I have been going to Michael Fernandez dentistry for 11 years now and I will not even try out another dentist. Their office has all the best technology and it is beautiful. More than that the staff is always so friendly and do a great job to always make you comfortable. Dr. Fernandez is personable and does what is best for your dental care and always asks about my family. I always recommend them!

I revisited him after several years away. He moved to a new office near Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach. I had three visits that ran smoothly, on time, and resulted in a lovely outcome. It was nearly pain free. The results were fantastic! Thank you to your wonderful staff and to you, Dr. Fernandez.

DENTALIGHTFUL!!! How often do you rave about your Dentist, Hygienist, and the entire staff? I adore this Family Dentistry! Yesterday was a “wait list” cleaning appointment. YAY! Mary is awesome! She is caring, professional, courteous, fun, and gave me high marks on my dental home care. We had a lovely chat and Still managed to complete all that needed to be done. Of course, the great Dr. Fernandez popped in and gave my pearly whites the professional eye. All A Okay! From the moment you enter till your departure, you are in the best ever hands! AWESOME!

Thanks to Michael Fernandez Family Dentistry!! I have been a patient for over 5 years and I have only praise for this group of professionals. The staff is always courteous and friendly and helpful if I have to reschedule an appointment. The staff work well with each other and enjoy each other. No crabby people at this office!!! The atmosphere is upbeat and focused on care for their patients. In addition its close to Nordstrom Rack where I frequent after my dental visits!! Then I swing by Wegmans! I like being able to turn right onto S. Independence so the location is convenient. So awesome care, upbeat and professional and near shopping!

Having full-mouth dental implants is a long and meticulous process.  Many consultations and measurements prior to removing the the teeth is necessary, and careful planning for the insertion of temporary teeth, which will remain for months as bone heals.  Dr. Fernandez excellently and thoroughly explains every detail, and I felt great confidence as we moved forward.  The staff is helpful, friendly and experienced…this is a positive workplace.  I highly recommend Dr. Fernandez and all!

David B. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez & his team are so professional and personable. Christina is one of the best hygienist and she is always so friendly. The family and myself have moved to a new house in New Kent County VA. It is over an hour drive to Virginia Beach …but we do not plan on changing dentist. I think that pretty much says how much we love Dr. Fernandez & his team!

Dr Fernandez is kind and compassionate and a very skilled dentist. After years of searching for a competent dentist I was lucky enough to find Michael Fernandez Family Dentistry. The staff is amazingly friendly and always welcoming and accommodating. It is a true joy to visit their office which is well run, efficient and immaculately clean. Dr Fernandez is not only an amazingly skilled dentist he is very caring, compassionate and kindhearted.

Dr. Fernandez and his staff by far go above and beyond the call of duty. From my first consultation to the plan for my dental surgery I have been treated with extraordinary care and every step of my surgery was explained to me in detail. I am not a very good patient when it comes to working on my teeth. Dr Fernandez referred me to Dr Rais for the actual extraction of my teeth and Dr Fernandez put me at ease with the preparation for my dentures. This office treats you like family and I recommend them highly for your dental needs. I was also impressed with Jennifer and how she worked with me to get the best financial recommendations for all my needs. I give this office an A+++++ for their customer service and ensuring their patients are comfortable every step of the way. I cannot thank them enough. Sincerely, MWS

Mercy Q. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Fernandez and his staff are very thorough and very much a friendly atmosphere each time my mother and I visit their dental office. I highly recommend them. 5 Yesterday, October 10, 2019 Dr. Fernandez and his family oriented staff have never failed to fulfill our dental needs. I recommended them to my daughter and to start seeing them for future dental needs. I thank them always for a great service!!!

Gene M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Fernandez since he acquired the practice from Dr. Hoffman.  Dr. Fernandez and his staff are very professional and friendly.  You are treated like one of their family.  The practice is very modern and forward thinking in how they go about their business.  I would highly recommended them to one and all.

Super clean and modern facility. Awesome front staff, dental assistants are really nice and super efficient at their jobs. The dentist himself Dr. Fernandez is very personable. My fiance and I have been going here for 3 years and do not intend to switch, as they are that good. Highly recommend, even during COVID. I appreciate the extra effort they take to ensure their patients safety.

C. M. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez and Dr. Cox provide outstanding service! The office staff treats everyone with respect and compassion! So glad that a co-worker referred me to them. I’ve switched my entire family over. I needed to be referred to an endodontist and they were excellent as well! If you have had bad experiences in the past with dentist please go see this staff. They will take care of you!

Candace W. from Norfolk, VA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone on the team is AMAZING!! They’re welcoming, willing to go above and beyond,friendly, informative and very helpful. The staff is also very good with children. My daughter loves to go to the dentist because she knows we’re going to Dr. Fernandez’s office. They also accommodate myself and my daughter at the same time so I always schedule our appointments for the same time.

