I have a hard time at age 54 remembering a good dental experience. As a result years of low self esteem, fear of dental work and painful procedures, I was skeptical when I had my consultation with Dr. MacIntyre and his fabulous staff at Smiles For Life Dental Care. Not once did they ever make me feel as if I was too stupid to properly care for my teeth or laugh at me for the fear I felt. As a result of their excellent care and service I have taken my first step in the right direction toward the new smile I know I will have one day! We have a long road ahead of us but I feel I will be able to finally face my fear of dental work and will be proud to smile again - not to mention the health benefits of regular cleanings! --Melody Lowe, Weyers Cave, VA

Thank everyone for making my visit to have my broken tooth taken care of a rewarding experience. Everyone made me feel welcome which helped me to relax. I look forward to my upcoming visits to have all my dental work done. I didn't think I would ever be excited about having my dental work started. Thank You; Sonny Boyers;

" I am so thankful that my husband and I found Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Whiting. Going to the dentist is a great source of anxiety for me but Mr. Whiting and Casey always make me feel comfortable.

Mar 19, 2014
Being apprehensive about going to the dentist is a terrible feeling but the staff and Dr. Mac himself made me feel right at home. I was explained each procedure so I wasn't in the dark. I won't be so scared to go to the dentist anymore. Thanks guys!
Feb 12, 2014
I married into this practice 17 years ago and what a treat it has been. My husband and his family went to Dr. McIntyre, so naturally I went too and now our 3 kids look forward to going. Dr. McIntyre does high quality work. I had 4 bridges done 14 years ago and I have never had any problems with them. I would encourage anyone to use Dr. McIntyre and his team.
Jan 23, 2014
Thanks for the friendly service at your dental office. My daughter has no fear of going to the dentist and looks forward to the familiar smiling faces of the dental hygienists and dentists that examine and clean her teeth.

Sep 13, 2013
Great staff and dentist. They always make sure you are not in pain. Their dental team is also great with kids!!
Sep 4, 2013
The dental team at McIntyre & Whiting was awesome! They took their time with me and explained everything fully. Anything that was questionable in being covered by my dental, they let me know what my options were and went over the costs clearly; not like other practices have done in the past. They understand that though a person may need work, they also understand that cost is also a concern. In working in my mouth, the hygienist was very gentle. I have sensitive teeth and she was aware of that and took her time. Others have often seemingly "not cared" and I was often in a lot of pain. She took her time cleaning and I experienced no sensations. The entire office had positive energy. I always heard laughter and there were smiles everywhere. The patients were definitely a priority and I would highly recommend this team to anyone searching for a dentist!!!
Aug 15, 2013
I have been seeking a dentist where I feel confident in the clinical expertise as well as comfortable during the visits. I was very impressed with this office, and was especially impressed with their outreach to the community.
Aug 3, 2013
It was my daughter Delaney's first time at an adult dentist, she previously say Dr. Boggs. She came out saying to me "Mom they are really nice there, both Bonnie and the other girl (she said the name but I forgot)." Thank you so much for making her feel so at ease!
Jul 23, 2013
I have been going to Dr. McIntyre since I was young and I took my almost 3 year old for the first time and he did great. Bonnie was excellent with my son and let him help her while she brushed and flossed his teeth. I was so impressed that he let her even look in his mouth, but he felt very comforted by her. Dr. McIntyre was very gentle with my son as well and kept the appointment quick and simple. A huge thank you!
Jul 18, 2013
Great experience from start to finish...thanks Tammy and Dr. McIntyre!
Jul 11, 2013
The team was great at explaining to my teenage son what he needed to do to improve his dental health and help preserve his smile. It was done in a way that didn't "lecture" him for what he had been falling behind and lacking on, as it was "past" and he was told that that day was new and a clean state to start fresh and begin to take the care he needed to of his teeth and mouth. I greatly appreciate it very much!
Jul 7, 2013
I finally like going to the dentist! The staff is always very friendly and professional, and I feel like I fit right in as part of the family when I am there. I certainly would recommend them to anyone that wants to be able to enjoy going to the dentist!
Jul 4, 2013
I received a very thorough cleaning from friendly staff. The office atmosphere is welcoming, friendly, and makes going to the dentist not so bad. And the muffins are awesome!!
Jun 28, 2013
Un lugar muy acojedor....
Jun 12, 2013
The front office was very pleasing to work with. They greeted me with a smile and informed me that Dr. McIntyre was running a little behind. I was very appreciative that they let me know what was going on. The dental assistant was very great as well. She told me what she would be doing before doing so and she was very nice. Dr. McIntyre was great. He wanted to be sure that I was satisfied with what he had done. He also showed me the before and after pictures which amazed me. I would highly reccomend this office to anyone and everyone!
May 17, 2013
My hygienist Cathy Batten has Dr. McIntyre's hands. I didn't feel the anesthesia at all. She did such a wonderful job and my gums are already healing. Thanks Cathy, you are wonderful.
May 14, 2013
Everything was very thorough! I have never had a dentist take such time and care and go into such detail about everything. I have been going to the dentist every year since I cant even remember and this team found so many things and showed them to me instead of just saying okay we need to drill this without thinking twice. Also I was very happy that we are trying alternatives before skipping straight to drilling. I don't mine getting the fillings but I am more than happy to try other options to improve the problem first. I did wish that I would have know ahead of time how long the appointment was going to be I would have prepared and planned my day better.
May 14, 2013
I have experienced my hair pulled by a loose instrument or maybe a detail on the front of the hygienist's jacket. I have had to remove a hand of the same hygienist from my nose. An instrument has shaved the inside of my front teeth during a tooth extraction, leaving several feeling rough ever since then. Truthfully I feel as though I am a "test dummy" for a newly graduated group of dental students.
May 8, 2013
Excellent customer service.
May 3, 2013
Great staff and outstanding service! Thank you for your gentle touch and professionalism.
Apr 26, 2013

