Yuma's Best Dentist Dedicated to Serving You and Your Family for Years to Come

We are proud to provide comprehensive, exceptional dental care for your entire family. Drs. Thor G. Thorson and Stephen S. Garner and their team work hard to consistently maintain a warm, welcoming atmosphere for our patients. Every member of our staff will go out of the way to make you feel at home. We offer comprehensive general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry for your entire family and cater to patients of all ages. At Gila Ridge Dental, we strive to be your best dentist for life in Yuma, AZ.

We love the community we belong to, and for the last few years, the community has returned that love by voting us one of the best dental practices in Yuma

Our Comfortable Office

Our contemporary dental office sits on 24th Street, just east of the Tamarack Center and South of Arizona Western College. From the art on our walls to the welcome you will receive in our office, we have created an inviting atmosphere to make you and your loved ones feel comfortable. Our reception area features a television, and we have monitors in each treatment room for you to watch movies during lengthy procedures. 

Our Outstanding Services

Our doctors and staff employ the latest dental technology to provide convenient, comfortable care, clinical accuracy, and efficient appointments. We offer same-day restorations with the CEREC® system. We also use digital x-rays, so you will not have to endure messy impressions. Our soft tissue laser eliminates the need for stitches in gum surgery. In addition, because dental emergencies can happen at any time, we always do our best to see emergency patients the same day.

We also offer a variety of financing options to help all of our patients receive the vital care they need. We accept both CareCredit℠ and Lending Club, allowing our patients to pay for dental work with fixed-, low-, and no-interest financing plans.

Supporting Our Community

We love the community we belong to, and for the last few years, the community has returned that love, by voting us one of the best practices in Yuma, AZ in 2013 and 2014. Supporting community events like the Children’s Art Festival and the Women’s Expo is our honor and privilege.

Gila Ridge Dental volunteering at Mission of Mercy Dr. Garner at Mission of Mercy

Our doctors and staff at the annual Central Arizona Dental Mission of Mercy

For the past four years, our doctors and staff members have also volunteered at the annual Central Arizona Dental Mission of Mercy. This charity event creates a temporary clinic, where we provide dental care to patients who otherwise could not afford it. We love participating in this event and enjoy seeing our neighbors leave with a restored smile that conveys confidence. Many past patients have reported that the event helped them return to the work force, and they return later to volunteer their time at the event.
