We are trying to find a dentist in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. We have narrowed our search down a bit and are thinking of Dr Dorociak, Dr Yatros, Dr Hoffman or Cooper Creek Dental. Can anyone share any experience (good or bad) or recommend another dentist. We have wonderful dentists back home, but the drive to see them is becoming a bit much.

Thank you

Thank you
Dr. Yatros has been my dentist for the past 18 years, he's awesome and even living in Sarasota for the past five years, I make that drive out to Anna Maria because I feel he's the best. He's done my crowns (all gold) and after care from when I had a mandibular sagital split back in 1990. I've heard numerous horror stories of certain dental practices in Sarasota & Bradenton and I will stick with him and his wonderful staff.

Default Dentists

I tried out Cooper Creek Dental, which has been in business for about 2 years. Seemed alright, "however" I know I'm less than perfect myself BUT...I originally scheduled with Cooper Creek or tried to but they did not answer the phone. So I tried back and left a message. They never responded back. I called again 3 days later and let them know the trouble and they just blamed the machine for not working. Anyway I did go in and they are ok (very nice modern office space) but just be sure to let them know if you don't want all the extra things they want to treat you with that are not covered by your insurance, like a cancer screening, and flouride treatment. Otherwise they pretty much tell you a minute before doing it.

Google the name of the dentist you are interested in. Lots of websites have comments from patients.

Premier Dentistry - Dr. Schwartz is phenomenal, along with his staff. He is in south Sarasota, near Stickney Pt and 41.
Whoever you choose, I highly recommend going to a private dentist, and not one of those places where several work together.

Thumbs down dentist review/sarasota

Don't use Dr Thomas Bowles in Sarasota. Work requested not performed. Offered implants but cannot perform work. Staff is extremely unhelpful. Way overpriced. Work done that was never requested.

We have ben patients of Dr Jeff Mahan for over 20 yrs. He's gentle, caring & will try his best to work with you if you're having a rough time w finances. (no promises-but he's been good to us) We've recommended him to many friends & all have been very pleased & stayed w him.

Dr. Yatros is over priced - not worth the drive.
Cooper Creek is OK for cleanings but office is disorganized.
Go to Top Dentist for a list of the top docs in Sarasota and Bradenton. The dentists vote on each other - they cannot pay to be on the list. Top Dentists in Sarasota, Florida - topDentists
Many good general dentists on this list.
Always get a second opinion for more complex or expensive dental work.
Good Luck
