What others are saying.

"Call Palo Verde Implant and Laser before anyone else!!Dr. Tandy and staff are top notch! They thoroughly explain procedures. Honest, reliable, friendly., and great communication. Highly recommend her practice. Julie at the front desk is extremely knowledgeable about insurance and knows the important questions patience should be asking, although most patience, such as myself, never know to ask! And if you're weary of shots, Dr Tandy knows how to make the almost pain free. She says the right things to keep you at ease. They offer sedation, but I didn't feel I'd need it because they are so caring. My last consultation at another practice was 90% higher than Dr. Tandy. See her practice before getting ripped off by another practice."

"Super great lady!  I was away from home visiting Arizona and had a periodontal problem -- a big one!  Dr. Tandy got me right in and treated this abscess with a laser.  It felt 100% better the next day.  I got home and my regular periodontist called Dr. Tandy and they talked about my treatment so my regular doc wasn't in the dark.  Really good follow-up.  I can't say enough good things about Dr. Tandy and her practice."
- Turquoise T - Yelp Review

"The receptionist is so pleasant, she is the epitome of customer service. She talked me through insurance and was very thorough so I understood everything. The dental assistant was amazing and helped me relax and I LOVED the music that was playing. The dental consultation was hands down the best I have ever had. She was so upfront about everything and explained every step in great detail. She was so enthusiastic about getting my teeth healthy, that she made me almost excited about the laser treatment! I would recommend this office for anyone who needs a periodontal specialist that is caring, professional, and encouraging."
