Our Latest Patient Testimonial

When my dentist recommended to get my wisdom teeth pulled out, I was honestly really scared because it involved surgery. My dentist office recommended to visit Dr. Eric Belinfante as he has years of expertise in wisdom teeth extractions and is highly rated in the area. Although I was skeptical at first, I decided to give it a shot and booked a consultation with the facility in Sugar Hill. After meeting with the doctor and his medical assistant, my perception of the surgery changed upside down! The medical assistant was really kind in welcoming my parents and I into the room, taking a scan of my teeth, and explaining the entire procedure in detail. The doctor accompanied us after 15 minutes and answered all of the questions my parents had regarding the surgery and its after effects. The overall experience made me feel very comfortable and confident towards facing the surgery since I knew exactly what was being done to me and how much time the entire surgery would take. On the day of the surgery, a medical assistant accompanied me into the room where my teeth extractions would be complete. I always get a little nervous when I see medical personnel wearing masks before a procedure, so my parents asked the front desk if they could stay with me in the room until I was given general anesthetia. Although they were not allowed to enter due to medical protocol, the front desk was very sweet about conveying this to the doctor and medical assistants immediately. When the doctor entered, he made me really comfortable and relaxed by making small jokes and asking about my work so that I got distracted from my fear. After he delivered the anesthetia, he kept asking me whether I felt comfortable and sleepy, and waited to call his medical assistants and put on a mask until I was almost completely asleep. I woke up immediately after he completed the surgery (not before, not later after), and was accompanied into a nearby room where I was constantly monitored by the medical assistants to ensure that I didn't experience heavy bleeding or dizziness. When the anesthetia's effect had finally subsided, I was escorted by a medical assistant down to the parking lot where my parents were waiting for me. Overall, I have had the most pleasant experience with removing my wisdom teeth, and very minimal pain afterwards as well. I felt that the overall medical team was extremely caring and committed to ensuring that I was not scared of my experience, while doing a very professional job. I would recommend Dr. Belinfante to anybody who needs to get their wisdom teeth out because he's definitely the best in the area and you're guaranteed to have a pleasant experience!

I was so pleased! It was and easy, quick extraction and virtually pain free. I was expecting to have some pain after the procedure, but didn't experience any at all.

I am terrified of the dentist. I needed 4 bottom teeth extracted, 2 wisdom and the molars beside each. I requested a referral to an oral surgeon. I received my referral and was able to get in to the OS office the same day. I met with Dr. Belinfante. He and his assistant thoroughly explained the procedure. He made me extremely comfortable. From front desk to all the assistants, they we amazing. Very pleasant and professional. The very next day my procedure was scheduled. (I had been in pain for over a week). My entire process was like an hr. I signed in, waited all of 5 min, went to the back and was done and in recovery. It took 30 min to calm me (laughing gas), get an IV, and whatever they do while Im out. Beyond amazing. As for me.this is day 2 of healing. Absolutely NO pain or discomfort. I medicaided my self every 5hrs until morning. Then was switching to as needed... i didnt need it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DR AND PRACTICE

My husband was referred to Dr. Belinfante because he was having an issue with a tooth that needed to be extracted and he also needed an implant a well.. to say that his experience was pleasant would be an understatement.. his experience in his words was AWESOME!!!. He hasn't experience any pain and the next day to our surprise Dr. Belinfante himself actually called to check on him.. (sidenote: No doctor that I'm aware of let alone a surgeon has ever called his patients personally to check on them after a procedure and it was on a Saturday) so with that being said.. we are recommending our friend and family to Dr. Belinfante for all of their dental needs.. he is absolutely the best .. Thank you Dr. Belinfante for a job well done!!
