Patient Testimonials
From the office of Greg, Ware, D.M.D., Watkinsville, Athens Dentist

"My two sister-in-laws have been seeing Dr Ware for years, and always bragged about how awesome the staff and Dr were. When I had a problem with my previous dentist they both said I had to change. This was a great decision. Have had the best dental care for the past two years with the friendliest of people. From day 1 they treated me like they had known me for years. I have since started my daughter and my mother going to Dr Ware and am about to change my son to the practice."


"Love this practice, if you must go to the dentist it is great to at least like the place. I have been a patient for 20 years and have always had great service. The staff and the doctor are very friendly and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this practice and always refer my friends to them."


"Everyone was great and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Ware is patient and good at explaining any concerns. I love that even adults get to choose a prize after their visit!"


"Jenny, Missy, and of course Dr. Ware are truly the best of the best. I’ve moved twice since first visit both times farther away than the last. But i refuse to search for another dentist because I truly don't think I would even come close to finding a near equal. Thank you for being the best."

David S.

"We LOVE us some Dr. Ware and all of his staff! Pleasant, kind, patient, considerate and accommodating are only a few of the words that we have for them. We came to them only a few years ago after a rather unpleasant few years with another Athens dentist. This is such a difference that we actually don't mind going to the dentist now. The ‘prizes’ and the ‘eggs’ are just the icing on the cake at this practice."


"Excellent service and great staff! Got my teeth whitened and love it!!!"

Holly G.

"Dr Ware is patient and works at my pace. He's down to earth and has a great sense of humor."


"Before to moving to Athens, GA, from Dallas, TX, in 1990, my TX dentist saw me 2x per year and even suggested that once per year would be safe, given the state of my teeth and gums. But I stuck with 2X year. When I move to Athens in 1990, I tried 5 dentists. Each found one or more reasons to charge me for services that I did not need. Each visit was more disappointing. Many wanted to replace all my fillings. Some wanted to ‘map’ my gums and teeth for several hundred dollars. Other suggest that my gums were receding and I needed grafts. Somehow, I found Dr. Ware. I was booked quickly and explained my history and my experience in Athens. After a through cleaning and exam, Dr. Ware was stunned that other Athens dentists had suggested all the conditions and services. So, I chose Dr. Ware and have been his patient for over 20 years now."

Sue Ann

"I always feel as though I get special consideration from Dr. Ware and his staff."


"I searched far and wide for a dentist I had confidence in. Finally, a friend suggested Dr. Ware. I was skeptical as usual, but quickly found security in Dr. Ware's competency, skills and professional relationship. His attention to detail and strong desire for the highest quality customer service makes this the best office anywhere around the Athens/Oconee area. His staff is AMAZING and always knowledgeable and striving to make you as comfortable as possible (think neck pillows, homemade afghans, music, and shades). As if making your dental experience enjoyable wasn't enough, you are sure to leave there with farm fresh eggs and veggies, along with everyone's favorite… a trip to his treasure room, it's not just for kids you know! Go see Dr. Ware and his staff, you'll be glad you did."

"Best dentist office I have ever used! Dr. Ware is thorough and gentle. I had a root canal, never had to use pain medication and was back at work the same day. I refer anyone who asks to their office."


"Dr. Ware has been our family dentist for many years, and we would never consider going anywhere else. When we first became patients at his office, I appreciated the kind and gentle approach he had with my children. Thanks to him, they did not grow up fearing dental visits. The entire staff genuinely care about the patients and are always kind and friendly. I have recommended Dr. Ware to many people, and they have all been thrilled with the treatment they received at his office!"


"Dr. Ware has been my dentist for many years, and I have total confidence in him in all matters concerning my dental health. I've had another doctor (not a dentist) while looking at my throat comment on how great my teeth look. That made me feel especially grateful for the care that Dr. Ware has provided me for many years. He's my dentist and I wouldn't consider ever changing to another dentist."

"Our family has been receiving dental care from Dr. Ware For over 15 years and our experience has always been one of comfort and trust. Dr. Ware is a kind soul who always takes time with our family to discuss dental health and check to see how everyone is doing. He even got a whole box of Vanilla Wafers for my son as a reward (he had told Dr. Ware that was his favorite treat) when he was 3 years old and had to come in to get a cavity filled. He takes the time to get to know his patients. The dental hygienists are all super sweet and helpful!"

"Dr. Ware and his staff are professional and caring. They make you feel at home, and I actually look forward to going to the dentist!"


"I love Greg Ware and his staff. Couldn't be a better group of people. We recently moved to Panama City Beach Florida but come back to Watkinsville for a dental care. If you need a dentist this is the one to see."


"I have been a patient of Dr Ware for 3 years. He is very compassionate about his patients and his work. All of his hygienists are very knowledgeable and caring as well. The office and all of the procedure rooms are very clean."


"I love Dr Ware! My family has been using Dr Ware for many years. He stays up to date on new procedures, techniques and equipment. Very laid back yet professional and always makes a personal connection with his patients by asking about family members. I even left once with fresh eggs, as he raises chickens! We love his staff as well."

Brenda B.

"Dr. Ware and his staff are genuinely kind, very approachable, and it's clear that they truly take an interest in each of their patients.

"Just wanted to say ‘THANK YOU!’ for fitting me in. We called a few minutes before 5 with some swelling and pain around my wisdom tooth. I came right over after your office said they could take a look. Customer service is what maintains a business and your office delivered that. Dr. Ware quickly diagnosed, treated and prescribed continued treatment. Today I can say that I have no pain or swelling. THANK YOU for your great service."

