Verified Patient Reviews
I will try my best to never visit again. The wait time was unreasonable, and the staff seems not to care. There were multiple kids crying hysterically in the waiting room and nothing was done. It was not a good environment. I actually left before we saw the dentist (but after the cleaning) because we could wait no more. We had other commitments to make.
Changing dentists because always over an hour wait in crowded small waiting room with filthy chairs, and since they don't have after school hours I always have to child out of school only to not get seen nearly on time anyway. Not worth it.
My little sister loved Dr. Laracuente and the staff. My mother was very pleased as well. Thank you for the great service!
This was my 3 year old first time at this dentist. All of the staff members who assisted with my daughters checkup and cleaning were extremely friendly and patient and made her feel very comfortable. We saw Dr. Diaz who was also very friendly, polite and extremely informative. Very positive experience.
Staff unprofessional, uninformative, whats the point of making an appointment when patients come in after me but seen before me. waiting 1 hour and 30 mins UNACCEPTABLE
It was a day off for public schools and the office was filled-- the staff handled it well--my daughter was well taken care of.
It was good. The office did not open until 9 AM on the dot, so we waited outside for a few minutes. The doctor wasn't there when we got there either, so we had to wait. Other than the short waits, it was great.
Dr. Laracuente and her staff were very kind to my four-year-old son.
Very quick, was a first-timer w. 3 yr old.
I love it... my son was really existing. ..
We saw another physician and he was amazing with my 7 year old. I would definitely recommend this office. We had to wait about 45 minutes to see the DMD because their was a difficult situation but we didn't mind one bit. Customer service is important and that was their focus.
Excellent provider and staff! I highly recommend for all pediatric dental needs.
Me gusto como atendieron a mi hijo vi que tienen mucha paciencia a comparacion con otros esta dendista me gusto la recomendare
Everyghing was super fantastic the attention, the timing to be call, the doctor's patience with my daughter, since she is only 4 years old. The only inconvenient was that not all the tool and materials to be used by the doctor were set up properly. The detal assistant was calling out for every item the doctor needed and wasn't available in the room. This delayed the procedure and prolonged the anguish of my daughter. But I would give it a second try at this office because the really know how to threat a child.
PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A PEDRIATRIC DENTAL OFFICE. THEY DO NOT CALL AND CONFIRM WITH YOU, AND CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE AWARE THAT IT IS PEDRIATRIC OFFICE.
The staff was courteous and highly professional. The interactions with my daughter made her visit so much more easier and relaxing.
was very good, fast and they take care very well my daughter, in her first extraction.
It was my daughter's first visit to the dentist. Everyone was wonderful, from the receptionist to the hygienist, to the dentist. I would recommend.
I like how she works I am very satisfied with her service
Dr. Laracuente made my brother feel super comfortable during his first time at a dentist office. She is awesome!
Great staff and very patience dentists and nurses.
The staff is always pleasant and very helpful. The dentists are very informative and know they're stuff. I would definitely recommend Dr. Laracuente to any parent.
Not a very modern pediatric dentistry office. The X-rays don't seem digital (assistant brought out film for the doctor to look at- who does that anymore)and they don't have thyroid shields with their radiation aprons! Our children are vulnerable to radiation and they especially need Their neck covered during X-rays to protect the thyroid. Cleaning was efficient but the hygienist seemed to have trouble communicating to us in English. Please update your office with modern technology.
very friendly environment. Not a lot of waiting and everything was well organized. The staff were friendly and caring with my daughter, she loved it and is happy to to back to another visit.
I'm very pleased, this is a Great place! The Doctor and the staff are very friendly. My Daughter love how the Dr. treat her.
the procedure was quick and simple since i was just getting a cleaning. the people who treated me were nice. overall good service
You would be waiting forever and they over book the patients.
They are very professional and nice.
Dr. Laracuente and her staff are great! They are so friendly and make your child feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
Me pareció un buen servicio
Our kids have seen this dentist for a few years. She's very nice and the exams are good. However the wait times are often over an hour because there's overbooking of patients. We had one of our appointments re-scheduled, then never communicated to us properly. So when we showed up the dentist had already left. This doesn't reflect well on the management of this practice.
She is always a pleasure and great with kids.
It was a good visit.
it was a great experience
The wait was a little ridiculous and there needs to be better ventilation because their was a weird smell. They are also located in a basement.
Apart from the wait time, very friendly and professional. I would recommend to anyone.
Excelente atención y servicio. Cumplió con las expectativas y mi hijo se sintió seguro y confiado.
