All dental work is almost always done in a timely and efficient manner.
Dr. Willardsen performed a very professional and exemplary job with 2 dental implants. Would highly recommend. Rosie was by our side making everything run smooth and efficient with a wonderful "chairside" manner and sense of humor. Implants are a lengthy procedure but well worth the wait.Maria B

I am very impressed with Dr. Ferra's knowledge and honesty addressing the problem with the dental work that needed attention. I liked his professional opinion and the way he addressed the issue of a possible crown. He also recommended a night plate for sleeping which would help not to putt added pressure on the teeth and to prevent grinding.Juan M.

Only, “see your professional oral health care provider.” Because each problem is different, each needs to be addressed in person on an individual basis.
