What do our past patients have to say about us?

Don’t listen to us. Instead, read what our past patients have said about our practice:

I got to give a huge shout out to the dentist and staff at this place everyone is very friendly and helpful and I have a huge fear of going to the dentist from past experience but I could not have asked for any better service I got my first cleaning done today by Kelly and I didn’t even feel when I was given the numbing agent through shots I will always recommend this place and even though I’m moving out of state will still come back because the service is honestly that good.

Live Oak has been my dentist since he bought the practice from Dr. Baughman 20+ years ago. He is so gentle, caring, and kind. I have never felt a thing whenever I've been in his chair. I have worked alongside him, and the empathy he has for his patients is beyond words. Plus, his dental work speaks for itself. Any treatment he does looks beautiful and natural. He loves to make every patient feel welcome, comfortable, and happy!

Live Oak is perfect. They are always very kind and gentle and thorough. I will never go to another dentist as long as I have the option. The staff is friendly and sweet. You will not find a better team.

    Preserving a Friend's Legacy

    Live Oak, who has been practicing dentistry in the Porterville area for more than 30 years, is honoring his long-time friend and colleague, the late Dr. Steven Lewis, in the most unique of ways — making it possible for the Lewis dental legacy to continue in Porterville.
