“It has been my pleasure working with and getting to know Dr. Bhakta both professionally and personally. Dr. Bhakta has demonstrated a level of knowledge and understanding within the field of implant dentistry that some will never accomplish. His case level and expertise is at the highest level and his ability to tackle even the most complex cases is not outside of his reach. I have learned technique and skill through his tutelage and have seen firsthand many successful case outcomes. Dr. “B” raised the bar for me and I have appreciated the time in which we worked together. It has been a privilege to work with him and if in the future I have implant concerns regarding my own patients he would certainly be on the “short list” of those that I would reach out to for advice and/or guidance. Dr. Bhakta is a blessing to his patients as well as the profession.” -Dax M. Sinn, DDS
