Below you can read what a large number of our patients have to say about their experience with us:

I was referred to Dr.P through my dentist upon discovering some gum recession.I was not a happy camper upon learning that I would need a frenectomy and a soft tissue gum graft, as I do NOT do well with dental work. I've had a ton of friends get gum grafts and each and every one of them told me just how miserable the recovery process was. As you might imagine upon this five star review, Dr. Penhaskashi far exceeded my expectations. The surgery was totally painless and the aftermath has been super smooth. I'm currently just one week in to recovery and already feel 85% back to normal. The staff is super friendly and accommodating - a miracle considering how insanely neurotic and annoying I must have been throughout the process. Should you find yourself in need of a periodontist, do yourself a favor and give Dr.P and his staff a visit. I promise you, you're in very good hands.

Absolute best dental experience I've ever had. Dr.P and his staff made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in. He let me know up front how serious my issues were but not to be discouraged because he was here to ensure we took care of it and stayed on top of everything. I always dreaded going to the dentist I now look forward to going and hearing what we are going to be doing to tackle the issues at hand. Thank you Dr.P I really appreciate your natural caring nature.

I was lucky enough to find Dr. Penhaskashi when I developed a gum infection. I was in danger of loosing a tooth but after the laser surgery, kind of a miracle occurred and almost 2 years later, Dr P. told me today, it's as if there had been no gum disease at all. The surgery itself was nothing; by that I mean, absolutely no pain or discomfort, during or after. I even went on my planned vacation out of the country 2 weeks after the procedure Dr. P. was very kind and straightforward and very professional. The staff was friendly and helpful. I really hope I'm done with gum disease, but if ever I needed him, I wouldn't hesitate ! I still come once every 9 months for cleaning and evaluation; no place else I'd rather come!

The entire office is so professional. Everyone knows their job and execute it perfectly. The procedure is explained clearly, step by step. All questions are answered. Dr. P is very personable, gentle and listens to your concerns. There was no pain involved in pulling my tooth as well as inserting the post. He is the BEST. Thank you Dr. P.

I have been going to this office for a number of years. Dr. P. has been great for all of the major work I have needed. The dental hygienists are enormously helpful not only in their cleanings but in all the things they have taught me in order to keep my dental hygiene up. And lastly the office staff are so great. While waiting we talk about books we are reading and they are so helpful every time I call. I strongly recommend this office for your dental and periodontal needs.

Saying you love the dentist and their staff is usually cause to check for a fever. After having laser periodontal surgery by Dr. P, for the first time in my adult life, I have "pockets" that used to measure up to 10 are now 2's and 3's!! It was amazing to be able to go back to work without cut gums and packing. When I left my follow up cleaning with Mary, I was doing the happy dance. I have never, I repeat never, left a dentist office happy! Dr. P has saved my teeth and smile :)

Quite honestly, just to have my dentist do an exam, I am shaking and a mess. So having to go to Penhaskashi's practice for a problem I am having escalated any nerves! The staff were wonderful, as was he! And what surprised me, was that I expected him to go to the extreme to fix the problem, but he first suggested a preventative and a specific routine to see if it would help the problem. Cannot be more thankful to my dentist for referring me to this practice. Mikki

Dr Penhaskashi and his staff are THE best. I've had to come to him for a variety of procedures over the years and have recommended him to others. He is very thorough and explains things clearly and have never had any complications or unnecessary follow ups to any of his care. And I'll also add that the doctor is the absolute best administering novacaine. (I'm needle-phobic, but he has an amazing touch). I'd give 6 stars if I could!
