Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Herma Ranola, DMD

Growing up in Guam, Dr. Ranola didn’t have access to the same quality of preventive dentistry we have today. As a result, she experienced several dental problems, including the need for a root canal. She decided to become a dentist, so she could help prevent children and their families from suffering oral health issues.

After receiving her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, she relocated to Florida, where she completed dental school at Nova Southeastern University in 2005. It didn’t take long for Dr. Ranola and her family to relocate back to Washington to establish a practice and build a family. Ranieu Family Dental was opened here in Vancouver in 2008. She is committed to continuing education and takes many advanced courses each year to enhance her skills to better serve the dental care needs of her patients and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience.

Dr. Ranola, her husband, Tai, and young daughter frequently travel to Jamaica with Zion International Care to provide health services to at-risk and disadvantaged residents. As an active family, the three frequently participate in local 5K runs.



Dr. Linda Ridder

Dr. Ridder  recently relocated to Vancouver in the Summer of 2017 with her three younger teenage children, to be closer to her eldest daughter who is an undergraduate at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Dr. Ridder became a dentist because she is dedicated to helping her patients achieve great health and a great quality of life. She believes that your wellness begins with a healthy mouth and strong healthy teeth, the gateway to your body.

She attained her Dental Doctorate from the prestigious  University of the Pacific's Arthur Duoni, School of Dentistry. She is a life long learner taking advanced Continuing Education Courses in order to provide the latest in comfort, care and cutting edge dentistry such as braces and dental implants.

She works closely with her patients to educate and teach in order to provide preventative and conservative care.
