I recommend without reservation Dr. Puterman, as well as his marvelous staff. Here are my reasons: After Dr. Puterman performed my extremely delicate and extensive dental surgery four years ago, another follow-up procedure was required this May. This subsequent major surgery, which lasted nearly nine hours, was conducted by Dr. Puterman and his assistant Stepanie with extreme competence and consideration. Throughout the procedure, they listened to me attentively, taking into account my prefe

Dr. Putterman and his staff were extremely friendly and thorough. They went over all of my questions and provided excellent, quality care. They followed up with me, including answering a call after hours, and the results of my graft were excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Putterman's practice and am very satisfied with my overall experience.

Dr. Puterman and his staff are excellent and informed me of the procedure each step of the way. Dr. Puterman called the first evening following the procedure to check on my condition which was deeply appreciated. I highly recommend Dr. Puterman and his staff. My thanks to all of them!

Thoroughly professional, but also warm and caring. Everything you could want out of a periodontist and his staff, from clear processes and thorough communication through the procedure itself to follow-up care. Cannot recommend enough.

Wonderful office. Excellent care. Top doc for sure!!
in Potomac, MD |
Dr. Puterman went above and beyond the norm in the care he provided for my adult daughter with epilepsy. I'm a physician-mom with a charity that works on quality health care for young adults with chronic conditions - Physician-Parent Caregivers. My standard is pretty high: he not only met all the benchmarks, he did it with warmth and smiles. What more can one ask for?

Dr Puterman was fantastic! I'm really pleased with my new implant.

Knowledgeable, skilled, and caring.

Simply outstanding care. Aside from Dr. Puterman's considerable skills and professional knowledge- it is his level of caring that sets him apart from a typical practitioner. Yes all of the elements for a good experience exist - comfortable setting (his has a lovely vista to look upon), pleasant and helpful staff - but it is the immediate sense that Dr. Puterman cares about the concern that brought you to see him, helps you understand treatment options and will be there for support. Care matters

Dr Puterman and his staff are the best of the best! I had some very bad experiences with other dental professionals, so I was nervous to say the least. My first meeting with Dr Puterman and his staff I knew I was in good hands. He has state of the art knowledge and equipment. He is a friendly, positive person, but also very focused and serious about each unique situation. He surrounds himself with the best staff I have ever encountered. I feel very fortunate to have have found this office.

Dr. Puterman was highly recommended to me by our family dentist. After an initial consultation, I am a patient in a multi-step process of dental surgery. From the onset, Dr. Puterman and his entire staff have been highly professional, supportive, and totally skilled in putting me at ease with the ongoing process. All procedures have been thoroughly explained and and executed with expertise. I definitely recommend Dr. Puterman's superb practice.

Dr. Puterman is one of the best dentists I have gone to and I am seventy four, so I have been to a lot of dentists. He is extremely careful when he is working on your teeth and, really, I did not feel much of anything and I had a large molar removed and a gum graft. He sends you home with enough information to keep you comfortable and calls to make sure you are doing fine.
in Chevy Chase, MD |
I had gum/bone surgery by Dr. Puterman and am thoroughly pleased by the experience. I did not feel a thing which is the very best part. Dr. P. is not only highly skilled but has a great personality as well. He and his staff were so considerate and professional the entire time and explained everything along the way. I always felt that they were completely tuned in to my comfort.
