Best Of: West Roxbury Dentists

Vote in this week's poll and defend your choice in the comments section below. Then check back Friday for the winner.


Wow, there are a lot of dentists in West Roxbury. D.D.S., D.M.D., C.A.G.S., P.C. and more. Who knows what those intiitals stand for - possibly only the kind and gentle people who fill your cavities, check your incisors and ask to see your pearly whites.

So which dentist is the Best Dentist of West Roxbury? In last week's Best Of, West Roxbury Patch asked you which place served the Best Breakfast, and the Rox Diner won overwhelmingly.

And for the record, a D.D.S. is a Doctor of Dental Surgery. A D.M.D. is A Doctor of Dental Medicine. And a C.A.G.S. is a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study. P.C. stands for Professional Corporation.

Please vote with your finger while thinking about your mouth. Now would also be a good time to floss, brush your teeth, and make your next dental appointment. 

Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite dentist off the list, note that in the comments as well.

We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick.

Due to this poll not being scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

Harry Treon (Dental Collaberative) on corner of Waskington st/Cornell St, Roslindale is very kind and competent. My family has been going to him for 20 years. He is wonderful with kids and adults.

Dr. Katsaras from Dental Health Works is a wonderful dentist. He is gentle and professional. He really knows what he is doing and is up on the latest techniques. I have been to many of other dentists before Dr. Katsaras and they were never that patient, kind and professional. Not only that, but he is reasonable. I wish I had found Dr. Katsaras before.

I am a relatively new Bankhead & Groipen patient. Left my old dentist when I lost confidence in her. Dr. Kirk is THE MAN. He's a great listener, does beautiful work, and I trust him 110%.

I was visiting Boston from Oregon when one of my molars started causing me GREAT pain. I went to Dr. Katsaras and he was wonderful. He took x-rays, examined my teeth in the area causing the pain and even sent the x-rays back with me to Oregon so that I could give them to my regular dentist. He was kind and sincerely cared about my discomfort. If I lived in the Boston area he would become my dentist!
Todd Satterlee March 09, 2012 at 02:50 PM

Dr. Katzars from Dental Health Works is a super dentist. He makes you feel comfortable, he is very uplifting and unlike many other dentists who would rather over charge with unnessesary prosedures, he tells you exactly what needs to be done. Good people in this office!!
