Description of Experience:
Recheck on upper veneers and to make plans for future crowns.

Member Comments:
Dr. Edwards helped me prioritize what teeth needed crowns, and showed me where I had problems using a camera as he instructed. Very dedicated dentist and staff with exceptional skill and great communication. Best experience I have ever had!

9/1/2-13

Description of Experience:
My husband had a toothache. He was very unhappy with the first dentist he tried, as we were switching from our original dentist, because of problems with her work. Dr. Edwards diagnosed an infection around the tooth that he called a “dead” tooth. Dr. Edwards removed the tooth.

Member Comments:
The extraction went as well as any extraction could possibly go. ( Dr. Edwards has very modern equipment including a laser to speed healing). The extraction didn’t need stitches, and didn’t bleed too much. My husband didn’t need ice or pain killers. He went back to work the next day (light duty). Dr. Edwards called in the evening to check on how my husband was doing, and his office kept in touch for the next few days. Everyone in the office is very nice, helpful, and just professional.

The healing has gone well, he had a cleaning in the meantime, and the next step will be to fill in the empty space when it fully heals.

Dr Edwards has a new patient interview process that allowed me to find out about the office, their services, and all the staff. I was walked through all their rooms, shown how they prep them, and their technology and hygiene procedures. Dr Edwards has invested extensively in technology that I have never seen in any other dental offices, including a device that allows him to look though a large microscope to perform the dental work.
I also requested an interview with Dr Edwards before I scheduled any treatment. I don’t know of any other dentists and staff that are that accommodating. Everyone at the office knows my name and was always very kind. I was never rushed or intimidated into any treatment. And I was given very clear instructions, and a treatment plan with costs.

I recently moved from Florida to the DC metro area, and was seen by one of the best known dentists in the area. That dentist was instantly impressed, and showed his staff the dental work done by Dr Edwards while emphatically remarking it was excellent work, and done by a dentist who knows what he is doing!

I recently called Dr Edwards’ office to get his opinion on a proposed treatment plan, and he called me back on a Sunday evening – even though I’m not his patient anymore! It is this sort of service by Dr Edwards that motivated me to write my first review on Angie’s List, and to consider traveling to Florida be treated by him.
Thank you!

Dr. Edwards has been my dentist of choice for over 4 years now. I have never had better care. He and his staff are the utmost caring
professionals. He is very serious about his work. Even after being the best, he still continues to pursue continuing education and to excel in his work. My teeth, my mouth and health are great because of Dr. Edwards.

Description of Experience:
I have decided to see Dr Edwards initially to repair a removable piece that had broken. I found an article about him in a local paper and I was drawn in because according to the article, they are a very caring establishment. I am young (35), but I have had dental problems over the years. I have had much work done, only to have it fall apart. In addition, I have come across many providers who have an awful bedside manner. I was so happy at our initial meeting, that I decided to continue on with Dr Edwards to have him address all of my dental needs. The entire staff treated me with respect. Dr Edwards gave me the most thorough initial exam that I have ever had in my entire life. They sat down with me to go over everything, but did not overwhelm me with the cost. They know I have extreme dental anxiety, and so have helped me to have a better experience. So far, I have had two cleanings and a lot of deep decay work done. I have a long way to go before my mouth is restored, but Dr Edwards makes me feel like its possible again to have a healthy beautiful smile. I look forward to a long journey of restoration ahead. I can finally feel normal about going to the dentist again. I never thought that would be possible!

Member Comments:
when you go in to get work performed, you are given headphones and aromatherapy for your comfort. I sometimes can be difficult to numb, so I let Dr Edwards know if I feel anything. If I do, he immediately stops what he is doing to focus on my comfort. He fixed some very deep cavities, which were extremely close to needing root canals. He was able to save many of my teeth this way. He uses top of the line equipment and procedures to restore health to the teeth. I cant say enough about Dr Edwards and his entire staff. I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially if you have anxiety or are embarrassed about your mouth. I finally found someone I can trust! The best part is, I no longer dread going to the dentist!

