This was a very pleasant visit. As a new patient I was taken back quickly after my paperwork and met the doctor within minutes. I was happy to have the dentist get right to work and actually carry out my cleaning,it gave a personal touch instead of seeing the doctor only for a moment at the end of the visit once the dental hygienist is finished. She was quite gentle with my very sensitive gums and frequently asked how I was doing. Friendly, forward, complimentary, and clean- this office is a go to for the fast appointments and late availability. The only downside was paying out of pocket, I felt it was a very expensive cleaning in comparison to past offices.

The location and doctor were nice, but having to wait 40 minutes when I was the only patient there and the low quality facilities (chipped floor tiles, ugly green walls, and dirty restroom) will keep me from coming back here.

Good visit. Pretty standard as far as cleaning goes. Dr was very friendly and warm. Lovely personality and didnt do any unnecessary things or tell me i need a whole bunch of work done just for the money. Will go back

I was called an HOUR after my original appointment for a consultation (urgent visit) that was expected to take less than ten minutes if all went well. The doctor took x-rays (which it was unclear whether or not they were consulted,we did not review them together) and proceeded to try to upsell me to do a cleaning and focus on updating paperwork rather than focus on treatment. My mouth was examined for 30 seconds despite what I shared regarding my symptoms and I'm worried I may need to see a second provider. Would not go back.

Everyone is very nice and warm there however I had to wait too long and there were only two patients ahead of me. Dentist is very helpful in giving tips on how to beat take care of your teeth but thecleaning was way too quick and there was still stuff in my teeth afterwards. Wouldn’t go back

This was the worst experience I have ever had with a dentist. She spent a total of 5 minutes cleaning my teeth and the same amount of time to check for symptoms of TMJ as I was interested in a mouthguard. She barely gave me time to digest the lprice and agree to the mouth guard before she was fitting me. The fitting was extremely brief as well. When I went to pick up the mouth guard I found it was too tight but the dentist did not want to see me. Finally she saw me and insisted the mouth guard fit. 2 weeks later and I still cannot wear the mouth guard for a full night because of the pain. I am considering reporting her to the board.

First, I arrived at the office and had no idea where to go because there was no sign. Then I had to deal with the rude receptionist. Finally, things felt very rushed even though there were no other patients there. Nottotally satisfied with the treatment, either. Seemed very cursory and had some bonding done--another dentist I went to last year for the same thing did a much better job.

Wait wasn't too long. She didn't check my insurance or examine the ex-rays before she came in. The filling was quick. I was overcharged (because they didn't check my insurance). After multiple calls to the office and my insurance company disputing the charges, I was refunded. Would not recommend.

Terrible experience. Waited almost a hour to be seen. Then the dentist would not stop questioning me about why my teeth had so much enamel erosion and I was already feeling self conscious about my teeth. Filled several cavities and neverchecked my bite. Was unable to fully bite down and had jaw pain that evening and had to return the next day to have it fixed. Also found out she charged my insurance for a cleaning when she only scraped at my teeth for a few minutes. (Not cleaned by hygienist either).

Tried to do a procedure that would have cost me $400 and wasnt covered by my insurance. Also did a terrible job putting some sort of bonding on my teeth - they feel dirty and scruffy all the time. The squeaky clean feeling is gone

Doctor was ok. She took an xray but didn't talk to me about my wisdom teeth which I know are an issue from a previous dentist. The cleaning was fine. She tried to sell me on invisalign but I wasn't interested.The hygienist was very sweet and I had almost no wait time. I wish the doctor had been more engaged and interested.

Relatively poor experience. Office is unmarked and difficult to find. Then long wait to see the dentist with no updates and from there it doesn't get much better. Wouldn't recommend.

This low rating is due entirely to the service performed. The assistant was very nice and professional, she took my x-rays and took a look at my teeth then said the dentist would come in and do the cleaning. The dentistcame in and introduced herself, looked at my teeth and gave me feedback, which went fine. Then when it was time for the cleaning, she took the equipment cleaned for less than 2 mins. She then said no need to do much because my teeth are great? WHAT? I told the assistant I haven't been at the dentist for a year and came in for a deep cleaning and they hardly cleaned and didn't even floss? I dont know what the deal was, but I would not go back nor recommend this facility. I have used Zoc Doc for a long time, and I have always had great doctors, this one was my 1st letdown.

This was awful. I waited for thirty minutes. She did not read my file at all!! I get back there and they ask if I'm there for a check up - NO. read your file. She puts on latex gloves -I'm allergic to latex. AGAIN, read your file. Once she announced the problem I said Thanks and marched out. I'll go to someone who actually cares enough about their clients to read their files and ask questions. Awful dentist.
