    What Our Patients Say

    “After being told the grim news that I had periodontal problems and was referred to Dr. Rick Rasmussen, I was naturally apprehensive about the coming procedures. It turned out to be one of the best medical recommendations and experiences I have had. Dr. Rasmussen and his staff are friendly, very professional, explained the procedures extremely well and answered my questions. The procedures were done with a minimum of pain, again with a gentleness and caring that was wonderful. I have wondered how anyone can sign up for the one day procedures - as it took me a lot longer to heal, mend and be outfitted with new posts and crowns. I suppose it comes down to: If you are going to do something major like this, you had better do it correctly. Excellent is all I can say about everything from the first appointment to the follow up care. I would recommend Dr. Rasmussen and his staff with no reservations.”
