This place is great! As soon as I walked in Brianne was there to introduce me to the place. She was very sweet and the waiting area is aesthetically pleasing. The white oak and the waiting chairs are unique. The waiting room itself is a fun area to sit in. Dr. Bethel came out to introduce himself to me and so did his assistant, Crystal. Dr. Bethel is very personal, nice, and friendly. Crystal was great as well, she was interesting, talkative, and I could relate to her on a lot of subjects. The equipment is really new and nice. They took a lot of x-rays, far more than my previous dentist’s office. They also have TVs on the ceilings where you can watch Netflix while they clean your teeth, which is really nice. They invited me to come by and say hi anytime, and it felt like I walked away as a friend with them. Weird, I know…But they are just that personal and friendly. All around a great practice, and I will be returning to Forest Family Dentistry on my breaks away from college.

My teeth & gums are hyper-sensitive when it comes to scaling & probing. Forest Family Dentistry completely took care of my needs, making sure I was comfortable and pain-free during the entire cleaning. My hygienist Jack was thorough and attentive. If you have issues with pain or discomfort during dental procedures I highly recommend you contact Forest Family Dentistry.

Great first visit. It was simple to complete forms online prior to visit. Appreciate that they checked my insurance coverage prior to the visit. I appreciate that they mentioned not often changing which insurance they work with in network as I like that consistency. They were able to see the whole family (me, husband, and nervous baby) in a 2.5hr time which is totally fair especially considering we were new patients and the fussy baby seeing new faces. Never felt rushed. Always felt at ease. Learned a lot. Great vibes at the Forest Family Dentistry on Anderson. Thank you for a great first experience.

I just have to say this place and it’s staff are amazing! All my life I’ve had a huge fear of dentist (I totally get the white coat syndrome) and blood pressure goes crazy. I have that fear because my previous dentist visits were scary, it was always about having an extraction, and nothing was ever explained to me about what was happening. It is totally opposite at FFD, they are punctual (you don’t wait forever in the lobby), which means a lot to me (very respectful of your time). Along with that, they have a beautifully professional staff that are always informative and patient with big chickens like me! I had developed such a huge fear of dentist- and they have totally dispelled my fear…well maybe not totally, but I can sit in their dental chair, and not be afraid because they administer the service with such professionalism and extreme care. Thank you for being a blessing to me and helping me get my smile back again! 🙂 You guys have changed my life!

I’ve been a patient with Forest Family Dentistry for about seven years now, and I always enjoy my experience there! A lot of my fellow dental patients are children, and I can see why they would find the place to be welcoming and reassuring. I love all the forest animal themed dental exam rooms, and overall, the place just gives off a really friendly vibe. Getting exams or work performed by their highly competent dentists or technicians with their sci-fi-like, state of the art equipment, makes me feel like I’m going for a dental visit on Deep Space Nine or something. Those handheld, low radiation x-ray guns are really impressive! As are the television screens on the ceilings over each exam chair where you may watch your favorite TV program while your teeth are being worked on. They also use these screens to show you photos and/or x-rays of your teeth as their condition is explained. A discount dental program is available through Forest Family Dentistry. I highly recommend this practice, and especially for child patients.

Brianna Y. from Manor, TX (Source: Yelp)


forest family dentistry is by far the best place I have gone to for dental work ! They understood my fear of needles and worked with me and made sure i was comfortable with what all I was going to need done. They made things very ease and very understandable when I went in for a consultation, explained what I need done now and things that could wait just tell I was healed for the next time around. Rich ( doctor) even talked to me about a tooth implant due to having one of my front teeth missing, he even saw how uncomfortable I was when he was looking at my teeth that needed to be pulled. I was very happy he asked me about and noticed how I felt about it. The other dental place I went to wouldn’t even talk to me about an implant or anything ! forest family dentistry is awesome and epic ! Thanks for all of the support and making me see a different out look for dental care !

Jon M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


It had been 12 years since I’ve had any dental treatment, and needless to say, I was a bit apprehensive about resuming regular dental checkups. My apprehension was unfounded, as the staff at Forest Family Dentistry took great care to ensure that my visit was as painless as possible. They answered all of my questions and made an effort to let me know exactly what was going to happen and what to expect with my visit. Everyone I encountered was friendly, courteous and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this business to anyone.

I literally have ZERO critiques for Forest Family Dental at the Anderson location! From their awesome rescheduling/wait listed program for a sooner appointment, to their call centers professional cs reps, not to mention the front desk staff to the actual Dentists (Dr. Bethell is my dentist) and the their team who work quickly, effectively, and safely to provide us with amazing dental work! working hard to provide the best care for their patients! Definitely recommended!

