"My older daughter has braces with Sarver. I brought my 10 year old to be evaluated. After evaluating my daughter’s teeth and her xrays, he said we should wait a year to evaluate again and she may not need braces. That is so assuring that you can go to someone honest as I assumed she would need braces bc her sister did.

"Dr. Sarver and Erica did a phenomenal job. Especially with all the COVID-19 still around, they had in place procedures that give you confidence such as staggering entrance into office, use of face masks, face guards and gloves while performing services, sanitizing the pen before handing it to you and even using a sanitizing wipe on your credit card before returning it to you. Just great! I will say that the practice has always been great aside from the new COVID-19 measures. I never had to wait more than a few minutes after an appointment time and they always make it a point to be respectful of your time. I usually have Amber and she does an excellent t job as well. Overall I am very pleased with Dr. Sarver and his team. They really make it point to make perfecting your smile their priority and no matter how long it takes Dr. Sarver really listens to you and makes adjustments to ensure you leave with a great smiles and healthy bite pattern.

"I was very pleased from the time I arrived and was greeted by a young lady who already knew my name. The office is very comfortable and the staff couldn't be more friendly.

Dr. Sarver is not only well trained, he is highly skilled and instills the confidence of having accomplished a great deal over the years and helped many people like me.
