I was having an issue with my tooth that another dentist had worked on recently. He had done a root canal and crown and assured me xrays were ok. It was still painful and the other dentist insisted it was okay and that I should wait…I then went to Dr Ruintan for a second opinion- he diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes. The root canal was incorrectly finished and the crown was incorrectly placed. Though not on his schedule, Dr Ruintan worked overtime on me on the same day along with his wonderful staff for over 3 hours and redid the root canal, removed the old crown – and placed a temporary one. I walked out of the clinic with no pain. I thought it was the anesthesia but still no pain 4 days later. Dr Ruintan is not just a dentist- he is a proficient, caring healer with the highest work ethic guided by his humanity and superior morality. I highly recommend him, because there is no one I know who is more caring and genuine and skilled. Thank you to everyone at Desert Dental- from the reception staff to the dental assistants and hygienists; you are truly family!

This is great Dentist and staff! I appreciate the straight forward diagnosis without the lecture. No pain. No stress. No pressure. Awesome example of traditional bedside manner that we’ve all heard about; but rarely witness.

Dr. Ruintan has been my dentist for many years now. He is honest, amazing, and overall a fantastic person. His dental work is second to none. Dr. Ruintan ALWAYS heals my teeth and keeps me out of pain. I recommend him to everyone I know who may need a great trust worthy dentist.

As I hadn’t been to the dentist for an embarrassingly long time, I was a bit nervous for my visit. I knew I needed a good cleaning and some dental work done. The hygienist was amazing! She did a great job. As expected, I did have to get some work done. I never had a cavity filled before so I didn’t know what to expect, but just like my cleaning, it went really well. I’m so happy I found this place!

The doctor and staff are very patient and welcoming. The doctor has a great knowledge about his job and make you informed about all of aspects of your tooth problem in terms of cost and technical process. I greatly recommend their team.

I can’t Express my gratitude!!! I was in the worst pain I’ve ever been in and I told that to the receptionist after calling 9 dentist they were the only one that made arrangements to see me right away, The entire staff was professional the doctor was amazing, price was more then fair, I can go on but if your looks for a dentist in a pinch or for long-term Look no further you’ve found the best in my opinion

Dr Ruintan embodies a professional who truly loves his work. His care, compassion and meticulous attention to his patients is indeed a very rare quality. Dr Ruintan and his exceptional staff make you feel at home, and have truly taken dental care to another level. If you are looking for a dentist who has YOUR optimal care in mind, make an appointment with Dr Ruintan.

Safety procedures were apparent and appropriate immediately when I walked into the office yesterday at 2pm. There were patients who arrived and left, but I was alone with the dental staff for each step in the exam and procedure. Each step was explained as it happened as well as suggestions to enhance my dental routine. Overall it felt great to have my teeth cleaned and to get back to regular appointments. Appreciated the staff and all their attention to being safe as well as great dental care . Online access for paperwork, appt. reminders, and insurance verification were all easy to complete. Thank you!

Rozita G. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Extremely happy with the care I received for my girls. The staff is very friendly. The hygienist did an excellent job and was so patient with her pediatric patients. She taught them how to properly use the tooth brush to make sure it is effective. Dr Ruintan is very friendly, honest and knowledgeable. He always gives honest opinion about the care plan and his positive attitude make my girls feel comfortable and relaxed at their dental office. I would highly recommend him and his office. Thank you Dr Ruintan for your great service.

THE MOST gentle and attentive Dentist I have ever been seen by. I’ve been a Patient of Dr. Ruintan’s since my mid teens and cannot ever imagine switching dentists. I live in California now and still continue to travel to AZ for my dental visits. Exceptional care, exceptional staff, exceptional dentistry.

I am a dentist so I know how good this office is. I recently had an opportunity to change dentists due to retirement of my last dentist. I am a specialist in oral surgery so I had patients from many dentists come into my office. I had seen the quality of dental care provided by Dr. Ruintan previously. I saw him under because of a need for a very painful tooth. He was excellent with his diagnosis and treatment. My care was superb and with no discomfort. I am very happy to recommend my family and anyone to Dr. Ruintan.

Dr Ruintan is a fabulous dentist! I’ve been a patient for the last 13 years (since I moved here,) and he has always taken care of me! I typically need only cleanings and x rays, but this time needed some extra help. He fit me right in and is putting me at the top of his list so that I’m not in pain. He is a very knowledgeable, caring dentist and I trust him fully.

Dr. Ruintan has been our family dentist for many, many years. Everyone, kids included, has had a very positive experience. The staff are friendly and highly competent. Dr. Ruintan personally examines each patient. The office culture is equally positive: Dr. Ruintan is always joking with his staff and patients, and gives as good as he gets! Best of all, Dr. Ruintan cares: my mother had an issue over the weekend and was in severe pain. Immediately after receiving my call, Dr. Ruintan opened the office and treated my mom. I will always be grateful for that.

Janayna and Betty are both so kind and excellent at what they do. They know how to make your visit feel like a walk in the park. I truly appreciate Desert Dental and the care they provide to their patients.

We consider them family as they all take the time and care with your dental needs as if it was one of their own family members.  always welcomes you with a friendly warm smile and also makes sure when you leave she is on top of anything that needs to be reviewed. his dental assistant is always on her A game and makes you feel at ease.  Annette the dental hygienist is truly loves what she does and you can tell that by her caring way of her cleaning your teeth. Dr.Ruintan always has his patients needs first before anything!!!!

Dr. Ruintan has been our dentist for several years.  He and his staff are exceptional and have a true “family dentistry ” ethic.  You don’t come in for a cleaning and have to sit through lengthy upsell efforts to get you to purchase cosmetic dentistry services (like so many dentists).  Their office is focused in providing good care – not just taking your dollar.  I had a dental emergency I was worried about and Dr. Ruintan bent over backwards to accommodate me the same day which was a huge relief to me. Actually they fit me in within a few hours!  I had been holding off on a dental visit due to Covid but their sanitation processes and precautions were outstanding.   Highly recommend!

Negin M. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Ruintan for nearly 19 years. He is a perfectionist in his field and he always insures that a procedure is done exactly right.   The whole team has been very caring and understanding towards my children during our visits. I know it doesn’t come any better than that.

Kristen W. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is so awesome!!! I was in town for the holiday & had a crown come out on my drive in. My mom insisted I call her dentist, Dr. Ruintan & they got me right in! He was so helpful & made sure I felt comfortable with everything he was doing because I’m pregnant. If I lived in AZ this office would definitely be my dentist office!!

Karen K. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Have been going to Dr. Ruintan for many years since we moved to the neighborhood, very pleasant, great work and not much wait time when you have an appointment and when you have an emergency he will do his best to accommodate you. Highly recommend
