About Us

Lakeshore Dental has been providing dental care for Lake County for more than 15 years now.


Reception Desk

The atmosphere here is relaxed, our patients are comfortable with us from the first visit and tend to stay with us for the long run.

With our dependable, high quality care and continued devotion to the latest techniques, our patients can enjoy continued benefits of a highly experienced office which is constantly learning.

With that broad range of expertise and equipment, we can do most anything here in the office and rarely will you need to travel for special treatments.

We are accepting new patients and we’ll give you a consultation for a personalized treatment plan. The consultation enables us to pay attention to your specific needs and aim to improve your dental health and your smile, from your first visit and beyond. We love to sponsor a lot of local children through fund raisers for academics and sports.

“Each and every day, I come to work excited for the unique opportunities I have as a dentist. Having the ability to make positive changes to a person’s life through providing compassionate and effective dental health care is something I have never taken for granted. I feel so fortunate to be where I am.”

Dr. Ringrose has over 40 years experience. After graduating from Georgetown University School of Dentistry he was commissioned a Lieutenant in the U. S. Navy. He received a Letter of Commendation for treating combat wounded in Viet Nam while serving with the Marine Corps. He practiced for 20 years in San Francisco’s Marina District and moved north to Sonoma County after the earthquake in 1989. He started Lakeshore Dental Practice in 2001 after finding a need in Lake County for comprehensive dental care in an under served area.
