Dr Rick diagnosed my issue, gave me treatment options, provided me with my out of pocket responsibility, and walked me through the procedure process prior to beginning the work. He and his assistant Sharene made sure I was ok during theprocedure and during my wait times. I, for one, don’t really like going to the dentist, but I certainly recommend Dr Oklin to everyone.

Dr. Oklin is the most down to earth dentist I’ve met in Florida. He ultimately wants what is best for you as a patient while keeping cost concerns front and center. He is very honest and professional. I with complete confidencerecommend Dr. Richard Oklin and his staff for all your dentist needs. He even saw me in an emergency when I had chipped off a tooth without an appointment. He also analyzed our insurance and gave professional feedback on our plan.

Dr. Oklin is a Awesome Dentist! his staff has Excellent Customer Service. I'm terrified of Dentist, but his Humor made me feel comfortable and relaxed. This was a Great experience for me being that this was my 1st tooth filing. Iheard so many stories and didn't know what to expect. He made me feel so comfortable that I thought I was at a Comedy Show. LOL! I didn't need a shot to numb my gums for the procedure. It happen so fast I didn't even realized he was finish with my tooth. I love his jokes and sarcasm. Dr. Oklin is Hilarious! Dr. Oklin will be my Dentist for Life. I was referred to him by a Co-worker that he was a family Dentist. She was correct. he don't rush you and he explains everything to you with options.

Actually I don't want to recommend this gem of a dentist because I don't want him to be flooded with appointments and make it hard for me to get into see him! BUT he is BY FAR THE BEST DENTIST Ihave seen in over 40 years! He actually cares about his patients ! I am amazed that dentists like him actually still exist. I have seen many and NONE compare!

Dr. Oklin has an awesome personality and a passion for what he does! I have to give him a special shout out for giving me a heads up as to what was going on. His office was a little behind theday I went (which happens) but he made EVERY effort to ensure that I was taken care of, including checking me out and scheduling my next visit himself! !
