What Makes Our Dental Practice Unique

Have you ever been to a dental office where you felt like your concerns were not heard? At Alafaya Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on the lasting relationships we establish with our patients. We actively listen to you and we strive to exceed your expectations during every phase of treatment.

These friendships are meaningful because they build trust and help you feel safe and secure, knowing that your care is in the hands of professionals who only want the best for you.

Also, by learning what’s important to you, we can tailor your treatment accordingly. This ensures that you always receive the care that fits all your needs.

Our Comfortable, Relaxed Cosmetic Dentist Office

We understand that many patients are anxious about visiting the dentist, and we do everything possible to make your time with us pleasant and even enjoyable! You’ll notice the difference the moment you enter our elegant reception area, which resembles a living room rather than a typical dentist's office. A smiling team member will be there to welcome you and help you with anything you need.

We enhance the relaxed atmosphere with soothing music and the subtle scent of aromatherapy candles. Patients enjoy muffins, energy bars, juice, and coffee as they wait for their appointments.

We know you will also appreciate the spa-like amenities we offer for your comfort. From lavender wraps for the neck and herbal eye packs to lumbar pillows and a shiatsu neck massager, you will feel more like you’re in a spa than a dental office!

There are no words to describe exactly how amazing my experience with Dr.Michaelson and his staff has been. From day one I felt so welcome in his office. My smile was honestly one of my largest insecurities, I never wanted to show my teeth for photos and covered my mouth while laughing. I went to Dr. Michaelson's office in hopes to get veneers and a new smile. Every consultation was easy and relaxed. I felt so safe with his team. - Cassie P.
