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

Scott L. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Sparkman for a few years now. I can honestly say that he is the best dentist I have ever been to. His “chair side” manners are outstanding. The staff is always pleasant and extremely accommodating. In addition to my regular check ups, I have had a crown and a root canal and can honestly say that both procedures were painless. Dr. Sparkman regularly checked on my comfort level for both procedures and made adjustments when necessary. He truly is a skilled professional.

I discovered Dr.Sparkman when I was in my 20s now I am 57 so that’s how long I been knowing him ,and his work last a lifetime.Now I have my kids going to him and i hope he around for all their needs.We could not have ask for a better dentist no where in this world than this man and I know I dont visit like I should ,but your work is that good.Thanks Dr Sparkman for thirty years plus of knowing you and proving me with your excellent skill .

Teresa D. from Alpharetta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman and his staff have been taking care of our teeth for over 23 years! We have moved all over the northern suburbs from Dunwoody to Duluth to Alpharetta and while all of our other physicians have changed, we’ve never once considered leaving Dr. Sparkman or his excellent staff. We happily make the commute because of the level of genuine and professional care. The office is spotless. The technology is superior. The experience is fast and friendly. They honor my appointment time so punctually, that I never have time to finish a magazine article in the lobby. When I arrive for my cleaning, they know that I get cold in air conditioning, so often they have a warm blanket waiting for me! This is customer care! During my root canal, Dr. Sparkman put me at ease and took personal care of me. Dr. Sparkman and his staff dispel the rumors that going to the dentist is a traumatizing thing. It is not! It does not have to be if you’ve got the right dentist, and we do!! Highly recommend Dr. Sparkman!

i can only say ,amazing ,everyone in the office is the very best at this type of business. I can go on and on about how great they are but I want to emphasize ,EVERYONE, in the office is like family. since 2004 I have been to the office every six months (or sooner) and never ever felt like I needed to seek another Dentist for anything. Some weeks ago I received a generic survey from some Monkey ,or something questions like “was the waiting room clean ?” I don’t know I am never in there long enough to see it.My appointment times are important to me and this practice as well. Thanks to all of you for an ongoing great experience Frank

Sarah T. from Buford, GA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve been going to Dr. Sparkman for 11 years. Love the entire staff. Once we had children, our sons would go w/ me for my visits and when they were of age, they received their first check up by Dr. Sparkman. Our whole family continues to drive down to Dunwoody even after moving to Buford. It is well worth the drive. Our children have never had a bad experience. Our oldest just had his first cavity and it was easy peasy! Highly recommend Dr. Sparkman!

Michael L. from Cumming, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman has been my dentist for 15 years! As others have said, he has a wonderful manner, is always up to date on the newest procedures and treats you like a friend ( which he has become over the years). I moved from Dunwoody to lake Lanier, but still travel to see Dr. Sparkman…. and for those who are a little nervous, his novacaine shots do not hurt at all!! Really, I mean it.

Dr. Sparkman is not only a great dentist, but a humanitarian as well. I just met him this Saturday, July 4th holiday weekend because he was the only dentist out of 47 that I called, to get emergency dental care for my 97 year old father, that called me back. Not one other dentist would assist me. My Dad was in great distress and Dr. Sparkman said “Of course, I’ll help you”. He is simply amazing! He fixed my Dad right up with no problem. He is so humorous, warm and engaging that I can’t say enough about him. When I went to this website to write a review, I read about his background and credentials and, I must say, I am very impressed, but not at all surprised after meeting him. Now he has 2 new patients for life. I cannot thank you enough dear, Dr. Sparkman for what you did for us.

There is a reason why Dr. Sparkman is rated so high, he and his team are just awesome. You can tell he is a genuinely nice and caring guy and he always takes time to explain all procedures. His staff is just as good. I’ve moved to Charlotte and I continue to schedule my appointments with Dr. Sparkman when I’m back in Atlanta….too hard to find another dentist this good!

