Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice staff and doctor. Wait time was very reasonable. Did a good job with the cleaning and was very clear about discussing the condition of my teeth. Will return.
It was great, she was very sweet to me and professional and my cleaning was quick.
The office was tidy and professioanlly managed.
The wait time was longer than expected, but the actual treatment time was quick and effective. They even squeezed in a filling right away, so I got everything done in one visit.
Dr. Gerts is my favorite dentist, always friendly and makes me feel comfortable in the dentist's chair. I also love Lisa at the front desk; her warmth and kindness makes going to the dentist a pleasant experience.
My experience there was excellent as a matter fact outstanding the women in the front desk or so sweet and made me feel so welcome and then just when you think the welcoming is over the doctors treated my son and I like family.
Very professional and efficient. Will visit again.
Very knowledgeable, straightforward and helpful. I will definitely recomend him to friends and family.
If you want to have a nice and beautiful smile I would recommend doctor Gerts. You never will make mistake. Perfect doctor!
Dr. Gerts is the most professional dentist that I have ever been seen by. He performed a root canal on me and took care of all of my cavities and cleanings. He explains everything in depth to his patients until he is sure that they understand, and he does such an amazing job that there is hardly any pain afterwards. I will be recommending him to all of my friends and family in the future. I have definitely found MY dentist.
The Perfect Doctor!
I came in with some specific concern (bonding on a retainer wearing out and a cavity) and the dentist never dealt with them. Instead they kept pushing deep cleaning saying that the dentist would also address my issues but every time (3 appointments) he was busy or there wasn't time. This dentist seems like he is just out to bill insurance companies without doing the work. The hygienist was very good.
Very professional and Excellent service.
This was one of the amazingly swift doctor visit. I was in & out. & impressively clean. I highly recommend!
Dr. Gerts' office is near my apartment. It's nice to have a doctor so close by. His office is up-to-date and all his employees were very friendly and helpful. I had to wait 40 minutes to see him and I arrived 5 minutes early to my appointment. The wait was disappointing but his proximity to my home will keep me coming back.
Great dentist friendly staff
Dr. Gerts was friendly and tried to answer all my questions, but I didn't really have a good experience at this practice. The dental cleaning was super superficial, painful and his assistant seemed to not really know how to use the suction device. I felt very uncomfortable during the procedure and won't go back there.
Very short wait and the receptionist was very nice! I got taken care of Vladislav gerts and he was very nice and fast with cleaning
It felt really short for a standard cleaning (less than 10 minutes). The consultation took just as long as the cleaning, which seemed to only include a power floss and polishing. No explicit check for cavities (outside of the x-rays) or mention of plaque.
Great dentist for my first time there
Doctor V. Gerts is the Best! I repeat it every time.
The appointment was made with a quick turnaround. They had called promptly to ask if I could come in earlier because the dentist had personal business, and so I did. I came in earlier then the rescheduled appointment and was seen right away. While I was in the chair the dentist had great bedside manner - he was patient and encouraging. Unfortunately DentaQuest (Fidelis) does not cover root canals and I had to reschedule to a date when I would be switched over to my employer's insurance.
I hate going to the dentist, period. With that in mind, Dr. Gerts is an pretty friendly and polite guy. He is easy going and he performed my root canal, albeit this was my first one so I don't have any prior experience, pretty well. The only thing I hated was when he was doing the procedure I could tell by the scalpel he picked up that he was cutting into something, I just didn't know what. At the end he told me he had to cut into my gums to make room for the crown. It sucked knowing it was happening and not getting told why it was happening when it happened. I hate that. But I understand why he didn't say anything immediately since the whole thing was uncomfortable already, he probably didn't want to freak me out more. Overall, the whole procedure was pretty affordable, his staff is always nice and professional. I just hate dentists, but Dr. Gerts is a decent one.
Dr. V.Gerts is the Best!!!!
Dr. Gerts and his staff were very friendly and the service was great and done quickly yet efficiently and effectively. I highly recommend Dr. Gerts.
It was an overall pleasant experience!
Great! Super easy- in and out!
Just meeting him but I found him very capable, very credible, respectful, personable, attentive. Excellent.
