High Quality
Staff were friendly, timely and competent. I am nervous at the dentist and staff were wonderful re: ensuring I was comfortable and relaxed.


Very kind and helpful
Dr. Karkalas and her associates were very friendly and knowledgeable. They informed me of my options without pressuring me to get any treatments I didn't want. I would definitely recommend Dr. Karkalas to those who are looking for a good dentist in the area.


High Quality
Quick, professional, punctual. Hadn't had trouble so far. Great staff.


Consistently great experience
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?


Exceptional service
Very positive experience. Dr Karkalas was extremely knowledgeable. Gave me great advice and information on maintaining my dental health.


The staff here is phenomenal. They remembered my 9 month old daughters name, and when she was born. My concerns were met with great professional attention. I couldn't ask for more.


As always, a delightful experience!
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.


Excellent quality care
I've always gotten excellent quality dental work done. Feels like family, I've been going to Lena Karkalas for years.


Always a great visit - I almost forget I am at the dentist office
Thank you for another great visit - our conversations are a lot of fun!


Painless Teeth Cleaning
The staff is talented, courteous and professional. I have been going to Dr. Karkalas for a number of year now. I have had an extensive amount of work done to repair substandard dentistry as well as deal with poor dental hygiene in my early years. I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I highly recommend.


Very professional
Appointment was easily scheduled, procedures for paperwork online were simple and convenient, and parking provided. My problem was solved quickly and professionally.


a pleasant experience at the dentist IS possible
the entire staff here are great--friendly, polite, helpful, & personable. Kelly did a fantastic job putting me at ease, thoroughly cleaned my teeth, and explained everything to me in a way that was highly detailed yet easy to understand, dare I say--fun. I actually enjoyed going to the dentists today.


Very good experience. Everyone was professional and friendly.
Dr. Karkalas provided a good assessment of my dental needs and presented a logical plan to address them.


Got me in and out quickly and were professional all the way through, answering questions thoroughly and giving helpful advice.

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.


Sensitive to my "pain points"
The women seemed to both be genuinely concerned about the pain and discomfort I was in. The cleaning was done with extra care and thoughtfulness since I was having trouble opening my mouth due to my tight jaw. We also had a few laughs, which helps the whole experience due to my complications!


Extremely high quality patient care
Dr. Karkalas and her team are amazing professionals! The patient always comes first in this office.


Amazing Staff, Amazing Service
My first visit was exactly what I was looking for in a dental office and could not have been happier. Now after my second visit they have found a way to once again surpass my expectations! Katie you are the best!!! Dr. Karkalas and staff - keep doing what you are doing!


Professional, caring.
Long time patient. Great environment, excellent service, caring and sensitive staff. Always satisfied. Dr. Karkalas and staff are wonderfull. Highly recommended


Very professional, knowledgeable, extremely helpful
I traveled from Massachusetts (42 minutes) to visit your practice based on a recommendation. It was well worth the trip! I'm happy to have become a new patient.


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.


High Quality service
Kind and patient centered approach service. All team members including Dr. Karkalas and dental hygienist (Kelly) were knowledgeable along with empathetic attitude towards their patients.


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.


Great Staff!
Professional and friendly. Every thing was explained well.


Helpful and informative service!


Quick response, excellent work
When 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.


Professional and courteous
Dr. Karkalas and her staff where amazing. They explained everything step by step and put my at ease with their knowledge and professionalism.


Friendly and professional! Awesome staff!
I normally fear the dentist, but they made me feel right at home! Highly recommend!

The best dentist with the best receptionists and the best hygienists. It's educational, clean, expert and you really LIKE everyone in the office.


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.


Professional, quality care

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!


Professional, cordial and highly efficient service
I 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.


Dr prompt scheduling appt for my urgent need. Friendly and professional and willing to take time to explain , teach, and listen to my concerns. Thank you.


Fantastic treatment
The 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.


Great service. Always punctual, informational and pleasant.
I highly recommend this dentist. She is always learning the latest science an techniques to keep her skills on the cutting edge!


First Visit
Amazing first visit. With such poor experiences with others in the past, it was a breath of fresh air to see such professionalism and genuine care.


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.


Excellent as always
Kelly did a great job cleaning our teeth-even with my 6yr old that has sensory issues. Dr Karkalas is knowledgeable and so personable that we would never go anywhere else.


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 !!


Excellent Care
I 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.
