I brought my five year old here for a routine cleaning. We were new patients of the office. All I can say, is I will definitely NEVER bring my child back to this office again. The woman that worked behind the front desk was beyond rude and disrespectful. From the second we walked in the door until the moment we left, we were not greeted nor made to feel welcomed into the practice. My appt was scheduled for 2:00, but I was told with an eye roll and an attitude that it was for 11:30 and I had missed my appt. (meanwhile I never would have made an appt at that time because I wouldn’t have had a sitter for my other child at home). In addition, Dr. Melinski had absolutely no chair side manor with my son, who already had a fear coming into the dentist. It seemed as though he was more bothered by my child’s crying and fear, rather then feeling empathy as a pediatric dentist should. The one positive thing about this office was the lovely, kind, and patient hygienist; who took the time to talk to and explain things to me and my son. Maybe Dr. Melinski should take lessons from his hygienist on how to treat his patients. Upon leaving the office, I was very rudely dismissed when I simply asked a question by the same woman that worked at the front desk and gave me attitude when I came in. This is the first time I’ve ever written a review, however after this experience I felt very strongly about letting my voice be heard. Looks like it’s time to find another dentist!!!

Friendly and professional
Dr. John is the only dentist my son has had and we are pleased with his service. He has given my son the attitude that the dentist is not to be dreaded and my son can be an anxious person! We have total confidence in his work and his abilities..our son is going to need braces soon and we trust Dr. Johns recommendation for his future orthodontic work!

Professional and caring staff
We have been using Dr Melinski for many years. We came from another pediatric dental practice on the North Shore where we live. When Dr Melinski first saw my son for a second opinion thankfully he told us that it was not a tumor my son had on his gum, but a tiny fragment of a baby tooth. He removed it quickly and also filled a cavity. We had been to the other practice a week before where I was told that my son had no cavities. I have taken my 3 children to Dr Melinski ever since. He is extremely knowledgeable, and has a great demeanor. Especially good with children who are anxious or have special needs. His staff is great!
