Great Dentistry
Everyone remembered my name and was very personable. Their xray equipment was safe and quick. The hygienist Pragna, and Dr. Treinkman were very nice and professional and answered all my concerns.

Highest level of professionalism by staff; latest and best tech; Doctors Trenkman and Kowalczyk are as good as I’ve ever encountered, irrespective of specialty.

Saw Dr. Kowalczyk today. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Dr. Kowalczyk was very polite . He took time to explain all options and allowed time for me to make decision. Have seen Dr. McShane and Dr. Treinkman in past. They, too, are very caring, respectful.

Terrible visit. I’ve see. This dentist for years and now I won’t ever go back went for a cavity to be filled and a crown. Got there and he wanted to do two crowns. It was the worst experience I have ever had at a dentist. I felt like I was chocking. He didn’t listen. He blamed me. It took FOUR HOURS - three of which was his grinding in my mouth. In hindsight, he should have done a filling and I shouldn’t have let him do a cap. I am done with that practice. The office staff are sweet but you can tell he rules with an iron fist. I’ve never had such a bad dental visit - or any healthcare providers. When I say it was bad, it doesn’t begin to describe it. I am done with him. Never again.

Dr. Treinkman is a complete HACKI made an appointment to address my dentures. I have about 3-4 very tender spots that the lower denture is rubbing on. I had a 10:15 appointment; finally, the dentist came in at 11:30. He made a minor adjustment to the upper denture. Put the lower denture in, said, "I don't like this." Asked, "have you thought about implants?" Then (without getting an answer) started speaking directly to the assistant. Dr. Treinkman never addressed me directly after adjusting the upper denture. Did not discuss with me any treatment plan nor any suggestions for follow-up on what I could do. He didn't adjust the lower denture and left the room. The assistant then tells me they "can do a total new reline of the lower denture, but that will be over $800". I expressed I couldn't afford $800 (I have been unemployed due to Covid-19). I walked out in severe pain with no relief, and they charged me $130 for a 10-minute appointment. AVOID THIS DENTAL PRACTICE!
