She was kind and incredibly helpful. The entire visit was pleasant and I cannot wait to go back!
Very professional providers and staff
I visited her office on an emergency basis and was able to get an appointment right away. She was very nice and professional. I would definitely recommend her to family, friends and co-workers.
Everyone was incredibly professional, helpful, and kind. I had a great experience.
Very professional, kind and makes sure you know exactly what's going on.
I went in for a cleanse and checkup. I saw Dr. Oriani for less than 5 minutes but her staff was so helpful and knowledgeable I honestly didn't wish for more time. The practice was great and I would highly recommend.
Dr. Oriani is great, very personable and explained everything in a clear an concise way. I definitely would recommend her if you don't already have a dentist, or are looking for a new one!
I went to Dr. Oriani for a second opinion regarding an oral infection. Both she and her assistant/staff were fantastic. After quickly determining that I would be better off seeing a specialist, she not only got me a referral, she lined up an immediate appointment with a periodontist in the same building. Everyone was fantastic. I am grateful for their help and will definitely be going back to Dr. Oriani for regular cleanings, etc.
Very transparent about costs which was refreshing!
Very fast appointment with very little wait time after I arrived. The follow up appointment was also fast. I feel that I received great care and the doctor explained every step and procedure.
I was expecting to have my cleaning done by a dental assistant, but I was pleasantly surprised Dr. Oriani did everything - x-rays, exam, and cleaning. They have some cool technology, so she was able to show me how well my teeth were doing. She's very personable. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Oriani calmed all of my dental-related fears. Going to the dentist can be nerve-racking for me but her calm and friendly demeanor and ability to explain all of my dental procedures with ease and in detail made my experience very positive. She did expert work on my new fillings and made my teeth cleaner than they've been in years. I look forward to continuing to see her for all of my dental needs.
great dentist, careful work, many thanks
Dr. Oriani did a great job and was very personable. I would recommend her to anyone who is any bit dissatisfied with his/her current dentist.
Great! She was very friendly.
Dr. Oriani was great! She clearly explained all the things that she was examining and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. I definitely recommend her.
Had a cracked tooth, that couldn't wait. ZocDoc found me a tooth savior appointment the same day. Great service for people like me, who travels and can never be sure if I will be able to make an appointment.
My first visit here was great. I was seen promptly, Dr. Oriani was very polite, efficient, and explained everything clearly. I was very pleased with the visit overall.
Very nice, easy to talk to, I learned I was flossing wrong so great education, and fast service - I was in and out in less than an hour. definitely recommend
Very friendly and personable. Explained what she was doing the entire time which made me more comfortable
She was very communicative with me about all of my options—my only wish is that she would have at least asked me before taking x-rays and things (especially since I was paying out of pocket.) But otherwise, very friendly and definitely knows what she is doing.
She is very personable and I felt very comfortable talking with her. She spent a lot of time showing and explaining what the X-rays and pictures showed. My only complaint is that she was a bit rough with the scaling tool and my gums were tender afterward.
Obviously the cleaning hurt, but she made it bearable and the whole staff was very friendly!
Dr. Oriani was very communicative and clear as to what was to be done and what I could expect. Highly recommended.
Great, personal and communicated all diagnosis right away.
An excellent experience. Dr. Oriani was thorough, detailed, patient, professional and kind.
