"When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best"
Read what people are saying about us.
Dr. Bleeker’s assistant was incredible helping me navigate the insurance maze to ensure that I received the maximum insurance benefits that my policy allowed. My particular case was actually a medical condition, but the insurance initially denied coverage, wanting me to see another prosthodontist who was under their plan, or use my dental benefits, which were substantially less. Frankly, Dr. Bleeker is the most qualified prosthodontist for what I needed to have done, and I refused to see anyone else. Deborah was absolutely tenacious in helping me communicate effectively with the insurance company to get approval for the procedure, using the benefits guaranteed by my coverage.
For Dr. Bleeker:
Dr. Bleeker helped me to overcome my hyper nasality. Having been born with a hare lip cleft palate, I had suffered with this condition my whole life, without realizing that it could be rectified. The procedure requires incredibly patience, compassion and skill, and Dr. Bleeker was fantastic. For the first time in my life, I now have normal speech!!!
