I’ve been going to Smiley Dental Group for 26 years believe it or not and they just keep getting better and better! I’ve seen the same faces around for many years and they really couldn’t be any nicer. I actually look forward to catching up with the staff and you will NEVER wait here – not in the waiting room and not in the chair. My whole family has been going here since we moved to Dublin and none of us would ever think about going anywhere else.

I love Smiley Dental Group! I came to them as someone who really didn’t like the dentist and hadn’t been to one in years! Everyone…even the ladies at the front desk were so welcoming and instantly put me at ease. Dr. Smiley was wonderful and handled my anxiety about the dentist with genuine care!! I would recommend this dental group to anyone!!

Smiley Dental is first rate all around! The dentistry is top notch, the dentist’s are caring, the staff is friendly, and the entire office is warm and welcoming. They have taken care of my family over the last 15 years providing teeth cleanings, fillings, wisdom teeth extraction, emergency extraction, root canal, chip repair. Regardless of the service it’s always a positive experience! They’re also very accommodating. I chipped my tooth at lunch and they had me in as a standby at 1pm and back at work by 1:30!

Wow, where do I begin.  You’d be hard pressed to find a better dental office.  One of the most important things to me is that the staff from the dentist to the dental hygienist to the office staff have more than just a surface knowledge of what they’re doing.  The dentist will never do unnecessary dental work just to make money or just to please you when the services are not medically necessary.  And whatever they do it’ll be done right the first time without the pain that you typically experience from a lot of other dentist.  The dental hygienist are very skilled and the best hygienist that I’ve ever seen.  I’m 61 years old so I’ve been to quite a few dentist for preventative care and dental services.  When you get your teeth cleaned and you have areas that require more effort to get cleaned, they’ll take the additional time to get them clean until the plague is removed without making you feel like your about to jump out of your skin because someone is using a jack-hammer instead of a dental instrument.  Gentle but thorough.  There’s never a long wait and the clerical staff are knowledgeable and always willing to answer whatever you ask them, patient and kind.  If you think that I’m blowing smoke try it for yourself and you be the judge.  If you do you’ll never go anywhere else.

Everyone was very professional and so friendly. Sam Smiley’s Group has taken good care of our whole family’s dental needs for maybe thirty years. We all floss every night! I feel very relaxed during my teeth cleaning appointments and I actually look forward to them. We will miss Sam Smiley when he retires at the end of the year, however, Jeff Hollowicky will continue to provide excellent leadership for the Smiley Dental Group.

Over the years, I’ve had many different dental procedures by ten different dentists. None match the personable,knowledgeable service of Dr. Smiley and his staff. They bring their A-games every day and will make your visit as comfortable as possible with their efficiency and pleasant personalities. Wait times are minimal, reflecting a well-run practice and appreciation of your time. Thank you!

I have been a patient at Smiley Dental for over 10 years. Very professional staff and excellent hygienists who take their time. My dentist takes care during exams and makes sure all my questions are answered. The office environment is modern and very pleasant. I highly recommend Smiley Dental. A dental trip may not always be pleasant, but a visit to Smiley Dental will leave you pleasantly surprised.

Dental health is very important, to me. When I was introduced to the “team” at Smiley Dental, I felt comfortable, immediately. The offices are impeccably clean, organized, well staffed and scheduled appointments are on time. Questions and concerns are addressed with promptness. No longer do I dread dental visits. These professionals show a desire to listen with their hearts, not just their ears. I, highly, recommend Smiley Dental.

Top dental group in Dublin Ohio. My family and I, total of 7 people have been taken care of for more than 10 years. Courtesy, professionalism, compassion and highest level of dental care. Best dental group I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. They provide comprehensive dental care and through a high quality network of referrals all dental needs are provided including root canals and implants. Simply the best!

