    Dr. Stoner's Office, along with all of his incredibly skilled and professional staff are fantastic. They all make you feel as if you are "one of the family" and whether you are there to have a procedure done or a simple consultation, they cater to you every need. Thank you for such a positive dental experience! -Andres B.

    Dr. Stoner and his team do excellent work. I've had several gum grafts done, which was pretty painless for the most part, and the healing went well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and use him again if the need ever arose. -Kara C.

    The work done was the final piece of fixing my smile. I had an implant placed and a gingival and bone graft. He did excellent work! I will definitely recommend them! Wtuscherer T.

    Dr. Stoner and his staff were wonderful. Every question was answered ahead of time, long before the surgery. I even got a refund, because I was short a tooth! -Melissa M.

    I dreaded my visit for 3 extractions and 2 implants plus laser treatment. However, the visit and procedures went VERY smoothly and 12 hours later I had nearly no pain and no swelling. They should be called "magicians" as well as peridontists. I simply cannot say enough positive about my experience so far -- it's been great. -Cynthia G.

    The team at Dr Stoner's were extremely patient and made me feel comfortable for my tissue graft consult. They were very nice and definitely would recommend their office. -Josh J.

    I had laser gum surgery with Stoner and found the team to be very professional and caring Joanne S.

    There is nothing exciting about going to a periodontist, but Dr. Stoner and his staff make it as easy as they possibly can. Everyone is caring and the follow-up is great. I cannot say enough about the excellent caring and concern that Dr. Stoner and his staff have for their patients Tesh G.

    I appreciate all the wonderful people at Dr. Stoner's office. I believe everyone there is committed to my well being.-Dimitry F.

    Dr. Stoner did a great job with my gum surgery. I highly recommend his office for perio procedures. I could not be happier with my results. -John S.

    Dr. Stoner and his team are friendly, professional and have a strong 'patient first' approach.-C. Elizabeth S.

    The entire team at Stoner Periodontic Specialists was professional and courteous. They used the highest quality implant materials since I am allergically sensitive to most metals. The entire team was there for me during and after the procedure was completed. I highly recommend them.-Lisa G.

    Had my final two implants placed last Monday. Procedure went well with minimal pain and minimal swelling. Staff were very patient and knowledgeable. Doctor was very professional. Could not have asked for better service. Ellen C.-

    The professionals at Stoner Periodontics were the best Meredith J.

    Happy that I didn't give up trying to find their office! My experience so far has been as pleasant as a visit to the dentist can be - very wonderful, friendly office personel who even give you cookies if you are good. Dr. Stoner was exceptional. Joanne S.
