Our Latest Patient Testimonials
Dr. Salas was one of the best doctors of dentistry we have met. He was completely professional and went through the entire procedure from beginning to end. He talked directly to us and my son who is autistic and full of angst to put all of us at ease. He told us if any problems came up he would stop the procedure and schedule a later date at the local hospital with our son under complete sedation and safety. On day of the removal they took our son in and the nurse stayed to tell us exactly what was going on and then kept us up to date on his progress. The procedure was very quick and when it was over we were taken to our son who was all smiles. He said he had no pain. But his smile was all we had to see. We thank Dr. Salas and the entire staff at Northeast for a wonderful experience for our son. We highly recommend Dr. Salas to any one with a child or adult with challenges.
