He is by far the best I've every had! Pain free, funny, caring, and understanding!!
Shelbyville, KY |
I had an implant put in and they tried billing me for a gum graft said I need that and during the surgery one of the staff leaned over me and showed me her gum graft and convinced me to have the graft in front of my mouth. It was really bad pain, the roof of my mouth where they took the gum from hurt for half a year. I consulted another dentist asking for a crown and was told the implant was not placed properly and would not do the crown and said the graft should not have been done in front.

I think Dr. Cieslak AND his entire staff are awesome! They are all so friendly! I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Crestwood, KY |
I had extensive gum grafting done. Dr. and staff were friendly and pleasant, but procedure outcome was poor. My checkups during healing, Dr. said it looked good. Final check up over 50% of my grafts failed. I don't know how it looked good and then final checkup showed 50% failure. Dr. instructed staff to call me in 3 months to set up another check up (my schedule was hectic at the time), but never contacted by office again. Paid thousands out of pocket so office got what they needed.

Staff was very helpful in billing process and the doctor puts you at ease about the procedure.

Dr. Cieslak and his staff are absolutely wonderful. I have visited his office twice in the last two years. Both of my extractions were painless and he made sure I was comfortable during my visits. I highly recommend Dr. Cieslak for any dental surgery needs!
in Shepherdsville, KY |
My implants were almost painless. Super experience
in Ekron, KY |
Dr Cieslak and his staff took great care with my wisdom teeth removal. I was terrified to have the procedure done but was very well taking care of and also put at ease. I was very pleasantly surprised that I woke up with almost no pain and kept comfortable through my healing op process. I would highly recommend his office and will return in the future should I need any further dental surgeries. I thank them for all the care they gave me and the follow up phone calls to check in on my recovery .

Rec call from their billing department that i owed $25..and if no payment was made OVER phone they would send me to collection agency...THEY have wrong house # in THEIR computer..i have never received a bill nor have i repeatedly been advised that my outstanding bill ,that i have never received, is going to a collections agency!!! I was going back to have implants put in, but would rather spend my hard earned $ at a Office that admits their error and moves on!!