I could talk about the absolute top notch professionalism, kindness, environment and use of some very impressive dental technology. Or how Doc Bethell and his assistant worked in a very effective and timely manner. But what I was mostly impressed with was his knowledge. For 30 years none of my dentists were able to pinpoint certain issues with the wear on my teeth. Bethell was able to diagnose the issue on about 3 minutes. Where have you been all of my life, Doc?? Highly recommend.

Tyler A. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bethel is the best in town. He always makes the effort to get to know his clients and make them feel comfortable. It’s a nice surprise, too, to realize they have TVs on the ceiling to watch Netflix while you get your teeth cleaned. Everyone in the office is very nice. They entire office has tree-style furniture that Dr. Bethel built himself. Definitely check it out.

Natasha D. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had a tooth abscess, called Friday morning and was scheduled Friday.  All forms were sent on line which was very convenient.  When I arrived at office, was totally satisfied with all the staff and the office and their rooms were extremely clean which is very important to me.  The attention was prompt, explanations and solution to my situation was impressive.  I would recommend Forest Family Dentistry to anyone I know seeking a good Dentist.  Thanks Forest Family Dentistry for making my day a good one.

Dr Robin set me up with Jack the hygienist and I had the best experience getting cleaned and whitened ever. I was apprehensive at first because my experience with other cleanings left me sore. But now I know where to go for a gentle and effective cleaning! Thank you Forest Family Dentistry:) You have a great office culture and friendly staff.

Heather S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I hate the dentist. I hate the dentist more than anything because I my teeth are not that great and as a kid my dentist would just tell me everything was my fault. He was not gentle nor caring. Here it’s not even like going to the dentist office. I never feel anxious and they want nothing more than for you to feel welcomed and comfortable. The moment you walk in you are greeted with smiles. The appointment I had most recently I had some insurance problems, which came from the insurance end, not theirs, and they were so patient and helpful and did what they could to accommodate. By the time my appointment was finished they had cleared everything up with my insurance. They are so friendly, and make you feel comfortable. At any time you can raise your hand and they will stop whatever they are doing and not get impatient and wait until you’re ready. They want to know about you, you’re not just another patient to them.

Jennifer C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Forest Family Dentistry is the best dentist experience I’ve ever had! Every one was very nice, attentive, kind and they really go out of their way to explain everything they are doing. I have never had a doctor, nurse or hygienist give me so much information about what they were doing and it was great. They showed me my x-rays, pictures of my teeth and talked me through everything. It made me feel comfortable and I learnt some interesting facts about my teeth! But what I liked best is that Dr Betthell and his team are primarily focused on keeping your teeth healthy while making you feel good about them. Two thumbs up!

Cliff S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Forest Family Dentistry was recommended to me by Dr. Mollie Kentor. The great folks over at FFD took my call on a Saturday morning and squeezed me in a few hours later. They performed an exam and a Pano and it was VERY affordable! The staff were friendly and helpful; the facility was clean and comfortable; and Dr. Bethell was thorough, friendly, professional and possessed a wonderful chair-side manner. Would HIGHLY recommend these folks. 5 stars!

Andrea Wagnon (Source: Facebook)


I love the vibe. Everyone is unique and authentically themselves while giving excellent personal service. Lots of comfort touches to help ease anxiety. They really do seem to care about your experience as well provide top quality service and workmanship. Everyone from the folks at the front desk to the assistants to the dentists and finally the checkout folks are warm and friendly. Highly recommended.

Marilyn L. from Cedar Park, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have had a lot of work done on my teeth in Calif. & Texas. Dr. Bethell is the best dentist I have ever seen. His equipment is top notch! Didn’t even feel the shots which is a big reason I hate going to the dentist. The Dr. & his staff are wonderful! So helpful & they explain everything that they are going to do & answer all your questions or concerns. They are on time for appointment and call backs. Very clean & comfortable waiting room and patient rooms. They didn’t give me a lecture for not see a dentist when I should & all that stuff you are not in the mood for. He’s a very kind & comfortable person. They make you feel as if you are the only patient & your very much appreciated. I got a tooth pulled and other work done that took some time & I was thinking I would have some pain afterwards or I should have but to my big SUPRISE had none! I’m sure that’s not always the case but it was in mine. I’ve found a family dentist and I have never written a review before but Dr. Bethell’s Family practice is the first. Thanks, Marilyn LeF.

I never thought I would look forward to going to the dentist but here I am looking forward to my next visit with Forest Family Dentistry. It has been 5 years since my first visit and I can’t imagine entrusting anyone else with my mouth pearls. The staff is accommodating, respectful, informative and efficient. What more could you want from your dentist, right? Well let me tell you. Not only should you crave a smooth, noninvasive cleaning of your hardworking chompers but why not have the extra amenities as well? You’re worth it! Netflix with headphones, (if so desired) if not there’s subtitles. A/C on those hot TX days to chill you out. Blankets in case that’s too chilly for you. Cool forest themed artwork and beautifully crafted wood furniture. A staff that will laugh at all your dumb jokes, seriously they’re great! I leave my dentist feeling more confident every time. Thanks Forest Family Dentistry, keep up the top-notch work!

