Rave Reviews From Our Happy Patients
“Had a great experience with everyone I dealt with today. I Would definitely recommend this place to everyone! Everyone is so friendly and very professional. I’m usually terrified of dentists but I was very comfortable today.”Abraham S
“I recently moved here and was in desperate need of finding a new dentist. I stumbled across Oconee Dental Associates when searching for dentists that accept my insurance in the area. I've since gone there for fillings and a cleaning and they are a-m-a-zing! They are super friendly and make you feel very comfortable. They do an excellent job and go above and beyond if you have any concerns. I would highly recommend them to anyone!”Anna L
“Wonderful staff, always friendly. Dr. Hammes is amazing! They always do their best to make sure you're as comfortable as you can be for what they're doing. They're knowledgeable and always open about what exactly they're doing and what you should be feeling. Never thought I'd have anything nice to say to a dentist after having teeth pulled, but they made it painless and easy.”Kimberlee S

“I have been a patient of Dr. Bryson for 35 + years and was a little skeptical when he merged his practice with ODA. Today was my first visit to have a cleaning. The staff is absolutely amazing. Lindsay, the dental hygienist, did an awesome job and answered all my questions. She is very professional, helpful and friendly. It was great to see Dr. Bryson and comforting to know he’s still hard at work. It was also great to see his nurse Tammy and speak to her. In my opinion she’s one of best!! I highly recommend ODA.”Jim M
“I have been going to this dentist since 2015. The staff is kind and courteous. If you have a dental emergency they will try to fit you in asap, even if they are fully booked that day. Very happy to call them my dentist.”Candice G
