Was able to get a last minute consultation with Dr. Tolchinsky. She was friendly, informative, and seemed to genuinely care about the issues I've been having with my wisdom teeth. I didn't hesitate to book a 2nd appointment for a cleaning later this week. Highly recommended.

Hygienist was rough and harsh, and appointment didn’t start until an hour after scheduled. The dentist was lovely but that didn’t overcome these other issues.

My teeth-cleaning visit was a little unusual and took almost 2 hours. I always do a better brushing job right before dentist appointments, and this time I did a light floss too since I had meat for lunch. I don't flossoften, so it makes my gums a bit swollen and bleed, which was my mistake going into the dentist visit. I've always had good teeth and teeth-cleanings are usually a breeze. When the hygienist showed up after my X-rays, she took a look at my mouth, and (exaggerating here) threw her hands up like "Oh jeez, worst teeth and gum health ever!" I'm like, yeah, I just flossed so it's not like I got inflamed and bleeding gums like this forever. Well, the remainder of the 2 hours at the office involved being lectured on the need to floss. She even got out a mirror and was about to teach me, like a child, how to do it step by step, until I interrupted her. I thought it was a little above and beyond. Also, the cleaning was a little rushed, despite how long it took. I always enjoyed getting my teeth cleaned, but this was rude - like she wants to prove her point my gums are weak and repeatedly poked her sharp metal took at them as it buzzed. I had to get some numbing medicine to get through it. There was also an awkward 10 minute period when she kept turning my jaws, checking my teeth, and going back and forth to take notes...with a little "tsk tsk, omg your teeth are so bad. Why didn't your last dentist catch this." Of course, as most dentists do, I have to get my teeth crowding pointed out (one at the bottom front). Now, I've wanted Invisalign, as soon as I could afford it. Not to outdo the reaction to my temporary mildly swollen gums, I got new lectures about how my teeth are gonna fall out if I don't get adjustments that day. The hygienist made me watch a marketing video with a brochure in hand, before Dr. Tolchinsky walked in and began her spiel. I must say I think Dr. Tolchinsky is very professional, and I kept an open mind, because I do care about my oral health. However, I just don't need to keep hearing about how this temporary swelling means anything more, or my teeth will fall out because my bottom tooth doesn't have enough room. At the end, for good measure, their "Invisalign coordinator" came in and made her pitch about my long term oral health. Seriously, I'd afford it today if I could. I ended it there, and walked out as soon as the assistant took off my apron.

It was fine. Office told me my appt was at 3:30, but I'd booked for 4. Luckily they were able to accomodate my "late" arrival. I was SURE I'd booked 4! (Confirmed by text, and they said they called but nothing was on my andwering machine.)

I have had some terrible dentists in the past, and when my crown fell out for no good reason this weekend I was not excited to go back to those guys. I'm glad I chose Dr. Tolchinsky. She is friendly, funny,and thorough, not the mention the office is quite pleasant. She explained everything to me clearly, which is great as I still have a lot more work to do and need to schedule everything just right. I'll update how my new crown, gum line sealant for sensitivity, and whitening go later on.

Love love love Dr. Tolchinsky! I've been a patient of hers for over three years and she has always been incredibly attentive, honest, and careful. She referred me to great specialists when I needed more complicated procedures done AND communicatedwith them regularly about my long-term treatment plan. She went above and beyond to give me the results we both wanted for my teeth. She never tried to rush me into any decisions and was very sensitive to my financial limitations when she presented me with my treatment options. I would tell anyone to see her in a heartbeat!

When I got there, I did not have to wait long for assistant to take me into the procedure room. Personnel was very attentive, soft spoken and pleasant to talk to. Visit to a dentist is no fun to me, butevery one in the clinic made my visit as less painful as possible. Dr. Evelina was very professional and knowledgeable. She took time to listen to my concerns and answered all my questions. Her recommendations were right on the spot and easy to follow. I'm going to see Dr. Evelina very soon, and will absolutely recommend her to my friends.
