I have seen Dr. Rorick and his staff twice now...and I am pleased and impressed. My teeth are not in the best shape...but guess that what happens when you don't see a dentist for the better part of a decade. The first time was to have a broken tooth (the back molar) removed. Having it removed went painlessly. Everything him and his staff did...I felt pretty much nothing. Second time was for a cleaning and a "treatment plan". At no point did I feel like I was being talked down to or condescended. That was part of the reason I stopped seeing a dentist in the first place. His payment plans and his willingness to take things at his patient's pace as opposed to his own pace just adds to his appeal. Plus...my husband likes Dr. Rorick and his staff and he hates doctors, dentists, nurses and pretty much everyone else in the medical field.

The staff in the clinic are very hospitable along with a clean space and organize facility.
Lynn O.
From the moment I walked in I felt comfortable and at ease. From their beautiful, modern office to the professional, knowledgeable, friendly staff, this was, by far, the highest quality dental service I've ever received.
kim K.
Great dental office. Everyone is kind and welcoming. I appreciate the kid-friendly attention to detail. My 6 year old enjoyed being able to watch Netflix on his ceiling while having his cleaning. Glad this office was recommended to us.
Doug L.
I went for my initial visit today because my previous dentist did not accept my new insurance. The office was neat, clean and modern. The ""paperwork"" was very easy to complete as they sent it to me electronically so I was able to complete everything prior to getting there. The front desk associate was very friendly and welcomed me. My hygentist was very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Rorick met with me shortly after my cleaning and took the time to get to know me before getting to work. Great team!!
Catherine S.
I highly recommend Dr. Rorick and his staff! I received the most thorough dental cleaning I've ever had there. Dr. Rorick and his staff make you feel at ease. You don't feel like you are in a dental office. The environment is more like a spa! Thanks for a wonderful visit!
Maleah F.
This was the most comfortable cleaning experience I have ever had. From the pillow under my knees to the super soft pad on the headrest, they went to extreme levels to make sure I was comfortable. Being able to watch Netflix throughout was an extra special touch as well. Both my hygienist and the doctor were incredibly personable and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back.

Sycamore Hills Dentistry was absolutely amazing. I hadn't been to a dentist in longer than I'm willing to admit and the staff did everything they could to make me feel comfortable and calm. The receptionist was very friendly and explained my options clearly. Dr. Rorick was incredible. Knowledgable and so friendly. I would recommend this place to any and everyone!
John S.
I had a great experience at Sycamore Dentistry. Called to move my appointment and they were able to accommodate me the same day. Ultra friendly staff and great doctor. Would recommend to my friends and family.
Koren S.
We had to change dentists this year because of a change in our insurance. We did a lot of research and finally settled on this practice. Wow! We are SO glad we did! The staff is friendly and Dr. Rorick was great with me and my kids. My kids left saying that they LOVED going to the dentist. My youngest kiddo has even had to have some work done after her normal cleaning and still left the office smiling. I am so thankful for all the friendly office and dental staff! There is nothing but great care at Sycamore Hills.
