Dr. Staten and his team is amazing! They truly make the dentist experience superior to any other I know. All of the staff is very friendly and helpful. Their office is high-tech and with TVs in the exam rooms it helps calm you while receiving service. Give Old School Dentist a try, you won’t regret it!

We can’t quite put into words how much we have valued our experiences over the last office we went to. You are greeted with a genuine smile throughout the building, they have their practice down to a science- you are in and out so fast… and we feel like they truly care about our family. If you have children.. they are amazing and so, so quick! They make them feel special and give incentives for staying cavity free! The entire place is immaculate, and so well done. We had heard for a few years within the community before we switched that Old School was the best, and it’s oh so true. I’ve never been to another doctor of any kind that calls you personally after a procedure. Just switch over, you won’t regret it! Thank you, Old School Dental!

Old School dental is amazing!! I hate going to the dentist and haven’t been in a few years.. Dr. Staten is so comforting!! I had to have a crown redone and a filling and he called be after each appointment to make sure I was doing. If you’re looking for a dentist he’s your guy!!

All around great experience..! Easy scheduling over web/email… hassle-free and treat you like family… great historical building remodel and they saved from being torn down… gave a tour and great conversation with all employees… work was fast and of a good quality..! Tried this location because close to work but now the whole family will be going here and taking the drive because the customer service they hold themselves to is incredible and not something you find anymore..

This is the absolute best dentist I’ve ever been to. I no longer dread going. In fact I kind of look forward to it! They take the time to remember details about you. I went from being told I needed fillings almost everytime I went to my old dentists to now being told my enamel is great and have walked out with clean bill of health 4 times now. No pain no discomfort. I love this place and recommend it to everyone! 10/10 couldn’t give higher praises!

After multiple visits to my current dentist, I was referred to Old School Dental. I am leaving for vacation today and was in excruciating pain. Not only was the Dr. Staten able to fix my problem within just a few minutes, he reached out to me, providing his personal cell phone number… to call for emergencies. Amazing bedside manner and very gentle and personable. The staff are also fantastic, accommodating, and patient. I am so thankful our paths crossed and will look forward to my cleanings with my new family dentist. Dr. Staten is phenomenal!

Myself and 2 of my children had our first visit at Old School dental yesterday. I can not say enough about this place and Dr. Staten and his staff. My family has found our forever dentist for sure!!! My oldest who hasn’t like any of the last 4 dentist we have gone to loved this place. We found out that cavity we were told our family had were not actually there. 6 on my Son and 8 on myself to be precise. I love the fact that it always smells like cookies and I think this went a long way in putting my kids at ease. Dr. Staten’s assistant was wonderful and I received the best cleaning I have every had. She even removed old cement from when I had braces over 20 years ago. Which might not seem like a big deal but it was huge to me the spots have always drove me crazy. I was always told it was part of my tooth and I knew it wasn’t. We were the last patients of the day yet no one rush or made us feel like it was a bother to stay and help us. Dr. Staten even spent time sitting and talking to me about my teeth and my kids teeth. I just can’t say enough about how awesome these people and practice is. If you have been looking for a dentist, give them a try I bet you won’t be look for one anymore.

This office is amazing! My whole family has been going to them since they opened and every time is like walking into a place of friends! I just took my 2 girls in for their appt and Dr. Jonah asked how we were doing and I told him that I would be better if he started taking my insurance (I have to switch due to new job/ new insurance). He had me get him a copy of my insurance and is going to look into it…who does that?! They are seriously the BEST from the moment you walk in the door to the very end of your appt. Would recommend for children AND adults!

The most efficient and well run business I have been in a LONG time! Kate and Dr. J were so friendly and honest! Didn’t try to upsell anything which I really appreciated as compared to most dentists. From the first interaction with that nice lady behind the counter, to the super awesome swag at the end which included an awesome tshirt-it made going to the dentist a joy not a pain!

Sharon Miller (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Staten is the best!! He has helped me twice now in 2 very scary and painful situations. This week when my jaw dislocated he was so compassionate and helped me. He not only called in a medicine to help but he took the time to bring it to my home and he was able to help put my jaw back in place. Thank you so much!

It has been over 2 yrs since I had my teeth cleaned, due to the plandemic… I was expecting pain, cause that has been my experience with past dentists. Well let me just say that this was NOT the case in my visit to Old School Dental! Absolutely pain free cleaning done by Melanie!!! It was AMAZING, and I highly recommend them, and especially Melanie!

Dr. Staton and his staff are absolutely a Class A business! I get nervous when I go to the dentist and Dr. Staton and his staff make me feel comfortable and at ease! They work with incredible accuracy, efficiency and professionalism! Dr. Staton is also very involved in the community and a great human being!

