Testimonials - About Our Work

If you think you would like a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere where we take the time to know you and your needs, we'd appreciate the chance to serve you. Our practice is state-of-the-art in every way but one -- we're old-fashioned when it comes to service. We still believe in treating every patient the way we'd like to be treated. Please contact us for an appointment.


Everyone at the practice is super friendly, starting from the front desk to Dr. Mahlin. I normally get the first appointment in the morning and I have never had to wait. I have been going to them for probably 20 years and have never had an issue that isn't promptly resolved. Last time I had my crown done, Dr. Mahlin even gave me his mobile number in case of an issue. I'll definitely recommend them.

Dr. Mahlin and his staff are absolutely wonderful! His bedside manner is among the best, if not the best, when it comes to compassionate, patient-centered care. He even called me after I had a new crown placed just to see how I was doing. He's thoughtful, gentle (both as a person and as a dentist), and most importantly is excellent at dentistry! His staff couldn't be friendlier or more accomodating and I have never had a long wait in the waiting room. I would give him 10 stars if this rating scale allowed it!

Gregory Polites

Kim, my hygienist, is the best, she has a passion for insuring she does her best to ensure patient comfort and that I will leave with the cleanest teeth and gums as well as a plan for addressing potential issues! Dr. Mahlin is very professional in his final inspection and verification of any of Kim's findings while performing the cleaning. An added bonus that Dr. Mahlin provides is a follow up call in the evening to ensure that your experience that day for treatment has gone as expected and there aren't any abnormalities. Very Caring person!

John Helbing

I've been a patient for 16 years and have never known anything less than wonderfully personal, completely professional, and totally compassionate care from Clarkson Dental Group. I have always and will continue to give them my very highest recommendation!

Gretchen Heim

My husband and I have been patients at Clarkson Dental Group for many years. We have always been extremely happy with their quality of care and expertise, and we continue to feel this way since Dr Mahlin has joined the practice. This is the most well-run medical office I have ever been in. They are always on time, they never take longer than what's scheduled, and I've never felt rushed when I've asked questions or wanted to talk about the treatment or options. ALL of the staff are friendly, professional, patient, and caring. They are all genuinely good people. I highly, highly recommend them!

Yvonne K.

Have been patient for years and couldn’t imagine going anywhere else! Staff is super friendly and great dentistry practice overall. Would highly recommend!

Ashley Hoffmann

I have been with Dr. Scott Mahlin for 9 years. I have been terrified by dental work and would avoid it at all costs for years, until I met Dr. Mahlin. If you are in need of a kind, caring, compassionate dentist, you need to schedule an appointment with him. Through the years with his help and lots of patience, I have gone from being white knuckled scared, to getting my teeth cleaned without any anesthetic. This is a major accomplishment for me (who had to have sedation for this before). Make your appointment today! I can actually say I enjoy going to dental appointments now.

Diana O.

Wonderful staff and dentist! They take their time with you and are very caring!

Cindy Boudinot

This is the first review I've ever written. I probably wouldn't be writing this one if it were not for the wonderful experience I had and continue to have with the team at Clarkson Dental Group in Chesterfield. I hadn't gone to the dentist in years because of a really bad experience. Needless to say, one day I had no choice. I was referred to Clarkson and reluctantly made the call. I can honestly say I haven't been that frightened about doing something in a long time. I was pleasantly surprised. They made me feel so comfortable and took such good care of me that I almost look forward to going to the dentist now. I at least enjoy going in to see all the friendly faces and I'm no longer afraid to go to the dentist. Thank you everyone at Clarkson.

Kim Thompson

I have been going to Clarkson Dental Group for 19 years, even returning to their practice twice after my relocation to Chesterfield. I have not received the same high-quality dental caliber elsewhere when I was employed out of state. Both my parents were patients, and had referred me to this practice in 1989. Dr. Boyle, my former dentist, had retired, and Dr. Mahlin took over this practice. Like Dr. Boyle, Dr. Mahlin is an excellent dentist…very caring and gentle. In addition to Dr. Mahlin, the dental hygienists and front desk receptionists are cheerful, accommodating, professional, compassionate, and genuinely interested in me. I feel like I am a part of their family as we discuss our jobs, families, trips, and whatnot. I have been scheduled into their tight schedules for an emergency procedure twice, and given complimentary follow-up visits. I received follow-up calls from Dr. Mahlin to check on my well-being. The office receptionists took care of filing my dental claims and even checking on insurance eligibilities and costs for me. When I was faced with a huge bill, I was given an opportunity to pay the bill in installments. Dr. Mahlin and his staff attends continuing classes to keep abreast of new dental developments, best practices, and certifications. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs as you will find that everyone goes above and beyond their scope of duties for you! By the way, I chose to continue my relationship with this practice as an out-of-network patient!

Dana S.

I cannot say enough great things about Clarkson Dental Group! I have 'high dental anxiety', and was searching for a practice that offered sedation dentistry for some extensive work I needed. I also wanted to feel comfortable and confident about the dentist as well. Dr. Mahlin and his staff (Pat, Caleb and Jerri) went above and beyond! From my first call and first visit, to the actual appointment, sedation and follow up, they were all amazing. Each step was explained in detail, discussed, and any questions I had answered. I was given a clear outline of the costs for the work I needed. They submitted my claim to insurance, as well as provided payment options for the amount not covered. When the actual work was being done, my comfort was always their first priority, and the end result (3 crowns and two large fillings) turned out beautifully! If you are looking for a wonderful dentist, please visit Dr. Mahlin and his staff at Clarkson Dental Group!

I was hesitant to go . I was referred by a friend of a friend . I had pain ! I called and they got me in the office that morning. Everyone was so professional but yet like they've know you for years. The Dr. explained every step he was going to take. Preventive care first .His chair side manner is exceptional and he listens to you as well. He even called me that night to follow up on me. This is a number 1 team of professionals. I would highly recommend this practice !!

Casandra Scales

Clarkson Dental Group team are awesome! I have been a client for at least 20 years. Dr. Mahlin blends in so well with this great group of people. He has a gentle professional manner and skill, that is very much appreciated. I think it would be difficult to find a dental practice that exceeds your expectations, is prompt, professional, efficient and friendlier, than this practice.
