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

Overall great experience

First time here. My wife had been before. Just a great, easy experience. They were ready when I got there, no waiting around in the waiting room, no trying to sell services you don't need, just an overall great experience. Thanks.

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!

I won’t go to anyone else

I have gone to many dentists in my life, and Dr. Craig and Dr. JR are the best. I won’t go to anyone else. If you need an implant (or anything for that matter), JR is great. I had poor dental care earlier in my life, and they have done wonders to undo that. 5 stars out of 5 stars.
