Dr. Messer is outstanding. I have had fear of dentist for many years but he set those fears at ease, especially as I had to go in for a broken tooth and end up getting a crown. Staff is very friendly and professional and explain everything in great detail and make sure I was comfortable during the entire visit. This was my first visit with Dr. Messer, and I will definitely go back and refer others to him.

Today was my first dental visit with Southwind Dental Care. I discovered the dental provider when I was trying to find a dentist for my dad. They treated my dad with such patient, tender loving care. I viewed state-of-the-art technology (machinery) at the facility. I knew that I wanted to try them for myself as well. So, I booked an appointment. All I can say is that I receive over-the-top service! The dental hygienist and Doctor Messer, and staff are lovely! In my eyesight, I received VIP service – Thanks!

This is the best dental office! The staff is friendly and very reassuring. I have a phobia about dentists and they went out of their way to help me get the work done with a minimal amount of stress. I highly recommend Dr. Messer and his entire staff. We wouldn’t go anywhere else. I referred my elderly mother to the office.

I was visiting from out of state and had a terrible tooth ache. I called them and the next morning they helped me with my problem. Very affordable (even without insurance) and the staff is very friendly. Overall I highly recommend them.

I have been apprehensive about going to a dentist for quite some time. Let’s be honest, I kept putting it off until I didn’t have a choice out of fear and pride (I had neglected my teeth, I was afraid of judgment). From the time I entered until I left-the entire team was very welcoming and professional. I am glad I chose them and got to establish my care with them as a new patient. If you’re on the fence…or doubting it…do yourself a favor and make the call. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

I had a dental emergency…again. I couldn’t find a dentist to work with me and my schedule with work. I met with Dr. Messer and he had them out the next business day without the need of an oral surgeon and additional consultations. Not only that, but I was very comfortable throughout and uncomfortable process. Him and his staff are courteous and professional. Now I have found a dentist for my three kids and my wife. He even did a cleaning on two of my kids, at the same time, that fit in my erratic and unpredictable schedule. I couldn’t ask for more out of a dentist. You guys are awesome. I appreciate all your help. Looking forward to a long relationship with this office.

I had an amazing experience at Southwind Dental. I’ve been coming here since 2004 when my family relocated from Chicago. I was 5 At the time, I’m 22 now and still enjoy the dentist even during 2 years of braces. They are always efficient, personable, and answer any questions you may have about your smile or insurance. However, they will stay on you about your teeth, but only because they want the best.. If I moved I would still probably come back! Big thanks to Kelly L. for the jokes during my filling today!

Dr. Messer along with his staff exude compassion and concern. I personally can say, I am always provided exceptional service. Whitney, who I consider my personal hygienist, is dedicated and devoted to ensuring I am comfortable and leave satisfied. The entire staff is professional coupled with personable. It is apparent each patient is valued

I have been to several dentists in the Memphis Area and I have finally found THE ONE!! Dr. Messer is the best dentist I have ever been to, I have complete confidence in any procedure that he performs and I can’t imagine ever going to any other dentist. This is for sure a 5 star dental office!!!!

I have been going to Southwind Dental for years now and have recommended them to family and friends. I recently went for a cleaning and as usual China, my hygienist, did an awesome job of cleaning and caring for my teeth. Dr. Messer always reminds me I’m his best invisalign client. His staff is very friendly, you never have to wait long periods of time for them to call you back and you will get the absolute best service. Check them out for yourself.

From the moment I walked in, I felt very welcome. The 2 ladies at the front desk were warm and friendly. The office was clean and nicely decorated. Whitney cleaned my teeth. She was very gentle, sweet, and professional. I have always dreaded going to the dentist, but at Southwind I felt comfortable and at ease. Dr. Messer is very knowledgeable and kind. I give my entire experience an A+

I love coming to Southwind Dental!!!! I really like that when I have a procedure done Dr. Messer will lay out a ” game plan” or a explanation of how he plans to work on my teeth. Kelly L is the absolute best she gets me x-rayed and prepped and she knows what she’s doing (in a short period of time)and I appreciate it .

