 "If you are looking for an exceptional periodontist, I highly recommend Dr. Shivali Gohel. I was her patient for almost two years. Dr. Gohel performed several complicated procedures to correct my dental problems–soft tissue grafting to help fight my tissue loss and two implant procedures involving bone grafts and a sinus lift. Dr. Gohel explained every procedure thoroughly. She always included me in the decision making process. Dr. Gohel explained what and why a procedure was needed as well as the most current research supporting these different procedures. She was very sensitive to my apprehension about the procedures and reassured me at every step. During the procedures, I always knew which part of the surgery she was performing, what is was going to correct, and how long it would take. And she was constantly checking that I was comfortable. After the procedures, Dr. Gohel was always available. In addition to my follow-up appointments, she always contacted me no matter how small my question was. I am so happy with my results. You will not find a more qualified and caring periodontist than Dr. Shivali Gohel"

She is very professional, friendly and her work is very thorough. In addition to Dr. G’s great work, she also has access to the best technology in dentistry.
