We were recommended to Dr Hicks from our dentist in Oregon – they went to dental school together. We are so glad we found her, she makes going to the dentist fun! She is always on time, extra gentle and conservative in her treatments.
We also can’t forget her team! Being greeted by Larissa puts a smile on your face when you walk in, Jessica her assistant is so sweet and friendly and Angelica the hygienist is just the best!
Don’t go anywhere else in Tucson!
My family and I LOVE this office! From the time I walked in to the time I rescheduled for my next appointment, I knew I had made the right choice. Dr. Hicks and her entire staff made me feel super comfortable and welcome, and her hygienist Angelica did an awesome job with my cleaning!
I have interned at Katie’s office for 2 years now and every patient leaves happy. Katie is honestly so wonderful! She is so outgoing and very diligent in her work. Her personality really shines and she also does a great job clinically while keeping your best interests in mind. Something really great about her is that she is very conservative in practice, so you won’t be getting any treatment you don’t need! She is also amazing with kids as she has 3 of her own. She truly is the best dentist in Tucson!!
I’m the BIGGEST wimp when it come to dental work (traumatic past) but Katie is amazing! I had two fillings replaced today and no pain! Love her and her staff! Thank you!
Dr. Hicks and her entire staff are lovely! From the appointment making process, to the dental hygenist to Dr. Hicks herself, every experience is positive. This a quality and caring office.
The best dental office in Tucson hands down!
Had yet another great experience with Katie and her team. Took the whole family in, thats two four year olds and an eighth month monster. Their beautiful staff made it all seem easy and painless. Kids loved it and wanted go back the next day! Thx again, cant say enough.