I don’t know what heaven is like, but if it’s anything like a visit to Southwind Dental than we are all in for a treat. Each and every person is professional at what they do, from the office to Dr. Messer . They all truly care that you are in good health. Whitney probably knows me better than most because I spend much of my time in her lounge. She is a special super star . If you need dental care, Southwind Dental should be you next and only stop. Experience worry free results from people who deliver Five star quality with extraordinary kindness. Thank you All Gary Iloff

This is one of the best dentists I’ve been to. The staff is super nice, helpful and patient. I came here to have my Invisalign installed a few weeks ago. Every visit has been informative, timely and pleasant. Of course, with something similar to braces, I had a 1,000 questions. Dr. Messer and his staff had no problems answering anything from the installation to payment process. I’m glad I decided to go with them for Invisalign. It has been a great experience so far.

The staff and Dr Messer are always looking out for their patients best interest. Sure he is a business but he would never recommend any procedures for the sake of making a buck. I have been going there for over 10 years and drive over an hour at times to get there. Its worth the drive. If you need regular or cosmetic dentistry please check out Southwind, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Messer and his entire staff is the best!!! I became a patient of his because I needed him to fix, or correct, the work that another dentist did. This was a few years ago and I have been a very happy patient ever since!!! I was so pleased that my son and my mom are both very happy patients of Dr. Messer as well!! I forgot to give my shout out to Kelly L. as well!! She’s the best also!!!

I’ve been going to the dentist at least once a year since I was 6 years old but I’ve never learned more about my teeth hygiene until I came to Southwind Dental. They were very informative and courteous. They explained everything in details and was straight forward about everything pertaining to my teeth and corrections. I’ve never been more informative.

I recently moved to Memphis and chose this dentist because it is close to where I live. I’ve gone to many dentists over the years and have never been to one as thorough and gentle as Southwind. My technician, Kendall, was the kindest, gentlest teeth cleaner I’ve ever had. She was extremely thorough as well. The dentist gave me advice that no other has before about my bite/jaw. Highly recommended

Southwind Dental is the best dentistry experience I’ve had a long time (and I’ve had a lot of work done). I bought their Groupon — $59 for a cleaning, exam, and 2 x-rays — and then had a veneer replaced and a night guard made to keep me from clenching my jaw. When I had the cleaning, I asked their staff if it was worth signing up for the dental coverage I was being offered through work, and they kindly looked through the information and said that it would definitely be worth getting. And they were so right! I was originally quoted about $1500 for the veneer replacement and the night guard. After insurance, I only paid $600, and the staff was very accomodating about paying as I went (no pay now, get reimbursed from insurance later). The work itself was fantastic. I almost cried when I saw the new veneer, it was that perfect. My smile looks aboslutely amazing now. I picked up my night guard yesterday and was assured that if I had any issues, I should just give them a call for an adjustment. Throughout this process, Dr. Messer and his staff have been friendly, helpful, and accomodating. I would definitely recommend Southwind to anyone!

I’ve always had a great experience with Dr. Messer and his excellent team. They are always considerate and actually remember you. Dr. Messer and his team always know the best plan of treatment. Yesterday’s experience was amazing, Dr. Messer was on a roll. He completed dental work that at any other office would have taken5-6 visits. I moved to the other side of city 2 yrs. ago but would not even consider a new dental clinic that is closer, Southwind Dental Carenis the best. Thank you.

This is by far the best dentist I have been to. The service was terrific, and the environment was so family-oriented!! They explained every procedure and allowed me to ask as many questions while showing great patience. I recommend Southwind Dental Care to anyone. Update: My dad also was seen here. He says Abbie is the best hygienist he has ever been to. She took her time and did a fantastic job cleaning his teeth. Her personality and character were warm and kind, and her work ethic was excellent!! From both my father and I, thank you!

