This is Dr. Rattner's wife posting. My fear of dentists is psychological because of my childhood experience. I never had novocaine for filings while growing up and I married a dentist! I had Becks clean my teeth for the first time because of hygienist rotations and she also did a full check up. I was nervous about trying a new hygienist but I was very impressed with her. She was thorough and very good at explaining what she was going to do and what I needed to do afterwards. Dr. Rattner only hires the best and now I've had all hygienists who are still with us and they all are GREAT. I may be biased but I feel Dr. Rattner is great at what he does. He loves dentistry and taking care of his patients and it shows. He is a perfectionist and won't settle for less. With covid-19 pandemic, our office made many changes to protect all patients and staff but we all are still receiving excellent care. Take from me, who still have a little dental phobia, you will be take care of and can't go wrong choosing Dr. Steven L Rattner, DDS, PA & Associates. He has two locations and two dentists and a periodontist working for the practice.
