Verified Patient Reviews
I have been to this dentist a few times and everytime it has been a good experience. Everything is explained well and done at a pace to ensure little to no pain. The staff are very friendly. Would highly recommend!
My first visit with Dr. Shuster went very well. The office staff was amicable and helpful. They helped me with understanding my insurance and other things. Although I couldn’t get much done, Dr.Shuster told me specifically why and what to do. She recommended others that would be able to help. Also scheduled a follow-up appointment to make sure everything would come out okay. Dr. Shuster was very warm and comforting. I definitely liked her and will be going back for future check-ups.
First time there. No wait time. Office was nice and clean. All the staff was super friendly, engaging and informative... especially Dr. Shuster. Also very accommodating when calling regarding insurance prior to the appointment. Would highly recommend! Will definitely be returning.
Dr. Shuster is not only one of the best dentists I've had, she's one of the best doctors in general. She's gentle, intelligent, and very straightforward about any procedure you might need to have. She's incredibly thorough and answers every question. I had a lot of dental issues because of a long gap in treatment and insurance, and I found myself looking forward to my appointments (which is rare for a dentist).
All of the staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was very comfortable and they are accommodating. It was my first time back to a dentist in a couple years and they made the visit back very easy and addressed all of my dental issues quickly and efficiently.
I got anxiety just thinking about my cavity filling with chipped tooth appointment and I wait to long to go. But Dr. Shuster has no wait to get started and told me how much longer after every step so I could be calmer. And it was a quick and painless procedure. Thank you Ella!!
Friendly staff and service. A long time customer who has never had any issues with her at all. Highly recommended.
She is the BEST! Caring and loving her patients! Gem of a girl
My daughter (12) was scared of the dentist. Till she went to Dr. Shuster's office. Amazing environment. Friendly staff. It was a great experience all around. Everyone was SO nicr. Now she can not wait to go back!
Dr. Shuster is the best dentist I've ever had! Because of her, my lifelong fear of dentists has passed and I feel comfortable. She is very professional and has a light touch. I highly recommend her.
Excellent. They were ready for me and the appointment was on time and efficient.
I am new to the area and it was time to establish a new dentist. I went on ZocDoc to search for highly recommended dentists in the area. I came across Academy Dental, Dr Ella Shuster. I was extremely impressed by all the five star reviews she had amongst at least 50 patients. I decided to make an appointment for a cleaning and check up. From the moment I walked in the door, I was greeted by very friendly staff. The hygienist Jocelyn performed the cleaning and it truly was the best X-ray and cleaning I ever had. I have weak teeth and require regular dental care. I had to go back to evaluate my one tooth. Having had experiences with not getting numb, I was anxious about the procedure. Let me say that Dr Shuster truly listened to me and took her time to ensure I was numb and comfortable before the procedure. She walked me through each step. She is highly skilled with excellent technique. I left thinking how this experience has changed my anxiety level about getting numb and my outlook about dental care. I can't thank Dr Shuster and her staff enough.
It was good to be treated with professionalism and care.I am so grateful that we have these quality providers so near to home. Thanks for being there. Khatuna
I experience severe anxiety with dental work. Dr Schuster was very patient, and made me feel comfortable and in control. She talked me through the process each step of the way, and regularly checked in to make sure I was comodrtable, even offering periodic breaks (which I didn't even need because of how easy everything was). Very grateful that I found Dr Schuster - I'm cautiously optimistic that going to the dentist will be easier and more anxiety free in the future.
She was excellent with my 13 year old. I love how she explains everything about the treatment before doing anything. It makes you feel at ease.
Dr. Shuster is a wonderful and caring doctor. She takes the time needed to explain procedures and gives loving care to her patients. You are not just another patient to her but instead treated like a family member. She is very intelligent and skilled in her profession.
Fantastic, Dr. Shuster was really patient and explained everything slowly and made sure I was comfortable with the plan. The office is great - individual TVs in the patient rooms, where you can select a show from netflix - great for someone with dentist anxiety like myself!
I love Dr. Shuster. She takes her time to explain procedures and also takes the fear out of going to the dentist.
Dr Shusterman is Fantastic! My extraction and bone graft was completely painless. Very nice personality and professional but friendly manner. I'm very happy I found her. I will be referring friends to her for sure.

I happened to find Dr. Ella Shuster by chance, as she was one of very few dentists who would see new clients...on an emergency basis...on a saturday! I have having very bad pain in one particular tooth and facial swelling due to another dentists careless work. I was very pleasantly surprised as Dr. Shuster was kind, took time to explain what was going on and what needed to be done, and she said she is in no rush and would stay as long as needed to help me (even if it was after their closing hours). Dr. Shuster is about 40 minutes away from me, and out of the way, but I am going to continue to going to her as she is, by far, one of the best dentists I have ever went to. She really enjoys her job and truly cares about her patients. The staff are all great, too! I highly recommend Dr. Shuster and am thankful for her helping me!!

The visit was very efficient I did not wait at all and went right back for my appointment. I also felt like Ella explained what she was going to do very throughly and I felt very comfortable at the office.
Dr Shuster is extremely knowledgeable, she doesn't rush, explains everything. She has a state of the art office with great staff. Going to the dentist isn't such a 'chore' when going to see Dr Shuster. Highly recommend her.
