Verified Patient Reviews
So normally I'm commenting on food, and restaraunts. Not often I comment on service providers. It's been almost two decades since I visited a dentist. I mean, I had a wisdom tooth removed, but that was it. There was something about drilling into my teeth that always made it uncomfortable. So why now? Well a filling came out and chipped my tooth. So I decided to pack on my brave face and suck it up. The dental hygienist I had, Jackie, was awesome. She was friendly, educated me on what she was doing, and did her absolute best to make me comfortable. Boy did she have her work cut out for her. The fact she got my teeth so clean, and with only a few squeamish moments, I was satisfied. Then Dr Gogate came in. He looked around and didn't share any new news with me. I mean, almost two decades, I know I was in it for the long haul lol. But what was more important was he walked me through step by step. He also educated me on why certain things need to be done and how we can accomplish healthy teeth. Highly suggest this place
Excellent Dental office, everyone there was truly fantastic and incredibly thorough.
I've been to 4 dentists in my life and Dr. Rishi was the absolute best! The hygienist (I wish I remembered her name) was thorough and very kind. Dr. Rishi explained stuff about my X-rays and teeth that I've never been told before, and I've already booked my 6 month appointment. I HIGHLY recommend this office!
Wonderful appointment with such a lovely group of people - see you all again soon!
Dr Gogate is professional, amiable, and explains things in a clear manner. Kathy, who was my hygienist, was also very courteous and knowledgeable and gentle. I would highly recommend this practice
I was very pleased with Dr. Gogate and his staff. Everyone was extremely nice. This was my first visit to Dearfield Family Dentistry office. The appointment was for cleaning and evaluation by Dr. Gogate. Dr. Gogate was very knowledgable, understanding and he has a good sense of humor! As much as I hate going to dentists he put a smile on my face during my visit. The fact that they accept my insurance is a huge plus. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gogate to my friends.
This office was great. I have anxiety about the going to the dentist, and I found the staff to be so welcoming and assuring. My hygienist was great. Dr. Gogate was amazing...made me feel very relaxed and explained everything to me. I'm very happy that I found this office.
My three sons went for their first check up with Dr. Gogate today, and had a great experience. The office is very nice and clean, staff wonderful, and Dr. Gogate was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Clean, professional, modern office. Friendly staff. Dr. Gogate took the time to explain issues, walked me through x-rays, suggested several treatments options, and helped me develop a longer-term plan. A very pleasant experience.
I enjoyed my visit as much as one can at the dentist. The only issue was a late hygienist, but that just meant that the dentist himself cleaned my teeth. That was a first in my nearly 50 years.
Very good liked the whole staff.
Dr Gogate was very welcoming, gentle and entertaining! They gave me an estimate of cost before any procedure and all the staff was really nice.
Excellent bedside manner. He went over the x-rays of my teeth with me, explained what he saw and why he wanted to use a specific line of treatment. The cleaning was also done in an excellent manner, was pretty comfortable and definitely better than my previous experiences. The staff is courteous and professional. Overall I recommend him as a dentist.
Rishi is great. This was my second visit to his office. His staff is very helpful, and makes sure you are comfortable. You have complete control of the dryer for your saliva so you never have excess water or paste. His office is very clean, and he uses the latest technology for cleanings. He has also always been true to my appointment times. Great experience and will definitely go here again.
Very friendly, will definitely be seeing him again
