This was my first visit with Dr. Buyco, but it will not be my last! Everyone in the office was so welcoming and took the time to answer all of my questions while explaining everything that occurred during my visit clearly. She was incredibly informative and kept checking in to make sure I was comfortable. I will absolutely be switching to Dr. Buyco as my permanent dentist.

I had had a terrible experience with another dentist, and was referred to Dr. Buyco by a friend. I was apprehensive after being taken advantage of previously, but Dr. Buyco squelched my doubt and offered nothing but support and kindness. Do yourself a huge favor and see her for all of your dental needs. She is kind, honest, she listens to your concerns and walks you through all the steps she is taking. Plus the office is incredibly inviting, there is no wait and the staff is as wonderful as she is. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Buyco, and have been singing her praise since my first appointment.

I am normally uneasy at dental appointments but Dr Buyco was very professional and helped to calm my nerves. The upscale facilities were clean and the massage chairs were a bonus. My appointment was for a cleaning and to repair a filling and I am extremely satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend going to see Dr Buyco. Five stars!

E: Dr. Buyco is one of the most informational and patient dentists I've seen in a long time. I received a cleaning and whitening consultation during my first visit. She was also able to catch a deep cavity my previous dentist somehow had missed, and her thoroughness is much appreciated. Dr. Buyco explained each procedure and answered every question. On a separate visit, I completed a treatment of Zoom whitening and experienced no sensitivity at all! I thank this to Dr Buyco's recommendation of a special toothpaste that I used for a few weeks before the treatment. Now I have pearly white teeth and I am so happy! I will definitely be coming back for all my dental needs.

I arrived about 5 minutes before my appointment and was seen right on time, which was unexpected given it was a lunchtime slot. Dr. Buyco was excellent. She explained to me the tools she was using, what she was doing and why--something my dentists haven't done previously. When I asked Dr. Buyco questions, she offered thoughtful responses and I never once felt rushed. Though I came in for a cleaning, I told her I was considering some cosmetic procedures (whitening, invisalign) and she gave me all of the information without any pressure to move forward, which I appreciated. She is very kind and I felt like I was definitely in good hands. Highly recommended!

Dr. Buyco is a great dentist! She makes you feel very relaxed during your visit. Each time I visit the office I have no wait at all, I'm immediately seen. I also really like the technique of how she cleans my teeth it's a little extra than what my childhood dentist was doing my entire life. The staff is also exceptional and very considerate and caring, especially if you are a nervous or scared person of the dentist. I highly recommend.

Dr. Buyco is very caring, attentive and professional. During my dental cleaning, she talked me through what she was doing and why - something that my childhood dentist never did. She informed me of my good dental hygiene, but also how I could improve. Her technique was great, tools were of high quality and I felt very comfortable. Overall, honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had at the dentist!

I came in with a broken front tooth and I had a wedding to go to the next day! I was mortified, but Dr Buyco calmed me. She got me out of pain and fixed my tooth just in time. She made me a temporary tooth and next week I am going back for the final crown. Dr. Buyco is a life saver and I am so grateful I found her.

Ericka was wonderful! The office is great: clean, professional, and welcoming. It is very convenient to get to and find. The ladies at reception are very attentive and quick. The dental hygienist made sure I was comfortable while getting my x-rays (the chair gives you a light back massage!). Ericka showed me exactly what was going on with my teeth, and did not dismiss any details.

Dr. Buyco works very quickly. The only wait time I had was the few minutes it took me to fill out new patient forms. She also understood my time constraint and was able to fill 9 cavities so that I wouldn't have to return for a 2nd appointment. It's been a week now and I have had no problems since the appointment. I recommend Dr. Buyco.

My procedures lasted an hour and she was patient with me, explained every steps in detail and I never felt rushed when I had questions or concerns. She is a truly great dentist. I am now recommending all my friends and colleagues to her. I am so glad to have found a general dentist who I trust.

My appointment with Dr. Buyco was probably the best dental appointment I've had in my life. Everyone in the office was warm, friendly, and highly efficient. I didn't spend a second in the waiting room. As soon as I checked in I was escorted to the patient room and was seen by Dr. Buyco within minutes of my arrival. I am a new patient, and went in for a cleaning. I was stunned to discover that the entire appointment (x-rays, conversation with Dr. Buyco about the x-rays and future care, and the cleaning) took about 35-40 minutes total! I will definitely be back!

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Buyco. Fantastic always and pain-free. She explains every procedure, from fillings to a simple cleaning, very thoroughly and with care. My company recently switched to a new insurance plan. She still saw me and found a way to make it work, although she was out of network, without causing me any headache in having to look for another dentist. Her team is always accommodating and make the entire process swift and seamless under her direction.
