Great first visit, was referred by a longtime patient. Dr. Pollak and his staff were all very lovely and he calmed my nerves about a tooth issue that just flared up right before a long trip out of the country. I'm officially breaking up with my old dentist. :)

What else could anyone want in a dentist? Knows how to make the work as pain free as possible, does a good clean professional job, saved me from needing future painful, expensive procedures. And has an uplifting friendly personality, much likethat Holiday Elf that’s a Dentist. Oh and most importantly he remembers that there’s a flesh and blood human attached to that tooth on the other end!

Dr. Pollack is kinda a chatty kathy. Nice guy, but the appointment took almost 2x as long then it needed to as he wanted to tell me all about his first love and dance lessons. At first is was charming but25 mins later, I just wanted my teeth to be taken care of. IF YOU ARE IN A HURRY DO NOT GO HERE. Also they do estimated insurance, I am not sure what that means but the system is very antiquated. When I needed my records switched to a new dentist, it took them over a week to get back to me, when I called/emailed daily.

Very professional! Dr Charles Pollak makes you feel comfortable while he works his magic. Very informative and caring. He explains everything while he's working , which is rather insightful. If your teeth can be saved he will do his best todo so. He's not in the business of shady practices like so many other dentists. He's the man for the job take my word for it. I've had an extraction done by this genie of a dentist. I didn't feel a thing! He has this system to keep the pain away that's totally amazing while he charmingly goes on with casual conversations. By the end of the convo "poof" tooth extracted. And I'm amazed by this. Take my word. This is the guy you're looking for. Thank you so much Charles! You're making a difference which is highly appreciated.

I had a molar with a very deep cavity that needed repairing. An old filling (done by another dentist) had broken and fallen out, leaving behind a huge hole that was filled with ancient decay. Before he began the filling, Dr.Pollak gave me a mirror so I could look inside my mouth at the tooth as he pointed out the decayed areas - a bit gruesome, yet fascinating to see what had been slowly developing in there. We all hear about "tooth decay"... it's quite another thing to SEE it - inside your own tooth! Dr. Pollak has a wonderful technique for getting you numb - you barely feel the needle going in, if at all. I used to dread those needles as the worst part of a dental visit, but with Dr. Pollak you needn't have any fear at all. His injections are amazingly gentle and practically painless. (Honestly, a finger prick feels worse!) Dr. Pollak's humorous anecdotes kept me entertained and distracted while the tooth was being repaired. He is a great story teller, and his kind, gentle and attentive manner will help you feel relaxed no matter what the procedure is. My daughter had a wisdom tooth extracted by him, and it was slipped out and on the tray before she even noticed, All in all, an excellent dentist and a fine, good-hearted human being who has his patients' best interests at heart.