Everyone at Forest Family Dentistry is professional and friendly. The facility is clean and inviting. They even find openings for you in case you have an emergency at the last minute. I’ve been coming to this dentist since 2017 and have seen a variety of different doctors and hygienists. I always leave satisfied. I highly recommend this dentistry in Austin.

Amy A. from Round Rock, TX (Source: Yelp)


I take my family here (3 wild boys). I don’t usually write reviews, but our experience with FFD is always so wonderful I had to jump in and give them some love. Aside from the incredible aesthetic of the offices, the staff goes above and beyond. Their Covid protocols make us all feel comfortable throughout our visit. Most of all, they really take care of my boys and help me manage it all with ease. The TVs on the ceiling help too!! A++ from our fam.

Lilian C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Brought my daughter here for her exam, cleaning and evaluation/estimate for Invisalign and I can see why people love coming here after reading their awesome reviews. From the moment I scheduled my appointment they were very attentive, they asked me to submit my paperless paperwork online so they could look into my insurance with enough time to collect the details. I unfortunately opted out of dental benefits because it seemed the premium was more than what I would actually spend if I paid out of pocket and had no coverage for braces. Their staff was very knowledgeable and offered me a membership plan that would cover the exam, cleaning and give me a 25% DISCOUNT for a very reasonable price. I decided to wait until the day of the appointment to see if that would be a good option for us. They have a great appointment reminder system that helps forgetful people like me and before my appointment they gave me instructions via text and email. Once we arrived to her appointment we texted the office to let them know we were there and we waited in the car until they had our room ready which was like 2-3 minutes. We walked in and everything looked very clean, the front office has a big clear plastic that wraps around and every employee was wearing masks. They immediately took both our temperatures and walked us to the x-ray room. Xrays were quick and painless and then we were taken to our room. There my daughter got her cleaning and was able to catch up on her show. After the cleaning the doctor walked in and showed us her xrays and explained she needed fillings on her molars. He was very thorough and then he went ahead and talked about her being a great candidate for Invisalign. They used what they called a wand that scanned all her teeth and it then showed on a screen in 3D. I was amazed on the technology they use, (so no more gagging on that nasty puddy mix to get a mold of your teeth?!!, these kids now a days got it good I tell ya!) After the exam a lady called me from the office to go over the cost of the treatment and she went into detail on how much I would save if I were to get their membership plan, it was no brainer to choose that over paying for everything out of pocket. Now she has another free cleaning and exam for our next visit (with the membership). After paying over the phone and making our next appointment we were led outside. The whole experience was the best I have ever had in any doctor appointment, staff was very friendly and I never got to walk past other people that weren’t staff. My daughter was very happy with her visit too and can’t wait to get started on her Invisalign, we will definitely be bringing our entire family here!

There isn’t a thing I would change nor have done differently about my appointments with the staff. They made a dream of mine come true by making Invisalign available to me after having an awful 2 yr experience with a trio of practitioners (dentist, ortho, perio) in my previous city of residence. I’m overjoyed, ecstatic, and grateful to Forest Family Dentistry. Granted, true, it’s expensive but I feel it’s worth it.

I really appreciate the people here. They have taken COVID seriously, and I feel safe going to them during these strange times. Everyone who I have encountered at Forest Andersonhas been professional, had a great attitude, and made me feel comfortable. I have had a tooth removed and two deep cleanings and even though those procedures suck they were done with care to make my pain minimal. I would recommend Forest Andersom to anyone.

Peter Ong (Source: Google)


I’ve had different dentists but none ever really had the precision and attention to detail that Forest provides. I’ve had several traumatic experiences that just made me avoid the dentist. Besides their state of the art equipment and technology, the dentists here have a manner and tone of voice that puts you at ease. I just had 2 fillings done and barely felt a thing. They were so quick and gentle, that by the time I was asking when they were going to finish the second filling, they told me they had finished both fillings already.

Emily K. from Cedar Park, TX (Source: Yelp)


Every one was absolutely wonderful! From the front desk to the techs, they all listened carefully to my concerns and worries and were so very gentle and kind. Dr. Bethell was very sweet and attentive. Not only is he handsome but he is very polite and nice as well. He was very thorough and explained everything he was doing and why. I was thoroughly impressed! Thank you YELP for helping me find my forever dentist!

