My daughter just turned three and had no reservations about climbing in the chair and having her dental work done. They were on time, fast and painless. She even said ‘it tickles!’ At one point. Great experience!

I've been going to Columbia Dental for years. I started with one of their promotions and continued going because of their quality care and flexible hours. I work seasonally and Columbia Dental us open 7 days a week. Also, dental work scares me, so I am matched with the same dental tech and a very patient dentist.

I had a tooth extraction for the first time ever and I can honestly say Dr Silver and the staff were great with making me feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

I called this morning at 0855 (they open at 0900) as I cracked a tooth last night and lost the filling. They got me in at 0945 and I was out the door at 1030 with my tooth filled. Assistant and doctor were very caring and made the overall experience as pleasant as could be.

The number one reason why I go to Columbia Dental is the availability. I know when I call I won't have to wait months to get an appointment. They have extended hours and weekend appointments to accommodate their patients.

I have dental anxiety something fierce, but the Doctor who did my extractions made sure I was well numbed and comforted. Kept checking in with me as he worked to make sure I was alright and there was no pain. The visit was also the quickest I've ever experienced at a dentist. Even with the extractions and him being careful, it was still under an hour! Going back in two weeks!

Everything about my experience was positive. Great office staff, friendly and efficient. Kindest dental assistant ever. Desiree kept me calm and was reassuring throughout. The Dr filling in , Dr P, made me relaxed and was clear in explaining things and helping choose the best course. I felt NO discomfort and left feeling better. I will gladly return for continued care.

They are so fast and on top of things. My daughter went there a few times and just got braces. There are so convenient. They have an orthodontist there so I don’t have to run all around. They are a big help. I even switched to this dental office.

Went in to get 2 teeth pulled the dentist and the assistant were amazing. I get high anxiety at the dentist office...from the moment I walked in till the time I left very friendly ..the dentist told me step by step what he was going to do and whatnto expect. I highly recommend them.you won't be disappointed

The lady (Laney Finn) who cleaned my son's teeth was absolutely amazing. My son hates going to the dentist but Laney relaxed him and made him feel comfortable. She is very friendly and professional as well as knowledgeable about all dental procedures and which insurance will cover what procedure. She is a credit to her profession and should be commended for her intelligence and great personality as well as her willingness to make the patient feel at home and relaxed. My kid cannot wait to see her again. She goes over and above when it comes to paying attention to detail. I would recommend anyone with kids to let Laney take care of them.

Very nice and friendly staff. I feel like I am in good hands with this dentist office. Once my services are completed I will review the work done but expecting the best based on the vibe of the office!! Wish me luck!!
12:23 18 Jul 18
They are very nice and very professional, they do s great job cleaning your teeth and taking whatever steps are needed to make you comfortable and to have a healthy mouth and beautiful smile😁

I would come here for more work on my teeth. They have convenient hours, they’re able to get you in fairly quick in an emergency and dental work is pain free. I have an extreme dental fear and I was not in any pain during my recent extraction. The only problem I had with this office is one of their female assistants was extremely rude during my extraction. I was petrified and she told me to get myself together and not get worked up in a very sassy and insensitive way. I found that to be extremely rude and careless. Other than that, the dentist I had was phenomenal and the other assistant I had (a man) was pleasant and even made me laugh. Weed out the insensitive workers. A lot of people are afraid to go to the dentist and people like that are going to destroy your business. UPDATE: The manager called me the very next morning after reading this review. She was genuinely concerned that one of her assistants treated me this way. She listened, took note and promptly took care of the problem! Very impressed with how much this facility cares about their patients. I will return!! Changing my review to 5 stars!

Always quick to get me in and very understanding of my needs and challenges. The staff is always friendly and caring. While they are busy, they always make time for questions. Truly sympathetic to my pain and any anxiety about dental work.

Great care. Easy appointments for my schedule. Jessica is the best dental hygienist I have had over the past 20 years. She took her time and provided an extensive examination of my teeth and overall oral health
14:22 28 Jul 18
I haven't been to a dentist in years.I was so anxious and honestly scared to go. I haven't had the best experiences at the dentist. But let me tell you, everyone I interacted with was kind, gentle and I did not feel judge at all. I will be recommending this group to everyone. Probably the best experience I have encountered at a dental office. Thanks !
21:13 24 Aug 18
I love Columbia Dental. The dental hygienists make sure that you're extremely comfortable and that everything goes smoothly. I definitely recommend Columbia Dental!
21:51 02 May 19
They take very good care of me, staff is very friendly. Had to go back the Columbia dental again for a broken tooth, and again they were great got me in and out within the hour they were able to bond the corner of my molar any without any trouble, last time I was there they did a root canal on a Sunday and temporary crown for me and a few days later the permanent crown came in and they fix that with no trouble, I have had nothing but good service from them
18:40 23 Jan 18

At 25, I still experience severe anxiety at the dentist because of previous childhood procedures. I started going to Columbia Dental 2 years ago after they performed an emergency extraction, and could not be more pleased with my choice to stick with this office! Their reception team is consistently kind, their doctors professional, and overall forthcoming with all the pertinent information relevant to insurance and finances. I highly recommend this location, and their fantastic team. They will take the best care of you.

