Both Dr. Messer and his staff were so informative on my procedure and the costs of what I needed done. This was my first appointment and they made me feel as if I had been coming for years. A friendly personality goes a long way and this is just what they give. The dentist is one of the worst places for me to go but they made my experience that much better.

I had the best experience with Invisalign at Southwind Dental, from start to finish they took the time to explain everything every step of the way! My teeth transformation is unbelievable, and they made me feel comfortable every time I visit, if you are on the fence about Invisalign, this is your sign to go for it! Everyone deserves a great smile.

I Absolutely Love the staff. Dr. Messer couldn’t have chosen his team any better! Many Blessings & I Love You All💞💞

My experience is always AMAZING when I visit Southwind Dental Care. Though I’ve had a couple visits with Dr. Messer as teen, I personally decided start my dental care journey with the Southwind Dental Care team in 2017. I hadn’t had my smile checked in almost a decade because of dental fears, but y’all, this team is where it’s at! 😜 They helped to ease my concerns and even made me feel human by allowing me to express my fears and not passing judgment, all while showing me great empathy! I needed a deep cleaning, two root canals, and a ton of fillings. As we started my treatments, they allowed me to schedule and move at my own pace, which made me feel like I was in the best hands on the planet! At one point, I was coming so much, I feel like I’ve formed a familial bond with them! They’re always interested in hearing about my daughter and my nephew, our pets and our past/ previous vacations. Needless to say, if you’re ever looking for great dental care with a personable experience catered to your direct needs, head on over to Southwind Dental Care and meet my dental family! I promise you won’t be disappointed! 😃*Shoutout to Dr. Messer, Whitney, Ariana, Kelly, Kyndal (met her today, super sweet), and the rest of the outstanding staff! 🪥 🦷

05:38 21 Feb 24
I have been a patient of Dr. Messer for over 10 years and my experience with Southwind Dental Clinic has been far greater than any dental care I have received here in Memphis Tennessee. All of the staff are very professional and kind. I don’t want to start mentioning names, but my hygienist and those who have taken care of me, have made my experience worthwhile! Thank you Dr. Messer and staff!
16:47 01 Feb 24

Friendly and courteous staff. Great dental care.
03:39 26 Oct 23
It’s a privilege to share my experience with the Southwest Dental Clinic. I have always walked in there with an assurance that the care rendered is awesome, from every single member of the staff. Even over a phone call, you feel that touch of care.
12:30 18 Oct 23
They are the best, trust me I have been to multiple places but here they are very sweet and nice and best in business and very reasonable pricing! I had multiple root-canals and fillings, I really like the way how they treat people
16:05 13 Oct 23
They are friendly and professional. I didn’t have to wait along time. I’m and out. They explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend you give them a try.
15:31 29 Sep 23
My partner has been a client of Southwind Dental for a little over a year now, he started with Invisalign and then hygiene.. he's been trying to get me to go since he started. I finally took the leap and went back in July, and man should I have gone in sooner!The team is quite literally amazing. Whether you have fears about your teeth, any issues in your mouth, wanting to start your braces journey, or maybe just have anxiety of going to the dentist/ortho – trust me when I say this crew is going to help you get over that fear! You are welcomed from the moment you call to stepping into the office and sitting down for your check-up to when you leave. I am super impressed.My invisalign journey has been great (started back in July) and I just got my first cleaning yesterday. So much care and support. I truly recommend checking them out even if it's just for a consultation. You will not be disappointed!
15:26 20 Sep 23
Dr Messer and his team are the best! I had a crown pop off over the weekend. They got me in & out quickly. Thank you! Y’all Rock..
12:18 19 Sep 23
Great service and kind staff I totally recommend them to my friends or family.
00:50 12 Jul 23
Going to the dentist is far from one of my favorite things to do. I have been dreading having two needed procedures done. Well, yesterday I had those two procedures done (a crown and a filling). My experience was impressive. When it came time to get my gums deadened, I barely felt the needles. Of course I got the nitrous gas and whatever numbing gel they used. Usually I still feel the needles. I didn’t this time and for me, that’s a big deal!! My children and I have been going to Dr. Messer now for about 2-3 years. If you’re looking for a new dentist, check them out.
11:24 08 Jul 23
Great friendly staff, very informative and thorough explanation of everything done. I highly recommend
03:23 14 Jun 23
Thank You all for your caring & professionalism. They are keys to Success. Dr. Messer & Whitney, You all are the Best!!! May GOD's Favor of Blessings be upon your lives now & always!!! Be Safe, Well & Bold in the LORD! Be Blessed to be a Blessing!!!
12:33 19 May 23
Dr. Messer and his staff are awesome! I’ve been going to him for the past few years. He and his staff are always welcoming, polite and professional. I always feel comfortable during my treatments and know I’m in good hands.

