I'm 53 years old so obviously, I've been to many different Dentists. One of them, in fact, extracted a tooth and left me with the lifetime condition called "Trigeminal Neuralgia." Needless to say, I've been literally terrified of anyone touching my teeth since. If you know anything about TN, you understand why. I've been to "Smile Keepers" twice in the last 2 days in order to repair 2 broken teeth that have been killing me for over a year....I was just too afraid to go. Anyway, yesterday I met Dr. Patel. She was kind, gentle, and clearly very knowledgeable! We set an appointment to begin repairing those 2 teeth, but the soonest they could get me in was September. Yeah, it was a long wait but I just knew she was the only one I wanted touching my teeth. That very night they called me with a cancelation, and I was able to get my repairs done the day after my exam! I was pretty scared, and even with my anxiety meds, my blood pressure was up. Oh lord! Dr Patel opted to do the tooth on the right side of my mouth, which is the side I have TN. Because she's very knowledgeable about TN, she said she wasn't going to numb me in order to prevent stimulating some pretty temperamental nerves (thank you, Jesus)!!! She had my tooth "drilled and filled" in less than 10 minutes. It went so fast,she repaired the tooth on the other side too. I cannot sing her praises enough!! She is genuinely one of a kind!! I will NEVER go to a different dentist. Ever. Her assistant Bailey was so nice and compassionate...gotta give her props too! And finally, the lady at the front desk...I think her name is Lisa. With all of the extra measures being taken because of COVID,she does not miss a beat! Absolutely as efficient as they come. This Clinic takes sterilization of everything in their clinic very seriously. If you fear COVID as I do, this is the place for you too. You may have to wait for awhile to get an appointment, but good things truly are worth waiting for. 5 STARS!!

Dr Kinghorn is very gentle and both he and the dental assistants are conscientious, professional, competent and caring. Edit: I think spell check changed it to Longhorn, but I'm fairly sure it's Dr. Kinghorn.

I had a great experience here. They take covid safety very seriously. As soon as i came in i was greeted by a lovely woman with a calming and happy tone that made me feel safe. I worked with 2 dentists and an assistant who were extremely patient with me and my stubborn teeth. They gave me small breaks when i was getting overwhelmed and made the whole procedure feel safe and comforting.

Dr. Caroline Zeller and her team at Salem Smile Keepers did an incredible job on my partner who needed emergency surgery due to an impacted wisdom tooth that was infected and causing inflammation that was beginning to block his airways. They stayed late to take on the job and very well might have saved his life. This was a true dental emergency and the team here are true professionals who navigate situations with care, compassion, and urgency. We can’t thank you enough!

I've been coming to SmileKeepers over a year had and still have five star experience with them all doctors assistant's are very friendly, politely, patience and detailed with treatment/process procedure etc. Office staff are very friendly, consistent and so patience with clients and if they booked with other clients schedule they will do the best to fit you in to schedule, even if you walked-in with emergency they also super helpful to fit you in as soon as possible, it depends if client canceled their appointment, or didn't came over 15 mins or they finished earlier with current client and right away fit you in.

I had an emergency that involved extractions I was in a great deal of pain. they saw me promptly and though they were incredibly busy they kept me informed during the entire process made it very easy. I don't write reviews often if ever but this level of service deserves a paragraph to say the least. I will be a patient here as long as I have teeth.
