”Truly a dream-come-true” - Kathleen K.
Dr. V was recently highly recommended by a good friend and someone I trust, my current dentist was retiring. I can honestly state that the recommendation was GREAT! Dr. V is truly a dream-come-true. She is unlike most people in her field – she does not believe that you must endure pain to locate the problem. Dr. V radiates trust, patience and sincerity. I have complete and unconditional faith in her and the medicine she practices.
”Best experience I've ever had at a dentist or physician appointment!” - Kimberly M.
”Best decision I ever made for my child” - Kelly C.
My daughter came to see Dr. V at age 9 recommended by a friend. Our first visit was so eye-opening and educational. I learned more about my child’s mouth and teeth in the first 5 minutes than I had for the last 5 years at another dentist. Two months later, my daughter was referred to an orthodontist and we had braces over the course of one year, her teeth are coming together allowing for all those other teeth to come in. The whole shape and changes to her teeth are obvious, to the positive. Amazing that Dr. V saw the need to go this route and was so swift and confident in her treatment plan. We are on track! Thank you! I wouldn’t have my child at any other dentist. Best decision I ever made for my child.
”She takes the fear of dental work right out of the experience” - Susan M.
My family and I have been going to Dr. V for 13 years and she has done an outstanding job at keeping our dental needs in stellar condition. She is competent and professional always. But even better, she is warm and welcoming and takes the fear of dental work right out of the experience. Her staff is efficient and friendly. Now, when we go see Dr. V, we feel like we are visiting a friend.
”Caring, gentle, and a real professional” - Patrick K.
I have always thought that choosing a dentist is like choosing your method of execution. But I must say, selecting “Dr V” has proven to be among my very best life choices. I am now in my 21st year as her patient. She is caring, gentle, and a real professional. This lady is a real gem! I have never looked back, not even once!
”We transferred an hour away but we continue as patients. It's well worth the drive!” - Kathy W.
My family and I relocated to the La Grange area in 1997 and all of us became patients of "Dr. V." She is a fantastic dentist and a wonderful person. She always makes you feel comfortable and is genuinely concerned about not only your dental health but your overall well being. Ten years ago we transferred an hour away from the area but we continue as patients. It's well worth the drive! Needless to say we highly recommend Dr. V.
”Dr. V is the best dentist I ever had” - Janet C.
We have been patients for 14 years. Dr. V is the best dentist I ever had and she is great with children of all ages. She is also a sweet person who has a big heart and always made us feel appreciated.
”A great role model for our children” - Carole S.
Our family of 4 have been with Dr. V for almost 15 years. She is an excellent dentist. A visit to her office is not hurried like most medical offices, but rather a calm, friendly time. She is our favorite dentist of all we have ever treated with. She is a great role model for our children who have grown up liking our dentist and not fearing dental visits.
”I am still cavity-free!” - Emmalee S.
I have been seeing Dr. V for 10+ years now. She has been fantastic. Extremely friendly and personable staff, and I am still cavity-free!
”She always makes it a joyful experience” - Mary A.
I have been with Dr. V for over 20 years. She always makes it a joyful experience instead of dreading to go to the dentist. She cares about her patients in every way to the extent of checking on them outside the office. She is a wonderful dentist, never rushed you to move on to another patient. I intend for her to be my dentist as long as I live.
”I am confident I will have a lasting smile” - Carolyn K.
As a patient of more than 20 years, I’ve gained the highest respect for Dr. V’s professional skills and her consistent care and concern for the patient experience. From regular preventive care to my occasional dental emergencies and restorative work she is always there for me. Because of Dr. V’s care, I am confident I will have a lasting smile.
”The commitment to her patients goes over and above” - Evelyn E.
Dr. V has provided an exceptional quality of dental care for our family for over 25 years. The dental services are impeccable. She is professional, easy to connect with and the commitment to her patients goes over and above. Her staff is welcoming and attentive. We would highly recommend Dr. V to anyone.
”If you’re looking for a real family atmosphere this is the place” - Frank M.
My wife and I moved down from Chicago back in 1985 and as a transplant it is often daunting to find doctors and dentists you are comfortable with. From the very first time we walked into Dr. V‘s office we knew we found the right dentist – kind, considerate and professional. She has always gone the extra mile without asking, even accommodating our needs on Saturday with an emergency. If you’re looking for a real family atmosphere this is the place.
”Our family’s dentist for over 20 years” - Paula S.
Dr. V has been our family’s dentist for over 20 years and we continue to be very satisfied and confident with her skills and commitment to us as her patients. Dr. V and all her staff have always been not only friendly but also professional at all times. The ease and flexibility of making appointments as well as for unexpected dental work is something we have always appreciated about her practice.

