"Great visit with Rose, as always!"
"This office has a very pleasant atmosphere from the waterfalls to the friendly, professional staff. The staff has a way of making you feel important, not just a number. They greet you with a smile and never seem rushed. My hygienist was wonderful - very sweet, friendly, and GENTLE! She LISTENED to my concerns and proceeded accordingly. Everyone on staff here has a way of making you feel comfortable and AT EASE (which is saying a lot in a dentist's office!) I love being treated respectfully - even though I ask a myriad of questions and have several concerns they have to work around. They don't just brush them off as irrelevant or ridiculous. They treat me as an equal and work WITH me. They all. especially Dr. Messer, take the time to answer my questions and make me comfortable. I've never been in another dentist's office where you are made to feel like an important friend and not rushed through without even eye contact. The staff are all very good at what they do. The care is outstanding. They inspire trust. It's the whole ATMOSPHERE that is unique."

"The Office staff is awesome !!!!! So is Dr. Messer!!!!"
"Everyone was very friendly. Dr Messer took the time to answer all of my questions. "
"First of all, I am biased because I LOVE my dentist (Dr. Messer). She and her husband Harold are off-the-charts wonderful people. Professionally, as a dentist, Dr. Messer is extremely skilled and goes out of her way to make sure both she and the rest of her staff are as comfortable as possible. And when you are dealing with someone who is genuinely a nice person, it makes the experience tremendous.
Another thing is how Harold and Dr. Messer try to stay state-of-the-art with anything they can do to make the office better. Incidentally, the office is beautiful.
Lastly, I just had a crown put in and I wanted to make sure I gave a shout out to Dr. Messer's assistant Tami who, besides also being a genuinely nice person is probably the most skilled technician I've had the pleasure of being a patient of. Sometimes, you can just tell when someone really knows their stuff. Thanks to the whole office. You are all great!!!!"
"It was as pleasant as it could have possibly been for a dental exam. The Doctor and the staff were extremely through and I felt confident in the entire staff."
"Haven't seen Dr. Arlene Messer in 4 years ( She is great and I miss her) Dr. Anna Belous is also very nice. Thank you excellent work!"

"Once again, I am impressed with level of care/interest found at this office where I think the most up-to-date and fully researched services and equipment possible are found. I had two new dental experiences at my last appointment...a painless ex-ray and a new procedure which protects tooth decay. Since I know Dr. Messer has personally researched what she offers, I feel comfortable in taking her advice.

I have never had such a comprehensive exam and had thorough explanations throughout my visit of what they were doing and why.

That was VERY important to me. Thank you for a great experience!"

"Dr Messer and all the staff are always warm, friendly and professional"

"I have been to many dentist's in my time but never has anyone of them achieved the level or status that I give Arlene's office on professionalism, friendliness, cleanliness,up to date equipment and most of all comfortability. Most times a trip to the dentist's office is one filled with dread, but with Arlene's office it actually is one I not only enjoy but look forward to. Seems strange to say one like's going to the dentist but with the staff and facility that Arlene has at her disposal there is nothing one can expect less off. Top notch staff from the hygienist, the office receptionist's to of course Arlene herself. Arlene's Office is a model that all dental facilities should emulate in my personal opinion it just doesn't get any better than this. A total pleasure to be serviced by such a friendly and caring staff that go out of their way to ensure that you are well taken care of."

