Great practice! Doctors and staff are down to earth and honest. I have severe dental anxiety and they handled me with genuine care and respect. Never once did I feel judged and when going over my treatment, they took the time to break everything down for me to understand what was priority. The prices were very reasonable for the VIP quality care that I received. I’m lucky to have found this dental practice.

I accompanied my husband to his consultation today and I was extremely impressed in the kindness and professionalism of the staff and the doctor we saw. Everyone had a great sense of humor which is a great trait to have and I would absolutely refer this office to anyone in need. Keep up the great work here, it’s much appreciated 🙂

I had my semi-annual cleaning and checkup yesterday. My hygienist, Kristin Norman is very personable and kept me engaged while she did a thorough job of cleaning my teeth.  Dr. Steinberg came in and did my examination which lead to a collaborative discussion of my options to maintain the health of my teeth.  This entire visit was a pleasurable experience  which is not common when you mention going to the dentist.  I would recommend North River Dental to anyone needing a dentist.

All I can say is WOW! I wish I had found North River Dental 5 years ago when I first moved to Manatee County. My wife and I have suffered the fate of a dental chain for the past 5 years and we were looking for something better. Boy did I find a gold mine when I stumbled into North River Dental. The office is beautiful, a sheer pleasure to see. The staff is over the top friendly and helpful, as well as knowledgable and truly caring. It is by far the most professional (yet fun) office I have ever been to. To top it off the Dr.’s are absolutely the best. If you are looking for a dentist and you go anywhere else before trying North River, you simply don’t care about getting the best treatment possible.

Absolutely love this office! Everyone from the staff to the doctors are amazing. Every time I walk in the girls know who I am which makes me feel very comfortable. I’m literally no longer scared to go to the dentist, and actually look forward to my visits. Fairly priced compared to other dentist in the area, and for the quality they practice if you ask me, it is priceless. They treat you with the upmost respect here and like family. They explain everything that they are doing and why they are doing so. The doctors and assistants are extremely knowledgeable and very understanding to your wants/needs. They completely transformed my smile and gave me my confidence back. I cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for the quality and professionalism that you bring to this community. Will be referring everyone to you!

Excellent practice, basically the Rolls Royce of dentistry in Florida. Some will just need a Honda, but with your mouth you can skimp, or get it done right. I’ve been a patient for 4 years now and haven’t had any issues with appointments, actual dental work or anything else. You’re treated like a person, not just a number. They are experts at pain management. They provide a detailed accounting of the work needing to be done, can setup payment plans and work to accommodate your schedule. They’re very diligent about sending emails, texts and calling to ensure you can make your appointment or reschedule. I was able to get a next day appointment for tooth pain when I called recently. That to me is good service. I gave the practice 5 stars out of 5. If Yelp allowed 4 and 3/4ths, it would be closer to that as the only gripe is that the pricing seems to be a bit on the high side, but it’s worth it.

Deborah D. from Bradenton, FL (Source: Yelp)


The LAST DENTIST YOU WILL EVER NEED!!! – our entire staff at Flavor Laboratories uses North River Dental and they treat everyone like family (which is how we run our lab) but also they are state of the art in every phase, sanitation, equiptment and no real wait times. I would say the most IMPORTANT thing is the EXPERTISE and SPEED is THERE when these days that is hard to find. Prior to North River it was a dart throw as to using “Budget” dentist who were often young and caused far more serious issues than the “budget” lure cost. The staff here REALLY loves you, (are not faking it) and are VERY TALENTED. They have almost no employee turn over so everyone is very happy at North River Dental – the Best Dentists in the Bradenton area. none of our staff has been farmed out since to ”other’ specialists. A great dentist usually can handle real dental.

I had a great experience today with going to North River Dental. The service that I had was reasonably priced and they were on time. I’m very pleased with the service that I had everything was done correctly (bonding repair on my front teeth). I enjoyed the office staff and the office is clean and well-kept and I will go back up for services that they perform.

My husband and I are so happy to have found North River Dental, they are simply the Best dentists anywhere. The entire team is top notch, everything runs like a fine tuned engine: Efficient, friendly, informative, immaculate, and throughly modern with every type of diagnostic equipment and people trained to handle any situation. Can’t say enough about the care we both have enjoyed at this office.

Sean V. from Parrish, FL (Source: Yelp)


Excellent care and service from the whole crew at North River Dental.   Helpful and accommodating over the years they’ve always been the best office, Dr’s and dentistry team I’ve had. They are always prompt and on time. Tammy the office manager has gone out of her way on short notice, to let me know they have last minute openings. I highly recommend.

