Mary S. from Pittsfield, MA (Source: Yelp)


After a series of disastrous dental experiences, I developed a fear of going to any dentist. I managed to avoid the whole situation for years. A tooth broke apart and I could not avoid making an appointment. My husband would have his teeth cleaned at the Leavitt Dental Group. He recommended it so I reluctantly made an appointment there. The office is beautiful, the staff are all lovely and kind. Especially Dr. Leavitt, who listened to my fears, did his examination and spoke honestly about my situation. He and his excellent staff managed to create an atmosphere of calm positive reassurance. By my second visit, I realized I was no longer terrified of sitting in his dentist chair. If I had been lucky enough to meet him earlier, I would have avoided years of pain and discomfort. He is amazing. I am so happy with his work that I find myself smiling much more often. I love the way my smile looks now. He did an amazing job. I highly recommend this very kind, highly skilled, honest, talented professional and his entire team. Very well done.

Fantastic staff and first class care! Having left a “corporate” and national dental chain, this office is a breath of fresh air. This is a legacy practice. Family owned and operated. Dr. Leavitt is second generation. The staff is tenured, local, engaged, and ACTUALLY cares about me as a person, patient, and community resident. Refreshing! Rarely, in my experience, have I had medical care this engaging. In addition, the staff interacts with each other AND has a sense of humor. Want proof? Check out the picture for “No Solicitation” on the front door! Keep the sign ladies! Visiting this office is like arriving home…fun, light-hearted, inviting, and warm. Thank you for everything! You have a long term customer in me!

I love it there, granted my daughter is one of the hygienist. It is warm and friendly there and all the people are great. Dr. Leavitt is very gentle, caring, spectacular dentist! He treats all his patients with respect.

Dr. Leavitt and Scher Dental Group is the best dental group in the world!! The doctors, medical and office staff are professional, polite and always greet you with a smile. The list of services provided are encompassing and their quality of work is superior! Their customer service is outstanding, and I have and will continue to highly recommend them to family and friends. What are you waiting for? Give them a call, now! You will be pleased you did.

Love, love, LOVE Leavitt Dental Group in Mayfield Heights. They’re friendly, the office is cozy and welcoming, and their service is second-to-none. They’ve got a coffee machine, water and granola bars in the waiting room, in addition to a great assortment of children’s books and toys. I don’t think I’ve ever waited more than five minutes to get into the dentist’s chair. As soon as I get there, they always take me back quickly. Also, they allow the patient to participate in his or her own care and make important decisions. They’re very kid-friendly, which I appreciate. I’ve been taking my girls with me to appointments since they were babies, and the staff at Leavitt always accommodates. The business is family-owned, and Dr. Leavitt’s father owned it before him. They’ve got that small business feel and remember us each time we come in, which is great. I can’t say enough good things about them; they’re fabulous!

Thomas H. from Chesterland, OH (Source: Yelp)


I cannot give too high a praise to Dr. Leavitt and his fabulous staff. If you are someone who is nervous about dental procedures (Me) and has many questions, Dr. Leavitt is who you want to see. He and his staff take the time to explain exactly what the plan is, what to expect, and they are always happy to answer any questions. Their thoughtfulness and professionalism make it very clear that they truly enjoy working with their patient. They  make  visiting the dentist low anxiety and are always working to make the their patients relaxed and free of pain.

From the time you walk in there until the time you leave it’s always smiling faces, phenomenal customer service and care. I am one of those people who are afraid of needles and Dr. Levitt it makes me feel so comfortable it is almost become a non-issue. I love these guys and recommend them to all my friends and family!!

My experience with Dr. Scher and his assist was excellent. The both of them was very kind and gentle. The office is very clean and the bathroom is immaculate. The entire staff was very FRIENDLY and PROFESSIONAL. I will be going back again for future appointments (when needed). I would highly recommend their services

Yusuf A. from Avon Lake, OH (Source: Yelp)


Wow. I can’t say enough about the job that Dr. Leavitt and his staff do. They are extremely nice and professional but they are also not afraid to tell it like it is. My teeth were in horrendous shape. Taking care of all of my issues was no small task. Over the course of several appointments, I have a completely new smile. I really couldn’t be happier. Do yourself a favor and pick this dental practice.

Dennis G. from Apache Junction, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I had a broken denture and they took care of me right away. My perfectly repaired partial was not only completely restored; but adjusted to fit better. I was so impressed by the entire staff that I registered my wife and myself as new patients and will now be going here for cleanings and other dental care that may be needed. I would give 6 stars if I could.

Being a senior citizen I was concerned about coming into the office at this time of Covid19. I worried for nothing because your office had every safety precaution one could have in this situation, from temperature taking, hand sanitizer, face masks , face shields, gloves, Plexiglas barriers, and more. Thank you Dr. Leavitt and all the staff for providing this essential service to the community at this dangerous time. And of course there is always all the friendly smiling faces that greet me not to mention the great job you do taking care of my teeth. This is a wonderful dental practice and I am very glad to be a patient here.

