Lena D. Karkalas, D.D.S.

(195) Cosmetic Dentistry
I've tried a few dentist office's looking for the "perfect" one as my childhood dentist office had closed and I would definitely say this one is the most personable and friendly of all of them! It always feels like they genuinely want to understand you as a patient and are willing to talk about procedures pros and cons so you can make good decisions about your dental health. They make a "health chore" (as I like to call it) less of one. I highly recommend this dentist office!
More
I always get a proficient cleaning, with no discomfort, and as a result, I haven't had any cavities in years.
More
The best dentist in North America, and possibly the world! Very efficient, professional and awesome!!!
More
Professional, warm and friendly, straight-forward advice for every day dental health, easy to stay on a schedule. Highly recommend.
More
Dr. Karkalas is the 2nd or 3rd dentist we've seen in the Providence area, and by far the best! The staff is friendly and professional, they do great work, and you're not stuck waiting for an appointment.
More
Dr. Karkalas and her team are top notch. Great dental care, always on schedule, and easy to communicate with when needed.
More
I have been seeing Dr Karkalas for over 10 years now and as much as I'd rather not go to the dentist, I always have such a positive experience!  She does beautiful work and has a top notch team!! I highly recommend Dr  K for anyone looking for a new dentist!
More
Things have changed quite a bit since COVID-19, but Dr. Karkalas' office and staff took everything seriously, putting the health and safety of others and themselves first. They take the necessary precautions while making you feel comfortable and at ease. My family switched to this office after living in RI for a few years and we are so glad we did. I have had several crowns and cavities over the years (fun, fun) and recently broke a tooth resulting in another crown. I have never had such an easy, painless, and quick experience as I did in Dr. K's office. The crown match was impeccable. I am not a fan of going to the dentist and dread it, but from the insightful conversations with the hygienist to the kind and caring office staff and dental assistant, you are made to feel at home and welcome. I can truly say, for the first time in my life, I don't think I will mind returning for my next check-up. Thank you to everyone!
More
Staff are very pleasant, Doctor is wonderful best dentist I’ve ever been too. Definitely will recommend.
More
Professional, Friendly I was able to get an appointment quickly and they got to the root of my problem in a timely, friendly and professional manner.
More
I found this office after not having gone to the dentist in years. I was truly blown away with the amount of knowledge I learned during my first cleaning with their hygienist, Kelly. I am beyond grateful to have found a dentist I can trust and a team of educated professionals who could thoroughly answer all of my questions. After finding out I need additional work done, their staff patiently walked me through billing questions. I feel really confident about my treatment plan moving forward. I highly recommend going here!
More
Awesome as always!As usual, everything went great with my cleaning today! Started right on time and got some great feedback on a problem tooth that I have. 
More
Professional, quality care Dr.Karkalas & her office have been taking care of my dental needs for several years. Like extended family now. I always know I will get state of the art care in all procedures. 
More
High quality service, great staff.I highly recommend this dentist, great staff, and Lena is precise and has a great personality! I love the early hours I can make for appointments! 
More
Fantastic treatmentThe staff at the office were able to get me in quickly due to a chipped, ragged tooth, and Dr. Karkalas was able to treat me with a much less extensive and costly procedure than I'd been anticipating. She's the best -- talented, caring, and honest. 
More
Great Staff!Professional and friendly. Everything was explained well.  
More
Professional, cordial and highly efficient serviceI am a longtime patient of Dr. KARKALAS. I have been so, because I have always received caring, concerned, and trusted professional service. In addition, I always feel that Dr. K is always very knowledgeable regarding the latest techniques and services in dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry and that is very important to me. 
More

