    We came to Dr. Palani for a 2nd opinion and he blew us away with his knowledge and expertise. He gave us options that were never given by our other dentist. Other family members have come to Dr. Palani's office and are very happy with his service. We decided to get his opinion and it was very clear from the start that we were going to switch to Dr. Palani's office. We are so happy! Thank you Dr. Palani and your fantastic staff!!

    Dr. Palani is very smart in his practice. He has allot of patience in the waiting room which is a good thing for high turn over which keeps him up to date in the latest and greatest of his patience. He has high tech Xray machine which is easy and friendly assistance to show you how your smile will look in a real picture he has high end skills and tons of experience to know how to make your smile much better than other dentist. would just explain and not show what the doctor has in mind for you. Very happy with him and his practice. And his costs are the lower from other dentists who's estimates for the same procedure with out explanation and are higher in price.
