Dr. State is wonderful! It’s been a while since I’ve been to the dentist so I was nervous for my teethcleaning, but she reassured me throughout the process. She apologized for running a little late, but the wait wasn’t long at all. The nurse performed several routine x-rays and Dr. State went ahead with her analysis. She explained each step she performed clearly and addressed any questions I had. She handled my teeth with care and precision and I’m really happy with the results. She’s also really funny and kind. Her receptionist is also really nice and their office pug Axel is a sweetie. I would definitely continue to come here in the future!

The wait time was quick and brief, she was really nice and went above and beyond with the scheduling. She performeda root canal for my son and made sure it was perfect before sending us home. Definitely a good dentist!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. State and her staff. They were so welcoming and made me feel comfortable and at ease despite my being nervous and embarrassed about the condition of my teeth. Dr. State took her timewith me and was very gentle and made sure to periodically ask if I was feeling ok. The facility was very clean and up to date including the restroom which is so important to me. An added bonus is that Dr. State will have you laughing with her jokes.

Always a joy to come to this office! I have been seeing Dr. State for going on 4 years and will continue until I no longer live here— whenever that may be. Dr. State is committed to excellence and is alwaysdoing her best work every day. Wait times may be up to an hour, but I now plan accordingly and bring some video games to hold me over. The waiting room is small and I find that other patients will bring their entire family for a single person’s visit, which I will never understand, but the front desk is always managing appointments efficiently. Dr. State has attended to my husband as well and always does right by us. I’ve recommended her to many friends over the years.

My experience with Dr. Ligia State was wonderful. She explained how she wasn’t typically able to treat my problem but was still willing to check it out and listened to my situation. She determined she was willing to proceed with myextraction, offered me alternatives and made me feel very reassured. The process was very quick and went smoothly. She even took a look at the rest of my mouth and offered advice on another tooth. I left the office feeling super relieved and with my problem finally solved. I was given extra gauze and an after care sheet afterwards. She also has a super cute dog! I would definitely recommend her to others.

My crown fell off 3 times in a matter of 6 months because of a mistake my previous dentist made. I went to two other dentists but they didn't really help, i even got a new crown but it still felloff. Its been months since i visited Dr. Ligia and i have had no problems with my crown. She's very nice and she is the most skillful dentist i've had.

For my scheduled appointment, I was the one who was actually late an hour. I called ahead of time just in case. The second I walk in it was Dr. Ligia that greeted me. Before her I was traumatized by myprevious dentists. So she was extremely understanding and helped me feel comfortable. Definitely will go back again, she’s very kind and relatable.

She was very personable and down to earth. She gave me good advice and it seemed that she was more concerned with my health than about making money. She went a little hard with the dental cleaning, but she did numb my gums first and it was over very quickly!

I really enjoyed her!! She's a great dentist with a lot of training and experience. She's also really funny and kind, and her interactions with her staff are so loving and genuine. It felt like they were a family who lovedto joke around. Dr. State is so smart: she is fluent in English, Spanish, Romanian, and probably more! She was super efficient in cleaning my teeth. It was no-nonsense with her. I will definitely be going back.

My mom visited her a few months ago and she refused to go back. She is not gentle at all and mocked her when she said she was hurting her. She really needs to improve her bedside manners because people findit to be rude. I would not recommend her to anyone.

I've gone to many and personally know a lot about the healthcare system, and I have to say Dr. State is amazing. Not only is she a seasoned dentist, but her knowledge of health and as a doctor is outstanding. Ihighly recommend her, if it's your first time and you're looking for your own dentist on your own, you can trust her not only with your teeth but with your health. Thank you Dr. State, truly thank you.

She was so great and friendly! Very thorough and gentle cleaning (she made sure I was comfortable the whole time). I came in as an emergency and she explained everything I needed to do to fix my problem. I also hadgone to another dentist who said I needed a deep gum cleaning (scaling). Dr. State explained that I didn't need that and showed me my x-rays to prove it. She saved me a lot of money!

Believe me when I say Dr Ligia is the Robin Hood and Florence Nightingale of all dentists. I found her on Zocdoc after my previous dentist told me my insurance wouldn't cover my root canal which was a lie. Then Ifound Ligia who explained everything I needed to know and truly really put me at ease. She is as transparent (and honest!) a dentist as you can get and she is efficient and effective with the root canal work. For anyone looking for a great dentist - and one who has your best interests at heart - I cannot recommend Ligia enough. She is a gem!

Doctor Ligia State is a GREAT dentist. She cares a lot about your dental health. She is really smart and never did more than what had to be done in my mouth. I cannot expect more in a dentist than thesespecific points. Oh! I was also really scared at the beginning... But she put me at ease and she has this technic while doing the injection that won't hurt at all !! As of today, I'm not scared of going to the dentist anymore. Thank you doctor State, for everything. :) PS: I Highly Recommend Her !

My first meeting with Doctor Ligia State was very pleasant. I was having issues with my insurance and she did everything possible to see if I was qualified and covered. Unfortunately, my coverage had expired but Doctor Legia sat me downon her dental chair anyway and asked me what I was there for. After I explained my concerns she took my x-rays, trusting I would be back soon once I fixed my insurance. I am going for an implant tomorrow and I hope to give a positive update. Overall Doctor State is someone who takes the time out to educate her patients on oral care which is the greatest thing a Dentist can do. She's respectful, kind, and very personable. Would definitely recommend this awesome human!

It was an average experience, the assistant took too many x rays of my teeth. You could tell it was from lack of experience. You can hear everything the dentist says to her patients from the other room so it feels a bit unprofessional.

Dr. Ligia State is an excellent dentist. She is knowledgeable and highly competent. I went to see her as a new patient, after not having gone to a dentist for some time. It was easy to schedule an appointment with thedoctor on Zocdoc, and she say me quickly when I arrived for my appointment. After my x-rays she was able to asses the issues that I had with my teeth quickly, and then she explained how I could correct those problems and improve the health of my teeth. During my cleaning and some minor bonding, her manner was painless, attentive and caring. I am looking forward to my cleaning in the next six months, and using my smile in the meantime!
