He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was donePhillia, South Africa, 27 08 21

This was probably my best dental experience to date. The receptionist, Yoneli, was patient and helpful throughout the process and both Dr Sayed + Dr Ismail were so considerate. I was in safe hands with Dr Ismail for the wisdom tooth extraction. He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was done. 10/10 would recommend. Was also lucky to stumble on them during women's month because I got a 20% discount on the consultation 😉
