. Shines at his craft.

I have been so pleased with the care and professionalism of this dental office. They go above and beyond in friendliness, bedside manner, cleanliness of the office and amenities. I am most impressed with their adaptation to digital office management, patient confidentiality and records handling. I continue referring others who have all been equally happy.

Kaitlyn C. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist in the Tampa Bay Area hands down. I have referred over 10 people to their office & my friends/coworkers cannot thank me enough. Not only is the office beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing they have THE BEST staff. They are funny, social, and so talented at what they do. If you have any fear of the dentist this is the place for you. The atmosphere is spa like so you do not feel like you are in a dentist office at all and the amazing dentist and techs here talk to you throughout the whole precedure as if your catching up with an old friend. I have had a crown replaced 3x throughout the tampa bay area and it has NEVER fit correctly! After it fell off the 3rd time i just left the tooth exposed. I informed exceptional dental that i did not want it replaced because i have had too many bad experiences – and they promised me differant – I am so happy they did! I now have a crown that looks 100% like a tooth, feels like a tooth, and fits so perfect i cannot tell which tooth its on! Their equipment is top of the line, they have 3d exrays and big tv screens which they display your teeth on – they even show you the cavity in color on your teeth! I can go on & on about how amazing Exceptional Dental is… Just book your appointment & I promise you will LOVE IT !

Really trying to fathom how anyone goes here and has such a horrible experience.. to the point where they have to write a review. Well, my experience has been so positive, that it made me write my first review. I never have an issue using my insurance, setting an appointment, or getting work done. I have had least 5 appointments here – routine cleanings and having some cavities handled by the wonderful Dr. Delassen. I have had my fair share of dentist experiences, and Exceptional Dental lives up to its name, being the most exceptional! I am not the most terrified of the dentist, but like I’ve stated, I’ve had my fair share of rudeness, incompetence, and remember leaving places either in pain or completely dissatisfied. Their office is very up-to-date with equipment, so when you enter, you don’t feel as though you’re going back in time to the 70s. I find the staff and hygienists to be very friendly, professional, and they do their job well. On specific occasions when I had to have a few fillings, Dr. Delassen was extremely patient, kind and professional. If you are a little nervous about the dentist at all, he has a great temperament that will aid in making you feel more comfortable while there. He was very patient scheduling the fillings on days that worked best with my work schedules. I am very glad to have found a dentist office where I can relax and know that all dental work to come my way in the future will be handled by the very best.

This is the only dentist that I’ve been to that hasn’t led to me being in pain for two weeks after a cleaning. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Dellassen has done an amazing job on my awful teeth . I went in knowing that my teeth were in terrible shape and they set me up with a treatment plan that I found affordable and reasonable. I don’t understand why some people have posted such negative reviews on here, it really is an exceptional office with an exceptional staff.

Cody C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Just moved to the area, so had to get my doctors lined up. Found this place and… TLDR: They live up to their name. I am not great in the dental chair and I needed a laundry list of issues resolved. They scheduled it so everything could be done at the same time, and explained their sedation-dentistry technique to me. For a first timer, it sounded excellent. I really enjoyed my experience on that day. We’ve since sent a number of people and no one has anything bad to say. I quite like their discount program. It has saved us a ton already. It’s better than the dental insurance my work offers.

I totally agree with a previous reviewer: “Exceptional is the key word here.” This is my second visit and I looked forward to the personable, competent staff. Best of all, I am so thankful for Dr. Delassen’s very effective treatment of my jaw/muscle pain. Further, it is rare in my experience to find a dentist who has a positive, supportive “bedside” manner in addition to his competence. I highly recommend this practice.

This is without a doubt the best Dentist in Saint Petersburg! The entire staff goes out of their way to be “exceptional” in every aspect of your care and the best part is nothing is too complicated for this team! They go out of their way to work with you to try to fix thing right without price gouging on the way. So if you’re looking for your new family Dentist look no further!! These guys have hours that work for everyone!!

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


This is a dental office that knows who their patients are as soon as they walk in. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen. The way they have handled my orthodontic work has been impeccable. Their ability to put you at ease and help you understand what it is they are doing in layman’s terms is very helpful. The staff always seems pleasant and eager to please. I have never worried about my insurance as they have handled everything for me. They were very fair and accomodating with their payment plan for my braces.

Megan C. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Exceptional Dental goes above & beyond to make me feel comfortable! I love how the hygienists listen to me and make it a priority to reduce my fears about tooth sensitivity. Also, the office and patient rooms are beautiful. Everything from the decor (candles!), to the music, to the extra considerations like water, caffeine, and vino being available make this team stand out. Thank you!

