My appointment with Dr Chikunov was great! His staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. I am lucky to have healthy teeth so the visit consisted only of a routine cleaning, but even that was done very well. He was thorough but very gentle and paid close attention to my comfort throughout. I was very pleased!

While I don’t hate dentists, I don’t necessarily view it as a pleasant experience. However, Dr. Goncharov is amazing! He is personable, engaging, and truly makes you feel comfortable. I actually look forward to my next 6-month check-up with him. I would recommend him to anyone. Furthermore, Dr. Goncharov’s office staff are great as well. A wonderful experience.
