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!

I rated the cleaning as "basically satisfied" because my teeth were not cleaned on this visit. We were starting from "scratch" (exam & X-rays) & the dentist is making a new upper denture for me, which is what I am most concerned about right now. Also, my financial options were clearly explained("layman" terms were used, so that I could understand what was being offered)for which I'm very grateful. Each & every aspect of the visit was also clearly explained beforehand, by all the professional persons I encountered & everyone was very polite & seemed to really enjoy their jobs. Dr. Watkins is very nice & helpful & he listens to me & then offers me options for treatment & we are "on the sames page" as far as my treatment plan.

Even though the staff found a cavity, they were able to squeeze in a filling. This helps because my schedule is a bit hectic and I would have trouble finding the time to return and get it taken care of. The cleaning was much nicer than the last time I was there. The hygenist walked through everything with me. The dentist was very professional and took the time to review everything with me. The staff worked well as a team, even in the developing stages. Everyone was polite courteous and helpful.

The office is well run and the people are excellent. I enjoy going there - except for the cost. I gave the dentist a "more than satisfied" rating rather than a "very satisfied" rating because I had only a very short time with her and therefore did not have sufficient time to really rate her. She was excellent.

i'm not overly fond of the water type cleaning method. I prefer the old fashioned manual kind. the sound is reminiscent of a drill and isn't a calming experience, plus the cold water on my teeth isn't a pleasant feeling. it would be nice to have the option of the other type of cleaning. the hygienest was very excellent and thorough and knowledgeable. this is not a criticism of his ability. it is strictly my preference.

She answered all of my annoying questions, took care of everything for me and got me an appointment within 48 hours! To be completely honest, her friendliness, skills and optimistic outlook are the main reason I stayed with this office to receive my treatment. I am extremely happy with the treatments I received from the tech, hygienist and dentist that took care of me. They were all very professional, clean and fresh, explained AND displayed their work on the video monitor system. I truly felt like a valued patient.

I was very nervous to have my wisdom teeth pulled, knowing that I have never had any surgery preformed before. The staff at The Rita Ranch Dental Group made it a very comforting experience calming my nervousness by explaining the procedure that was about to unfold. They were very nice to me and helped me with everything I needed including finging out my insurance cost and everything else. I must say this was a great experience and I would highly recommend the Rita Ranch Dental Group to others if they want a pleasant experience.

1. I am not fully comfortable with the computer/signing pad process used. The rate of flashing through screens and then signing off in concurrence/approval while sitting in the chair pending treatment leaves a lot to be dsired. One really doesn't truly know what has been signed off on. 2. I recommend having someone at the reception desk from opening. Upon arrival, myself and another patient plus a delivery person arrived within seconds of one another with no one present for at least 5 minutes. Not the end of the world, but not the best of situations neither. 3. Unlike with prior dentists, description of treatment vs claim submission as reflected on claim description in the billing summary from my insurance upon claim settlement isn't easily understood. I have had no problem with what my insurance has paid and your bill for what is due, but understanding the claim submission is not clearly understood.

First off, let me say that I demand and expect the highest caliber of care and service when it comes to my healthcare needs. That being said, I cannot express how FANTASTIC and EXTREMELY PLEASED I am by the professional team at Rita Ranch Dental. I would like to recognize Laura and Josselyn for their skill at taking the easiest, most efficient, and most comfortable set of full mouth x-rays I have ever experienced. My cleaning was also performed by Kristacia and she was extremely thorough, yet gentle. She also gave me some fantastic hints and tips on how I can improve my oral hygiene at home. THANKS! I am saving the best for last, however. I Would especially like to recognize Dr. Caroline Ogunware for her outstanding chairside manner, dental aptitude, and profesionalism. The only thing more outstanding than Dr. Ogunware's dental skill is her brilliant personality. Going to the dentist is easier and more pleasant with her. I will follow her advice anytime. Thanks Dr. Ogunware!
