Kayla R. Says...

We really liked the office in ashtabula. they are nice and do a good job. they seem to really care about there work.

Lydia B. Says...

pleasant and quick front desk and technicians. doctors take the time to ask extra questions so that everyone is clear on the procedures. Self pay is easy to set up too.

Shani R. Says...

My 6 year old daughter was terrified of the dentist before coming here and seeing Dr. Masoud or her “dentist friend” as she calls him lol. He was able to start a root canal on her tooth and she sat just fine for him. Today when we came back for the crown to be put on a tooth to be filled he wasnt the dentist working on her but stopped to see her and tell her that he would step in and finish if she got to upset. That seemed to calm her nerves and she did just fine with the other dentist. Our experience with the Cleveland Dental institute have been amazing and now a little girl who was terrified of the dentist can wait to go back.
