Are you looking for a gentle, high-quality dentist in Springfield, IL? Choosing a dentist is a big decision because your healthcare providers play a big role in your overall health. Just like choosing a doctor, choosing a dentist can be confusing because there are so many options and you may not know which questions to ask.

Open Communication

Having good communication with your dentist is important. You should feel like you can ask questions and express concerns when it comes to your oral health. Your dentist should listen intently and answer each of your questions until you fully understand your conditions and treatment options.

Feeling welcome in the office is essential. The support staff should be friendly and compassionate, welcoming you and helping you to schedule appointments and follow-up with your dental insurance.

Compassionate and Gentle Care

Dr. Ruggless became a dentist because he has a passion for helping others. His compassion and gentle treatment style makes our patients feel comfortable and anxiety free.

Dentistry can be painless! We never want you feel discomfort during treatment and take the necessary precautions to ensure comfort.

Consultations and Patient Education

We want our patients to fully understand their conditions, the consequences of non-treatment, and all of your treatment options. We often schedule consultations to go over your treatment plan and discuss how you would like to proceed to improve your oral health. This is dedicated time for you and Dr. Ruggless. You can ask questions, we will share pictures, diagnoses, and all of your options to support your smile. We love educating patients and believe that knowledge is the best way to make good decisions about the future of your oral health.
