I recently had implants done, and all procedures were painless and comfortable. I had absolutely delightful visits every time. Thank you for everything! Dr.Michael is an excellent doctor and a wonderful person. He is very thoughtful, gentle, and caring. All staff is helpful, friendly, and welcoming. Very convenient location. The office is clean and bright. Actually, I love everything about this place. Exceptional care. I highly recommend them.

This was my first time coming into Avalon Dental Center, I called ahead due to the fact that I was running pretty late and they told me to come in anyway which was awesome. It happened to be the Hygienist’s (Emily) first day, and she was awesome! Really sweet and friendly, she did an amazing job and kept me laughing and explained things to me and explained what she was doing, I actually felt a difference after the cleaning. The dentist then came in, told me I needed to fillings redone, then did them ten minutes later for me. Everyone in the office was so friendly and accommodating! From the receptionist, to the office manager, the dentist, and the hygienist, overall all awesome. Best dental experience I’ve ever had.

I would like to say thank you to Dr. Ofir and his team for the service and help they provide. I’m a patient of this office since day one. I followed my dentist when he started to work at this location.  This office gives me : quality of dental service, they up to the schedule, they honest, office is very clean and  modern. I have to travel 40-50 minutes from my place for the dental appointment, but I don’t want to change Avalon dental to any local places.

Chris W. from Malden, MA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr Ofir for roughly 4 years, beginning shortly after he opened his location in Cambridge. With a variety of needs, Dr Ofir and I formulated a plan to address required dental work, including: cavities/fillings, root canals and crowns (Dr Ofir specializes in crowns and he takes great pride them). We executed on a time-line that worked with my budget and maximized my insurance coverage. Most recently, I completed an invisalign treatment, addressing some unwanted spacing and tooth placement. I could not be happier with the improvements he has provided to my smile, and my over all oral health. 5 stars. two thumbs up. worth every penny 🙂

I started coming to this place a couple of years ago. I was in big trouble with my teeth, and this was the place that helped me save them. The environment of the waiting lounge is well-kept, and brightly-lit. I know that there are a lot of people out there that are anxious about going to the dentists, and how a dark and dingy office might raise a few red flags. The staff are really professional, courteous, and I feel are genuinely pleasant. Also, the equipment and methods of dentistry that are used is state-of-the-art. I decided to get braces (again), and I don’t dread the monthly follow-ups. The experience is completely different to what it was then, and I want to say that was 15 years ago. Dr. Ofir is a one-of-kind, and has an amazing sense of humor that will lighten up any anxiety that you may feel about the visit. I’ve also had Dr. Katta, both of which are very knowledgeable in their fields and will be able to answer your questions/concerns in a concise and respectful manner. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place.

Dean Y. from Vernon, VT (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr Michael Ofir from my sister who got her Veneers done by him. She wouldn’t stop talking about him and he changed her life so I decided to do the same. Honestly it has been the best decision of my life. I was always extremely self conscious about my smile and how weird my teeth look. I know have the most beautiful smile I love my Veneers and I owe it all to Dr. Ofir, Ben and Tanya! They’re an all star team and it was just an overall amazing experience. Thank you Avalon Dental Center!

Angela B. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


I had my wisdom teeth extracted here by Dr. Ofir. It was a great experience. Dr. Ofir made me feel calm before the procedure and answered all my questions, which was great because I was a bit nervous going into it. The procedure itself went really smoothly. I didn’t feel a thing. The best thing was after the procedure Dr. Ofir went through the whole process to me and gave me his contact information, saying I could contact him at any point for questions. It is really great having a dentist who is so available to his patients. I would definitely recommend Avalon dental center to anyone looking for a dentist.

Stephen D. from Malden, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’m very happy with Avalon Dental Center.  I started coming to them a couple of years ago after not going to a dentist for many years.  I had a pretty strong fear of dentists at the time.  I finally had no choice but to go and a friend recommended this place to me.  I was pleasantly surprised by Dr Ofir and his staff.  They are all very friendly and professional.  I was immediately put at ease when I saw how important the patient’s comfort is to Dr Ofir.  He always explains everything he is doing every step of the way and will answer any questions I have.  I had my first root canal done here and I was terrified given the reputation of root canals for being extremely painful.  It ended up being virtually pain free.  I was so comfortable that I actually started falling asleep during the procedure!  Dr Ofir has done amazing work on me.  I had so many issues (cavities, root canals, wisdom teeth, etc) and after following a treatment plan over the last couple of years at Avalon, my teeth are perfect.  I am not afraid of the dentist anymore!

