I really appreciate the team at Sunshine Creative smiles. First dentist office that I have not hated in decades. Had a rough first experience, where everything ran late. Since then everything has been quick, courteous, and smooth. I am a big fan of not being upsold on everything, nor feeling like I am forced down a path. I have recommended co workers, my wife and my mother happily.

I love Dr Anala and her staff. They are all so personable and kind to the patients. Dr Anala is very professional but she also has a true interest in her patient’s wellbeing. My husband and I are both happy with our selecting her as our dentist. We also love Holly her receptionist. She always finds a way to get us in even at the last minute and we love that about this office.

I was in need of a root canal and I didn’t feel comfortable with the dentist that I was with.  So I switched to Sunshine Creative Smiles and I’m so glad that I did.  The front desk lady, Janis, was professional and very polite.  And the dentist explain every step of the procedure.  She made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole thing.  It’s been two years now, and I’ve been going back to them for cleanings.  Which I’m very pleased with.  I liked them so much that I refered my mother.  Thank you Dr. Punchumarti and Staff  🙂

I have been a patient at Sunshine Creative Smile for over 4 years and have received wonderful service. The staff is friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this dentist to friends and family. Since I have been with this dentist, the health of my teeth and gums have improved! Well, I not going anywhere because once you have found someone good there is no reason to go to someone else. Also, retired veterans/military ( GEHA) is welcomed. P.S. Dr. Panchumarti and staff….thank you and I appreciate the work that each and every one of you do! Peace!

I have always been a wimp when it comes to the Dentist, therefore I always went on a regular schedule. A change in my insurance meant a change in my Dentist.  This dental office takes my lousy,but cheap dental plan and is close to my home, so I made my appointment. I can honestly say that Dr Anala is very good! She is gentle and takes time with her patients. She has helped to put me at ease while in the dental chair, and  the shots she gives are as painless as a shot in the mouth can be. I can actually have dental work done now without gripping the arms of the chair. I really like her staff Maria, who cleans your teeth, and Diana who assists Dr. Anala.  If your looking for a new Dentist I recommend this office

I really like Dr. Anala. Always a professional and friendly experience. My last appt I came a day early and was still services with very lil wait time. My was displeased with her dentist and I sent her here. Found out her old dentist was overlooking her issues which were cancer. Dr. Anala insisted she get it checked while her other dentist prescribe cream each time! That alone earn her 5 stars!!

Dr. Panchumarti and her staff are #1 Competent! #2 Caring! #3 Confident! I have nothing but positive experiences with her and her staff. Having had multiple dentists throughout my life, she is by far the most gentle and it certainly helps that she has small hands… of which are skilled, experienced, and again… gentle. Her staff follow her example and have always been friendly, personable, and competent in dental care and handling my insurance company. Dr. P. has also made herself available outside of office hours to alleviate an unexpected tooth fracture. She’s great!

Office : located with a parking lot that is easily navigated. The furniture in the waiting room is in good condition and comfortable for most people . Staff : All the staff are pleasant and professional. Dr. Alana is a gentle caring skilled practitioner. She can explain her treatment plans in understandable language. She does not appear to be rushed while engaging with her patients. The staff is able and willing to assist a person with disabilities. Billing: The office understands and is willing to help people with limited financial resources. A true gem set in pleasant circumstances.

Seven years ago, I had the great opportunity of meeting Dr. Anala Panchumarti. She came highly recommended by one of her colleagues. Every time I step into her office, I’m quickly reminded of her stellar skills and compassion. She always goes above and beyond for all of her patients. Her office staff is also efficient, caring and bilingual.

Updated: Dr Anala called me and apologized. I subsequently came in for a cleaning/evaluation, then a new filling and a filling replacement and today I am back for a crown for an old root canal. Since the first unfortunate visit i have scheduled my visits early and have had no issues. Everyone at the office has been very helpful and pleasant. I have 3,4 and a 5 mm gaps and heard nothing about the $350/quad deep cleaning t hat insurance doeant cover. Nothing. Very refreshing. At no point have i felt like i was being pressured to do service. They evaluated, gave me suggestions and we worked out a treatment plan with costs and timing. As much as i hate the dentist in general, this has been a pleasant experience repeatedly now. Original: Result, I left after 45 min.

