Pleasant appointment as always. Dr. Manuelian is always calm, patient and reliable. Thanks to him, I found out I needed a new crown and was able to replace a Crown when I went back to my country for a few months.I would have liked to rely on his expertise, but my limited insurance plan unfortunately did not cover it. Highly recommend him as he is very honest, kind and has an innate ability to put anyone at ease.

I was very pleased with my checkup and cleaning with Dr Manuelian. The woman at the front desk was nice, the woman who took my x-rays was friendly and gentle, and the woman who scheduled my next appointment and took careof the billing was kind and patient. The dentist was friendly and didn't seem rushed. It was a great experience!

With my new insurance it was time to choose a new dentist. After looking up dentist in my area Dr. Richard came up. I was pleased with the reviews I read and decided to give him a try. The office wasclean and front desk girls were very polite. The doctor allowed me to tell him what my concerns were and answered every single question. After my cleaning he helped me with my follow up appointment and also contacted my insurance to see if my next visit involved me paying out of pocket so that I was financially prepared. My experience was amazing!!!! I’m so excited about my follow up. More importantly there will be no financial surprises once I’m there because we already discussed it. Very happy!

It was okay and I had more work done and then a year later my crown has a black circle around the gum. I have since found a new dentist and must have the crown etc completely redone to match the better dental work.

I was very nervous to go to the dentist; I have a fear of the dentist and I haven't been in a long time. However, my entire experience was great. The lady that checked me in was very friendly, and Iwas seen right away. Dr. Manuelian was kind, patient, and had a gentle touch for my sensitive gums. I have to go back for some fillings, and the woman that checked me out was nice enough to research how much it would cost through my insurance, as welll as the Price difference between silver and white fillings. Oh, and they even let me choose what Netflix show I wanted to watch in the exam room .

Dr. Manuelian is a great dentist. I have not been to a dentist for a long time after a traumatizing experience that i developed a phobia and I become anxious whenever I think about seeing a dentist. However, Dr. Manuelian changedmy view. He was very patient and explained my conditions and plans throughly. I have also recommend him to some of my friends and they also had a great experience with Dr. Manuelian. Thank you Dr. Manuelian!

I'm one of those people. One of you, maybe. I hadn't been to the dentist in almost two decades. TWO. I was terrified to go back, clearly, given the 18 years of not going to one, but boy, am I gladI did. Dr. Manuelian was terrific. His whole staff was, too. They put me at ease, never once did I feel guilty for not having gone to the dentist in ages. NOTHING. Best of all, all I had was one cavity! That's it! Sure, I gotta go back for a deep cleaning, but that's to be expected. The cavity filling process is so different than it used to be: painless and quick. The whole experience was, other than a few moments of pain, but again...eighteen years. That was it? I recommend Dr. Manuelian to literally anyone who needs a dentist, PARTICULARLY those of you who haven't been to one since last century.

My visit with was excellent. Every staff member I encountered was friendly, informative, and professional. The wait was pretty quick. I was nervous as this was my first time at this office and it had been a few years since mylast visit, but I was made completely comfortable (and wasn't scolded for waiting too long since my last visit). I went in because I had broken a filling, it was quickly repaired and he used a small amount of Novocaine (I appreciated that my face wasn't completely numb as I left). I will be back for a full cleaning ASAP and highly recommend.

The office is clean and the equipment seems new, however I felt like I was in a factory as the office was crowded. The Dentist was very awkward, barely introducing himself, seemed uninterested or unmotivated, did not explain much and gaveme short answers to my questions. I did not get the feeling I was being rushed, rather I felt as if he just did not expect a dialogue. He cleaned my teeth in a quick manner and that was that. I needed one tooth filled but he pushed it off to the next appointment--not sure why. Overall, I won't be going back.

I went in as a new patient with some tooth pain and Dr. Manuelian took care of it right there in that first appointment. Super easy and straight to the point, which I value. I followed up with a teeth cleaninga week later and once again, it was handled quickly and easily. They even helped me sort out my insurance, which I was embarrassingly ignorant about. No judgement about how long it had been since my last dentist appointment either, which was also appreciated. ;)

Historically, I hate dentists, but I think he was great. While I waited a while during my first appointment, he was really great. I feel like a lot of dentists try to rip you off with invented gum treatments or cavitiesthat don't need to be filled, Dr. Manuelian was completely honest and explained everything well. I followed up because I had a cavity and he was super gentle.

Mr. Manuelian and his office team were very professional and kind through the whole process- paperwork, x-rays, cleaning. The wait was longer than I expected. I wasn't seen until a half hour after my appointment time and I was 15 minutesearly (they also ask that their patients be early), for a total of 45 minutes of waiting. Mr.Manuelian was gentle during my cleaning and had good feedback about what I should be doing to practice better oral health.
