"I went to see Dr Rafla yesterday for a consultation regarding a recommendation from my primary care dentist to have a deep root scaling. he could have jumped right in and said that's what I needed. Instead he told how I could possibly take care of my teeth and gums myself with a four week follow up. His doing that restored my faith that a trip to a specialist does not have to put you in hock for the rest of your life . when I go for my follow up I believe that he will honestly tell me what I need to do and not just what will tack on a heavy expense. Thank you Dr Rafla."



"Very thorough! Highly recommended!"



"great dental work always make feel comfortable and Akram has a great staff highly recommend ??"



"I've had extensive periodontal work done recently by Dr. Rafla, including 4 upper and 2 lower implants, plus gum augmentation. He and his staff are top-notch professionals - knowledgeable, polite, and friendly. They took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns, and they made every effort to ensure a relatively painless and satisfying experience. Dr. Rafla teaches a course to periodontists at Harvard University, which attests to his being one of, if not the best, around in his field. I very highly recommend him to anyone !"



"Three implants done with Dr Rafla - I had a few root canals done at my dentist and then the teeth cracked and needed to be extracted. I lived with the missing teeth till I found Dr Rafla and he explained that I needed a bone graph since it they had been missing so long..that took six months for the bone to regenerate and give him the depth for the implants...the implants were painless and done correctly I have been going back to them for 2 yrs to monitor the implant, check my receding gums and get a extensive cleaning every 6 months. I was then able to go back to my doctor and get Invisalign treatment. Without Dr Rafla this would not be possible. Yes I could have bought a new car, but I also could have had dental problems the rest of my life..I now don't worry and my smile is straight again."
