We can make you smile!
Since 1965 Dr. Lionel Rentschler has been making people smile. In 1989 his daughter Dr. Lisa Rentschler joined the practice and together they continued to share their love of dentistry by helping patients feel comfortable and confident in their care. In 2008 we welcomed the newest member to our practice, Dr W.R. Blackwelder. Our practice is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality of esthetics and individualized dental care. We are committed to providing this in a reassuring, honest and supportive manner which will answer your questions and help you be an effective partner in your dental care. We welcome new patients and thank our existing patients for their continued confidence. We are happy to work with you in making financial arrangements.
In March of 2008 our practice relocated to our new facility in the South Main Medical Plaza. Our office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. We make every effort to stay on schedule, and ask that our patients be on time as well. For your convenience, we will confirm your dental visit 2 days before the appointment. If you need to reschedule, we ask that you please give 24 hours notice so that we may offer the time to another patient. If an emergency should arise, someone will always be available to respond to your concerns. Please call as early in the day as possible so that we may work you in to the schedule. If the problem arises after hours, by calling our office (951)735-2608 the answering service will forward the message to the Dr. on call.
