Very knowledgeable and professional.  Dr. Phan is the best dentist I have ever had.  When he did my anesthesia shot, there was no pain. He told me everything he was doing throughout the procedure.  Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I have been a patient here for something like 35 years. Love this place and the staff. I enjoy going to the dentist because of this team.

Needed to find another dentist around the area, decided to give this place a try. Was able to schedule an appointment fairly quick. Got scheduled under Dr. Pham. Day of the appt: Checked in the front desk and after 10 mins, the dental assistant came out to greet me, prepped me up for xrays etc. Then Dr. Pham came in the room very energetic and went over my xrays with me and consulted me on what work needs to be done. Luckily it was very minor work since the last dentist told me I have 10 cavities, I needed a 2nd opinion and hence here I am. He saw only a couple of cavities that weren't that major and kept a close watch on it as long as I brush and floss everyday I should be fine. Did some teeth cleaning with the hygienist and that was it. The staff were very nice and friendly. Dr. Pham is conservative with his diagnosis which I like. Dr. Shively was also there to greet me. Such a friendly place, I highly recommend.....Forgot to mention, I love the massage chairs, it was very relaxing. :)

I feel comfortable here and know that my "teeth" are in good hands! Been going to Dr. Shivley for years. He's the best.
More
The absolute best dentist and staff! They have been keeping my teeth in amazing condition since my baby teeth days.

I’ve been going to Dr Shively’s office for the last 30 years. Great staff, great dentist even his new associate is awesome. I’ve worked for a couple of dentist previously and this office is one of the best in Bakersfield. They are very thorough, professional, and very honest! Staff is exceptional from the dentist to the hygienist and the front office!
More
Very peaceful environment. Everyone is very pleasant and caring. Didn't feel rushed. Compared to my previous dentist this office is extremely better! No crowded waiting room.No wait time.  You can tell that they are there for your needs and not just the money. They even went above and beyond for my parents giving them the most care! Highly recommend!

I been going to Auburn dental for 18 years great staff very professional
More
This place is awesome the staff is friendly and caring! They really took the time to understand my needs and get to know me!!! They gave me an X-ray and asked about my history! I really liked that the dentist explained what I needed and what I wanted for myself! We talked about flossing and the  usual however I didn't feel intimidated by him uncomfortable instead I felt at ease because he used examples when explaining and talked to me like a person not a patient you know :)Apart of my usual now!!! I loved my visit !!

This is one of the finest dental practices in town. Both Dr. Shively and Dr. Pham are outstanding and the office staff is top-notch. They have the latest equipment, are extremely gentle, and super friendly. I am so thankful to have them close by, in a beautiful office, too.

Let me start off by saying that going to the dentist is something I used to dread more than I can say. I say this only because I have had the worst experiences ever throughout my life and I am 61!. All of this changed yesterday when I went in for a crown at Auburn Dental Center. Dr Pham and the staff are all truly amazing. He is kind, patient, thorough, and his knowledge and skills are fabulous, to say the least. I can NOT even tell I had any dental work what so ever - other than my new crown took away the discomfort my cracked one gave me, AND it was made right in the office! No waiting for two weeks with a temporary.  I really can't say enough positive things and am so very happy my friend gave me the referral.I highly recommend Dr Pham and this fabulous office!!

I just had a recent visit to this dentist, I was a new patient to them. Over all I had a very good experience here being my first time. They made me feel very comfortable especially since I have a fear of dentists, the staff was super kind. I did have a bit of a wait time, my appointment was at 10:45 and didn't see the hygienist until 11:30 or so. The hygienist was sweet & kind she explained everything as well as Dr. Pham. I definitely don't mind coming back here for my routine cleanings.
More
Absolutely the best experience I've had in a dentist office.  They had all of the newest technology I was really impressed. I can't say enough about the staff. You can really tell they love working there! I felt amazing after leaving her office. So glad that I chose Auburn dentistry!

