More kind words

I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Everyone called me by my name and greeted me with a friendly smile. They make you feel special.

After 45 years of care by my best friend, any change would be somewhat traumatic. Dr. Lance and all the other staff made me feel totally comfortable. I am very grateful that I chanced to meet Dr. Lance and that he agreed to take me on as a patient.

Your front office lady is very nice and helpful! Tina, chair-side assistant, was very nice and helpful, as well as Dr. Porter. Thanks for having such a wonderful staff. Your staff “shines” compared to other staffs that we have encountered since our old dentist retired in Little Rock.

Every one was very professional and helpful. When I received the history forms to fill out (which I appreciate receiving via mail (snail or e) before the visit), I called the office with a personal glitch. Jane understood and explained how the practice would help me. I was happy from then on. Dr. Lance is a good teacher and I have confidence that this practice will keep me healthy, solve current problems, work to avoid future problems. I’m coming back today!

A visit to the dentist isn’t at the top of my fun-to-do list, but I actually look forward to chatting with Debbie each time I come to get my teeth cleaned, and Dr. Porter is always gentle and patient. I can’t ask for anything more. :o)

Dr. Lance has a good patient manner and I enjoyed getting to meet him.

I had a lady new to me, Sandy. She was excellent. She did a thorough probe of all my gums before beginning my cleaning. She did a great job and explained what she was looking at. I was pleased when she made my appointment that it will be with her again in 6 months. The front desk is always very sweet and professional. Your entire clinic is very patient oriented and this is obvious from the moment you arrive until you leave. Thank you!

I love your staff. They are always so friendly. I refer everyone I know to you. I would never change coming to you all!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Porter for 30 years and I’m so glad Dr. Lance can carry on the practice so my children can see the most AWESOME dentist in Arkansas! 🙂

We’re very sorry that Dr. Jack will no longer be able to practice, but we are very comfortable and confident that Dr. Lance will be able to fulfill our needs.

My husband was making a comment the other day about the “only place he has never had to wait is Dr. Porter’s office.” This is a huge thing to him and he always speaks highly of your clinic. I would not consider going anywhere else.

Met Lance Porter for the first time and he makes you feel as comfortable as his dad. My hygienist is always great to visit with during my appointment.

I was very impressed with Dr. Lance and know he will do a great job with Dr. Jack’s patients. It is so nice to meet friendly people and I would highly recommend the service I recieved there to all my friends. Debbie does a great job cleaning my teeth and so nice. Thanks to all the office staff, very friendly.

Lance fits well in his dad’s position. He has that “you can trust me to care for your dental needs” inherited from his dad. I am sending Dr. Porter a thank you for excellent care.

Entire staff and Drs. Porter are delightful, expert in their crafts and welcome all patients family.

Don’t change a thing! It is truly a feel good experience and the staff are great.

The Porters and their staff are the most professional, personable and caring dental office I have ever been to (and I’ve been to several over the years). I feel very lucky to have them looking after my dental needs. I would recommend them to anyone, I have never waited more than 5 minutes for an appointment (and that was probably because I was early), and the doctors are always willing to take extra time if that what it takes for me to understand what work is needed, why it is needed and what my options are.

New to the area and Drs. Porter were highly recommended by family. Really good experience, everyone was friendly. Debbie, my hygienist, was excellent. Friendly, efficient, gentle and explained areas that I need to watch. Dr. Lance was not rushed to explain what he saw on my x-rays and what condition my teeth were in. Thank you all.

I met Jan for the first time and she was very nice. You have an excellent staff and wonderful service. Thank you for being so awesome!! Amber
Everyone and all services were terrific…..I will miss Dr. Jack, but was so pleased with Dr. Lance….

I don’t think you could do better. you guys are so friendly.I got the amount that I will owe up front. I really like that.

Everyone was very friendly to me, as usual. Dr. Lance explained new options of care available, and also may need for future visits.

I will miss Jack, but you are the best – as always!!

Was a very satisfactory visit overall!

I really liked my new hygienist. She was personable, very upbeat and did an excellent job cleaning my teeth.

You do a great job!

Everything was great. I have never had an issue with any of my visits.

Everyone seems happy to be there, both staff and clientele. Makes for a pleasant overall experience.

EVERYONE was extremely professional, kind, and friendly. I did not feel uncomfortable at all! Dr. Porter has an excellent personality and did an incredible job explaining his concerns. He took adequate time with me and I did not feel rushed at all. I was so pleased with the overall atmosphere! Knowing that I need additional dental work done, it helps greatly to have been treated so well. After the pleasant experience, I am not in the least bit hesitant to return and let Dr. Porter & his staff use their expertise to improve my dental health. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jessica
Anita and Virginia were very pleasant and professional. Dr. Lance was also very professional and thorough, he communicated my current dental condition very clearly, it was a pleasure to meet him.

As always, it was a pleasant experience even though I do not like dental visits!!