A GREAT EXPERIENCE for those who fear dentists."
"Doctor Messer and all of the staff at Contemporary Dentistry are truly amazing! I felt like I was at a Spa! Everyone is so kind, professional and truly exceptional. I am so happy that I am a patient - they make me feel like an extra special friend."
"I am not exaggerating when I say that my experiences with Dr. Messer, and all of her staff with whom I’ve interacted, have easily been among the best medical experiences of my life. They have certainly provided my overall best dental experiences. Their level of compassion and competence is well beyond the norm and one’s sense of “this is better than I could possibly have hoped for” even extends to the office décor and amenities. For example, unprecedented in my experience, patients are offered access to the on-site meditation room, also used by office staff.
I found Dr. Messer by “Googling” “TDM Specialist” and accessing her website. I took this action because I was quite desperate. Following poor quality dental work by another practitioner, I’d been struggling with substantial face, jaw, and neck pain and pain and ringing in my left ear. I was also having great difficulty sleeping.
Prior to phoning Dr. Messer’s office, I’d seen three other dentists, two General Practitioner MDs, an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist, and three massage therapists. I’d even flown back to the Pacific Northwest to see my previous dentist. All of these visits had resulted in multiple courses of antibiotics, more and less useful advice and, in one case, an assessment so dismissive and cavalier that the doctor who offered it will be getting a much less positive review than the one being offered here. Regrettably, none of them made the diagnosis of TMD and so no fully effective treatment had been provided. A massage therapist suggested that TMD might be the issue and that led me to finding Dr. Messer.
My typical previous experience with local medical and dental offices had been having to wait for an initial appointment for days, weeks, or even months. By contrast, Michael, part of Dr. Messer’s extraordinary front office staff, took my initial call, heard the great difficulty I was in, and scheduled me for an appointment early the following morning. His care and compassion were so evident that I was immediately comforted and felt I’d found the right place. When I arrived the next morning, he and Jennifer, his colleague at the reception desk, were care-taking and welcoming. Having had little sleep for the previous five days, and being in an excruciating amount of pain, I was emotionally messy and physically disheveled. Their kindness was such a balm, that I felt better, even while just awaiting my appointment.
Masumi, Dr. Messer’s dental assistant and technician introduced herself and took me back to a treatment room. She was just as kind as I’d found Michael and Jennifer to be and as careful as she could have been about not causing me further pain by doing the necessary examination. Then Dr. Messer arrived and assessed my situation. It was clear that her manner set the tone for the office and her entire staff. She herself is kind, competent, and compassionate, well beyond the norm. I was offered a full explanation of what was creating my difficulties and appropriate treatment was fully discussed. Before she left to attend to other patients, she also let me know she’d be referring me to an oral surgeon for evaluation and that we would continue to follow up at her office. Finally, she offered me her cell phone number, making herself easily available should I have any questions.
Within the very same visit, Masumi fashioned an NTI device for me…briefly, a very small piece that fits over just a few front teeth and help to relax the jaw. Incredibly, my pain was immediately and substantially diminished. I’ve worked with Masumi on two occasions to get a perfect fit for my NTI and this young woman also embodies the highest qualities one would hope for from a healing professional…kindness, competence, and compassion, well beyond the norm.
Finally, Harold, Dr. Messer’s office manager, and Michael, whom I’ve previously praised, deserve one more piece of recognition. Fees for services do need to be discussed. I found that both of these professionals did even this piece of business with real care and concern for the patient.
Dr. Messer, her staff, and facility, have my highest recommendation and my deep gratitude.
"Great Staff! Great Environment! Great Doctors!"
"I was an accident victim and called Dr. Arlene Messer, who was recommended to me by a friend. What happened was I fell on my face while taking a walk and broke my four front teeth. Dr. Messer saw me the very next day and, in spite of my face and lips being swollen, she worked on me without pain, until I looked like myself again, only better. I'm shouting out kudo's to her and her wonderful staff. I'll be recommending Dr. Messer to everyone I meet and will be eternally grateful to her for putting me back together. In my opinion, she's a miracle worker."
"great, relaxed, informative, caring. "
"Always excellent- I am looking forward to each visit."

"Experience was good. Rose is GREAT!!!!!!!"

