Flint river dental is an amazing place to have dental work done. I get extremely nervous when it comes to dental work. They did an amazing job making me feel comfortable. I was even tapping to a song while dr Darby was pulling my teeth out. Between dr. Darby and her assistant (I’m terrible with names) it couldn’t have been a better experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of dental work.

I am absolutely amazed with the kindness and awesome work that Dr. Darby and her staff do!!! I had a terrible experience when I was a child and I let my teeth go because I was scared to go to the dentist, in saying that, I’m so thankful I found Dr. Darby and her staff. I can tell you from my own experience that they are the best!! Everyone from the receptionist, dental hygienists, dental assistants to Dr. Darby are kind, caring and most of all patient. I’m teeth absolutely look amazing and I’m so thankful to them for making me smile again!!!!

Had my first visit yesterday, 8/13/20. Went in to have a broken tooth/loose crown looked at. Am having the work done in a month (because if a medical issue). I love Dr. Darby and her staff was already!!! Dr. Darby and her assistant, Nicky, took interest in my medical history, explained the procedure to me, gave me options and answered my questions!!! Have been looking for a new dental practice for a while and Flint River Dental is the one for me!!! Also love that they are Christian based!!! Thank you, Dr. Darby, for making my first visit stress-free!!!

This dentist office is great and the staff is amazing. All the staff members have been nothing but kind, supportive, and encouraging. I still have a couple more visits to complete my work but since day one they have been very nice and very concerned about my comfort and anxiety. I initially was looking for quotes for my dental work but because of their kindness and understanding of my fears I did not look anywhere else. Also, they were honest about the work I needed and didn’t need. I highly recommend Flint River Dental, especially for those with dental fears and anxiety. I imagine that their calmness, kindness, and concern for comfort would also be great for kids.

Took my two-year-old to her first dentist appointment today and it was a delight! I also had a cleaning and loved how family-friendly the staff were. They were willing to help keep my little one occupied while I had my cleaning and even said if I ever didn’t have childcare for one of my appointments, to bring my two littles right along! Such a relief to hear as a full-time mom! I also received a cute shirt and keychain as a welcome gift! So fun!

I think Dr.Darby and her staff are wonderful. I am the biggest chicken when it comes to going to a dentist I put it off till I have to go then I show up and my anxiety is thru the roof they were very patient with me talked to me about my choices. I ended having it pulled I have never had such a easy procedure before and it came out in one piece that has never happened. They are so good I will be going back in 2 weeks to get my teeth cleaned a first for me. I highly recommend them they are very professional but also in tune with their patients needs I am very satisfied with my care today. A big thanks to them all.

Best service ever! My son experienced a tooth ache during the weekend. Dr. Darby not only answered my late night phone call, but agreed to meet me at her office early that next morning. She showed up with her kids dressed in soccer gear. It’s so awesome to have a caring dentist that will fit you into their personal schedule! 5 star rating because they are the absolute best!!!

I am beyond thankful for this dentist and her staff! They provide excellent care to you as a patient, but they also see you as a person. They are willing to go the extra mile to help you in whatever is needed. It’s also very rare you walk into any practice and the staff (including everyone) is joyful and kind. I can’t say thank you enough for providing my dental care, but also just being the people you are. Y’all are difference makers!

Have had nothing but wonderful things to say about the office! Have taken Covid-19 precautions very seriously and make it very easy to check in, fill out paperwork, and feel safe in the office. Dr Darby is very caring and kind. Every hygienist has been so friendly, caring, gentle but thorough. Office staff had my new insurance information before I even had to tell them. Great practice! Would recommend 100%!

I have been a frequent flyer to the dental chair all my life; having had numerous fillings, root canals, crowns, surgeries, implants, etc done to my teeth and gums. As a result, I am skeptical and skittish about every dentist, every hygienist, and every procedure. Basically I am a high maintenance dental patient. Dr. Darby and the staff at Flint River Dental bend over backwards to give me the best care and advice, and ensure my comfort in anyway they can. They refer when necessary to some of the best specialized dental docs I have ever met. I appreciate the individual attention they give me. I am not an easy patient to deal with but they do it professionally and with much care and understanding. I appreciate that so much. Kudos to Flint River Dental!

