Dr. Alexandra Yungelson, DDS

Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist

Professional statement

“I have always dreamed of becoming a dentist. My first dental visit was at the age of seven, after immigrating to the United States from the Ukraine. My dentist was a kind and gentle man who truly cared about the well being of his patients. Unlike my father, who was “tortured” by a dentist in the Ukraine, my experience inspired me to help people and eliminate dental anxiety. Education enabled me to become a dentist. After obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Psycho-biology and a Master’s in Biology, I graduated from New York University College of Dentistry as a Doctor of Dental Surgery. From emergency on call at my residency to full-mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic procedures in private practice, I have transformed the lives of my patients. I feel privileged and honored to be a dentist and practice in the home that I love, New York City.” *At the time of scheduling your appointment please provide your Dental Insurance ID number in order for us to verify eligibility and ensure that you will receive proper coverage for your first visit. **We require a current full mouth set of radiographs (typically 18 individual xrays) prior to any cleaning or comprehensive exam. Please obtain them from your previous provider, or we can easily take them in office, once we check your insurance eligibility. ***We kindly request a 24 hour notice for any cancellations. Thank you!

Doctor Yungelson was very kind and attentive to my sensitivity while filling a cavity of mine. She consistently asked how I was doing and took breaks to make sure I wasn't overwhelmed. One of the best dentist experiences Ive had in a while.

I love this office. They dental hygienists and doctors are all so kind and professional. They also have specialists if you ever need something extra, which is so much more convenient than finding another doctor.

Initially I had the most amazing experience - the location is convenient, front desk is warm, the assistants are thorough and they have someone come in and walk me through a treatment plan with prices that tell you what is andisn't covered by insurance. I really appreciated that they were upfront about pricing. However, I went back 4 times within a month or so for procedures and every time, the experience kept getting a little worse. When my procedures changed, they didn't handle my payments changes well. Multiple times, they asked for my payments (which I would have to reconfirm that I already paid). I brought it to their attention multiple times, but when I finally got fed up and said something, they mentioned they recently onboarded new staff and one of the staff offered to be the main point of contact to handle my account. That being said, it's a bit expensive than most, but Dr. Yungelson and Dr. Anna (root canal specialist) are incredibly skilled and very detailed. They go through every problem, and offer you options for the approach. They make sure you're feeling comfortable and okay throughout the whole procedure. I really really love their work. So in all, it's an incredible dentist. Don't feel intimidated by the jargon- ask questions to clarify everything and double check payments, ask about potential costs upfront!!

I have been to see Dr. Yungelson 4 times now, and each time has been a wonderful experience. Prior to coming here, it had been a while since I've taken care of my teeth professionally, and I was really nervous abouthow the appointment would go. Dr. Yungelson was so helpful and not judgmental at all, and did an amazing job at cleaning my teeth and taking care of my cavities! Not only is she great at her job (I never feel any pain or discomfort, and though it's all done quickly, the quality is great), but she is also great to talk to and makes me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend coming to see her!

I decided to give the office the benefit of the doubt for the numerous unorganized phone calls I received prior to the appointment, two of which changed the appointment time and one of which told me the doctor was not goingto be in. While the 30 seconds spent with the actual doctor was perfectly fine, I will say that I should have listened to the reviews about this office. Never having had a problem with my teeth in my entire life, the dental hygienist spent the majority of the time pointing out many "issues", then trying to sell me on the services of the other doctors in the practice. Furthermore, unbeknownst to me until I returned home later that day, she chipped the back of my tooth in the cleaning and did not think to let me know or point this out. I will definitely not be returning to this practice.

This was my first time visiting Dr. Alexandra Yungelson after switching dentists and I cannot be happier with my choice. I am always anxious going to the dentist but as soon as I walked into the Soul Dental office I feltat ease. The office is amazing and all of the staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Yungelson's bedside manner is impeccable, she is extremely knowledgeable, patient and efficient, she clearly explained everything to me. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Yungelson to all of my family and friends!

I was extremely pleased with ALL aspects of my visit. I was quite nervous because I was going to be fitted for a crown with much preparatory drilling and the fitting of a temporary filling ..The ladies at the frontdesk were polite and kind regarding the paperwork and Dr. Yungelson was FABULOUS. She was calm and professional and worked in an organized manner. She was patient and instructional and I understood exactly what was going on. Finally, she didn't finish until I was absolutely comfortable with my bite and had a perfect fit. VERY satisfied. Bruce S

I've been visiting Dr. Yungelson for 1.5 years now and she has been great each time! Today in particular was great - I had my days mixed up and accidentally showed up to my appointment a week before it was scheduled.It was totally my fault but the front desk and Dr. Yungelson worked me in. Definitely recommend - fastest (and most comfortable) teeth cleaning I've ever had!

on my first visit, she used a neat little trick to keep the shots from hurting. unfortunately she didn't use that trick on my last visit. maybe she couldn't apply it in that situation. that part was uncomfortable. she will fixlittle problems on the side, even if i did not come in for them. my two front teeth were a bit jagged. she smoothed them out in a minute - of course, not without first telling me... She is very good.

My appointment was with Bradford Mclaughlin, DDS and he did a fantastic job. I had a loose bridge and was very nervous about it because I've had plenty of dental drama in my life, and Dr. Mclaughlin made me feel verycomfortable. He was empathetic, explained things thoroughly, and did not make me feel rushed. The front office staff were also very accommodating with my insurance-related questions and helped me understand the exact cost of my visit. I really appreciated that! Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back (hopefully just for teeth cleanings)!

She’s amazing. I avoid the dentist as much as possible, which is why I am now having a root canal. She makes sure you feel no pain throughout the whole procedure, talks to you and sings too! I go into eachappointment feeling at ease when I know she will be meeting with her. I will be sure to go for regular visits going forward. Highly recommended! In fact I have already referred a few coworkers.

After another dentist was not in office despite confirming my appointment, I booked Dr. Yungelson last minute. Let me tell you, after my experience at Soul Dental, I'm almost glad that my other appointment fell through! I had not been tothe dentist in an embarrassingly long time, and Dr. Yungelson and her staff were helpful, informative and kind through the entire experience. The office was clean, bright, and very comfortable. It was definitely the best experience at a dentist that I've had. Highly recommend!

Dr. Yungelson was amazing. I went in, as most people do, with a lot of anxiety about my cavity. The office was small but very clean and almost cheery. The space felt modern and the staff was very kind so Istarted to feel a bit better walking in. I ended up having a deep cavity and needing an Xray and filling. She was gentle and made me feel at ease which is hard to do at a dentist's office. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Alexandra Yungleson.

I felt that they really tried to up sell me on a lot of really intense, expensive options that truly felt like major overkill. It really sucks when doctors do this because then you don't really trust them when something mayactually be necessary. They took A LOT of X-rays at the beginning of the appointment which were really uncomfortable and I've never had that many taken at any other dentist before. Aside from that it was a standard dentist appointment, everyone was pretty friendly and the office is nice and close to the train.
