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

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


Dr. Benefield is absolutely fantastic! My husband and I have both seen many dentists, and she is our favorite by far. She NEVER tries to oversell or talk you into work you don’t really need. I was going to a dentist before where they claimed I needed a filling or some kind of work EVERY time I went in. I haven’t needed a single filling since I started seeing Dr. Benefield something like 10 years ago. She now sees both of our children as well, and is absolutely awesome with them. She and her staff are extremely friendly and take an interest in our lives. I cannot say enough good about her. If you have even considered finding a new dentist, go to her now!

5 stars for this office and team. Dr Benefield is fantastic. She is smart, skilled, and kind and I trust her. My dental hygienist Meredith is wonderful, thorough but gentle and very attuned to how I’m doing during the process. My teeth are very clean each time and it’s a far better experience than I’ve had in the past. Kelsey and Brittany are a wonderful presence at the front with questions or scheduling issues, there is great customer service here. Strongly recommend this office.

Dr. Benefield is the BEST dentist I have ever seen! She’s kind, competent, has excellent bedside manner, and her skills are at the very top of her field! I have been a patient of hers for about 4 years now and have recommended her to all my family and friends. I have heard the same review of everyone I have ever sent her way! Her team are also among the sweetest and most personable people you will ever come across at a dentist office. Everyone seems happy to be there! I really can’t recommend her enough! My husband had some dental work done by her and he also will never go anywhere else.

Dr. Benefield has been my dentist for many years and she is just fantastic. I will not go to any other dentist. She is professional, caring and trusting. Dr. Benefield did a crown for one of my molars and she did an excellent job. I have recommended her to all my friends and they all thank me for it. They are all happy with her services.

At the dentist, Ms. Maria Benefield did put a crown in my tooth, it made me feel like I liked her. She smiled and giggled at me, as I grabbed her hand, rubbed her back hand, softly (massaging her knuckles), and she told Dr. Scott that I like her. With the crown in my tooth, it had a MYSTERIOUS side effect inside. It’s called, “Sweet Ultrasonic Happy Gas” it’s like laughing gas. And when I said to Ms. Maria before I walk out, I just gotta say how much I like her for 5 minutes, I immediately smiled at her, and she smiled at me. I was tingling with happiness, while Ms. Maria and I are happy for each other. We had a mysterious day at the dentist. Without any problems at all, we both smiled at each other and we have been liking each other since we were happy, just because Dr. Scott wants me to keep the crown in my tooth, without breaking it. My heart’s pounding and tingling, ever since I’ve made her happy and she made me happy.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Benefield for about 9 years. Because of her, I actually enjoy going to the dentist! She’s caring, gentle, and extremely knowledgeable. The office staff and hygienists are friendly, pleasant, and always make me feel welcome. I’ve recommended her to several friends and they’ve also had great experiences. Highly recommend!

Penny H. from Athens, GA (Source: Yelp)


I had a crown come off 12/23!  Could not find anyone over the holiday weekend.  This morning called Dr. Benefield’s office and they fit me in their schedule!  Dr. Alan Weinstein cemented my crown back in and all is great again!  Now to enjoy my Christmas prime rib just a day late!

I met Maria years ago when she started leasing space in the building I worked at. She is a wonderful person. I told her I had a terrible dentist phobia. I also have very sensitive teeth. She was so nice and talked me into coming in to her practice. I was so happy I did! They were gentle and kind and caring with me. I had not had a cleaning in awhile so I had to get a temp crown and get a cavity filled. I am proud to say I had no pain. It was amazing. Now I get my teeth cleaned twice a year and am cavity free!

Rudy Rojas (Source: Google)


Maria and her staff are great. Maria is GREAT with children and even better with anxious adults – like me. She has a special touch to deal with them. Had my cleaning visit today. Early, on time, in and out by 8:45 a.m. scheduled next visit -follow up , and the best part, they do the insurance filing. Highly recommend this practice.!