I have nothing but great things to say about this entire office. But the greatest is the care that the dentist gives you and always asking if your okay. I so excited to be recieving my new dentures I can hardly wait. I’ve NEVER liked going to the dentist but Dr.Anala has changed my opinion. She is an excellent dentist.

Emily Lockwood (Source: Google)


My daughter (10 yrs old) and I have been going here for our dental care for 4 years now. She and her staff are very competent and knowledgeable. I never have billing issues with my insurance, etc. She does a great job with fillings! She is very thorough but quick. She and her staff all have wonderful personalities and are very kind and sensitive. They do everything they can to make you comfortable during treatment.

Fantastic Dentist!! I have seen several dentists over the past 3 years in order to find a competent, caring, and trustworthy dentist. Dr. Alana meets all three of these and more!! She is a true professional and is backed by a fantastic support staff. Her review ratings are exceptionally high for a reason. Have no doubts about Dr Alana in searching for your next dentist. On top of that she has a new office, new equipment and the most brilliant idea of having TVs not only on the wall but on the ceilings!!

Dr. Panchumarti is not only knowledgeable but extremely gentle. She displays compassion for her profession through honest communication and professional judgment for her clients wants. I have been established with her practice for over 2 years and never have had a bad experience with Dr.Panchumarti or her dedicated staff.

First of all my Heartful Thanks to Anala Panchumarthi, coming from a background where I was super scared of any minor dentistry work, I find my self lucky to be at this place “Sunshine creative smiles”, where the staff is so welcoming and friendly always with a huge smile and the doctor herself is so willing to listen, humble and showing concern to patient’s problems , How much ever minor they were.Getting the appointment was never a problem and procedures were so painless, even a complicated extraction was done with lots of confidence and the follow up sessions were also very effective and easy to schedule.. You changed my attitude towards dentistry Anala Panchumarthi and I cannot thank enough for clearing all my fears and doubts towards procedures, getting the tooth fixed now seems to be a normal process and removed my complete fear of 2.5 years, where I was dreaded to get fixed a failed crown. Thanks for all the precautionary and future expectations you have given me. They will always be remembered, and I hope I can make this my regular dentistry for a life time.. Huge Thanks for transforming me from a fearful patient to a Healthy individual 🙂

Great staff, very friendly, and helpful – and I mean everyone from the receptionist to the dentist herself. I loved that Dr. Panchumarti explained everything as she was doing it and why she was doing it. Would definitely recommend. The only disadvantage was the long wait time. If I’d known I would have planned accordingly but the service and care provided made it worth the wait.

Katherine C (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Anala was great about walking me through what she was doing and why, making my overall experience very positive. The office is beautiful and clean, with a friendly staff. I waited for years to find a dentist in Tampa, while always driving back to Orlando to go to the dentist I had been seeing for years, but now I will definitely be making Dr. Anala my primary dentist.

Last week 10/6 was my first time going to this dentist and I’ve been to a few. I’ve had very bad luck with dentist never could find a good one or if I was to return for a follow up I always ended up with someone else. This office treated me very good. Normally in the past if I went to a dentist they would have me come back for my procedure, however this officestarted the same day!! My nerves were shot out when they did the first side of my cleaning, I came back back on Thursday for them to do the other side and guess what? I had the SAME people :). This time I was much more calm and got through the procedure with no issues. I mean I really can’t describe how much better I feel finding myself a dentist that seems like they actually CARE about the health of your teeth instead of demolishing your mouth and kicking you out Lol. The staff are all so friendly 🙂

