I can’t recommend enough!
Dr Kathy Woods is the best dentist that I’ve ever visited. Not only did she put a plan together for my teeth which were in poor condition, there was absolutely no judgement on how bad they were and she had encouraging demeanor on that it was going to be ok and that I would get my smile back. I can’t recommend Dr. Woods enough!

I had a great experience with Woods Dental clinic. Dr Woods had my best interest in mind and her staff was super friendly and went above and beyond. I’m going to tell everyone about them. I absolutely love this place!

Friendly staff, very helpful.
Over the years my dentist has helped me overcome my fear of going to the dentist and fear of the pain. He is very patient, calming, takes time to explain things so I can understand them and has a sense of humor which helps me. I like my hygienist and the rest of my support staff.
I brought in both of my children (6 and 4), the staff was so friendly, patient, and accommodating!! They were in different rooms to which I floated back and forth to. Each time I went to check on them they were happy and doing what was asked. My kids talked about how much they loved their hygienists.
Keep up the great work!
Thank you so much for your wonderful and professional dental care. My last dentist retired and I was nervous about selecting my future dental care professionals. After selecting Dental Clinic, I feel compelled to send you a note to let you know how great my experience was.
Professional and friendly!
I’ve been going to Dental Clinic for years and have always had top-notch care. My hygienist does a great job cleaning my teeth and my dentist is friendly and listens to any concerns I have. My teeth always feel spotless when I leave. Great experience. Friendly and attentive staff.
Why Choose Us
Let Us Help You
Pediatric dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood. Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. We know how to examine and treat children.
Oral surgery deals with the treatment and ongoing management of irregularities and pathology of the jaw and mouth that require surgical intervention.Surgically removing teeth is the most common procedure that oral surgeons perform, but oral surgery as a specialty has a broad scope. This includes managing hard and soft tissue pathology, oral infections, dentoalveolar trauma and oro-facial pain.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth of the face, the development of teeth and jaws and the correction and prevention of abnormalities. Orthodontics has a strong hospital-based consultant service which concentrates on treating the more severe abnormalities. That said, orthodontic specialty practice in the high street is well-developed and expanding with opportunities for NHS.