This was my first visit to Southwind Dental Care. I was very pleased with the services provided. Everyone was very nice & professional. Abby, the dentist hygienist and Dr. Messer were very kind. Dr. Messer explained everything and addressed my concerns.
03:40 17 Feb 23
Only issue I see is they don't have beer on tap in the waiting room, other than that the care and treatment is superior!
14:51 15 Feb 23

I wore them for a little over a year and between Dr Messer and staff they made it an amazing experience. My entire family attends Southwind Dental and i would recommend them to perform any and all dental services.
11:42 21 Jul 22
Southwind Dental has been my place of choice since Dr. Smith moved to this location. Dr. Timothy arrived and the practice still gives the same professional service. Appointments are easy and prices are very good. Thank you Dr. Timothy for all that you and your staff do for me and my family.
19:06 13 Jul 22

00:44 10 Jun 22
Was in the waiting room 30 min before I was seen but Dr. Messer & staff were very friendly and engaging, and I felt they were being genuine with the work I needed done. Just moved here and am glad to say I found my new dentist on the first try!
22:13 08 Jun 22
Best dental office I’ve ever stepped in. Staff is great. Dr. Messer is a complete professional and easy talk to. It’s like you’re part of the family.
16:23 02 Jun 22

Dr. Messer and his staff are always nice and professional. They always provide great details about your procedure, including cleanings and offer suggestions for aftercare. I have referred several family members and friends to this office.
11:50 19 May 22
The staff and dentist were all great, attentive, and informative. There patience with me as well as with others that I manage to witness is outstanding. You can't always see the front staff and the medical staff all have a great personality, but I did that day. Keep up the great teamwork and taking care of us! I look forward to being your patient.
11:47 29 Apr 22
Have been a patient of his for years. Great group to use for dentistry.
19:52 05 Apr 22
I just left and was very impressed. The people were super nice and the diagnosis was very thorough. I was told what was going on every step of the way. The dental technician told me what she way seeing and then Dr. Messer came in and went into the steps which needed to be performed. I was given a detailed list of each step as well as the anticipated cost after each step. Best dental experience I've ever had.
16:26 24 Mar 22
I highly recommend the team at Southwind Dental Care. I've been seeing Dr. Messer for about 8 years, and I have been nothing but satisfied with his care. I actually live 15 miles away from his office, but find him to be worth the drive! One of the things I appreciate most about him is the range of treatment plans he offers to correct/treat dental concerns. He doesn't just provide the most expensive option. He gives several options, each with a projected cost, from least invasive/expensive to more extensive. He is professional, caring, has extensive expertise, and his office team is just as exceptional!
15:06 21 Mar 22
I love everything about Southwind Dental, Dr. Messer and his team. Everyone there is very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and hard working. The state of the art equipment is everywhere. They use these tools very efficiently in explaining the health of your mouth.I’ve been a patient of Dr Messer’s for 12 years and Whitney is my Hygienist. My mother is also a patient. She went through Invisalign and couldn’t be happier with her results.At Southwind Dental, the costumer service starts with the first phone call. Arianna is amazing and will make sure you are taken care of. The hygienist are perfect at explaining your needs and the assistants, Kelly and Victoria, make your treatment procedures go smoothly.They all do an incredible job and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.If you are looking for your next dental home, look no further, you’ve found it!
18:53 10 Mar 22
This is the best dental office in Memphis! The staff is absolutely amazing! They’re patient with me & take the time to listen to my concerns. I initially chose this location a couple of years ago because it was convenient & close to my home, I’ve since moved & wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you Southwind dental for all that you do, you are truly appreciated!
18:27 01 Mar 22
My wife and I have been coming here for 15+ years! Great dentist & staff !!!