Freitas A. from Belmont, MA (Source: Yelp)


I want to start this review by saying how amazing Dr Michael Ofir is. I’m so impressed and happy by the quality of his work. I was able to schedule an appointment for the  same day. I needed a filling on my front tooth, he made me feel very comfortable and told me he would take care of it that day. He walked me trough everything he was doing, he made sure I was fine. After he was done with the filling he gave me a mirror to look at, and asked me if I liked it, and I loved it. He is the kind of dentist that really cares about your smile.The office is nice and clean, the receptionist were very nice and helpful. I honestly had an amazing experience, I highly recommend anyone to go see Dr Micheal Ofir.

Luis H. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


This is a great practice. It’s so easy to book an appointment that works perfectly with my schedule. I’ve gotten my work done here and I am completely satisfied. I leave the office extremely happy and more confident about my smile. The prices are fair and aren’t putting a hole in my pocket. The entire staff is very friendly and professional.  My previous dentists would just sit me down and tell me what I needed. Here, they take the time to make sure I understand every procedure I need done. They build a friendly relationship with mem, taking their time to get to know me a little bit personally. Before scheduling my appointment they always let me know how much time it would take and it really never takes any longer than that. This practice works well with my insurance company and I never have any problems in that department. Before my appointments they also send me reminders to confirm. Such as, phone calls, emails and texts. I, myself, prefer a text and that’s exactly what they’ll do for my reminder. Love this practice and would recommend going here if you’re looking for a new dentist!

Iris D. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Avalon Dental Center in Cambridge, very much in pain. I saw Dr. Ofir, one of the dentists there. The entire staff treated me well and made me feel very comfortable. Explained my issue and treated it right away. I was very grateful to Dr. Michael Ofir as he is very knowledgeable and caring for his patients. I would recommend Avalon. Great job! Thank you. – Iris Davis

Anna P. from Stoneham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve recently had 3 crowns put into place, as my old fillings had been cracking and falling apart. From the appointment setting, reminders, and check in, this place is one of the most pleasant dental experiences I have ever had in my twenty odd years of reluctant tooth treatment in the Boston area. The office equipment is safe and sterile. It is also modern and based on the latest patient-safety and equipment efficiency research. From the safety eyeglasses that I was given during my session, the relaxing and confident attitude of the doctor and his assistant, the assurance and detailed explanation of each procedure, the IntraOral Camera that allowed me to see exactly what my dentist was seeing and facilitated my decision in moving forward with the needed procedure. Even the crowns that the doctor sent out to the lab fit perfectly. I appreciate how knowledgeable Dr. Ofir is about his field and how passionate he is about not just dentistry, but top quality dentistry and patient satisfaction. I recommend him without hesitation.

During CV-19, Dr. Ofir & his staff were super helpful and walked me through an issue via video. Dr. Ofir was fast, professional, warm, and helpful. Just a day later after following his advice, my tooth feels better. And I didn’t have to leave my house – thank you again. Really appreciate the flexibility and accommodation.

Afi O. from Everett, MA (Source: Yelp)


Came here for my wisdom tooth removal. Dr. Ofir was friendly and very compassionate, he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He did EXCELLENT work! The staff is friendly and very helpful as well. I’m beyond happy that I’ve found a place so accommodating! Would recommend this dental office to everyone!

Joselyn R. from Medford, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this dental center for years and I’ve wouldn’t go anywhere else. The office is clean and so friendly! once you walk in you are greeted by the lovely Adrienne and the fabulous assistant Melissa. I’ve recently had a implant procedure done by Dr. Ofir and he was amazing during the whole thing. I highly recommend this place especially if you are really nervous about visiting a new dentist!!!

