I met Dee when I first came into the office and I had questions galore about transferring to this office, what I had to submit, making appointments, etc. Dee has superior customer service skills! 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 in the office a long time, and was very tired when I got home, but really pleased with my care, the staff and my new dentist.....Would have liked to have heard a few more options, but I am sure I already knew them.Appreciated all the financial considerations....Enjoyed chatting with everyone, you made me feel welcome and like you cared about me as a person and not just my money. Thank you. I will see you again....thanks.

i am very pleased with the service and individual attention. my denture broke and the office had it repaired and back to me within 24 hrs. Ans I am thrilled with whomever repaired the denture. the fit and appearance are much better and more comfortable than when it was new. no rough edges or thick lumpy places that always bothered me.

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.

Very satisfied with entire staff...it did take a little longer than expected and overall i was extremely disappointed that the long term care i need is so expensive...this is the reason why my teeth are as bad as they are...the cost to get done what needs to be done is out of my reach which depresses me me because all ive ever dreamed of was having a decet smile...

my original appt should have been rescheduled because there was no dentist, so we had to reschedule a 2nd appt for the exam and xrays. We weren't informed until we got there. My 2nd appt there was confusion at the front desk, the man there seemed to want to help someone who was already being helped, after greeting me. very confusing.

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!

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Watkins. A dentist is a very personal choice. I have had my dentist for 16 years and it was hard to change. After seeing Dr. Watkins, I felt like HE was my dentist for 16 years. I made the change and couldn't be happier.

This has to be the most pleasant dentist that I have ever had. My teeth were not in the best condition because of years of being embarassed to go to the dentist. I did not feel like I was being judged when I walked in and the dentist was only happy that I decided to make the step for dental health and not making me feel aweful for past bad dental decisions. Dr. O not only knew what she was doing, she had an excellent chair side manner that put me at ease despite all the work I got done at my appointment. All the staff there was awesome, but Dr. O was the highlight of the visit and the reason why I have no reason not to return to the dentist. Rita Ranch is a great place and I am intending to tell everyone that I work with it an awesome place to go.

For a 15 minute consult, I had to wait 45 minutes, and I was on a real time schedule. I read 2 full magazines too! Also the dentist was rough with the mirror as he went around my mouth--and he also said that that I was abnormally sensitive to the probing (which caused me to jump)--which is NOT usual for me at all! Front desk and dental assistants are great!

I was truly impressed with such professional knowledge that Keith (the hygienist) displayed. I never had such a good teeth cleaning nor did I have a mercury treatment which was suppose to be part of the cleaning package offered in my dental plan which replaces some depleted minerals that acids from food and drink removes. The new Dentist Dr. Watson who bought the Dental business from Dr. Swenson even talked to me and told me what my expenses were going to be and showed me a great deal of curtiousy. You have a five star from me people. ((:

This was the first time in a long time that I felt somewhat relaxed at the dintist. Normally I have to tightly grip the arms of the chair when my teeth are being cleaned, but this time I didn't have to and I would just like to thank my hygenist for being considerate of my comfort.

This was hard for me to complete. I had several family members being seen in one visit, so I'm not quite sure if their experiences matched mine. We were overall satisfied except we didn't realize that some of us would have to schedule cleaning for another time. Fortunately, you were able squeeze in the school-age patient so as not to have to reschedule during school time. It seemed like staff schedules were a bit crammed - not sure who was availalbe to do what with which patient. All, however, were very kind and professional.
