From the first person who greets you when you arrive, the entire staff’s goal is to make you feel comfortable and provide you with the best possible care. Dr Gilbert spends a great deal of time making sure you understand the procedure, and during the procedure he and his staff are the ultimate professionals. Always have had an excellent result . My fifth procedure and will never go anywhere else.

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!

“Dr. Gilbert,
I wanted to say thank you so much for all that you and your staff has done for me.

I am so excited for what will come in the future now. Thank you so much for the care you have given through this whole process. I will forever be thankful for all you have given me.

Thank you,

“i just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of me, and for the rest of the team! i have no swelling (perhaps cuz i slept in my recliner, sadly the frozen peas are just too bothersome), i imagine more-so because you all…i believe the mission statement says something about making it the best experience. well, it has been, so thank you. thank goodness. 🙂 and i’m finding i don’t really need the vicodin hardly at all. the ibuprofen has been fine. the hardest part really has only been the lovely stinging sensation after the medicated rinse, but at least that means it’s working! tell Dr. Gilbert he gave me the only completely painless IV insert i’ve ever had! i swear i didn’t even feel it! but thanks again for being so pleasant & kind”.


“Dr. Gilbert and his staff have been wonderful to me before, during, and after my big dental implant surgery. My implant case is more complicated than normal, and I was very nervous about facing the surgery. I have done my research regarding my case on the internet, but Dr. Gilbert has helped me to clarify my concerns and answered my endless questions patiently though out the waiting period. When the big surgery day came, I knew Dr. Gilbert would take good care of me! I have also recovered sooner than I expected. It has been a year after my implant surgery, and the result was beautiful. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Gilbert and his staff again for doing an excellent job. The only way I can thank Dr. Gilbert and his staff is by referring my friends to visit Dr. Gilbert when they need someone they can trust and feel comfortable to deal with their health issues”

“Dr. Gilbert is my favorite Doctor by far. Throughout the years I have sat in numerous doctor chairs. Each time I dread the day that I have to go into the doctors office because I am nervous, scared and worried what news the dentist will tell me. However, I look forward to the day that I go to visit Dr. Gilbert. He is empathetic, explains procedures thoroughly, and takes the time to listen to my concerns.

Dr.Gilbert has changed my life immensely. He has brought happiness to me with the wonderful work he has done. I was never afraid. I trust Dr.Gilbert’s work 100%, he is fantastic. Dr. Gilbert treats his patients with care. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient. He made me feel comfortable and important to his practice. There is also another reason why I love to going to visit Dr.Gilbert. He is a very handsome man, and with a face and personality like his, it is never a dread to go for a dental visit. It is always a pleasure to see Dr. Gilbert and his caring staff and team. They put a big and beautiful smile on my face each time”.

Thank You Dr.Gilbert!
