Good service, friendly people. The only complaint I would say is that there was dust around the dental chair and what looked like blood. I know this place is extremely busy but it need to be cleaned up a little better. Other than that I would recommend this place to anyone............thanks!

I called late on 12/9 with a dental issue and was able to see the dentist the next day, when I arrived for my appointment the staff were very friendly, which helped as like most people I have a fear of the dentist. I met Dr Martinez and his assistants who put me at ease, and although I needed quite a lot of work , I felt they all cared about me, even though they were busy. I'm so glad I called and will recommend this Dental Office to everyone I know, thank you

Last experience it was a root canal. Overall the service, guidance and care that everybody gave me it was great as always. However my level of stress were over the top because it is a very long procedure with no breaks to relax my mouth not even for a second. I understand that can't be changed but it would help to have relaxing music and probably close the door maybe would help. The noises and talking on the hallway, bathroom doors opening and closing and commercials on the radio added to my stress every time I was trying to get distracted. This is the first time I feel that way while I'm in the office and does not has anything to do with my overall satisfaction.

I like the fact that the Dentist went over my X-ray's and showed me what we were looking at. I have never hat that at any dentist office and I like that. I like the assistant, and the info the hygienist had for me. She told me the info I needed during the appointment and the benefit of getting irrigation, I like the fact that you offer to clean the gums and get the bacteria put is AWESOME.

The only thing that affected my visit was the Dental assistant that took my X-rays didn't let my wife stay in the room while they were working on my teeth.She was rude and unprofessional about it. She could have let her sit in the corner like last my last visit my wife and children were in there for hours and there was no problem.

All aspects of my care was explained, as were my options. At work we are entering open enrollment for Dental care and they answered all my questions. It was wonderful.

My very first visit was for a very simple procedure. I needed a crown re-cemented. It went very well. But it's hard to evaluate some of the items asked in this survey because of it being such a simple quick procedure. The only thing I didn't like was waiting a whole hour when I had an appointment. But I will return and hope that the waiting time was out of the ordinary and won't be repeated.

The dental team at Rita Ranch Dental is amazing! I am not a fan of going to the dentist but this group made my visit exceptionally easy to deal with. I was there for an emergency - my tooth was throbbing and I fully expected to be miserable by the time I left. It was quite the opposite! Everything was explained to me ahead of time, everyone knew EXACTLY what they needed to be doing and I was out with minimal pain, a manageable payment for services and a plan to follow up so I can continue to keep my teeth in good shape. They are funny and light hearted but serious when they need to be!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone, any age with ANY problem going on!! You will NOT be disappointed!! Best dentist and staff I have EVER had the pleasure of working with!! Thank you Dr. Watkins!!

I feel that the importance of twice a year cleanings should be on all the medical plans. This is maintenance that is to keep us healthy. Being in the medical field for the past 40 years I've seen what poor oral care does on the medical side. Being able to afford the care is very frustrating. More education from medical plans is needed. Education in the school systems is needed. They teach sex education these days right? Why not oral care. Unfortunately you can tell ones financial status by their smile. This could be eliminated through better coverage and education.

The orthodontist assistant (sorry I didn't catch his name) who applied the bands put his gloves on AFTER preparing the materials and tools (e.g., took the bands out of the container, putting the tools on the tray, etc. all without gloves) It was unsettling for me and the only reason you didn't get 5 smiles.

Dr. Martinez seemed excited about using his new bacteria reducing laser technology gadget. It's nice to see long time career veterans still fully engaged in their work and in a upbeat mood while explaining procedures. I felt like I got concierge dental medicine style service at a (non cash only practice) place that accepted my Humana dental insurance.

The only spot that needs help is your front desk - when i initially calles to make an appointment i started by updating my insurance (which didnt get updated till i came in) then the guy tried to disconnect without making an appointment. When i called into get a sooner appointment i had to push to get same day and wasn't even given the name of who i was going to see. To have a name and Google search reviews would have helped with my severe anxiety. Otherwise this office is EXCELLENT!

Without exception, the attention of Dr. Watkins was the greatest highlight in my dentistry history (I am 66 years of age). Detail explanation was important to me and he made it a joy/wonderment to the science/health concerns, to which Doctors in the past had never taken the time to do so, much less that I would ever come to know on my own. My visit was more than a preventive/maintenance procedure, for I came out better informed and conscientious of a need to regularly planned visits.
