I highly recommend Dr. Ratz!

"As a family, we have been going to Dr. Ratz since he was in the Plainfield office. My mother considers him to be part of our extended family. This is one dentist and staff no one has to be afraid of - they take great care of the patients and treat everyone as a member of their extended family. I highly recommend Dr. Ratz and his team and have recommended Dental Associates every chance possible. I am still disappointed Dorinda is no longer a hygienist and moved to billing!!!"- Rachel S.

Outstanding facility with first-rate staff

"Dental Associates of Basking Ridge is an outstanding facility with first-rate staff. I highly recommend this office.    "- Carmen P.

Completely satisfied

"As usual, completely satisfied.  Both office staff and Dr. Faltas are excellent; we've been coming here for the many years since Dr. Yawger retired and certainly will continue.  Dr. Faltas and Durga are an excellent combination.  What a change in dentistry since I was a boy!!    "- Steve M

The most attentive dentists

"Dr. Faltas is the most attentive dentist.  I strongly recommend him.    "- Louise V.

My anxieties have disappeared

"I am so grateful for finding DABR.  I previously had a very verbally abusive dentist who was incompetent and substandard in practice and workmanship. I refer to him as the "Devil Dentist of Chatham".  Finding DABR and Dr. Kuitems (six years ago) changed my attitude and approach to the dental experience. The ladies (Heather, Diane & Katie) at the front desk treat me as a friend whom they are genuinely happy to see. Dr. Kuitems' assistant, Erica, greets me and escorts me back to Dr. K's room. (Or Jeff greets me and takes me back to give my teeth a fine-tuned check-up.)  Dr. Kuitems enters with a big smile and a fun anecdote.  The appointment runs smoothly. I ask a lot of questions which Dr. K thoroughly answers.  My anxieties have disappeared.  I am comfortable and confident that all is good. I feel respected and validated. AND ... above all...   Dr. Kuitems’ workmanship, character, kindness and ethics are qualities of the quintessential dentist ... and HUMAN BEING ...that he is.  "- Linda M.

This practice is worth the trip

"What can I add that hasn't already been said?  Even if it's out of the way, this practice is worth the trip.    "- William G.

What more could you want!

"Great front office staff, excellent hygienists, and fabulous dentist (Dr. Kuitems). What more could you want! I highly, highly recommend Dental Associates of Basking Ridge."- Glenn M.

I can’t say enough about how great they are

"I have been going to this dental office for close to 10 years now, and I can't say enough about how great they are. The receptionists, Kathy and Heather, are THE nicest and sweetest receptionists you will ever meet! They are always welcoming you with warm smile, they are genuine and helpful, and have lots of patience. Always make me smile just seeing them alone. The main dentist of mine is Dr. Faltas and he is very professional, highly skilled, friendly and always follow up on a phone call after any major procedure, just to make sure you are feeling ok. Super nice dentist who I trust completely. I had to get tooth implant and my oral surgeon there, Dr. Albani has done great job. He is really friendly, funny, and I feel very comfortable talking to him about anything and everything, like a very good friend. I had a few hygienists over the years, and they have all been great also. They really take good care of you. I have recommended this dental office to many people, since they are amazing in every way. Great staff, awesome doctors, clean & beautiful facility. What more do you need?  "- Google Review

They always make me feel welcome

"I've been coming to Dental Associates for almost 20 years and they always make me feel welcome and create a very pleasant environment. I never get stressed out going to the dentist. Dr. Kuitems is great!    "- Charlie F.

Very friendly, professional staff.

"Very friendly, professional staff.  This is not your father's dental facility.  The waiting room is like a five-star hotel lobby and my son and I were made to feel like family.  Dr. Ratz is very calming and took the time to explain everything. Highly recommended without reservation.    "- Jim B.

The entire staff is professional and go out of their way to accommodate patients

"My family has been going to Dental Associates of Basking Ridge for about 20 years. Dr. Kuitems and his staff are the best. Dr. Kuitems has a very pleasant manner and has the gift of putting patients at ease during dental work!  He also has expertise in orthodontics and gave me some very good advice when my kids were in braces. The entire staff are professional and go out of their way to accommodate patients. I also want to add that the group has done an exceptional job in creating a relaxing atmosphere. The front desk staff are friendly and attentive and the waiting area is so comfortable (although the wait to see a dentist/hygienist is very short!) Always easy to make and change appointments.    "- Jackie G.


"Having also "feared" going to the dentist, I have finally found a practice where I actually ENJOY going. The work is top rate. The staff and dentists are caring and warm. I feel like a member of the family each time I go. If you are not a big fan of going to the dentist - this is the place for you. Special Kudos to Dr. Faltas."- John Z.

Love them!

"Love them.  I would drive a long way to keep them as my dentist.  Dentists are like mechanics. When you find a great one you really appreciate it.    "- Hemidell L.

Best in the business

Highly recommended

"Been going here for almost 10 years now.  Friendly, efficient, professional, and convenient.  The automated reminder system is good and the billing is fair and timely.  Not sure what else they could do other than use more J&J products!  Highly recommended.    "- Rob W.

