Gentle, thorough and efficient dentistry. Dr. Welland is the very best! Not once did I feel even the least amount of discomfort during all the restorative work he did in my mouth. I am very pleased with the results of his work.  His dental assistant and hygienist also have a gentle touch and do excellent work. Faith and Debbie are a dream to work with to get an appointment with timely follow-up reminders.  The whole office is “top drawer.”  I highly recommend!  Thank you West Chester Smile Center!

Dr. Welland has been caring for my family’s teeth for years, and we could not be happier! I have long been anxious about my less-than-perfect dentition, but his excellent chair-side manner, and friendly, attentive staff have always made me feel at ease. My children are always excited, never fearful, about going to his office for check-ups, and whenever we have had a dental emergency, we have been seen promptly, and have had the problem, and the choices we might have regarding treatment of that problem explained to us fully without pressure. I highly recommend Dr. Welland.

I broke off part of a tooth while traveling. The friendly receptionist worked hard to fit me in for an emergency appointment. They were able to see me very quickly. The dental assistant was very patient with my dental anxiety and helped calm me by chatting The dentist was kind, observant, and noticed the novacain had not fully numbed me as soon as I did. He was gentle and very personable. I am so grateful for this office and everyone involved. Oh, and the price was very reasonable! 10 out 10 and an A+ from this former teacher!!

My family has been trusting our teeth to Dr. Welland and the rest of the incredible staff at West Chester Smile Center for more than 30 years.  The staff is super friendly and very caring.  We bring our five year old daughter here and she does great (and has since she was three)!  If you need a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Welland and his team!  Thanks!

This is the best dentistry I have ever been to by far. They are simply just great professional neat place . It is refreshing to walk into a place like Dr. Welland office. They are truly some of the nicest people I’ve ever met, always happy smiley and genuine. My son loves going to the dentist and they do not only a thorough job but go far and beyond to ensure each person is comfortable. I’m glad I had the chance to get into such an awesome clinic.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Welland for close to twenty years and I have thoroughly enjoyed his expertise and kind nature.  His hygienists are all top notch and seem ever willing to make my experience there comfortable and engaging.  His office staff is equally efficient and interested in me and not just my teeth!  A hidden gem in the dental world.

I absolutely love Dr. Welland, Faith, and the rest of their crew. He does excellent work. Everyone I’ve referred to him also say he’s the best and will never go anywhere else again! He has saved me multiple times with my teeth being In pain even stopping their Christmas shopping to come in and make sure i could eat and enjoy my holiday. Their whole crew are very friendly, kind, and compassionate angels to me. I’ve had to go elsewhere bc of my insurance and Dr. Welland saved me again by having to redo the other dentist work to get rid of a very painful infection the other guys gave me. But Dr. Welland”s work is worth paying the extra money that my insurance didn’t cover.

Just started going to Dr. Welland and have a whole slew of problems and he is the first dentist that I didn’t feel judged by! He took his time with me to find a good plan of action and the ladies at the front desk were super nice and explained pricing and everything to me! Also didn’t complain about all of my questions lol. Looking forward to my next appointment!

Dr. Welland and his staff are absolutely SUPERB! They all make you feel SO incredibly welcome and comfortable because they’re all such kind people with soothing and warm personalities. Their COVID precautions are off the wall with cleanliness (they clean everything in multiple of ways between each patient) and you can always see them smiling even though wearing masks. They’re very accommodating & just in general.. are such a great practice . I’d never even flinch to recommend them to anyone. They are wonderful and I always come and go smiling.. with a nice clean smile each time! Thank you Dr. Welland and staff for always being amazing 🙂

My experience here has been a breath of fresh air! On top of the exceptional service of this small office, Dr. Welland, hygienist, & office staff have been very friendly and honest. Dr. Welland clearly and completely examined and discussed my options for treatment. I highly recommend new clients to check out this practice.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. James Welland for almost 20 years. His dental expertise is exceptional, and his bedside manner is always kind and very professional. He uses state-of-the-art techniques, including making sure you are comfortable whenever there is dental work you need to have done. His office staff (wife and sister-in-law) are the nicest, most friendly people you will ever want to meet. They work hard to accommodate your scheduling needs. The hygienists are always friendly and professional. The group makes you feel like family. Our family highly recommends Dr. Welland and the West Chester Dental Smile Center.

My family has trusted Dr. Welland and his team for three generations and 30 years. We have experienced cosmetic procedures, cleanings, repairs and always been happy with the work. If you are new to West Chester, Mason or surrounding communities and need dental care, I encourage you to give West Chester Dental Smile Center a call. They are fantastic!

