Sometimes it is hard to find a dentist that you can feel trustworthy with. As a child having a bad experience with a dentist has me a little anxious each time I have to visit a dentist for a check-up or a filling. I came in about a week ago to have a tooth fixed and saw Dr. Hatch. Of course already being nervous that I have to be at a dentist office to get a tooth fixed of course I was reserved. Dr. Hatch and his team were very thorough and explained every detail to me before it was done. Most of us don't like having a needle shoved in our mouth but I must say this was the best experience I have ever had. Sometimes they say no pain no gain but I definitely had no pain and lots to gain. Dr. Hatch was able to successfully repair a tooth that could have possibly needed pulled. By far the best dentist I have seen in 35 years. Hats off to Dr. Hatch, Dr. Nelson, Dr. Gunnell, and the entire team at Derby dental care for making this one of my best experiences ever.

First time patient. Great experience.

I'm very pleased with my first visit to Derby Dental. Welcoming stuff as soon as you walk in, no waiting time! Tammy was excellent with cleaning and explaining every detail that was done to me or what would be performed on future visits. I'm somehow even excited to go back for my netx visit. :)

I felt welcome and comfortable at Derby Dental Care. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and are exceptional at what they do. I have had some terrible dentists in the past and after just the cleaning here, I know that I am in good hands.

Top Notch Care

We recently moved to Derby and a family member referred us to DDC. I'm so glad they did! The staff at DDC is second to none. They were so great with all 6 of my kids! I love the convenience of being able to go to the same place for cleanings, wisdom teeth removal, orthodontia, and to see a tongue tie specialist.

Haven't had any work done myself, but my daughter has. She had a lip tie and a tongue tie, both of which were taken care of. The environment is kid friendly. Doctors and the rest of the staff are patient, helpful and really do care about their patients. Love it here.

Love Derby Dental! Dr. Hatch does amazing with myself and my children. After any work he always calls in the evening to check in and make sure everything is going ok. My son also recently got MyoBrace and I am very happy with the results that he has had in a short time!
