  • Voted Patient's Choice Award for a Reason!
    I recently switched to Foothills Family Dental after my husband chose to use them. We both find the entire staff to be extremely friendly and easy to work with. They make the whole process of going to the dentist a lot less stressful then other places we've been. And they have fun there, which helps puts the patients as ease (at least it does for me and my husband, who hates going to the dentist!). The hygienists and front office staff are all very nice and both Dr. Richard Pass and Katie, the Treatment Assistant who helped him with my procedure, made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way and that I was comfortable. I am happy I made the switch to this office. Five star rating! Karen H. Read More Testimonials *Results May Vary

    Stacie and the doctor were interested in me as a person. I was surprised how much they remembered about me and my family. Then I enjoyed a pain-free teeth cleaning. The doctor then quickly looked at my teeth and gave an honest what should be done but not what could wait. I appreciate that. Five star rating! Tom H. Read More Testimonials *Results May Vary
