Here you are not just a patient, you are a part of our family!
Dental implants can be one of the most predictable and long term tooth replacement options available.
The CEREC machine allows us to do the majority of our crowns in one visit. Less hassle for you with the same great quality.
Laser procedures can be more precise. They can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies.
Our patients happiness is what matters to us.
“When my life long dentist retired, I had to begin again with Dr. Ricks. I can honestly say I have felt more welcomed and more secure with each visit. And I have so much more confidence that my teeth are taken care of and that I can call at any point with any problem. I appreciate him and the entire staff.”Callie Marstrand

“Best place ever !!! Dr Loveless took so much time explaining everything to me ,and the whole staff is just amazing ,, it been a month now since my first visit with Dr Loveless I got my dentures yesterday ! They look AMAZING , and best part they feel Wonderful !! I had been struggling with awful fitting dentures I was told well that was just the way it was ,I was so depressed about the way my dentures looked and fit I couldn’t talk or smile anymore ,, then Wow I was referred to Dr Loveless , by a visiting dentist from Dallas he told me if anyone could make me a denture that would fit it would be Dr Loveless the first visit I knew I was finally at the right place !!! He talked to me for a long time I felt like I was his only patient which I knew I wasn’t ,,, it took 5 visits to get my Beautiful new dentures but so worth the wait , not only does he know what he’s doing it’s not just job for him he CARES ABOUT YOU and it shows ,, now thanks to him I have a beautiful smile again !!!! And fit that I thought was impossible !! I would recommend him to anyone !!! Thank you so much Dr Loveless!!”Pamela Cook
“EXTREMELY kind and EXTREMELY accommodating. I don’t often rate five stars, but from the cleanliness to the above and beyond attitude of all of the employees I interacted with, I would say I am overly satisfied with my experience and will be returning. Dr. Ricks is a gentleman who puts education first in his practice and and sets his patients up for success. Thank you for one of the best dentist experiences I’ve had. PS. Your hygenist is very good at what she does and very informative as well.”Kevin Claypool

What's in a name?
The name "Yellow House Canyon" comes from the Spanish phrase "Casas Amarillas", meaning Yellow Houses. Early Spanish explorers of the area thought that a rock formation appeared to be a row of yellow houses from a distance and the name persisted. The canyon is nearly 20 miles long, stretching from the Lubbock Lake Landmark, through the east side of Lubbock, and ending about 6 miles east of Slaton.
