Review # 1: Dr. Lopez and his staff were excellent in my time of need. My daughter broke a wire on a Sunday. I called the emergency phone number and wonderfully helpful Amy gave me instructions on how to remove the offending pieces. When I called for an appointment on Monday, Melissa was not only expecting my call, but she had several options available to offer me for our “emergency” office visit. Dr. Lopez was as friendly and professional as ever, assuring me that he was available WHENEVER we needed his help. As a parent new to the whole orthodontia experience, I found his office to be friendly, helpful, professional, and certainly competent. Thanks so much!

Review # 1: Dr.Nunn and his team deserve 10 stars! They are the best in the business! Always friendly and helpful and make the experience a good one! (reviewed by: evan barnikow rating: 5 date published: April 5, 2018)
Review # 2: Dr. Nunn is an excellent orthodontist; he is also a kind, compassionate and caring man. His level of professionalism is unmatched. He truly cares about each and every patient. Both of my children have been treated at Nunn Orthodontics. I highly recommend Dr. Nunn to anyone in need of orthodontic treatment. One of my children has been and currently is being treated for very complex orthodontic procedures and he has always been there for her and for myself. He has always taken the time from his busy schedule to sit down with us and explain things in an informative and caring way. I am confident in his ability and expertise, which I have relied on for the last 11 years. His office staff is friendly, reassuring and helpful in any situation ranging from making office appointments to providing treatment. You are always seen at your appointment time. They take the time to explain to patients how to care for a new appliance or the best way to adjust to a new set of braces in a calm and supportive manner. I can honestly say I have never visited a better organized doctor’s office. Dr. Nunn strives for and achieves perfection in each and every smile he helps to create. (reviewed by: Pattie McIntyrerating: 5 date published: April 17, 2015)
Review # 3: Dr. Nunn and his staff are quite remarkable. They always have a smile and brighten my day. They interact with my teenagers which always leaves me laughing (sometime even the very serious teenagers I have living with me crack a smile.) Dr. Nunn’s work is amazing. I have and will continue to strongly recommend Dr. Nunn to everyone I know. (reviewed by: Liz Ciocher rating: 5 date published: April 24, 2015)
Review # 4: Love Dr. Nunn and his whole entire staff. Always extremely friendly and caring. My daughter had the best experience with her braces. I highly recommend Nunn Orthodontics. (reviewed by: Christine Kowalewski rating: 5 date published: May 18, 2015)
Review # 5: I would like to thank Dr. Nunn and his staff for such a wonderful job they did on my son’s crooked smile. In order to straighten his teeth my dentist recommended that we visit Dr. Nunn who investigated my son’s mouth, made the recommendation of braces for preparation of a maxillofacial operation to correct his jaw line. Dr. Nunn also recommended a skillful maxillofacial surgeon. This surgeon would always comment on the nice progress my son was making and what a wonderful job Dr. Nunn was doing – ‘He always goes the extra step.’ This office truly cares about their patients and I would recommend them to anyone looking for orthodontal care. (reviewed by: Janet Kirkrating: 5 date published: May 4, 2015)

