Healthy Smiles, Happy Patients

Shoreline hit it out of the park today. They got me in quickly after I had to cancel my scheduled appointment because of work. I have super sensitive teeth and Adrienne did an amazing job. Absolutely no pain! We have 8 family members that are clients of this outstanding dental practice. Thank you again Shoreline!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They were kind and caring during my exam and cleaning. As a new patient, I appreciate that Dr. Ritzau listened and provided a positive, kind, and caring plan for my dental needs. All of the staff listened to my concerns about my dental needs and made me feel positive about what I needed to do to improve my dental health. Thank you for a great dental experience.

I'm very impressed with the level of care provided by all team members at Shoreline. The front desk staff is always welcoming and informative. The dental assistants are exceptional, and I trust their care. Hygienists are careful, detail oriented and great educators. And Dr. Ritzau is not only technically brilliant, you get a sense that she enjoys the artistry of dentistry too. This is a great place to get great care.

My experience at Shoreline dental was so informative and so generous. The staff gave me clear information and was very welcoming. That is exactly what I think there should be more of at an office. I would highly recommend their office to anyone who is looking. Thank you so much to all the staff and I look forward to going back.
