What Our Patients Are Saying:

“The experience was amazing. My extraction was quick and painless, with very little discomfort. Within less than 48 hours, I had stopped using the pain medication that the doctor prescribed for me. I will be getting my implants at MVOMS as well. I’m thankful for such friendly and professional services!”

— Nicholas C.


“I had a real fear of dental procedures, but the friendliness, professionalism, and kindness of the front desk receptionists, dental assistants, and Dr. Miner all helped me get through my dental emergency. Kudos to such a great staff!”

— Mary R.


“Thank you so much for your quick, professional & kind service.  My daughter came in July with an infection, one day before a scheduled trip to China.  You made her trip possible and I just wanted to tell you how grateful we are. She’s doing well, and has visited Forbidden City and much more already – thanks to you all!” 

— Chris B. 


“Dr. Riding should be commended for all aspects of how he conducts himself — as a surgeon and a human being. He made me feel like he really cared about my well being, and he treated me as a person rather than just another patient. The staff were also all super awesome and attentive.”

— Homa K.


“I’ve had surgery with both Dr. Riding and Dr. Smith. Both were wonderful — as was everyone else in the practice that I’ve met.” 

— Barbara W.


“Every staff member I came in contact with during my two visits were friendly and professional. Dr. Hammond was wonderful. Although I’ve always been frightened of dentists and dentistry, he was gentle and reassuring. It had a really calming effect on me. The staff member who explained the pre-op and post-op procedures was very thorough. She was also attentive and watchful during my time in the recovery room. In general, this was a very positive experience for me.” 

— Lee S.


“The entire staff is professional — helpful and friendly. I feel blessed to know Dr. Hammond and the staff. Jackie particularly stands out. From the start, she helped me set up my first appointment, explaining about all the billing procedures and getting me set up for the financing. Without her assistance, I would not have been able to go through with my treatment.”

— John D.


“As far as I’m concerned, the MVOMS team deserves five stars. Dr.Smith is an excellent surgeon, very skilled. He also is caring and explains everything thoroughly. Moreover, he performed surgery that most oral surgeons would not have undertaken. I feel very pleased — and grateful.” 

— Stephanie S.


“After a few minutes in the MVOMS office, you get the feeling you’re in good hands, with a well-educated and caring staff. The woman who took my information and walked me through the video was so helpful. She really helped me wiht the nervousness I was experiencing. The receptionist was also friendly and nice — not stone-faced and cold like many that I have met. And my surgeon was really great. Thank you!”

— Joseph M.


Dr. Hammond and Vicky have been amazing! Very professional — and Dr. Hammond’s demeanor gave me the impression of complete competence. I felt confident throughout my dealings with him. Also, recently due to a slight complication with the crown that MVOMS had nothing to do with, Dr Hammond stepped in to help me try to resolve the problem. They really went above and beyond what they had to do.”
