I first met Dr Lakha when he removed my son's wisdom teeth many years ago. He did a superb job then, but no longer does wisdom teeth. In the past few years I have needed some implants done, and Dr Lakha has done all of them for me. He is straightforward, reassuring and extremely competent. He explains what he will do, what to expect, and is available if a patient has questions. His demeanor is very calming and he has a gentle touch. I recommend him with enthusiasm and no reservations whatsoever. I feel lucky to have found him.

About Front Desk: the staff at the office are unfailingly supportive and accommodating. This is a very well run practice.

There is no doctor in the world like Dr. Lakha. When I was 18 years old, I came to him with 8 teeth missing because of a birth defect. I was in and out of doctor's offices for years trying to find a permanent solution to my extremely sensitive and complicated case. I had been to many other surgeons who were not looking to take care of me, but just trying to make a quick buck. Every visit I was greeted with facts, measurements, and every honest detail of my procedure. My surgeries were going to cost a lot of money, and he knew we were not secure financially. He took care of me and worked out a financial plan that didn't bury us in debt. His number one priority was my health and well-being. I could not be more grateful to Dr. Lakha for his genuine care and compassion. I cried when I saw the final product because this man gave me my life back. Dr. Lakha will not be a "yes" doctor and tell you what you want to hear. He proceeds with his cases with the highest level of integrity and care. He told me I needed to get braces to ensure my body did not reject my bone and tissue graft and my implants. I would recommend him over and over again. My mother is getting her implants with him, too. He is one of a kind and true miracle worker!

About Front Desk: Amazing. His staff is just as wonderful as he is!

This guy is full of himself and don't buy what he is selling. He is just another oral surgeon, doing what all oral surgeons do. As an attorney, I didn't believe a word he said & went elsewhere and was treated very successfully. Beware, a British accent does not equate to intelligence or expertise. Keep your guard up, go elsewhere

I would give Dr. Lakha 10 stars if I could. I had two mole extractions and two implants. I actually had a bad experience with a previous surgeon in Canada. One of the implant he did failed so I was so upset and hopeless. I thought I was not a good candidate for implants. I saw Dr. Lakha he explained to me the failed implant was too small that I needed a bigger one. He reassured me and gave me confidence so I went for it and voila! it was succesfully done, in 15 minutes I was ready to go home. The post recovery surgery was almost pain free and quick. He is the best surgeon! .

I went to Dr. Lakha with serious gum disease and tooth problems, he was able to put a team together with Dr. Sahiwal and give me the most amazing treatment and beautiful smile in the last year with many visits for surgery and implants. He was able to help me with understanding how to care for myself and how to work with the other doctors. There were no surprises and I am very happy with a beautiful healthy mouth now. Thanks to Dr. Lakha and Dr Sahiwal.

I love Dr Lakha and according to him I am one of the hardest cases he has worked on. Basically almost all my teeth have to replaced with implants and I am very young to do this process. I had severe anxiety and stress about this process before I saw Dr Lakha but the process, treatment and his attitude has been impeccable and I am very happy with the results. I am half way done and cannot stop raving about the work and how tolerable this has been for me - in fact most often there has been little or no pain from the surgeries and I am recovering very well. I would recommend him to anyone who decides to get implants.

Dr Lakha is the best surgeon. He did a minimally invasive implant treatment that took only 15-20 minutes and was pain free. Prior to the surgery, he explained the procedure in depth. His logic, expertise and gentle manners made this a very positve experience. His custom technique involved no stitches or bruises -- and I was pain free the evening of the surgery. He is a very thoughtful and concerned man, focused on the health of his patients. If I ever needed another implant, he is the one I'd trust to do a stellar job

I had nine implants in 2 surgical sessions. I was fearful of the ordeal but my treatment was beautifully handled and I could concentrate on healing and compliance with instsructions. Dr. Lakha's surgical expertise, and state of the art techniques, got me through the procedures with 100%success. Dr Lakha has a calm and caring attitude, toward myself and his staff. He is trustworthy and masterful and I am most grateful for his work and his character. I cannot say enough praise for him and his staff. They are the best. I recommend Dr. Lakha without reservation.

Very nice personality. Highly professiona! Very knowledgable. Expensive, but you get what do you pay for. Trouble free. Doctor Lakha did 5 implants for me and extracted one wisdom tooth. All procedure was done in single 2 hours visit. No complications, no significant pain after, ... first time in my life :) Thank you Dr. Lakha

As an adult with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, I know first hand the benefit of having implant tooth replacement. Because my teeth are weaker than average, they are susceptible to fracture and the treatment options are extraction or implant replacement. Most implant surgeons are reluctant to treat OI patients. They shy away from these cases because the teeth are fragile and there are additional complexities related to medications endocrinologists sometimes prescribe. This leaves extraction as the most common form of treatment. Dr. Lakha has successfully performed four implant tooth replacement procedures on me over the past eleven years. He is very thorough, highly skilled and establishes an excellent rapport with his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Lakha.

Dr. Lakha has done two implants (left front tooth and right incisor) and both were done without any problems. Dr. Lakha and his staff have been both very helpful and couteous throughout. Dr Lakha has taken time to explain evreyting to me. I could not be more pleased. I did not do any price comparisons since he came recommended by my prosthedontist Dr. Raymond Chu as they work very well together as a team.

