Dr. Le Pera is amazing! Came out early on a Sunday for an emergency… Helped my daughter and put her at ease… From the Doctor, to the hygienist , to the secretarial staff- all are outstanding!

Great dentist and staff. Very glad I chose to come here for my dental visit. Definitely recommend to friends and family!
This was my first visit at a new dentist office and I was nervous to get my checkup. I enjoyed my hygienist Carmen, the cleaning it was very thorough and the staff was very professional. I will definitely be back for my 6 month visit!
Dr. LaPera had been my dentist for 15 years. He is extremely professional and has a wonderful pleasant manner. I recommended him to a friend from NYC and she now goes regularly. I am fortunate to have found him when I moved from NY.
Excellent dental practice. I have been a patient for 20 years. The doctors and staff are professional, on time and caring. Great communication and they always put the patient’s needs first. I have recommended Summit Dental to other friends who have also been highly satisfied. My teeth love these guys.
This is the best dentist I have been to. The place is very clean they have been sanitizing everything down before covid-19 came into existence. The doctor is the best dentist i know of he is very kind, patient, and gentle. His work is perfect.
I would highly recommend this dental practice for all dental care. Dr. Le Pera is a true perfectionist and his care for the patients is his main priority. My experience is my main focus to this review. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. Carmen, the Hygienist, is also a wonderful asset to the practice. She is thorough with her cleanings and care for her patients. Definitely an A+
Loved my hygienist Carmen. She gave me lots of helpful tips and didn’t use electric tools to clean. I loved this because I have a lot of sensitivity and the electric tools exacerbates my symptoms. Which means she listened to my worries and honored them. Dr. Le Pera is awesome as always and keeps me well informed.
Really the best dentist I could ever ask for. I know they are a trusted source and Dr. L is truly one of a kind. Someone who genuinely cares about his clients- it always feels like family. I do all my work here- what I love is that if Dr. L is super honest – and if he knows of someone better suited for a particular procedure he will tell me transparently and recommend the best. No dentist can beat him. He doesn’t look to do more work than needed and always takes a conservative approach to help retain your natural teeth as much as possible. (Important to me since I’ve broken my 3 front teeth in half due to a fall and he’s done brilliant veneers). The receptionist and support staff are lovely as well. And if you need a cleaning ask for Carmen – she’s fantastic.
From the warm welcome upon arrival, to the thorough cleaning by Carmen the Hygienist, to the professional and gentle exam by Dr Le Pera, my experience was terrific. I’ll be back!
A ridge augmentation is when your dentist builds up your jaw ridge where you have one or more missing teeth. They will add gum tissue, bone tissue, or both to the ridge to prepare the jaw for implants and/or to make your jaw ridge more attractive. A ridge augmentation recaptures the natural contour of your jaw and gums.
Ridge augmentation varies in cost, depending on what exactly needs to be done to your jaw and how extensive your treatment will be. After a thorough exam, including X-rays and possibly 3-D imaging, we can give you an accurate idea of what your treatment will cost. We can also answer any other questions you might have about this procedure.
Ridge augmentation is often performed to prepare a patient’s mouth to receive dental implants. If the jaw is too thin or the ridge isn’t tall enough to support implants, then augmentation may be needed. Ridge augmentation is also done to make the area where you’ve lost a tooth more attractive. Building up the ridge will ensure a more natural-looking jawline.
