Patient Reviews

“The entire team at Fife Dental is professional, friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. Moreover, their approach is relaxed and comfortable which aids in understanding issues and areas which require greater focus by the patient.”

David D


“I always have a great visit at Fife! Marla and Dr. Fife are so awesome and welcoming! Marla is definitely the warmest and friendliest dental hygienist I’ve ever had! You can definitely tell they care about their patients. I definitely recommend them!”

Allison T


“Coming in not only as a new patient, but a new patient in quite a bit of pain needing an extraction. I was beside myself with anxiety and pain. Dr. Fife and his whole staff were so nice and calming and got me in right away to have my procedure without anxiety. I plan on continuing to have my dental issues addressed with Dr. Fife’s office and have a happier, healthier and stress free mouth!”



“I had a procedure which I had performed twice many years ago…both times extremely painful. I was very apprehensive to go through this again. This time my experience was so different being totally pain free and completely comfortable. I would never delay this procedure again…as long as FIFE Dental preforms the work. Thank you all for a wonderful experience!”

Very friendly and professional.”

Marian K


“I have always had a phobia when it came to the dentist and had neglected going to the dentist for several years. Dr Fife and his staff are caring professionals and put me at ease. I will be keeping up with and no longer neglecting my dental care!”



“If you are seeking nonjudgmental dentistry with the kindest staff ever, this is the place! They can do sedative dentistry and that makes all the difference in the world! Dr. Fife is amazing. He handled my phobia like he does it all the time. I will continue to go even with my phobia!”



“This was my first appointment in 20 years. I was ashamed and embarrassed about my phobia. Everyone there was extremely nice and non- judgmental! They made me feel so much better and I feel like they understand my fears and will genuinely help me!”



“I wanted to mark excellent but couldn’t erase the other stars. My visit was very pleasant. Everyone was so kind. But most of all Dr. Fife gave me my smile back. I was so ashamed of how I looked. Didn’t want to go anywhere because I didn’t want to talk to anyone. Thank you so much! If there were 10 stars for excellent that’s where I would rate you and staff.”



“I’m not really pro dentist, but yesterday’s visit to your office has changed my perception some. Everyone at the office was professional. I was impressed at being addressed by name when entering for my dental work. My time in “the chair” was not as I had remembered from other past experiences. Even though there was drilling involved, I was quite comfortable with the numbness & tropical island distraction on the tv monitor. I am looking forward to my next visit. A change from my usual dreading to visit the dentist.”



“Given my first experience with Dr Fife which I rate a high 5, my expectation was that I would also have a good experience for any follow-on appointments. I was spot on about Dental Hygienist, Marla. What a great experience! Professional, thorough, great chair side manner, passionate about her work, and very informative. I’m recommending Fife Dental Care to all my friends.”

Roxanne F


“I have always been extremely nervous to go to the dentist. The atmosphere as soon as your enter Dr. Fife’s office puts you at ease. Very friendly staff, and Dr Fife is excellent at putting your at ease. I left my appointment with a good understanding of my health plan and looking forward to my next visit. Thank you!”



“Dr Fife and staff are professional and kind. Dr Fife is very skilled and compassionate. I appreciate him and his staff.”



“very good”



“It was a great experience”



“Every person in this office is friendly and caring, sensitive to the patient’s (that would be me) needs. Waiting time is brief. As a dental phobic patient, I was made to feel at ease. Dr. Fife explains everything fully and listens carefully. And here’s the amazing thing. I recently moved here from the East Coast and had not yet sought a dentist. I was awakened in the middle of the night with an awful, throbbing pain. For the next two hours I searched extensively online and “something” made me choose Dr. Fife. I left an email; the phone rang early in the morning, with a concerned staff member asking a few questions and suggesting that I come in right away. The rest is history. This “fraidy cat” is thrilled to have found her foreve…”



“She was so kind! & Helpful”



“I feel comfortable with everyone at Fife Dental Care and am secure knowing they have my best interest at heart.”



“I believe that Dr. Fife is truly an honest individual who really cares for his patients. I have been to him on several occasions and have not been sold any unnecessary procedures. My wife had a bridge done by Dr. Fife and is very pleased. I have worked in the dental field (lab) and am leery of dentists in general. The staff is welcoming and professional. Nice clean office makes this dental practice truly “First Class”. I highly recommend Dr. Fife and his staff!”



“The staff was friendly, thorough, and explained in detail what they were doing and how to continue dental well care. This was my first visit however, it did not feel that way they were all very welcoming. I did mention it to Dr. Fife Lake great staff he had in his office. Thank you!”

Laura M


“First time patient with Fife. I am very pleased with this visit and believe this will be my permanent dentist moving forward. I would highly recommend this dental office.”

Bill L


“Everyone at Fife Dental is very friendly and sincerely concerned with your well being. I am so glad to have found them.”



“Went in thinking I needed a root canal because of the discomfort I was experiencing. A thorough exam by Dr. Fife and the diagnosis was to adjust fit on some crowns by some minor grinding. Was a great surprise and greatly appreciated.”

