A Family-Favorite Local Dental Office in Ada, OK
Searching for a new family dentist isn’t a journey to take lightly. You want to find a dental care team that values their patients, provides comprehensive care that fits you and your family’s needs, and, most importantly, makes you feel comfortable and eager to visit again.
Here are 10 reasons why Ada Smile Place is a family-favorite local dental office, from the mouths of our own community members.
1. Our team member Lindsey is one of the only myofunctional therapists in the Ada, OK, area.
“Lindsay is the only Myofunctional therapist in the area. Her knowledge was so helpful since my son is about to have his 4th tongue tie release. She gave me information that I didn’t know about. We are so lucky to have some one like Lindsay in the area!!” —Katrina Baxter
Orofacial myofunctional therapy is one of many ways we provide an exceptional level of care for our patients. Lindsey continued her education into myofunctional therapy to help patients of all ages get relief from sleep apnea, open-mouth breathing, TMJ disorders, and other problems pertaining to muscular function in the mouth and tongue.
2. We genuinely view our patients as family, and many continue to see us for years to come.
“The staff here is great! I’ve been going here for more than 15 years, and bring my family here now. They always do a fantastic job! Taran did great on my bonus daughter today. They make sure you’re comfortable and answer any questions thoroughly.” —Jonah Puller
Ada Smile Place isn’t new to the area, and most of our patient base consists of individuals and families who’ve visited us since Dr. Trey’s father ran the practice. Our team has consistently provided an exceptional level of care, which is evident in the number of patients who’ve continued to choose us for nearly two decades.
3. Our team is empathetic and experienced at helping those with dental anxiety feel comfortable and respected.
“I would absolutely recommend this office to everybody! I went in with severe dental anxiety and they were AMAZING. Gina went ABOVE and BEYOND to make me feel comfortable and at ease. I cannot thank her enough for her patience and understand!!” —Allison D.
Our staff understands how difficult dental anxiety can be, and we gently encourage patients to open up about their worries or fears, if they feel comfortable. We bring a very gentle approach to dental care and we’ll eagerly work within your comfort zone to quell your anxieties and help you feel a little more confident every time you come back to visit.
4. We follow up with patients after more invasive dental care procedures to ensure they’re doing well.
“He [Dr. Edwards] called the evening before my first appointment to introduce himself, learn a little about me, and see if I had any questions or concerns … made sure I was comfortable during the entire procedure, that I understood what he was doing to my teeth, and continued to check my vital signs throughout my time there … Dr. Trey called this evening (after dental procedure) to see how I was doing and if I had any concerns.” —Andrea Wright
We know that the day before a big dental care procedure can leave you feeling a bit nervous. Our team makes it a habit to reach out the day before oral surgery or a sedation visit to fill you in on what will be happening and how to best prepare. The day after your appointment, we’ll also reach out to see how you’re feeling and answer any questions you might have.
5. Your well-being always comes first and we never recommend unnecessary services.
“The Ada Smile Place has changed my attitude about dentists. Where I usually experienced a lot of unnecessary “upsell” to get the cost of the services higher, Dr. Trey and the staff at ASP have really shown a great concern for my dental wellbeing, giving me plenty of value when I come in to see them.” —Shannon S.
Our practice prioritizes the whole health of our patients, and that means knowing when treatment is necessary and when other, less invasive actions are more appropriate. We never want our patients to refuse care due to concerns over finances or because they don’t trust the recommendations from their care provider. We will never recommend a treatment unless it’s 100% necessary to maintain optimal oral health.
6. Our team loves to work with children, and we eagerly invite parents to bring their young ones in.
“This was Jesse’s first visit to Ada Smile and he did awesome! Jesse is only 8yrs old and my kiddo … The [hygienist] that gave Jesse his very first dental cleaning was wonderful! She talked to Jesse through the whole cleaning procedure and answered all of his questions. He was very much pleased with her dental care. We say Thank you Ada Smile!” —Parent of Jesse C.
We are all about family at Ada Smile Place, and there’s nothing we love more than to see our patients’ children and help them on their journey towards a healthy smile. Our staff is trained to work with children of all ages, including babies and toddlers who are seeing a dentist for the very first time.
7. We always explain to patients why we’re doing what we’re doing during exams and treatment visits.
“I have genuinely never had my mouth examined so thoroughly before. I’m sure my other dentists in the past did a full exam, but didn’t explain everything, but Ada Smile really goes above and beyond the normal exam I remember. While they’re doing my exam, they’re telling me what and why and how and I just really enjoy knowing it all. Thank you guys so much!” —Toshua K.
We want you to feel actively involved in your dental care appointments, even for the simplest oral exam. Our hygienists, assistants, and dentists will always walk you through what they’re doing, why, and how a particular procedure or step is benefiting your oral health. We also welcome patients to ask as many questions as they’d like!
8. From our office atmosphere to personal interactions with staff, we make you feel relaxed and heard.
“If you appreciate being greeted with a smile, in a beautiful environment, being escorted to your window seat, right on time, being given personal assistance as your concerns are written down, then discussed line by line, being offered eye contact alongside gentle dental attention, and being presented with careful explanation of time line, insurance coverage and personal expenditure, then this is a fitting place.” —Amy S.
We take great pride in our office, exam rooms, and our interpersonal relationships with our patients. Part of making patients feel relaxed and respected is going over treatment timelines and expenses in detail. We provide accurate estimates for care, including what your insurance will cover and what you can expect to pay out of pocket.
9. Our dentists provide urgent dental care when you’re struck by a toothache.
“Staff was great. Squeezed me into schedule promptly for emergency visit. Staff was very helpful about not only focusing on and explaining causes of immediate pain issues, but also pro-actively taking steps to help expedite further care in future. Thanks again!” —Taylor J.
Toothaches happen, and they often happen at the worst times! We do our very best to accommodate same-day emergency or urgent care visits so patients are able to get pain relief while we schedule a full exam and treatment appointment.
10. We believe oral health education is valuable and teach patients the importance of the mouth-body connection.
“I love going to Ada Smiles. The staff is incredible. Everyone is always so kind, helpful and informative. I wouldn’t go to another dentistry place to go to … Your teeth and mouth are very important to your health!” —Saraya Wilson
We are strong believers in the oral-systemic health connection. We teach our patients about this unique aspect of their overall health, and really focus on educating patients rather than just treating a problem and sending them on their way.
