I highly recommendWeschase Smiles if you are looking to get any dental work done. Dr. Cesar is super friendly and very trustworthy. I have been coming to his office for a couple of years now and completely trust Dr.C advice and recommendations. When I first visited I had A LOT of work to get done due to avoiding dentists for years. Dr. C worked with me on achieving good dental hygiene. The staff is always happy to help and very friendly so it makes it easy to come back every time!

I haven’t been to the dentist for a routine visit in 20 years due to high anxiety. I decided it was time to be an adult and go for a visit to see what needed to be done for my smile. The dental assistant Brian helped me feel comfortable and feel right at home and Dr. Cesar Chilmaza eased my anxiety by listening to my concerns. Thanks team for making my dental experience pleasant.

One of the best dentist experiences I’ve had! Was greeted by Christine who was very polite, professional, and friendly. All the staff was amazing and made me feel extremely welcome. The dentist was educated and and extremely nice. I did not feel pushed to buy anything that was not necessary or needed! A dentist that will actually look forward to going back to!

It is always seems hard to find good doctors, dentists, hair salons, etc. I feel like it is a pretty rare occasion that I find a place that I can honestly write a good review about. My family has already used 2 other dentists in Westchase and got referred here by a friend. Got to admit, I was really happy to get this referral. The dentist is just an amazing human being and the staff is top notch. Equipment is all top of the line – you certainly don’t feel like you are in an 80’s movie like you do in some other offices. And as for the price – it is all complex of course with insurance and everything but for me it worked out better here for me than the quote I got from the other dentist I went to for the same issues. Bottom line, would definitely recommend this place to everyone – and I say that even after the Novocain has worn off from my root canal!

I am so happy to have Westchase Smiles here in Westchase. They are the best!!! I broke a crown and they kindly got me in for an appointment that day even though some of them had to stay late to do so. It’s difficult to say who is my favorite. They are all great including the staff. I have never been to a singing dentist before. Dr. Cesar is a very good singer. Minh and Brian didn’t sing to me but they are so kind, knowledgeable and very helpful. They make me feel right at home. I would recommend them to anyone. Especially if you don’t like dentist. You’ll love Westchase Smiles Institute.

Diana M. from Drew Park, Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Such a personal care, they’re truly the BEST dental office in Tampa Bay, the moment you walk in you feel like home, always on time to take care of their patients. Always attentive and willing to ask any questions you might have during your visit… my kids LOVE to go to the dentist, Dr C is great with ALL his patients, you can feel that personal connection ((you’re not just a number)) and to me that’s so important!!

Today was my first visit. My dad & stepmom recommended this office. I am more then pleased. All the staff were very friendly. Everyone took extra safety precautions. Very clean and well kept. I would recommend this place to anyone. Great customer service , was on time , and helpful ! I will be a life time customer !!

I was in the process of looking for a new dentist when I came across Westchase Smiles and their outstanding reviews! When calling to book my first appointment I was greeted by a very warm and friendly staff member who would excitedly ask how they could brighten my smile. Although I happened to get a little lost on my way to the dentist office, the receptionist, Kalie remained on the phone with me the entire time and even went out of her way to come and get me from the parking lot. The office was very clean and tidy making the overall atmosphere calm and refreshing. Dr. Chilmaza was very nice and ensured that he explained what measures I needed to take to obtain a healthier smile. The entire staff made me feel so welcomed and I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience at Westchase Smiles! I definitely would recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist office that truly cares about their patients!

Adam T. from New Port Richey, FL (Source: Yelp)


What can I say about Westchase Smiles Institute?! The staff is kind, supportive, informative, friendly and knowledgeable! They are, BY FAR, the best dental office experience I’ve had so far and I very highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing, catered and personal experience! I have some major work that needs to be done to my teeth and I’ve never experienced the level of support that Dr. Chilmaza and his staff have shown to me so far. They aren’t overly-clinical. They are concise and I understood everything that needed to be done to fix my teeth. On top of that, the level of comfort I feel is like being around friends rather than feeling like “just another patient”, sitting in the chair, paying to have work done on my teeth. My feelings matter to them and it shows immensely. I’ve been a customer service representative in the I.T. field for 23 years and my primary concern has always been customer satisfaction, and Westchase Smiles Institute has DEFINITELY earned a 5-star review from me. I am actually looking forward to future appointments with them until my teeth are perfect.

