Patient Reviews


1 2 3 4 5Dr. Kendra Derrick operates with her clients in mind. She seems to have gone above and beyond the basic standards of cleanliness and safety precautions for COVID-19 in her office. You feel comfortable and relieved that she has thought of and taken all precautions necessary to protect her patients and her staff. She’s not only a great dentist but someone committed to high standards, exemplary patient care, and enforced safety. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a new dentist in Atlanta.


1 2 3 4 5This office has friendly people and I like going there. The office has been redesigned with special air circulation using hepa filters to make the air in each operatory isolated from the others. They have excellent covid-19 protection protocols in place to protect both the patient and the staff.

“Dr. Derrick has been my regular dentist for years and she and her staff are the best.

When I had the unfortunate experience of having my teeth damaged, Dr. Derrick showed me that not only is she a great dentist for “everyday”, she does wonderful cosmetic and restorative work as well- my veneers look perfect! I would recommend her to anyone!” – Monique, Atlanta GA

“I broke a tooth on my partial and Dr. Kurtz fixed it so that I don’t have to worry about it again. He is my knight in shining armor!” – Betty, Decatur GA

“I have been a patient of Dr. Derrick for over 10 years following her from her early days in Kennesaw to her current practice in Buckhead. Over the years, she has completed crowns, fillings, bondings and other procedures with the utmost of care not only for me but for my entire family. Her concern for her patients and pain free touch always leaves us with a positive professional experience.

I would also like to mention that the front office is extremely well run and with their automated insurance billing process, reimbursement is only a few days away.

Her office is over 40 miles from my house and with the high cost of gas and the time involved, I would not normally travel that distance unless I had an exceptional dentist like Dr. Derrick. – Rob, Canton GA



1 2 3 4 5I have been coming to this dentist for over ten years. Last year, she helped restore my teeth after they had decayed from mistreatment. She restored them to health and then crafted them back to be pleasant to look at. Will always be grateful for their keeping my teeth healthy as well as restoring my smile. Rock on.

“While I don’t like going to the dentist as a general principal, I very much respect Dr. Derrick and I had a high quality experience.” – Michael, Atlanta GA

“I traveled from California, my new residence, to keep my appointment with Dr. Derrick!!!”– Becky, Hermosa Beach CA

“I always have such a swell time visiting Dr. Derrick. She makes getting fillings and crowns fun.” – Todd, East Point GA
