What Parents are Saying About Us

4.8 Google rating on over 150 reviews

Southwoods consistently exceeds my expectations. They are kind and courteous, and always help my children develop better habit with brushing and flossing. They take thier time, and the quality of the service really comes through with each visit. I have now been using Southwoods for over a year, and won't be moving to another pediatric dentist anytime soon. These guys are awesome, thier facilities are clean, and organized and most importantly everything is kid friendly.

We’ve had 2 visits at this office for my 2 year old. Both visits have been during the pandemic. This office is so clean and I’ve never had to share a waiting room with anyone. Wait times have been less than 10 minutes. Dr. Gallo is so wonderful. Their expertise and professionalism is outstanding. Everyone that works in the office is friendly and great with kids.

Ashley C.
Dr. Gallo and her staff are amazing. I have a special needs son who was afraid of the dentist. They were great with him and my daughter. She made them feel comfortable and relaxed while she quickly did what she needed to. I recommend them highly.

Jamisen R.
New to the area I was looking for a pediatric dentist and received a recommendation from my neighbor to go see Dr Gallo and I’m so glad I did! Dr Gallo was amazing with my little girl. She made her feel comfortable and being a parent with everything going on with Covid the office was spotless, has new air filters and plexiglass shields up needless today I was at ease myself.

Gina C.
We had an urgent situation with our 2-year-old. They squeezed us in same-day and they were simply wonderful with her! They put on her favorite show to watch during the exam and gave her lots of little prizes for being good. Highly recommend!

Kristine P.
The staff and hygienists are AMAZING!! They really know how to work with kids and make them feel safe and secure. My daughter was very happy to have her appointment and everything was explained to her with each and every step. Dr. Gallo was also just as amazing and kind. She took the time to explain things to us, as well as our daughter and just had a sweet, kind demeanor that made you feel welcomed and listened to.
