Alex Smolyar is my "Gentle" dentist. Since 2004, and after not being anywhere near a dentist in a very long time, treats me with respect and compassion. His staff is happy, attentive and kind. Over the years several emergencies have arisen. Dr. Smolyar has always made time to see me the same day if the crisis involved pain. He has always resolved any issues in a prompt and professional manner. I do love my dentist!
