We had some concern when Dr Tall sold it to Dr Darrington but we have found the services to be as good or better in the change. The staff is trained in the most up to date technology and procedures. The The Receptionists, Hygienists, and Doctors are professional and caring.”

-Misty Prouse

“I have never liked going to the dentist, but my experience with Sandcreek Dental and especially with Dr. Sam Smith and Teena Barnes was amazing. They did everything to make me comfortable and understand exact what they were doing and why. They made no pushes to upsell me on anything, only made recommendations and explained why. They are honest and fantastic at what they do! Would recommend them to anyone looking for a new dental office.”

-Chase Vance

“I was able to be seen same day for an emergency, and had the best experience from the moment I walked in. The office was the most beautiful I’ve ever been to, and every member of the staff was kind from start to finish. Dr. Darrington explained everything he was doing and always made sure I wasn’t in any pain.”

-Amanda Frey

“My favorite dentist!! Dr. Darrington is confident in what he does and it puts my mind at ease. He is sharp and has the ability to make it a fun place to be. The dental assistants are amazing and the front desk staff are very accommodating and so friendly.”

-Lois Allen

“Wonderful staff. Dr. Darlington fixed my front tooth on the very 1st visit, where it took my previous dentist 2 times, and he still couldn’t fix it. Dr. Sam Smith is also a great dentist, made me feel comfortable and cared for. Front office staff greet you immediately and are very understanding when it comes to the patients. They are the best dental group I have ever gone to. I look forward to my future visits, and I trust them with my dental health care. I also want to thank the front receptionist for the kind words she gave when my husband was in a coma due to covid. Thanks for the kind and heart-felt words you shared that day.”

-Maria Aguinaga

“We have had quite a traumatic experience at another dentist, but we were taken under their wing like an old friend! Their bedside manor was impeccable, they were quick and efficient, and went above and beyond to get us settled in! I’m confident we made the right choice in our switch!”
