What Our Patients Say

I have been sharing the story of this dental journey with family & friends. Although the healing of my teeth was what brought me to all of you, that has really been such a small part of what has been healed for me & it seems important to share this part with all of you.

At the end of my last session when Dr. Rice put the poem up on the monitor, something very quietly but very deep healed & 65 years of fear released from my body. I ‘consciously’ realized it later when I was sharing the story with friends . . . there I was – sitting in a chair that terrified me, surrounded by equipment & machines that represented torture-ous experiences for me – but today I was looking at beautiful birds gathering around a bird feeder & reading a lovely poem. I felt only a little residue of anxiety . . . mostly I felt at peace & tremendously grateful!

Please extend my thanks to your amazing team that helped to make this incredible healing possible.

Excellent work! I was very nervous but the staff was very generous and so was Dr Rice. I would recommend him to anyone

I was introduced to Dr. Rice because my son’s pediatric dentist recommended him. My son is mentally handicapped and Dr. Channon thought Dr. Rice would be good for Ken. Dr. Rice has done so well with Ken, it takes a lot of patience.

My fear of dental work stems from childhood. With Dr. Rice’s help I have gotten over most of it. First I started with using Halcion, I was not afraid or anguishing about the appointment. After a few visits, I was able to have my teeth cleaned without taking anything.

Dr. Rice’s entire office staff has made me and my son feel like family. I now use the IV Sedation for extensive treatment, only because it is easier on me. I would recommend Dr. Rice to anyone who needs a dentist and is VERY AFRAID. (I used to cry just talking about it).

Dr. Rice has provided me with the best experience that I have ever had with a dentist. He offers very well-researched advice and his staff always provide beneficial tips that are GREAT for your teeth and overall health. He also comes strongly recommended by actual Medical Doctors. I have had many dentists over the course of my life and have always had very sensitive teeth. Dr. Rice and his staff solved this longstanding problem with quality advice that I wish I would have known about years ago They always know the best toothpaste, tongue scraper, mouthwash, and toothbrush, all based on factual research. They are also not afraid to constantly improve on their advice and processes as new research comes out. I also had to have a filling on my first visit over two years ago. His shot was painless and the work was world-class (I know because I have had many fillings). It is simple: if you care about your teeth, go see Dr. Rice. He is worth a very long drive and your entire mouth will thank you. Denise Gianpetro of his office is also amazing!

From the front desk to my oral hygienist to Dr. Rice, the dental care I receive at this practice is the best. The staff are friendly and pay close attention to my concerns and questions. Information on dental care is current and readily offered. I think I am most comfortable here because I am treated as an individual and not just another patient.

As I have been accustomed to expect, today’s experience with Doctor Rice was excellent. Of course it is always even better when I do not have to schedule any additional work. The staff is always in a good mood it seems. They are friendly, respond well to questions, are kind, courteous and of course, competent. Thank you.

As always, I love my dentist! He has always taken the extra step to prevent, not just protect and treat. For this, I am immensely grateful. He is very generous in his care for patients and care for his community. He does so well by doing good. His staff is always very welcoming and they all really make you feel like you are at home. For as much as I can love a dentist, I love this dentist!

I had horrible experience years ago with dentist, to the point that I couldn’t step a foot into a dentist office for years. Dr. Rice and staff helped me change my view and I feel extremely comfortable when I m there. His staff is amazing.

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.

Dear Dr. Rice,

Thank you so much for the dental work and teeth cleaning that was done on Christopher last week. I was greatly appreciated. Also, you have a great staff!

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!

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.

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

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.

Dear Dr. Rice and Shannon~

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.


Marita S.
Elgin, IL

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,

Dr. Rice~

I would like to thank you for extracting my poor tooth and a wonderful repair and new addition to my denture. I found you to be very kind, honest and caring person with a good chair side manner. I found your staff very friendly and they made me feel very welcomed and relaxed. I look forward to your services in the future.

Dr. Rice and Staff~

I appreciate the wonderful treatment I have received while I was getting my dental work completed. You are knowledgeable, friendly, concerned and so is your staff.

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.

Shannon C.

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!

Maureen S.

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!

Kelly B.

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!

Jean W.

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.