I went in this morning to have all 4 wisdom teeth pulled. I’m 46 and terrified of dentists. I have to admit I was very nervous but all I can say is WOW. I arrived to the sweetest staff smiling and McKenzie took complete care of me. Dr Darby checked on me immediately and gave me more medication to just relax me. I barely remember the numbing injections. It was like a bee sting. And then I remember sitting up and ready to go home. I was there 2 hrs and it felt like 15 minutes. Thanks McKenzie and Dr Darby I think my fear of dentists has changed. I will follow you wherever you go. Thanks for treating me like one of your own kids. For the first time in months my teeth are not causing the pain I had before. I can deal with the surgical pain because it will go away. It’s gonna be a pain free Christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I cannot say enough great things about the entire staff here. They are caring, compassionate and most importantly; they listen. It makes something as daunting as going to the dentist easy when the staff is this good. I’m there a lot (I neglected myself too long), so I think by this point I’ve met everyone, and I’ve never had an unpleasant experience. See y’all next week.

This is a great dentist office. It has a nice lobby where there’s coffee, water, and tea for you or anyone you bring with you to consume while you wait. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt when it comes to answering the phone or any questions you may have. This is not like some dentist that try and make you have unnecessary procedures just to rack up the bill. Also, they do try and do alot of procedures in-house which will save you some time and money but. On the off chance your procedure cannot, then they refer you out to a specialist that is also a great facility to go to. Overall I would definitely refer my friends here as I have already refered all my family.

Hands down absolute best dentist I’ve ever been yo, I’m not too proud to say that I got 7 crowns from them but they were very good during all of the procedures. Called them today about some pain in my jaw and upper and lower right teeth, they were able to get me in same day. Both Dr. Darby and Dr. Henninger are great. The dentist is not something most consider enjoyable but all of the Flint River Dental staff make every visit the best possible.

The staff are always so very friendly, polite and professional. They are prompt with checking in, doing the check-up. Today I witnessed their caring personalities for a mentally challenged young lady who was there to get her teeth cleaned and x-rayed. They were so patient and it blessed my heart to see the extra care they showed to this young lady.

I’ve been going to Flint River Dental for a few years now. Each experience has been wonderful. In fact, the last time I was in, I had an old filling replaced. I had a ton of anxiety and Dr. Darby was amazing. She even checked in on me that night to see how I was doing. That kind of patient care goes a long way in my books!

I LOVE this office!! Everyone is so nice! The hygienists have never made me feel bad over my lack of flossing and they’re so gentle! The Dentists are so honest as well! I had another dentist tell me that my gums were receding and that I needed a graft. I then came to this office and asked the Doctor her opinion about my gums and she said that my gums are nowhere near bad enough for a graft. Lastly, I don’t have very good dental insurance, so I have to pay cash for certain things like x-rays and fillings, but the prices are no where near as high as some other places I’ve been to! So I just absolutely love it! Highly recommend!!

Outstanding customer service. I was made to feel safe and welcomed. Thank you. The recommendations given were sound, I just need to follow em. When I moved from one company to another they didn’t offer the dental plan that flint river dental accepted so I bought one they did. That’s how much my wife and I love this place. Thanks and God bless

Dr Darby and her staff continue to hit it out of the park. Paying special attention to my complicated medical issues, making sure to keep me as comfortable as possible. We love the friendly front office staff and the very capable hygienist. But most of all Dr Darby, her sweet, gentle nature makes going to the dentist almost fun.

I had the best experience today that I have ever had at a dental office. They were quick, efficient and their COVID procedures were exceptional. Today was a small procedure after a chipped tooth yesterday but I plan to return for all my dental needs! Thank you all so much!

I would like to thank Dr. Darby and all her staff at Flint River Dental. They are absolutely amazing. They are kind and understanding but most of knowledgeable. The office is so nice and clean. You never walk in with out the staff greeting you with and being most encouraging!!! Thank you again for your awesome work!!!!

Best dentist office ever!!! I have dental anxiety and they’re SO kind and understanding. They really put me at ease. Everyone there is so sweet, caring, and gentle. They even prayed with me when I was going through something tough. I don’t plan on ever going anywhere else.

I have always been pleased with Flint River dental. Dr Darby is one of the most professional and personable dentists I have gone to in several years. Her staff continuously compliments Dr Darby’s professionalism in all they do. Dr Darby’s hygienists are also first class. Holly has been my hygenist for some time now and her skills and abilities are beyond reproach. She has a thorough but gentle touch which makes my appointments pleasant and pain free! Thank you so much for having such a wonderful staff and clinic.

The entire staff is always kind and considerate. They always go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Darby always listens to concerns and guides you through the best treatment options. She is very thorough and excellent at what she does. The dental assistants are absolutely precious and will help you feel at ease. The hygienist are fantastic at cleaning and keeping you informed on how to best care for your teeth. The front desk staff are so easy to talk to and always try to fit you in and address your concerns. I’ve been a patient for almost 5 years and I can honestly say that I’ve never had a bad experience.

