Phylis H.

I absolutely love Dr. Riley and his staff. It's the best move I could have ever made. We have been with them for two years and have had excellent care. They are never overbooked, overcrowded and your appointment time is the time you go back.

Douglas S.

Dr. Riley and his staff are the best! I've never met a dentist who was more concerned with delivering top-shelf patient care in the most conservative manor possible. He will save your mouth! Totally and completely they are the best!!

Heather A.

My whole family loves coming here to Azalea Dental. Great Dentist and genuinely cares about each patient. His staff is absolutely amazing! My kids won't see anyone else after meeting with them.

Kim L.

I love my new dental office! Dr. Riley and his staff are absolutely wonderful. There's a big difference between simply performing dental services, and providing patient care - Azalea Dental gets it.


As a new patient, my first visit prior to my scheduled cleaning was an emergency visit. Dr. Riley and his team could not have been nicer and more attentive. He was very conservative in rendering an opinion of what the problem was. Honestly, he could have told me I needed a crown and I wouldn't have known the difference. Instead, he gave me his opinion and sent me on to a specialist whose opinion matched that of Dr. Riley. Neither doc recommended treatment at the present time. Since that time, I went in for my routine cleaning and again, amazing staff and wonderful care from Doc Riley. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for quality dental care and really nice people.

Maria D.

Dr. Riley and his staff made short order of a problem plaguing me for over a year. They gave me an appointment within days even with a hurricane coming. They did not shame me and were very understanding of my anxiety I am a new patient and new to the area having moved from the west coast but I felt right at home! Thanks a lot to everyone at Azalea Dental.

Kenton H.

This is one of the best dentist offices on the east coast!

The friendly staff, the great work they do, as well as the amazing atmosphere, makes it one of the best! After the year since we started going here, they have constantly improved the already great experience! I would recommend this dentist to everyone who wants to have a friendly, family friendly, and great quality of work, then look no further!

Erika D.

I've been going to Dr. Riley for close to 3 years now, and I always look forward to my appointments here. The staff is friendly, Dr. Riley is great and they all seem to be on top of new advances in dental care.

The exam rooms are semi-private, with large flat screen TVs mounted on the ceiling. The waiting room is comfortable and they stock a mini fridge with bottles of water for their patients, which I love. Dental cleanings always leave me thirsty and wanting to do an extra rinse, so I like being able to grab a bottle of water on my way out.

Valerie D.

I always have a great experience with Azalea Dental. The staff is professional, friendly and very helpful and listen to my questions and concerns.

Agustin C.

Had my first visit today and I have never been in a dentist office such as Dr. Riley's. The staff, the atmosphere, everything takes the edge off of a dentist office. I felt like I was part of their family from the moment I walked into my step out the door. I will definitely be going back to get more work done. I highly recommend them tenfold.

Robin E.

Fantastic staff and Dr. Riley is the BEST!! I always feel welcome and leave with a positive and fantastic feeling. They not only care about your dental health but also your health in general. I was extremely impressed and grateful that they took my blood pressure this past Friday. It was high and now I am on medication. I appreciated their concern and will continue to drive 3 hours to see them!!!

Deb S.

I have never received such a warm, professional greeting from any doctors office as I received today from Azalea Dental. Just talking with the staff makes you want to be there. My gracious it's wonderful to be a patient at Azalea Dental. Dr. Riley and his staff have truly succeeded in making this a Number 1 business. Thank you for your genuine hospitality.

Britt R.

Being in the dental profession as an orthodontic specialist I get to see a lot of dental work from a lot of dentists. I am consistently impressed with the high standards and quality of work that Dr. Riley gives to his patients. If you are looking for an exceptional dentist with high moral integrity, you have found him!

Becky D.

I have had a tremendous amount of dental work done since I was a child and I have never left a dental practice without being in some type of pain or agony after having work done. Dr. Riley and his staff are professional, courteous, and top notch in their fields. He takes advantage of state of the art technology equipment to improve his service and timeliness to his patients.

Caring & Sympathetic

I would like to say how happy I am to have Dr. Thomas Riley at Azalea Dental for my Dentist. I was referred to him when my Dentist of many years retired several years ago. They are all so caring and sympathetic with me and my dental problems which are numerous. I recently had a painful infected tooth and they worked me in to their busy day immediately. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been referred to Dr. Riley and his Staff. - Alta W.

Willing To Travel For This Kind Of Service

I live on James Island and travel to Summerville to Azalea Dental because it's worth it. It's that simple for me. -Harry P.

Who Knew the Dentist Could Be Enjoyable?

When I moved to Summerville in 2013, I was worried that I wouldn't find a great dentist like the one I had back home. Thankfully, Dr. Riley and his friendly staff eased the transition and has made each visit a welcoming and genuine experience. From the email/text reminders to the scheduling flexibility, I've enjoyed every minute and actually look forward to my annual check-ups who knew? -KaMar

Friendly & Experienced

The best dental practice I have ever experienced, and I have experienced several.They are friendly, thorough and experienced, I wouldn't consider going any where else for my dental health . -Jeff

Honest & Warm

Dr. Riley and his staff always go above and beyond to put me at ease and make me feel like I am a part of the family and not just a patient. They are always up front about the cost and what work needs to be done. Dr. Riley even went as far as to help me with my VA claim. When you visit this office, you know you are seeing someone who actually cares about you as a person. - A. Kersey

Just Like Family

I can not say enough good about Dr. Riley and his staff. I have been coming to him now for over a year and I can't imagine going any where else. His staff is always cheerful and pleasant and very knowledgeable when asked or faced with the difficult questions. They never hesitate to get you in as needed. From a dental implant to bonding to cleaning, Dr. Riley goes above and beyond the call of duty. Azalea Dental is just like family to me and I just can't say enough as to how lucky I am to have found such a good Dentist/ person in Dr. Thomas Riley and his staff - Patti V.