Bryan K. from Sarasota, FL (Source: Yelp)


Amazing Practice.  This office brings professionalism and class to Ellenton.  The entire building is white glove clean and every single person is courteous and a consummate professional. I called as a new patient and was given an appointment within a week. The intake interview was thorough and then a complete set of x-rays was taken.  The equipment is state of the art and the x-rays were displayed on a large TV in the exam room.  The dentist performed a thorough exam and recommended a cleaning and filling replacement.  I was scheduled for a cleaning and dental work a couple of days later.  The cleaning was one of the best I have ever had.  I have very sensitive teeth and cleanings are often painful.  The hygienist could tell where the sensitive spots were and used techniques that cleaned all the teeth without any pain.  This alone is enough for me to come back here always.  For my filling replacement, a different dentist than the first examined my teeth again and then she completely explained the steps for the procedure.  It was completed painlessly and quickly.  From the receptionist to the technicians to the dentists, this Dental Practice is hands down the best I have ever been to; PERIOD!!

My visit this time at North River Dental was for an extraction. Although this isn’t a great thought, the experience was munch easier than the specialist I saw last spring. Even waiting for the injections to numb the area through my leaving, it took less than the time for the prescription to be filled. I have had a full arch implant with bone graph through NRD. I do this on a cash basis as their approach is more thoughtful than the places where my insurance is accepted. Thank you NRD for being there for me.

I’ve always had bad experiences with dentists and I was very nervous coming in here. Everyone was so nice and reassuring. I feel 100 times better knowing that this is where I will be coming for all of my future appointments. They make you feel like you are in good hands and have nothing to worry about even if you are scared. Great people!

My first time experience at North River Dental was………………AWESOME! Let me tell you why! The staff is fantastic, compassionate and knowledgeable! Dr. Steinberg was SO thorough and explained everything to me! Angela, Shannon and Jourdan took their time with me and made me feel very comfortable! I would highly recommend North River Dental and I was made to feel like I was the ONLY patient when I went here. Thank You all for taking the time to take care of me. This chicken given you 5 stars!

These are some of the nicest people I have met since moving to Florida in 2004. Shannon and Jordan were very concerned with how I felt, and made me feel comfortable and at ease . I could not believe the details of our discussion they remembered and told the doctor when he came in. Not only did they listen to me and my concerns, but they also HEARD me and made me feel like they cared. The doctor was very nice, andbhe to made me feel right at home. The office was amazing, the people professional and personable. I can’t wait to go back and get started. Thank you for helping me feel I am no longer afraid of the dentist!!!

I had my first visit today (2/4/19). I have spent more time in a dental chair than most and I have a full rack of crowns so many different hands have been at work in my mouth over the years but this is by far the most integrated practice I have seen. The thought behind the patient intake and evaluation is extensive the office is very impressive with ornate fittings thoughout but the best, most modern equipment I have ever seen in a dental office. The associates? staff? pros? all know exactly what needs to be done and how to do them. Impressive! The pricing is less than expected given the setting. I liked that all the team seemed to know exactly what to do and what I needed to know.The result is I feel comfortable getting the extensive work I need done here. I have no doubt a cleaning would have as much attention to detail as an implant procedure will take. These people are head and shoulders above the providers I have had in the past. Update after my first crowns are fitted.

I am very fortunate that my wife found North River Dental when we moved to Florida almost 5 years ago. I have experienced everything from routine cleanings to repairs for my denture to a complete Hybridge Upper Denture which is the best decision I ever made as far as my teeth are concerned. Every time I go I am met with a smile from everyone. Along with the smile is a high level of professionalism. Thanks to all of you at North River Dental.

Wendy Theres (Source: Google)


Everyone is SO kind and friendly. I can’t say enough about the absolute most comfortable and painless dental experience I have ever experienced. If you are dreading but know you need to get to the dentist this is absolutely the people you want taking care of your teeth. If it’s the simplest need to the absolute extreme, I guarantee you will be so thankful you made the decision to have your dental work done here! They amazingly make it extremely enjoyable just by how personable each person is there and the ease of the work done! Don’t hesitate. Let go of the fear!! I promise you – they’ve got you! Make that appointment. You won’t regret it. I know I haven’t. They are amazing!!!!

Meggan S. from Bradenton, FL (Source: Yelp)


If I could give North River Dental more rated stars, I would. The office is very welcoming and comforting. They offer water, cookies, chocolate, and coffee as you get there for your appointment and after you’re finished. I have never had to wait long for my appointment compared to other offices I have been to in the past. It is noticeable that everyone is very highly skilled throughout the office. From the front office staff, hygienists, assistants and the doctors…everyone works together as a team to make your visit meaningful. The office is very friendly and works well my busy schedule. I can definitely say that the doctors care a lot about how you feel in regards to your smile and want what is best for you. It is one of the best offices in the area and I highly recommend everyone to go there!

