I was very impressed that the dentist called my at 9 o'clock at night to make sure that I was OK. You have a customer for life.

In the past, there have been things that were not told to me, that would have given me more understanding regarding how to care for my teeth at home. This time, however, the hygienist explained in detail and I feel like I am better equipped to care for my teeth. I appreciated her taking the time to care about my specific needs, and helping me by sending samples that would benefit me in treating my current issues.

"To Whom it may concern: I have been a patient of Dr. Vernon and Gentle Touch Family Dentistry for six years. I had been thinking about having my wisdom teeth removed for the last four years. I was really afraid it would be long and very painful. I had been having trouble flossing, brushing, and keeping my mouth clean all the way back there. Finally, I decided to have all four wisdom teeth removed.

I will tell you, it wasn't bad at all. Dr. Vernon is so caring, gentle, and puts you at ease, when he gives you the numbing shots. I have had a lot os shots before, and this was the least amount of pain I have ever felt. When Dr. Vernon started to remove my teeth, I felt some tugging. One by one, they were out.

The worst part was being numb. That lasted till the afternoon. I felt a little discomfort, but never really any pain.

If you are considering having your wisdom teeth removed, I highly recommend Dr. Vernon and Gentle Touch Family Dentistry. He and his staff are amazing. They live up to evry letter of the name of their business. Dr. Vernon called me personally to see how I was doing. I really should have had it done sooner. Thank you for your time. Sincerely yours,"

"I hate going to the dentist and I have to say that was the most painless trip i have ever made to the dentist. I really liked everyone there and I was very impressed that I was given the Dentist's phone number at home and that I got a phone call the next day to check up on me. I know where I am going from now on. Thank you very much."

- Roxy



"Over the years I have had different procedures by a dentist like most people. Now being 70 years old, I had two bottom back teeth that had to be removed. I had options as to what to do next. I chose to have two implants which I am so glad I did. I have no complaints about that decision."

- Helen Christiansen



"To Whom It May Concern:

I live in Stansbury Park, Utah. This area has many dentists, but I have never met one as knowledgeable and thorough as this one. I have been willi ng to travel many additional miles to see this dentist because he is honest, skill full; and most important--inspires trust and confidence.

I know that I am getting the best and most suitable treatment. He is the first dentist; and by the way, I am 73 years old, who gave me detailed advice on how to care for my teeth and gums! I have lived all over the USA, and never met anyone to equal him for quality.

Dr. Vernon also has an exceptional staff.

- Jeanne N. Burton



"Dr. Vernon is the only dentist I've been to that truly has the gentle touch. When he gives his numbing shots, there is very little if any pain involved. He's honest and he takes his time to make sure his patients are comfortable.

- Brenda Buck



"Dr. Vernon, Jo Ann and Pam, Last week, my husband drug me into Dr. Vernonís office. I say drug as going to the dentist has always been very traumatic to me, somewhat like walking into a den of lions and just hoping they were all very full. I must tell you that all of that angst was in vain. From the moment that I walked into the office and throughout the entire process I was put at ease.

I learned more about my teeth in that one visit than any one dentist has shared with me throughout my entire adulthood. Dr. Vernon spent the time to talk with me, develop a path forward, and gave me the reassurance I needed to know that I was in the best hands. His staff was amazing and the entire atmosphere was very relaxing. Best of all Ė IT DIDNíT HURT!!!!! How many of you can say that about your last dental visit.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Vernon to anyone. I will be taking my granddaughter next and am totally at ease that her experience will be a very positive one. If you are in doubt, donít be Ė make an appointment and go Ė you will not be sorry."

- VR Crystal Anderson

- Becky



"Although I used to dread going to the dentist's office, Dr. Vernon has made my visits pleasant. He is thorough, fast, and very knowledgeable. His staff is top notch and very friendly. And I appreciate his follow-up phone calls to make sure everything is going well. I highly recommend Dr. Vernon for his professional, courteous care."

- Douglas Ahlstrom



"I can't help but say that I am so pleased in Gentle Touch Family Dentistry. My children used to be afraid of the dentist, but now they actually ask frequently if it is their turn or when will it be their turn to go to the dentist. Dr. Vernon makes it fun for the kids, and it is obvious how much he cares about them. The staff and Dr. Vernon make a point to educate them on how to better take care of their teeth. Even my six-year-old flosses (for the first month after a visit to Dr. Vernon) without asking!!!"

- Cari Gavin



"Dr. Vernon has been our family dentist for the past eleven years. He is always friendly, kind, and patient. Our children love him so much they actually look forward to going to see the dentist.His fun-loving, playful nature makes them feel safe. Our thirteen-year-old son thinks, "…he is awesome!" Our ten-year-old son said, "He is always happy and has a smile on his face." Our six-year-old daughter describes him as "funny and nice" and our three year old said, "He keeps my teeth clean." As parents, we appreciate Dr. Vernon and his staff because they work very hard to accommodate our busy lives. We highly recommend Dr. Vernon for his professionalism, compassion and expertise."
