More like a spa experience than a hygiene appointment. I saw Francis who offered me a complementary paraffin hand wax and a warm neck pillow...needless to say I was more comfortable than I ever have been during a dental appointment. Squeaky clean teeth never felt so good! I really appreciated the in-the-mouth video camera they used too. For the first time I was able to see exactly what the hygienist saw, treatment I received was explained clearly, and I felt confident about my oral health when leaving. I am converted!

Thanks for the wonderful review, Maria! We love to make our patients feel like they're in a spa rather than at the doctor, so we're glad you felt this way! Your detailed review really helps give others an idea of what our practice does for our patients, and nothing makes us happier than knowing you were able to recognize that. Come back soon, and remember to brush your teeth! Warm regards, Charles River Dental

I had a great experience!! It is a really clean and professional space. All of my questions were answered and everyone was really nice.. but not in an annoying bubbly type way. Thing to know: When you are having a cleaning, if they forget to ask, ask them about their extra treatments, such as a paraffin hand wax!!! I will definitely be going back!
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Thank you very much for your review! We try to make every patient as comfortable as possible - if you're reading this, please know that our comfort menu is complimentary, including the paraffin hand wax! We look forward to serving you again soon!

I've been lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. Mark Sivers for 17 years now. I can honestly say that in all that time I have never received anything but impeccable and thorough dental care, the operative word being care. Over the past 17 years I have received not only routine dental cleanings and exams but I've undergone several complicated root canals, and numerous restorative procedures. It is worth noting that I am an extremely anxious patient when it comes to sitting in the dentists chair and I also have significantly sensitive teeth. Despite those limitations, Dr. Sivers has always been able to allay my fears through his calm, genuinely caring, unhurried nature, his incredible patience, kindness and willingness to thoroughly educate his patients about their dental health. If you are looking for not only superior dental care, but prefer a dentist who truly cares about you as a person, look no further. In keeping with Dr. Sivers quality of patient care standards, I can also highly recommend Lauren Carlsen, dental hygienist @ Charles River Dental. They don't come any sweeter or any gentler.

Thank you for sharing your story, as we hope it will help more people realize the dentist CAN be a positive experience!

My experience with Charles River Dental was life changing. I've decided to share my TN (trigeminal neuralgia) story, not because I believe it will be well received, but because I truly have a desire to help as many people as possible. I found permanent relief (without meds) from this illness 8 years ago, and while the procedure that "saved" my life likely can't help everyone, I'm certain it can help some. After my healing (technically in remission), I didn't want anything more to do with TN! That monster had already stolen too many years of my life. But after my sister recently attempted suicide (diagnosed with occipital neuralgia), I felt compelled to reach out to others. My pain appeared out of the blue at age 30... sudden, severe and chronic. My GP immediately ordered an MRI = nothing. Then a neurologist diagnosed "cluster headaches" and prescribed pain meds. This only masked a problem I was certain could be fixed, so I kept searching. Then an ENT specialist, dentist and endodontist = nothing. Then a naturalist and a chiropractor = nothing. My chiropractor suggested a TMJ specialist. I felt good about that and made an appointment with the "best of the best" in Boston. After one year, several TMJ appliances and $10K = nothing. Then a maxilla facial surgeon = nothing. I resorted to pain management by way of occupational/ultrasound therapy. Ultrasound therapy brought more relief than anything I had tried before, giving me a whopping 2 days of relief! However, even then I wasn't totally pain free. I began to hit the point where I wanted to give up on life; I'd been in severe pain for 4 years! Then a close friend of mine, a dentist, offered to work with me. I only agreed because I felt obligated. My teeth were fine... and what could a dentist do that a neurologist couldn't?? Because of his concern and compassion toward me as a friend, this dentist spent time with me every week, researching everything he could about my symptoms. After 8 months, he knew it was TN. After 11 months, he performed a 2-hour procedure and afterwards put me in a "bite brace" (similar to a TMJ appliance) just long enough for the nerves to recover. It was at the 2 week mark that I noticed the pain was beginning to ease. By week 4, it was completely gone. After 5 years of chronic, debilitating pain... I'm crying my eyes out just trying to explain this... I was literally given a second chance in life. I was able to have a fourth daughter, adopt 3 sons (in progress) and enjoy a busy, fulfilling life again. After my sister's suicide attempt, I asked my friend if he had written about his experience in medical journals. He explained that the medical community wouldn't take his findings seriously. He is successfully treating other TN patients, and hopes that with enough evidence, the medical community will take a closer look. Many TN sufferers would rather suffer than stoop to the level of "dental work" or "experimentation." I've been there too. But thanks to a brilliant friend, who I trusted completely, who was willing to spend almost a year of his life researching and figuring this out, I literally have my life back. Pain free, med free and full of gratitude. Thank you Dr. Sivers!

I loved my experience at Charles River Dental. They made me realize that dental/medical visits can be actually be enjoyable! The staff is incredibly friendly, they always see me on time and they've taken incredible care of my teeth. Since visiting CRD, I've learned more about what goes on in my mouth than I've known my entire life. The hygiene team and doctors not only treat your problems - but educate you how to prevent future problems on a level that's incomparable. I enjoy the little luxuries CRD offers, from the hand treatments to the headphones. I even had a root canal procedure that was so easy and strangely, relaxing, that I was shocked - I thought that it was going to be extremely painful...I didn't notice a thing. If you are looking for a dentist in Boston - they are simply the best. After experiencing how CRD does it, I honestly can't imagine going anywhere else. Thank you for everything!!

