New York, NY
I first met Dr Orlando when I was halfway through my orthodontic treatments. We discussed long term restorative treatment post orthodontics. I was not only impressed with his obvious passion for dentistry but his sense of compassion for his patients. Its not every day you find a great dentist who is honest, personable and really there to help his patients. I can't say enough good things about Dr Orlando and recommend him highly.
After my teeth moved into place, we were ready to start the implant process. The planning process was completely mapped out technically, it included full x-rays, scans, photographs, molds, and precise measurements to create the surgical guide. It was reassuring to have things so well planned, Dr. Orlando went over every single step of the procedure with me. He gave me prescriptions and instructions to follow post surgery.
I had three implants placed. At the start of the procedure he numbed the entire area which ironically was the only part of the procedure that I felt! I did not feel any pain during the surgery or placement of the implants. He checked on me frequently during the procedure. I felt a little pressure here and there but never any pain. After the procedure I took all prescriptions and followed his instructions exactly. Dr. Orlando followed up with me several times after the surgery (on the weekend!) just to make sure all was well. I did not have any pain or discomfort! He is an awesome dentist =)
