I’ve been coming to this office for the last 18 YEARS (since I was 7 years old) and I love Dr. Dovgan! I never understood how anyone could hate going to the dentist before because I loved going to mine. He’s gentle, charismatic, and extremely knowledgeable in many different aspects of dentistry. The family feeling is great with the staff and they have always been so accommodating to my scheduling needs. I loved his practice so much growing up that I decided to join the dental field myself. I’d highly recommend anyone to come to his office.

I have always hated going to the dentist, but I've finally found a place that I like going to! The staff is extremely friendly and Dr. Dovgan is great at what he does. I always have a great experience with my cleanings and today I had a filling done by Dr Dovgan and it was fast and pain free! I would definitely recommend him. Thank you for making me feel at ease

Dr. Dovgan and every member of his staff that I have met represent the perfect blend of a highly professional, efficient and welcoming facility. They are up to date on the latest procedures, they are willing to take the time to explain what is going to be done and they stand behind the work they do always assuring my complete satisfaction. I've had a range of work done from simple cleaning as well as complex procedures and I have been totally satisfied with the care, the cost and the results. I am happy to do this review because I've had less than positive experiences elsewhere and I hope this review can guide others to a positive experience with Dr. Dovgan and his staff.

I have to admit, I am extremely difficult to please. Having work in large inbound call centers and dealing with nothing but complaints...all I can say about Dr Dovgan and entire staff is I have NO complaints! I only have praise and compliments! EVERYONE there is simply WONDERFUL.
