I don't think he spends enough time getting to know his patients. He kind of talks to you like you're "just another mouth". I've got very sensitive gums and the hygeinists were too rough most of the time.
CONS: Insensitive, hygeinists too rough
My mother went to Dr Rips and while she had some pain he did his best to take it away. He knows what he is doing and is a very good dentist. He accepts most insurances and will even work with you on the co pays.4
