"Dr. Kuzmik is an extremely skilled professional, and I am no stranger to the dental chair. He is cautious and anticipates potential scenarios before he begins his procedures. Yesterday he called my dentist to coordinate my care before he would extract a tooth under a permanent bridge which was quite involved. It was painless and I was surprised when Dr. Kusmik called me last evening to check on me. Although he is not extremely chatty he is kind, all questions are answered, and he works quickly but with the utmost of care. If I need further work in the future I will be calling on Dr. Kusmik."
"Dr. Kuzmik removed a wisdom tooth with two long roots. It was relatively painless and a much better experience than I was expecting! He removed my daughter's 4 wisdom teeth last year and that went very well, too."
"Dr. Kuzmik truly kept me calm throughout my #15 molar extraction. He was almost doing a "play-by-play", and it was comforting.I highly recommend him should you need oral surgery!"
"The dental procedure done by Dr. Kuzmik was really great! It was fast and smooth and I felt no pain at all. The excellent dental service they provide is second to none. This clinic is highly recommended to all!"
