The dentist and staff are great- my only complaint was the wait time. I didn’t get to see the dentist until 45 min after the appointment time. That said the procedure was very quick.

I am very disappointed. The dentist was fine, but else are very disappointing. When I made my decision to change to a new dentist and requested my X-ray to be shared by submitting a release consent form, they promised well inthe phone and email(I called twice and emailed 3 times telling them I need it and will be waiting online). But the I never received it in the following hours. It wasn’t until I canceled my on-going appointment and walked to their office again that they started to act. The front desk guy obviously was embarrassed and sent me the x-ray in 2 minutes - yes it could have been done within 2 minutes. I guess they intentionally gave me a hard time. And as they wished, I wasted my new appointment that day due to the delay.

I think she was great, very professional. She did an excellent cleaning for me. The only thing I did not like is the constant pushing to get filling. That is the only reason I would not go back.

Everyone at this office is extremely pleasant and helpful. I've been going to this dental office for 3+ years now, and they're always very nice. They also have available appointments after 5pm. It's hard to see the same dentist twice ina row, though. Even though everyone is great, every time I go there, I never know who's doing my check-up. If you care about seeing someone consistent, you may have to ask for that when making your appointment.

Super nice staff and doctor! Everyone was friendly, welcoming and made me feel very comfortable considering it was my first visit. The receptionist went out of his way to help me make some decisions that best fit my financial status sincemy insurance did not cover everything. Made me feel like they were real people instead of just out to make money. Definitely recommend!

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.

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 alreadydone, 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 should preface by saying the last time I saw Dr. Kang was probably late 2014/early 2015. I logged into ZocDoc today to make another appointment and realized I never left a review here. The first several times I saw Dr.Kang, all experiences were great. I decided to have my last two wisdom teeth removed per her recommendation. During the extraction, Dr. Kang had cracked part of my jaw and never told me about it. I had significant pain for days following and when I went back to find out what was wrong, she nonchalantly mentioned that the pain I was experiencing was due the crack in my jaw that occurred during extraction. No apology, no explanation. When I asked her what she can do to remedy it because I was in pain, she told me nothing and that it would heal on its own in several months. This was the last time I ever saw this dentist and ever will. She used excessive force to pull a tooth that probably should have been removed by an oral surgeon. I went later that day to my oral surgeon (who extracted my first two wisdom teeth) and he was able to shave down the boney fragment that was pushing into my gum causing pain. He also stitched my gum afterwards as he had to make an incision to access the bone. After that experience, I will never go back to see Dr. Kang.

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 inwith 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!

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! :)

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 applyto me), the doctor was friendly and efficient (plus, painless) and the office was immaculate. I definitely recommend.

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 Iever 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 stepsclearly 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 careabout 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 !

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 everythinglooks good, done! Efficient, in and out in 40 minutes. Friendly reception too.
