"The staff have exceeded my expectations, the service is prompt, fully explained and given with a "smile". I would highly recommend Dr. Gay and his staff."
Karen B., 2013
"Dr. Gay and his staff are the best dental providers I've ever used.
I've been going to Dr. Gay and his staff for many years. They are always polite, prompt and helpful. Their care is superb. I particularly like that Dr. Gay calls after any procedure and that they all get to know their patients as friends and people, not just patients. I have recommended them to others and will continue to do so."
Patricia D., 2013
"Best dental office ever! I had a horrible experience with dentists in my childhood so I avoided them for years as an adult. Then I found Dr. Gay through a reference from a friend. I go every 6 months now. Great great staff from front desk to hygienists to assistants to dentist." 
Merisha H., 2013
"Exceptional service recommending Dr.Gay to all family members."
Kenneth R., 2013
"Dr. Gay & staff gave me another great check-up today. Everyone is friendly, professional & fast (today I was a little early and got in before my appointment time!). Always great to see them--and that's why I have been going to Dr. Gay for over 20 years!"
Anonymous, 2013
"It's always amazing that Dr. Gay and his staff not only provide top-notch treatment, but also that this has to be the most efficiently scheduled professional office I've ever dealt with. I arrive 3 minutes before my scheduled appointment time, and within 5 minutes I'm in the chair for my exam and cleaning. And out the door in just over 1/2 hr!"
Matthew V., 2013
“Dr. Gay and his staff made me feel comfortable immediately and despite not seeing a dentist for five years. They did not shame me, but instead told me what I needed to do. I had quite a bit of work done, which was done well. Dr. Gay even called to check on me each time. I was impressed.” 
Erin Z., 2012
“The staff at Dr. Gay’s office is so friendly, it made going to the dentist in downtown Cincinnati feel like a ‘small town where everyone knows your name’ experience. The staff has been so prompt that instead of waiting in the lobby, I was taken early for both of my appointments. When I had a filling, Dr. Gay explained exactly what was happening in addition to showing me before and after photos. I love the text and email reminders, too! This place is fantastic.”
Judith D., 2012
“On my recent first-time visit to the practice, I found Kim and Dr. Gay to be very gentle and considerate in their work, for which I am most grateful and appreciative.”
Ann S., 2012
“Great job as usual. It is always personal and friendly service that makes it seem like a visit instead of a doctor’s appointment.” 
John C., 2012
“You cannot ask for a dentist and his staff to do a better job of caring for your teeth. After years of cavities and lots of silver fillings, I became a patient of Dr. Gay. Doing right things over a period of time, he put my teeth in a condition where cavities were rare and have been non-existent for the past six to eight years. One problem was excessive tarter build up between visits. We cured this by increasing my number of visits per year and along with the tarter problem going away, so did the cavities. I like being treated as an individual, not just another patient. That is Dr. Gay’s and his staff’s style.”
Sara C., 2012
“I’ve only been a patient for a short time, but I have to say, I’m very impressed with Dr. Gay. No long waiting, financing is available, and his thorough assessment and explanation is wonderful. Finally, a dentist who makes me want to go back and address my dental treatment needs.”  
Anna H., 2012
“I haven’t been to a dentist for a long time because I hadn’t had luck finding one I liked and felt I could trust. Dr. Gay and his entire staff are just great. Professional, friendly, top notch. I highly recommend the entire team!”  
Demetria W., 2012
“I have been a patient of Dr. Gay for many years. He and his staff are kind and compassionate, and he is the most awesome cosmetic surgeon I know. After a surgical procedure, he always follows up at home to see how I’m doing. My husband and I consider him a true member of our family! 
Kelly J., 2011
“Dr. Gay, Rhonda and staff are simply the best. I called the office last Wednesday in the afternoon in a panic because one of my front teeth cracked and it looked and felt terrible. I called another office before I tried Dr. Gay and received no help at all. I spoke with Rhonda, who was extremely polite and helpful, over the phone. She got me in the very next day and Dr. Gay personally found a dentist to do an emergency root canal for me. Dr. Gay hand-delivered my paperwork that evening, and called me at home to tell me he had done so and to see how I was doing. The dentist I was referred to, Dr. Stiegel, was top notch. The root canal was pain free. I returned to Dr. Gay the next day for a filling, which was superbly done. I have never experienced such care and professionalism from a doctor in my life. Dr. Gay is the best in Cincinnati, hands down! If you’re looking for a dentist, look no further. Believe the reviews; they are all true.”
Amy F. 2011
“I love Dr. Gay and all the people who work at this dentist office. I went years without taking care of my teeth and once I met this team, my fears have been overcome and I regularly take care of my teeth without fear. If you have ever had anxiety about the dentist, please see Dr. Gay; he will change your life and perception of dentistry!” 
Daniel K., 2011
“I recommend Dr. Gay to everyone. A really great experience in a fantastic office. Every dentist tells you what you should do, but Dr. Gay actually explains why. This is what modern dentistry should be like.” 
Tamara A., 2011
“I have been a patient for 21 years now. I have always had excellent customer service. Dr. Gay is attentive, kind, and thorough. His hygienist and the entire staff are professional and excellent at what they do. It’s worth the 30-minute commute!” 
Frieda H., 2010
“Dr. Gay and staff are always cheerful and friendly. They do an excellent job of making patients comfortable, and explaining what they think needs to be done and why. They’re always willing to listen to the patient and consider the needs of the patient. Kim is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever been to. She does a thorough job yet has a gentle approach.”
Kelly C., 2010
“I was amazed that Dr. Gay actually sat down with me and discussed my dental history and expectations. Dr. Gay, along with his assistant, Brandy, also took the time to thoroughly explain the causes and resolutions for my dental issues. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and helpful and I am so glad I found them! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
Michael C., 2010
“A great finish this visit. The dental implant is perfect and the crown is wonderful! Thanks so much for your help with my ‘dental crisis’. I will continue to make the four-hour (each way) trip. It is worth it to get the best!”
Patricia T., 2010
“From the moment I enter the office until I leave I feel welcome and valued as a customer and friend. The office is beautiful and clean.  Rhonda and Kim keep me laughing and relaxed. Dr. Gay is genuine and sincere. This is his passion and it shows. Thanks for all you do. I tell all my friends about you.” 
Carol W., 2010
“Dr. Gay has been my dentist for over 25 years. I would not go anywhere else.  He always provides excellent information about every dental ‘fix’ he performs, and the quality of his work is top-notch. He is extremely sensitive to keeping his patients pain-free. He and all of his office staff are very pleasant. I can honestly say that I look forward to my dental appointments!”
