Giving Back To Our Community

We love the community we belong to, and the community has returned that love by voting us one of the best practices in Yuma in 2013 and 2014. Supporting community events like the Children’s Art Festival and the Women’s Expo is our honor and privilege. For the past four years, our doctors and staff members have volunteered at the annual Central Arizona Dental Mission of Mercy. This charity event provides dental care to patients in need. We love participating in this event and enjoy seeing our neighbors leave with a restored smile and boosted confidence. Many patients have reported that the event helped them return to the workforce. Often, these patients return to volunteer their time at the event.

I have lived in many states and been to many dentists. Gila Ridge Dental is a top notch facility. The entire staff is friendly, accommodating, and professional. The dental hygienists are gentle and thorough. Dr. Garner filled a few cavities for me and he is excellent at what he does. Even the lidocaine shot barely hurt! View On Facebook
