"I had the pleasure of subbing at Vonore Dental for awhile when some extra Dental Hygiene services were needed and they are a great group of very professional people and they really care about their patients! I have since moved on in dentistry and have gone into endodontics, but I would certainly recommend this group for your dental needs!!

"My appt this morning was with Becky, a hygienist at VONORE dental. She was professional and personable, explaining things as she went along. I'm usually anxious at the dentist, but she put me at ease, and while she worked quickly, I feel she did a great job. I'd like to say thank you, Becky, for a making my appointment a pleasant one.

"Dr. Eric Fugate and his highly trained dental staff at Vonore Dental have been providing us with outstanding care since we moved to the area more than 10 years ago. My check-up/cleaning appointment was scheduled for July. I called Vonore Dental Monday morning June 8 and advised the office personnel that I was having knee replacement surgery on July 1 and wanted to make sure any dental issues would be addressed before that date. I was promptly scheduled for an exam that afternoon with Dr. Fugate who found an issue and immediately put plans in place to deal with it before July 1. I still needed my teeth cleaned, but at that time there were no openings before July 1. On my drive home I received a call asking me if I could be in the dental office at 8 am the next morning for my cleaning. My cleaning was professionally and painlessly completed and I am very grateful for the concern and care from everyone at Vonore Dental.

"I cracked a molar badly and needed to get a crown ASAP. First, Vonore Dental did a great job of maintaining a clean, secure environment due to Covid-19. Second, getting a permanent crown in 2 hours from Dr. Fugate was incredible! Fits perfectly and the price was reasonable. The entire staff is wonderful. I love modern dentistry! Highly recommend Vonore Dental Practice!!

"Today I had my first appointment since the outbreak of Covid 19, with hygienist Judy, who was very thorough, friendly and did an excellent job. I was extremely pleased with the overall way that the office handled precautionary measures with respect to our new normal guidelines being practiced for both patients and staff. Not once was I uncomfortable, nor did I feel that my health was in jeopardy! Kudos to Dr. Fugate, Dr. Johnson and the entire Vonore Dental staff for excellence in performance and friendly patient service. Thank You!
