I discovered Brookline Dental Specialists after moving to Boston and being several years without a dentist. Turned out I needed a fair amount of work. Dr. Kyle Vining was terrific. I especially appreciated the fact that he took his time during the appointment to make sure I understood what was happening at every stage and why he was making the recommendations he did. The detail chairs at Brookline Dental have a monitor and they show you what they're seeing on the x-rays, explain how problems develop, what areas to look out for, and what the options are for treatment. I've now been in for multiple visits including cleanings with Joanne, and a crown - installed by Dr. Vining. I found both of the to be gentle, patient, and informative. The front office staff was also helpful in letting me know in advance about copays and explaining what insurance did and didn't cover. Highly recommend Brookline Dental Specialists.
