Stephen Ratcliff, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington

Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington Hello! I’m Dr. Dr. Stephen Ratcliff, DDS, of Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington, Texas.

I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1990. Dentistry is a challenging and fascinating profession.  Dentists must have diagnostic skills, dexterity, extensive scientific knowledge, and good visual memory. Dentistry also requires artistic ability. In addition to the technical aspects of dentistry, I really enjoy interacting with my Arlington dental patients.

I recognize that my clients have other choices in the Arlington area dental practices.  I work continually to earn their trust and surpass their expectations.

Each dentistry client is unique. Many of my patients come in twice-yearly for an exam and cleaning. We help them maintain excellent oral health. Some cosmetic dentistry clients come to me seeking major restorative dental work. It is extremely gratifying to complete a smile makeover with porcelain veneers or dental implants and see the client’s reaction when they see the result for the first time.

When I have a pre-treatment consultation with a new dentistry client, it is very informative for both of us. The patient learns the specifics about the possible procedures and I learn about the clients’ goals, concerns and expectations. Then I work with the client to develop a dental treatment plan that fits the patient’s needs, desired outcome and budget.  Teeth whitening often allows patients to obtain a great smile quickly.

My dental practice is located at 909 W Mitchell St in Arlington. If you are looking for an experienced cosmetic dentist in the Arlington area, call 817-200-7323 to schedule a consultation.  We also service patients in the Fort Worth, Grapevine, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield areas.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Fort Worth Cosmetic Dentistry The people who are most happy with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh.

They are the result of cosmetic dentistry performed by an experienced aesthetic dentist.

Two common smile-killers are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth

Few people have pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings, our teeth darken as we age. Fortunately, the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening. Picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile. It is possible with safe and affordable teeth whitening at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.

Share That Smile

"The Event Invitation"

Our office participated in a Fund Raiser for Dental Health Arlington on October 9th.  The Dinner which was held at Walnut Creek Country Club featured a chef demonstration, meal and an auction all to benefit the sealant program “Smiles” sponsored by this Arlington organization.  By placing sealants  on cavity risk teeth of Arlington elementary students we can prevent decay and help preserve the teeth of these youngsters  for a lifetime.  The highlight of the evening was the live auction.  Jay Ryan, the auctioneer, worked the room into a fever pitch as the Dallas Stars package was a lead item.  Our office donated a Dallas Stars game jersey autographed by the whole team to complete this Stars game evening extravaganza. We had a number of patients who worked had to make this a successful fund raiser in which thousands of dollars were donated for this worthy organization. We are proud of them and needless to say we all “Shared That Smile”.

You Helped Raise 25 Million

Posted on Sep 8, 2008 in Uncategorized

This past spring and summer our office offered teeth whitening services at a significantly reduced price and donated 100 percent of the proceeds to help children facing serious health problems. This is the eleventh year that my staff and I participated in the Smiles for Life program.  Half of the funds raised this year by our office were contributed to the local Dallas Stars Project-Children’s Medical Center. The other half of the funds were contributed to the  Garth Brooks’ Teammates For Kids Foundation for use in health, education and inner city programs that benefit children.  

It has been great seeing the beautiful smiles of our patients after performing our whitening services-but it is even better to see the smiles on the faces of the kids our contributions are helping to support.  So, a word of thanks to all the patients who participated in the program.  “Smiles for Life” is truly a Win-Win program!
