One of the things our patients appreciate most about Ricard Family Dentistry is our ability to take care of so many services and procedures in-house. There is no need to get referrals or see multiple doctors for most dental issues. Something else that makes us unique is the fact that we are a multiple doctor practice. Patients have the distinct advantage of a team approach to their dental care with the husband-and-wife partnership of Dr. Arturo Ricard and Dr. Maria Ricard.
In addition to ensuring our office has a relaxed atmosphere, we also work hard to stay up-to-date on the very latest in dental technology. We want you to be comfortable from the moment you walk in the door until you are in the dentist chair receiving treatment. Our goal is to not only deliver the highest level of care but to provide that care with the best possible service.
We gladly accept our role in putting our patients on the path to optimal wellness and good health for life. Our mission statement, in fact, is, “We respect our patient’s time and accept our patients as partners in their wellness treatment. Our success relies solely on the consistent pursuit of excellence to deliver more than what is reasonably expected and to continually grow through education, both personally and professionally utilizing team philosophy and the mastery of leading-edge technology.”
