“I would like to take the time to thank Richard for the wonderful care he has provided me for many years. I am a long time client because above all things I know he cares for me and my health and takes the time to assist me in knowing and doing what is right to remain healthy. He is clearly on top of technology and developments and whole-health benefits. I am also very excited to be part of his membership program which has saved me a lot of money. Thanks Richard and congratulations on your new office and wonderful location.” — Jeff Wells

“Dr. Anderson was outstanding at explaining what he was going to do, and what he was doing as he was doing it! He spoke in layman’s terms so that the patient (me) clearly understood what was happening. He also was extremely careful and deftly maneuvered in my pried open big mouth without even a twinge of pain to me! One of the best dental experiences I have (honestly) ever experienced. Hmmmm…Wonder if he could perform brain surgery on me when I do something stupid? 🙂” — Even M.

“I have horrible anxiety when it comes to dentist and shots. Dr Anderson is freaking awesome and understanding. This is by far the best dental experience I’ve had in years. Will cone back again for sure. Highly recommend seeing him.” — Bst P.

“I called THE ēSSENTIAL DENTIST because I had an onlay break loose and wanted to get it replaced before the Thanksgiving holiday. Dr. Anderson’s office was able to fit me in almost immediately. Not only did I receive top-notch dental care, but I also had my entire restoration completed within 1 hour! Dr. Anderson was truly able to provide same-day dentistry. The best part of my visit was expecting pain and not receiving any! I highly recommend THE ēSSENTIAL DENTIST if you or your family are looking for a TOP quality, compassionate dentist in Pleasant Grove, UT.” — Kyle K.

“Dr. Anderson makes going to the dentist a wonderful experience. He, and his team, focus on a holistic approach which helps me know exactly what habits I need to form to keep a healthy mouth and body. This is different from any other dentist I visited who tend to only focus on my current problems, rather than teaching me to how to prevent future ones. All of the staff cares about you and your needs. They are willing to help you and explain every procedure. Having a caring staff lends to the already calming and relaxing atmosphere of the office. I don’t know much about dental technology, but everything they use (and their explanation of what it’s for) looks like a major upgrade from any other office I’ve been to. They have some pretty cool stuff. All of this comes with a nice price tag as well. The membership program is affordable and easy. I don’t have to deal with insurance reps not approving my claims and the program itself is cheaper than having and using dental insurance. Overall, this is the only 5-star dental review I’ve ever given. If you’re looking for a team of professionals who makes going to the dentist a good experience, this is the place to go!” — Trevor Campbell

“The office environment feels warm and inviting. The staff was very kind from my first interaction. Their assistant, Erin, could tell I was a bit nervous before my appointment even began, but took the time to help me calm down by offering a pleasant menu of aromatherapy (I chose one called Serenity which smelled both soothing and sweet) and taught me some simple breathing techniques. Wow! Dr. Anderson was friendly and very knowledgeable. I appreciated how he took the time to explain the treatment I needed with my own pictures, x-rays, 3D x-rays(these are so cool!) and some educational videos that they texted right to my phone. I left feeling like they genuinely care about me and have confidence that I will be receiving the best treatment I need to restore my dental health.” — Erica V.
