I have been coming to this office for over a year, and it is still a great stress free environment! Therehave been some upgrades, and as a patient you now have access to watch netflix during your cleaning instead of staring quietly at a light (which is what I remember doing when I was a kid at the dentist). And most importantly no matter what age you are you still get a sticker for a job well done! Great Place, great dentist, highly recommend.

I would never go back to see Dr. Hansford again! He was very cold and rough with my 9 year olddaughter. It was such a bad experience, I hope she isn’t scarred for life! She was in so much pain, he didn’t care to stop, or console her. He also never introduced himself to me or my daughter, just went straight to work. Horrible bed side manner!

Dr. John and the dental assistants were awesome! Not only were they super knowledgeable but they were friendly and worked so well with my little Emma who has hated visiting the dentist in the past. She loved her experience and Iwas happy to see how Informative they were with me as well.

I saw Dr. Hansford for my wisdom teeth. My initial consult was a breeze and I was quickly scheduled for a wisdom tooth extraction. Word of advice: GPD sends you the check-in forms via email prior to your appointment. I wasable to fill them out ahead of time and had a much easier check-in process at the office.

This was the third dentist I've been to since I moved to NY 2 years ago and the only one out of the three that I felt comfortable at. I'm usually pretty skeptical of dentists and feel like they're all ascam but didn't feel like that towards this one. The place was clean, the procedures I had done (cleaning and fillings) were done in a timely manner -no pain, and things were explained clearly. The only adjustment I would have like to have had is more rinsing throughout the procedures.

Dr. Hansford and the staff at his practice were all super friendly and accommodating. We were seen quickly and he was great with my young son (15 months). He and his assistant were obviously very knowledgeable but what stood out tome was that they were keen to share the science behind their dental practices in an understandable way to the patient.

This is the first time I took my 12 years old son to see Dr. Hansford. It was for Dental Cleaning; since my son has braces, Dr. Hansford was excellent at explaining what needs to be done other than brushing andflossing to keep the teeth clean. He also made my son feel at ease while he was checking for cavities and when he was cleaning his teeth. Excellent with children. After everything was completed, he spent the time to answer any question that you have, he did not rush you in anyway. Highly recommend Dr. Hansford. One last thing, the wait time was not long at all. We had a 5pm appointment and the Dentist seen us at our scheduled appointment time.

I’ve had this procedure done before with another doctor and my experience was terrible. But so far so amazing with Dr. Hansford. Barely any pain, little bleeding, and he even called on his private line to aak me how I’m doing a couple hours later.

Dr. John office took all of the stress out of going to the dentist away. Every member of the staff was attentive and kind. They clearly explained every step they were taking in plain English so I was aware of everythingthat was going on inside my mouth! I also saw a small child run up and give her dentist a hug before she left, which I do not recall doing when I was young..... Dr. John and his team really care about every patient that walks through the door and that is what I noticed most of all. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for great dental care. Sidenote: really solid sticker selection!

This business deserves more than 5 stars. I bring my two sons and young sisters to Dr.Handford’s office. He has been seeing them for a couple of years now and he has always exceeded my expectations. I drive for 50 minutesto go to his office because I am 100% sure that I will not find a better dentist near my home. The kids have visited other dentists in the past but they were nothing like Dr.Hansford. Also, my youngest son has had general anesthesia done for dental work in the past with Dr. John Hansford and Dr. Jody Jones which went very well! Both doctors are very friendly with all the kids and treat them well. Everytime I say we are going to the dentist now, they look forward to it. And I notice other kids that visit the office for dental work are also happy to be there. He also sees adult patients which is a plus. I would definitely recommend to any parent that needs an excellent dentist for their children!!!

We had a fantastic experience with Dr. Hansford and his team! We were running a few minutes late and they were extremely accommodating and walked us back as soon as we arrived. Dr. Hansford was very friendly and explained everything thoroughly.He was flexible and patient with my 3 year old and 15 month old during their first ever dental visit. The welcoming atmosphere seems to be rare for a doctor’s office and that pleasantly surprised me. I am confident we have found a great doctor for our sons!
