Thoroughly professional care, delivered in a friendly atmosphere. Always ready to go the extra mile to take care of a patient -- several years ago, I broke a tooth while eating lunch and was able to see Dr Marko that very afternoon for a temporary crown.

Hygienist visit yesterday followed by DDS check-up. Very satisfied. Clean, happy reception, welcoming rooms, professional hygiesist, highly competent DDS - all great. Very good "bedside manner". I'm usually apprehensive about DDS visits but I am MUCH less concerned about visits to the office of Dr. Markogiannakis. She and her staff have been GREAT. And, I've been there for about 5 years!

Broke a tooth over the holiday weekend. Got me in right away. Fixed the tooth and sent me off with printed instructions to care for the tooth after getting a temporary crown. Five stars.
