Dr. Faulkner is an excellent dentist. Everyone in his office is friendly and knows what they are doing. It's easy to get an "emergency" appointment; they always fit you in. I've had regular work, cleaning and a necessary crown and a root canal.
I really like Dr. Lafrenz. He is very skilled and does his best to make procedures pain free. He also is good about setting expectations and giving instructions for care afterwards. The staff is also excellent, in particular Neeta Patel who is my hygenist.
Although I had never consulted him, Dr. Lafrenz agreed to see me within an hour and a half of my call. He then expertly repaired a damaged filling. I will now switch to his practice and become a regular patient.
I am in the process of having my old fillings redone by Dr. Faulkner and I am very please so far with the results. My first reaction, after I saw my bottom teeth, was “why didn’t I do this before”. Can’t wait to have my top teeth done!
Cristina Graber was the dental hygienist I saw. She was so kind and explained everything she was doing. She did a great job. I only saw Dr Faulkner for a minute or two, he was very nice, but Cristina did all the work. Sorry Doc.
