"I made a hour drive to get here for a root canal . Dr Cohen was awesome. He was witty and clearly knew what he was doing. I felt zero pain throughout the entire procedure. The office was clean and the staff was very pleasant. If I need additional work in the future, I will make this drive again!"
"Went in for my molar root canal treatment with Dr Cohen. Didn't have to wait more than 5mns before being called in. And within an hour ,it was done . I was surprised and happy. Dr Cohen was very professional, very focused and didn't waste any time attending other patients. I had his undivided attention. Also made sure I was comfortable and not in any pain. My previous experiences at a different clinic and different doctor almost took 2plus hours. And not to mention had to wait almost 30mns before being called in.Dr Sunil Mittal and the staff are equally wonderful and professional and caring. Wouldh highly recommend Buford family dentistry."
"I had not been to the dentist in many years, and needed quite a bit of work done. Thank you to Dr. Cohen for completing my root canal and Dr. Mittal for doing my fillings and crowns. I would recommend their office and their dentists."
