Flagstaff, AZ |
Was disappointed that a student from NAU observed without anyone asking me a new patient if that was ok with me. I was already nervous about a new dentist.

Dr. Bacon was very kind and caring, and he took my problem seriously! He made my experience as painless as possible considering that my tooth was in massive amounts of pain. I would recommend him to any family or friends; I really feel like I was treated like family. Thank you Dr. Bacon!

Amazing care provided by the dentists and hygienist Stevie. As a long time resident of Flagstaff, I transferred to Dr. Bacon as a new patient and am so grateful that I did. Thank you so much for the care and excellence that you all provide to your patients- it shows!

I have just recently gotten out of working in the dental industry and the work I wanted done was not done and it is something I am very self contentious about, I got into Dr. Bacon's office right away and I am so excited to get the process started and have my teeth beautiful before the wedding!!
in Cornville, AZ |
Patient of Dr. Lerud: very impressed and appreciative of the thorough and professional procedures as well as super friendly staff. As a 7 decade long dental patient in a number of cities, I'm happy to say the cleaning and consultation today was THE most thorough I've ever experienced. Thank you Dr. Lerud and Keen.

Dr. Bacon has an incredible skill set and knowledge along with a calm, laid back style and friendly manner. I have perfect confidence in his diagnostics and work. It is obvious that there are high expectations for everyone who works in this practice. I have already recommended Dr. Bacon to several friends and family. I also enthusiastically commend his staff - from the very competent and friendly ladies behind the front desk and the dental hygienists who do the cleaning. Stevie is amazing!

I will definitely recommend my family and friends to Dr. Bacon - he's very capable and has an excellent practice.

My family and I have been going to Dr. Bacon for about 25 years, this includes grandchildren now! He is always professional, punctual, kind, and honest. His staff has also always been respectful and courteous. I enjoy his respect for my time.

This was my first visit with Dr. Bacon and his staff. Let me say that it was the most pleasant environment I have ever seen in a dentist's office. Hadley and the rest of the staff were friendly and courteous. Dr. Bacon solved my dental problem very quickly and spent time to answer in full all my questions and concerns. I was impressed that I received a statement of the cost of services for my next appointment. That's good information to have ! Highly recommend this dentist and office.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Dr. Bacon makes dental procedures as painless as possible; he even knows how to hide the needle when giving me a shot, thus keeping me in the chair. I'm grateful to Bridget for keeping my teeth and gums healthy and happy.. I've been a patient for over twenty years.
Flagstaff, AZ |
I have been actively seeking out a dentist for quite the amount of time, and upon scheduling an appointment and going to the office I was greeted with instant professionalism. There is a very welcoming and outgoing vibe that surrounds this office and I would recommend it to anyone. They were very concise when thoroughly explaining the answers to any and all questions that I had.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
This office has been amazing!! My husband and I have seen both Dr. Bacon and Dr. Lerud and had positive experiences each time. Wish we would have started here several years ago! Jessica in the front office is very knowledgeable when it comes to working with insurance and has always been helpful with referrals. Thank you for all you do. Thanks to Bridgett for cleaning my teeth today! You always make me feel comfortable and it was nice to visit with you too.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Dr. Bacon is an excellent dentist. He takes his time to talk to you and answer any questions. I would 100% recommend him to be your dentist!
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Bridgette is gentle and sweet to talk to, but also she shares professional information to encourage me in maintaining dental health. Dr Bacon is very thorough and fun! The girls at the desk make me feel as if they have known me welcome me. The building is an interesting and beautiful FLAGSTAFF treasure.

My husband and I have both been patients of Dr. Bacon's for years and have always had great experiences. I brought my four year old for her check up today and the office is really just as kid friendly. She saw his colleague for her check up--he and the hygienist were both awesome. Highly recommend for all ages.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Everyone in the office from the receptionists, hygienists, to the dentist have always provided exceptional and friendly service. Highly recommended!
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Dr Bacon is very calm, kind to not only his patients but his employees and gives painless shots. His dental hygienist, Bridgette, is excellent. It's a very friendly office!
in Flagstaff, AZ |
I was late and the ladies at the front desk were more than patient with me, knew who I was and checked me in. I waited maybe 2 minutes before I was taken back and the woman cleaning my teeth remembered everything we talked about during my last visit and was extremely thorough. I can't wait to go back, they really care.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
For the last 2 years I've been going to Dr. Bacon and his staff are very friendly and the office has a relaxed atmosphere. He is gentle and gives very clear professional opinion, recommendations for care or treatments when needed. I'd recommend Dr Bacon and staff for your dental needs.

I was referred to Dr. Bacon's office 2 years ago. I am 45 and never had such an amazing, positive experience at the dentist! Who knew? I love Dr. bacon, Leslie, Angel and all the staff there. Thank you all you're super fantastic!
Flagstaff, AZ |
I just switched to Dr. Bacon after 10 years with a different Flagstaff dentist. It's been an utter pleasure interacting with Dr. Bacon and his staff. I'm surprised at how much a relief this is, as I was becoming tired of being a patient patient of my previous dentist. Dr. Bacon fixed three teeth today, and it was a fine experience, with no pain. I like how convenient his location is, and being in a modern and clean facility.
in Pinon, AZ |
Everyone is super considerate. My first visit went really well, but because of scheduling, I couldn't see the same person on my next visit. I was worried, because she did such a great job, but the next one was just as great (Stevie)! You don't have to be picky or hope for the same person to see you each time, they're all wonderful.

I have been with Dr. Bacon for a long time and he does excellent work. His entire staff of hygienists are all excellent as well:)

For the past 13years my daughter and myself have had trusted and compassionate care at Dr.Bacon's office. It was very important to me to have a dentist that works well with children. My daughter has never said anything bad with her dental experience.

I have been going to Dr. Bacon and his staff for over 12 years. There is a reason I have looked no further. Everyone in the office is friendly, courteous and professional. I enjoy talking and dealing with everyone at Dr. Bacon's office. The care I receive is second to none. Just the best place to go for dental. Truly great place and people. Thank you.

As the biggest dental scaredy cat ever, I can tell you that Dr Bacon and his staff are awesome. I've been going there for many years, and even after all kinds of major dental work it only gets easier. He's the best!
in Mesa, Az |
Dr. Bacon and his staff made time the same day I called to see me when I had an emergency. He determined I needed to see an endodontist and made an apt for me for the next morning. I am not a full time resident of Flagstaff, but was treated very well.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Awesome, didn't feel a thing and the staff is informative and accomodating
