A Team Passionate About Prosthodontics
After three decades, Upstate Prosthodontics has grown with the Upstate community. As the practice has evolved and taken on new patients each year, one thing has stayed the same: a passion to deliver expert care and leading-edge dental solutions for all patients. In fact, the reason Upstate Prosthodontics has earned such stellar reputation is due in large part to the dedicated team Dr. Ridgell has assembled—a team that has been together since the 1990s. What that means for you, the patient, is a practice that has the experience, skill, and values you are looking for in a prosthodontic provider, with an atmosphere that will make you feel right at home.