21:49 09 Feb 22

17:32 23 Sep 21
All the staff - from receptionist to hygienist to dentist - are ALWAYS courteous, helpful, and professional. If you want to experience top-notch service and care, I highly recommend Dr. Messer & Co.!
19:34 16 Sep 21
They do a great job. They don’t hire any ugly people, and the dentist reminds me of a more fit and sane Alex Jones. I have referred a colleague.
23:02 14 Sep 21
My experience was a pleasurable one. Everyone was nice and professional.They made me feel that they did care. I went in thinking that i was going need my tooth repaired but come to find out I needed my wisdom tooth pulled. The dental assistant (I did not remember her name) made my first tooth pull a calming experience. She told me what was going to happen and it happened just like that. She walked me through the entire process. Dr Messer was concerned and made me feel comfortable as well. He was very informative and pleasurable to talk to. From the time I walked through the door to the time I left back out the door my visit was A+. I will be bringing my husband and 2 children to Dr Messer and staff.Thank you all for my pleasurable experience!
16:10 13 Sep 21
I have been seeing Dr. Messer for years. Last week I had a dental emergency and even though they were pretty booked up, they worked me into the schedule. I had a very angry 🦷 that wasn’t going down without a fight, but Dr. Messer won the battle. Lol. He got rid of my pain and gave me the relief I needed. It’s a great feeling to know that he and his staff are there when I need them. Everyone in that office, from the front to the back is awesome!!! They truly care about each and every patient.
03:07 20 Jan 21
Dr Messer is the absolute best dentist in the Memphis area. He and his staff go above and beyond for their patients. I will be a life long patient! Thank you all for always taking the best care of me!
16:48 02 Apr 20
Absolutely great dentist practice and all of the staff are very professional! No complaints here! AAA+++!
01:18 12 Feb 20
Dental assistants are the most attractive in Memphis.
18:57 04 Feb 20
I’d recommend everything. The best dental office I’ve been to. Everyone is very pleasant and nice.
18:25 13 Dec 19
I was visiting from out of state and had a terrible tooth ache. I called them and the next morning they helped me with my problem. Very affordable (even without insurance) and the staff is very friendly. Overall I highly recommend them.
15:24 21 Mar 19
Me, my husband, children, and my father are patients of Dr. Messer an i have never been disappointed. All of the staff is amazing.
23:21 20 Mar 19
Very responsive, friendly and economical.
16:51 04 Feb 19
My husband had procedures done. And he can’t say enough about how pleased he was with the outcome. Going with him I found the staff friendly and professional. Yay!
21:43 30 Aug 18
I’ve always had a great experience with Dr. Messer and his excellent team. They are always considerate and actually remember you. Dr. Messer and his team always know the best plan of treatment. Yesterday’s experience was amazing, Dr. Messer was on a roll. He completed dental work that at any other office would have taken5-6 visits. I moved to the other side of city 2 yrs. ago but would not even consider a new dental clinic that is closer, Southwind Dental Carenis the best. Thank you.
12:09 08 Aug 18
Dr. Messer and his staff are absolutely the best!!! He fixed m my dental issues created by another dentist and I have never been happier!!!! He knows his stuff!!!
00:14 07 Jun 18
I had a dental emergency...again. I couldn't find a dentist to work with me and my schedule with work. I met with Dr. Messer and he had them out the next business day without the need of an oral surgeon and additional consultations.
Not only that, but I was very comfortable throughout and uncomfortable process. Him and his staff are courteous and professional.
Now I have found a dentist for my three kids and my wife. He even did a cleaning on two of my kids, at the same time, that fit in my erratic and unpredictable schedule.
I couldn't ask for more out of a dentist. You guys are awesome. I appreciate all your help. Looking forward to a long relationship with this office.
13:39 01 Jun 18
19:50 31 May 18
Sweet staff. Have always had a wonderful experience. Great work!
15:45 25 Apr 18
One word "AWESOME" for the time you work in to the time you leave.
14:36 25 Apr 18
They went above and beyond to help me. I am very impressed with the care and understanding they show their patients!!!
16:23 24 Apr 18
I have always been a person who did not like going to the dentist because of bad experiences, but the people that work at South Wind Dentistry made me have a whole new out look about going to the dentist office. They were professional and oh so friendly. I had my teeth cleaned and Ms. China was wonderful. My dentist Mr. Messer was very friendly and very knowledgeable. They now have a patient that will not go anywhere else.
20:16 16 Mar 18
Great place. Great staff!! Yesterday I was having a dental emergency. I had a wisdom tooth that was given me extreme pain. I had called all around trying to get it extracted and I kept getting the runaround. Nobody seemed too care. The problem has become bad enough that I knew I wasn't going to wait another day. I recently moved on Hacks Cross, so I searched for local dentist
20:38 07 Mar 18
Never been would love to check it out Thank You!!!
21:06 04 Mar 18
Really nice people! Great location, clean space also.
