Meet Dr. Rice
"Communication and long-term relationships are important. Let us know what is on your mind and please feel comfortable asking any questions." As a caring and skilled professional, Dr. Rice simplifies what is often a very complicated and confusing area of health care.
An Implant & Periodontal Specialist, Dr. Rice is committed to patient comfort. "For many the idea of periodontal or implant surgery is frightening. We understand that. For some, anxiety is created by the idea of 'being put to sleep' for a procedure. For others it might be the difficulty of finding a ride home, or being unable to return to work that makes the idea of sedation a problem. We have found the vast majority of patients are able to do amazingly well in our office without that type of sedation, and still have solutions for those who choose otherwise."
Dr. Rice has lived in the Inland Empire since 1985. She completed her M.S. in Periodontics in 2002, and has been caring for patients in Riverside ever since.
