I have been a patient at Babcock Dental for years.  I have moved away and I still come back.  It just feels like family there.  They are so kind and wonderful.  Earlier this year, I had a wedding to shoot and wouldn’t you know it, I developed an abscess tooth and my lip became numb the day of the wedding, Dr. Kureichyk prescribed an antibiotic to get me through not only the wedding but the weekend until I could get into the office.  She not only made my day, but saved the day for the bride and groom!

I’ve been going to Babcock Dental for several years. Everyone there is very professional and friendly! My dental hygienist, Chelsea, does a fantastic job with my cleaning and is always pleasant. I always feel comfortable asking Dr. Tovissi questions and completely trust her. I highly recommend Babcock Dental for your dental care!!

I hadn’t gone to a dentist in years because dentists made me VERY nervous. I started going to Babcock Dental and was so relieved. The staff is so kind and friendly! Chelsea has been cleaning my teeth for years and she is the best- I don’t even get nervous anymore. Dr. Kureichyk has been wonderful as has Dr. Tovissi. They also are the reason I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (everyone had high blood pressure at the dentist but mine was really high!) if you are a nervous person looking for kind people to work on your teeth I recommend Babcock Dental

This practice is wonderful! After many years with another dental office, I began treating with Babcock Dental Center last year. I had no idea how efficient, organized, & reasonably pleasant a dental appointment could be. EVERYone is very professional. The office is super clean & comfortable with up to date technology. It’s a real plus that all staff members are very friendly!

This is THE best dental office I have ever been to. I’m a senior citizen and afraid of dentistry since bad childhood experiences. This all female operated practice is wonderful. Everyone is smiling, comforting, efficient yet very friendly. Most importantly, they know what they’re doing and are VERY good at it!! I highly recommend them!

Going to the dentist is about as high up on my fun list as colonoscopies, eating green peppers, and attending a Justin Bieber concert. I can’t imagine anyone loves it. That said, the team at Babcock dental make the experience, well, not hell. The staff is infectiously perky, Dr. Tovissi is a delight, and Shannin is my homegirl. They don’t try to oversell you on unneeded procedures, they’re merciful with that angry looking silver pick, and they won’t shame you TOO much when you’re honest about your less-than-stellar flossing habits. Overall, they are five-stars for going to the dentist. Still better than the Beebs. And if all else fails, Sieb’s is next door, so you can drink it off.

Shannon (hygienist) is my Person of the Year!  After going to a dentist in California for my past 2 cleanings, Shannon discovered that they had not done a thorough job on my mouth… at all.  This created an extra challenge for her but she went above and beyond to get everything that had been left behind by the California hygienist and then some.  Talk about setting the bar high in dentistry!  Thank you Shannon and everyone at Babcock, I trust you all completely!

Every single appointment and experience I have had with Babcock Dental has been nothing short of excellent. From the office staff to the dentists, they are friendly and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way. Even the need to implement new sanitization and distancing procedures due to COVID-19 has not impacted they great job they always perform.

Dr. Tovissi is absolutely amazing! I had some horrible experiences with the dentist growing up and as a result I’ve always had such a fear of going. She really puts you at ease and most of all she cares about her patients. I HIGHLY recommend Babcock Dental! I had another appointment yesterday. It was last minute and lasted over 4 hours. As always Dr. Tovissi was amazing. She is always checking to make sure I’m comfortable and explains everything she’s doing. I would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone

I’ve had lots of fillings done over the years, but my experience at Babcock Dental has been my best experience by far. It was a pain free, even once the numbness wore off, took only took 35 minutes, and my bite is perfect! The ladies at Babcock are amazing. They are close staff that work like a happy well oiled machine. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Pittsburgh area.

I went here the other day for my first appointment. I was looking for a new dentist in the area and am thrilled I found them. They got me in as a new patient soon thanks to a cancelation. The service was wonderful and friendly from the front desk, to the dental assistant, to the dentist herself. They were incredibly kind, friendly, and warm. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and have already told a few people to try them if they’re looking for a dentist! Everything was clean, fresh, and impressive as far as the facility goes as well.

