I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Saleh and his wonderful staff at Optima Dental for 5 years now, and I can’t compliment them enough on what a wonderful experience this has been. Dr. Saleh is extremely talented and very knowledgeable about all aspects of Dentistry. He values and appreciates the fact that dentistry is not only about being able to do dental procedures, but about truly helping patients improve their oral health and feel comfortable and at ease doing so. His excellent clinical skills and chair-side manner are admirable and have helped me learn to be a better dentist. His constant strive for furthering his knowledge of dentistry through numerous continuing education courses has allowed him to tackle areas of dentistry such as implant placement and IV sedation with such skills and confidence that not only do I refer patients to him, but I would personally be his patient without any hesitation.
Dr. Saleh, his front office staff, assistants, hygienists and everyone working “behind the scenes” have not only mastered the concepts of what being a “team” really means, but also take it a step further and make it seem like a “family”…thank you for making me feel like I’m part of it!
