    • Dr. Rice, Just a few words to let you know how my dental visit was. This was my first visit with Dr. Rice, and staff. I was a bit apprehensive, but soon found out about there professional way in which I was not only treated, but I also found out, how much they cared about my personal health. Dr. Rice ever so calm, and understanding about your fear. If I have to do it over and choose a Dentist, or suggest to a friend, it would be Dr. Rice. He followed up with a phone call that evening, of my extraction of a wisdom tooth, and was concerned. For that I thank you! I hope I will not need him for anything in the near future, but his phone# is now in my memory dial. Regards, J.E. Small A 5 star Rating

    • I’ve heard about oral sedation and had no idea how relaxed I’d be but really don’t remember anything other than sitting down in the chair. When they told me I was through, I felt so refreshed like I’d just finished a great nap.

    • When my daughter told me I could nap while I had all the dental work I needed done, I thought she was teasing! Dr. Rice has proven to me that dental visits can be relaxing and I’m so glad I found him. I have two new bridges and porcelain crowns and feel like I look twenty years younger!

    • I’m not fearful when it comes to dentistry, but my schedule doesn’t allow much time out of the office. Dr. Rice suggested oral sedation so we could combine several appointments into one, which worked out great. I wasn’t fatigued or drained at all after a 6 hour appointment and was thrilled with the results!

    • I thought I’d never get over the trauma of having painful dental treatment as a teen. My teeth were in horrible shape and I couldn’t even bring myself to make an appointment. When I learned Dr. Rice could do my dentistry while I had twilight sleep, I at least wanted to talk to him. That’s all it took. He’s so kind and I immediately knew he would be the one who could help me get over my fears. Now, I’m so much better. Looking back, it all seems so silly but all I know is that my smile looks a million times better!

    • The best thing about I.V. sedation is not remembering anything about my dental visit. After years of dreading everything about dental visits, Dr. Rice finally gave me a way to be there without even knowing it! My smile looks great now and I feel better knowing my mouth is finally healthy.

      I would like to thank you for extracting my poor tooth and a wonderful repair and new addition to my denture.

    • Thank you so much for giving me such a beautiful smile. I had not realized how self-conscience I had become over the look of my front teeth. Now I’m confident that my smile looks great! Also thank you for your enormous generosity! I truly appreciate it!

      Thanks again,

      Thanks so much for saving my smile. I am so grateful that you were willing to come into the office on your day off to help me.

    • I always leave Dr. Rice's office feeling I've had the best up-to-date dental care possible. All questions are completely answered. Oral hygienists working in his practice routinely share the results of the newest studies in dental care. Dr. Rice has been my dentist for 22 years. He has seen me through root canals, crown work, old filling replacement, and repair of chipped teeth. I cannot imagine going to another dentist.

    • Excellent and professional care is given by the entire Rice Team, from receptionist, hygienist assistant, hygienist to the Doctor

    • I have been a patient of Dr. Rice for 15 years or more and find him and his staff to be excellent with their skill and chair-side manner. I never feel pressured to purchase services/treatments, that said it is their obligation to advise me on what is available. I feel that people need to remember that...just because the doctor tells you about options and how much those options cost does not mean they are trying to take advantage of you or trying to upsell you. I have never felt a hard sell approach from anyone in the office for anything. I have referred people to doctor Rice and will continue to do so because of his top notch dental care and his educational approach to dentistry.

    • Dear Dr. Rice

      My deepest, heartfelt thank you for your generous and kind “dental” donation to the poverty stricken people of Haiti. My MISSION TRIP is June 12-June 15 and I am so honored and blessed to be able to take the toothbrushes, tooth paste and floss that you so generously donated. I appreciate Chandra’s help and I look forward to sharing my “story” when I come in for my appointment in June. God Bless! Thank You!
