Great job done, even my wife, General Dentistry practicener agreed.
Good experience as far as I can say.
Dr. Rubinoff did a perfect job on my implant. I couldn't be happier.
Dr. Rubinoff and his staff were great!
My mom is a retired dentist that referred patients to Dr Rubinoff for decades. When I needed a gum graft for recession on multiple teeth she didn't hesitate to recommend him without reservation. Now that I have finished five grafts on both sides of my mouth, I can clearly see why. The before and after pictures are remarkable. If you're looking for the best, stop looking.
I would not hesitate to come back here for future periodontic work.
I felt very comfortable and taken care of throughout the entire process- pre and post procedure. Dr. Rubinoff was very informative and took great detail with everything.
Dr. Rubinoff is an excellent Periodonist who has provided me with exceptional care since 2007. I wouldn't have it any other way. The dental hygienist, Dennis is GREAT! and has a wonderful personality.
Dr. Rubinoff and his staff were very friendly and professional. My experience with the front desk staff was very easy and pleasant, and they worked with me through some insurance changes. His assistants were very friendly and warm. I was nervous about oral surgery but he made the procedure very streamlined and easy. Dr. Rubinoff is also the first dentist to ever make me laugh in the dentist chair! Very friendly and professional dentist and staff! Glad to come back to this...
I have come to this office on two separate occasions for tissue grafts and have had positive experiences from beginning until end. Not to mention, great results with both procedures. Gum grafts are not fun but this office makes it as pleasant as they possibly can. Thank you to Dr. Rubinoff and his staff!
My personal experience with Dr. Rubinoff was the best I have ever had. NO PAIN and great results!
I have had issues with providers in the past. But for as long as I've seen Dr. Rubinoff I've never had anything but a positive experience with him. I also feel very confident with his staff.
As a patient here for 4 years, I am always pleasantly treated by Dr. Rubinoff and his awesome team with the best service with smiles! They continue to show genuine interest and truly care about their patients. Thank you!

All of my experiences in the chair have been positive. Dr. R. has improved the condition of my teeth significantly and helping me to maintain my original teeth. The equipment and technology is state of the art. The technicians and office staff are personable and helpful.
Dr. Rfbinof was exceptional in repairing my gum that was causing annoying irritation and pain for several years. He was extremely thorough in treating me and after 4 sessions my pain and irritation has been completely removed. I would recommend him to others.

Dr. Rubinoff made me feel comfortable and at ease. Answered all my questions and made me feel like i was the most important patient. My teeth and gums were pretty bad. He took care of them and now they are healing great. He is the only Periodontist I would ever see. I highly recommend him to all. He truly is the "Top Gum".
