I really am happy with this dental group. The only thing is that I requested nitrous oxide and this was not available. I was undergoing procedures for 3.5 hours and this might have been helpful (not sure, never had it before.) Everyone did a good job trying to relax me and was professional; however, after the proceedures I was sore the next few days from tensing up so many muscles. I was also exhausted from the "ordeal" and ended up sleeping 12 hours. I would liked to have tried to nitrous oxide. On the other hand...WOW! I had almost ZERO pain in my mouth the next day! I did not even have to take Tylenol! And my teeth look and feel great. I can really notice the difference. Thank you all for a great job and a beautiful office.

4 - I am confident it will be a 5 next visit. I had the grinding dental chair which was quite loud but I'm sure will be fixed. I also had to wait for the laser as I understood 1 laser for 3 dental hygenists. Wait was a little long. Again I am sure times will be shorter next visit. Really appreciated the staff and high tech approach to dental care. Dr was great.

It had been quite a few years since I had been to the dentist because of bad experiences in the past with a different dentist. They put my mind completely at ease and worked with my fears to help me understand that they were there to help me, not make money and push me out the door as quickly as they could. I have already recommended them to my family and would happily recommend them to anyone out there that has any fears of going to the dentist. Just be honest and open with them - they were helpful and amazing!

Susan Foley is an amazing hygienist! In addition to a wonderful upbeat attitude and professional demeanor, the cleanings she does as part of my regular periodontal maintenance are thorough and pain-free. I'm confident that her work and the time she spends on educating me about home care are making the difference so that I will be able to keep all my remaining teeth! Kudos to Susan and the team at Rita Ranch Dental Group.

I have never seen the same dentist twice in this office and understand it is due to changed hands and coming and going dentists. It seems the Watkins will be there longterm and I hope they will be. The staff is always very polite and seemingly understand that most people do not like the dentist. I hope to build a better relationship to feel like I have a family dentist and that they will come to understand that I actually DO enjoy the dentist. My overall experiences with all of the dentists in and out has been excellent.

Everyone there is fantastic - I didnt have to wait, I was taken care of, not stuck sitting in an office for 30 minutes with no attention! I appreiciate that! I also like that there is not magazine clutter everywhere. Nothing worse than used magazines (in my opinion). I also did not even have time to pick up a magazine either, which is even better. I keep telling me fiance he needs to come in and stop putting it off! I also love that you guys are basically paperless. You should offer a reciept instead of just printing one.

I have had dental problems all oft life, almost 50 years. I also brought in my daughter with braces and wisdom teeth issues. On top of that I brought into son with autism. I was skeptical as this was a new dental office for each of us. We were treated kindly by the front office staff, respectfully as new patients and with general care based on our individual issues. The staff was able to get a full set of X-rays fry son with autism that showed that his wisdom teeth were coming in sideways. He is non verbal so we would have never known. They had them extracted the following week and I have never seen him more comfortable in my life!! I would recommend this dental group to everyone I meet. They are the best!

I am really impressed with the entire team at the Rita Ranch Dental Group. Everyone seems to take pride in their profession, and also makes the customer feel that they actually care about the patient. Also, I was very grateful for the way that they were able to fit in a long procedure on short notice after they realized how hard it would be for me to take time off sometime in the future to do the procedure. They get the job done, with a smile and compassion.

I was very pleased with my experience at Rita Ranch Dental Group and Orthodontics. I think I only waited about 1 minute before being taken back. Everyone was very friendly. At other places you see the dentist when they are looking at your teeth and that's it, but this dentist greeted me before getting x-rays done, checked on me periodically, and said goodbye before I left. The exam, cleaning, and x-rays were very thorough. Everything was explained very thoroughly as well. I would definitely recommend going here for all your dental needs. Thank you!
