There are no words to describe my Westgate Dental family. They truly care, not only about your teeth, but about you, your family, your pets and your circumstances. I have been receiving their very gifted dental talents for over 30 years and I would recommend them without any hesitation to everyone. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Rightmer, Dr. Yarbrough, Christine and Liz for being there for me today. They worked a miracle.

My wife and I have been patients for ~27+ years. We have implicit trust in Dr. Yarbrough and his caring staff. Our experience has been outstanding throughout. Dr. Yarbrough has a conservative, common sense approach. We have never felt pushed or pressured to have all sorts of unwarranted and costly procedures. In fact, it was this type of experience that led us to Dr. Yarbrough to start and we’ve remained loyal patients since. His practice treats their patients like they are family. Like a lot of others, I put off my regular visits due to the pandemic. However, I recently felt I needed to change that. My experience was very pleasant and positive. I was left confident that all protocols were followed and were effective. So, if you are a current patient or are looking for dentist, I certainly would endorse Westgate Dental.

I was terrified of dental work!!!  That is… until I went to Westgate Family Dental.  Not only does Dr Yarborough set you at ease with his amazingly reassuring demeanor, experience, and expertise, but his staff is A+++.  I’ve never EVER been so at ease with something I’ve feared so much!  Ntm, that his procedures(and I’ve had plenty bc I avoided going to the dentist before) have always turned out top notch.  He not only is my dentist, but also all 3 of my kids and they think he’s the GREATEST!!!  Seriously,  I can’t give a higher rating to Dr Y and the crew at Westgate Family Dental

West gate Family Dental is headed by Dr. Steven Yarbrough who is a capable doctor with a great personality. His staff are excellent and the atmosphere in the office is warm and friendly. My wife and I have been pleased patients for over 20 years. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for great dental care. Frank Gordon Austin, Texas

Every single time I visit Dr. Yarbrough’s office I leave so happy and bothered that I don’t see them as often as I should. The staff is just as amazing as he is, each one of them is highly dedicated to their role in the office. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Yarbrough and the team at West Gate Dental. You will NOT regret making an appointment…they make going to the dentist something to look forward to!

I had been looking for the right dentist since moving to Austin 3 years ago. It sounds crazy but I had been with my dentist in Houston for 17 years and I would drive to Houston for treatment and cleanings since I have complex dental work with multiple dental implants, root canals, bridge work the lot! I really had a thorough cleaning by Melissa who made me feel at ease and knows what she is doing, and Dr. Yarbrough who is my dentist for the next 17 years for sure. Front desk staff was friendly, efficient, it was a great experience. Highly recommend.

Kimi J. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was that patient that I’m sure most dentists do not look forward to. Two words: High Maintenance. Two more words: High Anxiety. First thing on a Monday morning too, 15 minutes late for a root canal, in which I needed my hand held the whole time and a strong dose of sedatives. The staff at Westgate Family Dental and Dr. Yarbrough were so kind and supportive through the entire process. They did a wonderful job of putting me at ease. The root canal went as well as it could go and within two days, most of the tenderness and sensitivity was gone. With my torturous anxiety over dental work, I feel really lucky to have found them. Dr. Yarbrough has an authentic smile and laugh which puts me at ease immediately. The staff entertained my sedated dumb humor. The dental assistant was comforting when I started crying as if I was saying goodbye to a leg that was going to be cut off. I literally walked into their office and said, “I hope you don’t mind that I’m going to be a total and complete mess today.” Who says that AT THE DENTIST? I do. Cause I’m weird and lack social boundaries… but that is another conversation. I’ll be back and I’ll be better behaved next time. Promise. Thank you WFD!

Westgate Dental is a great dental office with a great staff. Dr Yarbrough was my first adult-life dentist. After moving out of Austin, I switched to a local dentist for a few years. After a couple procedures with my new dentist I decided to go back to Westgate Dental, despite the long drive for each visit. I just had my first return visit and am feeling very good about the return. The work and staff are a step above the rest. I would (and have) highly recommend anyone looking for an Austin dentist to visit Dr Yarbrough. My wife also sees Dr Yarbrough. She has an intense dental phobia. Of the three offices she has been to over the last 15 years Westgate Dental is the only one I can get her to make an appt with. They seem to do very well with those who experience that sort of anxiety.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Yarbrough’s for almost 25 years and he is the best along with his staff and office environment. I walk in to the office and am immediately relaxed. Everyone there is always to upbeat and happy, I walk out with a smile on my face and that not just because my teeth are newly cleaned. I genuinely have a good experience every time. Thank you Dr. Yarbrough and staff for providing a great service along with a great atmosphere! Karin Brauner

How often can one say the best part of their day was my dentist appointment!  Dr. Yarbrough and his team are fantastic and once you walk in the door you feel like you are just visiting a friend for an hour. Katie was awesome and truly does a great job.  She is gentle yet thorough and her contagious positive energy allows you to just sit back and let her do her magic.  Liz is always wonderful and boy does she know what she’s doing when it comes to all this new insurance stuff.  Dr. Latiolais is a great addition to this AWESOME team!  He is warm and welcoming and I have really enjoyed his advice so far on my oral health!  Thanks y’all for all you do!!!!