Karen S. from Dublin, OH (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Dr Smiley for years and years and years. I think Dr. Smiley and all of his staff are great 🙂 One thing I really appreciate is that I’ve never had more than a 5 minute wait to get in to see him. They’re good. I’ve had many cleanings, cavities filled, crowns, porcelain veniers, etc. No complaints. One comment though – on the final fitting of your crown I would strongly recommend you let them know that you want to be numbed. I didn’t do that one time and it was horrible – a root must have been exposed and I was miserable. As long as you ask for the numbing, they will do it. NOTE: I used to go to a well known dentist and it was AWFUL – he always made me wait for long periods of time (1/2 – 1 hour) and I wasn’t comfortable with the quality he provided. I absolutely can recommend Dr. Smiley and his team!

My family and I’ve been patients of Dr. Smiley’s and his wonderful dental team in Dublin, Ohio since before 2000. Dr. Smiley and his staff treat us very well and have provided excellent dental care through the years. I trust Dr. Smiley’s dental crew to always provide a safe and stress free environment whether it’s for a relatively simple teeth cleaning exercise or for the more complex procedures we’ve received through the years. After going through a bout of cancer in 2000, Dr. Smiley and his staff never fail to ask about my health beyond what’s occurring with my smile. Last but not least, it’s always nice when Dr. Smiley’s staff recognize and acknowledge me by name whenever I visit their office as this doesn’t always occur with other doctor’s offices I’ve visited since living in Central Ohio. Kinda like the old TV show Cheers but without Norm and cold drafts. Regardless, everyone at Dr. Smiley’s knows your name!

What a great place to go! I’ve been going to this practice for years and just took my 3 yo daughter today for her first cleaning. The staff was oh so wonderful and really made it a pleasant experience! They really went above and beyond. Ms. Lisa did a fantastic job cleaning her teeth and making her feel comfortable and the staff up front paid extra attention to her as well. I highly recommend!!!!

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Smiley and I have always been genuinely cared for by this entire practice; from the welcoming receptionist who remembers your name , to the hygienist who takes care of every detail during your treatment, to dedicated Dr. Smiley who provides the greatest care a patient can get. This team will always go above and beyond to accommodate your needs.

Just brought my 2 daughters aged 3&4 and this office was better with my kids then the previous pediatric dentist I went to. Extremely friendly staff, hardy any wait time, and hygienists that engaged the children and explained everything to them so they weren’t scared. I have personally been here 3 times total now and would rate each visit a 5 star visit with great patient care and customer service. Great work guys!

As always, I was happy to see you during my recent visit and checkup! You are simply the best! From the first moment I entered your practice, so many years ago, to this very day, you always make me feel very comfortable. Dr. Sam Smiley and Dr. Jeff Holowicki are wonderful, caring Dentists! I never looked back after committing to the major “renovation” you performed in my mouth! For me, it was a big investment, but one that continues to provide great returns. All the procedures were painless, and the end results speak for themselves. Lisa cleans my teeth, and I have never in my life had a better Dental Hygienist. She is so gentle, yet thorough! I receive compliments on my smile often and I think of you and your excellent staff each time. May you enjoy many more years of putting smiles on people’s faces. Always smiling, Nancy

I am so grateful for Dr. Smiley, Kara, and Lonni. This group is extremely professional and they absolutely know what they’re doing. Their kindness to me and their concern for my smile & comfort went above and beyond. The quality of their work is stellar. Dr. Smiley stands behind his work and it’s clear that he wants his patients to be pleased. I’m so happy I came to Smiley Dental Group. I won’t be going anywhere e

Smiley Dental Group has been taking care of all my family for 28 yrs. U cannot find better dental care anywhere. (Poetry not intended) All the employees go out of their way to make u feel welcome and comfortable. My 9 and 3 yr old grandchildren argue over who likes Sam Smiley the best. They brag about how many animals he takes care of at the Columbus Zoo. I have had some unusual health circumstances involving my teeth. I get the top level of care and if I need a referral for specialized dentistry, they will refer me to someone very good, each and every time. The other dentists in this group are exceptional too. Believe me, this is a top notch practice!

