Great Dentist in downtown Vinings, 8/26/2014

This is a clean, high-end office that performs quality dental care. Jessica has been great to work with. Even going the extra mile to ensure my dental care is covered with the carrier and there will... be no surprise billings after treatment is completed. The physicians and office is top of the line.

best in town, 7/27/2014

The quality of service and expertise is extremely extraordinary. My 12 year old son has always feared going to the dentist ever since he was five years of age. However, on July 25th 2014 he visited... for the first the Vinings Center for Dentistry and truly enjoyed his experience. Dr. Lumpkin and her staff made him feel welcome and comforted. He went there for a cleaning and exam; however, upon reviewing his x-rays, Dr. Lumpkin stated he had an impacted decay baby tooth, that needed to be extracted immediately. Naturally, he was initially extremely scared because when he was five he experience an extration that was so painful he swore he never will go back to a dentist. Dr. Lumpkin and her staff comforted him and assured him it would not be painful. The tooth was extracted and to his amazement he did not feel pain and was throughly relieved of the fact he did not feel pain. He stated to me "mommy this is the best dental experience in all his 12 years of his life. He will not be apprehenison of going to the dentist, as long as it is at Dr. Lumpkin's office". My 10 year old also stated he enjoyed his cleaning and appreciated the staff teaching him how to properly floss". I live in Stockbridge, GA about a 45 minute drive to the dentist office, upon going to the office my sons asked why do we have to go so far, I stated it was the best in town. After their experience both of my sons,concur this was the best dentist ever". Kudos to Dr. Lumpkin, Jessica, and staff.

Top Notch!

I have had to switch dentists three times in the past few years do too different reasons, however my experience with Vinings Center for Dentistry finally has me sold for good. They were very professional, helpful and provided me with everything I expect from a Dentist. They are more thorough with their cleaning’s then any dentist I have ever been too. They also gave me options in regards to different plans they recommend for me. I have never had a dentist go above and beyond to offer what they do. I feel confident that they are taking care of me 100%. I would recommend them to anyone! -Trey Scott

A Dental Gem in Vinings

I became a patient of Dr. Lumpkin's earlier this year. I chose this practice due to the proximity to my office and the very positive reviews listed on Kudzu. From the very first visit I could see that I had made a great choice, beginning with the staff. Everyone in the office is friendly, personable, and takes the time to answer any questions you may have. As a patient, I have never felt rushed and I have been very satisfied with the quality of care and attention to detail. Going to the dentist has never been high on my list of fun things to do, but I am a very happy customer at Vinings Center for Dentistry!

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 12-09-2010

Thank you! We are happy that while you initially chose us due to proximity, you have chosen to remain with our practice out of satisfaction. Again, we thank you for being a part of our practice.

Exceptional Service and Dental Care

Dr. Lumpkin has been my dentist for over 3yrs. And, from the very beginning the staff has provided outstanding service. Initially, the office was conveniently located; i have since relocated to Hampton, GA and now the drive is 45min to an hour. I chosen to have Dr. Lumpkin continue my care and treatment even after I’d relocated because I respect and trust her expert advice. I have committed to completing my treatment plan with Dr. Lumpkin because she is honest, patient, friendly, and professional. My name is Shavonne M. and I approve this message. Shavonne M.

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 12-09-2010

Thank you kindly! We are fortunate to have patients who drive as far as you do in the metro area, but we are also thrilled that we have many patients who live in European, Asian and African countries who come back to the states and maintain their continuing care visits each year! We strive to deliver exceptional dentistry and am glad that you are a part of our practice.

I'm no longer afraid of the dentist!

Dr. Lumpkin at the Vinings Center for Dentistry is the first dentist I am not afraid of visiting. Every procedure has been pain and anxiety free. It's not just Dr. Lumpkin though, but the whole staff really. Everyone at the office is great, scheduling is a breeze and Carla and Barbara are very accommodating in fitting you in. I can go on, but what else is there to say really? If you're looking for a dentist the VCFD is where it is at. One last thing: I chose the VCFD when they were able to fit me in on about 30 minutes notice (I worked down the street, so I would go there on my lunch breaks). Since then I've changed jobs and am on the other side of town, yet I'm still going back. It is harder to schedule and I have to miss some work but it is well worth it.

