Professional statement

*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! “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.”

I'm not a fan of the dentist, but I had the best dental visit of my life with Dr. Yungelson. She took the time to explain what she was going to do next, let me take a break when I neededit and nothing hurt. Best visit ever, I'll be back!

Clean, modern office. Personable and caring, she’s a true professional. Had to revisit a couple times for some small cosmetic updates. Totally patient with me and very understanding (Same with her assistants and office staff). All worth it in the end. New smile looks and feels great! A++

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.

I was extremely pleased with my visit and the care and comfort given to me by Dr. Yungelson. Everyone was polite and efficient and Dr. Yungelson, herself, was absolutely professional and competent. I do think though that it is important tofirst find out and understand exactly what is covered by one's plan as certain services may be offered or assumed that can create added charge

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!

I got in early so even though I didn't get in right away, I got in within maybe five minutes of my appointment time, which is amazing in and of itself. But then the doctor is awesome, the staff is awesome, I really can't stop raving about here.

I have always hated going to the dentist growing up, but not anymore! Dr. Yungelson is the best dentist I've ever had in my life and is the reason I'm no longer afraid to visit the dentist. She really is thebest! Also the girls who work the front desk are awesome and really stick to appointment times. They also explain everything without all of that insurance jargon that I know confuses all of us. I'll be sticking with Soul Dental

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.

My visit was amazing, and I'm confident yours will be too. I made an appointment as a new patient for a cleaning. A two days before arriving, I received a call from the administrative staff to make sure all my insuranceinformation was correct and that I wouldn't have any issues once at the office. On the day of the appointment, I noticed that the office was kept very clean and organized, and the staff were very efficient and knowledgeable. After signing some pre-filled forms (from ZocDoc), a nurse escorted me into a patient room within a few minutes. The nurse first took x-rays and said that the orthodontist would review them to look for any issues. A lovely dentist named Lili followed the nurse and did a very thorough examination of the x-rays, went over my history with me, answered all my questions, did a very pleasant teeth cleaning, and gave me a lot of very good advice all while keeping an incredibly upbeat demeanor (she is a very jolly lady - not something you find at many dentist offices). The orthodontist (Dr. Alterman) followed Lili. She explained in detail what steps I should take to best care for my teeth, what things I need to be aware of, and what the next steps are in doing all of those things. Dr. Alterman was also very cordial and seemed very knowledgeable about everything related to my complicated dental situation. I cannot recommend this office enough (Soul Dental). Go! You won't regret it.

I've been going to Dr. Yungelson for two years now. I have been blessed with the worst teeth genetics ever and have gone to literally a million dentists but Dr. Y and Soul Dental is by far my favorite. A fewreasons: 1. She's really good at what she does - I had this weird pain in a few of my far back / top tooth. After moving to New York, for 3 years, I went to different dentists and they all told me that they didn't see any cavities and it's all good and I was just 'sensitive'. Dr Y addressed the root of the problem. She discovered there was a slight infection in my gums and in my actual root canal. Fixing it was a whole process but she didn't take any shortcuts and because of if, since visiting Soul Dental, I've never felt the pain again. The whole time, I was pressuring her to get me started on invisalign and she could have just done what I asked, but instead, she provided really good advice and gave me reasons for why I had to take care of all my other foundational problems before starting that. 2. She's really fun and just nice to be around. She listens to cool music, chats with you and actually seems legit interested in your life and has funny stories! 3. The office is really, really pleasant - it's super clean and honestly just designed so it's atheistically pleasing to the eye. I know most people won't care but I appreciate a well designed place when clearly it's not common for dentist offices to be well decorated.

She argued with me and was unwilling to accept that I could not afford the pricey treatment plan she recommended . Then she referred me to her partner and I was assured that THIS dentist would treat my daughter. We bothwasted 2 days from work and school; because on Day #2 the second doctor refused to treat my daughter. They breached patient Doctor privacy by coming out into the waiting area to try and strong arm me into a treatment I told them I could not afford. They said, "Don't you want what is best for your daughter?" Then after four days of my daughter being in pain ( the toothache started on Sunday) I left with another appointment somewhere else. Horrible. They were only interested in the money, not helping my daughter

I've been going to Alexandra for 2 years and always have a fantastic experience. She is quick and efficient and remembers small details from previous visits. Today she wanted to recommend I have a sealant replaced and had the staff checkthe cost before bringing it to my attention. I appreciated the courtesy and the procedure took 5 minutes as she promised. She thinks about long term health plans and makes recommendations based on past visits and consults with her patients. Highly recommend seeing her!

The Doctor and technicians were kind and did a great job. My biggest complaint from my 2 experiences is the office isn't always transparent - the first time I had a check-up I felt I was being upsold for extra appointmentsand purchases. In this instance they didnt mention that I was not receiving any insurance coverage for fillings as they only use white fillings (I could have saved 80% of my bill if I did silver fillings at a different office.)
