star Shannon O. 2/22/2017   Great Hill Dental is amazing! I have gone here for years. I get my cleanings with Lisa and she is the absolute best! Lisa is so calm and nice and makes sure you are comfortable. The atmosphere here is very welcoming and everyone is so pleasant. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!
star Sarah B. 7/15/2016   Great Hill was thorough, patient, and made me feel like I was well cared for and in control of my dental health. Thank you to Dr. Khan and the Peabody staff! Highly recommended. The introductory deal also makes it worthwhile to try them.
star Anita E. 6/22/2016   “On a recent trip to the Peabody area, I was in desperate need of a dental cleaning and exam and Great Hill Dental saved the day for me! From the moment I walked into the clean, bright office, I was warmly greeted by the friendly office staff who introduced me to Kala, my “”super”” hygienist. She was amazing! Even though this was my first visit, Kala treated me as a regular which made me feel so comfortable. In her professional manner, she gave me the most thorough, painless & efficient cleaning I have ever had in a dentist office. She even took the time to discuss some good suggestions for ways I can better clean my teeth each day at home. I never felt rushed and all my questions were answered during the visit. From start to finish this was a great dental experience: clean, organized dental office, friendly caring staff and professionals who use the latest technology to brighten smiles in Peabody. In my opinion, Great Hill = Great Experience!”
star Maria D. 4/2/2016   I’ve been going to this practice since it started. Originally I was a patient in Somerville (Dr. Michaelson) and now in Peabody (Dr. Scialabba). Being in the health care profession, I was extremely impressed with their customer service and the emphasis that is placed on the relationship between dental and overall health. Staff explain everything and are happy to take the time to do so. They are also great about insurance authorizations and other aspects of dealing with insurance companies. I had an emergency on a Friday night & was seen the next morning at another office on the South Shore (Braintree I think) and their customer service was equally great.
star Susan B. – 2/23/2016   I had a few procedures done at Great Hill Dental and I must say they were the friendliest dental office I have been too in a long time. They sat with me and explained all the procedures in detail, answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with what needed to be done in the chair. I had Dr. Hickin and he did a great job on all my procedures and within a timely fashion because there is nothing worst than sitting in a dental chair for too long. If there is anyone out there that is a little skittish about going to the dentist Great Hill Dental is the place to go. The whole team takes an interest in your visit and makes you feel like family. Great Job! Great Hill Dental.
star Danielle C. – 2/22/2016   I had a cleaning scheduled after a long time of not seeing a dentist I was extremely nervous and thought it was going to be very painful. However that was not how it went. I was so comfortable, kala did an excellent job with my cleaning. I even fell asleep during the cleaning !!! I have never had such a great experience at the dentist. I was actually excited to book my next appointment.
star Kaitlin B. 1/8/2016   I switched over to Great Hill Dental October 2015, after receiving two recommendations; I had to check the place out. After going to the same dentist for 21 years that I loved, switching was scary; but Great Hill Dental was a breath of fresh air. The facility itself is large, clean, and very up to date with the latest technology. 4-5 front desk staff, all of which are friendly; and a large office staff. The hygienist I saw was super bubbly and full of energy, I want to say her name was Kayla (but don’t hold me to it). She fully understood my wants and needs, and had great recommendations. I then saw Dr. Lee, he was great at explaining things, and you could tell he truly cares about his patients. I have seen Dr. Lee twice since then for fillings and he is GREAT ! You are in and out in under 45 minutes, and he makes you feel comfortable; because lets be honest; who likes going to the dentist? Now, coming from working in the lovely world of insurance, I can understand how frustrating it can be to get quotes, policies, looking it up online, having to call – the whole nine yards. I did hit a mini snag with this office. They would give me a quote ahead of time for the appointment to prepare me (GREAT), then when you come in for appointment sign a sheet acknowledging the cost of said appointment (APPRECIATE THAT), then when I would go to pay and leave they would say “Oh it looks like your payment is x amount cheaper”, now normally people would be thrilled to hear cheaper, especially when its a few hundred dollars cheaper; but I knew it couldn’t be; so I paid the full amount and if it was indeed cheaper they could refund me. Better to refund than to owe. Not a big deal; but it happened twice in a row. I called the office and spoke to the office manager just so I could understand better where these quotes are coming from and how can we be a few hundred dollars off twice, but really not be because the full amount was truly what I owed. Office Manager was awesome. She was calm, and explained what had happened, how things in their system worked, and took the extra step to say she would look into my next appointment ahead of time to make sure everything goes smoothly with payments for when I arrive. All I ask for, and what I received, couldn’t be happier. All in all this place is clean, friendly, and very up to date; if you are in need of a dentist or need to switch I would recommend Great Hill Dental.
star Bob M. – 1/15/2015   Wow! When the heck does anyone say wow unless they are writing about a restaurant. Trust me I know being a part of Laurie’s 9:09 in Wakefield. Well living in Charlestown and working in Wakefield and going to Peabody on the recommendation of a friend for six crowns, fillings, cleanings…….wellllllllllllllllllllll…..but I did. Well you should too. Dr Scialabba (sha la- ba) was awesome. Explains everything he is doing. What he recommends. I am to long in tooth (get my drift) and a salesman to let someone pull something over me. Honest and just bang right to the point of what is, and what will happen ….preventative talk. I am not related, not a friend …well now I am…..so if you want a great dentist….hhhmm…dentist and office, and staff…..listen thye only allow a five star here. this place from the hello to the goodbye is a ten. For a restaurant…..we hope to get a wow. From this restaurant guy…..let me tell you, you get a wow of a dental practice. Go for it.
star Matt G. – 12/17/2014   Unquestionably my best dental experience. Great Hill Peabody employees are extremely professional – from the dentists to the front desk – with excellent bedside manner. Dr. Kahn does amazing work – I’ve had multiple cavities filled without issue, and she takes care to ensure her fillings contour perfectly to my tooth. Usually in and out in under 40 minutes. Can’t recommend this place highly enough.
star John I. – 8/21/2014   I have been going to Doctors for many years and I never received professional care and great service like I receive from Great Hill Dental! The staff and doctors are kind and compassionate and always explain what is happening with your procedure. This morning the receptionist advised me that my doctor might be few minutes late (which he wasn’t) but when was the last time any doctors staff said that?? Probably never!!’
starCharlene Amaziane-3/8/2017   Best dentist I’ve ever been to. Everyone from the front desk receptionist to the CEO is wonderful. The dental hygenists are very knowledgeable and personable. Dr. Khan is thorough and explains what she is doing and why every step of the way. The facility and technology are very modern and welcoming. I can’t say enough good things about this practice.  
starTim Serino-3/2/2017   Fernanda is a great addition to the office. Everyone there just makes your visit to the dentist as enjoyable as possible.  
starAnne Sweeney-1/12/2017   Thoroughly professional, knowledgeable, and using the latest technology. I know I’m getting the best dental care and advice.Every process is explained in detail, with the patient’s understanding and comfort a priority. Used to drive 45 miles to other dental practice until I met Dr. Kahn…she and her staff are outstanding (especially Greta and Bertie!)  
starenrique cubilette-12/7/2016   I can’t begin to say enough great things about Great Hill Dental! Greta is by far the best hygienist I’ve been to. She is very kind, she explains everything to you step by step. Thanks for the good services.  
starJennifer Sipple-11/2/2016   The staff is very friendly and professional. The place is kept very clean. Great dentists and staff. Very impressed  
star Jessica Gomez-9/10/2016   I’ve had some really bad experiences with dentists in the past, so when I saw the reviews for this place I decided to give it a shot. I was terrified walking in, but left completely happy. Everyone was super nice, they listened, and the best part it was completely painless. They walk you through everything and make sure you’re comfortable with what’s happening. I couldn’t have chosen a better place.  
star Drilona Ferrante-6/13/2016   The girls at the check-in, hygienists and my kids’ dentist are awesome! they are so great, that my kids are laughing and having a fun time there!  
star Michele Meza– 3/4/2016   Dr. Lee and the entire staff were wonderful! The minute you walk in the door you are greeted by a friendly and professional staff. I required several visits and never felt nervous walking in because they did such a great job of making me feel comfortable and at ease. Everything went flawless. Bonus part, never a surprise bill, they review everything in detail beforehand! Gesenia at the front desk is amazing! Highly recommend.  
star Kristina Frizzell – a week ago Went for my first checkup in three years, and of course, six cavities. Great Hill Dental was very good about explaining options, prioritizing the work and reviewing the payment options before I made any decisions. In my visits, Dr. Khan explained the steps before we began and worked efficiently while making sure I was doing OK. It was refreshing (and I do not use that term lightly) to have this experience at a dentist office. My family and myself will be going back for sure!
star D Staff – 3 weeks agoo   I have been a patient of Great Hill Dental for years and their expertise, cutting edge technology, and highly skilled staff is the best available. As a patient there I know that every time I walk in the door it feels like I am a valued member of their community. They consistently go above and beyond and I greatly appreciate all the ways they have helped me.
star John Stolarz – 3 months ago   The dentists here are very good- especially Dr. Khan. The cancelation policy should be changed. Greta, my hygienist, is very thorough. Education is key at this practice, they work with you to improve your oral health by educating you, not just throwing out basic recommendations. Dr Khan is awesome, if she ever leaves then so will I!!!
star S Bassett – 4 month ago   My family has been with this practice for at 10 years. My children started when they were at least 4!. We live in NH but we won’t change to a closer dentist. We have utilized most of their specialties from pediatric to periodontal. ALL of their employees, from the dentists, hygienist and admin. staff are all very knowledgeable, personable, and highly skilled. There is minimal to no wait time for our appointments and we are all comfortable “in the chair”. I consider it my “30 minute spa time” – THAT’s how much I enjoy and feel comfortable with this practice.
starLA K – 6 months ago   8 Stars and still climbing (out of a possible 5 stars)! I’ve been a patient of Great Hill Dental Partners (GHDP) and its HMO predecessor since 1984. I’ve gotten consistently superior care since then, and will be a patient of GHDP for the foreseeable future. I really value the long term doctor/patient relationship. The dentists, dental technicians and administrative staff know me and my dental history. My primary care dentist in the Peabody office, Dr. Sumra Kahn, is the best dentist who has ever treated me. The entire staff of the Peabody office exudes quiet self confidence, which is a huge for help for less-than-courageous patients like me. The level of self confidence is real and well deserved
star AJ Arena – 6 months ago   Really nice staff, everyone is super helpful.
star Jason Gomes – 6 months ago   I can’t begin to say enough great things about Great Hill Dental! Dr. Kahn is by far the best dentist I’ve been to. She is patient, articulate and extremely intelligent. She explains things with such thoroughness and is patient enough to answer all 50 questions I consistently have for her :) On top of that, her and her staff are absolute sweethearts. If you are there for a cleaning try and ask for Greta. She is also very knowledgeable and gave me advice on which foods can stain my teeth as well as proper techniques for brushing and flossing etc…she is also very gentle when cleaning any areas that might be extra sensitive. Birdie is their right hand woman so to speak and is such a doll. If you get a chance ask her about her new car–it’ll break the ice and also make her happy 😉 Overall, it’s the first time in my life that I’ve actually enjoyed going to the dentist and all I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the time you’ve put in to helping me.
starElizabeth Healey – 7 months ago     Came here on a friends recommendation after moving to the area, and I am so happy that we did. My four year old had a fantastic experience with his first real dental cleaning, they were absolutely fantastic with him. He was all smiles and had a great time. I just had my first appointment with them, a cleaning with Greta and it was hands down the best dental cleaning I have ever had. She was thorough, explained everything she was doing and made me feel very much at ease. I love the fact that they can service all the dental needs of my whole family.
starAmy – 7 months ago   I have been going to Great Hill Dental since 2011. It is an extremely professional and pleasant practice with excellent providers. I can honestly say that Greta is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had! She is caring, conscientious, and thorough. Dr. Scialabba is also wonderful. He is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to ensure you understand your options, what procedures entail, etc. The new office space is spotless and inviting, and the support staff keep things running like a well-oiled machine. I highly recommend Great Hill to anyone looking for high quality care in a calm and welcoming environment!
starBarbara Wheatley – 9 months ago   Whether it’s a routine cleaning with Lisa or extensive dental work with Dr. Kahn, my experience has always been outstanding. The friendly and professional environment is enhanced with prompt service, superb quality of care and a keen interest in my comfort. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a high quality dental practice.
star Theo Lea – 11 months ago   Truly an amazing dentist office, everyone is so friendly, polite, and professional. This is the only dentist i’ve ever felt relaxed at, and i’ve had my fair share of dentists. Dr. Khan is especially helpful, and is one of the last remaining novacane wizards. Whoever is reading this, do yourself a favor and make an appointment.
star Julie Potter – 11 months ago   My family and I are always pleased with the level of professionalism shown with your services and the kindness and warmth which your office staff always displays at every visit! Thank you to each and every staff member of Great Hill Dental! It is a sincere pleasure to be your patients!
star E Rod – a year ago   This place is awesome! I’ve been coming here for a couple of years and don’t plan on going anywhere else. Everyone is very friendly and professional.
star Teghan Malionek – a year ago   Great Hill Dental in Peabody provides me with a great experience each and every time I walk into the office. I am greeted with a smile from the front desk workers and taken care of right away. I personally enjoy getting my teeth done by Kala, one of the very skilled and beautiful employees in the office. Pain is never an issue (like you hear from the average person when getting their teeth done) as Kala, like each and every dental hygienist/assistant in the office, makes sure that I am comfortable. Overall, the peaceful environment in the office and the sincere attitudes of its workers provide me with the best experience one could possibly receive when entering a dentist office. Go Great Hill Dental!
