The dentists and team at River Dental in Medicine Hat, Alberta strive to make each and every one of your visits positive and informative.

At the heart of our practice is our relationship with our patients.

We care for each and every one of our patients as if they were our only patients. That's how we approach every day! We are not just treating cases, we are treating people.

River Dental is located on 1st Street SE. Our practice is easily accessible with an ample parking lot and free parking for your convenience. We also offer early morning hours to accommodate your needs. 

Your First Visit

On your first visit to our office, our team will review your dental and medical history, and perform a complete dental examination. This initial examination usually involves taking some necessary x-rays, photographs, and occasionally some study models, which will help us assess your smile.

Following your initial assessment, we will discuss your current dental health with you, make some recommendations for treatment and maintenance, and work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations. This is also a very convenient time for you to have a thorough dental cleaning. This will be performed by one of our dental hygienists.

Your first visit will be approximately 40 minutes long. We recommend completing our New Patient Form in advance,* prior to arriving for your first appointment.
