I hate going to the dentist but when I came here it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The first dentist I’ve ever that has called me to check up and see if everything is going well in my recovery. I can’t see myself changing dentist anytime soon.

Great office and great staff. Dr. Helmick was great with my child and was very thorough in explaining how to prevent further problems. The manager and front staff were very friendly and professional and wait time was very short. I highly recommend this office.

Dr Caldwell and his wonderful staff provided me the best dental experience I’ve ever experienced. Dr Caldwell is warm and friendly and puts his patients at ease. He is very conservative in his approach to meeting the patients dental needs. I would recommend him to anyone at any time. His staff is very friendly and competent in their duties. They make going to the dentist a pleasure.

Thank you Planet Smile for your compassion during our dental emergency today. Dr. Smith and Megan, the office manager, came to our rescue on a Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. after our 8 year old broke his permanent tooth. It was extremely comforting to go to a facility that with people we know during a very stressful situation for the family. Our kids love coming here for their regular check-ups, so our little boy didn’t feel scared at all. You guys went above and beyond. We appreciate you so much.

My dental visit at Planet Smiles was terrific. Sandy cleaned my teeth and did an amazing job. Dr. Caldwell could not have been more thorough and knowledgeable during my examination. I highly recommend planet smiles..fabulous dental team!

I hate going to the dentist, I really do, but Dr. Helmick is amazingly kind and patient and does everything she can to put me at ease. So yes, I hate dental visits, but I LOVE my dentist! Everyone at Planet Smile has a ready smile and a friendly, comforting word to soothe my fears of dental treatment. Many thanks to Dr. Helmick, Desi, Renee, and Juanita for making this coward feel comfortable and happy!

I would recommend Dr. Caldwell and his staff to anyone I know. The staff was very courteous and friendly, I got an emergency appointment for the next day, I didn’t have to sir in the waiting area for more than a minute and was taken care of immediately. The staff is very knowledgeable and informed me of every step taken during my procedure. Not only would I recommend this dentist office, but can also guarantee that I won’t consider any other dentist for myself or my children.

I bring both my daughter’s here and have a wonderful experience every time!! They are very thorough with any procedure that needs to be done. And my girls love the balloons and goodie bags thry give. I would definitely recommend this office!!

Have been to Planet Smile a couple of times. At first the Planet theme seemed oriented toward young kids, but I just ignored that. There were a number for families there, and a separate kiddie room keeps them out of the regular waiting room. Dr Caldwell gave great service both times, friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend it.

Best dental experience ever!!! The doc and the staff are great. It is obvious that The health of your teeth is their number one priority.
The doc will give you all health options as well as financial options and make sure that you understand. They take the time to listen to you and answer all of your questions , then they lay out a dental plan for your health for you to review before they begin.
And as far as the pain goes, it’s only shots for the pain, it is nothing worse than stepping barefoot on a sticker in your yard, it’s not that bad.
Praise the Lord for planet smiles.

This place was honestly great! I’ve been going there since I was very little and now being 20 years old this place is easily the best place I’ve ever been too for dental care. The staff has never been rude and is very friendly. The doctors are very nice (especially Dr. Caldwell). If you need a place to get your teeth cleaned, whitened, or just checked up, come here!

-Andrew T.

My children and I absolutely love Planet Smile. Been bringing them here for almost 3 years already and have always had great experiences every time. Staff has always been friendly and very informative. Almost forgot to mention the awesome game room they have, a big plus for my son. He gets excited every time it’s time for a visit. Thanks Planet Smile for wonderful service!

-Francina F.

Absolutely LOVE Planet Smiles!! The ladies at the front are always super friendly and make my 9 year old feel so comfortable, he doesn’t even want me to go back with him at this place!! They always get us on the schedule quickly and take such good care of my boy’s smile! The Dentist he sees is just as great! Thanks Planet Smiles 🙂

I rarely take the time to do this but this office is worth the time. Dr. Caldwell has been my dentist for several years now and I am so grateful to have him. I am writing this review several hours after a major root canal and I feel great. In my situation, along with my other family members, he really cares about my treatment plan, and for once I have a dentist that is realistic about cost! He does beautiful work that is affordable. His staff is fantastic as well. Megan, the office manager, is a sweetheart and very sharp and so is Alice who also works at the front desk. They are so sweet to my little girl too, which is a big deal to me. Dr. Caldwell’s assistants, like Desi, make you feel at ease as well. I hate not to mention all of the other names, but they couldn’t be better. I have too much to say so I will end it here. He is giving me a smile again-literally. That sounds silly, but it is so wonderful to be out of so much pain and also know my smile is going to be better. Lastly, I am a Chickasaw Indian, and they accept payment from the nation. Thanks so much!

My family and I are new to Austin. I’ve used Planet Smile for all 4 of my children. I have felt welcome at each visit. The doctors and staff are so friendly and are very helpful with information and resources. I felt that everyone was genuine and wanted to give us a great experience!
