What Our Patient's Say

Julie G

They are incredibly thorough and do a wonderful job of setting even the most fearful patient at ease! My husband dealt with pain for years and kept being told that there was nothing wrong. On his first visit at this office, the dentist noticed the problem without him having to say a word. We are both highly satisfied!! If you're looking for a dentist in the Ravenna area, I highly recommend this office!

Stephanie R

The office is very clean and the staff is knowledgeable, kind and gentle. Everyone goes above and beyond to make it a great experience. The doctors are honest and explain the treatment plan in detail. We have been patients here for 10 years and counting.

Jessica V

I love the staff here! Friendly, patient, and efficient. I also like that they don’t try to talk you into a bunch of extra! Would highly recommend!

Susan W

I would highly recommend Ravenna Dentistry. The staff is so kind and friendly and the dentist is calming and reassuring. My tooth had a very old root channel and was capped years ago, it abscess and was infected. Doctor Meeusen needed to pull my tooth, and was able to with no pain or complications. My fears turned into trusting and appreciating his professional abilities

Ariel M

I am absolutely amazed at how well my tooth extraction went. Doctor Dan and his staff are wonderful & friendly people. Doctor Dan walked me through step by step of what he was doing during the process and even more importantly I felt absolutely nothing during the extraction. By far the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. I also appreciate the fact that they got me in the same day after explaining how much pain I was in. These people really do care.
