What Our Patients Are Saying
Shenna at the front desk is amazing and made my experience great here at McRae’s on Baxter!! She has a beautiful presence that is needed not just here at this office but in the world!! Thank you all for your service.
From the moment my son and I walked in the door, we were treated with nothing but kindness, respect, and understanding. I was very impressed with the speed that my son was treated while still answering all my questions and making him feel completely at ease. Dr. Reynolds has a patient for life in my son. I honestly can NOT think of a single thing to which I had an issue. Your children will be cared for here!!!

This was my first time visiting McRae Dental. The staff was very professional and I really appreciated getting an appointment on short notice. Sheena was especially nice and patience with my questions. I have found a new home for my dental needs.
I had amazing experience I love the team their I recommend everybody to them they are an legacy an pillar to our community an alot of ways the hospitality and the caring dentist is astounding and they do the best dental work I've ever had never had any problems
They worked me in late on a Friday. I was impressed by being told options and was comforted when the tooth problem was much bigger than I expected
Let me first start with my past history with dentists. I have never had a positive dental experience and some even traumatic. Because of this I have avoided going for far too long. I am new to Athens and while searching for a local dentist I came across McRae and was encouraged by the excellent reviews. Will this be the first positive encounter with a dentist in my 35 years of life? The answer is absolutely YES. I have been twice now and most recently to start working on deep cleaning and repairing. The person who cleaned my teeth today was incredible. We hit it off from the start and all the little things from that point on made what could have been another awful time at the dentist actually somewhat enjoyable! I have never had anyone put sunglasses on me for an exam or cleaning. They did! What a huge difference this made for my comfort level. Who would have thought?! Not having to stare at those bright lights the whole time (I am incapable of closing my eyes during something like that) and they worked as a shield for any flying liquid. Wow. They also consistently checked in on me to make sure that I was doing ok and overall were very comforting. I cannot express how much I appreciate the care I have received so far and I will certainly be recommending McRae to anyone who will listen. Thank you all so much for taking care of me and changing my mind about going to the dentist. I appreciate y'all so much!
Great people. Dr. McRae great Dentist.

Common Questions From Our Patients
As a family practice, we want everyone to feel comfortable. We will examine your child’s teeth, discuss home hygiene care, and answer any questions you may have about our practice. We welcome you to make an appointment for yourself or for a child’s older sibling the same day, so your young child can see we are here to help.
The answer to this question will be different from patient to patient. To find out what is best for you, we start with a consultation to find out your goals and the condition of your teeth. With that information, we can work with you to develop a plan to give you a smile makeover with one or more of our many cosmetic services.
Dental restorations (crowns, bridges, and dentures) replace the natural crown of your missing tooth. Implants are replacements for the roots of lost teeth and support your new restorations. With implants, your replacement teeth are stronger. They are secured to your jawbone, so you can eat what you want and maintain your jaw health for many years to come.
