Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Skinner and staff are top notch. I moved from Cleveland, OH in 2004 and my biggest concern was finding a new dentist that I trusted. He is considerate and explains any issues thoroughly. My husband and I both use him and when my 82 year old mother came to live with us, she went to Dr. Skinner. He was kind and patient with her at all times. He has a a very clean and nice office and every dental room has a view of garden. They also play the best music! Also, hygienist Liz is amazing and very thorough! She made me very comfortable and was very professional and kind. Though Sheila and Stephanie are also great! No matter what you make appointment for, you will be well taken care of from check-in to check-out!

I met dr skinner when he himself answered my call to his office first thing in the morning after a night of wisdom tooth pain. Since then have been a patient. i can honestly say i enjoy his office, staff, Hygienist + Dr skinner himself more than any other dental office in my life. He has such a great personality and is full of energy! Thankyou for the awesome service!

My family and I have been clients of Doctor Skinner since he started in Tampa. I am so happy and fortunate to have found him. My whole family loves him and his staff. Just wonderful! You could not possibly find better care. Love these guys!

I have been using Doc Skinner as my dentist since he opened the doors on Ehrlich Rd. I am 100% satisfied with him, his professionalism, his staff- second to none, and the cleanliness of the whole office. He takes the time to fully explain what he see’s and all the options each and every time I have come in. I have had the same hygienist, Sheila, for years and appreciate her and her humor especially when “I can’t speak”… The office has numerous exterior window view landscapes and water falls which is very relaxing, totally relaxing, see for yourself.

Just moved to the area so needed to find a new dentist. Office staff was extremely friendly as was the doctor. I was able to get x-rays, exam, and cleaning in under 30 minutes. I’ve been to numerous different dentists over the years and have never had as easy and positive experience than I have at Dr. Skinner’s office.

Linda O. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Skinner for almost 11 years. I am so grateful to have met him when I moved to Tampa and needed a new dentist. He is so skilled at all aspects of dentistry including cosmetic. He has helped me with veneers and crowns and his work is perfection! The standards of his practice and technology are of the highest caliber. Thank you Dr. Skinner and your staff for the work that you do! You’re the best!

I’ve spent time living in various parts of the Bay Area, which means that things like my dentist, our vet, my barber weren’t necessarily located super close to where I *currently* live. Every 6 months, I’d head down to South Tampa to see the same dentist I’d been to for years and every time I’d make that trek down Dale Mabry, I’d swear that I’d find a new dentist in the Carrollwood area. But laziness would creep in and I’d just stick it out, only for the cycle to repeat itself. But finally, I switched to a dentist near me and I’m so glad I did. I found Dr. Skinner by cross-examining a list of providers with my insurance and Yelp reviews. These fine folks took my insurance and had a great rating… but most importantly, were only located like 2 miles from my house. Win, win win! Most people don’t like going to the dentist, but I enjoy the feeling of getting my mouth refreshed. My cleaning was about what you’d expect in that department. For the last year at my old dentist, I’d complain about pain on a certain tooth and they just kept telling me that there was absolutely no evidence that something needed to be fixed there. I thought that was kind of weird, because it definitely hurt, but they insisted it was fine. Dr. Skinner immediately identified that an old filling was loose and that he could definitely fix that. After my 2nd visit, I can finally chew on the left side of my mouth again! My favorite part of this office are the giant windows that look into the garden outside. It’s a nice change from the typical, sterile environment you find at the dentist. As long as I live in the area, I’ll be a patient here for the foreseeable future!

This is the first dentist I am NOT scared to go to! Dr. Skinner and staff (especially Sheila my hygienist) are compassionate, warm, and genuinely care about you, as a patient. They answer all your questions and take their time. Its a 45 minute drive for me from New Port Richey, but I would not go anywhere else. I highly recommend Dr. Skinner.

Elaine Sison (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Skinner’s dental office should be called a dental spa! The atmosphere is relaxing and a friendly environment! My family and I are patients of 10 years and would highly recommend his office! Our dental treatments and cleaning have been outstanding! Sheila our hygienist is thorough and gentle at the same time! As a patient you will be warmly welcomed as a friend and each treatment is explained in details which will put your mind to ease! Love the staff, love the dental spa!!!!

Janessa H. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I originally made an appointment here because they were the only ones I found that took my insurance, and it turns out I found a great dentist. They are very timely, I am never waiting in the waiting room for longer than a few minutes. Dr. Skinner is very kind and attentive. Going to the dentist always sucks but they make it pretty enjoyable!

JP T. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve hated going to the dentist my entire life. A few years ago I moved to Tampa and was in need of a new dentist and discovered Dr. Skinner. Now, at age 28, I finally don’t mind going to the dentist. In fact, I love going! The entire office staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. Dr. Skinner is great, performs excellent work, and keeps you informed the entire time he’s working. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. If you’re looking for a new dentist… these people are the perfect choice. Thank you, Dr. Skinner & team!