They really are the best dentist I have ever been to. I have many many issues with my teeth and most times when I visit a dentist they just jump right in and start the root canals and fillings. This was not the case with Babcock Dental. My first appt was just an evaluation, they discussed all of my issues and started immediately with a game plan of preventative maintenance. My second appt started with the dentist sitting down with me with a packet of my entire treatment plan, the approximate cost and how many appts I would need. Since nothing was actually bothering me, she started with correcting my chipped tooth and the cavity right next to it that was noticeable. It was about making me feel comfortable smiling again. Since then I have been back for many treatments, they have state of the art equipment. I truly know I am cared for and my teeth are getting better and I am taking better care of them. They are even helping me contact my congressman because my insurance will not pay for my deep cleanings which I so desperately needed. This practice is amazing, wonderful people, intelligent well trained staff. If you are in the North Hills of Pittsburgh looking for a dentist, I cannot recommend them enough!

I just love Babcock Dental Office. The entire staff here is awesome & fun!! They’re always happy to see you, friendly and very personable. I actually look forward to all of my visits. I have been a patient for over 9 years and have recommended this office to all of my friends & family. 4 out 5 patients recommend Babcock Dental 🙂

B-E-S-T in the business! I have been to several dentists in my life, but now I am done looking! Dr. Tovisi was wonderful – she actually took time to provide me with a detailed and thorough exam. I have never had this service anywhere else. Also, the hygienist Emily, provided an alternative way of cleaning my teeth to accommodate my horrible “gag reflex!” She was gentle and calmed my any nerves I had when I walked through the door. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. Thanks Babcock Dental!

This was my first time at Babcock Dental Center and it is safe to say I have found a new dentist that I am happy to stick with. The staff were all so friendly and it was great to have a dentist with the same Alma Mater! 🙂 I would recommend this for any families or individuals that are searching for a new dentist.

Dr. Tovissi worked pure dental magic on my severely chipped tooth. A pure professional in every aspect! She also made a noticeable improvement on my jaw that has been clicking and bugging me for years. Thank you!!!

Pamela Rearick (Source: Facebook)


Absolutely the best dental office! I have been to a few and you know when you leave the office, you think did I get a good cleaning because it doesn’t feel that I did. At Babcock Dental, I feel clean and refreshed. A thorough cleaning and check up each and every time. The staff is friendly, always a smile to greet me and the wait time is so minimal that I never get a chance to read a magazine article. Dr. Tovissi is excellent with any work that I have needed done. She is always making sure I am ok, that things are good with me during any procedure. Highly recommend this office!!

Emily, my Dental Hygienist, did a phenomenal job cleaning and polishing my teeth today! She had her work cut out for her as this was the first time in four years and a month ago (as my wife always says… Life got in the way). I can honestly say my teeth feel today as though I had just just had them cleaned four months and a day ago without skipping all that time!

Dr. Tovissi has given me the best dental care I have ever experienced since 2013. Through the years I have found her to be very professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate as well as gentle and respectful. I also appreciate how she keeps her office up-to-date with the latest dental technology such as crown replacements in one day and the Zoom teeth whitening treatment. The dental hygienist, Sharon does an excellent job cleaning my teeth and gives me several educational tips for my oral care. The professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff is outstanding. I highly recommend Babcock Dental Center.

I went to Babcock Dental for the first time last week and was so pleased with my experience there! From signing in at reception with Chelsea, to consulting with Dr. Tovissi, to meeting with Emily, my dental hygienist, everyone was friendly, kind, professional, and made me feel so welcome! I would highly recommend this practice to anyone!

Evgenia K. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I came there 2 month ago as a new patient and had  an absolutely awesome experience. The staff was very sweet, polite and friendly. They really took time to get to know me. Dr. Kureichyk that treated me was very nice, thorough, and professional. I’m definitely coming back to this office for further treatment. Office itself – very clean, fresh, and cozy. Convenient location, easy to find.

This is my first visit to Babcock Dental since the pandemic started. I felt very comfortable with the safety procedures they have in place for both my safety and theirs. As alway, I had a great cleaning and checkup. The staff and dentists are very efficient and nice. I’m a 20 + years patient.

Very nice staff. They do great work. They take the time to figure out our somewhat complicated primary and secondary’s insurance situation and then only bill us for what’s not covered. All and all I’m quite happy with their team, approach, and policies. I’ve been using them for about 4-5 years now with no complaints.

