I've been going to Dr Appolon for more then 5 years. The time you come in for your appointment is the time you get seen. She's straight forward, no nonsense person who tells you what you really need to do tokeep your teeth in good working order. PS: I've had less issues in the last 5-6 years then in the whole 20+ years I've seen any other doctor.

This was such a positive visit. Every person in Dr Appolon's office was fantastic. A special note to Olesya who was at the front desk. She was incredibly helpful and caring as I was having insurance issues to deal with. Lovelypeople. Everyone was smiling so I assume it is a happy office.

Booked a cleaning here for convenience as the proximity to my office was very close. The wait was extremely long. When cleaning my teeth the Dr. was using dental terminology I didn't understand and telling the hygienist to take notes- whenI asked what she was saying she told me " she would discuss with me later". I thought it was very odd and uncomfortable. Although my teeth looked gorgeous post cleaning I would not recommend coming here and I would not come back here for a routine cleaning. I think she is probably very good/thorough at doing a cosmetic dentistry job. They need more front desk help though.

Each appointment takes longer than expected. A simple cleaning is 1.5 hours and any work you have done such as a cavity or crown is at least 2 hours.

The office was a bit behind schedule, but the receptionist was very compassionate about that. As a new patient, I had to get about 15 x-rays, which I was due for anyway. Dr. Appolon came in and cleaned my teeth witha very rough rapidly spinning dremmel, it looked exactly like the one my past dentist used to carve into a cavity. I was very nervous about this and it did hurt a lot more than the manual hand tools that most dental hygienists and Dentists use. I did not like this. She poked my teeth and I denied any pain or tooth sensitivities to temperature or chewing. Then she told me I had two new cavities. Now, I've only had two other cavities in my life, as a teenager, and I knew I ha them because those cavities hurt to some degree. I was very skeptical because I took great care of my teeth, brush, floss, and I had no pain in years. Instead of just giving me an estimate on my two new "cavities" right there while looking at my mouth, Dr. Appolon insisted that I make another appointment, charge another co-pay, take another day off work, and waste another afternoon just for a consultation/estimate. Then again for the filling! No thanks!

By the time I got in the chair, there was no time to fill the cavities I came in to fill, so having to go back for a third appointment. Word to the wise, call before you head there to confirm theyre running on schedule.

Decent visit, good manners. I was not a fan of the constant X-rays (no need to get x-rays every time you visit) or the incessant calling to schedule a dental cleaning several months later.

I've been seeing Dr. Appolon for a long time. Her bedside manner is wonderful. I really like that Dr. Appolon does my cleanings herself, not a dental hygienist. This way I have an opportunity to discuss any issues I'm having duringmy appointment vs having to remember everything for the end of the cleaning. It is very easy to get appointments and the staff is very friendly.

We had agreed upon what procedures were to be done which was printed out for me and signed and dated but each time I went back the procedures ended up being more expensive and there was more work added each time.So I ended up paying double of what I was told up front. Not very transparent and seemed like miscommunication between dentist and staff which ended up costing me more money than planned.

In search of a new dental provider, I booked a dental cleaning with Dr. Appolon after reading her glowing ZocDoc reviews. My appointment, however, did not go as planned: - It started 40 minutes late - Dr. Appolon's colleague performed thedental cleaning - Dr. Appolon insisted that I have a full mouth x-ray as this was her policy for new patients Had I known that Dr. Appolon would not perform the dental cleaning and would also subject me to procedures beyond simply cleaning my teeth, I would not have scheduled the appointment. I will not be going back to Dr. Appolon.

I had a few cavities so Dr. Appolon suggested I make a 90 min appointment to make sure we got everything filled. I made an appointment before I left and when I came back about a week later she told meshe probably wouldn't have time to do all the fillings because my appointment wasn't long enough (even though I told her receptionist to schedule me in for the time Dr. A suggested). I said ok and made another appointment for about a week later. When I went in the second time she said she wouldn't have time to finish yet again and suggested I make a THIRD appointment. Insane, does she think I have nothing better to do? Absolutely ridiculous in my opinion.

She is s ogreat. Glad I stuck with her. Embarrassingly enough it's been two years since I last saw Dr. Appolon (for the FIRST time) & she still remembered me which meant a great deal. Also wanted to note that Igrabbed a magazine expecting to wait a few minutes but when I went to open it, I was called in!

Dr Appolon always spends extra time with me to explain procedures, insurance, and answer any of my crazy dental questions. She is patient and a good listener, keeping things simple and giving advice along the way. Her cleanings are thorough,and she has a fancy new camera that she used to show me a newly formed cavity on a molar. She's also very flexible on appointment times and having Saturday options has been great!
