Our Philosophy

Our unwavering belief in a patient-centered approach to dentistry is at the heart of Rice Dentistry. Unlike many practices, we don’t allow insurance companies to dictate the quality of care our patients receive. Instead, we believe that every individual has the right to the highest standard of dental care, regardless of their insurance coverage​​.

Our philosophy extends beyond mere treatments. We take the time to understand our patient’s needs and concerns, ensuring that we provide dental care that is not only effective but also compassionate. We view the dentist-patient relationship as a partnership where open communication and trust are the foundation for achieving and maintaining optimal dental health.

Our commitment to a patient-centered approach is reflected in every aspect of our practice, from our friendly and attentive staff to our state-of-the-art dental equipment and facilities. We continually strive to enhance our services and patient experience, ensuring that Rice Dentistry remains a trusted choice for dental care in the Irvine community and beyond.

Community Impact

At Rice Dentistry, our mission extends beyond the walls of our practice. We are deeply committed to positively impacting the lives of our patients and the wider community. Our involvement doesn’t stop at providing exceptional dental care; we actively engage in initiatives aimed at improving the lives of individuals both locally and globally​.

One of our noteworthy initiatives includes providing free dental care to individuals in need in Irvine through the CDA Cares event. Additionally, Dr. Taylor took a mission trip to Phoenix, where she provided dental implants to homeless veterans, showcasing our commitment to giving back to those who have served our country.

Our community service and outreach ethos reflects our holistic approach to dentistry—one that goes beyond treating teeth to touching lives. By investing our skills and resources in such meaningful initiatives, we hope to spread smiles among our patients, the community, and beyond.
