"Your Search For a Dentist Is Over"- Mike K
"Your search for a dentist is over - welcome to the neighborhood. Perhaps there is a better dental care facility within a 200 mile radius of Fayetteville but then again probably not. I for one stopped looking after my first appointment with Dr. Kifer in 2006 (or was it 2007?). Dr Kifer's understated demonstration of skill and knowledge was greatly enhanced by the quality of his entire staff and earned them another patient. Can't think of a single drawback to being a patient of NWA FAMILY Dental. These folks are highly skilled as well as being the sorts of folk who make great friends and neighbors." February 6th, 2019

The checkout process was quick and simple. I'm very please with my experience and happy to be a new patient! Sep 6, 2017
I appreciate the care and consideration — Sondra J.
My second visit to this clinic. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dr. Johnson performed a thorough exam, explained my dental problem clearly using high quality visual images of my tooth to support her findings. She discussed all treatment options and I was able to get detailed service fee information and schedule my procedure the same day. I appreciate the care and consideration shown to me by Dr. Johnson, her assistant, and the office staff. I would certainly recommend this dental clinic. Aug 15, 2017

I am very impressed by Dr. Kifer and the team at NWA Family Dental. Their approach to dental care and oral hygiene is that it is part of overall healthcare.

Yesterday I was treated by Dr. Bowen as Dr. Kifer was out of town. It was the first time I've seen her, and I was so pleased and was just as exceptionally well taken care of by her as I always am by Dr. Kifer.
