I have been taking my 13 year old son to Dr. Puterman for a year now to address a gum issue that hasn't resolved itself, most likely because my son isn't brushing enough in the problem area. He came highly recommended from our dentist and surpassed our expectations. Beyond being great at what he does, Dr. Puterman has been super kind and patient and doesn't charge us for most of our check-in visits - and he has put off surgery again and again in hopes that my son can get his act together and thereby avoid the need for surgery. His office is modern and lovely and his nurses are very friendly. And when I had to cancel an appointment because I needed surgery, his office sent me flowers, an act so kind it moved me to tears.

Very caring, professional and up to date knowledge and techniques. Office immaculate and excellent staff. I don't think you can get better care anywhere.

My experience with Dr. Puterman was incredible. He and his staff are thorough and make sure you are comfortable and understand everything you need to know about your procedure. On top of it they are available at anytime to help you out, even outside office hours

Dr. Puterman and his team are fantastic. After suffering through a failed root canal I was referred to see Dr. Puterman. He gave me options with clear pros and cons so that I could make the best decision. Ultimately, we decided an implant was the best path forward and he and his team pulled together a detailed treatment plan. Throughout the process his team helped answer questions, filled out my insurance forms and checked in to make sure I was recovering comfortably. He and his team really are a first-class operation.

Cannot praise too highly the experience on my initial consultation from scheduling to reception to informed and empathetic handling of my dental needs by all personnel in the office. Dr. Puterman was recommended both by my regular dentist and by an endodontist.

My experience: well....in one word...fantastic! Dr. Puterman is wonderful. And his staff is just as wonderful. I came to him with a twice failed root canal I'd spent several years trying to diagnose. He helped me to understand what had happened and to make a treatment plan. I chose to have an extraction to allow the area to heal. And then I had an implant. Dr. Puterman made this experience as easy as it could be and I'm thrilled with the results. Thank you Dr. P! I will miss you all.

Dr. Puterman is extremely skilled and has a unique ability to connect with his patients. We have been very satisfied with his care for myself and both my daughters. I highly recommend him.

Can I give him a sixth star? DR Putterman and his staff are the most professional, caring and thorough in supporting the needs of patients than any that I have ever encountered in any medical specialty. I have had many operations without concern but feared periodontal surgery, however, I have had a nearly painless ecxperience under the concerned and capable hand of Dr Putterman. His pre-op and post op instructions are clear and thorough, spoken and in writing for review. The variety of methods applied to make surgery and post surgery comfortable and healing rapid are unique and apprarently very effective. Dr Putterman is the man to see.

Despite numerous problems with my teeth,Dr. Puterman has always done an excellent job keeping my teeth in excellent shape starting with my first visit some years ago.He was initially recommended to me by 2 different, highly rated dentists when I needed a dental implant procedure. He has a great bedside manner and never rushes you through a visit. I have received many thanks from people to whom I recommended him.

Dr. Mitchell D.

Dr Puterman and his staff are terrific. They are kind, gentle, patient, thorough and addressed my anxiety without diminishing or dismissing my feelings...everything you would want in a visit where you're discussing your health! I'm very grateful for these skilled compassionate professionals!

D. Lombardi

I was most impressed with the exceptionally high level of professionalism with both Dr Puterman and his team. Everyone from the front desk to Dr Puterman cared about me every step of the way. It is never fun to have your mouth wide open with drilling but the care and attention given during the procedure was world class. They treated me well and I must say, I have no fears in returning and in recommending Dr. Puterman and his colleagues. Look no further for a periodontist.

Stephen P.

So far the tooth extraction and prep work for dental (molar) implant has gone as I was led to expect. Recovery timing is also proceeding as predicted. I appreciate the expert work, guidance for recovery, and other support.

Robert C.

I just had a procedure with Dr Puterman this am... I am beyond impressed with everything about this office and the experience was amazing. I was extremely nervous because I have had very little dental work but Dr Puterman and his staff put me at ease. The procedure was completely painless and I wish I had done it sooner!! State of the art office-highly recommend.

Chelsea C.

Dr. Puterman's skill and personable manner put me at ease whether it is a simple checkup or involved procedure. His office and schedulers are tremendously accommodating.

M. Stern

I received all around excellent quality and courteous professional care. i recommend Dr. Puterman without qualification.

Joe S.

Dr. Puterman is not only talented but friendly. HIs staff is delightful, caring and helpful.

Sandra D.

