Fall River Dental Center is family-owned and operated right here in Fall River, MA. Since our company opened its doors in 2012, we’ve treated every patient like they were a part of our family. Other companies may offer similar services, but our services are the best, and come with a personal touch.
We service the military as well as doing some outreach work at schools and senior centers. We care about our community and we work hard to keep children and adults informed on how important it is to maintain good oral hygiene. Good for your smile, but also good for your physical health too!
Here are some testimonials from our patients and the reason why they love us:
