What Our Patients Say About Us

Thank You Use

What a wonderful endodontist and staff! Personable, efficient, and knowledgeable!! 5 Stars.
– Mary


Just wanted to let you know my root canal was a non-event.  I so appreciate your skill and chairside manner and my super result!  Thanks so much for an optimal experience.

First class practice.  Couldn’t be improved.


I saw Dr. Ritter at Coastal Endodontics for my first root canal. From the get-go making the initial appointment was easy and checking in with the office staff was great! It’s always a good sign when office staff seem happy! Dr. Ritter’s assistant, Kristen (I hope I got that correct!) is wonderful! She put me at ease and was very kind and confident in what she was doing. Dr Ritter was equally as kind and clearly very good at what he does. The technology they utilize is amazing! The root canal itself was less painful then getting a cavity filled (although a bit longer overall which makes sense) and the nerve pain I was experiencing was gone the same day thanks to their efforts. I also returned a second time when my temporary filling fell out because I waited to long to have a crown placed. Again, everyone was kind and professional. I would and will recommend anyone to this practice! 


Thank you all for your kindness and professionalism this week.  It was so nice of you to work me in at the last minute and to feel that I was truly in good hands was a very comforting feeling.  From the initial conversation, to the actual visit and follow-up call, you all were so caring.  Thanks for everything!

To Dr. Ward and his amazing staff,
I can’t begin to express my gratitude toward the excellent care you gave my husband.  He was really nervous, but you make it relaxing and pain-free.  He was especially touched by the care call that Dr. Ward made that evening.  Thanks again for your kindness!

Thank You Megan

Thank you all so much for your kindness and compassion.  Thank you for working me in so quickly to ease my pain.  And a special thank you to Melissa for holding my hand and taking my mind off of the pain and nervousness.

Thank you for the terrific job you did on my root canal.  I had absolutely no pain or discomfort after the numbing wore off, and I never got the prescription you gave me. After several weeks of bothersome pain, I have relished being pain-free!  I also appreciated the skill and caring shown by your assistant.  I have been telling a lot of my friends about you.  Many thanks,


Dr. Ward and Staff,
Thank you so much for your care for me during my recent root canal.  I very much appreciate you and your staff working overtime to help me.  You have a great group of people working with you, from the ladies at the front desk to assistants. You ALL made a very unpleasant situation much, much better.  I want you all to know how much I appreciated you.

Thank You Deanna

Dr. Ward and Staff, I can’t thank you enough for getting me out my pain.  Your staff was so nice.  They were very informative.  They helped ease my nervousness.  Your assistant was great.  She even held my hand.  When it was over, I was surprised how painless the procedure was.  Not nearly as bad as all those stories you hear.  Thank you again for fitting me in on the same day and taking such great care of me!  I am telling everyone how fantastic you and your staff are!!

I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to each one of you. I was nervous coming in for my root canal & each of you were so kind, comforting, & patient, making my visit the best it could be. The after hours call was such a pleasant surprise & really let me know how much you care about each patient. Thank you. You make an awesome team & I will highly recommend you to anyone in need of a root canal. Much appreciation,

I am grateful for your time this week.  Thanks so much for the peace-of-mind you’ve given me regarding my tooth.  


Just got root canal today by Dr.Ritter, He was wonderful, patient and painless and I was nervous. No need to be nervous, a big huge thank you to Dr. Ritter and his assistant Kristen, as a matter of fact the whole staff is extremely nice. 2 years ago also had a root canal by Dr. Ward who is also a great endodontist.. If you need a root canal…go here.


Thank You Russ

Just wanted to say thank you so much for taking care of me again!  It was such a relief to be out of pain.  You and your staff have been so kind.  I really appreciated it so much!

Dr. Ward,
Thank you and all of your staff for a very pleasant visit to the dentist. I thought a root canal was the worst thing you could have done by a dentist. All of my worries were unfounded. Thanks again,

Dr. Ward,
I want to thank you for seeing me so promptly on a same-day basis for my root canal and for doing such a great job.

Dear Dr. Ward-
