Meet Dr. Raymond Ribitch:
Dentist in Mount Pleasant, MI
It is with my most sincere gratitude that I thank you for visiting our website. When I was a child I had a terrible experience going to the dentist. It was awful. Later in life, as a teenager, I had a terrible infection following removal of my wisdom teeth. To this day I still remember attending my Varsity football banquet at Mt. Pleasant High School and walking to the front of the room, my cheeks black and blue and bouncing up and down from the swelling. Some of those experiences you never forget.
Following graduation from Mt. Pleasant High School, I attended Alma College. I majored in biology, minored in chemistry and played 4 years of college baseball. It was at Alma where I met my wife, Kristy, who played softball and later obtained her Master’s degree as a Physician Assistant.
After 4 years at Alma College I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan and received my DDS degree at the University of Michigan (GOBLUE). Learning never stops, in my opinion. After graduation I continued my education with two prestigious learning centers, The Dawson Academy and The Kois Center. Both curriculums have taught me a great deal about comprehensive dentistry, about treating the whole person and not just the teeth. I have found the education invaluable, and has allowed our office to excel at esthetic and reconstructive dentistry.
Esthetic and reconstructive dentistry is an area of great interest to me. As a teenager I had a large space between my front teeth that bothered me. I was always self conscious about it. It’s why I enjoy helping patients find their true vision for themself through their smile. It has led me to pursue special credentialing with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to bring world class esthetic dentistry to mid-Michigan.
While I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children: Andrew, Matthew and Marie. I am passionate about playing golf and I love being in the kitchen and cooking.
Again, thank you for visiting our site. You can also find us on social media where I share recent cases we are working on. Everyone has a story, and through dentistry I hope we can help you tell yours.
