Ratings for Dr. Robert Straga
I had an implant on a front tooth done by Dr Straga. The whole experience went very smoothly and I'm very happy with it! I was a little nervous going in but he has a very calm manner about him which put me at ease immediately. I'd recommend him to anyone!
I had an implant on my front tooth, the implant is great, very good work. Only comment is I was currently trying to quit smoking and I know obviously that smoking is not good for you so therefore was trying to quit. But I they were always reprimanding me about smoking! I also was only given one regular strength tylenol before the procedure but the procedure itself was good. It was after that there were concerns. I was told that there would be no swelling and I could go to work the next day. The next day my whole face was swollen. I called back and Dr Straga was not available but another dentist phoned in a prescription and told me to put a warm compress on my face. I did not have any issues with this, but they made out to sound abnormal. I can't believe that no one else that has a something drilled into the bone of their mouth never has swelling. They could have mentioned that it normally doesn't happen but it could and if so don't worry this is what you do. Nothing. No one phoned back to see if I was ok after that. They did say I was a very anxious patient, which I agree but at the end of the day for over $2000.00 for a very front tooth implant I don't care. I am paying you, so just do the job and quit giving people a guild complex. Will not go back
I am the type of patient who needs to understand "everything" before proceeding, and Dr. Straga and his staff were very patient and very thorough in answering all my questions. Now I'm a pro with my second implant - both times it was a piece of cake, with zero pain and no problems. Root canals I've had done in the past are far, far worse. Whenever the subject arises I recommend Dr Straga and have suggested my dentist send his patients there (He had referred me to another periodontist but I never felt comfortable and he seemed impatient with a "newbie") So glad I am with Dr.Straga (and Patty who does my cleanings!)
The work that was done was an implant, and tissue graft. He did a great job, and I was eating again in two days. The surgery itself was fast and not painful. Dr straga is personable and friendly. I would recomend him to anyone who has to go through with this expensive and seemingly overwhealming surgery. Thanks for making it so easy :)
What an amazing experience i had with Dr. Straga. The front desk always seemed distracted,and because of that were very short with me.When his assistant came out she was very welcoming. She seemed to remember me every time i was there and was able to calm my nerves.Dr. Straga always made time for my questions and explained everything to me in great detail. When it came to my surgery, (I had 2 implants placed with him) he was extremely gentle and apoligized for giving me the needles even though it was the best freezing i had ever had. His assistant asked me a few times during the surgery how i was doing and if i needed a break. The best thing was that after the surgery there was little, if any pain. I would recommend Dr. Straga to anyone of my family or friends.
Dr. Straga is an amazing dentist with great chairside manner. He and his staff took the time to get to know me as a patient. He made me comforable and secure with his treatment plan. He was very gentle with the freezing and during my grafting surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. He really takes the time for you!!!