Description of Experience:
I went to Dr. Edwards for a routine cleaning.

Member Comments:
I have been going to him for many years now, and I don’t have insurance, but he still treats me, and he is a painless dentist. I have recommended him to many people looking for new dentists. I really like him, his staff is great, and I’m really happy with him. He has great chair-side manner, and he’s just a great dentist. I would highly recommend him.

Member Comments:
I took a really bad fall on my face on Jun 25, which apparently sounded the death knell for one of my right upper incisors. As I ate on Jul 2, it snapped off, leaving me looking pretty cartoonish.

I called Dr. Edwards’ office on Jul 3, explained the circumstances. I was initially given an appointment on the 5th, though less than 20 minutes later, I received a call advising they’d had a cancelation and could see me that day.

To save the tooth will require significant restorative work. However, as a temporary fix, Dr. Edwards bonded the broken piece to the tooth next to it. The results are amazing.

I was fortunate enough to have had a wonderful dentist for thirty years while living in California, about whom I can’t say enough good things. Unfortunately, I returned to NY in 2001, where I had pretty sub-standard care. I’ve only been in FL for a couple of months, but I think I found my forever dentist.

I wanted to have my mercury fillings safely removed and replaced with resin/porcelain. Dr. Edwards and his staff are very warm, funny, and friendly which helps calm your anxiety about the upcoming dental work. They take the time to get to know you and work with you to prioritize your goals with your oral health with absolutely no pressure. They treat you with kindness and respect and teach you how to better care for your teeth. Dr. Edwards is very friendly and highly knowledgeable and meticulous with his work. He is extremely detailed-oriented and has a high level of skill and expects the same from his staff. I agree with another reviewer that the shots were practically painless because of the acupressure techniques they utilize. I truly had the best dental experience of my life and plan to go back soon to have the remainder of my mercury fillings replaced.

Member Comments:
I have avoided seeing any dentist for years and was overwhelmed with anxiety when I walked into Dr. Edward’s office for the first time. I was greeted with lots of smiles and a warm welcome. Dr Edward’s and his staff were very caring and understanding during the consultation and did not cause me to feel bad about avoiding the dentist for so long. Dr. Edwards gives you all your options without pressure and they advise you as to what needs attention first. They really try to educate you every step of the way so you have the knowledge to make informed decisions and improve your overall oral health. I was very concerned about my mercury fillings from the 1970’s. I wanted the fillings to be removed using the safest techniques possible. After an extensive online search for a holistic dentist who practiced safe techniques to remove mercury fillings, I found Dr. Edwards. He is meticulous, knowledgeable, and practices safe mercury filling removal. I felt totally confident while Dr. Edwards and his assistant worked on my teeth. I was educated all during the procedure and actually enjoyed listening to their conversation, laughing many times which helped calm my nerves. I was also able to listen to music of my choosing during the procedure to help relax and distract me….it helped a lot! I can’t say enough good things about my experience at Dr. Edward’s practice. I have been to many different dentists over the years and none of them come close to the level of knowledge, skill, and excellence of Dr. Edwards. He is outstanding and we are lucky to have a dentist of this caliber in this part of central Florida.

Description of Experience:
We use Dr. Chris Edwards for dentistry. He is our regular dentist.

Member Comments:
We love him. He is very good with the pain management side of the business. He is so good at how to do it and make even the Novocain or anesthetic injection painless. It is a matter of distracting you when he is getting it done. The work has been excellent but it is not cheap. I have had a couple of implants done and he has done the crowns part of it and the quality has been good. I would say that the prices have been reasonable for what we are getting. It is not cheap but the work is worth it. We haven’t had any trouble with the availability, and when we need to get in, we get in. We like the office environment. He is great in his bedside manner and the punctuality is excellent. His staff is great. I have had no problems with the effectiveness of treatment.
