Conveniently Located in The Offices at The Hill Country Galleria

Rigby Advanced Dental is located in the heart of The Hill Country Galleria. With wildflowers, native trees, and rocky streams, The Hill Country Galleria offers both natural beauty and convenience. Step outside of our office and you will find a wide variety of restaurants and shopping for your enjoyment and convenience.

A Clean & Safe Practice

We go above and beyond the American Dental Association (ADA) and OSHA recommended standards for a clean and safe dental practice. Before your visit, we disinfect all of our equipment in a designated area with state-of-the-art dental sterilization technology. We also sanitize each room between patients—all because your safety and comfort are our top priority. We worry about the cleanliness of our office so you’ll never have to.

For Your Comfort

Because every aspect of your dental experience is important to us, we have a number of amenities to make our office feel more like home. We have flatscreen TVs, blankets, and aromatherapy in all of our treatment rooms to keep you comfortable and entertained throughout your visit. We also offer WiFi, video games, and a treasure chest of prizes for our younger patients! You might even forget you’re at the dentist.

Information & Accommodations

We empower you to make smart, educated choices for your oral health and smile enhancements through patient education and individual consultations. We even have an intraoral camera so you can see what we see in your mouth. We also make sure that we are well informed about your medical history, current medications, and any other factor that might affect your dental health and treatment.

The Benefits of An On-Site Laboratory

One of the things that makes our practice different from others is the fact that Dr. Rigby does much of his dental lab work in-house! This is in stark contrast to other practitioners who outsource the large majority of their dental lab services. This enables Dr. Rigby to control the quality of the lab work provided to our patients. Also, being able to communicate throughout the entire process of fabrication and fitting is critical when striving for the best clinical results possible. Our on-site laboratory gives us an edge to achieve the results you will come to expect at Rigby Advanced Dental. With his extensive training Dr. Rigby knows how to fabricate just about anything and if he doesn’t, he knows where to find the answers!
