I have been going to Dr. Jason Goldshlager for 20+ years, since I was a wee boy. I have had everything you can imagine done: implant, bonding, fillings, etc.... Everything has gone smooth and been comfortable. The hygienists are amazing, very kind and caring. I would have recommended sooner but I figured it was my best kept secret. I was there recently and it felt safe with all their Covid safety protocols.read more

Bayview Village Dental is like a warm hug. I always felt immediately at home when I visited, and extremely confident that my teeth were in good hands when I... was there. Many years ago, Dr. Uche Odiatu created a crown for my front tooth after it was damaged in a sports accident. Not only is it still in great shape, but I regularly get compliments from local dentists (now that I've moved out of town) about the incredible quality of his work. The best dentist!read more

Great dentists, difficult support staff. Five star dentists but 1 star staff since Valerie and Ann left. Hence the overall 3 star rating. Have to argue with... staff to get service. They are great at processing your bill, but wholly lacking interest in helping you work through problems with dental insurers.read more

I have been a patient for many years, and I highly enjoy coming back for my visits.Dr. Odiatu is absolutely incredible. He takes time and care of his... patients, ensuring they feel and look their best. I work in luxury fashion, and my smile is important to my confidence in my job. Dr. Odiatu takes great professional, and thorough care of my dental needs, and making an appointment to see him is something I genuinely look forward to. Dr.Odiatu puts me at ease when I fear of issues arising with any dental issues I may have, and assures me I can contact him with any questions I may have. A very personal touch, and greatly appreciated.read more

I had an emergency appointment because I lost a filling. Dr Odiatu filled as well as the tooth next to it. It was painless

When your dentists office is this good, you actually look forward to your appointment. Friendly staff, clean environment, following COVID protocols, always... makes me feel comfortable. I know I'm in great hands from receptionist (Marge), hygienist (Lillian with the most delicate hands), assistants and of course Dr.Boudakian who is so thorough. I know I'll be showing off my own pearly kinda-whites for a long time! Make sure you floss!Thank you Bayview Village Dental!read more

I have been going to see Janet for my dental hygiene/cleaning appointments for almost 20 years. My latest cleaning was today.I cannot express in a review how... impressed I am with the level of care and concern I receive regularly at Bayview Village Dental Associates. The staff all make you feel welcome and appreciated. Though I moved almost 2 years ago, I still happily make the 90-minute drive from my new home, twice a year, to visit Bayview. Though my dentist has recently retired, I am now connected with a new dentist and I expect to continue to make Bayview my dental care "home", at least as long as Janet is there. She is the best ! When you are due for a dental hygiene/cleaning appointment, ask to make a reservation with Janet. She is very well experienced, does an impeccable job and is the nicest person you will ever meet. I just love her !read more
