I have been a patient here since 2000. I can’t say enough about the team and Dr. McDonald. They always take great care of me. I have referred many people here and they have always been happy too. I love the one visit crowns with no temporary and second visit. The best numbing in town, absolutely painless. They respect my time and are never late. Love these guys! – Larry C. via Yelp

i’ve been to many dentist through out my over 6 decades on this planet . doc rabie and her staff are the best. they don’ b.s. you, they give you all the options . they don’t degrade you because maybe you didn’t take good care of your choppers and maybe, like me you only went to the dentist when you absolutely had to… i did alot of research on my own . i had another reason for checking these mouth doctors out ” i have a real fear of needles , . there is a new way of getting those gums to sleep . . the only thing stopping me now was the money. the friendly staff asked me if i needed help getting financed. they called me up the next day and they arranged for an interest free loan. they are all great but i do have a favorite she is the greeter and appointment maker. always has a smile and some good suggestions maybe some day i’ll see her on the dunes…….when you open the door it doesn’t look like or smell like a dentist office . now that most of my work is completed i’ll probably stop in have a juice or cup of coffee with my pals at lifetime smiles. ps. i was at the point where i wanted to have whatever had to be done so i could smile again and not have to choose where i was going to chew because of a bad tooth. i only went to the dentist when you absolutely had to. don’t put your teeth off youi’ll wish you hadn’t – Jack A. via Google+

I needed to have two old fillings replaced. When I arrived for my appointment, I was seen on time and I was prepared with careful attention to my apprehension and nervousness at the procedure. Dr. McDonald and Jayme took the time to explain the procedure and equipment being used at each step. The anesthetic didn’t require a needle, and was not at all uncomfortable. Throughout the procedure, they kept me relaxed and at ease, they even let you bring and play your own music while they treat you. The two fillings were replaced quickly and efficiently. That evening Dr. McDonald called to make sure I was doing OK and that I had no problem eating. I did not have any soreness from the anesthetic spots on my gums. I recommend Lifetime Smiles for their highly professional manner and the relaxing atmosphere they provide. They get 10 out of a possible 10 for my score. – Mike A. via Google+

Lifetime Smiles is a very professional dental office that uses modern technology to the fullest. Dr. McDonald employees the newest science, material, equipment and knowledge to make going to the dentist a rather pleasant experience. My wife recently had a crown replaced and was amazed that it only took one visit. She tells others it was painless, she did not have to have a temporary crown and it was completed in two hours. I am also very impressed with Dr. McDonald thoroughness and the way she plans ahead if there is even the hint of decay. Today she took an additional picture because of a shadow that looked suspicious which turned out to be nothing. Better to be safe than sorry! Stacey is our hygienist and she is fantastic. I can not imagine anyone could do this job any better or less painless. The office staff is also very nice and accommodating. – Ron G. via Google+

My wife and I have been patients for more than a decade. The office is so friendly that it is like visiting close friends at home, and the work has been professional in every way. If it is possible to really enjoy “visiting the Dentist” I actually enjoy the experience. Absolutely painless Dentistry, with a friendly staff and pleasant surroundings — it is hard to imagine anything better. I commend this office to anyone looking for friendly people, and a First-Class dental experience. With 2,500+ published columns in newspapers, I normally write about things I am angry about — I have NEVER been angry, or even concerned with the visits to Dr. McDonald – Allen H. via Google+

OMG! Over 3 hours at the…the…DENTIST! After my usual cleaning, Dr. McDonald discovered decay beneath a gold crown. OH, JOY and RAPTURE, I Thought. After a “Tammy” insurance check, I decided I wanted to keep my teeth. I arrived on time, was greeted by Tammy who is always friendly and with a super sense of humor. I was then taken back to THE CHAIR. Dr. McDonald is on the cutting edge of dentistry bringing new technologies and techniques to her practice. She expertly removed the gold crown, repaired the damage, designed a new cap produced in her office. No Temporary, all finished in ONE Visit! All the while Dr. McDonald engaged in good natured banter. She has an easy laugh which enhances the experience. Finally, she gave me a gold nugget and a Gold Metal experience. Professional, courteous, cutting edge. – Patrick S. via Google+

My kids LOVE getting their checkups at Lifetime Smiles! The office staff is so friendly and we love the hot and cold drinks we get to choose from while we wait. My ten year old son needed a refresher on his flossing and the dental hygienist was soooo patient and kind with him! She took extra time modeling how to do it and then let him try it himself before she finished the job. I was really impressed that she didn’t talk down to him or act impatient while he practically tied himself in knots with the floss!! My other son who is twelve actually had such a positive influence at his last visit six months ago that he has been flossing every day and I was able to give him a cash bonus right there in the office for no cavities!! Dr. McDonald was out of town and the other dentist was very friendly and knowledgable as well. I thoroughly recommend this dental practice to families!! – Amy W. via Yelp

I’ve been coming here for years, I think since 2000, due to a referral from a colleague. No matter how far away I move, I will not change dentists. I’ve always had a great experience with them. Dr. McDonald & the entire staff are fabulous. I highly recommend them, especially if you have sensitive teeth and don’t like getting them worked on – you won’t have problems here! –  Jj C. via Yelp

Over the years I have foundvvarious venues to extoll my confidence in Dr. Robbie Macdonald and her staff. For more than a decade my wife and I have been her patient, and every visit — and there have been many — has been as comfortable as visiting old friends. My own website has recommended Lifetime Smiles for many years for a good reason. Like so many others, I remember the discomfort of visiting a Dentist, a discomfort I also experienced until I found this dental practice. I commend them to anyone looking for painless competence with a neighborhood-friendly attitude. – Allen H. via Yelp

I started coming here since a few people from my office also came here. They recently remodeled the office to give it a more modern feel. Dr. McDonald is very friendly and and has taken care of all my dental issues. They have always been great with service. They send postcard and email reminders about appointments, which makes it near impossible to “forget” your appointment. And if you miss it you will be charged, as I found out a few years ago when I missed my first and only appointment. Since I haven’t used any other dentist offices to compare prices, I can only guess they are competitive with others out there. They work with patients on taking care of payments/bills, which I do appreciate. I’ll keep going back! – Humberto G. via Yelp
