The staff and Dr. Wilson were consistently courteous, professional AND endearing to me during my visits. I was seen on time and treated with a respect and sense of value that is, unfortunately, not common place in most physician’s offices. Your staff and Dr. Wilson remind me of Dr. Krist’s office, who recommended you to me for the implant. As a patient, you will often tolerate the tardiness of a doctor, a less than affable staff all because you want to see this doctor who comes so highly recommended. In your office, I get the best of both worlds. High quality medical services and world class treatment. PS You guys should conduct seminars for physicians and their support staff on how to operate their business. Most medical offices would do well to emulate your professional and courteous treatment of patients.BD - Extraction and Immediate Implant Patient
This office is clean, professional, inviting and very caring! I was in and out in less than an hour for my gum procedure AND it looked phenomenal. Dr. Tesmer did an amazing job and he was so personal too, which made me feel a lot more comfortable in the chair. HIGHLY recommend!LK
Lovely office on Davis Island easily accessible, even amongst neighboring roadway construction. Dr. Waite and his staff are top of the line. Their knowledge, professionalism and timeliness ensure friendly, productive and comfortable office visits every time.JL
Purpose of this letter is to congratulate you on the great job you did on the gum surgery to make my smile more attractive.
Recall that I asked you if it would hurt? Not much, you said. When I told my skeptical husband of this, he trotted out to the old physicians line about “mild discomfort”. He said mild discomfort really means it will hurt so bad that you need to call the physician in the middle of the night!
My husband was wrong about the pain! Of course, you used the local anesthetic during the surgery, and sent me home with directions to use Over-The-Counter pain relievers for a few days. The evening of the operation, after the “local” wore off, I had sensations around the stitches. That is, I was conscious of the stitches. No pain then. No pain later either. I was eating ordinary bite sized food the next day!CH - Esthetic Crown Lengthening Patient
BEST oral care!! The level of care and expertise by Dr. Tesmer and the staff is rivaled by no other. Over a period of 10 months they have given me my confidence back and a healthy mouth. Thank all for truly caring about your patients.CR
Dr. Waite and his staff are amazing! I went to the wrong office, completely my fault, and they still let me come in for my procedure even though I was going to be about an hour late…and it was late afternoon on the day before Thanksgiving! They were so great about answering all of my questions. Dr Waite took the time to explain everything to me and worked on my tooth until it was done to his satisfaction. He knew I was concerned about getting too much numbing medication and made sure to give me the perfect amount. Jessica gave me lots of good info and tips before and after the procedure. She also gave me a blanket, so I’d be warm and comfortable for the procedure. I can tell that Dr. Waite and his staff really care about their patients. I really felt like they went over and above!SK
To: James Wilson
Just a note of thanks and encouragement for future patients. I can honestly say that I was worried when my dentist said it would be best for me to have an implant. After our initial meeting I felt confident that you would do a great job. What I didn’t expect was a great job without pain. You and your staff created an atmosphere of relaxation and excellence. I know that in the future when I hear those words from my dentist, “you should have an implant” I will be in good hands and on cruise control.MC - Single Implant Patient
Very professional office. Always on time, friendly and efficient. Dr. Tesmer’s staff was informed and concerned for your comfort. Dr. Tesmer explains all the procedures and good care of your implants. Thanks for taking great care of me!HM - Dental Implants
Dr. Waite is by far the BEST Dentist in the world. He is kind, gentle, informative, assuring, confident, patient, and he is more than willing to spend as much time with you as you need. He never acts like he is in a hurry to move on to the next patient. He is such a sweet and kind soul. All of the staff follow in his footsteps. I highly recommend him as the ONLY Periodontist you should see!!!! Hands down.ZC
Dear Diana, Trish, (and Dr. Wilson too, I guess!)
Thank you. I absolutely love you guys. I was completely terrified by the thought of the whole process Dr. Wilson explained to me at the first consultation. Everyone in your office made me feel at ease and I could not be happier with the results. Thank you so much.MO - Full Mouth Gum Grafting With Alloderm
Dr. TESMER & his staff are super. Great “bedside” manners, very patient to answer all your questions. Caring to make sure all of your concerns are addressed. And regardless of the reason why I had to visit their offices, I have always walked away feeling great. Thank you!VR
I was treated in a very professional manner. I arrived shortly before my appointment and after updating my medical history, was called into the examining room. An X-ray was then taken and shortly thereafter Dr. Waite came in examined me and explained what was happening, good and bad. Altogether, I out of the office in about 15 minutes which I consider to be excellent.SK
Dear Dr. Wilson,
As I told you – through the gauze and my deadened lips – when we were going to our cars, I cannot put into words how grateful I am for your great kindness to me. And you and Trish are so gracious as you so skillfully do your difficult work! That’s a blessing for your patients. Count on my devoted prayers for you and your staff.LJ - extraction patient
They were able to accommodate my needs very quickly. Dr. Tesmer explained everything clearly and answered all of my questions. He even personally followed up with me in the evening after my extraction to make sure everything was ok and answered any additional questions I had. Would definitely recommend this practice!JA - Single Tooth Extraction
Dr. Waite is an outstanding dentist. He did an implant without any pain either during of after the procedure. I am extremely happy with the results.JV - Dental Implant
Dear Dr. Wilson,
Thank you for doing such an incredible job pulling my wisdom tooth the other day. It’s very seldom that I feel compelled to write a letter like this, but you’ve really earned it.