star Jillian Stamper – a year ago   I have been a patient at Great Hill Dental in Peabody for a few years now. The entire staff has always been accomodating of my crazy schedule and last minute reschedules. Dr. Scialabba is wonderful and based on my experience alone I would give them 5 stars, however, it’s my 5 year old’s experience that compells me to write this review to share. A few years ago my son had a horrible experience at Great Hill Dental in BOSTON (NOT PEABODY). Needless to say he hadn’t been back to the dentist in over a year. I was determined to only take him to a Pediatric Dentist but I was getting so many mixed reveiws of local dentists that I never got around to doing so. At one of my appointments at in Peabody they told me they had a new Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Van Orenstein. I was thrilled to hear this and scheduled an appointment for my son. Dr. Van was AMAZING! He explained everything he was about to do, talked in terms my son could understand and made him laugh throughout the visit. The next day I had an appointment and I asked my son if he wanted to go with me. He was actually bummed that he wasn’t having HIS teeth cleaned. Dr. Van completely turned around this little boys image of the dentist. My son says every day that he can’t wait for his teeth to get loose so he can go back and see Dr. Van. I highly recommend this office to any adult but also to any parents whose children may be hesitant about the dentist! Good job guys!!
star Dennis Orozco – a year ago   I have been going to Great Hill Dental for a few years now and wouldn’t go anywhere else. I have met all the dentists there and support staff and it’s like one happy family. From getting a dental cleaning to a root canal, I felt very comfortable knowing I was in good hands. The office is easy to get to and there’s plenty of parking. My appointments have always been met in a timely manner, never waiting long periods of time in the waiting room. If you are searching for a dentist, look no further. You will not be disappointed. v
star Mike Trab – a year ago   If you want a dentist and staff that is professional, friendly and has an outstanding feeling for the patience needs, then this is your place for dental care. As soon as you walk in they make you feel that you are part of their family with a very warm greeting and welcome. This a modern place of care with the old time feel. There staff is OUTSTANDING, extremely knowledgeable and very comforting. The dentist are without president the BEST that I have ever had and I have had a few. I’m 61 years old Truly, I’m not of fan of going to the dentist … but who is?? But if you have to go (you should regularly) then this is your place
star fgweil – a year ago   Love the one stop shopping for dental care! Everything, and everyone is under one roof! That is not only convenient, it is wonderfully comforting. Love the state-of-the-art equipment and the high level of expertise and competence among the dentists and hygienists. But more important, I love the high quality of care, the sense that you are a true partner in the treatment plan — being consulted, respected, and heard; provided with conservative treatment options first, along with more aggressive choices, if that is warranted. And YOU get to make the INFORMED decision. I love that the evening or day after a procedure, I get a phone call from my dentist to follow up and see how I’m doing! I also really appreciate the sense of collegiality that one gets from the clinicians, and the entire staff — from front desk to treatment rooms. These folks all seem to actually like what they do, like where they do it, and like the folks for whom they do it. It’s a pretty amazing atmosphere. Go see for yourself!
star Phil Kelly – a year ago   Dr. Kahn and the staff at Great Hill Dental Peabody exhibit the highest level of professionalism and customer care. As a practitioner, Dr. Kahn is superb and consistently places her patient’s comfort and care with the highest priority. The staff is talented, caring and create a friendly environment that makes attending to your dental needs less stressful. As a professional in the Allied Health field myself, I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking the best possible dental care available. Dr. Philip Kelly
star Amanda Black – 2 year ago   I recently had a root canal done with Dr. Irwin, and I was extremely anxious prior to the appointment. Dr. Irwin was AMAZING!! She described everything she was going to do before the appointment, and told me to let her know if I needed a break at any time. She consistently asked if I was okay throughout the procedure, which made me feel much more comfortable. I was pleased with how gentle and caring she was. The whole staff made me feel welcome and they really cared about me and my needs.
star meg b – 2 year ago   I would recommend Great Hill Dental to anyone. It is both very clean and filled with friendly smart people. I always feel very comfortable in my dental experiences, as well as well-informed about my dental health. Everyone that works there is wonderful, kind, and helpful. I love the new location, it is both lovely and CLEAN. I have had work done by two of the current dentists as well as interacted with many of the other employees and have never had a bad experience. They have often been more than willing to work around my schedule to accomplish the dental care I needed. A great place to go if you need dental work done.
star Christopher C.5/11/2017
I had a great experience here on my first visit this week. Great staff who did a nice job of explaining everything they were doing and whatever concerns they had. Will definitely be returning!.
star Emily E.5/11/2017
My cleaning was easy and pain free and the doctor and hygienist explained all necessary work in a clear manner! Would definitely recommend for people scared of the dentist.
star Loe L.4/10/2017
Very professional and polite. It had been too long since visiting a dentist and Great Hill was a great choice to get a full exam. I definitely plan to continue coming here.
star Katie M.3/20/2017
I normally don’t write reviews, but this office is exceptional. I had a good amount of work that needed to be done and was extremely anxious about it. Everyone was so kind and and reassuring and made me feel really comfortable. I’ve seen Dr. Michalowski a number of times now – he is always meticulous and careful not to cause me any pain (which is difficult because I am a HUGE baby). I’ve also seen Dr. Shivji and Dr. Goodman and had equally wonderful experiences. All of the dental assistants and everyone at the front desk is helpful and friendly. All in all, highly recommended!
star Taylor M.2/24/2017
Everyone is very friendly and nice. They always try to accommodate the patients. Always had a good experience.
star Alain S.2/21/2017
Was my first time seeing a dentist in a while, they were concise and careful. Took the time to do a really through cleaning and go over my options moving forward. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.
star Cecile W.1/31/2017
My children and I have been coming to have our dental care here even before it was Great Hill, when these dentists were a part of Harvard Pilgrim. Dr. Michalowsky has helped us for twenty years. He is caring and capable. We don’t want any dentist but him! But there are other practitioners here who we look forward to seeing–Inessa for good, thorough, professional cleanings, as well as Rosa, who assists Dr. Michalowsky, and Dr. Goodman, for periodontal issues. I just had a periodontal procedure done and am have decided to write this review, so I guess you can tell it went well! I find the office administration to be friendly and able–we never have issues with insurance payments, making appointments, confirmations, and understanding our bills. Coffee, TV tuned to news, fresh flowers in reception.
star Gianna R.1/24/2017
Great and professional environment right in the heart of Davis Sq. Al at the front desk is extremely helpful in explaining costs and insurance options and he makes the process very easy! Would definitely recommend this location.
star Brittany M. 12/1/2016
I would recommend this office to absolutely anyone who is looking for a dentist. Michelle at the front desk is courteous and friendly and Dr. Epstein is fantastic. I had two fillings done today with absolutely no discomfort. In addition, I was out in less than 40 minutes. I love this place!
star Rachel B. 11/4/2016
Great Hill dental knows how to take care of their customers. I’ve had nothing but great experiences here. I recommend those who are afraid of the dentist to come to this location. I’ve had my procedures explained to me in detail which would make me feel at ease.
star Jessica L.11/2/2016
I’m terrified of being in pain especially getting work done with anything in my mouth but this place I recommend to anyone who is terrified of the dentist! The first day I walked in they made me feel so comfortable. They were super patient with me, extremely understanding with my fear and such great, helpful people including the staff at the desk. Michelle is ALWAYS nice and super helpful, it definitely makes me comfortable walking into the dentist. Dr. Brangan was super understanding, so calm, he has never hurt me once!!!… I’m very sensitive and he’s so patient and friendly… I can go on and on about this place. I’m so happy I found Great Hill Dental and I can’t imagine going to any other place!!!! Thank you!
star Shan w.10/23/2016
I found this place for myself and my husband when we moved to Davis Square almost two years ago and needed a new dentist close to where we lived. We have both had good experiences here – easy, convenient, good care, friendly staff. I get regular cleanings and always have fantastic service, and they always tell me to keep up the good work on my teeth. My husband has a few more issues with his teeth, and so he’s been prescribed a deep cleaning program and more frequent visits. The doctors are good about answering his questions, and we definitely see a difference in his teeth and gums. The only reason these guys aren’t 5 stars is that the costs weren’t always clear. There are no issues with regular stuff that insurance covers (like cleanings for me), but for my husband’s deep cleaning program, there were significant out of pocket costs that insurance didn’t cover. It would have been nice to have had a proactive, up front conversation about the costs, and what insurance would or wouldn’t cover. Maybe we would have elected not to get some of the optional things on the program, like a portable water flosser for $60. Overall though, we are very happy with these guys!
star Mary Kate Q.10/4/2016
“This is my first official Yelp review and I have chosen to write it for Great Hill Dental because they truly deserve a publicly glowing review. I am honestly petrified of going to the dentist so much so that I avoided it for many years of my adult life. When I finally needed to see a dentist, and then immediately undergo a root canal, I was crippled with anxiety and did not even know how to find a new dentist. GHD not only saw me as a new patient the morning that I called but accommodated my urgent needs for care and within under 2 hours I was out of pain and actually in a good mood… at a dentist office… I didn’t know that was possible! long story short, great care and customer service, I plan to recommend them to my friends and family and now the yelp community If you are afraid of the dentist and are looking for dental care in a comforting and professional environment, definitely check them out”
star Eli A.9/7/2016
Friendly staff, excellent service. Healthy teeth! Would recommend.
star Rosemary M.9/7/2016
Great Hill Dental is a wonderful practice for our family. The staff are very responsive and extremely helpful. My kids come to the practice and they have a wonderful pediatric practice. The kid comes first and they walk them thru everything that is going on and my kids always feel very comfortable. I have been coming her for years and have had the same dentist and hygienist, great for continuity and service. Am always recommending this practice to my friends.
star Bob S.8/17/2016
My Dr. Michalowski and Rosa are great! I’ve had some ongoing work done for a while and my visits are always quick and painless. Great location as well.
star Angela L.7/22/2016
I had a great experience here. They were really thorough and gave great tips throughout the whole cleaning.
star Lauren R.7/21/2016
Wonderful appointment with Dr. Michalowski and Inessa. My teeth have never felt cleaner. I was seen right at my appointment time and their exam was very thorough. Highly recommend if you are in the market for a new dentist.
star John B.4/27/2016  
“I have been seeing Dr. Michalowski and Inessa for several years now and have a great smile to show for it. Every six months I have my teeth cleaned by Infra and it is a very pleasant experience. She is nice, funny, and very professional. I enjoy all of my visits and look forward to coming back. Recently I dislocated a tooth and had the pleasure of multiple visits to have it set, checked, and bleached. Dr. Michalowski did the bulk of the work and did a wonderful job. You’d never know I had damaged my tooth. I highly recommend Great Hill Dental and these professionals in particular.”
star Natalia E. 3/30/2016  
Inessa, my dental hygienist, is supreme. I’ve been going to her for countless years (I’ve even followed her from one office to the other.) She’s always been kind and professional, and I have never had a problem with her! I would positively recommend her.
star Paul S. 3/10/2016  
“I’m a fairly new patient (6 months) but have required multiple visits in the short time. Scheduling has been easy and I’ve never waited more than a few minutes for my appointments which start right on time. The staff is very friendly and professional and the office is always clean. I’ve had issues with my gums bleeding for years, and previous dentists have instructed me just to floss deeper. Finally I found a solution with Great Hill Dental – an aggressive cleaning plan and take-home treatment. In 4 months the problem is basically gone and my gums are healthy again. Insurance only covered half, so it was still expensive. But the process was easy and KIM was great during every visit. She showed me tissue samples under the microscope so I could see the same progress she was seeing – no magic behind the curtain. I felt that was extremely respectful, and I felt more like a valued customer than just a “”patient””. Great Hill also uses online registration (simple) for new patients, and seems to have an efficient front desk process. I was greeted by first name (and a smile) on my last appointment when I walked in a few minutes late, and was taken in right away. No bumping down the list or eye rolls. It’s nice to know that a few minutes can be accommodated without ruining their whole schedule.”
star Shanti O. 2/23/2016
Great Hill Dental has given me an amazing experience. All of the employees from the front desk staff to the dental assistants to the dentists are friendly. I have to get my fillings replaced and Dr. Richard Michalowski showed me through every step of the process what he was seeing and educated me on what was happening with my teeth. That was the most pleasant dentist experience I’ve had.
star Rae C. 4/20/2015
I am writing to recommend Dr. Richard Michalowski and his assistant Rosa! I have stayed with this dental practice for nearly 5 years, even returning to them after a change in health care insurance prohibited me from going for a brief period of time. Additionally, I still continue to schedule with them after moving across the city, as I appreciate their warm bedside manner and personal interactions with their patients! Thanks! ~Rae C.
star Kevin J.12/9/2014
Dr Michalowski and Rosa Carrasquillo fixed my teeth again! Came in with a hypocalcified spot, left with a near veneer shine and surface. Great job
star Sy M. 10/29/2014
I give this place 5 stars thanks to my new dentist Dr. Sana Ahmed. She did a superb job explaining to me what sort of dental work I needed. She patiently showed me my X-rays and would stop during teeth cleanings to show me what my deeper teeth looked like with the help of a mirror. Her bedside manners were great.
star Kevin J.9/10/2014
Dr. Goodman totally nailed my tissue graft. I went in nervous, but when I left, I felt very reassured. Second day so far, and I am pain free. He did a really good job. Everyone here is very professional and friendly. Free coffee and other goodies too. They’ve always given me a quote before doing anything, and have been easy to work with in regards to payments.
star Erik F.7/1/2014
Everyone is just super-nice here, from the doc himself to the hygenists to the front office staff. Weirdly enough, I actively look forward to my appointments here.

