Firstly, let me just say the folks at RA Dental we’re genuinely friendly and made great efforts to make me feel comfortable as a patient. Their personable, relaxed demeanor really put me at ease. Their exams are thorough, their cleaning is thorough, and the office is extremely neat and tidy. They also have a sweet deal for those of us paying out of pocket. I will be going back for sure.

I’m always really apprehensive about finding a new dentist, but RA dental is amazing. The service is excellent. Everyone is SO nice. I got a cleaning, cavity filled and root canal was done in one day! It was so nice to be able to do everything in one sitting!! Also, sometimes I have found that dental hygienists take all frustrations out when flossing teeth. NOT HERE. The cleaning was a pleasant experience. Also, the office is lovely. The chairs are more relaxing than other dentist chairs I’ve been in.
