I’m terrible at making reviews because I can’t come up with the words to describe how delightful my experience has been. I started seeing Dr. Schaffer since last year. I initially thought that I used to get migraines because I was just stressed and it ran in the family. Although the dentist saw me for my teeth she noticed I had an indifference in my head and neck muscles. She was able to refer me to a specialist for migraines BUT it was actually her who helped me. Migraines are gone! She gave me trigger point shots to help me with my bruxism and my teeth grinding. I got a special mouth guard for this. I no longer have headaches! Her and the staff are wonderful. They’re super nice and always try to make your experience comfortable.

I have had more than my share of dental work over the years. But I can easily testify to Dr. Shaffer’s outstanding clinical abilities. Every crown was comfortable and solid. In addition, I have been to other dentists who insist upon unnecessary implants in order to maximize their profit when there are other alternative treatments available. A friend had his teeth extracted and replaced with dentures by Dr. Shaffer. He told me that the teeth removal was painless and the dentures fit perfectly the very first time. I highly recommend her for outstanding quality work!

They were able to squeeze me in after I woke up with a toothache. There were no appointments available to clean out the infection in my molar but Dr Schaffer did not want to leave me in pain and she worked on me as soon as she could! They cared about my pain and did everything in their power to help!

Sundance Dental is amazing! The staff is incredible and everybody there goes out of their way to take care of you and treat you. Dr Rebecca is the best and makes sure that you understand everything before doing anything. Frank and Jessica welcome you at the front and Reggie cleans with care and awesomeness and Leo will take care of getting perfect molds of your mouth for dentures and fixing chipped teeth. No matter what you need Sundance Dental can take care of you. I wouldn’t go anyplace else.

My family has been going to this Sundance Dental Care for over 8 years, and the care we have received there from every at the clinic has been outstanding. They understand and care about us and our dental care, and have always gone out of their way to meet our needs. My family will go no where else. Thanks.

John W. from Tolleson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Have taken my daughter to Sundance dental several times and I love it the staff is great they make her feel special and not afraid to go to the dentist. They put music on for her the whole nine yards wish I had a dentist like this when I was a kid. Very clean and greatly priced and well informative on what needs to be done. Just love going here.

I wrote one review for this dental office but now I want to write another one. Dr Schaeffer and her entire staff are the best dental office you will find anywhere. I’m pretty sure of that.  I have referred my entire family. I originally went to Sundance Dental because of reviews that said she had worked with autistic children. My 89 year old mother was having trouble with her dentures which her old dental office seemed unable to fix or even to care about very much.  Dr. Schaeffer could see the problem right away and even though my mother was not much help in figuring it all out, Dr. Schaeffer remained loving and attentive and thorough until the issue was resolved properly.  Her dentures became one small item that was not a torment to her in her last year here on earth and for that I will be eternally grateful. She was so good with my mom that I went to see her. Then my husband. Then my sister in law. Then my son.  Then my daughter and my grandchildren. She has dealt with dentures, TMJ issues,  tooth extractions, infections, tooth sensitivity,  bite misalignment, two bridges, and soon an implant.  Not to mention just routine cleanings by an amazing oral hygienist. She has treated all the way from 90 years old to 6 years old just in my family and everybody walked away with their dental issues resolved.  They weren’t all easy resolutions either.  She refers you to other wonderful doctors when you need other professional care also. Her staff is equally amazing.  The office manager (Frank who also happens to be her husband) as well as the front desk ladies all are kind, friendly, smiling, helpful and knowledgeable about what they are doing.  They work with you and always treat you like they are happy to see you – every time.   No one is every cranky. No one is incompetent.  Every person in that office is friendly, helpful and professional in their contribution to your dental health and all the other areas that can be affected by dental issues. Also – they do the work they truly believe you need and they help you prioritize what needs to be done first and what you can do if money is an issue. They give you your options, make their recommendations and then let you decide what is best for you given your entire situation. It’s pretty awesome and amazing. I feel blessed to have found this office – Dr Schaeffer and her entire staff.  I see that Dr Schaeffer reads these so let me say – Thank You for all you have done for me and for my family. I very much appreciate the special environment you have created at Sundance Dental.

Such a caring office. From the front desk, dental assistant, billing and the dentist!! The dentist cares deeply about her patients. She not only took care of my dental hygiene, but made sure I was comfortable, answers to my questions and speaking with me after hours to help manage my pain. What makes it all even better is that she is very knowledgeable about my bleeding disorder and made sure she was taking care of me and keeping my bleeding controlled.i highly reccmend this office!!

