Steven R. Uretsky, D.M.D., Peridontics - Dental Surgery Done Well
Peridontal Surgery - Compliment
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -- I had some major gum surgery done by Dr. Steven R. Uretsky, who was referred to me by my dentist, yesterday and was very pleased with the overall procedure. The staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Uretsky was very informative (and communicated with me in terms that I could understand) about my condition, what he was doing and how to keep my gums/teeth healthy following the corrective surgery.
It turned out that my regular dentist was right when he told me to get the deep pockets in my gums fixed. I procrastinated for a year and that darn near led to some tooth loss and related health problems from some deep, recurring infections. There was a lot more stuff going on in those gums than I suspected. There was a bunch of stuff that needed removal and then it had to be put back together.
Dr. Uretsky and his assistant kept me appraised of the progress as they made their way around my teeth (all of them, as it turned out, except for the fake ones in front) and also kept me relaxed (as much as a person can be relaxed during such a procedure, that is) with calm, friendly chat and some music, as well. They also made very sure I had enough Novocaine to numb the mouth out. This was pretty much the best performance and care you can get out of a decidedly difficult operation (which would have been a lot easier if I'd paid attention and gone a year earlier when my dentist told me to).
I chose Doctor Uretsky on the basis of his good reputation with his peers (turns out he teaches at the local university, as well-I count that as a plus), convenient location with parking at both the Giant Eagle lot or the public metered lot behind the building and that he accepts our UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) dental insurance. Professional performance, excellent patient relations and very good at providing the patient with information about their problem. A dental problem is never a welcome thing, but I'm glad that Dr. Uretsky and his staff were able to to fix the buggers. I'd sure as heck miss them if they were gone!
