Dr. Meltzer did a great job on my surgery to fix an infection under my gum around an upper implant. He was very kind, careful, and did an excellent job. He was very gentle putting in the numbing agents, performing the surgery, and doing the stitches. He explained everything step by step. I would highly recommend him for this type of dental procedure if needed.”
