“Staff is great and very thorough!”
B.W. – October 2019
“Awesome staff! Dr. Dycus recommended a bite guard for me for my grinding and clenching. What a difference! Not only has it protected my teeth, but it ensures a better nights sleep.”
Nelda Stepp – March 2019
“Dr. Dycus and staff are friendly, experienced and on time. It’s been my experience that many dentists will tell you that work is necessary that is not. Dr. Dycus proves himself completely honest and provides the highest quality of dental care. I drive 80 miles to see him and every time i try to find a closer dentist I find that they cannot compare with the quality and low prices of Dr. Dycus.”
Cindy Mueller – March 2019

Ann Weser April 2018
I first chose Dr. Dycus more than 20 years ago because he was recommended by a neighbor who said he was “gentle” and I have always found that to be true. Through all situations, even losing fillings, having cavities and biting his fingers! I moved 35 miles away 18 years ago and I still come back to him. I have always had a positive experience and not a single complaint. The staff has always been great.
Ethel Beaty February 2018
Dr. Dycus and his staff are wonderful and caring people. They’re very accommodating when emergencies happen, such as a broken tooth.

S. Bowman November 2017
Thank you for taking me as a new patient. My first visit yesterday was certainly a positive experience in every way. My first contact was by phone when Jennifer’s pleasant personality and answers to my questions gave me a very good initial impression. I met Theresa yesterday, who also is very nice. Lee Ann is a super hygienist. Her smile put me at ease and she was gentle, informative and impressively thorough! I like Dr. Dycus and appreciate his detail in double checking a tooth he thought possibly had a problem. When I left I was so surprised to receive a “welcome gift”. I appreciate the pretty pen and the T-shirt! It feels nice and fits me absolutely perfectly.
J. Tilley September 2017
I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Dycus; I am completely at ease in his dental chair. He is a brilliant and skilled doctor with a kind staff that is excellent!

A. P. June 2017
I enjoyed my dentist appointment. Dr. Dycus was very thorough and answered my questions. LeeAnn was amazing and gentle and answered my questions and concerns as well. Great experience!
R. W. April 2017
I went to Dycus Dental because of headaches and joint pain. I was surprised when they asked about dizziness, ringing in the ears, muscle tenderness and sensitivity of teeth. Dr. Dycus explained that grinding and clenching of teeth can cause all of these symptoms and that a bite guard to wear at night can help. Now, I am not dizzy anymore, I am not having headaches, no more ringing in my ears. I can get up in the middle of the night and not worry about falling and breaking my neck – I was losing my balance but not anymore. The bite guard works great and it has been such a relief. I will never be without one!
Pauline W. April 2017
Fantastic service and they improved my smile!
Wesley Ballard March 2017

Love the staff. I had a partial made and it looks so wonderful and natural. Like my real teeth! Nobody can even tell I have an upper partial. I’ll be getting a lower partial soon!
W. T. November 2016
Well, I’m 67 years young and believe it or not I have had the most wonderful experience at the dental office of Dr. Richard W. Dycus. Dr. Dycus and his wonderful staff have brought back a smile on my face that I haven’t had for a very long time. Over the years, I’ve had extensive dental work done and for some reason I have been fearful of dentists because it has never been pleasant. All that has been changed. The Lord has blessed me with Dr. Dycus and Tammie his assistant. Even my daughter cried when she saw the mom from the past. I have dentures that take me back to when I was young. I’m so grateful that Cookeville has Dr. Dycus and all of the staff for their warmth and kindness. Thank you.
Linda Smith November 2016

I drove from Nashville to get Dr. Dycus to do a root canal. Why? In Nashville, the root canal was going to cost over $1400. Dr. Dycus completed the root canal in about an hour. The cost was less than half the Nashville dentist. His staff were sweet and wonderful. I didn’t even have to take so much as an aspirin afterwards. My tooth has never hurt again!
C. M. Feb 2014

M.E. October 2013
I had been to three different dentist in the last ten years and all of them said there was nothing they could do for me. I was over at Dr. Dycus’ office one day doing maintenance and just asked him if there was anything he might could do for me. He looked at my situation and said, “I believe we can. We will have to run some tests and check with the lab and then see.” I am really happy with the results! People are telling me I look younger. I am very happy with the outcome!
T.N. October 2013
I need to thank all of the amazing PROFESSIONAL dental folks at Dr. Dycus office. My special thanks to Tonya. Made my experiences here great. Can’t wait for another crown!

E.L. September 2013
I recently had a crown done by Dr. Dycus. I am extremely happy with the result. When I first came to see Dr. Dycus, I had not been to a dentist for about 10 years. I had a lot of dental work to be done. He has done crowns, replaced old fillings, placed new fillings and generally gotten me back into good dental health. I come regularly now so that I can stay in good health. I have always been very picky with my dentist. And Dr. Dycus is great!
B.D. September 2013
Dr. Dycus is amazing! I was in a car accident in high school and despite the fact he was not my dentist, Dr. Dycus stayed open to fix my tooth that had been shattered in the accident. I switched to him as my dentist and have been with him for about 25 years now! Even though he is out-of-network as far as my insurance, I will continue to come to him for my dental care. He is very personable and approachable! Top Notch! —
I recently finished my Invisalign. I LOVE the result! It was well worth it and I would do it again!!
D.B. August 2013
I have never been a fan of dental work, despite the excessive amount I’ve had to have done. Since I began seeing Dr. Dycus, my teeth have looked perfect once again, and I no longer rue visits to the dentist. With a friendly staff and expert care, I would recommend them to anyone who has ever had reservations about getting their teeth worked on… an entirely pleasant experience–
R.W.R. August 2013

I have been a patient of Dr. Dycus for several years. Recently I had to have a bridge. The results exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with the care that Dr. Dycus and his staff provide. They do great dental work.
I am a new patient. My friend told me to see Dr. Dycus to get my tooth out. I didn’t know it could be this easy. I worried for nothing.
