everyone there was very professional and straight forward. answered all my questions. i recommend dr. tolchinsky to anyone seeking a good dentist
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 floss often, 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.)
Dr T was very thorough in the evaluation of my teeth and explaining what needs to be done by prioritizing. She was able to see something that other dentist did not see. Dr. T made me feel comfortable and at ease.
Dr Tolchinsky is amazing. She always take the time to explain whats going on with my son as well as giving great advice and tips on how to keep he's teeth and braces in top shape. The doctor and her hygenist are very thorough and nice.
The office staff is always extremely friendly. Very short wait time. The doctor and hygienist really care about the well being of their patients and offer great tips for making sure you are taking care of your teeth. I always recommend this office to my friends and each one who goes loves it!
Dr. Tolchinsky was great - very friendly, not pushy on any treatments, and gave useful information for the future. I didn't love the office itself, but things were clean and there wasn't a long wait.
Very pleasant treatment, my chipped tooth was perfectly fixed, very happy - although the wait was way too long!!
Pleasant experience overall. An incredibly clean office with very friendly staff. One assistant had to be told twice not to wear latex gloves even though that info was in my chart. However, the other three professionals I interacted with were amazing.
The entire staff and Dr. Tolchinsky were all very professional, efficient and friendly. It was my first time there and I will definitely be getting my dental care there in the future.
Very professional Handled my emergency to my satisfaction Made recommendations for future treatment
Great! Loved everyone in the office and I enjoyed watching Pixar movies during my cleaning. I would recommend this location to all my friends
I love Dr. Tolchinsky.
She very thorough, great bedside manners. The entire staff is professional and the wait time is very limited.
We love Signature Smile & Evelina! I have been seeing her for years, and in the last 9 years since, my husband and two young children have joined me for regular cleanings. Never ever before did I look forward to dental appointments--now, it's a family event and a trip to Brooklyn.
She was very professional.
Dr. Tolchinsky was incredibly nice and informative. I'd been without a dental visit in a number of years and she made me feel at ease. I would recommend her and her staff without hesitation. She is a great dentist and cares about her patients.
She and her assistants were very kind and helpful. Dr. Tolchinsky was able to explain things clearly and knowledgably. Overall, a very good experience.
The entire staff was great. Very clean and very comfortable, even for a guy who is more than slightly afraid of the dentist.
Dr. Tolchinsky is great. She's thorough, patient and has great bedside manner.
The office was easy to find, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the various doctors were very informative about treatments, diagnosis, and going over pricing for everything involved.
Very high pressure for opting in to optional treatments not covered by insurance, it was so constant I ended up switching dentists.
Great with kids!
Evelina has great bed side manner and walked me through all my questions. I've recommended her to several of my friends.
Long wait (40 minutes) was the only con
Clean environment, friendly staff, and gentle care and explanation of the entire process.
Very good experience, the Dr. was clear in her communication and very helpful in describing how to care for my teeth between appointments.
Dr. Tolchinsky takes time with her patients; so thoughtful and generous. She hire competent and caring staff, too. Nicole -- what a pro!
Dr. Evelina was very friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent bedside manners.
Slight wait time but no hassle, the doctor was professional, kind and courteous. Great experience.
Dr. Evelina Tolchinsky is very knowledgeable in the dental field and provides friendly, caring, courteous and professional service.
fantastic dentist. detailed and careful and front office does fantastic work
Dentist has great bedside manner and answers all questions thoughtfully. Doesn't push unnecessary treatment. Hygienist didn't seem as thorough as the one I've seen before, but very kind and gentle. Wait times happen, they were very apologetic.
Professional, courteous and thorough.
Dr. Tochinsky is fantastic.
Fantastic Dentist office. Highly recommended.
Every dentist chair should be a massage chair! The facilities are clean and new and the staff is great. Been going here for years and have never had to wait more than ten minutes to be seen.
Signature Smile is great! super friendly, welcoming, intelligent staff
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.
Great visit and wonderful doctor.
Very kind hygienists and dentist!
Evelina was fantastic. She answered all of my questions before I asked them and was extremely thorough in her explanations. Her staff was also very warm and helpful.
I was happy the past few times I came here. Very professional and state of the art technology. However, I had a routine dental cleaning recently, and I noticed that the hygienist almost seemed like she was rushing to get through my cleaning. Rushing to the point where this normal procedure was very discomforting. I had not experienced this on my previous visits. I will go back, but I might mention it to the dentist if I notice this again.
I love her and her staff. Great and fast
Very pleasant visit. The doctor is knowledgeable, kind and patient. It was a pleasure.
A really excellent team. I will definitely be a repeat client!
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, but every 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.
Evelina did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend!
Courteous, professional, knowledgeable. Nice office and recent equipment.