Elena A. from Malden, MA (Source: Yelp)


I got a crown done by Dr. Ofir recently. He did an amazing job. It looks like my natural tooth, you can’t even tell its a crown. I wish every dentist was that good. I was seen on time because I prepaid for my appointment. I’m glad I did, because I wouldn’t even go to the dentist if I didn’t and my teeth wouldn’t look as good as they do. It’s worth it.

Vanessa Dutra (Source: Facebook)


This is honestly one of the best dentists I have ever been to, and I’ve been to many. The whole team is absolutely amazing and I actually look forward to my dentist visits now. From the moment you walk in, the receptionists are so warm and welcoming. The dentists and the dental heigenist are incredibly knowledgable and have earned my trust. You can tell the team truly enjoys their job and working together. I’m even planning on bringing my Father, who has dimentia, in to see them. The heigenist was kind enough to suggest that they give him a longer appointment at a time where he is less anxious, and that we could cut his appointment into seperate app.s if he starts to feel uncomfortable or nervous. They are so accomedating and I very much appreciate that. I’m glad that my long search for a great Dentist’s office is over! A+ Love! 5 stars

Keila C. from Andover, MA (Source: Yelp)


To start I never write reviews but I do read a lot of them and take them into consideration. So with that I had to stop and write one for Avalon Dental Center. Dr. Ofir was amazing I am literally writing this walking out from the building with two wisdom teeth removed, in under I would say five minutes. Dr. Ofir made me feel very comfortable he made me laugh and he took away any nervousness I had. He moved at my pace and did not rush me until I was ready. All the staff there are very friendly and welcome you with such beautiful smiles. I had only came here to take out my wisdom teeth because they were the dentist office that would take me a soon as possible but now I definitely will be switching and making them my family’s permanent dentist office. I can honestly say I can’t wait for next month to take my other wisdom teeth out. Thanks for a great experience under the circumstances!

Adam C. from South Boston, Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ofir has been my dentist for about a year now. The staff is super friendly and Dr. Ofir makes sure I know exactly what is happening through all stages of my dental procedures, both from a medical and financial sense. He even made a pair of extractions as pain-free as humanly possible! They’ve been very open and transparent with me about what my insurance will cover and worked with me to arrange payment on a better timeline for my wallet. A+ practice for me, I’m sticking with Avalon.

Tamika B. from Somerville, MA (Source: Yelp)


i am the type of person who hates dental work and crappy service. Dr. Ofir was the best. he greeted me, he didnt make fun of the fact that i am 28 and terrified of needles and dentists. Dr. Ofir took great care of my wisdom teeth extracion. He even had me laughing as he stitched my gums shut. Awesome dentist with great assistants and an impeccably clean and friendly office

Serena G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s really hard to find a new dentist when you get settled in a new city, but I am so thankful that I was introduced to Dr. Ofir. I went to see him for a bi-annual check-up, where I received x-rays and a cleaning. Dr.Ofir personally cleaned my teeth in a gentle way. Since I have very sensitive teeth, he also made some great recommendations on products. For those who are scared of going to see the dentist, he disarms his patients with his friendly personality. Not only that, he’ll communicate what he’s going to do, and how he’s going to do it so that there are no surprises. I highly recommend Avalon Dental Center in Cambridge and his helpful staff. My trip to the dentist was efficient and pleasant!

Kristina R. from Newton Highlands, Newton, MA (Source: Yelp)


I had such a wonderful experience with Avalon Dental. After moving to the Cambridge, I hadn’t yet found a new dentist. One of my friends told me about this place, and I felt so comfortable the moment I walked into the office!
I didn’t know what to expect as first time customer but the service was great. Dr. Ofir was extremely knowledgeable and professional.  Just amazing! Staff is great too. And the office is super clean with a nice atmosphere. Definitely recommending them!

Andrew S. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Hello, my friends! And Merry Christmas to everyone and my new friend Ben from Avalon Dental Center!though Ben was not my doctor but a manager in this center , believe me now I could understand how much depends on a good manager in dental clinic. Most of the reviews are about dentists but I want to say thank you to Ben, as he helped me a lot when a problem occurred with my insurance.  He was like an hour over the phone with my insurance company and did his best to solve all the problems! Ben is not only a professional manager but also a kind person who is ready to help you.

