The office was beautiful and the wait time was only about 10 minutes. They had a tv with Netflix in the patient room I was in, so that made the entire process more comforting being able to watch whatever I liked! Dr. Lin was very professional and was ready and willing to answer any and all questions that I had.

Great visit! I went in for a teeth cleaning and general checkup. I was about 15 minutes late to my appointment, and I was kindly and swiftly accommodated, which is not common, and something I really appreciate. All of the staff members were great, really sweet and funny. After noticing that the TV was logged out of Netflix, my hygienist logged in using a friend's personal account so I would have something to distract me from the not- so pleasant process of teeth cleaning. Definitely had a more "millennial" vibe that was simultaneously very professional. I will be back :)

Barry is very friendly and an excellent dentist! I really appreciate his approach to working with patients. He isn't interested in making you feel guilty or trying to scare you into taking better care of your teeth. This was my first experience finding a dentist in the city, so I was nervous about getting pushed into a number of unnecessary things, but Barry was very pragmatic in his recommendations and I never felt pressured. I've since had a couple of fillings done by Barry and I would recommend his work in that regard as well!
