I’m Dr. West and I’d like to personally invite you to explore what makes our practice unique and special.

Garden Spot Dental Care

About us.

Dr. Daniel C. West opened up his first dental practice in Terre Hill with his wife as his only employee. After growing out of this Victorian home renovated into a dental office, the practice moved to New Holland across from Garden Spot High School in 1995. In 2017, the practice made its final move to the former Sportsman’s Shop location in the center of New Holland at 101 West Main Street. After extensive renovations, we now are pleased to offer a state-of-the-art, yet welcoming, dental office. In 2020, Dr. Alessio Scott joined the practice giving us access to added services and availability for patients who need early morning and evening visits.

We are pleased to serve patients of all ages, from birth to age 103! Garden Spot Dental Care offers a full range of services, from non-mercury fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, oral surgery, and root canals. Additionally, we offer a full range of oral hygiene and prevention services and cosmetic solutions such as smile whitening and veneers. Our mission is to provide optimal, ethical dental care in a pleasant, clean, and state of the art environment.

Video Testimonials

Our patients say.

“I'm giving this review in complete sincerity. GS Dental is the best dental office in the surrounding areas. You will not find nicer, honest, and thorough doctors and there staff. The office is clean and plenty of seating area. They have an area for your children to play so they don't grow restless and you won't find more accommodating doctors anywhere. If I could give a 10 star I would and we'll deserved.”

“Had my first visit yesterday, from the time I entered to the time I left, every person I came in contact with was extremely nice and professional! I needed to have a procedure done that I was not scheduled for and they were even able to fit me in. Doctor Scott was great, super nice, professional and informative on everything I needed to know. The place was spotless and organized, and even very modern and the technology was very impressive and up to date, so glad I picked Garden Spot Dental Care when I decided it was time for a change from my previous dentist.”
