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

Vladimir K. from Columbia, MD (Source: Yelp)


Today my dad received a great service from Dr. Gersten. In our busy lives, where everything is preset and prescheduled, we are always afraid of all those emergencies and ‘what-ifs’, and when it happened, my dad was ready to accept a long waiting time lasting days. To his great surprise, Dr. Gersten just invited him to come right away, without any appointment, and after the brief examination, he fixed the problem that other dentist has missed.

I have never done business with a dentist before that answers their business phone, even on holidays. They are always available. I have never been to a Dentist before that was as professional, as personal, as knowledgeable and as nice as Dr Michael Gersten and his father Gregory. They really care about their patients. I have referred at least a dozen people to them. Everyone I have sent them feels the same way I do. They are such a pleasure to deal with. I just luv these doctors and I don’t say this often about anyone. You will never change dentists again after seeing Dr Michael and Dr Gregory Gersten.

Dr. Michael Gertsen cleaned my teeth and gave me a very thorough examination. He is very gentle and friendly. He treats each patient with individual care and respect. The office staff and assistants are also very helpful and kind. I’m thrilled that I found Dr. Gertsen’s office. I wouldn’t want anyone else to take care of my teeth!

Dominick S. from Boca Raton, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of this Dental Spa for awhile. From the service to the dental treatment, this establishment is premium. The office is aesthetically pleasing & the Office Assistants are more than friendly. Employees go out of their way to make patients comfortable. I only waited a few moments to see my Dentist & in this short time I was asked if there was anything I needed (IE: A drink) or if I was comfortable a couple of times. They care for their client! Dr. Gregory Senior & Dr. Michael both are gentle with their patients & do excellent work. Dr. Gregory Senior has a gift for dentistry & a desire to help his valued clients. This is rare & special. I have been in South Florida for 14 years & have utilized three dental practices for various reasons. Dr. Gregory will be my final destination for my dental needs. I have never had any medical professional who cared so much for his craft & his clients. If you have dental needs visit Dr. Gregory Senior, Dr. Michael, or any other staffer at this Dental Spa. I guarantee you will be more than pleased! -Dominick

Great dental office. The staff are friendly, inviting, accommodating and do great dental work.. Took my family after needing a new dentist closer to home. They give a detail report of charges so you are not surprised with the cost. Had a filling done and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome.. definitely recommend

Josh Z. from West Palm Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


Friendly, professional and honest. I scheduled an emergency appt 1 day in advance on ZocDoc and Dr. Gertsen took his time with me. The fact that he recommended waiting a few days to see if the pain subsided as opposed to just replacing my crown (a more costly option) says a lot about him as a doctor. Would recommend them to anyone.

My name is Josh…I’m posting under my business acct because I don’t have a personal Gmail. I run medical offices – so, I know a thing or 2 about how these things operate. This is the most professional, efficient and friendly dental office I’ve ever used. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. From the front desk to the dental assistants and hygienists to Dr. Gertsen, everyone does their part to make this a fine tuned operation. I have been seeing Dr. Gertsen for about 4 years now minus a year or 2 when I was living further north in west Palm. I experienced some really bad dentistry in West Palm. So, I was so glad to be back down south, close to the Dental Spa. By the way, that is the perfect name for this office. And, much to my surprise, my crown w/ dental insurance cost me half what I was charged in W Palm. It was only like $380 or somewhere around there with my Guardian Dental insurance paying the rest. I’ve never before paid less than twice that amount for a crown. Highly recommended dental office.

What a pleasure it is to work with this dentist. The staff is super friendly they are all very knowledgeable. They are very tech savvy so from the text scheduling alerts to the vertical standing X-ray machine. Dr Gertsen is the finest dentist that I have had the pleasure of working with in 50 years. I can’t say enough positive things.

