    “Dr. DeRice is incredibly knowledgeable and I completely trust him. He has a good sense of humor, and he spends as much time as you need answering questions. His assistant, Ramon, is easy going, gentle, smart, and also has a great sense of humor. He even gave me advice for a cruise I'm about to take! He made the "flipper" for the tooth I had pulled and it was amazing. You couldn't tell at all that I had something other than my real tooth. Then there's Christine, the office manager/receptionist. She is amazing! She works very hard to save me money through my insurance and does whatever she possibly can to schedule appointments that meet my schedule. She makes me laugh and even though she's very professional, she doesn't mind joking around. Great office, great people to see for a not such a fun reason!” - Pam Kilborn

    “I recently experienced a fracture of a tooth and managed to lose an older crown. This was clearly unexpected, and I certainly did not expect to get an appointment on short notice. Well, I should have known better. Dr. DeRice and his staff worked me into an afternoon appointment for an assessment for the same day I called! After the assessment, I was scheduled for a repair session within a few days! Many thanks to Dr. DeRice and his staff and also to the patient who likely gave up a slot so that I could receive treatment!! I have every confidence that the repair will be of the same excellent quality that my family and I have received over the years!” - Gary R.

    “The news was not good, however the procedures have to be done. Dr. DeRice has managed to save teeth that would have been pulled years ago.” - Earle P

    “I come from away and was in Portland when I suffered an unexpected dental emergency. I saw the sign on the street and pulled in. Friendly staff. Was booked immediately. No nonsense service. I was very grateful to have it handled immediately. My new tooth looks great! A nice souvenir of my visit to Portland.” - Sid C.