I can’t recommend this office more! I had searched and searched for a dentist for a few days. I had a tooth that needed pulled, that was causing severe pain. When inquiring with other places they weren’t available for a same day appointment, or seemed “sketchy.” I put in an email request for an appointment at 5am and by 6:30am before their office even opened I was contacted regarding an appointment that same morning. When walking into the office, the lobby is very clean and calming. The staff immediately acknowledges you, and begins to assist you. I showed up 30 minutes early for my appointment and sat in the lobby for maybe 5 minutes before I was called back. My dental technician and the dentist were very friendly, and help ease any anxiety I had about the appointment. I was accessed, and quickly referred to an oral surgeon 10 minutes away. They reassured me what the process would be, and made sure to answer any and all questions I had. When leaving the staff was so friendly and thanked me for showing up early and completing all my paperwork. This office greatly changed the way I viewed going to the dentist. Couldn’t say enough about the experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Smiley’s and his incredible team for more than twenty years. The kindness, skill, and dedication each member of this remarkable practice exhibits is unmatched. Receptionists and administrative assistants are organized and friendly; dental hygienists and technicians are patient and diligent; dentists are talented and caring. You will arrive and leave with a smile (and a carefully examined, cleaned, and polished one at that!).

Laura W. from Dublin, OH (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Smiley Dental Group to anyone in need of a super professional and friendly dentist office.  Both Dr. Smiley and Dr. Holowicki are stellar in the art of dentistry and very personable as well.  The entire office staff has always been very friendly and efficient.  My “personal” choice for the best dental hygienist EVER is Kristy.  She is absolutely wonderful; a very competent  and skilled hygienist (a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning teeth) and keeps you smiling with all her wonderfully funny stories.  SHE makes getting your teeth cleaned something I truly look forward to. . . and that’s saying a lot.  It is evident that everyone at Smiley Dental truly cares about the health and well being of each of their patients, which to me, constitutes a great dental practice..

Jennifer W. from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)


Smiley Dental does a great job! I love that I can get my teeth cleaned and my five year old daughter can too! They are great with my daughter and take time to explain the process and wait for her to ask questions and get comfortable before moving forward. I have been a patient for more then 10 years and they have always done a wonderful job! Everyone is very professional and you can tell they enjoy working there.

Judy Alltop (Source: Facebook)


I found Dr Smiley by calling an oral surgeons office and of course they were not allowed to refer me to a dentist. So I ask them to poll the room, ask everyone who their dentist was, and out of 6 people at the front desk 5 said “Dr Smiley! “. That was 20 years ago and I have been with them ever since. It’s like going to visit family because that is their mantra… treat each patient like family. I would, and do, recommend the Smiley Dental Group.

First appointment with Smiley dental was nervous because I moved to the area about 3 years ago but have been going to the same dentist I always have since I was a kid which I would drive an hour and a half to go to. Decided it was time to switch it up and give someone new a chance and I don’t regret it at all Lisa my hygienist was AMAZING made me feel as if I’ve been coming here for my whole life. Dr smiley I met briefly but gave a very good first impression. Definitely would recommend if you are on the fence or looking for a new dentist!!! My girlfriend will be setting up an appointment ASAP and is starting to come here as well now!

Shelly T. from Marysville, OH (Source: Yelp)


If you are looking for a new dentist, look no further. Smiley Dental Group is one of a kind. My previous dentist was going to retire and I was nervous about changing. So glad I made the leap. The whole team is first class. It is apparent you truly enjoy your jobs, value each other and treat patients as the first priority. Kudos to Dr. Smiley and Dr. Holowicki. They are such a great team.

Devin D. from Columbus, OH (Source: Yelp)


Like many of you I am terrified of the dentist. Like petrified! They immediately offered me nitrous before working on my teeth and I am forever grateful. All of the workers there are on point and so kind. I get most nervous about shots before dental work and I did not feel a thing. They also really listen to your concerns; I have a gap in my front teeth I would like to be smaller and they scheduled the appointment with an Endontist during my appointment for the next day. If you are afraid of dentist this is the place for you!

