American River Dental Reviews
Overall Dental Practice Rating ★★★★★ 5 / 5 based upon 65 reviews.
★★★★★ I have been going to American River Dental for about 7 years. I have had root canals, crowns, grafting, fillings, and cleanings. Dr. Acheson's communications skills are amazing. He explains everything and treats you the way he would treat his family members. The staff is professional and friendly. Hygienists are great. All your treatment under one roof. No going from office to office. Thank you!

I can't say enough about Dr. Acheson and the entire staff at American River Dental. Very convenient hours and love that I can have all my dental needs met in one office. Thank you! Thank you!

★★★★★ I must say, this is the BEST dental service I have ever experienced. My dentist is D.D.S Michael B. Holm. The entire staff is super nice and makes you feel you are in good hands; I am a person who is ' freaked - out ' by dentistry. I need Nitro - etc. for pain. I called 1-800-dentist and was referred here. I saw him today, and Millie sat with me to explain the ' gas ' etc. and booked appointments. The staff at the front counter assures me of my appointments, and I like phone reminders so they do call me. The whole experience is easy and relaxing. If you are a person who gets upset with the average dental treatment, You should come here. It is much nicer. Thanks, Sincerely Jean Jordan.

★★★★★ Guy removed my Special Needs son's wisdom teeth on March 4, 2015. There are good doctors and there are the 'Best'. His gentle, friendly demeanor, relaxed confident tone was over the top fantastic. Our son is a 21 year old Autistic, non-verbal kid and Dr. Acheson followed through with such precision, along with his friendly and helpful staff. Do not go anywhere else, this is your Guy. Thank you for all your special care and communication, it could not have gone smoother; because of your and your staff. Kimberly K

★★★★★ I have major fear of going to the dentist, and so I do not go very often (it had been about 7 years before I went to ARD). From the moment I met Terri (Dr. Holm's assistant) she made me feel very comfortable and explained everything she was doing since she knew I had a fear of the dentist. When I met Dr. Holm I knew I had finally found the right dentist. Not only is Dr. Holm very gentle, but he is very thorough in the exam and explains things as he goes along. He is also a very kind man, which is evident through his treatment of his patients. I have would definitely recommend Dr. Holm and all the staff at ARD. They make you feel comfortable and they genuinely care about their patients! I still have fear of dental work, but I don't mind going to the dentist now :)

P.S.
IV sedation is the way to go!

★★★★★ The best! I'm not a fan of going to the dentist so I'm grateful I found Dr. Riach and Sherri. Been going here for several years. Dr. Riach is very thorough, he listens, and he explains things clearly. To Sherri, thanks for being so good at what you do. You're the best dental hygienist I've ever had. Thanks for always being so friendly and reassuring. You make an unpleasant experience so much easier. Also, the front desk receptionists are always warm and pleasant.

★★★★★ I hate going to the dentist. I have always hated going to the dentist. I still have bad memories of the horrible, gag-inducing flouride treatments I had as a kid in the 1960s; the paid of the palate-splitter, the braces, the retainer; the agony of having wisdom teeth removed; the gallons of blood shed during cleanings as a young adult. As you can imagine, I have never been real good at keeping up with cleanings and exams.

But about two years ago, I got a terrible toothache. Sure enough, decades of grinding and clenching had caused a tooth to crack. And not just one! Over the past couple of years, I've had at least three root canals and substantial related treatment with a number of crowns. This would normally have been enough to have me fleeing the country before they could strap me down and start drilling, but Dr. Riach is excellent with phobic patients like me. I have had intravenous sedation for every root canal, which has been an incredible blessing. And Dr. Riach has been very patient with me on the occasions when I've not been under sedation and seem to wince every time he takes an instrument to a tooth. ('You can feel that? Really?' Yes, really -- and he doesn't doubt me when I say it, even though he's pumped in a fair bit of novocain.)

The hygienists are also excellent, and I've had no trouble at all making myself go in for my six-month cleanings. My mouth is probably healthier now than it's been for my entire adult life to date. I've been fortunate not to have lost any teeth despite all the cracks, and I think that's entirely due to the good dental care I've been getting. In addition, the bite guard I now wear at night is comfortable -- and even my chronic headaches have diminished to an extent since I've been wearing it.

Everyone in this office is professional and friendly. The desk staff in front is always polite and smiling and completely appropriate. Lynn, in particular, remembered my name right from the start, and is kind and easy to work with despite scheduling problems.

I can't recommend ARD highly enough.

★★★★★ I just returned from getting my teeth cleaned and didn't realize until today that they have warm water in the rinse sprayers. If you've ever felt chilled water on exposed dental work, you'll understand how great it is to have the water comfortably warm. Nice touch, American River Dental!

★★★★★ Holm for 30 years and everyone at the facility is kind, compassionate and most of all, competent. You don't want to take chances with your teeth. I've referred friends and family to Dr. Holm many many times over 3 plus decades and every one of them has been very pleased.

★★★★★ I have been going to American River Dental sence 1989. Dr. Anchenson has been my dentist and I have been extremely pleased with all office personel and the cleanlyness and outstanding service they have provided me with all these years. This is still an office where the Dentists and staff are completely involved with providing your dental needs with there best treatment ethically, and professionaly.
You will leave this office knowing you have found an amazing team and have total confidence your in the best hands! I see the same excellant chair side assistants and hygienist that have been there for 20 years or more! When your treated at American River Dental there is a calmness and organized process that gets you in and out with no unanswerd questions and you will have complete clarity regarding your treatment plan they provide. No up- selling over diagnosing or feeling an urgency for emmideate same day treatment!!! Very true!! ( stay away from those offices)!
Best Dental office Id refer anyone too!!
