I am a 60-something year old with dental anxiety my whole life, intermixed with periods of dental phobia (where you avoid going to dentists because you just can't deal with it). After spending Friday Sept 12, 2022 in urgent care with tooth pain, I got home about 3:30, reflected on a talk about 10 years ago that I had with my youngest sister about my dental issues. I asked her "How do you know if you need a root canal?" She said, "Trust me, there will be no options, you WILL go to a dentist!". She was right. So, I dug out my "2020-2021 Dental File" and found the Grimes Dentistry "Card" I got in snail mail over a year ago. I knew ways back when I received the card in the mail that they would be my next dentist because the "Card" said they do basically everything (root canals, crowns, gum disease therapy, etc.) and I needed a LOT!. That Card was the sole occupant in my file, except my updated insurance information that began in Sept. 2020. I took a few deep breaths and called, and Cynthia was so darn nice, convinced me to come in Monday (and she was far better than any anti-anxiety medication could ever be!). So, I showed up Monday morning, and met with Hope (who gave me "hope" that this would be a great dentist office), Then I had all kinds of stuff done, root canal and 2 crowns (one to replace a "bad one") and the lovely Lauren (who thankfully escaped from prison) was Dr. G's right-hand assistant. Then on the 20th and 21st I (actually) came back to meet Cinnamon (the spice of life) for my long-overdue cleaning and gum issues. Well, Cinnamon is clearly the best tooth picker west of the Mississippi (and such a delightful person)!!!! Then I (actually) came back for some other not so lovely stuff on Oct 6 (but it was OK!!). Ah, tomorrow I am scheduled to get three crowns. Well, not the crowns, but getting the three teeth "sawed off" so I can get the crowns. Can't say I am looking forward to it, but I WILL show up!!! Dr. Grimes and his assistants and staff are ALL so great. They are not only saving my teeth (the best that anyone can at this point), but they are saving my life!!!! My only regret is that I did not find Grimes Dentistry several decades ago. I have recommended them to about 6 people in last 3 weeks, several of which I learned have dental anxiety themselves!!! (I also spotted Dr. G watering the flowers and plants in the waiting room as I was checking out at 5pm on a Friday. He truly cares about his practice, his staff, and his patients). A+++

Great staff!! Alma, Terri, Lauren and Dr Grimes have been great!! Everyone is so nice, polite and just such a great place of business!!
I had a root canal done with Dr. Grimes and I always heard root canals were very painful! With Dr. Grimes there was no pain during or after my appointment. I was able to drive myself home and go to work the next day. I have not had any issues with that toot since. I would recommend Dr. Grimes to anyone having dental issues.

The staff is amazing!! I love Dr.Grimes, he was my dentist for wisdom teeth removal and cavity fillings. He was so kind, gentle, and understanding. I also love my hygienist, Kristin S. She is absolutely amazing, she is amazing, sweet, and I love having conversations with her. Would definitely recommend coming here!

New to the area and my very first dental visit in Lubbock. What an amazing team and program. Kristen was my dental hygienist--experienced, professional, compassionate, patient and informative--at every step of what ended up being a couple hour session. Dr Grimes was approachable, easy to talk to, clearly an expert and made me feel welcome as a new and somewhat anxious patient. I cant recommend this practice highly enough and feel so lucky to have made Grimes Dental my first choice in Lubbock.

Everyone at Grimes dentistry was extremely friendly and extremely helpful. The dental assistants Katie,Alma and Hope explained everything fully, were very gentle and caring during my dental work. I give all of them five stars My dental hygienist Alex took time to explain things to me, was very personable, very caring and concerned about my overall comfort during the procedures. She is absolutely the best. Dr. Grimes has put together a team that is second to none.I would recommend Grimes Dentistry to anyone who’s looking for any dental work!

I am not one who likes to go to the dentist; however Grimes Dentistry made my visit so comfortable. Everyone was nice and encouraging. My dental hygienist, Dakota, helped ease my nervousness. She is not only very skilled, but she is also extremely gentle. I appreciated her knowledge, and it was obvious she cared about both my oral and overall health. She was great about educating as she provided treatment. Great Office and Staff!
