What They Say

Julie L. – Patient since 2020

“We moved to the area about two years ago and needed a new dentist. Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Coats were recommended to us by several people, and we are now recommending them to others! We’ve been very pleased with the scope of services offered, as well as the knowledge and professionalism of the staff.”

Dylan W. – Patient since 2020

“Ferguson and Coats is by far the best dentist office that I have ever been to. Most people usually dread a visit to the dentist, but here they go above and beyond to take care of you and make you feel comfortable. The front desk is always extremely helpful, and the hygienists are thorough and friendly. Dr. Coats does a great job explaining and performing any necessary procedures, and everyone always does their best to make the visit as enjoyable as possible.”

Brian H. – Patient since 2016

“Ferguson and Coats is Starkville’s best choice for dental care. The staff are incredibly friendly, and Dr. Coats is knowledgeable and professional. I wouldn’t go anywhere else but Ferguson and Coats.”

Gabby D. – Patient since 2014

“Exceptional dentist! I had always been self-conscious about my smile. Recently, I got two beautiful front crowns, and now I can’t stop smiling! Dr. Ferguson made sure the whole process was smooth. They look so natural! He has been my dentist for quite a few years, and he has always gone above and beyond to make sure I understand what I should do regarding my oral health. He takes pride in his work, as he is a perfectionist. This is what I want in a dentist. Additionally, his staff is extremely friendly and super professional. I highly recommend Ferguson and Coats General Dentistry.”

Sonya P. – Patient since 2022

“I am a new patient of Dr. Ferguson’s and recently had my first visit. I had an excellent visit all around! When I arrived, I was greeted by a sweet lady named Sherry at the front desk who got me checked in and established as a new patient quickly. My hygienist, Melanie, did an awesome job as well and explained every step from X-rays to cleaning. Dr. Ferguson was very personable and extremely diligent! I couldn’t have asked for a better visit!”

Cheryl J. - Patient since 2010

“Too many reasons why Ferguson and Coats is the best dental office in the area! The office staff, including doctors, hygienists, assistants and receptionists, provide excellent patient care. Everyone in this office is professional and friendly, very personal service. They have always communicated with me during every procedure, going to great lengths to make me comfortable and relaxed without pain. They definitely deserve a five-star rating!”

Bob C. – Patient since 2013

“From my first filling years ago, to my most recent check-up and cleaning with Dr. Coats, Ferguson and Coats has been a place I’ve always felt welcomed and treated with respect. My entire life, visits to the dentist (and all doctors) always made me a little nervous. But after some tooth pain nearly 10 years ago forced the issue, I made an appointment with Ferguson and Coats on the recommendation of a coworker. Thanks to their care, I not only have a healthy set of teeth, but any nervousness I ever felt about stepping into the dental chair is gone. I have since moved out of state, and I still schedule my checkups around visits home to Starkville so that I can keep my teeth in the care of the entire staff at Ferguson and Coats. I would – and have – recommend them to anyone.”

Laurie P. - Patient since 2013

“Wesley Ferguson has been my dentist for almost ten years, and I can’t say enough good things about him. He is caring, intelligent, knowledgeable, personable and most importantly, meticulous about his work. It is clear that he strives for excellence, and that is a quality I recognize and appreciate. Dr. Ferguson has won my trust and my utmost respect, and I highly recommend him!”

Leon and Peggy C. - Patients since 2014

“We moved to Starkville eight years ago from a rural area of Mississippi with limited choices for dental care. With dental problems we did not even know we had, we were very fortunate to find Dr. Wesley Ferguson. Dr. Ferguson assessed our dental needs and made recommendations. We have been his patients ever since. Dr. Ferguson is very diligent in his work and seeks perfection with the highest quality of dental work achievable. The entire staff at Ferguson and Coats is very knowledgeable and caring. We highly recommend Ferguson and Coats for your dental care.”
