"We had an appt this week with Dr Edith Lin and she was wonderful. Very kind and knowledgeable. Her surgical assistant Tylena and admin Tesla were both very helpful as well."
"About as efficient and positive experience as one could ask for from a dr's office. Sofia at the front desk was positive and helpful, while Tylena was super clear in prepping me for each step, and Dr Lin did her thing fluidly and with some quality humor. Overall about as good as it gets for going to a dr!"
"Unbelievable! Dr. Lin was fantastic, reassuring, quick and explained everything in detail. Her staff, Tylena, and Grace where as wonderful and competent as Dr. What a great team, highly talented group of professionals. Thanks for your care!"
"Everything at Premier Periodontics went so smoothly and professionally! The staff, including Sofia, Tylena and of course Dr Lin were friendly and made me feel so comfortable during a not-so-comfortable procedure. Highly recommend!"