More
My experience is always top notch. Everyone in the office is very professional and I know going there that they are looking out for my best interests. 
More
I had a great experience here. I had an old cap/crown pop off unexpectedly at work, and I called them freaking out -- having never been a patient of theirs. They saw me within the hour and got me all put back together calmly and competently.  They gave me some recommendations on other services, but I didn't feel pressured at all -- I left with a packet of info to follow up on at my own pace/if I wanted to.
More
Professional and courteousDr. Karkalas and her staff where amazing. They explained everything step by step and put my at ease with their knowledge and professionalism.
More
 Easy to book appointments and rescheduling whenever needed. I've been a patient here for the past 9 years and I have always been satisfied. 
More
Excellent care, professional friendly staff.I have been getting dental care here for over 12 years. Dr Karkalas has taken care of my dental issues with attention to every detail and always made me comfortable. Everyone is always kind and attentive. Thanks so much !! 
More
I did a cleaning and got a mouthguard here. Both of my experiences have been wonderful. For my cleaning,  my hygienist gave me a lot of fun facts while she cleaned my teeth, keeping it from being boring. For my mouthguard, it didn't fit the first time but it was redone and gotten back to me in little time!
More
I’m glad to have found such a great dentist! The hygienist taught me so much during my appointment and explained everything she was doing. I feel much better informed about dental health and my teeth, and will be coming back here in the future.
More
I normally fear the dentist! I walked into their nice cozy office and was greeted right away with a warm welcome. Staff is very friendly and very professional at the same time. I was instantly comfortable there and I highly recommend them to anyone!
More
Quick response, excellent workWhen I had a sudden problem-- a veneer popped while I was eating lunch-- David was able to hustle me into the office and Lena was able to slip me into the schedule so that before I had to teach my class, hours after I lost the veneer, my problem was solved and I could speak before a class without looking like a horse had kicked me in the teeth. Thanks once again. 
More
Where you want to go!The best dentist with the best receptionists and the best hygienists. It's educational, clean, expert and you really LIKE everyone in the office.

Today's appointment was an emergency one, and I am having my wisdom teeth extracted on Thursday. I arrived at noon, in excruciating pain, and was seen right away. Dave at the front desk recognized my agonizing discomfort and went to extraordinary lengths to coordinate my extractions as soon as possible. Dr. Karkalas and Paula made me feel comfortable as they took new xrays and confirmed my diagnosis. Dr. Karkalas developed a solid care plan for me, and I am following it to the letter. I also took comfort in the genuine care and concern everyone showed me. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Karkalas and her practice.

Perfect appointment Professional, friendly, competent and on time. What more could you ask for? 
More
Great staff, felt very comfortable, they make you feel at home. I would highly recommend Dr Karkalas.
More
I don't recommend Dr. Karkalas. I found her to always be unfriendly towards me and would leave the room at the end of a procedure without saying anything. Her bonding didn't come close to matching and in response I was scolded for not whitening. Her recommendation was to get a crown for a tooth that just needed the correct shade of bonding. She recommended a crown on another tooth that my insurance didn't agree needed it based on the xrays. The only good experience was with Kelly the dental hygienist and Paula the dental assistant.
More
Excellent CareI have been a patient of Dr. Karkalas for many years, and I always receive caring and appropriate attention to my needs, whether it is a regular cleaning or an emergency re-cementing of a crown. 
More
High Quality Quick, professional, punctual. Hadn't had trouble so far. Great staff.
More
I was glad to be done so quick, however, I am still very numb after almost 3 hours. I was told it should go away in two hours. I am at work and can hardly speak clearly. I appreciated the advil, that was a nice touch. 
More
Very positive experience. Dr Karkalas was extremely knowledgeable. Gave me great advice and information on maintaining my dental health.

I cleaned my teeth today and the hygiene specialist was so good. Dr. Lena is good and staffs are kind.

Typically, few people describe their dental visits in glowing terms. Perhaps that’s because they don’t see Dr. Karkalas. Dr. Karkalas and every member of her staff is professional, extremely competent, personable, and always a pleasure to deal with. In addition, they are all preternaturally gifted at explaining the complex and technical aspects of treatment, procedures, equipment, and general care.

This is my second time have Botox injections with Dr. Karkalas.  She is superb!  No bruising, bleeding or swelling.  She is very attentive to needs of her patients and does exactly what she says she is going to do.  She is extremely trustworthy and I don't feel like I am being "upsold" in any way.  She is a cosmetic genius.

I love having friends guess which of my teeth are 'fake'--- they are always surprised because of the incredible quality of the veneers. Whether its cosmetic work, a filling, or cleaning, Dr. Karkalas and her team provide impeccable service. Once I made the mistake of eating hard crusty bread and chipped a tooth on a Saturday; Lena took my call, and met to fix the issue that day. Dave always accommodates and is a pleasure to speak with.  Clean and cutting edge.