I don’t have a thing I would change. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

There is a night and day difference in visiting your office vs my former dentist! I find I’m nowhere near as anxious about what’s going to happen once I get there, and that is reinforced by all your smiling faces and the gentle Christian music playing in the background. Wish I had switched to you guys years ago!!!

My visit was as always pleasant. The staff are all wonderful. Dr. Lance is just like his dad — super. I love the cleanliness of the office. It tells me how clean you are with your instruments are. I have referred many people to the Porter Dental Clinic over the years. I look forward to many years with Dr. Lance. Thanks.

Everyone at the office is very personable. It is obvious they enjoy their jobs.

You guys are the best! Thanks.

I felt as comfortable as anyone in my dental situation could possibly feel. I felt Dr. lance had become familiar with my teeth ahead of time and was on the lookout for problems and ways to prevent them from happening. By the time I left it was almost like “Dr. Jack who?” Just kidding-easy transition is what I am saying. -Ellen

I think you and all your staff are wonderful – the best dentist office I have ever seen or heard of. You (almost) make going to the dentist a pleasant experience! Thank you for all you do. -Barbara

My new hygienist was very nice and efficient. LOVE my girls, Anita and Virginia!! Dr. Lance is awesome!

I had a very good visit with Jan.

Your office is always clean, friendly and your staff fabulous. I’ve used your practice as an example of what all medical offices should reflect – friendliness and professionalism. You guys do a great job and deserve a pat on the back or a big hug!

I have always been pleased with the services. My dental hygienist is superb.

Was very satisfied with my first visit to your office.

Everyone I met was very friendly and welcoming.

You can’t improve on perfection!!


Anita is wonderful and Sandie was very personable and friendly. Thanks!

As usual great service.

Always happy with my dental appointments. Your staff is the most professional group I have ever encountered. Keep up the good work! Judith
Everyone is very professional and makes my visit a positive experience.

I never thought that I would actually say that I don’t mind going to the dentist.You have a great staff. They are very friendly and caring. Keep up the good work!

Karen and Dr. Lance are a blessing. Thank you for your kindness and compassion.

Entire staff is gracious and friendly. You guys feel like family and I look forward to coming in every 6 months. While I still remember and miss Suzanne fondly, Jan is a keeper. Appreciate all of you!

Sandy was very thorough & gentle. And, of course, Dr. Lance is always the “gentleman”. I’m very pleased with Porter Dental Clinic.

You and your staff have always made me feel very comfortable and at home. Thanks for all you do for others.

I always appreciate the great job y’all do. Keep it up!

Everyone was just awesome, made me feel very comfortable and informed. Karen really went out of her way to explain the procedure and still my fears about injection. Usually this does not bother me, but since it was for the front teeth, I was anxious. She was great as was everyone. Dr. Jack certainly had a way with the injections, that over the years I never feared those. But Dr. Lance did so great, I felt no pain at all, which was very surprising to me. I am so thankful for the Porter Clinic and everyone in it.

Have referred numerous friends to you and are very pleased with your service.

EVERYONE is prompt, courteous, and professional. Thank YOU! I also believe I receive great dental care in your clinic.

Everything and everyone was GREAT!

For over thirty years I have been a patient of Dr. Jack and now Dr. Lance. I always look forward to visiting regardless of whatever the work to be done consists of. I always leave with a sense of having my perspective on life brightened a little for having been there. The staff has always reflected what I perceive as christian values and I fell confident that their values and their actions towards your clients are why I truly enjoy my visits there. Thank you.

Your entire staff is great – pleasant, attentive and,above all, knowledgeable and professional. -Steve

Everyone was very friendly and informative.
-Jane Ellen

I think your use of modern technology is AMAZING!! I commend you for taking the extra time and expense to update your practice to be so innovative and cutting edge!

I was very nervous about seeing the dentist but the staff members put my mind at ease and I was totally comfortable there. Dr. Lance is the best. He made me feel welcomed and I am glad I choose this facility.

I loved the smiling, friendly staff. They met every need even when they saw I was cold I received a blanket.

As always, my experience there was great. Everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful and I have total confidence in the dental care my family and I receive.

The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Jan, the dental hygentist, is exceptional!! She was gentle and I didn’t experience one painful moment with the instruments.

Your office is organized, efficient, clean and friendly which is why I drive 100 miles to have dental work.

It was the best and most comfortable dental care I have ever received. Sandy Covey, RDM was excellent and very mindful of my comfort while cleaning my teeth. Thank you Sandy. I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Lance has an excellent chair-side manner and his assistants are very very friendly and paid very close attention to the needs of the patients. Each of them explained in detail the events of each procedure being preformed and the office workers were very thorough in explaining the charges and worked with us to assure our appointments worked well with our personal schedules. Great experience!

Stephanie was very nice and professional, and fits in well with the Porter Dental Group team.

Everything is great in your office.

Always happy to walk in your office! Joyful people always encountered.
