I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Vivona at the Eugene Dental Group since mid-2017. I am very happy that I was referred by my family to Dr. Vivona. She is very professional and caring and her staff is all excellent. Last Monday, I called first thing in the morning for an appointment as I was experiencing significant dental pain. They were able to squeeze me in for an appointment that day, diagnose the problem and get me in to see a referral endodontist, Dr. Tian Xia, the following day for a root canal. They made it all seamless and painless. Excellent!

I have had the best dental experience with this group. They are all the most caring people. The front office is friendly & helpful. The dentists are perfectionists, artists & experts in their field. They are also very gentle & have small steady hands. I have had cleanings with 3 of the hygienists, Mindy, Mandy, & Emily They were all very gentle, thorough & informative. The dental assistants Gwen & JR really know their stuff & are friendly, kind & attentive to your needs. Their sterile technique & infection control are state of the art. I feel very safe there. I have also had the opportunity to work with this group & in my 40+ years of dental assisting, they are at the top of my list. I recommend this office to everyone.

You know those people who are fearful of going to the dentist? Well, I am one of them. Going to the dentist is not my favorite activity — I’d rather be hiking or enjoying a glass of wine (or hiking and drinking wine simultaneously — but then again, that’s not very wise, considering the likelihood of a nearby tree root to trip over). But we all need to see our dentist and in that respect, Dr. Vivona is top-notch. She listens, is compassionate, non-judgmental, yet very thorough and professional. She tells you what she is doing and how that will impact you before you experience it. No surprises! She is also very gentle. When she tells you there will be no pain, she ensures that is what you will experience. Her staff – the front desk and the hygienists are all wonderful. This is a friendly office and you will feel welcome here.

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Vivona. I purposefully waited to write this review until after several appointments for different things (cleaning, crown, fillings, etc). I have visited her office 10 times now. Everyone in this office is consistently very friendly and helpful; making you feel like family, while still being professional and maintaining the highest level of CoViD protection. Also very knowledgeable and efficient. They are always considerate of my time, preferences, and anxieties. Dr. Vivona and her staff have far exceeded all of my expectations. If you don’t like dentists this is the doctor and office you have been looking for!

I needed a crown replaced and a couple of amalgam filling’s removed and replaced with composites. With my anxiety and fear level, my dentist recommended this office. I was immediately put at ease and the staff was so compassionate and gentle. The crown and composite’s are beautiful and a work of art. Many thanks to staff and doctor for helping me feel safe and comfortable.

This dental office and staff are patient centered. Our dental hygienist and dentist both are gentle; both listen to my needs and concerns. Our entire family always has a positive experience whether it’s for a cleaning or for procedures. We also feel safe with extraordinary health precautions taken by the entire office team

I have been a patient of this office for over 30 years. I started going there when Dr. Jack Rocheld was the Dentist and I continued with the office after he retired and Dr. Vivona took over. Mandy had been my hygienist for a few years and she does a great job. She has a sincere concern for the health of my teeth and she does an excellent job in caring for them. I would HIGHLY recommend this team!!

I appreciated how patient and flexible the front desk staff were when I needed to reschedule my appointments multiple times. I also appreciated that the technicians and dentists who have worked on me over the years have all been very gentle and worked with me to support my arthritic neck during procedures so as to reduce that pain.

I always know I’m in good hands at Eugene Dental Group! Mindy, my hygienist, is awesome! She always makes me feel so comfortable. Dr. Vivona is amazing too! She takes time to answer all my questions and has a very kind and gentle nature…. this is a big deal if your anxiety is through the roof about anything dental! LOL. I specifically request both of them every time. 🙂

Super clean and friendly staff. I had Dr. Vivona replace a crown that was done 3 different times that left a food trap between two teeth. Finally gone! Plus… i no longer dread getting numb. Gentle injections every time. Dr. Rawlings skill at dealing with cavities is thorough and leaves my teeth beautiful. Highly Recommended!

I am high anxiety when it comes to dental work. However, the team at Eugene Dental Group did an amazing job of putting me at ease. The kindness and expertise demonstrated by Mindy, Nancy and Dr Hudson is to be commended. And, Shanna, who schedules appointments and does the billing is to be praised as well. Finally, their Covid19 protocols are top notch.

Emily was great. I’m not comfortable going to the dental office. She explained everything she did and talked about other things to keep my mind busy. I was very at ease and I’ve never been comfortable having my teeth cleaned. I trust she is taking good care of me. If you are worried about going to the dentist I highly recommend Emily. Otis was nice too.

