Review №1

Aside from being and of the kindest people you will ever meet (Ive been seeing Dr. Ken since I got my first tooth), they have also taken extraordinary and much appreciated measures to keep their office staff and patients safe during the pandemic. Aside from the temp, blood oxygen level, symptom and travel history screening outside the office, they have gone above and beyond by installing air purifiers in every treatment room, using double (maybe triple?) masks and a face shield while with patients, and changing outer scrubs between each patient. I cant say enough about this staff and the doctors, they really are an amazing group!

I will say, my first visit which was a cleaning was very pleasant. The hygienist was very nice and did a great job. I was told by the hygienist the 3 small cavities I had were in between the teeth and weren’t a big deal since I’ve had them since I was a kid. Then the dentist came in and of course says ya we should definitely take care of those. Next visit, in the office for 40 minutes since they were such small fillings. Then I receive a bill in the mail totaling 945.00 for the second visit. Of course my insurance didn’t cover all of it so now I’m left with a huge bill for fillings that I’ve had forever and didn’t need taken care of right away. All this place cares about is making money. I can’t comprehend how they have such good reviews. If your insurance isn’t great, stay away.

When our Mom moved to Spring Village of Stratford (formerly Atria) we decided on Ravine Family Dental for ease of proximity, . From the first day we walked in we were treated like family. Every person we have spoken to, either on the phone or in person, is kind and patient. The staff is incredibly gracious and helpful. Mom is so happy with her medical staff and Front Office staff. You will be so happy to be with these amazing professionals. Thank you, all of you, for your compassion and dedication. We appreciate you all.

About 4 years ago I met Dustin. I found him to be fun, down to earth and honest. I am very particular about who I see as my health care professionals and at the time I was seeing a well known dentist who had published several books. He instilled confidence in me that I was receiving the best dental treatment possible. When I discovered Dustin was a dentists I was intrigued but happy with the treatment I was currently receiving. However I ended up speaking with Dustin about his practice and quickly found that he was well aware of and using all the cutting edge technology in his practice. Long story short I ended up giving him a shot. He took more time explaining the composites and processes involved then my former dentist. And best of all he made sure I felt totally comfortable with everything before we moved forward. I have now been there for three years and recommend him to all my friends. If you are new to the area or looking for the best look no further. Make your appointment now, you wont regret it.

Dr. Rabine Family Dentistry provides exceptional care for each and every patient. From fillings, to root canals, to cleanings Ive experienced it all here. They always make me feel comfortable, theyre like a second family to me. I HIGHLY recommend this office to everyone. Dr. Rabine is always working with his patients to accommodate their needs and to make sure every experience is pleasant. I wouldnt go anywhere else or trust anyone else with my teeth besides this group!!!!

My cleaning appointment was with Michelle. It was one of the best experiences I have had when going to the dentist. Both Michelle and Dr. Racine are noticeably professional, knowledgeable, and they truly listen to the patient. Michelle goes out of her way to give you a thorough cleaning while making you as comfortable as possible. My only regret is that I wish I had discovered them sooner! An added bonus is that the office is located in a very convenient strip shopping center, with plenty of parking.

Review №11

I have been a patient here for many years and i love the people especially my sister-in-law Kerri who has been cleaning my teeth my entire life. Everyone that works here are very friendly,professional, and accommodating. They all make me feel very comfortable. My husband and children also come as well. I feel that Dr Rabine has done a great job taking over the practice. We will continue to come here and I would recommend Dr Rabine and staff to anyone who is looking for a dentist. Thanks to the entire staff for the great job that you all do.

Review №12

I highly recommend Dr Rabine! My daughters and I have had all of our dental work by him. Cavities, crowns and bonding, his work is incredible. He has amazing bed side manners and makes parents and children feel at ease immediately. His staff is friendly, helpful and patients always come first.

Review №13

His work is impeccable! I am so pleased. The staff are friendly and wonderful. Dr. Rabine is well rounded and has a great sense of humor on top of being a true professional. Im very happy to have had a friend refer me.

Review №14

I was always a person who absolutely hated going to the dentist-Dr Rabine and his staff have completely changed that! They are the absolute NICEST people you will ever meet, so caring and thoughtful. I have had fillings, crowns and cleanings done by Dr Rabine, all were painless and smooth. I am beyond happy with his work and his staff is awesome. I had to call numerous times to change an appointment and no one ever gave me any trouble-they were understanding and helped me to find a date and time that would work. My 3 year old son has had two cleanings and loves it here! I would highly recommend Dr Rabine to anyone seeking a dentist for any reason-a great experience will be had :)

Review №15

Dr. Rabine and his staff are the best! Dr. Rabine is very friendly and automatically makes you feel comfortable. He goes over everything with you and I feel that I can ask him lots of questions about my dental care. It is a fun and relaxed atmosphere- my hygienist Kim is wonderful and I actually look forward to seeing the staff when I have my appointment. I have been going there for about five years and everything always goes smoothly, from the cleaning to x–rays to getting molds taken. The office is extremely professional and super clean. If you’re worried about going to the dentist, you definitely don’t need to be with Dr. Rabine and his staff. I highly recommend them!

