As a physician I have enjoyed a professional relationship with Dr. Gilbert for several years. I greatly appreciate the expertise and kindness that he provides to our mutual patients. I have referred patients and my own family to him, and when I needed a dental implant myself Dr. Gilbert was my obvious choice. His staff is also fantastic. You won’t find a better choice for your dental surgery.

Patient Testimonial

Today, June 30th, marks the first anniversary of my oral surgery by Dr. David Gilbert. It was the day he performed a surgical feat entailing sinus lifts and placement of seven implants into my upper jaw. His manifesto, “Science, Art & Heart,” was skillfully applied to restore my several missing teeth, an embarrassment that I had endured for many years following my accident. Before being on his operating chair, I had myriad apprehensions for which I questioned Dr. Gilbert for well over six months. He was always patient & professionally answered my questions. He cheerfully explained intricate details with a computer-generated simulation depicting the procedure and his game plan for restoring me a perfect smile. The 6 hours of surgery under sedation were painless for me. The next seven days of recovery required complete rest, but I defied and was busy on my computer from the second day. After about ten days, I did not even feel that my mouth had seven implants. Some twelve weeks later, Dr. Gilbert placed the abutments. In another 12 weeks, he gave me temps, and finally, nine months after the surgery, I got permanent crowns put in by my primary dentist. I was somewhat amazed at the end -results. Dr. Gilbert’s expertise in implant placement, screwing in abutments, cementing the temps, and finally, the permanents came to fruition for me on April 7th, this year. As I walked out with a mouth full of teeth, I treated myself to a steak dinner. I wanted to put my aesthetical set of teeth to a functional test. I was emotionally overwhelmed in realizing that I was once again savoring food directly against my palate and not through a denture barrier. The joy of regaining a natural bite was empirical, and words cannot define it. Today in completing a year after my surgery, I don’t even feel that I have implants. These are the best replacement when natural teeth are lost. I write this to encourage anyone with missing teeth to consult with Dr. David Gilbert. His office staff is incredible, and Dr. Gilbert, with his outstanding prowess in reconstructive dentistry & oral surgery, is always a humble, friendly, and very cheerful person. I will always stay indebted to him for restoring the smile that I had lost years ago. Thank you, Dr. Gilbert. SY of Redlands.

Dr. Gilbert sat down with my daughter and explained the process of removing wisdom teeth. He explained the after care and told her if she did what he told her to do, she would have little to no pain or swelling/bruising and would be go to go in 2 weeks or less. Dr. Gilbert was right, my daughter was an exceptional patient and did what Dr. Gilbert told her to do and she had very little swelling, no bruising and minimal pain. My son had his wisdom teeth removed elsewhere and the results were not the same nor could the office compare to Dr. Gilberts. I recommend Dr. Gilbert and his entire staff, don't go anywhere else!
