I found Dr. Dunlop on Instagram from all places, I live few hours away from his clinic so you can imagine it wasn’t easy coming to treatment and coming back every time. Some treatments like my surgery required an over night stay in Fresno so I can make it on time for my 8 AM appointment. I wore a denture for 18 years, mostly due to having seen dentists with no integrity after diagnosed with juvenile periodontitis. What differentiates Dr. Dunlop from the rest are two things (mostly) 1. He has integrity (which makes it comfortable to let him sedate you among other things such as offering ng you the most suitable treatment. 2. He’s offering an in-house lab, now, if you didn’t need a lab before you do not know why it’s so important, price-wise, and comfortable on a whole new level, not to mention the materials and technology invested in his clinic. 3. He’s truly talented. I’m very happy with the results and with the care and aftercare, I received. The doctor and staff were there to help me find a hotel when needed, send medication to my preferred pharmacy. The treatment coordinator was always there for me to go over everything as many times as I needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I had a very wonderful experience with better life center I didn’t think that I was gonna get the treatment, however that change very fast because my financial adviser at better life she made sure that I had the treatment as well as my doctor I couldn’t ask for anything better, and it hit me emotionally because they really went all out for me again thanks to you all, wow my financial advisor is one beautiful angel.

I highly recommend Better Life Dental for implants. I had a full set of upper implants placed by Dr. Dunlop, and his care and expertise really shows! I’m very happy: My teeth look natural and I can finally smile without feeling self conscious. Thanks to the team at Better Life Dental!

FANTASTIC!! Dr. & his lovely staff are even better in person than on Instagram. (And they were FAB on IG!) The minute he came in the building he was there for my consult. (I take at least 5 min to catch up before a client upon walking in) Super friendly, knew EXACTLY what I needed and what I had been suffering from for years with just one look. (Why couldnt 5 other previous Dentists do that!?) His staff is a well oiled piece of machinery, that seem like they excel at their jobs, for and because of, the Dr. (Probably a Rolex part!) More to come upon my return…

Christina S. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fast, friendly and a lifesaver. My surgery date is in October for a dental procedure and I recently had 3 crowns fall off with 2 weeks, 2 of them being in the front 1 day apart. I work in public service and my smile is the first thing people see.  I called yesterday office staff was able to get men in the next day at 4:00 I walked out 2 hrs later with 2 teeth added to my existing partial. The office closes at 5 and they stayed just to get this done. And they did it all with a smile Dr. Ryan Dunlap and staff care about their patients and go the extra mile to make everything ok until you come back for surgery. Thank you Dr.Dunlap and staff

Lizz S. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recommend “Better Life Center”, in my experience with general dentistry, I had an excellent treatment and service from the workers. Also, I want to take the opportunity to thank Mrs. Tami Williams, who did an excellent job of doing deep cleaning on my teeth, she is very friendly and trustworthy. I hope to see her soon, good service!

This is the best dentist in Fresno, I was very scared of the pain for implant surgery, they made the surgery almost painless, I am so happy with my new teeth and they made it a pleasant experience and pain free, from the very first visit they were very respectful and Dr Dunlop is very professional I could not be happier about my experience with a better life Dentistry, thank you so much for fixing my teeth.

Jenny Dermon (Source: Facebook)


The staff is very warm and friendly. The receptionist was helpful and made me an appointment to meet my needs (as a mother of 2 babies!). My hygienist was extremely informative and kind! Dr. Ryan is the best dentist in Fresno! He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and wants the best for his patients. Best dentist office in town!

J C. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this practice!! The whole office is filled with the most professional workers who want you to feel safe and comfortable. I am a full time college student who needed to get in as soon as possible because once I go back to school I wouldn’t have time, they found time in their tight schedule to help me. I got a single tooth implant and let me tell you I’m in no real pain, little sore day one post op but that’s it!! Great prices, great people!!!

