They did a great jobSmit, Portugal, 06 06 17

I was in great pain because of an infection under a broken tooth and called Perfect Smile in Pirtamao on a Sunday in May 17. Doctor Tony and Harold Bettencourt left a family party to help me. I had to come back a few days later for an extraction. During my visit, Dr. Harold kept telling me what was going on and what the next step would be. The extraction was very difficult. He and his assistant did a great job and I am still thankful for that. Tony gave me his private number, in case I needed him after hours. The next day one of the assistants called me and asked me how it was going. I have never been treated so well by a dentist and would certainly recommend Perfect Smile. As a tourist, I had to pay cash of course but the bill was very reasonable. Perfect Smile is not open on Sundays, but the dentists Tony and Harold Bettencourt do help patients in pain during weekends. I would definitely recommend them.

My sons brace broke while on holiday and after giving them a call we were seen within two hours. They were very friendly and professional and didn't even charge. I feel that 5 stars aren't enough.
