Patient Testimonials

“I cannot thank Dr. Rubino and his staff enough for making something unpleasant turn out so pleasant.”

“I had a tooth that had to be removed as well as bone loss in some areas. The thought of surgery in my mouth was extremely nerve-wracking and I was not looking forward to the procedure. After reviewing several doctors, I decided on Dr. Rubino. He was understanding and compassionate about my fears.

“After many visits to the office I eventually felt like family and every visit was better than the next. The staff always made me feel comfortable and there was never a question that wasn’t answered. They are all delightful!

“The day of the surgery was a day I was not looking forward to, but I can honestly say I never felt a thing nor was my recovery uncomfortable. I never took a pain pill.

“I cannot thank Dr. Rubino and his staff enough for making something unpleasant turn out so pleasant.”

Patient Testimonials

“I was pleasantly surprised that I did not feel any pain whatsoever.”

“Dr. Rubino is personable and has vast periodontal knowledge with many years of experience. It is very evident that Dr. Rubino has a passion for his specialty and great expertise, which gave me confidence in his recommendation for the ‘pinhole’ procedure. The pinhole procedure was much less invasive than gum grafting and the healing time was minimal.

“Dr. Rubino and his compassionate staff provided a warm and friendly atmosphere, making the process seem effortless. The procedure was brief, with no discomfort during or even afterward. I had been expecting some pain after the procedure, but I was pleasantly surprised that I did not feel any pain whatsoever. I have only great things to say about the pinhole procedure, along with Dr. Rubino and his staff.

“I am extremely happy with the results and have been recommending the procedure to friends and family ever since.”

—Marjorie, Chao Pinhole® Gum Recession Treatment

Patient Testimonials“Dr. Rubino and his staff are professional, courteous, empathetic and kind.”

“Dr. Rubino and his staff are professional, courteous, empathetic and kind. When I come I to their office, I am greeted by name. They make me feel comfortable, not like I am one of many, but a real person with feelings. Losing my top teeth was pretty high on the ‘worst things that I have gone through list.’ They were able to take a horrible situation and make it seem manageable.

“Dr. Rubino has performed several procedures in my mouth and I am impressed with his skill and attention to detail. Dr. Rubino used implant planning software and created a guide prior to my surgery to ensure the implants were properly placed. My primary care dentist (who was tasked with creation of the prosthetic) told me they were perfect.

“Dr. Rubino also did scaling and root planing on my bottom teeth several years ago, to prevent additional bone loss and save the teeth. I am on a rotating schedule with my primary dentist for cleanings every three months and I have not had any additional major problems. Dr. Rubino works closely with my primary care dentist and they keep each other in the loop as to my care and issues.

“The end result of Dr. Rubino’s care is that I have a pretty smile again, my mouth is definitely healthier and the bad breath is gone. With his conscientious care, I will be able to maintain my dental health for the rest of my life.”

—Diane, Dental Implants, Gum Disease Treatment

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Rubino saved me from a life of continued tooth loss and pain!”

“I had many visits to my general dentist, complaining of discomfort. A friend of mine who was staff at Dr. Rubino’s suggested I make an appointment with him, and I’ve been his patient since 1999.

“Dr. Rubino saved me from a life of continued tooth loss and pain! The first phase of my treatment started with periodontal surgery. I am sure many people have fear and great apprehension; I am no different. The nurses and clinical team eased me through the process. The staff took their time to explain each procedure and were aware and caring concerning my fears.

“The next step was tissue graft treatment to stop bone loss. Again, surprisingly, the discomfort was minimal. Following the treatment to create a healthy mouth, I wanted to fill the spaces from tooth loss with implants. Dr. Rubino’s showed care, expert knowledge and skill in giving me implants to give me back my chewing ability. Thanks to what they have taught me, I am now very aware of how important it is to stay on a maintenance schedule.

“I am extremely pleased with the professional, caring treatment I have received from Dr. Rubino and his awesome staff. I highly recommend treatment with Dr. Rubino!”

Patient Testimonials“Due to Dr. Rubino’s excellent work I was finally able to stop spending so much money on dental work that wasn’t helping.”

“My mouth was in very poor condition when I came to Dr. Rubino’s office. My remaining teeth had all had root canals, crowns or veneers. They were discolored and painful. And I continued to have gum disease despite my efforts to correct it.

“Dr. Rubino listened to my concerns and even offered other alternatives to implants, but in the end I decided it was best to replace all of my teeth with implants.

“Dr. Rubino is impressive, to say the least. He’s an awesome doctor and one heck of a human being. Even though he was extremely busy, I never felt rushed or dismissed. My questions were always treated with respect and answered in terms I could understand. He never spoke down to me or dismissed the fact this procedure would be life-changing.

“Due to Dr. Rubino’s excellent work I was finally able to stop spending so much money on dental work that wasn’t helping. I always wanted white teeth. They are the first things I notice about a person. Now I have my implants and beautiful new teeth. I’ll never forget the first compliment I received on my new smile. No one had ever complimented me on my teeth before. I was elated.

“I just couldn’t be happier. I have a great smile for the first time in 47 years!”

—George, Dental Implants