I had a great time at Old school Dental. The whole experience felt very inviting from the moment I walked through the front door. From the well designed interior space to very pleasant staff, they gave me a great experience for my routine dental cleaning. Their staff was well educated and could answer any questions you have. They have modern equipment so they are ready to take on any dental work you may need. My dentist was Dr. Kristin and she was AMAZING! She is very nice, smart, funny, and made me feel like I was at home. 10/10 for this dental office and their awesome staff!

Dr. Staten, I wanted to thank you for your immediate response to my situation. It is not very common for companies to truly stand up for their core values. Everyone uses words like honesty, transparency, value, trust, and commitment. However very few demonstrate these with their actions. In my personal experience, I contacted you and your team well after hours. Due to the pain I was experiencing, you did not hesitate in making room in your team’s schedule first thing the following morning. Thank you and your team for really demonstrating your value statement “Old School Dental, where modern technology meets old school values!” Again, THANK YOU!

I GOT A NEW DENTIST ❤️ Last night I broke half a tooth off down to the gum line. I was more than concerned about what was going to happen from here. After a recommendation from My son, he contacted OLD SCHOOL DENTAL, who in turn contacted me. This morning I went to see Dr. Jonah Staten and his staff. It is always nerve wracking when going to see a new medical Dr. or Dentist when you already have an issue. From the time I stepped foot in the office they made me feel at ease. in no time at all I was walking out with a fixed tooth, no pain and a fresh baked peanut butter cup cookie. This was the best experience I have ever had at a Dentist’s office. If you need a dentist, you need to go and see Jonah and his wonderful staff. Thank you so much, I will see you in 6 months❤️

You guys are just straight up AWESOME !! Everyone was so welcoming . My 6 yr old was scared to go even though she’s been there before and you guys were so patient and even “cleaned and counted “ her stuffed animals teeth also. Thank you so much for also taking the time to get ahold of me and letting me know my sons shoe was accidentally left in the parking lot. Thank you all for just being awesome and showing people true hospitality !

Best dental experience I’ve ever had , and I’ve had a lot. The dentist is my worse fear , but the staff here was phenomenal. They’re all super nice and I felt absolutely no pain during my procedures. Highly recommend to everyone. Thanks ya’ll for your superior service !

When I needed help with a wicked toothache and couldn’t get a call back from another dentist, Old School Dental came to my rescue! I saw these great recommendations on Facebook, and here on Google, so I gave them a call. The reviews don’t lie! They scheduled me in quickly, and walked me through some options (and I liked that they presented me with multiple treatment plans and answered my endless questions). Ultimately, I elected to schedule a tooth extraction, and so we set a date. Throughout both visits, they took excellent care of me; especially during the extraction procedure, always making sure I was comfortable throughout. I’m just so impressed by everyone there. Plus, they are so friendly, and they give you a cookie when you leave! Already scheduled a cleaning later this summer — definitely found a new dentist!

Best dentist I’ve been to in my 15 years in Central Ohio! Every staff member I encountered was welcoming and kind. My appointment started on time and went quickly. The dentist came up with solutions to fix some old dental work that I wasn’t happy with and all for a reasonable price. An added bonus was I left with a T-shirt and a cookie!

Marisa P. from Pataskala, OH (Source: Yelp)


Have you ever looked forward to going to the dentist? Have your kids ever counted down the days until their dental cleaning? No? If not, you should definitely visit Dr. Staten because I assure you that you will not ever look back! Dr. Staten and his team are absolutely amazing. Each time that I go for a teeth cleaning, I am greeted by such kind and pleasant people no matter the time or day. I am treated wonderfully by all of the employees and feel nothing but welcomed by Dr. Staten. It is truly such a good feeling to know that we have someone in our community who cares about our health AND our lives outside of our teeth! It is a blessing to be able to go to Old School Dental. Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!

R S. from South Columbus, Pickerington, OH (Source: Yelp)


Warm, welcoming and professional!! Great Experience for first visit!!! This office is serious about showing that they care about you as an individual and not just a paycheck! Impressive accommodations and cheerful staff. Great dental cleaning. I didn’t need any other dental services right now, but look forward to his expertise as needed. I’ve had a number of bad experiences earlier in my life with dentists, and Dr Staten took his time talking with me to help me feel comfortable. Try him…you’ll like him!!

