I love this office! I started coming here a few months ago because I needed a root canal. My first impression of this office was that it is very clean! To me that is important. My next impression was meeting Charlene at the front desk. She is AWESOME! I could feel her happy and positive energy just by standing there! She welcomed me in and was willing to check into any insurance questions I had. I went with the hygienist and she took xrays and cleaned my teeth. She was awesome as well! Dr. Ostromecky came in and went over all of my xrays and pretty much made a plan. He was AMAZING! He was so patient with all of my questions and very gentle when it came time for the root canal. He explained everything that was going to happen and when. I had ZERO complications. I highly recommend Dr. Ostromecky's office if you are in need of a dentist!

A Big Thumbs Up for Jim Ostromecky, DDS. I needed to appeal a decision that my Dental Insurance denied. We had a hearing on 9-10-21 and won hands down. Dr. Ostromecky took time on his day off to meet with me at his office to attend the hearing and present my defense via conference call. I couldn't be more grateful for his effort in this matter. He truly does care about his patients and his staff is wonderful. If your looking for a new Dentist, look no further...

I have been going to Dr. O for about 30 years. He is awesome. I moved to Shrewsbury and still returned to this practice as it feels like family. This cleaning, I had Darlene. She is awesome. I explained that I am not a fan of anyone touching my capped teeth. She took extra care when cleaning that area. I would recommend him as a dentist to everyone.

It has been a long time since I had a new dentist, but considering I am now an hour away from my previous one I thought it was time to make the move. I had one person recommend Dr. O, even though I was hesitant after reading the reviews. The staff is great and very kind, as well as Dr. Ostromecky however there is little communication and transparency regarding care. Last time I went to the dentist was a bit over a year ago, I haven’t had a cavity in years. The hygienist suspected I had a few but told me Dr. O would discuss my x-rays at my next appointment as he was out that day. Well, my next appointment I was given a filling and told I had to come back for a couple of more. He never discussed my x-rays with me, I had to bring it up and ask questions to which he replied there were a couple more. When I went for the second filling I asked how many more I had an he said “10”, I thought he was joking. I said what are you doing today and can the filling that is worn wait or does it have to be redone now? He said “2”. I got those two fillings done, not realizing one was the filling that was “worn.” I was upset and felt like he was not being transparent about the work I was getting done and still had to get done. After that visit he told me I had to come back two more times, which at this point I requested my x-rays and sought a second opinion. The practice manager called me to check in an I explained to her my concerns. Well, I went for a second opinion, got a full exam and more x-rays to which the other dentist told me he could find nothing. The other dentist also didn’t understand why he put in a silver filling without asking me if that is what I wanted, he said that filling also looked like old material and questioned whether I was sure that that was the tooth that was filled. I was relieved, but also very angry. Did I actually need the work that I had done? It is difficult enough finding new health/dental care, but not feeling like you can trust that doctor is a terrible feeling. Although the staff is great, I will not be being going back.

My rebuttal to the doctor’s response is at the bottom. Dr. Ostromecky made the worst possible first impression on me. The office staff seemed pleasant and professional. Dr. Ostromecky himself seemed to have a decent handle on his dental knowledge as we discussed my dental history. I thought I was in good hands. And then he asked me if I believe "the media" regarding COVID vaccine mandates. I said yes. He then questioned me on it, at one point noting an increase in tooth decay with increased mask use. This came across to me as a defense against efforts to prevent the spread of a proven deadly virus. I was shocked. I would never see this dentist again. Edit: Why even discuss such a controversial topic in the first place? Why even run the risk of having a patient misinterpret your meaning, as I did, on a subject you need to be crystal-clear on? Again, it's an extremely controversial topic and your stance was muddled by even mentioning masks and tooth decay. You could have discussed any number of much, much less risky topics. You didn't. Now you're insulting and blaming me for your mistakes, which only reinforces my belief that no one should ever see you as a dentist.
