I felt so safe and comfortable during my first visit at Avenue Dental Arts! Their check-in process with COVID precautions was easy and streamlined. Every person that I interacted with was super friendly, patient, and took the time to explain every step. Having been too nervous to go back to a dentist in 3 years, I’m so glad I started coming to this practice. Dr. Saferin is the best! Thank you!

I’m very nervous when I go to the dentist !!!! I went as a new patient to Dr Best office when you walk into her practice her staff welcomes you… they so nice they gave me a very nice welcome gift to there office. I had an exam and cleaning done. Dr Best is so friendly and gentle and calm me with aroma therapy that she offers to her patients while she takes care off you. The technology in her office is unbelievable. Digital camera xray. I notice that Dr Best cares about the safety off her patients. I love been a patient there.

One of the highlights of 2014 for me was finding Dr Best as a dentist. My wife and I been searching a good dentist ever since I moved to CT. She is by far the best. She is very thorough, professional is not afraid to inform you of what needs to be done. She explains it in a way that is informative and non-conscending. There is no other dentist I will go to as long as I’m in CT.

Dr. Saferin and the team are just wonderful! Everyone will know you by name before long, and greet you like an old friend. They have recently moved into this office and everything is in great shape. (The bathrooms are extra fancy!!) About as relaxing as the dentist can be! Highly recommend!

I started going to Dr Best in 2012 when she saved a tooth that my previous dentist told me would need to be pulled. Now 2 years later, that tooth is still fine. Going to Dr Best’s office is like going to a first class spa, beautiful, relaxing, calming. Dr Best not only provides excellent dental care she takes the time to get to know her patients and their dental needs personally. One way she does this is by personally providing preventative services rather than having this done by an assistant. She is warm, supportive and highly skilled. She is clearly the best dentist that I have ever had. I recommend her highly!

I was referred to Dr.Best over 20 years ago and eventually my husband, both my sons and my sister have become patients of hers. I’ve recommended her to many others and have invited her to come into my office as part of a marketing effort she was trying. In case you can’t tell, I am a big fan of Dr.Best’s and mighty pleased to let people know that. My sister has an intellectual disability and over the years has required some extensive dental work. Dr.Best has always been very caring and understanding of the patience needed to work with my sister, who looks forward to our visits to the office without any hesitation. One son, who now lives in southern CT,still comes to West Hartford to have Dr.Best take care of him. These are my reasons for strongly endorsing Dr.Best,her staff and the professionalism she consistently demonstrates.

I have been coming to Avenue Dental Arts for a few years. Dr. Safrin took over for Dr. David Weil, who had been my dentist for well over 25 years. She is wonderful and very kind, gentle and innovative with the work she does. I have very challenging Issues with my teeth and she has taken over where Dr Weil left off. I loved Dr Weil so this really says something about Dr Safrin.The staff is wonderful also. From Deena at the front desk to Nermina and Donna – they are all amazing! I had a dental cleaning today now that dental offices, during this pandemic, can open. They were so careful and I really felt very comfortable with the precautions that they’ve taken during these difficult times.

I have a great experience with Dr.Best. I went to other dental clinic before and felt disappointed at them. They told me to do the deep cleaning but they even did not it measure my pockets. I came to see Dr. Best for consultation. She explained what the deep cleaning it’s in detail and asked me whether I am willing to do the X-Rey and pocket check. Today Dr. Best did a very professional cleaning and put a lot of effort to remove my stains. She measured my pocket and determined I don’t need to do the deep cleaning since my number is normal within the range. After removing some stains, it’s clearly that I don’t have cavities in those teeth. All staff are very helpful and courteous. Definitely will recommend to other people.

I had an issue during the transition period from my previous dentist to Dr. Saferin and I couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism she has shown. Dr. Saferin was so respectful and attentive throughout the process, really taking the time to listen and address my concerns. You won’t find a more genuine, professional dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Saferin.

