I have had a great deal of dental work over the years by various dentists in several states. In recent months, I have seen Dr. Sykes for implants, caps and general dentistry. He is absolutely the best and I would absolutely recommend him. The staff is very courteous and the equipment top-notch . If you want the best, see Dr. Sykes!

Michael George Galea – Jun 15, 2021
Great experience at the Reno Dentist with Dr. Sykes. I had a cleaning done and the gal was very detailed and gentle with the cleaning since I had just recently had gum grafting done. Next I had to replace a crown and that was painless. After had to get upper and lower retainers made and all came out to be even more affordable than I thought. So that made my day!!!

I had tried several dentists to find help cleaning my 6 on 1 dental implants that I had done in Mexico but no one could help until I saw Dr. Sykes and Chris. Very professional and personable. They were able to set me up with appointments to meet all my dental needs.

Was in for my 6 month cleaning. Everyone is professional and friendly. They made sure that any questions I had were answered. They asked how I was doing and how my my teeth were doing as well. Great atmosphere, with well knowledgeable staff. Have told my friends about their great customer service.

Dr. Sykes and staff are extremely personable without losing any professionalism. I have extremely anxiety about my teeth; they're horrible, and I've had horrible dentists before. Since I've found Dr. Sykes I have gotten a lot of work done! If you have anxiety about your teeth this is the place for you.

Ron wojos – Dec 04, 2020
I have extreme dental anxiety caused by previous dentists, starting in childhood with a dentist who drilled on me when I wasn't fully numb. I've not had a good experience since, until seeing The Reno Dentist. I've had 2 extractions done by them now and both times went extremely well. They helped calm me every time my anxiety flared, I never felt the numbing needle, and I never felt the tooth being removed. My 2nd visit also included getting a cavity filled, and it was the easiest and most painless filling I've ever had. I have avoided dentists for two decades but as I've gotten older, my teeth quality has started to degrade. Finding The Reno Dentist has shown me I don't need to fear a dental visit, I just have to find the right dentist. There are a lot of bad dentists out there; The Reno Dentist is not one of them, and I highly suggest them for anyone having current issues with dentists or with dental anxiety.

Dud Larsen in Reno, NV – Nov 08, 2018
Dr Sykes and the entire Reno Dentist staff are beyond caring and kind. They really did make me feel comfortable and were more than willing to spend as much time as needed to ensure all my questions and concerns were answered. I truly felt as though Dr Sykes cared about my concerns and thoughts and made sure I was well informed and educated on my dental health and any procedures. The Reno Dentist team is definitely the ‘Champs of Dental’ and they will make you feel like the MVP every single time