Never before have I been to a dentist where they could pull off putting three new crowns in one day. FL Dental Spa has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in the latest equipment and it shows. Dr. Michael gersten work was impeccable and my teeth look amazing. I must say that his staff is also super friendly and communicative. When I got home hours later the doctor actually called me to see how I was doing. That has never happened before with a dentist.

One of the best healthcare experiences, Jacqueline is a wonderful, caring and energetic hygienist who made my visit. Plain and simple she has the skills and a great chairside manner. Much thanks to Dr. Michael for the continued friendly professional care. He always provides me ample time, educated guidance and reasonable advice as his father had and has previously provided.

Both doctors Gregory Gertsen and Michael Gertsen – are true professionals and wonderful people, who will go out of their ways to help someone in pain – even to extent of opening office in holidays for you, if necessary. As immigrant (political refugee from Russia) I was looking for someone affordable and used another doctor before. Little did I know that another doctor was saving money by performing substandard work which turned out being an expensive problem for me 10 years later. Then I went to another doctor who was also very affordable, because he was good at billing insurance company. However, while I was waiting 2 years for procedures to be done under insurance coverage – I lost 2 teeth and had to pay for oral surgery instead. Only then I became smart enough to check references and visited Dr. Gertsen’s office. Surprisingly, the prices were not exorbitant as I expected for practice with superior reputation, but his computer aided design engineering and medical knowledge, experience, advanced equipment from Germany and Japan, latest US approved anesthetics from Europe and professional staff, plus friendly atmosphere – are really speaking for itself. Both Doctors are striving for knowledge and frequently attending professional development classes and meet with medical equipment manufacturers to make sure they have latest and greatest technology available today. Now, when I see a person, suffering in pain for days after visiting another dentist – I ask: “You can not function or work and suffer from unbearable pain. Does it worth extra $200 to you?”. Please, do yourself a huge favor and check out Florida Dental Spa at your earliest convenience!

Likely the nicest staff I’ve ever encountered (even when initially making the appointments on the phone- they are over the top kind!!). My kids were very comfortable and calm through the xrays, hygienist/cleaning and then the visit with the dentist. A testimony to his bedside manner.

Jim F (Source: Zocdoc)


Great staff and Dr Michael was wonderful. I had no wait time and was assessed for a condition and treated immediately. Dr Michael proceeded conservatively on my treatment forgoing a far more expensive procedure I requested after clearly explaining the pros and cons. He and his father have been my dentists for the past 7+ years and I drive 3 hours each way from the West coast to continue with their incredible care.

Great Dr, Great Staff. Quality analysis of my situation and allowed me many options. Great staff, excellent communicators, friendly and professional. Dental Hygiene was excellent. Best cleaning in ages as well as provided tools and quality suggestions to improve my oral care. I have booked two return visits.

Sylvia K (Source: Zocdoc)


Love both Dr. Michael Gersten and Gregory Gersten. Have recommended many friends, family and neighbors. They will both give you the best possible patient care. Good old fashion bedside manner with new and innovative skills and new high tech treatments. Caring, attentive, informative, great follow-up, wonderful staff and excellent dental doctors. Anxiety? They’ll will make the visit very comfortable. No worries. You are in good hands.

Michael is friendly, professional, and just a great dentist. I have been to may dentists in my life. Michael and his Dad run the best Dental practice I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with as a patient. I will continue to use The Gertsen’s and I have and will continue to recommend them to my family, friends, and colleagues. Gary K

This was my first visit to see Dr. Michael Gertsen. He and his staff are very kind and professional. I hadn’t been to a dentist in quite some time, and I was apprehensive. Dr. Gertsen was very understanding and accommodating to me, especially because I’m disabled and use a wheelchair. He went beyond what is normal to help me and to make me feel comfortable. I am very glad that I found Dr. Gertsen. I plan on coming back regularly.

