18/06/14 5 5 5 5 I visited Dr.Salzmann for 2 extractions and 2 dental implants. I was very afraid of this procedure and was pleasantly surprised at the competency of DR. Salzmann, his kindness and caring and that of his upbeat, pleasant staff. I left with relatively little pain and after taking the medication he prescribed, slept well and am feeling good today. He called to check on my progress and he is gracious and caring--GOOD JOB & THANKS  Respond

14/01/14 5 5 5 5 I chose Dr.Salzman by reading comments about him. I was originally sent to see another Periodontist last year who was not able to work with two insurance companies I have and had terrible bedside manner! Dr.Salzman and his office staff were always very helpful and coordinated my insurances! I was seen on time for every appointment. Dr.Salzman explained everything to me about my procedure in a very detailed manner, answered all questions and was very compassionate. He called me the evening of my procedure to make sure everything was good. He is a very competent dentist. Very clean and pleasant office. My procedure turned out 110% better than expected. I am very pleased with the whole experience. I highly recommend Dr.Salzman to anyone looking for a great periodontist. Just because a procedure may not take for one person(as I read below)does not mean that the DDS. is incompetent-nothing is guaranteed in life! He is a warm, understanding and a gentle man! You will not regret seeing him.  Respond

24/12/13 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. Salzmann for over 20 years. I've found him to be a sensitive, professional and competent periodontist. As a teen, I was very sensitive about my appearance. My teeth and dental health was not where it needed to be and that caused me to be embarrassed. At no time did he make insensitive statements or make me feel any worse. He told me the facts, told me what I needed to do and let me know things would get better. Additionally, his staff is the best I've encountered in any office, not just dental!From the gentle competence of my hygienist, Monique, to the friendly service I receive from Giselle at the front desk, my experience in the office, after 20 years, continues to be a great experience. Keep up the great work and great service guys! God bless ya!  Respond

30/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Salzmann has been my Periodontist for over 14 years. Due to my family history of periodontal disease, I have had multiple surgeries to correct my issues. Prior to the procedures, he would explain in depth what was to be done and ask if I had any concerns or questions. After my surgeries, Dr. Salzmann would call me the following day to see how I was feeling and check on my progress. He is truly a compassionate and caring doctor. I also use his highly qualified staff for my routine teeth cleanings. His staff has always been courteous, knowledgeable and extremely proficient. Dr. Salzmann will always be my dentist of choice.  Respond

09/07/13 5 5 5 5 I am the Worst scared chicken there is. Today Dr. Salzmann completed my 5th Subephithelial grafth procedure. I finally made it to my last treatment because Dr. Salzmann definitively made it a comfortable and totally painless procedure every time. He is super gentle and experienced. His professional and down to earth demanor made me feel relaxed and confident each time. Dr. Salzmann is the doctor where I took my own child to be treated for his gums. His office went out of their way to accommodate his scheduling so he could complete his treatment in the short time my son had available, before going back to South Korea where he now lives. Dr. Salzmann has personally called us home to check on us after each procedure. If you want top of the line care and extra gentle care for your gums, do not hesitate to choose Dr. Salzmann.

01/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Salzmann did a great job working on my gums. He called me after each gum surgery (Four in all) to see how I was doing and even called me back within 10 minutes on his time off when I had a concern about a blood clot that developed after a procedure. Him and his staff are friendly and well-organized. I highly recommend Dr. Salzmann for anyone who has concerns with their gums.

