They've never used foul language, which has bothered me at some of the other places I've been to. They always make an extra effort to be polite and courteous. Their office was nice and quiet. I was worried it would be overly loud but it was fine. Not only did they give me a local anesthetic to make sure I didn't feel any pain during my procedure, they paused every few minutes to make sure I was still comfortable and okay. I felt like they really cared about me. They always make an extra effort to make me feel respected and attended to. They always listen to every question or concern I may have.

I have been a patient of Dr. Clifton's for 37 years. He is thorough and has an excellent chair-side manner. This was particularly important for me as I had a very bad fear of the dentist.

Description of Experience: 
He was giving me a little bridge for a little tooth that was missing on the bottom. 
Member Comments: 
It fits perfectly!  I have two permanent bridges and a partial.  You literally cannot tell that these are dentures.  I had a friend Who saw me with out my teeth, and they were shocked to know those where not my real teeth (the dentures).  He keeps you laughing through the whole thing.  He is really great about pain management.  There is 99.99% no pain what so ever.

Dear Dr. Clifton,                                                                               August 2012

       Thank you so  much for helping me with my bum tooth & "working" with me on making
the payment by waiting a week.  P--- is right- you are the best dentist in the world & a good
follower of Jesus! (very funny too!)

                                                                               Yours truly,

                                                                          
Maria O.

PERSONALIZED, COMPASSIONATE......CARING

I too was 'dentist phobic' prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Cliftons. Initially when I expressed my fear of dentists due to a previous negative experience, Dr. Clifton took my fears into consideration and has always, for these past 35 years, been gentle in providing needed services. I love the fact that when Im in the chair, I am his sole patient. His is not an office with several rooms in operation at a given time, which for me in the past has given me a sense of being juggled...as one among many (not a good feeling). Every service hes performed has been superb in its caliber. Id have to say hes pretty meticulous in the service he provides. Its a characteristic I truly appreciate. All of the above, in addition to no longer approaching a dental appointment with my previous trepidation.Thank you Dr. Clifton. I wish there existed an option to give MORE than 5 stars...You're the best.MACC
