Meet the Team

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Our Practice & Vision

  Our vision at Sandalwood Dental Care is to serve each and every patient with a dental experience they cherish and can recommend to others. That principle has not changed since 1981 when Dr. Ron Ragulsky began his dental career from scratch with a simple goal to treat people with compassion. From that simple principle blossomed a dental practice on the southside of Pueblo that not only serves the Pueblo community, but also reaches many surrounding communities. In 2014, that core principle continued with the addition of Dr. Ron’s son, Dr. Greg Ragulsky, to the dental practice.
  Being born and raised in Pueblo, our dentists understand the challenges many members of our communities face and strive to bring the best dental care available to every patient they meet. Our vision has continued to evolve to embrace the best available technology to provide a modern and advanced dental care experience. We believe developing a personal relationship with each patient requires taking the necessary time to truly understand our patients and involve them in the treatment planning process that accomplishes their oral health goals!
