Verified Patient Reviews
Professional, affordable, and considerate.
My visit was a pleasant surprise. I was to have two fillings and the appointment was for 4:20 PM. I was seen slightly earlier than the scheduled appointment and it was completed in 20 minutes!
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
Always a pleasure. Makes going to the dentist enjoyable.
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
Very professional and very friendly. Makes going to the dentist a pkeasure!
Very professional staff and the best dentist I have ever had . My crown ( an old one NOT placed by Dr Planes) fell out . I was able to get a prompt appointment and had it fixed . Very very satisfied .
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!
TRULY PROFESSIONAL IN ALL RESPECTS. NOT ONLY DR PLANES BUT EVERYONE ON HIS STAFF THAT I CAME IN CONTACT WITH. THERE IS A 'HAPPY' ATMOSPHERE IN THIS PRACTICE NOT FOUND IN OTHERS I AM FAMILIAR WITH. THE BIG SURPRISE CAME AFTER EXTENSIVE EXAMINATION AND PICTURE TAKING . . . THE BILL. TOTALLY INEXPENSIVE FOR TOP QUALITY WORKMANSHIP. PLUS - ALL WORK DONE RIGHT ON THE PREMISES IN THE SAME DAY! MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION ON THIS EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE.
Thank you for the professional atmosphere, staff and a job well done. I am happy that my Angels guided me to y'all.
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.
Spotless, polished offices, upbeat and professional staff, thorough and informed visit.
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
The Hygienist cleaned my teeth better than they have ever been cleaned before. I was taken care of like royalty. They really pay special attention to the needs of their patients. I am happy I switched to this dental office. I really feel like they had my best interests in mind while I was there.
My visit wit Alex Planes, DDS was great. Dr. Alex is very professional and knowledgeable. He took time to explain the procedures and the expected results. The members of staff are also very knowledgeable and welcoming.
Excellent dentistry service with very professional staff!!
...What more can be said about the greatest Dental Arts in all of Florida.
I am very happy with my recent visit. I was seen immediately and everything was explained to me. I really like the email notification to remind me that I have an appointment. Overall I am very pleased with my experience.
I received great service, professional assistance and friendly office counseling. Thank you, thank you.
Outstanding! The latest technology, a very pleasant experience
I am very satisfied with the service I received. I was treated with decency and respect by the Receptionist, Dental Assistant and Doctor. An extremely high level of professionalism was demonstrated. I have already told my co-workers of my experience and would recommend Alex Planes, DDS to everyone.
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.
Thorough and professional yet caring.
Dr Planes and staff are very professional. They honestly take an interest in delivering quality and pleasant service.
I have been so pleased with my choice. Dr. Planes and his staff have been wonderful, kind and payient. So happy with my results so far.
I arrived 10 minutes early and was escorted to the exam room promptly. Staff members went out of their way to greet me cheerfully. My appointment today was with the Doctor and his assistant. The care was professional, considerate and painless. Excellent experience!
Very pleased with professional treatment, breakdown of plan of care, and results, compared to our previous experience with past dental offices.
You can go to the dentist and enjoy your visit. Dr. Planes and the entire staff do everything to make the visit as pleasant as possible, very informative as to the work that has to be done and all with friendliness and a good laugh or two!! Aside from all this, the work that is done is perfect and you never walk out of that office until you are completely satisfied.
Dr. Planes took time to listen to my concerns and comnents. He explained my issues in terms that I was able to understand. He conveys confidence that lets me know that I a will be receiving the best dental care available.
Works with insurance plan. Very important!
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.
My appointment with Dr. Planes & his staff was on time & efficient. I received the needed treatment in a timely manner and painlessly. Thank you Dr. Planes & staff.
All the staff are very friendly and caring. Dr Planes takes a personal approach toward his patient's needs.

Dr. Planes and staff make every appointment the most enjoyable dental visits I have ever had. Very gentle, trustworthy and always comforting.

I felt completely confident in his ability and conifident with his skills as a dentist.i would highly recommend him! The entire staff are beyond pleasant and it is truly a pleasure to go to the dentist!
Very efficient and pleasant experience!
All went well just a bit of a problem getting the temporary off. The good thing was it was on well enough to not fall off between the two appointments. I was certainly satisfied with the permanent caps, both fit and appearance..
Dr. Planes is extremely patient and kind. He and everyone make every effort to make you feel comfortable and calm - as well as being a wonderful Doctor!
Each visit has been very perfessional. I have been told what is going to be done each time, and I like that. Dr. Planes is a wonderful dentist, and gives it to you straight, like that too. All the staff has been able to handle my wacky spence of humor...that is a big plus. So glad I found a great company to take care of my dental needs??
My treatment was excellent . The professionalism displayed by Dr. Planes and his staff was, as always, beyond my high expectations.
Doctor Planes is an amazing dentist. He was recommended to me by a retired dentist. I am currently in an intensive treatment plan. His technique and effectiveness has made each surgery and post healing go smoothly. As well as being a magnificent dentist he is a great person and will go out of his way to give you the best experience possible. I highly recommend Doctor Planes above any other Dentist.
I drive over an hour just to see Dr Planes and his staff. His professionalism and honesty are only exceeded by his genuine interest in me. As a result he has established an environment based on these qualities as can easily be felt by his caring staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He, his facility and his staff are a refreshing change from the "franchise" dental shops popping up on every corner.
The entire staff was very pleasant, little wait time and the dentist and assistant worked efficiently as a team in prepping me for a crown.
Very professional and friendly!! I highly recommend
Professional and friendly, good appointment.
Very professional and excellent care. Great staff !
when I called to make my 1st appt, I could hear his smile right over the phone. His staff was out at lunch & he answered the phone. After several dentist telling me I needed deep cleaning & would not clean my teeth until that was done, I was feeling frustrated until I met dr planes. He is the best & so is his staff. My hygienist Lindsey is great & very gentle. I would recommend them to everyone! Thanks again for the great service. Debbie B

Good experience. Everyone is so nice. I will recommend you.
I am terrified of the dentist after a horrible experience somewhere else. I was very nervous and Dr Planes was very nice and he made sure I was ok the entire time and asked to stop multipule times to make me feel better. I will not go anywhere else anymore. Hands down best dentist I have ever been to. I plan on bringing my family and recommending him to everyone I know looking for a dentist.
Alex Planes is young with high tech skills. He is very, very nice and is compassionate. His staff is upbeat and I have not seen any turnover in his office. I recommend him all the time. I love Planes Dental... great office. I'm a very Happy Patient. Susan D.