Michael E. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Prior to selecting Dr. Sparkman, I was apprehensive of dental work .  Since my first visit several years ago, he has always explained, in a calm, professional manner, what work and maintenance are required .  His staff is excellent and strives to know each patient, I have never felt as if I were a ‘number’.  In summary he and his staff, are excellent and in my opinion, trustworthy and professional.

Fyre K. from Woodstock, GA (Source: Yelp)


Great service! I have been going to Dr. Sparkman for over 12 years and would not think of changing! The office staff is friendly and truly cares. I have had one emergency and Dr. Sparkman was wonderful about getting me in as soon as possible but also calling in prescriptions to help with the pain and infection. I can not recommend him highly enough!

Dr. Sparkman has been my dentist for 20 years. He started with me and then as my kids were born, he became their dentist too. He has treated us with all types of dental work and he and his staff always make us feel right at home. My kids–now teenagers love Dr. Sparkman and his staff. They have watched them grow up and have gotten to know him. Going to the dentist has never been scary. My daughter had to have cavities filled in her baby teeth when she was very young. But she was never scared around Dr. Sparkman. He’s not particularly convenient to where I live or work but I still come to him because he and his staff are that great.

Damerion T. from Smyrna, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman! Wow truly amazing! I had my first visit in the office today and I already have one million complements I want to share. I’ve always avoided the dentist simply because I am afraid, Dr. Sparkman easily and with zero effort turned that fear around. Very kind and gentle. I am so happy I found this office. The Dental Assistants amazing! Clean office.

Cindi R. from Decatur, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman and his staff are fabulous.  I am a long time patient (almost 20 years) and have had no complaints with cleanings or more major procedures such as root canals, crowns, surgery, etc.  He is always on top of the latest procedures, tools and research and his office is state-of-the-art.  Everyone is very professional and the atmosphere is easygoing, making a what could be an otherwise stressful visit a calm one.  I have never been pressured into considering any vanity dentistry but appreciate being told about options I may have with regard to my dental health or the appearance of my teeth.  Many of the staff have been there as long as I have been going, Elaine and Charlene in particular.  Going to the dentist is like visiting friends a couple of times a year.  They are professional, knowledgeable and very good at their jobs, but they are also wonderful human beings – so much that my husband and I drive a long distance for appointments since moving away 13 years ago.  I stumbled upon his office when I needed an emergency dentist and have never looked back.  I highly recommend Dr, Sparkman and team.

Dr. Sparkman’s office is always the most wonderful experience. Every one that works there is kind and caring. You never feel rushed or an inconvenience. The doctor has obviously created an environment of professionalism that carries through to the entire staff. I actually look forward to my dental visits, which I’m betting not everyone can say. Dr. Sparkman always makes time for us in emergencies, and genuinely cares about the recovery. He heals with the least amount of pain, and somehow makes you laugh about it in the process. We’re grateful we found you guys!

Elizabeth Nachman Herrington (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Sparkman and his team are the BEST! The ladies at the front will bend over backwards to make sure all your questions and issues are resolved. In the back, the medical staff are professional, kind and thorough. They have taken care of my daughter and me for 10 years and we are always complimented on our beautiful smiles. Thank you Dr. Sparkman and team for making me smile! *Elizabeth Herrington

I wouldn’t give Dr. Sparkman and his office nothing but 5 stars. I have never had a bad experience at this dentist office. I’ve always wanted to get my teeth whitened. For my birthday, my mom purchased a whitening treatment from Dr. Sparkman. I thought I was going into the office to take my daughter for her regular visit for her braces. However, my mom got with Charlene and Elaine and surprised me to have my teeth whiten while my daughter was getting her braces retied. They had the chair decorated with a happy birthday banner. Dr. Sparkman has the best staff you will ever want to meet. They truly make you feel like you are special. I wouldn’t trade them for the world and neither would my family!!*Felicia McGrue

Dr. Sparkman is considered to be the BEST dentist that I have truly admired in the suburban area of Dunwoody. He is well liked with an awesome personality with patience. I recommend those who are extremely interested in allowing Dr. Sparkman to “clean your teeth” so that you can have a healthy, beautiful smile, I highly encourage you to make a free consultation first, then make an appointment to see him. He did an excellent job fixing my crown about 9 years ago! And I am still enjoying it because it is well intact up to this day! Dr. Sparkman, keep up the good work as I make plans to see you clean my teeth!!

