Read What Dr. Lizano's Patients Say about the Practice
I was referred to Dr. Lizano by my dentist to evaluate implants instead of a bridge. I had to have 3 implants done, including bone enhancement. He did a fantastic job, and 3 plus years later I am still very happy with how I was treated, how the ‘new teeth’ look and how they feel. He is the go-to guy for dental implants. I highly recommend him for your dental implant needs.
Doctor Lizano is the man !! He gave me back my smile. My teeth were in very poor condition (What teeth I had left). I knew they had to go, but I did not want dentures. He assured me that he could do full implants, top, and bottom. Now after it’s all done, I can eat and smile. They are very comfortable and I am very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Lizano and his staff……They are very friendly and made me feel very comfortable through the whole process.
Absolutely fabulous experience from the moment I stepped through the front door! Dr.Lizano and his staff made me feel welcome and comfortable with the entire process. They explained the steps and there were no surprises. I was amazed at how caring and attentive they were. Most importantly I know I was in good hands–no–great hands and the job would be done perfectly. I highly recommend Dr. Lizano!
