Dr. Rai provided a seamless, stress-free procedure for my wife's wisdom teeth removal. He is straight-forward and honest and we would 10/10 recommend. He called to check on her two days later himself - very appreciated. The rest of the staff was WONDERFUL to work with and so nice.

I recently had a molar extracted and I was very nervous! DR Rai and his staff are amazingly kind and focused on the patient first! They educated me and calmed my fears. I was so impressed that DR Rai himself called me the next day to check on me. I have not see such great service from a DR and staff in years!!! Grateful!

Dr. Rai and his team were well above expectations in every aspect of our experience with my son’s wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Rai’s kind demeanor and explanation of the entire process put me completely at ease regarding the procedure. Extra impressive that he himself called and followed up the day after the surgery to check on my son. Excellent experience and I will recommend this practice to all my friends!

Excellent experience for wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Rai and his team are wonderful people who made the whole process from start to finish stress-free. Very professional but also very welcoming and friendly and kind. The precautions they took during the covid-19 pandemic was also satisfactory. Prices are very fair. Communicated outstandingly with my 'driver' and family post operation. Highly recommended

Excellent Dr. He is very thorough, takes his time with each patient. After my wife's surgery he personally called the next day to see how she was doing. Everyone in the office follows his lead in being kind, patient and empathetic.

I called Dr. Rai's office based on a recommendation I received from a friend. I called them and, from the very beginning, his secretary was incredibly helpful, straight to the point, yet understanding of my situation and empathic. She followed up with a call as promised and got my consult and surgery scheduled for three days later only because they are not open on weekends. The experience at the office was nothing but amazing. Dr. Rai and his whole staff are very kind, patient, professional, yet warm and nurturing. I felt cared for and regarded at all times and I have already referred a friend for the same type of surgery. 150% recommended. The way they treat patients should be the standard and it's sad that I am so surprised by it. They definitely set the bar for what excellent care should be.

Dr. Rai and his staff Did an amazing job from informing me on the process of my procedure to the actual procedure itself. I am amazed at how easy they made this happen for me. I would recommend him to everyone I know for their orthodontic needs.

Excellent speedy service, even if the laughing gas didn’t work on me as it should have. (Not on them, my body is just stubborn) I don’t have health insurance, but they still saw me promptly and helped me with getting payments done. 10/10 will recommend to anyone who needs oral surgery.

Could not have been a better experience!! Dr. Rai and his staff made me feel so comfortable and at home with what could easily be a very stressful process and procedure. A five star rating doesn't even do them justice for how I truly feel they did!

I had a short-term need to have a tooth extracted and a bone graft accomplished in preps for a future implant. The staff was excellent in getting me in to see Dr Rai in only three days, and then Dr Rai was excellent in providing a consult and the surgery in the same afternoon. His explanations of the situation and the recommended procedure were both easy to understand and thorough. The entire team made the experience very comfortable.
