Anxiety-Free Family Dentistry

From Scheduling, to Your Visit, to the Financials
We Take the Fear Out of Going to the Dentist

Since You’re Family, Well Take Extra Good Care of You

the family-friendly Dental clinic of Ramsey

Most people dread going to the dentist for a variety of reasons. We understand your fear, so we focus on finding solutions for your anxiety to provide stress-free dentist visits. That way our patients feel confident, cared for, and pain-free. You see, when we take the stress out of going to the dentist, our patients become family and our family gets healthy.

 

At River’s Bend Family Dental, we know that you want to feel cared for, healthy, and anxiety-free. To make that happen, you need a dentist who understands your fears and does everything they can to remove fear and replace it with comfort and confidence.


The problem is, traditionally, just about everything associated with going to the dentist has been stressful which can make you feel so anxious that you skip going to the dentist altogether. We believe that everyone deserves stress-free dentistry. That includes freedom from anxiety caused by confusing insurance coverages, weird fees, fear of pain, and uncaring doctors.

But just call me Andrea

I get it.  Going to the dentist isn’t high on anyone’s list of fun things to do this week.  Having someone prod and poke around in your mouth is uncomfortable.  It just is. But because of the way we approach our relationships with our patients and their stressors, many patients actually look forward to their visits with us. It’s true!  We just do it different here. I grew up around doctor’s offices (my parents were technicians at Mayo).  I’ve seen patients treated like, well…patients, and I’ve seen patients treated like family.  The patients treated like family were the patients who thrived.  So that’s what we do at River’s Bend.  That’s why we call it “Family Dentistry.” Our practice has been building relationships for over 20 years.  I joined the practice in 2018, after graduating with distinction from The U of M, bringing with me modern techniques and new technology.  I love to make my patients (family) feel better and live pain-free.  Because you are family, we care enough to be transparent about financing, direct about your prognosis, and fanatical about making you feel better, now and forever. We hope to be part of your family for life.

Alicia is so gentle cleaning my teeth and... very pleasant to talk too. Dr. Johnson always makes sure she covers all the details, and has a nice gentle manner as well. They also tried to give me other options that weren’t as expensive to try first, which I appreciate. It is so hard to find a good dentist that you feel comfortable with, and I loved Dr. O.

After a more than disappointing interaction/appointment with Aspen Dental, I opted to support a more local dentistry instead and came to Rivers Bend FDC. What an incredible and attentive staff! Every... part about my visit, from email inquiry to phone and email communication/customer service to in-office exam and cleaning was phenomenal. The team walked me through every step of what they were doing, while they were doing it, and helped me set-up a treatment plan that was concise, fair, thorough and exactly what anyone seeking dental care and work should receive. Could not recommend this place or this team more! Thank you all so so much!read more

Why I Should Find A Local Dentist Near Me

If unsure about making the switch in dentists here are some considerations to think about:
If you’ve just moved to the area it’s a great time to ask your local neighbors who they see or recommend in the area. A big win if they are located conveniently where you go dining, grocery shopping and run errands in your day to day.

A great place to start is by reading online reviews. Google, Nextdoor, Yelp are all great resources. What many of your peers say can give you a clue of the overall experience given by the practice. Pick up the phone and call the office. See how pleasant the conversation is. Was it easy to make an appointment? Do their hours work conveniently with yours?
