Dr. Caunitz and everyone that work with her, have been great to me. She's always really careful and tries to help you, work with your insurance and do what's best for you and for your wallet as much as possible. Definitely the best experience I've had with a Dentist so far. Also the doctor she recommended me for my wisdom teeth extractions was amazing, I didn't feel a thing, my face didn't even swell(although this was my experience, swelling is normal) and the recovery was faster than usual. The people at the front desk are also nice and advised me to try to talk to my insurance so I can get a better deal and have to pay less for a co-pay and or for a deductible.

I am very pleased with the dental treatment I received by Dr. Caunitz. She takes her time to ensure the work is done to perfection. She is caring, friendly, pleasant and she makes herself available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. From the moment you enter her office you feel welcome. The entire staff is pleasant, friendly and accommodating.

Arrived in NYC from international travel to visit my daughter with the need to see a dentist within 24 hours. Dr. Caunitz was able to accommodate me at 9am the morning after I arrived. She greeted my in the waiting room and spent time getting to know me and then provided the treatment I needed quickly and with an excellent result. Her team took care of submitting all paperwork to my insurance company. I have now recommended Dr. Caunitz to my daughter for her

I was lucky enough to find Dr. Caunitz on zocdoc after reading all the great reviews. I can now add my own because the entire office is superb from the moment you walk through the door. I barely have a chance to sit down before they call me in for my appointment. She is extremely gentle and explains everything she is going to do before hand. I am so happy to have found her and I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Caunitz and her staff are so professional and knowledgeable. They were so nice and answered all of my questions without me feeling rushed! I felt like I was getting the best care for my teeth, and I will definitely be going back! I cannot imagine going anywhere else. It's also so convenient, right near Grand Central. I do not dread going to the dentist anymore - I love going and can't wait for my next appointment!

I really, really liked my visit to Dr. Caunitz's office and will be recommending her and her staff to all of my friends. She's incredibly efficient, and detail-oriented. I really appreciated how she and her assistant took the time to walk me through what they were going to do before proceeding, and explaining why certain things needed to be done. Her hygienist was also very thorough and taught me how to properly floss up into the gums (which a lot of other dentists never showed). Lastly, my insurance company was only going to pay 80% after a glitch, and they told me it was no problem, and they'd pay the 20% difference. A very kind, friendly and great team all in all. I will definitely be returning!

This dentist does not care about you and only cares about getting your money. She stopped my cleaning halfway through and told me I had to come back for a deeper cleaning, AND I had 4 "minor" cavities that needed to be filled. It felt wrong so I got a second opinion and they were appalled that this dentist stopped a cleaning, and that my cavities were non existent. Then I got the bill and they completely overcharged me for services rendered, when they assured me my insurance was going to cover the cleaning. Unbelievable, would NEVER recommend.

Always have great experiences with Dr. Caunitz. Both she and her entire team are kind, helpful, and –most importantly – do a terrific job. Have ended up at the dentist for many reasons over the years, and Dr. Caunitz has always resolved the situation. I know my teeth will be in good hands for a long time!

I've had extensive work done by Dr. Caunitz and she is the best dentist I've gone to. She is friendly, professional, and thorough. She is very attentive and goes to great lengths to avoid causing any discomfort. She and her staff know what they're doing and will happily explain everything you ever wanted to know about dentistry. She will not push unnecessary procedures - you'll only get the treatment you need. With Dr. Caunitz I never dread going to the dentist.

I am so so so happy it's amazing. They feel like family, they treat you royal and are super professional and informed about their work. They know their job thorough and do it very well and ensure you leave from there very satisfied. You can tell they are super experienced and know what they are talking about. I actually looked forward to getting there and looking forward to seeing them again! I can go and on but I'll just rate I'm spoilt rotten there and now it'll be tough to impress me with a better team. I rate them 6 out of 5.

I had two terrible bad experiences with previous dentist (including a dental negligence) and I was very scared with the idea to return to the dentist until I found Dr. Caunitz. She and her team were absolutely wonderful (specially Stevie) and even when I had a crisis they knew how to manage my nervousness. I had three appointment with them and everything has been going well. Very professional and honest.

I've been going to Dr. Caunitz for a few years now, and I've never been happier with a dentist. She and her staff (especially Steven, who is usually assisting my appointmets) are so friendly, that it makes what could be a harrowing/anxiety-ridden experience, a really enjoyable one. They do a great job, and above all, are always honest and patient with me. It's weird to say, but I look forward to cleanings and catching-up with everyone there! Even their Office Manager, Clementine, is fab. I've sent two friends to Dr. Caunitz, and would send my family too, if they lived in NY. Highly recommend.
