    My initial exam was with Dr. Patricia Khamis-Silva and she was so compassionate and understanding and her assistant Jessica was the same. I returned a few days later for my cleaning and had Martha as my hygienist and she was amazing. Good stories to share and fabulous at educating. I would highly recommend By The Lake Dental to all.

    Opencare is a very professional and knowledgeable dental clinic. I find their technology very fascinating and advance, never had my teeth taken picture the they did, it’s amazing. The staff are also friendly and informative. They are also close by to my house which is great. Booking in Opencare is also easy they reply fast, so efficient. Thank you for taking care of my teeth.

    All the staff were very pleasant and professional. When I mentioned preferring natural methods I wasn't shut down, like I am sometimes with other dentists, but she listened and gave her input on the different options. The office does take a lot of x-rays and offers many high tech options. I also like that the dentists rotate taking a Saturday each month.

    It has been quite some time since I’ve visited a dentist. Overall, I’ve just had bad experiences throughout the years. I was looking for a dentist, and came across Dr. Andrea Tagliaferro’s practice. I decided to give it a go, and immediately I was at ease. The office itself is gorgeous, and my experience with all staff was great, everyone was warm and seemed to genuinely enjoy their time there. I am excited to have finally found my dentist, only a few minutes away from home.

    I have only had a consultation with Andrea, but I can speak to a few things: 1. The clinic has a really inviting atmosphere, everyone was social and comfortable. 2. The equipment they used to take xrays and other images was really high-tech and cool, and they were always super transparent about how everything worked. 3. When I had issues with my insurance company, the receptionist handled all of it with patience and kindness. 4. Andrea was incredibly thorough when she sat down with me after, really talking to me about my dental health in a way that no other dentist has. I feel like I really actually understand everything that is happening, and like I wasn't just being rushed around. I really can't overstate how much better I feel about her than I have any of my previous dentists. She was thoughtful in her answers to my questions. 5. Every level of the experience made me feel like I was in control, was being respected, and was understood. HIGHLY recommend.

    I was terrified going to the dentist after 4 years of not seeing anyone. This office was so accommodating to my needs and has state of the art equipment. All aspects of the appointment were explained to me in great detail and it really calmed the situation. All of the staff including hygienists and front desk were excellent at explaining the process and tailoring services to my needs. I would definitely recommend this clinic to everyone.

I felt safe and comfortable throughout the entire appointment. I learned a lot about my teeth and how to take better care of my then. It was a great experience!
