★★★★★

I have been going to Peterson Family Dentistry for years. Dr. Peterson and his crew are the most welcoming, genuine group of professionals. From the pleasant greetings when you walk in the door to the genuine interest in your well being during your visit. Unlike other places, I have never had to give my name when I show up because they truly know their clients. The office is inviting and warm. My favorite parts are the Tv’s they have on the ceilings and the large selection of movies to watch when having procedures done. Just kidding. My favorite thing is actually that they ask numerous times throughout your visit how you are doing. They genuinely care about your comfort. I highly recommend Dr. Peterson. He’s a genuine caring dentist that wants his clientele to have a comfortable experience from start to finish.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Peterson since 2007. He and his staff are warm and caring and remember our family at each visit. I have had dental work done at this office including a crown and currently Invisalign. The local anesthetic injections are not painful, appointments are convenient and easy to schedule, and pricing is transparent. My daughter was nervous for a dental procedure. They took their time to calm her fears so her experience was a good one. The office is easy to get to off of Overland near Eagle road. I highly recommend Dr. Peterson Family Dentistry.

Myself and my family have been going to Peterson Family Dentistry for a yr and a half and could not be happier. They are all so friendly and knowledgeable. And Dr. Peterson is amazing, friendly, and listens to all my questions and concerns. I would defiantly recommend anyone to go there.

Going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing to do! Peterson Family Dentistry has made having dental work done a much more pleasant experience. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. Dr. Peterson makes you feel very comfortable and thoroughly explains any treatment needed. Love the job Taleah does cleaning my teeth! I would definitely recommend this dental office. Carole R.

Dr Peterson is awesome! He uses a computer system to get your tooth numb! If you have ever had a bad experience with anesthesia this is the best way to get numb! I have had first hand experience with it and Dr delivered a pain free shot ! Give Dr Peterson’s office a try if you are looking for a personable dentist who really remembers who you are and genuinely cares about you as a patient and your family!

★★★★★

After too many years of not going to a dentist, I went to Peterson Family Dental. I had two teeth removed and very little pain. I went back and with Dr. Petersons help made a plan to fix my teeth. He made me feel comfortable about my decisions and after having 4 teeth removed today I am on my way to a healthy mouth. Thank you Dr Peterson you make it relaxing to go to the dentist. I recommend Peterson Family Dental to those who need a friendly and relaxing dental experience.

Dr. Peterson is THE BEST dentist I have ever been to! I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist and always get really anxious when I go, BUT ever since going to dr. John, I feel so comfortable and relaxed when getting my teeth worked on. Him and his staff are all amazing!! Hands down the best dentist office ever! I’d be willing to drive hours to go see them instead of someone else!

★★★★★

We love Peterson Family Dentistry! Dr. Peterson is very skilled and knowledgeable but he is also very personable. We’ve been seeing Dr. Peterson for years and have never had a bad experience. I think Dr. Peterson and his staff are awesome. If you visit his office, you will never want to go anywhere else.

I’m the last person who should ever write a positive review regarding a dentist. Let me start from the beginning… As a kid, I had had braces for five years. During these five years, I had four teeth pulled, my mouth wired shut, and countless brackets and wires pop off, shredding my mouth and lips. Once I had my braces removed, I avoided seeing a dentist for many years. My first visit back to a dentist was traumatic. I had an intern work on me, and it was a disaster. He was so rough they had to step in multiple times to correct what he was doing and apologize for his mistakes. Long story short, I left in pain, bleeding, and with so much cavity filling residue on my teeth, I had to go to a different dentist to have it removed. That was 1999, and my last dentist visit until 2011. In 2011 I was introduced to Dr. Peterson to help him sell his home. As a realtor, I was excited about the opportunity but terrified that he was a dentist. I just knew he was going to ask me who my dentist was, and then insist on seeing me once he found out that not only did I not have one, but that I hadn’t seen one in almost 12 years. How little did I know this was going to change my oral health and my opinion of how dentistry should and could be done. I was scared to death my first visit. I sat in the parking lot shaking, and searching for any reason not to go inside. I finally mustered the courage, and I’m so glad I did. Dr. Peterson’s staff knew I was terrified and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and aware of everything they were doing. I’m sure they spent more time on me that day than they’ve ever spent on a patient before, but I will never forget how gentle, caring, and understanding they were with me. I never went more than a couple minutes without them ensuring I was ok and I couldn’t have been more pleased. This review is long enough, so I’m going to skip to the present. I have now seen Dr. Peterson twice a year for eight years and have referred dozens of satisfied clients, friends, and family members. I couldn’t be more happy with my smile and how my teeth look and feel. If you’re looking for a dentist to clean your teeth, there are probably several options in the valley that would work for you. If you’re looking for a team of professional, caring, sympathetic, and overall amazing human beings, this is the dentistry office for you and your family.

