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 did my gum graft and he took a personal caring to make sure everything went smoothly and that I understood how to contact him and exactly what the process would be. He is an excellent surgeon and just a genuinely caring an very skilled man! I highly recommend him!

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.

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.

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.

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 and his group are great. His expertise dealing with a tricky implant and his personable manner really helped put me at ease. He was very responsive to all my concerns. Flexibility and accessibility for appointment scheduling was just incredible. Best oral surgery I've ever experienced.

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.

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.

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.

Claudia A.

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.

David M.

The best in town. Dr. Puterman is highly-skilled and cares deeply about his patients. His staff is professional and his office is comfortable. Look no further!

Jason K.

Superb bedside manner and surgical skill

James H.

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.

Karen L.

Simply outstanding care. Aside from Dr. Puterman's considerable skills and professional knowledge- it is his level of caring that sets him apart from a typical practitioner. Yes all of the elements for a good experience exist - comfortable setting (his has a lovely vista to look upon), pleasant and helpful staff - but it is the immediate sense that Dr. Puterman cares about the concern that brought you to see him, helps you understand treatment options and will be there for support. Care matters.

Lis B.

Dr. Putterman and his staff are the best! I highly recommend this practice!

Peg S.

Thoroughly professional, but also warm and caring. Everything you could want out of a periodontist and his staff, from clear processes and thorough communication through the procedure itself to follow-up care. Cannot recommend enough.

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!

Laura F.

I do not normally give 5 stars. I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Puterman and his staff. They were so nice and professional. His staff was terrific and he is very skilled. I would highly recommend them!

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.

Kim K.

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.

Christy D.

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

Alexander F.

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.

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.

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!!!!!
