Words from Dr. Woolard
My purpose in life is to be useful and compassionate and make a difference. Making a difference makes me happy and being a dentist helps me achieve that. I love what I do, helping people brings me joy, and Dentistry is my passion. My purpose and ambition go hand-in-hand in the pursuit of happiness.

“I love what I do, and love who I do it with”.

Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

Building Relationships Builds Patients Trust
Relationship building has always been important to my practice. I have found ways to make sure my patients are very comfortable and very happy with my office and the procedures that I perform.

In my practice, my patients value personal attention and the ability to trust me and my staff. I perform most procedures myself and I tell this to new patients up front. My office schedules appointments in such a way that I can spend ample time with each patient and on each procedure.

I also place great emphasis on explaining to patients what I recommend for them and why. I take my time educating my patients and answering their questions. Taking the extra time to educate the patient and answer any questions makes a strong, positive impression and builds a good relationship between us. Spending time on explanations also helps my patients understand my rationale for recommending procedures. I explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option I give them. This way, patients understand that my recommendations are not based on how much money I might make, or any other self-serving reasons, but on what is in each patient’s best interest.

Another aspect of building trust is to help patients feel comfortable. Explaining procedures in advance helps patients feel less anxious, which increases the patient’s comfort level and makes them more relaxed. I also look for ways to minimize any tissue trauma that may result from a procedure to help make the patient’s experience more positive. For example, to anesthetize, I only use the skinniest needles (30-gauge) and introduce the anesthetic solution in stages, not all in one shot. A little gentle touch makes a big difference in a patient’s experience. I offer pillows for the extra comfort of patients who suffer neck or back pain and blankets are also available when needed. Most of all, I have a centralized sound system that plays soothing music for comfort and relaxation.

My practice focuses on good service instead of growth for its own sake, which also merits consideration. Building trusting relationships with my patients pays off personally as well as professionally for me and my patients. We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.

      I Trust Them With My Teeth
      I’ve been coming here for years, and I’ve always had a great experience. Everyone’s professional and nice, they know me by name when I come through the door, and they make sure my teeth are clean without trying to up-sell me on services or giving me the run-around. I trust everyone in this office to identify any dental problems I may have and offer the best solutions. There’s nobody I’d rather look after my teeth than the staff at Dr. Woolard’s.

      Best care in the SCV
      Dr. Woolard is by far hands down the best Dentist I have been to. She and her staff are caring, friendly, personable, professional, and understand what the patient needs are. Their new hygienist Kevin is outstanding in his job he communicates well with his patient and when you meet him, you will feel at ease. All of the staff really want to help you with your dental needs and they listen which is important to communicate effectively. I will never go to another dental office because I know Dr. Woolard and the care she always shows me. If you really want a dentist that makes you feel like family and not just another patient do give Dr. Woolard and her staff a try you won’t regret your decision.

      Best Dentist in SCV
      Best dentist in SCV and wonderful staff! Dr. Woolard has been my dentist for over a decade and I have not been disappointed. I have major work done in my mouth (veneer, bridge, filling) and she has helped bring back my beautiful smile! She made me forget the bad experiences I had with the other dentist. She is very professional, friendly, so likable and will guide you through the entire procedure, with Dr. Woolard you’re in good hands!

      We Love Dr. Woolard & Her Girls
      We have been going to Dr. Woolard since my kids were itty bits (all 3 are in their early 20’s now). She has seen them through braces, tackled every possible mouth issue from cavities to crowns with precision, and has kept us up on the newest and best way to achieve proper oral hygiene… and it’s working! Did I mention she’s adorable? She has a calming, sweet way about her (you can even hear her humming while she works). Her office is clean, professional, and her office girls are the kindest. They have jumped through hoops to work around my busy schedule… thanks, Diane! We don’t love going to the dentist because it’s the dentist, but we love Dr. Woolard and her girls.

