  • "It’s been more years than I’d like to admit since being to the dentist for a cleaning. I have a bit of anxiety apparently. Dr Thompson and his dental hygienist were so amazing, gentle and thorough. Front desk staff was so incredibly nice. Overall such a pleasant experience. Not sure why I was nervous at all!"
    Sara H.
  • "Hillrise Dental is where I went after not going to a dentist for a very long time. The staff at the desk that greet you, to the technicians, to the dentist, are all very caring, supportive, and very professional. I can't imagine going elsewhere. Their care and concern for you as an individual is evident. What I used to dread, I now actually look forward too."
    Leo C.
  • "As lots of people, I have dental phobia. That's a real thing, right? :) It had been years and years since I'd been to the dentist, precisely because of my fear of them. But from the first visit at Hillrise Dental, Michelle got me a weighted blanket to comfort me while Carmen cleaned my teeth. Carmen was so nice and kept checking to see how I was doing. It was a pleasant visit. Today I had some fillings and the procedure was explained to me really well and then the work was done. I felt anxious when I got there, but Dr. Thompson and his assistant made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Thompson and Hillrise Dental to anyone who is afraid of the dentist. You'll feel better about returning to the dentist after your first visit. If I can do it, so can you!"
    Susan H.
  • "Couple of awesome things going on here. Absolutely awesome and professional staff! Dr. Elliss is a rock star! I was pretty nervous (I always am when it comes to the dentist). He and his staff made absolutely sure I was calm, acknowledged and had me in and out for a large filling in less than an hour. What an awesome experience!"
    Kimberly S.
  • "Dr. Thompson is great! I have extreme anxiety and he was great! The staff is amazing too."
    Samantha H.
  • "I love everything about Hillrise. Nice people, punctual service. Have never said I needed treatments that I didn't need, no extra things added that my insurance doesn't cover. Wonderful!! Thanks!!!"
