High Quality Endodontic Care

For Each and Every Patient

Welcome to
Altitude Endodontics

At Altitude Endodontics we strive to provide the highest quality care to each and every patient. It is our goal to make you as comfortable as possible from the initial phone call all the way through treatment.

It has been the traditional belief of the general population that nothing is more painful than a root canal. Over the years with the establisment of anesthesia, patients are beginning to view dentists and specifically Endodontists as pain relievers rather then pain inducers. It is our desire and responsibility to provide optimal treatment for each patient so that your faith in us is not misplaced.

How We Can Help You

Featured Dental Services

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

When the canal system of your tooth becomes infected due to tooth decay, trauma, or deep restorations, it may be necessary to perform root canal therapy.

Oral and IV Sedation

Oral and IV Sedation

While most non-surgical treatments can easily be performed with local anesthesia, if you have severe dental anxiety, stronger options are available.



It’s vital for any dental office to stay on top of the newest treatments and latest technology, and at Altitude Endodontics we do just that.

Very friendly Doctor and staff. It is shown by the entire office that you are valued as a patient. Your health and well being is their top priority. The treatment was explained to me in detail and in a manner that I could easily understand. If you have any dental fear or anxiety Dr Ricketts and team can and will put that fear/anxiety at ease with their knowledge, confidence, and kindness. Rest assured you will be taken care of!


Dr. Ricketts and staff were amazing as they solved a long term significant issue with my mouth. His very detailed and careful approach proved to work out perfectly. I couldn’t be happier, and would recommend then to anyone.


Doctor Ricketts and his staff provide wonderful dental care. In all my years, I’ve not before experienced the level of care and follow-up as this doctor and staff offer. They are a special group of folks, I feel fortunate to have found them.


Dr. Ricketts and his team are exceptional! My daughter had to have a root canal and internal bleaching done on her front tooth, and Dr. Ricketts and his team did an amazing job, from making her feel comfortable through every appointment, to making sure the result she wanted was gained. We are so happy to have been treated at this office and we will definitely be referring anyone we know to them!


Dr. Ricketts and his staff are very knowledgeable, professional and caring. Staff always took time to answer all my questions and inform me of procedures and billing without rushing me. The equipment used is state of the art. Pricing is reasonable. Dr. Ricketts has great integrity and is a great doctor. He has his client's well being in best interest. I would refer anyone to him.


I had a great experience at Altitude Endodontics! Dr. Ricketts and entire staff were extremely personable, professional and efficient. After taking very impressive 3D scan of my mouth, it turned out that surgery wasn't required and less than a week later I felt 100% better with his prescribed medical treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Ricketts and his office.


“It is my goal to use the knowledge and skill acquired to grow with evolving technology, medical needs, and societal demands, so that I can be confident the endodontic services I provide are optimum for all my patients and that the age-old perception of the endodontist is improved one patient at a time.”
