They were very patient and kind with my son.
Daniel J.
I’m sitting here for the 2nd time this month, my son is getting some cavities filled and Dr. Mila is singing and he is giggling hysterically, trying not to move! I’m so happy we came here and so very satisfied with our experience and the staff here. I’ve never had such an awesome experience with a dentist before, Dr. Mila and her dental assistants (Mrs. Wendy !) are absolutely fantastic. My little boy is now excited to brush and floss every day as well as come visit the dentist ! Thank you Family Dental!
Nira R.
Dr. Leo checked my x-rays and showed me that I needed a cavity filled and the crown replaced. She expertly and painlessly took care of everything while making me feel comfortable and special. Liliane, her assistant was also very helpful in making me feel comfortable throughout the procedures. The Family Dental Group has taken care of myself and my wife well over a dozen years and they have helped us with any questions we had and always with a smile. We are very happy with their professional expertise and care and feel we are in excellent hands .

Constance D.
I was very pleased with my experience at Family Dental Group. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. Everyone was very nice, and it is nice to be treated well since you are the patient in need of help. Caring, smiling and laughing is good atmosphere for patients.I was very well taken care of and will continue to come here.
I absolutely love this dental group Dr. Mila, the pediatric dentist and her assistants alway make sure my boys are comfortable and pay special attention to them during their visits. I was always nervous taking my boys to the dentist until we found this dental group, the boys look forward to going and myself and my husband have also become patients of the group. The staff is professional and accommodating I truly appreciate that extra step they take for my family.

Dan the hygienist does a wonderful job on my cleaning and gum treatment I would not go to another person been coming here over 5 yrs very happy thank you dan
Lisa M.
I was brought right in and made very comfortable. They explained everything and made the procedure as easy as possible
Christina M.
I live far away and was visiting relatives when I encountered a dental emergency. FDG gave me an immediate appointment and treated me like I had been their patient for decades. This was on a Saturday. Try that anywhere else.
David S.
I initially went here because my regular dentist doesn’t do root canals for some reason. Been there 3 times now for a painless and effective root canal by Dr. Stein, a thorough check up and cleaning which resulted in two small fillings also painlessly done by Dr. Atwell. She had a wonderful pleasant nature and kindly described what she was doing every step of the way. I’m glad I decided to try them!
Phil G.
I was very happy with the work being done on my teeth, my mouth looks amazing dr.friedman is amazing I felt very comfortable not nervous at all. I feel like a new person great work the staff is amazing very polite, helpful looking for a dentist this is the place
Margaret W.
I have used many dentists throughout my life, and I find the Family Dental Group to be among the most supportive, gentle, and competent teams I’ve visited.
Easily the friendliest and most professional dental experience I’ve ever had. Starting with phone scheduling with Debbie and welcome greeting with Linda. Dan put me at ease while cleaning my teeth. Dr. Atwell arrived with a smile (and good literature knowledge :) and, as I was leaving, a pleasant farewell from Mellissa. Thank you all.
Thomas C.
Had an appointment yesterday with my 2 special needs kids. What an absolute AWESOME Dr Mila was. She was so sweet and caring. My kids absolutely loved her. And she didn’t mind the many questions. Even when she was busy in my kids mouth. Very professional, knowledgeable, and caring.
Anjoeline O.
Excellent job, my dentist was very caring and nice, letting me know everything she was doing before she did anything and then showed me exactly what she did when the root canal was over. She is an awesome dentist made me feel so comfortable!
Edward C.
It was a great experience
Edelmira B.
Dr Friedman explained everything in detail. Staff was warm and inviting. Filling forms out on line was much better than doing forms in the office before the appointment. Would recommend this Dental facility highly.
Richard P.
Dr.Mila and her assistant Ewa are excellent with young kids. I haven’t ever seen before a child gets excited about his or her visit to the dentist, but my children get. Dr.Mila and Ewa, are creative, patient, professional, kind and very careful. Dr.Mila definitely knows how to give kids a beautiful pain-free smile. Thank you so much!
