This is an unsolicited review. They are great, I had to switch dentist due to the death of my previous one and boy am I lucky I found these guys. I’m sure they are not the cheapest in town but when your teeth are hurting price is not the driving factor. This is a state of art facility and they treat you with care and respect. I needed help right away and now two weeks later I am pain free and on the road to improved dental health. I won’t name names, but each person I have come in contact in the office is a caring professional. I’m lucky I choose Friendly Dentistry in Greensboro NC.

I called with an emergency and I was lucky enough to get an Emergency Appointment within the hour. Got there and within 10 minutes I was in the chair. They are were Awesone, Kind, Gentle and Understanding. Explained each and every step of the procedure from the beginning to the end. I have had 2 previous dentist that caused me physical and mental damages in my past. But Dr. Ribando, his assistant and the Entire Staff are AWESOME. I highly recommend this team. I am moving my entire family there.

As a child I experienced trauma at the dentist which caused anxiety as an adult. I shared this information at Friendly Dentistry at my first visit. They were so caring and kind when I had my root canal yesterday, my second visit they were the best at keeping my trauma from my past in control. The dentist Mark Wilkinson, was so gentle and the nurse was so kind. I felt nothing when he was numbing me, seriously nothing. The procedure was painless and I never experienced any pain when the numbing wore off. I will never go any where else. My oldest daughter referred me and my youngest daughter is going next. The entire staff is top quality!!!

I have visited Friendly Dentistry 3 times in the last two weeks. I randomly did a search on dentists in the Greensboro area and opted to give them a try. I was in serious pain when I first visited this dentistry. Katie, Dr. Ribando, Leigh, and Janice are true gems! They made a painful time in my life truly pleasant. I’m very grateful to have stumbled across this dentistry. They are a tech forward dentistry that treats its clients like family! I highly recommended this dentistry if you are in the Greensboro area looking for a place to take care of your most prized possession , your smile

I had not been to the dentist in a decade and was very nervous about my visit. Each person in the office was kind and considerate, walked me through the whole process, and it was a fantastic visit. The facility felt clean and safe and the care I received was top notch. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait to go back to the dentist!

Chelsea B. from Greensboro, NC (Source: Yelp)


I was faced with a front tooth that needed a root canal and was badly stained. The rest of my teeth were also discolored. This caused a lot of loss of confidence. The team at Friendly Dentistry were there to help me. Dr Ribando did such an amazing job on my teeth but also educating me on what and how he was going to achieve these results. Katie, Lee Ann , Jennifer all went beyond to be friendly and kind to make each visit enjoyable. Thank you for helping me smile with confidence!!!!

Such a great experience!  Every member of the Friendly Dentistry team took fabulous care of me- always using my name, asking questions about my family and being incredibly friendly.  Lemon/Lime water in the waiting room, individual TVs and warm towels to wipe my face– kept wondering if I was at the dentist or the spa.  They made a typically uncomfortable experience very pleasant.

Simply the best!! Our family has been going to Friendly Dentistry for 27 years. When you find people (professionals) you trust with your health and are committed to your care (and take an interest in you and your family), you need look no further. I know Friendly Dentistry probably got its name because it’s off Friendly Ave, but if you didn’t know better you would think that was their office motto: Friendly Dentistry…and when your three kids look forward to going to the dentist and love the staff, you know you are on to something special.

The people at Friendly were very welcoming and considerate when I visited the office. I waited only a couple minutes, and I was early in arriving. Everything was explained to me in detail, including pictures. I got to meet the dentist who will do the actual work when I return next week. He was very warm and considerate of my situation. I had never had to pay out of pocket previously, so I was a bit surprised at the cost, but it’s likely consistent with others.

Excellent. From the moment I stepped in the door until I left the customer service was outstanding. Jennifer was absolutely awesome. She took care everything. Angela made me feel at ease and done an outstanding job on my teeth. All employees I encountered were professional and provided outstanding care. Highly recommended this business for your dental needs. Cheers. Wayne-O

If dental work is what you need – Then I recommend Friendly Dentistry wholeheartedly The staff is very professional and friendly all around During the procedure you get to let your mind wander with the aid of skylights and aquariums, there is no ambient music but the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxed without it. Unfortunately, I have had to repair my teeth a whole lot over the years, both in Europe and here in the US, and I don’t believe any of those experiences has been as efficient and painless as here. The place is tip-top

Amazing. Friendly, professional staff… everything about my visit was perfect from reception to exit. The place operates like clockwork and everything is state of the art. My hygienist, Pam, was so knowledgeable that it felt like having the doctor with me for the whole visit. Dr. Ribando runs an excellent practice and I don’t think I’d ever go anywhere else.

