I really appreciated how responsive the hygienist was to my needs. She recalled my sensitivity to pressure and cold, and problem solved in order to still fulfill the requirements of a proper cleaning, without the pain. I was really so pleased.

I was seeking a new dentist and really wanted a single practice, private office. Dr. Lucente had pretty good reviews, and luckily accepts my insurance. It was a great experience! He seems to really know his stuff, did a thorough exam, and cleaning (his hygienist was not in), all while being an extremely pleasant gentleman. His receptionist is also very professional and sweet at the same time. The only negative was that I waited for more than 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, but he was working on a patient so understandaby sometimes things run late. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend him to anyone in search of a new dentist!

I am always nervous about finding a new dentist but I lucked out! I went here for a routine cleaning/x-rays and then a follow up cavity filling. The receptionist was very friendly and the wait time was only a few minutes. The cleaning was great...the hygenist was very friendly and informative about what she was doing and answered all my many questions! The Dr. (Lucente) was also very friendly and well spoken/gentile. I definitely recommend this practice!

A very nice receptionist called to confirm my appointment the day before and once again to confirm that there were no problems with my insurance. I arrived around 10:25 for my 10:30 appointment. I had already filled out paperwork online, so I just had to sign a waiver. The hygienist saw me promptly at 10:30. She did my ex-rays and was very efficient and communicative. She was smiling and talkative, but very professional. Roderick Lucente was also very nice and did a thorough job of looking over my teeth. The whole experience was very pleasant and I'm looking forward to my next cleaning!

Got a filling, that as right after I left, flaked off non-stop in my mouth. I kept having to spit out little bits of toxic filling. Two days later, the filling popped out! I would not go back.

What a great place!!! The hygenist was amazing. I"ve never had such a thorough cleaning. She made sure I was comfortable and let me know what was happening. The place was small but updated and clean. I had no wait time. Dr Lucente was very nice too. He was straight forward and told me the issues I had. Did not try to push anything I didn't need. I'm happy to have found my new dentist.

The visit was fine. The staff probably doesn't really pay attention to comments on ZocDoc, they probably don't have time which is understandable. But zocdoc is fine for making an appointment but not really for communicating more than when you are going to be there, not any details of what you are coming for. If there are any details you need to convey before you get there, you are probably best to ask to speak to Dr Lucente on the phone for a minute, if it's really critical that he know something before you arrive.

It was my first time at this office and I was seen right away, I didn't wait at all. The staff was very friendly. Alma took my X-rays and did my cleaning, she was very nice and made the visit very comfortable. As soon as I was done with my cleaning Dr. Lucente came in and was also very nice and very informative. I'm very happy that I made the decision to go to Dr. Lucente's office.

My hygienist was so lovely, I believe her name is Alma. She was so sweet from the moment she brought me in, and was very forgiving with me while I was having trouble holding steady for the x-rays. She did not hesitate to show me the images when they were done, and explained some basic things about the state of my teeth (e.g. tartar build-up, possible problem areas, etc), but also said that the Dr. would be able to see if anything was wrong. Then she popped open Spotify on the laptop and played music (Bruno Mars) while she talked (and joked) me gently through the cleaning. Dr. Lucente was also very nice. He jumped right in and started by asking me about what I was having trouble with—and he listened to everything I had to say. He did a thorough inspection and told me that I did have a cavity and some decay in my wisdom tooth, but I might just need fillings. I really liked that his go-to wasn't just extracting all 3 of my remaining wisdom teeth—that really made me feel like I could trust him more than my previous dentists, all of whom wanted to get those suckers out as soon as they saw my x-rays. Will definitely be returning.
