No string of superlatives can describe how fantastically fortunate I am to have Dr. Urkov and his right hand woman, Bonnie, as my dental caretakers!! It took me years to get up the courage to go see a dentist. Dr. Urkovunderstood from the get-go: his warmth, humor, and exceptional professionality have won me over--and now I actually look forward to my dental appointments!! Most highly recommended, especially for "dentist-phobics" (as once I was...:)

I would definitely recommend to others; and I will return. There was absolutely no wait time to see him from my appointment time. Additionally, his office isn't like other high volume dentist's office were you see the Dentist for maybe 5min. He takes care of you during the entire appointment. He is very personable and friendly. His office assistant is also amazing as well.

Dr. Urkov is the best dentist I have seen to date. I told him I had anxiety going to the dentist and he made me feel very comfortable by making sure to explain every procedure ahead of time and describing exactlywhat he was looking for. He even showed me my x-rays and pointed out any issues in detail and was very sensitive to whether or not I was in pain. I actually arrived half an hour early and he was able to see me almost right away. Can't beat the view of the lake either! I will definitely be back and recommend him to my friends.

Great dentist office. The office manager, Bonnie, is a great help dealing with the difficult insurance world. Dr. Urkov is patient, gives thorough explanations of what he's doing and what he recommends. He is always positive and encouragingbut gives specific helpful feedback. I have a small mouth and really don't like going to the dentist. Ok. who does? But Dr. Urkov really works hard to make it as painless and pleasant as possible while giving you the care you need. Oh, yes, and there's a killer view from the dentist's chair.
