★★★★★ 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!!

★★★★★ I have been a customer of American River dental for 20 years. They have done everything from teeth cleanings, braces, teeth whitening, molar removals, tooth chip repairs, fillings etc. they are wonderful to work with! Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ Excellent. Dr. Acheson has been my dental provider for over 25 years. He is without exception the most skilled dentist I have ever had. Due to a poor job done by a dentist when I was young, Dr. Acheson has had to do extensive dental work. I have had crowns, root canals (for which I never had any pain), fillings, extractions, bridges, and dental implants. He's always on time, as are his hygienists. Dr. uses state-of-the-art technology. He referred me to a specialist when I needed extensive maxiofacial surgery, who was also a time-of-the-line practitioner. I have referred other patients to him and they were quite happy with him. My hygienist is also very, very good. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ Great place! Great staff and no up sell! So glad I found them!

★★★★★ Had a great experiance here. I need sedation because of a really bad gag reflex. I went in for a root canal. When I went in the gave me some meds to start the process. All I remember is leaning back in the dentist chair and then waking up at home later that day. Loved It. All the staff is great. Dr Acheson explained everything to me very well before the procedure. Basically I found my dentist.

★★★★★ American River Dental is the best. They are so good at making you feel comfortable while in the chair and they explain EVERYTHING to you. There is no guess work. I agree with the other posts about hidden fees at other offices. They contact your insurance and determine what you will have to pay upfront. No guessing games. They lay out a treatment plan according to that. The best thing about American River Dental is that they are experienced. There are not a whole bunch of Heald College students being trained on your teeth. I recommend this dentist for everyone.

★★★★ The best dental office ever..They not only are great at what they do but they have true compaction towards you as a patient. After seeing several different dental in my area there was always hidden fees or sum crazy bill that would follow. Not here they explain everything and all your options and even have a great payment plan. It really does help when your in need. They are friendly and always make sure your not in pain and talk to you so your well aware of what they are doing.. It's so nice to have them.. I can say I'll never go any place else.

★★★★★ They do all my general teeth cleaning and do such a wonderful job.They have an excellent attitude, and always call several days before to remind. He removed a tooth for me. He is always lovely and they are an excellent firm. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ I just returned from getting a couple of temporary crowns and my mouth is still comfortably numb. Dr. Mike Holm and his crew are terrific. They work well together and did a great job describing to me what was happening and what I should be feeling. Dental work is rarely fun, but they kept it pain-free and, for those who are squeamish, I understand they can do sedation dentistry.

★★★★ I am a happy happy customer. I chose this dental office as a late teenager since it was close to my parents house. And, I knew Dr. Mike Holmes from our family's church at time. I absolutely adore my dental hygienist, Cheri!! I look forward to getting my teeth cleaned just so I can visit and catch up with her :-) This whole office, from the receptionists, to the hygienists, to the Sr. Dentists that oversee all the big stuff are just wonderful people, great environment, etc., etc...

★★★★★ ARD is one of the best dental offices in Sacramento. They have truly professional, sincere staff, and Dr. Riach is a straightforward, talented dentist with exceptional chairside manner.

They have Saturday hours, which has been a convenient bonus for my busy schedule during the week. I have never had any issues with scheduling or billing, and I have never had an excessive wait; ARD is an incredibly well-managed, quality office.

★★★★★ He is very thorough and has a wonderful attitude. He has a great staff and they never keep you waiting. He does a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him as well. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ After a very long hiatus from the dentist (due to a very bad experience)...I started going to ARD a little over a year ago due to wisdom tooth problems. My sister recommended I go there, because she had been a patient of theirs for several years and she always raved.

The staff is very friendly. They always remember my name and always make me feel welcomed.

My dentist, Dr. Acheson, is awesome! I explained all my concerns from the last time I had seen a dentist and he was very understanding and has made sure I don't have a 'traumatic' experience again.

My dental hygienist is awesome!!! Same things go for her...she listened to my previous experience and has been very gentle! She is fantastic! Cannot say enough!

Check it out...your mouth will thank you : )

★★★★ He does IV Sedation Dentistry which is very difficult to find. He puts you to sleep to work on your teeth. He is the guy to go see if you have a phobia of dentists. He can do anything he wants and you won't know it. I hadn't seen a dentist for fifteen years it's fantastic. Rancho Cordova
★★★★★ I've been going to ARD for 22 years and never had any issues. Staff is nice and always will to help. Only issues I've had are all billing related and usually the fault of my insurance changing.
