Dr Call is very awesome and funny, Dr Jackson is also tells any issues you simply so you can have a good grasp of what’s going on. This is a dentist office I will always be coming to as long as I live here in utah!!"
"Dr. Call and Dr. Jackson are awesome. They've taken the time to ensure a family member was extremely well taken care of and it says a lot about their character!"
"My family and I recently switched over to Oakridge Dental. Dr Jackson, Taylor, and Becca are great. They were thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Don’t forget to ask Taylor for her mouth rinse recommendations!"
"The hygienists are all friendly and well trained, and I usually see Dr. Jackson for my dentist. I bring my toddler there too, and regardless if the appointment is for her or for myself, the staff is accepting and friendly towards both of us, which is so relieving. My appointments usually go smoothly and quickly, but for the longer work, they let you watch shows on a TV mounted to the ceiling."