I have been going to Dr. C for almost a year now. I chose him as my primary dentist because he was within my network for insurance, and his office is close to where I live. I can honestly say that I am glad I made that decision. Since day 1 he and his staff have been nothing short of awesome to work with. (Especially my girl Angie LOL). The staff at West Chase Smiles are easy going, straight forward and caring. I just recently had a tooth implant done by Dr. C which I was really nervous about going into the operation. Dr. C as well as Angie were very upfront with what to expect during and after the procedure, and they were spot on about everything. Even after the procedure Dr. C gave me his personal cell phone number and said if I had any questions concerns etc. to reach out at anytime. Dr. C answered every time I text him within 15 minutes. (Much Appreciated). All in all I highly recommend this dentist office as they are friendly, honest, easy to work with. Make sure to ask for Angie, she’s the best.

I am so blessed that I chose West Chase Smiles Institute for a second opinion. The staff and Doctor were so friendly, reassuring and professional. The office was clean and followed Covid_19 practices with extra care. I felt safe. I had 4 procedures done today 2 cavities filled, bonding on my front tooth, a tooth pulled, and a bone graft to get ready for an implant. I was so amazed, because I am 50 years old, do not like Dentists and everything went perfectly. I will and would recommend to friends and family.

I went to Westchase Smile to get my wisdom teeth remove as a new patient and it was a great experience. I highly recommend their services because the kindness of all staff. The Dr. gave me support during all the procedure. It was fast and less painful than I though. I am very pleased and grateful for everything. God bless you all!

Isabel E. from Weston, FL (Source: Yelp)


So strange to read bad reviews for this dentist office because my last four visits have been nothing short of AMAZING!! Dr. C and his staff are so wonderful and welcoming! Not only is he professional he is also extremely diligent with his work and always tries to accommodate me. I drive nearly 5 hours because he’s the only one I trust to take care of my smile! My kids have seen then improvement in my oral care and have also decided to make the drive to see him! You’re the best Dr. C! Thank you for all your patience!

Robert F. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. C and his staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They treated me for an infection and I was in and out quickly. All the while, Dr. C and his staff were educating me on what they were doing it, how they were doing it, and ensuring I was not in any pain. Needless to say. Westchase Smiles Institute is now my families choice for dental care. Highly recommend for your dental needs.

Dr. Cesar does a great job saving my front tooth and give me back my smile, while other 2 doctors told me that implant is the only one option for me. In addition he give me huge discount for some other procedures. Some times you need to wait a bit for him, but it totally worth it. When he start working – you feel professional approach right away. I recommend this place.

Dawn G. from Odessa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’m very nervous about going to the Dentist but after meeting Dr. C he put me at ease. He is knowledgeable, kind, and patient. He has the friendliest staff that is warm and welcoming. I’ve had a miss colored tooth for 35 years that I was too afraid to do anything about. After my initial visit with Dr. C and talking about my options I felt safe enough to go forward and have the tooth bonded and finally have a bright smile again. Dr. C was very honest and upfront about the possible outcome. Overall we were happy with the end result and now I can’t stop looking at my smile in the mirror 🙂

Chris S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was just at Dr. C’s office and I can’t say enough about him and his staff! They always take amazing care of my wife and I. We both have done Invisalign there and it’s amazing how street our teeth are and the compliments we receive daily. Highly recommend checking out his office.

Ive been going to West Chase Smiles for the past 3 years. Doc and his staff are very personable. They care about your teeth and not just getting you in and out. I love the text appointment reminders and they also let you know when you haven’t been in over 6 months. Every visit I have an amazing experience! They make sure you’re comfortable with the procedure and that you understand what they’re doing. I definitely recommend!!

Lydia D. from TWN N CNTRY, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. C is really cool and you can tell he is completely honest and he runs his practice with integrity.! Also love the hygienist mulani! Make sure to schedule your cleaning with her ! Not to mention the awesome front desk manager who always helps me with a reasonable payment plan for any work I need done . Thank you to all of Westchase Smiles!

Jessica V. from Citrus Park Community, Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Westchase Smiles for a few years now and every experience has been great! Dr. C is very thorough and does a wonderful job. He removed all four of my wisdom teeth last year. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour and had a very quick recovery. I must mention the office staff as well, very friendly and welcoming. Overall definitely recommend!

Dennis Kill (Source: Facebook)


In the first step of a dental implant. I find the office personnel engaged and friendly. They exude an attituds of liking their jobs and office. The tooth removal went very well. I took the meds and inflammatory meds after the removal and no pain in day 2. The staff are all in tune with each other and the process was flawless. P.S. – I work on process improvements in my job.

Cara R Riley (Source: Google)


Dr.C and his entire staff are amazing! I’ve been going to him since he opened his practice and they are consistently professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and use the latest tools and techniques. I’m not a huge fan of the dentist but they make my visits very comfortable and quick! Thanks Dr.C and team for being so awesome and always taking care of me and my pearly whites!