I’ve been going to see Dr. Benefield for about 8 years now. First and foremost, her staff is always so kind and professional every time I go. Dr. Benefield is one of the sweetest most gentle dentist I have ever encounter. I highly recommend her. She’s always made herself available when I’ve had an emergency. I now live an hour away from her practice but I make the trip to see her every six months.

Dr. Benefield has the best dental practice and I’m very fortunate to have found them! The staff is exemplary and highly professional! The staff are always smiling, always say hello, and are happy to help with any issue that may arise. I’ve been with them for over a year and I couldn’t be happier! Additionally, Dr. Benefield talked me into getting braces at 48 and it was the best decision I could’ve made for my smile!

Dr. Benefield and her team truly embody the spirit of quality healthcare. The office team are all very engaged in making me feel like I have a team of specialists looking out for my dental healthcare. In addition they are wonderful at knowing who I am as a person and for my family members are having and invested interest in my overall well-being. Everyone on the team is Fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking high-quality dental care.

Dr. Benefield and her staff with awesome. The entire new patient visit was very smooth, minimal wait time, and my dental anxiety was put to ease immediately. The X-ray process was painless. After xrays Dr. Benefield examined my mouth, head and neck. My gums were measured and she demonstrated proper brushing and flossing techniques. The dental hygienist was great as well. It was a smooth cleaning with minimal pain. I could not recommend Dr. Benefield and her stiff enough!

Jeff King (Source: Google)


I cannot say enough about Dr. Benefield and the care I receive from her and her staff. I’m older so I’ve been to more than a few dentists in my years and Dr. Benefield is, without a doubt, the most professional and considerate dentist who I’ve been to for dental care. I honestly don’t know why anyone would go anywhere else in the entire Atlanta area. Thank You Dr. Benefield for taking such great care of me…and my teeth!

I’ve been going to Dr. Benefield practice for a little over 2 years, and I absolutely love it ! I was a patient at another practice, and right after they took my braces off, they said I needed an additional super expensive treatment for my teeth. I decided that I needed a second opinion. I visited Dr Benefield’s practice and it was the best choice ever. It turns out all I needed was a dental cleaning!! She is not only professional but also trustworthy. Now my whole family are patients of her. I absolutely recommend Dr Benefield. Her staff specially Brittany and Diane are also top notch. Always friendly and willing to help. I feel very comfortable during my visits.

Dr. Benefield is the best dentist I have ever been to. I’ve been to multiple practices, and dentists who always claimed I had cavities or needed this or that. Since I started seeing Dr. Benefield several years ago, she has not found one cavity or told me I needed a single procedure. She does NOT recommend procedures casually or tell you you need things you don’t. We have been taking our sons to her as well since they were each 2, and they also love her, and because of her and her staff, love going to the Dentist. We live in Johns Creek, so it’s a drive to get to her office, but it is worth the drive, even with two young boys in rush hour. She is the absolute best, as is everyone in her office.

Dr. Benefield is hands down the best dentist I’ve ever gone to! She is extremely patient, kind, gentle, and very honest! I even take my little ones to see her. My 6 and 8 yr old have been going to her for a few years now. They love Dr. Maria!! All of her staff are so nice and patient also! I started seeing Dr. Benefield after I had gone to another dentist in the Buckhead area who had done a botched job on a few fillings. I was in so much pain when I came to Dr. Benefield. She was so patient and calm and fixed my tooth. I am so thankful to her and will never go to anyone else!

