Dr. Zina and her staff are amazing. I felt very informed about the procedure before hand. They even gave me tips to heal and recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Overall, a great experience and very happy I chose this practice for my wisdom teeth removal.

This office is wonderful- very clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. Dr. Zina Gotlieb is so nice and personable, and she spent more time counseling and answering questions than I have experienced at any other dental office. And she did not try to push any unnecessary treatments. I highly recommend this practice!
