My dad was a dentist, my sister married a dentist and since their death and retirement respectively I have been on a quest to find the perfect dentist in Ocala. I felt I had been spoiled in that my teeth were always cared for by people who loved me and I trusted that their decisions were in my best interest and not to fill their pocketbooks. The first time I visited Dr. Amir I was blown away by how beautiful and peaceful the environment of his suite was and particularly the view from the window. Perhaps the only view of the sunset in all of Ocala. He has a genuine joy and earnestness that fosters a feeling of confidence and trust that he knows what he’s doing; he listened attentively and compassionately, and explained all the options and possible treatment plans with patience and clarity. Just the way he administered the novocaine was so gentle and painless that I didn’t even know when he was finished. That night he himself called to check to see how I was doing and encouraged me to call and ask questions whenever I needed. He is very meticulous about all the procedures- especially guarding against decay- making sure margins are perfect and motivating and inspiring me to eat the healthy way he eats to prevent further problems. Dr. Jamie Amir has a heart of gold and a brain filled with cutting edge knowledge and experience which he generously shares. He is involved with gifting the homeless and needy with free care during the year. The staff are equally friendly and trained to make you feel comfortable with big smiles and kind words and helpful suggestions. Its like winning the lottery when you find the perfect periodontal surgeon who treats you with the kindness, respect and consideration of a long time friend coupled with a personal professional approach which makes the problems of getting your teeth treated infinitely more enjoyable.
