PATIENT REVIEWS

Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Jocelyn H. from Roslindale, MA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I just finished a 21 month Orthodontic procedure – with Dr. Cartsos as my orthodontist. She and her team are amazing; her perfectionism is what drives her to deliver the best care and get you the best outcome! They were consistently pleasant, even when I was cranky (due to the fact that I hated having to have braces but I had put it off until I was an adult.) she listens to you, her staff are compassionate and i could not be happier with the results. At times it felt like a bridge and tunnel project in my mouth but that was because they were moving a LOT of things around. Well done – I’m happy as can be because my teeth look amazing!!

Great experience. My entire family and I have been doing dental clean at this facility in the last 15yrs, as well as other dental work (night guard, invisalign…). Staff are friendly and professional, appointments are timely. During the current covid pandemic, they kept social distancing and took additional measures to ensure patient and staff safety.

★★★★★

The entire staff at Convivial Dental is very professional and friendly. My kids and I all go there twice a year for cleanings and any dental work needed. All the hygienists do a wonderful cleaning of our teeth and we leave with our teeth feeling squeaky clean. Recently, I had a cavity filled and the dentist did such a great job by being so gentle that I did not have any discomfort during or after the filling. I am very pleased with the service my family has been receiving at Convivial Dental.

★★★★★

Convivial Dental is a fantastic dental office. I highly recommend it because of all the new technologies that the doctors use to make me feel healthy and comfortable. After years in braces I ended up with perfectly straight teeth but my gums were not so healthy and I had to have a laser gingivectomy. Perfect technique and no discomfort. Two weeks later my gums look so much better! Healthy and happy! Thank you

Convivial Dental is an exceptional practice that is run by exceptionally competent human beings. The administrative staff is courteous and flexible. Nurses are well versed, competent, and caring. I appreciate their caring attitude in explaining how to be safe and conscious about safety and sharing their domain knowledge about safety. Dr. Vicky Cartsos is an exceptional human being. She is always generous with her time and knowledge. I developed a gap in my teeth and went to Dr. Cartsos. I listened to her advice, which is hard to ignore – she is an exceptional and caring human being. Thanks to her efforts, the gap closed. I will always be grateful.

Convivial indeed, they are all friendly and helpful. The doctors and staff give personal attention, they get to know people’s names and background, they show flexibility and good will when needed. The atmosphere is always nice, with decorations for holidays and good humor. Going to the dentist or orthodontist can sometimes be unpleasant and expensive, but they do what they can to make it easier. Good professionals, good people !

★★★★★

This office is awesome. Went as a new patient and the front desk helped me with all my insurance Information made it very clear on coverages. The assistant staff was very knowledgeable in all aspects. I would recommend this office to everyone one -Dr Cartsos and Dr Zavras make a great team!!

If you are hesitating about getting braces, do so no more!! You have found your Orthodontist, Dr Vicky Cartsos here. I was in my 40’s when I started my dream to straight teeth. Dr Cartsos patiently walked me through all of the options and most importantly listened to specific concerns I had. We eventually chose braces vs Invisalign due to the issues with my particular teeth. I had to get a tooth removed and she swiftly helped me through that process. The Orthodontic Assistants were attentive every single visit and were sure to explain each change I was seeing. This is an office that strives on excellence, kindness and care. I can’t recommend Convivial Dental enough! I’m so pleased with the outcome (braces just came off today!).

Dr. Cartsos did an amazing job with my child’s orthodontic treatment. The teeth are straight, aligned, and just beautiful! She and the whole staff are friendly + responsive to parents and know how to put the kids at ease for treatment. I highly recommend Convivial Dental for both ortho treatment and regular dental check-ups.

★★★★★

We were referred by our current dentist because my 4 year old has a cavity. We had the best experience! The hygienist was wonderful with my daughter and got her to sit for x-rays, and explained everything to her so she wasn’t scared. The dentist then came in and explained the entire process and the options when it came to filling her cavity. I was so impressed with the office and would highly recommend!

★★★★★

I bring my 5 children to Convival Dental for check ups and for orthodontic treatment. We have always, with no exception, had the best experience. Dr. Cartsos, Dr. Zavras and their team are highly professional, dedicated, and trustworthy people. Me and my daughter recently finished our orthodontic treatment with Dr. Cartsos and are both 100% happy with the results. I would highly recommend them!

