I hadn’t been to the dentist in 6+ years. Dr Starik and her staff were excellent and prompt with my exam,as well as the accommodation for a quick filling. I liked that she explained what she was doing before she did it - this type of bedside manner greatly helps put a patient at ease and instills confidence in her hands. I highly recommend her practice.

Dr. Starik and her staff were very welcoming and I was seen right away but that's probably because my appointment wasat 5:30 pm. I would recommend her for yearly dental visits but if you have a dental emergency I would not. I have a really bad toothache and she couldn't help me and the doctors she recommended couldn't either. Now I have to wait almost two weeks for a root canal.

Great Dr. fixed my tooth issue when I wasn’t sure what it was and already went back for a cleaning (which was a little painful) but got the job done.

Dr. Starik is highly skilled and patient. I am sensitive to the pain during dentist treatments due to some traumas during my childhood. Dr. Starik did an extraordinary job managing my pain and mental states during my visits. Also she solvedsome long going dental problems that my previous dentists couldn't.

Dr. Starik and her staff were fantastic! I would recommend her practice for even those like myself who avoid the dentist. The hygenist cleaned my teeth without any pain. They explained everything to me and addressed my concerns about insurance costs. It was a great visit!

I had my appointment at 10 AM. I got to the office way earlier, but I thought I just sit down and wait for my appointment there. To my surprise, they were able to start my treatments right away, so Ididn't even have to wait for my appointment! They did thorough exams before they started the treatment. I am very satisfied, highly recommended.

Dr. Starik herself is a decent dentist but I can't say much about her staff. One thing to charge for a missed appointment another not to waive it to keep the patient coming back. Sad but most of these dentists donot know customer service as they need to look at Amazon for clues. Even Zocdoc can't save this old fashioned behavior.

The visit was great but I never received a follow up call from the office about scheduling my actual invisalign appointment after speaking with them twice about insurance authorization. I thought this was a little crazy considering how much I was going to be paying for the service.

Visit was pleasant. However, both times I've visited with this dentist she has recommended additional treatment that no other dentist has never mentioned and my insurance conveniently doesn't cover. I get the feeling that she is just tryingto sell me additional services that I don't truly need, and most likely will not be returning.

I had an amazing visit at Irina Starik's office. Even as a new patient, I had virtually no wait time. She and her hygienist were incredibly kind and helpful, taking the time to walk me through each step of the cleaningprocess. Without a doubt, I will be returning to this office for all of my future dental appointments.

Had more time with the hygienist, but both were professional and were nice to me even though it was a painful cleaning! The music and calming youtube video is a nice touch to keep patients calm.

Got 3 more fillins, not sure about how well they were done, because I developed pain biting for one of the fillins. They maxed out my insurance too, I noticed.

I went to Dr. Starik for a cleaning. She was kind, straight forward, and efficient. I felt comfortable with her and the other office staff, which is important for people who may have some anxiety about going to a dentist. Shealso noticed that my TMJ (problem with my jaw joint), which I have had for many years, was becoming more severe and recommended I see a specialist. She provided me with a name and discussed what would happen during that appointment. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Starik.
