My husband and I just switched to this dental practice because our other dentist, while nice, mostly relied on her assistant to do all the work. Our friend recommended that Dr. Cederbaum actually does the cleaning herself. We didn't get Dr. Cederbaum, but were both seen by her associate Dr. McMurray. (I think they alternate staffing their Ravenna and East side offices.) It was a pleasant, gentle and pain-free experience, so after first visit, thumbs up.
