John Govostes changed my attitude towards visits to dentists. His calm and professional demeanor made my experience of a complex procedure stress and pain-free. He kept me informed about what to expect during the entire process. John followed up with me and was accessible when needed. This is was the first time I could call my doctor directly without going through admin personnel. John works in patient’s best interest. I would recommend him to anyone who needs dental treatment.

My experience with Dr. Govostes was excellent. He explained the procedure and communicated each step as we went along. He combines the best in a clinician, excellence in his craft with a caring approach. I had tooth extraction, bone graft and implant in one visit. Minimal pain and swelling post procedure thanks to Dr. Govostes.
