Very happy with Dr. Markel. First, it was the most painless, efficient cleaning I've ever had. It had been a while since I'd been to the dentist and I was bracing for a long, painful visit - but I was in and out in less than 30 minutes! Second, he didn't try to upsell me on any treatments or services, which many other dentists have done before. I so appreciated his no-nonsense, straightforward approach. It's not the prettiest office, but I'm not looking for a spa - I need someone to take care of my teeth.

Dr. Markel was really great. I'm very anxious at the Dentist and he was really kind and understanding. He took the time to explain what I had going on with my teeth and explain everything before he did it. He was also sweet enough to stay late so I could have a cavity filled. The office was responsive, clean, and professional.

I will start off by saying I hadn't been to a dentist in 7 years because I didn't have insurance and I was terrified. Add to that the fact that I went in knowing I would need major work on at least one tooth and I was so anxious I was ill about what was going to occur. Dr, Markel didn't sugarcoat a thing but he also didn't treat me like a rank idiot either. He showed me with a mirror what was happening, teaching me about my own mouth and issues in a way that put me at ease even as I was, of course, chagrined at delaying my dental appointment to the point of needing such work. Never mind the fact that I have to go back, I feel comfortable enough in Dr. Markel's office TO go back. His staff was friendly and helpful. It was the best possible place to hear the worst case scenario with my teeth.

I arrived at the office about 15 min early and was taken in right away. Dr Markle was very warm and addressed all of my concerns, explaining his findings in detail as he went. I came to Dr Markle because I was concerned about the lack of attentiveness with my previous dentist. I received a cleaning and a treatment for sensitivity caused by my current orthodontic treatment. I will return to Dr Markle for future visits.

Dr. Markel is THE best dentist. Very gentle and works carefully to put you at ease and make sure you are totally comfortable. Also, he doesn't oversell you on dental work, and he doesn't patronize/lecture you about your (sometimes not so great) dental habits. Thank you Dr. Markel!

I am petrified of the dentist and avoid going where ever possible, but was recommended Dr Markel by a close friend. He put me at easy straight away, explaining exactly what he was about to do throughout my examination and really made me feel at ease. He is definitely the best dentist I have seen and would recommend him to anyone in need of a new dentist!

I've been a patient of Dr Markels for nearly a year now and he is hands down the best dentist I've ever had. He's very knowledgeable, skillful and caring. He's very kind and has a gentle touch. I've referred my entire family and nearly all of my coworkers to him and they all absolutely love him. I'm so lucky to have found Dr Markel.

Dr. Markel was able to offer a second opinion for dental care that was more in line with what was medically needed, and not hyped by cost. He was confident in the work needed, and was able to get me back in for an appointment to get started the same day.

Went in for a general consultation for a broken tooth that previously had a root canal. He gave 3 options, clean and repair root canal (which needs to be done be a specialist), implant, or just extraction. He recommended the implant and give their upfront pricing if my insurance didn't cover it. Its a block from work and zero wait time.

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

I chose this dentist due to convenience - it was close to home. Upon arriving, I noticed the office setting was somewhat barren and uninviting. There was only one patient ahead of me - so the wait was short. The dentist and hygienist worked together on my appointment. They were both courteous and had good bedside manners. I went in for a general cleaning, and they spent an satisfactory amount of time. I would have preferred a more thorough cleaning, but my standards are somewhat high due to excellent dental care in the past. My insurance was overcharged, so I felt that was suspect. I usually do not receive a bill from my insurance, since my benefits include cleaning and general check-ups.

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.
