The team at River City Dental is awesome. Dr Lovett has a great team working with her. I have had two appointments and each time I walked out feeling great. Not just physically but mentally. We all have had questionable treatments at other providers but RCD cover all questions however remote they may be. The staff at I RCD takes the time to explain everything to you. They will even give you an updated treatment plan so there are no surprises when you check out and pay. Their proposed plans are reasonable and affordable. I would refer anyone to this practice. My husband will also be switching to Dr Lovett and River City Dental. I’ll give them a score of A+,100! Thank you, River CIty Dental!!!

I recently moved into this area from Georgia, where I had a wonderful dentist for the last 10 years. I did extensive research before deciding to try River City Dental. I read some great reviews on another web site and am so happy that I followed them. I just LOVE these guys. The office staff is extremely efficient and friendly. I felt right at home from the first phone call I made and even more so on my first visit. Dr. Lovett is great. She is gentle, yet thorough and displays a remarkable attention to detail. Best dentist office ever!!!!

Every time I have walked through the door, I have been greeted by Jessica and/or Amy. Always a smile. The other staff members have been great- always explaining processes and answering questions. Last but not least, Dr. Lovett is wonderful. Professional, yet friendly, available to help you during emergencies and provides excellent care while working with you and your budget.

Having a life-long, deep-seated fear of the dentist, I have struggled to find a dental practice I not only trust but am comfortable using. River City Dental is that place for me. The care, understanding and kindness that has been shown to me is above and beyond what I could have ever hoped for. This goes for every person there. Each one goes beyond the day-to-day professionalism that one would expect. I am grateful and whole-heartedly recommend River City Dental.

I came to River City Dental after my wife and son had great experiences and the same was for me. They are very friendly and thorough with their appointments. They explain the procedures, let you know what to keep an eye on and make recommendations, not pushy at all. I’ll be back for routine cleanings and other services.

River City Dental is best dentist office I’ve ever gone too. I want to know what’s going on and probably have a few too many questions, honestly. (I have had more than my fair share of bad past experiences leading to dental anxiety.) However, the staff has always been very kind and courteous in answering my questions in detail which helps keeps me as worry free as possible. The crown I had done recently was fit and worked on with great care and professionalism, making small adjustments until it fit just right with zero discomfort. Not only was this crown done well, but the dentist also trimmed another dentist’s rushed crown, which had caused a lot of discomfort, taking away that pain as well. I am grateful. Combine this with their pleasant office environment and you couldn’t ask for better.

Dr. Lovett and her staff are phenomenal.  I am always greeted by the friendly receptionist and my Dental Hygienist is the best!  Dr. Lovett is a great professional and I highly recommend her service.  Since I have been going to River City Dental the quality of dental care I receive is by far better than any I have had in the past.

Anyone looking for a dentist, you’ve got to go here. The office staff is extremely friendly and so professional. They actually take the time to get to know you and are never in a rush. Kelly (dental hygienist) is so wonderful and so so sweet. She’s soooo personable and listens to you. They are all so very nice and should get an award for being the best dentist office in Jacksonville!

I don’t normally give any place five stars but River City Dental has far exceeded my expectation. Very friendly staff and attentive to my concerns. Very flexible with scheduling appointment and a friendly call reminder for upcoming appointment. I very highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist that don’t want a different doctor at very visit.

Celia H. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


I went to River City Dental for the first time yesterday. Got referred by a co-worker. I was supposed to have an appointment with Dr. Lovett but ended up with Dr. Malarkey who totally impressed me! Everyone was so nice and to top it off, they are in-Network with my insurance! BTW, the office is immaculate and music they were playing was great! I got a detailed plan and pricing on what needs to be done and next visit will be my teeth cleaning. Stay tuned!!!!

Terrie B. from Callahan, FL (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience there a few days ago. New patient along with my daughter and all the staff were friendly and helpful. They really took the time to explain things and were very thorough. I really liked Dr. Lovett she was friendly and honest regarding dental care. The treatment plan was conservative and straight forward. The approach to care was great and something I have never found in a dentist before. Highly recommend!