David P


“I missed my early appointment but was still able to get in the same day for a cleaning. Marla is always personable, courteous and sensitive to the patient’s needs. The office staff is top notch.”

Jerry G


“I had a fantastic visit today. Everyone was very professional and courteous. The hygienist was knowledgeable, skilled, and friendly. I can’t remember the last time my teeth felt so clean! Thank you!”



“At Fife Dental, I have at long last found a dentist that I am not afraid of. Their gentle treatment and empathy combined with open honest communication is helping me combat a life time of dental phobia.”

Liz R


“Excellent service! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly! I will continue to go here, and I’ve already recommended to friends and family.”



“All of the staff were very nice and professional. I have major anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist, and they were very considerate of that and would ask me if I was still doing ok throughout the procedure. I am very happy with the service I received.”



“I clicked the excellent star because all the people I have come in contact with (including Dr. Fife, of course) are far more knowledgeable, willing to answer questions, gentle, and professional than any dentist office I have used in the past. No one seems rushed when I am their patient. I am 56 years old, and I am a Registered Nurse. I have a lot of experience in dentist chairs, and I always have questions! Finding Dr. Fife and his staff is a real bonus in my heath and peace of mind.”

Anne N


“Always on time, very courteous and professional, as well as friendly.”



“I thought Dr. Fife had a very sensitive touch. I’ve never had a dentist or tech do those depth reading so skillfully. It was refreshing to not have a dentist try to sell me a Mercedes for my Volkswagen mouth.”

Phil M


“I have been scared to go to a dentist for a long time for various reasons, not the least of which is cost. They have a very relaxed atmosphere and it’s nice to see they take that into account.”

Konelio M


This is a very professional practice. It was quite personable in person, also. Information was flowing most of the time. Lots of answers to my questions. Great advice, also. There should be a star for outstanding. Most painless extraction ever. Nice surprise with the price and performing the procedure the very same day while I was there. Beautiful website; warm professional offices; plus super troopers Stacy and Charles were great.

J.R. C.


Very experienced, professional clinical staff



I didn’t have to wait forever. Everyone was knowledgeable and Friendly. The Doctor Fife was fast and gave me the information that I need to take in the near future. Nice Guy….. In a word “Excellent”. Thank you, Bill

Bill M


Everything was perfect. I am very excited to be getting a great set of dentures!!!!!!!!!!!

Judy S


Very Well Received!

Wayne J


Dr. Fife took care of all my current dental needs in one visit! He was very courteous and made sure that I was aware of every procedure he was doing as he was doing it. I was told that my visit would be approximately 2 hours and he finished within the two hours. He was very professional. I would definitely recommend his practice to my family and friends.



Gentle and compassionate dentist and kind, professional staff. Best filling experience I have had in over 20 years! Not that I want any more cavities, but Dr. Fife is the one I would choose to “fill” the job.



Thank you for fitting me in on such short notice today to fix my front tooth. You and your staff are fantastic.

Matt G


Professionalism and courteous describe Dr. Fife and his staff. I can’t imagine going anywhere else.

Larry P


I was introduced to patient accoutrements such as the Netfix programs on nature topics that were a nice touch. The staff were all polite, professional and even friendly. The headlight used by Hygienist Marla was new technology to me, and more comfortable than glaring lights I’d become accustomed to in the past. The service was thorough, with explanations at each step. The office generally was “squeaky clean” even though I wasn’t. I left feeling well informed about follow up actions to expect as well as pricing for each item or procedure. If there was anything even approaching needed criticism it would be the repetitiveness of the forms to be completed.



Got an appointment relatively soon for a non-pain issues. All staff was attentive, caring, and prompt.



Great care!



This is a delightful office of friendly, professional people! They have state-of-the-art equipment, and expertise to match. While nobody necessarily “enjoys” a trip to the dentist, we can honestly say that we do enjoy our trips to Fife Dental!

Tracy S


Dr. Fife is the best–only dentist I’ve ever found that I trust; he is caring, knowledgeable, and professional. If you are afraid of dentists. He works with you.



Dr. Fife evaluated the issues with my dentures and offered solutions to solve the problems, Appreciated very much my visit with him.

Judy S


Superb dental care by smart people who care about what they do. Dr Fife is a highly skilled dentist who confidently handles any problem you may have. I highly recommend Dr Fife and staff for any and all dental needs, including cosmetic dentistry.

Ed A


Best Dentist I have had in my live, Marla is awesome, Dr. Fife is awesome. I actually look forward to my visits

Brian H


I had an appointment for a cleaning today. My appointment was on time, which is a big plus in my experience. The office staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the office process, billing and scheduling procedures. I feel so comfortable and attended to, Stacy and Marla make me feel like I have been coming there for years. Dr. Fife always greets me before he puts on his mask. He is easy to talk to and encourages questions and gives explanations that I can understand. I feel like I am valued as a patient and a person here. We found Dr. Fife by accident, and I am so glad we did. My husband had a dental emergency the day before the Christmas holidays and Dr. Fife was the only dentist we could find that would see him before January…