Review №16

Dr. Rabine is hands down the best dentist I have ever had. I typically dread going to the dentist, but here I leave every time feeling more and more comfortable and not fearing the next visit. Everyone is friendly and the visit goes quick and painlessly (unlike other dentists I have been to). I highly recommend him!

Review №17

Dr. Rabine is a very compassionate and talented dentist. I have been treated by him for over 4 years. He has always been very caring and flexible with the appointment hours. The staff is one of the best I have ever encountered. Highly recommend them!!!

Review №18

My family has been going to this practice for A LONG time....The office staff is wonderful, the hygienists are awesome and Dr. Rabine is fantastic. My youngest is a very apprehensive patient. The first few times she came in for an appointment she wouldnt even open her mouth. Now nearly 5 years later when she comes in for an occasional cavity Dr. Rabine can do the filling with out sleepy juice...aka Novocaine. I always recommend this practice when anyone is in need of dentist!! Love them all!!!

Review №19

This is absolutely great family dental clinic. Staff is wonderful and friendly. Hygienist Aaron did great work for my first visit and Dr. Rabine was also very helpful. They made me very comfortable and provided all the required information.

Review №20

This was the absolute best dental experience Ive ever had, Ive had many! Dr. Dustin F Rabine and his staff are very welcoming, kind and courteous. They really put me at ease and got me too relax, being that I needed 5 teeth extracted. I cant say enough about Dr. Rabine. Hes a PRO. He really knows what he doing, hes gentle yet thorough. He even took time to call me that same night to make sure I was ok. Me being in sales, I really appreciated that. Now its the day after the day I was dreading. I must say. I cant believe that Im really not in pain. Thank God!! Thank you Doc!! Dr Rabine and his Magic hands. This guy is talented. Will definitely be recommending him!!

Review №21

Dustin Rabine is amazing with my children (and myself) with all of our needs ranging from simple to complex. I have a son on the spectrum, and all my kids have behavioral challenges of one kind or another, but Dr Rabine is so patient and compassionate with all of them. We have never had dentist visits feel so smooth and manageable.

Review №22

Dustin F. Rabine Family Dentistry is extremely welcoming to my needs and my families needs. I came in nervous due to many negative experiences and walked out of Rabine Dentistry with a positive outlook. Dr. Rabine has literally transformed my smile and I cant thank him enough for that. If you are looking for a warm, kind, and friendly dentist with a fantastic staff this is the place for you. My wife, children, parents, and brother are now all patients and they all feel the same way that I do!

Review №23

It has been a long time since I have been to the Dentist... And I was super nervous!!! Dr Rabine, his office staff and his dental hygienist Tammy were BEYOND wonderful! They were calming and pleasant, explained what they were doing at all times and reduced my anxiety 100%. I never write reviews but dentists get a bad reputation and Dr.Rabine is truly wonderful! My entire family will be going to this office from now on!!! The office was super clean and neat, staff was friendly and what I loved most was that I didnt have to wait....i was actually seen on time!!! You dont get that in most drs offices!!!! Would recommend Dr. Rabine and his team (esp Tammy!) To all my friends and family!!!!

Review №24

The entire staff is willing to address any of the queries you may have.....and they are always smiling.One staff member I met 2 years ago remembered me, making me feel like I was visiting family.Dr. Rabine and staff are truly amazing, and make a trip to the dentist enjoyable.

Review №25

I have never been to a more comforting and caring office for dental care! Dr. Rabine is extremely personable and knowledgeable and takes great care of his patients. His hygienists are so warm and friendly I actually look forward to my cleaning appointments! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Rabine to my family and friends :)

Review №26

I am a new patient and would not go anywhere else! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. Im an anxious dental patient and the staff immediately put me at ease, making sure I was comfortable throughout my exam. I would highly recommend this office to everyone! Instead of dreading my visit, Im looking forward to it!

Review №27

My wife and I love going to Dr. Rabines office. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and Dr. Rabine really takes his time and explains all of the treatment options, which is very comforting. My mother drove over an hour to meet with Dr. Rabine and found that another dentist had recommended a much more invasive procedure that she didnt need. We are very happy with the care weve received.