Dr. Sparkman! Wow truly amazing! I had my first visit in the office today and I already have one million complements I want to share. I’ve always avoided the dentist simply because I am afraid, Dr. Sparkman easily and with zero effort turned that fear around. I am so happy I found this office. The Dental Assistants amazing! Clean office.

Kelley D. from Avondale Estates, GA (Source: Yelp)


I was one of Dr. Sparkman’s very first patients back in the 1980’s. I will never go anywhere else and have referred countless friends and colleagues to him–all sharing this same opinion of the service they have received from he and his staff. Dr. Sparkman provides a pleasant surrounding, extraordinary dental care and the friendliest environment you’ll ever find at a medical professional’s office. My most recent check up visit was great–as usual. Oh, and I never wait for my appointment and they are fast and efficient. I am always amazed. Thanks Dr. Sparkman and team for helping me maintain my good dental health and sparkling white smile.

Renee W. from Fort Collins, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Sparkman for several years and my entire family sees him, as well. When you are well into your 50’s and have a lifetime of too much sugar and not enough floss, the news isn’t always positive. However, I have found that quality dentistry comes at a cost. Whenever Dr. Sparkman has to make a less-than-pleasant recommendation, he tries to delay the work for as long as possible to reduce my physical or financial pain. He’s “expensive”, but losing my teeth or dealing with an inept dentist (I’ve had several of those in my time, too), is worth it. He’s fair. He’s honest. And his staff is exemplary.

Rob H. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


After receiving the reminder telephone call from Elaine about my appointment this week, I realized that after years of fear and dread caused by past dental experiences from other dentist, I was actually excited to hear from my dentist. Dr Sparkman has always worked hard to put me at ease.  Ten years ago,  at my first visit, I confessed to Dr Sparkman that I had a complete fear of all dentist. He and his staff treated my concerns with sensitivity and compassion. They explained every step and comforted me along the way. Most importantly, my fear had kept me out of a dentist office for many years and I had many issues to deal with. It has taken many visit to correct my issues, but today I am so grateful that I found the most professional, medically advanced, and compassionate dentist in the Atlanta area. The entire team from the front office, Elaine and Charlene, and the best dental staff including Tiffany and Dr Tom, are a rare find in today’s medical community. Thank you all.

Tom has been my dentist for awhile now and I’ve never had a more professional, courteous, and friendly experience with any health care practitioner. Tom is genuinely interested in your complete oral health, not just turning production. I would recommend him without hesitation to any one of my friends, and do quite frequently. The staff is great, also!

The office has the latest and greatest in technology and comfort. 8 crowns, three unit bridge and numerous other dental procedures I am convinced it is the delivery of this care that makes the difference from other dentist. Dr. Sparkman brings that personal level of comfort to each visit. From the time you set in the chair his professional and personal energy takes over and you know that all will be done to the highest level and standards available. I have also learned over the years that you get what you pay for and it doesn’t start with a buy one get one free coupon. After one visit you will know you have found your dentist for life.

Julie J. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


If you are a weenie at the dentist, then Dr. Sparkman is the dentist for you. At 40 yrs old I never had a novacaine shot, too scared. Dr. Sparkman was the first dentist to give me one.  Absolutely the best! Love, love this practice. On time, thorough, and the best bed side manner!!! I had to move to Dallas, but seriously considering flying in for my next visit!

Elizabeth H. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman and his staff are fantastic!  My daughter and I have been going to this group for years and I highly recommend them.  The entire team makes you feel right at home.  Dr. Sparkman put braces on my daughter.  The results are fantastic.  He has done several crowns for me.  I have people compliment me quite often on my smile.  I owe that to Dr. Sparkman and his team for keeping my smile all straight, clean and healthy!!  We love Dr. Sparkman and his fabulous team!