Everyone was very friendly, efficient, and professional. I went for a weekday appointment at the end of the day and was seen immediately, even though I arrived early. Highly recommend.
Excellent dentist and great staff. Heartily will recommend and return again soon!
Always a pleasant experience from check in to the hygienists to the doctor. Caring, comfortable & knowledgeable. i'm worried that if i tell more people, the secret will get out... but i'll take that chance to let them know i appreciate the great service.
Love her and her staff:-)
Loved my experience there, which is saying a lot for a dentist appt! Staff put me at ease from the beginning. Cleaning was quick and painless even though it had been 3 yrs since my last cleaning. Dr. Tolchinsky was so thorough and informative! She was not rushed at all and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend this team!
This was my first visit to Pineapple Walk which was a little challenging to find initially since it's not really a "street" but a "walk." Pr: Evelina Tolchinsky was very attentive and thorough. She spent 20 minutes or more to discuss my dental history and possible issue with one of my older route canals. Referred me to an endodontist for consultation. They only con I had was with the hygienist. Although she was very sweet and considerate I found her technique inconsistent, rushed and slightly awkward. All that to say, I will be back for Evelina is any dental work is needed.
Nice and thorough!
Always a pleasure!
Very professional. She was informative, to the point and very kind
Absolutely loved it! First time going to the dentist and called to say I would be 10 minutes late and it was no problem.. They are very professional and I booked another appointment for next week!
I had to bring my 7-year old daughter and my 7 month old son. They entertained my daughter with a movie, and they fed and played with my baby boy. I could simply close my eyes and actually ENJOY the cleaning. Unbelievable!
Very prof. She explained in detail all issues
The dental hygienist wasn't the best but the dentist was good. Hygienist was very rough not great bed side manor
EXCELLENT overall dentist experience!
So wonderful! I've been to four other dentists in my life. I thought going to the dentist was just *supposed* to be miserable. Both Dr. Tolchinsky and the hygienist were so wonderful. The hygienist made everything easier by letting me know how far along we were, checking in frequently about discomfort, etc. She was also very informative. Dr. Tolchinsky was thorough, answering all of my questions. I can't recommend them highly enough!
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 communicated with 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!
Very informative and tentative to my needs.
Friendly, thorough, and a great job.
She listened and was reassuring and professional. She explained what I needed to know and made me feel comfortable.
Evelina was very informative about the procedure and on how I can improve the health of my teeth. I would highly recommend her. The nurse that handled the cleaning was also very careful and gentle, fairly painless which is always good!
About the delay: this was the first time I've had to wait any real length of time at this office and the receptionist did let me know that they were behind schedule. So I left and had lunch and came back and was seen right away. It ended up working out fine.
Dr. Tolchinsky is not only nice and pleasant, but very knowledgable. It was the first time seeing her, and I received an yearly check-up, as well as three fillings. Very happy with her, as well as the entire staff.
Great bedside manner, quick service, thorough explanation of procedures and follow-up treatments.
Excellent service, very clean, and friendly. I highly recommend this dentist!!
Dr. Tolchisky is wonderful. I needed braces and dental implants, and she referred me to an excellent orthodontist and an equally excellent periodontist. It was a somewhat complicated case, and she was amazing about communicating with both specialists and monitoring the progress over the course of 2+ years before doing the final restoration herself. She took a great interest in my case, and always has excellent bedside manner. I wholeheartedly recommend her!
Courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Thankfully and once again, my overall experience was fantastic as well as educational. Kudos!
nice staff, nice doctor, easy process.
As always perfect, no complaints here.
Evelina is great. Very detailed-oriented in checking out my dental situations and very patient in explaining to me the problems and solutions. Appointment booking was efficient and waiting time was very manageable. She has a beautiful and clean office and the equipment is fairly advanced. Would strongly recommend her.
I always get very attentive care. Dr. Tolchinsky is the best!!!
She's amazing. So easy going, knowledgable, and friendly. It is always a pleasure to visit them every 6 months. Who knew? I used to dread going to the dentist.
Great visit! A very comfortable environment and the staff was great!
Shes kind and knowledgable.
Excellent. I had a root canal and it was totally painless.
Both Evelina and the hygienist (Victoria maybe?) were very considerate about how much pain they were putting me through :) Can't ask for much more after 3 years of skipping dental appointments - thanks again!
As good as a trip to the dentist could be
I love it as much as anyone can love going to the dentist. They see me quickly, Dr. Tolchinsky is friendly, and the cleaning is quick and painless. Thanks!
This dentist is most certainly the best, most educated and most helpful of any dentist I've ever had since visiting dentists for over 20yrs. She answered all of my questions and concerns with ease and great articulation.
