  • Sincerely Barbara B.
    I was fortunate enough to win not only one of the donations but two! I have priced professional teeth whitening previously and could have never have afforded to pay out of my pocket. I was so excited to win such huge prizes.
    I went to the first session and was welcomed by a friendly, professional, and knowledgeable staff. The office was meticulous and well equipped with the most modern and up to date equipment. I must also point out Keisha, Dr. Ekstein's assistant who spentover 2 hours implementing the procedure was patient, kind and well-learned in her profession. At no time while at the office did I feel I was getting slighted for cashingg in a "prize". I was treated very well as a new paying customer would be.
    I highly recommend Dr. Ekstein and his staff.
