I am an adult male, age 50. I have suffered with periodontal disease since the age of 20. I have seen periodontists, dentists, oral surgeons and endodontics. I moved to Beaverton and needed to locate a new dentist, which is how I discovered Family Dental Care.
I have spent numerous hours in dental chairs, I am giving Family Dental Care and Dr Dennis Perala a five star rating for a number of reasons. The entire staff is extremely friendly, educated and compassionate. The front office staff remembers you by your first name and always makes you feel welcome. They are very helpful and willing to take the time to make sure you totally understand your treatment plan.
I lost several teeth 15 years ago due to periodontal issues. Until visiting this dental office, no one ever explained the life cycle of bacteria to me. I was always told "you need to have a cleaning every three months", which I never did, as I didn't see the reasons to do so. It was this dental facility that took the time to explain the reasons why (the life cycle of bacteria). I have been seeing an excellent hygienist (Masha) for two years, every three months and my periodontal disease is now dormant.
Because my fear of losing more teeth are gone, I recently decides to have a bridge made for my missing six front teeth. I wanted to finally throw away my 15 year old flipper. Dr Perala did an exam, explain step by step what would be done. I was about to spend almost six thousand dollars, which made me extremely nervous. I am so thrilled that I allowed Dr Perala to perform this transformation for me.
I can not speak highly enough about this wonderful doctor. From the first meeting with me, he understood my fears, anxieties and nervousness about dental chairs. He always made sure I was as comfortable as possible. His skills are outstanding in all aspects. My new bridge is exactly what he promised it would be. No one would ever guess these are not my real teeth. The bridge fits exquisitely well. The most pain I experienced was when I paid the bill.
I would highly recommend Family Dental Care to any one. If Dr Perala ever leaves this practice, I would follow him to his new location.