E. Chapman (Source: Google)


Wow! I’m absolutely blown away by my experience at this office! From effortlessly making the appointment, to the friendly greeting upon my arrival, I was immediately impressed with the staff. Then, my hygienist walked me through the initial process and we had a ball! She was awesome, and she instantly made me feel relaxed and comfortable. And just when I thought things couldn’t get any better…Dr. Schaffer walked into the room! She is warm, welcoming, personable and professional. She made me feel validated and understood. It was the most thorough exam I have ever had! I am delighted to have found this practice! And I know you will be too!

Humberto L. from Tolleson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rebecca Shaffer always makes sure every cleaning I have is completed the right way. I been going to her dental office for the pass 8 years and I have always been satisfied with the outcome of every visit. Dr. Shaffer is great at explaining the best course of treatment when I had a root canal done. So far the best dentist out there and I highly recommend her.

Danielle B. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr Scheiffer and Dr Miley are two
Of the most amazing people and
Dentists. Dr Miley is only there sometimes so I usually see Dr Scheiffer.  She is an ARTIST!!! Amazing work with color for teeth.  Always happy and Leo her dental assistant is always on point.  She is rarely told what is needed allowing for a well oiled machine.  I will be with them until she retires. Dental hygienist is also amazing.  I have never been happier.  My daughter had a filling and said she didn’t even feel the needle.  The best team really!

Rusanna S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have not been to a dentist for 6 years and needed to find a dentist fast after a tooth broke.  I have had 4 appts in a two week period to take care of all of my dental needs.  My experience with everyone at Sundance Dental has been awesome.  The entire team has been so caring and gentle. I could not be happier with the care that I have received.  If you need a new dentist I highly recommend Sundance Dental.

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


It was my first visit at Sundance for my daughter. Dr. Shaffer was amazing and I really appreciated her extensive knowledge and treatment plan. But beyond that… she is terrific and so caring. I felt an immediate connection as it relates to a warm and caring dentist that treats people with the utmost courtesy. I wouldn’t even care if I had to wait long or anything. Her staff is amazing too, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. I will DEFINITELY refer anyone I know to Dr. Shaffer/ Sundance Dental Clinic.

Yvonne M. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schaffer is the best!!  She takes time to listen to my needs and fears. She is gentle and considerate of my pain /fear when working with my teeth. Leo is also a great assistant and so very friendly.  She also is very mindful of my pain and how I am feeling.  I can’t say enough good things about this place.  Oh did I mention I am the biggest chicken when it comes to dentist and they put me at ease.

Linda P. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I found the most amazing dentist for my autistic daughter–we’ve been through 5 and I was sooo happy we finally found “the one”! She’s amazing, patient, sweet and caring. Explained every little step to my daughter-even asked if the music in the office bothered her (it did) so she had staff turn it off! For every little thing my daughter was able to do, she gave her a hi-5 and a sticker–she was covered in stickers by the time we left! I don’t know how, but she got my daughter to sit in the chair, count her teeth, xrays (!), cleaned and brushed her tooth–I wanted to hug her! It’s a 30 minute drive but sooooo worth it!! She Co-authored Dental Guides for treating people with autism, including ones for dentists, parents and autism care providers, helped develop and teach a three day CE program for dental providers. Love her and thought I’d share!.

I don’t like going to the dentist, but I gotta give props when they’re due. Dr. Rebecca Schaffer at Sundance Dental Care (83rd Ave and Lower Buckeye) – This dentist is amazing, professional, caring and helps keep me comfortable. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a former NY’er and has a great heart. She’s awesome.

Ron T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


On October 5, 2020 I had an appointment for an exam, xrays, and consultation. A large number of xrays were taken, and the exam was very thorough. I received a thorough consultation report the same day. When checking out, an appt. was made for the same afternoon for cleaning. Dr Schaffer and all staff were professional, friendly, considerate, and showed much concern. I would recommend Dr Schaffer and Sundance Dental  to anyone. Ron T.

I can’t say enough positive things about this place! Dr. Shaffer is extremely caring and patient. I am a person who suffers from dental anxiety, but Dr. Shffer is always so caring and understanding. She’s very knowledgeable and experienced. If you’re anxious about visiting the dentist, look no further. Sundance Dental Care is the place to go. Thank you so much Dr. Shaffer and staff! You guys are amazing!