So few words to describe the level of excellence this place provides. I have come here for over 5 years and the experience is always above any expectation I might have. Their quality service and simplicity along the modern vibes in the air can only make you feel as if you were in relaxation center. Not once I came here and didn’t walk out of the door feeing refresh. You can only try for yourself and not doing so might just be a mistake. I highly recommend exceptional dental. @saenzmason owner of Saenz artistic mason serv.

Dr Jan Delassen and his team are the best ever! I have a severe dental phobia, and they are the only dental team ever to work with me in such a positive, supportive manner. Super long post, when I read a review I really like to hear what happened. So, here’s the short story …. This is an awesome, friendly office! They serve wine! They worked with me on my dental phobia and my sensitive teeth, were transparent in their billing, and never, ever did anything to make me like I was rushed through or forced into treatment. Now, for the long story …. I have had horrible dental experiences through out the years with difficulty getting numb and staying numb, pain during procedures and cleaning, childhood dentists yelling at me during my procedures, dental accidents occurring while I was in the chair, and inability to open my mouth for months after a simple filling (twice!). I, on a weird and rare whim, called Exceptional Dental and was able to get an appointment the next evening (they stay late on Mondays and Tuesdays). I had heard they were good from a co-worker and that they served wine. My first appointment impressions: The waiting room was very upscale. I almost felt like I was going to a spa instead of the dentist. I was greeted immediately, and she seemed to magically know who I was. Yeah, I know there’s a computer there and it’s not hard to figure it out, but I received a warm, friendly greeting and not the cold, typical doctor’s office “sign in here” greeting. I only waited a few minutes even with me arriving 10 minutes early. I had a 3D oral scan and 2D xrays done. Apparently the 3D scan is to examine the bone structure which is something a 2D xray can’t do. I was only billed $60 for it and it was covered 100%. Then I was offered the wine! Ahhh…. I needed it! What I really loved about the first visit, was that he and his assistant really took their time in explaining things and they were very friendly and professional. I had a thorough medical history taken before we started the oral exam. Unfortunately I found out that had a few common dental issues; however, what he discovered didn’t surprise me. He was able to show me what he found and correlated it to the xrays that were on the screen in front of me. In the past, other dental teams would be abrasive and rude. Neither one used that tone with me, but instead mentioned how common these issues were and showed me the proper techniques and made recommendations for correcting them. Since I mentioned that I had a dental phobia, his assistant reassured me how common this was and asked me if I wanted to proceed with the cleaning. And while it may sound weird to those who don’t understand, it’s not unusual for someone with a dental phobia to prefer a separate cleaning later. But never did they say they wouldn’t do a cleaning as many of the reviews mention. She took her time doing the cleaning, and stopped and numbed my gums when I started to hurt – cleanings have always hurt my sensitive teeth but never has an assistant expressed concern and took the time to make sure I was comfortable the way she did. Now I do need two separate cleanings, but the reasoning behind this approach was thoroughly explained and understandable/reasonable. When I left, I scheduled my next two appointments. They provided a estimate of the cost of my services before scheduling anything. What they charged was extremely reasonable! No problems with my insurance… what they billed matched up with my insurance claim. Never, ever did I feel pressured. Over the next week, I panicked about my procedures and decided I needed some nitrous for them. So, I go in and ask more questions, explain the whole dental phobia in detail and never felt rushed. He had her put in my notes to have a glass of wine waiting for me when I arrive and to schedule extra time for me! They were completely transparent in the cost of the nitrous. On the day of my procedure, I was met with a glass of wine as promised. The staff were cool with me bringing my husband to rub my feet and hold my hand – it was non issue with them. I had headphones to drown out the drill noise and sunglasses so I didn’t have to squint…. They really did make sure I was comfortable before proceeding. Both were awesome in being supportive through out my whole procedure. He numbed my gums before injecting the numbing medicine and his technique for injections is awesome! Barely felt it. He frequently checked to make sure I was ok. He gave additional injections as needed as the medicine wore off. And he took his time, I never felt as though he was rushed, and I got the breaks I needed. This has been the best dental experience ever! Usually I rely upon yelp for helping me to choose places to go, and I’m so glad I didn’t let the star rating here keep me from going. I thankfully had a referral from a co-worker who loves this place, and really I can’t see why this place doesn’t have a full 5 star rating.