Karen L. from Ellenton, FL (Source: Yelp)


I visited North River Dental after moving from the Northeast.  I found everyone in that practice to be extremely professional, knowledgeable,  and caring.  They listened to me and weren’t pushy about wanting to do a lot of unnecessary work.  I am very afraid of having my teeth worked on and the really put me at ease.  The building was like walking into a spa which made it less intimidating.  I would highly recommend this practice!

North River Dental is a wonderful practice! The entire staff is friendly and welcoming. I was there for a new patient visit and they were very thorough. I haven’t been to the dentist for a few years and had to have a deep cleaning below the gum line, I was expecting it to be uncomfortable but it wasn’t at all. The hygienist used a numbing gel and I had no discomfort. Highly recommend North River Dental.

All the dentists are fantastic. They did amazing work on my caps & really improved my smile. The front office staff is friendly and helpful. The hygienist I always see, Kristin, is stellar at her job also. As a business owner myself, this company shows that it has fantastic leadership with the quality of its employees and processes from top to bottom. I have even referred my mother to them! Great job NRD!

My first visit to North River Dental was a great one. From the front desk staff checking me in, to the new patient consult, X-rays and exam. It was overall a great first visit. I was a loyal patient to another local dentist office for over 20 years but, since my dentist retired I wanted to find a dentist closer to my home. Looking forward to my next visit in a few weeks for a cleaning.

Ken D. from Parrish, FL (Source: Yelp)


Been going to North River Dental for 10 years+, and just have positive things to say about the friendly, welcoming and professional services offered by the entire dental team from the first step in the door at Reception, to ongoing routine care provided by my Hygienist, Kristin to the staff doctors,  Dr. Steinberg, Delrose and Mukkamala.  I’m treated more like family than a patient, and that is what keeps me coming back.

Lucy D. from Bradenton, FL (Source: Yelp)


The most coordinated friendly staff and the finest professional dentist in the area. I would not trust my teeth and smile to anyone else! When it comes to your teeth, nothing but the best is acceptable! I come here without any type of insurance and gladly pay out of pocket. I know I am receiving proper care and the best and complete exam with full disclosure of what truly needs to be done and up front pricing in detail! Walked out with my extensive care list of personal needs and prices. I will be scheduling my needs as I am able. Excited to have healthy teeth and a smile that can brighten this world a bit more! Kuddos North River Dental, dentists and staff!

J C A. from Potomac, MD (Source: Yelp)


Saw Dr. “Raj” for an emergency root canal & temp filling prior to an overseas trip. Found him highly skilled, professional & nice, like everyone at North River Dental. My husband has been a patient here for the past two years with Drs Steinberg & DelRose while undergoing a successful, beautiful mouth reconstruction with Hybridge implants. (Had five other consults before choosing this practice). Can’t say enough good things about these dentists and their staffers, especially Angie (hygienist), BobbiJo(Clinical Mgr), Shannon & smiling, friendly front desk receptionist (Dava). Top notch professional practice with latest technology! Well worth the drive from Sarasota up to Ellenton to see them.

DeeDee S. from Bradenton, FL (Source: Yelp)


Stepping into their office, I knew immediately that I had finally found a great dental practice (it was just a feeling). The receptionist immediately welcomed me & greeted me w/a lovely smile. (I have been searching for a dental practice since we moved here last fall, I arrived in FL w/an ongoing dental issues & after visits to 4 different area dental practices & one horrible visit, I finally found this practice). The waiting area is well decorated, music playing & very clean. I waited just moments b/f Bonnie came to bring me to her office; and instead of the 12 sheets of paper you have to fill out b/f each & every appointment these days, she has a face to face interview. She actually asks you questions about yourself & is generally interested in you as a person, not just a patient. Their office is very technologically up-to-date, she just asked the questions, I answered & she filled in all my info on her computer. There were only 2 documents to sign, she had them printed out, pen ready (done & done) They are in-network w/my insurance, which is a huge bonus, they file the paperwork, even better & to top off this visit, everyone was super polite, friendly & seemed sincerely interested in my care as a patient. (Did I mention I had a first thing Monday am appt & no one was grumbly) 😉 Bonnie took me to meet Jordan next & she quickly did a free CT scan, you just stand there & the machine & Jordan do the rest, painless. Jordan then took me to an office where Dr. Steinberg came in to greet me; Bonnie gave him a quick review of my past dental history, they had already pulled up the CT scan on his computer screen. He was welcoming w/a sense of humor to make you feel at ease. Jordan then took a very comprehensive series of photos & x-rays – very thorough & quickly. I waited for just moments for Dr. Steinberg to return & go over everything with me. I also had scheduled a cleaning & they promptly took me back to see Kristin the hygienist, who was delightful, competent & informative. (Yes, my first visit did take some time, but I never felt rushed or left sitting unattended for a moment, they were all hard at work). They have coffee, water & cookies if you need a break. Finally, off to see Shannon who handles the insurance & follow-up appointments, again everything was already printed & ready to go. She escorted me out of the office with a pleasant good-bye. I had left a wonderful dental practice back in Atlanta & was beginning to think I would have to fly back & forth for dental visits; but I have found a practice that I feel comfortable in not only using buy highly recommending !