This Dental office is literally the best dentist office EVER! Today, was my 1st visit to the office as a new patient & everyone was so friendly & had such great attitudes. They really make you feel welcomed. China was extremely nice and so friendly, while getting services she communicated with me while getting my teeth cleaned & helped me understand everything that was going on with my teeth. Dr. Messer was no different when he came in the room. I’m so excited to have them caring for my smile now!!! You won’t be disappointed!

Great place. Great staff!! Yesterday I was having a dental emergency. I had a wisdom tooth that was given me extreme pain. I had called all around trying to get it extracted and I kept getting the runaround. Nobody seemed too care. The problem has become bad enough that I knew I wasn’t going to wait another day. I recently moved on Hacks Cross, so I searched for local dentist

I have always been a person who did not like going to the dentist because of bad experiences, but the people that work at South Wind Dentistry made me have a whole new out look about going to the dentist office. They were professional and oh so friendly. I had my teeth cleaned and Ms. China was wonderful. My dentist Mr. Messer was very friendly and very knowledgeable. They now have a patient that will not go anywhere else.

The staff is very courteous, polite, and professional at all times. They welcome you and and let you know someone will be with shortly. I’ve been attending her since my move to M-Town over 15yrs ago. Dr. Messer is the best and keeps me with a beautiful smile.

I have been coming to this dentist since I was 10 and would never think of going anywhere else. They have wonderful assistants that always make sure you are comfortable and aware of all procedures. All of the staff are truly rockstars Kendal, Dr. Messer, Kelly and Ariana to name a few. Oh and you can’t forget the infamous Morty who is always there to greet you with a happy face! I love this place and couldn’t ask for any improvements. Keep up the amazing work you all do! Highly recommended 10 out of 10!!!

My daughter referred me here. I’m so glad. The staff is friendly, kind and professional. I have
received excellent service from Dr. Messer and his staff. They are very informative and courteous. His staff is patient and go the extra mile to make sure I understand and receive everything I need. I would recommend this Dentist and staff to anyone. Out of 5 stars with 5 being the highest I give a 5+. Thank you for your awesome service.

Had a cleaning today at Southwind Dental and the staff is always pleasant with smiles every time I enter the building. Dr. Messer is so professional and knowledgeable with my vision of how I want my smile to look. He provides many options for me to choose from. Just the best, safe and comfortable place to be when you want to make your smile awesome.

Southwind Dental Care is the place to go! Dr. Messer and his staff are wonderful, polite, and knowledgeable. Every time I have gone in everyone is always very nice and professional at the same time! Along with having a great staff, everyone always does a great job and I do not have any complaints! Wonderful business!

My appointment was a great experience today. I called when I arrived and they called me when they were ready for me. All CDC guidelines were observed. Kyndal was my hygienist today. She took very good care of me. Dr. Messer checked me out to make sure everything was okay. I have always been treated great on my visits. They know how to take care of you even if you are a little anxious. I always recommend Dr. Messer when a friend or family member is looking for a dentist. The staff is very professional. I have been a patient for years. The best that I have encountered.

Southwind Dental Care will forever be my dental home! I have been a patient of Dr. Messer for a few years now, but one thing never changes…the high quality of professional treatment I receive every single time I’m there! He and his staff not only complete a thorough examination, but provide detailed feedback about my dental health – I feel like I’ve had a crash course in dentistry! Southwind Dental Care treats you like family – not just a patient number. I have been able to successfully convert my entire family (and even friends) to their office – and they, too, would confirm my testimony. Thank you Dr. Messer and your team!

I am so glad I made the move to Southwind Dental Care. Dr Messer and his team are very professional and kind. Abbie was my hygienist today and very sweet! Everyone is always smiling and willing to help! The bonus…the most adorable office puppy!!!! He is happy to greet everyone! I would highly recommend them!

I have been a patient of Dr. Messer for over 10 years and my experience with Southwind Dental Clinic has been far greater than any dental care I have received here in Memphis Tennessee. All of the staff are very professional and kind. I don’t want to start mentioning names, but my hygienist and those who have taken care of me, have made my experience worthwhile! Thank you Dr. Messer and staff!
