Have you used Dr. Melissa Leone?

I've had a plethora of bad experiences with dentists in my lifetime (and *knock on wood* I don't even have "bad" teeth or serious dental issues yet), so I'm usually pretty reluctant about following through on my two annual check-ups. However, since finding Dr. Leone and her dental hygienist, Amy, any anxiety or fear previously associated with this ritual has been erased for me!
Both are very professional, kind, and conscientious, which is important, because it means they are not prone to making mistakes or injuring me, as other dentists/hygienists have in the past. Their care for their patients is evident in the work they do, but also that they consistently remember details about me (i.e., things we discussed at my last cleaning six months prior!) to bring up in conversation. Even if the trick behind this magic is that they are charting notes after each appointment that they read right before seeing me the next time, this extra step makes me feel valued, and less like "just another" patient.
I also greatly appreciate that Dr. Leone has a straight-forward, fairly priced, out-of-pocket payment special to encourage her patients to come in twice a year. She's up front with what's included in the cost, and after plenty of healthcare horror stories where nothing is itemized on the bill, let alone priced accurately prior to service, knowing what to expect financially is especially comforting. Street parking is not too difficult in front of the office, and the waiting room is zen for those who get anxious about seeing the dentist or are over-stimulated by clutter.
I've been going to Dr. Leone for years. I've had quite a few dental procedures and I'm never in any pain or discomfort. Dr. Leone is very good with communicating with her patients and I really like her dental hygienist as well.
Convenient times, efficient/knowledgeable staff, they keep my teeth in shape!
One of the better dentist offices I've gone to. Make sure to check your insurance covers it, though! I had to switch when my old carrier stopped. Hope to be back!
Have known Melissa for years as both a friend and a dentist. She's the bomb
