If pleasant and stress free can describe a dentist's office, Dr. Chicvak's practice gets top rating. From the greeting as we enter the office, to Silvano's skilled and gentle cleaning, to Dr. Chicvak's knowledge and kind approach to every situation, we can't imagine going elsewhere for our dental needs. Highest recommendation.

A wonderful, professional and friendly office
Staff was great. No wait time. I had an amazing cleaning
Fantastic staff hight recommend
In the past I dread going to the dentist but this dental office changed that I look forward in going every six months .
Great service, great staff, amazing dentist!
Dr Chicvak was very thorough and friendly. This is my first time visiting this practice and I was very happy and satisfied. I highly recommend him!
The office is a very welcoming, friendly and efficient atmosphere! Dr. Chicvak and his staff are great at what they do, I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a good dentist!
The cleaning was painful, but that was my fault for waiting so long. Otherwise the overall experience was an absolute pleasure. The staff at the front desk was welcoming and informative. My dental assistant was friendly, and he was from my Alma mater so bonus points for that. The doctor spent a good amount of time doing his examination. I always appreciate when doctors take the time to review with the patient. This is something that unfortunately is not an industry standard. I plan on coming back regularly for all my dental needs.
Everyone in the office was very helpful and made me feel very comfortable during my visit. I would highly recommend them!
Really friendly staff and great dental care as always
Everyone is so friendly and the Technician and Dentist are excellent
Simply outstanding …. always a pleasure.
Silvado was the best. Makes a cleaning a pleasure
Quick appointment met, office staff very friendly, doctor answered all my questions in detail.
Best dentist and staff I’ve ever had. My family has only been with Dr C for the past year. We got lucky having found him. I’ve always dreaded the dentist. Now I go willingly. Thank you to everyone part of the practice!!
Best place ever. I feel like a new person with new teeth!
I happen to be a nervous lady, especially at a dentists office. I this appointment I had was very pleasant , and I felt very relaxed in the chair....The office staff are wonderful helpful ladies!
I have been a patient of Dr. Chicvak for many years. The care has consistently been exemplary in every way. The front office is friendly and conscientious. The hygienist is conscientious and kind. Dr. Chicvak is extremely knowledgeable and is able to find solutions to problems. He does a thorough examination and is extremely pleasant and easy to talk to. You will get the best of care!
Best dentist ever: honest, trustworthy, and compassionate!
I have always had a great experience coming to this office, Dr. Chicvak and his staff are wonderful.
Great visit. As usual, very little/reasonable wait time. Dr. Chicvac was courteous as always; clearly explained the situation and my options and his recommendation. Overall - very good experience.
Excellent. My whole family goes to this office. I have known Dr. Chickvak for over 30 years.
Excellent dentist!!!!! Recommend highly
You guys are awesome
Just a wonderful dental office. Friendly efficient professional
Thank you as always. Easily the smoothest doctors office i go to. Saverio (i probably misspelled) is awesome.
professional, runs like a well oiled machine.
I returned to the north shore after 30 years living in Ohio. I had a great dentist in Ohio. Fortunately for me, my mother's dentist is Dr. Chicvak. My family had been patients of Dr. Chicvak's predecessor, Dr. Grabelsky. Dr. Chicvak is not only an exceptional dentist, but he is an extremely kind and pleasant person. The office will note your musical preferences, and you will hear what you like at each visit! The staff couldn't be kinder or more accommodating. But the most important aspect of a dentist is the dental care given, and I have found all the technical folks to be professional, responsive and attentive. Couldn't ask for more from a dental practice.
Great first visit! Very personal service. Friendly and attentive office staff. Clean and inviting office. Great hygienist! My exam with Dr. Chichvak was thorough and everything was explained clearly and in a caring manner. He was very prepared. Dr. Chichvak did his homework and read my bio regarding my health and my personal needs when it comes to dental care. I am looking forward to my next visit!
Very pleased with the entire practice. Dr. Chicvak and his entire staff are great. I would highly recommend for all your dental needs.
great operation a+
From the receptionist, hygienist,and dentist my appointment was amazing. They make you feel welcomed and are very personable. You can tell this staff really cares for their patients, and I would recommend Dr. Chicvak to friends family anyone! Thank you very much for all you have done and will do!
