June B., Salem

I am very happy with the care I am receiving from Dr. Wallace.

Rod K., Salem

I appreciate the manner in which Dr. Dick carries on a conversation during the procedure. He explains what he is doing and why. He listens to any concerns and addresses them specifically. He instills confidence in a patient and relieves anxieties. I welcome his conversation and the relaxed way he and his assistant work together. He has a depth of dental knowledge and experience that makes ones visit as pleasant as can be. He also gives the most gentle shots. Dr. Dick does not make one feel like he just needs to get the work done so as to move in the next patient. I am please he as assigned to be my primary dentist.

Annabelle D. Ocuaman, Salem

I'll be honest I was very scared to change dentist again because I've had traumatic experiences in the past, and I had alot of dental work done. I'm from Tualatin, and I recently moved to Salem. I did alot of research when I was shopping around for a new dentist. I've heard alot of great things about Riverbend dental. I was also afraid to go in for a dental appointment due to the pandemic because I don't leave my house unless I have to. The staff are very friendly. and professional this office is very clean I'm impressed. Dr. Wallace is very personable, knowledgeable, and he made me feel very comfortable. He explains everything to me in full details. I had bad anxiety that day he helped calm me down. My first visit was very thorough I've never had a visit like that and it was great. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and safe especially during these crazy times with covid-19.

Ray M, Salem, Or

If your like most and don't like needles this is the place for you, these folks are the most skilled people I have ever had with a needle so much so you will wonder what needle. And the other work they do I feel is top notch, and ever person there is very professional, I've had plenty of time in dentist chair through my life and I have to say this place is the best I have ever been. I'm a out sourced VA patient so if your a Veteran get the VA to send you here you will be so happy and if your not a vet you will be happy also.

Ted Grubbe, Lake Oswego

Great work, very good empathy, all staff very knowledgeable.

Blake Fry, Salem

I have been going to dentists for decades. I have never encountered a better, more efficient, more friendly and caring dental office/staff ever. And I mean ever. I also participated in the new sleep dental appliance, it replaces the CPAP, and it not only saved me from buying a travel CPAP, it’s compact easy to travel with, and has basically killed my sleep apnea/snoring! My hot wife loves it. And I feel less tired, and more refreshed! I actually look forward to my dental visits now.

Jackie H., Salem

Kimberly is incredible! It's such a pleasure having someone so knowledgeable, who also obviously enjoys what they do, help me to care for my teeth. I feel fortunate to have found Riverbend and have Kimberly as my hygienist.

Jodi M., Salem

Riverbend Dental is a great choice for anyone, but especially for those who have anxiety around dental care. Staff is welcoming, gracious, and efficient, and the dentists and dental support team are thorough, warm and friendly, and stellar in their work. I have not felt the sting of a anesthesia needle since I have been going there. If you are looking for a great dental care provider, please give Riverbend Dental a try.

Kyla, Salem

If I could give 10 stars, I would! I came to Riverbend Dental after not taking care of my oral hygiene for nearly 10 years! I was very anxious but was greeted by the most caring and compassionate team. From the front desk to meeting Dr. Aldrich, every person treated me with dignity and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and knowledgable about the work that needed to be done. I have had five appointments so far and my teeth have improved drastically. I also brought my two young kids in for their appointments and both kids were cooperative and engaged - which is an achievement for a dental office! If you are looking for quality care and a comfortable, encouraging environment, look no further. We also got hand written cards welcoming us to the clinic - which was such a warm touch. Good work, Riverbend Dental!

Carolyn H, Salem

My only dissatisfaction is with your billing statements and how payments are estimatedand partial ppayment is taken after services, but when my EOB comes from insurance company, I cannot reconcile the accounts. Sometimes payments are shifted from family accounts. I really like my dental care and the office staff, but I dislike your accounting practices.

After my first appointment, she came up to me and asked how the cleaning went. Every staff are so friendly. I even received a personal welcome card from Dr. Ross. My second appointment was even better. Her hands are very gentle that made me more at ease. Plus they have a massage chair which is awesome! I highly recommend this place to everyone!

Erin B. , Salem

Excellent! I love that you explain everything that is happening. You take the time to smear vaseline on my lips when they get dry. I love that your clinic calls the day after I get a filling to check to see how I am doing.

Beth C, salem

Kimberly is the best hygienist I have ever had. I appreciate how I have the same staff at each appointment who remembers me and my particular treatment needs. Jordan was very helpful regarding the insurance and billing information. Not only do they always interact with patients with the utmost respect and politeness, I appreciate that they interact with each other with professionalism and respect. I and my family have always been very well cared for by all of their staff.

Marla B. , salem

Everyone is always Amazing! Everyone is always Amazing!

Kelsey M. , Salem

Everyone (Babsy, Kim, and the doctors) was extremely friendly, and it made coming in twice in one day seem like it wasn't that bad. The new receptionist was really making an effort to get everything done right the first time, even when she wasn't quite familiar with everything yet.

Lesly S., Salem

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.

Chris W., Salem

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.

Sally Kaltenbach, salem

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!

Lisa, Salem

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. :)

Lesly S, Salem

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.

Catharine, Salem

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

Jordan L, Salem

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!