Deborah D. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


If there was more than 5 star I would give it to him and his staff Ryan Dunlop and his staff are wonderful. I had several things done and they all are very professional I had implants, tooth extraction, fillings and crowns and the price was amazing, they beat everyone else. Thank you Dr. Dunlop and Staff 🙂 Deborah D

Suzanne B. from Clovis, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been over a week since my implants were delivered/placed. And again Dr D was right on the money. Due to the fact of not having any lower left bottom molars, things took a while to become natural. Like not biting the side of my tongue and cheek, just little things in the big scheme. So my story! I had been let down, over promised, not given complete information therefore making what seemed to be good decisions however in the long run they were bad from several reputable dentists’ in the last 20 years – that happened for 12 years. The remaining 8 years I just refused to go to the dentist, no cleanings nadda! First meeting Dr D, he was very direct, knowledgeable and confident stating his skills with no problem saying where he draws the line. Right there, that spoke volumes to me, and no it’s not that easy to win me over. Together we set a game plan, he answered all my questions on my level and professional. Not as a Dr. speaking down to me with words that left me wondering what the hell are we talking about. Dr D and his entire staff are open, truly kind, compassionate & caring individuals. I actually have felt, they want to know the answers to the questions they ask. Unfortunately that is not found easily, however it is in abundance at Better Life Center for Implant and General Dentistry. I feel I received extraordinary service and if you are looking for a better dental experience, what are you waiting for?!

Hayley B. from Coarsegold, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Dunlap is an excellent dentist. I am so grateful that I can cite my experience with Dr. Dunlap and his staff at Better Life Dentistry. I currently just had implant surgery done. I am one week post-op and pain free. I never had to take any pain medication at all!!! I can’t believe how easy and pain free this process was. Thank you Dr.Dunlap for the great experience and quality work you have done on my teeth. I am ecstatic to have my smile back- all thanks to you!

What a wonderful experience! Everyone treated me like I was their friend and really cared about my needs. I want to get my work done with no one else. My only problem now is the cost.

Andrew M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


My father needed a full mouth restoration with implants and spent nearly a year extensively researching reasonably priced and competent dentists throughout the Central Valley and Southern California. Fortunately, he found Dr. Ryan Dunlop at his new practice in our hometown of Fresno, CA. After an initial thorough consultation, we were able to work out a solid treatment plan for a reasonable price. My fiancée and I, both medical students, met with Dr. Dunlop and his staff and felt very comforted by his expertise and excellent patient rapport. Additionally, it was great to learn that Dr. Dunlop is a fellow UCLA Bruin and Harvard alum! We felt confident that my father was in the right hands. Dr. Dunlop truly goes out of his way to ensure patient safety and satisfaction. We are very pleased with the quality dental care my father has received and highly recommend him for all of your dental needs! He specializes in dental implants and his work speaks for itself with quality comparable to, if not exceeding, that of an oral surgeon. For the level of trust, care, compassion, and competitive pricing delivered at Better Life Center, we feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Dunlop.

Today was the first time in years I was actually excited to go to the dentist! The whole staff was very knowledgeable, friendly & helpful and I attribute that to Dr. Dunlop. His employees are very kind & caring because that’s how Dr. Dunlop treats his staff. I now have something to look forward to & it’s not going to take years but maybe just a few hours.

I have always had a fear of the dentist and it was a place I avoided for half my life, however Better Life Center really has changed my life. They provided a relaxed environment for me and I really feel cared for and treated with such talented dentist that are also so sweet. I actually like the dentist now whereas it used to be one of my greatest fears.

I have never seen such a compassionate, caring and talented dentist like Dr. Ryan DUnlop. His staff consists of the most caring and efficient office staff I have ever encountered. They really do put the patients first in every way. His specialty and most of his time is spent by giving people new teeth that are like permanent dentures but are implants like you have never seen before. He is like an artist and has the latest high tech equipment in the world. His biggest thrill is to give people a mouth full of movie star gorgeius teeth. He gets so excited when he finishes a clients teeth and they smile a huge dazzlung smile and their confidence shoots off the charts. an I was in the office and he was so thrilled with someone he had just finished up with. His biggest joy is to give people a BETTER LIFE who had no confidence before Dr Dunlop worked his magic in their mouth. People have been held back because they have bad or missing teeth. The success stories of people before and after is amazing. Think you get the picture. IHIGHLY RECOMMEND DR RYAN DUNLOP TO EVERYONE BECAUSE HE CHANGES PEOPLES LIVES BY THE WORK HE DOES. Thanks Dr. Dunlop for what you do for people. Diane Langford

