Both my wife and I have had extensive work accomplished by Dr. Tekle. In all cases we have been very pleased. With total confidence I would recommend Dr. Tekle for all dental care.

Ever since Dr. Tekle took over from Dr. Shapiro the level of proficiency and professionalism has remained the same or better!!! Dr. Shapiro insisted on the best level of care for his patients. I have been affiliated with this office since the 1980's.

Dr. Tekle and the entire staff are just wonderful. I have been coming there for many, many years and have recommended her on many occasions. She could be the poster person for what good dentistry is supposed to be.

Patient Review

I've been going to Dr. Tekle for the approximately 15 years and before that when she was in practice with Elliott Shapiro, DDS. I'm a satisfied 'customer' and feel that way each time I go which is every three months. I've had (have) a number dental, gum, mouth and other problems over the years which Dr. Tekle has corrected. She also does a thorough job of checking the entire mouth and the glands in the neck. She identified a serious thyroid problem and the walked me to a endocrinologist office in the building and described the problem to the doctor. I was taken immediately and treated for a condition that was life threatening. She always takes care to avoid any necessary discomfort.

James B. Dr. Tekle has been my dentist for over 20 years. It has been a family affair because she also cares for the dental needs of my son James Jr, and my daughter Erica. Dr. Tekle specializes in low cost preventive dentistry and hygiene. This approach has worked very well for me and my family. As a technology person, I really appreciate that Dr. Tekle utilizes emerging technologies in her practice to ensure the best possible care for her patients. Dr. Tekle provides love and a personal touch to all her patients and without reservations, I highly recommend that you trust her with your dental needs. I absolutely trust Dr. Tekle. I follow her recommendations for home care and treatment. I have no doubt that her wisdom and treatments have prevented many problems and help me maintain good healthy teeth.

The staff was very nice and the office runs very efficiently; I hardly had to wait and I was in and out in no time. I used to have a very negative impression of the dentist office, but I don't anymore.

Dr. Tekle is a miracle worker! I needed extensive dental work done involving bridges and crowns. The appointments were lengthy and took one year to complete. Dr. Tekle came up with a comprehensive plan of action and kept me informed of each step. The equipment is state of the art and I honestly had no pain after an appointment. Dr. Tekle is the ultimate professional and showed great care and compassion during every visit.

Dr. Tekle took over the practice from Dr. Shapiro and has been an excellent dentist. I don't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who asks me.

I originally scheduled a visit with Dr. Tekle in 2012 because of the close proximity of her office to my home and work. Because Dr. Tekle and her staff were approachable, welcoming, and good at what they do I established relationship with this practice for my husband and I to receive our dental care. Over the past four years, we’ve received great care. Recently, I just complete Invisalign and am very pleased with the results. This is a top-notch practice and I highly recommend it to my friends and others.

She's a really terrific dentist in every respect and it's a well run practice. She's very gentle and considerate of pain and dentalphobes. She did a procedure on me that was complicated and went very well. Both my daughters see her and she referred one to excellent specialist care when everyone else had not been encouraging, and it's working out very well. She provides nitrous if you are seeking it for pain during procedures. She doesn't push to sell you on procedures but is very capable in dental and cosmetic dentistry. She's highly trustworthy. The charges are fair and she works with insurance companies. Our family really likes her.

Dr. Tekle has been my dentist for nearly a decade, and I couldn't speak more highly of her both as a person and a professional. Her office runs smoothly, with a warm and competent staff. In the 10 years there have been no issues with appointments, promptness, or services rendered. She and her staff are gentle and outstanding. She did a bridge for me, crowns and other work. She is simply the best.

I have been coming to Dr. Tekle for years. She and her staff are wonderful! I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to the dentist, but they always make sure I am comfortable. The cleanings are quick and painless.

Patient Review

I have had many traumatic dental experiences and I've finally found a dentist I can trust. I have a very low threshold for pain but Dr. Tekle and her staff are always very patient with me and work extremely hard to make sure that I'm comfortable. While I doubt that I'll ever actually enjoy going to the dentist, I'm at least put at ease knowing that I'm in good hands whenever i'm at Dr. Tekle's office. I would definitely recommend her to others interested in a relatively painless and professionally executed procedure.

I appreciate the way you have trained your staff and the way you and your staff are following your duty perfectly. As a public health student I observed so many health care providers; however, I have never see so clean and organized care provider like this. Keep up the good work. Once again thank you for the good service and I wish the company a lot of success. Amele Bitew
