Oral Health for Overall Health
"I have had a close professional association with Dr. Lingam for the past 3 years and have had many opportunities to observe her work. She has shown herself to be talented, meticulous, caring, and conscientious and her patients can rest assured that they are receiving the finest, most up-to-date dental care available." Scott A. Martin DDS, PS
"For the past few years, we have had the great privilege of working closely with Dr Lingham. We have found her to be a dedicated and caring dental professional with outstanding clinical skills. We have truly enjoyed working with her and assisting in the care of her patients." Dr. Ralf F. Schuler DDS, MSD
"Dr. Lingam has a compassion for her art and her patients. Her ability to see where I came from and where I wanted to go with my dental health gave me a confidence in her ability. She let my teeth and older dental work assist in telling the story. She has a patient and personal touch with children, anxious adults and seasoned-dental-chair veterans as myself. Add to this, her concern for your comfort during procedures, and you have a great champion on your team.
Her vision for my dental well being went beyond the desire to correct older dental work. She addressed my gum health, nighttime grinding and nutritional adjustments to assure the longevity of the work that was done. Somewhere between the bridgework, the crowns and dental hygiene routine, my teeth got a second life. My self-confidence came back with my smile and my diet expanded with the ability to eat without fear of breaking or losing more teeth.
She has such a wealth of knowledge and training in her field and a drive to continue learning more. Not just new procedures, but the why’s of changing methods and materials in dentistry. Rest assured, if it’s new and can benefit your situation; Dr. Lingam will consider it an option and find resources that can make it happen.
She has a resource team that maintains the same high standards for workmanship and compassion. That means a lot to me, to know that if the doc doesn’t know, they know someone who does. This is a sign of a true human behind the mechanics of dentistry." Ardith B
"Dr, Lingam is respected by both her patients as well as colleagues and associates as shown when I was referred to a specialist who informed me that he only took referrals from a small number of local dentists. She provides her patients with clear, easy to understand information and is always ready to listen to questions and concerns. Dr. Lingam has a calm, reassuring demeanor that puts patients at ease and has skill that proves itself in positive outcomes from difficult procedures. She always takes the patient's feelings and needs into the decision making process for any procedure, but doesn't hesitate to advise her patients when there might be a better alternative. I would recommend her for individuals and families looking for a positive dental experience." Victoria C
“Our whole family sees Dr. Lingam, she has been our dentist for 14 years. She was the best change we made for our boys years ago. She is a refreshing, kind and caring dentist. She found problems our old dentist missed saving us thousands of dollars and many a tooth ache. When my boys were old enough to make their own appointments they never missed their appointments because they knew she cared about them and they liked seeing her and her staff. Boys not missing dentist appointments should tell you volumes about the care she provides. We love the care we get from Green Valley Family Dentistry.” Kelly S
“I had a wonderful experience at Green Valley Family Dentistry. I’ve been going there for years. Terri is very friendly and great at communicating via email or phone about upcoming appointments or any changes to schedules. Dr. Lingam is very understanding and professional and truly cares about her patients overall health. She’s constantly learning new information and up to date on the latest research. She even researches her patient’s health conditions and how it relates to their dental health. I look forward to my cleanings every 6 months. I’m never rushed, or pushed into any procedures. Instead, Dr. Lingam educates me to make my own decision about my dental health. I appreciate her natural, holistic approach to dentistry. Highly recommend!” Sarah D
“I’m sure there are plenty of good dentists in the world—it’s just that I like Green Valley the best. I feel like they take the time to care for me the most and Thusha, our family dentist, even does most of the cleaning herself. I trust her completely and I’ve had all kinds of work done over the years. Do yourself a favor and go with an up to date and caring specialist.” Denny
“Dr Lingam and her excellent assistant Terri offer all I want in a dental experience: kindness, gentleness, incredible care. I have had dental work done at several dental offices in town, and have found Doctor Lingam’s practice the perfect one for me. Dr Lingam’s office is a traditional dental practice, without all the glossy pitches for cosmetic procedures (Botox, etc) that other dental offices tend to push presently. Dr Lingam and Terri work closely together to ensure excellent dental care for each patient. Green Valley Dentistry is a caring, woman-run dental practice that has consistently treated me and my teeth very well. Thank you Dr Lingam and Terri!” Sarah C
