This was my first time meeting Dr. V and his team and I was so surprised by how friendly and nice they all were. I rarely have experiences like this with doctors so it was really refreshing to see someone whocan inform me in an easy to understand way and also listen and ask questions about me and my dental history in a genuine manner. I highly recommend Dr. V!

I had surgery done with Dr. V which was my first time getting this sort of dental surgery so I was quite nervous. Dr. V and his team made me feel so comfortable and informed throughout the whole process and theywere extremely available for me in the days leading up to the surgery to talk and reiterate information. Dr. V also called to check up with me a few hours after the survey which was so nice and unexpected. This is definitely the best experience I’ve had with any sort of doctor ever - highly recommend him!

Dr. Volchonok and his entire team are extremely professional and personable. I immediately felt welcomed by their front desk (Zoe is awesome!!). Already feeling like I have been part of the practice for years, I was brought back to the roomwhere I spoke with Mo. Once again, I felt extremely comfortable and all my nerves (I hate the dentist) were at ease. I came in due to minor pain in my last remaining wisdom tooth and for a cleaning. Dr. Volchonok entered the room and he maintained the calm, welcoming energy that I felt upon entering the practice. The cleaning went great and we put a plan together for my pesky wisdom tooth. Two days later I was back for its removal! The facility is clean, the staff is knowledgeable, and booking appointments is simple (my biggest pet peeve is a doctor you have to book weeks in advanced). I will definitely be returning...Zoe already booked my next cleaning! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I had an absolutely wonderful experience in Dr. Volchonok'a office. He really took the time to explain all of the procedures to me, as well as the best treatment options and outcomes- he really seems to care about his patients. Ihad a very compfortble experience. He took great care of my tooth sensitivity and gum recession. Best periodontist I've seen in the city BY FAR! I highly recommend!

I would like to advise anyone who's planing to visit this dr , first check your insurance, they will not tell you if they will accept your insurance or not, even when they have a copy of it with your id. The reception told me to pay cash after i saw the dr!!! b/ c they do not accept my insurance, and she already had my copy of insurance card and my id, unacceptable, I felt like I throw a way my money ??

Dr. Volchonok is very attentive and friendly, and I have been very pleased with his work. He takes the time to explain in as much detail as you want and always open to answer questions. Its one of those small thingstoo, but I like that he checks in with you as hes working to make sure your not in pain or discomfort and tell you how things are going and much longer it will take. Its a small bedside mannor thing, but I think it really shows he cares.

Dr. Volchonok is a wonderful care provider. I came to him with serious issues and he's turned my mouth around in less than four months. He takes the time to describe in depth the steps to take and the reasons foreach. He even called and texted me on a holiday weekend to check on recovery after a procedure. As a skittish patient, he even prescribes me a relaxant to take before my appointments. Best doctor I've been to, hands down.

Dr. Volchonok and staff made going to the dentist an absolute pleasure. There was no wait time and the procedure was explained in full and executed perfectly. They even called to check in later in the day! It's nice to feel like you're more than just a patient.

Dr. Volchonok was extremely pleasant and friendly during the whole process. He took the time to explain everything and answer any questions before and after my appointments. During the day of my surgery he ensured I was good and numb includinglonger lasting novocain to help with pain management. The best review I can give any dental procedure is I felt no pain during the process. No dental surgery is fun to have, but to get through it with the least amount of pain is a A+ in my book. I highly recommend Dr. Volchonok.

Dr. Volchonok is truly fantastic. I have recommended him to everyone I know in the area. I'm an exceptionally anxious patient when it comes to anything with my teeth. Dr. Volchonok recognized this almost instantly in my first visit and immediatelyput me at ease. He's thorough, gentle and makes sure his patient knows exactly what to expect at every turn. Dr. V took a conservative approach to address gum recession on my front tooth, which I greatly appreciated. Ultimately I went through with the gum graft and couldn't be happier with the result! Not only did I not feel an ounce of pain during the entire procedure, but I also now have two perfectly aligned gums on my front teeth.

I highly recommend Dr. Volchonok. I am entering the later stages of a challenging implant procedure that involved a decent amount of bone loss. Dr. Volchonok's work has been exemplary. He is professional, knowledgeable, thorough and highlyresponsive. He has stayed in close coordination with my primary dentist and kept me consistently informed about the current and future state of things. Manages expectations well and the work he has done looks great.
