The best dental experience of my life! So compassionate and caring, presenting all options with the greatest patience. Did not feel rushed. Staff answered all of my questions and addressed all concerns. No one likes the dentist- This experience has changed my perspective completely!!!

My family and I have been to Dentists on Washington several times since my first appointment with Dr. Costello in December. He and his wife are both excellent dentists - gentle and quick but thorough. Their office is fully equipped withstate of the art exam rooms and panoramic x-ray machine. Super clean, pleasant office and great staff across the board. They work with you to figure out how to tackle your dental plan if you need several fillings, a crown etc - to space out the visits and keep it affordable. We wouldn't go anywhere else!

Very professional, clean, courteous. I'm not a dental price wiz, but even with my dental insurance his prices out of my pocket are still high. I will be shopping around before I get any work done. If money isn't an issue for you I would highly recommend.

I went to visit Dr. Ngo for an initial consultation. I told her my history of tooth grinding - that I had worn off a lot of enamel on my teeth (which left tiny brown spots on molars that sometimes lookedlike cavities) and need a new mouthguard to prevent grind. I also shared that I may need to get a filling fixed on my molar. I did not feel as though she listened to this history and instead told me I had approximately 5 cavities, needed a root canal, and needed to get my wisdom tooth pulled. I went to my former dentist to get a second opinion. He shared that I only needed a filling repaired and encouraged me not to get my wisdom tooth pulled.

I would highly recommend Dr. Costello. He was friendly, thorough, and listened to all my concerns. The office staff was great too. They came up with a treatment plan for me which clearly showed how much my insurance would cover, andhow much I would have to pay. Then they went over it with me, gave me a few options, and even a small discount. Definitely one of my better dental office experiences! They even have tablets attached to the light fixture so you can watch Netflix while you get your teeth cleaned. Very helpful if you're the anxious type.
