What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "This was my first appointment. Office staff were friendly and professional. My wait time was 10-15 minutes. I was scheduled for a cleaning as well as an initial checkup.
    Nicole greeted me and took me to my room. She was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions. I had X-rays and my cleaning and she explained everything as we went along. She was very thorough.
    Dr. Nemechek did a thorough exam and explained the progression of my care. He was very professional and friendly. He also answered all of my questions thoroughly.
    I am very satisfied with the care I received and will return in six months, or sooner, if necessary."
    Beverly Halligan
  • "Brittany was the dental assistant last time I had fillings done and she was great. I like having her there. This time, Yazmine was the dental assistant. She was so comforting and helpful. When I was getting the anesthesia shots, she put her hand on my shoulder. I felt well cared for. The front desk is always cheerful and helpful, too. Of course, Dr. Nemechek is great! Thanks for taking care of me when it's not so fun to get fillings!"
    Amy B
  • "My family has been going to Dental Associates of Manhattan for over 10 years. We have always had great experiences and today was just as great if not more. My girls 6 and 10 were seen by the new doctor (Dr. Nemechek). When asked each was pleased with their experience. I would recommend this clinic 1000 times over."
    Chrystal Artigue
  • "Dr. Nemecheck is a really great dentist! I had a very caring & pain free experience! He was kind, but up front about the crown I would need. I’ve had bad dental experiences growing up so I’m a little nervous about work of any kind. When it came time, I barely felt the shot to numb me aside from a minimal sting. Normally I feel it stick me pretty good, but not this time! The same goes for the procedure. He was great!!!! Strongly recommend!"
    Angelica Otting
  • "Would like the hygienist to have introduced herself. They don’t wear name tags, at least did not see one on her. Should have asked her to use dental floss after the cleaning as there were a few pieces lodged between but she finished & we made an appt so quickly, I didn’t get it done. She explained things as she cleaned so no surprises and no discomfort. Other than that small thing, I’m very happy with the practice. Dr. Martin has always been great, explains all she does, very pleasant and thorough."
    June Thibault

    Caroline F.
  • "Dr. Martin and her staff are great. Have seen her since 2001 and highly recommend them."
    Judy G.
  • "I had a really nice experience here as a new patient. Jean was wonderful, the two hygienists Dani and Andrea were kind and efficient, and Dr. Fulton was knowledgeable, helpful, and patient with me. The cleaning felt fantastic and everything was so easy. The receptionists were incredibly nice and helpful as well. Thank you!"
    Ethan M.G.
