“A huge thank you to Jennifer who texted Dr. Strober to handle an emergency as we arrived at 8:45 am hoping to have a dentist treat Mr. Lebron’s root canal and relieve him of the horrific pain he endured the previous night. As always, I was impressed with outstanding customer service as both Nicole was so kind, Jennifer so customer focused and keeping us informed of when Dr. Strober would arrive and he got there as promised. Jennifer was proactive and took the X-rays so it was all ready for Dr. Strober and Mr. Lebron was a very impressed first time patient of your practice and will return on Aug. 5 for the final root canal work and permanent filling. Mr. Lebron was so amazed that Dr. Strober even left him a voice mail message on his way home last night to see how he was doing. Your practice now has a new customer/patient as I have been with the practice since 1983 thanks to Dr. Hart’s mother Marilyn, one of my former professors at Kean University and remain loyal to the practice. Also, Tina has been my phenomenal hygienist for so many years, I only trust my teeth in your professional hands. Please feel free to put this note on your testimonial page of the website as I continue to be impressed, thrilled and so satisfied with all your diverse services.”- Angel L. 7-21-16
