Periodontics surgery is not a lot of fun, but this staff made the experience pleasant. Friendly, caring, professional. Dr Puterman is terrific. Very conscientious, good bedside manner. He said he would follow up after surgery, and did -- even interrupting his vacation to check on me. Highly recommend.
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?
Have had several visits and procedures over the past 2 years. Everyone, front desk, assistants and techs as well as Dr. P are all so wonderful, patient, and caring. I have a terrible gag reflex and a small mouth and they all worked patiently and carefully with me to make sure everything went smoothly. The other big plus is Dr. P working seamlessly with my Dentist, orthodontist and Endodontist to make a plan of action, to communicate often, to update the plans and make sure each of the specialists and I know what to expect and that all are on the same page throughout the whole process. Definitely gives me peace of mind and confidence. Thank you.
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!
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.
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 a compassionate physician. He goes above and beyond for his patient's care and comfort. He extracted four wisdom teeth and removed gum tissue to perform crown lengthening. One of my tooth extractions was very close to the nerve, so he performed a CAT scan to be certain removal was possible without damaging the nerve. His staff was excellent at explaining the caution Dr Puterman was requiring. Dr Puterman was amazing at sharing the information with me and reviewing the scans personally to reassure me I was in good hands. My recovery was as pleasant as anyone could expect with no complications. I did experience significant pain in my jaw from an impacted tooth combined with the removal of an existing cavity filling. This occurred three weeks after surgery. After medicating around the clock to control the pain for over a week, I emailed Dr. Puterman and my dentist to seek advice. I was currently out of the country. Dr Puterman was amazing with his response time and advice with controlling the pain and forming a plan for when I got home to examine the site. It was established that I was experiencing refered pain from a tooth requiring a root canal. Almost a month later, the pain began to subside, a root canal was performed and crown placed and all was better. His staff is professional and courteous. I whole heartedly recommend him.
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.
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.
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 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!!!!!
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.
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 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.
I give Dr. Puterman and his staff 5-star rating for the following reasons: clean, relaxing environment and extremely welcoming staff; no waiting period once I stepped into the office; appointment was scheduled promptly after initial contact; friendly and knowledgable office staff and assistants; professional and warm atmosphere. Love Dr. Puterman & Marla!! Looking forward to my follow up appointment.
I would encourage everyone to have dental implants if you have been recommended to have them. I had three teeth removed and the bone graft done in one visit! I FELT NOTHING! It was 100% pain free. Dr. Puterman was so supportive. He is caring and funny. What a great guy! I was so embarrassed about my teeth. I knew they were in bad shape but Dr. Puterman put me at ease. He told me that I have nothing to worry about, and that he could fix me up as good as new. I had an awesome experience.
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.
