"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."
A study conducted in 2013 concluded that word of mouth remains the most popular form of recommending a business. We are grateful that our patients’ referrals of friends and family account for the majority of our new patients. The same study concluded that 79% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. In our experience, even people referred to us by our dearest patients will check out our online reputation before deciding to schedule a visit. So we realize the importance of our online presence and hope to improve it with reviews from our patients and provide the following instructions to make the process easy for those who have not reviewed online before:
