I was so scared when I learned I was going to lose my tooth. Twenty years ago, I had an accident as a kid and ever since, my tooth has been through the ringer. I needed a root canal twice and gum surgery and then eventually it was too loose from bone loss that I needed to have it out. A coworker recommended Dr. Fiori for the whole procedd and I couldn't be happier. The implant is doing great and I was surprised at the reasonable price, especially since Palo Alto area can be way overpriced

I went to Dr. Terry Fiori for a second opinion. My surgeon wanted to extract two more teeth (he already took out two!) because him and my Prosthodontist wanted to do more costly implants. Dr. Fiori said he could extract the teeth and place implants, no problem, but he recommended a more conservative approach with the LANAP laser and the teeth are doing GREAT two years later. Makes you wonder who you can trust in the dental field and whether they truly care about their patients or their pockets.

One Doctor recommended full mouth LANAP surgery on every single tooth and it was going to cost over $8,000! I saw Dr. Fiori and he found I only needed several minimal areas treated and a good cleaning. I saw his hygienist and had the laser surgery on the few back teeth all for under $1,000... 6 months later and my General Dentist is so pleased with my gums and teeth, he said he's now referring patients to Dr. Fiori because he can trust his work and integrity. I'm so lucky I found his office!