Great staff,professional service.
always a great visit! staff wonderful
Staff made me feel welcomed and as for teeth cleaning, it was done very thoroughly and gently. It made me feel very comfortable and with no anxiety about seeing the dentist. Everyone was friendly, courteous and professional.
Everyone is always friendly and Dr Chicvak is the greatest Dentist in the universe !!!
I called for an emergency appointment and asked to be seen the following day. I have been a patient for years and I know the staff is so very accommodating; I also know how busy Dr. Chicvak is and how he does NOT like to have a patient wait in the reception area, so I hesitated to call and "bother" them. But my tongue was all blistered from pain meds I was taking after surgery and it was hard to eat, drink, or brush my teeth. I explained the situation on the phone and (no surprise) was told "Of course we'll fit you in!!!" (Naturally, I was willing to accept ANY time they offered me; they were doing me a HUGE favor!) As always, I was greeted warmly and seated shortly thereafter. Dr. Chicvak came in, gave me an enthusiastic hello, sat down and asked how the surgery went and how I was feeling. One thing I have come to know about my dentist: unlike other medical professionals, he LISTENS with full attention. He's not writing or nodding, he just listens, and makes me feel like I'm the most
important patient in the practice! After I finished speaking he said “Are you drinking enough? Your skin looks very dry to me.” I admitted that I had been sleeping a lot with my meds and I probably wasn’t. He told me to drink as often as I can and not to use any mouthwash because it contains alcohol, which can be very irritating. He examined my mouth and tongue (In all my years I have never had as thorough an examination as Dr. Chicvak gives), told me to go home, drink, rest, and feel better. I know there were other patients waiting to see him, but I never felt rushed. If you need to see the “best and most caring dentist in the world”, do yourself a favor and call for an appointment.
First time visit. Very happy. the service was excellent, I pleasantly surprised by the care & how willing everyone is to explain everything to me (when it comes to dental visits, I'm extremely nervous). But their patience to listen & answer my questions...and it relieved my stress. DR Chivack and his staff are excellent.They are so good at what they do. Office is very bright and clean. Dr. Chicvak and the entire staff are professional, courteous and friendly. This was my first visit and I was extremely pleased with all aspects.
Bright office, very friendly staff
The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. Very professional atmosphere and very clean office. I’m always happy with the service. Thank you always a great experience. My hygienist is the best! Actually look forward to my next appointment
My dental visit was the best from the waiting room to the care I received. I found Dr. Chicvak from a friend my only wish was that I found him 18 years ago! I have an in issue with my tooth for 2 years and my old dentist could not find the problem. Dr. Chicvak diagnosed the problem after one photo xray! I found his care and recommendations the best I have ever received. I found the front desk staff very helpful and knowledgeable. I have to include my dental cleaning was the best I have ever had. Even the hygienist's care and recommendations were the best I have ever received as well. I would recommend this dental office and Dr. Chicvak to anyone considering changing dentist. I only wish I went to him 18 years ago!
Wonderful experience! The dentist and his hygienist Mr. Sylvano provided very painless, pleasant and overall outstanding service! Wait time was less than 1 minute. Thank you so much!
A wonderful visit to the dentist! First visit and would highly recommend!
This practice far and away beats all the other dental offices I've been to. The reception area is neat and orderly, there are no magazines strewn about (obviously the staff is taking great care to assure that the office presents itself perfectly!). The front desk greets me like an old friend, and Silvano, the hygienist, could not have been more gentle. For the first time in my adult life I had some issues with my teeth and gums; Silvano treated me with care and there was no judgement. Dr. Chicvak came into the room, sat down and chatted with me about what was going on in my life, and my overall health; I felt like family! If you or anyone you know has a fear of the dentist, don't hesitate another minute, call and make an appointment!
Awesome doctor and staff. Reception has coffee and water. Doctor is on time. Exceptional quality of service as allways!
Simply put, you can't find a better dental practice! From the staff, to the facilities, to the outstanding professional and personal treatment, I would +100% recommend Dr. Chicvak @dentistrydonebetter.com !!!!
I have berna patient for years and love this office. From the moment you enter the office Dr. C and staff treat you like a valued customer. I’m not even holding it against them that I didn’t get my treasured dental goody bag after this visit. Still my go to for any dental services and I travel 30-40 miles each way.
