I think Dr. Carlson is amazing. He found such a quick way to make my bottom teeth straighter. It’s the best cosmetic procedure I’ve ever had! Dr. Carlson is very innovative and really listens to you. He formulates a plan that is the most economical and will make you look great! I have also had a bridge and crowns done by this group at the Riverside office and their follow up is so good. This is the first dentist I’ve been too that truly cares about your experience causing you least discomfort. I must add that I’m really a coward in the dentists chair but I felt very calm in this office! I’m only sorry I didn’t find Dr. Carlson sooner.

I spent years working for a dentist and I know a good dentist from a bad dentist and Dr. Carlson is an EXCEPTIONAL dentist. It surprises me to see a single negative review for this dental office. It’s obvious from the moment you walk into their office that they have invested in the most advanced equipment. I have had many conversations with Dr. Carlson about the advanced training that he has done and continues to do. Most dentists who have the level of skill and amount of experience Dr. Carlson has don’t bother with continuing education. This alone, for me, sets him apart. My husband and I would not think of going to another dentist. We have recommended Dr. Carlson to several friends and they too have been very pleased with the excellent care they receive. I highly recommend Dr. Carlson.

I have known Rick Carlson for over 20 years and both he and and his staff have always given me excellent service. He loves what he does and it shows. His staff is very friendly and they always explain everything that they will be doing. Rick can do every procedure in the book and he is such a perfectionist that you know it will be done the RIGHT way. You will be very happy with the Carlson Dental Group…guaranteed. Max Zahn

I’m writing this review on behalf of my whole family. Which includes: my mom’s dad’s and my owns experience. I started using this dental services around over 6 years ago. I really like the location, plenty of parking spots. Right in the center of Bartram, very convenient. The office is very clean, the staff is usually friendly especially the financial crew. I had many procedures done here in the past and it was always a success with minimal painful experience. As for my dad’s implants, it was more complicated, we started out with the bridge crown recommended by Dr. Carlson, but that didn’t last so we had to upgrade to the permanent implant crowns. Which was more expensive but Dr. Carlson was understanding enough to give us a discount on it. It’s been a year and he is about to receive his implants crown, since it took 6 months for the crews to be installed and stabilized. My mom’s case is also a bit complicated, she had a root canal done a few months ago, also performed by Dr. Carlson, and he placed a crown on top of the tooth. But the new crown was not comfortable and kept on cutting into my mom’s tongue and inner mouth resulted in blisters. So we came back multiple times to get it correct but unable to. Today we came in for Dr. Maurice to put in a whole new crown. Im hoping it will work out this 2nd time around. Wish us luck! 🙂

Dr. Carlson has been my dentist for quite a few years and he is by far the best dentist I have ever had. He has hired the highest quality team to work for his practice and that quality comes across in the care and results you see once your treatment is complete. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommend! His Riverside location is very convenient for anyone working in Downtown Jacksonville.

Let’s face it, nobody likes going to the dentist. If you’re going to go ((which you should)) this is the place to go. 1) Office hours for real people with real jobs – yay! 2) I didn’t wait at all to be seen BUT if I had to wait, this immaculate waiting room would make the waiting enjoyable. Maybe I’ll get to spend more time there next visit. 3) my hygienist Nadia, let’s just say I wouldn’t take the time to write this review if she wasn’t the best hygienist I’ve had in my 35 years on earth. It was the most painless cleaning I’ve experienced – I want to have her every visit. I probably shouldn’t have named her because now she might be in higher demand but I have to give credit where credit is due. Awesome experience start to finish.

Dr. Carlson and his staff have been amazing. I suffered significant tooth and jaw damage over the years because my DMO insurance only allowed me to go to the doc in the box dentist in a different city. A coworker recommended Dr. Carlson when I moved to Jax and I have zero regrets. My wife and I needed extensive work due to the many years of minimal care provided by my insurance company and Dr. Carlson took great care of us. it has been a long road but I don’t regret a minute or a dollar of the expense it took to get well. Tonight, a crown from the previous quack in another city broke. I will not hesitate to have Dr. Carlson fix this crown and anything else that I need. His practice has treated us better than I ever could have imagined and I appreciate him and the people that work in the practice. I want to give a special shout-out to Chelsea, who is certainly the best hygienist that I have ever encountered. I absolutely recommend to this practice to anyone that needs dental care by an absolute professional organization.

This is hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist office. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to assist. I’ve had several cleanings, a filling, and a crown done with them so far, and each visit was quick, easy, and most importantly pain free!! I’ve had appointments at both of they’re locations, and both facilities are extremely nice, and state of the art. Thank you for the amazing service you provide Carlson Dental Group!!

Needed a tooth chip smoothed out behind one of my top front teeth. They were willing to see me the same day I called. Administratively, they were on top of everything, including courtesy text/SMS reminders, email and web-based pre-check-in process, curbside check-in and temperature check. I walked straight from my car to my procedure chair. I had a small, quick, and minimally-invasive x-ray to check for structural damage to the tooth (none), and the dentist immediately arrived to grind out the rough edges so my tongue wouldn’t be bothered or agitated. Quickest dental procedure in my 30+ years of going to a dentist. Reviewing here because their Yelp score is low, while their Google Maps score is about 4.5 stars, and I had a great experience.

I hate the dentist. Not mildly uncomfortable, but a serious pathological fear, to the point I’ve hyperventilated in dentists offices in the past. Hadn’t been in 8 years…wife kept nagging me until I finally had so much pain, I had to go. Walked in to a beautiful office, greeted by a friendly receptionist with a goddie bag and a bottle of water. After filling out paperwork given a brief tour or office by Hygienist (Ashley), then put in chair. Ashley was the perfect combination of friendliness and professionalism….took a ton of x-rays, explained situation – young doctor came in, very nice and friendly as well. He explained what was definitely needed, what could wait, and we set up a schedule. They can knock you out – which is the option I’ll be going with (fall asleep, wake up with 2 root canals done) and you can request a Hygienist. I’m sticking with Ashley……something about her just made the whole process comfortable. Can’t say I’ll be looking forward to the dentist….but I have found the place I won’t dread, and going to get back into an every 6 months schedule here.

I have been going to Dr. Carlson for the past two years. I have had extensive work done including multiple implants and and even more crowns. Dr. Carlson is a man of his word. He works very hard to achieve the best result possible. I am probably one of the most picky patients he has ever had, and he has tolerated me very well. If something isn’t done right he will make it right. I am nearing the completion of all of my major dental work and so far I couldn’t be happier. I searched long and hard for the right dentist to address my dental problems as I knew they were extensive. I had read so many reviews on various dentists and I needed to pick the one that was right for me as I could not afford to have to redo any of the work if it wasn’t done correctly. I can say without question that I made a very good choice when deciding to go with Dr. Carlson and his wonderful staff. My dental work is beautiful, natural looking, and the functionality is great.
