If you hate going to the dentist, you’re going to the wrong dentist! My first dentist appointment after YEARS of puttingit off due to past bad experiences. The experience I had here made me feel so silly for waiting so long! Dr. Ritter is kind and super accommodating to each patients specific needs.

I was very pleased with Dr. Ritter and his staff. I went to my appointment thinking it would be a consultation about my wisdom tooth that was causing me a lot of pain. He was able to extract the tooth thatsame visit without any pain or complications. I would highly recommend him !

This is THEE best Dentist office ever. I hate pain, that's why most people hate going to the dentist, the needles. When you can get a needle and barely feel it, PEOPLE, you have to keep them. I highly recommend thispractice. People that I have recommended came back to me praising them. They even worked out insurance issues. But here's a bonus: THE STAFF IS AWESOME. Not one of them are sour. Thank you Ritter Practice.

I can't even begin to describe how he took a procedure that was giving me a ton of anxiety and made it quick and painless. A ten minute pain free wisdom tooth extraction. In and out of the office in 30minutes. The office is new and clean, the staff is friendly, and the man is an all-star health practitioner.

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 forexams, 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!!!

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 hewas quick with the numbing injections and i barely felt them. He filled in my cavities quickly and efficiently. Staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend
