EXCELLENT DOC! Great staff, clean office and just perfect from beginning to end! Very thorough and knowledgeable and overall a perfect place to go for dental issues. Very reasonably priced compared to all others! Dr. Franklin is wonderful, nice and knows what he is doing. He has performed 2 sets of dentals procedures on me, years apart and it was a pleasant surprise how little pain there was. He also is incredible at giving shots! All periodontist are NOT created equal! This one is a keeper!

Dr. Franklin is THE BEST. About 20 years ago my dentist recommended him to handle delicate gum issues for me as they come up. And for many years at my (excellent) primary dentist's recommendation, I alternate my quarterly dental checks/cleaning between Dr. Franklin and my dentist so they can compare notes and discuss treatment as necessary. The best of both worlds is to have two outstanding dental professional practices working together on my behalf.

Dr. Franklin is awesome. I had major gum issues and he did a fantastic job cleaning beneath my gum line and getting rid of infection. He explained my treatment plan including cost and he was professional and genuinely cared about me as a patient. I see him regularly for follow up visits and will continue to do so. Del St. Pierre

I've been going to Dr. Franklin for several years, and I would say he is the best. He is kind, gentle, thorough, and he always advises the best solution. I feel so comfortable and reassured when I visit Dr. Franklin's office that I will receive top notch advice and treatment. If you're looking for the best periodontist, Dr. Franklin is your man. Much like Dr. Franklin, the entire staff will make you know, you are in the right place.