After moving into the city back in 2002, I needed to find a new dentist. I knew I needed a few things done, but like most people I put it off... I mean who wants to go to the dentist? I was referred to Dr. Sivers by a good friend of mine. Her quote... "I love my dentist". So I made an appointment. I was surprised to discover that going to the dentist could be such a pleasant experience. During my initial examination, Dr. Sivers graciously answered all my questions and came up with a plan to get me back on track. During subsequent visits Dr. Sivers, Dr. Melcer and the rest of the staff took great care of me. Even now, I look forward to my 6 month checkups where I’m sure to interact with the friendly staff. If you are one who only looks for the lowest price, CRD is not the place for you. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. As someone who has run their own business, I have an appreciation for attention to detail and Charles River Dental’s is second to none. I’m thankful to have found them, not to mention all the compliments I’ve gotten on my smile

What I've seen at Charles River Dental (CRD) is amazing. The staff greets you with a warm smile each and every time you come in for an appointment. The extras are varied and delightful. There are always fresh imaginative flower arrangements for you to enjoy while you wait. Although the wait is always very short, they have fresh clean water with refreshing fruit floating in it. Not sweet but just enough to make it refreshing. I could go on and on but let’s talk about the dental care... One gets the feeling of a team approach. Even if you are not seeing a dentist you might pass in the hall someone is there to introduce you. For my part I was there for a complete set of new dentures. Dr. Pamela Muniz is the prosthodontist with CRD. She is not only lovely to look at but a wonderful person to deal with. She is kind, gentle and very caring. Kissy , her assistant for my care, was just a kind and caring. Offering to turn the air up or down the minute she thinks you might want it. Not only that but if you're cold she will suggest a heated blanket. I was given a tube of beeswax chap stick to help for my process. You get the feeling you're part of the family and your comfort is very important to them. I love “CRD” and recommend it most highly.

Find Out How Invisalign Can Help You

Have you considered the benefits of getting Invisalign? It’s much more than having straight and evenly-spaced teeth when you smile. In the long term, teeth with Invisalign are more likely to wear evenly and be easier for you to clean effectively, boosting your oral health in many subtle yet important ways.

Charles River Dental offers Invisalign to its patients, or Invisalign Express if your cosmetic issues are minor. Visit our website and learn what we can do to correct your orthodontic problems today! Learn about all the ways that dentistry can improve your quality of life.

Can Porcelain Veneers Help Your Smile?

If you’re looking for a transformative option to fix cracked, worn, or slightly misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers may be an excellent choice. This cosmetic dentistry option can be used to repair teeth that have been broken, straighten teeth that would otherwise need minor orthodontic work, and restore whiteness to teeth that have lost most of their enamel.

Charles River Dental’s page on porcelain veneer candidacy is a good way to see whether you could benefit from porcelain veneers. Depending on the extent of your dental issues, you may want to look at alternatives like crowns or dental bonding as well. Visit our Cambridge offices to learn more about which option is best for you!

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

The Oral Cancer Foundation has named April Oral Cancer Awareness Month. With over 48,000 people in the United States diagnosed with oral cancer every year, it's important that more people become aware of this disease and get screened for it. Oral cancer can be deadly (one person in the US dies from it every hour, on average), but catching it early improves your chances of survival.

By visiting your dentist twice a year as recommended by the American Dental Association, you increase your chances of finding oral cancer symptoms before it spreads too far. Just let your dentist know that you want an oral cancer screening, and tell her or him what risk factors you have (tobacco use, alcohol abuse, family history of oral cancer). Men over age 55 are at an especially high risk for the disease.

Staying Awake with Sedation Dentistry

When most people hear “sedation dentistry,” they think of a procedure in which you are completely unconscious, much like in a major medical surgery, with all the risks and side effects that go along with it. The reality is that sedation dentistry can be a much-longed for solution to getting your teeth taken care of if you have dental anxiety or a fear of dental work.

There are several types of sedation dentistry that allow you to remain conscious, yet relaxed enough to allow the dentist to carry out the procedure. If you're still uneasy about the idea of having work done on your teeth but are not thrilled with the idea of sedatives, there are natural ways to enter a relaxed state, such as listening to calming music or distracting yourself with a television program. Charles River Dental’s experienced professionals can accommodate your needs.

There are many ways to alleviate dental anxiety and a fear of going to the dentist. Some of them are natural and homeopathic, such as calming your nerves by the presence of a friend in the exam room w

Energy Drinks: Bad News For Your Children’s Teeth

When it comes to our children’s dental health, you probably already know the importance of brushing and flossing your children’s teeth. But Americans tend to overlook the importance of a balanced diet to dental health. Reducing the intake of sugar, especially in gels or drinks, is a good way to keep your children’s teeth cavity-free.

While frequent exercise can prevent sugar from affecting your children’s waistlines, it won’t stop that sugar from hurting their teeth. In fact, strenuous physical activity can dry out the mouth, making it a friendlier place for the corrosive bacteria that causes cavities. This article explains the importance of protecting your children from sports energy drinks.
