My husband and I found First Choice Dental Care about 2 years ago when we moved to Georgia. We love all the staff there and how easy it is to get in for an appointment and there is NEVER any wait time once you are there!

Love this place. Very professional, but pleasurable. I really understand why the name of their place is 1st Choice. It should be yours.

Me and my 4 year old come here 2 and I can't say how awesome this place is. They made my son feel comfortable from the 1st time he was there, when he was 3 years old. He is always happy to see them. And Dawn is the best. I love that woman.

Not a fan of going to the dentist, however, the staff and Dr. Vaughn made sure that I was informed and treated with extra special care. A very nice office! I believe that I have found a dentist that I really like!
