I would avoid this place like the plague. Had a billing dispute and both Diane and Mary were very rude about a charge for a service that the patients main dentist completed a week prior. Diane hung up on me, and Mary was plain rude. Great job losing $2700 revenue over a $67 charge. I hope the dentist sees this! Run, run far far away!
in Black Canyon City, AZ |
Dr. Dorfman performed a bone replacement surgery, so I can get a replacement molar. I was apprehensive prior to surgery and Dr. Dorfman and his staff eased my fears. They explained the procedure and I felt confident with Dr. Dorfman's skill level. There were no complications with little to no down time. I have two more minor surgeries and I will return to Dr. Dorfman's office for both procedures!

Dr. Dorfman says...

I am a dual degree Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon ( Both MD and DMD).  This combination of both medical and dental school training makes me one of the most experienced and knowledgeable oral surgeons in Arizona as well as the US.  I am also only one of 4 current Fellows of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) in the field of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in the state of Arizona.  This places me in the same company as the best general surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, etc in the ENTIRE WORLD.

Dr. Dorfman says...

My vast training and knowledge from years of experience and teaching make me one of the most experienced oral surgeons in Arizona.  I have successfully placed more dental implants, immediate dental implants, Teeth in a day, bone grafts, sinus lifts, snoring and sleep apnea procedures, orthognathic surgery, etc than many surgeons,dentist, periodontists in the entire US.  My outcomes are the pinnacle of dental impalnts