My extraction was a little trickier than the norm but you made it look easy. Your professionalism made the whole process comfortable and painless. I have already told all of my friends, family (and anyone else who would listen) what a positive experience I had. I can only hope that they will take my advice and see you for there dental needs if they truly want the best.JF - Single Tooth Extraction
Having a broken tooth—and needing an extraction and an implant— is never a good experience but I am so grateful that I have Dr. Tesmer and his staff here on my team. I really appreciate their care, concern and professionalism.LI - Single Tooth Extraction and Implant
I arrived on time and was acknowledged immediately. I was taken almost immediately to a room and seated comfortably. I was here for an extraction and after receiving details of what would happen and something to reduce the pain and numb the area, Dr. Waite completed the task very quickly. I received further instructions and a nice chocolate/banana smoothie for the road. I was out of the office within 45 minutes. Well done!JA - Single Tooth Extraction
Dr. Wilson & Staff,
I just wanted to thank y’all for such a wonderful experience during not only my surgery, but the entire process. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my smile and this is just the start! My life has already begun to change and my confidence has skyrocketed! I can’t thank all of you enough for all of your hard work and hospitality!RH - Esthetic crown lengthening patient
I was most impressed with the expertise of Dr. Tesmer. I felt assured I was in good hands. He was quite thorough in his explanations before, during, and after the procedure. His manner was a perfect mix of competence and kindness.DA
I am a General Dentist in North Tampa, and have know Dr. Waite for more than 10 years. His skills are impeccable & his staff is comforting. From the second you walk in……you will realize that you are in the right place.NP
Dear Dr. Wilson
Thank you for your meticulousness and personal care during my implant treatment! It’s reassuring to have a dentist whose skills and expertise one can trust, and who truly cares about his patients’ well-being! (The thoughtful gift from you and Dr. Iranmanesh did speed my recovery – thank you!!). I’ll be referring other patients to you!AF - Multiple implant patient
I had a Crown Lengthening/Root Reshaping surgery at the South Tampa Periodontics at Davis Island location, performed by Dr. Tesmer and assisted by Vanessa.
After my initial appointment with Dr. Tesmer, I was confident that he is an excellent surgeon, and I am in the best hands. During the first visit, I also right away liked Vanessa, and I was thrilled that she was assigned to assist during my procedure.
COMFORT DURING SURGERY
I was very comfortable during the procedure, to the point that I could fall asleep during the first 60% of it. In the end, when they were drilling the deepest, I started feeling a little bit of pain, but I would still describe it very low, about 7 out of a 100. In sum, you get more pain during a root canal or even a cavity filling.
WHAT I THINK OF THE DOCTOR
Dr. Tesmer works very well under pressure and has excellent control over the situation. He is very calm and gentle. The whole time I was sure that he would know what to do, even if anything unexpected happens. Vanessa is one of the best dental assistants I encountered. She is also very calm and gentle, to the point that during the surgery, I had to open eyes to check if she’s still there, as I haven`t felt her. She will not gag you during the procedure. She is also knowledgeable and offered a lot of side tips and information. I thought that they worked wonderfully together.
The price was very reasonable. For a second opinion, if I really needed the surgery, I also checked with another periodontist who gave me the same pricing offer, so I am assuming that this is an average for this procedure. Dr. Tesmer was not overpriced and offers high-quality for the money.
After the procedure, they give a small gift bag, consisting of an ice pack, tea bags, some homeopathic medicine, and a smoothie of your flavor choice.
WOULD I GO BACK
If I needed a periodontic procedure again, I would go straight to Dr. Tesmer, and this time specifically request Vanessa. I am glad I found a quality place at my first try.
