What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I've been going to see Dr. Harden and he is simply the best. I had a have a few teeth pulled at one time and I was in and out. And I am the biggest chicken when it comes time to go to the dentist. Dr. Harden is the best!"
    Donna J.
  • "As always we had a wonderful experience at Kirksville Dental. The staff are so friendly and I always feel Dr. Kice always takes time to answer any questions I may have regarding my daughter's dental health. We never wait...they always come get us within a few minutes of our appointment. The dentist is not a place that many people like to go but I can honestly say that Kirksville Dental does not make me feel like that....I usually walk out of there smiling as do my kids."
    Anna C.
  • "I have the best dentist in USA! Any time that I had needed to see Dr. Gooch urgently he has been so helpful. I am very grateful to have a very kind and professional dentist."
    Rosa M.
  • "My husband and I hated to leave our dentist in Iowa City, but had to when we moved to Brashear in June 2016. EVERY EMPLOYEE treated us with respect, charm, the cleanings were painless, we couldn't have asked for more. Kudos to your care!"
    Marcia W.
  • "I just had another successful teeth cleaning and check up with Dr. Rick Gooch and his staff at Kirksville Dental. This doesn't mean I haven't had problems with my teeth for them to treat. In fact, my teeth can be quite problematic because of poor dental care as a child but they keep me going, and they are always upbeat, empathetic and willing to go the extra mile to help. I would recommend them to anyone."
