Since I am a dentist myself - I was looking for a top office in the area to have my own treatment done. The hygienists here have years of experience - 2 of them have been hygienists for over 20 yrs. - and that is in this same office! The Endodontist is an instructor at Harvard Dental School and uses a microscope - so I suspect a couple of these reviews were not written by real patients - I know him personally and he is one of the finest in the Boston area. Their newest dentist - though young - also is a clinical instructor at Harvard Dental School. My dentist is Priti (my wife hates it when I say that - but it really is her first name). I went to her after seeing the amazing cosmetic treatment she has done - her veneers are so amazing that I refer my fussiest patients to her - she has never disappointed - she always over delivers. The owner is a dentist and Prosthodontist (which means he can do implants, bridges, advanced surgical procedures and was trained at Harvard Dental School) - he also does some amazing esthetic and restorative treatment and I have referred several patients to him for implants and sedation. I also noticed some reviews about orthodontics which they have wisely discontinued and refer to other offices on the North Shore who specialize in Ortho - though for less complicated cases they have dentists that are trained in Invisalign. The staff is very professional while at the same time very personable. They really enjoy each other and I have observed other patients and myself feeling like we are being treated by friends. They go out of their way with photographs (at no extra charge) along with the standard xrays - that they review with you prior to any treatment. I have never had treatment there without them making it clear not only what we would be doing but the cost in advance (including expected insurance payments). I like my own hygienist but I even alternate with theirs for some of my cleanings - and truthfully - I am happy with all 3 of them - personalities all different but all 3 exceptional! I have physicians, lawyers, business friends, families, etc. who I refer here when I can't get them into my own office. (The evenings and Saturday hours - what can I say - I can't cover all the times they can with their group). I also refer friends of limited means here - their newest dentist has a new patient special that I cannot match in my own office - and like I said - she is also an instructor of dental students at Harvard - a top notch professional. I will only add that I have used some of the lessons I have seen from this office - in my own office. Highly Recommend!

I went here to fix a broken tooth. I couldn't see my old dentist (who had a habit of cancelling appts at the last minute) for several months, so I decided to switch. The last time I saw my old dentist he said everything looked great, but that I might have a cavity in a back tooth that he would watch. Not even a year later, the dentist at Ismile said my mouth was a mess. I had one tooth falling out and four teeth that were cracked and they all had to replaced with onlays. The dentists said that were easy to replace and though they would be a little sore it would go away in a week. Let's say that was not the case at all. Getting the onlay put on was very involved with about a dozen office visits, and the pain was intense, lasting about 3-4 months. One tooth that my old dentist said was fine got infected because of the new onlay and I had to get a root canal. The dentist at Ismile, unbeknowst to me, took out only part of the root, which the endodonist told me later. Root canal, part 2 was EXTREMELY painful. It didn't help that I was in horrible pain for about a month at that point because they wouldn't give me anything stronger than advil. This little adventure in dentistry cost me over $5,000. It probably would have been more if I didn't question the bill every time. Before these onlays, I had no pain or sensitivity in my teeth. Now, even a year after treatment, my teeth are still sensitive. I regret not getting a 2nd opinion. If I did, I probably wouldn't have a root canal or sensitive teeth right now.

And guess what...the broken tooth I originally went to get fixed...it's still broken! The dentist refused to fix it! That's like going to a body shop to get a dent taken out of your car and getting a brand new engine that barely works and the dent is still there!

I used to not be afraid of the dentist, but I am now! This experience scarred me for life!

I would NOT recommend that anyone goes here for braces because they only see orthodonture patients on FRIDAYS. It has been a nightmare trying to get appointments/or reschedule appointments for teenagers who are busy with school and after-school activities.

My experience started on their website and only got better from there. Krystal and Nicole (I hope I spelled their names right) were so friendly and inviting that my fears were immediately calmed. The office has all the specialties I needed and the choices of dentists is amazing (I checked their credentials online) I needed all my teeth xrayed since it had been a while and they also took digital photos of all my teeth (the photos were free! and boy did they make it clear for me). I was used to my past dentists telling me what I needed to do and not really letting me have a say in the whole process - which was one of the reasons it has taken me so long to get back. The dentist not only took the time showing me my photos but actually asked me what my main objective was. I, for the first time, felt no pressure to do what was needed. Sounds strange I know - but I have to say that it was pretty obvious that I had to get moving on my stuff after seeing it on that computer screen- But they let me do it on my decision and time frame (confession time: I actually told them I'd get back with them later after I get a second opinion - to test their sincerity on the no pressure thing - I did not even need a second opinion though after they showed me plain as day on the actual pictures and xrays together of my own teeth - so I called the next day - actually got approved by Chase Bank for the dentistry and I am almost done now) The best thing about this place is you can have a Root canal specialist, a gum specialist, an implant specialist, a braces doctor, all under the same roof! It saves me a bunch of time and being in the North Shore Mall is super convenient for me. I have to admit some of the negative reviews on this site scared me - but the positive ones were so positive I had to check it out after seeing their website and all that they can do - That is why I am taking all the extra time now to write this. I understand some people can have bad experiences but some of those reviews just seem unreal after my experience. Example, (I am not shy - I asked some of the employees about the bad reviews for clarification) one review said they had a silver filling done in 2007 or 2008 - but they haven't done silver filling at iSmile since early 2006! I also was made aware that the office had changed owners and management several times - but I can assure you - I have not met a staff or doctor there now who isn't professional or friendly. (I would go as far as to say that they all respect and like each other while making it fun and- I can't believe I am saying this - a pleasure to go to the dentist - if that isn't the last thing I ever thought I'd say...)
So, I guess I am glad they changed owners and management - because the ones that are there now make this a First Class Dental Office for me!
Seriously! please add your review if you are a patient too!