My recent dental visit with Dr. Maria Benefield was the best visit to a dentist I have ever had in my lifetime. I am a new patient and very nervous about going to the dentist even for a simple cleaning. However, upon entering the office her staff immediately put me at ease. They are very caring, friendly, professional and work as a team. When I met Dr. Benefield she too had the same attributes in addition to being very patient with me, making sure she gave me a thorough examination, identifying any dental problems, and she answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and she listened to what I had to say; really cared about my concerns. She discussed my diagnosis with me and gave me options for a solution. I highly recommend Dr. Benefield to anyone in need of a dentist for both routine check ups and dental problems. Also, the entire office follows COVID-19 precautions which are so important due to the current pandemic in addition to having a very inviting, clean and sanitary atmosphere and environment. Rev. Diane V. Collins/Aka: Dede Young

Heather B. from Roswell, GA (Source: Yelp)


After working in the dental field for 10 years, I worked as Dr. Benefield’s assistant for an additional 10 years. I can tell you that I’ve seen it all! I can also honestly say, the only dentist I would see is Dr. Benefield. I do not work with her currently because I decided to stay at home with my 4th child but she is the most honest, gentle, patient, talented and kind hearted person you will ever meet. The current staff is her hand picked team that are truly there for patient care! She is constantly going to classes and seminars to keep up with new and improved products to fit each persons wants and needs and to stay informed of the latest technology. She was always very eager to keep learning and to help others. * I read the one star review from the nameless person and I’m thinking it must have been a walk-in/emergency patient (not of record) that either wanted free work or that got mad about something and wanted to try and hurt her business for some reason (you always have a couple of those). In my 10+years with her, this has NEVER happened….plus we make temporary crowns while the patient waits, in office, in about 20 minutes. We always check the bite, the contacts (flossing between the teeth), etc before seating it with TEMPORARY cement…which comes off pretty easy. If he wanted a temp crown made from the lab (porcelain) then yes it took weeks AND there is a lab fee (which isn’t cheap) AND every once in a while (very rarely) the porcelain chips but that’s not her fault (it’s called a temporary for that reason…they can break). I remember one time that after we seated a permanent crown, the permanent cement attached to the next tooth….but using the serrated strip, it’s easy to remove. She’s definitely not neglectful, negligent or new to dentistry! I hate that someone would sit behind their computer/phone and write things that could ruin a practice when I know first hand how truly outstanding she is and I’ve seen the good, bad and ugly sides of dentists!! His story isn’t even in the order of how she operates. Not to mention, I’ve seen her give more things away and do things out of the goodness of her heart to help others! She’s wonderful and will find a way to work with your insurance or come up with a plan to do what’s best for each person. I’d give her 10 stars if I could!

I have all my dental work with Dr. Benefield.  I live in New York city and fly twice a year for the past 6 years just to have dental work done with her.  She has the most absolutely keen eye for detail, and her services are extremely comprehensive.  She is very experienced, and honest. Her high end services are affordable and top of the line.  I recommend her to all my friends and clients.

Dr. Benefield is the most compassionate and genuinely kind person who makes her patients feel comfortable and at ease. She is an amazing dentist who does the highest quality work, with her attention to detail and artistry. She delivers excellent care that goes above and beyond. You actually enjoy coming to the dentist!

I have been going to Sandy Springs Dentistry for over 17 years now ! I am one who tends to put off the dentist whenever I can. However, the professionalism of the staff and the skill and sensitivity to me as a patient Dr Maria Benefield gives; makes me feel safe and secure. Dr Benefield is always up to date on the best equipment and technology in dentistry. I would not consider going anywhere else! She is always looking out for the best for her patients, that I do know! Sincerely, Matt Quinlan

I have been seeing Dr.Benefield for over 10 years now. She is the kindest and most genuine Dentist I have ever met. I refuse to see any other dentist as her honesty has proven itself time and time again. I’m so grateful for her and her amazing staff! They truly care! From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave they all embrace you with kindness and smiles! Brittany at the front desk is super sweet as well and very professional! I am always recommending this office to friends and family!

Dr. Benefield is the best!! I have been going to her for several years and just decided to take my boys (9 and 6). My little guy has a HUGE fear of dentist and Lauralee was so patient and calm with him during his cleaning. He left saying “This is the best dentist EVER”! The office staff is fantastic! I would recommend Dr. Benefield to anyone looking for a dentist.

