Dr. V is great, but the office at Ultimate Dental Care is highly unprofessional. It took me over 2 weeks for them to get back to me for scans (despite multiple calls). Ultimately, I changed my dentist even though Dr. Vis a great dentist, because I cannot deal with such a long wait time when I needed swift response to get back to the specialist. I eventually had to proceed without the scans.

While her bedside manners were great, the cavities she removed and filled have caused me severe headaches and extreme sensitivity to temperature and acidity. Will have to see another dentist to get my teeth checked

Dr. V. is enthusiastically passionate about her career and her patients. I've sat in the chair with many dentists, and by far, she is giving you 120%. When it comes to a cleaning, she's pulling out the elbow grease!

She’s very down to earth, nice, comforting and humorous while dealing with her patients. Makes you feel at ease and kept asking during procedure if I was okay and comfortable. Would highly recommend her????

Dr. V is.....OUTSTANDING!! Her coworkers at the office are downright spectacular and they all compliment each other. If I were in the field of dentistry I would love to work with such a fun-loving and caring group of people!

I LOVE Dr. Velamakanni! She is so attentive, kind, and points out things no doctor has ever noticed. Her team goes the extra step to make sure you feel welcome and that your insurance covers as much as possible. She's honestly my favorite dentist ever.

The wait for my first visit was very short--less than 15 minutes--and my follow-up appointment to fill some cavities was less than that, almost as soon as I got in (the procedure itself was under 20 minutes). Dr. Velamakanni was veryfriendly and explained everything she was doing and provided prices up front, so I didn't accidentally agree to something expensive.

I loved Dr. V! The office staff was courteous but less professional than Dr. V herself.
