This review is long overdue. I can not say enough great things about this dental practice. Sara Stock and the Smile Brookline team are the best dental practice I have found in the Boston area since I moved here in 1987. I had another Brookline dentist for 15+ years, who passed away about 8 years ago. Since that time I have tried other Boston and Cambridge dental referrals from friends, but they left me feeling unsatisfied with their level of professionalism and service until I came to Sara Stock’s practice. My first visit to Smile Brookline was July 2018. I came in for a first cleaning and consultation. Alison, did a great job making my teeth pearl white again with a thorough cleaning. Dr. Stock followed up with the clinical and health evaluation. After being given some tips for improved dental hygiene (flossing twice a day, stop using Glide, start rubber tipping my gum line etc.) to prevent gum and tooth decay she then moved on to my smile goals. I told her that about 40 years ago my brother knocked out my two front teeth. About 20 years ago I had a beautiful set of front teeth put in (one a veneer and the other a crown). The crown I loved and I didn’t want to touch it ever, but the veneer, which was replaced about 9 years ago, I was not happy with the color, shape or match to my crown. She used a 3D imaging tool “CEREC” to show me how I could improve my smile. We discussed treatment options and timing of services so it would fit my busy life and budget. I left feeling very satisfied with my visit. In August, I took my 4 year old son camping in the White Mountains, NH. During our trip, my son made a superman leap head first into my mouth. While I was comforting my crying son, I realized I had a loose tooth. I reached in my mouth and pulled out my 20 year old crown. Yes, the one I wanted to keep forever! I called my NEW dental team at Smile Brookline and asked for HELP! They were AMAZING! I was only in town for one day before I had to fly to Minnesota to visit family. They made time for me to come in and fix my smile for Minnesota family photos. I have to tell you the photos from our day at Story Land, NH were ugly. I had a big black hole in my smile. I had to fix this before family photos in Minnesota. Fast forward to my appointment, they used the Cerec machine once again, my new best friend. They imaged me, cut a new tooth from the 3D image and custom fit the tooth to perfect my smile. This was all completed in about 3 hours including a park break for my 4 year old son. FYI…there is a park 1 block behind the dental office. BTW…while all this was going on, Alison cleaned my son’s teeth as well. He had fun at the dental office! LOL Fast forward to yesterday (December, 13, 2018) I had a follow up cleaning with Sarah. She did an amazing job. My teeth came out bright white, smooth and clean. Let me tell you, not all cleanings are created equal. You will notice the difference if you visit the Smile Brookline team. Aside from being an all-female/women dental practice, which I have never seen before, they are professional and take pride in their work. If you come here you will not feel like a customer at a deli counter, but you will feel that you are being served and serviced by a team of professionals, who take pride in their work and care about you. One thing I can tell you is that my 4 year old loves going to see Dentist Sara. That is about as good of a review as it gets!
