"Finally, after years of being unhappy with my smile, I finally have the smile of my dreams thanks to the wonderful dentists and staff at Lazar, Coyle & Akl. Dr. Lazar, along with his fantastic staff, helped me achieve the smile I always wanted and longed for. They took the time and patience to give me a natural smile that looks like I was born with it. I have my self-esteem back, a movie star smile and a feel like a million dollars. They gave me more than I could ever ask for....thank you again!"

"I am so happy with the dental group of Drs. Lazar, Coyle, Akl & Poulos. From the moment you enter the waiting area, you are welcomed and made comfortable by the support staff headed by Donna! The dentists are so skillful and up to the minute on all of the latest dental technology. Anesthesia that works on only one tooth, so when you leave, your mouth isn't all numb and distorted. Crowns that can be made and inserted in only one visit! It's a far cry from the place I used to go, where having a crown fitted sometimes took 3 months. With a whole group of dentists, hygienists and dental assistants under one roof, if you have an emergency, someone is always there for you. Dr. Lazar is fantastic. he always gets it right and quickly. You know when you have a cavity filled and the dentist has to check your bite with the blue carbon type paper? With my former dentist, it would take around 20 minutes or so for him to get my bite "right". A few taps on the paper and Dr. Lazar knows just where to zero in with his drill. A couple of minutes and it's perfect! Dr. Lazar just did veneers with me and my mouth has never looked better.! What's even more amazing is that the temporary ones he made for me looked great too (so I didn't have to walk around looking scary while the work was being done). I have total confidence in him and highly recommend them....just don't take my appointment!"

"You may think this testimonial is very "corny" and perhaps exaggerated but it's not! This is truly the way I feel...

I have had the most wonderful experience at the dental office of Dr. Michael Lazar. Most people don't boast or "rave" about their dentist, but I do! I have the most amazing dentist ever! My veneers look fantastic and they have actually changed my life. My smile is very natural looking and matches my facial features, no one can tell! People have been saying to me "Wow, you really look great, what have you changed?" I just smile at them with my new perfect brilliant smile and say..."It must be the change in the weather, it's beautiful outside now that the sun is shining!" For me, having a great smile really is important because of my line of work, I am in front of clients all day long talking. I feel really great about myself and have so much confidence when I speak now.

So, as I said, I truly have had a wonderful experience. The entire staff is professionaland they make you feel very comfortable in the chair, they put you to ease. I always feel I am in the best of hands! They are the ALL STATE of Dental Care.

Warmest regards and the Number 1 fan of Coyle, Akl & Lazar, DDS."

"I have been a patient of Peter Akl DDS for about 20 years. During this period of time, I have grown quite fond of him as a person, friend and incredible dentist. Peter is an extremely warm, sincere and caring person who is always concerned about my well-being and dental health...always very truthful, to the point, never pretentious.

I am definitely not an easy patient...I would rather sit in the seat of my sports cars than in a dental chair, but Peter has always made me feel at ease with his "chair side" manner. We always laugh, joke and enjoy each others company. His professional skills are "the best"...the results are amazing. Peter is a perfectionist. He has what my mother would say..."hands of gold"!

I trust Peter for me and my family as well...my wife and both sons have been with him through all these years also. It has been a relationship that has been tested through "delicate dental" concerns...all have worked out well thanks to Peter. I am proud to say he is "family"!"

"I just wanted to thank Dr. Lazar, Janine and the entire staff for their impeccable job in providing me with porcelain veneers. I was referred to Dr. Lazar by another dentist and he surpassed my expectations in every way. I am an actress and what was standing between me and my career was my smile. Not only did Dr. Lazar give me the perfect smile, he didn't stop until he was happy. He is a perfectionist in every way and I could not be any happier. I would recommend him to anyone looking to create the perfect smile. No one said to me "You had your teeth done!", but they noticed I had a beautiful smile and was smiling more than ever. Thank you everyone at DDS. The next play I am in, you will all have seats for the opening night."

"When I was growing up, going to the dentist was a nervous experience. I had several dentists throughout the years. In 1990, I was referred to Dr. Lazar due to an emergency toothache on a Saturday. My family has been going to Dr. Lazar's office since then and my feelings about going to the dentist have changed.

The dentists and the staff in his office are professional, honest and sincere. They treat my family like their family.

My husband is severely handicapped therefore needs extra attention and a knowledgeable staff who would understand his condition and needs. They do and he is actually happy when he has to go to the dentist

I can't say enough about this office. The work is top quality and, best of all, our teeth and health have improved through the years, substantially. Thanks to them......"