Woody N. from GA, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez is top-notch! I’ve been seeing him for almost a year, and plan to continue seeing him as long as I live in this area. I am very glad I found someone of his caliber. My mouth is somewhat complicated, and he takes the time to do a thorough job, and most importantly, he explains everything very thoroughly. The hygienists, likewise, take their time do to a thorough job. The office has a modern, clean design. They have modern, top-line equipment. Each chair has a computer screen that they use to show you things, such as x-rays, etc. One of my favorite things is they have a camera on a stick that they can take photos inside your mouth, and then show you the photos on the screen, so you can see exactly what the dentist is seeing inside your mouth. Because of my complicated mouth, I occasionally will need to come in unscheduled for something other than the routine 6-month cleaning. He is flexible about fitting you in within a day or two, and if the visit is a simple question and answer type thing, they’ll do it on the house. Dr. Fernandez always seeks to learn more about dentistry and attends conferences and continues his education in other ways, so he always knows about cutting-edge dentistry tools and techniques.

If anyone is looking for a dentist, I cannot say enough about these guys! The girls out front, the hygienists, the assistants and Dr. Fernandez. They are all the best!! I’ve had root canals, crowns, fillings and cleanings! Not one complaint here!! So if you need a dentist, look no further!!

Henry S. from Chesapeake, VA (Source: Yelp)


Through the years, I have often found it hard to find and good dentist.  As a matter of fact, much of the work Dr Fernandez is now doing is repair work to prior bad treatment (like an improperly placed bridge).  Dr Fernandez provides detailed explanation of necessary treatment and has a good sense of humour.  Although my wife and I have moved out of the midtown area, we will both keep Dr Fernandez as our dentist.

During these challenging times it is so refreshing to be treated with such respect, kindness and professionalism. Big Kudos to Kelly for her precision and skill working with all those sharp instruments while digging around in my mouth. You made the “dental experience” a pleasure with your attention to detail and smiling eyes. Sincere thanks to the entire team for always being so nice. It matters. I highly recommend the office of Dr. Michael Fernandez to anyone looking for top quality dental service and care.

I am someone with very bad anxiety with doctors offices however as soon I spoke with the front desk the tone of voice relaxed me the office was beautiful and welcoming. Getting serviced by the treatment coordinator, Jessica, she was so friendly and helped me feel very relaxed being so informative. May, was the first one to walk me to the back and she was very bubbly and understanding which really put me at ease. Dr. Fernandez was very nice and straightforward describing everything he was doing and showed me everything he looked at and saw. This overall was the best experience I have ever had and certainly will continue to go back.

Bruce N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with Dr. Fernandez from the beginning when he first acquired the practice from Dr. Hoffman. I lucked out !!! The staff personnel are so friendly and sincere, they are the best!! The technology Dr. Fernandez has at his disposal is fantastic. In most cases it’s a one visit and you’re done, no come backs to finish the job. I am so thankful he is my dentist. Super personality, he has a calming nature and that’s really important to me. There use to be a time when I hated going to the dentist, not anymore. I just can’t say enough good things about Dr. Fernandez’s dentistry. I rate his practice “EXCELLENT!!!” Bruce N.

Being older I have been to a few dentists over the years. I’ve been coming to him since he began his practice ! Dr Fernandez is By FAR the best I’ve EVER been to !! He and his staff are Efficient, Fast and have a all the new technology ! I would recommend this office and Dr Fernandez to everyone ! Thank you all for your hard work !

I had an amazing experience at Dr. Fernandez office. I had the least painful procedure that I have ever had at a dental office.. The entire staff is friendly and very easy to deal with. I will refer my friends and family here and I recommend them to everyone!

I’ve gone here since I was a kid. Dr. Fernandez and the team here are a fantastic family. They’ve gotten me in for an emergency appointment before that same day. They send text messages and email reminders about your appointments. The facility is brand new. And best of all it works with my insurance

I previously had to cancel my regular cleaning, i called in to find out when they had an opening, and was able to get an appointment in 2 days. The appointment was right on schedule, Very friendly hygienist and thorough. Dr Fernandez performed the final inspection and talked to me about my general dental health. We discussed a possible bridge. He was very honest and offered a few options including ranking by cost, although each person is different because of insurance. The bridge to fill in both side of the mouth missing teeth, he said was the most expensive, had the most metal, and he has had several patients after getting it decided to now wear it. Great place, Great people.