Great Dentist in a Convenient Location

After reading the reviews on Kudzu, I decided to give Vinings Center for Denistry a try. Upon my first visit, I was happy with the location and the promptness of my appointment. They were very professional and tentative to my needs (as I have been to the dentist for 1+ years) and always explained what they were doing and why it’s important. I am glad that I followed the reviews on Kudzu and to have Dr.Lumpkin as my dentist.

Thank you very much! Having great patients allows us to concentrate on giving you the best healthcare possible. We appreciate having you in our practice.

100% Satisfied for 19 Years!

Dr. Lumpkin has been our family dentist for 19 years! I recall our very first appointment. My husband and I arrived for our appointments and were immediately told that Dr. Lumpkin was running late. When Dr. Lumpkin entered the room the first words out of her mouth were, "I am so very sorry that I'm running late -- I had a patient with an emergency that needed my attention." It was the first time a medical professional apologized to me for being late! We were sold! Years later, when I broke a tooth at lunch, I was told to come right in -- she would take care of it. That day I was the patient with the emergency that received her immediate attention. Dr. Lumpkin is meticulous in her work. She once sent a crown back to the lab several times because it did not meet her satisfaction. She explains everything clearly. Her staff is always friendly, professional and helpful. We have been 100% satisfied for 19 years -- what more can I say?

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 05-18-2010

Thank you! Thank you! It is incredible how things so long ago are remembered and appreciated. That's all the reason why we consistently give our best care all the time and everytime. We appreciate your having been a spectacular patient for all these years! ---Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD

Tender Loving Care from Dr. Lumpkin

Dr. Lumpkin has been my dentist for the past 10 months. I have many problems with several of my teeth, most of which have surfaced in the last year. I would be lost without Dr. Lumpkin's kind and encouraging words that she will help me fix the problems. I have the utmost trust in this doctor. Her staff are among the friendliest and warmest bunch of women I have ever met in a doctor's office. While we all hate going to the dentist, Dr. Lumpkin makes the experience tolerable, comfortable and affordable. If I have to lose some of my teeth and join the world of people who wear dentures or a partial bridge, I'd rather be in Dr. Lumpkin's care than any other dentist I've ever met before and I've met a lot of them in my 58 years of life. Thanks Dr. Lumpkin!

Best Dentist and Staff!

By far the best dentist and dental staff I have ever had! Dr. Lumpkin and Yung the hygienist are wonderful! Believe it or not, it's actually a pleasure seeing them both and not scary like you would think when you go to the dentist. It also helps that the office is very cozy and the staff is so friendly! Definitely recommend, you will not be disappointed!

Best in Smyrna/Vinings

I've been to several different dentists in the area and Dr. Lumpkin and her staff have been the best. She is always very informative and reviews any and all procedures before embarking. Dr. Lumkin has filled several cavities for me and they were quick and painless. She even saved me from a root canal - whew! Dr. Lumkin is very big on technology and the use of cameras/x-rays in her practice. This does sometimes cost a bit more, but it makes for a very thourough exam and helps her see and treat my teeth better. I would recommend her to family and friends.

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 04-18-2010

Thank you very much. It is a wonderful thing to have such fantastic patients. A recent patient told me that "equal niceness" was important to her in selecting a dental practice and it is great to see these fine examples of such!---Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD

Top Notch

A HUGE thanks to Dr. Lumpkin and her staff for redefining the dental experience. I have never been to a dentist as attentive, thorough, and informative as this one. Dr. Lumpkin spotted several cavities between my teeth that my previous dentist had failed to notice, and patiently answered all my questions as I subsequently flipped out over the news! As it turns out, I have been flossing incorrectly all these years... I wonder how long it would have taken before I realized this otherwise? I have been through quite a few ordeals with bad customer service (including the dentist), so it is incredibly refreshing to find an office of people who genuinely care about the patient and do their jobs well.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are always appreciative of having patients receive the efforts that we make in patient treatment positively. -----Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD

Great Dentist

I had an awful experience at my last dentist and Dr. Lumpkin and her great staff fixed my issues, they are wonderful! Very friendly and very up front in terms of work that needs to be done and cost, extremely efficient and make you very comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist!