Just finished up all my mouth work fillings, crowns, flawless procedures. I am horrified of things in my mouth and Dr. Skinner and his team have made it the most comforting experience. Very knowledgeable and will explain everything to you in great detail. Seriously if your dental insurance isn’t accepted here CHANGE YOUR DENTAL INSURANCE, I promise you it is worth it.

Nicole B. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skinner and his staff are wonderful! Sheila has been my hygienist for years and I refer everyone to this practice. Every person I’ve referred has been equally impressed. The staff does all they can to make the visit painless and thorough. I can’t say enough good things about everyone there.

Louise S. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


My daughter recommended that I see Dr. Skinner for a check up, as I wasn’t thrilled with my current dentist.  At Dr. Skinner’s, I was greeted in a friendly, yet professional way, waited for no more than 10 minutes (I was filling out paperwork), and had a panoramic x-ray (something I hadn’t had in YEARS).  I was then led by Sheila, the hygienist and had a very thorough cleaning and bitewing x-rays.  Dr. Skinner examined my teeth and recommended a preventative measure for my gumline recession.  At the following visit, he did the procedure with minimal discomfort (I hate shots!), and explained everything he did and why it was a good idea.  I’m completely happy with this practice!

P M. from San Antonio, FL (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE this place!!!  If you want to feel totally comfortable and confident with your experience, this is the place!  Relaxing surroundings, courteous and caring professional staff.  Dr Skinner is the most competent, caring and friendly dentist I have ever had the….dare I say pleasure…to visit.

My dentist of 30 years retired and I was on a journey to find my next dentist. After visiting several of Tampa’s finest dentist I have found my home with Dr Skinner and his amazing office staff. They start the day very early. I have called at 7.30 expecting to get a recording and Dr Skinner answered the phone himself! Not only did he assist me but he sounded happy to do so! Lol He has a very professional group of co-workers and they all are smiling and professional at 8am! I have been going there for a year now and the experience is always the same! I am so happy to have found this group of lovely people

This was my first appointment with Dr. Skinner. It was a great experience. Great staff! Awesome office….Chairs put the patient in position to view their own personal garden…..get you Zen on! 🙂 The whole place is done well and the staff is very cool. My hygienist continually checked on my comfort level. Thanks Dr Skinner and staff!

Dr. Skinner and his entire team are exceptional! After much research to find the best local dentist, I chose him for a complex repair to two badly broken teeth. I simply could not be happier with the service Dr. Skinner provided and have decided to move my entire family to his practice. My front teeth are literally better than they were before my accident and even I cannot tell what he fixed and what is original enamel. Dr. Skinner is personable, professional, and a highly competent perfectionist.

My husband has been coming here for years and always had good things to say. I just had my second visit with Doctor Skinner and he does not disappoint! Very caring and knowledgeable, explains everything he’s doing and makes you feel comfortable. I was nervous about getting a tooth pulled but he got it out before I even realized what happened, I didn’t feel a thing! Also, it’s super affordable. We have dental insurance but the out-of-pocket costs are much cheaper than another dentist who gave us estimates for what we needed done. All around fantastic experience. Thank you!

George S. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


A great Dental practice. Dr. Skinner is great, explains everything as he goes along so you are never surprised. His staff is excellent. Super professional and caring. Today even though I showed up a week too early for a crown, and I had some pain , they tracked down where my permanent crown was in transit , and fit me in as soon as it arrived, that same afternoon. You can’t beat that. My Thanks to Dr. Skinner and his staff.

Don F. from Muscatine, IA (Source: Yelp)


From Iowa and had a cap fall off my front tooth while visiting my son.  Dr. Skinner’s staff was outstanding and got me in the next morning.  He was very personable and got me glued back together, so I could eat again.  Very professional operation and he will be my son’s dentist.  The doctor has a accent, being from Alabama, but he is easy to understand.  Truly liked the guy.

Dr. Skinner and staff have helped me in my recovery from addiction.In the past year they have done amazing in helping me get back my smile and confidence.They have also always made a way for me to be seen during a dental emergency, Thank You!!

I had a great experience with Dr. Skinner, and have switched to him as my primary dentist! I had been experiencing severe tooth pain and called in on a whim, and I am very glad that I did. From the initial telephone call, which was answered by Dr. Skinner, to the procedure , my experience was pleasant. Not to mention the beautiful ambiance of the fountains while you are in the chair. I then went back for my semi-annual cleaning and my dental hygienist was a delight. She was very personable and thorough with my cleaning. I would highly recommend this dental practice.

The best dentist my wife and I have ever had! Dr Skinner is very friendly, and Liz (our hygienist) is a delight! Also, in the teeth cleaning area, rather than just having harsh fluorescent lights, the back wall is all glass and outside it they have a calming garden that lets in tons of natural light, making the whole space feel much more relaxing. A 10/10 dentist experience we haven’t been able to find anywhere else.

Nikki W. from West Tampa, Tampa Bay, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for a couple of years now. The drive is almost 45 mins from my home but sooo worth it! The staff here is amazing. They are professional, friendly, patient and don’t make you feel judged. They make you feel so comfortable. Dr. Skinner is a pretty cool dentist so the fact that his staff also reflects that, is awesome. Brought my son in for a cleaning his last dental experience (not here) was horrible so it took some time before he was willing to try again. Well he said “mommy, that was not bad at all. They were really nice”. Looking for a dentist, come here. They will take care of you. Did I mention, the office is super clean and you get a wonderful view in each station?!

