Verified Patient Reviews
It's been a long journey, but I couldn't have asked for a better care or better result. Dr. Kaufman made it a pleasant, pain-free experience. The implants have made such a difference in the way I feel about myself. Thank you so much for giving me my smile back.
I was referred to Dr. Kaufman by my general dentist for periodontal work. He put me completely at ease and explained everything to me. I didn't feel a thing. He is a great Periodontist and I would recommend him to anyone.
I needed a bone graft and two implants. Dr. Kaufman was amazing. He's been doing this a long time and knows all the latest procedures. I was really apprehensive when I went in, but he made me feel at ease. By far, one of the most competent professionals I have seen.