I had to have a very complicated procedure, that had been brewing for a long time because one of my dentists didn't catch it early enough. Finally a new dentist looked at it and said it was too complicated for her to do, so she HIGHLY recommended that I see Dr. Puterman. I was also very uneasy about having anything painful done. I met Dr. Puterman and was blown away by his calm personality. He took the time to explain all of the options to me. I opted for sedation because of my fear and am thrilled that I did. I quietly slept through the procedure and never felt a thing. This was surprising since he had to pull my front tooth. Now, six hours later I have had no pain at all. I haven't even taken any pain meds. The overall experience was AMAZING! Much better than I expected. On top of that when I got his bill it was way lower than I expected. The icing on the cake I guess... I loved the staff because they put me at ease and were very professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Puterman to anyone I know. If you need this kind of stuff done I would not go to anyone else!

Shal J.

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.

Selma K.

Very professional and fully discussed the options. Follow up visits were excellent.

Sam K.

I am what you might call high on the dental phobia scale, and I recently had a gum graft with Dr. Puterman. Although I was shaking from the time I entered the office, Marla did an excellent job of putting me at ease and clearly explaining all that at I needed to know about the procedure coming up and what to expect after. After taking me back to the dental chair Dr. Puterman and his assistant Stephanie were incredibly compassionate and patient with me, making sure I was ok every step of the way. Dr. Puterman took the time to explain before, and during the procedure what was being done, and strove to keep me calm and comfortable at all times. I can't thank Dr. Puterman and his entire staff enough for their kindness, compassion, professionalism, and superior care!

Stefanie V.

Cannot say enough good things about Dr Puterman and his entire staff. They are literally saving my teeth. They are punctual, caring, thorough and amazing to work with. Highly recommend.

Lisa K.

Dr. Puterman's practice encompasses everything one could hope for in a doctor's practice:an extremely kind and personable staff and a doctor who must rate top notch in bedside manner, clinical proficiency and any other positive criteria one would ascribe to a periodontist. My gum graft was an almost totally painless procedure with a result better than I or my referring dentist ever hoped for.I can see why he got such rave online reviews as well as making the outstanding doctor's list in the Washingtonian, Checkbook, and other publications.

Mitchell D.

Terrific periodontal care with special attention to implants and a sense of humor to boot! I appreciate the first rate service from Dr. P!

The review is long-overdue! I highly recommend Dr. Puterman. First of all, his office staff are outstanding--thoughtful, accommodating, and kind. They take the time to meet with you to make sure that you fully understand the procedures and any costs involved. Also, I had to cancel two follow-up appointments due to snowy and icy road conditions and they worked with me to accommodate my crazy schedule and work hours. I first saw Dr. Puterman for advice on a root-canal tooth that had cracked and was pulled by my regular dentist, who told me that the tooth was also infected. Dr. Puterman assured me that the tooth was not infected and he provided guidance as to the type of implant that would work best in my situation. I was greatly confused in trying to decide between a zirconium or titanium implant, and extensive internet research was only making the situation worse. Also, I knew that after having the tooth pulled that I did not want to be awake for the implant. Dr. Puterman spent a great deal of time with me during the consultation portion of the visit, listening to all my concerns and addressing all my issues. He is warm and personable and has a great bedside manner. Dr. Puterman's operating facilities and the care they took in preparing me for surgery made me feel confident that I had made the right decision in opting for sedation. I awoke feeling rested and peaceful with a new implant and bone graft, and was escorted to my friend's waiting car in a wheelchair by one of his assistants. They also provided detailed instructions on steps I should take to improve my recovery, and I received a personal call from Dr. Puterman himself to make sure everything was okay. Last but not least, the office is beautiful, it has the latest technology...and a great view if you need to meditate, as I did, to alleviate any unwarranted anxiety. Dr. Puterman himself is skilled in what he does and he stays on top of the latest developments, which gave me confidence in choosing him to do my implant. If I ever needed another implant or periodontal work, I would not hesitate to go back .

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. Dr. Puterman did an excellent job with a difficult procedure. His staff is excellent, attentive, and tenacious with insurance companies (a big plus in my book). They are first rate - highly recommended.

George P.

In addition to being technically excellent in oral surgery,he is also kind,thoughtful, and conscientious.

Lawrence R.

My dentist affectionately calls me a dental wuss (I don't like mouth pain). Dr. Puterman put all my fears of discomfort to rest. He is simply an amazing Periodontist. He rates a 10+ in my book. If I ever need another implant, Dr. Puterman is the man. Many thanks doc.
