Testimonials

Dr. Perez is an excellent dentist. He is fast, efficient, and painless! He has made my teeth look great without over-recommending treatments. I have been to many dentists and he is hands down the best in New Orleans. His staff is great too- Darlene, Carrie and Amanda. They are all friendly and great at what they do. My whole family goes to Dr. Perez and you should too!!

    I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about Dr Paul Perez. The history of my mouth problems goes way back as I was born with no permanent teeth hardly in my mouth, only baby teeth. After many long years of agonizing over this and at a ripe young age of 65 something had to be done. I was referred to Dr Perez and he immediately took affirmative action by pulling the aching useless bottom teeth and fitting me with a partial which looks so real not one single person has noticed. Dr Perez gave me my confidence back and without pain or discomfort. He checked on me to make sure I was ok. That's not even heard of these days. Thank you so very much Dr Paul for all of your knowledge and gentle kindness.

      He was amazing!!! I will be recommending him to everyone. His staff was excellent as well, they were very helpful and made sure I was ok throughout my entire visit.

        Shyla Giles

        HR Manager

        I have a phobia re: dentists. Staff were very sensitive to that and once I told the first person, I didn't have to tell anyone else. They were on top of it. Had an extraction yesterday and, although nervous, I felt very confident about the procedure being done well. IT WAS!

          Johnny Oneill

          HR Manager

          I visited Dr. Perez for an emergency filling. I made him aware of my dental phobia, and he and his staff were SO reassuring. I had complete confidence in the work they did, and will visit again.
