She was wonderful! Very kind and clearly explained her assessment of my dental health in terms I could understand. The cleaning was the best I've had - so quick, painless, and thorough.

I first went to Dr. Okonkwo about 1 month ago and it was amazing. I have a huge fear of the dentist because I find that even when they use anesthesia, I still feel everything but not with Dr. Okonkwo. Wedid 5 fillings in one session and I felt nothing. She is such a professional and very gentle as well. I highly recommend her. The office assistants are also pleasant. Thank you for a great visit!

I usually never right these reviews, but Dr. Weruche was very professional, understanding and with humble positive attitude. In short time she did a great analysis of what work needed to be done and gave good advice. I can truly recommend her.

Loved our experience with Dr. Okonkwo, First thing that Doctor Okonkwo did was even though I had only an appointment for my daughter and my self she saw my son as well which was perfect because I was apply to seeher all in one day. Then not only did she make my kids and my self very comfortable in our first experience with Dr. Okonkwo she was very patient with my son which was perfect because he’s actually sacred of all doctor and always seem to cry at the end of every experience, but I was so happy that the only thing I had to do with my son was hold his hand. Thank you so much for our clean today Dr. Okonkwo. Everyone with children should go to her.

I waited for an hour with only one other patient in the office. I had to ask specific questions to get specific answers as the hygienist and Dr. were pretty vague with anything they told me and the cleaning was messy,painful and not as thorough as it could’ve been.