"this dentist office is the best i have ever been to"
"I have had nothing but EXCELLENT treatment by Dr. Belous and her whole staff of professionals. The office is so attractive and I find it very relaxing to be treated there. I went to my appt. today feeling very tired and actually fell asleep in the chair while she proceeded to start work on a new crown! Didn't feel a thing! She called this evening to make sure that I was feeling well. I am very imipressed with her and the whole practice. It is very rare to be called by your dentist in follow up as to how you are feeling after a morning appt."
"My experience was great. Dr. Messer makes you feel special and her staff is excellent."
"Fine. Nether good or bad."
"Everyone in the office is friendly, nice, concerned and helpful. Dr. Messer is easy to talk to and a marvelous dentist. I trust her judgement implicitely. Hygenists are gentle and listen closely to what you need to tell them. Overall, a very comfortable experience."
"I have been a patient of Dr. Messer's since I moved to Rochester and her office was on Monroe Avenue. I was impressed then and continue to be very happy with her as my dentist. Her dental hygiensts are very friendly and do a very nice job with cleaning and inspection of my teeth and gums. The entire office has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Dr. Messer has referred me to specialists who have been just as good and dedicated to good mouth care. I would and have referred friends to Dr. Messer and her team."
"Finally I had a good experience going to the dentist. Everyone in the office is very knowledgable and professional. I know I will continue to go frequnetly for check ups b/c I feel so comfortable there. Thanks so much."
"Dental hygenist Jana is exceptional! I have never walked away from a cleaning able to say "I did not feel a thing" until today. I would highly recommend Jana as well as this facility. They are client focused and offer the most up to date practices (no mercury fillings) all in a modern, clean facility. "
"I have gone to Dr. Messer for 20 years, from getting sealants put on my daughters teeth when she was 6 and through all my dental problems over the years. I believed then and now that Dr. Messer was a God-send! From the dental fear control program to eventually dentures.. Always professional, always kind....If you are considering major work for your dental problems Contemporary Dentistry is the place for you!!"
"Excellent. Rose is a very capable hygenist, and personable as well. "
"I had a very good experience with them, I had a lot a of bad experience with different dentists in the past which made me very hesitant before I go to any dental office, however the whole experience with contemporary Dentistry so far has been great from the staff to the doctors, the bottom line they really care about you and for the first time in my life I am not afraid to go to a dentist. "
"I had my first visit this past week and it was great. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. I look forward to going to the dentist now!"
"I have been a patient at Contemporary Dentistry for quite a few years now. The reason I look forward to each and every visit is that I am treated with such care and concern by Rose, my dental hygienist. Also, any issues or questions I may have about my dental health care, whether they be medical or cosmetic, are promptly answered with recommendations by Dr. Messer that are viable solutions to my concerns. I am always impressed by how often their office evolves to offer the most current treatments available, and how knowledgeable their staff is on the latest treatments and technology. From contacting my insurance on my behalf, to addressing my current and future dental needs with answers that I can understand, I am always treated like a valued patient at Contemporary Dentistry."
"A positive and completely professional visit both with Dr. Messer and hygienist Rose Vane. I recommend this office wholeheartedly."
"Excellent. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff, efficiently run office with modern facility and equipment. My only negative is that they like to up-sell non-necessities like mouth guards and teeth whitenings. But, they don't use high-pressure sales tactics, and accept 'no' as an answer."
"As with every single visit over the 20+ years I have been a patient of Dr. Messer's, my recent visit was handled in a thorough, professional and accurate way. Dr. Messer is an excellent diagnostician and works with other medical professionals to handle the more extreme situations, like TMD, as well asmore common situations. She takes time to inform and educate, to allay concerns and to discuss available options. Her expertise goes beyond the dental realm; she and Harold Messer are superb at selecting and motivating an excellent staff. They maintain and continuously improve a state-of-the-art practice. It may sound strange to say it is a 'pleasure' to go to 'the dentist' but when your dentist is Arlene Messer, it is as much a pleasure as I can imagine a visit to any dentist could be."
"Excellent esperience for Dr. Messa and Hygeneist Jenny"
