Very kind and professional dentist. The hygienist and staff are also friendly and professional. Really cares about her patient. I used to work at my previous dentist, she got too busy and honestly doesn’t care for her patient’s health, whichis why many of my problems were dismissed. I’m very glad I switched over.

The doctor is somewhat careless and does not seem to care much about the patient. She is more interested in the money.

Most painless cavity filling I've ever had! Dr. Pinkhasova replaced the filling on three teeth and filled one cavity. I barely felt a thing. Also, the entire staff is female! Yay women! Would definitely recommend.

I have been Dr. Marina's patient for nearly 10 years and greatly appreciate the quality of dental care she provides to her patients. Dr. Pinkhasova is very professional, knowledgeable, and caring. During a visit, she makes me feel comfortableand takes her time to explain a procedure and answer all my questions. The staff is friendly and warm, and the office is bright and clean. I will absolutely continue going to Dr. Marina and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a great dentist.

Doctor is very unprofessional and rude! She refused to even do a regular check up for me as my insurance wasn't covering the x-rays. Would never see her again!

My experience at Dr. Marina's office is always a great one. I actually look forward to my dental visits! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and makes you feel right at home. It's also easy to schedule an appointment and Iusually never have to wait longer than 10 minutes to be seen. Dr. Marina always takes her time to explain procedures and options to me and even shows me problem areas on a special camera so I can see the bigger picture. The hygienist Joann is also great and always does a thorough job. I will continue to refer all my family and friends to Dr. Marina with confidence!

We initially had a good experience with this office but unfortunately, they have FAILED us in a big way. Be very wary! This office looks after their pocket books before their patients. Let me explain - we were presented with 2different crown procedures and was assured the upgraded crown be marginally more expensive (a nominal amount - or so we thought). We had asked this dental office to confirm multiple times over the span of 2 visits. Finally, we arrived on our 3rd visit to insert the crown and they informed us it was NOT covered. Total incompetence! Just an utter lack of miscommunication between the dentist, assistants, and front desk. Avoid this place at all cost. The office made us paid the balance of the procedure. The right thing to do would have been to cover this cost given the patients did everything right. They did not own up to their own mistake. I will rescind all my referrals to this place.

The Dentist spent less than a minute and vanished in a few seconds without paying a close attention to my dental health. It seemed like they were trying to make as much money possible by selling unnecessary services. Each time Ihad to pay from my pocket even though I had a good dental insurance. But one thing that totally pissed me off is that she was looking at couple of healthy teeth instead of the problematic ones. I will never visit her again and going to switch to a new dentist.

My previous dentist who I've been seeing since I was a child recently retired and so I was looking for a new one. I found Dr. Pinkhasova's office in my neighborhood. When I arrived, I was immediately welcomed by the staffand only had to wait about ten minutes before being seen. Dr. Pinkhasova was very friendly and informative. I had a good experience and would recommend her to my friends and family!

So i haven't been to the dentist in about 7 years , but i keep up with my daily hygiene (floss 2x a day , brush 2x a day). I was a little surprised that i needed a deep cleaning? theyshowed me x rays of what was supposedly "plaque"' but i didn't go to dental school so it all looked the same to me. So they had this camera that went into your mouth , and it showed me what i needed to see. I was a little skeptical at first , but by the end of my appointment i came to the determination that i need to keep coming here. Staff was great , Dr.Marina was so good to me, she explained the treatment i needed at an affordable price. And the hygienist was awesome! I will recommend her to everyone i know.

Contrary to the name of the dentist's office, this place was not very affordable in my experience. I had to spent lot of dinero out of pocket despite having a decent dental coverage for what I later found out from friendswas a fairly basic and routine procedure, by a very young and clumsy dental assistant trainee. I got the impression that they were trying to sell services rather than the well being of the patient. The snide remark regarding the state of my dental hygiene by the main dentist was very unprofessional, although I have to admit, my teeth weren't at their best. The only good thing is they are open during weekends, the only reason you might want to consider even going there.

My experience with Dr. Pinkhasova was great! I came in to get a couple fillings done and was pretty nervous about the injections, but the doctor kept me calm and used great distraction techniques which made the injections feel pretty painless.The fillings were done really well and the bite feels perfect! Highly recommended to anyone who wants a knowledgable and skillful dentist!!

Once I entered I was greeted by the friendly staff and was taken to see the dentist right away. After the X rays were taken, Dr. Marina spent time with me and explained everything that needed to be done and gaveme several alternatives to my treatment plan. She made sure to answer all of my concerns before we proceeded with any treatment. I felt as though Dr. Marina was easy to talk to and very proficient in all aspects of dentistry. I had a few cavities so the doctor had to give me anesthesia and her technique was great, I barely felt the shot at all and everything went smoothly. All in all I must say I am very happy with my experience at this office.

I got to Dr. Pinkhasova's office 15 minutes before my scheduled appointment. One my issues was addressed the Dr. Was able to make an appointment for me at a surgical orthodontist the same day. I would say in approximately 3 hoursbetween the 2 locations my issue was addressed and Dr. Pinkhasova's office followed up with a call to see that the appointment they scheduled for me went smoothly and to answer any questions. ??

Terrible experience. This doctor has the worst attitude. She is condescending and impatient, and only cares about jumping from one patient to another. The staff are friendly, but seriously there is a dentist on every block in this area. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

There was a period of time last year where I VOLUNTARILY went to Dr. Marina's office almost every week for one reason or another... teeth cleaning, cavity, follow-up, crown... you name it. She's awesome and so is her staff. I usedto dread going to the dentist but obviously, I really enjoy going here! She usually sees me right away, too!