Friendly and welcoming environment. Clean. Would recommend to anyone! Had been a while since my last dentist appointment- 7 years, yikes! Staff made me feel welcome and important and took great care of my teeth. Kelly the hygienist was especially kind taking care of my cleaning. Gave a care plan with all fees up front and the receptionist handled insurance info very well. Everyone knows what they’re doing and genuinely cares 🙂

Jeannie L. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


Great service and friendly staff. Had the privilege of meeting both dentists on staff. Both were friendly and knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised to get my cleaning and fillings completed on the same day of my exam, even though they weren’t scheduled. It was a tremendous time saver! My insurance was accepted without problems. Overall a wonderful experience for something that I dread doing.

Lindsay T. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying that the professionalism at River City Dental far exceeded my expectations. I was having excruciating pains the night before and called to hopefully get an appointment hopefully scheduled within a day or two. Since this was my first time visiting, I had no idea what to expect. I had the pleasure of speaking with Ashley who was able to fit me in within the hour. She was extremely helpful with making sure my insurance information was received before my actual appointment. I then received by X-rays by Christine who couldn’t be any nicer. She explained the process and made sure I was extremely comfortable. Dr. Lovett then came in and explained the X rays in detail. She was also very helpful and suggested a wonderful plan to get my teeth back on track. Let’s not forget the hygienist Kelly who recommended a deep clean and was willing to answer any questions I had. It was overall a GREAT experience. Dr. Lovett and her team have earned a solid patient for life!

Great to go to the dentist. I have had my dental hygenist Kelly for several years and she is the best. Does a great job, pleasant to chat with and always a smile and positive attitude I like to be around. I love Dr Lovatt as she is the gentalist dentist even if she must drill or work on the teeth. The whole office staff is pleasant and recommend to others.

Dr. Lovett is the best dentist, hands down! I love going to this place. Her and her team are so accomodating and pleasant. As soon as my son starts going for dental check ups, he most definitely will be seeing Dr. Lovett. I just moved to Orange Park from the Northside, & I still make the drive to go see her for my visits. I would not trade my dentist for any other. I am confident in her n her team & I feel so relxed & comfortable there!! I definitely recommend Rivercity Dental!

Let me start off by saying that I have always had horrible Dentist experiences. I’ve also neglected my dental care for about 8 years. I let the office staff know upfront that I was anxious and had not had a good run… WOW. Never again will I go to another dentist. Everyone – every single person – is so kind and authentic. No one talks down to you, condescends, or judges. They’re truly just happy you’re there, and happy to help you. If you have a question, they stop what they’re doing and make sure it’s explained fully before continuing. If everyone had a dental office like this, fewer people would be afraid of the dentist! They’ve gone above and beyond to help me make a care plan and explain how insurance works, add in my secondary insurance when it came in. 10/10 recommend!

Extremely helpful office staff, very professional staff assisting the dentists and Dr. Lovett is knowledgeable and comprehensive in her assessment of your needs. They present you with priorities and cost estimates and then you choose your course of treatment.

Mike N. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


Always a pleasant experience. My hygienist, Ashley, is awesome. She is very nice and does an outstanding job helping my wife and I relax – constantly lets me know what she is about to do before hand. Her gentle approach and professional skills set the example. I’ve been seen by both dentists and highly recommend both. Dr Lovett and Dr Mularkey are both pleasant, kind, gentle and obviously outstanding practitioners. Highly recommended!

Rick M. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


They take good care of you there. No issues at all. They’ve even taken me in on last-minute, non-emergency calls. Always tell me when a shot will be needed, take their time to explain all the things going on, and the front desk folks are the sweetest gals (always putting up with my bad, dad jokes). I don’t fear going to the dentist like usual with them.

Always a positive experience when I go to River City Dental. All of the staff are very friendly and Dr. Lovett is amazing. She pays attention to every detail ensuring her work is excellent and is also very intuitive, paying attention to make sure I am comfortable and knowing when I need a break during the procedure. I always feel very valued when I go here.

Dr Leah Lovett and staff are the best in the Jacksonville area. They worked with us to ensure we had our needed dental work and our whitening completed before our son’s wedding. We were the last patients in the office on more than one occasion. They were always so polite, & pleasant. I highly recommend Dr Lovett.

