Patient Testimonials

I have always been uneasy about going to the dentist. Dr. Dines and Dr. Garcia-Rivera put me at ease. There was no long waiting, and Dr. Garcia-Rivera was generous and kind with his time, explaining thoroughly about the procedure to be performed. I suffered no undue pain, and the implant was performed without much discomfort. He also performed extractions which were accomplished before I realized they were completed. I was totally satisfied with his service. ? Dorothy J. Geno, Watertown

My experience with the doctor and his staff was excellent, my tooth was broken off and Dr. Dines got it out in three minutes with ease and no pain. He and his staff work together wonderfully and made me feel as comfortable as they could while sitting in that chair. I didn't even have time to pick up a magazine and read it, thats how quick they got me in which was great as I had no time to wait and worry. GREAT JOB

Very very rude and almost threatening demeanor... Left his office feeling very unsafe and decided not to go through with the procedure until I could find a more trustworthy provider
Watertown, NY |
My son is in his 30's and during his first visit for extractions everything went well,BUT the second visit he had sinus drainage and Dines wouldn't work on him.Dines offered getting all the extractions done in an OR setting so he agreed.While going under anesthesia my son had a serious reaction to the medicine and it scared everyone so we decided to go back to extractions in office.He showed pain due to an abscess and Dines dropped him! NOT impressed! BEWARE!
