    Excellent Doctor, team, and process. It is never fun to go see someone when your tooth is hurting and feels like your jaw is exploding.

They are first rate - highly recommended.

    I highly recommend Dr. Puterman and his staff. Although I was terrified, they made me feel comfortable before having extensive implant surgery and I am very pleased with the outcome. Dr. Puterman is excellent technically and he and his staff are friendly, caring, and are outstanding in what they do.
