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.

I have been seeing Dr. Markel for many years and can't recommend him highly enough! I have also referred many patients to him and they all have nothing but great things to say. He is fast, gentle, and never tries to pressure you to do a procedure you don't actually need.

An overall positive experience. Cleaning didn't take long. Did have to wait because he was finishing an emergency root canal. Very sweet and accommodating admin at the desk.

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

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!