C C. from Fleming Island, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have always had a good experience with Dr. Lovett and her staff.  On Tuesday an old crown fell out while eating my lunch – I called right away and they were able to see me, evaluate the situation and reset the crown.  Thank goodness I didn’t have to wait a few days otherwise the procedure would have been more complicated with my gums.

Samantha R. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


I met Dr Lovett when I first moved here after a military move. I had a dental emergency late at night and called 7 different offices trying to find a dentist and her office was the only office to call me back and they fit me in right away. It has been a wonderful experience ever since. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable from the receptionist to the doctor. She makes time to fit me in and gets things done right the first time. And the wait… I barely wait 5-10 minutes before I get called back. It is an all around great experience. I can’t say enough good things about this office and their staff. I highly recommend this office. As a side note I can tell you I have always been thoroughly informed about what I would be expected to pay and what the insurance company would cover. Further more I have never had an office visit where they didn’t get something pre-authorized or advised me where there might be an issue. ~Samantha R.

My faith in dentistry has been restored! 20+ years of Navy Dentistry pretty much destroyed any desire for me to see a dentist. After another 20 years I HAD to seek a dentist, lucky for me I chose Dr. Lovette and her stellar team! I was in pretty bad shape and was referred to a Specialist, Dr White (another God send), between them I am now back on track to a full dental recovery. I no longer avoid dental work and actually look forward to my appointments. One more thing, they have worked hard to ensure my insurance benefits are maximized and I truly appreciate their efforts. Thank you River City Dental!!!!

I’m a new patient and I was very pleased with the thoroughness of my first visit and cleaning! I was able to see a close up of the problems with some of my teeth and that really helped me feel confidant that our treatment plan was right on target. Everyone is super nice and are happy to answer all my questions. Very grateful to have found River City Dental, Dr. Lovett, Kelly my hygienist, and the other great office staff. Thank you!

I’m probably the biggest baby when it comes to going to the dentist. I can bare aches and pains but I absolutely abhor having my teeth drilled. I’ve had bad experiences in the past. Dr. Lovett., Dr. Mularky and the rest of the River City Dental staff have all but made me forget entirely why I always hated going to the dentist. It’s hard to come by a professional group who exorcises exquisite professionalism paired with compassion and warmth. I found here the friendliest of environments and best dental care I’ve ever experienced. I highly, highly recommend this group!

Erin R. from Imperial Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love River City Dental! They are nothing but professional and personable, and make you feel as though you’re among friends. I’ve never felt that way about a doctor’s office before! When I was told that I’d need a lot of costly dental work (hooray for bad genes!) they took a pragmatic approach to treatment that didn’t completely empty my wallet. Also, the place is woman owned and run (HOORAH!).

It is easy to have a first or second good experience at a dentist office, however, I can honestly say after that after many visits and years (approximately 7 years) I have never been disappointed with the expert, professional care that I have received. Kelly my personal dental hygienist is wonderful. Dr Lovett has taken great care of all my dental needs – she is my dentist for life. I definitely recommend her.

I have always had a pleasant experience at Dr. Lovett’s office. They is always willing to accommodate my very hectic life when it comes to booking/changing my appointments. The office staff from the receptionist, hygienists, dental assistants, and Dr. Lovett are all great and with excellent chair side manner. I would highly recommend this office to anyone in the area.

Favorite dentist of all time!!!! I haven’t been to the dentist in years and when started researching local dentists, everyone I googled had horrible reviews. So one day I was running errands in the River Center Market Place and I noticed a new dentist office. I researched the dentist and only found wonderful things listed for Dr. Lovett. I made my first appointment and I was delightfully surprised. Since I haven’t seen a dentist in years, I was horrified about what may happen at this visit. Dr. Lovett and her staff were wonderful. They treat their patients as if they are part of a family. My entire time that I was at the dentist, they had me laughing so much that I couldn’t believe that I was at a doctor’s office. Dr. Lovett and her staff did so much to make me feel comfortable for my first visit. I have had other visits since then and the results have been the same. EXCELLENT! I would highly recommend Dr. Lovett to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.