I met Dr Peterson roughly about 5 years ago, I had never had good past experiences with dentists, but my wife told how great he was…… So I went along a was greeted by his amazing staff so happy, freindly, and make it a great stress free zone. When I met him he was great, I can honestly say he does such an amazing job that and takes so much pride in his work that I know he will do the best work. I’ve never once been uncomfortable even through my wisdom teeth being removed or root canal being​ done….. 100% professional at what he does and probably one of the best in the valley if not the best. 5 stars for the Dr and all the girls working there.

This office is fantastic and Taleah (hygienist) was great in making me feel comfortable during my first appointment. The office has modern equipment that surpassed my previous dentist office and was very clean and welcoming. They made the transfer very easy for me and I am glad to have made the switch because after my initial appointment, I know I can expect top notch professionalism and service in the future.

Dr. Peterson and his staff are amazing. My daughter sustained a blow to the face this weekend (Sunday) causing her front teeth to loosen. I messaged their office via facebook messenger right away and received a response within minutes. I was given instructions on how to deal with the situation and also given Dr. Peterson’s personal cell number. I was encouraged to contact him, which I did. He called me back right away. Dr. Peterson put my mind at ease and said he would see my daughter the following day. I am so impressed with the service they provide. Giving out his personal number, returning calls on the weekend. I’m so thankful for Dr. Peterson and his wonderful staff. I truly can’t say enough about them.

Dr. Peterson and his staff are always so professional and friendly. Every one always has a smile on their face and you can really tell how much every one enjoys working here. I constantly felt in such safe hands with Dr. Peterson and his staff. And a huge shout out to Taleah for always being so incredible with my teeth!

I first met Dr. Peterson years ago when my tooth broke on a friday afternoon and I had recently moved to the area and had no dentist. I randomly called his office and they not only checked my tooth but stayed late to fix it. He said he just couldn’t let me go all weekend without fixing it. That same service and care has been given me and my family since. They work hard to schedule all 5 of my kids in a way to get us in and out as quick as possible. The entire staff is not only friendly but exceptional at what they do.

★★★★★

John Peterson has been a friend to my teeth and my family for many years now. He has been there to repair teeth that got damaged, even coming in the evening to fix kids teeth after crashing on skates or bicycles. The hygienists have pleasant bedside manner, the office is clean and well-lit, the location is convenient, the parking lot is typically open and easy to navigate, there is is a kids area, the waiting area has comfortable furniture… it is what I expect from a dental office and staff.

Dr peterson and his staff have always been awesome. I had a fear of the dentist from past experiences and Dr peterson is always genuinely concerned for my comfort and always makes sure my visit is pleasant. Wouldn’t go anywhere else

Went to Peterson Dental on Tuesday with one of my back teeth aching and found out that the crack in my tooth had fractured even more. They were able to fit me in the next morning, by doing this they were able to save my tooth even having to work around my braces still being on. I’ve been to another dentist in the Meridian area and Peterson Dental is by far the best Dentist I have been to the last few years. They do not rush through your appointments and make sure everything is taken care. I’ve found my dentist while I reside in this area.

★★★★★

Dr. Peterson is the best dentist I have ever come across! I have had many negative experiences from childhood through adulthood. Dr. Peterson is the only dentist in all of those long years who correctly diagnosed the issues I was having with my teeth. He and his staff deeply care about their patients, make every effort to make you feel comfortable. My smile is immeasurably better since becoming his patient.

I had the crowns on my front two teeth replaced and Dr. Peterson and his staff were amazing! They put me at ease during the entire process, explained each step, and the result is fantastic. Dr. Peterson did amazing work and my crowns look perfect. I would recommend Peterson Family Dental to anyone!

We have loved the friendly fast service our family always receives at Peterson Family Dentistry. With six children you can imagine the stress that may cause going to the dentist all at the same time. They have always had multiple dental hygienists so several of the kids can be treated at the same time. Dr. Peterson is very personable, outgoing and great with our family. We highly recommend him as our dentist!