Cristina A. from Danvers, MA (Source: Yelp)


I used to avoid going to dentist… so much so that I had few dental areas that needed to be addressed by the time I found Avalon Dental. I met with Dr. Ofir and I felt at ease right away and have stayed with him and his office for over 4 years. I can’t say enough about Dr. Ofir, he is very patient, kind, gives me the time I need during my appointments and I never have to wait when I arrive. I’m very satisfied with any and all the work I have had done. His staff is amazing and the office/ treatment rooms are all new and super clean. I highly, highly recommend Avalon Dental.

Sumbul N. from Ashland, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Micheal Ofir is one of the most caring dentists I have ever been to. He recently did an implant on my husband and it was so nice when we got a call from him and not his receptionist or assistant to check up on him later on that night. The office has a very pleasant environment and we had a really good experience there. His expert advice was very good and he was able to explain everything to us very well. Thank you Dr. Ofir for your excellent care!

Samantha R. from Waltham, MA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been having some trouble finding a new dentist who took my insurance. I came across Avalon Dental Center online and gave them a call to see if they took my insurance and they did. So I immediately made an appointment as soon as possible before the year ended so I could use up the rest of my insurance money. My previous dentist had issues with billing my insurance. Avalon Dental Center handled the whole financing part of my treatment and answered all questions that I had. My cleaning was great and quick! I met the doctor and he was very friendly and professional. They don’t try to upsell anything. The doctor told me everything I needed to get done and I appreciated their honesty. The office is spotlessly clean and it is very quiet. It was a pleasant experience for me. The only thing I had to do was pay, and sit in the chair. So simple and easy. No worrying about insurance or anything!

Leila G. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Avalon Dental Center was great. The office is clean and comfortable. Booking an appointment is very easy for me, they accommodated to my schedule. The staff was very friendly and enthusiastic. The work The Hygenist and doctor do is thorough and I am completely satisfied . I would definitely recommend Avalon Dental Center.

Rebecca S. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


This review is based on two appointments at Avalon Dental. My first appointment was standard check up, teeth cleaning and X-rays. The office is very clean, all new equipment, lots of sun light and comfy chairs! In one of the X-rays, the dentist found (do not remember his name) a wisdom tooth. Up until then, I had assumed I didn’t not have any, they were never found in any previous X-rays from my other dentists. Since my wisdom tooth didn’t bother me nor did I know I had one, the dentist recommend I come back if I ever start to feel pain. The remainder of my appointment went well, the dentist took a lot of time examining my teeth, bit, gums etc.. he was also very informative. Last week, only a few months after my first appointment, I started to feel an enormous amount of pain from my wisdom tooth. I made an appointment and they took me the next day at lunch. I was lucky, since I could barely chew any solid foods. Dentist Michael Ofir met with me for my consultation, he scheduled a tooth extraction for 5 later that day. My tooth had been partially impacted, Dr. Ofir informed me I would not need to go under. Dr. Ofir was very patient with me through the entire procedure. He took his time in injecting Novocain, and explained to me with each injection what I would feel during and after. 5 shots later, I was pretty numbed up and comfortable to have him extract my tooth. IT took about 20 seconds for the tooth to come out and I did not feel and discomfort what so ever! He explained to me how to take care of my mouth and expected I should be ok to go back to work the next day. Dr. Ofir was nice enough to give me his cell number, just incase, of any emergencies. Needless to say, I’ve experienced little pain and minimal swelling and I did not need to call him. Overall, I’ve had great experiences at Avalon Dental

Juanita H. from Somerville, MA (Source: Yelp)


Avalon dental is a great establishment! I went there twice this week for a cleaning and consultation and then the next day to get all four wisdom teeth removed. All the staff in both the Cambridge and Somerville offices are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. My doctor put my mind at ease and walked me thru every step of the cleaning and what to expect for the extractions the following day. Both procedures went wonderfully although I was mostly nervous about having teeth taken out. Dr. Ofir skillfully and briskly took all four of my wisdom’s out. He set me up with proper medication and outpatient home care as well as the office numbers to contact him. Avalon dental is a wonderful place where the Dr. and staff care about your dental health and take great care and skill in doing procedures the right way with the least amount of pain and recovery. I would recommend this office to all
