Dr. Blair Reviews
Best experience I have ever endured. The staff was very professional.
Experience could not have been better, exceeded all expectations.
Dr. Blair is the best! He has done two implants for me now, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Great team and excellent care!
Pre-consult appointment and surgery were both handled in a timely manner and I've had surprisingly minimal pain after surgery! A few more details from the surgical staff post-op or a write up with details would have been nice, but overall, very satisfied.
Getting an implant can be a daunting process but Dr Blair, Judy and everyone else made it smooth, comfortable and easy!