The dental hygienist and other staff were very friendly and had great customer service. The dental hygienist asked me about things going on in my life that I had talked about in my previous appointment which made me feel so much better coming into my appointment. Keep up the amazing customer service!

Geraldine M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yarbrough was our family dentist in college; was so glad to discover he’s in the same place now when we moved back to Austin. I’m low maintenance with dental care – having no significant dental problems. But there’s never much of a wait, and the hygienists and staff are top notch. My  husband has had several fillings and crowns, and he says the work that Dr. Yarbrough has done has never caused him a problem or needed to be redone. If you want the best quality dental care from a team that treats you like a rock star, this is the place.

Irene K. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Yarbrough for over 7 years. We trust him and his staff very much and they have always done a great job. EVERYONE at his office is very nice (same people have been their forever- so you know it is a nice place to work). Everyone is very easy to talk to, they fit you in if you have an emergency, heck I can remember having a horrible toothache and calling th eoffice emergency line Dr. Yarbrough called me back and it was over a holiday break– he called in some pain medicine and fit me in for an appointment first thing the next morning. I have referred several friends and they have all been very happy also. They are a very caring group of people at Dr. Yarbrough’s and we feel very lucky to have found them.

It’s hard to get excited about dentist appointments but my family has been going Westgate Family Dental for over 20 years and each time I go there I realize what a special place it is. We are always treated well, the staff remembers our names, the service/procedures are excellent. We moved out of Austin many years ago and tried different dentist but we always end up going back there even if it is a long drive for us.

Dr Yarbrough and his staff are wonderful. He is the best dentist I have ever had and has wonderful hygienist who do a great job. The office staff works with you when you have big expenses and I appreciate being able to break down the payments.

Dr. Yarbrough and his staff are the best, time after time after time. Consistent, caring, friendly, efficient, careful, and make you feel so welcome. Makes you look forward to Novocaine in the gums and the sound of the drill!

I love everyone here. The Dentist is very nice and funny. I smile more now that the Dr fixed my chipped tooth. Melissa is a wonderful hygienist and I always feel comfortable with her and so do my children. I look forward to my appointments now. I would definitely recommend

Coming to this office is always a pleasant experience, from Christy at the reception desk to Liz at the payment desk. Who says that about going to the dentist? I am sure Dr. Yarbrough’s other patients agree. I must add that I have been a patient here since 1999, and every single person that I have encountered here is professional, friendly, and concerned with my comfort and best interest in treating me.

This is my second time coming here and everybody has been extremely kind and accommodating. Christine at check in was wonderful and the doctors are very knowledgeable and skilled! Shari helped with my root canal procedure and she was just amazing and super knowledgeable. I really felt like I was in great hands. Checkout was also a very pleasant experience and they really work with you to get your payments as easy for you as possible. All of the staff I’ve had the pleasure of meeting are absolutely wonderful!

I have been going to Westgate family dental for over ten years and I have never been disappointed. The office is clean and pleasant and the staff is very friendly, comforting and professional. Wendy is amazing and takes very good care of the patients and of course Dr. Yarbrough is the best dentist in south Austin. I highly recommend their dental care!

Kaitlyn B. from Pflugerville, TX (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about Westgate…they work with my ever revolving schedule and always manage to get me in ASAP when I need to be seen. Every staff member goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, and Dr. Yarbrough thoroughly explains your plan of care. Unfortunately my dental issues were so bad that I had to be seen multiple times throughout the pandemic, and I felt safe every single appointment. The staff does a fantastic job making sure everything is as sanitary as possible, and you constantly see them wiping down surfaces, changing gloves, etc. I drive 40 minutes to this office just for the insanely high levels of safety and patient care! Would 100% recommend, 5 stars all the way

Wendy is just total awesome, extremely caring and professional. I’m on the Invisalign program and ran into some issues (e.g., dog chewing one of my trays—I’m not kidding!) and she was ready and available to help, even coming over to the dentist office on a weekend one time to address an issue. If only I could find a similarly reliable car mechanic and a tax accountant!

