Dr.Brett was great. He was focused yet pleasant at the same time. The ladies in the office are also a joy to deal with. I’d recommend this dental office to anyone looking for a professionalism and kindness.

Our appointment today was with Mary Telis. What a wonderful experience we had. My daughter needed teeth pulled for ortho treatment. All questions answered and the experience was less worrisome with the calm atmosphere . My daughter loves thefact the the assistant sang while she was having her surgery. She said if soothed her. Thank you so much for the great visit.

This was my first encounter with this dentist, and although he was fairly efficient and took care of my tooth, his bedside manner was lacking. He didn't even introduce himself. The only reason I even know his name is because theassistant referred to him as Dr. Brett. He made almost no small talk with me or his assistant and left very quickly when he was done. I was nervous about having the procedure, was it was not just a cleaning, and his brush off attitude did not help.

I left the my appointment feeling helpless. I wasn't treated because I took pain medicine shortly before I arrived, because I was in great pain. Dr Friedman help me understand that it was nothing he could do for me. The advicethat I was given was to wait another week because he only works on Thursdays. I asked the assistant is there someone else that could possibly do the operate at an earlier convince, I was told no and next time don't take the prescription. I then waited another 30 minutes for Dr.Friedman to come back into the work area after he disappeared without telling me why or just a simple notice. When he came back he asked did anything change. I told him that although I did take the medicine I can still feel the pain which he wasn't able to locate with his cold test. He left me once again with his two one of two was being trained, I had no issue with that the assistants answered all of the questions that I would have felt more comfortable asking him. I waited another 15-20 minutes to take X-rays which were not read to me. Honestly I don't even know what happened to the X-rays, not sure if he read them. He returned for a quick minute, when he returned into the room I asked him a question but when I turned around he was gone he walked out of the room without notice again. I wanted to asked him about my prescriptions. He didn't return after this exit. His assistant returned after I asked where did he go and she told me that nothing could be done. I believe this was told to her by him. I left the room and went to exit to schedule my next appointment and also get prescription forms. When I got to the forms I noticed that my prescription names where different from my last prescription. I asked why and the receptionist told me that they were the same just different names because one is generic, which I have no idea why! I asked why I couldn't have the same prescription as I did before, she insisted that it would work the same. In was in fear that the prescription wouldn't have any effect because of the intense pain that I have keeps me up at night. I literally get no sleep. She ran out of answers and went to get Dr.Friedman. He didn't come to answer my questions he gave her a card to give to me of a endodontic specialist who he "referred" I am a student. I had reschedule exams to get this appointment. I lost time and sleep that is very valuable to me right now especially when you can't go to sleep because of the tooth aches and pain and all of the prescriptions. I feel like I was being a nuisance to everyone in the office because of my will to get the operate done. Something about this visit doesn't sit right with me, I honestly don't even like writing reviews but when I got an email to do this. I stopped everything and couldn't stop writing. I hope no one is treated this way especially by a doctor.

Actually my visit was with Dr. Tells and she was SUPERB! (As was Shelby who took my x-rays!). I especially appreciated Dr. Telis's conervative approach to dentistry...she gave me a prescription for toothpaste (which I never had heard of andI am 67!!) to apply to two areas which looked like they might be heading to decay. I LOVE the fact that she didn't you immediately recommend fillings, etc.

I had a root canal for a very sore upper tooth. The worst part was the injection to numb the area, the other 2 injections were fine. I can now chew on that side again - thanks so much, Dr. Friedman, Kathy P.

Dr. Brett is not the friendliest or chattiest doctor which is what I love about him! I don't need to be best friends with my dentist. I just want to get in and out as fast as possible. He's great atjust getting the job done and not asking me a million questions while his fingers are in my mouth! The assistants are great at adding the personal and welcoming touch (remembering where you work, personal anecdotes, remembering kid's names,etc).

I have only been a patient at Union Dental for a short period of time now. In that time I have been treated with respect at each visit, the entire staff is friendly and easy to get along with. Dr. Friedmanwas able to get rid of my discomfort that I was feeling at the time and has come up with a comprehensive, long-term plan to address my dental needs. If any one were to ask me for a recommendation I wouldn't think twice, Union Dental and Dr. Friedman will be my only recommendation.

I have been seeing Dr. Friedman for years, He has a great way with his patients, his staff is nice and accommodating. No one likes going to the dentist, yet this dentist makes every visit as easy as possible. They havealways been fair with my billing , too. If I have to come back a few times for a recheck or adjustment, it has been at no cost to me.