Dr. Shively, has been my dentist for 30 years. His dental office is one of the best in town without exaggeration. It all starts when you call and setup an appt and walk into his office that the patient is provided the best service possible. All the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Dr. Shively has a new associate Dr. Roger Pham. They make a wonderful team providing the same quality care. I was pleasantly surprise when I met doctor Pham. Dr. Pham is friendly and quickly makes you feel comfortable and safe in his care. He performed a complete neck and head cancer evaluation on me, and mentioned oral cancer was on the rise and wanted to make sure everything checked out ok. He advised my husband to go see a dermatologist because of an unusually shaped mole on his neck. He advised me to think about a recommendation he made to me. I appreciate his approach in the way he explains his findings in his exam and in making his recommendations. He is always aware of what the patient might be feeling and is always checking with the patient if they are doing okay when he is working in their mouth. I’m very happy for Dr. Shively and for his patients, that he now has Dr. Pham working with him because I know Dr. Shively wants the best for his patients that’s why I have been going to see him for 30 years.

Dr Shively and his staff are all fantastic. They make having to go to the Dentist a very pleasant experience. They are very punctual as far as keeping appointment times are concerned. I don't think I have ever sat in the waiting room longer than 5 mins.If you ever need a crown, this is the place to go. They have a in-house machine that will create your crown within 1/2hr. (No multiple visits needed).

Love Dr Shively assistants periodontist and front desk staff. They are all so kind.

I was looking for a new dentist closer to home & which meets me needs. I'm glad to say I found my dentist at Auburn Dental Care! The staff was so friendly and made me feel comfortable . I had some fillings done and everything went well. I will continue to go to ADC & recommended them to all my friends.
More
I'd gone to different dentists in town but this is the best place ever! They get me in and out in no time, they never make me wait. Their facility is beautiful and their staff is the best.

Let me preface this by saying: I hate having to go to the dentist. I have had a LOT of dental work done and it is usually painful and without much care for the patients' wants or feelings towards treatment. This is the first dentist that I have ever been to that actually included me in the decisions on my treatment plan. The staff was all very friendly and seemed to genuinely care about me as a patient. Everyone was incredibly helpful and understanding of my anxiety about dentists. Dr. Shively is incredibly nice and answered all of my questions without making me feel rushed. They don't overbook so you get a lot of face-time with the dentist, and they also give you real time estimates for your visit so you can plan the rest of your day accordingly. He actually spent quite a bit of time talking to me about my personal dental needs and what we can do to optimize my dental care. I am actually looking forward to going back to see Dr. Shively. I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family members! I already told a friend about him and they are planning to schedule their next appointment with this wonderful team! It is so hard to find a good dentist these days and I feel like I have found a hidden gem in their practice!
More
Absolutely the best dentist, and dental staff in Bakersfield. The chairs are massage chairs with TV's hanging over them. If you are here for a crown it's one stop. No temp needed. Dr Shively has a machine that can make the permit crown while you wait. He is great at matching the color too. I've been coming here for as long as I can remember. I would highly recommend his office for the best and most honest dental care in Bakersfield
More
Really top notch dental office.  I don't see how they could be any better!  Dr. Shively is extremely gentle. and never rushes.  He constantly asks about any pain you may be having during procedures, and is very concerned with your comfort level.   There are TV's above the chairs so you can keep your mind occupied while getting your dental work done.  I even got to watch my new crown being made in office while I waited.  Which was great because it didn't require having to spend a week or two with a temporary crown in place.  Just one visit and done.  His staff are also great!  His long time office Manager Cindy is spot on with billing and insurance.  Never a worry.

Just had the best experience you could ask for from Dr. Shively's dental office.  Had to have a crown put on today and usually you get prepped fitted with a temporary then have to come back for the permanent crown...not at Dr. Shively's!  He has this state of the art machine that mills the permanent crown in office and you can watch your crown being made...awesome!  Done in less than 3 hours on my way home very pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend this dental office.
