My hygienist is the best!  Breanna makes me feel very welcome and relaxed. We always chat and share stories,  and she genuinely cares and checks that I’m doing okay during any procedure. Dr. Ekman is awesome too,  I love the staff at Higley park and have recommended them to everyone who mentions needing a new dentist and will continue to do so.

I had such a great experience with Dr Eckman and assistant Tiffany yesterday. I cracked two teeth during labor (yay as if labor isn’t fun enough) and ended up needing two crowns. The two of them were so nice but they had me cracking up laughing so many times. How many people can say they laughed their way through two crowns right ?! It made me much more relaxed as a patient. And today Dr Eckman personally called me to see how I was feeling. It’s so rare to find that kind of personal care these days! I’ve gone in before for a cleaning and a cavity filling and those were also good experiences. Very clean office and was very impressed with all the technology they have.

Dr. Eckman completed two fillings on my five year old daughter today.  She was beyond nervous but he was so calm, sweet and patient with explaining every step to her. Dr, Ashley and Rumaldo made it so comfortable for her (and almost made her sister and little brother want to jump in the chair next!–fortunately just for exams). Thank you higley park dental!

Today I had to have my teeth cleaned,  and I have always found Higley Park Dental Care to have great hygienists.  Today my visit was fantastic.  I was treated warmly from the time Ashlee said hello,  until I walked out!  Extremely thorough cleaning,  painless too!  Dr Eckman has certainly surrounded himself with a top notch staff!  Keep it up you guys!!

Katie H. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I had such a great experience at Higley Park Dental! From the front desk staff, to the assistants, to Dr. Eckman, everyone was so pleasant and helpful. My annual cleaning went well and I later went back for some fillings and (as much as going to the dentist can be) it all was fantastic. I’ve had a bad experiance in the past with a local dentist and made me a little nervous about going back, but Dr. Eckman put all that doubt to rest. Thank you so much for helping me! I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

Ryan J. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This is a great office and always make you feel very welcome! I have been coming to this practice for years and always have a great experience. The dental hygienist, Brittani, is amazing and makes you feel comfortable and answers every question. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Dr. Eckman is great also and the two of them make it a very positive experience every time!!!!

I love everyone at Higley Park dental! As a kid I think I went to the dentist twice ever and I’m not the best with dental care but I truly have to thank Dr eckman and all the girls he works with, they have done so much work to get my teeth back to normal and I really have to thank Cheryl too, she has been so on it and helpful! I feel so lucky to have found such a great place and would higley recommend them to anyone

First of all this dentist office was diligent enough, without me even asking, to call me and ask me if I would like to change my appointment time to an earlier date and in the evening no less. I was very appreciative of that. Then when we walked in the door I noticed on there sign in the front office it had welcome and my son and my name displayed. That was really cool! The office is very very clean and it was almost like going to meet the family, everyone there made us feel like we were part of their family. Very kind and generous and Dr Eckman did not go overboard with tons of procedures that didn’t need to be done right now. He was very professional, friendly and thorough. The dental hygienist were also extremely thorough and took their time and did an amazing job. If you have anxiety or bad feelings about going to the dentist then this is the place for you. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dental setting than I did here. I have found our new family dentist!

Andrea S. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist for the entire family!!!  The hygienists provided a very thorough cleaning for my daughter and I.  Dr. Eckman always takes the time to answer questions.  My 6 year old daughter had an EXTREMELY positive experience.  She was nervous at times but the staff calmed those  worries and turned them into giggles.  The staff are Exceptional!!!

Ashley S. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eckman has completely changed my perspective on visiting the dentist. I’ve never had such a humbling, humorous, and gentle dentist in my 25 years of life. Of course my first visit went as expected; I needed 5 teeth pulled (4 wisdoms and 1 cracked molar with an abscess), 10 cavities filled, a new crown and a full cleaning. I was mortified from hearing this and immediately my anxiety went thru the roof. Not only was Dr. Eckman comforting for my freakout moment, but even the assistants were as well. About a week ago I started the process and had the 5 teeth pulled with IV conscious sedation. Everything went better than planned. No bruising, minimal pain, and perfect healing. I’m getting ready to relocate 60 miles away , however, I will still be coming back to Dr. Eckman for all my treatment. From someone who has grown up terrified of dentists, I can say that I look forward to coming back every time.

