Patient Review

The entire staff at White River Dental are beyond amazing! I have a pesky wisdom tooth that needs to be removed, so needless to say I am super anxious! But they made me feel so welcome and explained the procedure thoroughly, taking extra time to make me comfortable and put my mind at ease. I'll never go anywhere else & highly recommend you do the same! The office is emasculate and I was only in the waiting room 5 minutes.
