From start to finish, my experience with Irby Dental was excellent. Contemplating a full-mouth implant procedure (and dealing with "white-coat syndrome") can be a nerve-racking experience, but the Irby team made every step pleasant, explaining each step along the way and doing everything they could to make the process as comfortable as any surgical procedure could be. 10/10 in my book

I chipped a tooth last Thursday and was able to get an appointment on Friday for first thing Monday morning, and Dr. Adam Williams repaired my tooth and did an excellent job! Everybody there was very helpful and friendly, and I certainly will return in the future. I recommend them highly!

As a patient for over 25 years, I would highly recommend Irby Dentistry for their great staff and thorough approach to all services offered.
20:15 02 Jun 22
I really appreciate Dr. Irby, and his staff! Like most people I get anxiety when going to the dentist, they help to calm me down by explaining what’s happening and being very gentle and understanding of me. I would recommend them definitely!

I searched for weeks trying to find a dentist that did single implants. I found Dr.Irby and he is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Walked me through step by step of the procedure, he made sure we did it right the very first go. My words do no justice to his work. I wish I could post pictures. Lost a front left tooth and he did an implant that gave me back my smile. A masterpiece of work. Awesome and welcoming team around him I am a for lifer at Irby Dentistry.

Everyone was super nice from the time I walked in the door! The Dental Hygienist was welcoming as well as the Doctor. I don't think anyone has ever said they enjoyed an emergency wisdom tooth removal, but I did!
21:30 30 Mar 22
Dr. Irby solved a chronic toothache for me, saving me from the root canal that other dentists were prescribing. He was patient, listened to all of my concerns and information about my tooth, and came up with a simple and effective solution to my pain. I will now be seeing only Dr. Irby for my dentistry needs!!!
13:31 17 Mar 22
I really enjoy the staff at Irby Dentistry, they take the time to explain things to make sure I understand my dental needs and always do a great job at taking care of my teeth. I strongly recommend Dr. Irby and the staff at Irby Dentistry.

Always on time . Professional. And carrying

My son broke his front tooth clean in half, and we were worried because it was so late in the evening. Dr Irby was quick to respond to my message and kind enough to see us so late. He had the tooth fixed in no time and we can't even notice it was ever broken. Excellent work Dr Irby!!! He's very polite and very professional. Definitely recommend!

This is hands down the best dental office you will ever experience. The staff is absolutely amazing and all are so sweet and respectful. I had both doctors (Irby and Williams) do extensive dental work on me. I had suffered chipped and broken teeth due to severe dry mouth at night time. I was sent to an oral surgeon to have the teeth removed but I ended up having an abscess tooth that was causing me intense sharp pain that began to control my life and make me miserable. I called the office and they saw me the next morning and Dr.Irby was phenomenal he numbed me and I hardly felt it he extracted 3 teeth the same day they called the next day for a follow up & I mentioned my other side of my face was swollen and something wasn’t right come to find out my k9 was infected on the other side and he extracted two more teeth and I didn’t feel a thing. We decided to do a partial denture and today Dr.Williams pulled the last three teeth and placed my partial ! They look amazing and saved me over $5,000.They are the absolute best. I drive almost 2 hours to their office.

I am TERRIFIED of going to the dentist. I had to go because a filling fell out and I waited too long to go. My tooth was bad and the pain sickening. They made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Dr Williams took the extra time to get me super numb before extracting and made me feel very calm. He was wonderful and so was his assistant. She was awesome!! I will definitely go there for my dental work. I’m not terrified anymore. Thank you so much guys for everything!!!

I have finally found the dental team I have been looking for. Dr Irby and his staff. Aside from being caring, kind , professional and prompt the work is impecable. I can smile again after 7 years of being too afraid and emarrassed to go to a dentist. If you are scared of a dentist go to this practice. They will put you at ease. Thank you Dr Irby for my regained smile. Deb "Aretta" Duncan

Adam Williams is the best Dentist I have ever had in 65 years. Takes the time to understand your issues and acts on them in a caring way. Referred him to my extended family and would to anyone.
22:32 27 Jun 21
Dr. Williams was awesome!!! I have alot of anxiety when going to the dentist. He is very calming and a professional. We came up with a plan for my future dental work. I have found my new dentist..Thank You
17:55 25 Jun 21
The staff is so nice and caring. I had an emergency and they saw me right away and did exactly what I needed them to do. I wish I could give more than 5 stars

I'm terrified of dentists. Let me elaborate a little on that. I don't mean I get nervous or I need something to calm my nerves or whatever.... I mean I've been kicked out of dental offices for screaming. Normally, I need to have IV sedation to get any sort of dental work done, so what I'm going to say next should hit super hard:Dr. Irby is the best dentist I've ever been to. And I've been having intense dental work done since I was around 11 years old. So I've been around a -lot- of dentists.After putting off extracting a molar that had broken off (and the middle had fallen out) for about 6 or 7 years, it finally flared up to the point where I couldn't sleep for days, and I knew I needed to bite the bullet. I was extremely skeptical of how things would go, based on 26 years of dental history, and the fact that he didn't even have nitrous (not that nitrous ever really quelled my excessive terror). However, he proceeded to give me the most PAINLESS numbing shot I've ever gotten in my life. Followed by some painful ones in other areas of my mouth, but I forgive him. 🙂 I normally don't get fully numb (part of my terror), but he had me the numbest I've ever been. He got my tooth out painlessly, and I didn't scream once.He was extremely kind and calming the entire time (as was the assistant). I even made another appointment! Unheard of for me! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Irby if you have extreme dental phobia!
02:26 28 Apr 21
I have awful anxiety of the dentist. I literally am in my 30s an I will cry at my appointments. No matter what is being done. Every time I’ve been to see Dr Irby, he and the staff has never made me feel ashamed of crying or breathing hard or getting upset. I know it has to annoy them. Specially him an the assistant he has at the time that’s helping him. They are just trying to do their job an I’m in full toddler mode. 🤦🏻♀️ I’d recommend them to anybody. On top of dealing with my craziness they seem to actually care! An the work that’s been done on my teeth so far. He’s amazing!
02:07 26 Mar 21
I had the best experience today at Irby Dentistry! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Irby. Went in to see about getting bonding work done on my two front teeth that I have been ultra self conscious about for years. Another dentist had quoted me quite a bit more and Dr. Irby beat their price by a long shot. I left out feeling great with a whole new smile and feeling better about myself. He also worked me in the same day to have the work done. Thank you Dr. Irby for the new self confidence and all the ladies in the office for being so personable and professional!!

