    Dr. Rafla made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole procedure. Julie reviewed everything with my insurance and explained how it works so I understood my financial obligations and what to hopefully expect from the insurance company in terms of coverage. The whole staff was very helpful in making me feel comfortable from the start. I highly recommend going to Dr. Rafla!

    I was referred to Dr. Rafla by my general dentist for an implant. It was a while since the last time I seen a dentist due to a previous bad experience 10 years ago. I was very anxious but from the consultation to the day of the implant placement and my post op visit Dr. Rafla's office made me feel so at ease.

    Dr Rafla is all about how many patients he can see as fast as possible. He spent about 15 minutes with me performing my gum graft and when I called one week later concerned about the continued pain and discoloration of my gums he couldn't even come in and do a post op check on my gum complaint. The hygenist is the specialist in this situation just as long as he gets paid. That's another thing watch your dental insurance claims when they arrive because they double bill.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
