Dr. Chris and his staff are incredibly caring and really enjoy what they do! I had a check-up, and the staff took some X-rays. I was presented with the X-ray results and was given options to move forward. Unfortunately, I had a cavity and was recommended to have it filled. The procedure was quickly completed, and I was on my way. Thanks Dr. Chris!

Brought my 3 boys here for 4 years while stationed on Long Island. Best dental ever. My 8 yr old with autism with treated respectfully and kindly. All of my kids loved coming here. They have had teeth pulled, 1 has a spacer, fillings, etc., all with no issues. Front desk is wonderful, especially Lindsey.

Where do I start I cannot say enough good things about this place!! We have been going to this place for over two years and we switched insurance and they no longer accepted it. We then tried a different dentist that excepted our insurance but decided to go back to Dr. Chris smiles and pay out of pocket just because of how wonderful they are with our daughter.
I rather pay cash out of pocket and leave happy then insurance cover our visits and be dissatisfied somewhere else. Gentle, kind and compassionate are just a few adjectives to describe Dr. Chris and his wonderful staff if I can give more stars I would!!!!!!!! Thank you for taking care of our little girl.

Both of my kids have been going to Dr. Chris' smiles for the last few years, always a great experience. Today my youngest son, who is 4 years old had a few fillings done. He did not complain one bit during it and Dr. Chris made him feel comfortable throughout the entire visit. He sang him songs and made sure to let him know what he was going to do (in a kid friendly way) before he did it.

- Melanie S.

Both Dr. Chris and the hygienist were amazing. They worked so well with my children. They were incredibly patient and interactive with my children which ensured they had their full cleaning and exam. I am so happy with Dr. Chris and his staff. Tracy the hygienist was amazing.

- Pat N.

Absolutely fantastic dentists! They have done a wonderful job with my sons teeth. He had to have a cavity drilled and they were patient, nice, caring, and did a wonderful job. He went home without any pain or fear of the dentist. I would strongly recommend this practice to any parents I know.
