Dr. Popil was really nice, so was the dental hygienist. I asked lots of questions and Dr. Popil took the time to answer them all. He was also very friendly and made me feel comfortable. The dental hygienist who was alsothe receptionist answered all of my insurance questions up front before the visit. It was nice that they had their own parking area, didn't have to worry about that.

I was escorted immediately to the dental chair upon arrival (on time), and was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Popli himself performed the dental hygiene (tartar removal), though the hygienist (Christina) did the polishing. Both are very thorough,professional and pleasant. They even asked what kind of music I preferred to listen to! Couldn't ask for a better hygiene appointment.

Did a very good job with both filling my cavity and whitening my teeth (Zoom -- in office). Dr. Popli and Christina his assistant) are both very good at explaining what they're doing and why, and have excellent "bedside manner". Myonly hesitation is that I was one of the 5% (his estimate) who had a nerve hit by the laser, so it was not pain-free; today I would have preferred an anesthetic. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that it's inevitable that there will always be exceptions, and that I was one of the unlucky ones, but at present I'm not sure the laser option is that far superior to the normal anesthesia. I will say, though, that the pain stopped immediately and I was back to normal, with none of the swelled cheek/lip, and no drooling!

Dr. Popli and staff are excellent to include his nice relaxing office! Dr. Popli repaired a tooth that my primary dentist recommended to have an oral surgeon pull it. I went to Dr. Popli for a second opinion my wife sawa news story about his laser dentistry so I looked him up and he recommended to save the tooth by repair and have a porcelain crown this was done in 10 days awesome!! Dr. Popli is very conservative and tries to keep your cost down by only doing recommended dental procedures while teaching you the pros and cons during his consult. Additionally, he does take time out of his busy schedule to return your call that's is a rare quality in the medical professions! Highly recommend Dr. Popli for all your dental needs!! David Herriott

Dr Popli has a calming personality and a great "bed side manner". I feel very comfortable having him work on my teeth and know that he is sensitive to my concerns/needs/well-being. I've had an old crown and two old fillings replacedby him and have been very satisfied with the quality of his work.

Dr Popli is very patient with questions and thorough with answers. I have congestion problems and have to stop him so I can blow my nose periodically - he was totally understanding of my challenges with that and would also giveme a "heads up" when he would need me to stay put for a certain time with a procedure (i.e. times when a congestion break would not work). So far I feel very pleased with both his skills and his "bedside manner".
