I was terrified of dentists thanks to a truly horrifying experience at Western Dental. Dr Rick was referred to me by a friend & it took all my courage to make an appointment & go! Dr Rick has completely rehabilitated my attitude about dentists. He is the kindest & most gentle dentist I have ever seen. He is a fantastic sense of humor, state-of-the-art equipment, friendly, professional office staff, in a warm, welcoming environment which puts you at your ease. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Rick.
