Here’s why our patients are smiling about Dr. Douglas Fonville

  • Going to the dentist is hardly something to get excited over, but if you must go I cannot recommend Ideal Dental in uptown enough. The staff was incredibly friendly, dr. Fonville would not stop cracking jokes (very hard to laugh when someone is digging in your mouth, but it took away the tension) and the experience overall was excellent. The rooms are clean, you can watch some Food Network shows while you’re laying down and even for a root canal I was in and out in an hour. Easily my best dental experience yet.
