“Can’t say enough about this dentist office. They really know how to work with the kids and make them feel comfortable.”

 

 


"If you are looking for an orthodontist who is as professional and easygoing as he is perfectionistic, then Dr. Joseph Rideau is your man!! He is now working with our second kid, and we continue to be impressed with how he bends over backwards to make the whole orthodontic experience as painless as possible."

 


“This was our first time at the office and my son’s first dentist appointment ever. The staff and Dr. Fridgen all exceeded my expectations. I am very happy I found you guys on Yelp and will definitely return. Would recommend to anyone!”

“Thank you so much for all your help with my daughter! She was referred by another dentist because of her difficulty with the dentist. She started with Dr. Fridgen a few years ago and has seen almost every dentist in the office. She went from crying about going to the dentist to being truly excited about being there! She got so many compliments about how good she was and how still she sat and I think that was all the work of your office, not me. You helped her be that comfortable! Thank you so much! What a difference in my daughter and a relief to me!”

“Love Dr. Fridgen and his staff. All friendly and great with the kids!”

 

 


5/5

“When our 15-year-old daughter’s teeth migrated a little (from not wearing her retainer as much as she should have!!) he insisted on putting the braces back on for a couple months to get the teeth just right. When he saw the look of disappointment on her adolescent face, he opted to put the braces on the inside, out of view. He not only affirmed for my daughter the validity of her concern, he also offered a workable solution, even though it created more hassle for himself. To me, this was completely over the top!! Not only that, but he and his staff are VERY flexible about payment terms, working with insurance, etc. And their innovative use of technology is really supportive.... I opted in to get email and text reminders of appointments (which have saved me more than once!). I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Rideau and his staff. They all have all been a joy to deal with.”

“We love Pediatric Dentistry so much that when we moved, we still come back to them. Their service is over and beyond what you would want and expect. The office is clean and very modern, with much entertainment for the kids. I love the themes they have going on all the time. It is the best experience for any kid going to the dentist and for us parents; we feel good about getting the best for our children. The dental assistants and the doctors CARE and it truly shows.”

“Dr. Rideau does a wonderful job of easing patients into braces: waiting until the teeth are ready, and then staging the process to minimize discomfort. He is very friendly, easygoing, and highly professional. My three children have all been patients, with spectacular results. They enjoyed the appointments (truly!) because the staff is all so friendly and kind. He described to my kids exactly what he would be doing and why, and was very accurate with regard to the length of treatment. All three of my kids were in and out within two years. I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rideau’s practice. Very highly recommended!!”

 

 


“All three of my kids love your office! And I appreciate how kind and gentle everyone is, along with being professional as well. No one is pushy or harsh if a child is fearful or uncertain. Your patience is amazing. Thanks for being a safe place! I know my kids are in good hands with you.”

“Dr. Fridgen and his whole staff are great. They are all friendly, sensitive, and show genuine concern for the patients. My son LOVES going for his checkups!”

 

 


5/5

“Despite my generally negative attitude coming into the process, Dr. Rideau charmed me with his efficiency, cleanliness, and reliability. In fact, now as I near the end of my braces experience, he has even shortened my time in braces by a whole month (with short notice) so that I won’t have to have braces for my senior pictures. Besides the fact that I would recommend this office to any teens who want to get in and out as to achieve as few months in braces as possible, I would also recommend Dr. Rideau’s office to any athletes such as myself who can come in at any time for Dr. Rideau to fix busted brackets, etc. “Both my sister and I can attest to the general excellence of Dr. Rideau’s office, from the friendly ambiance to the convenient text and email reminders. Now, as a senior in high school, I can say that I actually enjoy going to the orthodontist and will have a bittersweet separation from my braces. Truly a great service!”

“Dr. Rideau and his team are very caring and professional. We were immediately put at ease as Dr. Rideau explained in ‚Äč‘layman terms’ what treatment my daughter would need and why, and also what her role would be in a successful outcome. The office is clean, well-run, and has state-of-the-art equipment designed for patient comfort. Dr. Rideau was on time, we never felt rushed, and the follow-up appointments (and the lost retainer appointment) were handled with the same professionalism. I only wish that all dental/medical experiences could be this great!”

 

 


“Always a terrific experience; my kids like going to the dentist! As parents, we feel well-informed and comfortable.”

“This is not just for today but all times we come to visit. We are treated with patience and respect. The staff is most courteous and the girls go out of their way to make things as comfortable as possible for my kids. The gal who helped us today even went and asked the insurance lady if a particular X-ray was covered.... She did not have to do that, but went the extra mile. Thanks for that! We are very happy with the results we have received thus far and always try to refer to Dr. Ligh and Rideau to people who ask. Thanks for the great service and fantastic bedside manner.”

 


5/5

“Our entire experience with Dr. Rideau has been outstanding! From the first day of photos of my daughter’s less-then-perfect smile, to the day her braces were removed to reveal an incredible smile, we were treated with respect and professional courtesy. Add to that a sense of caring and a smiling, happy staff (especially Melody!); my daughter and I actually looked forward to her appointments! “Dr. Rideau was careful to explain fully what was being done inside my daughter’s mouth, and he and his staff were encouraging and supportive the whole time, making the experience pleasant. I would highly recommend Dr. Rideau to any parent who is considering orthodontic work for their children. Excellent all around!”

 


5/5

“We are so pleased with the orthodontic care that our daughter has received from Dr. Rideau. He has made sure that we understand each part of the process and is always willing to answer any questions we might have. My daughter has always felt very comfortable with Dr. Rideau as well as the rest of his staff. I am so happy with my daughter’s results, that I will be using Dr. Rideau for my own orthodontic work. Highly recommend!”

 

 


5/5

“My kids really appreciated this, as it was much more comfortable for them than some of their classmates who were treated elsewhere. I very highly recommend Dr. Rideau for your family’s orthodontic needs.”
