Dr.  Mays is awesome!

He has been my children’s dentist for the thirteen years and they love him, plus the office staff is always attentive and courteous.

Dr. Mays is patient with the children, very friendly and I respect his opinions.  Also, he is easy to talk to, approachable and he is a great person who loves what he does.

  I received Dr. Mays name from a mother I respected in my son’s mommy and me class when he was turning 4yo.  He is now 19 and finished his first year at UF! My 2nd son who is turning 15 has also been under Dr. Mays care twice yearly since he was 3yo.  While dental care for me growing up in the 1960’s and 1970’s was always traumatic, my children have had stress free preventative dentistry seamlessly from the beginning.  Dr. Mays has always been accessible for questions and was also an advocate when I needed him during the 3 complicated phases of my younger son’s orthodontia.  I highly recommend including Dr. Mays as a solid, dependable part of your child’s healthcare team!

Every layer of this office is geared towards kids! From the lobby, to the staff, to the visit with Dr. Mays.   I am grateful for Dr. Mays warm and easy approach to kids.  He has ensured that my children are NOT afraid of the dentist’s chair.

From the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave, an appointment with Dr. Mark Mays is a highly enjoyable experience (even for the childrenJ). I have had the pleasure of sending my four children to Dr. Mays since 2007. The office is a relaxed, fun environment that caters to every child in every way.  The amazing office staff is consistently warm, friendly and efficient.  Dr. Mays and his dental technicians are extremely knowledgeable, fun and they really connect with the children.  Their entire office staff has a genuine concern for the children and their families.  Whether we have come in for a cleaning or a major procedure, the level of care has been outstanding.  It is wonderful to have a dentist who is an expert in his field and really makes each child feel special.  We all look forward to seeing Dr. Mays and everyone in his office and you will too!

  We have been visiting Dr. Mark and staff for over 4 years.  Each visit is consistently pleasant.  We are greeted at the front desk with a smile, the assistants are extremely kind and caring to each child’s needs and Dr. Mays is warm, professional and thorough.