Betsy B. from Chagrin Falls, OH (Source: Yelp)


I have to begin this review by saying I love every single person that works at Leavitt Dental Group. They’re kindness ,patience and genuine caring are apparent the moment you walk in the door. Dr. Leavitt immediately put me at ease… Which is no easy feat.. He thoughtfully explained what needed to be done without overwhelming me and he was true to his word when he told me my end result would be a beautiful smile!! The best part for me was that I NEVER had a moment of pain during my numerous visits! Do yourself a favor and make an appt today … Dr. Leavitt will truly give you the smile you have always dreamed of and you’ll actually enjoy the process!!

Dr. Levitt and his staff are experienced and knowledgeable in all areas of Dentistry. They have worked with me and my Ever Changing insurance companies to make it work. He’s up-to-date with the latest technology which puts me at ease for getting my dental work done competently. My children have loved going to him as well.

Elizabeth H. from Upland, CA (Source: Yelp)


As far as dentists and dental hygenists go… they are five stars, all the way. This is comming from a woman who has not been to the dentist in seven years people! I have avioded the dentist like the plague, and after my experiences at Leavitt dental I have been asking myself, why. They were exptremly welcoming, and professional to me; actually taking the time to chat with me before my appointment and getting to know me! The office is very nice, complete with flat screen TVs that you are able to lay back and vedge out on while you are having work done. I will be going back to Dr. Leavitt for my dental needs, and I would recommend that you do the same!

Had a filling fall out. I love peanuts! They took me in and twenty minutes later, I was done. Dr. Leavitt has been my dentist for over forty years and he’s amazing. I had Dr. Scher today, he did a great job. Love the entire staff over there, making life better for clients, one tooth at a time.

Mary L. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


Dr Leavitt saved my teeth after I spent years going to dentists who from everything I know now must have been putting filings and crowns over decay. I cannot say how grateful and glad I am that I found this dental office. If you are looking for top notch care, this is the place. Highly recommend! I would give 10++ stars if I could.

Gina M. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


I met Dr. Leavitt about seven years ago, never met anyone like him. My mother, my husband and myself consider Dr. Leavitt a part of our family. His work is excellent and that is an understatement, his staff is remarkable, not to mention the quality of his work with an in-house lab, the crowns, flippers, night guards made excellent. Makes you look like a movie-star.

Stephanie Weiner (Source: Facebook)


Great dentist / staff ! Dr.Leavitt will make you feel comfortable and will do everything he can to get you the beautiful smile you want. I hate my smile but I’ve come along way still need some work but it’ll happen!

I have been a patient of this practice for over 25 years and am very pleased with how professionally it is run, and how welcoming and friendly the staff are. Through the years, I have experienced Dr. Leavitt’s re-investments of money and energy into keeping the practice modern and up to date. Even when I lived in Columbus for awhile, I chose to come to Cleveland for my ongoing dental care with these folks. The waiting room, stocked with drinks and treats, is very pleasant and clean , as are the treatment rooms. And the bathroom is nicer than mine ! They value my time by keeping the wait times very minimal for every appointment – often I am taken to the treatment room right at the appointment time – that is courtesy ! Of course, you go to the dentist for dental care. The hygienists are so friendly and make my cleanings a positive experience. Dr. Leavitt’s skill is terrific. Every onlay, crown or mouth guard that he has done for me has worked out well, with no issues. Whenever I share any dental concerns, I feel that he hears me and has my best interest at heart. I have never felt any pressure to pay for more than what I need, which I appreciate so much. Regarding prices, I have to be honest and say that I have never shopped around for price on procedures – but I can at least say that I have never felt the need to shop around because the prices seem reasonable to me. Every conversation I have had with Dr. Leavitt impresses me with how thoughtful and considerate he is. So, I have absolutely no doubt that Dr. Scher, the dentist to whom Dr. Leavitt is transitioning over the reins, is the kind of person to whom I want to entrust my dental care. Dr. Leavitt shared his transition plan with me, and it is a good, solid plan to ensure that the level of commitment to good quality dental care will be upheld. I and have no doubt that Dr. Leavitt’s dad, Bob, the original Dr. Leavitt that I started with, would be proud !

They are just absolutely the nicest people! I went to Dr. Leavitt twenty years ago, and now after such a long period of time has passed, I returned and they’re customer service is still top-notch, way over the top, and Dr. Leavitt is still the concerned Dentist to give the best care and best solution to meet each individual’s need or situation! I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with the care they provide! Exceptional!

