I have had extractions, posts, and many other procedures by Dr. Helfst, I have been a patient of his for many years. I feel very comfortable in his care; he takes a great amount of pride in his skill, he is a perfectionist, he is a terrific diagnostician AND he truly cares about his patients!! I could never see myself going elsewhere...he's that good!! I only wish more doctors were like Dr. Helfst.
