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

Adam W. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to the dentist regularly since my youth and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Lyons and his staff. I usually don’t write reviews but its not very often that I have such a refreshing experience that catches me off guard. The average dental exam at most offices consists of what treatment I need and why I’m not doing a good job with my brushing and flossing. Dr. Lyons found a way to put a positive spin on my visit by stating his goal was to help me dodge more invasive and expensive dental work by changing my behavior with my nutrition. That is honestly the most genuine thing I’ve ever heard in a dental chair. I highly recommend!

As someone who absolutes hates going to the dentist, this dynamic duo has changed my perspective. Dr. Drew & Dr. Joya made me feel so comfortable and eased my fears. They talked me thru everything before, during, & after. I’ve never felt so relaxed at the dentist in my life. I truly appreciate the patient care I received. The whole staff is great & Miss Janice at the front desk is so sweet & welcoming! The musical selection is great as well 😉 I’ll be looking forward to my next visit (something I never thought I’d say)! Thank you so much y’all!

Alaisha G. from Harris - Houston, Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I love smile savvy. I’ve been going here for about a year after my family and I moved. Scheduling appointments is quick and easy. And Chloe at the front desk is always a friendly face to see. There are a few hygienists and they are all super nice. Personally I hate mint flavored mouth products so I always ask for a different flavor. They even made a note in my file that I prefer piña colada toothpaste! . It sounds silly but it’s the little things that really make the experience for something like a dentist visit. The wait is never long at all to be called to the back or to see the dentist. (Dr. Lyon or Dr.Lyon )a super great duo. Her and her husband have a great personable practice. Glad we chose them

Awesome service! I love them as professionals and love the family connection on facebook with their clients. They stay up-to-date with technology in their field and also educate the patients on treatments. They started monitoring our youngest daughter’s gum health and incoming teeth when she was under a year old. They were kind enough to share a contact for us to take our children for services. We miss them so very much. We only switched because there was a change of insurance that was no longer covered and we would have had to pay first and file for reimbursement. Truly a dynamic duo!!! I definitely recommend their service!!!

The entire Smile Savvy staff’s wonderful. Efficient and caring team throughout, they are very focused on making sure you have a great experience. The hygienists are all so kind and they really pay attention to any concerns that are raised about dental issues, or what they themselves observe, and they are totally paying close attention! If you want an effective, professional and kind team, this is the place to go! Thank you Smile Savvy team!

David H. from Concord, NC (Source: Yelp)


I get to watch House of Cards while getting my teeth cleaned. What more could you want? I currently see the wife of the husband and wife duo, and on Yelp you may notice I am part of a husband and wife duo. I am the one that got my wife hooked on this place but she was the first to review it. The dentist cleans my teeth faster and without any bumping into my gums which was a frequent problem during cleaning from a hygienist. This place is worth the drive because it is so nice. They have free water to drink in the waiting area and the TV doesn’t just show dental infomercials.

Caldwell T. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


It’s been a full year already! After two cleanings and quite a few filling restorations, I can say it’s been great working with and being treated by Smile Savvy. Dr. Lyons is very thorough, patient and knowledgeable. His office staff are the nicest and very helpful. You can’t ask for a better team. The office is nice and comfortable. They offer massage chairs, movies while being serviced and refreshments. You will not be dissatisfied. They are highly recommended!

I moved to Charlotte in August and needed a dentist with a quick Google search I was lead to Smile Savvy and I was not disappointed. From the front door you are created by the staff they are nice friendly. Dr. Lyons was professional and friendly just like get staff. The office is very clean and modern. If you’re looking for a dentist your search ends here.

I was referred here by a client and I can’t thank her enough. I had a horrible experience last year at a local dentist and hadn’t been to anyone since, but decided to give the Lyons a try. This is by far the best experience I have ever had at a dentist office. The entire staff was friendly and truly amazing. I will be referring everyone here. Thanks so much Dr. Lyons for the great care.

Dr. Lyon and his team have something special! Their enthusiasm for dentistry and commitment to providing a top patient experience is clear from the moment you walk in. If you’re looking for a dental office that will treat you like family – look no further!

Smile Savvy Cosmetic Dentistry is exceptional in the care of their patients. My experience with Dr. Lyons as well as his staff has been absolutely a great experience. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a kind, loving, caring dentist as well as a caring staff. Such a blessing!!