Feb 3, 2013
The best dentist in town. I always look forward to going. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and I have never had a bad experience there.

Jan 5, 2013
I really liked the hygenist. She was very pleasant but did not take my time talking too much. In the past several vistits I have had someone who stopped working to talk about personal things - making my appointment longer and my getting to work later. I make early morning appointments to avoid missing work.
Dec 22, 2012
The team is friendly and professional. their process was explained clearly and my dental needs prioritized. The staff made sure I was comfortable throughout the visit.
Dec 9, 2012
I was impressed with the concern about my dental issues. The way they went about explaining the best way to take care of my problems, and the way they try to help you through the process, and control the pain of it.
Dec 1, 2012
Dental Exam & Cleaning After I arrived and completed paperwork I was able to go right to my chair. The care nurse took several x-rays that the hygienist/dentist reviewed at some point during the exam. No one made it difficult for me to follow their suggestions/opinions. My appointment did run longer than normal, but the hygienist did a remarkable job getting all the plaque buildup without having to numb me.
Nov 14, 2012
I had two appointments this week and neither time was I greeted when I signed in for my appointment, but I didn't take it personal. Just much different from other times when I arrived. I always feel welcome by all the other girls in the back and not to mention Dr. Mac. :) :) I really like Tamara also, she always speaks to me and she is so sweet! I always enjoy being in your office!
Nov 4, 2012
Dr. Mac and his team really get the concept of customer service. Top notch from arrival to departure.
Nov 2, 2012
I loved the muffin :) oh and the dental work too
Oct 5, 2012
We had a very good experience at your office. My daughter was nervous being her first time at your office. However, the hygentist and over all atmosphere made her feel at ease.
Sep 6, 2012
The staff and Dentists were very nice and helpful. They treated me as a person not just a patient.
Aug 30, 2012
The staff is friendly and keep you well informed of the procedure. I love the fact I got a crown with 1 visit!! No temporary!!
Aug 30, 2012

