I'm surprised your hygenist doesn't give freebies to the patient, i.e., toothbrushes, small toothpaste tubes, floss, etc. My other hygenist does! She seems more interested in measuring the pockets than cleaning and polishing teeth!

My needed treatment was delayed somewhat due to my choice to request this office. I remain pleased that I did that. I would like a faster response from my insurer to be able to proceed faster, also would like this contracted dentist to have more days in this office. All in all, very pleased and feel I was at least given some options and an optimistic view of possibly saving teeth. I appreciate that. No real inquiry was made as to the amount of pain current condition causes and that might have been appropriate as it is constant and interferes with eating and quality of life.

Dr. Phi was very kind and patient. He answered all questions I had and explained the benefits and drawbacks to each treatment option that was considered for me. Everything from snoring to a poorly sealed crown was discussed. The staff that assisted him was very kind as well, everyone from the young lady who took X-rays to the benefits coordinator. My whole family will be seeing Dr. Phi from now on.

Carin (I apologize if I have misspelled her name!) at the front desk was amazing!!!! And the Oral surgeon and his assistant were absolutely wonderful to me throughout the treatment! I used to be terrified of the dentist and now I love going just because everyone at this office is so extremely polite and helpful all the time! I can't wait to bring my two young son's in so they can get there teeth checked out by this office also. I am a very happy and satisfied patient and can't wait to see what they have planned for me next... I know I still have a ton of work that needs to be done and I'm finally not scared anymore thanks to this wonderful team of people!

Phi Huynh, DMD, is a professional who is dedicate to helping patients with dental emergencies, general preventative care, and specialized custom services (e.g., crowns, bridges). Dr "Phi" (as he likes to be called) is very personable in his approach to patient care; you never feel like he's rushing you or that you're just a number. His good humor is an added bonus that will surely bring your smiles! This man alleviated my long, sustained pain that I was having and he did it until late in the evening. This is a caring Dentist, with a caring team. I highly recommend this dental practice to the community.

Great dentist. However, as I was getting my treatment, I noticed some dental assistants were not very friendly nor respectful to the dentist. Also, these assistants need to smile more to the patients as they're walking by.

I was very satisfied with the service, and the whole staff team was extremely polite and professional. The dentist suggested wisdom teeth removal and orthodontic treatment; I plan to undergo both processes later on when I believe its appropriate for me to do so. The dentist and dental hygienist seemed passionate about their professions. Even though my visit took longer than expected, I was very satisfied with the end result, and I plan on being a regular patient as long as the service level remains the same.

After having a bad experience with another dental office, I was a little nervous going to River Lakes. When I first walked in, the style and cleanliness of the office made me feel ALOT better. I felt very comfortable. I don't remember the name of the Dental Assistant who did my X-Rays but she was AWESOME! Having dental x-rays done isn't my favorite thing, but she sure knows what she's doing. Quick, effortless and very friendly. She should get a raise!!! :) Thank you!

The only thing I was not happy about regarding only one visit was that the computer system did not show my appointment when I arrived. The good thing is that the receptionist was very helpful. She talked to my dentist and they were able to get me in very quickly to be seen for my 6 month check up. All the staff is great! The care they give their patients is great! I would like to thank them for being very professional and helpful even when there has been a mistake, they always find a way to make you feel comfortable. Great job!

Everyone was very nice & professional. I had a minimal wait time once I arrived. After my X-rays were taken, the doctor was very prompt in coming in to see me.

Orthodontist and back office staff was amazing. Unfortunately, I can't express the same for front office staff. At the beginning of my treatment, staff was not friendly and I was dissatisfied with customer service. However, once Dr. Ferreira had his own office, it was some what better. If it wasn't for Dr. Ferreira and back office staff, I probably would have not returned to continue treatment.

A conversation about not having enough time for my procedure because I was booked incorrectly. It kind of made me feel bad but in all reality, Ive been to appointments where I've had to wait because clients procedures took longer than supposed to or the office was running behind. Just the conversation being had in front of me was a little unprofessional.

Office staff very friendly and the cleanliness is great overall I was treated well. My only concern was the explanation of benefits it took 4 different people to try and explain what I need to be done and fees. I would have prefered for it to be explained to me in detail one on one to have a fully understanding of my benefits still confused.

Everyone at your facility was extremely kind and helpful. I was overwhelmed by the wonderful service and sensitivity to my situation. I know dentists do not typically prefer to have pregnant patients, but your office decided to help me anyway. After breaking a tooth in half over the weekend, your office got me in on Monday and treated me completely. I have had many poor experiences with dentists in the past and I was relieved to have finally found a group that is compassionate and caring.

I had to take my 3 year old son in for his feat appointment and was very satisfied with how gentle they were with him. I loved how the dentist told him what each tool was and how he would use it. My son was given a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss...he just used all his floss the other day and told me "mom we need to go back to the dentist for more floss.". So thank you to everyone at Riverlakes dental for making it a great experience.

The office is great except the day I was there, which was my first visit, they did not have enough dental assistants so the dentist was alone. I had suction bent and hanging on my cheek because there wasn't anyone to hold it. Also, the dentist did my cleaning, not a hygienist. I do not like that. When I said something about it they said she focuses only on people with really bad gums. That's ridiculous. A dentist doesn't have the time or desire to clean people's teeth, a hygienist will almost always do a better job. Mostly a good experience, but those are the things I would change.

I don't like going to the dentist but I thoroughly enjoy the friendly employees at Riverlakes Dental Group. They make going to the dentist much less aggravating by being timely, polite, and establishing a personal relationship with me just by talking about my work and relating to it. I have have had 3 dentists since being a patient there and all have been exceptional but my dental hygenist is my favorite by far. I have referred many people and will continue to do so!!
