Was only expecting a routine check up and cleaning but he informed me I had a few cavities and told me he could take care of them right then and there. I reluctantly agreed since I’m petrified of needles but he was quick with the numbing injections and i barely felt them. He filled in my cavities quickly and efficiently. Staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend

I have been going to Dr. Ritter for years. He has been a fabulous dentist since the first time I stepped in his office in 2010. My teeth always feel so happy after my visits. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dentist. I would also like to add that his office staff are amazing and all SO NICE!!!! I have never had difficulty making an appointment and I truly have nothing but positive experiences across the board over the years of going here. These days, I actually enjoy going to the dentist!! Thank you!!!!

Dr Ritter and his staff are professional, friendly and patient. The technology they use in their office surpasses that of most dental providers. In addition, the waiting time is minimal and the care is exceptional. My family uses dr Ritter for exams, cleanings, and most recently- Invisalign. Pricing is fair and the expertise that dr Ritter displays is phenomenal. I most certainly trust dr Ritter and his staff with my smile!!!

It went so well. First time I ever had a root canal done where I wasn't apprehensive and a bundle of nerves. Dr. Ritter explained it all to me and even set up a way I could signal him to stop should I became anxious or overwhelmed or just plain needed a break. He was cognizant of my fears and addressed each one by explaining exactly what he'd be doing. He even stopped several times during the procedure to ask how I was doing. He was kind, patient and caring. I need to go back to finish up and I can't wait.

Dr. Ritter was more than patient with me, anxiety and all. He was professional, gave me options, understood my hesitation about my financial obligations and gave me extra Novocaine to make sure it didn't hurt. Highly recommend.

He was fantastic!! I had a comprehensive checkup with X-rays and a cleaning done. The cleaning was a bit painful (I'm pretty sensitive), but when I said something, he put numbing gel on my gums and it went smoothly after that. The doc did not try to get me to get any more work done. He actually suggested it were best not to do added stuff, such as refill a crown that did not need refilling, due to the possibility of it potentially cracking. Dr Ritter is fantastic! I'll definitely be back in six months for my next checkup and cleaning.
