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.
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!
Dr Puterman and his staff are the best of the best! I had some very bad experiences with other dental professionals. I was nervous to say the least. My first meeting with Dr Puterman and his staff I knew I was in good hands. He has state of the art knowledge and equipment. He is a super friendly, positive person, and also very focused and serious about each unique situation. I feel so fortunate to have found him and his truly wonderful staff. You guys ROCK!
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.
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 performed a gum graft on 8 teeth and also an upper frenectomy. I was extremely anxious and had put off the grafting procedure for years until my dentist forced me to go for a consult Dr. Puterman has a gentle bedside manner and calmed most of my anxieties. The sedation during the procedure was amazing - I didn't feel a thing! I was also expecting a lot of pain during the recovery time but besides a lot of swelling and discomfort (not painful discomfort), it didn't hurt at all. Dr. Puterman's staff is top notch and super nice. Overall, I'm very pleased with the results - my gums look healthy and even. I highly recommend Dr. Puterman!! Marla and the other women in the office are all amazing and nice!
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.
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.
Dr. Puterman is one of the most professional and skilled physicians I have ever met. His staff treats patients with amazing care. Everything about his practice gives me complete confidence for all of the past and future gum and implant work. Nothing more needs to be said. The entire experience from consultation, procedures to follow-up is the best you will get!!!!!
My experience with Dr. Puterman and the entire office has always been nothing less then the best. I used to be afraid of gum surgery, and found that it's the most important part of maintaining a healthy smile, and your teeth, but it's been as pain-free as I could imagine. There's a wonderful team feeling at the office, staffed with very experienced pros. I've had several come surgeries, and to be candid it's less painful and annoying and having a feeling. But that's only because of the experience and professional approach that you find in his office.
If your dentist sends you to Dr. Puterman, know you will be receiving excellent care. Starting with Marla and all the front office staff: they are efficient and friendly, and they go way beyond normal duties to show that they care about each individual patient. Ditto for the assistants who explain every test and procedure, offer warm blankets before surgery, and make sure the patients are perfectly comfortable. Dr. Puterman is amazing…he has the skills and uses state of the art technology to make sure that treatment goes well. He is the kind of guy you will want to have as a friend, and clearly the top quality of his staff is directly related to his personality. I am sure I am not the only patient who actually looks forward to visiting this office!
Wow! I had an amazing experience at this office. My dentist had referred me to Dr. Puterman because my case was particularly challenging. Because of an infection, the bone around my front tooth was being lost. This meant that I needed to have the front tooth pulled out and a bone graft before my implant. I really wanted to do this under i.v. sedation because of the nature of the work that needed to be done. It's now 5 days later and I have had almost no pain. The i.v. sedation was great! I felt no pain during the procedure. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They put me at ease at all times. My insurance does not pay for any of this so it was nice to see that when I checked around, this office had very competitive prices.
I had gum/bone surgery by Dr. Puterman and am thoroughly pleased by the experience. I did not feel a thing which is the very best part. Dr. P. is not only highly skilled but has a great personality as well. He and his staff were so considerate and professional the entire time and explained everything along the way. I always felt that they were completely tuned in to my comfort.
I have been a patient of Dr. Puterman for over two years and have always found him and his staff very accessible and accommodating. You couldn't ask for a better dental experience. But most of all, his skill at resolving problems of periodontal disease and in installing implants is without compare.
My new dentist referred me to Dr Puterman after I asked him to put crowns on two implants another dentist had placed. I am so glad he did! Dr. Puterman discovered that the implants were not only misplaced but were exposed from the bone by about 40%! They were unsalvageable, had to be removed, the bone built up again, and new implants placed in the right spot. Through this whole ordeal, I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Puterman. He and his entire office are warm, friendly and very thorough. If you need an implant, or any other dental need, you can't do better than Dr. Puterman.
Dr. Puterman performed a bone graft surgery on my daughter last year. This was a very scary surgery for a 13 year old girl. The staff made her feel comfortable and less scared. They were very patient with her and therefore she wasn't as scared. Dr. Puterman was extremely gentle with her. His bedside manner was fantastic. He allowed me to stay with her throughout the procedure. The quality of his work is stellar! Her recovery was exactly like he said it would be. We had no surprises. He has continued to see her on a monthly basis to check on her progress. He always asks how she is doing and how she is feeling. He is always caring and positive with my daughter and me.
Dr. Puterman went above and beyond the norm in the care he provided for my adult daughter with epilepsy. I'm a physician-mom with a charity that works on quality health care for young adults with chronic conditions - Physician-Parent Caregivers. My standard is pretty high: he not only met all the benchmarks, he did it with warmth and smiles. What more can one ask for?
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.
I really could not recommend Dr. Israel Puterman's practice more highly. Unbelievable staff, facility, and bedside manner. I have a great fear of all things dental, and they made me comfortable and calm during my major dental procedure. I had great outcomes and I felt the staff really cared about me throughout the entirety of the treatment process.
I got two gum grafts done by Dr. Puterman. He was very accommodating and made the otherwise unpleasant procedure quick and as painless as could be. His staff is also very knowledgable about the procedures and were able to help me understand exactly what would be happening, payment options, etc... (They were also quite fetching). All in all, this is probably the best practice in the area.
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.