Dr. Benefield has been my dentist for many years and she is just fantastic. I will not go to any other dentist. She is professional, caring and trust her. Dr. Benefield did a crown for one of my molars and she did an excellent job. I have recommended her to all my friends and they all thank me for it. They are all happy with her services.

This is the guest dentist in town I have been to several and hands down the BRST service and workmanship in Atlanta! Dr Maria Benefield is not only kind and professional but highly skilled in her field! Her staff is a reflection of her beautiful spirit! I recommended several of my family members and friends and they are grateful that they found her! I can’t enough about her and her staff I’m just blessed that I found her!

Dr. Benefield over the years has gone above and beyond for my family. She has spent extra time and effort with my children. When my daughter had a complicated orthodontic case, Dr. Benefield made special calls and took the time to make sure my daughter had the best possible care. She called me personally several times along the way to check in and make sure we were being taken care of, and we felt like we were in the best hands. She makes us feel comfortable and we trust her completely.

Dr. Benefield has been my dentist for a little over a year. I have been to countless dentists before who left me disappointed with their poor customer service and their extreme pushiness. Not Dr. Benefield! Her staff is an absolute pleasure to speak to and will go out of their way to work with you to find a convenient appointment and her hygienists are caring and friendly as well. Dr. Benefield herself is knowledgeable, friendly, and very thorough. I have been recommending her to all my friends.

I have seen Dr Benefield for several years for cleanings, extractions and root canals. She is the most sensitive Dentist I have ever used. She alway ensures you are comfortable before and during the procedures. I trust Dr Benefield’s decisions and work more than any Dentist I have seen in the last 30 years. I highly recommend her.

Heather Cofer (Source: Google)


Hands down the only place I would go! Dr. Benefield has been my dentist and my 4 children’s dentist for 11 years. She is very nice, gentle and caring. I’m very scared of the dental office and she understands my fears and does everything possible to make me feel comfortable (I have NEVER seen a shot or felt it because of her technique). She is very conservative and definitely has the patients best interest in mind. I have referred friends for second opinions (with ridiculous treatment plans) and she takes the time to explain why they do or don’t need the treatment and gives two or three options, taking the time with patients so they understand. I know I can trust her and can call anytime with questions. I love the staff as well and have enjoyed becoming a part of their dental family!

The best dental experience I’ve had in Atlanta in over 15 years!!! I’ve been extremely loyal to my other 2 dentists in Atlanta. When my previous dentist suggested that I do a bunch of “elective” dental work because I had a cavity, I decided to get a second opinion. I went to Dr. Benefield with my concerns. She examined me, found that I didn’t have a cavity and what do you know, I also didn’t need to spend the $2000 for the elective dental work the popular Dental Spa down the road was suggesting. Bottom line, I trust her and her practice to be honest with me. There is no doubt she is this way with all of her patients!

My family and I have been going to Dr. Benefield and Weinstein for years. When you walk in you are always greeted with a smile and by far the best part is their punctuality. When you walk in you never have to wait around, always on time. Dr. Benefield is the best out of five dentists I’ve switched around to. P.s. Most beautiful dentist in atlanta

Dr. Benefield has to be one of the best dentists in Atlanta! I’ve been her patient for over 4 years – my husband has been even longer. He’s the one who got me to start seeing her. He would come home after his dentist visits and just rave about how wonderful his dentist was. He was right! Dr. Benefield is very professional as well as kind, sweet, and always cheerful. She always wears a smile and has a warm, inviting aura about her. She takes away any dental jitters anyone may have. She also goes above and beyond. I called her office in a panic because my daughter had busted her mouth on the playground and wouldn’t let me look inside to see if any teeth had been damage. Her receptionist kept me on the phone while she went and told Dr. Benefield. Dr. Benefield made herself available so that we could come in right away. Dr. Benefield calm bedside manner made my daughter feel comfortable and at ease. I couldn’t believe how easy it was for her to get my daughter to open her mouth and check everything. She truly is gifted and I can tell she loves what she does. I recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking for a dentist. She’s amazing!
