About Your Dentist

Ruth Molokwu Okereke, DDS

"You don't have to brush your teeth just the ones you want to keep."

My Mission

I would like my patients to say that I am relatable, always have a positive attitude, offer quality care, and understand their needs and wants in dentistry. What I like most about dentistry is the one-on-one interaction with the patients. I love being able to have that doctor-patient relationship transform from one of trepidation to that filled with trust in me as their dentist.