Thanks once again for the BEST service anyone could ever expect. I have been a patient of this office for over 30 years. Jack was so wonderful it is such a testament to him that he sold his practice to Dr. Elizabeth Vivona Dow. Since her taking control she has gone beyond what I thought was possible to make visiting this office a pleasure. Needing a repair in a hurry this week Molly worked fast to get me a COVID test, and a appointment with the new addition on the team, Dr. Hudson. I was so happy to see all of the safety precautions they have in place. Within an hour Dr. Hudson had completed a beautiful repair for me. Thank you all very much.

Extraordinary. Nice people. Dr. Vivona is the best dentist I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a number of them. She takes care to explain what’s going to happen in any procedure, and immediately puts me at ease. I have never had a painful experience there with any cleaning, filling or crown. For the first time in my life I’m not nervous about going to the dentist, and I never thought that could happen. A huge “Thank You” to all the people at the Eugene Dental Group.

Dr. Vivona and her staff are amazing. They went way over and above to help my 91 year-old mother on extremely short notice, because they clearly care deeply about their patients. I cannot say enough about this office. I read reviews on a lot of dentists before I chose this office, and I am so glad I did. They are truly wonderful!

I brought my 2-year-old twin daughters in for their first visit to the dentist, & they absolutely LOVED it. Gwen (dental assistant) took the time to chat with the girls so they could warm up to a new person & place. They really enjoyed wearing the kids’ sunglasses & holding the suction themselves. Dr. Vivona, who also has a toddler, is also a natural with kids. She was thorough & professional, as always. The girls can’t wait to come back!

Dr. Vivona’s office is a pleasure to visit. I actually feel more relaxed after walking in the door. The staff always greets me by name and they have provided me with top level care since I have been a patient here. There is always a discussion about my insurance benefits so I know what to expect even if we don’t know the exact dollar coverage, they let me know that too. During treatment whether it is a routine cleaning or a more involved procedure I am always made to feel comfortable and can ask any questions or voice concerns. I recommend Dr. Vivona’s office with no reservations. This is by far the best dental office I’ve been a patient with. Thank you!!

Dr. Vivona and Dr. Rawlings are very professional, caring and gentile. They do great work and always let me know everything I need to know to make decisions about my dental health. The staff outshine any I have ever dealt with. The hygienists are are excellent. They have made me feel comfortable and safe during this pandemic. And I am one of those patients who is very sensitive to pain, particularly in my mouth. They all do everything possible to make my dental experience as relaxing and painless as possible. They are taking all possible precautions during this difficult pandemic situation. I highly recommend giving them a try. Once you do you’ll never go to any other dental office.

5/5 stars my most enjoyable dental experience yet! I recently had my new patient exam and X-rays and it was such a pleasant experience. Amy was so gentle taking my films and made sure I was comfortable for each one. I appreciate how Dr. Vivona took the time to get to know me and she was so kind. I love how every question and concern I had, was addressed. I truly believe they felt my needs were important that they cared about my dental health. Thank you to all the team for being so amazing!

So courteous, professional and personable from the initial phone call to make the appt to checking out. Madison is polite and helpful. Codi was exceptional. Great personality and very calm demeanor. Always checking to make sure the cleaning was comfortable for me and took a great history for the dentist. Dr Vivona addressed my concerns. I asked her to be a second opinion on some dental recommendations from a previous dentist and she took it pretty seriously. She is gentle and seems very knowledgeable. Not quick to do unnecessary dental work. She won some award… Register Guard’s Readers’ Choice Awards. I don’t know what it is, but it sounds like a big deal.

Dr. Vivona is an exceptional dentist. She clearly holds herself to a very high standard of dentistry. She completely restored/transformed my teeth. The result is truly remarkable. She brings a degree of artistry to her impeccable work. The cost was very competitive and came in a bit lower than I was quoted. The entire staff and office are very pleasant and professional – no long waits, everything on schedule. The billing folks are very knowledgeable and helpful with insurance claims. Five star experience!

A friend of mine recommended this practice and I couldn’t agree more with her glowing recommendation. I first contacted them about a painful tooth and they saw me the next day. I have seen them for several other issues since and will be getting more work done soon. They are professional, friendly, and their work has been excellent. It’s not often I don’t have some sort of reservation about medical practices but I am entirely happy with Eugene Dental Group.

