Elgin dentist Dr. David Rice is unique in his approach to serving his patients. He believes in being a health partner with his patients, not merely a health provider. This is one of the reasons he continues to rigorously study from and with the leaders in dentistry and oral health.
His patients benefit in many ways. Oral surgery is one area where these benefits shine through easily. Since Dr. Rice can perform oral surgery in addition to general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry in his Elgin office, patients get continuity of care from diagnosis to surgery to beautiful restorations where needed.
Not only do patients come from nearby cities like Elgin, St Charles and Bartlett, IL, but they come to Dr. Rice from long distances to benefit from his skill and expertise.

Accelerated Healing and Recovery
Dr. Rice also uses tools and techniques to protect you against bacterial growth and to help you heal more quickly and efficiently after oral surgery. One of these techniques is to use the patient’s own plasma to introduce additional growth factors during the procedure that will minimize pain and quicken the healing process.
