Dentist Reviews in Peoria

When maintaining the health of your smile is your goal, finding the right dental office is key. Whether it’s time for a dental exam or you’re simply searching for a new dentist, you might ask, “How can I find a reputable dentist near me?” With our quality dental services and caring staff, our office is the place many patients call their dental home.

How We Aim to Provide the Best Dental Care

At our office, we’re on a mission to help every patient achieve his or her best smile. Our goal to strive to deliver the best dental care possible begins with the relaxed, welcoming environment that we create at our practice. We strive to be friendly and helpful towards everyone, answering patient questions and helping them understand the details of their treatment plan or insurance coverage. If a dental procedure is recommended, your dentist will ensure you feel safe and comfortable throughout the appointment. We know that many patients feel nervous when seeing the dentist, so we seek to alleviate your anxiety by providing a calm atmosphere.

While visiting a dentist is often essential to maintaining long-term dental health, preventive care at home also is important. Many people come to us with questions about how to create a great oral hygiene regimen, and our dentists and team members provide the information they need. As part of your customized treatment plan, your dentist will recommend oral health products and hygiene techniques that can improve your dental health. Even if you’ve avoided seeing a dentist for some time, it’s not too late to restore your dental health through quality dental care.

If you’re searching for quality dental care and a welcoming dental home, look no further than our conveniently located office. Contact us today to make an appointment, and continue reading to find reviews from our patients.

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! :)
