Dental Care South!

Your Family & Cosmetic Dentist In Tuscaloosa, AL

Here at Dental Care South, we specialize in creating beautiful smiles. Time and time again, we have provided patients in Tuscaloosa and North Hale County with uncompromised care, leaving them with excellent oral health and increased confidence.

Dr. Skalnik and our entire team at Dental Care South pride themselves in the ability to create and maintain a beautiful smile for patients of all ages.


Dentistry You Can Trust

Our Tuscaloosa family dentistry has always maintained a safe environment for our patients. In response to the Coronavirus, the Alabama Dental Association together with the American Dental Association and Alabama Department of Public Health have recommended that dental practices adhere to additional infection control protocols. Therefore, we have made the following changes to help protect our patients and staff:

  • You will be asked to call our office once you have arrived for your appointment. A team member will meet you outside the front door.
  • Our office will communicate with you prior to your appointment to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions before you enter the building and your temperature will be checked.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use before you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, books, coffee station, and so forth as those items are hard to clean and maintain during this time.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • The number of patients in the waiting room will be minimized to maintain social distancing. Only the patient will be allowed in the office at this time. Parents with children who are being treated or a caregiver accompanying an elderly patient will be allowed.

Our Patients’ Response

We care about your dental health and health in general. Check out our patients’ responses to these recent updates and the current state of our Tuscaloosa family dentistry office:

Leslie *****

Truthfully, I wasn’t concerned a bit about going into Dr. Skalnik’s office for my appointment this week. I knew in my heart that their patient’s health and wellness is of utmost importance to the entire staff. As I thought, the staff was incredibly thorough in the prescreening before entering the building as well as taking every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of myself and the staff. I’m so thankful for all their hard work in making sure their facility was safe and clean before and after my appointment.

Last week I was finally able to have a filling repaired by Dr. Skalnik. I was apprehensive thanks to the Coronavirus, but he and his staff had taken every precaution to make sure patients would feel comfortable and safe. I was never worried or concerned during my procedure. So thankful for his professionalism, and the way he and his staff are handling the COVID-19 situation. They exceeded my expectations. Can’t recommend Dr. Skalnik enough if you need dental work or if you are looking for a new family dentist.

Dear Dr. Skalnik

I wanted to take a minute to thank you and your staff for making me feel extremely comfortable during my visit today. It’s so nice knowing I could have my semi emergency procedure today and not have any concerns about feeling safe under the current circumstances. Honesty it felt like any other visit to me. Thank you so much for showing care, concern and professionalism toward me today.

Dr. Joy *****

My family uses Dental Care South and Dr. Grant Skalnik for all of our dental care needs. I recently had an appointment after the reopening of Alabama for dental procedures and hygiene appointments. Dr. Skalnik and his entire staff are going the extra mile to ensure the safety of their patients. All of the health department guidelines were followed to perfection and the staff wore protective gear to put me at ease. Outdoor screening was done on all patients and the staff is screened as well. There was no waiting and my appointment was taken right on time. I have always put great trust in Dr. Skalnik as a dentist, but in these days it is especially comforting to know he and his staff put the safety of their patients first.

I just wanted to write a thank you to you and the staff at Dental Care South. Both of my kids have been worried about getting out during the COVID-19 lock-down. Our first outing after the lockdown was to Dental Care South, and everyone there was wonderful to them. The way that you all are handling the situation by keeping everything clean and getting us from our vehicles is just what we all needed to see to reassure us that we will remain healthy because of the precautions you all are taking for us. You are all amazing people and we consider ourselves blessed to know each and every one of you.