Wow! Says it all after many years of not seeing a dentist, I think I finally found a dentist I can say I love. I am your typical patient deathly afraid of the Dentistb but guess what all you scaredy cats (like me) be afraid no more if you got insurance or the money go see her immediately. Te Doctor & her staff are professional, friendly, knowledgable and compassionate. If you fear the existence of pain, I say fear no more because while pain is part if the process it's definitely not the norm. I strongly, I highly, no I insist if you really want a good dentist that's concerned about her patients and want there mouth in the best of health call, go there ASAP.
Very informative and understanding to patient's needs!
Very professional and thorough! Awesome cleaning,! Overall Excellent!
She is amazing! Lover her and the whole staff.
Evelina was very professional and very friendly. I really feel like she cared about what I was saying and took time to go through my x-rays and talk about her concerns. I was really dreading to go to the dentists since I haven't been in a while, but she really made me feel comfortable.
Everyone int he office was extremely kind and helpful. I was concerned that I might need a root canal and, before starting and drilling, they printed out a whole price break down and explained all my options to me in very kind and clear terms. I ended up only needing a filling and she did a beautiful job. She shaped the tooth perfectly; triple checking that it matched my bite. She was also very fast, but not at all hasty. I scheduled a cleaning for a couple weeks later.
Everyone at the office was very pleasant and helpful. When i left, my teeth were so much whiter and cleaner than when i went in. They also had some modern equipment that i hadnt' seen in any other doc office. I will definitely go back and recommend it to other people.
Very thorough, very competent, very kind.
Very happy with my first experience here, will be back every 6 months.
I already recommended a co worker…if your looking for a professional atmosphere along with professional care and communication, this is the dentist office for you.
Dr. Tolchinsky and her staff are great! Very welcoming and professional.
This was my first time at this office, I had a badly chipped tooth, but also needed some maintenance in other areas; Dr. Tolchinsky is not only an artist in repairing teeth; she's very thorough and offered an explanation and preventative maintenance to avoid similar problems in the future. She has a warm and comfortable demeanor. I am very pleased to be a patient here.
I booked my appointment online for an emergency consultation the next morning, very efficient online service. After a short wait, Dr. Tolchinsky explained thoroughly but simply the need for a root canal utilizing the xray of my tooth she had just taken to help illustrate the problem. I was informed of my ailment and convinced of the necessary treatment. The office was clean, light-filled, and the help in great form for a Monday morning!
She's very nice, her exam was good and I'm sure my teeth are completely healthy!
The office seems like it has top of the line technology, and the staff is very friendly and laid back.
Dr Evelina Tolchinsky was very thorough and helpful. She was extremely nice and informative. Her staff is very professional and friendly. I couldn't ask for a better place.
Visiting Signature Smile is like visiting family you don't see for a while. You're really nervous about getting there, but once you arrive you're glad you came. I used to have such a complex about going to the dentist, but with each visit over the last few years, they have put my fears to rest. From Dr. to assistant to secretary, there is no other Dental Office in existence that is quite like theirs.
The young lady who took my x-rays…excellent and professional. Dr. Evelina…very professional with exceptional discussion that served as a great assistant to making the best choice governing my next step for dental work that I will need.
The service was fine, but I won't be going back because of the plug-in air 'freshener' that was so overwhelming my eyes were watering and I could barely breathe. They kindly unplugged it, but I still left with a splitting headache and the chemical floral smell soaked into my clothing.
I've been seeing Dr. Tolchinsky for over a year now and plan on continuing. This is the first time I've had to wait more than 10 minutes to see the doctor (ended up waiting a little over half an hour), possibly because of a mixup as to why I was there.
She was great! Very personable and knowledgable. I felt comfortable and I was happy with my overall experience.
Despite waiting for over an hour to see Dr. Tolchinsky, today's visit went really well. Dr. Tolchinsky and her staff are very friendly and helpful and true professionals.
I would 100% recommend Dr. Evelina! While the wait time to see her was not idea, the facilities were fresh and clean, the staff was efficient and pleasant and Dr. Evelina was great! She took the time to ask me if anything was wrong and go through my x-rays with me, making sure to point anything she thought might be a problem. Not even a question, pick her as your dentist!
Excellent bedside manner, professional staff, very clean office, efficient processing. Would highly recommend.
always efficient and courteous
Excellent service. Everything was top notch.
The cost of the visit was more than fair. Dr. Evelina was very clear about what needed to be done, and more than willing to review my x-rays with me. The visit was brief and straight to the point.
this is a really nice office, which is surprising for someone who takes union members! they have massage chairs and play videos while you're getting your cleaning. the doctor is very attentive and takes the time to answer all your questions! excellent experience for a union dentist!!
I think this is a really great practice--everyone there is very nice, and I highly recommend it!