A co-worker recommend smile savvy to me a few weeks ago. I finally had a need for a dentist and was able to utilize smile savvy. They have plenty of parking, a clean office space, great staff, and Dr. Lyons is amazing. I enjoyed my visit to the dentist and recommend smile savvy dentistry.

I have been a patient with Smile Savvy Cosmetic Dentistry for about 2 years. From day one, I have received excellent customer service. They also take the time to explain their process and provide information I need to obtain and achieve great oral health.

Excellent Dentist! I live 1 1/2 hours away and I followed him to Charlotte when I found out he was leaving the current practice. He is that good. Very nice, considerate, thoughtful. The wait time is never long and for a woman that is not fond of dentist, I love this dentist! He is very true to his word! Love all the Staff at the office!!

No matter where I live, I’ll fly back to get all my treatments from this dentist. I found them on google. Was just “window” shopping but this place had me at “Hello”. Life happens and dental cleaning/treatment was WAY overdue when I sought a dentist. I’m an entrepreneur so I typically only buy what I feel is absolutely necessary like liability and health insurance. So, this means my dental expense is out of pocket. I’ll just highlight some key things that I appreciate about this establishment. 1. Front desk and staff have impeccable customer service. 2. They have a membership option for those who don’t have insurance; like me. The membership offers a nice discount. And the discount increased from my first conversation because they changed some policies and I didn’t have to find out through the grapevine! They willingly applied the additional discount. 3. Everyone there has unconditional positive regard for the patient. They don’t judge and that’s what made me feel at ease. 4. They are all very reassuring. It helps keep your nerves calm because they understand that going to the dentist is daunting for most. 5. They are all consistently pleasant. They seem like they really love what they do. Only positivity! 6. They probably all were “A” students. They do great work. This isn’t my first rodeo! 7. I just couldn’t have had a better experience. 1 out of 10; they get a 20! Best decision you can make for your oral health and cosmetics!

Friendliest and top notch best Husband & Wife Dentist team ever. Super terrific staff. My husband and I have been coming to this dentist office since they opened. Every one is personable. It never fails to have a good conversation with Drs. Andrew or Joya Lyons, some of the best and friendliest people you will ever meet from the dentist’s to receptionist to the hygienist. 02/05/2020 another great visit. They work with top of the line technology and to put the icing on the cake, they also made front page of the “Dental Town” magazine voted by their peers I highly recommended this dental office.

We LOVE Smile Savvy! So much so that we are continuing to go there even though they are now out-of-network for us. We have been seeing Dr. Andrew and Dr. Joya Lyons for almost 2 years now, and they are both wonderful, caring, pleasant dentists. The hygienists are always cheerful, take time to explain what is going on, and reasons for what they are doing, which is especially helpful with my very nervous, cautious child. Sherry and the other staff are so helpful, always very upfront about our expected costs, so sweet and kind, and very knowledgeable when it comes to insurance and billing matters. We are always in and out quicker than expected, and they are so accommodating when we need an emergency appointment. We love love love our Smile Savvy family!!! Highly recommend, especially for nervous patients!!!

The staff was not only professional but extremely nice! Everyone greeted you with a smile and genuine conversation. If your looking for a great dentist with a family atmosphere, this is it. Dr. Andrew was extremely patient and answered all of my questions and his staff was very attentive to my and my husband’s needs. This was a great first experience.

I always love coming to this office! The staff are so friendly and accommodating! They treat you like family! Dr. Lyons and staff are so honest and friendly, and will refer you to the best in order to get that additional help with your teeth and gums! I have recommended so many people to this dentist, and they all love it! Just try these fabulous people, I promise you, it will be so worth it!

The overall experience was excellent. The receptionist was nice and friendly. The dental assistant was very professional and knowledgeable. She also did a good job in preparing you for the dental experience. The doctor then topped the visit off by explaining everything he did in detail. I felt like I was part of the dental family. It was a great experience.

Nicole J. from Huntersville, NC (Source: Yelp)


I was treated by Dr. Lyons and it was the best dental experience I ever had. I normally am terrified of the dentist but he put me at ease. He was very gentle and my mouth feels and looks great. He also explained everything thoroughly before he performed any procedures to make sure I understood what he was about to do. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lyons to anyone I meet. He will be my dentist for life!