I have been a patient with Dr. Yarbrough for 30 years. He is a wonderful dentist and has continued to modernize his office, equipment, and procedures to enhance his business. His staff has remained with him over the years. They are friendly, caring, and professional whether for cleaning teeth, assisting Dr. Y, billing, and scheduling appointments. I called this morning with a denture issue. Got me in at 1:30 and done by 2:30. Perfectly satisfied!

Penny S. from Brookline, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been visiting Dr. Yarbrough for nearly 30 years. Even when I lived out of state, I would still keep my regular appointments with Dr. Y, because he’s just wonderful. The staff there are friendly and make a genuine effort to get to know you. Dr. Y is honest, lighthearted, and always goes above and beyond to not only provide you with excellent care – he has always tried to save me money – telling me honestly what he must do, and what he could hold off on doing if expense is a concern. I noticed a 2 star review here because someone’s insurance is out-of-network. My insurance has been out-of-network for 10 years with Dr. Y, and I still only pay $10-25 for my 2x yearly cleaning. Even though Dr. Y is out-of-network, his office still submits claims to my insurance provider (which isn’t required, but greatly appreciated). And, many dental insurances do provide significant out-of-network benefits (so visiting an out-of-network dentist is not as daunting as an out of network medical provider). Check your insurance benefits, and you will likely have no issue visiting Dr. Y. I’ve found his care to be compassionate, professional, fun (yes, fun), and very affordable!

I chose Dr. Yarbrough and Westgate Dental because of the reviews I found on here and I can say, in all honesty, that was absolutely the best dental experience I have ever had. From Christina who took my initial phone call, to Dr. Yarbrough, to the wonderful lady who processed my insurance, every single one of them were top notch. My dental hy

Gary G. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I still call Westgate Family Dental my home for dental needs. Westgate Family Dental staff has always presented nothing less than professionalism…From the time you walk in until the time you walk out the door. I have seen some of the other dental businesses in Austin and how they work and I can honestly say that Westgate Family Dental is, by far, the best. 5 Star for sure! A Very Friendly, Courteous and Loving Staff that care about your needs for a beautiful smile.

1130 appointment was late…..started at 1150. But Wendy advised me in the waiting room. Very professional crown-crowning. They really seem to be up on all the latest equipment in their office. An enjoyable experience (except for novocaine shot, drilling and all the equipment in my mouth !!!) Keep up the great work.

Keith Johnson (Source: Google)


The best as always. It starts at the front desk with the friendliest staff. I think I have the best, most thorough hygienist with Melissa…glad you are back. Wendy handles all the cosmetic items along with fitting me with my 4th night guard…darn dogs. Dr. Yarborough is the consummate gentleman and makes you feel at ease. Liz takes your money..but I won’t hold that against her…she’s sweeter at that than anyone I’ve known…and she makes sure your insurance is kicking in when it needs to. Thanks again. You all rock.

Ed S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


You know how it goes – we sometimes take the ones we love for granted. No one likes dental work – sorry, Dr. Yarbrough. But you and your team have been there for us for years. You don’t have scary 1970s dental technology. You fix our teeth when they flare up out of the blue. You don’t lecture us even though we were addicted to soda and still don’t floss totally right. Best of all, you sometimes have candy by Liz’s checkout. Cavities or not, we’ll keep coming back.

Carmella M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Yarbrough was the Dentist that listen to me. The office was clean, staff was helpful and friendly they offered to set my appointment according to my insurance guide lines. I would recommend him to those with a fear of a dentist to see him .the price that was charge, even though I used my insurance was a great to have some change left over he did it fair and square and did not gouge me ,I still have some money in the bank after this visit.

Julie C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


What a great staff. Everyone working at this office is genuinely very friendly, no fake smiles like I’ve experienced in other places. My appointment was with the hygienist (Melissa) and she did a great job. She has a sturdy hand and is obviously very experienced. At the end of my session I met Dr. Yardbrough who came in to do an exam (part of the cleaning cost, it’s routine for 1st time patients) . A real friendly doctor, very polite, and who took his time meeting me and speaking with me. usually dentists (in my experience at least) just come in and drill and then leave. A much different experience at this place. So all in all, I highly recommend it.

I’ve never seen a Doctor and staff so committed to excellence and incredible dental care. If you are looking for dentist that is down to earth and committed to treating the patient and exceeding your expectations, then you have to come see Dr. Yarbrough. His staff has been with him forever, to me, that says everything and the proof is in his sincerity and honesty!
