I went in for teeth cleaning. Staff were wonderful. They were very friendly, very knowledgeable and informative about my needs. The office itself was neat and clean. Everyone wore extra protective gears which made me felt safe about covid and other infection.

Very friendly staff. Explained the procedure they were going to perform before they started the work and asked if I had any questions. During the procedures periodically were talking to me to make sure I was okay, comfortable, and not in pain. Explained what I had to do post the procedures and said I could reach out to them if I had any issues. Fantastic all around service. I would highly recommend Dr. Markogiannakis to my family and friends.

I became a patient of "Dr. Marko" after my long-time dentist retired and I have since discovered the advantages of a truly modern dental practice. I have been very pleased with her work, her professionalism and the caliber of her staff. Highly recommended.

Dr. Markogiannakis is a truly outstanding dentist. I have been benefitting from her professional services for several years and she always provides outstanding performance. Her restorative work is flawless, always a perfect fit and always a beautiful appearance. As others noted, Dr. Marko is a pleasure to work with, and provides a heads up on what services may be needed, providing important details before the services are received. Her associates are also professional, competent and courteous. I am extremely pleased to have found Dr. Marko for my current and future dental needs!

I’ve used Dr. Marko as my dentist for almost about 2 years now and I’m consistently happy with her work. She and her staff do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and make sure you understand everything that’s happening. She works with you to come up with a care plan based on where your teeth are at and what you want as your end result. I’ve had extensive dental work done (multiple crowns) all of which have been meticulously done so that they are the perfect fit and bite in my mouth. I had to see an endodontist for an evaluation and he told me that my temporary crown looked better than most permanent crowns. Additionally, They submit the paperwork to my insurance which removes so much stress from going to the dentist.

Dr Marco is the best dentist I ever had . I have been seeing her now for several years she and her staff are awesome . I am always taken on time . Dr Marco listened to my concerns and came up with a treatment plan for me. Dr Marco has such a soft touch u don’t even even feel when she gives u a shot of Novocain. The staff is very attentive I was there yesterday for extensive dental work and was given the royal treatment a soft pillow and a warm neck rest that smelled of lavender. I highly recommend her and her staff .

Going to Dr. Marko's is always a pleasure, despite the anxiety of pending dental work. She is extremely thorough and competent, and always explains what is needed clearly. Her staff is excellent, again very competent and helpful. This is a great team in action.

Best dental experience I’ve ever had! I appreciated the time spent reviewing pictures and X-rays of the teeth which needed filkings and also the procedure as well. I’m a very anxious patient and I left the office feeling at ease. eThe team was also very helpful in scheduling my next visits and answering any insurance questions I had. Highly recommend if your looking for a smart, caring, thorough doctor.

Let me describe my frustrating experience: This was first time I visited to Dr. Markogiannakis I came ONLY for evaluation regarding my broken tooth. Dr. Markogiannakis said that it is hopeless and referred me to another doctor which is fine. Although she spent on me less than 4 minutes, and no procedure was performed (she just looked into my mouth with her naked eye) but on my way out I was charged $100. I think this is not appropriate.
