Trusted, Proven

All are very friendly and helpful at this office!! I had many questions that were all answered and my worries lessened. My mom came with me and she said she’s never been to a more friendlier office as she was asked multiple times if she needed anything as a coffee or water. The doctor is wonderful and did an amazing job for my gum surgery. Thank you.

Had an issue and they called me back and took me in the same day. Turned out not to be a tooth issue but they were thorough and pleasant. My primary healthcare couldn’t see me but Northeast Periodontal Specialist could.

Dr Rafla and his staff are nothing but professional. He is a talented oral surgeon, did implants for my Front teeth. He uses the best anesthetics, I did not feel anything when he worked on me. lf you use him for anything you won't regret it. Follow up care is the best also. His staff is top notch.