Pam F. from Chandler, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Had to find a dentist fast because my husband lost his front tooth crown. Found this dentist on the internet. Great reviews. My husband had not been to the dentist in years because of fear. His experience today was so wonderful. From the moment we walked in till the moment we left everyone was so kind and caring. Front desk, back assistants, and dentists. Highly recommend this office. We will be moving our whole family here for our dental needs.

Chet C. from Farmington, NM (Source: Yelp)


The first time I came to this office was when I had a severe tooth ache late on a Friday my former dentist office was already closed and didn’t have Saturday hours but Dr Eckman’s office was able to squeeze me in on Saturday. That was three years ago and I haven’t looked back. Dr Eckman is an awesome dentist. He has the chair side manner if a great nurse. The focus if a military man. Both of witch he was in the past. His dental work is top notch. The hygienist are wonderful. The office staff are responsive and are great at providing a care plan and clear about cost of procedures. The prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this dentist.

John H. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was in the market for a new dentist. So I gave Higley Park Dental a try. The office is nice and the staff wonderful. I was seen at my appointment time. The doctor, Lonnie Eckman, is great. I was impressed with how he talked with me and didn’t try to sell procedures or stuff that I didn’t need. I’ve been disappointed with other dentist offices that try to up sell stuff. It’s only my first visit but it was one worth a second. Give them a try!

Jeff J. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Wow is all I can say. Super friendly staff! Ashley at the front desk came out to help me even though I was an hour early and she was on lunch. Tiffany the hygenist was very nice and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Eckman was also very nice and explained all details with me and made me feel very relaxed. I have had dentist fears for a long time and money was a very big issue with me. I was going to another dentist and even with my insurance There was no way I would have been able to afford the procedures I needed. I came here and almost cried when they explained how much it would be costing me! No price gouging going on in this office! I cannot be more happy. Thank you guys so much! If you are in the gilbert area, or even if you are not, it would be worth the trip to come to higley park dental!

Ryan C. from Tempe, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eckman has been the best dentist I’ve ever seen! I’ve had a fear of dentists from multiple unpleasant past experiences which caused me to neglect my dental care for a few years. When I finally decided to bite the bullet and get some dental work taken care of, I chose Higley Park Dental Care due to all the high ratings on Yelp. I couldn’t be happier! Dr. Eckman (and all of the office staff) are extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. They explain everything in copious detail and make sure you have every option available to you. I have never felt more comfortable knowing that the person working on my mouth knows exactly what they’re doing and is going to make sure that I understand what is being performed and that I will be comfortable with it as well. This place has definitely more than earned their solid 5 star ratings and I’m no longer terrified to have dental work done.

I’m very happy with this office. I had a routine cleaning and a cavity was discovered. The office had a cancelation so offered me the opportunity to fill it right then. It was a great experience. The dentist, hygienists, and office worked happily and efficiently together to get approval and make it all go smoothly. I watched a more experience assistant help a newer assistant set up and saw that this office is a well oiled machine the staff likes to do a good job and seems happy to be at work. They are very professional yet fun and who would’ve thought going to the dentist could be a nice part of your day?

Dr. Eckman’s approach to dental is very relaxed and patient forward. His unique background in other medical fields gives piece of mind as well as a thorough and articulated diagnosis that is always explained in depth to so that you leave feeling well informed on not only the health of your mouth but the role it plays in your health as a whole.

Hands down the only place I feel comfortable going to for my teeth. Dr. Eckman was phenomenal in every aspect. Informative, compassionate and understanding in regards to financial situation. Dr Eckman and his assistant Andrea kept me comfortable and I was shown top of the line treatment from the moment I arrived. Office was clean clean clean!! I’d give more than 5 stars if I had the option!

TJ Howard (Source: Google)


I had amazing experience today with Dr Eckman and all the staff in the office! Everyone is extremely nice and great to talk with, and Dr Eckman explained everything so I understood what was going on. Todays visit was a walk in for a crown that fell off and they were able to get it back on same day! I made a follow up appointment before leaving for my usual check up and cleaning and I have found a new dentist where I feel completely comfortable. Thank you everyone!

