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

Best in dental care

I went for many year neglecting my teeth and skipping regular dental visits due to bad experiences that I had had with dental professionals in my youth.  Thanks to the extreme amount of patience, understanding and care that has been given to me by Craig, JR and Brenda Chidley over the past (4) years, I am back on track.  Craig and JR take the time go through x-rays during check-ups, they answer every single question that I ask, and they always leave the options up to me. Their office is professional and very comfortable, and I always feel like I…read more

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.

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
