Featured Testimonials

Dr. Paul has been a life saver to me. He literally, seriously has. The expertise in what this office does and can do for people is something that, trust me, I will remember for the rest of my life. And it will give me a rest of my life!
— Peg, Chicago, IL

The way that he did everything was just incredible; unbelievable. He had to work a miracle, and I am really pleased with the results.
— Gene, Chicago, IL

I have seen people coming from China to have him do the surgery for them. It’s amazing how he can change your face in a couple of hours. From the time that I’ve done this, everybody is asking for his number and my sister has flown in from Canada to do the same. I would recommend Dr. Paul Petrungaro!
— Dr. Mojgan Sohi, Washington D.C.

My particular condition was complete bone loss - no sustainable teeth left. Looking back on friends that have had other procedures with other doctors, I feel like I got the best care I could get anywhere. When I talk to people, I can talk and have conversations without trying to cover my mouth. I can laugh in a conversation and be more personable. It completely revolutionized my life.
— Brian, Los Angeles, CA

I feel very grateful for Dr. Paul because he really held my hand through all of this. He is probably the best surgeon in this field. I can’t imagine anybody who is a better surgeon. What I would tell other patients about working with Dr. Paul is that they can have complete confidence in his highly valuable work. Now I can go out to eat, and I can have fun! I feel really good about it. It has made a world of a difference!

"I would just like to thank Dr. Petrungaro and his staff for a truly amazing experience. For years I have had to wait to get implants done and with great fear. I would just like other patients like myself to know that there was nothing to fear at all. It was a very pleasant and pain free experience. Dr. Petrungaro has been blessed with an amazing gift which I am very grateful for. Thank you for changing my life forever."


patient, Little Rock, AR

"Dr. Petrungaro immediately made me feel at ease and explained what needed to be done. During the surgery he was tender and caring, making sure I was comfortable the entire time. His entire staff was exceptionally professional! Although I was awake during the procedure, I didn’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. Virtually no pain or swelling afterwards. It was flawless! I receive compliments all the time on my smile."


Dr. Michael D. Smilanich