"From beginning to end, my first visit at Contemporary Dentistry, PLLC could not have been better. Every person there, from being greeted at the front desk to meeting Dr. Messer, seemed to have my peace of mind as their first priority - not an easy thing to do at such a busy practice. The treatment to correct my condition will be long term and very expensive which gives me a knot in my stomach, but at least when I visit the coordinating doctor's office and Dr. Messer's office, I know I will be with people who address me by my name, care about how I am doing, and will most likely (especially if I see Lori) share a laugh or two. "
"Great customer service. Great service by everyone at this practice."
"You made me feel like I was your only patient. Thanks!!"
"A truly amazing experience. It felt more like a day spa rather than a dental practice. I was greeted by a warm and friendly staff and filled out some forms then as I was escorted the the room for my cleaning and oral exam I was further delighted. As I sat in the chair I was given a remote to the tv, a blanket and a cup of hot tea. But the real treat came with my cleaning as it was the first time in my life it was painless and pleasant. Now when I think it cant get any better but I meet Dr. Messer and what an amazing person. Intelligent and delightful with such wonderful recommendations for my future work. So from the moment I walked into Contempoary Denistry til the moment I said good bye It felt like my needs and comfort level were their most important concerns. This was a first for me. Although I was told It was a great place to go to get my work done I had no Idea how great I would feel after being there. "
"I have been seeing Arlene since I was a little and stopped seeing her as my dentist when I moved across the country, but I love the services at this dental office so much I make appointments when I come back to Rochester. She is great and her judgement is easy to trust!"
"excellent. very thorough and professional."
"Dr. Messer's work is always excellent and painless."
"Happy patient. I had two deep fillings done and never felt a thing. Dr. Messer takes the fear out of going to the dentist and her work is always excellent."
"What a place! Contemporary Dentistry is new age, on the cutting edge of holistic and relaxation techniques. The entire experience of going to the dentist has changed for me. Even sitting in the waiting room is relaxing! I really trust the Team here; they really do have my best interest at heart."
"State of the art dentistry with the two most skilled dentists in Rochester. Professional and courteous. I was treated like familly. The most beautiful dental office I have ever been in. Very patient with explaining what had to be done."
"The dentist is so good, and with her staff so professional, warm, courteous, and competent, that I actually LOOK FORWARD TO GOING TO THIS DENTIST!"
"Of course you were wonderful i have no complants,its just takes me awhile to come to you because of my fear of dentists and Iam so sorry about doing this to myself.
Once iam there Iam fine I just hope you understand..
All of you always make me feel comfortable when iam there and all are so friendly and helpful. I want to say thank you for fixing my crown..
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and happy fathers day."
"Dear Dr. Messer, Thank you for your help."
"Arlene - I want to thank you, Harold & your staff for the good care I received recently and for your special trip to the office on Saturday. I really appreciate the personal service. Sincerely, Barbara"
"Each night I'll floss with chocolate sauce and massage my gums with candied plums. I'll settle down near a sugar mill, for I have no fear of the dentists' drill."
"Dear Dr. Messer, Many thanks for your generous kindness. You are one of a few who would do this. Fondly, Ana"
"Dear Dr. Messer and Harold,
Today, when I wrote this check, I was so happy because it will result in a 0.00 balance! You have been so kind and very patient to allow me to pay my bills over such an extended period. Our Dental Plan pays so little that Aaron and I could not afford to have dental care if it were not for your generous time plan. We realize that all your many expenses must be met also, so we truly appreciate this arrangement. Sincerely, Rose Mary K."
"Dr. Messer, Thank you so much for speaking in our Dental Education class. The information was very beneficial to our topic of cosmetic dentistry. We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to enhance our work. Thanks!"
"Dear Dr. Messer and all your staff,
Thank you so much for all the wonderful years of care our family received. We wish you all the best and we'll miss you. With much gratitude, the Gurfinkel family"
"Dear Dr. Messer, Harold, and family,
Thanks for helping my Mom last summer on a Sunday. She and I really appreciated it. Thanks again for everything."
"Rose is always great as usual. Philip is friendly and professional."
"Dear Dr. Messer, Harold, and Family,
Thanks for helping my mom last year on a Sunday. She and I really appreciated it. Thanks again for everything, Arlene."