I have been going to Old School Dental for a while dr. Staton and his staff always does such an amazing job and makes me feel like family and today our youngest daughter got to go for her first appointment she absolutely loved it thank you guys for making her feel so comfortable she talked about her appointment all day she can’t wait to come back to see you all again we would highly recommend you to anyone they make going to the dentist so much easier and such a wonderful experience at the dentist

Absolutely amazing service and experience. It was my sons first time at the dentist. I was so surprised when they had a kids show playing on a large TV in the room for him! Kate explained everything she was doing in a really fun way so that he would not be nervous. When he was done he got a new toothbrush with Spider-Man on it, a toy out of the “toy chest” and the best of all…a hand made tooth fairy pillow to use when he starts losing teeth. I go to this dentist also. High recommend! 10 stars!

My son has been coming to Old School for about a year, he said they where the best. I had to find a dentist by the 1st of the year, so I thought I would try them. I will tell you the staff is wonderful, Dr. Staten is the best. Great atmosphere, Old School Dental knows how to treat there patients. I will not be going anywhere, unless Dr. Staten retires.

Bob D. from Pataskala, OH (Source: Yelp)


I was experiencing a dental emergency. I had a broken tooth.  I called and found out that on this day they were not seeing patients. The doctor wasnt even coming in at all. I received a phone call from Dr. Jonah Staten who told me to come in and he would see what the problem was. He had no assistants , only Michelle working the front desk. Dr Staten took care of my problem all by himself with great chair side manner and equal expertise. We talked alot and joked. He was like a friend ive known for years.  I highly recommend his service. And this is someone that hasnt been to the dentist in 32 years.  I will go there from now on.

When I was called back for my visit, I was greeted with smiles and made to feel welcome. When I started to get anxiety, one of the employees stood there and talked and listened to me. Everyone there was so sweet and kind and made my visit a good one when normally I hate going to the dentist. I have been scolded in the past for not brushing my teeth like I should at times and when I apologized bc I forgot to do so that morning, they smiled at me and said it was perfectly fine! No one there treated me bad or anything! Honestly, it was the best dentist visit I’ve had in a long time!

Like others not a big fan of dentist. BUT Old school doctors and techs were amazing with little pain . I had 3 teeth removed and a filling at 7:00 am buy 12:00 noon was able to eat soup . I am feeling good with little or no pain .. Thank you old school for your expertise in taking such great care . I really hated to go home today . Really amazed with low prices . Looks like ya got me hooked . See you soon

The dentist is the worst place on earth to go, it makes the DMV look like Disney… Some people (me) avoid it so much we don’t go for literal decades. This place changes that paradigm, I’d tell you my dental assistants name, but she is mine, and you can’t have her. If you are human, you should go here. I can’t express how much this place makes a negative experience as positive as possible. The pinnacle of health professionals.

I am beyond thankful for all of the referrals that sent me to this Dentist office! I have never felt such compassion as a patient from all staff. it started right at check in till I left. I can’t say thank you enough to Faith, and Dr. Staten for making me feel so comfortable even with my enormous fear. My heart needed that appointment yesterday. Finding you guys is nothing short of a blessing.

It had been quite a while since my last dental appointment so I was pretty anxious, and was also starting as a new patient at Old School Dental. As I walked in the door I was greeted with many smiling faces. The hygienist was prompt, gentle, and my cleaning was completed with care as to not cause pain to my sensitive teeth. The office appeared very clean, and staff was kind, efficient, and courteous. I highly recommend stopping in the next time you are due for a cleaning!

Ashley Nicole (Source: Facebook)


My dear friend recommended this dentist to me while I was having a tooth crisis! They were able to get me in in a very timely manor while my dentist was away. They listened and took care as if I have been seeing them for years. it was comforting. Not to mention how visually satisfying the building is! Wish we lived closer that’s for sure!

Chipped a front tooth last night, was able to make an appointment first thing this morning. Had the most amazing experience I have ever had at a dentist office. The entire staff was phenomenal. The patient care and customer service was so fabulous that I have decided to switch from my regular dentist to Old School Dental moving forward. Thank you to the entire staff.

The staff was very pleasant and professional, the work was thorough and gentle. Future work was explained very well with a price and date before I left. The facility was clean and very interesting to see, with the old school building structure packed with new technology, X-rays appeared on a screen in front of me less than a minute after being taken.

This dental office is great place to go. Today was my third visit and my son’s second visit. He’s 10 and they pulled a tooth today… :0 They were SO good with him and very gentle. Usually, he’d be trying to talk his way out of the chair but they were amazing. I was the anxious one watching quietly. The girls at the desk are pretty awesome, too.

I was so pleased after leaving old school dental today with my son. They took such good care of him and made him feel so comfortable for his first ever cleaning . I will always be using them for all my future dental care. The facility is clean and neat – staff is extremely friendly and all around the best experience. Thank you old school dental!
