Usually I have no apprehension about going to the dentist. But this time I had a problem with sensitivity in oneof my teeth, so I was concerned that it would bother me during my cleaning. But Dr. Caglar is very gentle and caring. The sensitivity was not a problem during the cleaning. If Dr. Caglar noticed I was uncomfortable he would be careful. he would always ask if I was OK. I highly recommend Dr. Caglar.

I was a new patient to Dr Caglar and was extremely nervous not having had the best experience with other dentists in the past. The doctor put my mind at ease with his patience and expertise. He explained things every stepof the way and was concerned about my comfort level. His staff is also extremely friendly and helpful. It is rare to find any doctor with such a pleasant attitude and accurate medical skills. No wait time was a bonus!

After a painful experience at my previous dentist, I came to Doctor Caglar for a check up. He was very informative and thorough with me about what I had to get done. He explained the step by step process, showing memy x-rays and identifying the pain in my mouth. I needed a root canal and I was already a bit fearful of the process because of my past experience. Doctor Caglar was patient and reassured me that the process would be painless. He was right! I am so happy to have found a great dentist through this app who is professional, caring and passionate about his work. I come all the way from Washington D.C. to see Doctor Caglar. I highly recommend him!

My first visit with Dr. Calgar was due to a lost filling which was left unattended for years. When I was told I would need a root canal, I literally went to my car in tears. Today I started the rootcanal. I dragged myself to the office again- in tears lol, but left pleasantly surprised and with a whole new outlook on dental work. Dr. Calgar didn't waste any time- not only was I admitted immediately, but he got right to work (not even giving me the opportunity to have the full-blown panic attack that was slowly manifesting in the pit of my stomach). He was attentive, gentle, and expedient. I will certainly be frequenting his office regularly!

I am a very bad patient always scared of dentist dr Caglar is awesome! Helps me get thru everything I've had 4 teeth pulled and couldn't sleep for nights before thinking of it... He made me feel comfortable and always askedif I felt okay during procedure so glad I read his reviews and went to him! Also I had him pull two teeth on my second appointment that's a lot of trust! I will never go else where I've always had bad luck until now!
