I have been a patient of South Orange Dental Center for a few years now, its always a delightful experience. I am never in the waiting area for very long, front desk staff are very professional, kind and attend to you right away. The dental hygenists really make you feel comfortable before and after whatever procedure you are receiving. Dr. Rosemond is amazing he checks on all his patients, asks if you have any concerns about your dental health.

Jasmine S

The best dental experience hands down. They  are confronting, respectful, professional and organized. They make sure every visit is a pleasant one. Staff is very friendly and always smiling. I chose this office because I heard great things about it and so glad I decided to go. If you are someone who has fear or anxiety about going to the dentist this is the place for you. I now am someone who looks forward to my dental appointments.

Ian S

I brought my 1.5yo daughter to Dr Strachan for her first ever dentist appointment. From the moment we walked in it was a wonderful experience. The staff was very nice and kid friendly. The wait wasn’t long to get roomed or to see the doctor. My daughter does not like to get her teeth brushed at home but cooperated so much better for Dr Strachan. She definitely works very well with children.

Dayna P

My first experience was amazing! I have never walked into a Dental Office and felt at home, until I came here. The staff is very welcoming and professional. Office is very clean. Dr. Rosemond is absolutely great! I found a new Dental home.
