Terrible service!! Just came from having a appointment I scheduled through Zocdoc for 1pm. I scheduled it for a consultation, let me say I’ve been here before and it’s been 8months which is why I was going. Ive also scheduled throughzocdoc for a consultation everytime I’ve gone. Everytime I go for my every 6months appointment I get a cleaning/ consultation with Dr. Violeta Skevas. The girl in the front super rude , said to me since I didn’t schedule for a cleaning which is what I wanted plus a consultation with the dentist that I see everytime and made my appointment for it would be a 2 hour wait!! It’s a shame because I liked Dr.Violeta but her front desk receptionist is so rude and that whole thing didn’t make any sense. I would find another dentist!

Dr. Skevas came off very pleasant, seems like a straightforward & honest person. After my first check up she recommend that I get night guard cause I grind during sleep. She showed my a clear hard plastic type said it wouldcost five hundred twenty dollars . I assumed that was the going price for custom night guards. So I paid, got the guards a few weeks later. After a year I happed to inquire the cost of custom night guards from other dental office, the highest quote I got was Three fourth. I even got another custom from online that’s of better quality and fits better for One twenty Dr. Violeta Skevas, it’s not nice to swindle money from hard working individuals just because they are in a venerable position to be easy taken advantage of :(

So I was called about my appt scheduled on Zocdoc because apparently their schedule doesn’t coincide with theirs So my 10am appt on Zocdoc was apparently booked So the Dr. herself called me, very professsional.. which I know I was havinga bit of attitude because I was frustrated but she remained patient.. so we rescheduled for 1pm the same day. I got there, registered.. did the paperwork& everything went smooth. Unfortunately nothing could be dont because I’m 39weeks pregnant but she did prescribe antibiotics Ofcourse safe ones for my pregnancy and breastfeeding. I will be back to get 2 root canals. It’s hard finding a good dentist& I think I found mine. She sat with me and answered EVERY question I had, explained everything very thoroughly, we laughed and my fear def went away.

Dr. Sekvas and her staff were incredibly friendly and patient. I went in for a consultation for wisdom tooth removal When it came to getting xrays for my wisdom tooth, the assistant was quite gentle with me. Truthfully, it was difficultprocess for me- i had to bite down on a part of the camera that goes in your mouth; and it had to be done at multiple angles. But the assistant sympathized with me, and kindly pointed out what I should do to make the process easier. Dr. Sekvas, along with another assistant, explained to me that they didn't preform wisdom tooth surgeries, but broke down how the process would go, along with explaining my xrays to me. The whole time the three of us were cracking jokes and it was the best dental experience I've had by far - and on top of that, she gave me a referal, so hopefully this Dr. is as wonderful as she is!

Dr Skevas’ office completely surpassed my expectations. From the woman at the front desk, to the woman who x rayed me, and finally Dr Skevas herself, I have NEVER received such hospitality in all my years and I have gone tomany different businesses. The office was spotless and everyone was extremely welcoming. That’s super rare, especially at places in the Bronx. Normally I feel rushed but they were so patient and kind. So glad she’ll be my primary dentist moving forward!

Dr. Skevas was so kind and comforting! She explained everything I needed to get done and talked me through the whole treatment plan for my root canal/fillings. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating from the day I called to bookmy appointment - as a nervous patient I really can’t recommend them highly enough. The office was clean and tidy. The wait time was long for my appointment only because it’s a school holiday and everyone was bringing in their kids today - I honestly wasn’t bothered at all.

I checked in with the dental assistant who told me that my insurance was lapsed 2 years ago. I informed the agent that I am sure that's not the case since I just received the insurance through my new job, abouta month ago. I called the insurance company and they advise me that I am fully covered and they do not have any records of any dental office calling to see whether I was covered or not. I went back and informed the dental assistant that the insurance company informed me that I am fully covered. The dental assistant handed me a piece of paper with a fax number and told me that I need to call the insurance company and tell them to fax the information to her. I was very confused, never have I ever been told by any medical team to contact my insurance and have them fax documents to a doctor's office. I would never recommend anyone to this doctor's office. I think the staffs are rude/unhelpful and straight up racist. Clearly, I was refused service because of the color of my skin.

They Hygienist (Mary) so lovely!! She's really sweet and made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Skevas was amazing! Explained everything and set out a plan of the things that need to be taken care of and how. The assistant that setme up was also very reassuring since I get very nervous being at the dentist. Front desk could be more professional and they should be checking the insurance before patients come in for their appointment. It's a waste of the doctor and my time.
