Afraid Of The Dentist?

You’re not alone.
We understand that for many patients,
seeing the dentist can be stressful and scary.

That’s why we use I.V. sedation to
remove your fears
and help you complete your treatment.

… Little (or no) memory of the procedure?
… Fewer visits?
… A team that really does get it?

You don’t have to let fear hold you back anymore.

We also want you to be able to
use your dental benefits on your treatment
not on your initial examination.

That’s why we offer
complimentary exams and x-rays to all new patients.

We LOVE the dental hygienist! She is very interactive with the patients and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. She is very honest with what she shares/teaches you, but never comes across as judgemental.

Such kind and compassionate people at Advance Dentistry. Everyone is always so friendly, pleasant and attentive which helps you feel at ease. I really think everyone in this office goes above and beyond. They don't overbook, they are prompt and I never feel rushed. I have been to many dentists who seem very condescending and judgemental. That is defintely not the case here. My whole family always has a great experience here and we leaving feeling great.

I was very worried about my 1st required root canal due to trauma to the tooth. I did research and choose gentle wave. My dental exam was the most thorough I've ever had with a dentist, the cleaning was top notch. I requested a Valium for the root canal and opted out of sedation and nitrous. The root canal was so pain free I actually kept falling asleep through the procedure probably because of the valium. I would suggest anyone to use Advance dentistry my experience was 100% the best you can get at a dentist.

This was the best experience I’ve had going to the Dentist in all my life. I’m 45 years old and I have bad teeth. I have all my bottoms and all my left side and my front I lost all my right side in this Dentist made me feel so comfortable And OK with moving forward with them and getting a partial I had to get a root canal and a extraction and I was so calm. I did get some nitrous because I do fear the dentist but this dentist Timothy McDuffee made me feel so calm the staff there was so welcoming so nice they are on the pricey side but I will pay the price for the experience that I had and I will continue to go to this Dentist. Don’t hesitate specially if you have a fear of the dentist.

Having had less-than-pleasant experiences with my previous dentist, my parents recommended I give Dr. McDuffee at Advanced Dentistry in Hilliard a try. I’m so glad they did!! My initial visit wasn't for a routine exam but rather an urgent dental emergency, and from the moment I stepped through their doors, it was a truly exceptional experience, worthy of a solid 5 stars.They went above and beyond to assist me during a time when fear was my constant companion. They made me feel completely at ease, draped me in a warm, cozy blanket and administered "laughing gas" before gently connecting me to IV sedation, erasing the frightening memories of the emergency. At that moment, I knew I had found my new dental home.As someone who has always harbored dental anxiety and had avoided the dentist for a second, I needed 2 cavities and a root canal, and I can't emphasize enough how outstanding their work was. They also did some cosmetic work for me. All of the work they’ve done has been pain free, comfortable and anxiety free! I was always treated with the upmost respect and kindness.I've never felt more comfortable in a dental office. They generously cover me with that big, soft blanket every time I’ve had work done, and the combination of nitrous and IV sedation ensured my comfort throughout every appointment. Their staff even held my hand, offering unwavering support during the IV insertion procedure, not once but twice!The entire team, from the dentists on staff to the hygienists to the front desk personnel and the billing department, exudes warmth and camaraderie. It's evident that they all genuinely care about the practice's success, creating a true sense of teamwork. Dr. McDuffee possesses a unique ability to put you at ease with his humor, kindness, patience, and remarkable skill.The office is impressively equipped with state-of-the-art technology, boasting top-notch electronics and machinery. The billing process was smooth and straightforward, and I was able to apply for and secure a line of credit for my procedure right there in the office.I cannot express enough how thankful I am to have discovered Advanced Dentistry Hilliard. Now, along with my parents, I am a lifelong patient (as long as I don’t move back to Miami! that would be the onlyyyy reason!!) 😅If you're someone who, like me, used to be anxious about dental visits (but no longer!), or if you're simply in search of a dentist and dental office that genuinely cares, I wholeheartedly recommend Advanced Dentistry. It's worth the drive, no matter where in Ohio you reside.A heartfelt thank you to Dr. McDuffee and his exceptional staff for making such a positive impact on my dental health and well-being. Thank you for making a difference in people’s lives!

This was my first time going under to get my wisdom teeth taken out so I was very nervous as I don’t like the dentist anyways from previous experiences. But this staff is amazing, Angel I think her name was helped me twice and made me feel so comfortable and gave me a blanket before my procedure which made me feel ever more comfortable. As well as everyone that worked there. I highly recommend Advanced Dentistry for any of your dental needs !!!! Thank you all so much

Super nice staff, clean location, very open and transparent about every step of the visit and seemed to genuinely care about my comfort and my understanding of technical terms and what they were seeing with my teeth. I have only had my initial visit so far but I am incredibly impressed with the professionalism and kindness of the entire staff. Am returning soon for surgery ro remove my wisdom teeth and a deep cleaning, and have no worries that the team will be as amazing as my previous visit. Pricing also seems reasonable, I am unsure if payment plans are an option though.

I usually get really bad anxiety when I’m at the dentist and it’s been a while since I’ve been to the dentist but Dr. McDuffee and associates made me feel very welcomed and got to the root of everything that I was there for.

I have been to a few dentists in my life. Some good experiences and some bad. I waited a long time (to long actually) to go back out of fear and anxiety. Today, I took a chance and tried Advanced Dentistry and I can’t say enough WONDERFUL things about my experience. 5 stars from start to finish! A special shout out to Christie (I apologize if I spelled it wrong) for taking the time to walk me step by step thru my appointment and April for her patience while I decided my next step in my dental health.
Rick R.
19:49 07 Mar 22
From my initial phone call at 7:30 in the morning to sending me home with follow-up instructions and antibiotics, I had to say that every single individual that I had help me today was absolutely stellar kind empathetic patient, and truly gave me the impression that they cared about helping me get out of pain. There was some question as to whether or not I could be sedated and knocked out for the procedure but they were able to do that and I couldn’t be happier from the moment I walked in everybody put me at ease and I felt like I was in good hands any further dental needs that I may have I will definitely be going to advance dentistry

A dental extraction (having a tooth pulled) is the removal of tooth from the bone.

Wisdom teeth generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 25.
Their arrival can often be accompanied by challenges like
pain, crowding, damage to surrounding teeth, and infection.

Most patients prefer I.V. Sedation for their extractions.