A crown on my molar fell off while I was eating, and I was able to contact Dr. Karkalas at her emergency number. She saw me the next working day and re-cemented the crown without any problem. It was great to have my dental issue solved so quickly and easily!
More
Dr. Karkalas had no issues with giving me time just to meet her. I think I found a new dentist, and will be very happy! Office is warm and welcoming, and her staff is wonderful.
More
Excellent job by Kelly. You folks are very professional at your work and I am glad to be your patient.
More
Everything was Great
More
I learned more about how to brush my teeth during the cleaning than I ever have before.    Dr. Karkalas is friendly and is not pushy about cosmetic procedures.  Everyone in the office is welcoming and organized.  
More
So punctual which is very refreshing! Hygienist was very nice and very pleasant! Heated neck pillow, cooling eye wrap and massaging chair make for a pleasant experience, especially for a dentist!
More
I always come out of there feeling good.
More
I typically do not like going to the dentist at all... But my most recent cleaning with Dr. Karkalas was exceptional.
More
I do not like the dentist but my experience here has been very positive!

Always a friendly place and great attention to what needs to be done
More
I finally decided to get ZOOM whitening after debating for a couple years - I have sensitive teeth & was very worried about the possible pain, etc. The staff were all very considerate of my feelings and made sure I was comfortable at all times. The procedure itself turned out to be painless, and dare I say almost relaxing (!) Am very glad I did this, and very much trusted the expertise of Lena and her staff in delivering a quality experience. Linda Loy Whitman
More
It was the first dental clinic since we moved to Providence.The first impression of their atmosphere was calm, comfortable, and friendly.They treated us very gentle and personally. And they made an appoinment and managed that very seriously so that we did not need to wait to see a doctor. We only waited for about 5minutes discussing about our dental insurance and the process of treatment, which was niccessary.Dr. Karkalas gave me a good and professional treatmet and explained what she did for me very kindly.Furthermore, the clinic is very close to Brown University where my husband is working so we can reach there easily.
More
Dr Karkalas was so good with my 5 yr old son-I was so impressed!! He can be tough but she was able to keep him calm and explain what she was going to do step by step while filing a cavity. The silly terms she used really made him listen and relax a little.
More
I would recommend Lana's practice to anyone
More
As a knew patient I was so glad they could see me on short notice. So friendly and helpful with my issue. Thank you...
More
I've been with Dr. Karkalas since 2009 and I never had any problems getting schedules and having my dental procedures done. Office is very nice and clean.
More
Very professional, positive experience.
More
excellent hygenist
More
I am not a fan of the dentist but Dr. Karkalas put me at ease and got the work done fast and pain-free.
More
Today was just a cleaning. However, I got to meet my new hygienist! It was like I had always known her. She is pleasant and explains her concerns with care. Thank you for a pleasant experience
More
When I was little, I went to another dentist and they made me scared to go. So my mom brought me to Dr. Karkalas. Today I love the dentist. (I am 9 years old.) Dave is very nice to me. He showed me how to do yo-yo tricks with the yo-yo I got from the treasure box.
More
Okay, love may be a bit strong here. Yet, if it is possible to enjoy a dental experience, this would be the place to do so. Plenty of TLC and professionalism. Love you guys!
More
First time with new hygienist and the work was wonderful. This was the best cleaning I've ever had
More
It had been a while since I had been to a dentist, and I have never liked going to the dentist, so I was a little nervous. But everyone was so nice and not at all judgmental that I'd fallen behind in my dental care. I really appreciated it!
More
Dr Karkalas has been wonderful helping me keep a healthy smile. The office is friendly and professional.
More
Another excellent visit. I overslept and missed my original appointment. When I called to explain, they fit me in early the following week. I should have paid a $25 dollar fee for missing my appointment, but when I asked about it the response was, "That's your freebie," followed by an awesome smile. I was grateful. The young woman in the waiting room had her little brother in tow. The front desk manager (whose name is escaping me) started asking her questions about her family, saying that she had grown so much. "I'm in college now," the woman boasted. The front desk manager got up, grabbed a teddy bear and gave it to the boy. I smiled at the thought that families have been going to that dentist's office for a long time. I'm a relatively new patient. Every member of the team greeted me with a smile and a question about my morning or about my work. I felt extremely comfortable getting in the chair- something that caused me tremendous anxiety at every other dentist's office before Dr. Karkalas's office. The only suggestion I would make is to add the names of the office manager, assistants and dental hygienists either on the Google contact or Facebook. I would have liked to refer to them by name in this review, but I had no luck finding their names.
More
Dr. Karkalas was very prompt, kind, and informative!
More
nifty!
More
My son had two of his front teeth replaced by Dr. Karkalas after an accident a little over a year ago. Yesterday, one of the new teeth was broken during a wrestling match. I called the emergency line, and Dr. Karkalas and her technician came in on their day off to fix the problem. Her level of expertise is amazing. Her commitment to customer service is impeccable. This rare combination earns my highest recommendation. You cannot do better.
More
Dr. Karkalas was able to make some cosmetic changes to an existing bridge that I had wanted to do for a long time. The result was great! Thank you!
More
Okay, Dr. Karkalas is dazzling, true. And she and Dave, when they aren't in dentist garb, look like they should be stepping out on a red carpet in front of cameras. But her knowledge base is deep and expanding as she takes on forensic dentistry and comes to testify in criminal cases around the country. If you're not a criminal prone to biting your victims, you've got nothing to fear: with ordinary people like you and me, she's focused like a laser, amiable, and terrifically skilled. She makes it all seem casual. Even other dentists, looking in my mouth at her work, expressed admiration. If you can get an appointment, you'll have no regrets.
More
Everything you expect, professional, courteous, down to earth/friendly, immaculately clean, knowledgeable and they take you on time. They thoroughly explain everything you need to know from a simple teeth cleaning to dental extractions. And they have a parking lot :)
More
I went in for a cleaning. Everyone was friendly and professional. Check in was easy and the cleaning was done well. Various questions were asked when necessary. The waiting area and exam room were neat.
More
I was looking forward to my first visit here, but the morning of my appointment I ran into hellacious traffic on the east side, a perfect storm of commuters, heavy work trucks, tree work trucks, school buses, a corner fender bender, oblivious people on phones, closed streets, half-closed street detours, and of course, one-way streets. I didn't want to call while driving but Laurie called me and I assured her I was trying to get there. I finally made it, very late, wondering if I could still be seen. Luckily the patient after me was delayed, so I received a gracious welcome and still had my initial exam. Dr. Karkalas answered all my questions. Seemed top-notch. I left in a much better frame of mind - something you rarely say after a dental visit.
More
Thanks for accommodating my early morning scheduling needs!
More
Dr. Karkalas is a fabulous dentist. I have been a patient for over 15 years and she is truly in a class of her own. She provides a relaxed atmosphere and handles her dental instruments like an artist handles a paintbrush. She is quick, confident and extremely gifted in her field.
More
The practice has a very warm and welcoming feeling from the minute you walk in. Thorough and professional. They really pay attention to the patients needs and any health problems past and future.
More
My first and only dentist since I moved to Providence. It was just what I was looking for: Top quality technical and personal service (altho I wish there were later afternoon hours!) Very happy here and also love that the location is near my house on the East Side. Loy Whitman
More
Dr. Karkalas agreed to see me at the last minute (despite already being double booked) because I chipped my front tooth. I was fixed (with my smile back) in 20 minutes! :-)
More
Dr Karkalas is great dentist. Lena and her staff are very professional and very efficient at what they do. Very friendly and courteous. I would be happy to recommend Dr. Karkalas!

