Dr. Elson and his staff were phenomenal. They put me at ease and were all so helpful and caring. I would recommend Dr. Elson to all my friends and family.
in Johnston, RI |
I just had a tooth pulled. Dr.Elson jokes and talks to you so by the time he pulled the tooth, I didn't feel it. I was petrified to have it pulled. He was wonderful. It was painless. The staff and nurses were the greatest. Hard to believe that a dentist was a bearable experience. Only wish I had my son go to him to remove his wisdom teeth rather than the one he went to. I highly recommend Dr. Elson.

I am a very nervous dental phobe. The staff always makes me feel that I am with family. Dr Elson is very professional and kind. I had as pleasant of an experience as can be had at an oral surgeon. They take time to make you feel like you are there only patient. I would recommend them to friends and family without hesitation.
