American River Dental Reviews
Overall Dental Practice Rating ★★★★★ 5 / 5 based upon 71 reviews.
★★★★★ I have to be honest, I chose American River Dental at random. I needed a checkup, did a five-minute Google search and picked the first one that showed up in the search results. After my first appointment, I'm glad I did. Everyone there is so nice, from the secretary--shout-out to Sherry, you jewel of humanity--to the dental assistants to Dr. Hom himself. This is a first-class dentist's office, and I recommend it to anyone seeking dental treatment of any kind. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ I have been coming to American River Dental for 20 years. Everyone is so nice. Sheila and Dr. Riach are the best! Keep up the great work! Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ First time in my life I am not fearful of a dental appointment. Dr Holm and his staff made me comfortable and at ease every step of the way. Dr Holm crafted a partial that fits, looks good, and is comfortable. I was given lots of of Dr Holm's time with explanations and options on selecting a plan that would fit my needs, wants, and pocketbook. Five stars for American River Dental. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ Very pleasant environment and all the staff is friendly and positive. If you ever get Dr. Holm you will not regret it. He is a very kind and reassuring dentist. As someone who gets really anxiety ridden when it comes to the dentist and my teeth, he has a way of making my stay as comfortable as possible without making me feel like an idiot. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ Every person I met was professional and friendly. Love the cartoons on the bulletin board (most are about dentists and teeth). I was asked what I feared most about being at the dentist - a question I have never been asked. I found out I have been doing my teeth cleaning routine in the wrong order. Gave me tools to help clean my teeth better. I have a cleaning appointment set up in two days and I asked if they could call and remind me and they were more than happy to. They have Saturday hours which I hope to not need,but nice just in case. I look forward to recommending this place to people I know.

★★★★★ Dr Holm is my favorite dentist. He and his team truly make you feel like a partner in your dental care. They work together with you to determine what works for each patient. His assistant, Terry, is extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. ARD is your one stop shop for great Dental Care. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ Thanks Karen for your tender care during my recent visit. I had some recent medical problems and Karen took this into consideration and made me very comfortable during the cleaning appointment.

★★★★★ I can not find enough good words to describe my experience at American River Dental. I went into my appointment expecting to pay a bill and was told that it was taken care of by my secondary insurance and I even had a credit. The insurance staff in this office is AMAZING. I have been going here for about 20 years and I never have to worry about billing. Sherry my hygienist is AMAZING I love to go and get my teeth cleaned and I trust her to tell me what changes are going on in my mouth due to new medications and other medical conditions that I have. Dr Riach and the staff are so welcoming and nice. My husband who is afraid of the dentist also goes regularly because he likes the staff and Dr Riach. I would recommend this office to anybody !

★★★★★ I was lucky enough to find this dental office nearly 10 years ago. I have moved countless times, changed jobs, everything.... But I have continued to drive out of my way to keep my hygienist and dentist. I can't imagine going anywhere else. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great dentist.

★★★★★ I have put off having dental work for several years as I have had some really bad experiences. Dr. Holmes put me a ease immediately. I had extensive dental work (I was knocked out the whole time) and I could not be happier with the results. Everyone working here is great. Highly recommend.

★★★★★ Having moved across the country (from the east coast) my husband and I had to find a new dentist. We all know the importance of a good relationship with one's dentist and their staff. After all, our smile is one of the first things we show to the world! It took us awhile…which is a long story…but we feel fortunate to have found Dr. Holm and the rest of the staff at American River Dental. Their genuine concern for patient care and attention to detail makes us feel very comfortable. Thank you Dr. Holm and American River Dental staff for all you do.

★★★★★ I'm brand new to the ARD family. The waiting room & entire facility is comfortable and clean. Gotta say, I REALLY LIKE Dr Riach and the entire staff at ARD. After two 'get to know you' visits I went for my first 'dental work' visit today w/ Dr Riach. I was very very nervous for various reasons. One being, I've had the same Dentist / RDA / RDH for 25 yrs. My dentist recently retired as did the RDA/RDH . They had been through many life changing events w/ me, the good/bad/ugly ~they are tough acts to follow. The transition has been a bit difficult for me, but ARD has been very welcoming & understanding. I will miss my old team very very much, HOWEVER, I KNOW I've put myself in fantastic and capable hands. Here's to a GREAT new dental team and new friends..

★★★★★ I have been coming here my entire life and I wouldn't trust anyone with my teeth other than Dr. Holmes! Also my hygienist is super sweet and has also known me since I was a small child. It's great to see the same faces and have that relationship with someone who's working on you. And people who really care about doing quality work and making you comfortable.

★★★★★ I had been thinking about my appointment all weekend long, petrified about it. I am terrified of the dentist. I had considered sedation as well as nitrous. I turn into a baby when I get in the chair, but now that it is over, I am so thankful that I did! Dr. Holm and his assistants, Terry and Katy, are absolutely wonderful! Dr. Holm is very thorough when explaining what he is going to do, best of all, the shots didn't hurt a bit! It's good being able to have work done, confident in the treatment that is being done, yet cared enough about to get that extra TLC I needed just to get me through the appointment. Dr. Holm is an artist in his craft, and I am so lucky to have found him to get me back on track. I'm actually looking forward to my next appointment now! The fears are hopefully a thing of the past, and I recommend him with 100% confidence. What a wonderful and caring staff.
