It’s always an anxious moment in life when getting established with a new Dentist - so many factors go into making it a successful experience. So far, after two visits I am relieved to say this Dentist and his staff receive my highest praise! Efficient, caring, professional able to address my issues in a way that allowed me to comprehend and be a part of my ongoing dental decisions and supportive of my concerns - not dismissive . I predict Dr. Planes new practice in Vero Beach will be an extremely busy one and am happy to be a part of his success ! Debra A.

I was so nervous to even walk in dentist office. The staff is so nice, from the front office to techs that actually work on you. Even from my first visit they act like they have known you for years. And Dr Plane is awesome, amazing, and perfect. He works fast and there is absolutely no pain. I give them my highest rating.

Dr. Planes was very professional and was able to identify my tooth problem and gave me two scenarios for solving the problem. I made my choice and Dr.Planes immediately began the selected procedure. I am very pleased with the treatment and hope that the mild abscess will be absorbed.

I arrived 10 minutes before my appointment. Christina took me back to the room within 5 minutes. She explained the procedure Dr. Planes would be doing and asked me if I had any questions. Stephanie was the tech that worked with Dr. Planes as he was preparing two of my teeth for crowns. All of the staff are very friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Planes. Marsha

I have had several what I would consider ( as a "civilian") major procedures with Dr Planes and I can say unequivocally: He's absolutely the best dentist I have ever had, bar none. Very pleasant personality very competent and is able to Alleviate patient's apprehension. I have literally experienced no pain. As far as the cosmetic aspect, he has a very artistic Eye, with great attention to detail Because of my job I'd rather you didn't publish my name but if anybody wants to call me I'll be happy to talk to them

A good visit. One thing I liked is that the Doctor knew his limitations, recommending me to an oral surgeon who could remove the tooth that I am having trouble with. Also he has a Wonderful assistant :)

I cannot say enough about the incredible care I received at this office, from start to finish. I am one of "those" who have acute anxiety about seeing a dentist, & haven't been in over 15 years. Christina, Kim, & Dr Planes went overboard trying to make me comfortable, secure, & relaxed. Everything was explained in fine detail & I was never made to feel embarrassed about the condition of my teeth. They strove to ensure the plan to help me was within my budget. I'm now looking forward to getting the work done and my fear is gone! Thank you to all!!

I just recently moved to Vero Beach and was long overdue for a dental checkup & fillings. I found Dr. Planes office through a Google search and was pleasantly surprised with how friendly the staff was! My first appointment for fillings was quick, easy, and not at all traumatic like my previous experiences with the dentist. Dr. Planes is someone I will recommend to all of my friends & family!

Unfortunately, a tooth extraction was necessary. It went smoothly, without pain. Post operative instructions were given to me in the office as well as a printed copy for me to take home. Dr. Planes and his dental assistant were pleasant and thoughtful of my situation. My spouse and I are happy patients for over 2 years now. We trust him.

Christina is an asset for Alex Plains, DDS. Proper, professional, and personable, that's Christina ! Truly, after my first visit, I really thought, in no way was this office suitable for me. Dr. Plains, I feel is outstanding in every manor, however I was not comfortable with his staff, and told him so. I felt some were not neat, articulate, and not professional...NOT so, with Christina. Thank you, Dr. Plains

Alex is great! He has a very relaxing demeanor and always takes the time to explain his work - which I absolutely appreciate. I was in for an 8am root canal; he and Christina took great care of me. The procedure was quick and clean, they're hands were steady and confident. The office staff and hygienists I've worked are equally awesome, very friendly and helpful. I'd recommend his office to my own mother!

Dr. Planes is a very knowledgeable and expert dentist. He has a heart of gold and tons of compassion for his patients. If he had not worked with me I would never be able to afford to have my teeth fixed. I feel blessed that I found him and he is my dentist for life. I would never trust anyone else the way I trust him. He constantly checked to make sure that I was comfortable and not in pain. No dentist has ever done that for me. He truly cares and is a man of honor. I recommend him to everyone because he can fix whatever your problem is.

This place is by far the best around in Vero. I've never had an issue with appointments or scheduling. Great, attentive and knowledgeable staff, and Dr. Planes is a superb dentist. I've never enjoyed going to the dentist, but they make it as comfortable as possible with the option of glasses, or headphones or other choice comforts. The room has a beautifully large window where you can look out and see the water, or you can watch Netflix on the big screen tv! I highly reccomend trying out Dr Planes.
