What a GREAT dental office!! The staff & doctors are wonderful & caring professionals. Every time I go there it feels like visiting family. If you are looking for a dental office that cares about you & your dental needs …. THIS is the OFFICE!!!
Deborah P.
Quick appointment and flexibility with being a bit late due to train and traffic. Doctor Ruffner has a good chair side manner.
Janet P.
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! :)

William S.
Dr. Ruffner was recommended to me by my son. As a new patient, the office was able to give me an appointment within a month’s time, and sent two reminders via phone and through text in order that I did not forget my appointment. From the point of walking into their facility, I was greeted very kindly by Tonya, assisted by Richard who guided me through all x-rays and procedures, treated by Karen who was very gentle in testing, and then met with Dr. Ruffner who examined and very professionally told me step-by-step what he recommended for my dental care. Richard related back to Tonya throughout to make sure what my insurance would cover, and when checking out all follow-ups were in place. I could not have asked for an entire staff to have been any more personable or professional, and I left with a very positive feeling that my son had made a wonderful recommendation. Thank you to Dr. Ruffner and his staff for being so kind.
