Mary is the ideal Dentist for any patient. She is caring, patient, kind, and funny. Her attention to detail is apparent in the work she does. Cosmetic Dentistry is Art and Medicine, so naturally, you would want an intelligent, artistic Doctor to do the work that will give you a beautiful smile.

“I’ve never left a review before, but this dentist truly deserves one! I was only in Gulf Shores for summer classes and planned to leave back for fall semester in four days when I had chipped my tooth and they scheduled me in immediately, did a check up and fill in the same day! The staff was incredibly friendly and as a young adult, going to a doctor for the first time alone, they made me feel so comfortable and welcome! The next morning I even received a phone call from the dentist to see how I was feeling. Absolutely amazing!”
“Amazing staff and wonderful doctor. Was there on vacation and I had recently had a root canal done at home before going on vacation. I had extreme pain for the last few days of my trip. I called to see if they could work me in, they got me in immediately. Turned out the molar behind the tooth I had the root canal in was cracked. Since I was leaving the next day it would be nearly impossible to fix the tooth, since I needed it crowned. They took care of me the best they could and sent their findings to my dentist back home. I would highly recommend this practice!!! Thank you so much Dr. Edwards!”
“Great experience! I am a snowbird who broke/cracked two molars with very old large fillings. I was able to get a same day appointment with Dr Edwards. She conducted a thorough examination and we had a frank discussion about courses of action. I chose to have two crowns. Within a week I had two new crowns. Dr Edwards and her staff were polite, professional, and extremely competent. I would and have recommend Dr Edwards.”
We look forward to your visit!
