MEET DR. RICK RATCHFORD
Dr. Rick Ratchford is a Chattanooga native and a graduate of East Ridge High School. He attended undergraduate school at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and earned his dental degree from the University of Tennessee School of Dentistry in Memphis. During his senior year he received a top clinician award from his instructors.
Dr. Ratchford was in solo practice for over 30 years before joining Shallowford Family Dental Group. “I still love dentistry and interacting with my patients. They are all like family to me and I try to provide them with the best possible treatment available! With SFDG’s reputation, technology, and wonderful staff, I knew I had found the right fit for me and my patients!”
Dr. Ratchford loves playing golf, boating, and hunting. “I still manage to get a round of golf in whenever I can, but most of my time is now spent with my wife (Sheree), my two daughters (and spouses), and watching my grandchildren play sports! Dr. Ratchford and his wife are long time members of Brainerd Baptist Church.
Can’t say enough great things about this dentist office! All the doctors are awesome and take great care of you! The staff and hygienists are also incredible! A great place for your families dental needs in Chattanooga!
My family and I would highly recommend SFDG. Dr. Ankar and his team always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.
A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only Chattanooga dentist office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the team was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
Very comfortable environment. Very nice and professional team. Highly recommend this dentist!
Absolutely amazing practice! Sally and Dr. are just great! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great dentist office! 🙂