Horrible, the worst facility I have ever used service from, and Iam not a picky person.
I don't like to complain, some of the people are really nice, but I had a horrible experience, had a routh canal that had to be redone and had to go back 4 times for another tooth. I do not recomend to anyone.

I work at a dentist office in Salem and one in Marblehead and a lot of our new patients come from ISmile and they all or most need their work redone due to bad judgement calls. This practice is not run by dentists it run by a business man.

Explained I was afraid and was told ,no problem , we want to make you comfortable and will use sedation therapy. Now after initial usage of the sedation- when anything needs to be done, there first reaction is- O, yes you are the one that has to have sedation. My tension is now greater and if I did not owe them so much money for the first part of my treatment I would not go there again.

I have always been terrified of dentists till I met
Dr Amlani. After my first visit, I knew I would no
longer be afraid. She explained all my options and
told me exactly what to expect.Her gentleness and
kindness reassured me that I could trust her. I can honestly say that through the entire procedure, I did not feel any
pain. If I had had her as a dentist when I was a child
I would never have had this fear of dentists. My teeth look so good now, I smile all the time.

I was admiring my friend??s teeth and remembered that she HATES going to the Dentist so I asked her where she was going. She told me about Dr. McDuffee at iSmile so I decided to check it out since I needed a Dentist myself. I figured it had to be good if she would finally go herself! My whole experience was really great. The reception people were really nice and the Dentist saw me right on schedule, which I really appreciate. Dr. McDuffee was very pleasant and thorough. I immediately felt like he actually cared about the health of my teeth and not just intimidating me into doing a lot of work. I??m glad I went and I will be telling more of our friends to go there to!

I don??t like change. I have had the same Dentist for 25 years and then I had to move so I couldn??t go there anymore. A friend of mine told me about iSmile in the Northshore Mall. I figured I couldn??t go wrong if it was already in one of my favorite places to go ?? the mall! I ended up seeing Dr. Rosenblatt who is just the nicest Dentist I have ever met. And he??s young enough that I could see him for the next 25 years! He was very thorough and didn??t just treat me like a number. He took his time and explained what he was checking for and was complimentary of the work my old dentist did ?? which was nice too. But I think my old dentist also didn??t have all the modern technology this office has! I am very excited about getting Zoom and Invisalign! If you like the mall and need a Dentist ?? this is the place!

The location is great, within the North Shore Mall so it's convenient to complete one's shopping while waiting for a child to complete their dental work. The reception area is inviting and the front desk staff are very courteous. The doctors are very professional. They work as a team which impressed me since I feel I benefit by having more than one dentist to review my needs.

I went to iSmile Dental Associates because I know someone who works there. They told me Dr. Amlani is a very nice person and a good dentist. All I can say is that she was terrific. Besides being a nice person she did an amazing job on my teeth. I needed some cavities filled and it did not hurt a bit. But the best part is I had a front tooth that had a cavity. When she was done it looked perfect! No one would ever know she had fixed it. She used a high tech machine called CEREC and gave me a crown the same day so I didn??t have to go back. Melissa (her assistant) and the rest of the staff were great. Thank you Dr. Amlani and iSmile!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU Dr. Rosenblatt. In this day and age it is not easy to find someone who is caring, competent, and up to date. Dr. Rosenblatt and his assistant made me feel very comfortable (I have had bad dental experiences), they used all of the latest technology with digital xrays and pictures to make sure I understood what I needed. Without any pressure he explained to me the best course of action. Once we decided what was best for me he did a really great job on my new caps. Everyone at iSmile was great but especially Dr. Rosenblatt. I didn??t think going to the dentist could be a good experience but it really was. Thank you again. Jan.

I am new to the area and needed a Dentist. I don't have a lot of "spare time" in my life so it was important to me that I find an office that was convenient and efficient as well as a Dentist that was no-nonsense and knowledgeable. iSmile Dental Associates is the complete package and Dr. McDuffe was fabulous. He presented me with a treatment plan that outlined everything I needed to do as well as things that were optional for me to do. There was no pressure and I felt like his only concern was my overall Dental Health and what I wanted to do. He explained everything in detail and was patient with all of my questions. And I can make my appointments after work hours or on the weekend so I don't have to worry about taking time away from my job. I highly recommend Dr. McDuffe and this office to anyone who wants it all - and wants it in one office!

Dr. Slesnick is the gentlest Dentist I have ever been to. I had never been to him before and was a bit nervous to try a new Dentist. He was very patient and took his time explaining what he was doing and what he was looking at. I am usually very nervous in a dentists chair anyway but Dr. Slesnick made me feel very relaxed.

I also liked his assistant Kerri very much. I would recommend this office and Dr. Slesnick to anyone who wanted a gentle and pleasant experience!

I was a patient here for many years (15 or so) and through several buy outs. The doctor's make very bad judgments here and if you decide to go, make sure you second guess EVERYTHING. This place is a JOKE. No wonder why they've gone under so many management changes.

I told the dentist I wanted a white filling and what do they do? They make the BAD JUDGMENT to put silver so when I smile, you can see it. They said they would fix this and when I called to schedule an appointment, they brought up appointments I cancelled within 24 hours from 11 years ago!! Nice way to get out of your promise JERKS. Seriously, save yourself the aggravation and do not go here.
