  • Dr.
    Denine Rice
    Periodontal & Implant Surgeon

    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.'

    I have always wanted to work in a place that has high standards of care and treats each patient like family.  It is my privilege to be a part of Dr. Rice's team and to be able to contribute my knowledge and education to achieve the best care our patients deserve.  I have made it a personal goal to educate and motivate each and every one of my patients to improve their personal oral hygiene care.  Which in turn will help improve their health and quality of life.  I look forward to meeting you.  

    In his free time, Nick is very busy with his family consisting of his wonderful wife, his beautiful son and daughter and his Great Dane, Blue! He enjoys staying fit and was the winner of 'Wipeout' in 2012.  He has competed in the 'Escape from Alcatraz' swim three times! He is also an artist with many original pieces of drawings, paintings, and art that actually function as furniture.
