Patient Comments (34)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
On 9 January 2017, Dr. Michael Zachar performed excellently in lifting my sinus, grafting bone, and preparing my jawbone for my first greatly-needed implant. Four months later on 3 May 2017, he inspected his work, which was fine, and installed the implant metal post into my jawbone. In June 2017, a crown will be installed allowing me to resume chewing with my right teeth. He operated on me at the USAF Academy Medical Clinic (formerly called the Hospital). Excellent surgeon.

Dr. Zachar is a phenomenal surgeon. He performed a BSSO and genioplasty on me. He always listened and thoroughly answered all of my questions and put me at ease. He was absolutely professional through this entire process, and my results are truly amazing. I am so pleased with my results and would recommend Dr. Zachar to anyone needing oral/ maxillofacial surgery.

Extremely professional and well executed care. He did a wonderful job on a scar revision surgery, which required reopening a facial laceration and restitching. It was effortless, painless, and delightfully quick.

I was so nervous to get my wisdom teeth out. In the short time at the office I felt like Dr .Zachar and his staff make an effort to address my fears and actually find out about me. I went to another suffering office and he didn't care to know anything about me. I felt like I was just a product in a line. He is a good doctor

Dr . Zachar's knowledge base on orthognathic surgery. He was very realistic with us regarding my Expectations. During and after the surgery I felt as I was in greats hands. After my recovery what he said was going to happen and how It went was pretty much right on point. I would I strongly reccomend him!!!!

I am really pleased with my experience at the oral surgery clinic, USAFA. Dr. Zachar was informative and efficient. At my initial appointment, he laid out a plan and clearly explained the upcoming procedure, including risks and recovery. The procedure went on and the recovery plan was as he explained. During the follow up, Dr. Zachar again clearly explained the next portion of my procedure and laid out a time frame making the appointments for me leaving me very confident. I recommend him.

He is very professional. Always checking on your condition while working on his procedures. Treats your spouse like they are part of his his team, advising and explaining his procedures as he feels necessary as he does his job. Acts like a normal and every day person, not showing and coming across like most officers and and dr's do. Therefore, my experience with Dr Zachar has been nothing but great.He is one of the best Dentist that I have ever been to.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I had my four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Zachar. Dr. Zachat and his assistant were very nice and professional. When we first met, he explained the detail and completely removed my concern about the surgery. In the process, he was gentle and I felt no pain. After the surgery, the assistant told me everything I need to do. In the evening, Dr. Zachar called me to ask me how I was doing that made me feel good. I’d like to say, the whole experience was good and I strongly recommend Dr. Zachar.

I was so nervous to get the treatment I needed. I went to another surgeon and felt very dismissed. I had a consult with Dr. Zachar and felt very at ease with his personality and confidence level. I am very happy I sought a second opinion.

Excellent treatment by both, himself and the staff. Left no questions or concerns unanswered and provided solutions and the way forward.
in Guffey, CO |
Dr. Zachar is amazing. He volunteered his services for me, the wife of a retired Air Force member, who would not have otherwise qualified for coverage due to financial hardship. He is friendly and down to earth and is excellent at what he does. I have had one major surgery and two other surgical procedures, all with outstanding results. He even works with my civilian dentist to ensure continuity of treatment. And it's an added bonus that he plays great music while doing the procedures!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Easily the best few visits I've had to the dentist in the last 2 decades. In the process of having a tooth replaced and have experienced ZERO pain. The management of the process has been impeccable. Customer service is unmatched! In fact the implant cover came out of the tooth cavity after a month or so.. I walked in the day after and was out in less than 10 minutes all squared away. Absolutely no complaints.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
With multiple missing teeth I required bone grafting on all four sides of my mouth. Dr. Zachar and his staff have been excellent! They addressed all my concerns and I was not afraid to ask questions. I appreciate the time they took to make sure I was confident in my care. It was smooth sailing thru the surgery and my follow up care has been on point!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I feel I am a complicated case. Missing lower teeth for 25 years, insulin dependent diabetic since 1970. I underwent bone grafts for 3 implants. Everything is healing I am doing great. So happy!
in Montgomery, AL |
I have never been treated so warmly by a provider as Dr. Zachar. I was very nervous for my procedure and he took the time to get to know me and made me very confident in his abilities. All was explained well and I have sent several of my friends to see him since my visit.
