We would like to share with you the beginnings of Ritter and Ramsey General and Cosmetic Dentistry. Many of our loyal and long term patients know how we started, yet for everyone else, its an opportunity to share.
Dr Rob Ritter grew up in Palm Beach County, went to college at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Fl. He attended and graduated the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine and graduated in 1994. He returned to Palm Beach County and began to practice dentistry as an associate in the south part of the county. He came an associate at a very well established practice in 1996 and shortly thereafter he bought the dental practice. Dr Ritter began his lifelong journey of education by taking CE courses that changed the direction, purpose and focus of his dental pursuits. He quickly changed the name of the practice to The Studio of Esthetic Dentistry to focus primarily on adhesive cosmetic dentistry, with a special emphasis on Smile Designs, Smile Makeovers, and Porcelain Veneers. The practice continued to grow and Dr Ritter became an acknowledged leader in dentistry, teaching other dentists to perform cosmetic dentistry at a higher level at PAC~live in San Francisco, Ca. Dr Ritter attended the Spear Education continuum in his early years, 7 courses over the period of 3 years, to proved an integrated approach to complex and long lasting cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