Dustin V. from SoMa, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a 9/10 difficulty case with jaw misalignment, root resorption in numerous teeth, and some chipped/broken teeth. I went to a local dentist who said the case was too difficult for him to handle and he researched the best option for me which turned out to be Dr. Dunlop. I ended up traveling across state lines numerous times for consults and appointments and ended up having a full upper arch reconstruction with an all on 6 surgery as well as two lower implants on teeth that were resorbing. It was a tough process with a lot of moving parts, especially traveling and having surgery, but luckily the end product made it all worth it. I never actually thought I’d have a perfect smile with all the issues I had, but Dr. Dunlop did a great job with the surgery and the making and fitting of the prosthetic. My only negative criticism would have to be that it seems like the offices administrative staff can be a bit difficult to work with at times and they don’t always seem to communicate with Dr. Dunlop when you ask them questions, or if you have been told one thing by Dr. Dunlop and his staff isn’t aware of the situation. It’s not something that deserves a reduction in rating, because at the end what matters is my satisfaction with the work I had done.

Debbie Q. from Newman, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Dunlop for any dentistry needs you may have. I had all on four top and bottom dental implants done with the upper all on four procedure in July 2020 and the Lowers done in October, 2020 . I had looked at several different Dentists that specialize in dental implants and wanted to pick a Dentist that had did many Implants and when I came across Dr. Dunlop’s website I was impressed by his background and his work. I scheduled a consultation and felt confident I chose the best Dentist for what I was wanting to get done. Both my procedures went very well I felt very comfortable with Dr. Dunlop doing my surgeries. His knowledge of Dental implants was impressive not only does he do implant surgery he teaches other dentists the technique of Dental implants that fly from all over the US to come and learn from him. I was blessed to meet some of them as I participated in some of his training classes. I felt comfortable with the IV sedation he used I went to sleep and woke up comfortable with teeth in my mouth. His assistants are amazing as well they definitely have been trained well and are very kind and compassionate! I’m Thankful to have found Dr. Dunlop and his team you won’t be disappointed in choosing this Office. If I had to do it all over again I would choose Better life dental each time. Thank -You Dr. Dunlop and team you guys are truly a blessing!

Dr Dunlop is an amazing surgeon. He truly cares about the patients he sees. As a fellow dentist I recommend anyone that lives in the Central Valley of California to travel any distance to visit this practice. They have state of the art equipment and they treat you like family. This is the place to go if you are fearful of the dentist and you are needing a lot of dentistry. They are also experts in same day smiles. They can restore your confidence in one day. Don’t hesitate to give Dr Dunlop and his team a try you will not be disappointed!

So far everything has been very satisfactory. I am very pleased with the personal attention I have received for my personal needs. Everyone is willing to help you and explain to you every aspect that is taking place and also what to expect for my future appointments. I highly recommend Better Life Center.

Vicki S. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had A LOT of procedures done to my teeth threw my life, from replacing silver for white, capping my teeth, and even braces , and I have endured severe pain threw it all with other denists.  Dr Dunlop has taken the very very best care of me with my comfort and it’s truly amazing how different people treat you from the very second transformation takes place. Dr. Dunlop and his staff are the very very best.  I am the happiest  I have EVER been.

Ednann N. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Dunlop today after seeing his commercials on TV and being referred to him by my neighbor. To be honest my last dentist was like a Bush pilot, ramming and jamming metal into my mouth. You would think anything would be better than that. It was fantastic. This was the least painful and actually pleasant experience you could have at the dentist. The office was clean, the staff was nice and Dr. Dunlop has an excellent bedside manner. He takes his time, isn’t distracted and takes cues when you squirm or need a break. He is Harvard trained and Fresno proud. Need a dentist, go see Better Life.

Sharon C. from Manchester, NH (Source: Yelp)


Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine saying that going for dental surgery would b a good experience – but truth be told, it was!!!! The office is lovely and inviting, the staff is kind and compassionate as well as skilled. And best of all, Dr. Dunlop did my implant surgery while I slept and today (one day later) I am pain free and rid of the bad tooth. I will need more work done and have no doubt that I will return for more of his stellar care. Thank you Doc!!!!

