You don't just have to take our word for it, you can just ask hundreds of patients that we've seen over the years!

SAP personnel have always been friendly and alert to my needs. They meet me as I come in and make every effort to make me feel at home. My hygienist, Tina, is gentle yet thorough. Her touch as she probes for deep pockets is almost undetectable. I always feel that she's done exceptional work. I've been a regular patient for cleanings ever since my surgery years ago. I credit SAP, Dr. Sharp, and Tina with keeping me healthy.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH STAFF HAS BEEN WONDERFUL. VERY KIND AND GENTLE FOR SOMEONE LIKE MYSELF THAT IS SO AFRAID OF GOING TO THE DENTIST PERIOD. THEY HAVE WORKED WITH ME AND MY SCHEDULE WHEN THEY ARE IN S.V.HOWEVER FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR QUICK FIX. THIS IS NOT. I HAVE GONE WITHOUT A TOOTH SINCE JUNE. MY TEMP WAS REPLACED TWICE. INSURANCE PAYMENTS ARE ALSO A CONCERN.BUT OVER ALL. DR SHARP HAS BEEN PROFESSIONAL SWEET AND HAS GENTLY HANDLED MY FEARS.I RECOMMEND THEM HIGHLY!

After many years of periodontal treatment with Dr. Susan Sharp at Southern Arizona Periodontics, I opted for an all-on-four dental implant. The entire process was fully explained in terms that were easily understood. The medical aspects and procedures were detailed and fascinating, the financing very doable, and the follow-up care by not only the doctor, but the prosthetic technician, dental assistants, and office staff were extraordinary! I could not be happier with the results. A relatively quick and pain-free visit and I had a new smile thanks to all at Southern Arizona Periodontics. I would definitely recommend this dental practice to anyone in need of periodontal work, and anyone considering dental implants!

Dr. Sharp's office is a very warm & welcome place in which to come. We're always treated with the highest level of courtesy and respect, and when coming in for our bi-annual prophylaxis, ALWAYS done in a congenial & professional way! Tina is our hygienist, and there is no one better, to be asked for. She is always warm, courteous, and considerate of our personal needs. Quite honestly, Tina, is the primary reason I continue to come to this office!!

Cole, Sharp, and crew are nothing short of fantastic. Professionalism, knowledge, and friendliness all go a long way towards making each visit a pleasure...I look forward to my appointments. And the restorative work they have done has literally changed my life. I highly recommend.
