I have been a patient of Dan Pinar for about four years. I initially chose him because he is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry (one of the best in the U.S.), and also because he has Saturday hours every month, which is a great convenience. I have stayed with him because he is an outstanding dentist. He has techniques that make even novocaine shots painless. His careful attention to detail on the shape, color, and fit of the crowns and other restorations he has provided me means that when I open my mouth and smile, people will comment on how good my teeth look. Doug, the hygienist, does a thorough job of cleaning my teeth without using a Cavitron (ultrasonic water pressured-tool that for some people, like me, can be painful). All of the staff is attentive, friendly and professional. I actually look forward to my appointments!
