I have not been to a dentist in over 10 years. I have an extreme phobia that stems from a bad experience as a young adult. I explained all this to the folks at Okun dentistry and they took it in stride with no recrimination. They ease your fears the minute you walk in the door with a casual and friendly attitude. All workstations have nitrous oxide available and headphones so it is impossible not to be relaxed and at ease as they proceed with the work. Amy Okun is very professional and fast. She stated several times during the initial visit that having work done at the dentist's office should never be uncomfortable and she was true to her word. Ms. Okun has a passion for her profession that is refreshing to see. In closing, I can only say that I will continue to be a client of Okun dentistry. I would also like to say thank you for helping me get my dental health back
My family and I have been patients of the Okun Family Dentistry Practice, for well over 20years. Dr. Bruce Okun has treated my parents, my husband, myself and my children for every dental problem, from simple fillings, to root canals to cosmetic crowns. In particular, about 15 years ago, I suffered from a severe case of TMJ, which caused debilitating headaches and severe joint pain. Dr. Okun made me a mouth piece that I had to wear 24 hours a day. He kept fixing it and re-vamping it over the years to fit the changes in my mouth. I can now honestly say, because of him, I no longer wear a mouth brace nor suffer from the effects of TMJ. I jokingly call him my "miracle worker". The staff of the Okun practice, from the office personnel to the dental assistants and hygienists, are all friendly, caring professionals, who are there to help the patient any way they can and to make your dental visit as pleasant as possible. A patient can not help feeling at ease and relaxed while they are there. After all these years, I no longer feel like I am going to see my dentist, but my friend as well. The benevolence and genuine caring that the dentists and staff bring, truly make a patient feel welcomed and appreciated. My family and many friends, who are also long time patients of Dr. Okun, along with myself, always leave there knowing we received the best dental care and treatment available.
I've been a patient of Dr. Okun for years and I've referred many of my friends to her because she is everything a great dentist should be. She is warm and welcoming. She takes her time to explain (in a language I can understand) what she and the hygienists need to do and, most importantly, she is very gentle. I would recommend Dr. Okun to anyone who is looking to have a very rewarding experience with their dentist.
I have been plagued with the many disadvantages of gum disease my entire adult life. I have known many dentists and all possessed varying degrees of skills and bedside manners. When I found Dr. Okun over ten years ago I found a treasure. Not only is he highly skilled and up-to-date on the newest technology – he is an absolutely delightful person who is always accessible. My wife and I are in the midst of retiring to Hawaii and we'll be back at least once a year to be seen by Drs. Bruce or Amy Okun. Other then the decision to marry – selecting a dentist is the most important decision I could make. (At least he never puts me in the dog house!)
