“I went to many dentists seeking advice on implants vs bridges vs partials. Dr. Rice took the time to sit down with me regarding my many options. Long term vs short term…his staff helped me coordinate the finances through care credit and I was happily sedated during my procedure! A follow up phone call that night – as he gave me his cell number to call if I needed anything over the weekend. He wasn’t trying to sell me anything – he was making sure I knew all about my options and helped me transform my embarassing mouth into a beautiful confident smile! Thank you!”
