Dr. Ripplinger graduated from Loma Linda Dental School in 1985. He currently maintains a dental practice in Las Vegas and travels monthly to Cottonwood to help us and spend time with his father.
While he is a general dentist and performs all aspects of general dentistry, Dr. Ripplinger is a surgeon at heart. He has been a tremendous help with our more challenging surgical cases and has helped reduce the need for referring patients out of town for surgical care.
He is also a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
