Dr. Kukucka & his team are the best! Everyone is incredibly kind, compassionate & professional, but most importantly really care about their patients. Dr. Kukucka is excellent & his staff is exceptional! Whether you come for a visit, procedure or surgery they always take the time to ensure your comfort, fully explain the treatment & welcome questions. After my recent surgery, they called me to check on how I was feeling post operatively & ask if I had any questions/concerns. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Kukucka.

To me an important part of seeing a particular dentist is how they treat patients and that they have a good reputation. I was referred to Dr. Kukucka by my dentist and later learned that friends had also gone to him and they had very good experiences and some were repeat patients. I had a consult with Dr. Kukucka the other day and it went fantastically. I was very nervous but the staff made me feel comfortable and I was able to relax. Part of my concern was that I would not be a candidate for an implant due to very narrow, almost nonexistent bone. Dr. Kukucka examined me, explained everything in laymen terms and in great detail the steps necessary to give me an implant. I am ecstatic to get this done and I am very glad to be having this done by such a friendly, competent group. I actually look forward to getting started - I'll let you know how it goes!!

I came to Dr. Kukucka for a gum grafting. Everything about this office- the people who greet you at the counter, the hygienists/dental assistants, the doctors, the ease of scheduling the surgery and subsequent follow-ups- were phenomenal. My surgery was tricky but Dr. Kukucka and his skilled staff have completely solved my issue and I am finally able to enjoy all the foods I wish. I even said on the last day- I'm sorry I won't be seeing you again, but I'm not sorry I don't have to come back!

I had 3 implants performed by Dr. Kukucka and it was an excellent experience. Prior to the surgery Dr. Kukucka called me twice after hours to address concerns I had. His staff is outstanding making sure I was completely prepared and totally comfortable throughout the procedure. I experienced no pain and I give Dr. Kukucka and his staff 10 stars!