Dr. Best and her staff create a relaxing atmosphere. They are so caring and hospitable. They send convenient, friendly reminders for appointments, that make it hard to forget when you have one. It is obvious that they are are truly thankful for their patients, and they show it many ways. Definitely the ~best~ dentist 🙂

This is a wonderful office. I had been a patient of Dr. Weil’s for 40 years and had a lot of trepidation when Dr. Saferin took over. She provides wonderful care and has an efficient and caring demeanor. I appreciate the new technology that she has brought to the practice.The staff is the best. They are sensitive to the patient’s comfort and take time to get to know you personally.They work extremely well together and make going to the dentist a most positive experience.

So very pleased with my experience with Dr. Saferin and her staff. Dr. Saferin, her assistant Nermina, Dina in the front office, and hygienist Michelle were all so warm and welcoming. Each of them took the time to inform me every step of the way, leading to a feeling of comfort and calm. An impressive group.

Dr. Best has been my dentist for 28 years, during which time about half my teeth have been crowned, one was extracted and three were replaced by implants. So I’ve been in her chair a lot. Her patience and sense of humor have made visits to her office as enjoyable as going to the dentist can be. And her work is impeccable. Highly recommended.

I’ve been going to this office for years. I have nothing but positive things to say. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Saferin and my dental hygienist are both excellent at explaining information about my dental health and all required procedures. I always look forward to my dental appointments–I’m not sure how many people can say that!

My husband and I have been clients of this practice for over 20 years. From Dr. Weil to Dr. Safrin, their team has always provided service and care that has been absolutely awesome. Every staff member treats you like you are important, valuable and with respect. This approach to customer service is not common anymore, so I truly appreciate it. I would highly recommend this practice to others!!

I am so glad I found Dr. Best! After moving from D.C. where I was the patient of a top-ten ranked dentist, I had high expectations of finding someone comparable. Dr. Best is not only comparable, but exceeds the care I’ve received in the past. She provides a welcoming environment with an office that is more reminiscent of a spa – right down to a “comforts” menu. I’ve never had a bad or painful experience and Dr. Best pays great attention to detail. My first appointment with her, she noticed a stain on a visible filling that had been bothering me for years. Dr. Best said “You know, I can fix that” and I walked out with a better smile that day. Thanks Dr. Best!

I have been a patient of Dr. Best for over 20 years and I would not have it any other way! She is the “Best” dentist I’ve ever known. She is very professional and caring and when you visit her office it feels more like a home, very welcoming and such a soothing and calm environment. She always takes that extra time to make sure all your needs are met! Thank you Dr. Best for all the years of Excellent Service! -Virginia Feliciano

An attractive and comfortable waiting room, friendly and helpful front desk staff who greet you with warmth, and treatment given by a skilled caring dentist and technical staff all combine to make for a positive dental experience which begins before you even enter the building thanks to a convenient location with ample parking.

I am very happy I chose Dr. Saferin for my dentist. I have severe anxiety whenever I have a dental appointment but the staff is amazing! As soon as I walk in the door I am greeted by the friendly receptionists who are always smiling & so warm they put me right at ease. The dental staff display the same warm welcoming attitude and they are so careful to ensure my comfort throughout the dental procedure. Dr. Saferin is amazing she takes time to ensure that I understand what needs to be done and why she is gentle and very caring. Dr. Saferin also is very precise and accurate performing the dental work she continually monitors how I am doing to ensure I am alright. The dental staff assisting her also checks in with me. This makes my experience less stressful and after a short while I am able to relax. Everyone in this office offers assistance and create a comfortable environment. I leave this office feeling my anxiety really wasn’t warranted because it all went so well!

Dr. Best goes out of her way to insure your comfort, especially if you suffer from “dental anxiety” like I do. She reassures me with every move she makes, explains why something is being done and takes care to carefully diagnose problems. Recently I needed a root canal and she offered a referral that turned out to be a great experience. All around, Dr Best, is the BEST dentist I’ve had in years, if not decades.

Dr. Best and her staff are the great – personable and professional! The office atmosphere is calming and spa like. Dr. Best has up-to-date equipment/technology that she uses to help prevent, identify and treat dental issues. Her travel stories are interesting and help you relax while in the chair. I continue to go to Dr. Best even though I no longer live in CT. Dr. Best is an excellent dentist!
