About Frye Dental Group

Frye Dental Group is a patient-focused, forward-thinking dental office that sees the big picture but notices every detail. With highly-educated staff and innovative treatments, we prioritize patient comfort and dental health, offering the best, most contemporary, mutually beneficial procedures.

Family Friendly and Patient-Focused

Frye Dental Group welcomes patients of all ages for preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental care. Our caring staff is trained to help all of our patients feel comfortable and informed before, during, and after any treatment or procedure. We provide thorough explanations in our office and an extensive patient education library so that all patients’ questions are answered. Every evening we call patients to check in following treatment.


“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
-Walt Disney

Frye Dental Group also does not look backwards for very long. With state-of-the-art equipment, technology, and procedures you would expect to find in larger cities, Frye Dental Group provides superior quality of care in the Marietta area.

Our Dental Health Philosophy

Before we treat our patients, we ask ourselves three questions:

  1. Is it going to be best for the patient?
  2. Is it going to save them money?
  3. Is it going to save them time?

If we can’t answer yes to all three, we don’t do it.
