Patient Comments (1)
in Waltham, MA |
I live in Boston and drive twice yearly to Dr. Strait's office for cleanings and any dental work needed. He is a dedicated, talented, caring dentist who's primary aim is to assure that people keep their natural teeth, using the latest cutting edge techniques not used by any other dentists I have visited in my 75 years. His dedication to excellence is stellar. Not the least expensive care, but worth the cost involved to have healthy teeth. People come from Europe to visit Dr. Strait.
