Usually first dental visits are about an hour and you have a lot of information thrown at you that you don't understand. Not at Aspire! My appointment was almost 2 hours. The hygienist cleaning my teeth explained what healthy gums should look like, what the numbers they call out are for, etc. Then Dr. Magda came in. She was so nice. Her bedside manner is amazing! She took her time during the exam. The best part, she massaged my jaw! I clench my teeth all the time. Whatever she did, I don't clench as much and my jaw isn't as painful. She is truly a great doctor.
My first appt went okay, but my 2nd visit was the real disappointment.I went in for the basic cleaning/exam, The cleaning went great, but Dr. DAngelis didn't impress me during my check up. I wouldn't say I have a fear of the dentist, but I can't say I enjoy it. I really like & prefer my dentist to be a little more personable, unfortunately she was far from that. I would think for meeting the first time she would be a little more interested in knowing who I am on a more personal level, it just makes you feel good & appreciated as a patient. I know what I'm there for, I guess I'm not used to this kind of carelessness. My previous dentist was so great about getting to know me I'm pretty disappointed she isn't this way. My 2nd appt was what really made me unhappy, I was getting a few fillings. Once again she barely said a word, she actually gave me a wave with her hand, said hello & got to drilling...didn't even ask if I had any questions about what we were doing that day or go over the procedure & what to expect. This was only my 3rd filling in my life!! Needless to say I did not have a good experience. I think good treatment includes good care & kind & gentle personalities where you can feel comfortable with the person who is drilling your teeth.
I wish I could have had the same experience that everyone else on here had. She didn't talk to me a lot and I asked her questions about my health and felt like they went unanswered. I am not sure if she was in a hurry or what? I felt like the treatment plan she gave me was expensive and definitely more than what I needed done. I got a second opinion from another dentist and the treatment plan was less expensive and much less treatment. I just want a doctor/dentist that can communicate with their patients and be honest, I did not feel that when I came here. I felt like I was a dollar sign. I am sorry but I really did not have the same experience as others on here :( Dissapointed
I have had the honor or working with Dr. D'Angelis and her staff as an extern in the past. I feel compelled to share my experience, as I have had one of the most profound learning adventures to date.
I was very nervous to go from classroom/clinic to private practice, and she made me feel very welcome and at ease, she has aided in the instruction of dentist, hygienist and dental assistants in the past and has made me a stronger dental assistant today..
Dr. D'Angelis has a gentle chair-side manner, and patient care and comfort are very important to her..
I shall be forever grateful to her and her loving staff,
and hope to have an ounce of her grace and professionalism. She is truly inspiring.
I am completely shocked by this review. I am extremely scared of the dentist. I would avoid going for my cleanings and fillings because my teeth were so sensitive and they would hurt after having work done. A friend referred me to Dr. D'Angelis and I was amazed by the entire environment. The staff was extremely kind. Dr. D'Angelis was not only nice, but took the time to answer all my questions and make me feel comfortable. The chair had a massager and they gave me music to listen to. On top of that, my teeth didn't hurt! I recommend Dr. D'Angelis to everyone!
I typically dread dental appointments, but found my visit to Aspire Dental actually enjoyable. I'm new to town and chose Aspire Dental based upon online reviews. First, the office is the most aesthetically pleasing I've visited. Second, my dental hygienist was fantastic -- very friendly, explained everything, bent over backward to make me feel comfortable. Third, Dr. D'Angelis-Morris was warm, entirely competent/thorough/professional, and yet chatted to me as though we were old friends. Overall, it was a lovely experience.
Another plus: the office uses digital x-ray technology, which made x-rays SO much easier than my previous experience with painfully pointy bite wings that triggered my gag reflex. My hygienist was so kind and did everything possible to work with me so that I could be x-rayed without gagging or general discomfort.
I highly recommend Dr. D'Angelis-Morris and her staff!
I have extremely sensitive teeth and have had bad experiences with dentists in the past, so going to the dentist is something I used to fear and dread. Dr. D'Angelis-Morris was recommended to me, and she is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. She and her staff really care about my sensitive teeth and the fact that cleaning them can be extremely painful. They are always gentle and try to make me feel as comfortable as possible. There are also nice distractions when you're in the dental chair, such as a heated massage feature built into the chair and headphones so you can listen to the radio. Dr. D'Angelis-Morris has also filled some cavities and put in a crown, and the whole experience was excellent (to the extent that going to the dentist can be excellent). Her services are a little bit more expensive than other dentists I have been to, but it is well worth the price to have a comfortable experience at the dentist.
Pros: Great staff, dentist is a good listener, great service, beautiful office, massage dental chairs
Cons: More expensive than the average dentist
I had a great dentist growing up but this dentist is better. I was a nervious wreck after having a horrible experience last year but this dentist immediately put me at ease. She has the best chair side manner I've ever seen and like her, her staff is careful, thoughtful and take their time so the experience is painless. I highly recommend Aspire Dental and Dr. D'Angelis-Morris to even the most fearful patient.
Pros: Wonderful treatment, excellent staff, pain free, great location, office ambience, use green technology.
I am deathly afraid of dentists, but unfortunately I had a tooth break and needed to go. Someone I work with told me that they went to this office, so I thought I'd give them a try. Dr. D'Angelis-Morris was very gentle, and the staff was so friendly. Plus on top of the care I received, my friend got movie tickets for referring me to the office. I am pleased to say that I'm just about over my fear of dentists after just 2 visits to this office. Thank you so much Dr. D'Angelis-Morris for a pleasant experience.
I've been very pleased with the care I've received from this office. The hygeinists and dentist are incredibly nice and have made my visits comfortable. The chairs have a massage function, as well!
In the past I've left dentist offices with discomfort in my teeth or gums from a simple cleaning and this has never occured here. I highly recommend Dr. D'Angelis-Morris!
Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable dental experience
