This was the absolute best dentist office experience I've ever had in my life. It's like visiting a day spa. I never thought I'd enjoy going to the dentist but it was such a wonderful and relaxing experience. Lauren, Jillian andDr. Dority were super friendly and knowledgeable. The service was great. You won't believe it but I'm excited about my next appointment. ??????

I have lived and worked in some of the top cities in the world and just recently moved to Boston. Dr. Dority is by far the most thorough, knowledgeable and congenial dentist I have met. Her assistants are amazingly professional andjoyful. Moreover the office itself is well appointed and a pleasure to visit. For the first time in my life I look forward to going to the dentist as often as needed!

They were helpful and welcoming. The appointment was pretty quick and didn't have to wait long. My only gripe was that the music was a bit too loud where it was hard to hear the dentists at times. Otherwise, I'd recommend.

I could not have been more pleased with my initial consultation with Dr. Dority and her team. They were very thorough in their examination of my current health, hygiene and lifestyle habits, and they took the time to explain my treatment plan and how it will benefit me moving forward.

Dr. Dority and her assistant were both very nice, and Dr. Dority was happy to sit with me and chat about treatment at length. Before and after telling me my teeth were great and I just need to floss a bitbetter, they were very aggressive in recommending antibiotic treatment for my routine cleaning. Dr. Dority seemed resistant to actually discussing the pros and cons of antibiotics, and kept repeating the same canned spiel. I felt extremely uncomfortable having to tell her multiple times that I wanted to do further research before agreeing to the antibiotics. She did not at any point suggest any resources or that I seek out a second opinion.
