Verified Patient Reviews
He was informative and nice , very nice staff
No no no. Gave him a second chance, but this was awful. Burnt my lip with scolding water from water pick, giving me a small blister. Rough and sprayed all over the place. Yelled at receptionist and hygienist during visit. Not returning.
Dr.Platt was great! He really explains everything that's happening, shows you which teeth are problematic, and ensures that you are aware of and comfortable with cost before anything happens. He also gave his personal contact info in case of any issues or concerns, I felt very supported at the visit. Go see him!
Dr. Platt offered a great sense of humor to go with his excellent dental care. The service was quick and prompt, and the staff were kind and very helpful.
The service and staff were great. Everyone in the office seems to love what they do which makes your visit even better.
I was scared and he put me at ease, went at my pace, cared about my comfort, and I will definitely go back.
Rude and rough.
Felt like I was being sold a used car rather than dental care. Pressured me into financing a multi-thousand "solution" to a relatively minor problem. Bedside manner and staff interaction left quite a bit to be desired. Will not be returning.
Dr. Platt is, in Tina’s immortal words, simply the best.
Dr. Platt was extremely rude to his staff. He would go back and forth between yelling at staff members in the other room and injecting me with Novocain for my filling. When I began to get upset because I was scared of the needle he threatened to "dismiss" me and charge me for the office visit. I was upset by the whole experience.
Excellent people skills, and very knowledgeable. Went in with a toothache and they extracted the tooth right there! Huge relief, and very reassured about the whole process. 5/5
Dr. Platt is GREAT! I had a real toothache problem. He was very attentive and addressed all my dental concerns. And with a gentle touch he fixed my tooth. I will definitely come back and also recommend him to people I know.
I had an appointment today with Dr Platt at 3 and I was right on time. As soon as I got into the office I sat down and I didn't even have to wait 5 minutes before his lovely dental assistant Yandery sat me in the room to take an x-ray of the tooth that was bothering me. As soon as the X-ray was done, Dr Platt came in to look at it and greet me. He was very pleasant and had a very nice sense of humor. He explained to me what was wrong with the tooth and what needed to be done and proceeded to work on my tooth. He was very gentle while doing the work needed on my tooth. I think that if everyone had a nice and funny sense of humor like him the world would be a better place. I would definitely recommend him to other people I know for dental treatment.
I have been going to Dr. Platt for about three years and the service there has gotten worse and worse. After my last experience I have decided to find another dentist. They did not "write down" my appointment from ZocDoc so they forgot I was coming and had scheduled a dental surgery at the same time. Rather than reschedule my appointment, I waited over an hour while the hygienist struggled to figure out how to take my x-rays, taking more than three times the number normally taken. When the doctor finally came to my room after an hour, he still had blood on his sleeve from the other patient and proceeded to spray me with tooth paste and water while he quickly and painfully cleaned my teeth. I left upset, soaking wet and covered in debris and did not make a 6 month appointment. Last straw!
He is wonderful. His skills are superior to any other dentist I have used
Dr. Platt was very easy to talk to & a great listener. He's a very nice person as well as an excellent Dentist. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Also, he seems to have late afternoon & early evening appts. which I like.
I booked a last-minute weekend appointment with Dr Platt after two fillings fell out from a different dentist. He was able to see me right away and did a great job fixing them that day.
Overall it was awful. The technician was clearly over-booked because every time she started working on my x-rays she was called into the other room, leaving me half ready to go. Once the Dr. actually saw me, he was rushed and barely spoke with me. He was also so messy in his work and so was the technician - I had water and toothpaste all over my face and shirt. It was the worst dental experience I have ever had.
Dr. Platt is always on point! You can tell he's really is into his job, not just winging it or in it for profit. He will only make procedures that are needed, not try to cash in with unnecessary work. Dr. Platt tells you what he's doing as he works on you, giving you step by step information, and explaining why this was necessary.
Platt is a very good highly skilled dentist. However, it didn't make a good impression that he and his nurses were trying to push me to buy things that I did not want.
Dr. Platt has been my dentist for the past 15 years. I think that sums it up.
Excellent experience getting my teeth cleaned. Office is clean and very professional. Dr. Platt was fantastic, efficient, and communicative. I highly recommend.