Vanessa M. from Powell, OH (Source: Yelp)


Trust me with this recommendation–I HATE going to the dentist. So it means a lot when I say that going here is about as pleasant as a trip to the dentist can ever be. The office is nice, the magazine selection is good, the staff are super friendly. The waits are never long. The hygienists are very kind (Lisa is hands-down the best hygienist I’ve ever had.) I see Dr. Holowicki who, again, is great- very low-key and puts you at ease. I’ve never met Dr Smiley but he waves at me like we know each other. Whoever does the hiring there knows what they are doing. They also have a lab on site. I’ve been to dentists in the past who were scolding, maybe to inspire me to come more often but instead they made me not want to go to the dentist. No one is like that here. They told me I had pretty teeth. I don’t think that’s really true, but I’ll take it! Seriously, you can’t go wrong here

Laura H. from Powell, OH (Source: Yelp)


I bit into an old Starburst and a veneer came off. My dentist was out of town and I had a big hole in my smile and needed to get it fixed right away. My dentist’s office referred me to the Smiley Dental Group. They were able to get me in right away even though I wasn’t even a patient. The receptionists were friendly and the office was very nice. Dr. Smiley and his staff were able to fix my veneer with no problems. I didn’t hardly even feel when he was giving me the shot to numb my mouth. He took his time and made sure it was just right before I left. He even followed up with a phone call the next day to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend!

I was new to Columbus and needed same day dental work. This was the only place near me that would take me ( I called about 5-7 other places.). I had a very nice dentist who told me what he was doing every step of the way and was concerned for my comfort and asked many times if I was comfortable. The work was efficient and professional and I’ve had no further problems. This seemed to be a popular dental office. It was also very clean.

I have been going to Dr Smiley on and off (whenever I’ve lived in Columbus, OH) for 20 years, and I trust absolutely no one over his expertise. Top-notch, expert staff… you absolutely will not find anyone better in this region. Cosmetic and paradontal experts associated with his practice in the same building. I have taken my son to this practice for his first few cleanings – Dr. Smiley & staff are EXCELLENT with children as well. My 5 year old actually loves going to the dentist. I cannot say enough about this practice

I have been a patient at Smiley Dental for over 10 years. Very professional staff and excellent hygienists who take their time. My dentist takes care during exams and makes sure all my questions are answered. The office environment is modern and very pleasant. I highly recommend Smiley Dental. A dental trip may not always be pleasant, but a visit to Smiley Dental will leave you pleasantly surprised.

I have been a patient of Dr. Smiley and his group for many years. I was too old to have dental anxiety (actually cold fear) but in my efforts to be a grown-up I tried out the Smiley group. I’m so glad I did. Dr. Smiley listened and respected my fears. He has done everything to help me forget my childhood horrors at the dentist. His work – bridge, crowns, fillings, and cleanings – have all been done well and in an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness throughout his office.
I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Larry Cole (Source: Facebook)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Smiley for nearly 30 years. I never remember waiting more than 5-10 minutes. In fact, they are usually waiting and ready to take me in as soon as I arrive. The staff is ALWAYS friendly, courteous and professional. Everyone always calls me by name and makes me feel right at home. As far as comfort? I can honestly say that I don’t remember feeling any significant pain during any visit. I’ve had more pain getting a haircut! Bottom line… I don’t trust ANYONE ELSE for my dental care.

Carrie Sarkis (Source: Google)


The entire staff at Smiley Dental is wonderful! My children and I always feel comfortable in their care. Over the years we’ve been through dental surgeries and braces, as well as cleanings and I couldn’t be more pleased with our results. Thank you for all you have done for my family and for the great recommendations for oral surgeons and orthodontists.

Tim Hofmann (Source: Facebook)


I’m in this office 4-6 times a year for cleanings and check-ups for myself and my family. Here are the things I noticed right away: Great attitudes. Front desk admin folks and the hygienists all seem to be happy to be at work. Everyone is friendly, everyone has a sense of humor. Kid Friendly. Even my 3-year-old terrorist’s nonsense was borne with grace. My 6-year-old loves going to the dentist. Affable Dentists. I’ve spent time with Dr. Smiley and Dr. Holowicki and they are both great to be around- it’s obvious that great chairside manner is an important part of what happens here. Not Drill Happy- some dentists will find extensive work to do in your mouth every time you show up whether you need it or not. Not here. All this adds up to a great place to get your chompers looked after. It’s an exceedingly well-run business. Thanks for reading!