Liz M. from Kalispell, MT (Source: Yelp)


Just had my first cleaning since February and it could not have been a more excellent experience- 10 stars if they would let me! With the Covid 19 impacting so many things, Dr. Fernandez and his staff have taken every precaution- waiting in the car, temp and questionnaire screenings at the door, protection for people working behind the counters, etc. And the hygienist was so professional, comforting, encouraging, and very careful with all the equipment. If you need dental attention, you will be in wonderful hands with this practice!! They are always so friendly and take time to answer all my questions.

Bea S. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


after many years of not getting dental care for fear of dentists a friend referred me to Dr. Fernandez…..I could not have made a better decision…. I was very impressed that after asking him about teeth whitening he told me just try Crest strips…  another dentist possibly would have just done procedure and charged me the $300 or $400…..  that really showed me he was an honest man…….   staff also excellent……..  I do miss the view of the lake………

Jean C. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to Dr. Fernandez and I loved everything about it. I made my appointment with Brittany over the phone and she was very helpful with my insurance and getting me an appointment within a few days of calling. When I arrived the staff was very friendly. May took extra care of me while taking x-rays due to extra bone in my mouth. No other dentist office has ever gone to the extreme that she did to make sure I was comfortable. When Dr. Fernandez came in to discuss my findings and recommendations he was very informative and caring. He listened to my concerns and took his time with me. I am very pleased with the staff and Dr. Fernandez. I would absolutely recommend him.

Kenneth S. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez is top-notch. The staff at Michael Fernandez Family Dentistry is always friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Their new office on Independence is modern, bright, and state-of-the-art. The hygienists always do an extremely thorough job cleaning my teeth and offer great recommendations for keeping my teeth and gums healthy. If you’re looking for a new dentist Michael Fernandez Family Dentistry is a great choice.

People are often nervous about dental visits, but don’t worry about Dr. Fernandez and his staff! Dr. Fernandez calmly and thoroughly explains everything he will do and why, and does that work very carefully. He and each member of the staff is friendly and helpful, which allows anyone to make a dental appointment with confidence.

Brian F. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez and his complete staff are seriously the best. I recently moved to Virginia Beach, and I googled dentists, and read the reviews and decided to go with Dr. Fernandez. He had so many great reviews I thought he would be the one. Boy! Was I right! They are so courteous, and friendly. I cannot say enough about them. If you are looking for a new dentist, take it from someone who has been to several dentists, and knows how different they can be. Dr. Fernandez is not only a great dentist, but he is a fun guy, and makes you feel so comfortable. He always makes sure you are not in any pain. His office is extremely modern, and up to date. He makes the crown, etc. right there in his office. No need for waiting for crowns to come in. They make them right there! How awesome is that? Please give this amazing business a try, you will be so glad you did

Monique S. from Virginia Beach, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fernandez and his staff are amazing. I used to see another dentist until they sent me home with an infected tooth for TWO WHOLE WEEKS . It was so bad that when I finally went in and told them to just pull it out due to the unbearable pain (which it could have been saved weeks prior with just a proper diagnosis) the tooth just popped right out. The moment I switched to Dr. Fernandez, he fixed up my two cavities, one of which I told my other dentist that I had been having a hard time flossing around this tooth. It was a cavity on the side of my tooth that the floss kept getting caught in. It ended up being a root canal. Not even one month later I got the crown on and set up affordable payment plans with my Insurance and the office! Every single one of the staff team value their patients and make you feel very welcome 10/10 would recommend!

I called Dr. Fernandez office this morning to cancel my appointment due to no babysitter for my 8 month old and two year old. And to my amazement the receptionist offered to take care of them for the duration of my visit! This is beyond her job description and it was incredibly thoughtful! Anyone with children in this age range also knows this is no easy task! Thank you so much for going out of your way to ensure that my pearly whites were not neglected! Everyone here on staff is phenomenal!

I was having an issue with a tooth. I called them in the morning. They got me in that day at noon. When I got there they took me in the back. The Doc came right over to check me out. After they took some x rays and the Doc looked closer, he explained everything in detail as what’s going on. I needed to see a specialist in Endodontics for a root canal! They set me up an appointment asap, the next day! The Endodontics they sent me to was also GREAT! I am doing much better and no PAIN! I will have to go back to Dr Fernandez to get the temporary filling removed and a permanent one in a week or so. The staff was wonderful as always! I am so lucky to have this Dentist Office as my Dentist Office! Been going to them for years and would recommend them to anyone.

We love Dr. Fernandez and Shirley. My son used to and sometimes still does have a lot of anxiety over going to the dentist… but he feels safe with Dr. Fernandez and Shirley. They are able to understand his nerves and calm him just by being themselves.  I’m thankful to have a dentist that is so caring towards kids. Thank you! Another girl used to clean his teeth named Jess and she was amazing as well. She was funny and my son loved her too. We also love the front office staff who are always so helpful. Thanks again!