15 years ago when I first went to Dr. Lakha I had had extensive root damage from years of braces to the point that I was loosing my front teeth. I could not bite into anything at the time, even a slice of pizza required a knife and fork. I was missing my two fang teeth and my 4 front teeth had to be removed because of so much root damage. Dr. Lakha had to graft bone to build up the front of my upper jaw and then he put in 4 implants and a bridge was built with 6 new teeth. This process took place over a couple years I believe but when it was finished, I literally cried tears of joy.... it was life changing and worth every penny.... I could now bite into anything. 15 years later I saw Dr. Lakha with some questions about my jaw, he was as warm and welcoming as ever and was able to explain what was going on (just needed some bridge work after 15 years) and set my mind at ease. Dr. Lakha is literally the best doctor of any kind that I have ever been to, during some of the bleakest times in my life he has always brought light with his calm. He welcomed me 15 years after my surgery at his office as if I had seen him yesterday. I would recommend Dr. Lakha to anyone.... Julie Sanservino, Truckee, CA

I have had two bone grafts and dental implants. This was a long procedure since I was ill for several months between the bone grafts and the implants. Dr Lakha was completely accommodating. He gave a careful description of the procedures and a detailed costing before starting. The surgeries were always on time, very well organized, and with minimum pain. Recovery from anesthesia after each procedure was quick and with no requirement for pain medication. Dr Lakha's staff coordinated very smoothly with my Dentist, Dr Demarta for the fitting of the crowns. I am completely satisfied with the results.

I had an implant of a front tooth done by Dr. Lakha . It was a complete success, absolutely no pain, and a wonderful result. The office staff are extremely professional and caring. The facility is immaculate, state of the art, and you could never be in better hands. I would highly recommended Dr. Lakha to anyone interested in implants.

I received an implant from Dr. Lakha and he removed my four wisdom teeth. In 2003 I had the implant put in and it is still a complete success. In 2009 I had my bottom two wisdom teeth taken out at the age of 26, and even at my later age for this type of surgery, it was successful and my recovery went extremely well without literally any bruising. I felt calm and in good hands both times I went to Dr. Lakha. His assistants are so friendly and help to put you at ease as well.

My upper left molar (tooth #14) was extracted and successfully replaced with an implant by Dr. Lakha. A long-term, chronic infection of the nasal sinus near the tooth cleared up immediately after the extraction of the old tooth. My subsequent implant has been completely successful. Originally, this tooth had a very extensive filling. Then, more than ten years ago, after a root canal by a different dentist but before being crowned, it fractured while eating. Several repairs ensued, including crown replacement, but there was often low-level pain, mostly of the gums, and also a very persistent sinus infection in the maxillary sinus just above the tooth, which led to an almost continual, low-level nasal discharge on the left side. Only after living with this for years did I get a referral from my primary dentist to Dr. Lakha for consideration of an implant. Extraction of the tooth revealed severe chronic infection, but Dr. Lakha was able to cleanse and preserve the socket. I also received some graft material to augment the bone of the socket area. Later, after the implant was done, I returned to my primary dentist for the crown. The final outcome has been excellent in every respect. My thanks to Dr. Lakha and his team!

I had a difficult front tooth extraction and implant ( Nobel RP, 4.3 X 16 mm, TiUnite Surface, Custom abutment of #9).The implant and gum surgery turned out beautifully, no one would know the extensive work that was done in the front area. Dr. Lakha has a wonderful chair-side manner. He's very calm, almost serene, patient and is willing to take as much time as necessary to answer any and all questions. He told me, "patients who get the information they need, heal faster and have a better outcome." He was always realistic and informed me of all possible adverse outcomes & complications and told me what to expect in the future (he even gave me the specifications for the implant should he retire and I need a crown restoration). He's very experienced and a gifted technician. His staff is very friendly and supportive and called after each procedure to see if I was having any problems, discomfort and able to eat. They were prompt in making appts. and were on time when I arrived. Dr.Lakha also communicated with my dentist and prosthodontist giving them updates and coordinating the restoration and on-going care. If I ever needed this type of dental work again in the future, or someone needed a referral, I would highly recommend him.

I had a tooth implanted right next to my front tooth and it was extremely successful. All the other dentists in my area told me my mouth was too small, etc, etc because I have goldenharr syndrome (and I guess doctors and dentists get scared by this), but he was able to get that implant in and it looks amazing. You can't even tell the tooth is fake! The pain was minimal and he was very attentive and followed up a lot. I'm extremely pleased with the results.

Dr Lakha did an outstanding job on my dental implants. He explained clearly what the process would be and gave me treatment options to choose from. Every step in the treatment process was executed very professionally. Dr. Lakha has an excellent staff who were also very cordial and helpful through the procedure. Best part was that Dr. Lakha went out of his way to perform an additional step in the process (bone graft which is pretty expensive) because he felt that it was the right thing to do. This was after I had said that i will do without it for cost reasons. Great example of how Dr. Lakha puts patients and professional responsibility ahead on business considerations I would very highly recommend Dr. Lakha.

Dr. Lakha repaired a multi-dimensional defect with a 3-dimensional graft. The entire defect was corrected in one surgery, and without complications. Though I'm young (20's), traditionally this type of defect is treated as either irreparable or with marginalized success. Dr. Lakha has proved this wrong: I can't imagine how things could have gone any better. My grafting was a complete success, and I am very thankful I found Dr. Lakha. He is confident, highly skilled, gentle, and attentive. His competence as a surgeon is matched by his bedside manner. He addressed every concern I had, and attended to every request. I dislike dentists and dental surgeons just on principle, but I have no reservations about Dr. Lakha whatsoever. Though his services do not come cheap, I trust him completely, and that makes him worth every penny. If you need grafting, or if you want a second opinion about it, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Lakha.