After not having been to the dentist out of fear for 15 years, I decided that it was finally time to take charge of my dental health and booked an appointment with Dr. Brangen. My first appointment was for a cleaning and a brief consult with Dr. Brangen himself. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Fernanda who is one of the best office managers I have encountered anywhere. She is kind, patient, caring, and efficient. Inessa soon came and whisked me away to a room in the back of the office overlooking the Somerville area. I explained to her that I had extreme anxieties concerning dental care and she was quick to alleviate my stresses. I got comfortable in my chair, laid back, and let Inessa go to work. She was so calming that I almost fell asleep during my cleaning! X-Rays were a piece of cake as well. Inessa showed me everything and explained what I was seeing so that I could understand. Upon meeting Dr. Brangen, he was very calm and kind as well. I had some cavities that needed filling so we scheduled a follow up appointment for a few weeks out. Upon having said fillings, I was told that one was deeper than anticipated and that the tooth would likely have to come out. Since it was a wisdom tooth, a root canal was not necessary as I needed to make room in my mouth anyway. However, when the filling became infected, the tooth needed to go sooner than later. Dr. Brangen made sure that I had both antibiotics and pain medication to hold me over until the extraction could happen at the referred oral surgery center (see my review). You can really tell that he cares about his patients. The entire team is just wonderful. They really go out of their way to make sure that you understand each and every thing that is going on, including monetary aspects of the service. My experience at Great Hill Dental in Davis has abolished every fear I had of dental work. I can’t stop recommending them!

