We have been coming here for nearly 20 years. Best hygienists ever there is not one bad one amongst them just excellent service. Dianne on the desk super efficient. Dr. Wallby is our dentist and he does amazing work with caps and fillings. He gets it right every time and is very kind patient and gentle. Extremely professional

First time here. I found them to be very prompt and well-organized professionals. Helpful & friendly. They explained what they were doing every step of the way..  From the outside you would not guess how many patients were taken care of inside. Very convenient location for those who live in the Rochester area. Cheerful dentists and pretty hygienists.

Today was my first appointment at this office. I can't say enough about how well I was treated. What a top notch office - from the front desk, the hygienist, and of course the dentist- Dr. Tyler.  I highly recommend this office and their professional staff.

Dr. Patricia Scalia is not only professional and skillful, she is meticulous in what she does and very attentive. When my filling broke, she made time to make an appointment and change it free of charge! Now that is not a standard practice! That is exceptional care! 

Megan is the best dental hygienist ever! She is very knowledgeable and shows great attention to detail, never rushes and explains everything step by step and cracks some jokes in between :) 

I love their office and staff.  Everyone is friendly and go out of their way to help.  I will not go anywhere else.  Highly recommended!!

Very personal atmosphere with a friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff.  Cozy historic home in downtown Rochester is the perfect location.  Skilled doctors, great hygienists. Best dental practice in the Rochester area!

UDA has always been thorough, quick, friendly, and professional. I have been seeing them since 2013 and I don't have a single complaint. Reception has always been patient and friendly with scheduling, billing, and insurance. The dental hygienists always greet you with a smile and the dentists take the time to go over any questions or concerns you may have. I never feel like I'm being shoved out the door to get another patient in the chair. Highly recommend!

My family all have gone to Dr Tyler for over 25 years but have also seen Dr. Kennedy AND Dr Scalia.  My son's veneers have lasted for 18 years and he'd hoped for 10 at best.  Dr. Tyler is caring and sympathetic and as painless as possible.  He saved several of my teeth for seven years and worked WITH my periodontist, Dr. VAN RAAPHORST to keep my smile intact!

Would you believe I've been going to the same dentist my entire life? How's that for commitment? I think my first cleaning here was around age 5 and I'm pretty sure Dr. Tyler was there. Even then, he was the talk of the town.

I don't live in good old Rochester Hills anymore but there's something comforting about returning there twice a year for my annual cleaning, seeing Trudy my dental hygienist and Dr. Kennedy or Dr. Tyler.

The office has been updated but some of the staff is still the same. And they always remember me, ask about my family and are ready with a friendly smile. 

I've been blessed with good genes in the teeth department (which I credit in part to the staff at University Dental and in part to my mother who was also a dental hygienist by profession and a stickler for oral care when were kids). Between that and my lovely teen years of braces and appliances, I'm happy the upkeep is minimal these days! 

I schedule ahead of time but can always get in when I need to.

Dr. Tyler is the best dentist ever. University Dental Associates uses state of the art equipment to mold a crown, and set it in one sitting. The color is an exact match. Beautiful artistry.

There are three dentists in all, and I like the personable relationships that I have with them. I like the personal attention of the hygienist. They are pretty good at getting me in for appointments. I would rate them highly and would continue to use them in the future.

Thomas Rabaut

He is a great dentist and I like him. The office is just the friendliest office that I have ever been to. The building that it is located in actually looks like a house, and it is so warm and cozy-looking. It is very updated and clean and it just feels like your best friend's house


They are one of the best dentist practices around. They have got an advanced crown technology (the Cerec system) in the office and can complete same-appointment restoration and placement. The crown results, for me, have been both aesthetic and functional.


Dr. Tyler was very helpful and thorough, I have had facial reconstruction and needed a hygienist that could clean my teeth without hurting my jaw. She was wonderful!!!!! I thought I'd have to go back and do one side then the other, (which they would have done), but I had it all done on the same day!

Julie Huff

They are state of the art, technically. Their employees are great to work with. Their prices are great and they are the best dentist I've visited.

Richard Guggino

Dr. Tyler uses the Cerec system in which the crown is milled as you wait. The whole process from start to placement of the crown took 1 1/2 hours. It's a fantastic process using a camera to take impressions.

Philip Swisher

Great visit. Staff is awesome. They are very busy so if you are a new patient be ready to wait about 2 months for your first appointment.

Debra Young

Top notch care. Kept me informed of the procedure along the way. Was SO IMPRESSED, I'll be starting Invisalign work with his team as well

Mark Heffner

Very well and painless

Dana Cuddy

Great, the office and staff are very friendly. Dr. Kennedy is very good.

Patricia Petro

The staff is friendly, informative, and efficient. Patient's apprehension about pain was treated with respect and accommodations made accordingly. Excellent "bedside" manner. Electronic scheduling reminder very useful.

Stephen Merritt

Been a patient at University Dental for 20+ years. Never had any issues with their dentists, hygienists or reception staff. They are all very kind, professional and easy to work with. I’ve never needed any fillings or oral surgery of any kind because they’ve kept my teeth in pristine condition my entire life. Highly recommended if you’re in the Rochester Area.

Accidents Will Happen

Unfortunately accidents do happen, and when they involve your teeth you want to go somewhere where the dentists have experience in these matters. At University Dental Associates we have not only been taking care of our current patients in these times, but for the past 25 years we have been the practice that treats Oakland University Athletic department needs. When there is a sports related injury at OU we are the office that gets the call to provide the emergency services. This has given us the opportunity to provide for and gain experience in these complicated cases.
