This LANAP surgery was extremely efficient, less painful and more comprehensive then I have ever had before and I have had two previous gum cleanings in NY! This is by far the best overall experience I have ever had!
Follow-up cleaning was on time. Explained additional things I needed to do. Completely explained the procedure for the proposed corrective work. I left feeling very well informed.
Overall excellent experience from the time I walked in, to the moment I left.
Our goal is to help improve a person’s quality of life by helping our patients eat normally without loose partial dentures or missing teeth.
