Outrageously High Rates
The office continually increases it’s already high costs, and is less patient/people-friendly, more of just a business rather than healthcare.

Excellent performance by Dr. Puterman
I have had three procedures in the past year with excellent results. Dr. Puterman if informative, efficient and performs his work with an attempt to minimize patient discomfort. His staff are well organized, very efficient and exceptionally polite. Everyone in this practice reflects a very high level of professionalism in everything they do. I would definitely recommend Dr. Puterman and this practice.

I was guided to Dr. Puterman as one of just a few people who could resolve a problem with teeth right in the front of my mouth that had developed over many years. He did an amazing job both technically and in responding to my many questions and concerns. His office staff was uniformly efficient and considerate and followed up via phone calls and texts when necessary. Dr. Puterman did, as well, which I saw as an indication of a doctor who truly cares about his patients. The costs involved for the procedures were unfortunately multiples of the allowances provided by my employer-sponsored dental insurance, costs that I fear many people would not be able to afford. That financial reality of our health care system generally was the only downside of my experience. Dr. Puterman provided a superior solution to a complicated and cosmetically sensitive problem, for which I am very thankful.

A very caring professional
My implant was pricey, but it was worth it. I was very pleased with the final result and and the process was painless and with no big problems. When a little problem arose, Dr. Puterman took care of it right away. He was accessible at all times, explained everything patiently, and was always concerned about my welfare.

Great periodontist
I saw Dr. Puterman for a tooth implant. Having a tooth pulled and going through the implant process was a little overwhelming. Dr. Puterman explained everything to me. He was very professional and, in my opinion, very good at what he does. He alleviated any anxiety I had and the option of being sedated during the procedures was a big plus. His whole staff, from technicians to receptionists were the most professional, friendly, and helpful staff of any medical health center I have been to.

Very satisfied with Dr Hasan
Dr. Hasan, the periodontist who has joined with Doctors Putterman and Levine, was a terrific dentist for me. Totally competent, caring, and a good communicator. I would recommend to anyone who needed periodontal treatment.

This office has the nicest staff! From the time you walk into the office, you are welcomed and asked if they can provide you with a beverage, they are very attentive. Dr. Puterman was a pleasure to meet, he has the best “bedside” manner of any doctor I’ve ever met! His knowledge and expertise in the field gave me peace of mind and it reassured me that I have found a great doctor.
