Dr Kershman and his wonderful team have over 30 years have changed my life for the better through restorative work and maintenance. He has taken me caringly, gently and skillfully through extensive periodontics, adult orthodontics, oral hygiene, maxillofacial surgery. He has always been available when emergencies arise. I am lucky to have met him and consider him a good friend. Anyone looking for an oral superman must consider Dr. John I Kershman and his team. I have been a patient for 30 years and give him the highest possible rating.

Dr. Kershman save my child from having to undergo unnecessary surgery. After a junior dentist at another clinic made a poor diagnosis, we went to see Dr. Kershman for a second opinion. He took us very quickly and was very swift in coming to a conclusion. Dr. Kershman then called the surgeon and explained why it was not necessary and had it cancelled. In my opinion, Dr. Kershman exhibits everything that we expect from a specialist: efficiency and competence (and the reputation that makes other doctors listen). Sir, you have my deepest thanks!

Awful place. Front desk service is so-so. this office never gave me reminder calls. But when I sit in the reception area, I hear the receptionist make calls like. The hygienists are cold and don't speak. As for this Dr. Kershman? Cold. Rude. When asked for information, he answers like I should know, and often feel like my questions are a waste of his time. So I don't ask anymore, i just pray he offers information. he doesn't even communicate with my child. I do not recommend this place of business!

Mr. Kershman is a rude and stiff .He feels hard to explain the rationale for his treatment suggestions. He is less than average skills. We had a terrible experience with him. We strongly will not recommend him to anyone.

Dr.Kershman was able to restore my smile. I had a severe case of crooked teeth that took 3 years to correct. I now have a perfect smile and have been getting many compliments and feel most confident with my smile. No doubt in my mind that Dr Kershman is the best orthodontist around. Very knowledgeable and dedicated to his craft. Only negatives is that you may be waiting for a while for a simple checkup or to see the doctor, it gets very busy, the clinic is outdated, old and due for new renovations. One of the receptionists at the front is very rude...it seems to be that she hates her job which is unfortunate because it reflects onto the clients who do not need that negative energy everytime they are in the clinic. Staff on other hand is great, special thanks to Lena and Sophia.

I had searched for a longtime for an orthodontist that can make my teeth look the way I wanted. Finally I met Dr. Kershman, he is an excellent orthodontist who fixed my teeth like no other doctors could, he is very professional, with skills and knowledge to transform my teeth to perfect. His expertise was above and beyond my expectation, with the greatest technology and also he has a wonderful pleasant staff.
