I wanted a dental implant for many years, and was reluctant to go through the process without the right doctor. When I met Dr. Ganales, I found him to be the ultimate professional. He explained everything in great detail to me, which eased my concerns. Dr. Ganales was skillful, competent, and thorough from the beginning to the end of the process. Dr. Ganales is an exceptional dentist with consummate skills, and I highly recommend his expertise to all.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jeffrey Ganales for over 17 years. I am very pleased with the scope of care that I have received and would highly recommend Dr. Ganales.

Both Monica and Dr Ganeles have been amazing. They have managed my dental health so well that I have avoided needing both costly and painful procedures that other specialists said I had to have done. I highly recommend you see them.
AWESOME!! This review is so long overdue! I came to see Dr. Ganeles about 12 years ago when I desperately needed extensive periodontal work due to gum disease. Up to now I never have any complications or problem with implants. That stopped my gums deterioration for years to come. I’m considering myself lucky to be Dr. Ganeles patient. There is none like Dr. Ganeles when it comes to highest quality outstanding periodontal care. I can’t recommend this clinic and Dr. Ganeles enough!

I've been under the care of Dr. Ganeles and his staff for years now and have only great things to say about them. If you're in need of highly skilled professionals who are incredibly friendly, and are passionate about what they do you, need not look any further than here.

My experience in both occasions was positive. Dr G is not only an experienced expert, he also has a relatable caring bedside manner as well. I am less anxious during my visits with Dr G than I am with my dentist. Staff is wonderful as well.

Excellent treatment: caring and knowledgeable. My teeth and gums are better at 80 than they were when I was 40. Staff is very well trained, and all create a very comfortable professional office..

I've used Dr G for implants on a number of occasions ( I have bad teeth, genetic). His work is always top notch. Always done in one session, even the most recent one when I had the entire upper left side of my mouth done. One implant did go bad, but I think that's a a statistical anomaly. He is expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. His staff is beyond excellent!!!! Courteous and efficient. Minimal wait time and excellent follow up. I'm a tad forgetful, so I Appreciate the reminder.

Excellent high quality care. Very careful to make patient feel important and comfortable. Explain all facets of treatment. Guide patient as to post treatment care.

I had a nearly 50 year jaw infection that no one could get under control - several Periodontists worked on it for $1000?s of $$$ with no luck. I went for a consultation with Jeffery Ganeles prior to having my 4 front teeth pulled after finally giving up on ever having them fixed. Do. Gazelles removed a previous implant, removed the infected bone and tissue, and screwed in a replacement implant in one visit. A year has gone by with me eating apples for the first time since childhood.
