What our patients say about us
My family has recently switched dental providers and came to Dr. Popes office as new patients. To say we are impressed is an understatement! The quality of care we have received is top notch and the friendliness of his staff makes for a relaxing, great experience! The office is very clean and welcoming and the coffee and cookies are a nice treat! Dr. Pope is patient, caring and always explains things very well! I would highly recommend this office!

Welcome to Southern Dental Group

Welcome to Southern Dental Group and the office of Michael Pope, DMD. We provide high-quality family, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to Somerset, Pulaski County, and Southern Kentucky

A Patient-Centered Approach 

Whether you're a new or existing patient, we want to listen to and focus on your concerns, wants, and needs. This will be foundational to any treatment you choose to receive. We believe part of providing exceptional dentistry is delivering it in a gentle and compassionate way. We genuinely care for our patients and spend additional time to get to know you as a person so we can treat you the way you like to be treated. 

Do you have apprehension about dental procedures? If you do, Dr. Pope describes you with one word – normal. Yes, completely normal. We do not want you to be embarrassed about any dental anxiety because you are not alone. We want you to tell us about it and help us understand how you feel. This information will be very valuable in allowing us to make any treatment you choose to receive as easy for you as possible. 

Convenient and Quality Dentistry

We know that our patients lead busy lives, so when we see an opportunity to make dental treatment easier and more convenient without compromising quality, we take it! We welcome patients of all ages and provide dental care for your entire family. 

By implementing the latest technology, we have eliminated many unnecessary and costly steps in your procedures. We have the latest in digital radiography, significantly reducing your radiation exposure, to assist with an accurate diagnosis. Digital imaging allows your images to instantly appear, shortening diagnostic appointments. 

Dr. Pope also offers CEREC (CAD/CAM) restorations. That means no more temporary crowns while a dental lab makes your permanent crown. We don’t need to take messy impressions, either, because we can scan your tooth and fabricate your crown right in our office – often on the same day! 

A Focus on Education

Dr. Pope values education. That is why he spends numerous hours each year staying on top of the latest advancements in dentistry. This focus benefits our patients because they always have access to the best the dental industry has to offer. When you combine that with Dr. Pope’s expertise and experience, you get a winning combination.
