My daughter had the BEST experience! She can’t wait to go back and I am so glad I brought her their for a second opinion because my first opinion qanted 500.00 for a panel of xrays that Dr. Rinsinger included in the visit! I was also referred by two of my friends so I knew he was already great! Really “best experience ever” – my daughter’s words.

I waited forever to get my teeth aligned and when COVID hit, and I was under a mask 24/7 I decided to finally do it! I am so happy with the decision and being taken care of my Dr. Risinger and his excellent staff! This is a well oiled machine – they are perfect at what they do and you always feel like you are in excellent hands! Very efficient too. I ended up with invisalign and I couldn’t be happier with the results. In less than 6 months my teeth were visibly straighter!!

Absolutely I would recommend this office again and again! The staff were amazing! I was visiting from out of town and had a braces/retainer emergency. Not only were they the nicest on the phone when I explained my situation, but they welcomed me with open arms! The office was nice, clean and fast! Then, when they were finished correcting my issue, they offered me ice cream! Talk about service! I would go to Dr. Risingers office for all of my orthodontics needs if I lived in the area! Thank you!

The staff at Risinger are friendly, professional and organized. The care and knowledge are top notch and they really care about your family’s overall experience from ease of billing and experience “in the chair” to entertainment and treats in the waiting area, and fun programs to incentivize good behaviors and a positive connection with the orthodontics team.

Very professional staff who are very friendly and do a wonderful job. I’ve known Dr. Rick and his father since my boys both had braces. We’ve always been treated well and they have both have done wonderful work with my sons. Now, it was my turn, and Dr. Rick has completed my orthodontic work with professionalism, success and kindness. I highly recommend his practice. I’m sure you will experience the same.

I really like this orthodontist office. The staff is very kind and always makes you feel welcome. They always have cookies or treats of some sort to eat after your appointment. They have a game room full of cool game machines that you can play on at any time while you are waiting, and they have an actual movie theater where cute movies are always showing. For your braces, they make the procedure as quick as possible, and you can pick lots of fun colors for your bands. I would definitely reccomend Risinger!

Just got my first set of Invisalign trays this morning.  Sierra was friendly, knowlegable and thorough. Risinger Orthodontics has had a strong reputation for many years; my children were patients as well.  The staff and Dr. Risinger display confident, positive energy in patient as well as how they support each other in team interactions. The facility is st

I visited Risinger Orthodontics to get evaluated for Invisalign. I have gotten multiple opinions from different dental practices and felt Risinger was the best fit for me. Their facility is beautiful and very high tech. The office staff is incredibly helpful and extremely friendly, they were able to make me appointments that fit with my challenging schedule and happily spent time helping me. Dr. Rick is also very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Their new procedures and policies in place to protect staff and patients from the spread of Covid have been very carefully planned out and organized. I’m very excited to begin treatment with this practice and highly recommend them!

Two of my children have received THE BEST orthodontic care at Risinger Orthodontics. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The office is comfortable with a movie theater, arcade games, TV’s and complimentary beverages while you wait. Best of all, my children are confident with their beautiful new smiles. I highly recommend Risinger Orthodontics!

Samantha B. from Wethersfield, CT (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely the nicest , accommodating and caring staff and doctors . Having treated both of my children over the span of 6 years , there was never a time that upon arriving we weren’t greeted with a smile. It’s safe to say that Dr. Risinger’s genuine caring nature isn’t just reserved for patients because the entire staff is always upbeat and smiling The extra bonuses and contests they offer for patients are unbelievable.

Pamela H. from Glastonbury, CT (Source: Yelp)


We have had a wonderful experience here at Risinger Orthodontics!! Everyone is so super friendly and helpful!!  I am so pleased with how Lila’s teeth are looking and we aren’t even done with treatment yet.  Ginger , Linea and Dr. Rick are wonderful!! Thanks to you all for the fun contests you run to keep the kids motivated and your office so cool. 10 stars

It’s always a fun trip to Risinger Orthodontist! From the professional, inviting and friendly staff, to the expertise, details and next steps until the next visit for my 11year old- we are thrilled to come to such a fine office! Plus my 5 year old loves to tag along for the warm cookies and a movie lol! Thank you!

