Shoddy work. Had to have 2 crowns fixed. His work didn’t even last a year. He would not stand by his work and ended up costing me thousands more to fix his mistakes.

A friend recommended for me to see Dr. Dixon. I am extremely pleased with the dental care that I received with Dr. Dixon. I really appreciated how he took the time to explain the procedures to me. I was in so much pain and had so many issues. The treatments that I received changed my life and really helped me see that I also need to do my part and take care of my smile. It is so important to do routine exams, and cleaning and to follow up with the Dr.'s suggestions. If you are the type to procrastinate, don't. Do what you need to do now because it will prevent complications. Dr. Dixon is an outstanding dentist and I will continue to see him. I also appreciate that after the procedures, the staff called me to see how I was doing.

Dr. Dixon is an excellent dentist. The quality of care that I received is exceptional. I been going to Dr. Dixon for the past six years. I did some cosmetic work, which turned exactly what I wanted. My smile has been changed to the better, and I am very happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Dixon. The staff is also very friendly, the place is clean, neat and very welcoming to patients.

I changed to Dr Dixon about 3 years ago on a friend's recommendation. He wad immediately "gone" to Scottsdale for a project. There have been rotating dentist in that office for 3 years. You never know if there would be a different doctor when you made an appointment. Today I was to have some fillings with a dentist and when I was in the chair found out that it was Dr Dixon instead of the one I made the appointment with. He hurt me the first time and I was not prepared this time.
