What patients are saying about Dr. Slaughter and his staff:
We went to Dr Slaughter yesterday for my 7 year old daughter’s baby tooth. She had a tooth that needed to be pulled and he squeezed her right in. She wasn’t the best patient but he did an excellent job handling her!!! Slaughter and his assistant/hygienist are very kid friendly! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!!! Dr. Kemmer found an excellent replacement for us! 🙂
Dr. Slaughter and his staff are absolutely amazing. If your looking for a dentist office who really cares about you and the service they are offering look no further they are the BEST. Thanks so much for everything Riverbend you all are amazing!
Going to the dentist stinks anyway but they treat you like family and work with you in every way possible. Highly recommend!!!!!!
Dr. Slaughter and his staff are the best! If you’re looking for a professional, highly knowledgeable dental team, that is family oriented and friendly, I highly recommend Riverbend Dentistry.
Thank you for taking such good care of me and my family!They got me in real quick. Staff was very nice and family oriented. I really liked how quick the procedure was and I had no discomfort. Thank you everyone!
In a special needs world there are all sorts of experiences. Some good. Some bad. A couple of years ago we had a traumatic experience with the dentist. So much in fact, I was very hesitant to find a new one for [patient]. One of our clients at Zimmer is Riverbend Dentistry – Dr. Tyler W. Slaughter, DDS. Before making an appointment, I did a lot of snooping about Dr. Tyler and his crew. With serious trepidation, I made a dental appointment. On the day of the appointment, we were greeted by friendly faces and warm hearts. I was so nervous. [Patient] cannot handle her secretions very well, so I was worried about how she would handle having all of those instruments in her mouth. Reassured at every moment, Dr. Tyler’s crew was AMAZING! They were calming me and [patient] the entire time. They were gentle and slow. They talked her through everything and gave her time to actually process what was happening to her. They cheered her on and encouraged her when she needed it. I couldn’t believe the experience we were having. Not only did Dr. Tyler and his staff help us to overcome a horrible experience, they made us feel comfortable and secure. I would HIGHLY recommend Riverbend Dentistry for any of my friends with special needs children, or anyone with children in general! This was OUTSTANDING customer service and a JOB WELL DONE. We are lucky to have Dr. Tyler and his entire crew right here in Jefferson City!
Great experience today at Riverbend Dentistry. Dr. Slaughter and staff explained all procedures in a way my children could understand. They felt comfortable and we all had a positive experience. I was happy with the time Dr. Slaughter took, to personally explain in detail, information I needed regarding our check ups. Would highly recommend this dental office for anyone needing a family dentist.
I just had my first appointment with Dr. Slaughter today, and I am very impressed by everyone there. They took the time to thoroughly check everything like fillings and explained both what they were doing and anything that caught their attention, which is more than my last dentist ever did. They even recognized what product line of mouthwash I’ve been using based on some observations during the cleaning and gave me some alternative recommendations. I’m very glad I switched dentists based on his team’s level of expertise, professionalism and friendliness.
That was the quickest and easiest dental visit I have ever had. You all were really quick to get me seen and taken care of. Dr. Slaughter and his staff are very professional and I look forwards to my next visit! Thank you guys so much.
I want to thank you Dr. Slaughter for the awesome job you did on my daughter yesterday!! You made her smile beautiful!! I would and will recommend anyone!! Thank you!!
