Patient Review by Michael Drabyk

If Marcus recommends laser surgery make sure you ask him about the success rate. Meaning typically how much bone growth is expected. I think laser surgery is basically a scam for periodontists. It's expensive and painful and will not yield or save your teeth from bone loss. Be sure to ask "How many teeth have you saved?"

Patient Review by Ana E

If I could rate Dr. Marcus higher than a 5 I would, he is amazing. I was in to have an implant and sinus lift not too long ago. I was so nervous about the procedure, the nurses reassured me that I was in good hands and that I had nothing to worry about. They were right, it was quick and painless. Dr. Marcus was gentle and took the time to explain each step during the procedure. The entire staff at Floral Vale Periodontics were friendly and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus.

I don't know how they did it, but Dr. Marcus and Anne (who assisted him), somehow made my tooth extraction and bone grafting a pleasant experience!
