Dr. Briar Dent is an exceptional surgeon. She repaired/reconstructed a parathyroid surgical scar site from 8 1/2 months ago where a permanent stitch was wrongly left in place and was painful and pulling on a muscle in my neck. Dr. Dent is profoundly skillful, kind and caring about her patients, and immensely dedicated to the quality of work she performs. I cannot stress enough how very lucky I am to have had her as my surgeon. She is truly outstanding.

Dr. Dent is a treasure adorned with gifted hands and the gentle reassurance of an angel. She treated me as if I was her only patient in her office minutes before surgery and during her follow up phone call with me. Her Nurse D is extremely courteous and filled with praise and admiration for Dr. dent meticulousness and expertise.

Dr Dent is honestly one of the most compassionate, kind doctors I've ever met. I actually started tearing up a bit as she talked to my seven year old who was feeling frustrated and afraid. Her entire staff is a delight, and we were just so pleased from start to finish. I've only met her once, but trusted her completely after just a few short minutes.

Dr. Dent and her assistant Deneesha are TREMENDOUS assets to Westmed. Dr. Dent is the epitome of professionalism with an absolutely fantastic demeanor. She is an amazing doctor who put us at ease immediately and was thorough, knowledgeable and kind. She did not rush us and went to great lengths to ensure we understood everything and answered all of our questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Dent to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