Rasheeka F. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of this practice for about three years and the standard of service has been the same since day one. I am seen at my appointment time no matter what. For example, today my hygienist was delayed with another patient, so one of the dentists stepped in to complete my cleaning. I definitely recommend this dental practice. The facilities are clean and the customer service is excellent. P.S. They don’t push unnecessary treatments or services.

Ron B (Source: Google)


Dr. Drew is the best dentist in Charlotte! He makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire process as he’s working on your teeth. Very thorough explaining what he’s doing and frequently checks in on you. I was afraid of the dentist years ago but he made it an easy process. I highly recommend Smile Savvy to everyone!

Ivory Reid (Source: Google)


This team is remarkable! When I say team I mean all of them because you will see the teamwork and the love from the time you walk in and is greeted by Ms. J. The treatment was phenomenal! Both doctors are excellent! I love the family friendly atmosphere. Very business like and professional. Treatment was wonderful and detailed. I would definitely recommend.

Zia Leigh (Source: Google)


Love this place! Friendly staff and modern technology. Everything you need in dentistry for all including families and cosmetic offerings. Call ahead to confirm if needed for certain cosmetic specialties. I’ve only needed routine teeth cleaning. As long as I’m in area and insurance doesn’t pose a problem, I’ll be a patient. I started when I lived in Mt. Holly and now I’m 10 mins drive from home. Highly recommended!

Awurama D. from University City North, Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I was having a lot of pain after having my bottom wisdom teeth removed. I was very unhappy with how the oral surgeon who performed the procedure and her staff were treating my pain. I called Dr. Lyon’s office and was able to be seen that same day. I literally had a break down in the waiting room and was immediately comforted by one of the clinic staff. Dr. Lyons was so pleasant and had the best chair side manner. He listened to me and gave me his recommendations. He was able to get me in to see another oral surgeon that afternoon. I had such a great experience and will definitely be returning. Dr. Lyons and his staff are amazing! Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.

Monica M. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I was blown away with how great this dentist is! Let me outline all the great things: 1) Dentist cleans your teeth, not a technician; 2) Netflix while you get your teeth cleaned / examined; 3) Technology – newest everything; 4) Most comfortable exam chairs; 5) $5 gift cards for referring people (this place is so great I would do it for free); 6) Availability of appointments; 7) Saturday hours (they stopped doing this for now, great while it lasted); 8) Plenty of parking (I always get a spot right by the door); Best dentist ever. I will put my entire Yelp reputation on the line. I have been surprised at every turn how great everything here is. I have great dental insurance and I am eligible for three cleanings a year and I get all three. This is the first dentist I went to since moving back to Charlotte and it was night and day. I liked my previous dentist but the hygienist would sometimes nick my gums – especially the most sensitive place between my two front teeth. I had the wife every time from this husband and wife dentist duo – she never nicks my gums or causing any excessive discomfort. Not only is the dentist far more skilled at this than a hygienist, she is so much faster. NETFLIX! You can tell them what show you want to watch, what episode, and they will put it on and turn up the volume. Sometimes it is hard to hear because of what is going on but they will move the screen so you can see and turn it up so you can hear. No more awkward one sided conversation from the dentist – you can watch your favorite shows and before you know if you are ready to go. Technology – Netflix is not all they have. The newest x-ray machines (digital, portable handheld with minimal radiation). They have a wand that takes your picture and an electronic signature pad. All of this doesn’t matter much to me except it speeds up checking in and finishing up. It gets you in and out more quickly. They have email, text, and calls to remind you of your appointment. Chairs: these are new and super comfortable chairs. No discoloration, no tears, no rough spots, no worn through padding here or there. They are perfect. My last dentist had some nice chairs and one with plenty of duct tape on it – I always asked to avoid the rickety old chair and sometimes I was stuck with it. Not this place – every chair is perfect. Gift cards for referrals. This is special because this place is so great you can’t help but tell everyone about it. I didn’t know the dentist could be so convenient, quick, and enjoyable. You are going to pay me with Starbucks and Chic-Fil-A if I tell people how wonderful this place is? I am not getting paid for this Yelp review by the way. Appointments – you can get what you want when you want. No more pushing an appointment back a month to find a time you can actually use. I have found what I want within any 7 day period. I have a flexible schedule but my spouse can only do this on a Friday. There has been no problem finding the exact time my spouse wants on Friday. This is another big deal for me – some dentists make you bend over backwards to fit you in. They are also taking new patients here. I don’t know how they do it but they have great scheduling. Sadly the Saturday hours are gone. They might come back. I was very pleased they offered this because most dentists won’t even consider having a single second outside of the 9-5, and how can you not miss work if they only see you during work. This place opens up early and you can get an 8AM, this should help you reduce the work you miss. I always get a great spot and there is plenty of parking around. I get a spot right by the door, or a spot next to the bushes so nobody hits my car. This place is in the cut because it is at the far end of a strip of stores with a Harris Teeter as the anchor. You really need your GPS for this one – once you know what this is you won’t have any trouble finding it. At worst you cruise the parking lot until you get to one end and find this office. If you like your dentist I suggest you try this place: if you are like me you will be amazed how much you can like this place. Don’t settle for good enough – come here and something great. I am pulling hard for this practice because it is new. I want this place to stay around because I love it. I am now too spoiled to go back to how things used to be at my other dentists in Richmond, Virginia Beach, Winston-Salem, and Charlotte about 10 years ago. That is also a warning – this place will spoil you for all other dentists – be warned that once you come to Smile Saavy you can’t ever go back.