I want to thank you for what you did for me, also Lynn. You did a lovely job, I feel so much better with it out. I'll be calling for some more work soon. I can't get over it. You were all so nice to take me when you had other things to do. Thanks and thanks again, take care and I will call you."
"Rose is always wonderful. Philip was very helpful. I was late (read the card wrong) and he was very gracious about it and Rose moved her lunch and they worked around it which I appreciated. I won't be late again!"
"Aloha! The veneers look great and I want to thank you again for doing a great job on it! If I need any more cosmetic dentistry, I will definitely be in touch! Take care!"
"Thank you for being so open-minded and understanding about my journey. I'll never be able to fully explain how much you are helping me. Thank you."
"I have been a patient with Dr. Messer for over 10 years. Dr. Messer not only provides excellent personal care and customer service, but surrounds herself with a top notch team that holds themselves to the highest standards. From the moment I walk in the door I am immediately greeted with a friendly smile and hello. From there it is always a great experience and I have never once had to wait more than 5 minutes past my scheduled time of visit. For someone that usually squeezes in his dentist visits before work this is extremely important. The team at Contemporary Dentistry always seems to have their A-game and they can always go the extra mile for you. In fact, my last visit they were able to squeeze in something that was completely unexpected and were able to complete molds for teeth whitening. This was something that was not scheduled, but due to their efficiency, willingness to provide a unique customer experience, and flexibility they not only completed the whole teeth cleaning procedure, but also took my molds and I was out the door in less than 45 minutes from my arrival! Great job, you have a customer for life!"
"This has been by far the most professional, courteous treatment I have received from a health care provider. The follow through on appointments and scheduling is outstanding. You treat your patients like customers, it is refreshing. Thanks."
"Hi Dr. Messer,
I can't thank you enough for sending me to Dr. Lowenguth! She sure made a big hit with this old lady and did a great job of putting me at ease. And the rave notices she gave me about you & Harold! There are good people in this world & I'm thankful for them!"
"Everyone - thank you so much for your concern, caring & help! Love, Donna"
"Due to negative childhood experiences with dentists I avoided them at all cost for 25 years. When I could no longer do so any longer I called Contemporary Dentistry. Harold was outstanding from the word go; Dr Messer and her team made me feel at ease as they corrected a lifetime of avoidance. To sum up my experiences @ Contemporary Dentistry I would offer the following words; compassionate, non-judgmental, professional and high tech. I never though I would live to say these words but I don't mind going to the dentist. They are simply the best."
"I have had four visits to the office and each time I felt at ease. Everyone in the office is very friendly and treated me with respect. The work I had done was completely painless and Dr. Messer is absolutely wonderful.Treatment options were offered and explained clearly. This continies to be the best dental experience I've had."
"Every time I visit the office it's a very pleasant experience. The entire staff is extremely friendly and I am always treated with kindness and respect. I have had various procedures done by Dr. Messer and the staff, and it has always been painless. My options are explained clearly and I am always comfortable talking things over with Dr. Messer. She is wonderful. Becoming a patient at this office has been a great experience for me."
"Thanks again for the great job--everyone loves Larry's new teeth--especially him!"
"Dear Dr. Messer-
I can't possibly tell you how happy I am with the work you did on my falling apart-bridge! I can eat sandwiches again and really brush without worrying that the ugly piece might fall out, and it feels so smooth I can hardly keep my tongue off it! Wow! I'm one very happy old lady- Thanks so much. Lovingly, Ruth L."
"The contemporary design of the office was warm and comfortable. All the staff was friendly and approachable even those not directly related with my appointment. Terri went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and educated in everything that was happening during my visit. She clearly explained her evaluation of the x-ray and visual exam exam which was dead on, confirmed by the doctor once she evaluated and visually examined my mouth. A treatment plan was set up and explained in detail. Other staff assisted me by making the appointment with my referral to an oral surgeon. I will recommend this office to others as the 'patient experience' is truly the priority of this office. Truly a rare, refreshing experience from a health care provider. Thanks for 'walking the talk' folks!"
Thank you so much. We're both very pleased with my cap and crowns.
Felix & Marlene L."
