Verified Patient Reviews
He always listens to my concerns and addresses my issues. He is sympathetic to my fear of the dentist and he does everything he can to make me comfortable. The staff is always helpful and pleasant as well.
Dr. Stevens was extremely knowledgable and it was very helpful that he had before and after pictures for a cosmetic procedure!
I have an ongoing issue for which I've seen Dr. Stevens multiple times. On the plus side are his knowledge and skill. He really seems to know what he's doing, and he is very steady with his hands. On the negative side is the customer service angle. In my experience, he pretty much always runs behind, and no one ever apologizes for my time spent waiting. Today was about 20-25 minutes late, in the morning. Not outlandish but a simple communication or apology would go a long way. Without that, I started off in a bad mood. Then there is pain/trauma involved for me, which I don't think he fully appreciates. Today, he seemed to view the blood in my mouth merely as an inconvenience for completing his work rather than a sign I was hurting. Overall, a mixed opinion.
He seems like he was a good doctor, but I was the last appointment of the day and everyone was clearly rushing to get out. I originally made an appointment for 5, was called and asked to come in early. I agreed to try to be there by 4:45, which apparently meant they switched my appointment to 4:30. Then the day of the appointment they called again and asked me if I could come in at 4, which I was unable to do. I knew coming into the appointment that I was probably going to need my wisdom teeth removed and he told me that was the case, but I was not thrilled with the manner in which he told me. That being said, he was thorough and efficient with the exam, he just rushed through the part where he told me the results. The dental hygienist who I worked with was fantastic. She was friendly, thorough and great at explaining things. She was really a pleasure to work with.
Efficient and professional
Its always a very pleasant experience being with Dr. Stevens, Dr Smith, Ellen and Michelle
Dr. Stevens was kind and expedient. He truly helped me out and made sure that his work was perfect!
I was seen a few minutes before my appointment (unheard of!) I went on my hour lucnh break and the whole process was extremely efficient by nature. The hygenist spoke to me as a peer and shared the pros and cons wih me a.k.a. didn;t try to sell me anything. Also, its nice not being scolded for having a less than perfect flossing routine.
Awesome! First time visit, got a ton of easy to understand information. Great service, answered all my questions. Thanks!
Dr Stevens is such an excellent and capable dentist! He fixed and filled my tooth so skillfully and my tooth is in perfect shape now - he always gets the tooth that has been filled to feel comfortable, and like nothing was ever wrong with it - I highly recommend Dr Stevens !! I'm glad to have found his practice!!
I went for a free consultation for cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Stevens answered all my questions, gave me a range of options, and didn't attempt to pressure me into the costliest procedures. That truly gained my confidence and respect. I look forward to working with him to enhance my smile.
Best dentist experience I had ever.
What an excellent dentist! He is patient and peaceful, which makes a big difference in one's visit ... his assistant Michelle is great, too - and they make a great team. They do what has to be done very well - and they make "dreaded" appointments not so bad. I highly recommend Dr. Stevens to everyone. He has years of experience with all sorts of situations, so he really knows what he's doing and does it well. He and Michelle are just the best dental team you can find.
As always Dr. Stevens is very warm and compassionate. He makes the shock of coming and listening to the news of what you need done, softer, not so scary.
I enjoyed my first consultation and I'll be coming back.
Great doctor. Knows what he is doing.
He was very reassuring an comforting. He gave me visual aids to show me what he was about to do. Not at all like the "Drive-thru Dentist", I had seen prior. He made me believe that he cared. I am extremely grateful for having been referred to Dr. Stevens. ps and the Technician was very nice and comforting as well.
Went in for a toothache (wisdom tooth) and was my first dentist visit in years. He was great, wrote me a scrip and saw me on the house, then got me scheduled to do a full check-up and clean-up. Wait times could be a little better, but the visits always go great!
Nice guy and very professional, yet laid-back. Only issue is that the office is kind of small, but you can't do much better in Boston!