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 03-13-2010

Thank you kindly! It is patients like yourself that make being a dentist worthwhile. After 24 years in practice, it is still a wonderful thing to not only fix smiles, but make new ones too. It is my pleasure to be your doctor! ---Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD

Rude staff

I must start with that I never got to see Dr. Lumpkin and I have heard really good stuff about her. The staff told me twice over the phone that my appointment was at 9:30. I reached at 9:25 am . At 10 they tell me that the doctor was wrapping up her last patient and will be with me in a couple of minutes but after waiting for 1 hr I told them that I have another appointment and I had to leave. The person at the internal desk decides that it is my fault that I was early and tells me that my appointment was at 10 instead. I told her the person I talked to yesterday and the one who set up my appointment told me that it was at 9:30. She simply shrugged it off and made a rude face. I understand that doctors are sometimes running behind in their schedule but to blame it on the patient specially when I was there 5 mins before my appointment time really sucks. I am 8 months pregnant and I had to take half day off from work to come for this appointment. I was just looking for a simple apology and reschduling of my appointment but all I got was rude behaviour.

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 03-13-2010

First I would like to thank you for your recent visit to our practice. I appreciate that you have heard good things about me, as I have made every effort to earn a good reputation over the past 24 years of practice. I must say that I recall the day that you came to the office very well. You came in on a Friday morning and the staff, as I recall, made every effort to get you in that day for a limited examination in the midst of an already packed schedule day. In an effort to accommodate you in as quick a manner as possible, they tried to get you into the office without a 3 week wait for an appointment time. I think the miscommunication on your appointed time came because we have in the past requested that patients that are new to the office come approximately 30 minutes early to fill out paperwork, etc. This request would be a 9:30 arrival for a 10am appointment. I believe I was running about 20 minutes late. It so happened that a patient that was already in treatment presented with an urgent treatment issue and it took much longer than I had expected. In dentistry, once I encounter such unexpected issues, I must remain with the treatment until the proper care has been provided. When I run late it is because I am giving every patient, every time, my full attention. We certainly respect your time and you were asked several times about rescheduling due to my extended attention to the existing patient in treatment. You were given an apology for your inconvenience, however, not all patients are receptive to these requests when they are aggitated. It is never the staff's intent to be rude and it is unfortunate that is was percieved in that manner. It is a rare occasion that similar situations occur, and if and when they do, our existing patients know that I am receptive enough that they can give me a call or email and let me know their concerns and not label a genuinely concerned staff and practice poorly based on one isolated hour. I am always available to have a dialog with my patients whatever their concerns or problems may be. Should you have any further concerns, please be invited to contact me at your convenience. Again, I thank you for your recent visit to our practice. ---Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD

overall satisfaction

We all have our good days and bad days but I never leave the dentist feeling anything but good. Sore maybe ;p. I have just had my last filling for my cavities done. I am not surprised I had tons of cavities considering I hadn't been to the dentist in over 5 years but money spent is nothing compared to what could happen to your teeth. When there are so many scams out there it's easy to start seeing them EVERYWHERE. I have had good experiences with all the staff not only with Dr. Lumpkin but especially with Yung and Kathleen.

Vinings Center for Dentistry replied on 03-13-2010

Thank you kcook281! We appreciate the confidence that you have shown in our practice. I am thankful that I have such good patients in my practice. I am mortified to think that some patients feel that they must fear "scams" in the medical profession, but am deeply satisfied to be committed to the ethical and professional practice of dentistry. Again, thank you for being a part of our practice. ----Arva O. Lumpkin, DMD
