Recommendation for Dr. Ratto and Staff - March 2017

I can hardly say enough good things about my long time dentist, Michael P. Ratto, DDS, and his excellent staff. Over the more than 25 years of my association with Dr. Ratto as a patient, I have always received optimal dental care in every way. It may be difficult to believe, but I actually look forward to going to ‘the dentist’, because I know that I will receive outstanding professional care and a personally friendly welcome. It has been my pleasure to recommend Dr. Ratto to friends and family over the years because I can trust that whether it is a filling, routine cleaning, annual exam or even a difficult procedure, Dr. Ratto and his team are able and willing to deliver gentle, top quality care for positive long-term dental health. Thanks so much, ‘Dr. Mike’, Ali, Farah, Megan, Margaret, Cindy, Teresa for all the great care so far!

How long have you been a patient of Dr. Ratto's?

Have your concerns been addressed or have you been put at ease?

"I have always felt that my concerns were heard and considered."

What has Dr. Ratto done for you that sets him apart from other dentists you have seen?

"He has proven himself to be a professional that truly cares about the overall health of his patients and not just their smiles."

"The time Dr. Ratto has taken with each of us, individually, has not only made us feel valued but has resulted in the diagnosis of additional health concerns for three of my children. Additionally, Dr. Ratto raised concern regarding one of our ten-year-old twins, which led to the diagnosis of a hypo-active thyroid and a change in her heart murmur. We were able to detect her thyroid at an early age and begin treating it due to Dr. Ratto's thorough examination process and genuine care for his patients. Her twin sister was experiencing neck pain which Dr. Ratto also addressed and provided guidance. We feel our family has found an unexpected treasure since becoming patients of Dr. Ratto. We are comforted knowing we will not only be at ease during our visits and treatments but also that Dr. Ratto is considering as many facets of our health as possible and will guide us through any concerns he encounters."

"After 25 + years of exams, recently, while doing an annual exam Dr. Ratto noticed that my thyroid gland was enlarged and encouraged me to have it reviewed by my primary care physician. The resulting diagnoses was thyroid cancer. This may have gone untreated for years potentially becoming life threatening. Dr. Ratto literally saved my life! He is the only dentist that I have ever had that performs such complete exams."

Why did you choose Dr. Ratto?

"I chose Dr. Ratto for his reputation of excellence when treating cosmetic and aesthetic issues."

Do you feel Dr. Ratto's team members are helpful?

"Yes, without fail! We feel comforted knowing the staff will always provide me with the information we need to ensure our family stays on track with visits, referrals, and treatment options at future visits."