As a dentist myself I had a patient that needed same day emergency treatment and I was unable to see her. I called over to Westchase Smiles Institute to see if they could squeeze her in. It was absolute last minute on a Friday and they were beyond accommodating. My patient told me that it was a fantastic experience all around. Thank you for taking such great care of my patient and for upholding the high standards of our profession! You rock!

Dr. Nurka N. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I had a fantastic experience visiting Westchase Smiles Institute! This was my first dental visit in Florida, since relocating from New Jersey. Dr. Chilmaza was very professional, gentle, and personable. His staff was really welcoming and friendly, as well. The dental office is state-of-the art. It’s too bad I’m returning to New Jersey. Westchase Smiles Institute is the place to go for a dental experience you won’t forget!

Melinda T. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


69. That’s how many miles I drive each way (probably past 100’s of other dentists) to get to Dr. Chilmaza. His cutting-edge technology (especially the CBCT scan) combined with advanced, up-to-date skills made all the difference in my dental treatment. Do not settle for anything less than Dr. Chilmaza and his friendly, conscientious staff!

Rachael M. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


My father was in town for my sister’s wedding and had one of his front fillings come out two days before the wedding. Dr. Cesar Chilmaza was able to get him last minuet, and did an amazing job. My father said that he did a better job fixing it than the original filling! Not only did he do a great job, he and his staff we so friendly and knowledgable and did everything in their power to help take care of him. Thanks to Dr. Cesar my sister’s wedding photos won’t be a disaster!

Isabel M. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


As a mom I am quite fastidious with whomever sees my children. I like to know everything, step by step. Dr.C took his time in explaining everything that would be done and why. I was so impress with his work he now sees the entire family. The office was impeccable. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Truly a pleasure. Who would’ve thought that a visit to the dentist could be this enjoyable!

My son & I found Westchase Smiles a few years ago and I’m so glad we did! We recently moved out of Westchase but we’ve still continued to get our dental care at Westchase Smiles. It’s hard to find a dentist that makes you feel well cared for. We’ve received our preventative care as well as wisdom teeth removal, fillings and crowns. All the staff are very friendly. I highly recommend them!

Dyani Main (Source: Google)


The staff here go above and beyond to give the best customer service and experience. I had to come in for an emergency filling and not only did they fit me in next day despite being fully booked, they were so kind and helpful. You can tell these people genuinely love what they do and get satisfaction from helping others. This is the first review I have ever written for a dentists office in my life, and they deserve it. Thank you Westchase Smiles!

Svatlana S. from Fort Lauderdale, FL (Source: Yelp)


It is very seldom that I feel the need to share my experiences in a posting. Either I am mad as hell or delighted about a service. This time I am elate to share a recent experience in Westchase Smiles Institute. Few years ago, I emigrated from Western Europe to the US to further my career in acting and modeling. Even though, I was born with beautiful denture, lifestyle and eating habits had done some damage. I always felt that it could be improved. But, every dentist has different standards, I always felt uneasy about my smile. Until I was referred to Dr. Chilmaza, I now have a beautiful smile and healthy gums. Also, I was offered reasonable pricing and suitable options for my lifestyle and economy. On top of everything, Dr. Chilmaza took the time to explain how to better take good care of my gums and teeth. Now, I have a stunning and confident smile. Thank you Dr. Chilmaza!!

Dr. C was the first dentist I went to in the past 8 years (I know…. horrible) however, I have such bad anxiety and even worse experiences so I opted to not go. But after my mom recommended him to me, I was shocked! Dr. C was patient, very thorough, kind, and just made the over all experience quite enjoyable (shocking)!! I had all four wisdom teeth pulled out and felt absolutely no pain, as a matter of fact I didn’t even swell! I’m convinced he had the magical touch! I told my boyfriend about him since he’s also very scared of dentists and he says the same about Dr. C. We make the 5 hour commute every time we have to get work done because he’s the only one we trust not to mention his staff always makes us feel at home! Thank you so much Dr. C for taking care of my pearly whites and thank you Westchase team for being the best!

It took me a long time to get my nerve to go to the dentist. Dr C and his staff are awesome and made me feel at ease and made it a less stressful experience. Thank you so much for being so professional and fun at the same time! Lynne Marie

I had four of my wisdom teeth removed and felt safe and the recovery was quick and good. They made me feel well taken care of and was followed up. I recommend this place to my family and friends and so should you! It’s a very family and friend environment!
