Great clinician (thorough & highly skilled) with an amazing staff | 5+ stars
I've learned about Dr. Lawson's office through the word of mouth from co-workers who have been his patients for several years. Having had quite sad encounters with various practitioners in New York and California, I was a bit sceptical to try another dentist. However, after experiencing Dr. Lawson's initial visit I was very pleased with his service and willing to continue the treatment. Dr. Lawson is very thorough, meticulous, and extremely good at his work. His first exam is comprehensive and it includes cancer screening which is not a common practice among dentists, in general. He also uses loupes (not common) and an intraoral camera (not common) to diagnose patients. Dr. Lawson appears as an honest man with a patient's best interest in mind. He presented a treatment plan with options to help me set the priorities and prepare financially for future modalities. Some may say that his prices might seem a bit elevated. But I say, after doing the math - it's a win-win situation. I have spent several thousand dollars on dentists whose work Dr. Lawson had to fix or remove. I chose the other dentists based on a price tag - not their skills, knowledge, and office technology - a not-a-good idea after all. I am also pleased with Dr. Lawson's office staff, especially his assistant, dental hygienist, and office manager. These ladies are efficient and great at their work. All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Lawson's dental services. In my opinion, based on 15 years of experience with dentists on the East and West Coasts, Dr. Lawson is one of the best clinicians in the field of general and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr Lawson was recommended by my neighbor who had implants done by him. I have been seeing Dr.Lawson for about 6 years and he and his staff have done extensive work for me. I am very pleased and have recommended him whenever I am asked about dentists. On my first visit I had not been to a dentist in 15 years and needed a filling, two crowns and some peridontal work plus cleaning. It took several visits but was done with as little pain as possible and the results are great. The last four years I have just been going for regular cleanings and I recommend his hygenist highly. He takes great care in adjusting your bite after doing work on a tooth and what a difference that makes! I am very happy with the results of my treatment and give him and his practice five stars.
