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. :)


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.

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.

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.