I started going to Great Hill Dental for my son. He gets great care from Dr. Thaker and I was impressed with their expertise. I decided to try them for myself due to some botched dental work I had received somewhere else. Dr. Michalowski is my dentist, and he was an excellent choice. He and his assistant Rosa Carrasquillo did a wonderful job treating my teeth and giving me accurate information throughout the process. I came with a LOT of work needing to be done. He was precise, professional, and really thorough. Rosa was very kind and efficient and together they repaired the damage. It was tough for me to go through the entire process, but they made it as pleasant as possible. I absolutely trust their work. Dr. Michalowski did an exceptional job. The entire office was very friendly, welcoming and efficient. As often as I was there, they made me feel at home. I’m glad we are receiving our services at Great Hill Dental, and I wish I knew about them sooner! Their help was much appreciated!

I was treated exquisitely by my dental hygienist, Inessa. I had many cavities (I’m embarrassed to write the number), but during this time, Inessa was very knowledgeable and helpful. While she was cleaning my teeth, I felt very comfortable. She left a great impression on me and my mouth. In fact, I’m returning this week for my follow-up! (Also, great kudos to Doctor Michalowski and Rosa for helping with my cavities. I know how difficult it must have been!) Many thumbs up to the doctors and hygienists at this practice.
star Cristina R.7/31/2013
Visiting the dentist is rarely fun, but Great Hill Dental makes the experience as comfortable as possible. They are very conveniently located in Davis Square and have morning appointments available, so I can go before work and easily catch the T. During my cleaning, the dentist discovered that I had a cavity (my first! oh no!), so I was a bit nervous and curious about the process. He explained in detail what causes cavities and the procedure for filling them in order to make me as comfortable and prepared as possible. I was then booked for an appointment 2 weeks later, and the procedure was pretty painless (although being numb for a few hours is never a pleasant experience. Don’t make the mistake I did of skipping breakfast beforehand.. you won’t be able to eat for a while afterward!). The only complaint I have about this is that he didn’t provide me with a quote for the filling, so it ended up being more expensive than I expected. However, my friend who had a filling done by another doctor there did get a quote (which was signiifcantly cheaper than mine for some reason), so this doesn’t seem to be the case for everyone. Overall, the staff I’ve met are very friendly and professional, and the reception area has free chapstick and a Keurig machine! I have already recommended them to others and will continue going back.
starMaggi B.11/1/2013
Dr. Michalowski is such a wonderful dentist. He is thoughtful, gentle, and genuinely interested in the well-being and comfort of his patients. He was gracious about the fact that I hadn’t been to see a dentist in ages. I had a filling done and was dreading the Novocain shot because it always hurt so much when other dentists administered it but Dr. Michalowski was so skilled, it didn’t hurt at all. Amazing! The front desk staff are friendly and helpful, and the hygienist I saw was great, too. The facility is sparkling clean and modern. Highly recommended.
star Lauren P.5/13/2013
I absolutely love my dentist (and hygienist)! This dental practice used to be part of the Harvard Vanguard group along the ground floor, but they moved to their own suite on the 4th floor. The new office space is really beautiful and inviting. They put out free coffee in the waiting room (interesting choice for a dentist’s office), and everything is new new new. My hygienist (kind of sad I can never catch her name) has a wonderful bedside manner. She’s never hurt me, and is very gentle while cleaning. I like her a lot. Dr. Michalowski is my dentist, and he is AWESOME. When your teeth are good, he just comes in for a quick assessment, but he did my previous cavity filling himself. He is really the best dentist I’ve ever had. Even if I were to move away from the Somerville area, I would keep coming here. It’s been about 4 years so far, and I don’t plan to find a new practice!
starKay Medeiros4/4/2017
ok I’ll try and keep this short and sweet… I’m a new patient. I was extremely nervous, I knew I needed a lot of work done and was worried about pain and cost… Ill start by saying the office and patient rooms are extremely clean. The young ladies at the front were extremely nice and helpful. I was greeted by an assistant I believe her name was Flora. She was very kind and gentle while taking my ex rays. She made me feel comfortable during my visit. I then met Dr. Michalowski, who was extremely nice. He went over every tooth with me and provided me with a mirror, so he can show me as he explained everything. He explained everything so well it was like I was taking a class lol. He addressed all my questions and then performed my cleaning. He was gentle and caring throughout the whole process. The administration team then went over my treatment plan and insurance coverage and out of pocket cost. It was the best dental experience I personally ever had. Trust me I have had some pretty bad experiences. So much for short and sweet. Hope this was helpful… To the Great Hill Dental Staff Thank you 😊

Dr. Mahshid Bahadoran is wonderful, always very caring and competent! My son was also very lucky to have Bianca, the medical assistant, she was able to answer any questions and her calm nature was priceless. Thank you!  
starJenny Jing2/27/2017
I only have positive remarks for this facility and Dr. Bahadoran. I had a complicated case that required a coordinated effort from an oral surgeon at MGH and I was very impressed and touched that Dr. Bahadoran cared so much to call him, text me and coordinate the best route of care. Even after moving to Canada, I still made trips to come back to see her because I just didn’t trust anyone else to do the job. I just got my braces off and I couldn’t be happier with the results; she had to clean up someone else’s mess and I ended up having to wear braces twice. I felt very self conscious about it (I’m 25), but I was surprised by how compassionate Dr. Bahadoran was and how she listened to my needs, thoughts and questions and answered all of them with honestly and informative facts. If you’re looking for an orthodontist, look no further.

The service was amazing the ortho DR. was able to answer all my questions and reassured that me of all my concerns. The office is beautiful, clean, peaceful, easy to navigate, and the front desk staff is so pleasant and helpful. Parking is easy, you come up to the 4th floor and your ready to go. I also decided to make them my permanent provider. I am looking forward to working with them to correct my overbite and grinding of my teeth.

I highly recommend Great Hill Dental Partners because the doctors and staff are awesome! I am so pleased with the orthodontic care my 15 year old daughter is receiving from Dr. Bahadoran and her staff. Dr. Bahadoran cares about her patients and takes the time to explain each procedure. You never feel rushed. She is a perfectionist and makes sure you are happy with the results. Another reason I appreciate Great Hill Dental Partners is because they don’t try to upsell unnecessary treatments to make an extra profit. They disclose all available treatment options and price points. I’m impressed with the quality of care and I think you will be too.

From the knowledgable staff to the hygienists to the doctors and assistants themselves you’ll receive a quality experience every step of the way.

