Dr. Chopra performed a very professional and exemplary job with 2 dental implants. Would highly recommend. Rosie was by our side making everything run smooth and efficient with a wonderful "chairside" manner and sense of humor. Implants are a lengthy procedure but well worth the wait.Maria B
I have been coming to this office for many years. It was hard to get used to the new décor, but now I can appreciate it. I have always felt the staff was friendly and competent. The techs and drs. were personable and knowledgeable in their fields. As long as I can drive I intend to continue at this facilitySandra A.
I am very impressed with Dr. Penhaskashi's knowledge and honesty addressing the problem with the dental work that needed attention. I liked his professional opinion and the way he addressed the issue of a possible crown. He also recommended a night plate for sleeping which would help not to putt added pressure on the teeth and to prevent grinding.Juan M.