Cathy W. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eckman and his staff are just the best! I’ve been with Higley Park Dental for 5 years with regular cleanings, two crowns and several fillings. Everything was smooth and the quality is first rate. I didn’t have to write this review but your reviews help me in selecting health care and personal service providers and I want to help you as well. They have been such a pleasant and professional experience, yet personal and enjoyable at the same time! You won’t be sorry!

Scott C. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have to say Higley Park Dental is one of the best business’ in Gilbert. I had a very painful abcess and they took me in right away. All of the staff was very sympathetic and comforting. Dr. Eckman was so professional and nice that he personally called me the next day to see how I was doing. WHO DOES THAT??? These people actually care about their patients and as some other reviewers stated, they don’t up sell anything. Not one of their staff hates being at the office. I have already recommended a friend to make an appointment and will never go anywhere else for my dental needs. You guys have made a customer for life!

I’ve been meaning to write a review so here it is.  I had a Dentist I enjoyed but the cleaning was less than desirable. After searching around and reading reviews I chose Higley Park Dental Care.  Initial impression:  Great location, nice décor and the staff was professional and pleasant.  Didn’t have time to read one article while waiting and back I go for my new patient assessment.  Julie was my Hygienist and she was awesome.  Her experience showed as well as her welcoming personality and great sense of humor.  Sitting there with your mouth agape while a stranger looks at your teeth is very personal and can be uncomfortable to say the least.  Truth be told, I’d probably feel more comfortable in a room full of strangers in my skivvies…just sayin’. Anyhow, Julie immediately put my fears to rest, X-rays were done and a very thorough cleaning completed.  Dr. Bailey popped in and reviewed the findings with Julie and I felt good about that.  I was provided a treatment plan and some recommendations…nothing over the top like a used car salesman.  The staff was very cordial with a positive vibe, just a great all around experience.  Ran into an acquaintance/friend Brittani who works there as a Hygienist as well and I know her to be an awesome mother and a really kind woman so that was an added bonus.  I have been there twice to see Julie and I think she’s as cool as the backside of a pillow and great at what she does.  I feel confident knowing my expectations of a Dental office has been exceeded and highly recommend to anyone looking for the same.  Please note this review posted under my wife’s name and not mine.  She would not feel comfortable sitting in her skivvies.  My name is Jim.

I have been going to Higley Park dental for YEARS and I absolutely love it! The staff and doctors (Dr. Eckman and Dr. Bailey) are warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. I’m a current dental student in Michigan and I love this establishment so much that I still book my 6 month recalls here when I’m visiting family. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a dental home!

Dr. Eckman and Dr. Bailey are both truly amazing doctors. They both do everything they can to put your comfort and care first. They are the most compassionate dentist I have ever met and they do amazing work. The staff is just as amazing as they are. I won’t go anywhere else. My family and I moved away from Gilbert but I will drive the 45 minutes to see them. All of my family love them both and have the utmost trust and respect for what they do. Thank you for all you do and loving what you do. The Jensen Family

I brook a tooth late Saturday night then found Higley Park Dental was open on Saturdays via the internet the next morning.  From the moment I called I knew I found the right place.  I didn’t feel like they were doing me a favor by squeezing me in on a Saturday, even though this day had to be in high demand.. From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcome and that feeling stayed with me during my entire visit.  Dr Eckerman, Janet and Ramaldo are a breath of fresh air–and the surrounding atmosphere of the office made me feel I just stopped in the local coffee shop to sip on a cup while enjoying the positive vibe surrounding me.

Francisco M. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Though I had been going to another office in my network I ended up dropping by since Dr. Eckman came highly recommended. Right away I was greeted with smiles by Janet and Ashley. Both were kind and very helpful. After I was done filling out all the paperwork I was taken to the back where I was greeted by the lovely Ashley. She was friendly and gentle. As well as Steve. The entire team made me feel welcome and comfortable. I will definitely be switching over to their office for future visits.

Susan L. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I both love Dr. Eckman and his entire Staff, how often can you say that about both the Dentist and their Staff (usually it’s one or the other).  Everyone is very professional and skilled, and yet they know how to have fun (the radio sing along is my favorite :). Everyone here makes you feel like you are valued and a friend, not just another patient.  The Staff makes sure that you know what procedures you are going to need and an estimate of the costs, and if the insurance doesn’t pay for something they consider essential (like X-Rays) they pick up the cost.  I mean seriously, they’re just that awesome!!  I also love the fact that the office is open on Saturday, I thought that had gone the way of the Dodo Bird.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Higley Park Dental.

