    Just got done with my deep gum cleaning with Myala Miela?? (So sorry for butchering your name) she was super nice. I get extreme anxiety and she helped me stay comfortable, … read more offering me a blanket and checking in on me every step of the way.

    It'd been years since I went to a dentist. The care I put in my teeth was beyond minimal and I have a massive sweet tooth. My first visit I was expecting to … read more be told I would be needing to get dentures, I'm 24. I was told exactly what I expected to hear, I was going to need dentures IF I continued to care for my teeth the way I had been. Now at the time I didn't understand how big that IF was emphasized and so I did some serious thinking and decided that the only way I was going to manage to brush my teeth twice a day like recommended was by keeping physical track of both morning and night so I could see it everyday and know what kind of progress I've made. At first I only made it 5 days. Then I missed two full days, two whole days without brushing my teeth. Seeing that on my calendar is my reminder. I decided that I only have to update my physical reminder if I miss a day. I haven't missed one since November 9, 2020. Now imagine looking in the mirror everyday and seeing a not so pretty smile, it's no fun but I'm so glad I did it because without that effort I wouldn't be 3/4 of the way back to the point where I almost have a perfect smile. My two front teeth are being rebuilt on top of over 10 year old fillings and looking like they were my actual fully healthy teeth. I've had whole sections of my molars replaced and I can't even see the difference between natural and filling. This dentist office has given me a brand new smile and I don't have dentures! Last I checked they were accepting new Medicaid patients as that's how I started out. I truly and wholly recommend this office to everybody who wants to be proud to show off their smile again. It doesn't matter what your smile looks like now, if you're willing to put forth the effort to take care of them, then they will match it with phenomenal results.

    I usually hate the dentist but this was easy everyone was helpful understanding and professional. I even need 2 wisdom teeth out and am not too sad.

    I waited to review until after my second appointment as my first was a cleaning and i believe the true test of a dentist comes later with more extensive work. I … read more had a cleaning and went back for a mouth full of fillings and Riverbend was great both times! The 3 hygenists that worked on me were gentle and great at explaining what was going on. They were friendly and welcoming but also good at measuring your level of socialness and adjusting. The team is social with eachother in a way you can tell that they enjoy working as a team but not in a way that detracts from patient care which is a really hard balance to find but they have it down. Dr. Bennion sets this tone which is rare in my experience, He seems very involved in his practice. He is also friendly and good at explaining as needed. He was quick but very thorough And he is skilled or conscious enough that unlike other dentists I was not stabbed or cut by tools ever and he didn't lean on my jaw or rest his wrists on my face which let's be real is the worst thing a dentist can do to someone with tmj like me.
    Another bonus of this practice is a standup xrays so the machine moves around you and it's way faster and way more comfortable than in the chair ones.
    Reception has been accomodating with scheduling and if they can't get you in for some reason they are upfront and really work to find another solution.
    The whole office is handling Covid regulations well and with care, which sets a good example to other patients to also follow them without resistance so I was comfortable.
    Overall a really fantastic choice for a dental practice.
