Dr. Zina and her staff are amazing. I felt very informed about the procedure before hand. They even gave me tips to heal and recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Overall, a great experience and very happy I chose this practice for my wisdom teeth removal.

It was wonderful being able to remove my teeth and get my new set on the same day. I didn’t have to go to work with no teeth. The staff was wonderful and told me what to expect every step of the way. The staff was awesome very accommodating, they made sure that I was comfortable.

Dr. Zina made me feel so comfortable that I now bring my entire family to see her. She is friendly and sweet and has a very welcoming personality. She has a very calm persona and makes you feel very comfortable. My 9 year old now looks forward to going to the dentist. Thank you Dr Gotlieb for the wonderful care you took with my family and I.

This office is wonderful- very clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. Dr. Zina Gotlieb is so nice and personable, and she spent more time counseling and answering questions than I have experienced at any other dental office. And she did not try to push any unnecessary treatments. I highly recommend this practice!
