29/07/12 4 5 5 5 Do not expect a fancy office. Dr. Grace is a caring dentist who puts his patients at ease. He is appropriately conservative and is not about over selling you dental work, which I appreciate. I had a dental emergency on a Sunday and he called me within 10 minutes to make sure that I was not in pain. I have recommended him to my colleagues, who also believe that Dr. Grace is a top notch dentist. I would recommend him to anyone.  Respond

08/04/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Grace is unusual in that he genuinely cares for his patients and lets you know upfront about what should be done and the costs involved. And he has a sense of humor. I used to dread going to the dentist, but there is no fear of the unknown when you have Dr. Grace for your dentist as he explains everything that is involved. He's A-1 in my book.  Respond

14/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Grace was on time and his staff was very friendly. My office co-workers all recommended him and they were right. He spent time before he treated me explaining what was to be done. I'll definitely refer others.

17/08/08 2 4 1 1 One of the worst dentist I have been to. He seems to be more interested in reimbursement from insurance company than patient's care and comfort. I asked him to give me more novacaine and he continued with procedure without listening to me. I want to know what is up with him taking off his gloves, and placing them on the counter, and reusing them. Is that really hygenic?

04/11/07 5 5 5 5 This was my first visit to the dentist. The staff was friendly. The doctor was very knowledgeable. He explained what he was doing and why it is important to floss. The doctor cleaned my teeth not a hyginist so I felt like my teeth were super clean. I will definitely go back and would highly recommend him to friends.

21/09/06 5 2 3 Well, the doctor is very nice, but I had trouble with him not following up on things with my insurance company. I needed to get a filling replaced and he was going to price it out before we did it. He never did..and I still haven't gotten my filling replaced. I'm going to anothter dentist.  Respond

30/11/05 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Grace for a routine cleaning. His staff was very friendly and he took me back right on time. He chatted the whole time he cleaned, sort of a mini-lecture on teeth, which helped to distract from any discomfort. He did not attempt to ask me questions while working in my mouth. He's very knowledgeable, though more on the "thorough" rather than "gentle" end of the cleaning spectrum.  Respond
