Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective way to straighten your teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Wearing the comfortable, customized aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Correcting teeth alignment is imperative, not just cosmetically, but for overall health. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds: comfortable, efficient straightening with an essentially invisible appearance.

Exceptionally pleased with Dr. Dickens. Very professional, courteous, friendly, competent, efficient, safety-minded, gentle, careful and caring. Technology driven and well equipped. Staff communicate well and work great together. Office atmosphere is very pleasant. Needed a crown for a broken tooth, got in right away. Returned for comprehensive new patient evaluation. By far the most thorough exam I have ever had. Dental assistants and hygienists are also outstanding. Highly recommend.

Dr. Dickens is always professional, very sweet and caring. I tell everyone I know how great the dentist and the entire staff are. They always welcome me like a close friend and treat me exceptionally well.......and whatever I have done, from a filling, to a crown, to a cleaning are done perfectly.

Dr. Dickens is a wonderful, caring, competent Dentist! Every appointment I've had with her has been delightful! She keeps things light, keeps you informed as much as you want and the positive demeanor and joy she exhibits with her patients and staff makes for a more relaxed and enjoyable patient experience, even when she's pulling your tooth, which is my most recent experience and one that I've been dreading for the last couple of years!

Dr. Dickens and her staff are awesome!! Two days before flying home for my Dad's 91st Birthday, I ended up with a dental emergency. I found University Family Dental on line, called them, and within 3 hours I was sitting in a dental chair with Dr. Dickens explaining my treatment plan. I had a permanent bridge segmented, a molar extracted, and a bone graft implanted with sutures, and I was on my way home to pack! Thanks to Dr. Dickens, I got to celebrate my Dad's 91st Birthday with him!!

This is a very professionally operated dentistry. My Karen makes so much difference by providing the best care I've received since going to this office for the last 49 years when Dr Cook was the primary dentist.

Dr. Dickens and the whole team were awesome! They made me feel welcome and explained what was going on throughout the process. It was a normal 6-month check-in but I had X-rays. They explained problem areas and ways to reverse any damage. They're dependable and friendly.
