I’m always on cloud nine everytime I visit dr. Weisberg’s office and it’s not from novocaine because he did not treat me for cavities, I’m high from his long extensive experience, his passion and love for teeth, his state of the art equipment, he has the best and latest equipment and knows how to use it, the man really knows and loves teeth. In my opinion there is no other dentist out there for me. I went four years without going to the dentist because the last dentist I had gave me the highest dose of novocaine for a filling I think you could get, and I was still screaming. He then asked me if I took recreational drugs, because that was an unusual response. I told him, I don’t even drink carbonated beverages, I’m a healthfreak, I don’t even drink coffee. I walked out of there swearing I’d never go to another dentist, I know that sounds crazy but the pain I felt was ingrained in my brain and super traumatic. It took me four years to work up the courage to go to another dentist. I inherited a great smile so I thought I’d just be like my grandmother who’s 82, has all of her teeth and didn’t see her first dentist until she was 70 because she’s from Haiti and the dentist was not a priority. I still worried because I knew that I didn’t have my grandmother’s lack of processed food Haitian diet, her countryside fresh healthy food upbringing, I was kidding myself, I came to America at aget 12, it would take a miracle for me to have all of my teeth at 70 and never see a dentist living in this country in these times. Our water is full of harsh metals, our food is loaded with high fructose corn syrup, hormones, okay okay, I’ll stop. This was years ago, then I found Dr. Weisberg and I’ve never looked back. Right Before I found dr. Weisberg I went to another dentist who said I had gingivitis and prescribed an extensive plan with I think a hygienist, it would cost about 1600 bucks and it’s some sort of antibacterial that would be injected in my gums. I knew I didn’t want that option, I didn’t like the way that particular dentist ‘s teeth looked and I know genetics say a lot in terms of how teeth look, but his teeth were not healthy and I wasn’t comfortable with that prescription. I just thought to myself if I do your treatment, my teeth are going to look like yours, no thanks. I was devastated to hear about gingivitis and just decided to keep looking. i found Dr. Weisberg online, his equipment was the appeal, how he does fillings without cutting, water laser or something, I didn’t have a cavity but I liked his website so From the moment I got my x-rays done, Dr. Weisberg began to empower me as a patient because ultimately healthy teeth begins with the patient. I got a thorough lesson in oral care, I thought I was brushing perfectly, Oh, I wasn’t. He’s very patient and his passion and love for teeth is infectious. He answered all of my questions, gave me a thorough cleaning which took a long time because I went so long without seeing a dentist. He could have done like other dentists and schedule it in increments in order to make more money and spread out the cleaning but he wanted me to have perfectly clean healthy teeth right away. I was scheduled on his day off to come in for a thorough cleaning, he went tooth by tooth, super focused and forthcoming with so much information about teeth, I was so happy to have found someone like him. This man cares about teeth and is extremely passionate about what he does. I’ve come to learn that he’s always up on the latest research, when someone is passionate about what they do, continual education and research will come naturally to them. He has an amiable personality, that helps also. i feel very at ease with him and I’ve never felt that way with any dentist, I look forward to my visits, I’m amazed. My smile is healthy. I’m so grateful because I went to Dr. Weisberg with gingivitis, I just started with his toothbrush a week ago because I can be stubborn. I’m looking forward to a life long healthy smile. The negative reviews about the salesman thing puzzles me. I didn’t pick that up from him at all. Be confident to go see him.
