My family and I have gone to Dr. Larry Rakowsky for the past 7 years and i wish I had gone sooner. I have a fear of dentists. Not only dentists, but also the staff, the office, the noise, the smell, even the front door of a dentists office makes me nauseous. Because of my fear, I had braces for 8 years and hadn't been to see a dentist regularly in over 15 years!
Never in a million years did I think I could call to make my own appointment and then walk through the door feeling comfortable and confident. Dr. Larry and his exceptional staff are the greatest support during each visit. They are professional, courteous, knowledgeable and up to date on the latest techniques and procedures.
Not only did I have the fear for myself but also for my son who is 7 years old. but, thank goodness he just loves going to Dr. Larry's! He tells me everyone is always smiling and so nice. Dr. Larry is very patient with him and takes his time to show him everything he wants to see. Last week he had sealants done and Dr. Larry made the first initial of my son's name and sent it home in a tooth box. My son was so proud of that and then told me about the prize basket which has the best prizes to choose from. What a relief to know they take such great care of him, so he won't have the fear I had for so many years.
I cannot say enough how Dr. Rakowsky and his staff have honestly changed my life and helped me to reduce a lot of my stress and fears. I would recommend Dr. Larry Rakowsky very highly and this testimony comes from a patient that used to cry when picking up the phone to call a dentist when I had a toothache. Going to the dentist should not be anxiety filled and that's how they make me feel.
Dr. Larry Rakowsky has been my dentist for the last 12 plus years. I have travelled from as far away as the mid-east for consultations. "Trust" is the reason I continue to choose Dr. Larry when other providers are located closer to my Philadelphia home. Irrespective of the situation, I know that Dr. Larry always acts in the best interest of my dental health and my personal well being. I know that whatever the procedure, it will be done painlessly and at my convenience. Because I travel from Philadelphia, when I need multiple procedures or extensive work Dr. Larry will work around my schedule to accomodate me and prevent additional trips to his office. He and his staff have extensive experience and the latest dental technology. I always feel at ease in his care and I am treated like one of the family by his staff.

We needed a family dentist who could see us in the evening for cleaning and could make full dentures for one of us. It was easy to make a convenient appointment, and the office staff was exceptionally nice when we arrived. We were both seen at exactly the appointment time and have never had to wait on subsequent visits. Detailed care plans were provided for the both of us and the dentist was highly professional and caring. The dental staff was competent, kind and friendly. Extreme care has been taken to make the dentures a good fit.
Overall, we could not be happier with our experience with Dr. Rakowsky's staff and the service we received. Unlike our previous dentist and staff, we have never been scolded or treated as a bad child because we both smoke. Instead our problems were professionally addressed and solved with great care. Even if we were to move away from our current home, we would both travel for hours to continue our relationship with this caring group of people.
There's no real story to tell...Dr. Larry and his staff are the friendliest, most professional people I've ever had the pleasure to deal with in over 50 years of having to go to the dentist. I live more than 30 miles away and drive past about 50 other offices to get here!