Nora G. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


Having been employed in the dental field for almost two decades, I am intimately acquainted with the ins and outs, ups and downs and overall B.S. associated with dental offices. I’ve seen it all and know what happens “behind the scenes” and therefore cannot be fooled too easily when it comes to rating a dental office. Dr. Leavitt and his entire staff provided a “soft place to fall” when it came to every aspect of my dental visit, from my first phone call until I walked out the door after my initial cleaning and new patient exam. He and his staff are the real deal…no smoke and mirrors. They are there to provide you with excellent dental care in the most welcoming and relaxing environments possible. Spot on with every up to date technique and state of the art technology, yet this office still has the feel of the friendly neighborhood dentist. A winning combination! Thank you Dr. Leavitt and staff…you’ve renewed my faith in the dental community!

Marie W. from Aurora, OH (Source: Yelp)


I changed dentists about a year ago and have been very pleased with my experiences at Leavitt Dental Clinic. Dr. Leavitt is the consummate professional, explaining procedures clearly and with compassion. I am impressed with his state-of-the-art technology which he implements during his examinations to help clearly define any issues which need addressing. His staff is friendly, and his assistants and hygienists perform their duties with confidence and professionalism. I am confident in recommending the Leavitt Dental Group to my friends and will continue to do so.

Wafa I. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


The reviews on here for Dr. Leavitt seem too good to be true… The good news is- they’re true! He is an awesome dentist. He’s honest and will not sugar coat anything for you unless you really ask him to. He walks you through every step, gives you all the details A to Z so that you know exactly what’s going on. Dr. Leavitt takes his time with you, and you never feel rushed, even if he has another appointment waiting. Office is clean and staff is very friendly. I feel lucky that I am able to see Dr. Leavitt and will continue coming here as long as I have teeth 😉

Susan T. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


I chose Dr. Leavitt because of the ratings on Yelp. I am beyond happy that I did, he is indeed honest but also very patient. I told him about my bad experiences over the years with extensive dental work, my dislike and fear of the dentist and my current concerns about my mouth. He listened to my concerns and then explained what was really going on in my mouth. He discussed my possible treatment plans step by step and we made my next appointment. My second appointment was yesterday and when I arrived I changed my mind on the sequence of the teeth to be treated and he was happy to make the adjustment. The entire staff especially Linda are also wonderful!! My only complaint about Dr. Leavitt is that my Dentist paradigm has been shifted and I am not sure how to handle it! 🙂

I was shocked to see a low rating for this dentist and felt the obligation to post my opinion. Dr. Leavitt quite simply saved my teeth. Due to lots of moves, I have been to many dentists over the years and actually kind of enjoy the appointments. Dr. Leavitt is without question the most skilled, straight forward and talented dentist I have ever been to. His staff is fantastic and very professional. I was on the verge of losing a tooth due to an occlusion and due to some other physical damage. It was literally hanging by a few remaining ligaments. He did not do what 99% of dentists would do; yank it and put in a fake tooth. He worked with me, stabilized it and saved it. It is not perfect, but it is still there. he also fixed a chip that no other dentist could. As the other review mentioned, he is a straight shooter and tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. No unnecessary work, just the right work. He is also fantastic with my kids, who have awesome teeth under his care. I very highly recommend this practice and would never even consider switching to another dentist. I have literally left the office glad that he is a young man and that the office should be around to see me through many years.

Over the years the wife and I have jumped around to various local dentists. This has been caused primarily by changes in medical coverage. Due to our recent change in coverage (which began at the turn of the year) we started searching for someone in-network and found Yelp reviews similar to this one that sang high praises of LDG. Our first visit was last week, where we both received cleanings. We found the facilities to be clean and VERY modern. The staff was courteous, the cleaning seemed thorough, and Dr Leavitt was very pleasant and charismatic. We both left pleased, though me a little less so as I found an old silver filling from decades ago needed removed as there was some inside decay. Today I returned to have that procedure done, and again was greeted by friendly staff and courteous smiles. And once again I was warmed over by the pleasant nature of Dr Leavitt who provided informative information in an easy to understand manner regarding my procedure. They have plenty of gizmos and gadgets to rave about, but the bottom line is that we haven’t seen any dental practice that offers this level of hospitality ever in the area. We’re super pleased to have found them, especially with them being so close to home. While nobody ever really looks forward to going to the dentist (do they? haha), at least we’ll be glad to know we’re going somewhere that feels warm, friendly and inviting. See you in 6 months for a cleaning!

Mir E. from Gates Mills, OH (Source: Yelp)


I located this office actually off of Yelp and his office was the only one with the most reviews near me, glad that it was. I got in the same day, Office was super cozy and nice, staff was very helpful and sweet and Dr. Leavitt himself was a pleasure to meet. It made it easier for me since im not a fan of going to the dentist anyway but just the warm friendly atmosphere made it a lot more bareable. He was honest and up front about everything that needed to be fixed and told me we would work on them together…I loved it 🙂
