    “Dr. Linger solved a big problem for me. I have had work done by dental specialists previously but the one-stop shop that Dr. Linger maintains works well.

    You don’t need to coordinate work between specialists. During the past year, Dr. Linger performed a sinus lift, bone grafting, and five implants in both sides of my mouth.

    The outcome is amazing. His clinic has the latest equipment, his staff is super friendly.

    There is a family feeling to his practice. With the latest equipment, the cleaning is done in far less time than in a traditional dental office. Above all, Dr. Linger is a truly skilled dental professional

    Once you meet Dr. Linger and more so after you see his professional work, all your concerns would dissipate. He is truly a master of a variety of dental specialties.”

    “What I appreciate as a consumer of excellent provider services (to the point of research prior, and a consult with Dr. Linger and staff) is that Dr. Linger and his staff make special efforts to ensure you are Number One.

    It’s not only about stellar dentistry (which is a given with Dr. Linger) it about the care in the chair and the aftercare. It’s like you are with family.

    They take note of your needs and be sure they are met. Dr. Linger is careful, and fussy about his approach — doing what is right, not what is easy or just what I happen to want. I had so much work by Dr. Linger that I feel very confident in saying what I have.

    The visits are easily over 10, and I look forward to them. That’s the truth. I miss the staff, and they welcome me like an old friend when I return. The highest of marks to all of them. And, yes, they are a little more expensive, but stand behind all their work, for life. Priceless.”

    Very Happy Patient