Also known as Better Life Center, the proprietor Dr. Dunlop is THE best dentist I have gone to in my life.  That is saying a lot since I am 55 years old and have been to 5 or 6 dentists in my lifetime.  First of all, their office is welcoming with a Keurig in the waiting area.  Second, my experience is that the wait time to be taken back is approximately 5-15 minutes after your appointment time, which I find exceptional.  Third, Dr. Dunlop explains everything to you, using your xrays as a visual aid, so you know EXACTLY what is going on and what the options are.  Fourth, Laurie explained to me what would happen regarding the steps of the procedure, how the financials would be handled, preop and postop instructions, so I knew EXACTLY what was going to happen.   Oh, and because they didn’t have an opening for 3 weeks for my specific procedure, they right then and there, called someone and reorganized the schedule for a day 10 days out for me.  Talk about personal service.  Fifth, although Dr. Dunlop does sedation dentistry, I opted to have my extraction and implant under local anesthesia.  I made it through without problems.  Dunlop must have some special state of the art drills because there was no loud grinding in my head.   The dental assistant was the BEST I have ever experienced, suctioning with the aspirator to where I never felt that I had to swallow gunk.  This is the first time ever that I didn’t have to swallow during a procedure.  My mouth was kept clean and I was as comfortable as I could be given the circumstances.  I would stake my life on this recommendation.

I had a complete set, upper and lower, implant dentures put in by Dr. Dunlop about a year ago. The entire process was done very professionally with minimum discomfort. I had a follow up appointment today and they cleaned, polished and adjusted my dentures and they feel and fit even better now. The Dr. and his staff are great people to deal with. Highly recommended!

I have always been treated with respect and professionalism when I’ve had to go in. The entire staff makes every effort to make my visit as comfortable as possible. Whenever I have to go in for any type problem I have had it resolved quickly. I would highly recommend doctor Dunlap anyone who has any need 4 excellent Dental assistance

Greg D. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dunlop and staff provides excellent service for my entire family.  My wife needed a crown and veneer on her two front teeth.  Although she was very apprehensive at first, Dr. Dunlop was patient, understanding and the result was beyond our expectations.  If you are concerned about your teeth and want a highly trained and experienced dentist, give Dr. Dunlop a call.

Susan D. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dunlop is a gifted dentist and has done a great job for my family and friends.  His office practices painless dentistry and he is a sweet and gentle person and makes sure you are not experiencing pain.  I have always had a fear of dental work but in his competent hands I was well taken care of.  He specializes in implants and has  vast experience in this field.  I would recommend him to anybody. We’re lucky to have this Harvard dentist in Fresno. He is great!

Worth flying 2000+ miles for! Dr. Dunlop and his team are nothing short of amazing! There’s a reason dental professionals come here to learn the latest technology and techniques, they want to learn from the best. So for a major dental journey (I’m back for my final placement of all-on-four on both arches), the best is who I trusted!

I have had anxiety and panic attacks associated with any dentist office for at least 15 years. It is because of this reason that a lot of dental treatment I need has gone undone. My past trauma has been so high that I have blocked a lot of it out. I just recently found out that at one point I was chaced around an office by dental hygienists at some point in my childhood because I freaked out and jumped out of the chair. When I first found Dr. Dunlap I was hesitant as I always am with new dentist, but before I even went in for my consultation I researched. I watched his CBS special to get a feel for his voice because I am blind. I researched so much that by the time I went in for my consultation I felt like I knew everyone. I can’t remember a time in my life where I felt no anxiety, no panic, just calm and relaxed from the time I step into an office to the time I leave. I can’t remember the last time I smiled and laughed in an examination chair. My journey compared to what most get done at his office is relatively small and is only starting, but I think I found the perfect home for my oral health. I can’t express how much of a relief it is to know that I am in such good hands and can feel safe and confident with the care I am receiving. I recommend Dr. Dunlap and his team to anyone, and especially anyone who not only has issues with their oral health but mental health. If your mental health has prevented you from getting the oral health care you need, go see Dr. Dunlap and his team. I promise you you won’t regret it. 🙂

Hands down the best dentist I have been to!!!! Just got implants two weeks ago. Dose grate work the best I’ve seen. No one comes close to the level of skills and work he dose.  Go’s out of his way to make you feel comfortable and not in pain. Called me personally a few times before and after my surgery.  His staff is as good as he is top notch! !!  They treat You like family.  I looked into many dentists from around California.  No one comes close to his skills or prices.  Hands down the best of the best!!!
