"Most professional experience possible from the moment i entered until I left (with one less tooth)! Dr. Delgado is a perfect mix of seriousness and personality. The staff was the best Ive encountered in a medical practice. I hope i never need an oral surgeon again but when inevitably do, i will go see Dr. Delgado for sure."
"Dr. Delgado was awesome! I was so nervous throughout the process of getting a dental implant and Dr. Delgado made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. He’s the best!"
"Drs.Delgado and Kuzmik have assisted me with a variety of needs through recent years; services are always great- no issues resulting from a procedure. They take great care with follow up as well. What makes this office exceptional is the wonderful staff - they are top notch!"
"There is no one better than Dr. Delgado! The office staff are amazing as well, Kira, you rock!"
"I had my first meeting with Dr Delgado after being referred to his office by Bonilla Dental Arts, whom I also highly recommend. I prepped for the visit by reviewing his clinic website, dkoms[dot]com and downloading the patient information pages and filling them out. That saved lots of time. Somewhat to my surprise, because the waiting area was empty, I waited almost 20 minutes past my appointment time before being taken to the treatment room. Nevertheless, the young woman who escorted and got me settled was pleasant and appeared knowledgeable. Dr. Delgado arrived promptly, talked with me, politely slowing his speech after I explained my hearing impairment, and discussed the procedure, asked appropriate questions about what I wanted/needed to feel safe and comfortable during the procedure, explained pre-op and post-op precautions. I am waiting for estimates for the procedure but have already been scheduled, which is a pleasant surprise, as I expected to have to wait for another month. I'll update my review after the procedure, but so far I feel completely confident in Dr Delgado."
