The staff was great. And our x-rays, cleanings and exams were well done and professional. However, my husband and I had back to back appointments at 11 and 11:30 and when we arrived at 10:45, there were 8 people in the waiting room at least 2 of them said aloud that they also had 11 am appointments. We didn't get called until 11:40 for our 11 am appointment and then I was called at 12 for my 11:30. The front desk person apologized several times for the delay, explaining that the first few patients of the day had been late, slowing down the entire day. (The office is only open from 9-2 on Saturdays.) While I completely understand that this happens, it was a bit frustrating and not the very best first impression of the office! On top of this, we were asked to complete the paperwork I had submitted in advance via the doczoc website while booking my appointment online. I explained this and was told that their computer system was down. I reminded them that I had completed the paperwork about a month ago online and it should be saved accessible via zocdoc. Upon further checking, it was located. Again, just a little frustrating! But once inside for the actual appointments, everything was positive and, as of now, my husband and I do plan to return to the office for ongoing care.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Kelner. She is a very professional dentist. Knows what she is talking about and is very kind to her patients. The office has this welcoming atmosphere. She answers any questions you have and heads you down the right path. Will see her in a few weeks and I am excited to go back to the dentist. =D

Looks like they live in the same building or her front desk personnel is doing her laundry in this office... While I was in the chair, dr. Kelner was looking for her tools in all drawers and was assisting another patient in the next room... My appointment was one of the first one and she was 10 minutes late. Will not go there again and would not recommend as this office didn't meet my criteria of standard dentist office.

I am a 42 year old African American male and I have had many experiences in the dentist chair. My experiences have all been relatively decent though I will say I'm no fan of the experience in general. That said, my recent visit with Dr. Kelner was the most uninformative, unwelcoming and most painful I've had to date. I switched from my assigned primary dentist to Dr. Kelner because of the ZocDoc reviews that were so favorable for her (and because of the bad reviews for my assingned dentist). Her receptionist/assistant was decent to me though never did I feel especially welcomed, though that didn't bother me all that much. The first thing I noticed upon meeting Dr. Kelner was a look of disappointment. I won't try to establish why this might have been the case but it was completely apparent and discomforting. After telling her about a pain on the upper left side of my mouth she spent one (1) minute investigating my mouth to find nothing wrong. She then had her receptionist/assistant take upwards of 6 x-rays. And then there was the cleaning. I did not come for a cleaning I merely wanted to get a consultation, but a cleaning was offered so I gladly excepted thanking her for making time as she was tending to two other patients simultaneously with me going from room to room. She was most insensitive, carving away at my teeth like a carpenter to wood. As I squirmed in the chair in obvious agony her only conciliatory act was to say "I know, I know" as she continued to aggressively grind away at my mouth. I will never go to her again and I would recommend that unless you really like pain and like to feel unimportant to stay away from this dentist.

I brought my 4 month old baby boy, and the receptionist was so helpful entertaining him when I was in the chair. Very nice. The cleaning was not so bad either- I remember getting a cleaning from a previous dentist, and I felt like I was being butchered!

Dr. Kelner and her staff helped me deal with my fear of dentists. Despite the amont of dental work that needed to be done in just one sitting, I was made comfortable and pain free. I would highly recommend to all, specially patients that are apprehensive about having to sit in a dentist's chair.
