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

I despise going to the dentist and I spent 5 hours here today and really felt cared for. I will not go anywhere else from now on. I was a new patient today and they require a 90 min new patient appt where they really want to get to know you and your history and what your needs are. They take a crap ton of x rays and also pictures of each tooth, but they gave me a blanket and a tv and Amanda made me feel safe and cared about and talked about my dental anxiety with me for a long time. I felt like she wasn’t just going through the motions but she actually cared. Very rare these days. The doctor was very nice. They were able to get me in later in the afternoon for a cleaning( someone canceled). It was really uncomfortable because my gums were very irritated and Ashley really helped me get through it. I’m so happy I took my family to this dentist!!

I’ve been going to this denistry for about 5 years now. Not once have I had anything less than an amazing experience. The dental hygienists and assistants are all wonderful. I’ve come to know just about all of them. I love everyone’s personality and they do a 10/10 job. Dr. Podvia is my doctor. She is kind, attentive, and does wonderful work. My front tooth was severely chipped due to poor dentist work in another state. I also had a crown that was put on incorrectly. Dr. Podvia and her assistants fixed BOTH of these problems PERFECTLY. There is no comparison to the poor work I had done before. I didn’t realize how much I hid my smile until I had nothing to hide. It sounds silly, but getting my dental work done here actually made me smile more in my daily life! I couldn’t be more thankful for this wonderful staff. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

My family and I have been seeing both doctors for two years now. This is the most incredible dentistry I have ever been to in my entire life. They’re so compassionate, friendly and affordable. You know you have found the perfect dentist, when you tell your kids you have a dentist appointment that day and they beg to go with you. Everyone in this office is amazing, from the front desk, to the hygienist, both doctors, and even the sweet ladies at checkout. Thanks everyone! They should get 10 stars!

Went in today for a cleaning & x-rays. It’s a very friendly & clean environment. Amber was my dental hygienist & she was amazing. Offered me a blanket, was very gentle on my teeth, showed me a before and after photo of them, and she even introduced me to a bluetooth electric toothbrush & also suggested products & methods that would work best for me. I look forward to going again in 6 months. 🙂

Dr. Podvia is the best in the world. She also has the best partners and staff anywhere. They make you feel like close family and take very good care of anything you may need. If you need any dental work, this is the place to be. I love you guys very much. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I smile and laugh all the time now.

The best dentist office I have ever been too!!! The friendliest staff & they always make sure you are happy! Podvia & Stanford have a very, very gentle touch and immediately make you feel comfortable! Almost forgot, the office is kept immaculate! I would and have recommended my family and friends get all their dental needs met here!

I love this office and all of the staff! They are quick, efficient, and keep me up to date on the most current and newest procedures to keep my teeth and mouth in top shape. The entire office is kind, caring, and gives the best service. The Doctors are fantastic and our hygienist, Faith, is superb! Love them!

Wonderful staff all the way around. They help calm nerves, work insurance issues out, and provide quality dental care. The Hygienist and Dentists put extra effort into making sure you are as comfortable as possible during all treatment, from an exam to fillings and more. I am so grateful to have such a genuinely caring team take care of my dental health!

I love this office. I am so afraid of the dentist and have only had great experiences here. The anxiety of having to have so much work done, has overwhelmed me. They have helped me to plan my work and finances so that I can get my work done, in an order I am comfortable with. Love seeing the same technician each time I come in.

For about the past 3 years I’ve been with Podvia & Stanford and can’t get myself to leave. Their hospitality and friendly atmosphere never cease to amaze me. Thank you Ms. Stacey for the wonderful care and service I received and Ms. Lisa for watching over my bike. I highly recommend this dentistry and because of my experience there I’ve taken an interest in dental hygienist, possibly dental school.

These folks do great work and are very responsive. I had a crown come off while traveling over the weekend. Today is a holiday for the practice but a tech came in anyway to temporarily attach the crown. Now I can enjoy the 4th of July holiday and the permanent repair will be done on Thursday, their first regular workday since I got back. I have been coming here for dental care for three years and have always been happy, but the treatment I received for this was beyond my expectations.

