Best dentist I have ever had!!! I recommend him to everyone. His office and staff are so organized and respectful! His methods are very up to date and does great work. My dental assistant that cleans my teeth is so friendly and gentle. I’ve never had such good dental care!
Entire staff is amazing. I had to be seen fairly quickly due to an accident and they were amazing at working on my teeth, referring me out to an amazing oral surgeon and to an endodontist in a very timely manner. I appreciate this team. Very wonderful work. Thank you!
I have been coming here for years and highly recommend this office. The entire staff is both friendly and professional. I have TMJ and they are always patient and willing to work with my jaw sensitivity during any procedures. Attention to detail is spot on.
It’s hard to find a dental office that sincerely cares about its patients. Doctor Vick and his staff truly do!
The office is well organized and everyone is friendly and helpful.
Dr. Vick has a kind, gentle personality which helps me relax. His work is top notch and he will take time to explain procedures and answer any questions you may have.
For anyone looking for an outstanding dentist, look no further than Dr. Vick.
The staff is amazing. Anytime I have had an emergency Dr. Vick has always got me in the same day and has taken care of me. He is gentle and always puts my mind at ease. I didn’t go to the dentist for years because I was so scared of them but Dr. Vick and his staff earned my trust and I trust him to the fullest. The best dentist office I have ever experienced!
I have been a patient at Dr Vick’s office for 35 + years ( Dr Stagis prior to Dr Vick). We moved out of state and I can’t imagine going to any other dental office! His office is immaculately clean, organized, professional and perfect in every way. Jenny cleaned my teeth and still two days later still feel squeaky clean! Her cleaning was so thorough, and covered more than just teeth cleaning. She checked my lymph nodes and all areas for anything unusual. I felt so confident with Dr Vick and his oral exam. Just can’t say enough about this exceptional dental office!
Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety
Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Our team is fully trained to help even the most anxious patients relax and feel comfortable in our dental chair. Over the years, many patients have benefited from our compassionate and relaxing approach to dentistry.
Are there steps I can take at home to relieve dental anxiety?
Before your appointment, we suggest visualizing a positive experience and practicing deep breathing exercises. You can also visit our office at a quiet time, when other patients may not be around. Ask us about this option when you call us to make your appointment. Share any concerns you have with us beforehand. We can even establish a signal for you to use to indicate if you need a break.
Why is relieving dental anxiety important?
Fear of the dentist can be so severe that a patient will not come into the office for decades at a time. Because oral health affects overall health, this person is likely suffering not only in their mouth but also in other areas of their body. It’s important that we find a solution for the fear so that every patient can remain healthy.
