What our patients say
I would like to compliment you on the excellent dental services I received from you and your staff on March 3rd, 2005. I have had two previous root canal procedures each performed by a different doctor. The treatment received in your office far exceeds my previous experiences. Your skills, bed side manner and professional but friendly demeanor put me at ease. Your explanation of the situation and the procedure was presented in a way I could easily understand. After meeting you and your staff I immediately had the feeling that this doctor really knows his business and is very good. That feeling was confirmed by the great job you did on an exceptionally difficult root canal procedure. I also appreciate the fact you were able to accommodate me on such short notice. The commitment you have made to quality service and the pride you have in your work is evident.
From the moment that reassuring Reina answered the phone, I found you and your staff to be warm, very professional, skilled, and a caring team. If a root canal must be done, then Advanced Endodontics is the way to go. You have earned my RAVE REFERRALS.
I wanted to thank you - yes actually thank you, for a root canal. When we spoke of the procedure, you told me it would be painless- I need to admit- I doubted you- but to my pleasure and surprise, it was painless. You and your staff were kind, professional and a pleasure to be with. Thank you so much for your kind and excellent care. My mouth (and my tooth) thank you profusely. Many, many thanks to you and your wonderful team.
May I extend my sheer gratitude in your dental and technical ability to save my tooth. It would be my pleasure to refer patients to your practice.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent care and expertise during my recent visit for my root canal. I would also like to extend a thank you to your receptionist who kept my somewhat "nervous" fiance at ease while he waited for me. You and your complete staff were very professional and personable. I would recommend you to anyone I knew who would need an endodontist.
I can report now that I experienced no pain-before, during or after the procedure. I will be glad to recommend you when an occasion should occur and, in fact, I have already done so in conversation with an acquaintance...You all succeeded in making the experience as pleasant as possible. I have also told Dr. Jensen of my appreciation for your skill and your kindness.
While a root canal is not an enjoyable experience, I was well pleased with my treatment. The dental procedure itself was very professionally handled, and surprisingly comfortable. What I especially wish to commend is the "people skills" of your entire staff. Everyone I dealt with from Dr. Alibhai to the receptionist impressed me. Keep up the good work! I will be happy to recommend your office to anyone who should ask.
Thank you for making my procedure quick and painless.
Thank you for your gentle and caring handling of a very painful situation. I appreciate your being there for me.
I would like to thank all of you for your patience and gentle handling of my first root canal! I phoned Dr. Rosenwald immediately to sing your praises. I have mentioned my experience, particularly the hand massage, to everyone! Wish you much success in Northwest- we're lucky to have you here!
I had a very positive experience with my 1st Root Canal thanks to your expertise. Dr. Baird referred me to the right doctor!
Thank you so much for taking such good care of me during my procedure yesterday. Your team is always so kind and compassionate - it means so much! Sending My Best.
I cannot thank you all enough for your hospitality and service. You made my experience as comfortable as possible and answered all of my questions. I will definitely refer you to my family and friends and if I ever have tooth trouble in the future, I'll come your way again!
Thank you for making my root canal appointment a positive and calm experience. You clearly have the gift of making people feel comfortable and confident in your presence.
I just wanted to thank Dr. Alibhai for his surgery yesterday. He is to be commended for his skill and kindness. When the Novocain wore off, I have no pain, only some slight tenderness. I did not need any Advil and slept great. Thank you all for the professional and caring treatment for an uncomfortable condition.
"You soar, while others merely waddle." You are the Leonardo DaVinci of root canals. Thank you for your very calming dental chair manner. Please thank your very able assistant Sokola for me. She was also very kind.
