With Over 337 Five Star Reviews Canyon Rim Dental is the Place for You.
Me and my whole family love Canyon Rim dental. Dr. Sam is very attentive, and explains things very clearly at all times. I love how he gives follow up phone calls after treatment to make sure his patients are doing okay. I would definitely recommend this office to everyone! All the staff are very amazing. Shout out to my favorite hygienist Trista as well. She keeps my teeth so clean and I love her work.

I have had some terrible experiences with dentists, so I am a bit skeptical when I have to get work done whether the dentist is going to be good or not. Dr. Delahunty was incredibly friendly and did an amazing job - the staff was super nice and helpful! If you are looking for a dentist who actually cares and has some awesome bedside manner- Canyon Rim Dental is the place!

Fantastic work by all. Staff is spectacular. I needed a root canal, but with the careful work executed by the doctor and his staff, I felt no pain and had an easy recovery. Also, they give you a pretty awesome cup when you join... so yeah, don’t be stupid just make an appointment.

I had a wonderful experience at Canyon Rim Dental. I don't like the dentist. I avoid the dentist if I can, at all costs. I cracked a tooth. It needed to be fixed. Dr. Sam determined that I needed a root canal. It was the easiest and quickest appointment from start to finish. He's the best. Maggie

Excellent experience sums it up pretty nicely; however, more explanation is needed to really drive home my great experience.Dr. Sam and his team were all very professional and also very welcoming. I had a rather complicated procedure which was coordinated with doctors from out of state as I moved to Utah mid process. Everything went very smoothly, and my smile has been restored to it's previous state. I really appreciated the fact that Dr. Sam provided a follow up call to ensure everything was going well and I feeling ok. One important aspect which can't go without mentioning was that Dr. Sam and his team took the time to explain the procedures very well, and also physically show me what they were dealing with. This provided the reassurance that I was being cared for by a team of people with in depth knowledge and a sound understanding of what it takes to do a great job. I would recommend Canyon Rim Dental to anyone looking for a dentist office of the highest quality, professionalism, and genuine patient care. -Jared

I’ve had a few dentists in my lifetime, but I’ve never been so impressed then I am with Canyon Rim Dental. The staff is fantastic, I’ve learned things about caring for my teeth from the hygienists that I probably should have already known, but never did. They are friendly and helpful. Dr Delahunty is kind and knowledgeable, he takes time to explain any concerns or procedures. He makes sure your comfortable during a procedure and out of all the numbing shots I’ve had (which are many) his are by far less painful, I don’t know how he does it, but I swear it doesn’t hurt as bad as other dentists I’ve had. He also put a crown on my then 5 year old son and fixed a few cavities for him. He was so good with my son and helped him stay clam and it was overall such a great experience for him too.
Just had a crown down today, Dr. Sam is the best! I had an emotional experience as a teenage with having to have eleven cavities done. Today as I sat in the chair to have work done for my crown old memories came back. Dr Sam sensed my nervousness and took time to make me feel at ease. And all through the procedure he kept checking to make sure I was alright. Not only was it a good experience while I was there, but later tonight he called me personally to check to see how I was doing. That was going above and beyond ! I really feel he and the staff are very friendly and helpful and concerned with my needs. Thanks Dr Sam and staff!

I was clenching and grinding my teeth so bad that I was experiencing severe jaw pain. Some nights it would take me hours to go to sleep. Dr. Sam recommended a night guard and it has been a total life saver! My jaw pain has gone away and my quality of sleep has improved greatly!

If your looking for a great dentist I recommend this office. Dr. Sam Delahaunty is amazing! The staff is always above and beyond nice. They are great with kids too. Austin my son loves going here for his cleanings. It’s been a nice experience for our family.

I recently had to have some work done with Dr Sam Delahunty to repair some failed work done by a previous dentist. His work is excellent I feel like he had all the latest tools and techniques. The 3d imaging is awesome! He explained the problems and procedure to me so I felt comfortable. As a dentist I feel like he goes above and beyond! I'm very happy with all the work I had done from Sam and his staff at canyon rim dental.
