Best dentist I've ever had! Would recommended to anyone I know!
I am missing a few adult teeth and have been living with temps for the last 8 years. I've reached out to other dentists for consultation, but they've always given me minimal information and rushed me to make a decision. Dr. Rick Winters laid out all the options for how to more permanently replace these missing teeth, and patiently answered all my questions. He understands that cost and time is a big factor in making decisions about oral health, and definitely doesn't pressure you into a decision that makes you uncomfortable. Most recently, he did a couple fillings for me - and it was the first time that I wasn't miserable afterward! I drive 80 miles to see him, and I wouldn't want to go to anyone else!
He was great and well spoken made u feel like home for me to just be first timer at his clinic... Explained thing well... Am looking forward the next visit thank you again?
Nice people throughout the office. Very professional and courteous during my visit.
It was a pleasant experience. Richard Winter explained what I needed to get done and the staff there was very helpful.
