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

Friendly and honest

If anyone was to ask me who I recommend as a dentist, this is the place to go! I have not had a single problem with this office for the past few years that I have been going here. The staff is very friendly and their work is the most honest I have seen. You can really tell that the staff has the patient's best interests at heart and are there to help you. I would never think of switching to another office.

Great experience

I went to Chidley Dentistry for a second opinion on some work another dentist had recommended I needed done. I saw Dr. JR and he was very patient and explained everything that I needed done. After going over what I needed done with Dr. JR he told me that I do not need more than half of what the other dentist recommend. Dr. JR saved me over $1,000 dollars worth of unneeded work. He seems to really care about his patients and made the whole process a great experience I. I will continue going to Dr. JR and recommend him…read more

This should be your dentist!

This dentist is the real deal. I don't know how else to say it... give them a try--they will be your dentist for life! I have had the pleasure of being a patient with Dr. Craig Chidley when he opened his Riverside practice in the early 2000's. Years later, when Dr. JR Chidley joined the practice, I switched over to him. However, they are more like a team than anything else. Not only are they fabulous dentists, but they are wonderful people as well. I feel so comfortable and welcome every time I visit the office. They are extremely honest... they…read more
