The employees at Shadle Smiles [Downriver] 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.

Dr. Harding is gentle and thorough in his care. He always explains what he is doing and why. Great office staff, too.

Take it from one person who used to be terribly afraid of going to the dentist...Dr. Gaunt is AMAZING, in fact, all the staff at Downriver Smiles are! They were so understanding of my fear and helped me feel completely at ease. I have had a lot of dental work completed by them, and I am no longer embarrassed to smile...and smile BIG! This group of highly trained dental professionals will make you feel like you're family!! I hope Dr. Gaunt will be my dentist for a very long time!

I have been a patient of Dr. Gaunt’s for about 4 years. My teeth have always been difficult to work on, I have had crowns and bridges on every tooth in my mouth. I’ve had at least 1 root canal in every tooth. I’ve had every dental procedure that I know of in my 64 years! In the last 4 years, Dr. Gaunt has done crowns, a single implant (molar), fillings and just last week, because of an autoimmune disorder and breaking teeth, he removed my lower teeth at my request. Dr. Gaunt put bone grafts and implants in the lower jaw. I now wear a lower denture that when all healed will be supported by the implants he installed last week. The surgery took 3 hours. Dr Gaunt did a great job and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. God bless you Dr. Gaunt! You truly have a gift in the art of dentistry.

So blessed by Dr. Gaunt and his caring staff. I had been so afraid of the dentist until I met him and his caring staff. They all go above and beyond with their personal care and kind words to make your visit the best ever. From my heart, to all of you at Dr. Gaunt's office, thank you for all of your help and for making sure that our visits are perfect.

Downriver Smiles is the best dentist I have ever been to. Everyone made sure my visit was comfortable for me. Amanda took really good care of me and she did an amazing job on my teeth. I love how friendly and caring everyone is. They are an awesome group of people and I recommend them to anyone that has a fear of the dentist. They will make sure your experience is great!

Christian R.

I really can't say enough good things about Downriver Smiles. From my very first visit I have felt welcomed and everyone here has been great. Any previous dental fears were relieved from the first moment I sat in the chair. That is huge for me. Dr. Gaunt and the highly skilled staff at Downriver Smiles have helped me gain back my smile! They have been great about talking me through the process and helping me make the best decisions along the way. Miracle workers do exist my friends. If you'd like to see for yourself, I encourage you to give them a try. Their kindness and professional experience have exceeded every expectation I had and I really do have a smile when I walk out the door. It took awhile but I finally found my place at Downriver Smiles and I couldn't be happier about it. Everyone here from the front desk to the last chair are amazing people and together they all make a great team. Each one has helped me get my smile back and I can't thank them enough for it. Your efforts are appreciated every time I smile.

I was not looking forward to the need for lower dentures and chose to go the route of implants. Dr. Gaunt recommended 2 implants as I couldn't afford to break the bank. I now have a denture that is in place with 2 implants and I can't say enough about how happy I am. Thank you Dr. Gaunt for improving the quality of my life. Being able to eat what I want is more than a pleasure but euphoric. I have experimented with nuts, corn on the cob, even beef jerky and they are fabulous. Thank you again and I highly recommend Dr.Gaunt and his pleasant staff.

Fred D.

With my summer teeth (some are over here, while some are over there), and all the dentists that I've used in my near half century, this is by far the most respectful, responsive, and fun (I know, right?!) dentist office that I have ever been to. It's the little things, like slowly injecting the numbing stuff in the needle so the shot itself doesn't hurt to helping me remember appointments when I ask them to. Downriver Smiles is easily the most accommodating office I have ever been to. It's like visiting with in-laws that you like, rather than a business venture. Thanks for making me fabulous, year after year.

Dr. Harding is amazing, friendly and welcoming. I really can't sing all the staff's praises enough. I used to be afraid to go to the dentist, not any more.- Connie B.

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!
