Coming from Chicago, you are automatically use to certain standards. Melissa my hygienist, met those standards every step of the way. When she wasn't positive about some advice, etc. she brought in Beth another qualified professional to confirm what I was already told, that I was a lost cause --->> I'm kidding (-_-). Melissa reminds me of Lake Michigan in Chicago. The tone of her voice is like listening to the waves @ the beach, while she attends to my oral needs. I should be paying her directly, it's like therapy. (-_-) I met with Dr. Bower on my last couple of visits. He has a long and successful career ahead of him regardless of whatever he's doing. Last, I usually feel very uplifted when I leave the clinic, naturally I pay it forward. (-_-) Julian (-_-)

My husband and I are new to Asheville and, as always, when you move you have to look for a new dentist. By chance my husband was looking for Groupon deals for golf and found a deal with Asheville Smile Center. The deal sounded really good so my husband called to make an appointment for the both of us. From the moment we talked to Hunter on the phone we sensed we had found our new dental facility. When we showed up for our appointment, both the ladies at the front desk along with Hunter, the hygienist Casey (sp?) to the dentist Dr. Bower, their friendliness and professionalism have been above and beyond what we could have hoped for. We are so thrilled and absolutely love the place.

Some of the SWEETEST people I've ever met work here. I was super worried about going in because it had been a LONG time since I had a dentist appointment. They were super non-judgemental and friendly and gave me great advice. Would definitely recommend coming here if you haven't already.

I really love this dental office!!! And I would know from working in dentistry for 20 years/ this place is awesome. They remind me of an office in Florida where I really wanted to work but no one ever quit!!!! They are super friendly. Very knowledgeable and take their time with you - not just bring you in and shove you out. And of course there’s the cookies!!!! I wish I would have found them sooner????

Love the staff and Dr Port too. Eased my nerves and reservations. I'm feeling great about finally having a long term relationship with a dentist and a clear plan going forward. ....... Updated: I've now been with Dr. Port for over a year and feel so thankful that so much progress has been made towards my dental health. I truly appreciate the entire team at Asheville Smile Center because they aren't rushed, take time to ensure you understand the plan moving forward, assist with insurance and payments, and make the whole experience enjoyable!

I've been going to the Asheville Smile Center for about 6 years now, and my experience there has been great. My hygienist, Beth, is the absolute best. She's warm and funny, and puts me at ease. The dentists are knowledgeable and friendly, and not at all pushy. One of the things I appreciate most is if they're running a little behind, they'll call and give a heads up so I can stay at work longer or run an errand and not just sit and wait. If only every doctor's office would do that!

Dr. Port and the entire staff are very compassionate, caring and understanding. He takes the time to treat you as if you were his only patient and explains everything in great detail. I won't ever use another dentist. I highly recommend them if you are looking for top notch care and a truly relaxing, state of the art facility with many added amenities ( Massage chair, aromatherapy, beautiful scenery to watch and even fresh cookies and drinks). The office is immaculate and makes you at ease when you walk in the door. Thank you Dr. Port and the entire staff for being so professional and treating patients with the upmost respect :)

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences at the Smile Center, and have to credit the kind, supportive staff for encouraging me to work towards better dental health. The two hygienists who have worked directly with me, Beth and Cassie, are incredibly personable and knowledgeable; they always do the little things that show an effort above and beyond the norm. The office itself is professional and classy, but still has a welcoming and relaxed vibe. I’ve also enjoyed the appointment reminders and heads up on last minute openings—very helpful with a busy schedule. Great spot, great company, and an incredible staff that will improve your smile in more ways than one.

This place is amazing! Dr. Garretson and his assistant Chastity make you feel so calm and comfortable You can tell that the dentist and hygienist actually enjoy their job's and all get along very are well. My husband and I both have a fear of going to dentist and this place makes it so easy! I have switched dentist 3 times due to them always making me feel bad for my cavities and pressuring me to do more then I could afford at once. This place does not pressure you to do anything you don't want to and does not make you feel judged. I have a lot of cavities and since I have a fear of dentist I always put off going. These dentist and hygienist are so considerate. Dr. Garretson listened to my concerns and each time he did a filling he would make sure I was okay to continue even said "we can take this one at a time, no pressure to do anymore then that" most dentist push you into doing more just to get more money. On my second visit I had to have an extraction done and the dentist made it the most pain free thing. I am so pleased with this dental office. You will not be disappointed! Plus you get fresh made cookies when you checkout :)

The staff is very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Port was very gentle and explained my procedure in detail so I knew what to expect. Between the massage chair and the aroma therapy, I almost felt I was at the spa!

I always feel so welcome when I walk through the doors of Asheville Smile Center. The staff is professional and warm. I rarely have to wait to go back. My dental hygienist, Beth, takes the time to get to know me, asking me questions about my family and work. She has become a good friend. The professionalism that is demonstrated by each staff member each time I go is truly unique. It is always a good experience.
