I was 15 minutes late for the appointment and it was the end of the day and the Dr was patiently waiting even though my son was the last patient of the day he treated my son very well and informed him of each technique he was performing which put my son at ease the Dr's bed side manner was excellent he talks to his patients and I felt comfortable enough asking any questions because of this visit I decided to make this dentist my son's permanent dental service provider

The Dr was great he informed me of my son extraction why the tooth needed to be removed he made my son feel at ease during the process and that's saying a lot because my son is a minor and never had an extraction before I will use this dental service as my sons primary dental care the staff were polite we were seen right away there wasn't a feeling of urgency to get the patient in and out of the dental chair quickly compared to other dental practices the dentist took his time explaining the procedure as well as tips on improving oral hygiene with wearing braces that my son has placed on as well

In the past I have had a significant amount of anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist, however, after my first visit with Dr. Markel I felt confident I could have an anxiety free dentist experience. I have been his patient for the past three years and will be taking my five year old to him as well. He is an expert at making one feel comfortable-reading the situation, exercising patience and communicating with ease and respect. He has also proven to be highly knowledgeable and skilled. I had a large cavity which my previous dentist had told me I would need a root canal. When I saw Dr. Markel he acknowledged the possibility, but filled it and two years later the tooth and filling are doing excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Markel!

Paul is a great dentist. Everytime I visit him, he's friendly and informative. When doing an examination or cleaning, he takes the time to explain and discuss what he's doing and strategies for good dental care, for example; "Tooth whitening works off the principles of negative pressure which draws stains to the surface, but this can sometimes leave teeth sensitive, so be careful." He's great at giving you options about your care without pressuring you in a certain direction and seems to generally care about his patients, highly recommend.

An absolutely fantastic dentist. We all know that a big part of dentistry is discomfort and pain, which why most of us don't particularly enjoy these visits. However Dr. Markel goes above and beyond any dentist I've ever visited to do everything in his power to make even the most unpleasant procedures be as comfortable as possible. For example, he pays premium for a higher grade numbing anesthetic before he ever gives you an injection and he lets it settle there for 5 minutes to make sure you never feel a needle. Then the main anesthetic itself he goes out of his way to keep warmed in a special chamber that keeps his injection at body-temperature so that you don't feel the painful shock of cold fluid going into you. And even beyond that, he uses tiny diabetic needles for his injections so you really don't feel a thing. Honestly he didn't even provide information himself, I'm just curious and asked him why the procedure was so easy and we ended up chatting about a bunch of fun technical stuff, I couldn't recommend him higher for anyone!

Filled out forms online through ZocDoc and everything was ready to go when I walked in the door. I arrived at my appointment time and they were ready for me immediately - no wait! Very important as I was coming during my lunch break. Appreciated the natural light from big windows where patients are treated. I liked that dentist cleaned my teeth instead of an assistant - I suspect this is due to their small staff, but I preferred this. Great experience, I already recommended to my co-workers. So happy to have found such a conveniently located dentist that takes my insurance, I'll be back!

I actually didn't get anything done at my appointment because I had a lot to figure out with insurance and other things. However, that was all my fault and lack of foresight. Dr. Markel's office was absolutely great. I was the only person when I arrived to the waiting room, so the receptionist starting working with me right away. NO WAIT TIME! The receptionist was so kind and patient throughout the whole process. She really worked hard to figure things out for me and didn't make me feel like an annoyance, which I definitely felt like I was being -_-. Dr. Markel came out at one point to maybe check on things. He greeted me and we chatted for like two seconds. He seemed nice as well. I already scheduled another appointment with them this coming Tuesday, so I hope to be able to leave a more thorough review after actually seeing the dentist.

He's very nice and his examination has a nice view from the window, which is better than staring at generic tooth posters. He blasted my mouth with baking soda. Never had a cleaning like that. It was super messy, and your mouth feels like a dessert, but teeth came out clean.

Doctor Markel and his staff are amazing. I had to have a wisdom tooth pulled unexpectedly and he was very gentle and informative through the process because I had a lot of questions. He even started a cleaning on my teeth while the anesthesia was kicking in to save time. I highly recommend him. I finally found a great dentist that I am not afraid to see.

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Markel. He was fantastic! Dr Markel had a wonderful bedside manner, was totally professional, did not try to "up-sell" services (quite the contrary), and was just generally terrific. The offices are very clean, and I have never been in and out of a dentist's office quickly and with so much personal attention. I have found my new dentist!

He was knowledgeable and answered my questions. He filled my cavities and contacted my insurance to perform a surgery. The office is small and clean. His and his assistant are friendly enough. Unfortunately, his assistant did not contact me to tell me that they were no longer accepting my insurance!!! It was a waste of time, money and energy. Hopefully they will better communicate with clients.
