Completely understanding of my oral history and did not in anyway make me feel bad or uncomfortable of my circumstances. Great humor and as someone who is terrified of sharp objects and going to the dentist in general, he made mefeel great despite being a new patient and my very first visit. Very happy that I found this office.

I’m a MSN, RN who was on the lookout for a new dental practice when I relocated to NY. Typically, health care professionals are very critical on where we receive any healthcare services. I can confidently say this is the bestdental practice I’ve been to in the US. They are skilled, exceptional patient communication, and most important quality comprehensive dental services. I’ve migrated my entire family to this practice.

Alexander Bokser is extremely experienced in dental treatments. His expertise in implants, bridges etc are phenomenal. He has steady hands, and works hard to make sure patient is comfortable and satisfied with results. I'm very pleased withthe plan he had for my teeth and he made sure I was satisfied with the results. If you are looking to have teeth fixed, crowned, bridged etc I would definitely recommend Dr Alexander Bokser!

Very nice dental office. Great office staff, nice facilities. Doctor is very forward with care and getting you taken care of - and gave a cavity filling a great effort despite being in a part of the mouth that is verydifficult to reach. He got in there and took care of it - mouth feels great! Zero pain and very little discomfort during the procedures.

He is a tooth whisperer. The wait was about 15-20 minutes but it was one of the best experiences I've had with a dentist in years. While getting a filling, no discomfort at all. Very quick and professional. After trying twoother dentists in the area and feeling in one case pushed for unnecessary services and physically tortured at another, I feel pretty confident this will be my regular dentist going forward.

He was patient and answered all my questions. He did not rush visit and asked if I had other questions. He said he will try to expedite process to shorten visits. Also lab return is one week which is an improvementfrom where I use to go rather than two to three weeks. So that is a good thing.

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Bokser for the past 3 years and he is the best dentist I 've ever had in my life. As for me dentist is the most important doctor and words cannot describe howsatisfied I am for becoming his patient. I had done several procedures here such as root canal, crowning, filling and teeth cleaning. Each time Dr. Bokser's job is done with 100% excellence and high quality performance, and I couldn't be more happier with the results. Today I had a wisdom tooth removal. I was very scared in the beginning as I had a bad experience once with some other doctor. With Dr. Bokser i didnt feel any pain. Not even a little bit. The procedure was pretty fast too. Other staff members are also very proffesional, welcoming and caring. They also always run on time. I would highly recommend Dr. Bokser and his team to anyone.

It went really well. I went for two fillings. Dr. Bokser is very gentle and personable. It took about 40 minutes to get the procedure done and he made a somewhat scary procedure completely bearable. Great from the beginning to the end!
