Welcome to Raptou Family Dental! We are an experienced, friendly, and professional dental practice, located in the beautiful city of Columbus, Ohio. We specialize in general and family dentistry.

We believe in giving our patients the finest care possible, emphasizing comfort and quality care during your dental visit with us.
We Are First and Foremost a Family Dentist
One of the most important things when picking a dentist is understanding what education they have been through. To practice as a family dentist, you must first undergo three to five years of intense dental schooling after completing the Dental Admissions Test (DAT). This incorporates a lot of the information that medical schools provide. From there, they must pass the National Board Dental Examinations (NBDE), to graduate and become licensed. Many dentists go straight into the family dentistry field with all of the proper knowledge to take good care of their patients. At Raptou Family Dental, we believe in taking the best care of you.
We Offer Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is the field of dentistry that is focused on proper oral hygiene and disease prevention. The goal of preventive dentistry is to prevent the formation of cavities, gum disease, and other forms of damage to your teeth. This is accomplished with a combination of professional dental care and self-care.
The most basic form of preventive dentistry involves regular dental exams. It is generally recommended that these exams occur every six months for the best results. This allows for professional cleanings and feedback on your dental care practices. Regular dental exams also allow for the early detection of any dental hygiene deficiencies, such as poor flossing habits or the accumulation of plaque.
Come See Us for Your Cosmetic Dentistry Needs
We also offer cosmetic dentistry services here at Raptou Family Dental. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on making positive changes to your teeth and smile. The first advantage of cosmetic dentistry is that it stimulates oral hygiene. Before the actual diagnosis, most cosmetic procedures necessitate a minor dental cleaning. Oral prophylaxis removes tartar and stains that have collected over time. Cosmetic dentistry progresses mouth health by enlightening your mouth, restoring weak teeth, and enhancing overall function. This improves oral health and prevents more serious dental issues in the future.
Some of the cosmetic dentistry services we provide include teeth whitening, composite fillings, cosmetic contouring, porcelain veneers, composite bonding, and all ceramic crowns.
We understand you may have some questions, and even some anxiety, about visiting the dentist. We care for our patients and listen to each person’s individual needs. Our office has worked to create a comfortable, smooth, and easy to understand dental visit for all of your dental needs.
We Offer Easy to Use Online Patient Forms
To help streamline your visit, we have all of our patient forms available online for you to fill out prior to your dental visit with us. These include your patient registration, dental history, and required HIPAA notices. We also provide a, “What We Offer, What We Ask” form, which answers some of the most frequently asked questions we receive here. This includes our location, hours of operation, appointment and reminder policies, and insurance and billing policies and procedures. We do our best to spell everything out so there are no questions, and you are prepared for your dental visit with us.
