"I don’t even know where to begin in explaining how extremely happy and grateful I am that I found South River Dentistry. I have avoided going to the dentist for many year because of how afraid I was due to previous horrific experiences at other practices.

My first visit was nothing but full of positive experiences. From the moment I walked in the office, till I left the building. Everyone was extremely genuinely welcoming and warm and made me feel very relaxed, they were very comforting. They could tell I was very nervous and anxious, probably because I was literally shaking, but they worked their magic and made the process as pleasant as they could.

After they took X-rays and had my first visit examination, I did had some extensive work that needed to be done, but Doctor Blackburn was very comforting and helpful in explaining the procedures that needed to be done to get my mouth and teeth back to a healthy place, and the way he delivered the news was in such a way that didn’t scare me and made me feel at easy about what needed to be done. At my first deep cleaning session, they even asked me what what was my favorite music and played it for me while they were working on me. I tell you, these people will bend over backwards to help you feel as comfortable as possible.

Now, I do have to brag about my favorite hygienist, Wendy. She has been soooo amazing. Is like talking to an old friend. My case has not been the easiest, but she is always so cheerful, encouraging and happy to work with me. And I don’t know how she does it, but even when she has her tools inside my mouth, some how she manages to understand every word “trying” to come out of my mouth lol. She is very patient with me and has been since the first time she worked on me.

Doctor Blackburn and his amazing team have transformed my smile into something I didn’t even know it could be. They helped me find confidence I didn’t know I had. And for the first time in my life, I actually look forward to going to the dentist. Did I really just say that???? They’d have made this process enjoyable and have always been upfront about everything, cost, procedures, time it will take etc. If you have been working the courage to give a dentist a second try (and you really should) I highly encourage you to visit South River Dentistry. You won’t regret it.

I will be forever grateful to them. Thank you!!!"

“Dr. Blackburn and all of your amazing staff—I can’t thank you enough for the gift you have given me, my smile!! Words truly can’t describe how I feel. You have completely changed my life and the reality is starting to set in. I have a two year old son and thanks to you, I get to take my first picture with him and I am so happy! It makes me so happy to look in the mirror and know I don’t have to hide anymore. You all made that possible. Going to the dentist has always been an overwhelming, intimidating experience but between you and your kind, non-judgmental, helpful, sincere and caring staff you all allowed me to face my biggest fear and as a result you made my biggest dream come true—TO SMILE! I never thought this day would come. Thank you all for your patience and giving me confidence again. South River Dentistry has changed me forever! I will never be able to thank you all enough.”


“Dr. Jeff Blackburn is the best dentist I have ever been to, he cares about his patients. I also want to add, that he saved my life, by finding cancer in my mouth, and for that I will be forever grateful!! He has given my life back, along with a beautiful smile. Thank You Dr. Blackburn!!”


“As always, the experience was perfect. I was taken upon arrival, everyone was friendly, and when I’m there I feel welcome and appreciated.”


“Doctor Blackburn is sooooo nice and friendly …along with the rest of the staff… I love my new smile!”


“I have been seeing Dr. Jeff for about 18 years and LOVE this practice! Very warm and friendly and always professional. I feel like my family and I am in excellent hands and recommend South River Dentistry to everyone! “


“The staff at South River Dentistry are always extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend it to everyone I know because I am confident they will never be disappointed. “


“The NICEST Dentist. They are so welcoming there. It has been a number of years since I went to the dentist and they were very understanding and nice.”


“Dr. Blackburn and his staff are exceptional. I’m the typical male, put things off until it was out of hand and too late to save some teeth. Dr. Blackburn and his staff performed what I consider to be major work and I was 110% comfortable before, during and after the surgery. I wish I had gone long before now and I’m actually looking forward to my next visit . . . go figure. Thank you for giving me the confidence to smile again.”


“I went in with a very painful abscess and had to pay out of pocket since I don’t currently have insurance. The staff was very friendly and they got me in and out in 45 minutes and for less than $270. They were very gentle and made every effort to make me comfortable and minimize my pain and discomfort, both physically and eased the emotional stress of the situation. They were able to do a same day appointment since it was an emergency and also gave me some great advice for getting my smile back on the right track.”


“Having a tooth removed at South River Dentistry was simple and painless. The services were excellent in every way, provided by a fine staff. Many thanks!”


“Consistently–the absolute best staff in any office of any medical profession I have ever visited. I always feel like I am valued as a person, not just for the business. I have tried to duplicate this in my own business and never quite made it. It is so challenging to find genuine people willing to care about customers. This shows the culture Dr. Blackburn has created is beyond compare, and his patients feel it! Thank you. “