Garrett J (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Michael was phenomenal. I was taken in right away and treated with the utmost respect. I needed a few fillings for my cavities which I knew about. He talked me through everything every step of the way. The procedure went smoothly and pain free! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I will definitely be back in the future and will highly recommend Dr Gertsen to my family and friends

I visited Dental Spa in December and Dr. Michael replaced several old tooth fillings that I’ve had since I was an adolescent. He was thorough in explaining and providing visual reference as to why the old fillings needed replacing. I felt very comfortable in his hands and feel he did a great job. All of the staff at Dental Spa were cordial and profesional. I highly recommend.

Brian P. from Deerfield Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gertsen has been our family dentist for 15 years now. We’re so pleased with his work I even recommended him to my mother! He’s hands down the BEST and most dedicated dental specialist I’ve ever met! A complete perfectionist with outstanding bedside manner who utilizes the absolute latest technologies in the practice. And now his son Michael who is equally talented has joined him making it a family practice! If your in search of a dentist with the old school mentality that you should feel like your their most important patient, do yourself a favor and book the first visit! Seeing is believing!

Brian B. from Boca Raton, FL (Source: Yelp)


I first met the Gertsen’s at their previous location before they moved to this state of the art facility. Dr. Gregory was so proud he invited me to visit while it was still under construction. I was impressed by all the little details that were implemented mostly for the patients experience and comfort. I was greeted like family every at every appointment. I’m a bit of a technical nerd and asked Dr. Gregory many questions whenever I saw new equipment. He always took the time to explain and educate me about various things in a calm, non-rushed fashion. He took the same approach with me when I had major reconstruction in all four quadrants of my mouth because my teeth were in such bad shape. He assured me of “pain free dentistry”, and when, on very few occasions, I began to feel any discomfort….I would tap him on his arm and he would immediately stop everything, reassess the situation, and address the issue before proceeding again. I often received phone calls a day or so after procedures asking me how I was doing and checking up on me. For people who are nervous or have fears about visiting a Dentist, this is the place for you. And the best part is, I now have healthy, clean teeth and I get compliments on my smile. If you’re in need of a Dentist or not 100% satisfied with your current one, I implore you to visit the Gertsen’s for a consultation. You’ll be glad you did.

Has to be one of the best dental offices ever! Our entire family love going there, even my teenager! Unbelievably professional and they have the most caring attitude towards their patients. I would recommend to everyone!!

Celeste Long-Parkes (Source: Facebook)


Haven’t been to the dentist in 3 yrs, this was the best experience. He explains everything and works with you on the price. Also Dr . Micheal is pretty handsome, with a steady job and I don’t think he is married ladies.

Oren Kiriat (Source: Facebook)


Love love love this place! i’ve been to probably 10 dentists in the past 10 years in four different states and only the Dental Spa is the one that made me feel at home. great dentists, great staff, very accommodating and the technology had me so surprised to see which i don’t feel is typical in a dental practice to have everything be new and very user-friendly so i was made very comfortable and for those reasons and more i would recommend the dental spa to everyone.

I was on vacation when I broke a tooth. By using the EmergencyDentistsUSA website, I was welcomed, on a holiday!, to be cared for, as a new patient, by the wonderful father-son dentists, Dr. Gregory Gertsen and Dr. Michael Gertsen. The office staff was very friendly and efficient. Between the office staff and the technicians and dentists, there was great relaxed, friendly attitudes towards each other and the patients that put the patients at ease. The staff offered the patient a choice of music that they played for the patient as the dentists performed their work. As a patient, I found the music a great relaxant during my surgery. Both G. Gertsen and Dr. M. Gertsen showed great skill and talent, as well as patience, kindness and genuine care for their patient’s comfort and good health. They took time to explain their procedures and inquire about my level of comfort. When leaving, I was given complete instruction for my proper ‘at home’ recuperation care. The doctors and staff were friendly and kind as we left, offering us additional help by phone and with a follow up visit. My care, start to finish, was very professional, relaxed and friendly, and genuinely caring. I was very impressed with the staff’s great teamwork and highly recommend the services of Dr. Gregory Gertsen and Dr. Michael Gertsen at Dental Spa to anyone living in or visiting the Pompano Beach, Lighthouse Point, Hillendale, or Fort Lauderdale, Florida area!