The best dental practice that I have had the pleasure to visit. Professional, knowledgeable, informative, patient friendly, courteous, efficient. The doctor and staff are all of the above. The office is super clean and every precaution is taken to assure patient and staff safety. If your looking for an outstanding dental practice, Babcock Dental is the place

This is by far the best dentist’s office I’ve ever been to. I’ve moved around the US quite a lot, so I’ve been to several different ones. I’m so glad that I’m finally settled because I never want to go to a different dentist. First, they are extremely personable and friendly, from start to finish. Before the doctor even starts the exam, she just chats for a few minutes to get to know you and explain everything and answer any questions. You don’t feel rushed at all. Second, the doctor is the one who actually performs the cleaning. That’s a first for me. It was the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had and I learned things about my teeth that I never learned in all my 36 years of going to dental cleanings twice a year. My husband is the one who found this office first and referred me. I’m so glad he did. We both had different doctors at the office, but had the exact same experience. They even mailed us both thank you cards afterwards, and sent him a referral gift card. Overall, I haven’t ever been to a dentist’s office I would recommend as highly as this one. I’ve had bad experiences at dentists, to include 2 others in Pittsburgh. I would drive out of my way to go back here.

Babcock dental is in a very nice convenient location. The office is beautiful & sparkling clean, but our favorite part is the staff. It’s so nice that we do not have to take our young daughter to a separate place. They are wonderful with kids and we all look forward to going. They book me & my daughter at the same time which is super convenient And Shannon makes my teeth feel amazingly clean and they look so white! We love it there!

Everyone at Babcock dental is so nice. I received a booklet with a plan of action with the estimated costs of each procedure (I had several concerns I wanted to address including straightening my teeth.) The booklet was easy to read with all the information I needed. This is given on your second visit if you are addressing issues after your initial visit. Everything was very transparent. Both dentists are friendly and they truly want to know YOU. They will make you feel comfortable and answer all your questions. I moved to New Castle and I would rather drive 50 min to their office than find a new dentist.

Wow, lucky me!! I found the best dentist I have ever gone to! The office atmosphere is so calming and well decorated. I felt like I was part of the family. The staff is so friendly and professional. Modern equipment and great service. First time I ever felt like I wasn’t a number and asked me my thoughts during my whole visit!! I highly recommend you get your next cleaning there.

I highly recommend Dr. Joanne Tovissi and her amazing staff. They are caring, efficient and highly professional. Dr. Joanne is exceptionally good at what she does. She never forgets that there is a person connected to an ailing tooth. She takes the time to explain to you what she is about to do and then stops often during the procedure to ask if you are in any pain. (I wasnt!) Your comfort and piece of mind are extremely important to her and her staff. She and her staff go the extra mile to accommodate their patients. If you haven’t been to a dentist in a while or suffer from dental anxiety (like me), then this is the practice that you want to use. Their friendliness and expertise will put your mind to rest quickly. Thanks so much!

This was my first visit to Babcock Dental Center. Dr Tovissi is very thorough, informing me of everything she was doing during her examination of me and explaining why. Then Emily cleaned my teeth and polished them. My mouth felt clean and refreshed when I left. I would highly recommend Babcock Dental Center.

A work colleague recommended here after I mentioned I was looking for a second opinion on some dental work. We are so glad we took them up on the recommendation! Through numerous appointments they’ve been the most detail-oriented, caring, and honest practice that we’ve been to. We can’t recommend them enough. Take care of your teeth!

The staff at Babcock Dental Center are the best around. I have had negative dental experiences in the past, which has kept me from seeing a dentist for years. When I had a problem tooth, I knew I needed to be seen. I contacted Babcock Dental Center and they were able to get me in right away, even as a new patient. All the staff, from the front desk personnel to the doctors are extremely nice and willing to go above and beyond to help you. Dr. Tovissi spent time getting to know me and I could tell she genuinely cared about my fears and concerns. The care they provide at this office is world-class. I simply cannot recommend them enough.

I cannot express how wonderful this practice is! Brought my very “dental fearful “ daughters here and Dr. Joann and the whole staff put them at ease. Both left saying that this was the best dentist visit ever. They take the time to listen to your concerns and thoroughly explain the treatment plan. My daughters were informed what was happening the entire time. Chelsea had my youngest giggling by the time we left….she was in tears when we got there, so that says a lot! Thank you!!!

Ronald Sudo (Source: Google)


Dr. Joanne and staff are beyond wonderful. I never have felt more comfortable or at home in a dental office. She solved my tooth pain with a simple five minute procedure. They really take lots of time to communicate with you and make sure all of your needs are satisfied. Don’t hesitate to book your appointment!
