My association with “My Dentist” has been exceptional; from Gloria, the affable receptionist, to Patty, my gregarious, competent hygienist. However, my highest accolades go to Dr A. Potluri, a perfectionist and “techno wizard” with dental implants. Dental care from this office is indeed provided with a genuine personal touch.

I have been a patient at “My Dentist” since 2007. I was referred by good friends and have been forever grateful. Dr Ajay and his staff are welcoming and professional. They make going to the Dentist an enjoyable experience. Two years ago I required a Dental Implant on my front tooth. The procedure went very well and I have had numerous compliments on my “beautiful teeth”. A big thank you to Dr. Ajay and his staff.

The decision to get implants took me a long, long time as I had to overcome many mind blocks (the money, the perceived risk, the amount of time once again in a dentist’s chair). I have had a bridge break after one month and then replaced with a partial, so was a bit leery about entering into another “arrangement in my mouth”. I love my implants – I wish I’d gone straight to them and never even got a removable denture; I love not taking out my teeth at night; not worrying if I am going to lose them or misplace them, or that my partial would break on a holiday. It is the best money and time I’ve spent!
I had dentures for over 50 years ever since I was 16. I never knew about how you would lose bone if you do not have teeth or implants in your mouth. It came to a stage I could hardly keep my bottom denture in my mouth, forget about eating stake. I did a lot of research online and visiting a lot of dental offices. I was told, I need a lot of bone grafting that involves taking bone from my hip. I was told the success of the graft staying in is questionable and the whole procedure can take few months to one year. It involved not wearing my denture for some time. I was not ready to do that and started looking for other options.
I found Dr. Potluri on the internet and found his website very informative and interesting. After my first appointment I was told to get a CT scan of my jaw bones. Dr. Potluri created a 3D model of my jaw bone and virtually placed implants in to the Jaw bypassing the nerves and blood vessels. By creating a 3D model, he used every mm of bone available. The implant surgery did not involve any grafting and was a breeze, there was not much discomfort later. I wore my dentures right after the surgery and was eating regular food. I am glad I found him and I love my implant supported dentures which are rock solid. I finally enjoy my steak and enjoy going out with my friends.