My husband and I just moved to Florida full time. George is having full dental replacements with the Hybridge System. Everyone at the office has been wonderful with him! I have been to the Dental Hygienist, and had my first real dental appointment today. Dr. Steinberg was extremely gentle and skilled. Bobbie Jo is great too. She is very knowledgeable and kind. I can’t express enough what a positive experience going here has been. They are stuck with us for life!!

Nancy Wiggin (Source: Google)


I was totally impressed (and grateful) for all of the professionalism, expertise and accommodations made on my behalf when I presented today for my urgent dental situation! Everyone was fabulous, friendly and supportive! From getting a prompt appointment, to the registration process, to the preliminary assessment, treatment plan and intervention- all members of their team worked well together, exhibited excellent communication skills, respect and empathy, making a difficult situation as comfortable and calming as possible!! Their service was exemplary and should be the standard for all dental offices! Thank you! Nancy T Keyes

I am giving North River Dental 5 stars. The Dr as well as his staff were very very kind and professional. I trust very few dentist. The following explains why I havent trusted Dentist until I came to this dental office. The dentist I am mentioning is not this office. Before I moved to Florida back in 2001 I had an amazing dentist who genuinely cared for my family and I. One that I trusted with my family’s teeth. Back then my teenage daughters and I had beautiful teeth. They never had a cavity and went every 6 months for a cleaning. When I moved to Florida back in 2001 I took my daughter to a dentist near Tampa. When he said she had 7 cavities.. I was livid and shocked 7 cavities no way. I didnt believe them. One thing people know about me is you dont mess with our teeth. I decided the next time my daughter went to visit her dad in Michigan he could take her to our dentist. SHE DIDNT HAVE A CAVITY not one. I was livid. I no longer trusted a dentist until now. I have let my teeth go. The other 2 dentist that I went to said I needed to pull all of them. When I noticed the reviews that this office received I decided to get a second opinion. I told them I am not financially able to spend much on my teeth because my husband was on disability and I am a school bus driver so money is tight. They were wonderful and very sensitive to my embarrassing financial and dental situation. They helped me to decide the best way for my teeth to be done so I could afford it. The staff was amazing. I am currently off work due to a broken tibia. When i am back to work full time I will be back to North River Dental to get my beautiful smile back once again. I thank NRD for showing me that good dentists are still around. The office was beautifully decorated and the equipment they have is all top notch.

I had a great experience at the North River Dental office.The staff were very friendly and acted in a very professional manner. The dentist was excellent at explaining why I was having my problem . I was amazed at how cheap the fees were considering I had an X-ray , consultation and examination. The office staff and dental assistants were very knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend this Office to anyone who is looking for a dentist.

North River Dental is one of the best dental offices I have ever been to!! The office is beautiful and will make you feel so comfortable (I swear I could have fallen asleep in their super soft dental chair) it feels more like an elegant home then a dental office. The staff are amazing and so kind with not only you but treat each other with great respect. I had a dental emergency and they were able to get me a fast appointment. Doctor Steinberg is so friendly and put me right at ease. I would hands down recommend this office to all of my family and friends and I have high standards because my own father is a dentist in another state! I will always choose North River Dental…also they are one of the only offices in the area to offer lumineers I drove in from Tampa just for this! The best!!

I nervously went in for a crown replacement today and to my delight Serena and Dr. Strindberg made it an easy and painless experience. The shot of novacaine, which I generally hate the most was not an issue at all. I barely noticed it. They were friendly, efficient, and caring. I told them that coming to their office was almost pleasurable. It makes me very happy that I chose them as our dentist when we moved to Palmetto in July.

I have been a patient at this practice for over 5 years and always had top notch service from both staff and Doctors. I recently had a friend who moved to the area and had a painful tooth but she had not seen a local dentist yet. I reached out to the team and they responded promptly, getting her in the very next day, even though she was a new patient. Most other area practices wanted her to wait weeks! Although my friend was fearful of dentists, they did everything to make her feel at ease and calm her fears. Everyone was so understanding and took the best possible care of her! Thank you so much for being such an awesome practice. I highly recommend North River Dental they are simply amazing!!
