Horrible!! Pulled my wisdom tooth and told me I would be fine without medication! I had to run back to the office in pain to get the doctor to give me a prescription for the pain but still refused to give me antibiotics! I'm now in bed running a fever and missing work!! Stay away from this place!!

The entire staff was very accommodating, James up front was very kind and friendly. Even the other dentists came by to greet and welcome me. Dr. Kang was very friendly and provided humor as well to keep my nervous feelings down. From placing an appointment to treatment was a breeze. I came during my lunch time and the whole appointment took only 40 minutes to complete. I went for a x ray and cleaning. Will recommend to friends and family as well as coworkers.

Hands down the best first appointment I've ever had, anywhere. I went in immediately after finishing paperwork and I never waited for anything. I was very impressed with the modern equipment and digital x-rays, and even more impressed with the incredibly friendly and professional staff. Highly recommended! :)

I typically hate the dentist, and this has so far been the best experience I've ever had. Dr. Kang is so wonderful, kind, and prompt. Her staff is wonderful, as well. The receptionist, Kevin, went above and beyond to check in with my insurance company and provide me with information and pricing. I had a major procedure done this week, and it was quick, painless, and overall, a great experience. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kang!

The best dentist experience I have ever had. The appointment started right on time, the office manager was extremely friendly and helpful (in explaining how my specific plan worked with deductibles, their bill rate and how that would apply to me), the doctor was friendly and efficient (plus, painless) and the office was immaculate. I definitely recommend.

This comment is about the clerk and not the dentist. Condescending, and misleading on prices of procedures. Desk clerk(Keven) said my insurance was approved, and then didn't disclose the cost/fee of a procedure until the procedure was already done, and won't negotiate a reasonable payment plan. If you can afford anything out-of-pocket right away, then this place is great, but if not, go to another dentist.

I've been coming here for years and there's a reason for that. The staff is so amazing, super welcoming when you come in and on their game with all of your appointments. I never have to wait long and if I ever have to reschedule, they're very accommodating. I recommend them to everyone I know and plan to continue coming back!

I get major anxiety over dental visits but after many years of avoiding it I decided I needed to take care of my teeth. The team at Ebenezer Dental was so kind and patient with me they explained all the steps clearly and were super gentle. They made some recommendations for the concerns I had and explained my insurance benefits to me as well. Big thanks to everyone who worked with me during my appointment! I recommend them highly.

The female dentist who did my cleaning was professional, friendly and informative. I've had many teeth cleaning & can tell if dentist is trying to scare me by upselling more dental work. She was on par with facts and genuinely care about my receding gum line. I was seen in minutes & entire staff was mindful of getting me taken care of right away so I can make my concert. Also very helpful with my insurance. I'd certainly would come back !

Excellent dentist, great bedside manner. dr kang knows her stuff. she very meticulous. her office is spotless. the office crew is helpful and polite. the only dentist I completely trust. l've been going to her for a couple of years now and I feel lucky to have found her. the only thing is that she now works only two or three times a week so I have to make sure I make my appointment when she is in office.

I go here for cleanings once every six months during my lunch break. Hygienists are friendly and thorough, and gave me recommendations to prevent tartar buildup. Dentist Karen comes in at the end for around 5 minutes, looks around, says everything looks good, done! Efficient, in and out in 40 minutes. Friendly reception too.

I didn't feel like she really cared about my dental health but rather getting me in and out relatively fast or making money on whatever procedure may need to be done. It was strange how she left the room and said I could talk to "management" about pricing then a guy came out which felt like bartering for dental services. One of my molar teeth in the back is missing so he was trying to really sell me on replacing it but was telling me the insurance would cover a certain amount but then told me it would be the same price even if I didn't have insurance. I asked him how detrimental to my dental health it would be if I just didn't get it replace which he couldn't really answer. I ended up getting a cavity filled and two slight chips on my front teeth fixed - I noticed one actually wasn't completely done so I need to go back. When I went to check out the guy who I guess is "management" just kept telling me how good of a deal I got with the discounts he gave me which is weird to hear from the dentist even if it's true. As I was paying the dentist walked past and uttered some word of frustration - not sure what it was directed at but either way I found it unprofessional.

The only downside to the office visit was the terrifying eyebrow waxing and threading graphics that plastered the entire front of her office building. I walked by the door several times convinced my dentist could not possibly be in such a disreputable building!

Was frustrated by not getting called to let me know dentist was running late. The review indicated significant need for interventions, which did not align with review by family dentist 3 months ago. Felt the treatment plan was overly aggressive, and didn't help me prioritize immediate vs medium term needs.

Agree with other reviews that I've read - nice/clean offices (four flights up), great hygienists (quick, gentle), x-rays (annoying but necessary if you haven't done them in a while). Dr. Kang introduced herself before she started her exam - nice! She explained (and showed me) each of the areas that she found issues - I admittedly have some so it was expected. I am actually looking forward to going back - how crazy is that??

Zoc Doc didnt sync up too well with their office. Waited to fill out paper work there. They called to confirm a couple times about the appointment. Easy to get to location. Cleaning went quick. Will be going back for future visits.

Aside from the building being a little sketchy and the elevator slow, the office is very clean. The receptionist is nice and the hygienist was very sweet and meticulous. Dr. Kang, who later looked at my teeth and x-rays after the hygienist cleaned my teeth, was very professional but seems just a bit rushed. She recommended a few procedures and after I asked a few questions, she said she would get the manager to explain the costs, at which point she was already walking out of the exam room. I had a few more questions I wanted to ask, but aside from that, I would recommend this place! The manager took his time to explain the costs of the procedures, and was really approachable. I'll be going back for a chipped-tooth filling in a few weeks.

I've been to this office for a total of 4 or 5 times. They're usually pretty fast, except for my first visit for which they took longer. Nice and easy to talk to. There's more than one doctor in this office- I was seen by 2 of them for different procedures. Overall good. Would recommend to anyone.

Great visit. From the front desk to Dr. Kang, the entire staff was professional and friendly. I'd recommend them to anyone. The only part I didn't enjoy was that I filled out all my ZocDoc materials online and then they had me refill them out at the office. I didn't want to be rude so I just did (it was my first visit). Great team. 10/10
