Dentistry reviews in Arcata

    Unbelievable experience. I was terrified, but I was welcomed with a hug and made to feel the staff cared and was there to help me. The best dental office visit I've ever experienced, bar none. Awesome on all levels!

    Dr. Epperson and his staff are professional, friendly, caring and competent. I have never had to wait very long for my appointment even when slight emergencies have come up in the office. They are great with my whole family!  I trust Dr. Epperson to do good work and to give an honest assessment of what needs to be done and what can be delayed.  They are flexible and the office is managed extremely well.

    The staff here are very nice and efficient. They are very understanding of people who have a fear of needles. Dr. Awwad is very nice! He checks in with you throughout the procedure to make sure you're doing okay.
    While you get your teeth cleaning, they have a nice selection of music that they play. I choose jazz and it was very relaxing.
    Getting an appointment can take weeks... sometimes months. Plan ahead and don't cancel appointments.
    The office condition is somewhat poor. They have carpet in the dental rooms and much it is stained and looks dirty. It's hard not to notice when you're sitting in there waiting for the novocaine to set in. I honestly don't care, but I think it's worth mentioning.

    I thought that she did an excellent job and was very caring and considerate of my well being during the procedure. Any questions were answered and everything was explained before hand. I would recommend her.

    The office staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, from my very first phone call through both appointments. As with many healthcare providers in Humboldt County, they are booking new patients several months out, but without my even asking, they reviewed their calendar for any cancellations and were able to fit me in sooner.
    Dr Mellon is wonderful -- very warm and personable and relaxed; he took time with me and did not rush or flit back and forth between patients. My hygienist was also great -- thorough, professional, and kind.
    No guilt trips and no pressure to have my teeth whitened. Just professionals who are also nice people, and who treated me with respect and warmth. The atmosphere is friendly and authentic, in contrast to many dentist offices that are relentlessly cheery or dour and humorless. I highly recommend this office.

    My Dad was a dentist and this office is first rate.
    No pressure. They take care of insurance billing. Always get you in if it is important. Actually a delight to go to the Dentist.
    My wife also uses these guys and we love the whole crew.

    The office staff was very welcoming and running very on time- in fact they called to tell me that they were ahead of schedule and that I could come in a little early if I were available to do that. Dr. Taylor was very warm and friendly. His presence is calm and reasurring. He was very concerned that I not feel any discomfort and really took his time when providing local anesthesia. His assistant also demonstrated concern for my comfort and both were very good about explaining what they were doing before they did it. I am a coward when it comes to dentists-I've had a lot of trouble with my teeth and have had my share of bad dentists. I never felt the need to explain this to Dr. Taylor because he was so on top of it already. The procedure was totally painless. Dr. Taylor decided to add some tooth colored filling to the bottom of the tooth-it was too big of a chip to just smooth and not quite big enough to cap. He did such a fabulous job of matching the color and reshaping that even I cannot find the line where my tooth ends and the filler begins. When it was over I realized that he did not know that I was seriously considering giving his practice a try. I can't believe he was so nice to someone he thought was just coming in for an emergency repair. Needless to say I have scheduled a regular exam and a cleaning appt with one of his dental hygientists.

    They are very friendly and they have an excellent hygienist. They are competitively priced. The only difficulty is trying to get an appointment. They have to schedule general cleanings far in advance but you can get in right away for emergencies.

    I was referred to him by another person and I have been seeing him for about two years. He is a really good dentist. He is very professional and the office environment is very good. He took me in when I had an emergency. The staff is very nice; they were willing to work with me when I had to pay cash for the dental work. I would definitely recommend him.

    Services performed were for my 19-year-old son on this day. Dr. Epperson called me on his way out of town from the airport to discuss best options for my son. I was very impressed that he took the time to do so. Dr. Epperson also is very effective of presenting options, making recommendations, and letting me make the final choice without pressure. I've seen Dr. Epperson for over 5 years for cleaning and checks and have always been happy with my experiences in his office.