      Attentive to Your Needs
      Finding a dentist that you will feel comfortable with is hard. There is always something that can make you hesitant to go back. We’ve been to several dentists and Dr. Woolard is the best we’ve had. You won’t be scared to go back. They are very friendly and attentive to your needs. Always on time, honest, and very professional.

      I Definitely Recommend Dr. Woolard
      I was a new patient with a lot of work needing to be done and the whole office was super helpful. From the doctor herself to the nurses. They put a payment plan together and was patient in helping me get as much work as I could do with the yearly allowance from the insurance. I’m very grateful for all the help they are continuing to give me. I definitely recommend Dr. Woolard to anyone looking for a dentist.

      Always Willing to Help
      I have been going to Dr. Woolard since I was a teenager. I’m 38 now and even though I live an hour away this is the only place I will come to get my cleanings and anything else I need for my teeth! The staff is wonderful, patient, always willing to help. Dr. Woolard sings and hums when she is working on you and so you are automatically relaxed even if you’re in the middle of a filling! I love this dental office.

      Took the Time to Educate Me About My Teeth
      I started seeing Dr. Woolard and her staff earlier this month and I have seen a huge improvement in my dental hygiene. Dr. Woolard took the time to educate me about my teeth in terms that I could understand. I can see an immediate difference and now I’m addicted to flossing! On top of it all, the staff is so friendly and welcoming that I actually don’t mind going to the dentist! Thanks Dr. Woolard!

      I Could Not Be Happier
      We have Delta Dental HMO and it’s an understatement to say that the list of dentists to choose from is very disappointing. Lots of dental groups come up and there seem to be a high number of let’s just say similar-sounding positive reviews. However, mixed into these reviews are often horrible statements by dissatisfied clients. I wasn’t going to fall for this. I wanted a genuine standalone dentist, not a Dental Group. I asked around and someone recommended Dr. Woolard. I was shocked she even took this insurance but she does. So I made my first appointment. Dental insurance often pays very little and dentists are often quick to recommend procedures that may not be necessary or aren’t covered by insurance. I have spent countless hours in dental offices and I can recognize a sales pitch a mile away. I’m always skeptical. Thankfully, I did not get this Vibe with Dr. Woolard. She is just a no-nonsense dentist. She did some work on my teeth and I liked her style. For the first time in a long time, I felt comfortable dealing with the dentist.

      I was so happy that I decided to have her do crowns on all my front teeth. I have been putting this off for some time and knew I needed this. I wanted to find the right dentist to do this since this would involve significant out-of-pocket expenses. Dr. Woolard does not use one of these in house machines to create crowns. I have been told by someone on the inside that it is better to have a crown made in a lab with a multimillion-dollar machine instead of a crown made in an office with a $100,000 machine. I asked and they use Glidewell labs for their crowns. I checked with my contact and was told that they are an excellent lab and well respected.

      Long story short, I had her do my crowns. I could not be happier with the fit and appearance. I could tell she took great care when putting them in and adjusted them to make sure that they were perfect. I told her that they were fine and she insisted on continuing to work on them until they were perfect by her standards. On top of all this, the staff is excellent. I live a very busy life and don’t have time to deal with nonsense like teeth cleanings. So I appreciate that the staff calls me to remind me. When I tell them that I am extremely busy and try me in a couple of weeks, they actually call me and remind me. I need a dentist like this. I was so happy that my wife started going there and I started taking my kids there as well. I then discovered that several friends of mine are also long-time customers of hers. I feel like I have found a Hidden Gem.

      Just a note, her office is nothing fancy. Sure I miss going to the fancy dentist in Beverly Hills with the water feature in the lobby. But then again, I guess I was paying for that with all the extras that they always seem to be selling me. On another note, she may have saved my life. They actually took my blood pressure and she told me that my blood pressure was high. Specifically she spelled it out in a language that I would understand. She told me that I needed to go to my doctor immediately upon leaving her office. I actually trusted her and did so. My doctor was alarmed and now I’m on medication to correct a high blood pressure issue. Doctor Woolard genuinely seemed to care and urged me to not play around with this. I could not be happier.

