I had a new dental hygienist today, Ariana, she was excellent, informed and painless. It is always interesting to see how dedicated and knowledgeable the hygienists are. Their enthusiasm for their job and professional advice translates into a great experience. Dr. Badlissi runs an impressive dental facility with dedicated, knowledgeable staff front and back, who clearly prioritize the patient.. I have been a patient of Periodontal Associates for at least 30 years, and I continue to be impressed and appreciative.
Dr. Merchanthouse from my regular dentist's office Dr. Eager sent me with a referral slip for Dr. Katz to investigate 2 things:
1. to see if #30 is cracked to determine if my crown can be reused after a small cavity under the crown is filled.
2. to investigate if pain on the left side upper, lower and jaw joint is being caused by something dental related.
I felt like neither issue was answered but rather had an overall periodontal exam to determine future work not solve the 2 issues I was referred for.
Beyond my expectations - such knowledgeable and friendly staff! I avoided going to the dentist due to bad experiences and pain in the past, but after learning so much about my teeth and how important proper cleanings are, I will definitely keep up with my appointments (especially since they do such a great job making you numb, comfortable, and distracted from whats going on in your mouth). I honestly started to floss daily and even bought an electric toothbrush after my first visit. My mouth and I thank all of you!
