I was in the chair today for 3 hours (needed some rather extensive work). There was no (zero) pain!!! Nothing hurt - not the shots, not the removal of the previous dental work, not the drilling, not the molds, not the fitting of the temporary crown!!!! I hadn't had time for breakfast before I went in, so they even gave me a smoothie-type of drink to hold me over until I could eat. And, on top of everything else, I got to watch a movie while they worked on me. These people are awesome. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ross for a number of years now and am so grateful to have found her. You are in the best of hands in all your dental needs with her. I can personally attest that her injections are always painless! Staff is super too. Thank you Dr. Ross.

I am a new patient at Riverbend Dental. I have to say am blown away by their staff. They offer flexible appointment options, text alerts, and a phone call to remind you of your appointment! This is really important to me because of my busy schedule. Not only that but they make going to the dentist office fun! They have Pandora to listen to while you're getting dental work done and a wide selection of movies to choose from and I get cozy with a blanket. Some times I'm so comfortable its easy to forget I'm at the dentist. I have sensitive teeth and they always make sure to be as gentle as possible and avoid any pain, which is totally different from my usual experiences that I've had with dentists in the past. I also have to touch really quickly that I feel genuinely educated every time I visit. I know exactly what I'm going in for and what we will be working on going forward. The staff really cares! I am going to be a customer for life! Thank you Riverbend Dental staff! You're amazing!

I had always seen the same dentist in my hometown since i was a child, and was very hesitant to have work done at a new dentist since moving to Salem. I chipped my tooth recently and needed a crown. Going into the appointment i was very anxious, mostly about the numbing injection. Going into the appointment i was told the staff remembered i did not like the injection and was sure not to even bring the injector in my line of sight until it was time to use it. The staff made sure to overly explain everything to me in a way that i was fully capable of comprehending. I have always had a tough time becoming numb, and did not experience this at all during my appointment and the injection itself was 100% pain free! The staff always remembers to use warm water in my mouth due to my teeth sensitivity without me ever having to prompt them. Once the actual work started i felt as though i could just about fall asleep. I highly recommend riverbend dental to anyone!! Im a patient for life. :)

They were great!!! I had a check up, X rays, and a cleaning. They explain everything, and you are given choices in terms of available options. The dentist, hygienist, and dental assistant told me things about my teeth/gums/general state of my dental health that no other dentist had ever mentioned before. They know what they're doing, and they're good at it. AND they give you a blanket when you're in the chair if you want one (which I do since I'm always freezing). I would highly recommend this dental practice to anyone seeking dental care.

holy Kamoley! i just got home from getting my first fillings at Riverbend Dental which i had been dreading for two months... i have had some really painful dental experiences in the past and now have a lot of fear and anxiety about going to the dentist, even for cleanings. Dr. Aldrich and her staff did an excellent job of putting me at ease in the chair today and i can barely express my GRATIDUDE & DELIGHT in words !!! i took the Halcion Rx, as suggested, the night before and prior to my visit which totally helped take the edge off, and when i arrived they got me cozy in my chair and even offered a funny movie with big headphones for me to watch during my procedures as well as a reclining massage chair! score! they also allowed my fiance to sit with me for moral support :) and Dr. Aldrich listened when i told her i prefer extra numbing because of my historically sensitive gums/nerves. AMAZINGLY, i didn't feel a single moment of discomfort through two fillings !! THANK YOOO !! #fabulous

I grew up with Kaiser Permanente, and then tried a few family and "cosmetic" dentists that seemed nice, but after having an exam with Dr. Ross and meeting Dr. Aldrich, I discovered how comprehensive and detailed a dental office should be. I'll never go anywhere else! The professionalism, sincerity, and technology at the office is top-rate. Give them a try!
