Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Zipkowitz was very calm and understanding when unexpectedly I needed anesthetic and drilling and burst into tears and couldn't calm down. So I would say he's very good with nervous patients!
Dr. Zipkowitz was wonderful- very warm and helpful in giving me advice on better ways to take care of my teeth. This was my first appointment with him. Looking forward to my next appointment with him. The front desk was very pleasant and warm as well. I will say that the dental hygienist was a little rough with the x-ray equipment and I now have throbbing bruise/sore in the back of my mouth. I've had plenty of dental x-rays taken before and this was by far the most uncomfortable.
The office was small but the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Will be returning in the future
I arrived about 10 minutes early and was seen pretty much right away. The office staff is very professional and nice. The waiting area is small, but I was the only person in there. I filled out the forms online, which seemed to speed up the process. Dr. Zipkowitz was thorough and explained everything very clearly. I felt very comfortable with his expertise and trust that my teeth will be well taken care of. I look forward to being a patient of his.
Dr. ZIpkowitz is fine as a dentist. However, his staff seemed pretty inexperienced. For instance, his assistant kept gagging me when she was trying to take x-rays. It was very uncomfortable and the discomfort was mostly due to inexperience. Also, Dr. Zipkowitz is proposes very aggressive treatments for mild conditions that require frequent visits.For instance, my teeth are in relatively good condition. Nonetheless, on my first visit, Dr. Zipkowitz proposed: (1) two visits for cavity filling; (2) multiple visits for teeth cleaning; and (3) to take out the permanent retainer my orthodontist put in my mouth. Clearly there is some self-serving interest in his proposed treatments as no dentist has ever tried to tie me into his treatment so aggressively. This is probably the last time I use Dr. Zipkowitz.
Excellent experience. Highly recommended!
Just had my first appointment with David today after searching for a new dentist in the City -- I was not disappointed! He and his staff are very friendly, prompt and informative. They also take many kinds of insurance, so my company's impending switch following open enrollment won't be a problem. Looks like I found my new dentist :)
Very professional and detail-oriented! Everyone at the office is very pleasant and helpful. Definitely recommend :)
Dr. Zipkowitz and his staff are very friendly and helpful. This was my first visit and I feel like I've been going there for years.
Dr. Zipkowitz was everything a dentist should be!
Very professional. Was able to fit consultation and cleaning in one session. Would come again!
I was really impressed with Dr. Zipkowitz. He seems to genuinely care about his patients, and remembered my name and how to pronounce it (no mean feat) throughout the entirety of my visit. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave me thorough yet concise explanations each step of the way. The other staff working at the office were very courteous and pleasant as well. Would highly recommend and am definitely coming back.
I went in to identify what what was causing me pain when I chew. Unfortunately the doctor could not identify the cause, and referred me to another specialist.
Dr. Z is a highly trained, updated professional. Procedure was quick, painless and careful.
He was extremely personable and made me feel right at home. Even made sure I had all my files moved from my previous dentist and wrote me a hand written note after the appt. You can't beat that! Absolutely fantastic.
As always, I had a great experience with Dr Zipkowitz and his team. I will continue to recommend him to everyone I know!
Great dentist, but after several oral surgeries I have severe anxiety around dental work so I prefer going to providers who offer nitrous oxide.
This was by far one of the best cleanings I ever received, however, I also needed a tooth bonded and it was one of the worst cosmetic repairs I've ever had done. Unfortunately, I can't recommend going here if you need bond work done.
Always a pleasure visiting David. Very highly recommended!!
Dr. Z is awesome! A great find in NYC.
Friendly, and relaxed. Made me feel at ease.
Excellent! Very thoughtful and explained everything. Couldn't ask for a better dentist!
Very pleased with professionalism of dentist and staff.
Great, he was very friendly and courteous
Dr Zipkowitz was a very good find. He walked me through the process of filling my first cavity in detail, and made me comfortable with the procedure. His staff is also great.
Dr Zipkowitz was very friendly. I liked how he talked through things before he did them and was very professional.
Before I even got to the office, I was able to fill out my profile on ZocDoc. When I arrived for my appointment, I was seen right away. I received x-rays and a full dental exam, the doctor was very friendly and thorough. I get a bit nervous and he let me take breaks as he was giving me a filling. I felt very comfortable and well taken care of.
Dr. Zipkowitz is kind, professional, throrough and personable.
I am very happy to see that all of the positive reviews for him were spot-on. Two thumbs up - he was terrific (thorough, kind, thoughtful) and his staff was also great. I'm impressed. RV
Dr.Zipkowitz was great. I hadn't been to a dentist for over 5 years and he didn't give me (too) hard of a time about it. My teeth look squeaky clean!
Dr. Zipkowitz was really nice & throughout. Ask me about my history and if I had any current problems with my teeth. He made sure I was always comfortable and requested my X-rays and full dental history to ensure that he had the entire picture. The dental hygienist was also very nice too. I've had better hygienist in the passed who really got in an cleaned your teeth and flossed etc. She didn't do that here but she wasn't bad - she was throughout enough for my needs I think since I floss regularly.. Will def go back!
Dr. Zipkowitz made me feel very comfortable, right from the start, and explained everything thoroughly. He is the friendliest doctor I've ever had the pleasure of going to and I will be happy to return again in 6 months for my next cleaning.
David Ziplowitz asked to not book further appointments through ZocDoc. His process is not well integrated with ZocDoc.
First Time, will definitely keep Dr. Zipkowitz. He was professional, diligent, and friendly. Overall very satisfied.
He really cares.
