    I have not been at the dentist in years, so I was long overdue for one. Luckily the assistants at Sheffield Square Dental made it very pleasant. They went to work right away and wasted no time waiting.

    I was dreading my visit due to poor experiences with other dentist offices, but Dr. Tokowitz and his staff were absolutely great! Very happy with my visit, and pleasantly surprised to find my new regular dentist.

    Good polite service. Some of the procedures are based on restorative treatment but I’m not too sure about the actual need to do specific services.

    Dr. Tokowitz was such a pleasure to work with. My dental anxiety is extreme and he did everything he could to make me feel comfortable. This was the most pleasant dentist appointment I’ve ever had.

    The manager offered to include a cleaning in addition to the x rays if I was able to arrive 30 minutes early, the hygienist was nice and informative, making me feel better about my teeth while offering help on keeping them in good shape. Dr. Tokowitz noticed I was nervous and talked to me about my anxieties. Even though my worry was realized, the whole team was very understanding about my financial concerns and offered solutions in getting my tooth fixed.

    Dr. Tokowitz and his staff are great. Very friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. A lot dentist offices will pressure cosmetic treatment (I.e. Teeth whitening) they explained the services they offered but I never felt pressured by them.

    I haven’t been to the dentist in a few years, so I was a bit nervous. Not only was the dental hygienist (Ashley) so personable, and magaly (the X-ray technician) so professional, the doctor made a point to come talk to me before anything was done just to make me feel comfortable. Would recommend to all family and friends.

    I had an excellent experience at Sheffield Dental! I was pretty nervous after not being to the dentist in a few years, but Dr. Tokowitz greeted me as soon as I sat in the chair and put me at ease. The entire staff was great explained everything they were doing. They offer a few extra things to make you comfortable (I.e. heated neck pillow, blanket, headphones) which I thought was a very nice touch. Overall, a 10+ experience!

    Angie and Dr. Tokowitz were outstanding. Excellent communication and care throughout the exam. Online forms made it easy to complete rather than arriving early and hand write. Thanks for a great experience!

    I have never been so educated on what is happening during my teeth cleaning. I loved that they explained everything they were doing, what that sound was, what they saw in the photos they took. And the office is very technically advanced. I never knew I have been flossing the wrong way all my life.

    Allison, the dental technician, did an excellent job cleaning my teeth. She was very thorough and explained everything she was doing and the rationale for each procedure. I felt very assured that I was in the right hands. I also appreciated the extra touches provided by the office - the lavender neck pillow was especially comforting. Thank you, to Dr. Tokowitz and his team!

    Dr. Tokowitz and the whole staff were really friendly! They took the time to explain everything I needed to know in simple terms without overwhelming me with too much jargon. I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous about going in general, but they were very approachable and helpful. I'd definitely recommend going here!