Will I recommend Sundance Dental Care ABSOLUTELY, and I ALREADY DO! It’s MORE than just a KNOWABLE & GENTLE Dentist (with small & talented hands) and her CURIOUS staff! ALL are NOT ONLY WILLING, but have on MANY TIMES PROVEN their ABILITY, to PUT THEIR PATIENT FIRST! ON TOP OF THAT… .I don’t think Dr. Schaeffer would ever say there are any “problem patients”….only those who have yet to receive proper treatment and care. Why? Well, because of the horrific NERVE DAMAGE & CHRONIC PAIN I endure, I was deemed to be exactly that….UNTIL I met, and became a loyal fan of Dr. Schaeffer and Staff! One day (quite a while ago), after I had apologized the umpteenth time for my body not cooperating, Dr. Schaeffer put down her tools, scooted around, and looked directly into my eyes. She said that she never wanted me to apologize again, and “…patients like you are one of many REASONS I love my job…and WHY I continue to teach! You challenge me to continue to learn and improve both my education and skills as a Dentist.” Then she scooted back around and finished her work!!

Veronica G. from El Mirage, AZ (Source: Yelp)


They say behind every success man is a women but behind this Fantasist Dentist is her husband who keeping the fire burning for the office. They are a well groomed team. The staff is so friendly and caring. If you have a child the has a disability and you have struggled to find someone willing to work with your child so he or she can get dental service then you need doctor Schieffer because she is a gift from God for your child or even yourself. I can not say enough about Sundance Dental. I just feel so Blessed and want to share this with others.

Harriet F. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Where to start…..I’m pretty old, going to dentists for many, many years. Out of all the visits through the years, this place, Sundance Dental, ALL the people who work there from the staff in the front office to all who help take care of you are the most fantastic people.  Dr. Shaffer is the best of the best.  Match personality, compassion and skill and that’s who she is. I have never been so comfortable through my procedures and some I want to forget, in all my years. I can’t say enough about any one person there.  Reggie is a sweetheart and caring, gentle and the sweetest person you will ever have to take care of you. I highly recommend this dental group to anyone for any needs. You won’t be sorry.  If you want to take the fear out of your visit, call them. if you want to feel like the only patient, call them. Want to meet a good caring staff, call them. Not often will you come across an office staff as good as this one, if ever. If there were more than 5 stars to rate this group, I would opt for 20 plus.4

I went to a dental office close to my house before coming to Sundance and the difference was night and day. The service at Sundance was great, the doctor was very knowledgable, and the staff was very friendly and well trained. I did not wait long and the doctor answered all of my questions. I would recommend going here if you have a fear of dentists like me!.

M. Spears (Source: Google)


I have been going to this dentist for over 4 years now. At first I was terrified of the dentist but now no matter where I move in the valley I will travel the distance to have Dr. Schaffer by my side. She is amazing at what she does and treats me like family. I love all the staff including Frank. If you are looking for a great dentist, you must call them to book an appointment. You will not be disappointed.

Sue S. from Tolleson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Never a long wait. ALWAYS  friendly, caring, welcoming staff. Dr. Rebecca takes her time, explains pros and cons, allows you to decide your treatment without pressure, and is so knowledgeable with non dental illnesses that affect dental health. Love this office and all their staff! My family feels extremely comfortable here!

Kim N. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


It has been a while since I’ve last been to the dentist, so I was really expecting the worst; having my teeth pulled and being forced into dentures. However, the dentist was extremely caring, especially when recommending only necessary work. She went into detail of the pros and cons of each of her recommendations, making sure I understood to make a proper decision. This put me at ease, even when the eventual procedure took upwards of three hours. I wanted all procedures to be done in one visit, resulting in a full mouth deep cleaning (SRP), tooth extraction, and filling. Even more impressive than the doctor’s professionalism and care, the entire office staff of Sundance Dental Care was exceptionally friendly and attentive. They were more than willing to cater to my specific financial needs. Quality service showed that my best overall dental health is in their best interests.

Alicia S. from Tolleson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’m not a fan of dentists – With that being said- I came to Sundance because of its reviews and I have to say they stood up to their reviews 10 fold. They were gentle, Listened, explained and made sure I was ok with everything they were doing. I’ve had a cleaning and 3 fillings done here and every time I’ve experienced this. I’ve brought my oldest daughter in to have a 2nd opinion and couldn’t have been more pleased with their meekness with her. They truly care about their patients – not just looking to make a quick buck- but the longevity of a relationship with every patient that comes to them. The office staff is friendly The reminders are helpful and the easy access to all forms online helps tremendously cut down the wait time prior to the visit. I’d HIGHLY recommend Sundance to the young old and scared (like me) Thank you to the entire Sundance Staff!

