I was very pleased and impressed after my appointment with Dr. Elosta. I had a large filling replaced with a crown. The old filling was removed and the crown was fabricated in Dr. Elosta's office all in about two hours. Itwas the fastest, most efficient and most pain-free dental experience I've had! Dr. Elosta's office uses state-of-the-art equipment and every member of his staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Throughout the years I have delayed dental work for countless reasons, therefore, I'm now paying the price, literately & figuratively. I have extensive dental work in progress that will be greatly worthwhile when complete, which may be a yearor more. Please care well for your teeth throughout your life! I could not have choose a finer dentist, Dr. Elosta has a wonderful bedside manner & is always gentle, friendly and caring. (Consequently, all of the office professionals share the same kindly demeanor whether via phone, reception, or the patient care areas). The costs seem to be superior to others I found for implants, furthermore, lower than I had paid for 2 previous implants. Another considerable reason for my choosing Lansdowne Family Dental is that they are able to complete several procedures in the office; crowns, implants, extractions, bone grafts, etc. With my dentist retiring, Its exciting to find a phenomenal practice where they genuinely care about their patients!

I hate going to the Dentist, however, Dr. Elosta & his entire staff are excellent. I am a dentists dream, always having something that needs done. I have been going for many months and find everyone in the office friendly, professional& caring, absolutely no fear with them! Had a cleaning today, which I do try to keep up with at the very least. Hugo did the most thorough cleaning I have ever had, my teeth feel and look so clean & white. I ran into a woman on the elevator who works in the same building. She has been a patient of Dr. Elosta for quite some time, she said she absolutely loves the Dr's friendly bedside manor. Good enough for me, I made the right choice in a new dentist when my other retired. I would not hesitate to recommend to my friends & family.

Dr Wael Elosta is amazing. I came into my appointment with an extram high level of anxiety as I was scheduled to have a tooth implant. The nurse was so kind and caring during the procedure and Dr Wael Elosta wasalways making sure that I am as comfortable as possible. He did an amazing job - once he stared the procedure he stayed very focused, worked very precisely, always checking on my comfort and once finished showed me the before and after X-ray pictures. I am home right now, late in the evening and I have no pain or discomfort :) I can't believe how scars I was at the beginning of the day and how well all went. I can't be more happier to have Dr Wael Elosta as my doctor - ohh, I surely got my daughter and my husband to come see Dr Wael Elosta and both are very happy with the professionalism and care of the entire stuff.

I have had very bad experiences with previous dental practices in regards to getting fillings done. Dr. Elosta assured me that there would be ZERO pain involved with todays filling and HE WAS RIGHT! I never thought I would love togo to the dentist but I NOW DO! Five stars for this practice simply isn't enough for the quality of work!

This is not my first visit and my whole family and friends became their customers too. However, this is my first visit and treatment for tooth refilling. In spite of all bad stories I heated from other people having the sametreatment in other offices; I was a bit worried and scared. Dr. Wael Elosta made it so easy and I felt absolutely nothing. Was a great experience as usual. Thank you Dr. Wael and Landsdown Family Dental team. I am happy being with you and will definitely bring more customers in. Thanks again and again.

What a wonderful practice. I came upon them by doing an internet search as we are new to the area. They accepted the discount program I wanted to use and had good reviews. I am so glad I found them. Ihad my initial exam and then a second appointment for a crown. It was truly the best experience I have ever had in a dentist's office. Fast, painless, professional, kind-need I say more. Do yourself a favor or try this practice.
