What our patients say about us!

I got a bouncy ball! I want to be a dentist when I grow up.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Lufburrow since I was a young kid. After college and moving back into the area, it was an easy decision to come back. My kids are now 3rd generation patients.

The staff at River Dental is top-notch and the facility is beautiful-definitely the nicest dental office I have ever been in. Dr. Lufburrow takes the time to answer any questions and to educate on different concerns/areas that need improvement. Best dental office around!


Best dentist around. I come all the way from Florida to have my dental work done at River Dental.
