I had the best experience with having my teeth cleaned. The staff is very nice, professional and helpful. Stephanie cleaned my teeth and took X-rays and I swear this is the first time I haven’t felt any extreme pain or discomfort throughout the entire time I was there. Seriously I’m a guy who avoids Dentists like no one’s business but they truly are top-notch! Dr. Ryan is also amazing and I’ll be back soon for another cleaning even though I’m moving outta state. That’s how amazing my experience has been with this company!

My 2 and 5-year-old girls had their teeth cleaned and had a wonderful experience. My 5-year-old said it was her best time yet at the dentist. It was the first dental visit for my 2-year-old and not only was it tear-free but she opened her mouth when asked and was able to have her teeth flossed and brushed. Fantastic dental hygienists - gentle and kind with my girls and Dr. Ryan was great with my girls too.

All the office staff, assistants, and Dr. Ryan are amazing. Caught a very early infection my 1st time in before I even had symptoms. I am so pleased saved me from possibly much worse. They are gentle and caring. Recently they got me in the same day to take care of my crown that popped off. I appreciate them so much. I’m so pleased to have found them.
- Mary E.
They are so kind and caring to your needs, willing to do anything for your comfort and needs!!! I can't wait to go back to get the rest of what I need done... That is not something iv ever done, said, or been excited about. Thank you, Dr. Ryan and your wonderful staff for making me want to smile again.

The environment in this office is amazing the staff is fantastic and they do not judge you based on what your previous dental history is. I could not ask for a better office to go to or better staff to work with they teach you better ways to make your oral hygiene more efficient. If you have ever felt judged at a dentist's office or felt uncomfortable this is the place for you because there is no judgment and just education for you to have a healthier way of life and save your teeth. Thank you Bookcliff Family Dental for everything you have done for my family and myself to have more confidence and for a truly enjoyable experience.