Best Dentist in Brooklyn!
Worst and most painful dental cleaning I've ever had. Doctor was rushed and my shirt was soaked with saliva because of his messy job
He is an excellent dentist! I would recommend to anyone. I waited less then 10min before he started my examination. His staff is polite, efficient, caring, professional. I had dental surgery this afternoon and they got me ready, assisted Dr. Platt, then helped me clean my face afterwards.
Dr. Platt is great. Kind, funny, and apologized for the wait (they were short-staffed, and I had made a last-minute appointment). Technician Lala is great, too.
Everything was good until they told me they didn't take my insurance! Major blow considering I went here because they said they did take it.
My visit with Dr. Platts was amazing!
Like Tina says, "Simply the Best!"
He's very confident and very patient. He told me I could let him know if I felt any pain and he would immediately stop. He also had me hold a mirror up to my mouth so I could really see and understand what he was doing. Great guy.
I was seen right away. Everyone there was polite, and they even seemed to have a sense of humor with each other and enjoy their work. The doctor worked quickly and efficiently, but I never felt that he was rushing.
I'm so happy my friend refereed Me to Dr.Platt. He is very knowledgeable in what he does. I was very please with his work, got me out of pain and felt nothing during my procedure. He was very patient with me as it took me long to get numb but he was very patient and caring. Staff is lovely and very accommodating . I received 2 follow up calls not use to that here in NY. Kudos to all of you and see you in a week. ??
I did not like the nurses and front desk assistant. The doctor and nurse were rude to each other. I wasn't listened to when I said something hurt.
Bad bedside manner. His office does not accept any insurance, contrary to what yelp, zocdoc and his website say. I told Zocdoc but they said it's up to his office to list their details. Zocdoc gave me a nominal giftcard to amazon, the dentist charged me hundreds for what should've been covered by insurance.
that was the messiest dental cleaning I've ever had. I literally had to go home and change my clothes afterward. ridiculous.
I had an emergency and Dr. Platt treated me nicely and quickly and got me out of pain. He took alot of time to explain everything to me. I definitely will be coming back.
I was a new patient and Dr. Platt was recommended to me. He was very pleasant, informative and painless. I would recommend him.
Very rough dentist. Hurt my gums more than most dentists, and got water everywhere. He barks at his female staff and we waited more than an hour to see him.
Devin is awesome, truly does a great job every visit!!!
Great treatment as always. Staff is very friendly and Devin is awesome.
He's phenomenal -- I can't express how much I enjoy working with him as my dentist. He's compassionate, easy going, offers helpful advice and NEVER puts pressure or guilt on you. He also doesn't upsell you on anything. Weekend appointments can occasionally get a little delayed as some people come in with emergencies, but that's unavoidable.
Dr. Platt was so helpful, and his staff was super professional and polite. I will definitely be returning.
Great experience the entire time there. Devin explained everything that needed to get done and was very thorough each step. Definitely would recommend.
Let me start by saying, that I have never left a bad review. I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. That being said, this was the worst dental experience I've ever had. My appointment was at 9:30am in the morning, and I did not leave his office until 12:45pm, making me late for a work event I had a 1pm. I sat in the dentist's chair for over 3 hours, while the whole procedure was probably about 30 minutes or so. I overheard Dr. Platt talking to his upstairs tenant and seeing other patients while I waited. I had emailed over x-rays and Dr. Platt spent probably 30-45mins trying to convert the x-ray pictures into another format. During the actual procedure, he completely manhandled my mouth. He left the suction in the wrong place, and I kept gagging. At one point, I couldn't breathe, but he told me to keep still. Throughout the process, my eyes started to water because of the pain, and never did he ask if I was ok. I got up to use the restroom after the major part was done, and I had blood on my face and tooth shavings everywhere. I was completely drenched and went through 3-4 bibs, but he didn't seem to notice and I had to keep asking for a new dry bib so that my clothes weren't damp.When I left, there were tooth shavings on my cardigan and in my hair. When I went to pay, I thought I was signing up for a payment plan to cover the extra charges that my insurance wouldn't cover. It turned out to be a credit card. When I realized this, I told them that I did not want a credit card and that I would just pay it up front. I paid in full, and then I still received a credit card in the mail a few weeks later that they had signed me up for. I have been trying to contact Dr. Platt's office on a partial refund since I did not complete the crown and to get my mould so I can have another dentist finish the job, but I was told each time that the person I need to speak to isn't there and that they do not have my mould.