Dr. Chicvak is extremely talented, his staff very knowledgeable and competent. I highly recommend his practice. My only worry is that he will get too busy! I have a variety of tooth issues, all of which have addressed with careful and compassionate care.
My First visit was awesome.
The greatest doctor ever. Clean, friendly, efficient. It's always a great experience here! Truly appreciate the care and service from every member of the staff! Dr. Chicvak is absolutely the best there is! Appreciate the inclusiveness in the care for our daughter.

Excellent dentist and staff. The hygienist was extremely friendly, good and very thorough! I wouldn't mind having her clean my teeth again! Thank you! Lovely, knowledgeable staff and great dentist!
This office is exceptional! I wish i knew this office sooner. The expertise and friendliness no words can discribe. The top guality sevice! You have to be the patient with many dental problems and terrible prior experience to know and understand this.
7/14/2017 My 33-year-old son is disabled and has been treated by Dr. Chicvak for two months for sleep apnea. In the short 3-week space of time since he began wearing his oral appliance, he has already felt several large effects. No snoring. No need for daytime naps or very late waking up. More energy for daytime tasks. He is very obese and is working with a nutritionist to lose weight. We hope this treatment will also give him support in that regard. This we will come to know later, but it is all is very motivating to him.
In the intake process, RoseMarie was superb, keeping us on track and preparing us for the next steps – paperwork, home sleep test, and dental exam. When the test results were in, she interpreted the various data results in detail with us. He had severe sleep apnea, losing oxygen and technically waking an average of about once every minute.
Dr. Chicvak was very clear and supportive in explaining to him what the oral appliance would do and what the gradual process of jaw muscle adjustment to it meant. It gave him confidence, and he has cooperated with the staff admirably throughout.
I highly recommend this wonderful service for controlling the substantial ill effects of sleep apnea that Dr. Chicvak and his well-trained, friendly staff provide to their patients.
I came in for an emergency with pain in my jaw. Dr. Chicvak was understanding and compassionate and made me feel so much better!!
Prompt service, courteous, Silvano wss thorough and explained changes I need to make to improve brushing
ashley my hygienist was outstanding very gentle and thorough
Always a pleasure to visit this office everyone is friendly and efficient. Both Ashley and Sil are the most gentle and efficient dental hygienist I have ever met! too long the waiting but happy of the friendly environment Clean and bright and the staff is very friendly and pleasant! Very happy with the service. I was"waiting" for this type of office for the last 34 years. Knowlege, comitmennt, ecellence in service.
This is a friendly office, a very knowledgeable, adept, and kind dentist, who creates great outcomes, whether fillings, cleanings, or caps!
Always a friendly, efficient & professional environment. The best dental care in a state-of-the-art office and an outstanding staff. Very professional, friendly and genuinely concerned about their patients. This office has coordinated their office hours to try to be flexible for the needs of the patients. This is a wonderful team of people. Thank you for all you do. While I was scheduled for a cleaning with the dental technician, I was surprised that Dr. C did not do a quick check of my teeth as well.
I am a long standing patient of Dr. Chicvak. Seldom have I seen an office run as efficiently as this one. Over the years, he has always had professional staff and even more importantly, an attitude that is so important in a dentist’s office. The staff is always upbeat and welcoming. There always seems to be time for pleasantries…..no rushing out to get to the next one, i.e. work is done properly and with kindness. Many offices are cool and distant, but everyone here is pleasant…front desk to the boss himself. I’ve had no complaints and Dr. Chicvak has solved problems for me that were perplexing. We are in the process of resolving one now. Thank you all.
I have been a patient for over 20 years and am happy with Dr. Chicvak's exceptional expertise and care. Also am pleased with his assistant.
Wonderful staff, excellent Denist. I always look forward to my appointment because the atmosphere is very calming.
I always have a very positive experience. The staff is friendly and everyone is extremely professional. Forget to get my toothbrush and floss this time!
Always a great experience at Dr. Chicvak's. The new office is beautiful and the staff is great! Had my cleaning with Ashley this time - she was wonderful! Thank you so much!
