I was very apprehensive about visiting this practice. I just recently hit 65 and Desert Gateway Dental Group was the chosen vendor for me so I really did not know what to expect. My first visit and treatment was done in a courteous, efficient and professional manner. My current condition was explained by the dentist and the dental hygienist Jennifer was excellent. I would recommend this practice for anyone needing dental work. The office is spotless and the equipment is high tech.

From the moment I called to the moment after my oral surgery, this office has truly been amazing. My wisdom teeth were causing me so much pain. Your team recognized that and was able to fit me into an appointment the very next day ! The girls that took care of me before my surgery were just amazing, I didn't even know the surgery was over when they woke me up. Your team truly did an amazing job ! Thank you so much.

i wasn't prepared to start procedures, but it was nice to have that option. office was very busy so i was there from 1:pm to 5:30 pm for picture update, last ones taken approx. i year ago, exam with consultation, (options, etc), 2 crowns. waited about 25 mins. between each part of visit. office was very busy so i did not have full attention of staff. but, as i am a retired medical receptionist, i know that this is sometimes unavoidable.

As a new, and emergency patient on December 23rd, I was welcomed, never made to feel they were rushed and treated like you would hope to be treated in any business you were to NEED! I was so pleasantly surprised, that I called my daughter, who is a dental assistant in Tennessee and told her that hopefully her office was as considerate. After all, dental work is neither fun nor inexpensive and to feel that you are appreciated and welcome goes a long way to making you more willing to get the things done that should be done for your health, not just the things that MUST be done. Thank you Desert Gateway team. And Merry Christmas!!

The only problem I had was in the X Ray chair. I have "gag reflex" and had a horrible time when the technician put the large cardboard films into my mouth. Full mouth X Rays, with a lot of discomfort. Not much compassion given.

My only dissatisfaction is that all of the needed dental work was rolled into one appointment, making me late for work. I had planned on one or two crowns, but had veneers begun as well. While this is partly my responsibility, I do feel that it would have been better if this one visit had been split into two - also because the pain was intense when novicaine wore off, and I had to work until 9 p.m. that evening. I am glad to have the veneer process started, but in retrospect wish I had been more vocal about wanting separate appointments. Dr. Art was great, and the entire staff was as well, just one little dissatisfaction.

I felt like I was in a car dealership trying to be sold upgrades and options when I was being told about procedures I needed. I sure you will agree that No patient should ever compare your business to a,car dealership but that is how I feel. You need to modify how you present needed procedures. It not what you say but how you say it.

Office let me play with their Lego pieces which was nice. None of the ladies working there looked a day past 24 years old. Receptionist, Jen, was great and respectful throughout the whole transaction. The hygienist will always hold a special place in my heart because she's the only women that I had not been dating that I allowed inside of me. Overall great experience. Would recommend to anyone be it friends or family, even strangers. 17/10 experience.

I think it was too long an appointment, with too much done at one time. I'm still feeling the effects the day after. Plus, I think that the novocaine triggered a nerve or something in my nostril, so had a sneezing reaction, which caused alot of stuffiness, which, in turn, caused me to feel like I was choking. My nose is still tickling today, and is still runny. But I am grateful to get this work done. It was sorely needed. Thank you.