Great team, the dentists

"My husband and I go to Dental Associates of Basking Ridge for a couple of years now, and every time we go there it is one more pleasant experience. Besides a great team, the dentists, especially Dr. Faltas, are not only extremely skilled but also very kind and they go beyond their expertise to make your treatment as smooth as possible. My husband and I have no plans to move to a different place for our dental needs. I recommend it!"- Maria P.

Awesome dental office

"Awesome dental office.  I dealt with Dorinda, Joyce and Dr. Bill Ratz.  I was very impressed with their professionalism and care throughout the entire process.  Dorinda warmly greeted me when I arrived and made me feel welcome.  Joyce handled my check up and kept me informed as she took me through every step.  Dr. Bill Ratz was compassionate and detailed with his explanations of what needed to be done.  Hands down, the should be your dental office as well.    "- ER RE

Really really happy with my experience

"Abbey was amazing! I had a horrible previous dental experience at a different dentist and it kept me from seeing a dentist for 2 years. Abbey eased my fears, completely cleaned my teeth and even offered a trial of teeth whitening! Really really happy with my experience, totally worth the trip!"- Stephanie

Informative, friendly and professional

"Dr. Faltas and the entire staff is informative, friendly and professional. I feel like I am stepping into a familiar family atmosphere when I am there for my routine cleanings or other procedures. Dr. Faltas is thoughtful and thorough in answering any questions I have and they always follow up with patients afterwards, a genuine gesture that provides a personal touch and is appreciated.  "- Nicole S.

The Best!

"Dr. Bill Ratz is the best!    "- Eileen B.

Everyone in this office is fantastic

"Everyone in this office is fantastic. They took me on a Friday afternoon when my filling came out when I wasn't even a patient of theirs. Then they gave me a discount because I don't have dental insurance. I've since gone back to them and they are great. Also, their waiting room is cozy like a living room : )"- Cathy M.

Great service with very nice people

"Great place for dental work. Great service with very nice people. I would recommend them to all my friends and family."- Loc N.

Best Staff, Best Hygienists & Best Dentists.

"They are the best I have ever experienced. Best Staff, Best Hygienists & Best Dentists. Love the fact that the front desk staff, finance all are superb."- Syed J.

Excellent care and service

"I have been going to the Dental Associates of Basking Ridge for seven years and they are the best. What a professional office on every front. Excellent care and service.    "- Ralph J.

Extremely communicative

"Dr. K is truly exceptional. His ability to fit my crowns, and even the temp, has never been matched in my long history with dental care.  He is also extremely communicative.  Prior to the procedure, he explains what will be taking place and why.  During the procedure, he asks about your status constantly and explains the progress. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention my favorite hygiene therapist, Durga.  She is very gentle and thorough.  She makes dental cleanings quick and easy, and we have a laugh or two along the way!    "- John S.

New Jersey’s best right here!!!!

"Dr. Faltas and his team of associates are truly customer-focused. Always a warm welcome and wealth of knowledge for our family's dental maintenance and needs for 23 years going strong!!  New Jersey's best right here!!!!    "- Lisa K.

Professional, courteous treatment

"Have been seeing Dr. Kuitems for 30 years and have consistently received professional, courteous treatment.    "- William A.

The staff is fantastic

"Dr. Faltas and his team are the best, I've been going to them for over 12years. Great Patient-Doctor manner, and he truly cares about his patients well-being and their teeth. He is also super responsive returning my calls and even making calls on a weekend just to check on me after a dental procedure. The staff is fantastic too. They go out of their way to accommodate my schedule to "fit me in".    "- K T

"As usual Dr. Faltas and staff have provided our family with a great experience with every visit. Highly recommend them to anyone in the area.    "- Andrew F.

If you are looking for a dentist, this is where you should go.

"So blessed by them. Everyone is kind, organized, and does their best work. If you are looking for a dentist, this is where you should go.    "- Elizabeth S.

Friendly staff

"Great doctors and hygienists who understand the apprehension of dental visits. Friendly staff. Clean and welcoming wait area. Absolutely try the practice. You will be glad you did.    "- Terri E.

Would recommend Dental Associates to anyone to get great dental care!

"Have been using Dental Associates for many years.  Dr. Ratz is a very knowledgeable and caring dentist and Jefferson is the best hygienist I have ever used.  Maggie, Dr. Ratz's assistant is wonderful and the girls at the front desk are great!  Would recommend Dental Associates to anyone to get great dental care!    "- Judith A.

Kind and Caring Professionals

"I was told by Dental Surgeons, and Dentists that I needed an implant in front tooth, a three unit bridge could not be saved and another tooth might not be salvageable.  Dr Kuitems evaluated me and reinserted the crown in my smile after rebuilding core and post, saved my three unit bridge and did a root canal successfully on the other tooth. He is a very kind and caring professional and his staff are wonderful. Lastly, his lounge waiting area and dental chair are more comfortable than any I have experienced elsewhere. His dental assistant Erica, was also wonderful. I highly recommend him!    "- John H.
