I didn't really enjoy my visit at all. I went in for a full mouth x-ray and check up regarding an old filling but Dr. Kessler seemed very sale-sy and tried to talk me into invisalign and other teeth straightening optionsthat she's recently brought on. Even if I do need this (which no other dentist has ever recommended or brought up ever) there's a way to go about things. Additionally, my actual concerns were not much of a focus. The WORST however was the assistant that tried to take my x-rays. She had no idea how to work the machine and kept hitting my teeth and it took over 45 mins mind you. She didn't seem new or in training but regardless there was no one to supervise her and it was such an ordeal. I would not recommend her practicr as a regular dentist. Maybe if you do need veneers or something of that sort she could be a good fit.

I went to her a few times and liked her until my last visit. She replaced a metal cavity with enamel on the bottom right side and ended up cutting up my face. It has been 4 weeks since the appointmentand I still have a scab by my lip. She was unapologetic and at the time it happen just told me to put vaseline on it. She was rude and I felt rushed.

My appointment was scheduled for 11:45 and I wasn't seen until 12:50. The receptionist was very nice and explained the delay (they were having technical issues), however waiting at the dentist for more than one hour is obviously not fun. Theactual cleaning by the hygienist was insanely painful, and Dr. Kessler seemed very rushed.

It was a good first consultation. Dr. Kessler was firm but not pushy about her recommendations. I will have more feedback to offer after my cleaning on May 1.

Dentist and assistant were friendly and courteous and efficient. They worked together on my cleaning very well. Felt like there were four people working in my mouth at some point! Ha! They worked together like a well-oiled machine to get myapointment done quickly and send me on my way with great looking teeth and as little pain as possible. And she consulted with me on how best to approach replacing my older fillings.