The quality of care in Dr. Chicvak’s office far exceeds that of any other dental office I have ever been treated at. The staff greets me with a smile each time I come in and makes me feel like I’m part of their family. The office is spotless! Dr. Chicvak always answers my questions in a professional, non-condescending manner, and I never feel rushed when I speak with him.. This is the perfect place for the “dental coward” in all of us!
Great reception staff, wonderful dentist and hygienist, amazing, new technical equipment, excellent cleaning, perfectly ordered visit, clean, neat office and waiting room, amazing ease in making another appointment - altogether, a SUPERB VISIT!!!
A first-rate, friendly and altogether delightful visit.
Had a great experience. Team was welcoming, sincere, and doc was really caring.
The Dentists are so nice. I love this place!
I have had a lot of work done recently from root canals, cleanings, and had my wisdom teeth pulled. I did not feel a thing! Dr. Chicvak is the best and has changed my view on going to the dentist! The whole staff is very helpful and informative. I recommend this dental office for everyone, children and adults!
The office was clean and neat. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The dentist explained everything and was gentle.
As a phobic patient I can absolutely say this was the best dentist appointment I have had. They made me feel as comfortable as possible and nothing was too silly to explain. They narrated the whole experience to me which eased my anxiety. Thank you again.
Dr. Chicvak is fantastic. He is kind, concerned for your well being, and takes the time to talk and listen to you. His office staff and dental assistants are wonderful. Ms. Diana DePalma is a gem!
Office staff was pleasant and personable. Greeted each client by name as they entered. Office was bright and cheerful. Dr. Chicvak took the time to answer all of both my son's and my questions about the work to be done! Only my first visit but I feel like I've meet new family. Would highly recommend to everyone. Especially other parent's of special needs kids and young adults who need that special touch!
Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Attentive and communicated plan and action taken!
Everything was good but I live in Queens so it's a little difficult for me to drive there.
Exemplary dentist, staff, and office. One feels very well cared for, comfortable, "in good hands".
My fiance has been looking for a new dentist and after having come here I referred her and everyone else I know.
Dr. Chicvak and every staff member is/are amazing. I thank each and every one!
Love the service!!

The hygienist gave me the gentlest, yet most thorough, cleaning I've ever had, and the office is spotless! Dr. Chicvak has a very caring chairside manner and explained my needs in very "patient friendly" terms. The entire staff is so warm and friendly, ---they made me feel as if I've known them forever instead of meeting me for the first time. My days of searching for the right dental office are over; I will never leave Dr. Chicvak! June 2015
Excellent as always! June 2015

I highly recommend Dr. Chicvak and his staff. I have been treated by Dr. Chicvak for years and can attest to the excellence in the care he provides.I have never had any problems with any treatment I have received and am always fully informed about the treatment and rational regarding it. A big plus is NO WAITING when you arrive for your appointment! His dental hygienist has been with him for years and is highly competent and professional in his field as well.
Dr. Chicvak teaches dentistry at a large local institution to our next generatin of dentists. This requires time away from private practice as well as keeping up with advances the dental profession. April 2015
We have been Dr. Chicvac's patient for over 2 decades. Apart from being an outstanding Dental Surgeon, he is a very caring, courteous and compassionate health professional we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He makes great efforts that the procedures are painless and the recovery time will be as short as possible. The waiting time before being seen is short and the atmosphere in the waiting room is very relaxing..
His office asssistant Dianne and his Dental assistant, Sylvano are equally professional and easy to deal with.
In summary, a 5 out of 5 stars rating rating!.

He did a wonderful job on my crowns, I can smile and not be ashamed of my teeth!!! I highly reccomend him. May 2015
I'm a scaredy cat. Dr. Chicvak was careful and caring. He and his assistant put me at ease and I was able to proceed with my crown without pain. His staff is the best. Diana and Margarita are alway available to answer my questions and concerns with kindness and a smile! April 2015

great, as usual March 2015
Excellent, caring dental care. In time of need, which was a day the office is normally closed, Dr. Chicvak opened up his practice to me for an emergency situation.
The next business day, which was a Monday, I was surprised to receive a call from Dr. Chicvak's office to ask how I was doing. I've never had any doctor or dentist follow up to find out how I was doing after an office procedure. March 2015
