Testimonials

  • "My 9-year-old needed some work done
    It always falls on a Friday afternoon when something happens. When the doctors have all gone home and are settling in. Well, we called the doctor and she said send pictures. So we did and she said to call her office first thing Monday morning to get in. We did and wow amazing! She fixed the problem tooth and my daughter didn’t feel a thing. Doc was perfect handling the entire situation. She even got us all in for cleaning super fast. Not months out. She now has 6 new patients and we couldn’t be happier. 10 out of 10 would recommend."

  • "Dr. Stidham has been my dentist for over 20 years. From routine cleaning to making crowns and bridges, she has always done an excellent job. Her staff continues to be professional and cheerful when scheduling appointments. I would highly recommend Dr. Stidham for anyone needing dental care in the Bartow area."
    - Sue Britt | 3/10/2021
  • "Dana, Patti, Karen, and Melanie, as well as the pro's that fill in occasionally are the Justice League of Dentistry. Within the high-morale environment of Dr. Stidham's practice is a Wonder Woman of which Gal Gadot is a mere pale shadow. I have had the privilege of receiving their care for, I suppose, something like 15 - 17 years. Anyone, it must be admitted, can have a bad day. No one in that practice has two years of bad days. They watch the Perio health of this septuagenerian geezer like hawks. In addition, Dr. Stidham is part of a compact group of allied medical professionals who work together like a mini medical university to synergize each other’s specialties and share information and insights. I have had the privilege of receiving care from two of these practitioners, and I must say that they, like Dr. Stidham, are at the apex of medical care. Where Teresa's comments on cost are concerned, I can only say "you get what you pay for.""

  • "I have been going to Dr. Stidham so many years now I have lost count… She and her staff are always very thorough, gentle and conscientious of the work they are performing, if it is just a routine cleaning appointment or as involved as a filling or tooth extraction, their attention to detail is always on point... everyone is always friendly and professional and appreciate their over and above health / safety precautions during these crazy times in our world!!!"