The best. Extremely kind, very transparent, really supportive and honestly the best dentist I've ever had. I recommend him to friends all the time.
He acted more like 'your buddy from the streets' than a medical professional. He was also very pushy to get more out of my insurance company when he saw how great my coverage was.
It is always a pleasure be in his hands, he is the best, his experience make me feel so relax.
Very warm and welcoming. Dr.Platt was wonderful and for the first time I wont be scared to go to the dentist anymore. Would highly recommend.
I wish I had gone to him 6 months ago. He is smart, understanding, easy to talk to and he knows what he's doing. Never a doubt in my mind that he was there to help me with my situation.
Everyone was super welcoming and friendly. I had a cavity and they filled it immediately! Dr. Platt was sure to give me all the choices about my treatment options. Everyone in the office is bright, informative and friendly. It is a great environment.
Hadn't been to the dentist in years and just happened to luck out by booking with Dr. Platt through ZocDoc. Very happy that I ended up there! He has a great "bedside" (chair side?) manner, and has done a great job with the work I've had to have done. Occasionally the wait time can be a little long, but otherwise have been very happy with the service provided.
Very professional and clearly explained everything he was doing and what I needed to do.
He's the best.
Dr. Devin Platt made sure I felt comfortable and provided a pain free experience for my procedure. He explained everything thoroughly. I would highly recommend him!
He is a highly competent Dentist, who can deal with a crisis with speed and cunning.
I think Dr. Platt is a solid dentist, but I would never go to his practice again. I was disturbed by the fact that he really pushed me to purchase a mouth guard from him for an extremely high price.
Dr. Platt is a wonderful dentist. It was my first visit to fix a broken tooth and he did it with painless speed and fitted me with a perfect temporary crown. The fact that he had Sunday hours was a godsend.
This doctor solved a long-standing painful mystery that two other dentists (including a specialist) couldn't figure out for a year! He's my hero! And he did it all with a cheerful bedside manner. I'd recommend him hands-down!
Very knowledgeable and kind. Sincerely wants the best for his patients. Thank you for everything Dr. Platt!
Clean and modern office, kind doctor, easy to work with, and a pleasure to visit over and over.
I went in with a toothache and left 1.5 hours later with a root canal. That part sucked, but Dr. Platt was amazing night at determining the *root* of my problem (a poorly done filling was hiding a dying tooth). He immediately went to work on it and did a wonderful job. Root canals are scary but this was painless and fast. The employees working there were lovely--efficient, friendly, and compassionate. This coming from the person who cried in front of each and every one of them! The only thing was--I'm not sure what average costs for root canals and crowns are, but the total was a doozy. Of course I wasn't about to shop around with the pain I was experiencing, so I had to go with it. But the office manager walked me through everything, gave me a number of options, and was just really good at putting me at ease. Despite the sticker shock, I am overall incredibly pleased with my experience. I will not being going back to my regular dentist but will likely be sticking with Dr. Platt. Thanks to everybody there!
An excellent dentist who solved the mystery of year-long pain in my left side upper teeth. It turned out to be a canal of a tooth previously root-canaled, and overlooked by a previous dentist which became seriously infected. This root wasn't even visible on the X-Rays, but Dr. Platt deduced it's existence by the area of the pain, removed a useless bridge and crown and re-root-canaled the tooth (this time properly root-canaling the infected canal and putting me on amoxicillin)! The results: no more pain, a new crown, a new smile, and a fan for life!
Last resort option at best. They don't accept insurance which was a first for me. I was seen immediately given my emergency, but I had to pay before the service and it made more sense to find another doctor on zoc doc than deal with that.
My visit with Dr. Platt was very pleasant. He was very professional and made me feel comfortable as his patient during the dental visit. He also gave me good feedback on questions I had about my teeth. I would highly recommend him to other people who are in need of a dentist.
