Dr. Silhan always takes the time to explain every procedure in layman's terms. He also gives guidance on how to best care for your teeth pointing out areas that are patient specific. Also, he never double books - or overbooks - so you're seen right on time - making it clear that he values your time. He also doesn't over-charge which is a real plus for a retiree like myself.

Dr Silhan is the best! In a time where most medical professionals leave you waiting as if your time has no value- Dr. Silhan is the opposite. In addition to his extreme competence- he is also so considerate and immediately puts you at ease- he takes the time to explain his assessment and never rushes you - as he encourages you to ask questions. A few weeks ago I was in the laundry room of my building and overheard another tenant talking about what a great dentist he is- I have to agree.

Had to sit in his office while he verified my insurance himself, and of course all was verified, but took a long time - could’ve done that before the appointment. 2 minutes into the appointment he told me that he wouldn’t do what I came for today - filling must be done another day (empty office, why Monday?) and he does not do impleants, The rug on his head looked like a dead rat - just lose it, I’m sure bold is better than this. Not coming back.

He does the cleaning in like 25-30 min...doesn't feel like its super cleaned though. I mean he does a decent job but i feel its rushed. I think one time I was in and out in 25 min flat, the cleaning itself should be that time..
