Dr Rightmer and the wonderful Shari Robertson were amazing once again taking my last two wisdom teeth out. Together they got the job done and might I mention these teeth did NOT want to come out. Also I got some special assistance from Dr Yarbrough! Everybody at this dental office is what you would want out of one. Sincere compassion, talent and genuine people make this possible. From the bottom of my heart thank you for everything again!

Wendy is just total awesome, extremely caring and professional. I’m on the Invisalign program and ran into some issues (e.g., dog chewing one of my trays—I’m not kidding!) and she was ready and available to help, even coming over to the dentist office on a weekend one time to address an issue.If only I could find a similarly reliable car mechanic and a tax accountant!

My wife and I have been patients for ~27+ years. We have implicit trust in Dr. Yarbrough and his caring staff. Our experience has been outstanding throughout. Dr. Yarbrough has a conservative, common sense approach. We have never felt pushed or pressured to have all sorts of unwarranted and costly procedures. In fact, it was this type of experience that led us to Dr. Yarbrough to start and we've remained loyal patients since. His practice treats their patients like they are family. Like a lot of others, I put off my regular visits due to the pandemic. However, I recently felt I needed to change that. My experience was very pleasant and positive. I was left confident that all protocols were followed and were effective. So, if you are a current patient or are looking for dentist, I certainly would endorse Westgate Dental.

I have been a patient with Dr. Yarbrough for 30 years. He is a wonderful dentist and has continued to modernize his office, equipment, and procedures to enhance his business. His staff has remained with him over the years. They are friendly, caring, and professional whether for cleaning teeth, assisting Dr. Y, billing, and scheduling appointments.I called this morning with a denture issue. Got me in at 1:30 and done by 2:30. Perfectly satisfied!

Westgate Dental is a great dental office with a great staff. Dr Yarbrough was my first adult-life dentist. After moving out of Austin, I switched to a local dentist for a few years. After a couple procedures with my new dentist I decided to go back to Westgate Dental, despite the long drive for each visit. I just had my first return visit and am feeling very good about the return. The work and staff are a step above the rest. I would (and have) highly recommend anyone looking for an Austin dentist to visit Dr Yarbrough.My wife also sees Dr Yarbrough. She has an intense dental phobia. Of the three offices she has been to over the last 15 years Westgate Dental is the only one I can get her to make an appt with. They seem to do very well with those who experience that sort of anxiety.

The best as always. It starts at the front desk with the friendliest staff. I think I have the best, most thorough hygienist with Melissa...glad you are back. Wendy handles all the cosmetic items along with fitting me with my 4th night guard...darn dogs. Dr. Yarborough is the consummate gentleman and makes you feel at ease. Liz takes your money..but I won't hold that against her...she's sweeter at that than anyone I've known...and she makes sure your insurance is kicking in when it needs to. Thanks again. You all rock.

Coming to this office is always a pleasant experience, from Christy at the reception desk to Liz at the payment desk. Who says that about going to the dentist? I am sure Dr. Yarbrough's other patients agree. I must add that I have been a patient here since 1999, and every single person that I have encountered here is professional, friendly, and concerned with my comfort and best interest in treating me.

It's hard to get excited about dentist appointments but my family has been going Westgate Family Dental for over 20 years and each time I go there I realize what a special place it is. We are always treated well, the staff remembers our names, the service/procedures are excellent. We moved out of Austin many years ago and tried different dentist but we always end up going back there even if it is a long drive for us.

I've never seen a Doctor and staff so committed to excellence and incredible dental care. If you are looking for dentist that is down to earth and committed to treating the patient and exceeding your expectations, then you have to come see Dr. Yarbrough. His staff has been with him forever, to me, that says everything and the proof is in his sincerity and honesty!
