I had three implants by Dr. P. It took almost 2 1/2 years to complete the whole procedure and it was a pleasant experience. It was explained to me thoroughly before the treatment and the staff were well prepared. I will certainly recommend Dr. P to my friends who needs implants.

Hatsue N.

I have nothing negative to say about Dr. P’s office. Dr. P is a sweetheart and the office staff are wonderful. My experience having the implant was great.

Sally G.

Dr. P has always been courteous in addition to being business-like and friendly. He always has a smile on his face and presents excellent disposition.

Marilyn K.

I spent two days trying to conjure up an unpleasant moment while in your care…couldn’t do it. I did remember that one day I was late which I know caused a delay in Dr. P’s schedule but nobody was upset that I was late when I arrived at the office. Tina and Geraldine were only concerned that I was okay. How could a person not feel special? Thank you Dr. P!

Joni W.

Kiana N.

As usual, everyone are pleasant and efficient. My only complaint is that you are not located in Santa Barbara

Jeff. G.

Office staff was tremendous! Kindness is extremely important in an office where patients may be a bit frightened. Dr. P is outstanding, his good reputation has been noted in other dental offices. He thoroughly explains all procedures and takes the time to listen to patient concerns; eye contact is important. I had other doctors that just look into a computer screen. I would recommend Dr. P to anyone needing periodontal care.

Ellen R.

My girlfriend Frances G. recommended Dr. P to me; I am thanking her all the time. We both have heard and spoken to friends that have had problems with their implants and I have not had any problems with mine. My visits were pleasant, everyone in the office are very courteous and helpful. The staff knows about insurance policies and I was able to save money on some procedures. Above all, I love Dr. P, he does a great job. He saved one of my teeth from getting an implant and followed up on my implant until the second year! I was impressed! He is also very kind, loving, and funny!

Wendy S.

My complaint is that I don’t have one! Being a ‘dental chicken’, Dr. P’s office has been a blessing. I look forward to seeing my ‘dental angel’ Barbara. Dr. P has treated me with such compassion, respect, and patience. Dr. P’s staff are the best!

I have been coming for periodontal cleaning in this office for many years. I am always pleased with the results and I am particularly grateful to Mary for keeping me from losing any more teeth.
