Would absolutely recommend Dr. Ricci - very kind staff, efficient service, a clean office and an honest, "conservative" approach (i.e. not upselling you on treatment you might not necessarily need). And they use an ultrasonic water jet rather than that dreaded metal scraper. Look forward to my follow up in 6 months.

Would highly recommend Dr. Ricci. He always answers any questions I have very thoroughly, and advised a mouth guard which has completely gotten rid of my jaw pain. The process, which I expected to take months, took only a few weeks. You also get an electric toothbrush with every visit - a nice perk!

Dr. Ricci was extremely thorough and informative during my cleaning. He went above and beyond when he noticed a white mass in my x-rays, going over it with an endodontist and referring me to his office just to be safe. Not to mention he is an interesting man with a great sense of humor and stellar wildlife photography skills. If I still lived in the area I would definitely still be a client!

Dr. Ricci and the rest of his staff were accommodating and friendly. Dr. Ricci's office has new technology that made my dental cleaning a breeze- especially because my teeth are highly sensitive. I would highly recommend coming here for dental work. I also appreciated that no one tried to upsell to me and made the experience comfortable.

Really great visit - quick and efficient, but wasn't at all rushed. Dr. Ricci thoroughly cleaned my teeth himself, reviewed my x-rays with me and sent me on my way with a bag of goodies. On top of all that, everyone in the office was very pleasant. I'll definitely make him my regular dentist.

Dr. Ricci was awesome. He had a 6pm appointment which was great for me because I didn't have to leave work early to be seen. We had great conversation and he was very informative and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Ricci for your dental needs.

Dr. Ricci and his staff were friendly and professional. The office was not busy so very little wait time. And not a dentist who pushes on unnecessary, extra costs. His cleaning technique is so fast so a great place for an in-and-out appointment

They overcharge the insurance company to maximize profits. The dentist was late and did not have proper rapport.