I can’t say that I enjoy going to the dentist but I can say that when I go to Drs. Podvia & Stanford’s office that I am greeted with a smile and all the employees are friendly, and make you feel welcome. I also appreciate being seen at my appointment time and not having to sit around waiting to be seen. I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone looking for a place to go!

Podvia and Standford are the best dentists in the area and the entire office offers the best customer service I have ever received anywhere. They sincerely care for their customers and personally get to know you as a person. When I run into any of the staff outside the office, they stop and talk to you as if they were apart of your family!!! Absolutely love them and recommend them to all. Make an appt and see for yourself!

I’ve been working as an assistant for Dr. Standard for over the 15 years , but not only is she my Boss, she’s been my dentist as well! I knew I wanted to write a review, I just didn’t know if I wanted to write one as the assistant or the patient. Then I realized what a great opportunity to give a behind the scenes look into this great office and these awesome dentists ! As an assistant we work so closely to the dentist . We ( I ) almost become their shadow, right hand man, be one step ahead of them at all times. Dr. Standard and Dr. Podvia both have been practicing dentistry for over 20yrs and together 11yrs ago they created this awesome practice! They complement each other so well !!! It is important to me that people know when they make a decision to come to our office, that they have made the best choce!! These woman are incredibly dedicated to their patients and work ! Patient care here is like no other. It’s important to them to make things right ! To get people to better oral health ! Give people confidence in their smiles ! We are like family here, and if you become a patient then you’re family too. It’s important to us to know our patients! If I had to describe Dr. S and Dr.P in five words it would be this : determined, caring, very particular(oh that’s 2) , loyal, and honest! This is what they also expect from us , and I’m okay with that 🙂 because it’s important to me that people leave our office better than they came in. I take pride in knowing that our patients leave with wonderful beautifully made crowns, that the fillings we place have been checked over, given that extra couple of minutes , to triple check that all cavity is removed! That someone who covers their mouth because they are so embarrassed of their missing teeth, have tears in their eyes the day they finally look into the mirror and see a brand new smile!! The patient who can’t even sit in the dental chair because of fear , taking the time to talk with him finding out what exactly triggers that fear and be able to help him with options and a plan ! I could go on and on. . From our other fantastic assistants or our knowledgeable hygienists to the awesome ladies at front desk !! Tons and tons of experienced people to help you!! The best dentist office ever!!! I’m thankful!

After being very unhappy with my last dentist (and experiences), I am so very grateful that I made an appointment with Dr. Podvia. I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist and every single staff member that I have interacted with at this office has been nothing but kind and caring. Quality care (before, during, and after appointments), new technology, clean waiting and exam rooms….I’d highly recommend them to anyone!

I have been coming to this office for over a year and I love it. I love the very friendly open atmosphere. All of the ladies that work in the office are very nice and polite. Doctor Standford makes you feel right at home. she is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this practice to any one. I also highly recommend Faith to anyone looking for a cleaning. She is awesome!

I started seeing Dr. P in 2005 after I retired from the military. She and her staff are the best of the best. As crazy as it may sound I enjoy going in for my cleaning and check up. Everyone at her office is friendly and polite courteous and professional. You feel at ease and at home when you go there. There is no other dentistry for me than that of Dr. P. I want to say thank you to all of you for taking care of me for all these years.

The team is Very professional, helpful and they understand that sometimes life gets in the way of our dental needs.  They have a great call/text reminder system to make keeping up easy and they are remarkably easy to work with when navigating changes to appointments.  My insurance changed and having good service is worth the small out of network cost.

Dorothy C. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


Very nice and friendly staff.  Clean & spacious rooms.  Staffs are very caring to the patient.  They always offer us blanket, eye shades and TV channels.  Guests WIFI are also available inside the clinic.  Very high tech equipment.  My whole family has been going there for years now.   Always very accommodating!!

I have been a patient at another Dentist Office in Jacksonville for the past 20 years. I was told so many good things about this office along with it is much more convenient to my residence so I gave it a try. I wasn’t disappointed. The experience from my very first visit, to the cleaning and onto having 2 of my caps replaced has been a journey. This is one of those offices that the entire staff truly enjoys working there and are professional, cordial and personable. They greet you by name, share stories and ensure your visit is as painless as possible. My only regret is that I didn’t find this place sooner. If your looking for a family Dentist then start here, you’ll be glad you did.

I have never like going to the dentist. Thus said, I was very surprised at the thorough review of my mouth. They performed exams that I have never had any other Dentist to do. I was happy and that does not happen in a dentist office for me. Plus the staff was excellent. I give my approval of this office.

My son Derrick had a great experience for his first dental visit. Faith was very patient and sweet, informative. I really hope he gets to work with her again. The dentist was was wonderful as well, seemed very honest, realistic about potential issues and what needed to be addressed and what needed to be monitored. I’m happy we had such a great first time experience there!

They are the best dental office I have ever been to. If you are looking for a thorough staff who care about you and your teeth, you need to go to this office! They found things wrong that a dentist I went to a month ago didn’t mention making me believe everything was perfectly fine. Everyone that works in the office are super friendly and helpful! Dr. Podvia and dental assistant Amanda were amazing!!!

Podvia and Stanford Dentistry an Associates are very professional and great at what they do, as well they are wonderful down to earth people too. The folks at this facility go above and beyond to make going to the dentist as good as it gets. They are very good at explaining and making sure each patient understands what has to be done. I personally would recommend this Office of Podvia and Stanford to anyone looking for great family dentistry, they came highly recommended and have been everything I expected. Great Dentist and Great Associates.

From the first contact and being told that “You Will Love Us” to every step of the way, I can’t begin to express the care and concern from each person, doctor Stanford’s treatment, and help with all of it that I received. Coming from someone who has avoided seeing a dentist for years because of fear, I walked away with gratitude, love and even a thought of “piece of cake” for my care.

I absolutely love the ladies at this office. Faith is the hygienist who does my teeth and she is very personable and never once made me feel rushed. In addition, I never have a long wait for my appointments which is important to me. The one thing I don’t like (which happened in my previous visit) was the hygienist was wearing one pair of gloves the entire time (while cleaning my teeth, touching the computer and mouse, and touching xray button etc.) When I mentioned it to her she told me well we clean the keyboards and mouse. Being in the medical field and working with patients DAILY, I didn’t like this especially when your working inside my mouth. I did express my concerns to the hygienist and Dr, (I’m not sure if it was resolved, because I haven’t had that same lady again.. I refuse!!) This is the only thing I would recommend some training on. It only takes a few extra seconds in my opinion to remove gloves and look on computer if you absolutely need to. Otherwise you can review my teeth on the computer prior to my arrival. Overall, I highly recommend this office to anyone, conveniently located for anyone on the northside and staff is FRIENDLY. I absolutely love Dr. Podvia (she has always been sweet with great bedside manner).

Dental offices could learn a thing or two after spending a day at P&S and watching how smoothly things are run and how everyone works together cohesively. My husband and I have been going to Podvia and Stanford for a little over 2 years now and even had our 2 children switched over from their pediatric dentist. The entire staff is a pleasure to work with and communicate with. They have their system down pat and everything runs extremely smoothly. I love that every time I go in for my cleaning, it’s always the same person so it’s nice to be able to catch up with them from the last visit. You will feel like you are a part of the P&S family and not just another patient for the day. Everyone always has a smile and is welcoming and so very nice!! The BEST dental office on the Northside of Jacksonville!

I always have a great experience with Faith the hygienist. Met Doctor Podvia for the first time and she’s super friendly and gave a great explanation of my treatment plans! We moved to Georgia a year ago and still travel to stay with Podvia and Standford! Thanks for taking great care of my smile and keeping my teeth happy and healthy!

They are the absolute best! I have been going to them for over 5 years and they really take great care of your teeth. Everytime I leave Podvia and Standford I leave knowing that they are a great family practice that makes sure your teeth are in their best shape. The love , care, and diligence they show on each and every visits makes all the difference. Xoxo

Drs. Podvia & Stanford have been my dentists for the last 6 years. They helped me finish up all of the medical treatments that I neglected through the years. They have stayed my dentists throughout this time because I can’t imagine finding a better dentist with nicer staff. Everyone is always friendly and helpful.
