Chad H. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


Before going to Livonia dental I had been to several dentists. I even drove all the way from Livonia to Auburn Hills to go to a dentist I heard about on the radio. The staff at Livonia dental is wonderful. They have always been very attentive and relational. I recently had a crown put on and was very satisfied with the work. I had to make an appointment to have them make new bleaching trays which were messed up when the crown was put in place and they made the new molds and no charge. My wife and I have very good insurance so there has never been an issue with services being covered. However I know they do have plans for those who cannot afford the services. They also give out the doctors cell phone numbers in case you have any issues and the doctor will normally call you the next day to make sure that you are doing okay. Overall I have had a great experience. Chad Harrington

I have been a patient now for a couple of years. I’m one of those, that dental appointments make anxious. My hygienist that I have been with since being a new patient, retired. I started with a new hygienist today. Ash was amazing, super sweet, professional and immediately picked up on my apprehension…. She put me at ease immediately. Also saw Dr J., he’s so awesome. Needless to say, Ash will be my hygienist from now on, I’m also making a new patient appointment for my Dad with her!

First visit since my long time dentist retired. I was nervous……but very pleased with the atmosphere and friendly attention from the staff. The staff were all friendly and attentive and the atmosphere itself is very open and bright and soothing. They were extremely thorough in their exams, x-rays and cleaning of my teeth. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this dentist’s office to others. In fact I’ve convinced my boyfriend and cousin to go as they cater to those who are skiddish about going to the dentist.

I have been going to Livonia Dental Care for many years.The office is clean and up to date with all the new technology. Dr. Jay and his staff are very  friendly and they make you feel more like family,not just another patient. The hygienists are all professional, gentle yet thorough, and well educated. The assistants are all very skilled and make you  feel very comfortable and at ease. My kids love coming here. I would refer Livonia Dental Care to everyone in need of a good dentist.

My children, husband and myself just started going to Livonia Dental Care. I have been very satisfied with the care we have received. The office is clean with modern technology and tools. The two hygienists is have seen are very friendly and attentive to my needs and Dr Jay is always stopping by to make sure my experience is positive.

Lisa L. from Canton, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Jay since I was a young girl and could not imagine going anywhere else! He not only takes great care of your teeth but he cares about YOU! The entire staff is friendly and energetic as well, creating a very pleasant atmosphere. No one enjoys going to the dentist, but the hygienists are polite, caring, and courteous and always do their best to make you as comfortable as possible during your visit.

Emily M. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I was very impressed by the caring & professional manner of Dr. Jay and his staff.  From the moment you walk in you’re greeted with warm smiles and friendly faces!  I never leave my appointments feeling rushed or confused on future treatment.  They always are up to date with the latest technologies in the office which brings such relief.  There is no other place comparable to Livonia Dental Care!

Always have the best experience at Livonia Dental Care! Everyone is kind, professional, and efficient. Ashe has been my dental hygienist a few times and she’s the best! She’s so friendly and makes sure I’m as comfortable as possible throughout my cleaning. She even cleaned my bite guard, gave me a new container for it, and gave me some helpful tips on cleaning it at home! I love this place so much I had my husband switch dentists and he loves it here too. Definitely recommend Livonia Dental Care!

If you have a fear of going to the dentist then you need to find Livonia Dental Care. You will be treated like family in a clean and professional environment by people who really care about you and your dental health. Doctor Jay and the staff are professional and friendly. Best of all is having dental procedures done with absolutely no pain. If you have dental needs and were afraid to do something about it, contact LDC today.

Judith M. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


My family has been there several times. We have just move to Livonia three years ago. We have reached the point where our old metal fillings are starting to crack and fall out.  My son is a hemophiliac and has major issues when it comes to dental care. LDC has been everything I look for in a dentist office, very professional, I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes in the waiting room. The staff is friendly, helpful with insurance,there are multiple ways to make appointments (in person, phone, web). They have all the new diagnostic methodologies in place and are very thoughtful about cost for the patient. They will let you know if something has to be addressed right away or if you can wait until it is more convenient for you to have your work done. I would recommend them to anyone.