Review # 1: This was our first visit to the Dentist with our 4 year old Triplets, which was an important one as it would set the tone for future dental visits. The office is very welcoming and instantly makes your children feel very comfortable. First we had a cleaning with our Hygienist Nina, and she was so sweet, my children automatically liked her, she has the best personality. She makes what she needs to do fun, with three this can be a hard task, and let’s just say I didn’t know who my children were, that’s how good they were for her, she has the magic touch!! Then we were seen by Dr. Linda who def is second to none, she is a natural with kids and its obvious by how your children respond to her. Nina and Dr. Linda were phenomenal,so friendly, so sweet and most important knowledge, thank you so much!!! When we left my Triplets said ” That was fun, when are we coming back”? We couldn’t recommend this practice more. (reviewed by: Angelic Care rating: 5 date published: September 26, 2017)
Review # 2: Going to the dentist can be a scary experience for children. The buzzing toothbrush, flossing between tight teeth and … extractions! Dr. Matt Sones alleviates any fear that his pediatric patients might have. He gets down on their level from the minute that he introduces himself with jokes and kid-friendly explanations that make visiting a dentist less intimidating. My three daughters, ages 10, 8 and 6 love Dr. Matt so much that we left an office we had been at for 8 years and followed him to his new practice. Dr. Matt lets my girls feel like they are the ones making the choices about their dental health. They are excited to show off their well brushed teeth – especially if one is wiggling! From the big choice of which toothpaste to use during their cleanings to rinsing and spitting when they feel ready to getting their teeth painted with fluoride, the entire visit with Dr. Matt is a positive and encouraging one. Not only does he know how to deal with children, he’s also good friends with the Tooth Fairy! (reviewed by: Andrea Hershrating: 5 date published: October 17, 2017)
Review # 3: My 6 year old daughter had dental work at Ocean Pediatric Dental with Dr. Velazquez. We were very apprehensive about having the work done because we didn’t want her to develop a fear of going to the dentist. Dr. Velazquez listened to us, addressed our fears, and patiently answered every question we had. She went over all the details and tailored a plan around my daughter. Dr. Velazquez partnered with the anesthesiologist, Dr. Mendia, to have her sedated. The end result turned out beautifully and my daughter has no recollection of the procedure. She was able to have her dental issued corrected and now has a healthy smile and best of all she does not fear the dentist. Also, we have peace of mind knowing that she is in good hands if ever she should need dental work with sedation again in the future. My husband and I highly recommend Dr. Velazquez and the wonderful staff at Ocean Pediatric Dental to any parent whose child is in need of dental work. (reviewed by: Ellen Raczynski rating: 5 date published: July 2, 2017)
Review # 4: Amazing staff and experience!! From check in at the front desk, to the hygienist and the dentist… everyone made my son’s first dentist visit comfortable and enjoyable. He can’t wait to go back! (reviewed by: Donna Conklin rating: 5 date published: September 18, 2017)
Review # 5: Ocean Pediatric Dental was wonderful for my daughter’s first dental cleaning and checkup. She’s just turning 2, and I didn’t know how it would go, but they are all so sweet and made everything go very smoothly. And of course the kids love the stickers and tokens they get at the end. (reviewed by: Donald Mckenzie rating: 5 date published: March 15, 2017)

Review # 1: I can’t believe there is bad reviews ! This place is awesome! Staff is very friendly and gentile! Highly recommended!!! Thanks guys! (reviewed by: Adriana Heinsrating: 5 date published: March 8, 2018)
Review # 2: I was recommended by TR Family dental, as they no longer have a pediatric dentist on staff. I called the Toms River office as a new patient for my four year old son who has an abscess. We lost our insurance 3 months ago, so I had put off getting his filling done, which resulted in the need for an emergency visit today. The receptionist told me they weren’t taking new patients until the second week of December. I was a dental receptionist for years and would have lost my job if I had handled a new patient emergency call like that. Luckily a friend who is a dentist was able to get us in tomorrow morning. I am apalled at the lack of customer service and basic dental knowledge, especially for a pediatric office. (reviewed by: L C rating: 1 date published: November 6, 2017)
Review # 3: The worst worst experience of my life with dealing with this dental office. I don’t recommend anyone using this office. The office staff has no interest in helping when there needs to be a solution to a problem. (reviewed by: Rick Davies rating: 1 date published: December 21, 2017)
Review # 4: I was extremely worried about how my son, who has profound autism, would be able to handle his first dental experience. Dentistry for Children in Toms River is a remarkable place. The doctor was kind and patient with my son who had severe anxiety about sitting in the dentist chair. Needless to say, the visit was terrific…so much so that my son ended up tickling the doctor, and ended the visit with a huge hug for him. Happy I found this dental office. (reviewed by: Sherie Ensor rating: 5 date published: June 13, 2017)
Review # 5: My son has had some traumatic experiences at another denist office and so we were given the name of Dr. W. My son had his appointment this morning and it was amazing! So thankful we were given his name and number! (reviewed by: Jen MacLean rating: 5 date published: October 5, 2017)

