The visit involved treatment by two different dentists. there was no initial explanation of the process. The first dentist, not Dr, who I assumed was giving the treatment because it had been indicated to be relatively minor "packed" something,not very gently and seemed to take a log time. Then Dr. L took over and the rest of the treatment s satisfactory..

I've Been going to Dr. L for a year now and I learned more about health, my teeth, treatment and general knowledge on how the teeth and nerves are connected that I travel 1 half hour just to get serviced. AndI have recommended his office to all of my friends and they were happy too. His team is awesome, organized, friendly and very informative with ever step and procedure. They're the best in my book!

This was my first time visiting this office. I must say I was blown away on how thorough, friendly, and knowledgeable the ENTIRE staff was. I had not been to a dentist in over 13 years, so I was expecting theworst. After taking X-rays (which took all of 5 minutes MAX) everything looked good. Lawerance Lesperance, DDS was extremely friendly and had awesome bedside manner. I moved over to where the tough work had to be done, a deep cleaning with Joan. She was so thorough and so friendly, I could not believe I was sitting in the chair for over an hour and a half. It flew by. With all the cleaning that needed to be done, she was able to knock most of it out ( I knew it would be two appointments) and just kept explaining to me everything she was doing. She was always looking at my X-Rays to make sure she got every hidden piece of built up calcium. I can't say enough kind things about this office. I never thought I would be excited to go back to a dentist, but I really am. The difference was instantly noticeable. Thanks to the entire staff and keep up the kind work!

Dr. Lesperance was thorough and explained every step of the process. I had to get a new crown and he was gentle, precise, and effective. He guarantees the crown for LIFE - which is pretty amazing and unheard of! He was patient and personable as well.

My experience was pleasant from the staff to the office ambiance to Dr. Lesperance's likeable personality and thorough attention to my dental needs. I felt at ease in-spite of my nervousness towards dental work in general. Parking was ample,there was no wait in the reception and the office rapport was congenial and professional. I won't have the pre dentist jitters ever again.

I have a strong gag reflex which means I need frequent breaks. Dr. Lesperance and his staff are very patient and considerate of their patient's needs. Each procedure is explained in detail. Pricing is fair and reviwed in advance of anyprocedure being scheduled. Kudos to all the staff. Highly recommend.

I am a new patient, and I was late to my first visit, however they still rushed to not let me wait but a few minutes. Routine was relatively quick and painless. Very professional and friendly staff, along with a relaxing-laid-backambiance; It definitely will make it easier to keep consistent with my routine visits. Thanks again.

I had a deep cleaning and two fillings replaced. The office scheduled them to take place on the same day. I am glad they did since I needed to be numb for both procedures. It was comforting to know that thestaff was extremely concerned about how I was feeling through the entire process. This was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. Everyone dreads going to the dentist when you need a procedure done, but I won't delay getting anything done knowing how well I was treated.

Dr. Lesperance is an excellent dentist. I have had tons of work done by him, and have never had a problem. I have referred many others to him who were pleased with his work, and if there was a problem hewas willing to fix it. He is very expensive, but I trust him like no other, His bedside manner leaves something to be desired, but that is generally because he is communicating so much with his assistant. Still, he is friendly, if impersonal.
