Mike Dougherty

Great staff and professional treatment

Ken Dieffenbach

Wonderful professional office staff, dental assistants and amazing dentist! They also have a lot of patience with their patients. Would highly recommend to family and friends.

Ellen DiTusa

He and his staff are kind and care about each patient. His knowledge of his profession is outstanding. I was new in town and had a dental emergency. It was my lucky day when I called his office. He said to come in right away and he took care of my situation with compassion. He has been my dentist for decades now and has rebuilt all my teeth and never caused me any pain nor any complications whatsoever. He and his whole friendly and efficient staff are 5 star quality and always go above and beyond for their patients.

On a Thursday several days before going on a ski trip to Colorado I broke a tooth. Upon walking into Dr. Markgraf’s office, they were able to schedule an appointment for Monday afternoon, which they keep open for emergencies during “season”. The break in the tooth was too severe to save. He was able to remove the broken piece and smooth the sharp edges so I would be able to go skiing and have the tooth removed when I returned to Punta Gorda. The ability to get an emergency appointment in a couple of days rather than a couple of weeks is outstanding. Dr. Markgraf’s quick response for his patient’s needs is noteworthy.

Tony Licata

Absolutely the best!

Jan Moore

Great Dentist and office. Took time to answer all my questions. Everything with the office is very professional. I would recommend this office to anyone. No pain with all the work I had done.

John DiTusa

Dr. Markgraf and his staff are awesome. Always friendly and professional. You never have to wait in the waiting room either. Glad to have found this dentist so close to home.

Nancy Bundy

When a dentist (me) needs to find a new dentist, where does he go? My experience with Dr. Markgraf met and exceeded all of my expectations. He did not know I was a dentist until late in the first encounter. He and his staff hit all the marks for me. His facility and technology are top notch. The staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Mike has a confident yet gentle touch. He gives painless injections! I have recommended this office to neighbors and friends. You will appreciate his thorough examination and practical recommendations. Needless to say, I am happy to be a patient in this office.

James Tonn, DDS

I highly recommend Dr. Markgraf and his staff of friendly, dedicated professionals. Everyone I’ve met there has been caring and welcoming. They explain procedures and ease my anxiety about whatever dental work I’m having done – that, in itself – is a major feat.

Sharon Walker

I have been a patient of Dr. Markgraf for over 16 years and he and his staff are very efficient and patient-centered. He is the best dentist I have ever had. I highly recommend him.

Carol Duncan

We just moved and I needed an emergency appointment. I was fit in within 2 hours and was really impressed with the treatment, full description and rates along the way. Office staff is extremely pleasant and efficient. This will now be our regular dentist

Ellen Stevens

Dr. Markgraf has been the “keeper of my teeth” for the past 10 years. My experience with him and his staff has been one of quality, thoroughness, and patience. His knowledge and skill demonstrate his expertise. I recommend him without reservation.

Sylvia Shirley

When you keep going back somewhere they must be doing something right. My family has been going there for quite a few years. Everyone and I do mean everyone on the staff is great. Very professional and very informative yet very friendly. You don’t have to ask very much. The results are very well explained in detail. Try them. I think you will smile!

David Oliver

I have gone with what I have come to know is (IMO) the best dentist in PG by far. He has done everything to finish up my serious issue with the old crowns falling out and the need for implants, etc. He is Michael Markgraf. He has corrected a few things along the way that my old NC dentist messed up. He explains what is needed and why. He has excellent dental assistants. His wife Kathy is the office manager.

Tom Drolet

I switched to Dr. Markgraf after having an unpleasant experience with another dentist in the area. Dr. Markgraf took his time to understand my previous experiences as well as my goals for treatment, he came up with a plan that works for me. The staff from the front office to the treatment area are pleasant and take the time to talk to me about what is occurring.

Dennis Sullivan

What a great dental practice!! The staff at the front desk are kind, polite, proficient, and professional. The office environment is very pleasant!! Seems the most updated technology in dental care is being used. Dr. Markgraf explained everything to me to a “T” and told me each step he was taking before proceeding. Really liked his assistant and my hygienist!! Think I will be a long time patient here!!!

Holly Zuczek

I am a snowbird and Dr Markgraf was recommended to me by a friend that lives here. I became a new patient by having my teeth regularly cleaned. His hygienist is excellent. Soon I needed him for a severe abscess. Problem was it occurred 10 days before a trip to South America. Somehow he fit me in and got me an endodontist to do a root canal. The tooth finally split and he had to remove it, all before my trip. I since have had him do an implant and also used him for a crown. He is an outstanding practitioner. If I have to have more major work done I will fly down here to have him do it. His entire office staff is professional, efficient, shows great understanding and courtesy. Could not give a higher recommendation.

Dave Higley

Been a patient of Dr. Markgraf for over 2 years. Runs a very professional office and everyone is friendly and customer oriented. Dr. Markgraf is great-very straight forward, professional assessment and recommendations for your teeth, doesn’t try to sell you extra products/services. I have had two crowns and the experience/process was excellent. He is the best dentist I have ever been to!

Bob Bazemore

Dr Mike Markgraf is not only an exceptional Dentist in every way, but he is also a compassionate, dedicated (to his craft and patients) and an honest person. My wife and I have used Dr Markgraf now for almost 15 years with everything from fillings and crowns to annual cleaning. His staff is also highly motivated and skilled. We have recommended numerous people to him over the years, all of whom have thanked us for the referral and have continued as patients. On a few occasions I have needed emergency work done, and without fail Dr Markgraf has done everything he could to accommodate me and to perform the work perfectly. We strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

Erik Hoffer

For my entire life I have been self conscious of my front teeth. Dr. Markgraf is the first dentist to suggest a relatively simple, inexpensive procedure to help correct the problem. No other dentist has ever suggested this to me. I did it immediately and am so happy with the results. He and his staff are very professional and courteous. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I enjoy my visits so much because of the warm interactions with them all.

