Thank you for visiting our webpage.

We are a general dentistry clinic that treats patients of all ages. Located in Riverside, CA, we have been serving the community since our practice opened in 2003.

After Dr. Craig Chidley retired from a twenty-year dental career in the United States Air Force, he founded Chidley Dentistry with his wife Brenda. The clinic prides itself on personalized dental care that treats the individual. At Chidley Dentistry, we realize that every patient is unique. A treatment plan for one individual may not be appropriate for another, depending on a multitude of factors (age, health, hygiene, financial, etc.). At Chidley Dentistry, we focus on providing quality dental care that is appropriate for that particular patient’s wants and needs.

Chidley Dentistry has a small staff: two general dentists (Dr. Craig Chidley and son, Dr. JR Chidley), office manager (Brenda Chidley), and two dental assistants. Our family-type atmosphere and small staff allows the doctors and support team to give each patient the individual attention they deserve. Once you come to our clinic, you will see that we know each patient on a personal level. This continuity of care and familiarity makes the dental experience at Chidley Dentistry comfortable, consistent, and positive.

Both doctors received their dental education at Creighton University, and post-dental school training in the United States Air Force dental corps. We pride ourselves on a conservative dental approach, with an emphasis on patient education.

What Makes Our Clinic Unique

We are not high volume, nor do we want to be. This allows us to take the extra time to educate the patient on all dental-related matters: prevention, diagnosis, explanation of procedures, treatment alternatives, insurance-related questions, and so on. In addition, we make a strong emphasis at our clinic to keep a punctual schedule. We value your time, and do our best to see our patients without delay.

We look forward to helping you with any dental questions or needs you may have. Please feel free to navigate our webpage for additional information.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Patient Testimonials

I always leave feeling well cared for!

Both Dr. Chidley's are great! This father-son team always treats us like family. They are very accommodating when trying to book appointments, and have even come in special on weekends when we've had a dental emergency! I always leave feeling well cared for!

Couldn’t be happier

I can't be happier with this dental practice. I have had multiple cleanings here and they have always worked with my work schedule. I also have had a fairly invasive bone graft procedure here that went flawlessly and prepared me for a successful implant procedure. On top of that the bone graft and implant procedure were much more affordable than the other places I looked at. All around I have really enjoyed my experiences at Chidley Dentistry. Dr JR has taken the time to really talk with me about my dental health and has given me useful suggestions. I have…read more

5 stars

I am extremely happy with Dr. J.R Chidley and his staff. He is very professional, has a sense of humor and friendly. I am always nervous when I go to the dentist, but Dr. Chidley made me very comfortable and explained about my dental situation very thoroughly. He is very fair and honest in estimating the cost of dental work needed and he does not take advantage of his patients and does not recommend any extra and unnecessary work. By the way I did not know that he is a professional tennis player! Ask him about tennis while he is…read more
