I wanted to thank you for taking the time to see me. I was in a lot of pain with my tooth and you went above and beyond with your service. Everyone was so kind and made me feel so welcome in your office. Thank you for your excellent care!
What an amazing place! RiverRock staff are spectacular in every way. Our entire family loves this place, from our 3 and 5 year old to my husband and I. So comfortable, friendly, flexible, knowledgeable, conservative with procedures they recommend…just a great clinic!
For most of my life, I’d had the usual phobia/paranoia about “going to the dentist.” As a result, I allowed regular dental maintenance to be neglected. My first root canal brought me to your group(UGH!) two years ago–but every visit since then(and including that one) has been honest/comforting/supportive! Don’t get me wrong…I still catch myself clutching the armrests and being somewhat “wide-eyed” during the whole “in the chair” process. I know every visit won’t be a walk in the park…down the road. Teeth are like cars/houses(and bodies)…they need regular maintenance.
Your team is TOP NOTCH! They are smart professionals–yet they all allow me feel like part of their “Family.” And that feeling is very comforting! Keep up your great work! Thank you!
We strongly believe in the concept of preventive care and education when it comes to optimal dental health. The key part of prevention is to have regular check-ups every six months. Some patients may have more frequent visits depending on the recommendations of the clinical staff.
At your regular recommended appointment we can diagnose any problems or areas that may have cavities, cracks in a filling, or tooth and gum disease. We want to help maintain the overall health of your oral health.
Preventing disease starts at home with good oral hygiene habits and a balanced diet. We also recommend using a soft bristle toothbrush which you change every 3-6 months. It is also very important to change your toothbrush after you are done with an illness like the flu or a cold. There are many bacteria that live and grow on a toothbrush!
