Verified Patient Reviews
EVERYONE, greeted me and were very friendly. I was nervous about going back to the dentist and they made me feel comfortable. I already made my next appointment!
Wow! Impressive staff and Dr. Durisek is direct and to the point, which is important and makes you feel comfortable that his goal is to take care of you and won’t mislead you on your treatment plan.
The staff was very friendly and professional! They were accommodating and I felt great after my appointment!
Comprehensive and thorough. Top notch office staff. My dental cleaning left no doubt about quality and skills of the dental hygienist.
Very comprehensive new patient exam with clear, concise and thorough explanations of my options for treatment. Dr. Durisek's approach is the one I prefer: consultative, where he provides the expertise and I make the decisions. I left with a treatment plan detailing what work would be done, how much insurance was estimated to pay and what balance I would be expected to pay. Everyone in the office was friendly and upbeat and completely professional.
Always welcoming and friendly, LOVE THE TREATMENTS AS USUAL, and this is comming from a guy that doesnt like Dentist. :P Rock on TEAM! Rubes
I absolutely hated going to the dentist until I found Dr.Durisek office...As soon as I walked in the office I felt comfortable,calm and collected thank you for restoring my trust ??
Very professional office & staff. Dr. Durisek very kind, respectful and thorough. Will establish myself as returning patient.
This appointment was well worth the wait! Everyone was very friendly and had great people skills! The hygienist was very thorough and explained everything so that I knew what she was doing and what to expect. The same goes for the assistant who took care of me after the hygienist had finished, letting me know about the images she was going to take and how those images along with the x-rays would help the doctor provide the most accurate evaluation possible. Then, Dr. Jernigan was outstanding! Very kind and also took the time to explain things. And unlike some places, it didn't seem like everyone was watching the clock in an effort to get me out of there without even doing what I went for. It was refreshing to be cared about as a patient and feel like my business was appreciated! I would highly recommend OpenWide Dental!
Carolyn, and all the staff, are very courteous and professional.
