Dr. Rifkin was fabulous. Even after moving to Latin America 10 years ago, I still would use Dr. Rifkin and the Rifkin dental group for all my cleanings instead of finding a new dentist in Panama! Always caring, always cheerful and generously donated to support a dental clinic in a rural coffee community in Nicaragua that had no access to dental care to give kids a brighter smile and good oral health.

I am seeing this over a year later. I am sad to read about your family’s loss. I want to give my condolences to your whole family.
