Our patients say.
"I had the unfortunate experience of needing a lot of dental work recently. I've been to a lot of different dental offices and the staff in this office ranks among the nicest that I've been to. Like many people I have had a few bad experiences in other offices. Those offices didn't have great bedside manor. Dr Yellich's office is completely different. They went out of their way to make me feel as comfortable as possible. After my procedure, the office contacted me on a Saturday to make sure everything was okay. I would give them 6 stars if I could. Highly recommended."
"The entire staff is amazing! They are so friendly and helpful. I can't say enough positive things. Dr. Yellich is an incredibly skilled surgeon. After removing all my uppers and placing implants, I had no pain at all or discomfort. I was amazed! He was thoughtful of my anxiety and reassured me every step of the procedure. His wife, Patricia, was there for every step. She helped me from the start with her incredible smile and positive attitude! 5 stars isn't enough!
"So skillful as a surgeon. My case of upper and lower implants was complicated by unexpected sinus voids that could not support the posts. This is where surgery is an art—to insert posts where they can be strong and away from the voids. His surgery was so well done that I did not have pain in the day following. Dr Yellich and his staff did the right thing— and I am now, 2 years later, very very comfortable with the result. Dr Yellich worked on my case with Dr Jansen, an exceptional dentist who made the tooth appliance."
"Dr. Salehpour is awesome! Super friendly and patient in explaining all the details before my procedure. I felt really comfortable and informed thanks to his approachable style. He's definitely the go-to oral surgeon if you want someone who's not just skilled but also easy to talk to."
"I had a great experience with Dr. Salehpour. He took care of my son's extractions and everything went perfectly. He has a very professional and compassionate office. He made us feel so calm and relaxed. I highly recommend him for oral surgery."
"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Salehpour. He placed three implants for me under IV sedation and it went great. I am so excited for my new teeth in my back molars. I highly recommend Dr. Salehpour for any implant placement procedure!"
"Dr. Salehpour took out my wisdom teeth under anesthesia and I had a great experience— I was nervous before the consult but he and the staff made me feel at ease and gave me plenty of preparation instructions ahead of time. When I woke up, everything was done and I had minimal swelling afterward. I’ll be recommending this office to my friends and family if they need dental surgery in the future."
"Drs. Yellich and Salehpour provide the most compassionate care while also having the greatest ability and experience for complex cases. These doctors are true leaders in the field, and Dr. Yellich is a hero for many including myself, coming to my aid during an emergency. I am leaving this review after trusting these doctors with the care of my son for teeth extraction."
"I had to see Dr. Salehpour when my wisdom tooth got infected and it was one of the most painful things I’ve ever dealt with. He got me in for a consultation the same day and scheduled me for extraction with general anesthesia the following day. I can’t believe how fast everything got done and he got me out of pain so quickly. I was really impressed with Dr. Salehpour and his office staff."
