Meet Us

Dr. PriceRalph W. Price, D.D.S.

Dr. Price obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 1979.  He then served as a general dentist in the United States Air Force for four years. 

After his service, he chose to pursue a specialty certification in periodontics and began a residency in 1983 at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.  After earning his specialist certification in periodontology in 1985, Dr. Price began private practice in Arizona.

Dr. Price offers conservative treatment options with a focus on helping patients keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.  He is noted for his personal attention to patients.  This is summarized below by a member of his practice:

"Dr. Price is an excellent, well-educated and friendly periodontist.  He always provides patients with what he feels is the best treatment option for their health and comfort, but never pressures patients into active treatment.  He is attentive, often personally contacting patients or their general dentists regarding treatment.  Patients are informed of their condition in a 'down to earth' fashion, and are always kept well-informed."
