Great atmosphere!!
My family and I have been coming here for 10 years and would never go anywhere else. Dr.Salman is great and never reccomends any unnecessary work like some of the past dentists ive been too. Grabavoy helped me get out of my TMJ pain. Sue the hygentist is very gental and thorough. The assistants are amazing and the front desk always has everything in order. Great place!!

Unprofessional doctor caused tremendous harm
I never write reviews but I would like to save someone else the financial emotional and physical costs of seeing Dr Grabavoy for TMJ treatment. I followed his treatment every step of the way (besides applying a sticky unregulated cream that he wanted me to put on my face 4x/day). My jaw, neck, tmj related ear pain and facial pain have all gotten far worse since I spent over $7000 to see him. His treatment starts with a big sell with three people in the room - one of whom is just the admin assistant- and he reviews an MRI in the most confusing way possible. He often talks over you to his assistants in order to communicate what he wants to tell you. E.g. "She isn't using the cream. No surprise she isn't getting better." When I signed on for treatment many things were not made clear up front. I thought I was there for splint therapy--to get at the root issue. His use of a cream from an unregulated pharmacy seems like a band aid approach. I can take Advil for that (he claims the cream has a muscle relaxing component but I was already on prescribed muscle relaxants for the pain so I didn't want to take more of the same...if it was the same). I went every single month for a year and a half never missing an appointment and wearing the splint exactly as ordered. He claims I am the 1% of his patients who don't benefit from treatment. I've asked him for further recommendations since I'm far worse than when I began. He has none. The last appointment is what finally tipped the scale and got me to write this. Dr Grabavoy raised his voice quite loudly and said "I am so sick of having the same discussion with you" and literally slammed the door on me. I've never witnessed anything so unprofessional in my life and I was actually afraid of that man. His admin said "don't take it personally he's treating all of us that way today." That makes it even worse! No surprise though that he is as emotionally abusive to his staff as to his patients. Please save yourself a lot of pain- physically and emotionally- and do not trust this guy with your health or money.

THE place to go.
I am continually delighted at the kindness and gentleness of the staff. This has to reflect Dr Grabavoy's patient care philosophy. This has been contagious with the entire staff. Both dentists - Alex and Natalie - are fine dentists, up to date, accurate, and with the aforementioned kindness and gentleness.

I was told my new crown project would cost over $1,700. That is very HIGH. I might do some online comparisons.

Good staff--beautiful offices
Although I did not receive good news re: my dental health, Dr. Grabevoy and his associates were professional and compassionate. The full xray was comfortable compared to others I have experienced. The office from Rt. 52 does not do justice to the beautiful offices. Could use some curb appeal.
