"Very pleased with my tooth extraction. All was explained. Dr Ghadri and assistants were excellent 👍"
"This office provides terrific care. Liz is a great hygienist and Dr. Ghadri is a magnificent periodontist. All of the staff members are very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. It is easy to schedule appointments and the location is good. The only downside is parking is rather limited; although there is some street parking and an adjacent parking lot which has available spaces. I highly recommend this establishment."
"I really appreciated Dr. Ghadri’s conservative approach that saved my implant that I had been told must be removed by a difficult dentist. So happy I found Premier Periodontics and Dr. Ghadri."
"I'm a 70 yr old crone that got tooth extraction and bone graft on infected painful back lower left tooth this morning. Procedure was done with kindness and attention to pain. Dr Ghadri, Magi and Sandra were terrific. My hope is that the busy referral periodontist, Dr Ray Rohila, who was against antibiotics and a pain med as the tooth really hurt, got what needed to be done right.For some reason my gut says he was too busy for me the day I went in. I almost went for 2nd opinion but was assured Dr Ghadri would make sure it was right. Dr Rohila charged me a large sum of money and didn't even see me...just saw x-rays and had a person do some tests which made tooth hurt even more. Then referred me to Dr Ghadri. Post procedure antibiotic schedule was disappointing as involves 1am dose. Not a good time for a 70 yr old who has trouble sleeping. Pain med prescription does not do too much to help with pain I'm having, it does zombie me out. I'm hoping that by tomorrow the pain is less if not gone. If antibiotic schedule had been done with more empathy re time schedule, and pain med a bit stronger this would be a 5 star instead of a 4. Addendum: Dr Ghadri called me today and we worked on a better med schedule! He inquired about pain meds as well, today they seem to be working better. He also answered a couple of questions I had. He was so kind so I've changed my review score to a 5 for him and his staff. It restored my faith in this process. They really are excellent."
"I'm a 70 yr old cranky crone with cancer that got tooth extraction and bone graft on infected painful back lower left tooth this morning. Procedure was done with kindness and attention to pain. Dr Ghadri, Magi and Sandra were terrific. Dr Ghadri even called me today and we worked on a better med schedule for me. He inquired about pain meds as well, today they seem to be working better. He also answered a couple of questions I had. They really are excellent. I highly recommend this Dr and his staff, they are excellent, even with cranky old crones like me. Thank you so much."
