July 30, 2020 was my first appointment since they reopened their office due to COVID-19. I’ve been a long standing patient with this dental practice and even before COVID, this practice was always clean and thorough. I felt safe that they were doing everything in their power to keep a clean and healthy environment for patients and staff. I definitely recommend West Hartford Family Dentistry.

Yuhong L, West Hartford

I was with Tammy for years. She has been utmost professional and friendly all these years. We would chat about each other's life and she would show me pictures of her daughter. It makes me feel very welcomed. She does a good job also. I would definitely have her give stars!

Pete V., Oakdale

I have been a patient for over 30 years. Will still keep coming back. Awesome people.

Susan C. , Bloomfield

I’m a newer patient at this practice (Dec. 2019). Have had 2 cleanings and they referred me to periodontist for implant for cracked tooth. It’s highly professional both with respect to the dental care and practice management. The periodontist is great, and convenient that you can see him in this office on Wednesdays. I’m 60, have lived 5 places in my life, had excellent dentists, one who became a very good friend, and in another place had a neighbor who was a hygienist so this rec comes with perspective. Love it — & awesome Covid safety measures!

Monica Barnes, Hartford

Dr. Shakun and his staff is awesome! Rachael is a great dental hygienist. I always look forward to my 6 month cleaning. Rachael is very knowledgeable. If she is concern about any of my teeth, she bring it to Dr. Shakun attention. She also address any issues that I need to focus on when brushing or flossing my teeth. Rachael is very polite and she always ask me how is my daughter. She tells me things about her family while cleaning my teeth. You really get to know her as a person. Plus, I think it’s a way of keeping you relaxed. I really can say that I don’t mind going to the dentist.

Permanent tooth seems to be fine. Toot that Dr. Shkin filed down seems to have done the trick with my tongue problem, which sems to be going away. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Though I hate going to the dentist, I had a wonderful experience. I was well taken care of with much thought and concern. I highly recommend Dr. Shakun and his assistant, Natalia ( not sure if I have her name right) was the best.

Ron M , Essex

Dr. Shakun and his team are always great. We drive from Essex to go West Hartford Family Dentistry.

Excellent visit for teeth cleaning. The dental hygienist Elizabeth was both knowledgeable and highly skilled. It was comforting she asked subtle general initial questions that might help identify /screen out someone who was sick. That protects all patients.