I used to be a patient of Tim Tellios and was pleasantly surprised that this dentist had taken over his practice due to the convenient location. First I emailed the office via their website to ask a question regarding insurance acceptance and received a response first thing the next business day. The appointment availability did not involve a long wait. I was impressed with the staff regarding the insurance estimate accuracy, everyone was ‘user-friendly’, the dentist, Dr. Anala Panchumarti (DMD) was also ‘user-friendly’ and thorough. I did not feel I was being rushed. The office environment is spotless, quiet, relaxing and beautifully decorated, geared with ‘patients in mind’. Dr. Panchumarti performed the deep cleaning procedure and continually made certain I was completely comfortable throughout (which I was) and I left with a bottle of gum rinse medicine along with instructions. Soon after my gum irritation issues commenced to resolve. I returned for permanent 3 tooth bridge preparation (1 of the teeth already had a crown and the other one was prepped for temporary crown by Dr. Panchumarti). Again, Dr. Panchumarti continually checked with me to ensure I was completely comfortable and out of pain throughout the entire procedure. She caught a very small cavity that x-rays missed & took care of it right then. Her dental assistant took considerable care in helping me choose the most natural color so that the permanent product would blend well with my natural teeth. (My teeth color is not the easiest to match). I left with temporary crowns which fit well. I had no problems during the next 3 weeks with the temp crowns and returned today to receive the final product which fit beautifully and the cosmetics is such that my husband couldn’t tell which teeth are natural and which are prosthetic. I experienced top quality care and also saved considerable money in that Dr. Panchumarti cared enough to expend the time and effort to pursue resolving my gum issues (created as a side-effect of a recently resolved respiratory infection) instead of ‘just sending me packing to the periodontist’. In fact, I inquired about a gum treatment product I wondered whether or not would help and Dr. Panchumarti told me I didn’t need it based on what she was seeing of my gum improvement since the last visit. I appreciated the honesty or not taking the opportunity to sell me something I didn’t need. I happily report….1) refreshing experience….2) run, don’t walk to this dentist….3) top notch care performed in mind with saving me from unnecessary procedures or expenditures….4) patient oriented staff….5) terrific cosmetics….6) treatment plan that worked….7) wait time not long.

I am a dental hygienist and I had the wonderful opportunity to work with and get to know Dr. Anala. I highly recommend her to anyone as a person and as a professional due to her honesty, friendliness, and meticulous work. She is very adept at working with her patients’ needs as well as ensuring that they understand the treatment they will need. I guarantee that you will love her if you give her the chance.

Asia L (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Panchumarti is really nice, professional and knowledgeable. My only complaint is the long wait time before I was seen. After I was in the exam room I waited another 45 minutes before the doctor came in. I actually went out to the front desk to see if something was wrong. Hopefully this was just an anomaly and things run totally smoothly next time.

I started coming to Dr. Anala because other dentists were telling me I needed things done that were not necessary. She is honest with what needs to be done and does not try to push you to do things that are not necessary. Flor cleans my husband and my teeth, she is always gentle and makes the cleaning process easy and relaxed. Holly at the front desk is so accommodating! I highly recommend them.

Felicia Young (Source: Google)


Dr. Anala Panchumarti is a very caring, loving, highly experience and professional Dentist. After two years with Dr. Panchumarti, my mouth in now healthy again. I’ve had a dental emergency (chipped tooth) and I was seen that day. Dr. Panchumarti cosmetic skills are the best, she matched my tooth color and length. I love my Dental Care. My Hygienist Beatrice is the BEST! I never had my teeth cleaned without some sort minor discomfort, not with Beatrice. My apprehension to teeth cleaning is gone, I look forward to it. She educates you with little teeth cleaning tips each visit. Sunshine Creative Smiles is the best Dental Office in Tampa.

Coralee H. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Alana and her staff have always treated my kindly, promptly and with gentle humor. (I am dental phobic.) There is not much turn over with her staff, however there is a new person (Holly) at the front desk. She is friendly and efficient. The office is clean and well managed. Dr. Alana takes the time to explain procedures and is highly skilled. This is NOT a run of the mill grind ’em out corporate operation. Instead this is Dentist in a private practice who really cares about her patients. I am an elderly person. I have seen a lot of dentists over the years. Dr. A is one of the best.

I have always been reluctant to go to the Dentist. It makes me very nervous. However Dr. Anala has changed that for ever. She is the best there is in town. Super friendly staff and overall great service. I had 3 tooths pulled at the same time and it was truly the easiest process. I am so happy I found this location. If you’re in need of dental care, look no further. I strongly recommend this place. I assure you that you won’t regret it.

