I met with a few orthodontists before we met Dr. Riva. Upon meeting, I was impressed, he is personable and took his time explaining procedure to my daughter and put her mind at ease. His staff are so accommodating and never make us wait. Appointments are not overbooked and he doesn't rush the process in order to make money. I love his pleasant staff and the fact that my time is valuable too.

My daughter who is a student at Brock University had completed her ortho work in Toronto. She had metal bar that became loose behind her bottom teeth. I found Dr. Rivas office through ratemds. I called the office and they gave her an appointment the following day that fit into her school schedule. She said that everyone in the office was amazing and she is sorry that she didn’t have all her orthodontics in this office. On top of this amazing experience at Dr. Rivas office, they didn’t even charge her for the repair. Thank you so much.

Dr. Riva and his staff are really great. One of the things I appreciate most is that they make a huge effort to get you in and out quickly. Our friends, who go to another ortho in the area, book several hours off for each appointment because of how long they have to wait. Dr. Riva knows your time is valuable which is really important to our family. We're so happy we decided on Dr. Riva. My daughter's teeth look amazing!

Dr Riva put my braces on for me over 10 years ago and I still go to see him if I have any issues with the wires behind my teeth, he fixes them at no charge. I have always been afraid of the dentist and any dental procedures but he and his staff are amazing and explain everything before they start. I'll always remember the day I had my braces removed (after 4 years of having them on) he gave me a jumbo box of smarties.

We tried another orthodontic office but heard about Dr. Riva through friends and co-workers. We are so pleased with his office and the friendly staff. Our daughter just got her braces and is very happy so far with her treatment. We are so glad we found his office.

Provided an overall excellent orthodontic experience, both Dr.Riva himself and his staff. He is attentive and an excellent listener, very thorough in his treatment. He is extremely experienced and it shows in his expertise and ability to answer any question posed to him. His staff is also friendly and accommodating. Was greeted in a friendly manner, and was seen to quickly ever appointment I went to. Very accommodating when booking appointments and willing to work around your schedule. Hygienists and assistants were professional and courtesy. Overall I would highly recommend this orthodontics office.

Biography

Born and raised in St. Catharines, Dr. Riva was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry by his father, Dr. Al Riva, who practiced dentistry in Niagara for 50 years. In 1989 at the age of 26, Dr. Riva graduated as a Certified Specialist in Orthodontics from the University of Toronto. Contributing to the profession, he developed the original Niagara Peninsula Dental Association Web Site and is the former editor of the Niagara Peninsula Dental Association newsletter. Dr. Riva is happily married with three grown children. He is a sports enthusiast who has participated and coached at a high level in multiple sports. Presently he enjoys cycling, gardening, yoga and spending time with his family - especially on holidays to Walt Disney World. Ever mindful of those less fortunate, Dr. Riva sponsors three foster children through Plan International. Dr. Riva and his orthodontic team run a family-oriented practice reflecting Dr. Riva’s core values, which are kindness and humility. Many referrals to the practice are by word of mouth, which is a testament to patients’ continued satisfaction with their experiences in the office and, most importantly, with their beautiful smiles.
