This letter is long overdue, but an absolute must for me. It is because of your prosthodontic work (and Vic's)that I have such a fine set of permanent upper teeth from the implants that Dr. Smiler put in. As you know, my case was probably the most difficult that you and Dr. Smiler ever had to work on because of the botched jobs done by other "implant specialists". What you did was a masterpiece, a "work of art"...no one even knows that I have implanted teeth in my upper jaw! I show everyone my upper teeth, but even then no one can tell.
Until I finally came to you for the implant prosthodontic part of the difficult oral implant procedures of Dr. Smiler (i.e., the UCLA's terrible work, when they claim to be the experts in the field etc.), it appeared certain that my career in my profession was essentially over and that early retirement was the only alternative. As you know, I simply could not wear a denture! All the so called "experts", made matters worse... and I always ended up with some form of a denture that was worse than before. Your meticulous, work, your precision and time, your patience and knowledge, and, most of all, your unquestionable expertise and competency made my previous nightmare a new positive reality. I not only did not have to wear a denture, but you made for me a precision set of full upper teeth that fit perfectly, look magnificent, feel comfortable, and function as normal teeth. You and Dr. Smiler saved me from early retirement and saved my career. As a psychologist, I can say that your dentistry goes beyond mere cosmetics to a precise science. How can I thank you? The best way that I can do that is precisely what I am doing: getting on with living my personal and professional life and showing anyone and everyone my set of new permanent teeth. This July it will be 2 years since you put them in. It took 5 years of wasting valuable time and thousands of dollars with others on teeth that were eventually useless.
Dr. Weiss, you and Dr. Smiler know more than all of UCLA and other implant specialists put together. How do I know? I've tried them all before. Thank you for your abundant care and knowledge.

In appreciation for your remarkable professionalism and my total satisfaction, I do believe a testimonial would be proper acknowledgement for the dental implant services I have received.
I am issuing it in full truth. If it can be of any use to you I give my permission to use it.
Over a period of about 15 years I had been suffering from ill-fitted and troublesome dentures. About 2 years ago I attended a seminar on dental implants and became very interested. Therefore, I began to inquire into a responsible dentist who practiced this new dental advancement. My daughter recommended her dentist, Dr. Arthur W. Weiss.
Since the completion of my implant procedure I now have a et of dentures that are comfortable and allow me to eat all the raw vegetables and hard fruit I want. Even if I am served a portion of tough meat, my implants just become- TUFFER.

I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your ability as a dentist. And that ability, mixed with a genuine concern and caring, puts you in the top ten on the planet.
I remember when I first came to you I was in tears. This was after having already made the rounds in the dental community. At that time you gave me a clear view of the problem and what you thought the best solution would be. It helped me to decide on what I should do, and I felt satisfied I had made the wisest of decisions.
It's also nice to know that one has a professional who is looking out for their best interests. You watched, studied and waited until the technology of implants had arrived to where a recommendation by you would benefit your patients with less risk. It is this watchful approach that so sets you apart.
So far as you can see, Dr. Weiss, if there were Academy Awards for Dentists, I would declare you the winner in all categories.
Thanks again for your professionalism.

It is difficult to believe that almost a year has passed since my implants were finished.
I do appreciate the thoughtfulness and caring of you and your wonderful staff in taking me through "the unknown" to the ultimate great results.
Now I never think that I have implants. I think of them only as my own teeth.
My sincere thanks to you for all the help and encouragement you gave me.

I completely agree with the first Yelper to review Dr. Weiss. He IS the best dentist in SoCal. Dr. Weiss was my dentist since I was about 4 years old but recently couldn't go no longer because I now live in Colorado. His staff, particularly Alison, are amazing and caring.