I’ve only had my initial exam but this office is incredibly impressive. I have a lot of dental trauma from a couple of bad dentists. From the beginning with the hygienist JR, to the exam with Dr. Vivona, I felt incredibly understood and listened to. They both were so comfortable and understanding of all of my concerns. I honestly can’t wait to get started with my dental repairs and I look forward to having this office as my dental home for my entire family.

I haven’t been to the dentist in lots of years.. too many to count and I’m embarrassed. Eugene dental group and Dr Vivona were so nice and her dental asst Amy was amazing! Amy talked me through all of the procedures and X-rays. And Dr Vivona was very open and friendly and listened. Highly would recommend this group to anyone looking for a new dentist!

Dr. Dow and all the staff are fantastic people and exemplary professionals, truly the best dentist experience these challenging teeth have ever had. The office is always sparkling clean and they have really stepped up and employed every safety measure possible to address the new requirements. I highly recommend Eugene Dental Group

Dr. Vivona is a kind, caring, highly attentive to detail, professional. She goes the extra mile for her patient’s care and does awesome work. She takes the time to explain procedures, treatments and concerns, but lets the patient decide. The staff is professional, caring, and efficient. I highly recommend the service, care and quality from the Eugene Dental Group.

Very strict COVID-19 protocols were truly appreciated. Dental Assistant Kim was quite capable and informative as she took LOTS of x-rays, and she was professional throughout the time she spent with me. Dr. Vivona-Dow was also extremely informative as she made a thorough examination of my teeth and gums during our get-acquainted visit. I ‘m looking forward to returning to the office to meet a dental hygienist in a couple weeks.

Eugene Dental Group has been unfailingly courteous, considerate, and accommodating. Their office is well run, and they are respectful of both their patients and each other, they observe health precautions to protect both their patients and themselves. I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone who asks.

Without a doubt, this is the best dentist’s office I’ve ever visited. Just to give you an idea of how much I like this practice, I left Eugene over a year ago, and still drive an hour and a half, because I don’t think I can find a better experience. I’ve had a lot of trouble with my teeth in my life, and have felt a lot of shame and embarrassment about it. On top of that, I’d generally rather be hit by a train than have someone touch my teeth. But Dr. Vivona and her staff are unflinchingly kind and patient. The Office Manager Shanna, has consistently dropped what she was doing to answer my questions, and always goes out of her way to make sure that things are as convenient as possible for me. I just can’t say enough good things. I don’t write a lot of reviews, but I really feel that they deserve to be recognized for the incredible job they do. Also, I got to meet the office puppy Otis today, and I was over the moon about it.
If you’re looking for a dentist, go here. Seriously.

Everyone in this office is professional, kind and caring. My almost adult daughter needed some work done, and we had a short timeline to use our insurance. They put us on a cancellation list and managed to get us in right away, and get the work done before the insurance ran out. They were also very good with my daughter, who had some difficulty with dental work in the past, they made sure her experience was positive and as stress free as possible. The dental work is very high quality and I highly recommend this dental office to everyone.

A colleague referred me to Eugene Dental Group, and I’m so glad she did. The environment is comfortable and they are doing everything they can in terms of COVID-19 safety. The dental assistant was professional and kind, and the dentist was communicative and present. I really got the sense that empowering and involving patients in their dental care is a priority here.

Eugene Dental Group makes going to the dentist an easy & worry free experience. They have my best interest in mind when it comes my dental care & to make sure I’m comfortable. They explain what care needs to be performed & its severity as well as cost. They work with me on the scheduling my appointments with no pressure. I highly recommend Eugene Dental Group.

If you are considering coming here, you should! The staff was absolutely amazing, so friendly and helpful. My dentist was Vilija Hudson and I cannot say enough great things about her. She really took the time to get to know me personally as well as the goals I had for my own dental hygiene. I was able to get in for a dental cleaning quickly after my original consultation which was very nice. I look forward to my next visit

I will disclose right up front that I am Dr. Elizabeth Vivona’s dad. Being as objective as I possibly can, I am truly proud of my daughter’s commitment to dentistry, This is not a job for her, it is her absolute passion! She insists on taking care of my teeth whenever we visit. After 71 years of experiencing numerous dentists back in New York and Ohio, I am truly impressed with the confidence in her that I feel when she is working on me. Her office staff is wonderfully professional, competent and very nice. Yesterday, I received a new crown and numerous filling replacements, and I never “winced” once! In addition, I got to watch my favorite TV stations while the work was being done. I trust that you will be very happy with your experience and your results.