I recently moved out of my parent’s house and, due to the change in location, had to switch many things in my life. Many of these were people, such as my doctor, barber, etc…that I had been seeing since I was a kid. However, the one thing I absolutely refused to switch is Great Hill Dental in Somerville. The main reason I decided to stay with Great Hill is simple; they care about their customers. As an HR professional I would love to get some tips from their hiring managers as all of their staff is extremely professional and friendly. The mood at the Front Desk is inviting and puts me at ease as I am quickly ushered into their lovely, clean facility which sports some great views of Somerville. The dental assistants are awesome (especially Rosa C.) and Melat, my hygienist, is meticulous in her job and always takes the greatest care not to cause me any pain while cleaning my teeth. Dr. Michalowski is a fantastic dentist and always has a joyful demeanor. All in all, this is a fantastic place and I look forward to coming here for years to come!
star Robert Eskina year ago
I’ve gone to this practice, and specifically Dr. Michaelowski, for about 10 years now, since they were still part of Harvard Vanguard – he is an excellent dentist (and a nice guy), and while I have seen a number of different hygienists, they have all done an excellent job. They do currently have one problem, however. When they had to leave Harvard Vanguard, they failed to make an arrangement with the building to allow for their patients to park in the building garage. While there is also a municipal lot next to them which is supposedly reasonably priced and should be adequate, the City of Somerville does an AWFUL job – the meters are often broken, and their signs contradict each other as to whether they accept various forms of payment. The only part of the system that seems to work is their ability to generate parking tickets, thus adding $30+ to the cost of your visit. The practice needs to either make an arrangement with the building or get the municipality to shape up, and then to notify their patient base (perhaps on-line) of the resolution. Without one of those, serious questions are raised regarding future use of the practice despite its good dentistry.

I am seriously dental phobic – going to the dentist is second only to jumping out of an airplane and speaking in public is a close third! I avoided the dentist for over 10 years – until a tooth broke and I had to face up to my fear and make that call. I chose this practice because I had last seen Dr. Brangan when another tooth broke (yes – I only go for catastrophes!). However – this latest experience was so wonderfully calming that I will reform my ways and go regularly. The receptionist was just wonderful, assuaging my fears, giving me an appointment with hygienist Melat Assefa – whom she promised was gentle, thorough, soothing – and she was all that, plus professional (she has a master’s in dental hygiene!). Ms. Assefa has the gentlest touch I’ve ever experienced and made me feel completely at ease in that scary chair with the lovely view out the window (4th floor – don’t even think of jumping out…) and classical music. She carefully explained each step, cleaned my teeth – my! what a great feeling! – and set me up for another appointment in six months. I am actually looking forward to returning! And I will be seeing Dr. Brangan again for tooth repair, but am not afraid. The office has a wonderful clean look, there are windows in nearly every treatment room, the doors are always open, and there is a very good vibe about this practice. I am very happy to have found them, and will be a faithful flosser and regular customer.

I have had a great experience for many years with the dentists, hygienists, and staff here. All my care is in one place and I have found each dentist supports the work of the others for my benefit. For example, I need to get some crowns replaced but I also needed a periodontal procedure . In order to make best use of my insurance we took care of one thing first and will address the other in January. After that procedure I got a call from the doctor asking how I was doing. I get texts (my choice) to remind me of appointments with the link to confirm the appointment imbedded. Others have mentioned the clean, neat, up to date office that is right next to the Davis Sq T stop. I still can’t say I love going to the dentist but of all the dental care I have had, these folks are the best.

I’ve been going to Great Hill in Somerville for almost three years now. I previously went to Harvard Vanguard Dental in Kenmore since I was a child but my hygienist quit :(. The Somerville location is easy to get to, has plenty of parking, staff come to get you out of the waiting room very quick, and reception is always nice. I did not like the first hygienist I saw but after having a different hygienist recommended, I don’t have any complaints. I see Kim and she’s great! As long as you have dental insurance that is accepted here you really shouldn’t have any problems. Though the insurance provided through my job is not accepted here, in my opinion it’s worth it to pay for alternative insurance that is accepted. I’ve tried other dental practices and was very unsatisfied. I’ll be sticking with this Great Hill location for a long time.

Excellent work Dr. Goodman.Then it was Dr. Townsend’s turn. He truly wanted to make the dentures to ensure excellent functionality. Make sure I could eat. I’ve never missed a meal and certainly could afford to miss some. LOLBut, as a 66 year old woman functionality was not my goal.- My goal was to ensure that I looked good.

star Mary Jane J.3/25/2015Like most people, I don’t exactly look forward to going to the dentist; hence why I waited 13 years to go back. In the past my dentists were always lecturing and kind of condescending. Well, I knew it would be a mess in there after leaving a chipped back tooth exposed for 6 years, not flossing every day and generally loving sugar so I expected a lot of judgement and disgust. Quite the opposite; the doctor and assistants were all very kind and while they educated me on how to take better care they never made me feel like a terrible person. Now I’m not saying I’m looking forward to having more work done and cavities filled, but they made sure I was completely comfortable at all times so if I have to get it done then I’m going to Great Hill.

Throughout the whole process, they let me know what they were doing and made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Townsend made me feel like I never had a chipped tooth and now I do not feel self conscious when I smile. I will recommend him to family members and friends.
starM T.12/1/2014 The best dental office! The pediatric dentist, Dr. Thaker is amazing, very patient and friendly to my kids. She always answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly!!! We always have great experiences with everyone here. The hygenist and the front desk/ customer service people are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this dental office to anyone!!!.
star Meghan M.10/27/2014 Great dental office. Everything here is superb from the office staff to the dentists- both pediatric and adult. Speaking from someone who has a serious dental phobia all work I have done here has been painless.  
star Lindsay S.8/29/2014 After years of dental phobia, my mother was forced to finally get some work done. She was pleasantly surprised by how supportive and attentive the team was. They walked her through step by step and put all her nerves at ease. Special thank you to Kerry, Kelly, Ashley and Dr Townsend for exceeding my expectations!!!!
star Kaella C.6/3/2014 After having a wonderful experience at the Great Hill Dental location in Davis Square, I decided to make sure that my baby sister was more proactive with her dental health and I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Thaker. Her initial appointment was in the Somerville office but after being informed by Dr. Thaker that she was in the Braintree office during the week as well, we decided to take her there instead due to locational convenience.My sister had two fillings done in the Braintree office – one which almost required a root canal! Dr. Thaker’s assistant brought my sister and I into the room and she showed my sister exactly what was being used (aside from the sharper tools that would scare a child). She was even shown the filling material itself which interested my sister and made her less nervous. Some numbing gel was applied, drooling ensued, and when it was time for the fillings my sister was given some funky sunglasses (the kids’ version of the glasses we are given in case of water splashes) and Dr. Thaker went to work. She checked up on my sister, counted down the drilling/filling/etc., and even helped me better understand the fillings themselves during the procedure. My sister didn’t feel a thing and even when the Novocaine wore off, the pain was minimal. Dr. Thaker is a phenomenal pediatric dentist and really understands a child’s frame of mind when it comes to dental procedures. One star lost due to the crabby receptionist. She was completely disinterested, did not even greet us upon arrival, and made it known with eye rolls and sighs that she had zero interest in being there.
star Kitty C.1/14/2014 My spouse and I used to go to HVMA dental and then it transitioned to this practice. The front desk staff are much friendlier and I don’t have any complaints about my cleanings. The insurance charges for my spouse’s fillings have been spot on, so no unexpected adjustments later at this point. There was a filling that did not quite fix the issue and they fixed it at no cost. Since it still didn’t take, we had to go in for a root canal recently. I was super on top of them regarding the cost and came in $85 under budget – and they already gave us the estimate for the crown. I know part of that has to do with the insurance company, but I’ve been happy with this practice so far.

star Noah Hoshidate3/27/2016
Great Hill Dental is an amazing Dentistry. I have never had such a great experience at any other place but Great Hill Dental. I have had many appointments and each one was easy, comfortable, and reassuring. Dr. Khan, Dr. Lee, Dr. Scialabba and all the staff are so friendly to their patients. All the staff is professional, caring and very cooperative with their patients. My family and I are always greeted with a smile and always asked about our well-being even before the appointment begins. I have never been to a dentistry that is even close to the love and care that Great Hill Dental gives everyday. Anyone that reads this, Make your appointments here because no one can do it better. By far the greatest place to be. And that is why they are called Great. Because no one is as “Great” as Great Hill Dental.
star Teresa Sullivan2/20/2016
I would like to say that I have been a client at Great Hill Dental in Braintree for as long as it has been in practice. I see Kathy, she is a dental hygienist. Kathy is very knowledge, professional, friendly and kind. My daughter is also a client at Great Hill Dental. For her first appointment with the dentist, she was set up with a pediatric dental hygienist in the office but she would not let anyone clean her teeth except Kathy. The whole office is professional, welcoming, friendly, and calming if someone is anxious. I would recommend Great Hill Dental, especially Kathy.  
star Lea jones2/18/2016
My experience going to Great Hill Dental to get my teeth care for over ten years. I do not have any problems with the dentist doing my teeth. Kathy is honest to me about what I need to do to care for my teeth. As a result to that, Kathy has personal skills, smiling at me to feel relax, check my blood pressure, and explain to me about what needs to be done. The last thing, if it’s a cancellation, Kathy will call to let me know about it. Great Hill Dentist office has an extraordinary team that also did work on my teeth, and they have high expectation to care for your teeth. It keeps me smiling!

