"Excellent care. Dr. Rafla is wonderful. The staff is also great!"



"Patient with Dr Rafla for 25 yrs - After a car accident at 19 yrs old my only option back then was dental bridges. At 40 yrs old with nerve pain & failing bridgework I saw Dr. Rafla for implants.He is a total professional & expert periodontist, as well as kind, caring person. My implants have not failed in 25 yrs. I moved to Maine to retire and when told to see a local periodontist I couldn't start with someone new. I drove 3 hrs back to Worcester, MA for a consult because I trust Dr. Rafla. "



"Excellent service, the staff and Dr Rafla really cares about you."



"I originally came to Dr Rafla in 2021 for an implant. I live in CT and I wasn't able to get an appointment in my area. Dr Rafla was recommended so I called. I got an appointment with a couple days. The implant was perfect and Dr Rafla is amazing. I have a dentist in Connecticut but I continue to see Dr. Rafla every six months for a cleaning and check up. The hygienists do an amazing job. My cleanings at Dr Rafla's office just feel cleaner than my regular dentist. I end up paying out of pocket, but it's worth it for the cleaning and the check up."



"All are very friendly and helpful at this office!! I had many questions that were all answered and my worries lessened. My mom came with me and she said she’s never been to a more friendlier office as she was asked multiple times if she needed anything as a coffee or water. The doctor is wonderful and did an amazing job for my gum surgery. Thank you."
