Wow! Talk about bed side manner. So impressed with this entire staff. Each of them took time to know me andmy concerns. Dr. Farrey explained everything she was seeing and doing. It was super comforting considering how nervous I am with dentists.

One of my molars was bothering me in a very similar way as when I had my first root canal a few years ago. Dr. Farrey and her assistant were great listeners and made me feel very at ease and comfortable.They really valued my previous experience with this type of pain and didn't waste my time with needless explanations. They even offered to complete the root canal later that afternoon! For a first time patient, that sealed the deal - I plan to come here for all my dental needs going forward.

Dr. Lynn Farrrey and all her staff are warm and welcoming. She always explains what she is doing before she does anything to your mouth. There is no pressure on selling you anything you don't need. Her office works with yourinsurance company to find the best pricing when it comes to any expensive procedures. Everyone there is great and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly competent, caring and out of the ordinary Dentist!

I only visited Dr. Farrey once and it was the worst dental visit I've ever experienced. When I left my whole right jaw was so swollen it looked like I had a stroke. I could not feel on my right side for at least a day. Never again.

Fantastic visit. Staff were all pleasant, professional and prompt. They explained every step of the process in simple, clear ways – and made sure I understood the reasons for their recommendations. They were not pushy or trying to sell extraservices, and the office was super efficient with check-in, confirming insurance, payment, etc. I trust them with my dental care and plan to be back.

Overall she's a great dentist, BUT using Zocdoc to schedule her is a total bust. Out of the past 3-5 appointments I've scheduled, several have had to be rescheduled by their office due to the time slot shown not actually beingavailable, and several appointments were cancelled altogether because again, the time slots shown as available on Zocdoc were not actually available with the dental office. It's become extremely frustrating to try to schedule appointments, which is unfortunate because she is a great dentist who does try to work with you on payments, the necessity of procedures, etc. If you don't mind having to call the office to schedule, despite it appearing that you can do so online, she might be the right dentist for you. If, like me, you strongly prefer scheduling online, I'd recommend avoiding, as you'll go round and round trying to get things scheduled and end up having to call to schedule/reschedule ANYWAYS

Loved Dr Farrey and her crew. Very efficient as a whole and timely with the appointments - I was in and out within reasonable times. Dr Farrey found a pretty sizable cavity and another smaller one near the big one. Theywere able to squeeze me into an appt later the same day for a filling and I was done within the timeframe they gave me. Very responsive to your needs and they are pretty good with patients with sensitive teeth.

My visit with Dr. Farrey was an enjoyable one. I hadn't been to a dentist in 3 years but she was able to bring me back up to speed quickly. She also took up-close pictures of my teeth, which no dentisthad ever done for me before. This was a terrifying revelation but a great motivating tool as well (lol) and I appreciated the new perspective she offered. Dr. Farrey and her staff are very friendly, polite, and she has a good sense of humor. I had to go back to her for fillings and that process was as positive as getting fillings can be. Highly recommend her.

My first visit with Dr. Farrey could not have gone any better. I was nervous about trying out a new dentist, but the friendliness and respect shown by the staff (even prior to the appointment when speaking on the phone withKim, the knowledgeable lady at the front desk) throughout the entire appointment was top rate. Both Cecily (the dental hygienist) and Dr. Farrey provided great information throughout the appointment, answered questions, and made sure I felt comfortable with my treatment plan. Kim was patient with me and walked me through the various cost estimates and scheduling options. I'm looking forward to continuing my care with Dr. Farrey.

I came to Dr. Farrey after 2 years of not seeing the dentist. My experience with dentists has been terrible throughout my whole life, and the idea of dental work makes me panic. Dr. Farrey showed me that visiting the dentistdoes not have to be scary or terribly painful. She is beyond polite and professional and truly cares about her patients. She makes small talk and explains what she's doing just enough to make her patients comfortable. It is so refreshing to be able to get dental treatment without suffering extreme pain or fear. Thanks, Dr. Farrey!
