A few of our SERVICES and PROCEDURES
DENTAL CROWNS (CAPS)
If a tooth is severely decayed, broken or missing, you may need a dental crown or a bridge.
If you have missing, or extensively decayed teeth, a dental implant may be your best solution.
If you have a missing tooth, other teeth may shift out of place. A dental bridge may be a good choice for you.
EXAMS & CLEANING
Our hygienists are very experienced and use gentle techniques to give you excellent cleanings.
Bonding or Veneers…. What is the difference? Come in today to see which procedure is right for you!
I’ve been going to Dr. Riddle for a little over 30 years now. I was one of his first patients when he purchased his office building in Scott City, MO. and have only gone to one other dentist during that time. I moved and hour and a half away so I went to a dentist that was closer to me. That was the last time that happened. I quickly decided that it was in my best interest to drive the hour and a half twice a year to see Dr. Riddle.
During those 30 years, I had 2 beautiful daughters that I brought to Dr. Riddle as soon as they were old enough to sit in the exam chair. It’s very important to get a sealant put on their little teeth to prevent cavities. Now, they bring their babies to him. They each have at least a 2 hour drive to get to him but they don’t mind at all.
Dr. Riddle gave me a beautiful bright smile with Veneers and Zoom Whitening. I couldn’t be happier!
