First, things first.To me pain is important. Every time i go to the Dentist. I am in pain for at least a week or more(my teeth have hurt for yrs.) So i decided to try a new dentist. Boy, was i surprised and delighted.The staff is the most professional and knowledgeable to deal with. I feel after a visit that they really cared about me and all my dental needs/ asked question and even listened to my concerns. Dr. Friedman, saved one of my teeth after other,s would not even try. and number one, as i have stated no pain.This has been a good experience and I look forward to going to the dentist.( did i just say that!) thanks again to Dr Friedman and his wonderful staff.