Yes I would recommend this place to anyone and I have multiple times. Dr.Darby and her staff are sweet and super caring and understanding. she works with peoples work schedules and tries to give the patient exactly what they want. she has helped me with my confidence and still helping me.

All of the staff interacts wonderfully with my children and me! Drs Gibson and Darby have been welcoming since we have been their patients and truly care about not only our dental health, but building good experiences with dental care. Their office is beautiful and comfortable; they think about all the details for a positive patient experience. I highly recommend Flint River Dental!

Dr. Darby has treated me and my large family for six years, and I have never enjoyed such a wonderful dental care provider. The staff is incredibly kind (shout out to Leslie and Kenzie.) I am not a fan of dentistry, but Dr. Darby’s patience, kindness, and generous spirit has overcome my fear. There is no better dentistry practice.

Our whole family loves Flint River! Myself, my husband, and our almost 6 year old have been patients for a few years now. In a couple of weeks our 2 1/2 year old will visit there for the first time. We have had nothing but pleasant experiences, especially with our son. We strongly recommend that anyone looking for a new dentist tries out Flint River!

My family absolutely loves Flint River Dental!! and all the staff there. Everyone is so friendly, and helpful with any issues we’ve had. My girls (3 & 5) love going to get their teeth cleaned and are always so excited to get their bag of goodies (tooth brush, tooth paste, flossers, and a little toy). We are so pleased with our choice of Flint River Dental and would HIGHLY recommend them if looking for a new dentist!!!

Amazing staff and service at FRD! Communication was prompt and super easy to follow. They took every safe and proactive measure during this COVID pandemic. The staff were friendly and courteous and made the whole process a breeze. In particular the hygienist assigned for my cleaning was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. They talked me through every part of the cleaning and informed me of the background and reasoning for each step. I greatly appreciated this in depth breakdown and learning more after having 20+ years of routine cleanings. Would recommend this dentistry to any and everyone.

When I first came to flint River dental, I hadn’t been to a dentist in about ten years. I was ashamed and embarrassed of my smile. I have had a fear of dentists since childhood. From the minute I met Dr. Darby, I knew I was in the right place. She talked with me about my fears and concerns and I never once felt judged by the condition of my teeth. She was so understanding, gentle and kind. After lots of visits, I have a new smile that I can be proud of and it wouldn’t have happened without Dr Darby. All of the staff at Flint River Dental are very nice and professional. I highly recommend taking that step and putting your fears aside. Go see them, you won’t regret it. Because of them, I’m no longer afraid and I will never avoid going to see the dentist again.

I just returned from Flint River Dental. Unfortunately, I had to have a tooth pulled. I went Yesterday afternoon to see Dr. Darby because i was in a lot of pain. She gave me some antibiotics and pain medication and I returned this afternoon for the extraction. Everyone was so kind and helpful to me. Dr. Darby’s assistant prepped me and was really nice. Dr. Darby injected me with the shots to deaden the area and I only felt minimum discomfort. She waited for the area to become numb and then extracted the tooth. I was amazed at how fast and painless it was. I told Dr..Darby and her assistant that I gave them an AA+ and that was the best extraction I ever experienced. I’m sure they are all not that easy but Dr. Darby will do her best. I would recommend Dr. Darby and her staff if you need a dentist. She is the best I have found in the Huntsville area

This was my first cleaning since the pandemic. I am so impressed with the procedures Flint River Dental has to keep everyone safe and healthy! Even behind the masks, you can see the smiles of the friendliest staff around!!! And I can’t leave out April- the most amazing and gentle hygienist I have ever had! She is caring and so very sweet! Thank you!!!!

Going to the dentist or any doctor during the pandemic makes one a little nervous but the staff and procedures in place at Flint River Dental exceeded my expectations and I didn’t feel a bit nervous. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable! I came away with a sweet swag bag filled with a tshirt, cup & pen as well as your typical toothpaste/toothbrush/floss set with my first cleaning. This will definitely be my dentistry home in AL!!

Everyone is always so happy, helpful, and friendly from the time I check-in to the time I leave. It is evident that everyone at Flint River Dental is very passionate about their job. I don’t ever have to wait long when being called back either. This is a perfect dental facility for the whole family. My daughter and I both had appointments at the same time with no waiting and finishing up at the exact same time. Overall best dentist office around!!!!
