Stephanie O., Roachdale, 7/31/2013
"Amazing Experience The entire staff blew me away. From the moment I walked in the door, to when I left, everybody had a smile on their face, which aside from being appropriate for a dentist office, was a very welcome site. They were warm genuine smiles of people enjoying what they were doing. I was blown away by everybody in the office from the folks out front to the folks in the back so to speak. I went into the office dreading the experience, and not only was it the opposite of what I was expecting, but also I look forward to my next visit."
Mark W., Holliston, 7/18/2013

I would recommend Dr. Raisman's office to anyone, of any age, for all their routine and urgent/critical care dental concerns - they are a 5 out-of 5 in my book!"

Deb M., Framingham, 6/24/2013
"I have been a patient at Framingham dental for a relatively short time, about two years. Previously I went to a practice near work on the North Shore. I am very pleased that I have changed practices as the experience at Framingham Dental has been fantastic. The office is extremely polite and professional. Every patient is greeted when they walk on the door and when they are led to the chair. All procedures are explained in detail and the Dr.s are very willing to answer questions. This truly is a practice where the well being of the patient is priority. The only thing that disappoints me is that I never get to read any if the wide variety if magazines in the waiting room. Of course, this is because the office runs very efficiently and promptly. I have never waited more than a few minutes!! I would highly recommend this practice for it's professionalism and it's concern for the community. Events such as the food drive in April demonstrate their commitment to the MetroWest area."