Gia D. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shaffer and her team are amazing!  I went to her at the suggestion of my GP.  I have had “dry mouth” and other oral health issues for decades.  Dr. Shaffer has always approached my dental treatment with how it affects my whole mouth, not just one tooth that is the problem. Her treatment plan has helped improve my oral health as well as making me feel more confident when I smile.  I would urge anyone with special needs to go to Sundance Dental Care and Dr. Shaffer and her team.

Elle T. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I hesitate reviewing something medically-related, because it’s often such a crapshoot and a very personal area. But I have to give props to these fab people! From my first call where I bombarded them with gazillion questions about my options and how my insurance would factor into everything, they’ve been fantastic. The woman spent nearly a half hour on the phone with me, I swear. This got me in the door, because if a doctor’s office can’t be half decent on the phone, like hell I’ll open up my mouth and have them hack at it. (And plunk down cash for the pleasure afterwards to boot.) After my phone consultation, I felt comfortable enough driving over to have them evaluate my teeth. I’m very particular about my medical care. I can’t stress this enough. I expect the doctors I allow to poke and prod my body to be professional, gentle, patient, friendly, have a superb bedside manner, informative, conscientious…you get my point. The assistants and the dentist(s) are all of these. I am growing to trust them more and more and will continue to go out of my (geographic) way to remain their patient. They called me the day after to make sure I was ok. Service! And I feel that if I had any concern whatsoever, I could call or walk in and be helped.

Dr Schaffer and her staff are amazing. I moved, but continue to travel across the valley, just to see her, for my dental appointments! Dr Schaffer is a rare find, she is impeccably skilled and a perfectionist; while also being compassionate and sincerely concerned about her patient’s well being. She’s the best and so is her office! (I’ll keep traveling the distance, because I don’t think there is another one like her

I LOVE this Dentist!! It’s the best Dentist I’ve ever been to, I promise you!! The entire staff is amazing!! Dr Rebecca is so awesome and Frank is so cool Jessica and Monica welcome you right as you come in. Every single person who works there will make you feel special and at ease and important!! They really care about YOU and helping you and helping you to understand everything that they are doing and that is happening. I would recommend Sundance Dental to all of my friends and family.

I’ve been a patient with Dr S for many years, yesterday I had a bad day didn’t eat before my apt, and almost passed out the assistance was quick the take my blood pressure and it was super low 🙁  the office staff stayed with me late after their shifts until my pressure and blood sugar came back up, gave me their personal snacks, Frank made a visit to the grocery store insisted I have bread and butter before my mother in law pick me up. They were so kind!!! I get lots of anxiety at the dentist but this office is so understand and I totally appreciate their support, concerns and help!!!! Thank you again!!

Cynthia L. from South Tempe, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I will never go to another dental office again! I went in as an emergency appointment for the most painful wisdom teeth.  Dr. Schaffer and getting staff made sure they were gentle and made sure I was pain free.  I was the biggest coward ever when it comes to seeing a dentist, this office has changed all that!  They saw me the same day I called and even scheduled me with an amazing oral surgeon(I required general IV sedation) the very next morning! Absolutely amazing! She made sure she numbed my mouth with a blocker and prescribed me pain medication so I wouldn’t be in any pain until I was seen the next morning to have my 4 teeth pulled!  I can’t say enough about Dr. Schaffer and her staff! She has a patient for life.  Thanks a million!!

I like how they can definitely can work around my work schedule. And always remind me about my appointments. I’ve had bad dentist experience in the past before with different Dentist. Dr. Shaffer has been able to take good care of me always makes sure Im doing good. she definitely takes good care of my family as well. Thank you DR. Shaffer.

I have been a patient at Sundance Dental Care for about a year. Dr. Shaffer and her team have always given me the best care. Leo the assistant and the Dr always work seamlessly together. The hygienist I see is also great!! This team has worked on my children and I wouldn’t take them anywhere else. I have also seen the other Dentist in there on an occasion, and she also gave me great care. I have come to expect nothing but the best out of that office and they never fail me. Sundance Dental Care is like family to my kids and I and I trust them fully!! Thanks again!!

Delores C. from Avondale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Sundance Dental dentist and staff are AMAZING !! They have always been comforting and always put my health (emotional and physical) first. Very informative about procedures before, during and after office visit! I have never felt a needle prick while getting numbed, they properly rubbed on the topical numbing medicine every time!!  I basically have had every problem with my teeth and each time they make me feel comfortable and at ease !!  Scheduling is awesome, they have great weekday and weekend hours!!  Dr Shafer and Frank run a efficient and family business !
