About Front Desk: Dr. Puterman's staff, from the receptionist to the dental assistants, were the epitome of what professionals should be. They were thorough in all matters, helpful when assistance or guidance was needed and a breathe of fresh air...they all were genuinely upbeat. It made for a, dare I say fun, experience!

About Front Desk: The front desk staff and surgical assistant team are wonderful. Marla is sweet and is amazing to interact with (and handles everything with insurance companies. Isela is often in the surgery room and is the office manager and it was like having a second surgeon there--she calmly explained everything, is great to interact with, and has a passion for the field. Stephanie helps throughout the office and is funny, including nice chats about football--but is also there and jumps in whether it be at the front desk or assisting with readying procedures. The staff makes you actually want to visit.
