"Dr. Kasarsky and his team make me smile! My smile is my signature, and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else!"- DH / Office Visit / Feb 13, 2018
"It has been over 25 years since I last saw Dr. Kasarsky and wanted to reach out and say thank you for what you did for me so many years ago. My current dentist in NJ recently commented that the work Jason did was “ahead of his time and lasted 3 times longer than any veneer work he has ever seen” (seals are perfect). I fondly remember Jason and his great office staff. I was in poor dental shape before I saw Jason and he got me in shape just in time for my wedding - now over 25 years ago. Thank you always!"- B.K. / Google / Dec 05, 2019
