"I recently took my 85 year old mother for her dental appointment. She has dementia and I was concerned about how she would react to returning to Rye Smiles after a 2+ year absence. She did amazing well and I attribute it to the staff, who treated her with kindness, understanding and patience. She was greeted by name as soon as we walked in and the staff was genuinely happy to see her. We had had to reschedule this appointment twice due to unexpected health issues, and each time I called, the receptionist asked how my mom was doing. I highly recommend Rye Smiles."

What Others Say
The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) selected Dr.Rye in 2012 to receive the AGD’S Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR). Earning this prestigious recognition from the AGD symbolizes Dr. Rye’s dedication to dentistry and the fulfillment of his professional responsibility to “give back” to the dental profession and his community through his volunteer efforts.
