There are plenty of dentists to choose from in my company's plan. But after I saw such fabulous results in two of my best friends, I decided to go to their dentist: Dr. Buzza. After all, I didn't want Santa Rosa to be the only one in the group photo with yellow, crooked teeth. He let me decide what I wanted to do. Worked around my schedule. And let me create a payment schedule. Although I was out-of-plan, his office did all the insurance billing and follow-up for me. My first payment wasn't due until I had already received an insurance reimbursement. The bright smile Dr. Buzza and his team put on my face is the best value I have ever received!
I needed a lot of dental work, about 5 to 6 appointments worth. That's a lot of missed work, and I'm a sole proprietor. Dr. Buzza gave me an alternative: to get it done in one sitting - while sedated. The first thing I remembered was the team feeding me yogurt when we were halfway done; and I went right back to sleep. That night, I went out with my wife. It was so easy. And he made it easy to afford, giving me 12 monthly payments at 0%. Now, that's painless dentistry! Dr. Buzza and his team make me smile - and, on occasion, yawn. He'll make you smile, too!
At most dentists, I feel like I'm seeing the preacher with a bottle of booze under my arm. I expect a lecture. Dr. Buzza didn't scold me for years of mouth-neglect. Instead, he went to work saving teeth that others wouldn't have attempted to save. After four years, my teeth still look - and feel - great! There's a genuine family atmosphere at Dr. Buzza's that motivates me to go back for check-ups.
I don't do pain well. I needed a root canal, and some vintage 1960s fillings replaced. The prospect of seeing a dentist was, to me, scarier than going through labor again - and I had two bad labors. Dr. "Buzz-saw" - that's what our kids call him - sedated me to blissful sleep. Never felt a thing. I even woke up feeling good. I wonder if Dr. Buzza has ever thought of becoming an obstetrician?
My ex-husband was deathly afraid of dentists. Hadn't been to one in 10 years! Somehow, he found Dr. Buzza, and said the experience was enjoyable. A dentist enjoyable? I had to see this for myself. Dr. Buzza is enjoyable! He's also fast, funny, caring, and a real pro. As a teacher and musician I don't have the luxury of looking grouchy. Dr. Buzza gave me the smile I always wanted, and now I even feel more cheerful. At every appointment he and his team make me smile. He'll make you smile, too!
Between Berkeley and Santa Rosa I probably pass 1,000 dental practices. But I don't mind driving out of my way to go to a craftsman, and that's what Dr. Buzza is. Every time I've visited, he and his team have delivered extraordinary professionalism, care, and humor. For that, I'll continue to drive. Dr. Buzza has been working on my mouth since 1983 - that's a lot of miles of smiles.
Staff members are friendly and professional providing thoughtful, caring services. Thank you!
It was a good visit with professional cleaning. Also i was impressed how quickly Dr. Buzza found the lower need for a cap that was missed by the other dentist.
Great staff, always on time, very professional.
I needed three teeth worked on in one visit. Not only did they turn on the chair massager, they gave me a soft, cozy blanket to keep me warm and toasty. Dr. Buzza always puts my needs first, even if it means stopping in the middle of my procedure to give me some time to relax. He's the best!
Everything was great!!
I have a lot of trust in Dr Buzza and his staff. I have been going to him for 20+ years. This time i had concerns/fears and they listened carefully, offered feedback, and helped me make the best choice for my dental care.
Absolutely pain and fear free! Everyone was super kind and I am feeling 100% fine the morning after. I would recommend Dr. Buzza and staff without hesitation.
Best dental experience of my life! Felt like flying first class.
Broke a tooth, needed a crown. Took me in right away. Accommodating, friendly, no pain. What more can you ask?
Love everyone in your office! There isn't a sourpuss in the bunch! (oh, and they take great care of my teeth and my nervous nellyness!)
NIce work! Thanks too for the recommendation for the nerve relief!
My name is Caroline Chase, and I am a new patient of Dr. Buzza?s. I am excited about my first experience in his office. From the moment I entered the office, my senses were stimulated by what I experienced. I entered a space that was truly beautiful, filled with modern furniture, lovely photos on the walls, and comfortable chairs for the patients and staff. Someone had taken the time to design the space in an aesthetic and pleasing way. I was ecstatic to find myself in such a beautiful and cared for environment. I drew everything in with my eyes, and felt like I was in the center of dental heaven! Added to this wonderful picture, were all the lovely staff of women who greeted and welcomed me, putting me at ease. I got the feeling that I was being taken care of, and I didn?t have to worry in the least. I could clearly see that everyone working was functioning as a whole team, and each person was contributing and helping. I sensed a nice flow throughout the office. I could also see that the staff were happily working, and gave off a happy and positive feeling. This in turn made me happy. After being in many dental offices, I know the difference it makes to have a happy staff. Along with this, I observed that in the morning, everyone arrived bright and early, and a friend who recommended me told me that the staff had a meeting with a ceremony that included a positive affirmation for the day. Dr. Buzza, Mel, and Karen took care of my teeth, and gave me the attention and listening that I love. I also was greatly impressed with the high technology that started from filling out the online form, to the digital X-ray machine, and to Karen the hygienist using speech technology, and speaking aloud into a microphone to the computer to record the numbers of my pockets. It was like a scene from the future! I could see that for coming to the dentist and taking care of my teeth, I could receive some goodies and refreshment in return. It felt like the Tooth Fairy had dropped by. There was tea, water, snack bars, pens, etc. I was simply delighted, and enjoyed taking everything in. I wish that every medical office could be this pleasant and high quality. What a different place the world would be. Perhaps the best part for me was that I felt in my whole visit, that I was cared for, appreciated, and loved. This was important to me, because I had recently left my old dental office and dentist due to some changes, and was experiencing some withdrawal sadness. This experience helped me more to transition over to my new dental office with Dr. Buzza! Well, I realize I may sound nuts in my testimony. You are right. I can?t help but be crazy and really appreciate this experience from the standpoint of a patient. Each patient deserves to be treated with great respect and value. As I feel respected and appreciated as a customer, I will be returning again. I look forward already to the next visit. I heartily recommend Dr. Buzza?s dental care to everyone! Sincerely, Caroline Chase
Always friendly. Always Caring
Hi, My requests were met at the front desk, and my hygienist was really gentle but thorough and terrific. By the way, Melanie is always such a nice familiar face I think of when I think if this office, and it's a comforting feeling. What a gem. Thanks Everyone! Ashley Meyers
Karen is great! your staff is very professional and it is always nice to get some personal attention from John Buzza
had my teeth cleaned and she did a great job... and explained some procedures I may need in the future they feel great...!!
Excellent care as always and my bridge doesn't fall into my soup anymore thanks to the superb crafting of Dr. John and Melouise. Love you guys. John Everett
It was much better than I imagined....thank you. Very happy I choose the implant :-)
Very warm and friendly. They take the stress out of going to the dentist!
Everyone on Dr. Buzza's staff is incredibly nice, well-trained, and efficient. They have the latest equipment and a pristine environment. That equipment didn't work quite perfectly the last time I was there, but they bend over backwards to resolve it. They make sure that all procedures are scheduled and done, but sometimes don't explain why they're necessary or make sure that your insurance will cover it...so be sure to ask!
It was one of the greatest dental service I have ever had.
Comforting to know I am in capable hands...Dr. Buzza is always so friendly and most important he is a good passionate dentist...not all dentists are. He has the latest equipment to help keep his patients healthy...we are blessed to live in an age where we can maintain good oral health...gateway to the body. And as always Rene cleaned my teeth to a sparkle. God bless you both.
friendly up beat environment. Very professional.
Karen is great.
