Our Latest Patient Testimonials

My experience with Dr. Salas is everything a patient would want to experience with their doctor. He is very patient, professional and has an excellent bedside manner. I was extremely nervous with the biopsies Dr. Salas had to perform. Dr. Salas assured me I would be fine, and I was. He was very gentle, kind and is really concerned with his patients. I cannot thank him enough for all the patience he had with me. I also commend his staff, they were wonderful. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Salas. He has given the confidence and trust we all need in our doctors.

For someone who has had bad experiences in the past with dentists/surgeons, the office staff and Dr. Salas made me feel very comfortable and relaxed! I was well informed and they made me feel like I was an actual person and not just "dollar signs"! Answered my questions and even followed up the day after to make sure I was doing ok! Will definately be sending patients their way! Will be definately referring them!

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.