Not only is this dental practice wonderful with their complete patient care and support – even with patients that are not typically dentist friendly- Dr. Gertsen goes above and beyond with his skill level- he was able to save a tooth that most dentists would have referred to an implant- this small dental office offers cutting edge dental skills and abilities in a family, caring atmosphere. I have been a patient of dentists from all over the country and not one can compare to their level of patient care!

These guys did what I didn’t think possible. If I could post before and afters I would. But these guys are awesome !!! I went for Invisalign on a whim because I thought my teeth were too bad to do it. Less than a year later I have what I didn’t think was possible for a smile. It’s awesome. Highly highly recommend. The staff is amazing from the front desk girls (Jocelyn) to the hygenist (from new your I don’t remember her name but she’s awesome too). This okacs turned the dentist from something I dreaded doing to something I now look forward to. It’s crazy.

Cathleen C (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Michael Gersten and Dr. Gregory Gersten are both excellent! The are kind, friendly, take their tme with you nd are up-to-date on the very latest in technology. I have been a patient for 19 years and cannot say enough good things. Today was an unusually long wait, normally I am seen within 5-10 minutes.

This is by far the best dental staff and dentist in South Florida. They treat their patients as if they were family. There is a wonderful warmth to each greeting, a smile, and the knowledge that the staff and dentist are there for you. Every patient is given a full explanation of their individual problem and is never rushed or made to feel that they are just a “number”. IWhen you are deciding on which dentist to use, there is really no choice, FL Dental Spa with Dr. Gersten and his excellent staff. 

Karina F (Source: Zocdoc)


My whole family loves Drs. Michael and Gregory Gertsen. Very professional. Very exact. Very clean. Very organized. We have done many cleanings, filings, crowns, invisiliners and about to do an implant. Been going to this Dental Spa for 16 years. Never disappointed. Karina

I had chipped a tooth and needed to see a dentist immediately. I was shopping for a new primary dentist as we are recent full time residents, and read every review I could find on multiple dentists in my area. Dr. Gertsen saw me within an hour, and went over the basic status of my teeth so I could decide what path to take for any necessary procedures. He was very kind, not pushy, and let me think about further treatment. I did make a follow up appointment based on the wonderful experience and plan to make him our family’s primary dentist.

This office was recommended to me by a guy who used this dental service for many years Our family is very impressed with professional level of Dr Michael and hygienist Jackie Everyone from the dental assistant to receptionist are highly professional people amazing equipment too I have seen many dentists over the years but never seen advanced equipment and hi tech they use

Jenny K (Source: Zocdoc)


I am ECSTATIC about finding Dr. Gertsen, he is an amazingly caring, considerate, patient dentist, he always takes his time to explain what he’s doing, he’s very patient and thorough when it comes to answering any concerns I may have, he is a godsend and I would highly recommend his services. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING His staff is very friendly and we’ll mannered.

Sandra D (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Gertsen – I was so impressed with his thoroughness, and listening skills, very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I felt well taken care of. That’s the sign of a great Dentist. Will go out of his way to help you anytime. It’s easy to see why this dentist is tops in his field! Great staff. Supportive doctor. One of the best offices to get in and out of quickly I would highly recommend his practice to anyone.

I had my first visit today after reviewing on line over the weekend. The appointment was scheduled quickly, the check in was done efficiently on tablet device, there was no wait, the staff was terrific, the diagnostic (X-ray) equipment was state of the art, and Doc (Mike) was terrific – both with his thorough explanation of everything and with first class (and pain free) care. HIGHLY recommend this office and Doctor. Best dental visit, EVER!
