I can't really say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Cummings. First and foremost is a deep dedication, I would call it a drive, to deliver the result that the patient is looking for. Dr. Cummings has a labconnected to his office that does work only for him. In fact, what separates Dr. Cummings from most is that he is trained in making teeth and also contributes in the making of teeth for his patients. Without this knowledge it is much harder to create an outstanding result. In my visits with Dr. Cummings, we started with initial temporary teeth that were fitted in. I was able to give my feedback on these temps as to what I liked, or what I might like to try. I was always made to feel completely comfortable expressing my thoughts. Amazingly so. Because of his ability in the making of teeth, Dr. Cummings was able to make changes right in the chair, right at that moment. I don't know how he did it. He brought the teeth to a point that was just perfect, and then the permanent teeth were made and the result was exceptional. Could not be happier, or happier to smile. I would mention that Dr. Cummings was redoing a job that had been done about a month earlier with a different dentist and that I was so unhappy with. Dr. Cummings and his staff treated me so well, and his technical and 'artistic' work in creating and placing the teeth was exceptional. For me, it doesn't get much better, and it is easy to recommend Dr. Cummings' work, especially for difficult cases like mine.

I would highly recommend Dr Cummings - he and his assistant were well qualified and did a great job improving my smile. I was nervous but they quickly put my fears to rest - the procedure was virtually painless and givingme headphones to wear to block out the noise of the drill was a huge plus for me!

I feel very lucky to have connected with Dr. Cummings several years ago. He is clearly interested me as a person, not just as a patient. That is something that is very important to me! He is very creative in findingaffordable solutions to complex dental problems, and gentle in both bedside manner and in his handiwork. His staff is also outgoing, friendly, and warm, so that visiting his office is a treat even though generally one does not get excited about dentist appointments :-)

Dr Jeff does everything possible to accommodate his patients. He is very thorough about his job. His patience concerns is very important to him. My job is half way and I feel very confident already. Can't wait to see the finishedproduct. He is very gentle and upfront with his patients. He earned my trust since the first visit. I am doing a full mouth job. After two root canals and an extraction went home with no pain. I was in so much pain going in the office he took the time out to do extensive work that I am so happy with. NO MORE PAIN. Thank you Doctor Jeff.

Dr Cummings is a great dentist, very friendly and cares about his patients. Did a bridge and a cap for me and it looks great. As someone who avoids dentists and hates getting anything done, he made the process very easy and as painless as possible.
