"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."
"My family has been under the care of Dr. Kuzmik for a long time and all I can say is it has been a great experience for us. He is very friendly and the quality of his dental care to all his patients is the best in town."
"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!"
"This is the first time I went to this clinic and all I can say is it was an amazing experience for me. The tooth extraction procedure was very smooth and painless. Dr. Kuzmik is very highly recommended indeed!"
