We’ll Keep You Smiling!
Our team … what to say?! They are amazing! The spirit among our team is truly exceptional. Communication is a big thing here: communication with each patient and with each other, so no small details are missed. Every single person here lends a hand and supports their teammates. This allows them to serve our patients in the most incredible way. Procedures are thoroughly explained, comforting amenities are offered, and all the t’s are crossed and the i’s dotted when it comes to the details. These people know dentistry and they know patient service! — Dr. Rentschler
I really enjoy our patients and seeing them through their needs at RDC. I want each person’s experience here to be happy and positive, from the moment they walk in, through their treatment and checking out. The team at RDC is a great group of people to work with. They are serious about what they do and genuinely care about the comfort and well-being of our patients.