Trudy V. from Laveen Village, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eckman has a great chemistry with his business. From the minute you open the door to his office the feeling of ease and comfort comes over you. Most Dentist visits are offices full of customers in a waiting room with worry all over their faces. I felt at ease right away. The front desk receives you with warm welcome. When I was scheduled for two fillings in one day I had not had to have work done in over ten years of my life due to a strong dental regimen. I waited very little time before going in. I was given the initial shots to numb my gums before injections and always hated the discomfort of it. Dr. Eckman is a master at it. I did not feel a thing when the needle entered even though he walked me through everything he was doing. I went back again today with no fear for four fillings and a crown. In my past I would have never had so much done at one time because of the discomfort. Dr. Eckman and his staff have taken all the fear out of it. I recommend anyone who has those fears to give his office a try. I drive forty seven minutes to get there and well worth the drive. Thank you Higley Park Dental a refreshing experience!!!

Dr. Bailey is very kind and have lots of patient. I really appreciate how caring how dedicating to make sure my Crown #19 will fit. She gave me options if I want to wait to make sure the root canal will not flare up. If I decide to go through the root canal treatment. She has a lot of patient with me. The last set of hers assistance were knowledgeable and very nice. For an old person whom health conditions tend to either stable or heading south, I have the right dental office. Thank you very much Dr.Bailey.

Met Dr. Eckman for the first time yesterday because my Autistic daughter needs 2 crowns to replace a couple teeth she damaged awhile ago and I’ve been looking for an office with IV sedation. I was impressed with the steps the office had in place due to COVID-19. The staff and doctor were very knowledgeable, friendly, and made us both feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this office.

Lynn K. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have to start by saying I hate, hate, hate, hate going to the dentist! I have not been in 14 years, and then the pain of a broken tooth got to be too much. I listened to a friend who said to go here. So I did. Living in North Phoenix the location was not ideal. But I will never go anywhere else! The staff knows you by name from day one, even if you don’t use your legal first name. They are so friendly and welcoming I wish every medical or pretty much anything I have to do in life that I don’t wanna, could be handled by them. I really have nothing but good things to say so I’ll continue… The comedy! This guy man he’s trying to break the mold on what a dentist should be! I could see hanging out at a bbq with him! He is so real and kind and sincere. Ever felt at home at the dentist? No, well then make an apt and put your feet up:) The hygienist and all the staff are so sweet and funny. Everyone is smiles! And not fake “I have to be at work” smiles, these people really love their jobs and it shows. And they are super affordable and take insurance! Even my company’s stupid self insurance. I highly encourage everyone to make an appointment now! Your teeth, wallet, and opinion of the dentist will thank you.

Cory L. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Lonnie is the man! I’m a Registered Nurse and work with doctors all day. It is rare to find one this compassionate who truly takes the time to listen to his patients and treat them from a holistic standpoint.  He came in over the holidays to help me with a chipped veneer. These kind of doctors just aren’t around anymore. You will find service and expertise second to none at this office!

Tony L. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Everyone here were so nice and made me feel completely at ease…that’s saying a lot since I am horrified of dental work.  Cindy and Ashley were patience with me while I sorted out insurance issue, Jessica and Dr. Eckman explained my treatment plan thoroughly and I’m glad they offer sedation treatment. Dr. Eckman will be our family dentist from now on.

Cheryl and Melinda were the absolute best! Made it a very comfortable and pleasant experience from the moment I walked in. All COVID guidelines were in place and the office was very clean. Best dental experience I’ve had considering the typical pre dental visit anxiety I get. Melinda is the sweetest hygienist and made sure I was okay throughout the cleaning and provided some great info along the way! Would highly recommend and will certainly be back, the commute is well worth it for me!

McKenzie K. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eckman and his staff go above and beyond their call of duty to make sure the patient feels comfortable and tends to all needs with care! Very beautiful, family-friendly office and lots of smiles from everyone inside. I would recommend them to anyone! I drive from south mountain Phoenix to see them because they are that good!