Leslie D. from Westland, MI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jay  and Ambre were so sweet and welcoming! I was so nervous to go to the dentist, the last dentist I saw told me I needed thousands of dollars worth of cavity work and made me feel terrible about the condition of my teeth. I put off going to the dentist again for a long time because of that. When I had mouth pain I couldn’t ignore anymore, I made an appointment here based on yelp reviews. I am so glad I did. I was complemented on the care of my teeth, told that I needed only a few small fillings and that my pain was from something totally unrelated. I have never left the dentist with a smile on my face. I am so relieved. Thank you! You’ve just gained a whole family of new patients.

Favorite dental location. Everyone is friendly and communicates what is going on and answers questions. They do a great job making you feel comfortable. If you’re scared or don’t like certain dental techniques they have new alternatives to make the experience comfortable that will keep you calm. I love the rooms with ceilings with pictures of the beach. It’s so calming and the assistants and dentist are calm and respectful. I have been going here for years.

Rob D. from Lincoln Park, MI (Source: Yelp)


This is the first dentist I ever had that I can honestly say I feel so comfortable every time I go in. Every person that has done work on me throughout the few years I’ve been with them has been amazing. They are always very professional and really care about your well being. When I lost my brother to a drunk driver a little over a year ago, they were the first ones to send flowers to my house. I will never change my dentist ever again, I would recommend them to anyone I possibly can because I consider them family now. Robert 11/14

Tim M. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have been a friend of Livonia Dental Care for almost 6 years now.  I say friend because they don’t treat their patients and client just like any old customer.  Every visit I am greeted by name and with the upmost positive attitudes.  They work around my schedule, the are timely, efficient, and very knowledgeable with regards to the industry.  I honestly cant ask for anything more.  Thank you Livonia Dental Care all that you do.

Laura J. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Livonia Dental for about 7 years. They listen to my fears and ask me how I am doing before they do anything. They keep very good notes about my preferences. …I am a big weenie! Jennifer does my cleaning and is very gentle but thorough. Dr. Nitzkin always calls me after every procedure to see how I am doing. The office staff is always perky and efficient, and their facility is current and comfortable. ..they even have coffee and goodies all the time. I especially like that the doctor is not overly eager to do something drastic….he only does a procedure if it is really needed…..a great dental facility.

Cathie C. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


As a child, the only time I went to the dentist was when I had a problem… So of course problem always meant pain!!  I’ve always affilated dentistry as pain, that was of course till I came to see Dr. Jay and his staff.  Everyone is very friendly in the office and treats you as family….  I’ve never experienced such a great dental office, everything has been comfortable and PAINLESS!!   Hats OFF to great Dentistry!!

Kevin J. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


Very wonderful staff. My family and I are fairly new patients. We both have used sedation and were very satisfied with the ease and comfort of the process. Along with being pain-free, I no longer have to be afraid! The staff has great people skills and the building is very nice. I would highly recommend this place to anyone afraid of the dentist.

Lisa May (Source: Google)


Exemplary staff at Livonia Dental Care. The reception staff, oral hygienist, and the dentists consistently aim for comfort and quality and deliver a great customer service experience each and every time. They actually listen and address patient needs and concerns and actively work with you towards your oral/dental goals! Overall, great people and great experience. Would recommend!

I really like it here. My husband has been a patient here for years and always raved about it so I made the switch when my dentist left the state. Comparatively speaking this place is cutting edge with the technology! The staff is very friendly and explains everything so you’re comfortable. This will be our family dentistry for the foreseeable future

Joy T. from Ann Arbor, MI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jay is amazing!! I have very bad dental anxiety and hadn’t been to the dentist in 3 years. He didn’t make me feel bad it like I was being ridiculous. He understood my fears and made me comfortable. I needed to have some cavities filled so I chose the sedation for that, and it was amazing!!!! It was a little expensive, but if I need to get that much done again I would do it again hands down. I’m actually excited to go back! the only thing I could complain about was the woman at the front desk who was responsible for my sedation payment, she was rather rude all 3 times I worked with her, but I can get over one crabby person in Ann otherwise wonderful offic

Kaylee D. from Detroit, MI (Source: Yelp)