I have found my new dentist...after 16 years in the city. Highly recommended.
Almost no wait time, and a really thorough cleaning. Very pleasant.
Doctor was great, did not like the invisalign suggestion or the "teaching" of how to brush my teeth
very friendly, patient and comprehensive. Found lots of problems I didn't know.
Dr. Zipkowitz was amazing! He really made sure to explain everything beforehand, which calmed my nerves. I appreciated how he asked how I was feeling each step of the way. His staff was very nice and courteous. I definitely recommend him as your dentist.
Very good, helpful, and informative visit. I am going back for a few follow-up procedures that he recommended.
David was very kind, thorough and considerate. His "Bedside Manner" was great. He was constantly checking to make sure I was comfortable and happy. He also was very thorough, and was quick for it being a first appointment. I really appreciated his thoughtfulness and advice. Highly recommend!
I was a new patient to Dr. Zipkowitz and went for a routine cleaning and check-up. He was thorough, professional and friendly. I'd recommend him highly and will now be seeing him regularly.
This was my first visit w/ Dr. Zipkowitz. He was extremely thorough with the check up and took the time to answer all my questions in great detail. Unfortunately I ended up needing a filling, but the procedure was very efficient and relatively painless. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning for any future dental needs.
Everyone was super friendly and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. The doctor was sensitive to what my insurance would cover and was accommodating of my schedule. I would definitely recommend this practice.
Dr Zipkowitz was very helpful and informative. I had concerns about my gums after visiting another dentist this summer who I didn't really like. He did an exam and was very thorough. I'll be going here for all my dental needs in NYC for sure. The women working at the front desk were very helpful and friendly as well.
Loved it. Saw me right away for a chipped tooth. Walked me through what he was doing and answered every question I had. Was in an out in less than an hr! Really nice guy and a really nice staff. I don't usually give reviews, but I thought he was particularly great and its hard to find a good dentist.
Dr. Zipkowitz was very professional and my experience was great. He was running behind due to an emergency, but made sure to greet me in the lobby and explain. I thought he did an excellent job with the cleaning.
Dr. Zipkowitz and everyone in his office were a pleasure to work with!
Great visit, ill be back!
This is how every dentist office should be. Very thorough dental cleaning and the easiest fillings I have ever had. I will be back again in 6 months for my regular checkup and cleaning. VERY SATISFIED!
My visit went well. The Dr was professional and I will be using him again.
Cares about his patients and has a nice gentle manner.
Dr. Zipkowitz is great. He was very efficient and effective in my procedure.
I've been seeing Dr. Zipkowitz for a few years now and have been to his office for a variety of reasons ranging from a basic cleaning to getting a crown inserted. His office staff is very nice to work with and skilled at their positions and he is a kind and talented dentist. Would highly recommend.
Great doctor and friendly staff
Dr Zipkowitz was really friendly and saw me immediately. He noticed I had a small cavity and filled it there.
Dr. Zipkowitz was fantastic, as always. Prompt, professional, and as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist can be.
First appointment and I recommend it already. I found Dr. Zipkowitz on Zocdoc. I had been using a childhood dentist and one close to home for years and needed to find something close to my NYC apt. After reading other great reviews I decided to check him out. He came and greeted me in the waiting room and we started chatting about 5 minutes after I got there. Very personable but still down to business about the status of my teeth and why I was there. He was very kind to my teeth and gums unlike some dentists who I feel cause more pain than necessary. The staff were also very pleasant and attentive and the waiting room was quiet which I appreciated. Got an 8:30 appt so I wouldn't be too late to work which was nice too.
Great office - very friendly staff. Hygenists arethorough and Dr. Zipkowitz will spend as much time as you need. Clean and efficient. Always a pleasure. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent! Great bedside manner and extremely thorough cleaning.
He's very thorough in his work and does a great job. The staff is very friendly. They don't use digital xrays, but I didn't seem to mind that so much.
Everything you'd hope for in a dentist's office with a very supportive and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Very nice and gregarious. Thorough cleaning. Have already gone back for a cap and will be using as my dentist going forward.
An incredible visit. Couldn't have been more satisfied.
Easiest filling of my life!
Great personal touch, thorough care, efficient and professional team.
He removed my bottom retainer that I've had behind my lower front teeth since I was a teenager, citing that my teeth won't move at this point. I now need to find a new dentist to reapply, since my teeth have in fact moved. He also does less cleaning and more gum-prodding. He's nice enough, but I'd prefer someone who has more foresight.
Really nice guy.
Dr. Zipkowitz was absolutely fantastic! I was nervous about going to a new dentist after having the same one out of state since childhood, but Dr. Zipkowitz and his staff were very warm and welcoming. He was even able to fill a cavity for me on the spot instead of having me come back for another appointment! I highly recommend him.
So happy to have found a dentist in NYC!
Very nice, attentive about my level of comfort, and explained each step and procedure before performing it. The whole staff was pretty fantastic.
Dr. Zipkowitz was friendly. His receptionist was horrid and gave such an attitude the second I stepped into the office that I wanted to leave right then. I will not be returning or recommending this place to anyone. She practically barked at me and told me to write down my social security number on a piece of paper. I told her I had typed my information into the ZocDoc's website, but that seemed to go right over her head. It was only AFTER my visit that she told me that my insurance would not cover the visit because it had been less than 6 months since that last time I had a consultation with another dentist. I ended up paying everything out of pocket. The rude receptionist said she had left me a voicemail the day before, but I couldn't understand half of what she said because of her accent and the message kept on cutting off.
He was friendly, efficient, professional and made me feel comfortable.
