Testimonials

We value each patient's experience. Please read below to find out what our happy patients are saying about us!

  • ""We were so happy to visit Doctors Vu and Ray's family dentistry practice. On scoping out our accessible path, first we saw the building from the back of the Narrows Town Center, along the historic road (Shelby CR 280), and then we spotted their large sign on the top level. A gentle sloping drive up led to where we would enter at a very easy, accessible front elevation facing toward U.S. Hwy 280. This is a calming, health promoting and professional dentistry practice for the entire family with every patient's experience given the BEST!""

  • ""Had a wonderful experience with Valley Ridge! They were extremely welcoming when I stopped by to see about becoming a new patient. Sherri helped me immediately getting me the information I needed and an appointment on the books. When I showed up for my appointment they got me back quickly, made sure I was comfortable the whole time, and did this all in a timely manner! If you are looking for a local dentist I highly recommend giving them a call!""
