I have been a patient of Dr Rittenberg since 1996. I moved out of Jacksonville in 2012 for work and I have been to a few dentists since, but only for cleanings. I just don’t trust anyone else with my teeth. The office staff, hygiene staff and Dental staff are all so friendly and welcome me like family. I drive 5 hours from Ft Lauderdale to see Dr Rittenberg for fillings or any work. I had an embarrassing smile and my confidence is back. I slacked because I didn’t want to let anyone else do any invasive work. I will forever be a patient here, it feels like family and I never feel pressured for anything. Always leave satisfied with a great looking smile. Thanks Dr R and staff !!! You are life changers.
