"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."
Dr. Rye’s focus on implementation of the latest proven technology combined with his philosophy that patient communication creates relationships to achieve the best in life allow him to perform truly Exceptional Dentistry. Exceptional Dentistry combines relationship- and value-based care with experience and a comprehensive approach for outstanding results. This is Dr. D. Gordon Rye’s personal professional philosophy for the practice of dentistry, and also his commitment to bring you only the very finest in care.
A unique element of Dr. Rye’s practice of relationship-based Exceptional Dentistry is the Personalized Dental Plan (PDP). The PDP is your roadmap to achieving and maintaining ideal dental health for the rest of your life. Dr. Rye and his team will prepare a PDP for you after you have had an opportunity to fully explain your dental desires and after he completes a comprehensive exam and extensive consultation.
Many cosmetic dentists are capable of showing you the beautiful work they have done for previous patients and are often times in a hurry to do the same thing for you. Dr. Rye, however, is committed in taking the time to know you and your dental desires. Only then are he and his team able to address all of your unique dental needs and desires. The PDP was born of this exceptional approach to relationship based patient care.
At Rye Smiles for Life, the appointment at which you receive your PDP is much more than a diagnosis. Dr. Rye spends hours considering each patient’s dental situation and desires, the available treatments and technology to achieve the patient’s desired outcome, and the options available to the patient to treat their needs and achieve their dreams. At your appointment, we go over our recommended treatments, your options, and any other considerations you choose to discuss with us.
Many cosmetic dentists are capable of showing you the beautiful work they have done for previous patients and are often times in a hurry to do the same thing for you. We have a different approach. We may show you previous work so that you can see how we custom fit dentistry to our patients, but we am committed to taking the time to know each patient and their desires. Only then can we address all of your unique dental needs and desires. Your Rye smile will be uniquely yours. The PDP was born of this exceptional approach to relationship based patient care.
