I had a great experience at RYAN S FERNS DDS (Preferred Dental). Dr. Ferns was very kind and professional. The facility was very well organized and clean. Dr. Ferns staff were extremely friendly and positive. The work environment felt like everyone really enjoyed working for Dr. Ferns. I just moved to Missouri from California. For myself, finding the right dentist is very important because you put all your trust in their hands. Thank you.

Lisa Rice

“Always nervous establishing care with a new dentist. Friendly staff, very professional. I needed extensive work, had very little discomfort, best experience I’ve had with a dentist in my adult life. Dr. Ferns even called that evening to check on me to make sure I was doing ok. If you like that personal attention and to feel like a person and not a number, then highly recommend this office!”
