Kristin was WONDERFUL as a dental hygienist. I hope she remains with NRD. I couldn’t ask for better service. It was also great that she set up Dr. Steinberg to review my x-rays and see me for the last time before he retires. I have been a patient since 2003 and I am sad to see Dr. Steinberg leave – the whole organization has been like family all these years. God Bless everyone who remains with NRD. Thank you for excellent service.

I have been going to North River Dental probably 18 years. They are great and always make me feel comfortable since I am a very anxious patient prone to “white knuckle syndrome “ lol. I definitely recommend them anyone who needs a great dentist

I went to another local dentist and they couldn’t schedule my cleaning for 6 months and even cancelled my appointment months before it was to even happen! Found this place and they got me in so quickly and the staff was so patient and accommodating. Scheduling is so easy and they are quick! I’m so happy to have found them!

New to North River Dental. Broke a tooth. They got me in the next day, put a temporary crown in, and now waiting for the permanent one. The staff and dentist were friendly, thorough, and efficient. The cost was lower than they originally quoted me, so they are honest too. So far, so good!

I’m not a client of North River Dental,instead I’m apart of their extended family. This is how I feel about the staff,and the quality of care exceeded the 5 stars. That’s why I constantly recommend it to family and friends.

I had bad experiences as a kid going to the dentist and I have anxiety when I go. So I stayed away from dentists. Needless to say my teeth got bad as I aged. I needed dentures and I went to North River Dental for implants and I was quite anxious about the procedure. The dentist and staff were very understanding and explained the process to me. My fears soon left as the procedure was painless and the outcome was great. It’s been 3 years since I had it done and I’m glad I chose the folks at North River.