”Now I don’t hate going to the dentist” - Cicely C.
I have been with Dr. Visanescu since day one. She and her staff has always been friendly and helpful. They have worked with my schedule. I had a root canal and the next day I was in pain. After calling the office I went to her office. Dr. Visanescu made room in her day to find out why I was having so much pain. Dr. Visanescu discovered I had an extra nerve canal, so she performed an unscheduled root canal. The office will follow up with you when you have had a problem. I had a bad experience with a dentist when I was a child. I explained that to Dr. Visanescu the first visit and she has worked with me through the years now. Now I don’t hate going to the dentist.
”They go above and beyond to make me comfortable and reduce the anxiety level” - Ruth B.
I have been a patient of Dr. Visanescu’s for over 14 years. Over this time she has performed routine cleaning on my teeth as well as more complex cosmetic procedures. Dr. Visanescu is very knowledgeable and well-versed on the latest dental advancements. She is compassionate to her patients and makes them comfortable with her detailed explanations of what will happen and what to expect. The office is very clean and I have found her and her staff go above and beyond to make me comfortable and reduce the anxiety level of going to the dentist.
”I would highly recommend her to anyone” - Scott B.
Dr. V is warm, personable and an outstanding dentist.
- Cyndi S.
Like many people, I am not real fond of dental visits (no offense Dr. V). However, Dr. Visanescu makes it more tolerable with her concern for my well-being, I’ve been a patient since 1999 and have always received the best care with her comfortable, yet professional practice.
”She has saved my teeth. She is awesome!” - Margaret F.
Dr. Janet Visanescu is one of the best dentists I have ever seen, She is patient, listens to what is wrong on your visit and suggests the best options for solving the proble. If not for her care I would have false teeth. She has saved my teeth because I have a gum disease and was about to lose them all. Thank goodness she has saved them for me. I recommend her to everyone I know. She is awesome!

”She opened her office just for us that Saturday morning” - Deanna S.
We had been in LaGrange for about 6 months when our 1 ½ yr old daughter fell and pushed back her front teeth. At this point we hadn’t even begun our search for a local dentist. I called Dr. V's office in a panic to see what I should do. They referred us to a place in Louisville, which Dr. V’s office set up so we could be seen right away. Dr. V also asked us to bring our daughter by her office on Saturday morning so she could also take a look. She opened her office just for us that Saturday morning. We weren’t even patients of hers at the time! Dr V was so gracious and willing to go above to help and give us guidance with our daughter. Our second daughter was a thumb sucker. On her first dental visit, Dr. V told our daughter to hide her thumb. She completely stopped her thumb sucking within a month. We have always felt comfortable with Dr. V and her staff.
”She has been an advocate for my teeth” - Carol M.
After 20+ years as a patient of Dr. V’s (as we affectionately call her) I have found her to be a gentle, kind and thorough professional, She has been an “advocate” for my teeth and has treated my issues with great vigor. I attribute her with saving all my teeth by educating me and treating them in a way like no other dentist I have encountered. I have recommended several friends to her and they agree.
”My teeth are more functional now than ever before!” - Steve F.
Excellent dentist – I have trusted Dr. V with everything from routine care to bridge and crown work. And trust me, I know my mouth has been a challenge. Dr. V even guided me through the implant process and Invisalign treatment. I am 61 years young and my teeth are more functional now than ever before! Dr. V also cared for my two boys through their teen years. I highly recommend Dr. V and her professional, caring staff.
”We highly recommend” - Lloyd F.
Since my wife and I became patients of Dr. V, we have enjoyed expert professional service to include annual/semi-annual teeth cleaning, treatment for gingivitis, tooth fillings/replacement, crowns, bridges, root canals and treatment for tooth injuries. When I cracked five of my upper front teeth, Dr. V placed crowns on them and in the process “straightened” the teeth for a better appearance. Dr. V also wrote two letters to my insurance company describing the injury and the necessary treatment. We highly recommend Dr. V as a consideration for your dental requirements.
”What more could anyone want from their dentist?” - Bill S.
I have been a patient of Dr. V since moving to La Grange, KY area in 2007. A cap on a rear molar came off. Contacted several dentist offices. Dr. V was the only one who would make time to see me. After examination, she felt that the cap did not need to be replaced and that the molar would be fine as is. This was almost 10 years ago and the molar is still fine. This saved me the expense, time, and most likely discomfort of having the cap replaced. From that time to the present, I have an annual appointment to have my teeth cleaned. Just recently, I started having problems with another molar that had been capped well over 10 years ago. Dr. V removed the cap and performed a root canal then was able to put the old cap back on. This was all done in the office by Dr. V. I did not have to get a new cap made, and I did not have to use someone else for the root canal. Dr. V has never tried to sell me anything other than provide me with the required dental care necessary for good health. What more could anyone want from their dentist?
”Best dentist experience ever!” - Dana L.
She is very friendly and thorough. She makes everyone at ease.
”A relaxed environment where you feel like family” - Sherri S.
My husband and I have received our dental care from Dr. V for over 25 years. Her office is a relaxed environment where you feel like family. She knows the names of our children and always asks about them. We have received excellent services over the years and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality dental care.
”You can’t go wrong visiting her office” - Patricia N.

”Without a doubt the best dentist” - Lauren B.
By the time our family moved to Oldham County I had been to enough dentists to develop a bit of an aversion to them; and then I met Dr. V and she has been our family dentist. She is without a doubt the best dentist I have ever seen. She is thorough, she is extremely good and she cares deeply about her work and her patients.