Jeanne M. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Honestly, I’ve been looking for a dentist in Tampa for 20 years. I finally found one! I can’t recommend them highly enough. I’ve had a cleaning and fillings. First the cleaning: I have been to several of the chain dental clinics, they all wanted to charge for a “deep cleaning”, which as a former dental assistant I knew wasn’t indicated. Low and behold I go to Dr. Skinner and finally got a real cleaning not just a polish. I needed fillings and just had them. I didn’t even feel the injection and the fillings match my teeth so well I can’t see them. It was fast and so extremely pleasant. The staff is honest, efficient and friendly. I haven’t felt this good about my mouth for years!

I’ve been going to Dr Skinner’s office for more than a year now. I lived in Tampa most of my life and I’ve been to many dentists. Dr Skinner is the best dentist in Tampa by far. The staff is extremely friendly, professional, and accommodating. Dr Skinner is excellent and skillful. He is efficient and does not try to sell you on any unnecessary procedures. Highly recommend.

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


Amazing. Ask for the dental hygienist, Sheila; she is definitely who you want for a teeth cleaning. I just got a teeth cleaning and Sheila explained thoroughly how to properly floss by using a model as well as numerous small details of proper teeth health. She’s also very friendly. They didn’t try to sell me anything, which happens at other dentists I’ve been to. I also found it funny the dentist himself said in response to my question about the Waterpik pamphlet saying research said it’s better than flossing, “Well, it depends on who you’re paying to do the research” and explained there’s a debate in the real scientific world between the utility of Waterpik vs floss, but they’re both better than nothing, a similar debate to electric vs regular toothbrush in that it depends more on how the user brushes the teeth.

Love Dr. Skinner, Ms. Sheila and the entire staff! Dr. Skinner tells you like it is and what is needed and doesn’t do things that aren’t necessary just to make a buck like other dentists I’ve gone to. My entire family has been going here for years…my husband, 8 year old daughter and even my parents when they are in town. Truly an exceptional practice!!!

BEST DENTIST EVER!!!!! Dr. Skinner and his staff are warm, welcoming, efficient, and just amazing. I would recommend this practice to everyone. After my first visit I received a hand written note by Dr. Skinner thanking me for coming in. This is what truly valuing your patients is all about. Thank you for making my dental experience the best I have ever had!

Dee M. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skinner is kind, thorough, down-to-earth, and personable. He explains everything in layman’s terms and takes time to make sure you understand everything that’s going on with your teeth. His staff is friendly and efficient, and you’ll have no problem being squeezed in for an emergency visit. I’ve tried several other dentists in the area and he is by far the best!

Mi.... F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doc Skinner & Crew are amazing. I’ve had dental problems all my life and in the 34 years since I moved to Tampa I’ve been referred to many “old line” established dental practices. I’m the kind of person who tends to be brand-loyal, so if you don’t meet my criteria for a professional service you are performing for me–and I am paying for–I won’t be back. Doc Skinner & Crew blew away all my reservations about the practice of dentistry and exceed my expectations in every category. The hygienists especially Sheila are the best in town (I’ve had many who couldn’t hold a candle to them believe me) and all the work Doc Skinner & Crew performed for me at my relatively advanced age has been Grade A top notch. Angela in the front office is incredibly knowledgeable on insurance ins and outs and will get you accurate estimates on anything you decide to get done. You are in the driver’s seat once Doc Skinner gives you all your options. When coordinating his work with other specialists whose services you may require, he is totally professional and “plays well with others”!!!!! Besides which he is great to talk to and very personable. A gem all the way around. Plus the view from the dental chair isn’t the dull boring claustrophobic bare-knuckling white wall, it’s a garden with an ivied brick wall and a fountain with splashing water and palm trees and blue skies and (depending on the weather) puffy white clouds and lizards and butterflies all over. There is a dentist in town whose last name sounds like he ought to be running an Italian restaurant, who sends out advertisements in the mail once a week. Forget it. Go with the BEST!

I just moved back to Tampa & needed a dentist. I went to Dr. Skinner , the Hygienist Liz was professional & gentle. Dr, Skinner came in & he was great , nice personality & friendly. I am happy that I choose this dental office.

Dr Skinner and his entire team are fantastic! He did a great job on my veneers and gave me the smile I’ve always dreamed of. Everyone at his office is very nice and go out of their way to make sure you’re treated like family and happy with the results. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for general or cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Skinner and his staff are all awesome! He has a few great hygienists but one in particular is Stefanie. Not only is she a sweetheart , but she’s the best hygienist I’ve ever had. I have very sensitive areas and she has NEVER hurt me. Dr. Skinner is so nice! He’s done a few fillings for me and has always taken great care of me. Dental appointments have always made me nervous, but not when I’m at Dr. Skinner’s office!!!
