our patients say

I’m not saying I’m the biggest dentist fan, but if you gotta go to the dentist, you gotta go see Dr. Higgs!

Larry Fitzgerald

He’s the best at what he does and he stands by his work. One thing that I really respect and admire about Dr. Higgs is that when he tells you something, you can take it to the bank, it is as good as gold. He was my Doctor and he turned into a good friend

Larry Fitzgerald

If you’re looking for the greatest care in the valley there’s no better than Dr. Higgs, you need to look him up, he’ll make sure you get the best smile available

Larry Fitzgerald

It’s been a great environment, he’s got unbelievable staff here and they make you feel welcome, they’re accommodating, they’re punctual, and everything you’d expect

Larry Fitzgerald

I would recommend coming here to see Dr. Higgs just because he’s gonna make this feel like a very smooth and comfortable process. The entire time he’s comforting you in a way and talking to you and making everything feel as trusting as possible

MacKenzie Puricelly

Is so welcoming every time you walk in, and the best part about it is just knowing the people here

Rick & Kelly

I highly recommend anybody to come in here, mainly for the convenience, particularly if you live in the south Chandler area
