Dr. Watkins and his staff were very professional. From the moment I walked into office, everyone was friendly and welcoming. He was very kind, comforting and very informative. He explained options and took time for questions and concerns.

Andrea was very friendly, as was Dr. Mike. They were very helpful with recommending a mouthwash for me to use while breastfeeding my infant.

Excellent dentist! Works so well with children let's them know exactly why they are going to do without making it sound scary. He even gives cute little names for his tools and other stuff. I would highly recommend dr Watkins!

Was my first visit to this Dental office and I was very impressed with friendly staff and quality of care. I know what it's like to have dental issues and want to maintain good dental health. I believe Dr. Michael Watkins, his assistant Andrea and staff will provide the care that I need.

Dr. Watkins is amazing. I went in yesterday to have an old filling replaced and was in and out in 35 minutes with a "NO PAIN" experience. He is always on time when I have an appointment and does not run away to work on someone else while I am sitting there waiting like my previous dentist did. I am very glad I switched over to Dr. Watkins. He is a kind, concerned, gentle and caring person which also helps make him a great dentist. His office staff is always very friendly and helpful. Glad I switched!

Greetings: I was at the Jacksonville Dentist on May 2, 2017 to have 2 teeth repaired. Dr. Watkins did a very good and fast repair. Greetings again: I was scheduled on May 3, 2017 to have my teeth cleaned and Wendy Watkins completed my total cleaning very quickly and she said my teeth were very good and not dirty. She also did my cleaning in October, 2016.

The staff is courteous. I had to wait approximately 20 minutes until after my appointment time, which I normally don't have to do.

I do not do well with getting shots in the mouth. Dr. Mike is the best though, when I went in to get a filling fixed I had to get a shot and there was no pain what-so-ever associated with it. Awesome job Dr. Mike! Also thanks for getting me in so quickly to get the filling fixed.
