The atmosphere at Great Falls Dental was pleasant and welcoming. Dr. Akers provided a calm and caring approach during my appointment.  He took his time in listening to my concerns and explained his thoughts regarding a plan of care for me going forward. Mercedes and the front desk staff made scheduling my appointment and becoming a part of the practice super easy.

Rinse, brush, floss and visit your dentist regularly if you want to help forestall heart disease, lung disease, blood vessel blockage and age related cognitive disorders. This is part of the advise I get when I'm researching how a rapidly approaching octogenarian might best hope to prolong his good (relatively speaking) health. Thankfully, I've found an excellent dentist in Jacob Akers. He listens to my concerns and is thorough in his examination. In my recent visit he addressed and expertly fixed my immediate concern about a chipped tooth and a failing filling. Afterward, without any pressure he gave me sound counsel about a couple of dental issues I have been intentionally (not wisely) neglecting. Like my primary care physician commenting on my weight, Dr. Akers acknowledged that these couple of dental issues are not currently a problem, but it may be beneficial to address them now while the fix is simple rather than wait for complications. I'll be back for the "fix." If you are looking for excellence in dental care, then, without reservation I recommend Dr Akers and his extraordinary staff at Great Falls Dental.

Dr Akers was fantastic! He gave me a series of gentle injections necessary for the amount of work I needed. The dentist did crowns on 10 😳 upper teeth. I had worn my front teeth down and looked older than I am. The end result is so good! Everyone compliments me on how great they look!

This past Friday I was in excruciating pain due to an abscess in a root canaled and crowned tooth (ended up being caused by a crack, thanks popcorn). On Friday evening I called the office after hours and was transferred to the Dr. on call. That Dr was Dr. Akers. I was beside myself and he calmed me down, called in some medicine, gave me his personal number so I could text him regarding my pain at any point, offered to come into the office during the weekend just to see me if I needed. I felt like I had someone on my side who cared. I felt confident in the advice he gave me and comforted by the fact that he was only a text away if I needed him. He treats his patients like family. 10/10 recommend!

So pleased with my experience at Great Falls Dental. I highly recommended Dr. Akers! He took his time to explain my dental needs, the benefit of treatment, and then talked about the pros and cons without any pressure. I was also very impressed with the office staff. They were so friendly and Mercedes went above and beyond by communicating with my insurance provider to plan for upcoming procedures. I definitely feel well cared for at Great Falls Dental.

Dr. Akers conducted a very challenging root canal (my first ever) on me, and managed to put my claustrophobic fears to rest. He explained everything, checked on my state of mind throughout the procedure, referred me when the situation warranted, then followed up to finish the process. Relatable, skilled, warm, and funny - he really put me at ease!

Dr. Akers is an amazing dentist! He explained my treatment needs thoroughly and answered my questions. I never felt pressured by his recommendations. I would recommend him to all my family and friends!

“I have a very hard time getting numb and have had many bad experiences with dentists. Dr. Jacob Akers took his time using several different numbing agents and made sure I was comfortable before he did any work on me. I was over the moon that I could have pain free dental work done without sedation. I highly recommend him.”

“Everything about the office is fantastic. Dr. Akers is hands down the best dentist I have ever seen. I was so nervous about my wisdom tooth extraction. He took his time and went at my pace, he eased my anxiety and explained everything step by step. Before I knew it, the procedure was done. There was zero pain during and after the procedure. I will continue to drive the hour to make this my new dental office.”

C. M.Happy Patient

“For the 2-hour procedure, I was made as comfortable as possible, asked multiple times if I was doing okay and if I needed a break. Dr. Akers made me laugh, kept me informed about the entire procedure, and put my mind at ease every step of the way. As a bit of a claustrophobe with dentist anxiety, I can't say I've ever "enjoyed" going to the dentist...but these folks made me feel welcomed and respected from the waiting room all the way out to the reception desk at the end of my appointment. Kudos all around!”

Kelly S.Happy Patient

“Going to the dentist has never been a priority for me as a mom of three and who lives a busy life. My health always comes second. I had a bit of anxiety regarding my teeth and in past dentistry’s I have received judgement for not going regularly and for needing to have a good amount of work done. My experience has left me speechless. From the second I walked in to the second I walked out I was treated like a normal human. I wrote a note for my dentist letting them know I need work but please don’t judge. I want to get on the right path and be proud if my smile. And it was amazing how kindly I was treated. I felt heard, cared for and listened to. I am eager to go back and have my teeth worked on. Thank you so much — especially Dr. Akers!”

Jess C.Happy Patient