Definitely a 10/10 and I’m really happy I found this place. The staff especially the hygienist who did my teeth cleaning was extremely friendly and welcoming. The waiting time wasn’t long at all, they saw me as soon as I finished my new patient paperwork. There are a few things I really appreciated about this dental office…The Doctor was very friendly and took the time to ask me questions and find out what I was looking for in terms of my teeth. Also I’ve experienced a lot of dental/orthogonal offices who are very pushy in terms of getting fillings or extra unnecessary work done and they did just the opposite. The doctor actually Said that he didn’t see anything serious that needed immediate attention.  Also – they gave me a really cute welcome kit with a mug. I highly, highly recommend this office!

Revonda K. from New Boston, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for about 12 years, I have a lot of nerves when going to the dentist but Dr Jay is very understanding and does everything possible to make me comfortable.  He takes his time and talks to me during any procedure so I know what is happening, which helps to relax me.  Jennifer is my hygienist and I love her, she does a great and thorough job and is a very nice person.  My husband, my grown children and now my grandchildren also go to this office.  We all drive over 25 miles to get here because we feel that we are getting the very best care.  The grandchildren think Dr Jay is cool, probably because he is a family man with children of his own and knows how to make them comfortable.  Dr Jay always calls to check on us after we have had work done and he has came into the office on his day off to see my husband who was having a dental issue that needed urgent attention.  I know he truly cares about his patients.

I started coming to your Dental Office a few weeks back due to a broken tooth, after a recommendation by a friend. Yesterday’s visit was with Ashe Vincent RDH for cleaning. She not only did a great job with cleaning my teeth, but was very knowledgeable as she educated me on dental care. She is a great asset for your dental office.

N Saafir (Source: Google)


I love Dr. Jay and the team at Livonia Dental Care. They are professional, efficient, friendly and Dr. Jay is always funny. They put you at ease and show they care. They did a wonderful job repairing my gums and giving me a beautiful smile years ago and after experiencing high pressure sales tactics at another dentist, I came back for the same quality service again. Highly recommend!

Alex S. from Redford Charter Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Livonia Dental Care for 3 years now, and I’ve never had anything but an amazing experience here. I come in for regular checkups every 6 months (as everyone should), as well as two or three other sessions over the years for filling cavities and whatnot. I’m never in the waiting room for more than 10 minutes, and I’m usually out the door within an hour. Most importantly, every member of the staff is extremely friendly and sociable. The receptionists, the assistants, and the dentists themselves always have a smile on their face and will happily make small talk with you. They’re even pretty good about not asking you questions while they’re working on your mouth (at least, nothing that can’t be answered with an “Mm-hmm”, an “Uh-uh”, or a hand gesture). Dental work is pretty unpleasant by nature, but the people who work here take every effort to minimize your discomfort. I’d wholeheartedly recommend Livonia Dental Care to anyone in the area.

Jill B. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have always had a fear of the dentist. I’ve been going to Dr Jay for years and it was always a good experience but yesterday I had to have a root canal and crown. I was a nervous wreck. I’d had root canals before, at a specialist, but decided to have it done with Dr. Jay because I really trust him. Well, oh my gosh, it was the best root canal I’ve ever had…that sounds ridiculous but it’s true. I never felt any pain at all. I was there for a couple hours but it seemed like no time at all. Even the next day, today, I don’t have any pain. While I’ll never be happy to go to the dentist, this just reaffirms my trust in Dr. Jay. He’s an excellent dentist and you can also tell he cares about his patients. He never rushes and is always there to answer any questions or concerns. He also makes sure to call the day after a procedure to see how you’re doing. I can’t wait for him to call so I can thank him and tell him how great I’m feeling. The rest of the staff is so nice, too. You can tell they all really like their jobs and seem genuinely happy to see you. I’ve never had a bad experience with Livonia Dental Care and will recommend them to all my family and friends.

Kara R. from West Bloomfield Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


Livonia Dental Care is by far the best dental office I have been to! My previous dentist kept trying to push a lot of treatment but after I went to Livonia Dental care for a second opinion, I learned that none of it was necessary. I have been going there for a couple of years and met several hygienist, assistant and both doctors and all of them were extremely nice and gentle. The staff is so friendly and they are great at explaining my dental benefits.