I have been notorious about not going to the dentist due to a bad experience as a child. When I absolutely had to get work done on my teeth, the VA chose Dr. Anala for me, as I had expressed interest in a female dentist. She is AMAZING! Very caring, gentle….explained what she was going to do before she did it; numbed me up good and just was the best at what she does. Her entire staff is very friendly and professional. If you have put off doing dental work, go and see this great lady…you won’t be disappointed!

Sometimes you don’t know what you are missing until you try something else. I recently switched to this office as my primary care dentist. Extremely professional environment with a friendly staff that shows some TLC while working on your smile. I always feel a bit vulnerable in a dental chair and have a mild case of anxiety with dental work, but this office makes me feel extremely confident and at ease.

For the staff and dentist, I have been seeing this dentist for a year and half and I couldn’t ask for a better one out of all my dentists I have visited entire of my life. She is very understanding of me being deaf and she literally took her time communicating with me to ensure I understand the treatments. She doesn’t want to be rushed and wrote down the treatments on a piece of paper. Her staff are also amazing, they are really trying to work with me and making sure I understand everything they want to tell me. They even set up closed captioning on their tv for me. As for the billing, I ended up having credit in my account due to insurance billing issues, they were willing to give me options with the surplus. The first option is to leave the money in their account or they can cut a check and I can cash it. I decided to cash the check. Anyways, it was nice of them to offer options with the extra money. People, you cannot ask for a better dentist and staff than Dr. Anala Panchumarti and her staff. You wouldn’t have trouble finding parking because it is right there front of the office.

It was a fearful visit, which turned into a very professional and pleasant experience. The care I received was beyond what I had expected. The results were exactly what was promised. I had to make an unscheduled appointment beyond office hours and was greeted with concern and taken care of immediately. I would recommend Dr, Anala Panchumarti and her very competent staff to anyone. Based on a 1 to 10 scale I would give Sunshine Creative Smiles a ” 10″

I’ve been going to Sunshine Creative Smiles for about four years now and they have been the best dental practice I’ve found in the Bay area. I tried out several other dentists before finding Dr. Panchumarti’s office on ZocDoc. It’s not super close for me, but I’ve stuck with them because everyone in the office is amazing. They’re so nice, always accommodating and very understanding. Dr. Panchumarti’s gone out of her way to work around our schedule, and I’ve never had any issues with services I’ve had done. The office is clean, the staff is quick and efficient and they always make us feel welcome. My husband and I both just started Invisalign with them for a much lower price than other dental practices we checked. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.

Dr. Anala did two crowns for me ! Perfection is her quality! She takes utmost pride in her work ! I am a dentist myself and I know the quality of work she delivered in my mouth! ! A highly commendable job!!

David R (Source: Zocdoc)


Gentle, professional, and very patient! Best experience I’ve had inside a dentist’s office so far. Dr. Panchumarti was super understanding and accommodating of my high anxiety. To the point I’m actually looking forward to getting more treatment done, as opposed to delaying it and putting it off for another few years like I’ve done in the past. I’ve spent literally hours researching dentists in the area and I’m so glad I’ve found Dr. Panchumarti. Best decision ever!

Donna W (Source: Google)


I was very pleased with the work of the Dental Hygienist that cleaned my teeth and with the recommendations of Dr. Panchumarti. However, the woman at the front desk was RUDE and NASTY TO SPEAK TO. As the front desk receptionist you are the first and last person that the patient see’s and this receptionists attitude was LESS THAN TO BE DESIRED! I do not know if I will even return to the office because I was so put off by the receptionist. It is a shame because Dr. Panchumarti and the dental hygienists were great!

Heather W (Source: Zocdoc)


Everyone is always friendly and answers my questions thoroughly. Very gentle and caring with every procedure. I recommend this office to everyone I know. They get me in and out in no time, But they don’t mind taking any extra time needed to address any of my questions or concerns. Always clean and professional. If you’re looking for a dentist, you should seriously consider this office. I always have an amazing experience when I’m here.
