Dr. Peter A. Ruff has been serving Bremerton and the surrounding communities for more than 40 years. Dr. Ruff graduated from the University of Detroit's Mercy School of Dentistry with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1974. He went on to complete a general practice residency at Madigan Army Medical Center in 1975 before serving three years in the U.S. Air Force.
After leaving the service, Dr. Ruff opened his private practice, Northwest Dental Healthcare. Since then, he has completed a two-month fellowship in IV sedation at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York; obtained a mastership in IV and all forms of moderate sedation from the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology; and earned a fellowship in the International Association of Oral Implantology, and membership with the American Academy of General Dentistry.
He also currently serves on staff at the Harrison Medical Center Department of Medicine. Dr. Ruff is dedicated to continuing his education as much as possible in order to serve his patients best.
The most rewarding part of Dr. Ruff’s job is hearing that his patients have had a good experience at our dental office. He loves to please patients and help them feel as comfortable as possible while they’re in his care. Dedicated to providing his patients with stress-free dentistry, Dr. Ruff has completed numerous hours of continuing education and dedicates his time to learning more about relieving dental anxiety and fears. In 1997, he founded the North West Dental Fears Research center in order to study the origins and treatment on dental anxiety and fear.
