  • I had my first visit at Emerald Coast Dental Spa & Sleep Medicine. It was my favorite visit to the dentist ever! The office was very inviting, clean, and comfortable. You are able to tour the facility and meet the most pleasant office staff. The dentist and hygienist(Victoria and Robyn)were so friendly and cool that I forgot I was at a dentist office. If you are looking for a perfect visit to a dentist office, please make this phone call. You will also get a gift on your way out!

  • This is my third trip to this dental service and time I have had a wonderful experience. Victoria, Robyn, and Heather always have me feeling welcomed and relaxed not to mention are very patient with explaining the processes and treatments. Tj also makes the check out process very smoothly as well as helping me understand the payment process and cost. I cannot adequately express how these four have made going to the dentist as something to look forward to rather and another chore to be done.

  • I can not say how amazing this place is! My daughter has a lot of anxiety when it comes to getting her teeth worked on. We have been asked not to come back to multiple dentists because of her anxiety until we found Emerald Coast Dental Spa & Sleep Medicine! Dr. Krestos and Heather were not only able to clean her teeth but they were also able to do multiple fillings. My daughter is probably the worst patient ever but they never got upset with her and had way more patience than I would have ever expected! We are also seeing Dr. Griffin on the sleep side and she is great as well. She explains everything so throughly and in a way that my daughter understands. This place is a game changer for us! Thank you all so so much!!

  • I am posting this review for my mother, Felicia Gunn. She says the Emerald Coast Dental Office is caring, patient, hard-working, detail-oriented, organized, and dedicated to their work! She has not had pleasant experiences with previous dentists and the experience at Emerald not only resolved the issues she faced from those previous experiences, but also left her feeling much better health wise. The team of doctors are true professionals and take their work seriously and care for the outcome of their patients. She especially wants to thank TJ and Sidney for everything they did. Their prompt responses and willingness to listen and check every concern is refreshing and much needed in today's world. Highly recommended!

    Got a broken crown over my visit to PCB last month and needed a check before I returned to my home dentist. After a few calls from my in-network list, I came across Emerald Coast Dental. Victoria, Patient Experience Coordinator, was great and managed to get me in! The warmness and professionalism of Dr. Griffin, Victoria and the entire team was really special and I wanted to be sure to let them know how much I appreciated that! After an okay from Dr. Griffin and no pain involved, I was able to go on and enjoy the rest of my vacation. I met such a wonderful team at Emerald Coast and if I'm ever fortunate enough to move to PCB, I know where I would go for dental treatment. Thank you very much!

    This is a good group of professionals, from the front office to all the team taking care of you. They know what they're doing and more importantly, they truly care how you are doing. They make sure that you are taken care of. I am not from here and had a dental problem while I was visiting and they took me in right away and got my issue taken care of right away! They have definitely got it figured out how to treat their patients and I highly recommend!

  • My experience at dentists has been mixed, and usually it isn't pleasant. This place was welcoming. The facility itself is light & airy. Everyone introduced themselves. From the front desk to the hygienist, to another hygienist to the dentist, the therapy dog, and the last lady as you go out the door, I met them all, and the appointment card has the names of everyone I met. I will be more comfortable next time. It feels like I'm getting exceptionally good care from people who care.

  • I recently retired from 49 years in the dental profession and relocated to Florida.
    I waited to share any review until after much research and several visits to determine if this will be our permanent dental office.
    I’m happy to say this is by far, an outstanding dental practice!!
    The office is spotless, the entire team is professional, welcoming, helpful and informative. Everything is explained thoroughly and questions answered in a no pressure, relaxed, no rush atmosphere.
    I HIGHLY recommend this state of the art practice and look forward to a lifetime of excellence in dental care for my husband and I.

    I have visited this office several times now, and have always had an extremely positive experience! They are extremely professional and seem to genuinely enjoy helping patients. From Victoria, April, TJ, Mia, Khyla, Lori and Dr. Griffin, everyone has been positive, solutions oriented, and strive to make you feel extremely comfortable. They are very detailed and are very happy to answer all of my questions, explaining in detail. I am very impressed and would happily recommend them.

Emerald Coast Dental Spa had the friendliest staff and most inviting building that I have ever been too while getting my regular checkup! I loved everything about it (especially the service pup)!!! I have changed my primary dentist care to this facility after 10 years with my other provider. Thank you again!

My wife went to another dentist here in Panama City beach and after being poked and prodded the other dentist referred her to a “specialist” in San Destin which couldn’t get her in for another week. She was in so much pain that we decided to come to Emerald Coast Dental. They got her in and said they didn’t know why the other place didn’t just pull the tooth because there was no saving it. They gave us a great price for pulling the tooth and took great care of my wife instead of trying to gouge us for more money! The staff is friendly and professional. All and all a great place!

I think I already reviewed this dentist. I have to go here. I can’t go anywhere else. Y’all should try it.

I am nervous about going to dentists in general so to find one where I am totally at ease is a priority for me. This office exceeds all of my nervous fears and apprehensions. Furthermore, when they can take you from the waiting room though a filling and out to the payment desk in 18 minutes (literally because I checked) without feeling anything at all, they deserve an extra amount of praise. I highly recommend this office to anyone in Bay County or the surrounding areas. Dr Krestos is top knotch in my book!

The office staff was so nice and accommodating. They explained their procedures in great detail. I didn’t know visiting the dentist could be such a pleasant experience! Also, I was able to nerd out over looking at slides of my saliva 😅

Great place and wonderful people. As a new patient I went I. Today for my first visit and eval, Victoria in reception was friendly and helpful, made me feel welcome. Robyn was my hygienist and she explained everything and was very informative and a great person to talk to, she was also gentle 🙂. Dr Griffin came in and expanded on explanations and the plan for me. She was warm and caring and I honestly felt she was interested in getting me in a better place with my teeth! Would recommend Emerald Coast Dental Spa to anyone new to the area or to anyone unhappy with your current dentist!

Everything about this place is awesome! especially the staff! and that makes a huge difference in any business, Linda the insurance coordinator did an excellent job getting this done!

We are so thankful to have been referred to Dr. Griffin for our daughter’s dental/sleep issues. We were evaluated for the DNA appliance to correct her bite, but we also had concerns about her oral airway and sleep issues. We completed an at home sleep study, have our “starter” mouth appliance, and are working with Mia doing myofunctional therapy. Her bite is already shifting and straightening, and the exercises Mia has her doing are helping her with proper tongue posture. I would highly recommend parents having their children evaluated if they have crooked teeth, are mouth breathers, snore, grind teeth, have nighttime potty accidents, etc. It could all be stemming from their oral airway. The office staff ar ECDS have been awesome, and so has Dr Griffin. Great experience!!

Such an amazing and sweet group of employees. They make you feel right at home, which says a lot for me because I have bad anxiety when it comes to dentists and doctors offices. Ricko they emotional support dog is also very helpful and a sweetheart. Love that baby! The office is also nice. Their work is very great!
