I hadn't been to a dentist in years and Caroline was very sweet/non-judgmental about it. She was extremely reassuring, gentle, and always asked how I was doing. I would recommend her to anyone seeking phenomenal care. I don't know why I avoided this trip for years!

Fantastic . Technician took great care to ensure my X-RAYS were don't properly. Her staff is very friendly and welcoming. Dr.Barsoum has an excellent bedside manner and explained clearly the dental work I would need to repair an infected implant done by a different dentist. Very caring and personable. She very thoroughly examined my teeth and did a wonderful cleaning. Very pleased to have found such a wonderful dentist after having had a bad experience elsewhere!

I was recommended to Caroline Barsoum and I am so glad I came to her. She was really gentle and personable. I felt like she was being honest with me and not trying to sell me on products which I have found with out dentists. Her office is small, clean and intimate. I would highly recommend.

Great visit! The office was clean and I was seen after a relatively short wait time - Dr. Barsoum still apologized for seeing me later than anticipated, which I appreciated. I was very satisfied with the way Dr. Barsoum cleaned my teeth and felt that she worked efficiently, but was also thorough and careful. Dr. Barsoum will be my new dentist in NYC.

Three main complaints: 1) Overcharges. Have called around and found that she's charging more than other NYC dentists in the area 2) End goal is to perform a procedure and get your money. She doesn't have your best interest at heart. 3) She treats her assistants like slaves - to the point that its uncomfortable to be around. She shames them in front of patients if they don't do exactly what she wants.

This was my second dentist in NYC and Caroline was perfect. Very nice and informative. My last dentist told me a cap/bonding procedure on a chipped tooth would be 100% covered/free under my insurance, only to find out that it wasn't and I owed $250 on the spot! I was furious with them so wanted to make sure I saw someone good this time. Most importantly, Caroline noticed that the bonding that my former dentist did was poorly finished. It was initially a small chip, so the bonding was smoothed and thinned out over the front of my front tooth, but over the next 2 years in between appointments, the bonding began to chip off and you could noticeably see and feel that the bonding had a ridge where it chipped. Caroline said he did not polish it correctly and had to fix his lack of attention to detail. She polished it in minutes (with no extra charge) and it now looks like it was never even there!!

Dr. Barsoum and her staff are very friendly. Dr. Barsoum listened to me and addressed my concerns without trying to sell me extra treatments. She performed the cleaning her self and was very attentive to my level comfort. I finally found a dentist that I don't mind going back to. The office is cozy and clean. They are great at reminding you of all your appointments and the receptionist explained what was covered by my insurance and my out of pocket cost. The location of the office is perfect close to transportation.

Dr. Barsoum and her team are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I've already had two visits and from beginning to end the experience was pleasant. I was seen on time, the office is well kept, the best part receptionist gave me a print-out clearly stating my future co-pay amounts for every future visit. So no surprises, I love it! Dr. Barsoum's actual work?? Flawless! She is so skillful. I had a cavity in my front canine (so bad it almost needed a root canal) , the filling was so well done even when I show my tooth to people they cannot tell any work has been done. The quality of her work is that amazing. Very Happy

Dr. Barsoum was very professional and friendly. She talked with me for a while before doing a thorough exam. She did not push any unnecessary treatments that were for cosmetic purposes which I very much appreciated. She did the cleaning herself and it was very thorough. I didn't feel that the exam was rushed at all and she helped me find a solution to an issue I have been having for a while. I will definitely see her again.

I think it was the best dental experience I have ever had. Barsoum was thorough, informative, and put me at ease. Along with cleaning my teeth, she informed me about what she was doing and what I could do on my own to keep my teeth healthy. I already recommended her to my friend and I will definitely return there myself. The office itself was clean and bright, with good music and friendly staff. Even considering that it was a trip to the dentist overall it was a great experience.

As someone who has had bad experiences at the dentist before and is somewhat picky, I had a pleasant experience here. Dr. Barsoum was friendly and talked me through everything she was doing. I was surprised how great she was in identifying all my previous dental work even though I was a new patient. The front desk was quick to check me in and was extremely helpful in breaking down my insurance coverage and such. My appointment was quick, but thorough and I look forward to my next one.

Absolutely amazing. I only have great things to say about my time with Dr. Barsoum - I had an emergency and Dr. Barsoum fit me in first thing in the morning, and when she wanted a second opinion on the tooth / thought it might need a root canal, she got me scheduled at another dentist's office for hours later even though his secretary first claimed their first opening was weeks away. When it was finally decided that my tooth wasn't salvageable, she said me up with Dr. Cafarello (also absolutely incredible) for a same day implant surgery the next morning at 9:00a. For such a challenging situation, they made it seamless and painless (literally and figuratively).

First off: most informative and welcoming receptionist. Not only did she welcome me by name, but she also broke down my insurance and what was covered without me even asking. She was so informative and helpful and I didn't leave with a pit in my stomach like I sometimes do at a doctor's visit just waiting for an epic bill to arrive. Probably the best experience I've ever had with any receptionist at any doctors visit ever. Dr. Barsoum was also really great. She took the time to look over my chart, ask me vital questions and actually made me feel like she heard what I was saying. She even addressed specifics that I had mentioned on my chart during my cleaning. She was so sweet, thorough and professional. By far my favorite dentist I've had in the past 10 years. I HIGHLY recommend booking an appointment with her.