Dr. Welland’s office is amazing. Very clean and professional yet this familiar homey feeling. Everyone actually gets to know you so that the experience doesn’t feel impersonal. The nurses are very knowledgeable and throughout with their work. Dr. Welland himself is nothing short of amazing and skilled! Love them!

I put a lot of dental work aside for years due to a dentist that was absolutely brutal with procedures and had terrible officer management prior to switching to West Chester Smile Center. Ever since I switched over to Dr. Welland I have caught up on numerous things that needed done, including a root canal that was a breeze through them with a easy recovery. Out of the handful of Dentist I have had over the years I am finally WAY more comfortable getting things done given the horrible prior dentists and had fillings fall out immediately after procedures leaving me in crazy pain for weeks until they were available at the office. Most recently I had an issue with my gums by a previous repaired tooth and the staff was AMAZING with me even though it was at closing and they could have easily just walked out the door. I emailed some photos and within 10 minutes I had a call back aong with an appointment that fit my schedule their first day back. They are an amazing team that actually care about their work above all, lol if I could give them bonus stars I would…. they are that good!

We have been going to Dr. Welland for at least 20 years. The staff is very caring and welcoming!  Dr. Welland excells at repairing and preserving my teeth as needed and not ending up with costly procedures. He is always up to date with newer technologies and fitted me successfully with a TAP oral appliance for sleep apnea.

The best dentist around! He and his wife are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I would recommend them to everyone. The only reason I had to start with another dentist is because my insurance is one they aren’t able to take now, and I was devastated! He’s the only dentist I have ever really felt comfortable with. A great man, a great team, commitment to excellence, professional, kind, works with patients any way he can… I’ve got absolutely nothing bad to say about the dr and his wife. I only wish I was still able to go there! They make one heck of a team.

Dr Welland did a great job on re-cementing my Maryland bridge back in. I had another dentist do it first. It never felt right and fell out in 3 weeks. When Dr Welland put it in, he spent a lot more time prepping it and cementing it in. he really knows his stuff. It feels great. I feel confident it will be in there for a long time. Also I liked that he really seemed to care.

Dr. Welland and his team are top notch. Too many businesses these days are all about jamming as many people through as quick as possible. Dr wellen and his team spend time with all their patients and don’t overbook. They are very timely, always friendly, and do a great job! They invest in good equipment and good people.

Dr. Welland and the entire staff are just wonderful and are truly caring. I have been going to his office since 1982, they have provided every service needed for dental health. Many of my family members are also patients. Dr. Welland and his staff remove any fear one may have about dentists. Visits end on a positive note.

Best Dentist and staff! Dr. Welland has done the best job fixing my son’s teeth after they were broken. He rebroke his tooth and the army dentist complimented his work and told my son if he couldn’t do the same job. He came home on leave and made appointment with Dr. Welland. Everyone on his staff is friendly and caring! Would refer him to anyone!

My visit at Dr. Welland’s office was flawless as usual. The entire staff is professional and very friendly. Their office has more than complied with all of the new covid requirements. Since I am no longer covered by group insurance, I am more than willing to pay the cash price for a visit to Dr. Welland’s office rather than go to another dentist that may be covered by Medicare.

I love this dentist. They always call to check on my children after having a procedure. Dr Welland himself even called in the evening to check on my daughter! Can’t find that now a days! There staff is so genuine and I feel the compassion they have for their patients each time we are in their office. They really do care! ❤️

I’m so impressed with Dr. Welland and his staff. I went looking for a new dentist in the Mason/West Chester area because I was not pleased with my previous dentist staff and his technique. I was referred to Dr. Welland by a co-worker and I’m so happy about the recommendation. Dr. Welland is truly the most skilled dentist I have ever experienced in my 50+ years. He explains the process as you go along and is focused on YOU as a person, not just you as another patient. His office staff is friendly and engaging. They make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Welland. Lee H Mason, OH

I had an emergency repair (the filling in my front tooth came out) that was needed on a Friday afternoon when Dr. Welland’s office wasn’t even technically opened. I called and they got me in within an hour and Dr. Welland did an exceptional job! He has to be the most kind and talented dentist I’ve ever been to and from now on he will be my go-to dentist. I highly recommend him.

When we moved back to the West Chester area about 10 years ago we went through the process of finding new doctors and a dentist. After checking some references and doing on-line searching I was drawn to the sincerity and professionalism of Dr. Welland’s web site and decided to give him a try and never regretted that decision. The whole staff treats you like family, friendly follow-ups before and after appointments. Considerate of any changes in schedules that become necessary and more importantly a practice that keeps current with changes in dental processes and has a good network of specialists when required. Although I can’t say I look forward to going to the dentist but I do look forward to seeing my friends at West Chester Smile Center.
