About Your Dentist

Jaclyn Ridder, DDS

“I absolutely love the daily challenges and rewards of practicing dentistry. I realize a large number of patients have some level of anxiety about dental treatment. My challenge – every day – is to make my patients feel comfortable throughout the entire process; not just the procedure itself, but also the planning of their treatment. I want my patients to feel involved in the education regarding their oral health and confident about the results we can achieve by working together toward a solution for their dental needs. I get tremendous satisfaction from helping my patients have a positive overall dental experience.”

My Mission

My mission as a dentist is to provide the best quality care to my patients – in all aspects – from the technology used at our office to the clinical techniques we practice daily, and further, to patient education and customer service. As a dentist, I believe every patient should leave my office with renewed confidence in their smile, knowing they have the tools needed to maintain their oral health well into the future.
