30/04/13 5 5 5 5 A very special thank you to Dr. Dorociak, Sandy, Mischa, and Amber. Yesterday was my first visit to your office and you all made me feel like I had been a longtime patient. Thank you so much for the friendly atmosphere and the wonderful service. It has been over six years since the last time I have been to a dentist, and after meeting Dr. Dorociak and his staff this morning I know It will not be another six years before I get my teeth cleaned again.  Respond

06/03/13 5 5 5 5 5 stars) No dental work required! I was certain that my teeth were falling out of my head. It felt as though they were being ripped out with a hot rusty knife. I brush and floss regularly, but the pain was so convincing. I have since been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia, and have read countless testimonies of people who had needless root canals, and extractions that suffer from this disorder. My dentist and his staff was very thorough and assured me that my teeth and gums were fine, and redirected me in the right direction to receive proper treatment. What a blessing to have such trustworthy people in my corner. A million thanks!  Respond

22/01/13 5 5 5 5 Fantastic! This was my first visit but it will not be my last. I met Lori (the hygienist) for my routine 6 month cleaning she made me fill very welcome and relaxed. I have had lots of dental work in the past plus 2 of my daughters are hygienists so I feel somewhat of an expert in the dental field. I have found my newest and best dentist and staff in Sarasota FL and will happily refer his office with great confidence.  Respond

23/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Dorociak is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind dentist. I am a long-term patient of Dr. Dorociak's, and since day one I have been impressed. The front desk staff greet me by name and are very friendly. In the dental chair, Dr. Dorociak speaks to me directly and thoroughly explains treatment options. With sincerity, Dr. Dorociak tells me exactly what he would do in his own mouth, not looking to perform the most profitable procedure but rather the most sensible one. I highly recommend Dr. Dorociak to anyone in the greater Sarasota area who is looking for a life-long dentist.

16/01/12 3 1 2 3 I went to dorociak for a bite alignment issue and he recommended i have a new retainer made. My issue was a simple and minor fix and he offered an expensive and unnecessary one, basically a crutch. I went back a second time so he could evaluate my existing retainer and tell me what the cost of a new one would be, and stood me up for an hour. No thanks, dentists are a dime a dozen and a wall of accolades doesnt give anyone the right to jerk their customers around.

14/10/11 5 4 5 5 He is awesome!! My husband has been a patient with Dr. Dorociak since he was a kid. My husband went in for a cleaning shortly after my mother-in-law died and when the doc found out about the death, he gave my husband a book that he thought would help him cope. Great doctor!! Wonderful man!!

22/08/09 5 5 5 5 I had to have a root canal and a coworker suggested Dr. Dorociak. There was no pain, even the injections were not felt. Dr. Dorociak and his nurse Kris were extremely understanding, helpful and made me feel totally at ease. As I said there was no pain, the pain afterward was just minor and normal for having any type of invasive surgery. I wasn’t at my best the next day, but it wasn’t like I had to call in sick, nor was it like the horror stories that I had heard.  Respond

11/01/09 5 4 5 5 I had a broken molar and I walked into the dentat office at 4:30 and told the staff what happened. The D. Mike saw me immediately and numbed my tooth. I waited until 6:00, since I had no appointment, the office was busy (office closes at 5:00). Dr. Mike stayed and worked on my tooth till 7:30, the staff had gone home. I still have my tooth 14 years later. I have never had a tooth fail after the he worked on it. I now live in Portland, OR. If you want good teeth, be prepared to wait, time is easier to find than a good dentist.  Respond

12/12/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Dorociak is extremely professional and accomodating. He doesn't overcharge, he is very knowledgable, and you can tell his staff respects and appreciates him. My father was suffering from extreme halitosis and after going to 3 specialists to no avail, he asked Dr. Dorociak for his advise during a routine checkup and was given a free tongue scraper and has never had a problem since. Also, every December, Dr. Dorociak's office hosts an all-day free treatment event so that families who can't afford dentistry won't have to spend the holidays with a tooth ache. The doors don't close until everyone is taken care of! I think that says it all :)  Respond

19/06/08 5 5 1 3 He was great for cleanings and such, however, once I needed a root canal (I have TMJ) I had nothing but trouble. The pain was unbearable, and he complicated it by pushing so hard on my jaw that I was actually unable to open my mouth at all. He would just pry it open and continue with his work regardless of what was happening to my jaw. Very cookie cutter treatment. There were no allowances made for my condition and this created huge problems for me after the perm. crown went in. I had lockdowns with my jaw for abt. 4 mos. after his treatment.  See Responses
