I was very impressed. The doctor, his assistant and a receptionist all stayed 2 hours after closing to finish my work. I also have a chronic pain problem with my head and neck, they were very careful with my issues and provided a towel for comfort.

I had to find a new dentist after 25 years because my dentist merged with another dental group that no longer accepted my dental insurance. Everyone from the receptionist to the hygienist and the dentist were friendly; I felt very comfortable here.

I want to thank Kristin for helping me with the financial arrangements to help me afford my dental work!! Amber was AMAZING I absolutely hate the dentist and after my last experience with other Dentists in your office she made me feel at ease and very comfortable durning my procedure! Thank you thank you thank you Amber, you truly made a huge difference in this experience for me!! Dr Henderson pulled out two of my teeth and I felt the pressure but no pain as I did last time, thank you for being so concerned about me feeling any pain and thank you for constantly asking if I was ok!! It's e day after having two teeth pulled and I forgot I had any dental work done until I felt the whole in my mouth!! Thanks again!!

I usually get excellent care. I come in to get my teeth cleaned every six months. As yet, I have no major dental issues. The only things that concerned me a little on my last visit was that it seemed as though I had to wait longer than usual to see the dentist. The other was that the room was rather cold. But everyone was very courteous. They checked on me and offered me a blanket and water. I appreciate that this office seems open to using new and better techniques.

Very happy with Riverlakes Dental. I switched from another dentist after bringing my grandmother to one of her appointments and seeing how nice they were and how fast it was. I had to wait forever at my other dentist and all cleanings had to be scheduled after your checkup. So it was always 2 appointments every 6 months. Very inconvenient. Riverlakes was fast, I was called right back and my examination was started. No sitting in the chair and waiting forever for the dentist. I was very pleased and referred my husband. He also had a great experience and is very happy we made the change! Now we won't dread the dentist : )

I had been procrastinating for 2 years to visit a dentist because my last experience was not pleasant. The staff at this dental office have earned my trust and given me a reason to smile again. I wasnt able to express just how grateful i am during my visit but the two visits i have had so far has had a positive impact on my life. I know everyone at the office is just doing their job but really they should know just how grateful i am for their services. Everyone is extremely professional. In past experiences at other dental offices made me uncomfortable by forcing unneccesary conversations or coming across as salepersons. That was not the case at riverlakes. Their style fit mine. I can say i will be a loyal patient for years to come and will refer many peoole to this office.

I like my new dentist, Dr. Ray--at least he doesn't see lots of work needed. And, he checked my mouth visually for signs of mouth cancer. No dentist from your office has ever done that before! I am going to have my former hygienist do my cleanings from now on--not at all satisfied with the one at your office.

Dentist explained all my options. Since I wear dentures that are 10 years old and had two broken teeth and needed to be realigned he explained that they can fix my old dentures but long term they will continue to be a problem for me. He showed me my options for new dentures and explained the cost and difference so I decided to go with new dentures. I was very satisfied with my overall experience.

my first contact was with Claudia who took my number and offered to call me back regarding a same day appointment. I din't think she would call me back as I had called 6 other dentist that morning and no one was able to help me. I was surprised when Claudia called me back. she took some information emailed me the questionnaire and we were on our way. I don't remember the front office ladies name that registered us on arrival. but she was also very helpful and she spoke spanish to my mom witch made our visit easier. our over all experience was excellent. so worth the drive across town. and it's all because the 7th person i called that morning actually cared enough to try and fit us in the same day and she actually called me back. BEST NEW PATIENT EXPERIENCE WE EVER HAD FROM BEGINNING TO END. THANK YOU

I had horrible previous experiences with dental offices, and due to lack of insurance in my college years I was very limited on my options. Because of this, I did not go like I should. When I started at Riverlakes, my teeth and gums were on the path to disaster. I never felt judged, nor uncomfortable. No awkward convo with your mouth wide open and spit sucker hanging out. I have been faithful in my check-ups and following my dental plan and am proud to say my teeth and gums are doing fantastic. I would recommend this location to anyone.

I am greeted instantly, taken back on time, treated with my comfort in mind, procedures are explained very well and there is no doubt as to price or treatment. The Doctors are gentle and considerate.
