I have had issues with gum health for over 30 years, and the fact that I still have my natural teeth is because of the talents and skills of Dr. Temple and her staff. Their care for me was evident: they went the extra mile to explain any procedure, answered all my questions, and I was impressed that my procedures were so smooth and pain-free. I have no doubt that they truly care about their patients and have the expertise to deliver on their intentions.
When Dr. Temple became a part of the team at Tyler Periodontics, her expertise and confidence were evident to me through how she carried herself in a room. Within minutes of seeing me, she had a plan and was confident in her decision. The team was professional and transparent throughout, with a clear treatment plan that you, as a patient, have final approval over. After my treatment with Tyler Periodontics, I can finally live a life without mouth pain.
I wanted a periodontist who cares as much about my gum health as I do. I switched to Tyler Periodontics and now believe they’re the best care available in East Texas. They make me feel heard, they want me to be comfortable, and they prioritize having a state-of-the-art medical clinic. Even more, they’re kind. The team is kind to one another, the receptionist desk is welcoming, and I’ve always felt respected as a person.
