Very friendly people, professional service
Professional, courteous staff. I was well informed of everything that was going on. Very clean office. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.
Fantastic and painless!
I have never been disappointed in my appointments with Dr. Mendez. She and her team are consistently outstanding. I particularly like her willingness to fully describe dental procedures, and she's very good at preventive dentistry to avoid future problems.
She understood my concerns and came up with a plan for optimal necessary treatment minimizing my insurance co-payments. Her staff and office ambiance are very pleasant. She began skillful treatment right away. If you have to see a dentist you couldn't find a nicer more competent one than Dr. Jocelyn Mendez.
Professional, personable... excellent doctor :)
all problems fixed and corrected as needed
My son and I have been getting our dental care here for the past couple of years and we couldn't be more pleased. Fillings, capping, extractions all went very smoothly. The dentists are very warm and caring. One time, during a procedure that made me particularly nervous, one of the dentists sat with me to distract me, even holding my hands, while the other dentist did the procedure. I still smile when I remember that experience. Friendly staff awesome dentists.
I saw Dr Molinari and as usual she was delightful thoughtful and engaged in my treatment. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very happy with my visit.

The staff and Dr. are amazing! It is a rare thing to find such a wonderful professional environment in Miami sometimes... I'm glad I found them.
Dr. Jocelyn Mendez, her assistants and staff were excellent as always. I've always had a great experience at her dental office. I've always had fear of the dentist. But Jocelyn and her staff always help me to feel relaxed, comfortable, calm. She's the BEST dentist I've EVER had!
Excellent and professional as always.
My dentist is Dr Luciana Molinari who works at Dr Mendez's office. Dr Molinari was spectacular. Great bedside manners, highly professional and excellent dentist. Knowledgeable and approachable. She always listens to your concerns and makes sure you are 100% satisfied. She is the kind of dentist who loves what she does and it shows. Her work is flawless. I am very grateful to have her as my dentist.
The office is very nice and everyone had a smile for me. Dr. Molinari is very careful and professional. I'm pleased with today's visit and my new dentist
I've been seeing her for years and all the staff there are like family now. They are amazing.
I LOVE DR. JOCY and STAFF ;) The best Dentist in South Florida!!!
Great staff that made me feel comfortable and enjoy going to the dentist!
Great visit got some pretty bad news but nothing a little treatment cant fix. Scheduled another appointment with her to take care of those issues. Great facility friendly staff super clean and professional
It's always a pleasant experience at their office! Even if it's for a root canal! ??
Dr. Mendez has always been caring and efficient. She and her staff are are among the best medical professionals I have entrusted with my health.
Dr Mendez and her entire staff were great.
Very professional and friendly. They did every possible thing in their hands in order for me to feel comfortable.
I do my treatment with Dr Jocelyn Mendez and her team for years and I never had any problems with both routine cleaning or special treatments like crown. The waiting time is always very short and the staff is great.
I love my dentist!! Jocelyn Mendez is the best! I hate going to the dentist but after seeing her I don't feel that way. Her staffs are really nice and down to earth.
Dr. Mendez is very professional/knowledgable and I always have a great experience with her as a patient. I would recommend her to all my friends and family. Her staff is excellent and the male dental hygienists whose name I cannot remember gave me one of the best and thorough cleanings I've ever had. Dr. Mendez changed out one my fillings due to micro-fractures and it was done quick and painless. She has been very helpful in answering all my questions in regards to my dental issues and even showed me videos to better understand. Thank you Dr. Mendez!
Everything was explained down to the smallest detail. The care was great! It renew my trust in dentistry.
The atmosphere in the waiting room was very nice, comfortable and the wait time was minimal. Dr. explained to me what need to be done and also made me aware of what needed to do to have a health smile. Dr.Mendez and both of her assistance were very nice and made me very relaxed and comfortable. during my procedure Dr. Mendez and her assistant made sure that i was comfortable and felt no pain at all during the procedure.
Dr. Mendez and her office staff make visiting the dentist as good as visiting the dentist can be. You don't wait around, they see you at your appointed time. They book your next appointment. They walk you through your procedures. It's a great service.
An absolute amazing experience and very knowledgeable!
This dentist is extremely gentle and understanding of my "fear" of the dentist. The entire staff is excellent.
Let me start this by saying "I NEED NOVACAIN JUST TO MAKE MY APPOINTMENTS". However my experience with Dr. Mendez has been extraordinary. I find I am relaxed during visits and willing to go thru some procedures without anything to mask the pain, because it's nonexistent or minimal.
Terrific office and lovely doctor and staff. Great job.
I visit Jocelyn Mendez for years and I am always happy with her services. The waiting time is always very small and the professionalism is on top. She and her staff explain every step service that is needed and every step is explained too.
Fast, efficient and painless. In 18 months the ladies in this office have converted me from having dentist phobia to looking forward to my visits there!!
