Office Philosophy

At Rice Orthodontics, we strive to create an orthodontic experience that:

  • Is customized to the treatment needs of the individual
  • Involves and educates the patient on his/her treatment plan
  • Enables the patient and family members to develop a personal relationship with the staff
  • Runs on time, during scheduled appointments as well as the overall duration of treatment
  • Exceeds expectations!

Community Involvement

Rice Orthodontics takes pride in supporting the community. Through sponsorships, fundraisers, silent auctions, donations, and volunteer events, Dr. Rice and the staff of Rice Orthodontics contribute to organizations and activities that are important to our patient base and to us. Most recently, we have shown support for:

  • Girl Scouts of America
  • Liberty Pines Academy
  • River Garden
  • Second Harvest
  • Team Hayden
  • Toys for Tots

If you have an opportunity that you think Rice Orthodontics may be interested in, please mention it at your next appointment. Although we can’t participate in all opportunities shared with us, we are committed to making an active contribution in the community we serve and we enjoy getting to know the organizations that are meaningful to our patients.
