Feel he is very expensive. We have dental insurance and he tried to put through a number of different tests/procedures without explaining to me. When the insurance company turned down paying these tests/procedures, he sent us to collections. When we didn't have dental insurance he didn't push these tests. Will NEVER NEVER go back. Don't feel he is trust worthly. Also his office staff is rude.

My visit with Dr. Levin was truly impressive. I took my son to see him for his first dental cleaning and I was very pleased by the way Dr. Levin conducted the appointment. He made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed. At first, I was nervous to take my son to a dentist, by Dr. Levin made my son laugh and he really seemed to understand how to relate to a toddler. He was fast, yet thorough and seemed very knowledgeable in his expertise. The office was clean and his technicians were quick to please. I had heard about Dr. Levin through friends and decided to travel all the way from Rockville, MD. It was well worth the drive. I would recommend this practice to anyone. In fact, after my son left the office, he was asking to go back for another visit. We look forward to our next check up with Dr. Levin.

My experience with Dr. Stephen Levin and his pediatric dental practice has been very disappointing for the following reasons:
1. The first time I met Dr. Levin at the beginning of an initial appointment for my son he wouldn't acknowledge me or greet me properly. He wouldn't even look at me. I was very surprised. Only when I asserted myself by smiling and extending my hand for a friendly introduction, "Hi, I'm so-and-so, J's mom" did he curtly introduce himself, "Yeah, Dr. Levin." I'm a regular, everyday type of mom, so I don't believe my appearance was off-putting to him (of course, my first thought was, 'do I look strange? is there peanut butter on my face?') When the hygienist explained to Dr. Levin that my family had just relocated to the area, he proceeded to make an unpleasant remark about the place I had just moved from. I was stunned and didn't know what to say. During this time an unruly child ran into the room where we were and distracted everyone with his behavior and questions. It took several minutes for the child's caretaker to retrieve him. I left that day wondering if Dr. Levin was the right pediatric dentist for my family, but felt I ought to give it a second try, hoping he had simply had an "off" day.
2. The office canceled two appointments in a row for the same procedure--the second time within two hours of my son's appointment. Understandably, Dr. Levin was sick that day. But the appointment was not for a simple routine cleaning and exam, it was for a pulpotomy/extraction, which my son was already anxious about, and when I tried to reschedule the only available opening was 4 weeks later. Only when I persisted and asked, "Are you sure there isn't any opening sooner than that?" did the office person find an opening--in two weeks.
3. When we went to the pulpotomy/extraction appointment two weeks later, I intended to accompany my child (age 7) as he was afraid and didn't want to be alone. When I explained to the hygienist that my child wanted me to be nearby, she told me that it was the practice's policy that the child be alone for appointments after his initial visit. When I again said that my child really wanted me nearby during the procedure for his comfort, she said she'd have to ask Dr. Levin. She left. When she returned she said that Dr. Levin had reiterated their policy of the child being alone. At that point, I was finished with this dental practice. I was not going to force my child to endure the procedure without the comfort of my nearby presence. I politely excused myself and we left.

Sum-up: This is a *pediatric* dental practice, but Dr. Levin wouldn't make an exception in his child-alone policy for the sake of his child patient's comfort for an unusual procedure. I am not a "hover-mom"--my child *needed* me nearby for this procedure. I had no intention of being anything but an unobtrusive presence. The lack of professional or courteous greeting at our first visit to the practice left me with a very odd feeling and impression that Dr. Levin cares little for good customer/patient relations. There are number of pediatric/family dental practices in this area, so I suggest if you're looking for a dental practice for your child/children, pass on Dr. Stephen Levin and choose someone else.

We used this dentist for all of our children for several years. The staff was overall friendly, as was the doctor. Our problem was the excessive wait times that we had to endure with each visit. One day I called, and asked if they were on time. Was told yes, and to be right in. I was calling from their parking lot, and was deciding if I should let the kids watch a movie in the van, or just go in. Once we walked in (3 minutes later), we were made to wait over an hour for our scheduled appointment. This was the last visit we ever made to this doctor.
