They always do a great job! Dr. Mangum is extraordinary at what he does. He even didn’t mind stopping halfway through my root canal so I could change my POD cast to something else cause it quit playing. These guys are absolutely amazing granted I leave in pain after a root canal and they’ve always given me something for it afterwards to help with the pain. 10/10 would recommend Doctor Mangum to anyone.

Excellent first visit for someone who has anxiety. Ms Courtney was very patient and thorough with explaining my options, ensuring I was comfortable with them and the initial exam. I’ve avoided the dentist for years now but am agreeable with multiple visits here to fix my issues which is something I never would have thought possible before.March 21, 2021

Love Dr. Richter and her staff! Everyone is very friendly and the appointments are always fast and efficient! Hardly any wait time before I get back.

This place is AMAZING! They have been so helpful this afternoon with my 10 year old daughter that had a broke tooth and even fit her in for a cleaning same day!!! Definitely recommend this place to all! The staff was just wonderful to work with. They played and joked with her and kept her mind at ease!

This is by far the best dentist experience I have ever had. They have some cleaning technology that I’ve never experienced before but was happy to have!! They genuinely care about each and every patient. The building is new and nice and clean and comfortable. They explain everything that they are going to do before they do it. Every single person had a smile on their face and was positive and upbeat. And my insurance company ended up paying more so I called in today and they had already applied it as a credit to my account for my next deep cleaning. A+++++

Made an appointment with Dr. David Carlton on my daughter in law’s recommendation and I am so happy that I did. I was hoping to have a broken tooth saved. I was not expecting a state of the art dental experience that Dr Carlton, Courtney and their entire staff provided. From the first front desk greeting to my last goodbye hug, I never felt so welcomed and comforted by any office I have ever been in. Dr Carlton is awesome! Not only did he save my tooth but was able to close large gap between front teeth and gave me a brand new smile. I am a customer for life!

Been going to LDFD for a few years! The team is great! Very courteous and professional! I’m not particular about my hygienist but Emily was great at my most recent visit! All of the doctors are amazing! They are thorough, respectful, caring and treat you like a person! ALL the staff always knows your name! A+ and I will continue to go and refer them to anyone I know!

Love this place! I never wait more than a few minutes to be called back. I switched to this practice to use Dr. Richter for my braces. 8 months later, I have no complaints at all and I love the progress I am seeing in my smile. I highly recommend Dr. Richter and her staff!

Kara W.

Once again my expectations or were exceeded by Dr. Aaron Mangum. From the very very helpful and polite service from the young ladies working there to everything they do. They truly do make the greatest effort to make your experience personal and polite. By far the best dentist business I’ve even been to hands down.

Chuck S.

Lake District dentistry is the best. Always professional and are a pleasure to deal with. The staff are top-notch. The best thing about it is that you have the same hygienist every visit, so they can truly monitor the progress of your teeth! 5/5

Samuel G.

The dentists each have their own specialties, and I would recommend each one as I have experienced them all. They have a dynamic duo in Dr. Carlton and Dr. Richter, which is who my family regularly sees. The hygienists, dental assistants, and office staff are all excellent at what they do. I love that their equipment is state-of-the-art, and the office itself has a wonderful milieu.

Tiffany B.

Dr. Richter and her staff are top-notch, and I adore Macy and Kelcie! They all go above and beyond to make sure you’re receiving the best services available. Give them a try. You won’t be disappointed!

Tomorrow I am taking my mom with me to the LVI Dentist appt. These people are absolutely the best and that's why I drive to Alexandria once a month. We are going to see about getting her dentures where they will stay in her mouth to eat and to do anything really. Most importantly my dentist/ortho wants to meet her from knowing what we have been going through and that right there fills my heart. Kyler went with me last time and before I got out from the back she was in the waiting room introducing herself to him. He was shocked in more ways than one. He said the first thing I wanted to say was WOW you are beautiful but he didn't. Lol!! Dr. Courtney Richter and Dr. Carlton are amazing!! I can't wait to see if they can help my mom as much as they helped me with my TMJ pain and getting me to where I am today.

Brandi H.

I had a fantastic experience. Kelsey K. was very very friendly. She was also very informative and thorough with my cleaning. I will definitely be changing my dentist office to Lake District Family Dentistry. Also, all of the ladies in the front office were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this dentist office to others.

Another visit means another chance to brag on this office. Being an RN I know how important it is for patients to have autonomy when it comes to decisions about their care. At Lake District Family Denistry they explain all your options and provide recommendations so YOU can make the best informed decision about what happens next. Best staff anywhere!

Steven R.

They take exceptional care of their patients and are truly amazing at what they do. I’ve been fighting TMJ for years. Finally after hours and hours of research and coming to know of LVI dentistry I’m more than happy with my decision. I drive several hours to and several hours home to be seen each month for my treatment. They truly care about you and your family from the bottom of their hearts. From Dr. Carlton, Dr. Richter and staff down to sweet little Megan I could not ask for better service. After I’m done with my complete treatment plan I will continue to be a General dentistry patient with them and in the process of transferring my entire family to them as patients.

Brandi H.

Always get in on time. Staff are friendly and make every effort to work in my appointments with my crazy schedule. Highly recommend this dental group!