Apr 19, 2012
Kathy is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apr 12, 2012
I have lived in many states in my lifetime and honestly never experienced such a attentive, courteous, balanced and professional dental office before.
Apr 11, 2012
The dental assistant was very friendly and helpful,kind, and considerate. I forget her name, but it started with a C and she has only been there 3 months. But consider her an asset to your practice, she noticed things she even pointed out to the Dr. and seem to be more concerned than he was with my problem,I havent had any work done by Dr. Whiting yet, so I hope he will do a good job with my upcoming crown,with the least amount of pain. He could work on his bedside manner some. A little bit of a smart alec attitude.
Apr 4, 2012
I have had my unpleasant experiences at the dentist in the past but Smiles For Life put me at ease and allowed me to look forward to the end result of my dental plan
Mar 28, 2012
Really nice office. Helpful and great staff!
Mar 12, 2012
Best dentist you can go to!!! Excellent!
Feb 29, 2012
Our 7 year-old came home with a smile on his face and lots of stories to tell. He had a great visit with Cathy and Dr. McIntyre. Thanks for taking care of our earlier issues, this was a tremendously better visit. Also, thanks to Cathy for being such an amazing hygenist and providing outstanding customer service. Craig
Feb 29, 2012
Excellent dental care. Very thorough and friendly. Would recommend to anyone.
Feb 16, 2012
For a 13 year old, the appointment was execessive in length and 2 hygnenist worked on him while trying to discuss his dental situation (he starts braces in a few weeks not with this dentist)with him and no parent in the room. Also, the hygenist put fluoride varnish on his teeth without asking him or a parent. He left the appointment complaining that he was in the chair for a long time and that the hygenist were rough and made his gums/teeth hurt. He was fine with the doctor portion of his check-up, but the hygenist part was not a good experience. (submitted by Dad)
Feb 15, 2012
As always an enjoyable experience.
Feb 9, 2012
Thank you for taking me in for an emergency and I plan to return for future visits. The main reason is how you handle insurance reimbursements and my payments.
Feb 8, 2012
Thank you for your great work in welcoming me as a new patient.
Feb 1, 2012
very pleased, I feel i'm in good hands. Just wished they were a participating dental practice.
Jan 31, 2012
Wonderful caring staff and a wide range of services. Would highly recommend.
Jan 13, 2012
The best dentist around. No waiting, friendly, knowledgeable and high quality service. I have heard many complaints from friends about other dentists and I can't think of one for this office.
Jan 3, 2012
I was looking for a dentist that I would feel comfortable with. I felt very comfortable and felt the hygienist was very gentle when cleaning my teeth. Very friendly staff and very welcoming atmosphere!
Dec 15, 2011
I rate it as the best dental appointment/checkup I have ever had. Everyone was very professional but at the same time very very pleasant. I am trying to remember everyone's name but I may not remember correctly. If I don't have them right then I apologize. I would especially like to mention Tammy Sue, Bonnie, Johnnalea and Samantha. I am calling the young lady at the check-in desk Samantha. If that is not her name then I will try better to remember the next time. They and all the rest of your staff were so good.
Dec 9, 2011
Thanks to your office for taking time and effort to collect candy for our troops!! We appreciate you and our troops.
Nov 4, 2011
I have used Dr. McIntyre as my dentist since my very first dentist appointment as a child. The team is absolutely phenomenal, each member is very personable and sincere. During my last visit I had to get my very first cavity filled, 23 years and then one tiny cavity due to deep grooves. Dr. McIntyre was on vacation but I had to have the filling done while I was home on fall break so I went ahead and scheduled to see Dr. Whiting. I was nervous about having the procedure with a different dentist, but Dr. Whiting was also fabulous! Before the filling began, Dr. Whiting made sure that my gums were completely numb. The procedure was quick and I didn't feel a thing! I have recommended this practice to friends before and I continue to HIGHLY recommend Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Whiting's practice in Bridgewater, Va!
Oct 26, 2011
I've grown to completely trust, appreciate and value the dental care I receive at the Drs. McIntyre and Whiting clinic.
Oct 20, 2011
I have never liked going to the dentist, but your team is very caring and understanding. Keep up the good work! :)

It was a long time to be in the chair with my mouth open, but I understood it would be that way due to having two caps. All went really well and I'm totally satisfied. Dr. McIntyre was his friendly, professional and competent self. The young lady assisting him was delightful. I was glad to see her enthusiasm about learning and it was truly ok that it was on me! (Wish I could remember her name.)
Jul 13, 2010
Laura was soo comfortable coming there for her 1st dental visit! I loved that everyone was so friendly & actually took time to explain everything & ask if I had questions. By FAR the best dentist we've used so far. Thank you.

He was patient and nice with us both. We had a great visit. Thank you so much!!!