My son and I have been a member of Great Hill Dental since Harvard Vanguard switched us. It was the best thing that happened to us. If you want the best service ever just try Great Hill Dental.

They were both very patient with me, answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, as I was nervous about the procedures.

Hi, I am not a fan of the dentist and have anxiety just thinking about going. I am very pleased to say that this office is now being run-under new management-by people who care about how your experience is there. I have had to go there several times recently and I have been very impressed with the care and professionalism of all the staff. If you’re like me and need a dentist that is supportive to your anxiety and very well informed on the latest dental practices this is the place for you! I might even say it was a pleasant experience. Just a follow up on Great Hill, I had 2 wisdom teeth removed yesterday and it was not at all painful and remains that way! Dr. Townsend took his time and did an outstanding job!

I seriously have anxiety about going to dental offices. I’ve had bad experiences other places. But, I’ve had really good experiences at this office. Including, today I had a root canal. I expected it to be just awful. But, it really wasn’t. In fact, the numbness has worn off, and I’m fine. I would highly recommend them to anyone that has anxiety about the dentist, and I’ve already recommended them to a bunch of friends

Hi my name is Michelle …Today was my very first Appointment at Great Hill Dental and I couldn’t be happier with my visit! I had an absolutely wonderful experience! The place was very comforting and clean. The Receptionist’s went out of their way to make me feel welcome, and they had a great sense of humor and they seemed like they really cared about what I thought…They seemed really close to each other like a family ( as they even said). The Dental Hygienist Katie was Awesome! She was so helpful and kind to me… Dr. Konieczkowski is such a nice woman, I really look forward to her being my Dentist…I just had the best experience here, plus my teeth are still healthy so that’s always a plus! I’m so glad I chose Great Hill Dental and I want to thank the whole staff for making my day! Michelle:)

Great Hill Dental in Braintree is conveniently located right off Rt 3 Exit 17. The office layout is open, brightly lit, and inviting. Everyone on staff is friendly, courteous and respectful, from the receptionists and office assistants, to the hygienists, to the dentists. Our 10- and 13-year-olds are patients of Dr. Thaker — she is terrific with kids. The 13-year-old also got braces from Dr. Salem, who did a great job. After 45 years I now floss every night, finally seeing the light thanks to my Great Hill Dental hygienist. At my next visit the hygienist suggested I try an electric toothbrush to lighten the scrubbing of my gums — another great idea! With multiple brush heads our electric toothbrush is now used by my kids, too. I highly recommend Greater Hill Dental in Braintree, MA for all your dental needs!
star Teja Haya year ago
Great Hill Dental is as it’s name states, great! As a former patient at Harvard Vanguard, I was a little doubtful of what my experience would be like at a new dental office. After the first few appointments at Great Hill Dental, I knew the transition was nothing to worry about! Great Hill Dental provides excellent service! Everyone is very nice and provides the best dental experience. I trust Great Hill Dental to provide the best for my teeth and to keep my smile healthy and bright. It doesnt hurt that the best hygienist, Kathy McGee, is still cleaning and x-raying my teeth after many years in her care! I wouldnt trust any one else! This dental office provides a very comfortable atmosphere and straightforward care. I trust that both Kathy and Dr. Konieczkowski keep me informed about everything I need to know in regards to my teeth and I trust their judgement on what to do to maintain their health. My questions are always answered and concerns are put to rest with them. I know I am getting the best care and I never hesitate to recommend Great Hill Dental to family and friends looking for a new dental office! Thank you!

Have always had the best dental care from the most pleasant, caring, and excellent Dentists and Hygienist here. I’ve had the same hygienistt for many years and she’s become like family to my whole family. They have the most current equipment which has made getting xrays a breeze. Recently had a crown made and the Dentist was such a perfectionist that my Hygienist almost couldn’t tell it was not a real tooth. It is bright, extremely clean, and has pleasant surroundings throughout the entire location. There’s even coffee and TV in the waiting area. The entire front desk staff are always pleasant and eager to help too. Just an all around great place!  
star Denise Ryana year ago
In the beginning I was very apprehensive about the new place as we were former Harvard Pilgrim clients and really were shocked when they turned us over to the Great Hill Dental Providers. We knew nothing about this company and putting our children in their care was scary. Then we got our first visit, and we were hooked. Not only were they accommodating for appointments, they were helpful with billing questions from prior history. The staff moved across the street to a new facility and I found parking was accommodating and the office was clean, bright and always welcoming. The staff is very approachable no matter what the concern is and the Orthodontists that our kids have been seeing have been very enjoyable. They just always seems to have the kids best interest in hand and that’s very important to me.

I love going too the Braintree Great Hill Dental Office! All the staff, from the front desk, Barb,Abby,Sandy,Katherine & Kelly are awesome! Then I’ll move on to the hygienist, Ashley, was excellent cleaning my teeth, last week.I also remember, Katie, last time, she was great too. Then, I meet Dr. Patrick Townsend! Handsome (like a cross between Clark Kent & Tom Cruise),He’s a humble guy though,hasn’t let it gone too his head! He’s also very personable.Saw him today for a tooth repair. He was excellent! Didn’ even feel the novacaine. His assistant, Brittany, I had the pleasure of meeting her with Dr. Goodman, last year for a Perio., processor. Loved him too!!! Then their’s Mica, another wonderful assistant, who I just love! She always makes sure if I’m there, she stops in to see me. Do you see why I just had too write a review & let everyone know just how awesome THIS dental office is! And you should come on in and try them.Then you,ll see for yourself why I just love going here!!! With warmest regards, Helen Bai, from Braintree

I love my hygienist, Kathy McGee. My whole family has been seeing Kathy for years so when she went to Great Hill Dental so did we! Great Hill Dental in Braintree is clean and welcoming. Kathy never keeps me waiting but if she did I don’t think I would mind too much. The waiting area is nice, comfortable, and there’s always something on TV. Almost everyone I know hates going to the dentist and they think it’s funny that my family and I actually look forward to going. I’m sure if our family and friends went to Great Hill Dental (and more importantly to Kathy) they would look forward to going to the dentist too! I can’t wait until my 6 months is up so I can go fill Kathy in on what’s been going on in life and leave with the cleanest teeth I’ve ever had. If you are looking for a new dentist I highly recommend Great Hill Dental.

