    I really appreciate Dr Rice approach to dentistry. He is really very educational by encouraging proper dental habits. Personally, he encouraged me to use the Philips Sonicare with the Diamond Clean brush. This really helped greatly reducing my plaque levels in subsequent visits. Highly recommend his practice! Addendum dated 08/15/19: In a recent appt for a cleaning, Dr. Rice personally recommended an improvement application in using an electric toothbrush. He not only told me about it, demode it, but had me actually do it with him. Great technique and pedagogy! Addendum May 23, 2023: told Dr Rice I was getting lazy in my brushing habits and he suggested that I brush twice a week for 3 minutes. I absolutely love how he always provides solutions, very personal effective solutions to his patients!

    I'm not fond of going to the Dentist. But the staff and Dr. Rice were amazing and helped me relax. There was no rush, and my options were properly explained to me. I entered in pain, and thought I would be losing some teeth. Dr. Rice gave me more options, including keeping my teeth for now. I can honestly recommend this place for your Dental needs. I will be going back.

    I have basically lived in various dental offices my entire life and have always had horrible luck with my teeth. But Dr. Rice and his team not only make things comfortable but they genuinely care about their patients. After a difficult journey to getting an all on 4 (at the age of 26 mind you) the staff was cheering and tearing up with me as I was able to smile once again. Through the entire process they were nothing but kind and honest about what needed to be done, the risks, and even just they're general practice of dental work has been the best I've experienced in my MANY years of needing dental work. I no longer fear going to the dentist, I don't even get anxious anymore and that is due to the team at Dr. Rice's practice. I truly cannot say enough nice things about the people who work here and the work that they do.

    Driving 45 minutes to see Dr. Rice and his staff is well worth it to me. My friend is a dental lab technician who says of all the dentists he works with Rice is the best. Dr. Rice works hard to focus on both form and function of my teeth. He has installed bridges and crowns whch are beautuful. He borders on perfectionism which is fine by me! The staff is great to. Always feel welcomed and friendly. They also worked out a payment plan which worked for them and me. While I know Dr. Rice can develop a long term plan, he never tries to have me spend more than I need to. I can't endorse Dr. Rice or his staff more strongly.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Rice for 10 years. Dr. Rice and his staff are incredibly thorough with their work, kind and attentive. Words can not express the gratitude I have for their help with my dental care plan. It is through each and every person there that my anxieties and fears of dental work are put aside and I trust them 100%. Had another amazing cleaning today. Thank you all.
