Welcome to Athens Family Dental!



 To maintain safety and wellness, please know and respect our guidelines:
If you are coming in for an appointment, our door greeter will take your temperature (must be below 100.4) before being permitted in the building and issue hand sanitizer to you.

You will be escorted to a sanitized exam room as quickly as possible, away from others.

Only those being seen are asked to enter the building.  We ask that family members please remain in the car.  If you have traveled outside of the US in the past three weeks, we ask that you not come to our office.  If you have been around anyone in the past week with a cough, fever, symptoms of illness or flu, please reschedule.
Welcome to Athens Family Dental! For over 25 years we have served residents of Athens, Georgia and the surrounding areas.  Our entire staff is committed to providing the highest standard of care in a professional and comfortable environment. 


Our top priority is helping you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Therefore, we are unconditionally committed to the following principles:

  • To provide the highest standard of patient care and service;
  • To maintain the highest level of professional skills possible;