My visit with Dr Platt was very good he take his Time to explain everything to you the staff are very lovely they make you feel welcome and like your are a part the family Dr platt and his staff are very friendly to the costume so I'm glad I went to visit they office
Dr. Platt is very thorough and explains everything
Unfortunately I am unable to understand how Dr. Platt has so many positive reviews. On both visits I had, the first for a general check up and cleaning and the second for a filling, Dr. Platt was rough and unprofessional. On my first visit I waited in the chair while he took multiple phone calls. At one point I was ready to leave and then he walked in and made a comment like "keep me away from the phone." In addition to the technician making me extremely uncomfortable with the x-rays, Dr. platt was rough and proceeded to spray water all over my face and hair. It wasn't s light mist but literally water dripping out of my mouth down my shirt and completely taking off my makeup. I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He told me my teeth looked pretty good yet I needed to have a cavity replaced and there were some other areas of decay. So on my next visit I should not have been surprised that once again my shirt was now soaking wet, water was all over my face and my hair. He did not seem to care as he saw me wiping off my face multiple times. I could live with that if it wasn't for the neck pain I endured as he yanked my head to the side to face him instead of him moving behind my chair so I could sit comfortably. As he worked on the tooth decay and composite filling, he seemed a bit careless and rushed. He mentioned that my appointment would take longer than he stated because I asked so many questions about the now 8 fillings I needed instead of 2 which would come at an additional cost (although I had insurance). I was baffled that he would be so insulting about a patient asking questions and then blamed me for not understanding at the first appointment that i needed 8 fillings...8 FILLINGS! In addition to all this (which should have been enough to leave), during my second visit he touched a dirty looking fan plug with his gloves on and then used those same gloves in my mouth. Later during the appointment someone came into the office and again he put his hands on the door frame while leaning out to talk to the person. When I decided not to have him do the 8 fillings and stop at the three he was not annoyed with me, but seemed understanding. However when I wouldn't make an appointment right away for the other 5 fillings I supposedly needed, he said something along the lines of "make an appointment...you don't want to have a root canal." You can understand my confusion over his weird manipulation from the first appointment to the end of my second! I went from having a great check-up to being on the verge of a root canal with 8 fillings. I've had some awesome dentists where I'm from and I'm sad to say that Dr. Platt lacked professionalism, cleanliness and communication(did I mention the eye rolling that occurred when I tried to understand why I needed eight fillings and told him I wasn't sure I could afford it). Do yourself a favor and try another dentist.
Very knowledge doctor!
The wait times are unacceptable for anyone with a full schedule. Though the doctor is compassionate and relatable, the staff came off as highly unprofessional, and the experience I had was highly uncomfortable. Would not reccomend.
Even though I was a but nervous at first, the dentist and his assistants were wonderful. They were patient and informative, and I felt like they all really cared about the neighborhood.
Such a great guy, great staff
I really like him. He explained everything to me and had a great bedside manor.
Dr. Platt was very professional, friendly, and helpful. He explained everything to me along the way, and he was very understanding of my sensitive teeth and gums. Best dentist I've seen in New York!
A very pleasant experience, as far as dentist's visits go! I did have to wait a while to be seen, but I understodd the circumstances of his delay was not very bothered by the extra wait time. The doctor and staff were very accomodating and apologetic about the wait time so overall the experience was enjoyable :)
I selected Dr. Platt because he was highly rated, in the neighborhood .not to mention I was in a great deal of pain. As I approached the office, I received a text stating that the doctor would be 30 minutes late. I would have appreciated that notification earlier since i now had to wait outside in the hot sun for a half an hour. I will admit that there was a water main break the previous night. As a result several nearby streets were cut off. As stated in previous reviews, the office was clean. The receptionist was cordial. The dental assistant was rough and impatient. Dr. Platt was a complete nightmare. Upon entering the room, 10:20, he turns his back to me as he introduced himself. "I'm Dr. Platt pleased to meet you," with his posterior taking the place of eye contact or a handshake. (Sorry doc, I didn't believe you!) He also at no time addressed his tardiness. Anyway, he asked several questions which I had difficulty answering due to the pain. I nodded to some; gave thumbs up to others and spoke through my teeth. This appeared to be insulting to the doc. He began waving his hands and saying in a loud voice "HELLO"! That was when I felt that I did not want to deal with Dr. Platt anymore. I told him I would gladly pay for the x-rays and asked his receptionist to please forward them to me. Dr. Platt sat down and forwarded them on the spot to his credit he also waved the examination fee. For this I thanked him. However,for some reason he felt this would be a good time to lecture me on the importance of co-operation. When I did not respond, he asked me if there was a problem. I smiled because again, talking was painful. Perhaps he didn't consider my 30 minute wait in the sun a form of co-operation.