starRenee W. 3/4/2016 “I am writing this review for the great care and professionalism I received at The Great Hill Dental , Brigham Circle in Boston Ma. I had tooth extractions done and I am amazed at how fast I had healed. Dr. Lorente and her assistant, Kim were a great team. I requested to have both of them, for the next step in my oral care. The staff were also very professional and greet you with a smile. This has helped me to relieve the fear of going to the Dentist. I want to also thank, Darlene, she has helped tremendously answering my billing questions, and she was very patient in answering any after care questions I had also. Thank you all for your professionalism as well as the great care I received.”
star Donna L. 5/8/2015 I had a little cavity behind my front tooth. It was treated by Dr Besdin and so far so good. Dr Besdin seems very experienced considering the number of yrs he practiced. At first, I thought the filling came off so went to the office the next day and saw Dr Besdin the first thing in the morning. He said because filling is the same color as the tooth it’s hard to distinguish the filling and I should be able to feel it with my tongue. Little embarrassed to realize my mistake, but happy the filling stayed. I liked the service I had received, including cleaning done by hygienist. (Hygienist gave me a freebie bag containing tooth brush, paste, floss; really liked the tooth brush!!) Also, I liked the nurse (Gloria?) who was friendly and smiled a lot. In addition, I had the allograft surgery for gum recession by Dr. Hur. He is a faculty at Tufts and board certified periodontist who seems to perform this kind of surgery on a daily basis. I paid about 5K as co-pay, which is a lot but reasonable compared to other dentist offices (some asked 10K for less number of teeth, even got a quote from a dentist friend in Canada and looked other country). Before the surgery, I had a comprehensive perio exam by him which costed $151 (no co-pay; taken out from ins. deductible). On the surgery day, I thought he would only do 8 teeth, but he actually covered abt 10 teeth (not sure abt exact no. though), which I thought was good bc I have gum recession every where. The surgery was scheduled to take 2hrs15min., but actually took about 3 hrs. The nurse put on music to ease the anxiety during the procedure (my favorite music was on!) and gave me a pillow to put under the neck. We chit chat from time to time. I was so nervous but they kept saying I was doing a good job, which was comforting gesture. When injecting novacain, it hurt a little, but after that I only felt the pressure, not pain. After the surgery, I had some swelling and pain, but pain is well under control w/ prescribed meds. The swelling persists until the next day though. (The nurse told me right after the surgery I looked like I fought w/ Mayweather bc my lower jaw and lower lip were all swollen.) Also, Dr. Hur called to check back on me after surgery, which I thought was very professionally nice. I’m also pleased that they gave me two bottles of free mouth wash w/ antimicrobial, two tooth brushes, one floss, three travel size tooth pastes, a lot of ice packs. I think all in all it was worth to get the surgery done because I don’t have to worry about losing teeth for a while. I was really worried before the surgery but I am glad it went well. (p.s. I wish he had explained better/more about the surgery, what to expect from it, prognosis on the gum recession and bone loss, etc. I had to ask a lot of questions to get these information from him and had to do quite some research myself.)
starDave S.9/9/2014 I’ve been with Great Hill since they opened their new office in Brigham Circle and I can’t say enough great things about this practice. I now live on the west coast and I get back to Boston often for work and I haven’t found a better dental provider, so I keep coming back! I’ve had cleanings, fillings, chips fixed, and whitening done here and every experience has been awesome. The location is super accessible. Right off of the T / bus AND they offer free parking if you have a car. That’s a huge bonus in this area. The folks at this office, from the people at the front desk, to the hygienists, to the dentists (and their friendly assistants), to the administration staff at check out, are overly friendly and accommodating. They actually seem to care. I have moved a lot and have had more dentists than I’d care to count. I have yet to find better service and care than at Great Hill. This will definitely be my dental provider for a long, long time.
starMichael A. – 8/27/2014 I have been coming here for many years and always get great service. The doctors and dental hygienists always take the time to explain what they’re doing and what is needed for me to keep my teeth looking the best that they can.
Roberta C.5/1/2013 I have a great dentist (Purman) and a great dental hygienist (Nicole) there. The problem is with the administrative part of the office. I have had a continuing stream of bills from them for a basic cleaning procedure for which I am partially insured. Each time I received a bill for the full cost of the procedure, I called the dental office, told them I was insured, asked if they had sought reimbursement from the insurer (Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA, not exactly an unknown insurer), and received an “I don’t know” type of answer. After five months of this, I called the insurer myself, only to learn that Great Hill had never contacted them. I made four phone calls that day just to get the dental office talking with the insurer. I shouldn’t have had to do this. The front office staff seem nice but not well managed.
Romulo R.11/21/2012 A good dental office. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and they are in a very modern facility: I like the fact that they can now use digital Xrays which kinda look like a ray-gun from Buck Rogers. The only thing I caution about is using them if they are not in your insurance network: I have Met Life dental and have experienced many problems with the billing.

Long and overdue review. Back in May I had 6 teeth taken out and as scared I was, the care I received was wonderful. No pain what so ever. I was warned about the type of pain I would endure before and afterwards but the oral surgeon and his assistant took great care of me. Recently, I had a deep cleaning with Dr. Moshafar (not spelled correctly) and she gave me my smile back. Great practice, great service, and a group of great people. From the administrative standpoint and clinical too.

I recently had all four of my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Wilkes. He did a terrific job removing all of them with ease, as well as making sure that everything was good on my end and that I was comfortable. The assistant (I can’t remember the name, probably due to nerves) also did a terrific job throughout the procedure. Later that night, he called to check in and to see how I was doing, as well as to remind me to keep ice on the areas that needed it. Great staff and great job!

They too are super. I am always greeted warmly and well cared for in every way by knowledgeable, patient, thoughtful, and highly professional individuals. I like them all a great deal and, while I would like to not have to visit quite as much as I have had to of late, I feel lucky to be so well served by Hillel, Lisa, Tricia, Dr. Hur, Hong, Julie and the entire team at Great Hill. They are the best in the business for sure. John DeVillars.

I have never been someone who has enjoyed going to the dentist, but Great Hill Dental has officially changed my mind! My entire experience here was great. The new office is very comfortable and modern. The folks at the front desk were really friendly. My hygienist was right on time and she was gentle, and efficient. Dr. Pawlowski was very friendly and upbeat. I had been ignoring a cavity for the last year or so and Dr. Pawlowski explained exactly how he planned to fix it. No one likes novocaine shots but I truly couldn’t feel the injection – that’s a first. My cavity was fixed in no time and the filing blended perfectly with my teeth – I don’t even know it’s there. The folks at reception made sure everything was all set with my insurance covering my visit and helped me set up a cleaning 6 months down the road. I have definitely found my new dental provider in Boston and I would highly recommend Great Hill Dental to anyone who is new to the area or anyone looking to upgrade from their current dentist.

I am a long-time patient of Dr. Pawlowski and followed him to Great Hill. Modern, clean offices and efficient staff make visits very pleasant.

