"I have been a patient of Dr. Dufour's for the past several years and was referred to her by my general dentist for periodontal and implant restorative care. The two doctors have worked closely together coordinating a plan of rehabilitation for my specific and unique circumstances.
There have been numerous appointments required for my specific work. Dr. Dufour's office has been exceptional in scheduling initial and follow up appointments to fit into my own business responsibilities.
I have been well prepared by the staff for each procedure. They have been most helpful, courteous and professional. Dr. Dufour's attention to detail and concern for minimal discomfort has exceeded my expectations. I have known from the beginning what the complete plan of care would entail, so there have been no surprises.
Admittedly, I was apprehensive at first, but have found the care, attention and results to be very superior. I would have no reservations in recommending Dr. Dufour's office for someone needing her special skills and delightful demeanor."
"Over the past few years, I have had six dental implants done by Dr. Dufour. The staff has always been cordial and very accommodating. I have found Dr. Dufour to be pleasant, meticulous and most important of all, extremely competent! Her technique is impeccable. My procedures have been relatively pain free with excellent results. Dr. Dufour has really put a smile I can be proud of back on my face!"
"I am writing this testimonial six weeks after my treatment. I had been suffering from bleeding gums and bad breath problems for over seven years, which gradually turned into mobile teeth. I consulted Dr. Dufour, who diagnosed it as periodontal disease which needed immediate treatment. I am the kind of person who has always been afraid of going to dentists for any treatment whatsoever. I am so sensitive to pain that I can't even think of getting a shot. This was my primal fear and main reason for not going to dentists. I went through a number of counseling sessions with Dr. Dufour and Nora before I realized that prolonging this treatment would just make my case worse and lead to loss of teeth. Dr. Dufour advised laser treatment (as opposed to traditional gum surgery), which is newer technology but more expensive. She told me that laser therapy is less painful and more effective for the patients.
I was treated in two appointments and I was greatly surprised that I did not feel any pain at all (neither during nor after surgery). For a person like me, it was simply unbelievable. I am sure it was due to the skilled hands of Dr. Dufour. At least, by this time, I have no bleeding gums or breath problem.
I would strongly recommend Dr. Dufour as a skillful and experienced periodontist to anyone who has this disease. Don't get caught by the pain fear. If a person like me can't feel it, nobody else on earth can."
"I have been a patient of Anne Dufour since 1996. Over the years, Dr. Dufour has been very helpful to my dental health. I can count on her to provide me with honest appraisals of where my oral health is and what would be the best future course of treatment and self maintenance to ensure the health of my gums and teeth."
I wanted to take a few moments to write my thanks for all you have done. As you are well aware, I for the most part, avoided a periodontist if at all possible. Upon learning I had a loose tooth at a regular cleaning appointment, it was very much recommended I see you for help. I guess all the previous suggestions to receive periodontal treatment went in one ear and out the other until I heard “loose tooth."
You and your staff were outstanding in keeping me informed and updated with everything going on with my surgery, treatment and of course needed regular dental maintenance. You said “we’ll keep our fingers crossed” concerning the severity of the “loose tooth” and if it will be saved. Time will tell. The laser technology you used for my procedure certainly was “less painful, less trouble, and less pain” than procedures I had in the past. It’s a pleasure for me to clean my teeth and no longer experience, pain and bleeding.
Since the surgery both are now gone.
Thank you very much,"
"The day of my implants, I was in the office for a couple of hours. Dr. Dufour and her staff explained everything to me, which made me feel very comfortable about the work being done on me! Now, 10 years later...I would not want to part with my implants. They feel like my own teeth, and look fabulous!"
"I am extremely pleased with the service which Dr. Dufour provided for me! After suffering many losses that led to severe depression, having this work done was one of the final positive stepping stones that helped me to feel better about myself. Having well-fitted, functional dental work supported by dental implants changed my life in a most positive manner. I am so grateful!"
"My experience with Dr. Dufour for a bone graft was without pain or discomfort. I was extremely anxious, but the staff was very gentle and caring. By using a sedative, the procedure went very well!"
"I must tell you...and I’ve told you many times that you are the best!! It was my pleasure to have worked with
you and that’s the honest truth!! I have & will always have tremendous respect for you & your work!!
"Dr. Dufour and the office staff provided a friendly and supportive dental environment during my recent procedure.
I was prescribed Halcion (Triazolam) before my appointment for dental implants. I found the Triazolam to be a relief and helped to make my dental experience so much more comfortable. I was verbally and physically responsive throughout the entire procedure.
If anyone is having any reservations about a dental procedure, I would strongly recommend Triazolam to allow you to have the same positive experience that I have had.
