Love this practice! Warm welcoming, highly professional and patient, very knowledgeable doctor. I sit in the big chair without fear for first time, and rest assured that will leave with a high quality job well done. I have referred all my friends and family there, they are all happy. Five stars and thumbs up!
I had an emergency and I was on a long trip for work. She got me in the same day for two crowns and stayed late (as did her staff) just for me. The whole staff was incredible and if I lived in the area I would go back forever.
Awesome great Dentistry Doctor. Very friendly and honestly, she explained about my teeth problem abd what it need. Also very considerate with the cost of any treatment need.

I would have to say that she really makes you feel welcome. She really knows how to make you feel comfortable with your teeth. Dr. Maria gave me pointers of how to better take care of my teeth with easily received criticism. The staff is also great. I promise you will not be disappointed.
She was very friendly and thorough in her explanations. Highly professional and also very funny. I have dental insurance, but her self-pay prices are astonishingly affordable if anyone is in that situation. Very great service all around.

Dr. Maria Lauzan-Madruga was AWESOME!!! I finally found a dentist that I can continue to go to..she made me feel very comfortable and made the visit so much less scary..

Maria was personable, genuine, and professional.
She is wonderful!!!
the dra, Maria is great
I had to visit Dr. Maria's office without an appointment because I was experiencing some serious pain. Despite the fact that Dr. Maria had several patients she was able to fit me in within 15-20 minutes and give me exceptional care! I would recommend her services to anyone.
The empathy and warmth of Dr. Maria and her staff are UNPARALLELED. highly recommended. La simpatía y calor humano de la Doctora Maria y su equipo no tienen paralelo. Altamente recomendada.
She is an incredible dr. Kind, knowledgeable and patient. Keep up the good work.
Dr. Maria is the greatest! Go Gators!
I really liked her and everything was well done. I'm am definitely keeping her as my dentist.
Great best dr ..
Dr. Maria is a a great Doctor and human being. She treats you (and makes you feel) like family. She is very knowledgeable and trust me, you better follow her instructions or you will regret it, because I didn't and my condition worsened and I lost my tooth. So she might sound pricey but all her recommendations are for your own good and not to get money out of you. By the way, she will see you at the indicated time OR EARLIER, never later, and that is awesome. I just wish it was cheaper but that's me.
Dr. Maria was awesome! She was very professional, knowledgeable, personable and has a very unique disposition. My visit was awesome!
Dr. Maria is possibly the most caring dentist I had ever seen. She is well aware of what she can and cannot do with you and will work with you to meet your goals. A dentist with a big, big heart.
Kind, very professional, works in patients best intrest and was very informative.
Excelente person, very professional

She offered a warm and pleasing atmosphere...She made you feel at home and treated you like a family member and made you feel right at home...along with her bubblie way of being the process was very pleasing and never felt any discomfort...would i recommend her??? i already did...she's the best and will continue to use her
The visit was great she was very nice
Very personable. Happy with my visit.
Very Very Very entertaining, pleasurable to be around, and above all made the visit comfortable. Straight to the point attitude with a touch of education left me feeling I knew what was going on and understood it. Will be returning for sure.
I've always had bad luck with dentists and I had low expectations for this one. Boy I was wrong! She helped me with kindness and a smile. She answered all of my questions and was down to Earth. She cared about me as a person and I didn't feel like I was being scammed or her just trying to take my money. Very clean office and great hours too.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :) A++++
She's very entertaining, and to the point! Enjoyed the visit.
She was great, informative and made it a point to make me relax since I am terrified of the Dentist. Even my boyfriend is thinking about going to her now. highly recommend.
Everything about my visit with Dr. Maria Lauzan-Madruga was great. When I came I had to fill out a few things I had missed from the online check-in which took no more than 5 minutes. I went straight in about 2 minutes later. My x-rays were then completed by a dental assistant. Once my x-rays were finished I saw the doctor who explained everything to me and gave me a treatment plan. She explained what my insurance would cover and what it would not and invited me to call if I had any other questions. :)
Glad that I could request an appointment using ZocDoc. I was called to confirm the appointment the next morning and I was very satisfied with the treatment and explanation of my insurance plan benefits. The office and doctor have a lot of positive feedback online (search for east colonial dental and read the reviews in demandforce link).
