Doctor Ruffner is amazing! He really cares about his patients and about the work he does. He knows I have terrible anxiety but he still wipes the tears away when I’m having a hard time. I can’t thank him enough for all he’s done for me and my family. I really appreciate his dental hygentists too, his son is following in his footsteps. The young lady (can’t think of her name) that is working with him now is really friendly. I think the young man’s name is Brandon? He was really nice too. Kristine and the font desk staff are awesome too. We’re on a first name basis, lol And finally, Karen … Karen, you are just the epitome of awesomeness. I appreciate you because you take the time to know me and it reflects how much you care about your patients and work. You tell it like it is and that’s how it should be. Thank you, everyone! :)
