Thank you, You Are Beyond My Expectations
I am one of the customers at South Shore Dental. I am a physician and have experience in trauma and microsurgery. Microsurgery is a branch of surgery, which requires precision, endurance and tenacity because you are working under a microscope most of the time. Almost 20 years ago, I lost my incisor tooth because of an accident. A dentist who was highly qualified treated me at that time. Although he fixed my tooth, my experience was so painful that I have not visited a dentist after that even though I had premium dental insurances. Consequently, I did not realize that I had developed a granuloma in the root of my damaged tooth and lost my tooth in January 2012. I did not want to seek help but my family persuaded me to find a dentist for cosmetic reasons. I gave in and decided to consult a dentist. However, I did my research and called multiple dental offices. I did not feel comfortable until I called South Shore Dental. The office manager gave me a lot of reassurance and I made an appointment. The next day, I went to the clinic and I felt everyone was very welcoming. I appreciated the individualized and focused attention. I met with both Drs. (Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman) and I knew that I was in good hands. Their professionalism and eagerness to help me were beyond any description. I felt like they were my family. They told me their plan of treatment. They not only wanted me to be in good shape but also they were very considerate about my budget. Dr. Dory wanted me to have a second opinion from another dentist. I followed his advice and went for an expert opinion. However, I found that my experience was not pleasant. I sensed greed and urgency at the other office. After that visit, I told Dr. Dory that I wouldn’t trust anyone else.
So far, I have gone through many procedures because my tooth was worse than we originally thought. Now I have my final implant. It looks and feels great! I have received many compliments on my new tooth! I can’t tell you how happy I am that I picked them.
Being a microsurgeon, I can tell you that Dr. Dory is an expert. He has precision, endurance and an aesthetic sense, which is a requirement for being a distinguished dentist. I trust him completely professionally and as well as personally. He took personal interest in my dental hygiene. Now I go to his clinic regularly for cleaning and all other procedures. He is so accessible in spite of his busy schedule. His entire staff is very friendly and personable. I have looked forward to every visit because it has always been a refreshing experience!
In the end, I wanted to thank both of them for helping me to heal from my past traumatic experiences. They are my dental health advocates as well my educators. Even though I am moving to another state because of my job, I’ll never forget how they changed my behavior about my own dental health. I am sure that their selfless attitudes have changed many lives just like me and will change many more in the future!