I've never had a dentist appointment for cleaning that was so painful! The cleaning was sloppy with the tools and suctions as well as getting water and paste splashed all over my face. He was friendly and informative but I didn't understand why I answered all of these questions in the paperwork only to be asked all of them again in the room. The secretary was generally nice except complaining about her difficulty getting a hold of my insurance in which she left an inappropriate voicemail. It could have been worse but not worth going back.
He was great! Quick and easy cleaning!
A VERY long wait time but that was partially the fault of my insurance. The front desk was so helpful and the dentist was so kind. Already made my next appointment! Just bring a book while you wait.
Very clean, very professional, friendly environment
Dr. Gerts always walks me through the procedures, advises on which ones are immediate and which can wait, and is clear when it comes to out-of-pocket costs vs insurance coverage.
Very professional and friendly staff. Doctor was great. Speedy service. Highly recommended!!
He was extremely informative and bedsides manner was pleasant . I felt very comfortable in his car
Incredibly impersonal and zero communication with me while having a procedure.
Nice Guy did everything in an orderly manner.
Dr. Gerts gave me the quickest cleaning I've ever received. It felt efficient, but it was just so quick! It was also a bit painful and I've never had a painful cleaning. He did give me some good information about another service that I could benefit from, though. His receptionist is super friendly, warm and kind. I'd have no problem booking another appointment with Dr. Gerts.
Quick, friendly, clean. Great combination!
Dr. Gerts is a very professional, personable, and reassuring dentist. I'm happy to find my new go-to dentist in BK.
The visit was one of the best medical visits I have ever had. The office staff and assistant were extremely pleasant and the dentist explained everything. I didn't feel rushed at all.
I highly recommend Dr. Gerts who always treats all of his patients with professionalism and care. Taking his time and making sure that he addresses all your needs. From highly complicated cases including implants and dental surgery to a simple cleaning and check up, Dr Gerts uses his vast knowledge, experience and gives the patient the best possible treatment.
Friendly office atmosphere. Staff does try to accommodate personal schedules. Office is very clean. Dr. Gerts is a excellent dentist in all aspects in the dental field,explained everything that I needed to know about my teeth during my first visit. I do like that Dr. Gerts will give various options for treatments. I have had several dentists and I found him to be one of the best.
Me and my wife had been coming do Dr. Gertz for more than two years now, had always been very happy with the work he does. We some bad experience with dentist in the past and I was very cautious to make sure to find a right doctor for my family. Dr. Gertz had always treated me with professional courtesy and warmth, never too busy to discuss what needs to be done and what my treatment options are.
I have known DR. Gerts for many years. He has always impressed me with his knowledge and professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend him as the Dentist for all types of treatment from simple to most complicated ones. His office staff is very helpful and diligent.
I recently had to have a root canal and since you were in my insurance plan I called your office. Since the person who answered the phone was so pleasant I decided to make an appointment. You explained everything and what I should expect after the root canal was done. I have always heard horror stories that root canals hurt. But to my surprise it did not hurt during the procedure nor after. If anyone needs a root canal don't be afraid and go visit this office for you will have a pleasant surprise.
They made me feel very comfortable, and very informational.
The half hour of paper work should have been a warning. Seriously you need a lawyer to understand what your signing. I asked the attendant what one document was and even she didn't know. On the other hand if you want to have a used car salesman/mobsster kind of experience and then be harassed with phone calls for future appointments like a telemarketer than this is the place for you! Seriously, I was told how much was left on my insurance policy for the rest of the year and then goaded to make appointments before the year was over for services and shots I know I didn't need. Cleaning itself was excruciating. I mean it. I've never had such a painful cleaning. I was later explained to that it was I needed all this "work". The secretary was sweet enough... but not when she gets you on the phone. No ma'am. Besides the bordering on harassment type calls to schedule an appointment, I was once called to ask if I could re-schedule an appointment I NEVER made but some how magically appeared in their schedule. Amazing. For your sanity and your teeth's sake STAY AWAY!!
Incredibly efficient, professional and friendly. If I knew going to the dentist was this easy, I wouldn't have waited six years!
