I have severe anxiety about going to the dentist -- Dr. Kurman's kindness and compassion wiped my worries away. The appointmentwas efficient too -- no wait time and comprehensive exam, including x-rays and cleaning, took less than an hour. One of the best dental experiences I've had.

Dr. Kurman was very professional and a real pleasure to be with, along with her excellent staff. The office had scentedcandles and nice music, which was great because I get stupid nervous going to the dentist. Dr. Kurman explained everything she was doing to my teeth as she went through, and also made me feel like less of a baby when my gums were bleeding even though we both knew I was being a baby. I never felt rushed. Over all, one of the better dentist experiences I've ever had, and I look forward (!) to returning to the office for follow-ups.

I had my first appointment today with Dr. Joanna Kurman, and she and the rest of the staff were wonderful. I was seen right on time, am very happy with the cleaning she provided, and everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Dr. Kurman took extra care to avoid causing me any pain or discomfort, and provided an excellent consultation for some additional dental work I'm considering. I made this appointment because of a friend's recommendation, and would absolutely recommend Dr. Kurman myself.
