The cleaning was not effective nor worth my insurance. She was I my mouth for 5 mins. I brush my teethlonger than that. If feels like that just took my insurance money and gave me a medium service.

This was my second visit to this office. My first visit was amazing! I was seen right away. The staff wasfriendly and the office and waiting rooms were clean. However, during this visit, I waited about 15-20 minutes to be seen, the staff were short and cold. Moreover, the office and waiting area were visibly dirty. Hopefully, this was an off day and not the new trend at this location.

It was ok for an initial visit. My 9 yo felt comfortable. They were very accommodating as I had the wrong day for our appt... waited longer to be seen. Next visit will probably go much smoother and on time.

Dr. Patel is a great dentist. My cleaning was thorough and she explained everything she noticed happening with my teeth. The front desk staff was very efficient and come off much kinder in person than over the phone. Overall, satisfactory dental visit.

When I arrived I had to complete a form, once I submitted I was called by the nurse. X-rays were done quickly, Dr. Patel came into the room a few moments after. Once we discussed the solution one of the receptionist assisted me ensuring my payment process will be manageable. All staff was pleasant and eager to assist. I will be returning, recommending this facility and Dr. Patel.

I think she maybe a fantastic dentist but she may not be a people person . Eye contact was minimal from the beginning of our interaction. Other than that , I think I’ll keep her for now next visit will determine staying power .

Staff made an effort to confirm insurance coverage for each step of my visit. Took care of my issue same day despite being a new patient. Only downside was waiting so long in the chair, as they had multiple patients the dentist was working on in the same time slot.

I haven't been to a dentist for a while (3 years), so I'm not sure what the "updates" in treatment are. But after getting x-rays from the dental assistant, the Dr. shows up and starts the ultrasonic scaling. That was painful, but not her fault. It's mine for not going to a dentist in 3 years. She then finishes and says "done." That's it. I spat out blood and they didn't even offer a mouth wash, or tooth brushing or flossing. I can still feel some of the plaque stuck in between my teeth. They didn't use a perio probe and tell me my gum depth. At least a little smoothing would have been appreciated. Dr. Patel had no bedside manner. She offered very little information on the current state of my teeth. While I'm guessing I have no cavities, it would have been nice if she had said so. The only reason I didn't stick around to ask was that I felt so terrible. Never coming back here again. Never recommending.

I loved that the Doctor herself cleaned my teeth- and I didn't walk out feeling mangled or violated like I have at other dentists. Also, X-rays show up instantly right in front of you on a big screen- no waiting. Very easy to discuss with Doctor. Sunglasses are provided to shield eyes from bright lights, and facilities and equipment are modern, new and clean. Examination rooms are painted in subdued colors, with elegant finishes, and thankfully no jarring music to listen to.

My appointment was at 9:45am and I got there at 9:45am. Because I was a first time client I had paperwork to fill out. By the time I was finished the Dr. was ready to see me. She was knowledgeable about what needed to be done. The office was very clean and tidy. I was out of the office in one hour.

I was a new patient and thus had forms to fill out. But I was seen right away even though I was a little late. I called and rescheduled. I was in and out under an hour. And she really cleaned my teeth. They automatically set me up for my next appointment in 6 months.

The hygienist that helped me before the dentist came was unfriendly and kept having to take extra photos of my mouth and making me bite down on that plastic thing for x-rays without apologizing for the inconvenience. Then I waited for about 30 minutes for the dentist to finally come (no one told me it would be a long wait, nor did they apologize for the wait). The dentist was nice enough, but was too quick with the cleaning and exam. I felt like I was rushed after waiting so long. I am not planning on going back. The receptionist was probably the most kind.

Up to date equipment. Quick entry nice staff. Thats it. Dr. Nupur came in didnt say hello and was sniffling and coughing. I should've gotten up there. Just started the work. Explained I had cavities for the first time in my life that needed to be filled. Also needed a root canal. Oh well. It is what it is. My insurance should cover this i thought. While filling a tooth and coughing (even though she had a mask on) in my mouth yuck her assistant comes in with how much my insurance deductible would be. She quoted me a price while she had me numbed up and stopped unitl I agreed. It seems like she would of stopped if I didnt have the money to continue. I will go check on my canal that she says needs to be done but not here

Dr Patel was professional but did not take care to explain why she recommended a particular course of treatment and at one point even said "Oh, I forgot that you don't look at these images every day so you can't interpret them." I would have appreciated some more help understanding the results of the x-rays. The front desk staff were quite rude and incredibly unhelpful, unreliable and inconsistent. When I requested a copy of my records one of them kept me waiting there for about 5 minutes without saying anything as her computer rebooted, and then gave up and asked me to call the next day. When I did, she said that the copies would be fifty to mail, which was not mentioned on the day and is incredibly steep for access to a copy of my own medical information. When I called again they said that there would be no charge for the records but that they could not be mailed - I had to pick them up in person. That's three different versions and this point and I am never going back again. The front desk staff make up half the experience and this one was ruined by them, unfortunately.

Dr. Patel was very delicate with her handling of my teeth and gums when cleaning my teeth in regards to monitoring my pain and/or discomfort threshold. Quite possibly, the most delicate I have had any dentist handle my teeth. If you have children, Dr. Patel would probably be a good dentist for them to see.
