Dear Dr. Mandel, I’m writing to let you know that I am quite satisfied with my implants. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to eat my favorite foods, such as steaks, hamburgers, beef stews and fruits, such as apples, peaches and cantaloupes. The reason is the implants hold the bottom dentures in place firmly so … Continue reading Tracy M.

Dear Dr. Mandel, Until I found you, my dental problems were unsolvable. I had surgery many times and this never seemed to end the suffering for long. I was also lead to believe dentures would be unsuccessful, since the bone loss was so great I became disappointed, not knowing what to do. My husband told … Continue reading Evelyn

I could barely chew and I was embarrassed to open my mouth. My teeth and mouth took a sudden drop on the downhill slide when the upper right bridge fell out.

Came in yesterday for part 2/2 of root canal. Had Dr. Mandel perform it. I think he’s reduced my irrational phobia of dentists to a rational-but-slight unease. I kept getting paranoid that the local anesthesia was wearing off too early and he was super patient with me. They called me before the appt to let … Continue reading Stephanie S.