Chelsea C. from South Lyon, MI (Source: Yelp)


So many people have had bad experiences with going to the dentist. I am one of them. I finally gained the courage to go back to the dentist to get a cleaning and check up. I found this place had great reviews and they definitely lived up to those reviews! Very comfortable waiting area, though you probably won’t be waiting long. I did see one guy that waited a few minutes longer than expected and they offered him a gift card, which he refused because he did not feel he waited that long. Then you get into the room and the dental hygienist walks you through everything she is going to do and stops to see if I have any questions. They assessed my anxiety with receiving dental care, and when I told them my history, they offered laughing gas and other options, which I was never offered before anywhere else. After the X-rays and cleaning, the dentist Dr. Jay came in and explained to me how they check for cavities, how the tool works, explaining that I was experiencing pain on a tooth that had previous workup because that work up was not done correctly, and showed me the X-ray on a big screen TV what was done wrong and exactly how he was going to fix it for me. Make it pain free. And anxiety free. Stopped many times to make sure I understood and if I had questions. Which I did, and he answered them honestly. I can also respect that he sat in a chair across from me, as opposed to standing near the door, ready to move on to the next patient. I can tell you right now, you do not get that anywhere else, so thank you!

Livonia Dental Care is a clean and positive environment. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They make you feel calm and relaxed during services. I have a positive experience every six months. I would recommend this office to anyone, but especially to those who tend to have some anxiety about visiting the dentist.

Nicole Sherry (Source: Google)


I love this office. They utilize technology to make sure your teeth are as healthy as they can be. I was very impressed coming here and Rana was great. She made sure that I was comfortable and explained why she was doing everything before she started. Very informative and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Ryan P. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here for a couple of years now and they always treat me great! I haven’t had anything more than regular checkups and a few cavities drilled and filled but they are always nice, good spirited, and professional. It seems that every time I go back, twice a year, they have some new tool or device that makes checkups go quicker and easier. All of the staff is very friendly and I have never had to wait more than five minutes past the scheduled time for my appointment, and that is a huge improvement from the previous places I went to. As long as I’m living in the area I will keep my business with Livonia Dental Care.

Linda W. from Redford Charter Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love the Livonia Dental Care. My family has been patients of Dr. Jay’s for over 15 years, i would not dream of going anywhere else. He is so professional, his staff follow by example. They are always bright and friendly. After any dental work vist I get afollow up call from Dr. Jay personally to see if I am experiencing any disconfront. I would & have recommended Livonia Dental Care to friends and family. Linda W. 11/19/14

Hollie S. from Canton, MI (Source: Yelp)


Though I have never been scared of the dentist, I was scared of getting a root canal. I had never had one before. When I was a little girl I fell and hit my front teeth pretty hard. I was fortunate not to lose them or discolor them right away. As I got older, my one front tooth kept getting darker over time. I began to notice and felt some tingling/pain as well. Dr. Jay and his team evaluated it and told me that I would need a root canal and internal bleaching to fix it. I was scared at first but the staff made me feel so comfortable and they did the best job! My tooth now looks the same color as the rest and I have never felt more confident with my smile :). The best part is…NO PAIN! Thank you Livonia Dental Care for changing my smile.

I was referred to Livonia Dental Care by a co worker. And at first I was sceptical with his claims of them being no less than fantastic. We all have our stories and we all know of experiences that cause the fear in dental. I have two children that I have taken there. Even though they have only had one visit both children and myself as a parent, the fear has been just short of eliminated. They give you the information you need and choices. Thus far, the team at Livonia Dental Care has been nothing short of AMAZING. We will see what else they can surprise us with.

Amanda S. from Livonia, MI (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at this office for 25 years now. I can say that I will never go anywhere else! The staff is always so kind, they even sent me flowers to the hospital when I was sick. When I need work I always feel confident that I won’t feel any pain which is important to me because I am a baby. 🙂 I would and do tell everyone to go to this dental office because they truly care about their patients and always go the extra mile 🙂 Thank you Dr. Jay and staff 🙂