I came across Smile Savvy Cosmetic Dentistry on google search and once I read some reviews and I enjoyed reading the story about the dentists on their website. Their staff was very friendly and professional. Dr Andrew Lyons was great! He answered all the questions I had and was friendly as well. The office was clean and very comfortable, from the massage chairs to the Netflix on the televisions in the patient rooms. I’m happy to have chosen Smile Savvy as my new dentist office! They made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout my whole visit!

I met “Drew” during a road race & had great dialogue as we ran in 30 degree weather. Decided to give his Denistry a try & I enjoyed the visit. The staff members were very nice. The office space was beautiful & they play music. #winning Dr. Lyons was very professional in his demeanor , passionate in his helping & purposeful in his craft. Highly recommend this establishment to any one with teeth. �

Love this practice already! From my consultation to my next appointment the service has been amazing from check in to check out. Love how personalized the treatment process is as well. I have had some bad experiences with other dental offices that make me quite on edge when going to the dentist and this was the perfect place to change that! I did not want to be treated like “just another case” and they were very interactive and sensitive to my needs. They knew my name and utilized it often to address me or make sure I was okay. I am impressed at how comfortable the environment is especially experiencing the massage feature in the chairs! WONDERFUL. Lastly, they are amazing at what they do, very knowledgeable and informative, and I am 100% satisfied so far and look forward to continuing my treatment here. I Greatly recommend.

I had a wonderful experience here at Smile Savvy dentistry on today! They are awesome, from Sherry at the front desk to the dental hygienist to Dr. Lyons. You all Rock! I felt so comfortable being that I have neglected my teeth for sometime. You all assured me that you would take care of needs. Thank you and I look forward to seeing the Dentist again!

The staff was very attentive, prompt and I didn’t feel rushed during my visit. Dr J. Lyons was friendly and a pleasure to meet. She was able to set a plan up for my teeth to keep them healthy and beautiful. Thank you Smile Savvy Dentistry for an awesome first impression.

Started going to Smile Savvy a couple years ago and have seen a significant improvement with the healthiness of my teeth and gums. I have a lot of anxiety going to the dentist, but everyone in this office has been very friendly and understanding. They also go over techniques for better hygiene. Best part is that you watch Netflix and sit in a massage chair while getting your teeth cleaned – I’ve started comparing the experience to getting my nails done and never would have thought or said that with previous dentists. Highly recommend!

Both dentist are great as well as the staff! They are diligent about explaining everything to you about what needs to be done by providing you with a treatment plan and the cost involved as well as payment options! They don’t just say this is what you need, do it and pay! I’ve had dentist tell me I need thousands of dollars of work done! When I arrived at Smile Savvy after a friend referred me, I was quickly advised, that the previous dentist had lied and I didn’t need anything AT ALL EXCEPT my normal cleaning!!! Everything since then has been what I WANTED to improve my smile for my own satisfaction! And I’m well beyond satisfied!!! You can’t go wrong with Smile Savvy!
