The hygienists are very nice, but the Dr. is extremely impatient and rough with children and seems to be more concerned about rushing through the appointment than whether or not the child is getting through what is usually a very tough experience. I would not recommend this Dentist for children.

Horrible service!!!! Do not take your kids there, the staff (Mojgan Bral) and (Mona Khalighi) needless to say are very unprofessional and courteous only when you do what they ask you to do to your kid. My experience with this facility was very bad since the only option given to me was to completely sedate my daughter, I felt nervous and full of doubt that I decided to cancel the appointment. The facility charge me for the procedure and Mona told me that I wouldn't be getting refunded simply because I decided to cancel my appointment on the same day of procedure which is untrue. I Luckily I had a voice-mail from her saved in my cell phone to prove that she had actually called me the day before to find out on the reasons behind my cancellation, but she told me it didn't matter. Never again will I take my kid there, she has Dr. Dove now which is GREAT!!!!. I wish them well and hopefully they can use the money they took from a single mother to take a training in Customer Service.

I brought my child in yesterday with my sisters kids and this dr is wonderful. My child is autistic and he can't have any work done unless he goes under anthesia, they provide that in office. The care is fantastic here , your dealing with the best of all dentists!

I am not sure what everyone is talking about, I like this doctor, he was gentle with both my sons. I had another dentist tell me my son had 3 cavaties Dr. Kirshbaum reviewed the X rays with me and showed me the other guy was a total scam. The staff has gone above and beyond keeping my kids with them even though my insurance was no longer excepted, and I can tell they dont tell me lies about my kids teeth just to make a buck!

very unprofessional the staff called two days before scheduled appt and then again the day before to confirm my appt. when i show up the all the staff didnt show up until 20 minutes after scheduled time. not to mention they didnt even bother to apologize. During the whole procedure I could hear loud laughter while my daughter was in the back getting treatment. Then while Im waiting for my daughter to come out of anesthesia everybody was laughing and sharing comical web pages instead of monitoring my daughter who was still unconscious.

I can't believe this guy is still in business. I though he would've been shut down by now. He extracted 4 teeth from my daughter without my permission, and didn't allow me to go the back during a check up. Shoud've sued! He's lucky I didn't!
