Professional statement

“I was born in Russia, and at age 19 my family and I immigrated to the United States and settled in Silver Spring, Maryland. In 2002, I graduated from University of Maryland Dental School and moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There I was able to improve my clinical skills in all aspects of dentistry, including pediatrics and dental implant technology. Then, in 2007 I moved to Sarasota. “In practicing dentistry, I believe that patient education and disease prevention is the key to keeping smiles healthy and beautiful for life. I am committed to utilizing the most advanced technology for, both treatment and education of, my patients. I welcome you to my practice.” - Dr. Kira Gekht, DDS

I felt so comfortable with Dr K. Gekht. She explained everything that I need to have done very clearly. I am confident she will help me get my smile back. Phyllis was also excellent and very helpful as well as everybodyworking in the office. Haven't seen such nice employees in an office in a long time.

Everybody in the office is very friendly and the office is beautiful. Dr. Gekht is a top notch dentist and explains everything to you in advance. You hardly feel the anesthesia injection and even a tooth extraction was pain free. Ialmost couldn't believe all the great reviews here but now I understand.

I have found Dr Gekht to be a most caring and professional Doctor. There is no doubt that the client always comes first. Dr. G is a fine communicator and her work is some of the best in the area. Youwould have to look long and hard to find a better dentist. John W

Finding your dentist when you move from New Jersey to Florida is the challenge. My New Jersey dentist was a personal friend and I had been seeing him for 30 years. The only way I ever would've switched dentists wasto move away from New Jersey. I had tried another dentist here in Sarasota and hadn't been pleased. I did a little research with staff at my orthopedist' office and Kira was touted. I'm very pleased with my new dentist. I would recommend her highly. Nancy E.

She is the best! Dr.Gekht put in a new crown and I have never had a crown go in without adjustment. She has such a warm personality and makes you feel like you are her only patient. I am so fortunate to have found her.

I researched many Dentists information online and reviewed the reviews. I selected Dr. Gekht's office because of her background, and her office is a more personal office as opposed to a large house full of impersonal dentist cranking out patients..This was my first visit to Dr. Gekht's office...Very nice office environment...My wait was only about 5 minutes..First a Dental Assistant did Full Mouth X-Rays because my last Dentist office had never done a full mouth... Next the Dental Hygienist Phyllis performed my Quarterly Gum Maintenance followed by a cleaning..Phyllis is extremely friendly and will keep you laughing as she performs her magic. Then Doctor Gekht reviewed my X-Rays and inspected my mouth for cavities, chips, etc. and suggested ideas for improving my smile with a buildup of front teeth... As I stated this was my first visit and I had never met or been exposed to any of the employees or Dr. Gekht prior to this visit. Willis S.

I am very pleased with my first appountment. The staff is very friendly and professional. Dr Gekht was very easy to talk to. She not only repaired my chipped front tooth but reinforced both of my front teethe to prevent furtherdamage as they are thin, due to grinding and acid. She took a conservative approach, which was less costly. She is my new dentist now!
