  I highly recommend Dr. Moore's office! My son is 15, just had 8 teeth pulled to make room for braces. My son needed a cleaning. Many of the other practices I called didn't have any appointments available or the appointments they did have where several weeks and months away. Dr. Moore's friendly staff was able to schedule my son within 3 days of our call. The office is VERY clean, everyone was kind, patient and very friendly. Dr. Moore takes the time to make sure he addresses all of your concerns and questions. We have found our new family dentist! If you are searching for a new dentist, I HIGHLY suggest you give Dr. Moore a try, You won't regret it!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Moore and his staff. Everyone is utterly and completely courteous, polite, and professional. Not to mention genuinely kind and concerned about the well-being of everyone who walks in the door. Best dentist's office around, hands down!

I have high anxiety with being in a dentist office and all of the staff made me feel very comfortable. I had no trouble like I have in the past at other offices and they're all super sweet people. Definitely will be returning. I really wish I could have found them a lot early than now. Would recommend every single time.

My family and I have had the pleasure of being patients of Dr. Moore's for several years now and we cannot brag on him and his staff enough! I feel so welcomed when I attend an appointment. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable, and they create an overall pleasant atmosphere. We recommend his office to anyone seeking a comfortable and relaxed dental experience!

If I had found this dentist years ago I would have had no fear of a dentist! Excellent experience, all staff I interacted with were courteous, professional and pleasant to deal with! I called with a toothache, the receptionist got me in the next morning and was able to help me fill out forms online to save time. When I arrived I was taken back almost immediately and Dr Moore had me fixed up in less than an hour! From my first interaction with the office, to the courtesy call I received later that evening checking to see how I was doing, just a class act from start to finish! Highly recommended!

Our daughters came here for the first time from their dentist. They were totally impressed at the level of knowledge that the hygienist had. My 14-year-old said right away they noticed where her front tooth had been hit by a football and her old dentist; whom she'd seen her entire life had never noticed the damage to her tooth. Both girls liked the clean atmosphere and how clean their teeth felt when they were finished. They were happy happy happy! Not often teenagers are complimentary of the Dentist!!!!

They helped get me in to get fixed up despite my ridiculously tight schedule... and the time I spent in the office was incredibly relaxing and pleasant from start to finish, which is not always something you can say when visiting a dentist. They have the most comfortable chairs ever, and the chairs even have a massage function while your getting dental work done! Dr. French Moore III and his assistant Teresa were warm, friendly, and had a gentle but precise touch in the dental work process. And Anna at the front desk is just awesome!

Nancy Lucas

We found Dr. Moore's office after moving to TN from CA and we are soooo glad we did. They are the most professional, friendly, neat and clean office we've ever seen. And...they are Internet smart too! Amanda and Zoe do a great job cleaning our teeth plus they educate us on the best techniques to keep our teeth and gums healthy. Anna is also wonderful at the front desk. Oh my I've forgotten Dr. Moore. He's very calming and pleasant to be around. If you are looking for the best dental office around the Tri Cities give them a call...you'll be glad you did!

Even at 6 and 4 years old, Judah and Levi love coming to the dentist! Levi was proud to take home a picture of his teeth, and even more excited about the floss and new toothbrush. Thanks, Dr. Moore and team for making this a great experience, even for kids.

Matthew Sykes

After having not been to a dentist for way too long, I developed an urgent problem, called Dr. Moore's office after hours and left a message. I was scheduled the very next morning in the office - as a new patient. This is hands down the best dental experience I've ever had, everyone from the front to checkout was so friendly and helpful. He took care of my problem immediately, and was gentle while fixing it. This experience finally gave me the courage to schedule the preventive care and other work that I had been needing for so long. Thanks.

Leigh King

My dental hygienist Miranda was fantastic! So friendly. One thing that really, really impressed me is that they all remembered that I go by my middle name. I cannot stand it when people assume that my first name is my name. They remembered! That's only happened maybe a dozen times in my life, when people remember I have always used my middle name since the day I was born. Cannot say enough about how kind this office is.

Joy Jones

Dr.Moore recently did a smile makeover for me, and I couldn't be more proud of my smile now. He is a perfectionist when it comes to producing a result that both he and the patient are happy with. He is also very personable. I had the privilege of having Karen assist him, and she has always been warm and welcoming and excellent at her job. I'm a patient for life after my positive experiences here.

Amanda Fuller

Dr. Moore did a outstanding job. This was my first time back to a dentist in like 10yrs because of bad experiences before with other dentist. I explained everything to him. I had to have a tooth pulled and he made sure I was completely numb before even tried to pull it out. Dr. Moore you did an amazing job, Thank you very much.

Theresa Kalb

I am so grateful for the same day appointment I was able to get when I called with a dental emergency. Dr. Moore was very competent, and reassuring. He was able to reattach the crown that had broken off, which was a considerable cost savings for me. Staff members were all very pleasant and professional. I will be returning for routine dental care!

Dr.Moore and Dr. Laningham are very professional and courteous. When you walk in the office they already know who you are and greet with a smile. The staff learns things about you by asking questions about your day and remember you when you come back. They interact with patients and explains things if you have questions. Will even call to check on you after a procedure being done. I highly recommend this office and glad we found them.
