....let's see what our patients think

Amazing Dentist and staff! I am so lucky to have found the perfect fit for my dental care needs. I’ve had MANY negative experiences at other dentist offices, in multiple states I’ve lived in, and I have never been able to fully trust a dentist until I met Dr Ferrara. She is the BEST, her quality of work is phenomenal, and I highly recommend her! I’ve loved every experience I’ve had from day one, and did I mention the staff is just as amazing! Always greeted with a smile, very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional! Hands down the best Dentist office around.

Everyone is always so nice & efficient

Never thought visiting the dentist could be such a pleasent experience. The entire team is there to work with you and you never feel pressured to complete a suggested treatment, but always encouraged to do so with a plan in mind to meet the objective set forth. Missing an opportunity to visit Dr. Maria Upshaw is like missing that scoop of Vanilla ice cream on top of a freshly baked pie, it just doesn't get any better!


I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Leslie Ferrara and her staff. They are professional, yet personable and really care about my concerns not only answering them but taking the time to make sure I fully understood my options. I greatly recommend working with Dr.Ferrara!!!

(Plus the view is pretty great from the 14th floor )

The Amazing Kesha

I was initially impressed with Kesha’s enthusiasm. She is dedicated and eternally upbeat.

Kesha took extra time to explain what she was doing, why she was going to do it and helped prepare me for any discomfort I might encounter. Her attention to detail was unparalleled to anything I have experienced in a dental office.

Kesha made my experience in the dentist chair an enjoyable one.

She did an amazing job removing stains 2 different dentists were unable to. I owe her gratitude. Kesha is a world class Hygienist and she has my highest recommendation for any dental work.

Joe P.

Very pleased with all my experiences. Dr Upshaw is great! Staff is great!

My friend Nancy referred me to your office & it has been great from Day 1. The environment is warm, caring & friendly. 'A Team Environment'. Holly has been wonderful to deal with - Very Professional! Penny has been wonderful as well. Great side chair presence - caring & reassuring. Kesha is also great! Dr Upshaw you are wonderful as well & it reflects in the care of your patients & your staff. Thank you!! : )

Carol C.

I’ve been coming here since 1996 and have always had an excellent experience and level of service since. People have come and gone throughout the years however I’ll single out Kesha as my favorite hygienist of all time. She’s great at what she does and she’s got a great personality which is a winning combination.

Hello! I visited your office as a brand new patient yesterday, October 16th. Dr. Upshaw was my Dentist. It was one of the most pleasant visits I have ever had coming to get my teeth cleaned! The office is very nice, pleasant and inviting. The entire staff is extremely friendly and always smiling. The “little” things make all the difference, including what happens when you’re in the chair. My time spent there from start to finish was very enjoyable and I am super happy I chose Ferrara Dental. Thank you! Keep it up!