★★★★★

Dr Cartsos is an incredible orthodontist. She is both caring, professional, and an expert in her field. I had a major tooth stuck way up in my gum from my teenage years. She designed a painless 2.5 year invisilign treatment, checking with me every 8 weeks to make sure my treatment was successful. After a year and a half the trays stopped fitting and my bite was off, they rescanned and redeveloped my trays at no extra cost, after which my teeth were aligned and I could have my first confident smile as an adult. I was happy to know Dr Cartsos gurenteed my satisfaction with the treatment. I’ve referred multiple friends to her care and couldn’t recommend them enough to anyone who wants to the best orthodontist care in Boston.

This was the first time we met with Deidre and I must say she is so kind, patient and engaging with my child. I loved how she allowed her to make choices and even help with the cleaning by mixing the vitamins and operating the saliva sucker aka “Mr. Thirsty” herself. I am grateful my children have such positive experiences there and that they look forward to seeing the dentist. From personal experience, my negative childhood encounters with dentists have always led me astray from regular check-ups. So thank you for setting up a successful path for my kids to having healthy teeth!

The staff here are just wonderful!! My daughter just got her braces on and Dr. Cartos and Nichole made her feel so comfortable. They explained everything as they were doing it. Thank you for going above and beyond!!! We highly recommend Convivial Dental

Great experience every time! Efficiency at the highest level at every level from the front desk staff to the providers and their support team! Fast service with no compromise on the quality of care! Highly recommend this clinic for all ages!

★★★★★

Our daughter Emma loves going to see Dr. Cartsos and her staff. They are always super friendly and makes our daughter super comfortable. High-tech, clean, great finance manager! Kathy took the initiative of checking with our insurance to see whether if the procedure was covered. Thanks to the Convivial Dental team!

★★★★★

If we could give 6 stars We would, our only regret is we just found out about this great practice when our fourth child needed braces. Dr Vicky Cartsos recommended Invisalign to us rather than the conventional braces. What a great suggestion! Invisalign was so much easier with better results than conventional braces. The staff were so helpful and caring the office has a real family atmosphere. We highly recommend this practice and Dr Vicky for a great experience all around. Such a great find for our family compared to our last practice who quiet simply were there just for the $$ At Vickys practice you are treated like family, and she will know your Name .

The service is excellent, the staff is friendly, the dentist is incredibly talented. They have a play area, they handle my toddler in a way no one else can, she’s afraid of dentist office, but they provide the best atmosphere possible, they let her choose what animal balloon she wants, they give her stickers, princess toothbrush, toothpaste and kids dental floss. I HIGHLY recommend Convivial Dental to anyone!

★★★★★

My daughter is a patient of Dr. Cartsos. We travel almost an hour (depending on traffic) to see her but it is absolutely worth it. We used to go to the the different orthodontist but had many complications. Dr. Cartsos started from the beginning, changed every single wire and bracket and did an amazing job fixing her problem. We are very grateful and highly recommend her to anyone who needs orthodontic care

Tracey F. from Dedham, MA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Ever time I go for an appointment it is a fabulous experience. Dr. Cartsos is warm and cares about her patients. In addition, she is very professional and a great orthodontist. Her treatment completely transformed my child’s smile. Every time we had a dental emergency (broken bracket or loose wire) Dr. Cartsos immediately would accommodate us. The doctors there are true professionals. I always trust their opinions and never doubt their procedures. Also, the place is friendly and inviting with a children’s play area and a classy waiting room. Going to the dentist has transformed from a task to a luxury thanks to this practice. I highly recommend to anyone who seeks professional care and overall great dentistry.

Ellen T. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This is a small family-type practice created by a husband and wife who are specialized dentists and some of the best known dental scientists in the country. Just look at all their certificates in the waiting room. They have written so many articles about new advances in dentistry and i am impressed with all the great technologies they offer. I am an adult who has chronic fear of the dentist – yet they make me feel comfortable and i even dare to do invisalign orthodontics at the age of 30+ . They are both very busy but it is worth the wait.

J W. from Chestnut Hill, MA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My two children are patients of orthodontist Dr. Vicky Cartsos and pedodontist Dr. Zavras. They both have put together a great dental team that is caring and fun. Just see their facebook page around Halloween! In addition Dr. Zavras is professor and chairman of pediatric dentistry at Boston University and knows all the latest developments in dentistry. They have lasers and cool 3-dimensional imaging. Highly recommended!