Review # 1: I was referred to Dr. Wang by a friend of my granddaughters and I couldn’t be happier! The staff were very polite and helpful in explaining the procedures. Dr. Wang was extremely nice and explained everything clearly and you could even see on the computer how the teeth move as time goes on. I found it amazing! The office is very clean, bright and cheerful, which was just icing on a cake! I especially appreciated the payment plans that are available! So thank you Dr. Wang and your staff for a beautiful experience! (reviewed by: Josie Motyka rating: 5 date published: March 23, 2018)
Review # 2: We originally decided on Dr. Wang from overwhelming recommendations and we’re not disappointed! My son has been for 2 visits and Dr. Wang and his entire staff make us feel so welcome, like we’ve been going for years. The office itself is bright, clean and modern. If the terrific atmosphere didn’t make going easy enough, the rewards and contests have my son actually excited to go! On a more technical note we are extremely pleased with the actual plan that Dr. Wang has set out for the treatment of my son’s teeth. I almost never write reviews – something has to be REALLY good or REALLY bad for me to take the time – but when people are so kind and pleasant, especially where kids are involved, it makes it worth it. (reviewed by: Laura Wahl rating: 5 date published: March 24, 2018)
Review # 3: We love Dr. Wang & his entire office staff! He has a wonderful, pleasant demeanor & was willing to wait for my daughter’s baby teeth to fall out on their own. He did not push for treatment, which I really appreciate. When it was time to get the braces, he & his staff explained every step that they were doing. They have a great rewards system for the kids to keep them motivated to keep their teeth clean. Bright, cheery modern office that is teen friendly! Highly recommend Dr. Wang to all!! (reviewed by: Mary Nagy rating: 5 date published: February 10, 2018)
Review # 4: Dr. Wang and his whole staff (front and back) are the most professional and caring medical/dental group that we have ever had the privilege to work with. Our daughter started her braces “journey” last April and the practice has been nothing but supportive and kind throughout the entire process. They always go over with her everything that she will be experiencing with an explanation as to why her teeth react to the various manipulations. We are almost a year into it and her smile could not be better. She gets compliments all the time as to how much brighter her smile is. We can’t thank Dr. Wang and the Group more for the care that they have shown to her and the confidence they have given her. They are the best. See you on the 12th! 🙂 (reviewed by: Starbuck Walton rating: 5 date published: March 2, 2018)
Review # 5: My whole family absolutely loves Dr. Wang and his staff. They are welcoming. They give the kids incentives to keep up with their dental work. The atmosphere of the office is comfortable, unlike other places where it’s quiet and stuffy, they make you feel like your at home. Both my boys got their braces there and my daughter will too! (reviewed by: yvette lizardi rating: 5 date published: March 25, 2018)

Review # 3: I’ve had several different insurance coverages over the years so I have been to several dental offices and I must say no other place offers as much care and kindness as they do at Garden State Dental Associates. The staff is incredibly kind and very helpful in answering any questions or concerns you may have regarding your teeth or any dental knowledge in general. They make you feel very comfortable. For the first time in my 23 years of living I can honestly say I actually enjoyed going to the dentist (reviewed by: Thomas Accomando rating: 5 date published: December 4, 2017)
Review # 4: As a patient for more than 10 years, I would be happy to recommend G.S. Dental. The entire staff is kind, friendly and highly professional. Over the years, I have had a lot of experience as a dental patient. The skill level of the medical staff along with their assistants and clerical support make for an efficient and comfortable visit. Any and all fees are agreed upon and written in advance of the work. I must add that the results have been excellent as well. A 5-smile review. (reviewed by: Bob H rating: 5 date published: September 24, 2017)
Review # 5: This is the best dental facility, they are friendly. The dental hygienists are really gentle. The dentists offer so many ways to reconstruct teeth when needed. They help you with multiple payment options and check with your insurance coverage before applying procedures that may not be covered. Going to the dentist usually causes me anxiety; I look forward to my dental visits! They are simply the best! (reviewed by: Jennifer Duvelsdorf rating: 5 date published: November 9, 2017)

Review # 1: I have been going to eastern dental now for the past 13-14 years. I love the staff they are always extremely helpful and very nice. I get cleanings every three months and the hygenists are wonderful. In regards to the dentist team there Dr. Dubman as well as Dr Chan are great to work with on whatever your problem is. They have a variety of hours and I love that they have hours later in the day for those of us that work far from home. I would highly recommend them for any of your dental needs. My children are now older and go here as well now. They will always work with you ! (reviewed by: Jill Weigand rating: 5 date published: March 15, 2018)
Review # 2: I couldn’t be happier with how I was treated on my first visit. From the front desk staff to the doctors and support staff, everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help. I am super-glad I switched from the old dentist, where everything I asked for seemed a chore. I highly recommend this office. (reviewed by: Gary Daley rating: 5 date published: March 2, 2018)
Review # 3: Dr. Dubman is easily the most arrogant and irritating human on planet earth (reviewed by: Alia Lepenica rating: 1 date published: March 1, 2018)
Review # 4: Dr Dubman is not only professional and courteous but very good at his job. Everything from the actual extraction itself to making you feel as if you are the only patient in the office. He gives you his undivided attention and makes you laugh while doing so. Ill recommend him and his staff to anyone I know (reviewed by: john mackierating: 5 date published: August 4, 2017)
Review # 5: Dr Dubman and the whole staff take great care of my whole family. Wait time is not long and they all listen to all of our concerns. Everything from cleaning to crowns–all done perfectly and with great care. (reviewed by: Marla Stanton rating: 5 date published: September 15, 2017)
