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! :)

The staff was amazing from the moment I called about a possible broken tooth. Everyone was personable, down to earth and its apparent to me that everyone is well educated in their field. I ultimately had 3 appointments in a matter of 5 days for a general exam, a deep cleaning (which was surprisingly not bad and I had no real pain during the cleaning) and for a filling. And thanks to the available discount via dentrite, I found this all to be extremely affordable. What really surprised me, was how much I laughed because the staff is just that calming and down to earth. I cannot thank you all enough for being extraordinary at what you do!

Before you try to get pregnant, see an affordable dentist for a thorough exam and teeth cleaning. If your dentist finds any oral health problems, they can be resolved before you get pregnant. The appointment also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about dental care and pregnancy.

Endodontist Peoria Specialties: Understanding your Treatment
Endodontic treatment is a type of affordable dental care that eliminates pain and infection when a tooth is diseased. Beneath the layers of white enamel and underlying dentin, each tooth has a soft center called the pulp. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and tissues that helped to nourish the tooth while it was developing. Once a tooth becomes mature, the pulp is no longer essential and can be removed if it becomes diseased through infection or tooth decay. The […]
