Duff Family Dental is wonderful, I love those ladies. I asked one of the Drs about smoking weed and if it would affect my teeth and when I acted embarrassed about the question she reassured me and didn’t judge me at all. Real cool place for a dentist office

Seconding Duff. I’ve had nothing but wonderful experiences there. I had to have a couple cavities filled, which is something I was nervous about because I’ve never had to do that before, and they were awesome. I expressed my anxiety about it, they listened, made sure I was comfortable, and really put me at ease. I’ve never had a better dentist.

I absolutely love Duff Family Dental. The dentist always compliments my eyebrows AND you can choose a flavor for the deep clean gunk they put on your teeth, which, for whatever reason, feels very fancy to me. Everyone is super kind and they're great with kids.

I too will recommend them, very kind and compassionate, and made me feel at ease when I needed some teeth filled. I hadn't been to a dentist since I was a kid, and after realizing I needed to act now, or face serious issues, I decided I needed a dentist. Non judgemental, went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and everyone there seems happy to be there.

Smile Dental on Bennett/National. They really helped me work through my dental trauma and anxiety! They were very patient and let me take breaks, and would never push to far if I felt nervous.

Dr. Papagayo is so kind, my sister has really bad anxiety and I recommended her to make an appointment. She agreed they’re very kind. Let them know ahead of time you have anxiety and they will be very respectful of the issue.

McKeown Family Dental! I absolutely cannot say enough amazing things about everyone I've dealt with there. 110% patient for life.

Dr Saitta on Primrose is good. Been to him for years. They respect my dental anxiety and it has reduced since seeing him.

Randi Green (aka The Smile Doctor). Top notch, very personable dentist who has an eye for cutting edge technologies. Located on south side of Springfield, very close to the old Zio’s Italian restaurant.

Dr. H at Fox Grape is fantastic. Listens to all of my concerns, communicates his concerns, and doesn’t charge me for all the extra Novocain I need (it doesn’t work well on me).

Cons: They don’t take all insurances and he’s a talker. 😄

Bolivar has Dr Gonzales of Bolivar Family Dental if you are that direction or willing to travel

Avoid Aspen Dental though

Aspen dental was the problem for me

I’m sorry you had to deal with them. I’ll never stop trashing their name.


WaywardDeadite OP t1_j3d3glc wrote

Thank you. They chose to go ahead and clean even when the novacaine wasn't working for me. I was crying and the dentist told me to be quiet.


drsideburns t1_j3dta4t wrote

That's horrible. They tried to get me to agree to work that didn't need to be done (replacing a crown that was completely fine)

Sounds like Innovative Dental. Sorry you had to deal with that at Aspen Dental.

I used to go to a small dentist place but the guy retired, the company that took over his business Dove Dental was.... traumatic for me.
They're probably great for the average person, but for someone with lots of social anxiety it was NOT a comfortable visit.

So I'm definitely gonna be looking out for whatever people suggest here, it's been a year since I last went to the dentist and I still feel overwhelmed thinking about that last visit :P
