Dr. Shukla is to be recommended. I've been a patient of the prior owner of Great Smiles - Dr. Swingle - for many years and now being a patient of Dr. Shukla I am more than happy to recommend her. She is warm, human and professional, and the staff - as always - are always light-hearted and easy to deal with yet professional, as well.

The staff is helpful and welcoming, the service is amazing. The Hygienist, Donna is very thorough and knowledgeable. After meeting Dr. Shukla I felt very comfortable that my dental care is in good hands. I liked her personality and when she did the exam she was thorough and complete. Overall a pleasant experience and a Great Dental Office!! If you're looking for a dental practice in the Westfield area, I would highly recommend you visit them!!

The entire staff here is top notch! Dr. Shukla sets the tone for all her staff; professional, thorough, instilling confidence and being pleasant. I spend the most time with Donna who is simply great. She knows that being in that chair for routine cleanings and exams is not one of my favorite ways to spend time, so she makes it as pleasant as possible. The front office staff completes the picture! Thanks to all at Great Smiles.

I highly recommend Great Smiles General Dentistry! I've been a patient of Great Smiles for over 25 years and I can say that I truly enjoy my visits. Dr. Shukla is very professional, competent and thorough. Dr. Shukla and the entire staff create a warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere. They all go out of their way to get to know their patients. Thank you, Donna, Joy, Rachel, Diane, and Priscilla. And thank you, Dr. Swingle, for leaving your patients in the very capable and caring hands of Dr. Shukla.

Dr. Shukla is terrific -- her manner is friendly and soothing, and she puts you at ease right away. Donna is a fabulous hygienist, and the entire staff is kind and friendly. They make going to the dentist for cleanings and check-ups a breeze! I highly recommend this wonderful dentist and her practice. So happy we found her!

Lovely, clean, upbeat office with a terrific staff! Diane welcomes everyone with a big smile! Donna is the best hygienist on the East Coast. No lie! Dr Shukla is kind and very adept with a gentle manner and no-nonsense approach to quality dentistry!! Highly recommend this outstanding office.

Having been a patient of Dr. Swingle’s for many years, I was sad to hear of her recent retirement. Luckily, Dr. Shukla has taken over her practice, and she has continued with the same high degree of professional care and service. Dr. Shukla is a proficient dentist who recently executed a dental reconstruction on a previous tooth that matched it to the finest detail. Her chair-side manner is polite, well-informed and caring -- not only discussing, but listening to any concerns or comments. Diane, Donna, and Joy -- the staff I’ve known for many years -- continue at Great Smiles and they are all consummate professionals as well as cheerful and engaging people. They continue to make every appointment a pleasant experience.

I highly recommend Dr. Shukla and the team at Great Smiles in Westfield! Dr. Shukla is truly a gifted dentist who takes the necessary time with her patients to ensure the highest quality results. The prices are very fair and she is very honest and caring. When I arrive at the office, I am always greeted warmly by the professional staff. I will continue to recommend Dr. Shukla to my family, friends, and everyone I can as I truly feel without a doubt that she is the best in her field...

The entire staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Shukla was thorough and gentle with her examination. I highly recommend the practice.

David N. via Google

Dr. Shukla is a very caring, skilled dentist with a warm and compassionate team. Dr. Shukla recently repaired a fractured front tooth for me and the cosmetic result was wonderful. My original dentist has retired after 25 years and I am very comfortable with my new dentist.

Karen K. via Google

Dr. Shukla and her staff are quality dental professionals. I am a patient with a life-long “dentist” phobia since traumatized as a child. When I visit this office, I am treated respectfully and with care should extra time be needed. The office runs efficiently; punctuality excellent!

Marty D. via Google

High quality service, professional and friendly. The Great Smiles team is, simply, great. Going there is like coming home again. From Diane at the desk to Joy and Donna for my semi-annual cleanings, to Priscilla and Dr. Shukla. I have been going to Great Smiles for at least 15 years. And while the staff changed, the practice smoothly transitioned from Dr. Swingle to Dr. Shukla. Donna has always done my cleanings. She is fantastic. At my last visit during the brief examination, Dr. Shukla recommended that we "clean up" my old fillings on my two back teeth which appeared to have some decay. This morning, she performed the procedure and it was so easy. A little music, a little nitrous oxide, some novocaine and two professionals (Priscilla and Dr. Shukla) who were always concerned about my comfort and performed the procedure like a well-oiled machine. I travel 50 minutes to use Great Smiles. And, I am a busy guy. They must be good, right? :-) They truly are.Less

I really appreciated the flexibility of Dr. Shukla and her staff in regards to my schedule, as well as the prompt care of a tooth issue that I had. You can clearly tell they care about their patients!

Mike L. via Google

Dr. Shukla and her able colleagues continue the Great Smiles tradition of excellent patient-oriented service. Always ready to go the extra mile

Carol H. via Google

Dr. Shukla has done a fantastic job with my new cap over my recent implant and went to great lengths to coordinate with the oral surgeon.

Adric Q. via Google

Dr. Shukla has done a fantastic job transitioning Great Smiles from Dr. Swingle. Dr. Shukla is kind, professional, and capable in all things dentistry.

Helen F. via Google

Very thorough and caring. Wonderful staff

Keith P. via Google

Dr. Shukla is warm, human and professional - various family members (patients of the prior dentist Dr. Swingle for many years and now continuing to visit the same practice now owned by Dr. Shukla) all agree that she is to be recommended, and the staff at Great Smiles have always been friendly and light-hearted yet courteous and dedicated.

George S. via Google

There is honestly nothing negative to say. The staff is amazing, the service is amazing and overall a great dental office. The new owner is super nice, extremely professional and knowledgeable and very accommodating. You're always called in at your scheduled appointment time, so you're never waiting past your scheduled slot. When you first walk in the office, the staff will always make sure that your personal information is always up to date and they also make sure they have your current health information/status. You're then escorted by one of the great staff members to a dental room where they do a general check-up and then the rest of the procedure (cleaning, etc.) after that Dr. Shukla comes in and does another set of examinations to complete the process. If you're looking for dental practice in the Westfield/Union County area, i would highly recommend you visit them and you be the judge.

Tim D. via Google

Great Smiles is a great dental practice operated by friendly, fun professionals who take their business very seriously but operate in a comfortable family-friendly manner. While I miss Dr. Swingle she left her practice in the hands of a professional much like her. Dr. Shukla immediately inspires confidence and engages a Doctor/Client relationship with a warm, friendly & professionally competent manner. The office staff operate as a well-oiled team and share their individual personalities in a way not typically found in such a practice. One always feels 'among friends' at the Great Smiles practice. Bravo...take a bow, and thank you for your care. See you soon!!!

Valerie R. via Google

Always a pleasure to go to the Dentist when going to Great Smiles! They have a VERY pleasant and extremely competent staff and I feel Dr. Shukla is filling the big shoes of Dr. Swingle quite well. The whole group couldn't be nicer. Keep up the great work!

    Our family has been going to this office for at least 25 years. The staff there are more than wonderful. When Dr. Swingle retired we were hoping the new dentist would be good so we could continue our relationships there. Well, we are delighted with Dr. Shukla’s care! Always thorough, gentle, very competent and just personally lovely. Office immaculately clean too. Some nice added amenities like beverages and TVs which frankly are pleasant but not necessary when the professional services (from cleanings to crowns) are first rate!"

    Another good visit to Dr Shukla at Great Smiles.

Many thanks, see you in six months!"
