    I had a wonderful experience when I had to have my wisdom teeth pulled. Dr Buca was very thorough in his explanation of the process, carefully numbed my jaw and quickly pulled the teeth that needed to be extracted. He also has a caring and wonderful staff that is able to accommodate scheduling needs and sooth a nervous patient! Dr Buca also called me at home that evening to make sure I was comfortable and doing well. I will continue to see him and his staff for routine care and anything else that may come up!

    My wife and I have been going to Dr. Buca for a few years now. He is by far the best dentist we have been to. Lately I needed a crown replaced and he was able to replace it in a single visit with state of the art dentistry. Also he has great staff that makes you comfortable and relaxed. We highly recommend his office to anyone needing a great dentist.

    Dr. Buca is very thorough and professional. He and his friendly team make you feel very comfortable from the moment you walk into the dental office. He must have magic hands, because I didn’t feel a bit of pain during the procedure to have some fillings done.

    Dr. Buca's office is outstanding. Every one is kind and professional. The dental work is superior. I was losing my dental insurance and they accommodated me to get two crown replacements done in two days. The crowns are beautiful! Dr. Buca is very kind and humorous. It is "almost" a joy to go to the dentist.

    I recently had a crown replaced with Dr. Buca. His attention to detail and care both during and after the appointment is so genuine:) He calls to check up on me the evening after a procedure. Our entire family of four have been going there for over 6 years and appreciate the care/ concern of the whole staff. Bonnie is our hygienist and she's the best! Thank you to Dr. Buca and staff for the wonderful care.

    My wife and I have been under Dr.Buca's care for approximately one year. During our first visit we were given a full exam and a treatment plan was set up based on priority and insurance limits. Dr.Buca explained all the details and we agreed on a plan of action. Dr.Buca and his staff have always been very professional and very friendly. The quality of their work is top notch. We highly recommend Dr.Buca and his staff.