We love Peterson Family Dentistry. The staff is amazing and always so kind. The office is clean and welcoming. (No stinky dentist office smell.) My children get excited to go have their teeth cleaned. What!?! It’s true.When we have had major dental work done, Dr. Peterson called that night to check on us. I appreciate that he talks about what needs to be done and does what is in the best interest of the patient. If you are looking for a new dentist, look no more. This place is great!

Dr. John Peterson and his staff are exceptional. From the time you walk in the office you will be treated as family. Dr. John Peterson is a perfectionist that will only give you the best. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for care. Dr. Peterson is great with people that have a fear of dentistry and he and his staff are able to meet the needs of those that are fearful of getting their teeth cleaned and/or fixed. You are in great hands with this office. My family and I have been seeing Dr. Peterson for over 7 years and will never go anywhere else. They are truly the best.

Peterson Family Dental is Awesome. Dr. Peterson treats his patients like Family. I have been using him for about 10 years and look forward to each visit. Taleah is my sons Hygienist and she does a great job making my son comfortable and at ease before his cleanings. She shows him what each tool does so he doesnt get scared of the tools and he knows what to expect. Great Job to this team. Thank you

I am scared of dentists but Dr. Peterson is the most gentle dentist I have ever had. He is very patient and I never feel rushed or guilty for taking a little longer. Dr. takes great care of me and my well being. He offers nitrous oxide to help me through my treatments. My family and I have been patients at Peterson Family Dentistry for ten years now!!

Best dentist. If you are looking for a dentist office, look no further. I could go on and on about the comfortable atmosphere and the clean rooms. The real “treasure” is Dr. Peterson himself. He and his staff made me feel secure and empowered about my dental care. Just go and see for yourself.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr Peterson and his staff. They do an amazing job every time. They are quick, professional and very friendly. I just got a nightguard and he spent his time with me making sure it fit well and was very helpful. They have also provided me with the tools I need to prevent cavities and future problems. I am very thankful to have found them!

I saw Dr. Peterson April 29th, 2019. I am a 53 yoa woman , who needed an emergency visit. I lost an upper crown, while eating soup, lol. I called Dr. Petersons’ office , and Pam was able to find me an immediate appointment opening. Dr. Peterson and his helper Taleah made me feel extremely ” at home “. I’ve never had a tooth extracted, so I was pretty nervous. After a few numbing shots , Dr. Peterson came into my room and started the process of pulling my tooth out. My tooth had become pretty comfortable, living in my jaw bone for 53 years. Dr. Peterson won the battle of removing this tooth. I was really shocked , regarding the recovery. No facial swelling , minimal pain , and a much needed healthier mouth . I am committed to future visits with Dr. Peterson has his awesome staff . Once you decide to take your ” mouth ” in for dental work here , you’ll ” know what I’m saying “. Go NO WHERE ELSE . 🙂 Feeling relieved !!

I was very much impressed with the work of Peterson Family Dentistry. Being well overdue for my teeth cleaning, Dental Hygienist Taleah and Dr. Peterson made me feel very comfortable and collected throughout my entire visit. My anxiety immediately went out the window as they warmly welcomed me to the Peterson family. With their beyond exemplary mannerism, I highly recommend this dental office for your services.

What an amazing Dentist and team!!! I’ve been taking my family here for years and my kids actually like going. My daughter was nervous her first visit but they made her comfortable and helped her realize there is nothing to worry about. Dr Peterson does great work and he truly cares about his patients. The staff are always helpful and fun to talk with. Not your typical boring dentist office. I would definitely recommend to anyone needing any dental work.

My great experience started with my initial visit and cleaning. Taleah was my hygenist. She was friendly and thorough- answered all my questions- and my teeth have never felt so clean! She also discovered 5 cavities, one for every year I had not gone to the dentist. I decided to have them all filled in one visit. Dr. Peterson and his assisitant Alyssa took such good care of me. The novicaine injections were painless and I watched a movied while they worked. Dr Peterson took his time and did an excellent job. I left the office feeling great and actually worked that afternoon with no issues. They also made a night guard for me for the clinching problem I have. My jaw and neck feel so much better. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Peterson’s office. The staff were all happy, lively, and very helpful. It was an awesome experience