I have found this dentist to be very proficient. She knows her craft well and works with ease. She explains procedures well and informs along the way. I recently had 2 old fillings redone. I was in and out quickly and painlessly. She did a great job. I would highly recommend this dentist. She is top notch and makes the visit easy. Office is very clean and staff are very friendly.

It's an experience I seldom look forward to. After all who wants someone else's fingers in your mouth for any length of time. The Doctor was very professional, knowledgeable and explained everything she was doing. Her team was also helpful and considerate. I would definitely refer her to anyone.

Thanks to Lena for getting me in quickly to save an old crown! As always it was nice to visit with both Lena and Dave and catch up on happenings since I have been a most satisfied patient since 2000! It was worth the trip to Providence in more ways than one on this snowy January morning!!!

Dr Karkalas very quickly responded to a last minute appointment request to repair a veneer. She was able to see me the next morning. I was in and out of the office in 15 to 20 minutes, good as new! Dr Karkalas and her staff are always professional, personable and efficient. The best dentist I've ever had!

First rate dental care  and customer service. Will they offer you the latest in ways to up your dental presentation? Yes.  Are they the least expensive provider around? No. Do you get what you pay for? Yes. They are attentive, proactive, and pay way more attention to my mouth than I would ever think to.  Dave has a great reminder system, is flexible and easy to work with about making appointments, and will work with you on paying for big ticket procedures.  Dr K. and her staff are very thorough,  friendly, and professional.  I have moved a few times in the past ten years, and always travel back to see these guys. Lena and Dave make the dentist experience as good as one could hope it would be.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how detail oriented Dr. Karkalas is. My initial exam was very thorough and the crown work done was excellent.
