02/02/2017 01:19 PM He's the best! I traveled from Virginia because he's just that good! He did a bonding on my front tooth over 25 yrs ago. The only reason I needed it redone now is because it changed color a little over the years. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else with re-doing it!

11/21/2016 05:50 PM Excellent work without unnessary hastle Dr.Shakin and his staff were professional and very efficient. Dr. Shakin listened to my wishes , completed the work in a very short time without any "extra suggestions " that would be more costly and add extra confusion to my decision on teeth repair/work. His work was very precise and quick and now it`ll be " fun " to eat once again. Thank you Dr. Shakin and staff.

09/20/2016 06:42 PM Back to the dentist I've had many unpleasant experiences with dentists prior to getting treated by Dr. Shakin and I must say Dr. Shakin is the best dentist I've ever been to. I feel foolish for not seeking him out prior to the past couple of months. Filled a root canal and a few cavities and I didn't feel a thing. I will definitely be back.

05/10/2016 08:03 PM quality experience for unpleasant task a very gratifying experience. I hate the dentist and he made it very pleasant. Kind friendy, understanding excellent chairside manner. I wont even mind going back for my filling. He made it easy. Plus does his own cleanings which i like, much more personal

03/21/2016 03:18 PM Great Experince I have been afraid to visit the dentist for a long time now but have completely changed my mind now that I had my first appointment with Dr. Shakin. It was just a great experience. My entire procedure was pain free and it went very quickly. I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know.

03/10/2016 05:35 PM Wish I knew about Dr. Shakin sooner... My first visit with Dr. Shakin was this afternoon and the experience blew away every other doctor visit I had in the past. No wait, the staff was friendly, casual, warm yet still very professional. I received an assessment, X-rays and a temp crown without an ounce of discomfort. It went quickly, feels very stable and my bite is perfect. I'll be recommending all my friends and family to Dr. Shakin and his team. Even the the cost was beyond fair and went as smoothly as it could've. I feel much better knowing I finally have really good dental care.

12/14/2015 Friendly, and Patient.. Our last visit was this Saturday. My eight yr old daughter tells me in the car, Mom I like going there. They are so nice. It's easy to go to the dentist. Now for those of you with picky kids know that her saying this means a lot.. I love that they are so friendly and kind especially to my children. We will be with Dr. Shakin for the long haul. Pros: great personalities, clean office, overall best place to go Cons: a little far from my house but so worth the trip

11/17/2015 04:54 AM THE BEST YOULL FIND My family and I have been using Doctor Shakin for years , we now travel from NJ to see him because there is no one like Dr. Shakin and his team! From the moment you walk in you are greeted with Warmth and friendliness. Very rare is there a wait time and if so about 5-10 minutes, which Is amazing compared to how doctors make you wait today. He is very gentle and truly cares about his patients and the best treatment for them. He is very honest with what you really need done and what you don't.,not just out for the money. Hands down best Doctor and staff! Always recommending Dr. Shakin and team. They make going to the dentist a happy experience!

05/08/2015 01:02 PM Best experience ever!!!! Excellent dentist, wonderful assistant, and a terrific staff, what more could you ask for. I took my children to see Dr. Shakin for the first time. From beginning to end, it was a wonderful visit and I recommend him to everyone. My husband and I will also use him from now on. If you're looking for a dentist who's only concern is your oral health and not how much money he can make from you, then this is your guy. Dr. Shakin and his assistant Trudy were terrific with how they handled my children, for the first time in their lives, I felt like I could step out of the room. One of my children is autistic and was very nervous going to the dentist, but by the time we left, he was looking forward to going back again.

01/06/2015 01:40 PM Excellent!!! I have had ALOT of bad experienes with dentists, which explains why i had not been to one in awhile. I wrote to his website on a saturday, and the following MONDAY, he was able to see me, on an emergency basis...who does that?? And, he gave me two shots of novocaine, and i felt NOTHING! I will be making him my permanent dentist, THAT is for sure...

07/22/2013 Best cleaning I ever had!! It was the best cleaning I've ever had. The doctor was very gentle. The cleaning did not hurt since the doctor used non-intrusive, modern equipment. It was a comfortable, clean setting with ample air-conditioning. I was very impressed that the doctor took his time with me and didn't rush, even though he was backed up with patients. I like that he has an assistant the whole session. I was very disappointed in the 50 minute wait past my appointment time, especially with it being my first visit but the staff and the doctor were very apologetic. I plan to go again in six months, so hopefully it will be a much shorter wait.

07/06/2013 Very pleased with this dentist I was very impressed with Dr. Shakin, and very satisfied with the examination and implant/denture cleaning. Dr. Shakin has a pleasant staff, helpful front desk personnel and up to date clean office. I found him from one of his mailings and checked the internet. I gladly have recommended him to my family and friends.