If you are looking for a dentist that actually listens and genuinely cares about a patient you have found the right place. The staff is also amazing. I highly reccommend Irby Dentistry.
18:58 23 Feb 21
I discovered Dr. Irby after my regular dentist failed to respond to messages about a dental emergency. Dr. Irby met me at his office on a Sunday to attend to the problem, and I wasn't even an established patient. I transferred to this clinic after that. I have had nothing but good experiences with the staff and procedures. Dr. Irby always takes the time to talk through options, and patiently attends to questions and concerns. I have always had a lot of anxiety around dental work, and I have never felt more at ease. Very pleased.
16:37 09 Feb 21
Dr. Irby was awesome did an amazing job along with his fantastic assistant Ashley. Anybody who’s looking for a dentist office to go to. Stop ya searching now!!! because this is the place you want to be at!
22:01 07 Dec 20
Excellent experience. Highly recommend.
23:35 18 Nov 20
Dr. Irby helped me out of a pickle today, not often you wake up to have a tooth extracted out of the blue. Glad he could see me this morning and did a bang up job.
20:02 04 Nov 20
Dr Irby is amazing! & i highly recommend him! I never felt the numbing process, and both of my fillings were done pain free. He explained what he was doing before he started and made sure i was comfortable during the whole procedure. His staff is super friendly as well. Overall a great dentist!
20:44 22 Jul 20
Was looking for a dentist that made me feel comfortable and seemed to care about me as an individual. Dr. Irby and his whole staff made me feel welcome from the time I walked in the door.
13:20 15 Jun 20
I’m a new patient of Dr Irby’s. The office is newly remodeled and very welcoming. The staff very nice and helpful. Everything is very high tec that he uses for his work. His is very gentle giving a shot. I would highly recommend Dr, Irby he is very caring and wants what’s best for you.
01:14 04 Jun 20
DR. RAMSEY AND DR. IRBY ARE EXCELLENT. 5 Stars for sure.
20:35 14 Apr 20
Dr. Irby has hands on an angel 👼. I never once felt him numbing me with the needle. He was very caring and carefully explained everything he was about to do. Easy to talk to. Pulled 3 of my teeth and worked with me with the amount, since I was a cash patient. I never even knew he pulled my teeth he was done before I knew he even started. Would recommend him over and over again. Best dentist I have ever been to.

I (like a lot of people) have a fear of dental procedures and visits in general. I really am unsure as to why I have a fear, but regardless, this fear has caused me to avoid dental treatments for years, which means my teeth are in not-so-great condition. They were able to get me a same day appointment for a tooth ache I was experiencing, which turned into 2 fillings. Nichole and Dr. Ramsey were nothing short of amazing. Nichole did my intake and xray and assisted with my fillings and was so sweet! Dr. Ramsey was very knowledgeable and gentle during the fillings . I always thought I would be the person that needed cleanings/treatments under "laughing gas" or anesthesia but that was not the case. Not only did my fillings go smoothly but I also appreciate how kind and understanding they were about the condition my teeth were in. I definitely plan on returning to them for my future cleanings and treatments!
02:50 03 Mar 20
Everything about this office is amazing. The moment you check in you’re met with a smile and friendly faces everywhere. My family has never experienced such delight when dealing with dentists! Dr. Irby is kind, patient, very knowledgeable, and GENTLE.Wether he is working with me or my 2 young kiddos, he’s a gentle soul that’s always excited to see everyone. My kids think he’s the best! How often does that happen? That a kid loves going to the dentist!I highly suggest to anyone that may be browsing for a new dentist, to stop by here and give this crew a chance. They are unlike ANY place we’ve ever gone before.I’ve had a dental emergency, was in excruciating pain and Dr. Irby got me squared away and coached me through the whole process. He took the time to make sure the job got done right, and made sure we fixed the problem. No rushing, no condescending remarks, just one honest dude who truly wants to help people!If I could give these folks more stars I would!!
21:13 06 Feb 20
Great experience!!!! Thorough and efficient!Highly recommend this dentist.
00:19 02 Feb 20
Dr. Irby replaced some shoddy fillings I had done by a dental student and I immediately felt the difference. He was very patient with explaining what was causing me pain, he worked quickly, and he definitely made the right call! I've also never had such a painless shot when he was getting me numb, I will definitely be going back for future work!
01:33 29 Jan 20
My first dentist after moving to Virginia and I would highly recommend this to everyone I know. From the receptionist to the dentist the attitudes are spot on.
16:18 22 Jan 20
I was able to get an appointment the same day i needed it. I found Dr. Ramsey and his entire staff to be very friendly and helpful as wellbas competent. This was my first visit but I will be back!
19:12 21 Jan 20
Irby & Ramsey are the best dentist in Roanoke, Va. The work that they did for my teeth is excellent.
