Meet Dr. Ronald Robertson

Passionate about caring for each patient in the way he would like to be treated, and always emphasizing respect and gentleness, Dr. Ronald Robertson Jr. is known in the community for delivering exceptional, painless dental care.

Understanding that each person has unique needs and desires in seeking treatment, Dr. Robertson creates treatment plans customized to the individual’s requirements. He uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment to restore oral health and develop beautiful smiles, but never forgets the essential connection between doctor and patient.

Having grown up with dentist for a father, Dr. Robertson first started assisting in his father’s practice, with emergency patients, when he was 12 years old. Those early experiences instilled in him the desire to help people get out of pain and improve their oral health, as well as the bonds that form between a family dentist and those they care for. He knew that the oral healthcare profession was right for him. He’s now been practicing for more than 25 years and knows it was the right decision.
