Not just reactive! Preventative dentistry as well as corrective care. At our first family visit to Greentree Dr. Kear did a thorough examination of each of us. He identified the immediate issues, pending problems and some preventative procedures to bring myself, my wife and our two sons up to what he saw as a baseline level of care. It was a stunning difference from the level of care we received from a small practice in a neighboring county. The Greentree staff reviewed our insurance and Dr. Kear walked us through a prioritized list of corrective and preventative steps and what the costs would be. We worked that plan over the following two years. In the 5 years since, our dental care has been almost exclusively check-ups and cleanings because the quality of the care is so high. The hygienists they employee are warm, friendly, thorough and very careful (my personal thanks to Elizabeth – although my wife and sons speak just as highly about the care they have received). The office staff are personable, professional and flexible. The atmosphere is comfortable and very clean. They have the latest tools and training and when that is combined with their skill and experience it elevates Greentree Dental Group as a high-end service provider.

I have been going to Greentree Dental for over 10 years now. My family switched to them after I had issues with work our previous dentist had done. Greentree fixed all of the issues the previous dentist had caused and kept my teeth healthy. Their offices are clean, comfortable, easy to get to and park. The staff have always been friendly and kind as well. I suggest this group to all my friends and family.

I wanted to thank Dr. Kear and his team for providing wonder care and a safe environment during the Covid19 reopening. I had two appointments; one for cleaning and one for a crown. Greentree has taken every precaution to provide their clients a safe and comfortable office. I would recommend clients returning for their dental needs.

I look forward to my appointments at Greentree Dental! The office space is beautiful and the staff are all wonderful. Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Kear have great bedside manner as do all the hygienists and assistants. Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Kear have truly listened to me and have taken the time to work together to get me towards my goal smile.

Today was my new patient appointment and I couldn’t have been more impressed. From the time I booked the appointment till I arrived I was sent the appropriate amount of information via email and/or texts. Staff was courteous, professional + knowledgeable. The office itself is warm, inviting & very clean. Dr. Kear explained all aspects of what my dental plan would be. The appointment ran smoothly & on time. I recently switched dental practices & I couldn’t be happier with today’s experience. Highly recommend this practice. Thanks to all the staff who was involved with my visit. See you in 6 months!

I am so glad I found this dental office! From start to finish, everyone I interacted with was so nice. They did such a thorough job with my cleaning and this was the first time in awhile I didn’t experience any pain during a cleaning (I have some sensitive spots). They even got me an estimate from my insurance for some cosmetic dental work I wanted to get done while I was getting the cleaning. Highly, highly recommend them for your next dental appointment.

John M. from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this dental group ever since my previous dentist retired about 10 years ago. I’ve had numerous dental procedures done here, and each time the dentists, hygienists and staff always are caring, professional and good at getting it done right and with minimal discomfort. They are also good at working with insurance companies. I highly recommend Drs. Kear and Ferguson. Tammy is my hygienist and is nothing but super.

This is an EXTRAORDINARY practice from front to back. Front office staff are friendly & efficient – providing estimates “real time” of possible work that needs to be done after running it though your insurance so that you can make solid decisions. EVERY clinician – dentists, assistants, & hygienists, are cheerful, very cooperative & respectful of one another and the patient. It’s great to be around people who enjoy their job. This is a very well-led practice.

I went in for a consultation with Dr Kear. This was after visiting my dentist 3 days prior who wanted to remove a crown and do work on a tooth. Dr Kera advised me the tooth did not need immediate work, he wanted to follow the progress after prescribing a strong anti-cavity toothpaste. I was very comfortable with his advice ( actually thrilled!) and noticed how friendly all the employees were I came In contact with.

I can’t believe it’s taken almost 3 years for me to review Greentree! Even though I only see them every six months, the team here remembers me and my teeth and takes care of any issues I have. I trust the staff and their recommendations–they always put MY best interests first, not theirs. I’ve now been seen by both Dr. Kear and Dr. Ferguson and they’re both friendly and listen to my concerns. Elizabeth has been my hygienist pretty much the whole time and I could not ask for a better teeth caretaker. Plus, the staff at the front desk are friendly and everyone seems to truly love their job here. Before I started going to Greentree, I dreaded going to the dentist. At Greentree, not only do I not mind going, but I actually look forward to catching up with them. Unless I move, I will continue to put my teeth in the capable hands of the Greentree team.

We have been patients for about 3 years now and have loved the Greentree dental group. Our previous dentist had not been a great experience, but coming to this practice has been fantastic. Al of the hygienists are great! They are kind, well-informed, gentle, and are great with kids (my 5 and 7year old have loved it from the beginning). The reception staff are also kind, respectful, and super helpful. They always seem to be aware of my insurance and what is covered and what is not so I never end up with any “surprise” extra charges. And both Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Kear are great as well and do great work. I have referred several friends to them and they have loved them also. I can’t say enough good things about them. They really care about their patients.