Shay E.

"Great service and kind people. Thanks for a great dental service!"


"My family has been going to Dr. Ware since he first opened his practice in Watkinsville. We've had nothing but positive experiences. My daughter had an accident when we were out of the country. Dr. Ware and Kim met us at the office as soon as we were back in town (which happened to be on a weekend)! Dr. Ware and his staff are the BEST!!"

"I am 65 and began going to Dr. Ware a few months ago after my long-time dentist retired. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ware and his exceptional staff! They are professional, kind, friendly, knowledgeable and just generally wonderful!!! They see that you are very comfortable and at ease, explain what they are doing and don't mind answering any questions, and show me that my time is valued by not making me wait. I just wish I had begun seeing him years ago! Plus he is generous with a gift of eggs. :)"


"A dentist and a friend for over 19 years. He was recommended by others in our community and surrounding counties. He works with integrity and a great sense of compassion for humanity. One of the best decisions I have made. He is simply the best dentist I have ever seen, with No hesitation the best… Whether you're having a checkup and/or follow or a first timer, He is the one to see for your dentistry care… Greg and ladies are the best. They are genuinely interested in your circumstance. They take the time to explain exactly what they think you should do, and why. They explain the costs and always make sure you are doing well the next day. They use up-to-date technology very effectively, and very professionally. I have truly not met many that serve humankind with such a caring spirit and servant heart. I love and care for each of them."

Tammy P.

"I just had a Root Canal and Crown. I have been to several dentists in my 50+ years… This is the best dental experience I have had. Dr Ware and his Staff are Professional, up to date on latest practice, genuinely friendly and as close to pain free as I have ever experienced. It is however, still difficult to speak clearly with their hands and instruments in my mouth :)"


"Dr. Ware and his staff are excellent in every way. I moved from Watkinsville in 2007 to Hartwell. While I have changed other doctors, my wife and I decided to stay with Dr. Ware, because the staff feels like family. They are worth the extra hour drive. That's putting your money where your mouth is…"


"What can I say about Dr. Ware, he is the kindness dentist we have ever had. He was our dentist years ago (1999 and earlier) and returned to Athens in 2013 and he welcomed us like we had never left! He and ALL of his staff take all the time needed to work their magic and visit. Thank you for all you do."


"I have been a patient of Dr. Ware for over 20 years. I actually don't mind going to the dentist anymore. I have had extensive dental work done by Dr. Ware and he has always explained to me in detail what to expect. I feel comfortable and relaxed whenever I am in 'the chair'. Dr. Ware has an awesome staff. They always make me feel welcome. I feel like one of the family."


"Dr. Ware has been my dentist since he opened his Watkinsville office! Even on an unplanned (emergency) visit everyone was very accomodating and being able to receive a crown in one visit was amazing! I recommend Dr. Ware's practice to anyone looking for a great dentist."

"Greg has been my dentist for 4 years. When I moved to Watkinsville, he was strongly recommended by others - also his patients - and after making some phone calls to satisfy myself, I went to see him. Best healthcare decision I have made in Athens. He is simply the best dentist I have ever seen. Seriously. And I am pretty obsessive about my dental care.

Whether you are having a cleaning, or a root canal (he did mine), or a crown (several), or a bridge (did it), Greg and his nurses are the best. They are authentically interested in your case. They explain exactly what they think you should do, and why you should do it. They explain the costs (and give a discount if you are of Medicare age). They call to make sure you are doing well the next day. They fit you in if you have an emergency. And, yes, they are technically proficient. More than good. They use current technology effectively, and efficiently, and they do not - repeat: do NOT - do unnecessary stuff. Yes, I'm a Doc Ware fan!"


"I had lost faith in my dentist after having a couple of bad experiences and was anxious about what to do. Dr. Ware was recommended to me by a friend. After my first visit I felt that I had finally found a dentist who genuinely cared about his patients and was committed to he and his staff giving the best care possible to his patients. I feel fortunate to have found a top-notch dentist with a courteous and friendly staff and would highly recommend them to anyone (not to mention that my visit was pain free)!"


"The staff of Dr. Ware's are polite, friendly and accommodating so you'll receive an efficient and pleasant dental care visit. Dr. Ware provides you with an affordable dental care without sacrificing high quality up-to-date craftsmanship, with an professionalism & exceptional caliber of competence as well as a positive attitude that will put you at ease. He valves his patients opinion & let's you know what procedure he will be providing. Your TRUST and COMFORT is Dr. Ware's top priority.

I would recommend Dr. Ware for everyone of all ages. Put a smile back on your face!"

Lisa S.

"We love us some Greg Ware! He really spends quality time with us talking about our dental health but more importantly, talking about how we're doing an what we're doing and how he and his kids are doing as well as his chickens. We adore Natalie and her friendly style and hilarious conversations. She's amazing! The office staff is ALWAYS friendly and professional.

The office is always abuzz with good conversation and laughter. It's our kinda place! Oh and did I mention I only had a 2 minute wait before I was called back to door number 2 this morning!!!!"

Gordon and Roz

"Greg is an excellent dentist that truly cares for his patient's dental health. He is knowledgeable and well networked in the area of dental care. If he can't do the work (and there's little he can't do), you can trust his recommendation/referral to someone that can.

I and most of my family members use Dr. Ware's practice for our primary dental care. I would recommend him to anyone seeking the highest quality dental treatment for a fair price."
