Please let us know about your visit.

Dr. Trisha O'Gara is the first dentist that I've had that does not hurt when she gives the shot, I dont even feel it.

She shakes and moves your cheek and that really helps. She is wonderful.

My dentist of 10 years, Mike O'Gara, DDS, is part Dentist, Artist, Architect and Master Builder. Due to parental childhood negligence, I have had to have many repairs, which have been done to perfection and with the utmost care and respect of me, the patient.

I get compliments on my smile all the time and hate to think how self-conscious and sad I would have been if I had not been able to get this wonderful work done on my teeth with Dr. Mike.

In addition, Dr. O'Gara has the most welcoming, kind and knowledgeable staff that I have ever encountered.

"Everyone does a great job here, or else I would not be a patient here. I like to joke with the people. But all joking aside, this is best of everything. If you need work done, this is the place to come.

Ginger and the rest of the staff make me feel good.... just like a prince."

Dr. Michael O'Gara's dental practice is by far the best dental care I have ever received. His technique for applying anesthetic is outstanding. Not only is his technique gentle, and pain free, it allows for a gradual almost unnoticeable decrease in discomfort as the anesthetic wears off.

 He identified some serious problems that had gone undetected for years by other dentists. He has superior bedside manner. He shows he is genuinely concerned about his patient's level of comfort for the duration of the treatment. He is a super nice guy. He even called me at home to ask if I had any special needs or concerns before my first appointment!

He is clear, informative and involves the patient in decisions about their dental health care. The entire staff, from the Hygienists to Insurance staff, is professional and accommodating. I refer anyone I know looking for a new dentist to Dr. O'Gara.

Seven years ago my wife and I retired and moved to Northern Nevada after fifty-eight years in another state. Changing doctors and dentists can truly be an unsettling dilemma. I asked my former dentist for recommendations and he consulted his Alma Mater director for graduates in this area. On the short list was Dr. J. Michael O'Gara. It is without reservation to say that I am deeply indebted. My dental care has continued with the same professional expertise that I enjoyed for the last fifty-eight years. Dr. O'Gara is to be commended for his practice of dentistry as well as his personable nature. His staff is a valuable compliment to his skill.

Joseph K.

My name is Joseph K. and I have been a patient of Dr. Michael O'Gara since March of 2010. He volunteered his time and work to the Donated Dental program, and he decided to take on my case. I would like to take some time to communicate just how wonderful my treatment has been and first and foremost Dr. O'Gara himself.

He takes the time to explain the treatment you require and answers any questions with a thoughtful concern; that is definitely not common with other dentists in our area. Secondly Dr. O'Gara expresses concern for the patient during procedures that help to create a relaxing environment that goes a long way to helping any dental procedure.

Third; the Dr.'s quality of work is very high, a lot of time is taken to make sure everything is perfect and meets the expectations of the patient.

My dental needs were very complex including deep fillings, gum reshaping, a partial plate, and an extraction. When I had a problem with one of the teeth he had worked on, he happily had me return and fixed it completely. I had lived with severe dental pain and dental problems for many years, so finding a dentist willing to do all that I needed and do it in a fast, friendly, professional manner was amazing.

I would also like to add that Dr. O'Gara's entire staff is some of the friendliest I have ever worked with in any Dr's office, EVER. They are friendly and knowledgeable and go very far to set the stage for a good visit.

I must say that, after being a patient at several dentists in the Reno area throughout the years, Dr. O'Gara far surpasses them in quality and care, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of the best our area has to offer.

Carina W.

I have always felt uncomfortable when going to the dentist and getting dental work done, but as soon as I sat down in Dr. O'Gara's office, I felt comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and Dr. O'Gara has a genuine concern for the patient's comfort. He was very, very gentle and, I know it might sound crazy, but I honestly never felt any pain or discomfort. He is kind, and honest, friendly, and passionate about what he does. Thank you to the entire staff at O'Gara Dental. I look forward to being a patient for years to come.


Sina W. & Family

Dr. J. Michael O'Gara has been an essential part of my family's health since moving to the Reno area from the South Pacific several years ago. With exceptional skill and gentleness he and his staff have not only provided preventative and correctional oral care, but have also been available to treat emergency dental problems for my children and me. He was also able to diagnose, treat, and correct a long-standing dental problem I had suffered from, for years. Dr. J. Michael O'Gara -- He makes us smile.


Steve M.

I've enjoyed my new whiter smile. It makes me feel years younger. The only downfall is I had to fend off more beautiful women!!


Ann M.

I feel very happy now to greet people with my smile. I feel it makes me look younger and more confident. I am very happy and pleased and I wish I could have done it sooner!!


Pierre H.

It was always important to me to have a nice smile and now I have one thanks to Dr. O'Gara.


Bill A.

Having braces and getting veneers has turned out to be the most important thing that I have ever done for myself ever. I only wish that I had done this years earlier. Never before have I been so complimented for my smile and flirted with. It has also helped me tremendously being accepted in business situations and my presentations to large audiences have never been so well received. I, myself, enjoy watching videos of my presentations and seeing my great smile. Thank you (Drs.) Mike and Bill O'Gara and Jackie (my Hygienist).

Ron G.

This is the best thing I have done for myself. I have always believed that smiles are an addictive quality of our personality. I have received more compliments from people -- Some just ask "What's different about you?" Thanks to Mike and his staff for my new smile -- and the smiles from others it generates.
