"I was treated for an implant by Dr Wattimena assisted by Ashley. I had been dreading the procedure, but the level of their care, professionalism and bedside manner made the whole experience almost pleasurable. I practically fell asleep in the chair! Thank you! I will refer anybody who asks to you for periodontics services."



"I was very pleased with Dr. Wattimenas service in dealing with the procedure for my implant, the staff and front desk are top notch, I would certainly recommend them for anyone seeking implant procedures."



"Shawna is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever been to without her my gums would be bleeding and diseased. Who knows where I’d be , she is awesome."



"I just wanted to publicly thank Dr. W and his team for taking care of me today. I needed the dreaded deep cleaning. Let’s be real here. Who looks forward to going to the dentist/ Periodontist? I sure didn’t. However, Dr. W and his team were professional, personable and efficient. The hygienist, Shawn, not only did a great job, but clearly explained how to prevent further problems. Much appreciated. Christina efficiently handled the insurance paperwork which can be a nightmare . I would definitely recommend the office to my friends. However, I would also say, “ floss your teeth…or else!”"



"Very welcoming front desk, doctor Allan and his assistants are friendly and highly care for patients with high level of technical skills. I am completely satisfied with the work of doctor Allan Wattimena and his staff."
