I have the most sensitive teeth! I spend almost every dentist office visit in pain..not this one! Very cautious of mysensitive spots and did a great job of explaining my options.

I had possible root canal treatments. She recommended me just cavity fillings saying I might need root canal on these later. She was little pushy and tried to pull me in to schedule an appointment the same afternoon. However I decidedto get a second opinion. Turns out I do need a root canal on both teeth after all. The new doctor even referred me to a root canal specialist.

Pushy, tries to get you to pay more for services you probably don't need. Receptionist also wasn't very helpful with insurance and I feel like I got upcharged here.

Dr. Yelena Ostrovsky was very helpful, knew how much pain I was in and explained everything. Their receptionist was new, so it was a little difficult getting everything I needed-receipts, insurance info, etc, from her. But Dr. Ostrovsky waspatient with her and explained the confusion that is dental insurance to me and really helped me out. Unfortunately they do not do oral surgeries here though.

She genuinely is the epitome of a compassionate professional who takes pride in doing thorough & quality dental work. As well compassionate towards her patients individual financial means, their fears and reservations of being in a dentalchair and even beinng accomodating to scheduling conflicts. In short, I've not had a personal dentist in decades. Thats all changed thanks to Yelena. As far as Im concerned, there's no other dentist in SF.
