Dr. Ricks' Bio

"I have a passion for dentistry and I enjoy improving other people's lives. I strive to be the best practitioner I can be. As my patient, your health and well-being are my utmost concern.

I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. After completing dental school I served for four years as a Dental Officer in the United States Navy. Most recently I have been practicing in rural Eastern Washington. I continue to improve my skills by taking continuing education courses, and I am up to date on current dental practices and technology. I have extensive experience in all aspects of general dentistry including oral surgery, root canal therapy, and cosmetic dentistry.

I spent the majority of my youth in Colorado, where I grew to love the outdoors. Trail running, backpacking, cycling, and marathoning are some of my favorite outdoor activities. My wife, Kandis, and I have been married for 18 years. We have two children, Hayden and Brinley. My family and I are excited to practice and make our home in Polson, MT."

As an experienced dentist based in Polson MT. Your dental health and well-being are my utmost concern.
