Dr. Rick Kariotoglou (car-ee-oh-toe-glue)

Dr. Rick has 20+ years of experience and is proud to be one of the top dentists in Scottsdale. He is committed to offering his patients only the very best that dentistry has to offer, by implementing a soft touch and the latest technology. Because he has a passion for learning and staying on top of the advancements in dentistry, he attends numerous continuing education programs each year. When he isn’t focused on your smile, he enjoys golf, racquetball, skiing, and snowboarding.

After graduating from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry, he was offered a full-time faculty position at the school. But recognizing his passion for working with patients and transforming smiles, he moved to New York City where he fell in love with the city while practicing & advancing his knowledge of Cosmetic Dentistry. In 2009, the beauty of the desert and warmer climate inspired his move to Arizona. 

Since acquiring his practice here in Scottsdale, Dr. Rick is continuously learning about new innovative methods and techniques to offer the best and most updated care for his patients on a personal level. He looks forward to positively impacting the lives of his patients and the community. He has a passion to educate people on a healthy lifestyle and help them put their best face forward in their daily lives.