Got there a little earlier than our appointment and was expecting it to be at least open (prepartion for the day, etc) but the clinic actually opened at 9:00 (which was our appointment schedule). But the overall experience was fine and smooth. The clinic is very child friendly with toys and movies. My daughter loved the whole experience and they took time to explain every procedure and tools being used so my daughter felt very at ease. She's already looking forward to the next check-up!
Terrible que la entrada a este lugar . Ya que se supone que es un lugar para niños obvio que debe tener asceso a coches de bebes . Muy horrible casi me caigo con mi bebe al entrar .
Me gusta como lo atienden muy buen doctor..
The Guy was amazing and the young lady that did My son cleaning she was great she let him know everything she was doing and using he didn't bug out very pleased YOUR KID WILL LOVE IT
She is very professional
The wait time is far too long.
the best dentist for kids
She is very professional .
First time at this office..but was the best experience ever
I absolutely love this doctor! I take really good care of my girl's teeth, so we never had to get any procedure done, other than x-rays and fluor, but even seeing her in a short period of time, she is so great it amazes me! My only complaint is regarding the waiting time. My appointment was for 11am and I waited for about 45 mins. Strongly suggest this doctor.
Always a pleasure with Dr.Laracuente she very patient and very helpful.
I liked how she treated my daughter. My daughter was very worried but after she got the treatment she was happy. She liked the way the doctor handled her throughout. I wish the office was a bit more bigger because the waiting area is too congested to bring kids and wait until called. The toys in the wait area need to be taken care of as well. They need to be cleaned or replaced. Otherwise, treatment was good.
Fue excelente la Dra es una profesional tiene una alta calidad prfesional y su personal tambien
La Doctora es muy prfesional y personal tiene un conocimiento y profesionalismo tambien
This was my daughter first visit and I really liked.
Everyone & everything was absolutely great, except for the entrance. It's quite uncomfortable (stairs) if you have a stroller.
My husband took my 4 year old to see Dr. Laracuente and there were some issues with the appt. First off, we booked an appt to see her, but were seen by her associate - a man. He was not a good fit for my daughter or my husband and left them waiting for quite some time. He did not apologize at all for the wait time. Eventually, Dr. Laracuente came out and worked on my daughter and she was good with her, but the appt overall was just okay taking into account the issues.
I realy like it...
Wow really great experience at the appointment today. It felt like the whole staff was involved in our visit. Dr. Laracuente took her time with us and explained everything thoroughly to us and my daughter. The dental hygienist was very gentle cleaning my daughter's teeth. Five stars!
Terrific absolutely will recommend !!
today was our first visit to Dr Laracuente's office. All the staff including the dr herself are very friendly, attentive, engaging and courteous. office space is little tight but with the above stated . plus that can be over look. Wait was not that bad. Thanks. Mom and Mahaveen.
Muy,pero muy amable todos, desde el personal,hasta la excelente profesional Dra. Larga cuente . En fin una muy buena experiencia la visita tanto para mi hijo como para mi,gracias
Very good and friendly
Fue la primera vez que mis hijos consultaron a la dentista Dessire Laracuente y sus servicios fueron excelentes,desde el proceso de registrar al paciente y la consulta con la dentista. Mis hijos quedaron encantados con la limpieza que recibieron y apesar de que mi hija es muy nerviosa a la hora de ir al dentista,estuvo muy tranquila durante el procedimiento. Así es que definitivamente si recomendaría a la dentista Dessire Laracuente.
I would recommend dr laracuente to anybody she's very professional office was very clean and kid friendly
El Personal es excelente, super agradable, y el manejo con los ninos es extraordinario.
My daughter loves when she goes to see Dr. Laracuente. She is very patient, very thorough and we never feel rushed. She explains every step of the way and she gave my daughter a little toy at the end. Would highly recommend.
Love it! She was very patient, sweet and professional with my baby! Highly recommend!!
It was my daughter first dentist appt and though she cried the dentist soothed her & swiftly but gently cleaned her teeth. The dentist explained every step & was in control. She also attended to my son who had no cavities and awarded him for a great job.
Staff was very friendly, great with my daughter. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
The doctor is real nice and professional. What I didn't like is how I got there on time, and got to see the doctor two hours later. Beside the waiting, I like the doctor. I will have to waiting for my next appointment to unsure myself this is my kids official dentist.
Doctor laracuente is really cute, sweet, she takes enought time to explain everything. I really recommend the doctor, was the first visited of my boy to the dentist and he felt very comfortable with her an her staff!!! ( my baby is 22 months )
It was great, my baby didin't like it of course, but she starts crying as soon as she see people in scrubs..but the doctor and her team made me feel very comfortable they are super professional and very patient...I will definitely come back again. I highly recommend her and if it's your firsts baby's appointment you'll love her!! and they speak both english and spanish which is a plus!!
