I had a 2:30 appointment for fillings and sat in the waiting room for an hour before being brought into anexamination room and getting a shot of local anesthetic. I then sat in the dentist chest for another 45 minutes before finally being worked on. My appointment ended at 5pm!

A great experience! I had no wait, and the friendly assistant got me started. When the tiny dentist started work, sheexplained everything as she was doing it, which is important to me. She was also clear and honest about my alternatives for a course of treatment. Definitely recommended!

She's an OK dentist, but totally turned me off when she started talking about payment while I was still in the chair, mid-procedure.

Decent appointment, she was thorough and knowledgeable. But the receptionist was out, and there was a lot of issues processing my payment, health insurance, etc. Hoping that's just an aberration.

Dr. Lena is very knowledgable, and has a kind and warm personality. However her appointments are stacked so she does seem rushed and the wait time can be long, especially on the weekends.

Dr. Lena is great! She is really approachable and smart and her receptionist and assistant so friendly. I just wish my childhood dentist was that thorough and gentle. I would have been going to the dentist every six months as Iknow I have to. Dr.Lena took the time to explain everything she was doing and go over xrays and photos with me so I know what I need to have done which is A LOT. I'm so glad I found her!

She's so kind and gentle. I think I've found my new dentist. Her 20 percent discount for new patients also helps A LOT.

She was ok. The wait time was too long. I got there 10 minutes before my appt and was seen an hour after my scheduled time. For just a cleaning it was excessive. She's convenient so I'll go back but not until I have to.

Waited 40 minutes to be seen. For the follow-up, waited another 40 minutes only to have my appointment rescheduled. Then, it was rescheduled another time. No thanks.

Dr. Sapozhnikoff is very nice and professional, she took her time examining my teeth and answered all my questions. At the end they even gave me a bag with teeth care supplies which was a very nice gesture.

Very good dentist. Very thorough and very smart. Only thing is, you get there for a 9 AM appointment and you aren't seen till 9:45.

This is my second visit with Dr. Lena. I got a root canal done. Not my favorite thing to go through, but she gave me plenty of novocaine and talked me through the procedures, so I was really comfortable with whatwas going on. She even called at the end of the day to follow up and see how I was doing. I'm impressed with how attentive everyone was. Of note: go there on a weekday if you want to avoid a Saturday crowd and a long wait.

The place feels a little dingy and the assistant was awkward and didn't really explain what she was doing. But once talking about my dental needs to the Dr the service was satisfactory and very clear.

Lena is a great dentist. This wasn't my first visit to her, she actually told me about ZocDoc. She gave me some badly need work. Two crowns and a partial crown. It was easy. Which was a total surprise to me.I don't really do too well with dentists, so I think I will be sticking with this one for a while. Thanks Lena!

Overall experience was great!! Wait time was about 10/15 minutes before I was called in. Dr. Lena's assistant I would give 3 stars. She seemed to kind of just be going along with everything in a dull manner, took a bitlonger doing everything she had to then I personally thought she had, and didn't help to make me feel comfortable. But when Dr. Lena came in she was very comforting...asked a few different times during the cleaning if I was ok, and nothing hurt. Explained before hand that I might feel some sensation. I def plan on going back, and would recommend to others. Maybe the assistant was just having a bad day.
