This was the first time visiting Blue Ridge Family Dentistry since I just moved to the area and personally dentists are my favorite people .I was so amazed how professional and sweet the front desk people were. I got to see Dr. Miranda she was so nice and made me feel so comfortable . She took the time to explain everything that needed to be done and wasn’t in a rush like I experienced with some other dentists. She is amazing and I would definitely recommend people to this practice!👍🏻

Great service! I had a tooth that had had an issue since September and 2 other dentists kept pushing my appointment further and further away. I called them and they got me in within one week and fixed my tooth the same day! Thank you all very much for great service and care! Even to an unknown new patient.

Blue Ridge Family Dentistry have managed to hit the sweet spot of efficient but also caring. I always feel that they are taking the time to pay attention to me and any issues or needs I have, and yet I am always in with minimum waiting. Our whole family relies on Blue Ridge, including for a son's orthodontia. Highly recommended!
