Verified Patient Reviews
First of all, I detest going to the dentist. Awful experiences as a child have scarred me into adulthood. Hence, I've stayed away and neglected my dental health. While my smile 'appeared' great, my teeth were in poor health. Turned out, I needed two root canals and fillings. That was not a surprise to me. What WAS surprising was the experience I had with Dr. Sanderson and his staff. He actually had to redo substandard work done by my previous dentist, who did an insufficient root canal and charged me a giant bill for it. I"m usually suspicious about doctors/dentists doing and suggesting work that isn't necessary just to milk my insurance. After Dr. Sanderson patiently gave explanations and answered my many questions, I was confident that he was honest. Dr. Sanderson and his staff were a surprising delight. I appreciated Dr. Sanderson's informative, direct, and professional disposition. That is my experience thus far, and I plan to continue going back.
Had a root canal procedure and could not have asked for a better experience! Hygienists were fast and comforting and Dr. Sanderson is very informative and enthusiastic about his career.
Amazing dentist and staff!! Very friendly office. I had a root canal done and felt no pain at all. I will definitely be using Dr. Sanderson for all my future dental needs!
So nice. Great staff.
This was my first visit and he was very kind and made sure that everyone I'm the office was taken care of in a timely manner! I would recommend him! They took my insurance and it was a super easy and painless cleaning. He did a good job of warming me up as a patient because honestly I hate the dentists office, but he carried on conversation like normal so it made me feel like I was in good hands! Thank you! I'll be back in November!
Root canal and crown - no pain after the root canal, prescribed pain meds and didn't have to use them, the crown was fitted today 1 week ahead of schedule, they pushed to making and fitting of the crown ahead of usual wait time as I work away on short notice, good atmosphere in the office, felt comfortable, appreciate Robert's good nature and above all his workmanship was very good, no pain and I can now drink cold water again!
I had a great first experience with this dentist! I'm usually really nervous, but his great bedside manner put me at ease. And his staff was knowledgeable and professional. He answered all my questions in a way that made me feel that he really cared about the wellbeing of his patients. And when I arrived, I went straight to the dentist's chair! Overall great experience!
Out of dozens of dentists all over the states in my 46-years of life, he is THE best. His caring and skills, the warm atmosphere in the clinic, the transparent and fair charge and some puts him in the top notch domain without question.
This visit was ideal!!!! The staff was wonderful and professional and also Dr. Sanderson was awesome. This was my first time going to this dentist and it will not be my last!!!!
Wonderful compassionate professional care. Highly recommended.
Wonderful experience! Dr. Sanderson has genuine compassion for his patients and takes pride in his work. Will definitely refer him to family and friends!
This was easily the best experience I've ever had at a dental office. Dr. Sanderson and his staff are all very sweet! He greeted me in the waiting room! I am very pleased and I will continue to go to his office for my dental needs.
It's was a very good visit, the only complaint I have is, I left his office in pain with no pain meds prescribed, instead just antibiotics...
I was nervous, because it had been awhile since my last dental visit, but from the front office friendly staff, then to the gentle, but thorough hygienist, to Dr. Sanderson and his welcoming professional, honest demeanor, it was A plus! I scheduled my next 6 month check-up!
He and the assistants were absolutely fantastic. Very homey feeling in his office. They all chatted with me and were incredibly pleasant. Can't wait to go back for my follow up appointment!
Very polite. Knew all his customers by name. Up front on pricing, willing to work with people who are uninsured. Digital x-rays, experienced staff. Staff speaks spanish.