I always have such an amazing experience at Friendly Dentistry . Everyone is very kind and genuine. I always feel like I am reconnecting with old friends who truly care about my well-being and life outside of my appointment. Well educated staff, they know exactly what they’re doing and how to make you comfortable. Extremely professional, and amazing communication. Highly recommended

I could not be more impressed than I was today at Friendly Dentistry! I have never felt comfortable at the dentist until today! Thank you so much to everyone I met today at Friendly, but especially Angela who took the time out of her super busy day to sit with me and explain in detail what to expect both financially and in my future appointments. I am blown away!

this is a first class operation. The staff is very professional; they are cordial, informative, and welcoming That includes the receptionist, the dental assistant, the examiner, the hygienist and the billing/records people. I saw Dr. Rebondo and he was thorough, careful, and professional. I felt I got very competent attention. Special recognition would be due to the hygienist, who not only cleaned my teeth but was able to treat a stained/infected area to prevent needed further attention. I was very impressed with her competence, and could immediately tell that she loved her job. I recommend Friendly Dentistry most highly.

This is the best dental practice in Greensboro as far as skill, friendliness and efficiency. Also, for these COVID times, they are SO safe. They were already safe, but they added several other steps when they reopened last year. If you are looking for a new dentist, here is where you want to be! The hygienist Janice is the BEST. Like, she is a perfectionist, in the best way.

Thank you! I was a bit apprehensive to find a new dentist so it took too long. Friendly Dentistry lives up to its name!!! Not only was EVERY staff member I encountered kind and interested in me as a person, the dental care I received was impressive. I dare say I am excited about my dental health and eager to return. Wow! This is the beginning of a wonderful journey and new relationships. I am grateful for the professionalism in all areas! If you are looking for a new dentist (or should be looking for a new dentist), make the call to Friendly Dentistry… you will surely be most pleased!

Today was my first time visiting Friendly Dentistry! I obviously am a new patient and the experience here was WONDERFUL! The staff really strives to get to know each patient personally and I was highly impressed with how much Jackie remembered about me from our initial conversation. They are very thorough with everything. From Jackie going over the initial “new patient” information all the way through the end when Sarah Terrell checked me out and answered any/all questions I had regarding financial/insurance information. That’s the type of service I was seeking when I began searching for a local dentist as I am originally from Wilmington. I will definitely be a regular patient at this dentistry!

Dr Ribando and staff have been great to work with! They have consistently provided exceptional professional service. I have had a few complex issues, and Dr Ribando has thoroughly explained all of the treatment options and been flexible with payments. They have been great about squeezing me in on short notice. I have recently moved out of town, and plan to travel back to Greensboro to continue as a patient of Dr Ribando. This is the best dental practice I have ever been to, and I hope to keep coming back for a long time.

Greg E. from Jamestown, NC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Friendly Dentistry for 30+ years and have always had very professional and exceptional dental care. Even though I typically only see them twice a year for general cleanings, they always ask about and remember things about my family! They are extremely knowledgeable in all areas of dental care and I couldn’t have picked a better dental practice.

Ud N. from Winston Salem, NC (Source: Yelp)


Allison the scheduler is AMAZING!!!!!!! She makes the clinic a worthwhile place to clean your teeth and all other dental needs. She follows through and makes sure you are able to get an appointment and also ensures that treatments and procedures are done with your convenience in mind. I greatly appreciate all that she has done to make me comfortable in returning time after time. Thanks to all the staff!! -I assisted my mom in posting this review because she was so adamant on letting others know how great the office is, she doesn’t have yelp! Lol 🙂

I was suffering with a front tooth that was badly discolored and needed a root canal. I also had years of staining and badly needed whitening. Dr. Ribando and his amazing team Katie and Jennifer always made me feel comfortable. Lee Ann is always available for any questions about scheduling or insurance questions. They did such an amazing job of educating me on every single step. I can’t believe what a new confidence I have. Thank you Friendly Dentistry for giving me my smile back!!!

Really great dental practice. Everyone was helpful, friendly, and professional. Performed extensive first examination for new patient and discussed findings and plan of care. No pressure for additional services, but did inform me of upcoming sales on products of potential interest (bleaching). Highly recommended this dental practice.