Dmitry N. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Overall, great experience. Everything, from the very beginning till the end, is very efficient: appointment scheduling, x-rays, cleaning, and doctors. Very convenient hours and flexibility in scheduling. I paid less than expected but I guess it really depends on the individual health situation and insurance. I would recommend enhancing appointment scheduling online but apart from it, continue great work with excellent attention to patients!

Tammy H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


After my very first appointment to Forest family dentistry I knew that this was the dental office for me. The staff as well as Dr. Bethel is the most compassionate and caring that I have ever known in at any dentist office I’ve been to. I am finally getting a tooth fixed that I had wanted done since been a small child that most dentist said could never be done it’s finally becoming a reality and I am so extremely happy. I have not only decided to have my children join but also my fiancé will be coming here for all dental work. If you are looking for a good dentist or even have been scared of going to a dentist in the past you should definitely schedule appointment with Dr. Bethel they are the best!

Rolando R. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


As usual the staff at Forest Family Dentistry was friendly, prompt and professional. Their newest staff member, a hygienist, worked on our 12 year old son in a professional manner and was extremely patient. Our son is a wiggle worm and complainer and she was very patient with his fidgety behavior. Dr. Bethel was, as usual, very helpful in detailing the dental conditions of our son and we have a clear understanding of what we need to do to keep our son’s teeth in a healthy state. Our family have been using FFD almost as long as they have been here in Austin and we recommend this dental office to anyone that is looking for good service.

I love this dentist’s office. I’ve had a mouthful of dental work for most of my life, and used to cringe at the idea of keeping my chompers in perfect working order. But this office is full of wonderful, competent, and caring staff that work to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during uncomfortable treatments. I’ve got clean beautiful teeth and great breath (soooo important) and I owe it all to this team!

Drew Korba (Source: Google)


Friendly, prompt, efficient service! Was a great experience overall. They are knowledgeable in all things dental, and competent in using their technology & devices to make their appointments go as easily and smoothly as possible. I was very impressed. I also really like that it’s a local family practice, which I like to support if possible. I had never been there before yesterday, but I’ll certainly continue seeing Forest Family Dentistry in the future!

Lenell R. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


The following sentence really shouldn’t exist: I just had the best dental emergency experience ever! 1am Saturday my permanent bridge came out (OUCH!) so I contacted every dental office in Austin that (allegedly) has Saturday hours. 7:21am I get an email from Dr. Bethell. 9am I’m driving to the office. ..did I mention this is a Saturday? Paperwork, evaluation, X-rays, prescription and out by 10:45am to go get scrip filled. 1:30p Dr. Bethell does the procedure (same day!!), and home by 2:30p feeling very VERY grateful. ..and no waiting. I just live across town from them (but it is totally worth the drive). None of the other offices called or emailed. I’m so happy FFD actually uses their online contact form! Every single one of the staff was pleasant and helpful. All of my questions were answered and procedure and cost were very clear. There was cool decor, flat screens on the ceiling, and the genuine effort of making the patient feel at ease. I am now a fan of Forest Family Dentistry!

Sherri M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient, and really enjoyed my experience here.   The hygienist is very interested in natural nutrition, and I was pleased to learn that I could have an alternative treatment to fluoride using a mineral application.  In addition she shared some new Xylitol product information for brushing and sinus problems.   Everyone was genuinely friendly and caring, and this was a totally supportive and stress-free experience!

Don Murphy (Source: Facebook)


As a new patient with a broken tooth, I was very happy to get an appointment shortly after calling. The staff was friendly, the procedure was perfect and I would highly recommend them. They solved my tooth issue quickly. Thanks!

Zoey Ponder (Source: Google)


I hate going to the dentist, but forest family is great! They explained everything they were sensitive to my dental anxiety and they got me in and out in about an hour on my first visit. I really appreciated josh the hygenist who was fast and also very understanding. I can’t say I’m looking forward to going back but I also am not so stressed about it.

Alex S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I typically despise dentist appointments and this was part of the reason that I hadn’t been to a dentist in over 3 years since moving to Austin!! I knew I had to set an appointment soon so when a friend told me about Forest Family Dentistry I figured I would bite the bullet and get my check up. Upon my initial exam, going over my treatment plan and returning for a few necessary fillings everything could not have gone more smoothly! Dr. Bethell and his team are super personable and pleasant to deal with. He does a great job of going over everything with you so you feel informed and know what the plan is. He is conscious of how his patients are feeling while in the chair and doesn’t just try to “complete the task” and move on to the next. As a plus, the office is very modern and has all brand new top of the line equipment. This was nothing like the experiences I have had in the past with going to the dentist. I am actually glad I went in initially and, dare I say, I enjoyed it! I am looking forward to continuing my care with Forest Family Dentistry and I have already recommended this office to several of my friends!