Dr. Evelina (she goes by her first name) was exceptional, as was her hygienist.
This was my first visit and it was actually a pleasant experience. I felt very comfortable throughout the whole thing.
Dr. Tolchinsky was amazing, I loved her. However, her staff was pretty gruff.
She's both friendly and patient!
I had a great first experience here! The office staff was super nice and helpful and the appearance of the office was well kept. Dr. Tolchinsky was thorough and knowledgeable. I need to get more work done but am actually looking forward to going back!
She saw my 3.5 year old daughter, and it was my daughter's first visit. Evelina connected with my daughter on her level and was very informative and open about what she would do next. When my daughter was afraid of Evelina's toothbrush, Evelina let my daughter play and feel it out on her hands until she was comfortable with it. For this first visit, Evelina counted and brushed her teeth while she was sitting in my lap in the dentist chair - a soft start to get her used to the dentist and ward off any fears. The flatscreen with movies does help too.
Evelina and her whole staff treat me like family...even though my visits are 6 months apart. :o) The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. They are very professional, yet warm and friendly.
I've been to numerous dentists over the years and have been very disappointed by each. Dr. Tolchinsky was exceptional. Very professional and thorough. Highly recommended.
Dr. Evelina was very pleasant; she was thorough on the examination, and seemed very knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and overall was very nice. Many thanks!
The dentist was very friendly, it was easy to connect with her. She was very professional yet still friendly. Aside from the location in an odd part of brooklyn, I think she is a wonderful dentist. She was also very patient and did more than my assigned appt.
It was great! Recommend highly.
Friendly, through and gentle on the hand.
Had a great first-time visit with Dr. Tolchinsky. Came in for a cleaning which turned out to be one of the most pain-free I've ever experienced. Then, she squeezed me in her full schedule to fill several cavities knowing I'll be away for the next year. I'll definitely be back and highly recommend her and the attentive staff at the office.
I only went in for a routine checkup and cleaning, which were excellent. Signature Smile has top-of-the-line equipment, friendly service and is very nicely kept. I can't give any office five stars without having tested its limits in a more serious situation, but let's hope I never have to do that at Dr. Tolchinsky's office :)
Excellent visit. I haven't been to the dentist in years and Dr. Evelina explained everything that she was doing and was extremely professional. We even discussed future work and how we planned to proceed. I would recommend to family/friends.
Visiting Dr. Tolchinsky for the first time was a great experience, and I will definitely go back to her. The office is conveniently located, and she was very personable, and did a thorough examination.
Dr Tolchinsky and her staff are very professional i love the office not your typical dentist office i would definitely be returning.
Very impressed with the hi-tech technology used at this office. Excellent bedside manner as well.
Warm and friendly staff. The dental services provided by Dr. Evelina Tolchinsky's office far surpasses my expectation. It's the cleanest dental facility I've ever been to.
The doctor was informative, friendly, & professional. The atmosphere was incredible...I was so relaxed and comfortable. Their decor made me feel as if I were waiting at home.
There are three main concerns about going to the dentist: 1) cleanliness, 2)pain, and 3)feeling uncomfortable. Here's how this office deals with these concerns: 1) It is sparkling clean. 2) They didn't put me in pain; they got rid of my pain. 3)The courteous staff, TV's, and massage chair really made me feel comfortable. As for the dental work --- excellent! If you're looking for a good dentist's office, you just found it!
I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was really friendly and all while watching TV on the flat screens in the office and getting a massage in the massage chairs! There was a tiny bit of a wait, but the Dental Assistant was very apologetic and more than made up for it.
she is a very nice dentist. there was no wait time.
I had a filling fall out and was able to make an appt for that afternoon. Dr. Tolchinsky was great, and very thorough. I had to wait for about another 20 min to have my teeth cleaned, but the dental assistant was amazing! It was the first time that I have not had pain during a teeth cleaning.
I was impressed by the professionalism of the staff and Dr. Tolchinsky. They were funny, helpful, and understanding! I am going back definitely.
This office is super nice -- massage chairs, flatscreen TVs everywhere, friendly staff. I even got to watch part of The Godfather while getting my teeth cleaned! They're very straightforward about the treatments they wish to give you and are 100% forthcoming about any insurance and copayment expectations!
She was very patient, informative and let me be a part of the decision process. Her staff is well mannered and efficient. I can't wait until my next appointment!
it was great!
Very friendly and professional. had a wonderful time there and got my teeth all cleaned ! :)
Dr. Evelina Tolchinsky was very patient, she took the time to go over my medical history with me for clarification. She then ask me if there were any major concerns that I had other then regular check up and cleaning. Over all I had a very positive and enjoyable experience with her and her staff who are very friendly.