I have had the pleasure of consulting Dr. Rick Risinger recently for a relatively complex orthodontic issue. My opinion is that he and his entire practice is absolutely world class. I am always greeted by a friendly, engaged staff, and am made to feel welcome and at ease. The facility is modern and clean, and is clearly designed to make patients as comfortable as possible (have you ever sat in a movie theater or played pinball in a doctor’s waiting room? You will here!). The assistants are courteous, knowledgeable, and totally invested in the well-being of their patients. Dr. Risinger explains your options clearly and thoroughly, and makes you understand not just the process of straightening teeth, but also the overall health impacts of whatever, if any, treatment you decide to pursue. This practice has obviously been built by a family, and is run like a family. As a patient, I feel like I am a part of that family now, too. Risinger Orthodontics is the first (and only) place I will go when my child is ready for orthodontic care.

Dr Rick and the folks at Risinger orthodontics made the Invisalign process so easy and comfortable I don’t know why anyone would not stop by for a consultant to see what they can do for you or a family member. Sierra was the best, very knowledgeable and easy to deal with! Two years from my first visit I have a whole new outlook on life with my great smile!!! Thank you!!!

I come from the Worcester area and each time I arrive I’m greeted with genuine kindness and professionalism. The office is beautiful. It’s filled with photos and appropriate decorations as well as a coffee bar. I’ve never waited long to be seen and Dr. Rick and his staff always answer my questions and never seem to be in a rush to get to the next patient. At my consult, Dr. Rick asked what I wanted to see change about my bite and what bothered me about my smile. He didn’t push his opinions first. He addressed my areas of concern and confirmed that we can meet my goals. It’s worth the drive!

Our family’s experience with Dr. Risinger and his staff has been nothing but perfect! The office staff has been a pleasure to work, and the ladies in the clinic have always treated my kids with respect and professionalism. I HIGHLY recommend Risinger Orthodontics!!!

Our daughter finished her set of braces and her final check up was yesterday. The experience from start to finish was great. Dr. Risinger, Rebecca and the rest of the staff were great to deal with, the results were great and my daughter says the same. Thanks guys!

We literally just started going here, but already I am so impressed!!! The office makes getting orthodontic treatment so much less intimidating – and even fun! The staff is incredible and the rewards program is genius!! I love how the kids are rewarded not just for taking car of their teeth, but for being good people!! I will definitely recommend Risinger Orthodontics!!!

By far the warmest welcome by office staff I’ve ever experienced. My daughter is 8 and they spoke directly to her for all questions and were incredibly thorough in their explanations. Honest about the need for procedures and convenient appointments in office/virtual. My daughter is excited to go back!

Julie M. from Manchester, CT (Source: Yelp)


As always, our visit today was fantastic!  We are starting treatment with our second child and couldn’t be happier! Dr. Rick and his entire staff always do an amazing job of making us feel welcome. They answered my sons questions and he is so excited to get his braces on! My daughters teeth look beautiful and I know my son’s will be just as nice!

Kelly S. from Willimantic, CT (Source: Yelp)


Amazing orthodontist as well as office staff. My two kids went through treatment with Dr. Risinger and now I’m visiting as a patient for Invisalign.  I have many other orthodontists closer to my home but choose to travel a bit for better care. You always feel welcome from the time you open the door, until you leave. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. You can’t go wrong with Dr. Risinger and his staff!!

I would highly recommend Risinger Orthodontics! Everyone was very professional, attentive and friendly. Dr. Risinger answered all of my questions and offered a great solution to an issue I was having. Thank you for the great care!

