    I had a great experience. Went in thinking I had a cavity, because I could see a hole in my tooth. After getting x-rays done, the hygienist explained that it was simply a hole worn into the tooth by me grinding. I knew I had ground my teeth previously and that I had a pit in some spots, but no dentist or hygienist had ever connected those dots until this visit! My cleaning went great. We're going to watch it to see if it becomes a cavity and in the meantime I'm working to reduce stress per dentist's orders. Great office!

    I and the family dentist are in the midwest. My daughter, having an implant emergency, is attending college in Boston. With NO dentist out east, I called 1880DENTIST to find someone to help my daughter. My daughter was referred to Dr. Nager. She never actually saw Dr. N (emergency stabilized until her return home for winter break and immediate appt with our family dentist), but Dr. N. did phone IMMEDIATELY to listen about the problem, agreed to open his office early to see my daughter the next day, and was just about the kindest, calmest soul I could possibly want in a dentist. If you live in Boston, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Nager!!!!!

    I consider myself a difficult case, having not seen a dentist in several years and having a phobia about being in the chair. Dr. Lapidus and his staff were patient, kind, and knowledgeable, and offered several kinds of sedation. Seems more expensive than other dentists, but I find the comfort and skill of the staff worth it. I have found a dentist for life!

    But the wait was understandable and did not bother me. The dental hygienist, Danielle, was the best one I have ever been to and I have seen many over the years due to moves (I am 64). Dr. Lapidus gave the best Novocain shot ever (hardly knew I had it) and they have always been an issue for me due to pain in past ones. His work was excellent on the 2 teeth done. Your recommendation was perfect.

    After having a terrible experience with a previous dentist, I finally had a good experience. The dentist was compassionate and engaging, honest and open. I do think he works himself too hard and would like to see him take more days off.
