Our staff is a great asset to our practice, because of all of their interactions with our patients; What I am really looking forward to in staff is their attitude and the way they treat my patients. Because patients, when they come to the dentist, they have apprehensions, they have fears which needs to be alleviated, and by meeting a friendly and comfortable environment, that puts them at ease.

I have been a hygienist (RDH) for more than 7 years. I am excited about all the new treatments within non-surgical gum therapy that I can offer to our patients. I am laser certified and provide laser gum therapy to win the battle against gum disease, and other health conditions caused by it. The use of sealants to stop tooth decay in its tracks is another tool I am happy to make available to our patients. I love my job, because I can share my knowledge of health and disease prevention. I help my patients to keep their mouths healthy, which in turn leads to their overall health. My job makes me feel fulfilled as a person and health care provider, and keeps my passion for dental hygiene alive!
The staff is awesome here. We all work so well together. It's nice because we know exactly what each other needs, so you can go find it and you can help the flow work nicely especially when we do have new patients. It's just great to have people who know your work style as well, it's just really nice. Dr. Nadia is fabulous with patients. When she comes in and exams a patient, she's very focused, looking at every aspect of the tooth, addressing a patient's problem especially if they have a tooth concern that's bothering them, she will address it immediately. Whatever the patient wants and the treatment that they need, she's able to figure it out. Dr. Anderkvist, when he comes in for my exams, he has great relationships with his patients, they love seeing him. If I find any treatment that I want him to check, he will thoroughly look over their mouth, make sure nothing is going on, check to make sure that they're happy, and the patients love seeing him. They've seen him for so many years that it's almost like family, so that's really nice.
My name is Elena and I am a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA). I assist in patient care and ensure that our sterilization procedures exceed OSHA guidelines for your safety. I also make sure that you feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment. We work in a comfortable and caring environment. The office staff works as a team with the doctors, and the manager always promotes a harmonious work atmosphere. I find great satisfaction working with a great team, and caring for my patients.
I know a lot of people come in and they're very suspicious about what is going to happen and they're very scared so we try to make them as comfortable as we can and explain all the procedures to inform people so that they know what we're doing. If the patient relaxes in the chair, then the doctor can do a better job and we can all finish faster and be on our way to our regular lives. Everybody is so enthusiastic about what they are doing. You get it from the doctor first. He is very passionate about his profession. Both of them, they're very knowledgeable and you can trust their choice. They're very kind and very easy going with their employees.
I am a registered dental assistant in expanded functions (EFII). This enables me to place fillings and take final impressions for your crowns and inlays. I am focused on creating a comfortable environment for your dental care, and have extensive training in patient treatment and treatment planning. Our office is run very efficiently, and I look forward to going to work every day. Many of the staff have worked for Dr. Anderkvist and Dr. Tabachnik for many years, and we have become like family. I look forward to seeing our patients every day, so I can provide them with the best care possible.
I'm very happy with my work. It's been a pleasant experience being here also as a patient, because I've never seen a doctor that cares so much, and he makes sure that you're happy and that you're comfortable in the chair. So, I feel very comfortable referring family and friends to the office because I know they're going to have a pleasant experience every time they come in. What Dr. Anderkvist is, is very caring, and he's very attentive with patients. He makes sure that they're comfortable, that when they come in they're having a pleasant experience, and mostly, more than anything, that their comfort level is perfect. I would recommend anybody. Pretty much my whole family comes here to the office, my sister, my mom, my dad, and they love coming here every time. They each one of them have a fear towards dentistry and every time they come in they know it's going to be fine, they're not going to have any pain, they're going to leave happy with their smile and they're going to love everything.
