The staff is very warm and friendly. Dr. Wooddell is gentle with those of use who are a bit anxious!

I just started seeing Dr. Wooddell recently, after my family and I decided to leave our old dentist. When I went to my first cleaning, I received one of the most through cleanings I have ever had. During the cleaning it was revealed I had a small cavity. I figured getting the filling would be a big ordeal, and that I would probably have to come back another time. But, instead I was able to have the filling done right then, immediately following my appointment. To my surprise, the filling was completed only twenty minutes after the discovery of the cavity. It was shocking how simple and painless it was. Dr. Wooddell and his staff are incredibly skilled at what they do, as well as being very friendly towards his patients. I don't think I'll be going anywhere else for dentistry anytime soon.

As a student at the College of William and Mary, I was warned that the abrupt lifestyle change of living there might lead to some unfortunate physiological changes such as the dreaded Freshman 15. The one thing that I was not counting on was for my bizarre schedule to seriously affect my oral hygiene habits, but two years in and that's exactly what happened. So there I was, with a bunch of cavities and only a few weeks left in the summer until I had to head back to school. Luckily for me, Dr. Wooddell came to the rescue at short notice to fix me up before I went once more unto the breach. My situation was avoidable and a little embarrassing, but the doctor and his staff were incredibly friendly and understanding. I can highly recommend his practice to anyone, especially patients with sensitive teeth and pride like myself who appreciate a gentler approach.

For a seasoned former dental assistant and for a scaredy cat, we absolutely love Dr. Wooddell and his staff. As a former dental assistant, I am very particular about choosing a dentist. In fact, I would drive all the way to New York for any work. It wasn’t until Dr. Wooddell that I stopped traveling 4 hrs and started traveling 30 minutes. He’s great! As for the the scaredy cat, Dr. Woodell’s practice was the first scare and pain free visit ever. We have recommended Dr. Wooddell to many people and will continue to do so.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wooddell's for 7 years. From routine cleanings to sealants and fillings, I have always felt comfortable and secure in knowing my teeth were given top quality care. The entire staff in friendly and personable, which makes the overall environment pleasant and inviting. I enjoy my 6 month checkups knowing my teeth are in the best hands!

I've been a patient in this practice for almost 20 years. Beyond the technical expertise of Dr. Wooddell and his staff (the "two Kims" are awesome), he is a terrific explainer who is all about making you comfortable = his calm and reassuring bedside manner goes a long way. In my past experience, his office is reasonably easy to schedule for emergency/unplanned procedures as well. Recommended!

Dr. Wooddell has been taking care of my pearly whites for the last decade now. I became a patient when I previously worked down the hall and I haven't regretted it since. Yes word of mouth (all puns intended here) is very important when it comes to finding a dentist and I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. W & team! Invisalign was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made during my dental history and I am beyond pleased with the outcome. Dr. W, Kim, Teresa and Kim (yes there's 2) are the epitome of excellence in this field! Love them so much!

I've been a patient of Dr Wooddell's for 20 years, and I've never been disappointed in the care I've received. Dr. Wooddell takes the time to explain every procedure during each dental visit. The office is professional and personable. It's easy to get appointments and there is little to no wait time. Dr. Wooddell is an excellent dentist.

I have been a patient of Doug Wooddell's for over 30 years and he is the BEST! As I have honestly admitted to Dr. Wooddell, I am not a fan of dental work, but I love my dentist. He is gentle, caring, and very capable. A number of years ago, I found myself on vacation in Florida needing a dentist. The one I saw there told me that my home dentist certainly did beautiful work (I have many crowns). This month, Doug saw the 3rd generation of his patients in my family when my 2.5 year old granddaughter went in for her first check-up. Now she loves him too. Her mom, a military wife, won't go to any other dentist. When they are transferred elsewhere, she comes home for her dental care with Dr. Wooddell. And let me add that I think the entire staff is warm, caring, and competent. I will go no where else for my dental care! (Don't know what we will do when the good doctor retires someday.) Thanks, Doug!

I am pleased and relieved that I discovered Dr. Wooddell. Going originally for a consultation for gum recession, Dr. Wooddell discovered I had severe tooth decay under a crown that had to be removed quickly to save the tooth. This involved a root canal and removal of my wisdom teeth. As I had a serious fear of dental work, I was petrified. I am happy to say, Dr. Wooddell saved the tooth with a crown and because of his gentle nature and that of his staff and their experience dealing with the many people who are nervous about dental work, I am also over that fear. Dr. Wooddell also recommended an excellent periodontist to do my gum work. I highly recommend Dr. Wooddell.
