“For many years I ignored going to the dentist simply because I did not have dental insurance and also I had moved to an unfamiliar area. Over the course of time I had 3 crowns which I previously had done several years back fall out. I finally got a good job with good pay but still no dental insurance so I started saving my money so I could get my crowns redone as it is very expensive to have dental work done. I went to a dentist and they ended up giving me a very expensive treatment plan way over my budget. I really felt like all they cared about was money and not me. So I decided to get a second opinion. I was looking at finding a dentist who really cares about their patients and who would make me feel comfortable and not judged for failing to see a dentist in 12 years. So I made an appointment with Dr. Rudisill. To my surprise my whole experience there was wonderful. Dr R was very sympathetic to me and my needs and really was there for me at a time when my self esteem was compromised as a result of an imperfect smile. He made me feel very comfortable and gave me options. I am happy to say that I am very happy with the outcome. I will need more work done in the future and I will be going back. I highly recommend Dr R to anyone who is apprehensive about going to the dentist like I was. His staff is terrific and very professional and caring. They all make you feel at home.”

“For many years I simply ignored the thought of going to the dentist every time it would cross my mind. We had moved several times and I had had less than ideal experiences with the dental practices that we had found around the country. I had a lot of work done years ago and I let that thought comfort me even though I knew that I needed to go to the dentist. Unlike paying my taxes, there is not penalty for not going to the dentist. Then one day I saw a little bumper sticker…probably on a dentist’s car. It said “Ignore your teeth, and they’ll go away quietly.” I thought about that and gathered up my courage to go visit Dr. Rudisill. Rhonda was easy to work with and Kim was kind and gently. I knew immediately that I had entered a NO JUDGMENT ZONE! That is important when you had not been to the dentist for a long time. I was quite honestly afraid of what he would find and of being scolded. To my surprise, I was not scolded nor did Dr. R try to sell me on products and services that I didn’t need as I had experienced before in other place. To tell the truth, I look forward to appointments now and even though I have had a lot of work done I don’t have any anxiety about the possibility of having more done as I age. My ace is the hole is Sedation Dentistry and that would be my choice for more than a filling or two. Call me a dental wimp but this is the best thing that has come along since dentistry! Thanks Dr R for being there for me!”