Shawn M. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


my kids and I  switched from our long time family dentist to Dr. Sparkman a few years ago when it was time for my kids to get braces.  I was blow away by the state of the art  equipment in the office and that they were able to discover some previously unknown major issues with my daughters secondary teeth.  On top of that, the courteous, helpful, caring staff have become friends – definitely worth the drive from intown to Dunwoody.  WE HEART DR SPARKMAN!

Rick C. from Athens, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sparkman and his staff are super! I have been going to him for about 10 years now. He has put in at least four crowns for me. What I like best is that he has state of the art equipment. Digital x-ray which uses less radiation and he can make your crowns right in the office. No temporaries where you have to come back for the final crown. He has a milling machine in the office which makes the final crown while you wait. He is also very fair. I broke a night guard and he didn’t charge me for a replacement.

You always hear “No one likes to go to the dentist” but I actually love to go to the dentist to visit with Dr. Sparkman and his fabulous team. Everyone is very professional but down-to-earth and fun too. Having had a series of crowns and root canals due to an ice crunching habit, I can attest that he does everything possible to make each procedure as painless and quick as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Sparkman to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, thorough and professional dental experience.

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Sparkman and the gang for over 10 years now. Having a long history of constant teeth problems, I have seen dozens of dentists over the years. By FAR and AWAY Dr. Sparkman has the “SPARK” and provides the most comfortable, modern, confident dental work I know of. You will not be disappointed. Plus, he tells some good jokes (usually!). 🙂 Nick and family

Parker M. from Marietta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I was in a tragic accident falling from about 8 feet in the air, slamming my face into concrete. This caused me to chip my two front teeth horribly and lose a tooth as well. My mom found Dr. Sparkman at around 10:00 a.m. and he told us to come in even though his office would be closing at 2:00. As soon as we arrived it took about 30 seconds to be called to the back and Dr. Sparkman was already on his way to come see me, he knew it was going to take a lot of work so while his assistant was taking my x-rays he went to go grab a bite to eat and even bought me a bowl of chicken noodle soup since I couldn’t eat anything hard. He then performed two root canals, made me a fake tooth for the time being, put filling on my two front teeth, and placed a wire on my teeth to hold them together all in the same day. We were there from 10:30 in the morning to 6:00 at night, but Dr. Sparkman did not care how long it took as long as he made me look pretty again. With his hilarious sense of humor and amazing generosity, him and his assistant made me feel so comfortable and Made sure I had no pain. My mother had already decided that first day that he was going to be our new family dentist. The staff makes you feel right at home and really does care about your well being. 10/10 I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone. He is

Dr. Sparkman and his team are wonderful. In 3 years of care, I have been impressed at every visit. For my routine visits, they are on-time (I have never sat more than 5 minutes in his waiting room) and thorough. When I had a recent emergency with excruciating tooth pain, he worked me in the same day. He determined I needed a root canal, and performed it the same day with such skill that I felt nearly 100% better within hours. I couldn’t ask for more.

Kelley Daviss (Source: Facebook)


Hands down, best dentist ever! I was one of Dr. Sparkman’s very first patients back in the ’80’s and I’ll never go anywhere else. Over the years I have referred countless friends and colleagues to him and they all have had the same experience. Most people hate going to a dentist. This is not your normal dental experience. The whole team is awesome. He is extraordinary, fast, efficient and it is a pleasurable experience-beginning to end. Thanks, Dr. Sparkman, for maintaining my dental health and helping me keep my bright, white smile!

We just love Dr. Sparkman and all of his staff. This has to be the best-run dental office in all of Atlanta. My entire family sees Dr. Sparkman – all five of us – and we have never had to wait as they are always on-time. They are very flexible and we have found it very easy to get an appointment when we need/want one. I most recently was there to make the impressions for my new implant. I was in and out quickly and the entire process was easy and pain-free. I recommend Sparky to everyone I know. Oh, and the disco music in the background comes free-of-charge – just one of the many benefits of going to Dr. Sparkman!
