Dr. Ruof is AMAZING!. I went to Dr. Ruof for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable going to the dentist actually was. Instead of feeling like I was going to an irritating doctor's appointment, she instantly made me feel at home and answered all of my questions with sincere kindness. Besides her patience, friendliness, and gentleness as a dentist, her depth of knowledge and understanding in her field is astounding. She took the time to explain several questions and concerns I had using pictures, models, and a mirror. I was really impressed with how easily she was able to break down complicated information in a way that was digestible for someone who is not in her field to understand. As part of my first visit, I had a number of x-rays done. I explained that I had two teeth that were more sensitive than normal and once the x-rays were done, she enlarged those teeth on a computer screen for me to see. She carefully examined the sensitive teeth and described exactly what was causing the sensitivity. To this day, I think about her explanation and try my best to follow her advice with careful soft brushing. I would strongly recommend Dr. Ruof to anyone in need of a kind, intelligent, and extremely thorough dentist. I know I will continue seeing her for years to come!