My experience was wonderful. I had an early morning appointment and they gave me a nice warm blanket to snuggle with. They were gentle and kind throughout the process and constantly checked in with me to make sure I was doing OK. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I’m so happy I found friendly dentistry! Thank you very much!

Jill M. from Greensboro, NC (Source: Yelp)


I really like this practice. They are very efficient and polite. Anytime I come in for a cleaning I am usually in and out in under 45 minutes which is awesome. I have been to other practices that are constantly trying to sell you cosmetic dentistry services or products and there is none of that here.

Renee K. from Greensboro, NC (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful compassionate staff and dentist. They took care of me in an emergency when my regular dentist was closed (Friday). Quite honestly the kindest office I have ever experienced. Every one of them really go out of their way to make sure you are treated very well and have a great experience. Needless to say, they are now the office I consider my dental home.

Excellent experience both times I have been to Friendly Dentistry. Dr. Ribando has been great to work with. I appreciate his advice. Pam was my hygienist and she was great. I enjoyed talking with her. She made the entire experience fun and engaging. If you’re looking for a new dentist like I was I would definitely recommend Friendly Dentistry!

I have had the most pleasurable experiences at Friendly Dentistry!! The staff is very respectful, kind, have excellent chair side manner and are efficient. The environment is very comforting and they do amazing work. All staff member I encountered were welcoming and so polite, making the procedures much easier to bare.

I had an amazing first appointment at Friendly Dentistry! Honestly, I have never experienced the level of customer attention and service at any other medical facility like I received here. Every staff member—from the front desk to the doctor—was warm and welcoming. Traci, my hygienist, made me feel at ease and relaxed immediately. She was not only professional, but very kind and really took the time to get to know me and how I wanted to be treated as a patient (another first for me in ANY medical facility)! Dr. Ribando was equally as kind and thorough in learning my history, explaining the exam step-by-step, and answering any questions. The office itself was bright, inviting, and clean. I will be recommending Friendly Dentistry to everyone—it truly is a top notch office!

What a lovely experience! I reached out to Friendly Dentistry because I chipped my front tooth just a few days after moving to Greensboro. They offered online appointment requests where I was able to add important details about my needs (it was Sunday so my only option was an online request). 8:30am the next day, they called me and got me scheduled that same day. They accept insurance from the school district so my visit was affordable and the quality of the dental filling was excellent. Everyone was very kind and understanding. I felt very comfortable and I’d recommend Friendly Dentistry to friends and family.

I just had my first appointment with Pam (hygienist) and Dr. Ribando and I cannot speak highly enough about the level of care they provided. I truly feel that switching to this practice is life-changing for me after many years of dealing with TMJ and anxiety about dental visits. Dr. Ribando has a deep understanding of TMJ and I learned more about my jaw in 15 minutes than I have learned from many dentists I’ve tried over the decades. And Pam took lots of time getting to know me, asking about my concerns and how she can make dental visits as easy as possible. Anyone would be lucky to be a patient here, but I HIGHLY recommend them if you have TMJ and want to feel safe and secure, knowing you’re in expert hands.

I highly recommend Friendly Dentistry. They are always pleasant, eager to help and concerned about your health and welfare. I have never had this kind of outstanding experience. Every time I go to Friendly Dentistry, they give excellent care, outstanding service from everyone who works there. It is so rare to find such a treasure of excellence.

Anne Coln (Source: Google)


What a magnificent first experience with Friendly Dentistry! Dr Ribano was quite the professional and very helpful with not only my problem situation but, with future potential care suggestions. No one was rushed or uninterested in my situation. The hygenist was wonderful! I truly appreciate their professionalism and excellent care.

Conor Sherman (Source: Google)


Everything was smooth, nothing was unexpected and there were no surprises. From my first call through to my first appointment I was given online forms, text message reminder, clarity on my insurance, everything that is difficult at other places was super simple at Friendly Dentistry. Once in the office the Hygienist and Dentists where professional and thorough and the standard of care was the highest I have experienced. It was wonderful. I recommend Friendly Dentistry to my friends and family. If Google had 6 stars they would get that!

Being a full blown dentophobe/odontophobe – I can without hesitation totally recommend this practice. You are cared for with the greatest of skill and respect. They actually listen to and work with you toward a positive experience! From being sincerely welcomed by the scheduling and front desk team members to your parting “till next time” — the compassion and respect for one another, and for their clients, that this practice walks out is remarkable. An amazing place that I am grateful to have found!