Dear Dr. Redd, Dr. Wilson and staff, and Florida Donated Dental Services
I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you have done for me. You have all done so much. I have said this before, and I will say it again. You have given me my smile back. For years I didn’t smile, I was embarrassed to even talk to people at times because my teeth were so bad. You have essentially given me my life back again. I’m sure some people won’t understand this. Maybe they’ll think it isn’t a big deal to have missing teeth. But, until they have gone through it, they won’t understand. With everything I’ve been through in the last seven years I never thought I’d be happy again. But, with all your help… I’m a different person. I’m proud to smile!! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart and soul. I was truly blessed when you all walked into my life. I know it’s not over. I know I will have to keep up on keeping my smile the way it is. But, you have extended a hand and given me a HUGE place to start. I have a new laugh, a new smile, and a new sense of self that you all have given me. Words just can’t say just how I feel. It’s an emotion of sorts. It’s a feeling of freedom. And, it’s because of all of you that I feel this way!!! I don’t think that people appreciate dentistry. Not until they have gone through the amazing change that I have been through. I’m hoping people will read this and realize that dentists can save lives. You have all saved mine. You have given me a new chance at life. My self-esteem is back and if you don’t have that it’s hard to live a happy, healthy life because you hide from it. You tend to shy away from the public. Not me, not anymore. I embrace meeting new people and talking to people. I enjoy going out now and not worrying about what they see when I open my mouth. Thank you, Thank You, Thank You!!!. I wish I could express in detail how I feel, I tried the best I could. I hope you all understand what you have done for me. I will never forget!!KU - multiple implant patient
Top notch periodontics office & staff easily accessed at Davis Island location. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, patient, and considerate care. Nice touches like a mini-fridge with mini beverages, coffee, and snack bars in the waiting area. Convenient and efficient management of paperwork 100% via email if preferred. Dr. Tesmer tells you exactly what he will do and what to expect, and he and his staff make you as comfortable as possible. Virtually painless sedation dentistry — the only actual pain was a sore jaw from keeping my mouth open and normal healing afterwards. Dr. Tesmer provides his personal cell number for post surgery emergencies and both he and staff called me personally after my procedure to check on my recovery. No one loves the dentist, especially any kind of involved dental surgery, but if you must have it, go where you’ll find the best care available.KB
I was dreading my appointment today after having a bad experience recently with my regular dentist. Dr Waite and Hope explained everything to me and made me feel very comfortable every step of the way. This place is a class act and they do things the right way down to every little detail. They even used my own platelets to speed up the healing process. Dr Waite has certainly perfected his speciality…phenomenal surgeon & amazing client interaction! Hope is absolutely wonderful, very detailed in her work and extremely caring. What dentist gives you his cell phone number, Dr Waite does! What dentist sings to you to calm your nerves, Dr Waite does! After my procedure I actually walked out smiling, I was so relieved that everything went just as they said it would and with no pain, I couldn’t help but smile. I’m actually no longer nervous or scared for my next appointment. Thank you Dr Waite, thank you Hope for taking such good care of me. I highly recommend you both!TB
Dr. Wilson and Staff
I just wanted to convey all my appreciation for the great dental care I’ve had in the past year.
My dental implants are wonderful and one of the best investment I have ever made.
Each and every visit I was treated with such kindness and compassion. I could have never asked for more.
You all are wonderful.RG - Extraction, ridge augmentation bone grafting and implant patient
Dr. Tesmer performed an extraction for me today and it went as smoothly as it could have been. He’s patient, explains every option, really knows his denistry, and puts a premium on patient satisfaction and comfort. I would recommend him and his office staff without reservation.TN - Single Tooth Extraction
I could not recommend Dr. Waite enough. He made what seemed would be a scary gum graft procedure to be as pleasant as possible. He is very knowledgeable and his work is wonderful!KH - Gum Grafting
Greetings Dr. Wilson & Staff
I want to thank you again for everything while I was going through all the steps for my implants. Trish was awesome. Diana always gave me perfect directions and Dr. Wilson also, and reassuring me every step of the way. Thank you! Thank you! I love my teeth!JP - Extractions, Bone Grafting and Multiple Dental Implants Patient
Excellent experience from start to finish. I was nervous at first but they made everything so relaxing and fun. Everyone in the office was so helpful and kind. You don’t find that in too many places anymore. Thank you to Dr Tesmer and his team for making my experience a pleasant one. I highly recommend them to anyone. You won’t be disappointed.TDO
Had a procedure done. Was extremely nervous but everyone made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Dr. Waite is amazing.. I did not feel a thing and was shocked at how quickly it all went.NS
I had no idea just how complex my dental issues were until Dr. Wilson graciously led me through the process, I might add with lots of patience, kindness, and compassion. Somehow with my very limited knowledge of dentistry he was able to help ease my concerns and fears! I’m so very grateful for that!
I would also like to thank everyone in your office that I came in contact with for making me feel so welcomed! I was pleasantly blown away! Each and every one of you made me feel like I was your only patient that day! I truly felt like a priority and was indeed well cared for.
I would be lying if I told you that I’m not still a bit scared however, just knowing that each of you will be there with me is a huge comfort!
I know you all do this daily but, I do not! So, it looks like we will be seeing a bit of each other over the next several months so, you have no idea how happy that makes me to no I have all of you there to hold my hand(s)! (You may have to hold me down too!)
It was apparent to me that from the moment I entered the doors of your office until I left that you are all professionals and take great pride in what you do! What an enlightening experience especially in this day and age!
I’m looking forward to my surgery and treatment so, that I made in my journey for a more healthy, complete, and attractive smile!CH - Dental Implant And Crown Lengthening
While there is little doubt I will always fear dentists, you and your staff did a remarkable job of making me feel at ease. The surgery was just as you explained it and I just wanted to drop you this note to thank you and express my appreciation!TL - Extraction , Bone Grafting, And Multiple Implants Patient
Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful care and treatment I have received.