I’ve been going to this dental office for years and have worked with both dentists and multiple hygienists. All are patient, understanding and attentive. They are careful to watch dental health but are not overzealous to do fillings, which I appreciate. About two years ago, when my son turned 3, we started taking him here too. And he actually likes the dentist! They are patient and kind with him and he’s had a great experience so far, including a filling, which could have been rough. Definitely recommend!

As always, my time spent at Greentree Dental was efficient with excellent service. My dental hygienist, Danielle, was very knowledgeable in her exam and cleaning of my teeth. She was also gentle and careful so I experienced absolutely no pain. I highly recommend Greentree Dental to anyone looking for a dentist. I see Dr. Jody Kear and my husband sees Dr. Doug Ferguson.

I wanted to sincerely thank Dr. Kear and Kristen for an experience beyond my expectations for getting a crown! I was very apprehensive about getting a crown, due to a bad experience from another dentist office several years ago. My dental hygienist Elizabeth assured me that it would be painless and done in one appointment. The process of getting my new crown yesterday was a pleasant and painless experience. It was all done in one day, within 2 hours and 30 minutes as promised. Everyone was friendly and explained the process throughout the procedure. The result was amazing! Fit is great and the color match was prefect. Thanks to the wonderful staff at Greentree Dental Group!

My 16 year old son and I have been coming here for years . They recently renovated and expanded their space and it is as nice as any dental office I’ve been in and I do site selection for my business! Both dentists are very kind and gentle and explain things Easy to understand The dental hygienist are awesome and I always leave glad I came to insure my teeth clean and no health issues !

My family and I lost our Dental Insurance through my company and we went without any dentistry for about 3 years. A friend of mine told me about the Dental Plan offered by Greentree Dental and I immediately called to sign up. Dental work does get expensive, especially when your mouth is older like mine, but this plan has made getting my family back to the dentist much easier financially. On top of that the service is excellent, Dr. Kear and his staff are top notch professionals as well as gentle and kind people. I just got a crown and a filling done and their state of the art equipment had me done in just about an hour and a half. All done, no follow up appointments needed and my bite feels as good as ever. I can’t speak highly enough about Greentree Dental. If you need a good dentist you should give these guys a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

I feel confident in the care which Greetree Dental provides. Their staff genuinely care about you as a person and perform top notch work. Dr. Kear takes the time to explain any concerns and describe the necessary procedures in a way that is easy to understand. I will continue to trust Greentree Dental with my oral care.

The entire staff at Greentree Dental Group is wonderful to work with. The front desk staff is friendly and the hygienists make every effort to put you at ease and are thorough in covering all your health needs. The doctors take the time to answer all your questions and partner with you in all dental care decisions. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for quality dental healthcare.

This place is fantastic! The entire staff is amazing and so helpful. The dentist is phenomenal as well. He fixed my gap and made it look brand new! I couldn’t believe it. I’ve been to many dentist offices and this one is by far the best. So welcoming, friendly and make you feel so comfortable. If your looking for a new dentist, this is the place to go!

Hannah H. from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Dr Kear at Greentree Dental for 2 years now. Prior to seeing him, I had put off going to the dentist at all for a few years because I was TERRIFIED of going! It always hurt! I would dread even getting my teeth cleaned. EVERYONE at this office is amazing- from the friendly front desk staff, to the knowledgeable and friendly hygienists, to the lab tech. I recently was in for a crown and a filling and my only complaint would be that the hygienists and dentist were making me laugh so much that they had to pause for me to hold still. 🙂 I am now fully recovered from my dental-work-phobia. I am able to get out of the chair without first wringing out my sweaty palms, and it feels GREAT!

Suzanne F. from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)


Greentree Dental Rocks. Our whole family is seen by them and have had an overwhelming positive experience. The staff- from the front desk all the way “up” to the Dr’s are personal, knowledgeable and through in their approach to each patient. Appointments are super easy to make and the front desk staff has always been able to work us into time slots that work for our schedules, even on short notice. Incredibly family friendly, they take an extra step in creating children days where different themes kids are familiar with help to ease what can be an intimidating situation….we’ve seen excitement in our children to go to the dentist due to these themed days [or parties]. We highly recommend Greentree dental group!

BEST dentist I have ever been to!!! They make you feel like family the moment you step in the door. Im terrible with names but the receptionist, assistants, and dentist was great. The hygentist that cleaned my teeth did an amazing job. Listened to me and took it easy on me since my last dentist was forever ago. My teeth look great again!