Very professional, helpful and kind. Highly recommended.
Dr. Platt has been a fantastic dentist that I found through ZocDoc 2 years ago. He always explains things well, runs on time and provides excellent dental care. When I had tooth pain and made an appointment on ZocDoc for the following business day, he called me to check on my pain level and offer suggestions for managing it until I say him.
Wait time was actually longer, but they had squeezed in an emergency, and stayed late to do all my work. Nobody likes waiting, but they're usually right on time, and were very nice about the whole thing.
I came in as a new patient for a long-overdue cleaning that had become time-sensitive because of some irritation at the gumline. Dr. Platt was very kind, and I enjoyed him showing me all the stuff on the x-rays as well as his explanations for what he was doing and why. (I think he picked up on my curiosity.) The techs were both very gentle and sweet. Oh, and they fit me in at very short notice, even though I don't think I was a real emergency. Also, my gums don't hurt anymore. Highly recommended!
Very pleasant! Made me feel comfortable and the staff was very friendly as well. Didn't feel rushed at all... Dr. Platt took his time to explain things and put my mind at ease.
I was very pleased with the visit. Sat down and was immediately impressed that they took X-rays of my whole mouth to see if there was anything lurking underneath. Also when Doctor Platt came in he took the time to review each slide, showing me and explaining what is going on, if everything was ok and putting me at ease. The rest of the visit was great, he explained to me each step as he was about to do it. He really knows what he is doing and really got in there working on my teeth, which I liked a lot. He also taught me how to manage and take care of my teeth. By the time I left, I felt like I had a brand new smile. I would and already have recommended someone to see this doctor.
Very thorough, answered all my questions. Friendly and knowledgable.
I haven't been to the dentist in far, far too long. While the wait was more than an hour today, it was because Dr. Platt was taking care of a patient with an emergency. I'm glad I waited though because even though I'm super anxious about dentists, he was patient, non-judgmental, clear and thorough. Highly recommend.
Absolutely impressed from the moment he called to have us come in.. No wait at all. Love that he is on call and takes emergency patients right away. Works weekends! He is officially our new dentist.
In my life time I've had three dentist not including Dr.Platt. He's very upfront patient an takes the time out to explain everything. I'm afraid of dentist but Dr.Platt made me feel very comfortable.
He was very knowledgeable and informative during my appointment. He was extra careful to make sure I was numb before doing any drilling and he was sure to keep checking up on me during my fillings procedure.
Professional, friendly, nice bedside manner. Went to the home office/Eastchester location. More well equipped than I would have guessed for a home dental office! Was up-front about what would/would not be covered by insurance and what I would owe for the visit.
Dr. Platt is an excellent dentist. He contacted the patient in less than 30 minutes after explaining the emergent problem on ZocDoc screen. Dr. Platt gave excellent advise to stay comfortable and his cell number just in-case. The next day, I went to the office and received excellent treatment from both the doctor and the staff. I will continue to be Dr. Platt's patient.
I was early and figured I have a long wait. Wrong, they pulled my zoc doc files and set me in the chair for my appointment really fast. Going to a dentist has kinda been an intimidating idea. I was given X-rays and felt a bit uncomfortable due to the tool being used. Can "they" invent a tool a bit softer? Haha... Fast forward, the doctore comes in we have a brief chat and appt done. All in all I had a good experience and would visit again.
As always, very good....Him and his staff are very good
I was extremely afraid of the dentist, however thanks to Dr. Platt I no longer afraid and pretty much informed about dental hygiene.
I normally really dislike going to the dentist but Dr. Platt made me feel so at ease! He took the time to go over everything with me and explain what he was doing and why every step of the way. I was completely comfortable and actually learned a few interesting things! He even offered to go over what all the different dental insurance plans had to offer when I switched jobs. Would highly recommend!!
Very informative towards reasons why you must and must not do things according to your mouth hygiene.
