I have a long and wonderful experience with Dr. Thomas Zahavi. Over the course of many years, I have had six implants and my wife has had one implant. All of our implants are successful with no problems. Dr. Zahavi has such superb technical skills and knowledge that I drive about 178 miles one way to take advantage of his talents. He speaks softly but clearly, remains calm, and thoroughly explains any procedure needed to correct your dental problem. He answers all questions without hesitation. His technical staff is simply great. Dr. Zahavi gives me a feeling of confidence and safety. I am pleased to most highly recommend Dr. Zahavi to take care of your dental requirements.

I had my first root canal at age 13 and since then have seen many dentists and oral surgeons over the past 50 years. By far Dr. Zahavi and his office staff have been the most professional and caring. He recognized my fears, walked me through procedures (2 implants) step by step and followed up each time with a phone call the next day to see how I was. Not only do I have complete confidence in his skills, but I am very appreciative of how I cared for by Dr. Zahavi himself and each person I encounter in the office.

My consultation with Dr. Zahavi and Dea was very touching for me. I previously had not visited an office that demonstrated such patience, kindness, and respect for me; and also, an office that donated their time so graciously and expressed themselves with such candor. I felt welcomed and valued.

I'm very pleased with my implant experience with Dr. Zahavi. The staff made me feel comfortable from diagnosis to completion and it was clear to me that Dr. Zahavi is an outstanding clinician. I would recommend Dr. Zahavi and his staff to any family or friends that might require periodontal expertise.

My experience, and interaction, working with Dr. Zahavi and his staff was nothing short of relaxed, and re-assuring. The doctor’s patience, and thorough explanation of the work and procedures to be performed, were comforting. And his work was excellent! Without question, I would recommend Dr. Zahavi to anyone considering the need for this type of dental specialty work.
