Got a diagnosis and financing options right away. I asked for the procedure to be done right away as well and the doctor and staff made it happen. A beautiful office as well.

The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. However, I would have appreciated if the Dr. Whitaker took the time to thoroughly explain what treatments he recommend me to have himself. Again, the dental assistant was quite polite, but had some difficulty articulating how the treatments would be completed etc (despite me asking for the doctor to return on several occasions). As a result, I left the office with my questions unanswered and more anxiety about what I needed to get done. After further consideration I decided it best to seek out another dentist.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ward Whitaker to anyone looking for any kind of dental care. I called last minute after finding his office for a bad wisdom tooth that needed to be treated right away, not only did he fix my issue he did it that very same day. Great staff and very friendly and caring.

I typically hate going to the dentist. However this dentist visit was like no other. His dential hygienist explained everything to where I can understand what needed to be done. Then the dentist himself was very friendly and made sure I understood the importance of what needed to be taken care of and what the rates would be. I'll say job well done.

Doctor was fine but office staff was inefficient, failed to use proper means of communication (texting vs calling as marked on the zocdoc sheet) and made excuses for the delays. Wont be going back to these guys

Office staff (front desk and dentist's assistant) were helpful and friendly which is just as important as the doctor himself. Dr. Whitaker introduced himself when he walked in and was very personable. I felt like I was given great care!

I'm from out of town and desperately needed my wisdom teeth taken out. Within 2 hours of finding this place I was already in a chair waiting for them to prep the tools. I'm amazed at how quickly they got my insurance through and got me the treatment I needed. I'm definitely making these guys my go to dentist here in Tampa.

I had such a great experience at Dr. Whitaker's office! I was very nervous because I had not been to a dentist in a number of years but the staff was all very kind, even staying late to see me! Plus, everyone was so positive and friendly. It was truly a great experience.

I've seen the same doctor since I was 6 years old (now 23). Once I moved to a different state I really didn't know if I would feel comfortable anywhere else. I had my first visit at Dr. Whitakers yesterday and I believe I've found my new dentist. Thanks doc ??