21/02/13 5 5 5 5 I was treated by Dr. Richard Salzmann in September and October of 2012 for Periodontal Disease. Periodontal probe reflected deep pockets in both upper and lower quatrants with several readings very deep. This required two periodontal surgeries, involving Deep Root Planing & Scaling. Throughout both procedures he was reassuring me throughout the operations as to what he was doing and what I could expect to feel. He was Professional, Competent, Kind, Compassionate and HONEST!!! I'm a person who doesn't believe anything happens by accident but rather by divine design. I prayed that God would lead me to the right doctor to address my serious dental and periodontal issues. In my heart I know this doctor was a God Send for me. Doctor Salzmann is a fantastic Doctor who I would recommend without reservation to anyone in need of periodontal/Dental work. Under Dr.Salzmann's care & by the grace of God, today my gums are completely healed! The office staff was wonderful too.  Respond

19/02/13 5 5 5 5 I have been referring patients for implants and periodontal treatment to Dr. Richard Salzmann for the past twenty (20) years. As a referring dentist, I have found him to be knowledgeable, professional, honest, caring, putting the patients’ interest first and foremost and stands by any procedure he does. He is a result oriented practitioner and I would personally utilize his services if I ever needed to. My office protocol is to interview all patients referred to any specialist. They are asked to relate their experiences. In no case or the past twenty (20) years has a patient relate to me a negative experience. Their experience usually falls in the following description: professional, excellent, good, nice dentist, courteous, gentle, knowledgeable, caring and great staff. This is what I expect from a specialist and why he is part of my team.  Respond

19/02/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Salzman to have 4 implants done. After going to a number of periodontists for a quote, it was clear that Dr. Salzman was the most knowledgable and fair. I was comfortable that he would do the best job without overcharging me. My experience was a great one - the staff was friendly, the surgery went smoothly, and Dr. Salzman followed up with me until I fully recovered. His work was impeccable, but, it is his caring and dedication to his craft that makes me reccommend him to so many today.  Respond

11/02/13 5 5 5 5 I was very pleased with Dr. Salzmann and his staff. His Staff is definitely a reflection of his professionalism and kindness. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He is courteous, polite and very friendly. I first went to Dr. Salzmann a couple of years ago, due to gum disease, and I was very apprehensive about the surgery. After screening other periodontist and over looking their prices, I made my decision, two years later, to return to Dr. Salzmann and have him perform the surgery I needed. I am very pleased. I will continue my future appointments with Dr. Salzmann and I will recommend Dr. Salzmann to anyone in need of a periodontist. CV  Respond

07/02/13 5 5 5 5 On May 12th, 2012,I walked through the door of Dr. Salzmann's office to have an implant done.It was my first time w/a major dental situation & my nerves were on edge.However,the candor of Dr. Salzmann and of his entire office staff was a welcoming relief.I felt that I could trust them w/the gravity of my situation.It was not my first time at the office,as I have been a client of their practice since 2007.I have had 3 extraction procedures also performed by this doctor,& they have all been successful.I do not intend to change Periodontists any time soon,as my experiences with Dr.Salzmann have been second to none.I would recommend their services to everyone who needs them,as I can assure you that this office will take away the trembling from your hands as they gently guide you through the process.A process which can be,most times,filled w/an uncontrollable anxiety.I was just like that on all occasions mentioned,but on all of them,the doctor & his staff helped me shed the nerves & feel comfortable enough to proceed.

14/01/13 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend Dr Salzmann! He's placed an implant about 14 years ago for me which is working beautifully. He has also done a gum surgery and a root amputation, so I could save my tooth. He has been very kind, thoughtful, gentle and shown compassion, even calling me afterwards every time. His staff is wonderful and caring as well. I have also referred patients to Dr Salzmann for 20 years! Most, if not all, come back raving about their experience! Many times, he has chosen a much less intense procedure, or none at all, than other periodontists have recommended, even though he would not benefit from it. He has done free dentistry and unquestionably, always stands behind his work, and will retreat or redo at no charge if warranted. The first rating on his page must have been about somebody else, because he would definitely replace a failed implant and he is as honest and ethical a person could be. I trust him with my mouth and that of my patients! Dr Luciano Garcia, DDS, FAGD  See Responses

24/08/12 1 4 1 1 Never go here! He placed 2 implants in my mouth and we ended up having to get 1 removed. I already paid him but have lost confidence in him so I don't want him to do the second surgery! He will not even give me my money back for the 1 that he messed up so I could have another Dr do it. I refuse to go back to his office. He's a know it all and a crook!