Debbie Grabau

Dr. Markgraf and his staff are excellent, pure professionalism in every aspect of dentistry. My personal experience has involved everything from whitening to crowns to implants, each of them successful. His conservative approach and his striving for perfection have resulted in better dental health.

Robert Richmond

76 years old and have been to many different dentists. Dr. Markgraf is the absolute best I have known. Just had new bridge work done and am absolutely delighted! And very happy with the staff in general.

Glen Koedding

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Markgraf for 11 years. The front office greets us by name, the technicians are very well trained and remember us as well. Dr. Markgraf listens to our comments and makes recommendations to fix the problem. I think going to him for 11 years says quite a bit about his practice.

Mary Ann Hughes

Even though he is out of network with my insurance I continue to go to Dr.Markgraf. I have used Dr. Markgraf as my dentist for over 15 years. That in itself I believe speaks volumes! Great dentist!

Greg Kalosis

"After 35 years of deferred dental work, Dr. Markgraf presented clear alternatives for dental treatment. He explains precisely what will happen and why. His office is spotless, and he demands perfection. His staff is very professional and equally proficient. It is very easy to recommend Dr. Markgraf to prospective dental patients in the Punta Gorda area."

Tom Schmitz

"I have been a patient of Dr. Markgraf’s since moving to Punta Gorda in 2005. I am very satisfied with his professional care and that of his staff. Dr. Markgraf is thoughtful and thorough in his examinations and recommendations for treatment. He takes a conservative approach to treatment and offers the best options to his patients for their dental care. Many dentists push for extensive treatment which is not always necessary. Dr. Markgraf does not do this, reflecting his integrity. I am very pleased to be his patient and have referred several people to his office."

Carol Kerr

"Thank you for being a dental office I actually look forward to going to."

Debbie Murphy

I’m happy to provide a positive review of Dr. Markgraf. He and his staff are very professional and very good at explaining any problems requiring treatment. There are no surprises and any work is undertaken with an evident confidence and competence. In reality, it is very difficult for the average patient to properly assess the quality of dental work provided to them. The best the patient can hope for is a high level of confidence in the provider and a faith the result is good and appropriate to the situation. I have confidence in Dr. Markgraf and have had good results from the treatment he and his staff have provided.

Tyler Swanson

"The best decision we made when we moved to Punta Gorda almost 15 years ago was to choose Michael Markgraf as our dentist. When you walk into the office you will immediately know you will be well taken care of. Staff is excellent (Kathy and Debbie), hygienists are very well trained and efficient, office is pleasant, and Dr. Markgraf will give you the best dental care ever."

Doug & Arlene Covert

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Markgraf for over ten years. We have found him and his staff to be courteous and professional. We have never had any problems with his office. He has always been willing to explain, in detail, both procedures and costs. I have been to other Dentists in the area (when I have had Dental Insurance) but have not been happy with them for various reason. I have always returned to Dr. Markgraf because he is trustworthy. I might add that the office in downtown Punta Gorda is very convenient to my home.

Mike O Neal

New to Punta Gorda, I needed to find a dentist. My husband had a chipped tooth and when he returned from his appoint with "Dr. Mike" and showed me his tooth, I couldn't even tell it had been chipped-perfection and that is what this dentist is all about. He is easy to talk to, thorough and does a really great job. His staff is super nice too, and the office is neat as can be. Everything is in tip top shape. Thank you Dr. Mike

Kathleen Fosselman

Dental services have always been great. Both professional and honest. There is never a question if work was really necessary as I have found with other dental offices. Entire staff has always been courteous and friendly. I would recommend Dr. Markgraff and staff to anyone needing assistance. I have been a client for more than 5 years.

Dennis Baker


What a wonderful experience. I was so impressed with the professionalism of your employees, Doctor Markgraf. Debbie, Kathy, and Theresa were very helpful… and you, sir, were outstanding. I was very impressed with the time that you took to explain what was wrong…what needed to be done…and how you planned to take of the problem.
I was NOT looking forward to having two teeth, which had been a part of me for a lifetime, being removed, but the experience was nowhere near what I feared it would be. You explained what you planned to do, AND WHY YOU needed to do so. This calmed my fears, and I am very appreciative of that.
You and your staff are a credit to your profession, and a GIFT to Punta Gorda.

Tom Schuckel

This is Jan O’Neal. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Markgraf since 2001, when we moved here from California. He was recommended to us by our realtor at the time, and I’ve been more than satisfied with him and his staff since then. He listens and responds patiently to questions, and always provides several treatment options. I have complete faith in his skill, knowledge, and expertise, and have referred many of my friends, neighbors, and coworkers to him.

Jan O’Neal

We were fortunate to find Dr. Markgraf when we relocated to PG. He and his staff are highly skilled professionals. Their facility is clean, well run, and always offers a pleasant experience. Both my wife and I are 100% satisfied with their services.

Allen Rusca

Dr. Markgraf has been an excellent dentist. I moved here two years ago and was fortunate enough to discover him. His staff is friendly, professional, and helpful, his office is clean and comfortable. He only recommends what you actually need which I truly appreciate. I would highly recommend him.
