Dr. Mongelos was excellent. I walked him through my somewhat grim dental history and he didn't flinch. He talked me through everything he was going to do as he did it, walked me through my x-rays, and gave me some insight into my previous dental work and what to look out for in the future. Highly recommend! Will be going back there as long as I live here.

Dr. Mongelos, was an absolute gem. He took the time to talk with me so I could explain my dental history. Before he began the work he explained in full detail (including pictures) exactly what he was going to do. He made me feel relaxed and at ease. The professional demeanor showed by him and his staff was very refreshing. Thank you, Dr. Mongelos!

Took my three year old daughter to see him for a dental cleaning and he was great with her! He allowed her to help him during the process and explained everything he was doing in a kid friendly manner (he even made her laugh). His assistant was just as kind and inviting. We had no wait time when we arrived and we were in and out!

Dr. Mongelos was very friendly and professional. He did a deep and thorough cleaning on my teeth that I have never had done by any other dentist in years! He took his time and concentrated on cleaning each and every tooth from front to back, top to bottom, and in between...however, the process did not take long at all. He even gave me great advice due to me being 11 weeks pregnant! The office was very clean, kid friendly, his staff were all nice, and equipment was up to date. My teeth feel excellent and I can't wait to go back in six months! I've already scheduled my son to see Dr. Mongelos in one week!!

Loved the Dr, but was totally screwed over by the payment. They gave me false information and assured me that my appointment would be covered by my insurance provider (MetLife) and it was not. Received a hefty bill two months after my appointments. Maybe my fault for not checking with my insurance provider, but the Dr. was listed as covered on this site and they insisted in person, too. Pretty sure this has happened before, too, as the lady at the front desk remembered me months later, and had clearly had the same conversation many times before.

Dr. Mongelos was very attentive and thorough, and he explained everything he was doing with a great bedside manner. I appreciated the fact that he was both the dental hygienist and dentist, so he was able to provide a better diagnosis of the health of my teeth. Because I completed my paperwork online, there was no wait and I was able to see him right away.

Dr. Mongelos and his staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. I called a day or two before my appointment to make sure my insurance was good to go, and the receptionist dealt directly with my insurance company to double check. The appt itself went very smoothly -- Dr. Mongelos did the whole thing and gave me helpful information about things I can do to improve my dental health without being pushy. He was also very funny! I highly recommend.

I went to see Dr. Mongelos to get a second opinion on a possible dental procedure. Dr. Mongelos was very thorough in his exam, in asking me questions to learn the context of my issues, and in explaining the conclusions he came to. He was also very realistic in prescribing what I should do going forward. I will be back.

I had a dental emergency (broken tooth) so I decided to take a chance on him. My appointment was at 10 and I was seen at 10! First time that ever happened. I needed my tooth extracted and I knew that. I expected a consultation maybe a prescription and an appointment to get it pulled...nope he asked me what my schedule was and pulled the tooth out that same day! I have had problems with this tooth for years, not exaggerating, and made appointments to get it pulled only to have them cancelled. Dr. Mongelos pulled it out in an hour's time. He explained everything that was going to happen and made me feel extremely comfortable. His staff is excellent too! I think I found my new dentist!