Review №28

Dustin his team create a warm and welcoming environment from the second you walk in the door! Dustin is easy to talk to and makes you comfortable throughout your appointment. I highly suggest checking them out!

Review №31

My trust in Dustin F. Rabines Family Dentistry traces back more than 10 years. It was no surprise to me, when I became a patient and walked into the office how welcoming and friendly the staff were. The environment is immaculate, bright and clean from beginning in the waiting area throughout the entire office. The family portraits on the walls add a personal touch and a ton of personality to what Dr. Rabine is all about. The dental care performed by the dental hygienists and Dr. Rabine himself is extraordinary. They are very caring and make you feel very comfortable. If you need to reach Dr. Rabine due to a tooth problem or a question regarding your care he makes sure he returns your call in a timely manner. My nieces, brother and sister in law are also patients of Dr. Rabine, I wouldnt refer my family anywhere else.

Review №32

By far the most friendly and professional office! Everyone from the receptionists, hygienists, to Dr. Rabine the level of service is phenomenal. They are kind, caring and really take the time to get to know their patients. Its like going back to visit family every time!

Review №33

Dr Rabine is the best dentist ever with an equally amazing staff. Each and every person in that office is so kind, I cant say enough good things. Weve had many good experiences but the one that stands out most, is recently our daughter had an injury to her tooth. He called us back immediately at 7pm on a Sunday evening and scheduled us to come in first thing Monday morning. And when I text him with more questions at 10pm (not even expecting an answer that night) he called me to answer questions and offer reassurance. Despite our daughter not having insurance yet he still saw her at no charge. In our short time of being patients here I could probably share at least 5 more exceptional experiences. Aside from the great atmosphere, Dr Rabine and his team are very good at what they do. Youll be in good hands!

Review №34

Convenient location & awesome staff. My hygienist Michele does a great job. Happy I switched to this office!

Review №35

Excellent across the board from the support staff to the professionals. Friendly environment, clean and comfortable facilities, and excellent professional services. Highly recommend to people looking for a dentist for themselves and their families.

Review №36

Dr. Rabine and his staff are simply amazing! The atmosphere is great from the second you walk in! The staff is very knowledgeable and always willing to do anything for you to make sure you have nothing but the best experience !

Review №37

My family and I have come to this office for years and they’re always fast and friendly. Rabine is a great dentist and his staff are always very friendly

Review №38

I have been going to this office since i was a little girl when Dr. Rothrock was the dentist. When i heard he was leaving i was very hesitant to stay, but when introduced to Dr. Rabine, he was very welcoming and professional. I have been going to him ever since and i honestly do not trust anyone else with my teeth. He takes his time, makes sure Im comfortable, explains everything in depth and makes me feel totally at ease every time Im there. He does outstanding work and i would highly recommend him to anyone (even to those who fear the dentist because he will definitely change your perspective on that). The office staff (hygienists and receptionists) are also equally as amazing. They are extremely friendly from the moment you walk in to the time you leave. Between the clean, pleasant atmosphere to the phenomenal dental care i cannot say enough great things about this dental office and staff.

Review №39

I had a great experience at Dr. Rabines office. The staff and the Doctor where tremendous. I finally found a dentist that I like going to never thought that would happen !!

Review №40

Dr. Rabine is the best!!! I have a fear of dentists but I knew that I needed to go. So I bit the bullet and went. He listened to all my fears (boring) and then asked me what he could do to make me feel more comfortable. One of the things was taking breaks frequently because I have a bad jaw, he was more then accommodating.His staff is also very welcoming and friendly too.

Review №41

I love the staff. Dr. Rabine does a wonderful job. I do think, however, that the cost of my last filling was a bit much. I compared with a friend who had similar work done at half the price.

Review №42

Best dentist Ive ever had. When you book a 3 oclock appointment he sees you at 3 oclock!!! Very professional and friendly staff as well.

Review №43

Honestly couldnt ask for a better dentist. Friendly staff, personable experience, and top-notch dentistry. Dr. Rabine makes going to the dentist fun and easy!

Review №44

Hygenist, Nicole, does THE BEST thorough cleaning! No more plaque or stains on these old teeth!

Review №45

My first experience at Family Dentistry was for an annual cleaning and x-rays. My hygienest Jenelle was very thorough, yet my time in the chair seemed to fly by! We laughed a lot. At the end of the visit Dr. Rabine spoke to me personally. I never once felt rushed, (unusual for an end-of-the-day appointment.) The entire staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped inside the door. I highly recomend this practice for your dental needs.

Review №46

Clean, friendly and know what they are doing!The entire family goess there now and its been great. Recommend to everyone.