Roy Lewis (Source: Google)


Have been going here for years!!! (20 years) Went to another dentist once when I was living elsewhere (about 10 years ago) and they said I needed many fillings… THANK GOODNESS I moved back in time to go back here!!! Greentree confirmed I was NOT in need of any work!!! For me, they are out of network but it is 100% worth it!!! You do not need to look any further… I say, call today if you are in need of a dentist!!!

As somebody who has had insane anxiety going to dentists, I cannot stress enough how amazing this dental group is. All of the staff and the dentists are amazing people who provide you a safe, comforting experience the entire time you’re with them. A truly judgement free zone, their focus is entirely on keeping you educated as well as getting you healthy. I had avoided dentists for years, and have been to this dentist 4 times in the past two months. My anxiety is all but gone, and I can’t begin to express how grateful I am to have this wonderful team of professionals on my side as I work to regain health and control of my teeth. Thank you Greentree!

Ellen A. from Westerville, OH (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for more than 30 years. The best in customer service. Both Dr Ferguson and Dr Kear take time to make teeth beautiful, match, and efficient. My pain or discomfort is taken very seriously and managed quickly. Whenever I am receiving “bad news” they are gentle in delivery, honest, and helpful. I have recommended them to my family and many friends.

I started going to see Dr. Kear back in 2013 for my Invisalign. He soon then became my permanent doctor for all of my dental needs. All of the doctors, hygienists, and staff have been nothing less than wonderful to work with. They are considerate of your time, and most importantly the focus on what is in your best interest. I always feel welcome, and in a way like a part of the Greentree family. I would highly recommend them!

Mary Byrne King (Source: Facebook)


I prefer GDG because I have some anxiety and each office has a very open feeling with floor to ceiling windows that overlook hibiscus, hydrangea and lavender and it’s on a flight path so you can watch planes while listening to great music. Dr Kear has a very calm presence and is very knowledgeable, particular and always learning about new steps in dentistry. Their lab is in-house so your tooth is digitally photocopied and crowns are precisely made while you wait(so cool). The doctors and hygienists often check on your comfort level with “How are you doing?”. The best part of my visit is the thorough cleaning that I get from the hygienists at GDG(like the old pearl drops commercial).

Everyone at Greentree Dental is so professional, yet very kind and friendly. They employ all the latest technology so that crowns are made without long sessions in the chair. They have always been prompt to the appointment time, except once when someone had an emergency. So, excellent practice, in all ways!! I highly recommend it for anyone!

My experience with Greentree Dental was fantastic on January 31st 2020. Elizabeth the assistant was very friendly and we had a pleasant conversation throughout my teeth cleaning. I definitely recommend people to go to Greentree Dental. I have not had a bad experience once and I have been going there for as long as I can remember.

I had a cleaning done yesterday and never once was I concerned about contracting COVID-19. They have patients wait in the car until their appointment time, they require patients to wear masks, checked my temperature right when I walked in, everyone in the office had on masks and they have air purifiers running. During my cleaning, Elizabeth, was wearing a mask, scrub cap, eye protection and a face shield. I felt very safe! Elizabeth did such a great job and had a positive attitude the whole time I was there. Love coming to this office because the staff is so wonderful and caring!

We recently relocated to Columbus from a different state, and was referred by one of my friends who has been a loyal customer of Greentree Dental Group for years. They are so patient and nice when I tried to schedule appointment for my first visit. The actual visit was equal pleasant, clean facility, friendly employee, very knowledgeable Doctors. My 5 year old son had extensive experience (very bad memory) with his teeth early of this year, he was very nervous and afraid when he came to see the dentist. Everyone in the office made him feel so comfortable, and easy, he even told me” I like this place” after his appointment. We are so glad we choose this group and look forward to the wonderful experience for our future visits (both my son and myself have some filling work need to be done).

I don’t know many people that look forward to going to the dentist but my daughter and I love to visit Dr Kear and his staff every 6 months! She has been going since she was 4 (5 years) and I have been a patient for over 15 years. The entire staff is very friendly and really seem to care about us. They are usually waiting on us to walk in the door. The office is always very clean. We both look forward to our “after-visit” rewards: our new toothbrushes, the kid’s treasure chest and a special selection of Keurig coffee! If you really care about your oral health, these professionals are just who you need to make your mouth shiny and clean!

We switched to Greentree Dental Group over a year ago and are very happy with their practice. I just had my six month appointment & I appreciate their gentleness when working in my mouth. They are always up front about the cost of services & are willing to work with you to promote your oral health. It is friendliest dental office I have experienced since my youth! Thanks to Dr. Kear and your wonderful staff!

I started at Greentree just because I heard about some pro bono work Dr. Kear had done, but after experiencing their work, I decided the whole family should be going there, and we remain pleased with the practice. Dr. Ferguson noticed I was grinding my teeth at night and had a mouth guard created for me that has prevented the grinding. Excellent dental work and excellent customer service.
