Our Patients Say

I highly recommend this practice for anyone who needs a tooth extraction or dental implant. Everyone in the office is professional and friendly. Dr. Goldstein took the time to explain the procedures, and ensure I was comfortable. I am usually very nervous about dental work. But with the use of nitrous oxide and local anesthesia, I experienced no pain at all. The practice is in my dental insurance network, so I received a discount off their usual rates, and only had to pay my co-insurance charges. Overall, it was a very positive experience.
Richard G.