Risinger is the BEST!! I have never been so impressed overall by a business as I have been with Risinger. So professional, kind, efficient, and fun! I never thought I would say that about an orthodontist office but they really think of everything to make your visit enjoyable. From the tea/coffee and occasional cookies to the deluxe mini movie theater to the selection of ice cream treats offered in the summer and the mini arcade, the contests, to the overall positive attitude . So well run with kind reminder options for appointments which were VERY helpful and most of all they worked with our family to make paying for braces for two more manageable on our tight budget! .. but their prices are reasonable! Thank you!!!

A world class experience. Every interaction with everyone at the office is wonderful. They are kind and make everyone feel comfortable. They have a special way that makes you feel welcome and confident in your decision to have Dr. Rick and his team help with all those gorgeous smiles. The kids ask when they are going back because they love the movies, games and snacks. And coffee for me is a bonus!

Donna G. from East Hampton, CT (Source: Yelp)


The team at Risinger Orthodontics could not be nicer.   Both of my teens are patients there and have always been treated with kindness, caring and respect.  On the administrative side, Ginger is awesome!  There is no way I would have been able to navigate the insurance claims without her patience, guidance and persistence.  Thanks to all who work there!

Maria S. from Downtown, Hartford, CT (Source: Yelp)


We had our consultation visit on Tuesday and was very impressed the minute I made the appointment.  Melissa was so sweet and explained everything that would be done that day to my Daughter.  Asked her what questions/concerns she may have had.   She was so patient and answered all my questions.  I appreciated how Melissa explained showing  us a video on the process and what we can expect with braces.  I honestly now know why my dentist and friend has refereed us here.

Michael V. from Cromwell, CT (Source: Yelp)


As someone who works and owns a business in the Market Research Field, measuring customer satisfaction is something I do for a living.  As a result, I know quickly when the service received is at a high level or not – and Dr. Risinger and his team have it down.  Don’t look further, if you need Orthodontic work, go here first!

Jessica I. from East Hartford, CT (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rick and his staff were very helpful in understanding the orthodontic process. They were able to be see within a day. Our introductory office visit was professional, with all photos digitally available. We got a report that we could take home with us that highlighted our discussion and treatment plan. We will be returning to begin the corrective treatment very soon. If you have a teen that needs braces, this is the place to go. Looking forward to the next 26 months, doesn’t seem so bad now that we the team at Risinger Orthodontics on our side!

My daughter has severe crowding and a narrow lower jaw. Dr. Rick Risinger and his staff were very friendly and professional as they explained every step to my daughter (and me). They were very reassuring to someone so young (7 yo), let her ask any questions she had and made sure to answer everything clearly. I have no doubt my daughter’s treatment will go smoothly and that we will be happy with the results. The office was welcoming and bright and easy to find.

I’m one of those people that had braces as a young man (13 years) and didn’t wear my retainer as instructed. Of course, my teeth went back to their original position within a year or so. Today, at the age of 68 years, I’m here to sing the praises of Risinger Orthodontics. I began my Invisalign treatment approximately 10 months ago. At this point, my teeth are beautifully straight (no need for modesty here) with an additional four months to completion. For those of you that might be concerned about pain as your teeth move, like I was, the process is virtually painless. The staff is always bright, cheery and shockingly on time. Dr. Rick is a gem..a true professional with a caring heart. For those of you that have hesitated to return to the orthodontist after being away for many years, it’s OK. Risinger Orthodontics is your solution.

I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Risinger for my Invisalign, he listened to exactly what I wanted. I was able to get appointments easily around my work and kids’ schedules and the staff was always super accommodating. Now that it’s time for my daughter to start braces, were coming back – 100%.

As new patients of Invisalign for our 13 year old daughter, we have been so happy with the office!!! From the starting process to the appointment of getting it and follow-ups, the Staff and Dr. Rick have been so professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. We are so happy we found this great office!!!

Our experience with Risinger has been more than excellent. They really strive to make sure that each patient feels welcomed, comfortable and special. Even as a parent I look forward to my daughter’s appointments because of their terrific hospitality. They are extremely good at what they do and they allow you time, privacy and space to make the best decision for your dental care by giving you all the information up front. I have a great deal of trust and confidence in Dr. Risinger and his staff.
