The cold, uninviting and impersonal dental office is a thing of the past. our dentists and the team at Downriver Smiles believe in making all our patients feel at home when they visit us for dental care. We believe a significant factor in making our practice the best dental office in Spokane is exceeding your needs and desires for safety and comfort. To that end, we advise you to prepare yourself for a dental experience that is quite different than any you have experienced before.

The first thing you will notice when exploring our website is that we believe in making oral health care convenient for you. Spokane families are busy, and the traditional bankers’ hours for dental offices do not fit into their modern schedules. Downriver Smiles has extended hours every week and Saturday appointments to make fitting dental care into your schedule much easier.

Plus, we offer same day appointments for dental emergencies or when you find yourself with extra time to fit in a routine exam and cleaning or teeth whitening appointment. At Downriver Smiles, we believe in serving our dental family on your terms, when you need us. Call us first with a dental emergency or other opportunity – we may be able to see you today.

Experience A New Level of Dentistry

When you arrive at Downriver Smiles for your dental appointment, prepare to be pampered. Our advanced technology and techniques allow us to speed up your oral care treatments and reduce any amount of pain you could possibly experience, but that is not all. Check in for your appointment on an iPad conveniently located for your use. Relax and enjoy a beverage at our complimentary beverage bar. Your kids will also enjoy our children’s area.

As a team member escorts you back to our treatment area, you will be given a blanket, pillow and headphones to keep you comfortable in the dental chair. Watch TV or listen to music while we work. You can relax knowing that we do everything possible to minimize discomfort while you receive your necessary dental treatments.

Unlike many other dental offices, we also offer virtual consultations with our dental team. Do you have a question or issue but are not sure how to handle it? Call Downriver Smiles, and ask for a virtual consultation with a dental professional. We can offer advice, suggestions or instructions for care at home or before you come to see us for treatment.

Prepare to be pampered and pleased when you contact Downriver Smiles to schedule your first appointment with us in Spokane!

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!

  • Downriver Smiles is amazing! They provide the kind of experience that we all hope for when going to the dentist. Everyone there is caring and takes all the time needed to make sure you are comfortable and that your questions are answered. Dr. Harding is wonderful! I would never want to go anywhere else.
