5 out of 5 stars Dental Implants

Amazing Dr. Amazing Implant

In June of 2010 I had to have my lower left molar ext'd and considered having an dental implant. After all of my  options were considered I decided to go with the implant and  I was referred to Dr. Dorfman. When I arrived at his office there was no wait time and staff was very friendly. After the Dr. spent extensive amout of time on my treatment options an exam was done and an...

1 out of 5 stars Dental Bone Graft

Terrible treatment and follow up.

Quite disappointed. He was not listening to me at all. Poor surgical set up. Putting in an IV was a challenge for him. Follow up was forced by me. I felt discounted. Had oral surgery to remove an implant and a bone graft.

I have 100% confidence in Dr. Dorfman. He has performed various medical procedures on the family members in our household and you always feel you are in competent hands. Each procedure was done successfully. The office staff is very friendly.

5 out of 5 stars Dermabrasion

What a Great Experience, Thanks, Mariah Richardson-Saika - Arizona City, AZ

Dr. dorfmas a great to me when I was getting my wisdom teeth out this last Monday. I also had dermabrasion done. When I was six years old I was bitten by a dog twice in then face and ever since that day I have felt so insecure about then blemishes on my face till my mom suggested dermabrasion. Then doctor talked me through it right before then surgery and I felt very safe. They did then dermabrasion while I was knocked out after then wisdom teeth procedure. my whole life I've,felt insecure and nOw I feel more secure and feel like I can do almost anything now

Wisdom Teeth Extraction - Anthem, AZ

Dr. Dorfman is great at what he does - did my daughter's wisdom teeth extraction a few years back. He is personable - even called that night, yes HE, not the assistant - to see how my son was doing. I would highly recommend him and his pleasant and friendly staff.

5 out of 5 stars Dental Bonding

Great Experience! - Phoenix, AZ

Dr. Dorfman was reffered by my dentist. I gave him 5 stars on all levels because he and his staff truly deserve it. Dr. Dorfman and his staff were great! Very friendly and professional. They explained the procedure step by step and took their time answering questions. During the procedure, i felt at ease (even though i had had a very bad experience with my previous dentist), Dr. Dorfman made sure i did not feel any pain and his medical assistant was encouraging as well throughout the procedure.

I Had Such a Positive Experience and Will Definitely Be Recommending Dr. Dorfman to Everyone I Know! - Anthem, AZ

Dr. Dorfman and his staff are truly amazing! They didn't make me feel like the next appointment they made me feel like a very important individual, taking my questions and concerns serious. They are very informative, answered every question I had, and offered more information then expected which was a HUGE help! Their compassion towards their patients is topnotch and hard to find. I was nervous for the surgery but they made my experience very comfortable and relaxing. Dr. Dorfman even called to check-up on me after I returned home, it really meant a lot. I had such a positive experience and will definitely be recommending Dr. Dorfman to everyone I know!

Amazing Doctor - Incredible Staff

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Dorfman, his courteous staff and my overall experience with them. I needed to have my #14 molar extracted along with jawbone grafting in order to have an implant put in. I don't have insurance so I decided to shop around to see who could do it for the least amount of money. After visiting 4 not so friendly oral surgeons around the valley and realizing that it was gonna cost about the same amount of money to have it done I knew I needed to choose someone I was truly comfortable with. When I came to Dr. Dorfman's office the staff were friendly and made me feel right at home. They set up my consultation immediately after I explained how much the tooth was bothering me so we could take care of it ASAP. When I met with Dr. Dorfman he was friendly, informative and very professional. He took the time to explain my options of simply extracting the tooth or going the route of a bridge or implant. All of the other surgeons I had met with wanted to knock me out for the procedure ( I assume so they could charge more money ) but he gave me the option stating that the pain wouldn't be bad with just a local.That saved me hundreds of dollars. He was very thorough and explained everything clearly leaving me with no questions to ask. I knew for sure that this was the man for the job and he was able to get me in quickly as well. By the time I got home they had emailed me a link to some videos illustrating in detail how the surgery was gonna go. This made it easy for my wife to understand how it was gonna go. We both knew I was in good hands. When I got there for the surgery I was very nervous. I was afraid of going through it being awake and my stomach was in knots. His nurse was waiting for me and took me right in. She was compassionate and assured me that it wasn't gonna hurt like I was fearing it would. She really made me feel at ease. As I was seated the Dr. came right in and was ready to go. There was no wait time at all. After he numbed my mouth he asked if I was ready and off we went. While he was performing the surgery he asked several times if I was feeling any pain. He was genuinely concerned about that. All I could feel was slight pressure. He was done with everything in less than 20 minutes and I didn't feel any pain at all. I was blown away at how fast and pain free the whole ordeal was. As I was leaving, his caring staff explained what to expect for the next few hours and even sent me home with some instructions printed out so I would have something to read in case I forgot anything they had told me. After a few hours the bleeding stopped and the pain was very minimal. Dr. Dorfman even personally called me later that day to see how I was doing. I've never had a doctor do that before in my life. My wife and I couldn't believe that there are doctors that actually do that. My face never swelled up and now I am looking forward to having them do my implant. I will definitely recommend The Center for Oral & Facial Surgery to anyone. They are simply amazing.