Dr.Cartsos has overseen my invisialign treatment for the past 10 months. She has done an amazing job each step of the way. I couldn’t be happier with the results! Almost a year ago I was in constant pain and could not close my mouth fully. And now, everything has been fixed and I look and feel just great!

Robyn Marder (Source: Google)

★★★★★

The doctors at this office are amazing! When my son chipped his front permanent tooth on the playground a block away, Dr. Zavras saw him immediately (with no appointment), calmed me down, fixed the tooth so that it was not noticeable–and it cost me nothing out of pocket! Dr. Cartsos is a magician. She somehow managed to align my daughter’s teeth without having to pull healthy permanent teeth–even though her mouth was too small! One by one, Dr. Cartsos moved my daughter’s teeth to make space, and now she has a beautiful smile. All of the doctors are pleasant, good with children, professional, patient, and caring. The hygienists are patient, caring, professional, knowledgable, and reassuring. The best dentists and orthodontists around!

Kathryn G. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been bringing my kids here for 2.5 years and I am very impressed with every dentist and staff people I’ve interacted with. They have been caring, patient with my uncooperative kids, knowledgeable, and kind. I’ve been impressed with their thoroughness but never felt like unnecessary services have been recommended. They take time to interact with my kids and help them feel comfortable. Plus, Shake Shack is across the street so I never mind making the drive!

Bruna G. from Andover, MA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient here for 10+ years and have nothing but great things to say about the doctors, staff and the treatment I have received as a patient! All of the doctors are extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Laura and Deidre (hygienists) have always been so great and always make me feel comfortable. The receptionists are also very friendly and helpful when it comes to scheduling or answering any questions about payments etc. I don’t live in the area anymore – I now live in Andover – but I still continue to get my dental treatment done here. I wouldn’t trust anyone else!

★★★★★

We have been visiting Convivial dental for the past 4 years. Dr. Zavras has treated our daughter’s dental needs with great attention and care, without unnecessary treatments. When the time came Dr. Cartsos gave us professional advice and explained all the different options for our daughter’s orthodontics needs so we can make an intelligent decision on which treatment to follow. Dr. Cartsos followed her treatment progress with patience, every step of the way. It has been seamless and accommodating, even though we have not always been the perfect patient in terms of consistency. Highly recommend the office of Convivial Dental.

★★★★★

The results are astonishing! Dr. Vicky Cartsos was detailed oriented on my specific needs and every step of my treatment was as she predicted. She explored every possible way and delivered amazing results. I cannot thank her much. I was seen and treated also by Dr. Ethan Zavras. His procedure on me was quick, painless and totally 100% effective. Both of them deserve my Academic grade A+. Many thanks

I have been going to Convivial Dental for five months now to have orthodontic work done. I have been impressed by Dr. Cartsos’ professionalism, expertise, knowledge, attention to detail and perfectionism! She truly cares about her patients and this is evidenced in every interaction with her. The staff is very friendly and always accommodating with appointments, changes, etc. I am driving to Convivial from the South Shore and there is a reason for that: I would not go anywhere else! And my teeth look amazing!!

★★★★★

I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Cartsos’ & her incredible team at Convivial Dental. Dr. Cartsos was recommended to me by a work colleague who underwent successful treatment with Invisalign. As a teen I had spend many years in traditional metal braces with great results. As I got older and stopped being diligent about wearing my retainer though, my teeth shifted significantly. I was a little nervous about embarking on orthodontic treatment again as adult, but Dr. Cartsos’ professionalism, warmth, and expertise made me feel at ease throughout my nine month long Invisalign treatment. I couldn’t be more pleased with my new smile and my experiences at Convivial. I now have a built in bottom retainer that is practically invisible and wear my clear Invisalign retainers only at night. Dr. Cartsos and her team are true professionals who care sincerely about their patients (of all ages!). If you are considering adult orthodontics/Invisalign , I encourage you to call and set up your introductory appointment today!

I appreciate the detailed instructions and kind care. The Doctor and staff are eager to educate me about my condition and ways to improve it. For example, I appreciate the nurse’s explanation that rinsing my mouth with hydrogen peroxide before being seen is a CDC guideline and helps with removing viruses from the mouth or lessening the chance. It is always great to be educated about other domains in life. Dr. Vickie is an exceptional human being, who is competent, generous, and helpful.