I didn't see dr Mendez. I thought I was going to see dr Mendez but it turned out I saw someone else. Since I didn't know dr Mendez I guess it made little difference which doctor I saw. They were really friendly, competent, professional, all that stuff....great! The office was clean, new, modern, well lit, nice. Front desk staff very on the ball, friendly, clean cut, professional. The doctor seemed to know what she was talking about and was quite good at explaining the situation. Professional bedside manner. And she had absolutely beautiful teeth.......that's important because who wants a dentist with bad looking teeth?
Everyone hates to go to the dentist right? Not when you go to Dr. Mendez. The doctor and her staff make you very comfortable always!
I had a really great experience here. Was seen right at my appointment time. They were very thorough. Had to have a filling fixed and it was done immediately. Also, they checked with my insurance while I was waiting to give me an estimate for how much the procedures would cost, which I really appreciated. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent experience and staff. Modern and professional.
I like Doctor Mendez a lot. I just wish I didn't see her to pay a ton of money to get my teeth drilled.
As always, Dr. Mendez and her staff are excellent! They are professional, courteous, friendly, and always concerned for the comfort of their patient.
Very professional and smart. Took time to answer my questions and was very thorough. Her hygienist was also very good but I forget her name.
I loved it! Very clean, professional, and courteous.
Best dentist and best team ever! Saw me today as an emergency and she could not have been nicer about it. No pain, spotless office, excellent Dentist! Recommend highly without reservation. Make your apt today!
Staff friendly and professional. They were very attentive and address my concerns with honesty and professionalism. Highly rrcommend their practice.
I thought my first visit was excellent. Very professional.
She is competent, concerned and caring.
Let me begin by saying I hate dentists and hate the pain associated with dental work! Friends tease me that I'd prefer to be put under for x-rays - that's how bad I am. However, Dr. Mendez is the exception. I'm having a tooth implant. A couple of days ago there was a 2 hour procedure for the first step. On a pain level from 1-10, where 1 is shoot me now and 10 is no pain at all, this was a 10. I couldn't believe it. If you are adverse to pain, and want a good dentist, I can highly recommend Dr. Mendez and her staff. All are professional, caring and concerned about me as a patient.
I think Dr. Mendez and all the employees working for her are very professional and helpful. Great dentist. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Mendez was very professional and attentive to my needs for the visit. Her staff was efficient and all smiles. Facility was state of the art and clean. I would recommend her practice to anyone living in the Coconut Grove/Coral Gables area.
Dr. Mendez and the entire dental staff are great. They do everything possible to make you comfortable and do a great job with cleaning your teeth. Always leave with a smile.
Yes I'm a wuss. I am fearful of dentists. I joke around saying I need gas just to brush my teeth at home. Today was a big day, I needed to have 2 crowns removed, a temporary bridge put in place and 2 fillings replaced. I was quite nervous. Well, 2.5 hrs later I walked out of there slightly numb on my lower lip. However; on a scale of 1-10 (10 being no pain what so ever) my experience was a 9.5. I couldn't recommend Dr. Mendez more highly to anyone who needs routine cleanings to extensive rework.
Excellent, professional service and office environment. Today I only had a cleaning but it was first rate as always -- pain-free, gentle but totally thorough. 5 stars for sure.
The whole staff was very nice and friendly. I'm personally not fond of going to see the Dentist, but this office has excellent service.
I think Dr. Mendez is very thorough and knowledgeable. I had a slight problem because I have read that it is difficult for anyone to concentrate on a task while they are talking and she and her assistant talked quite a bit while working on me. I think the work she did was fine so maybe I am anxious about something that doesn't apply to her. This was my third or fourth visit and I am sure she'll remain my dentist for as long as I live in Miami.
It was very good and the staff is very pleasant too.
great dentist super pro very niche people
Someone once told me if you get a tooth extracted and your face does not swell up then your dentist is very good! no swelling and no pain so my dentist is very good!
Dr. Mendez and her dental assistant are great. Not only is Dr. Mendez a skilled practitioner, she is an excellent dental counselor, providing options & priorities for procedures.
We will not hesitate to recommend this gem of a Dentist. We found the entire process from our initial telephone call through to completion of work extremely professional. We are delighted with the results.
What a wonderful place to overcome a fear of dentists! Staff were friendly and patient, immediately relaxed me. Every step of proposed treatment was thoroughly explained, including what was and was not covered by insurance. I am thrilled to have found such a nice office!!!
Very friendly and easy to talk to. Gave me great advice and full understanding of services. I had two small cavities and she was incredibly gentle, I barely felt a thing--I was amazed! I would definitely recommend her. I had one scheduling issue in which I booked an appointment online but the office was temporarily closed that day and I had not received any warning.
Great and professional, friendly staff! ;-)
The visit was faster than most offices. The office emailed the new patient forms and they were ready for me as soon as I walked in. My appointment took no more than 40 minutes and they were extremely nice.
overall, good experience. I liked the zocdoc appt setup as well.
I made the appointment for an issue i have with a specific tooth i did not go for a cosmetic consultation i had poor information about the affected tooth, when i need a cosmetic work i will make an appointment for that thanks anyways for the info about the cosmetic work that i need.
