From reception all the way to seeing the doctor, everyone was warm and friendly. The woman who did my X-rays, I believe Josie, was an absolute pleasure. She talked me through the entire process and answered all my questions. The doctordid the same and even gave me a signal to use to let her know if I was in pain. Too bad this place is out of network for me so I did pay some hefty fees but I will definitely return.

I was a first-time patient with a signifant amount of dental concerns, and Dr. Moy and Dr. Akhtar gave me their best recommendations, as well as alternatives, in the most informative and sympathetic manner. I'm looking forward to working withthem in addressing my issues and maintaining my long-term dental health. The staff, from the front desk to the technicians, to the business assistant, were all very courteous and eager to help you through your appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Akhtar's Dental Center!

Dr. Ahktar was phenomenal! She provided me with all information I needed for my health and gave it to me in a way that made sense and wasn’t confusing. She’s one of the good ones!

I waited for almost an hour after checking in. The doctor walked right by me and never ever said hello. When I finally asked when the appointment would start they said they did not have the right insurance information for me.They couldn't say that from the beginning or at some point along the way? All I had to do was give them another card for dental coverage from my insurance but they never even told me, just let me wait. I don't know what they expected. The doctor was not even seeing any patients. They said she was just sitting in the back.

This is not the normal dental office I use but I booked an appointment because they were available and close to my apartment. I had some xrays done and asked them to forward the x-rays to my regular dental office. Theyended up sending over blurry screenshots that were of no use and I had to get them redone. Very unprofessional.

To be honest, I was a little disappointed at the fact I couldnt get my tooth pulled that day. Its been bothering me. But as far as the office and the doctor- They all were very professional and nice. As Iwas walking to my examination room, I could over hear how the employees communicate with the patients; they were kind and humorous. You can tell that this office wants you to feel cozy and comfortable in chair. The doctor and staff always communicate and tell you what they are doing before they start doing it. Overall it was a good experience. If Dr. Akhtar was able to perform the oral surgey I needed, I would have let her.

Usually I don't leave reviews, but i really liked this place. I have been to several offices around Brooklyn and didn't feel like they were trying to sell me into anything that I didn't need done. The doctor and her staffwere very professional. She works quick, but the cleaning was probably the best I have gotten. She did some other work too, and I have no complaints!

I loved Dr. Akhtar! Wish I could have found her years ago! I am a dental phobic and all my anxiety melted away when I meet and spoke with her! She's very nice and answered all my questions! I'm sad she'snot in Manhattan any longer, but don't mind traveling to Brooklyn to see her!

Came in with no pain at all and in left in excruciating pain. I'm still in pain and very upset. I would not recommend her, not an experience dentist in my opinion. However, I will say the cleaning of my teeth was pretty painless and fast.

Dr. Akhtar is a kind, professional and very gentle dentist. I've had numerous appointments with her and she always takes time to thoroughly review the x-rays and clearly explain her assessment and recommendations. I have sensitive gums andusually even cleanings are very painful but my cleaning with Dr. Akhtar was easy and painless. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a dentist in NYC.

My life-long search for the perfect Dentist is finally over! I went through a very traumatic experience with a Dentist decades ago and was terrified of going to another one. But then I met Dr. Akhtar and all those fears werewashed away! She answered all my questions and eased all my concerns! I am very, very pleased with having her as MY Dentist!!

The Brooklyn office was really friendly! I was seated as soon as the insurance was verified, and the assistant was wonderful. I appreciated how the doctor spent time going over the work that I needed and explained why. I had quitean extensive plan to do and the manager was really informative in the breakdown of payments. Overall everyone made me comfortable and I will be doing all my work here.

I've been in NYC for 6 years and have seen a slew of different dentists due to changes in my coverage, being unsatisfied with certain experiences, and moving. Dr. Akhtar is one of the best dentists that I've seen in thecity and I plan to stick with her for as long as I can! She was very efficient and reasonable with her recommendations, and I could tell she truly wanted what was best for my dental health and not pushing anything on me that I didn't really need. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled. It was honestly one of the smoothest dental appointments I've ever had! Added bonus: the office is clean, modern, and right around the corner from my apartment!

The office did not explain who was taking me where and what for, all of the sudden I was getting x-rays and no one told me why. It was the strangest experience. The staff was goofing off and not very professional.
