Welcome to Tri-Lakes Dental Center
Dr. Jeff Rick has been practicing dentistry in the Branson and Hollister Area for over 25 years. His state-of-the-art office features digital x-rays, televisions at every patient chair, headphones and low-cost oral cancer screenings. His friendly, knowledgeable staff will ensure that you and every member of your family are comfortable and well-cared for. Dr. Rick and his staff will take care of all of your dental needs, from basic cleanings to whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, root canal, treatment of periodontal disease, and even total reconstruction.
It is my goal to provide the best possible comprehensive dental treatment, individualized for each patient's unique needs. Our patients are treated as friends and neighbors, not just teeth and mouths. The joy I find in dentistry is through discovering the interests and desires of my patients and providing oral care which allows them to maintain healthy lives.

Dr. Rick: Thanks to you and your assistant for your work on fixing my teeth last week. I came in expecting a reiew and to schedule a time for repair. Instead you went right to work and quickly and professionally exceeded my expectations. Needless to say that I was impressed by both of your concentrated and coordinated work efforts. Also, the results are great.
I will never be able to thank you enough for what you've done. Sometimes I forget that kindness is really out there, but I think God puts out reminders every once and a while;)
So thank you again and again and again! If there is anything I can help with, please don't hesitate to ask. Need babysitting? How about some (overcooked) cookies? Well I just happen to have some! Take care and thank you again..
I wish to thank you and your team for promptly getting me in yesterday and for helping me through what I perceived might be a difficulty. As always, the service and professionalism I receive at Tri-Lakes Dental is second to none and highly appreciated.
I just wanted to say "Thanks" for agreeing to see me on such a short notice. You can't imagine how much it meant to me. It is bad enough being 55 years old but 55 with a front tooth missing is too much. You did good-the tooth stayed in and I had a great time in Branson. I will see my doctor tomorrow. God Bless.
