What Sets Us Apart

A Dental Experience unlike Any Other

Dr. Rios and our team place a high value on good, old-fashioned relationship building based on mutual trust and respect. We have much of the best technology money can buy, in addition to all the qualities it cannot: honesty, compassion, gentleness, friendliness, skilled hands, and determination. We treat everyone how we would prefer to be treated.

It begins with the warm personal greeting you receive the moment you walk into our professionally decorated and appointed reception area, which is designed with your comfort in mind. Take advantage of our complimentary WiFi, a beverage station, and comfortable seating. TVs are in the reception area and mounted in the ceiling of each operatory.

We recognize that you are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects your individual needs. Dr. Rios and our attentive team will listen carefully and answer your questions fully before, during, and after treatment so you feel properly informed every step of the way. Our goal is for you to feel comfortable, secure, and confident that your treatment needs are provided by a talented, trustworthy team. 

For Your Comfort

We provide headsets, neck pillows, warm blankets, and even a hand to hold to comfort you during treatment. A small stuffed animal may pay a surprise visit, keep you company, and provide that extra secure feeling. We understand that sometimes this is still not enough; therefore, for our most anxious patients, we offer safe sedation options. Dr. Rios also uses a Vibraject syringe attachment to perform practically painless injections.

The Best Technology

Technology is used to enhance your dental experience and provide top-quality services, including digital X-rays, digital photography, video, and electronic records.


We like to keep our office both efficient and inviting. Our staff respects your busy schedule and makes sure to get you in treatment on time with little or no wait. We are happy for patients to arrive early and will do our best to start appointments with the same dedicated promptness.

Giving Back

Dr. Rios and our team believe in promoting healthy lives for everyone. Not many other practices in the area have so thoroughly integrated charitable outreach into their philosophy.

We regularly host a Halloween Candy Buy Back in support of our troops. We also have held free dentistry days in our office, to provide free dental care to more than 50 patients in one day. Dr. Rios regular volunteers to provide free care at sponsored events in the area, such as Gives Kids a Smile and the FDA-sponsored Mission of Mercy.

Relaxed Care Environment

When you trust us with your dental care, you will have a comfortable, no-pressure experience. We don’t pressure you into treatment, and we ensure a simple, pain-free care process. Your questions are welcome, and your understanding of every stage of treatment is our priority.

Close to the Community

Our practice has been serving the Baymeadows/Southside area community for more than 13 years. We live in this area, we go to church in the area, and our children attend school here.

Dr. Rios graduated from Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville and San Jose Catholic Elementary School. His wife is a third-generation Jacksonville native. We have built an incredible level of trust with our neighbors over the past 18 years. Many of our patients have grown up with us, and we are proud to be long-term partners in their oral health.

Complimentary Consultations

We understand that sometimes patients may be unsure of their needs and may have concerns about a treatment proposal that has been offered. Other times, they may not be sure if they may be a candidate for elective services such as implants, veneers, or Invisalign®. A patient may wish to be quoted a fee over the phone for treatment that is best discussed after an evaluation.

In these types of situations, we will gladly offer a FREE consultation, because that’s the best way to understand the problem and to discuss options fully that may be available prior to making any commitment.

What Our Patients Say

After four years of searching I finally found a dentist who is so much like the one I left in Lake Placid, Fl. Dr. Rios is kind, personable, efficient and his staff reflects that attitude. Yes I'd recommend him to family. friends and someone who is looking for a really good dentist.

Dr. Rios is by far the best Dentist I have ever had!!! He did a perfect job on my front 4 teeth 11 years ago and they still look great today. I now drive from Charlotte, NC to see family and make sure I come to see Dr. Rios rather than someone where I live. I just have 100% trust in him.
-Gregory B.

I used to be terrified of dentist, however Doctor Rios and his staff make you feel right at home! If I even flinch, he's giving me more numbing stuff, no questions asked. So glad to have found him and his wonderful staff!
-Melissa T.

Love it here! Amazing staff! Had fillings done and my last experience was so bad but here it was great and staff was reassuring. Great doctor, great staff.
-Lisa B.

Amazing! I've had an amazing experience with this office. Dr. Rios and staff have become like an extended family. His touch is very light when working on your teeth. He explains everything and I mean everything. All visits were not only painless in the office but painless at home as well.
-Sherndina M.

I've been going here for a year now and am completely satisfied. Very little wait, pleasant staff, a great doctor, and best of all my teeth look better than they ever have. Sometimes you get lucky with doctors and this is a great example of this.
