I went to Dr. Kandov for an emergency toothache that was bothering me for weeks when my current dentist couldn’t helpme. Dr. Kandov did not have a history on me since I was a new patient. I had pain in an area where it was difficult to tell which tooth had the problem. Dr. Kandov did multiple tests to figure out which tooth it was to make sure the procedure was safe and a success. Dr. Kandov and his is staff is efficient and professional from appointment scheduling, the root canal procedure that was done to the dental insurance process. The root canal and crown procedures were painless and completed very well. They are always available no matter how busy it is. They take the time to provide explanations and answer any questions you have.

Dr. Lev runs his office efficiently (rarely do I have to wait), has great bedside manner, and does excellent dental work. He performs cleanings himself. My family has been going to Dr. Lev for several years and will continue to do so.

Losing my dentist 3 years ago, I was concerned about finding another dentist who is not just as competent but as trustworthy and caring as my previous one. My search has ended! I appreciate deeply the wholly pleasant and satisfactory experience I had - from the first sunshiny "Hello" of Margret on the phone who informed me of an earlier appointment day than the earliest I could get online (I had a concerning issue and will be going away for 2 months) to the big warm welcome smiles and cheerfulness of the staff, Margret, Marie, Parvin and Dr. Lev himself, to his actual thorough, gentle, and painless initial cleaning of my teeth.He listened patiently to what I had to say and did not make me feel rushed. He showed on a big screen how my teeth look like and explained clearly what may be done as he continues to care for my teeth which was affected badly by my lack of dental prophylaxis for 3 years. I look forward to a satisfactory longtime dental-patient relationship with Dr. Lev. Kandov. Thank you very much, Dr. Lev Kandov, Margret, Marie, and Parvin. The "send-off" gift of a toothbush and toothpaste was a gracious additional touch.

I had Zoom! whitening done at Dr. Kandov’s office. As always he and his staff are nothing short of wonderful! So attentive and always put their patients first. Really pleased with my whitening results! And would highly recommend Dr. Kandov for all your dental needs. He even personally called me that evening after my whitening to make sure I was ok. He knows I’m an anxious patient and goes above and beyond to reassure me.

First appointment: Xrays taken. They submitted a claim to my insurance about getting preapproved for the treatment. My insurance company came back and gave a quote for me. 2nd Appointment: Deep Cleaning was completed. Charged a copay, without any knowledge of copay. Other dentist I have been to never charged a co-pay. I was also informed the tooth that was pulled in August that my other teeth are shifting. Which is odd because its only been a few month. The other work, I understand the amounts. I was still hesitant in agreeing to do the work. I was late for this appointment, they made adjustments for me. I was late because the doctor previous to my dentist appointment had to do a through check of issue concerning my breast mass. 3rd Appointment: Once again I was late, the office called me and I told them I will be there within 5 mins. 3 mins later the office was calling again. I did not answer. I paid for the meter, I walked up to the office. I was informed that the appointment was canceled. Two assistants laughing, and dentist hid inside a room while I am being told the appointment was cancelled. Fair enough. Then they called me to book appointment. Leave me alone! Granted I was late because my child was battling 103 fever and I waiting for my husband to come home to take over but he hit traffic. REMEMBER ALWAYS BE ON TIME.

I can assure anyone who makes an appointment with Dr Kandov will feel exactly the same!

Every step of my exam was explained to me, and I felt very comfortable. I met Dr. Kandov, and he explained the detailed pictures of my teeth, what my treatment plan would be, and his recommendations. I even had a cleaning that was fast and pain free! I was extremely happy with my first visit, and highly recommend Dr. Kandov.

Dr Kandov is the absolute BEST dentist one could have the benefit of calling “my dentist”. He’s so good that I’m willing to share his professional talent and skills with my friends and clients knowing I would be doing the right thing for them. He knows multiple aspects of dentistry and uses the latest techniques and technology. His office is “smart-ready” for one to enjoy music, tv, or just quietness, while in the dental chair. He is meticulous in his approach and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I never had any pain or discomfort while under his care. He has mastered the art of injections to the point of amazement. You can’t believe that he already completed your injection. The rest of the designated procedure is just as painless, with Dr Kandov and his diligent dental assistant always checking in to monitor your comfort feedback. He is a Master dentist. He is understanding and emphatic. These very same traits filters through to his master staff, also doing the BEST for the patient. Well this might sound outrageous but....for the first time in my life I could say, “I look forward to going to the dentist”. YES, I do, knowing his value as a dentist, and as a person, which is complimented by his compassionate and very capable office Staff,. The bottom line that I know so well that my teeth are being taken care of, and I will have them healthy and for a long time at their optimum functioning because of Dr Kandov! Again he’s the BEST!
