I tried out Dr. Mitri because of his excellent reviews here on ZocDoc ( a lot of which seemed to be from people like me who are afraid of the dentist after having bad experiences with other dentists in the past ). I'm so glad I found him on here, because my appointment was fast, easy and quite nearly painless (considering it'd been a few years since my last cleaning, I'm thrilled). He was so kind when I told him about my anxiety with dentists, and he made sure to explain everything he was going to do and what I could expect. I can't even express how relieved I am to have finally found a dentist I can trust. I highly recommend him. I've also never been to a practice where the dentist does the cleaning -- all in all, a great experience.