      I Have Always Been Impressed
      My husband and I have been coming to Dr. Woolard as our dentist since 2003 (and before having our 3 children!) I have always been impressed with her professionalism, as well as the friendship that we have built over the years. Our 3 kids have never seen another dentist, and since Dr. Woolard does braces too, 2 of the 3 kids have braces with her now!

      One year, our dental insurance changed and I had to see another dentist. (I am an every 6-month person) That dentist told me that I had a cavity and it could possibly turn into a root canal! I was floored! I called Dr. Woolard’s office after leaving my appointment and she had me come right in… I did NOT have a cavity! That was 11 years ago. Needless to say, our dental insurance was changed that month, and hence the reason I won’t take my kids to another dentist. She’s honest, reliable, and trustworthy. I’ve purposely chosen dental coverage based on if she’s a provider! You won’t be disappointed!! 5 stars all the way!

      Overall Service is Exceptional
      My family of five, along with our parents, have been satisfied patients of Dr. Woolard’s office for almost 15 years. The office and exam areas offer a quaint setting and are always clean and welcoming. Parking and access to the office are easy. Most importantly, the level of care, attention and overall service is exceptional. The personal touch we receive here when compared to what is offered by larger dental groups is far and away from the biggest satisfier. Keep up the great work!

      Expert Dental Care
      My 3 children and I have gone to Dr. Woolard for the past 15 years. She is very professional but also friendly and personable. We keep going back twice a year, not only for her expert dental care, but her staff is equally as professional and friendly. There has never been issues with any procedures. All dental work and related billing is explained up front and insurance is always checked ahead of time. They are a well run office and Dr. Woolard and her staff are wonderful!

      She’s the Best
      When my son was 1 yr old, with only 4 teeth, he had an accident that knocked out one of those precious new teeth. We were new to the area and I was desperate to find someone to help me. Dr. Woolard was the only dentist who returned my call and she has been taking care of us ever since. I would never consider going anywhere else. She has a super team and cares for each of us (5) as if we were part of her family. She’s the best.

      Dr. Woolard is Very Gentle
      I have been a patient of Dr. Woolard for 20 years. The office staff is all friendly, efficient and professional. All treatment costs are disclosed before any work is done so there are never any surprises. The overall vibe of the office is low stress and relaxed. Dr. Woolard is very gentle and explains treatment options clearly. She’s easy to talk to and very open to answering any questions you might have. I recently had some fairly extensive dental work done and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

      Very Warm & Friendly
      My husband and I have had a very good experience at Dr Woolard’s dental office. I came here for a second opinion on a root canal recommendation, so glad I did! Did not need a root canal at all, just needed more precise adjustment on a recent crown. Her entire office staff is very warm and friendly, and I can’t say enough about her dental hygienist, she does a very thorough job and gave me some tips that I had never been told about dental care. Laura and Dr W. were also very sweet and patient with my 89 year old Mother who has Alzheimers and hadn’t been to the dentist in 2 years! As far as doing unneeded work mentioned in another review, I call BS on that! My previous dentist had several things on my treatment plan that Dr Woolard did not agree with, she takes a more conservative approach which I appreciate, who doesn’t want to preserve their natural teeth as long as possible! She had also found 2 large cavities on my Mom’s back teeth and suggested we just wait since they were not causing her any pain or effecting her eating habits, she was very sweet and sensitive to my Mom’s condition and did not want to needlessly cause her any stress. Overall very good experience, and she also has an in-house dental insurance plan that was competitive with my Deltacare and even better on some procedure prices.

      Always Made Sure Things Are Perfect
      She is amazing. I have seen her for 10 years and she has always done an amazing job at fixing my teeth. Fillings, many crowns, root canal, fixing a chipped front tooth. Everything is done really well, never rushed anything, always made sure things are perfect. She has such a calm and relaxing personality which really helps me. All her crowns have been perfect so far. After having been to many dentists she is by far my favorite.
