Another 5 star patient review

"Wonderful staff and professional care. I've been going to Buffalo Dental Implant for a few years to have my teeth cleaned and recently received two dental implants. I couldn't be happier with the results! The entire staff is friendly, courteous and professional. These folks provide excellent dental care and I highly recommend their services."
