    Easy to set up an appointment and everyone in their front office were super friendly and helpful! I had some trouble getting to the office -- it's inside a large office building. But the front desk folks easily talked me through how to find them! I have a hard time with dental work and everyone who worked on me was very cognizant of it and worked hard to make me comfortable!

    Dr. Waind's office got me in quickly as a new patient. All of the staff were extremely friendly. I really appreciated all of the COVID precautions that they were taking in addition to being a good intake visit for a new patient. X-rays etc were very modern and thorough. Also parking was very straightforward despite being right downtown.

    Great doctor with great staff - were very friendly, professional, and thorough. I appreciated their transparency and how they communicate everything they are looking at and what it means. The only downside is that parking was a little far which isn't ideal (but it is validated [free]).

    Probably the best dentist. Excellent work I could not be happier with the results and the staff there is very friendly and great too. If you are looking for a great dentist in Queens this is the one to go to. I will definitely be going back in future for my dental needs I only have great things to say about them.

    Great caring and friendly staff! Beautiful, well-maintained office in a convenient location. My favorite touch: they offered headphones during a cavity fill so I could drown out the noise of the drill. Made me feel comfortable and cared for!

    Just had my first appointment and the bureaucracy was handled very efficiently, spent maybe 3 minutes at the counter. Dental nurse was just the right amount chatty – just enough to be friendly without forcing me to talk with mouth full of dental hardware. I've met the doctor just for a few minutes to discuss treatment. Other than everything being on-point, I can't say much.

    I’ve been in Seattle 3 years, struggling to find a great dentist. Finally found one! The front desk associate graciously looked up my insurance information because I did not have my card handy. The hygienist was very kind and explained each of her process, which is something that’s never been done with previous dentists. She made me feel very comfortable through the entire process. Finally, Dr. Waind is absolutely the most attentive dentist who takes time with the exam. I don’t recall any dentist that took as much care and attention to details as he did. He asked very important questions regarding my previous care, and was very willing to work with my orthodontic timeline to get filling work done through him. I feel like I’ve finally found my dentist!!

    From the front desk greeting me to getting a goodie bag at the end of my appointment, everyone at Dr. Waind’s office made me feel so welcome. I haven’t been to the dentist in over four years and I didn’t feel judged at all. Convenient location, pleasant staff, and I have clean teeth! What more could you ask from a dentist? I already booked my next cleaning!

    Laid back yet professional, really modern equipment made this visit efficient and minimally invasive. The staff was friendly and made the whole experience surprisingly pleasant for a trip to the dentist. Both the hygienist and Dr Waind were very careful to make sure I didn’t have any concerns about my teeth and that everything I needed or wanted was addressed.

    I have had several bad BAD experiences at previous dentists so I always walk in to a new appointment on guard, but Dr. Waind's staff was so caring, and patient. The hygienist was very concerned for my comfort and made even my LEAST favorite parts of the dentist (that gum thing where they poke you and say "212" or whatever) VERY managable. The doctor himself was very kind and listened and was conservative about his suggestions for my teeth upkeep.

  • I can't wait to go back.
    Reviewed on April 14th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    I have a very sensitive gag reflex where I always struggled to have my molars cleaned. It's so bad that I couldn't even have the x-ray device put in my mouth for the initial exam. After 3 years, I finally gathered up enough courage to get my teeth cleaned. Sherry, one of the hygienists, used a technique called "scaling" that cleaned my teeth just as well and didn't set off my gag reflex at all. I had been anxious all week for my teeth cleaning appointment and walked out so relieved!

    I had a great first-time visit with Dr. Waind and his staff. I have been dentist avoidant for a long time but knew I was overdue for care. They took excellent care of me and completed a pain-free cleaning in just over 2 hours. I'll be back next month to take care of one filling. I already referred my co-worker who's looking for a new dentist.