star Melissa H.– 5/13/2017 The best! I’ve been going to Great Hill dental for years and a patient of Dr. Walters for even longer and I have nothing but positive things to say about them! The office is state of the art with tv’s in each room, the people are as nice as could be and they always do an awesome job on my teeth 😀 Definitely recommend!!
star Nicole S.– 1/5/2017 I have never in my countless visits to dentists over the years described a dental appointment–filling cavities, no less–as “pleasant,” but that all changed with Great Hill Dental Partners! Here are some highlights: * Receptionists are welcoming, cordial, and attentive. * Dental assistants, hygienists, and other staff are warm and professional. * Dr. Peter, the dentist from whom I had my fillings and sealants done, is AWESOME. Not only is he highly cognizant of his patient’s comfort (dentist often = anxiety, right?), but he is also personable and funny. Equally important, he clearly loves what he does. Never have I felt more in capable hands than in Dr. Peter’s. (Pun fully intended) Also, the office is very clean, well-lit, and up-to-date (from what I could tell) in its technology. Each examination room features a TV on which cartoons may be played for children, news or shows may be chosen for adults, and on which staff can present patients’ X-rays. Great job, Great Hill Dental!
star Susan S.– 11/14/2016 I have been using this dental practice for over 20 years!! (Yes, since well before they were part of this partnership which has only improved their service!) My husband, myself and our three children have gotten all our dental and orthodontic needs met here and the care is top-notch. Dr. Walters is a particularly skilled, careful and reliable dentist. He bonded a chipped front tooth for me twenty years ago – and it is still strong and completely undetectable!! In the 10 years prior to that, two attempts (by other practices) at bonding were bumpy and broke quickly. The staff is fantastic and they always have the latest equipment… I would give them extra credit stars if I could!!!
star Frankie K.– 7/25/2016 I have been a patient at Great Hill Dental for a few years now, and have consistently received excellent care. I’m happy to have made the switch to Great Hill Dental, and have recommended them to my family and friends.
starKay C.– 6/20/2016 I’ve been a patient here for sometimes and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new dental office. My hygienist Linda is awesome, always very informative In helping me with improving my oral health. Not only is she helpful and very skilled, she also makes me comfortable and informed so I know what to expect when the dentist comes in to check. I’ll be back in 6 months!
starEsther C.– 6/15/2016 “The Great Hill Dental staff are professional, very friendly, and accommodating.When they first opened, I booked an appointment with Patricia for a cleaning. My teeth have never been so clean! I didn’t realize until then that my previous hygienist wasn’t that thorough. Patricia has a great manner and is very upbeat and professional! She goes above and beyond during every visit and now I actually look forward to my cleanings. I have been seeing Dr. Walters for years. I always trust his judgement. He is also thorough and professional. Great office, great staff, great experience!”
starTaylor M.– 6/15/2016 I had not been to the dentist in about a year before stumbling upon Greathill Dental. My wife referred me there and I could not be happier with the decision to check it out myself. Linda was extremely helpful and gentle. She took her time evaluating my teeth and making sure I had the proper care. She explained everything to me in detail and told me exactly what to do so I can be on my way to a brighter smile. Dr Walters came in after Linda was done and he was also great. He was able to diagnosed my problems quick and set me up with other appointments to fix me all up. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else for the dentist.
starL V.– 6/13/2016 This was my first time at the office. My experience was seamless. Never really liked the dentist or having my teeth cleaned before, but Linda my hygienist and Dr. Walters made me feel at ease and the appointment was great. Definitely would recommend!!
starDenis D.6/5/2016 “I was a little apprehensive about switching to a new dential office. Then I found out Great Hill Dental in Chelmsford. The registration and appointment scheduling was easy! The employees are professional, friendly, very courteous. Insurance claims are handled properly, every time. Convenient appointments on Saturdays available if I recall. Convenient weekday hours too. So glad I’ve made the switch!!! And Trisha B (oral hygienist), she’s absolutely AMAZING! Always in a good mood, positive, upbeat! And she’s truly passionate about her job, and it shows. She remembers you from visit to visit, and never cuts corner to move on to the next patient. You don’t feel like you’re being rushed in and out, when the job’s not done. No. Everything is done right, every time! She’s outstanding!!! Now, I look forward to my next dentist appointment!!! Hehe. Almost. ;)”
starEmily C.– 5/14/2016 Great Hill Dental Partners in Chelmsford is one of the best dental offices I have been to. It is a beautiful office, super clean and the whole staff is always friendly from the moment you walk in to door to the second you leave. Trish is an incredible/professional dental hygienist! She always makes sure you’re comfortable and does a phenomenal job cleaning my teeth. Dr. Walters is an amazing dentist, professional and is always courteous! I am really happy I decided to switch to Great Hill. They all truly deserve five stars! :)
starJess W.– 5/12/2016 This was my first time going to this office for a dental cleaning and I am extremely pleased with my experience! Coming from someone who is terrified of the dentist I can honestly say this was the least stressful experience ever! The receptionist was bright, happy and genuinely excited to meet me which is always a plus. The hygienist was gentle, kind and very social which helped keep me at ease. The dentist also stopped in to check things out and welcome me to the practice. Clean office and even tvs at the perfect height so you can watch while they clean! They even offered me a free consult with the orthodontist to evaluate how my teeth are doing after all these years without braces! Will absolutely be returning and recommending to others!
starIsabella A.– 5/11/2016 Today I had two fillings with Dr. Walters. He was very calm, patient and gentle with my teeth. His work was amazing! I am so glad I choose him as a general dentist. He did a great job today!
starEron M.– 5/7/2016 Great Hill Dental In Chelmsford has been my primary Dental office for over two years now and I couldn’t be any happier! The staff is very professional and friendly from the moment you walk in the door. The offices are very clean and organized with a modern look. Trish is a great Dental Hygienist and does an excellent job every time. Doctor Walters is a great dentist and I have had great experiences with his work, he made a crown for me that fits perfectly! Couldn’t recommend this place enough, I drive 45 minutes each way just to come to Great Hill Dental in Chelmsford!
star Morgan M.– 4/15/2016 First off, the blonde receptionist Courtney is SO kind, sweet, and patient! I had to call back 3 or 4 times to update insurance info before even being able to book an appt, and she was consistently patient, and even happy to help me out despite my issues. This immediately left a great taste in my mouth, and once I came to the office and met her in person, she was equally as kind and genuinely seemed happy to be there. Good job picking your receptionist! :) Secondly, I appreciate the honesty of this location. This was my first visit, and I came in for wisdom tooth pain. Rather than scheduling me a cleaning right away just to get money, Dr. Patel, the dentist, inspected my mouth, quickly diagnosed the issue, and said it wouldn’t be wise to clean my teeth at the office before getting my wisdom teeth out. She refferred me to an oral surgeon, and I am waiting to have my consultation with him/her. I REALLY appreciated this gesture, and it definitely gained trust for me. The only reason I am not giving a full 5 stars is because I’ve never actually had my teeth cleaned yet! :) Once I get that done, I will update this review, having had the full experience and being able to leave full feedback. Thanks guy!
star Alicia D..– 2/23/2016 Great Hill Dental Partners in Chelmsford MA is the only place I will trust to touch my teeth! I have been going to Dr. Walters for years and his professionalism, expertise, and drive for perfection puts me at complete ease every time I come in for a visit. I get my teeth cleaned with either Tricia or Linda and they are both so friendly and accommodating, it is hard not to smile or laugh in between the flossing and brushing. Overall, the office is clean, the staff is friendly, and I have never had any issues with my insurance/payments. Great Spot!
star Jerry S.– 9/4/2014 Great Hill Dental Partners in Chelmsford, MA is an absolutely fabulous place to for dental care. Ginette and the entire staff at the front desk always give me a warm greeting when I arrive and exit. Trisha does an incredible job with dental cleaning and her skill is matched by her great personality, thoughtfulness, an attention to detail. Dr. Walters has the depth of knowledge and experience to handle anything difficult, from crowns to root canals, and he takes the time to explain everything in detail. Without exception, these are professionals who really care about their patients. I am pleased to recommend them to everyone I know. They earn all 5 stars during each and every time I visit, and I’m so glad I found them. I never thought I would say that I look forward to visiting the dentist, but I actually do! Many thanks to Great Hill and their entire team in Chelmsford!
star Lisa D.– 7/11/2015 After my amazing experience here, I decided to book appointments for my children. Let me just say, they DID NOT like the dentist PRIOR to being at Great Hill. But after their first visit with Dr.Van, they absolutely love it and actually ask to come to the dentist every time to see him now. I really like how Dr.Van is involved with the kids, and makes them feel very at ease and comfortable. He’s the best dentist for children, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to switch for their children.
star Lisa D.– 8/6/2014 I decided to switch dentists this year, and was lucky enough to stumble upon Great Hill Dental. The staff was super, SUPER friendly and they were exceptionally welcoming. The receptionist was so kind to find my health insurance info for me, (as I recently switched insurances, and did not have my policy number handy) She set everything up and even printed out a copy of the policy number for future purposes! Dr. Ahmed was amazing. She did not make me feel awkward at all. All questions I had were answered, and I did not walk away feeling confused or uninformed. They referred me to an oral surgeon for extraction, and explained the procedure well. I’m just ready to get the extraction over with, and go back to Great Hill for the follow up. I very much recommend Great Hill. It’s a great location, with plenty of parking, and incredible staff. (Not to mention there’s a Dunkin Donuts across the street!)

I have used Great Hill Dental for my dental work since its inception. I have had excellent care from Dr. Walters, who does quality work. He is clear in describing dental issues and options for solving them. His work is thorough and done promptly. All the hygienist Ive had have been pleasant and professional in their approach. The office personnel are the same. I would highly recommend Great Hill Dental to patients looking for prompt quality dental care. Paul T. (We appreciate all of your kind words Paul ~ thank you!

I always look forward to my appointments at Great Hill Dental. The staff are all very personable and really get to know their clients and are incredibly responsive to their individual needs. Getting my teeth cleaned is always one of the best part of my day!  
star Yun 1/24/2017  
My fear for going to a dental clinic has gone. Since I started seeing my hygienist Ivandra at Great Hill for over two years in every visit, I have received her professional care that is far better than I expected. Her cleaning job is not only thorough but completely painless. Nothing skips her attention she keeps detailed notes about the periodontal condition on each of my problematic teeth. I actually look forward to going for my dental care at Great Hill knowing that my dental health is in good hands.  
star Chery B. 1/4/2017  
I appreciate the careful (and painless) attention to my oral care today ~ good job  
star Dan R. 1/4/2017  
Great Hill Dental is a great place to go. From the knowledgeable people at the Front Desk who can help you navigate through all the insurance issues to the best hygienist Ive had in 30+ years.

I love coming to Great Hill. They are awesome and have a friendly and amazing staff. Dr. Walters is great and Trish is amazing too.  
star Stephanie Viola 12/23/2016  
I have all 3 of my girls go here, 7, 12 and 13. We have been going here for just over 2 years now. We absolutely love going here, so much so we drive 30 minutes to go here. Dr. Van is by far the best pediatrician dentist ever! My girls actually love going to the dentist, which is so nice for me! And the dental assistants are all so friendly and cheery! It makes the time go by, and we really feel like they personally know us and always ask the girls about school..their pets.. vacations. The receptionist are always so helpful and friendly! Both Courtney’s are wonderful, they are great at making sure our appointments work, and try to put the girls together as much as possible for visits so it’s less driving back and forth. I honestly can’t say enough good things. ❤❤❤❤

I had not been to the dentist in several years, and was having tremendous anxiety! Everyone at Great Hill Dental were so understanding and kind it made me feel at ease. They customized my treatment to help me feel calm and relaxed. Very friendly and professional staff highly recommend!  
star Andrew Dabrowski 8/20/2016  
My first time experience with the new dentist. They were clean, professional, and welcoming! Both Courtneys at the front desk made me feel right at home! Ivandra was extremely knowledgeable and even had a few tips for improving my brushing technique. It is rare having someone give direct examples rather than a typical and generic “floss more.”  
star Danielle Healy – 2 weeks ago
Really friendly and accommodating. The staff does a wonderful job at making you feel at ease and comfortable.
star Cyrus Todd – a month ago
Dr. Walters has been my only general dentist for at least 15-20 years. Despite having very poor teeth (my father had very chalky teeth he lost all of at the age of 20) Dr. Walters has maintained my ability to comfortably chew my food without using dentures or bridges. He has done fillings as needed and installed crowns when some teeth couldn’t be saved. Oral surgeons who have seen his work were amazed at the quality of his crowns. He paces his work to keep me comfortable during dentistry. He has extremely modern x-ray and other equipment, all state of the art. I can’t remember when I have ever had pain of any kind while he was working.