I have been going to another local dentist for years that is in the same vicinity as Columbia Dental and have never been as happy. I am always satisfied with their professional, kind, & attentive treatment. I have been going to Columbia for the past 2 years & my husband & children are now also patients. Staff is very pleasant and always greets with a smile, getting an appointment & work done is always in a timely manner and hours are totally convenient. They are open on days that other dentists are not which is awesome for those with crazy hectic schedules as myself . I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!! *Jessica HairstonNew London, ct

My son and I have always had a great experience here. Everyone that works there is amazing and the sweetest people. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.
01:33 04 Dec 18
The doctor and staff are the best. They ROCK! But who ever makes the teeth needs to work on them a little longer .Not Happy with the false teeth technician! His product sucks. Sorry but T the end of the day his workmanship isn’t up to par......four
23:16 15 Mar 18
Columbia Dental took the time to answer my question and clarify my concerns. The doctor and staff were kind, helpful, quick and considerate before, during and after my procedure. Im always comfortable and leave happy when I go to this office.
11:41 18 Mar 18
So my daughter is only 4 years old, and going to the dentist is scary for her. The lady that we had was so kind and patient with her, and tried to make her feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible ❤️ I’d definitely recommend Columbia dental to my friends and family
14:48 21 Mar 18
Quite possibly the friendlinest and most competent dentist experience I’ve ever had. Every person there was polite and efficient. Genuine people and very competent dentists
21:05 30 Mar 18
The Dentist here, are approachable and down to earth. They explain every detail, and concerned about how you feel. Leaving Oral Dental in New London was one of the best decisions I made. My whole family come here now.
19:32 24 Dec 18
Great office! Cleaned my teeth on the first visit and gave great advice on a gum issue. Scheduled my 6 month follow up and the front staff told me to bring my soon to be newborn with me 😊 Very happy with my visit!
16:00 10 Apr 18
Was a wonderful and painless experience. Have always feared dentists but they are very gentle and know what they are doing. Thanks to them I now have a wonderful smile!
00:11 25 Jan 19
Dr. Okasha was extremely professional and reassuring during my wisdom teeth extraction. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed during a procedure that is normally not so pleasant. Thank you.
22:59 14 Apr 18
I was taken care of quickly and effectively. Unfortunately I have to go back because I snapped the post on an implant. It going to be expensive but at least they can fix it.
21:55 21 Apr 18
Had a great cleaning today! Carmen took her time and did an amazing job! Best dental cleaning ever! Nice, clean, state of the art dental office. Thank you Carmen, and Columbia Dental for an excellent dental experience.

The entire staff has been amazing. The receptionists are kind and friendly. The dental assistants are knowledgeable and well mannered. And the dentist is amazing! My experience there has been a relief to my fear of the dentist.

Staff is wonderful and doctors are nice. They make you feel comfortable and welcome. I have extreme anxiety about dentists and they always make sure I'm ok and always make sure I'm comfortable. I definitely recommend them
16:25 06 May 18
Weekend hours, friendly empathetic people, and a sense of urgency. My issue needed immediate attention on a Sunday. I got in and was diagnosed within 10 minutes. Thank you for delivering incredible hospitality in an industry that is usually barron of it.
16:54 12 May 18
My now 8 year old grandson has received excellent care for the past couple of years. He is excited to go to each visit and not fearful! Excellent, friendly hygienist !
17:28 20 Jun 18
Very good work. Crown very comfortable. An having 2 more done. Had to wait in chair a bit long Too many patients scheduled at once?
17:03 26 Jan 18
Nice front office staff. The dental hygienist was courteous and explained things very well.
21:07 28 May 19
They are amazing. I have a big fear of dentists and they helped me. The staff is kind and understanding.
17:45 26 Jul 19
Have been going for years and mostly have had good experiences (or as good as you can expect when you are at a dentist appointment). Recently saw Dr. DelVecchio, he was excellent. Very patient, listened to me, and took the time to answer all my questions. Also Mike, who is an assistant and brought me into the room was great. Going in with a lot of anxiety he was able to put me at ease, he's very pleasant and a good sense of humor.
23:29 08 Feb 18
Had a dental cleaning and the dental hygienist was very nice and very informative. She Left my teeth sparkling clean (:
22:17 16 Dec 18
Has a wonderful experience , went in for a cleaning. The hygienist Jessica was great, very thorough, and professional. The Receptionist was terrific.. Sundays are the best day to go there.
23:21 30 Jan 19
Today I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. I was incredibly scared and I was crying while sitting there waiting. The receptionist, Melissa, was very helpful! She made me feel more comfortable as well as the surgeon, I believe Dr.Huang, (sorry if spelt incorrectly.) The Oran surgeon talked me through the whole process, gave me options and listened to my concerns! I would recommend this dentist office to anyone! I am very pleased! The only part I didn’t like was the assistant who brought me into the room. She called my name and didn’t even smile, ask how I was she said “here’s your room” and walked away. That was very unprofessional and made my anxiety much worse. That is why I’m giving it 4 stars.
12:26 05 May 18
Great dentist, kind and compassionate. Room set up leaves much to be desired. Assistant was unable to locate some of the equipment. To make things easier, all rooms should be set up the same with supplies labeled. Rooms need to be more organized.