Vey thorough and explains all procedures, including showing me x-rays. All of this staff is super friendly and helpful too. Has a wide variety of appointment times.
This was my first time combining here, the receptionist was very pleasant. It was a good visit beside the long wait but the doctor personally came out and apologized for the long wait and explained that they were in repair of the X-ray machine and that was reason for delay . That was very kind and professional of him to explain.
He is a great at what he does.
Dr. Platt is the best!
He's been my dentist for nearly 20 years. Never had better!
Very straightforward and no-nonsense. For me, that was awesome. Also down to earth and willing to explain everything.
The office was dirtier than I'm used to for a dentist's office.
Dr. Platt and his staff are super friendly and attentive! I came in as a new patient for a cleaning without realizing I didn't have all my insurance information. Dr. Platt and Donna didn't mind, and took the time to call my provider, making sure everything was squared away. Lala took my X-rays right away and was really sweet. Dr. Platt did the cleaning himself and explained each tool he was using as he used it, keeping me in the loop of the whole process. I really enjoyed learning as all the gunk from my teeth was scrubbed away. Definitely recommend Dr. Platt to anyone looking for a new dentist in BK.
Absolutely the best dentist out there!!!
He was extremely kind. He did have to bounce back and forth a bit between rooms but his staff was extremely friendly and present and came in to check on me a lot. Lala and Lucy were so funny and helpful. Dr. Platt did my teeth cleaning his self. I've never had a dentist do that before. I think it was because it was my first time there and he wanted to get to know his new patient, either way it was really cool. He reviewed my xrays immediately and was able to point out areas and teeth I want to watch, and gave me some tips for the future. I had a cavity, and he was able to fill it immediately. He even let me take a mirror and watch the steps of him removing and filling the cavity, which if you aren't grossed out by that stuff, is really cool. I have anxiety about getting cavities filled, but it was the most painless and pleasant cavity experience I've had. I didn't even feel the numbing shots. He spent a good amount of time making sure the bite on the newly filled molar was correct as well. He gave me some signs to look for with my filling just in case it may need a root canal in the future (the cavity was deep), but said he wouldn't recommend one now as he was able to get all the decay out before hitting the root, and the root was alive and healthy. I found that extremely honest. He didn't recommend an unnecessary procedure or products just because i had insurance and could potentially need it in the future. Honesty goes a long way in my book. My only recommendation for Dr. Platt would be to let your staff help more with the cleanings so you don't have to run back and forth, and to trust that you have an absolutely amazing and attentive group of ladies working there. I don't think a single one didn't come into my room and talk with me or assist me in some way. Lucy helped me schedule my next appointment. I will definitely be coming back, and scheduling my husband in. PS: My teeth are SO clean.
Dr. Platt explained everything clearly, and walked me through the decision process in a cohesive and professional manner. It was great having that level of transparency, and I feel I was able to make an informed choice.
Doctor was very attentive, he explained everything to me, and took his time to answer all my questions, the office is very modern and clean. doctor was very gentle and they called me the next day to check up on me of my dental procedure... Excellent Staff members...
Dr. Platt seems so friendly and thoughtful that I wonder if I just saw him on a hectic day, but the experience today was pretty bad. I spent a little over an hour waiting for a cleaning: first in the waiting room for half an hour, then in the chair for another forty minutes. During the 20 minutes he was doing my cleaning, he went back to check on another patient a few times and answered a phone call, which made me feel like I didn't really have his full attention. I also was splattered with water and paste throughout the cleaning, with the hygienist literally having to towel me down before I left--something I'd never experienced before. I really like his manner and the cleaning was OK, but all of that added up to a pretty unpleasant experience.
He is really good at his job and he enjoyed it. When he say that u won't feel "any pain", please believe it!! He did some work on me and it was great!!
He re did a filling in one of my big molars that I was having sensitivity issues with from a previous filling with another dentist. He did a great sculpting job leaving a perfectly restored tooth.
it was okay,
Dr. Platt is very passionate about dentistry! It's funny to say, but true. He takes the time to thoroughly explain every little thing and answers any questions. I even mentioned that I had started using an electric toothbrush, and he explained the best way to use it, the right amount of pressure to use, and pulled out my xrays to show how it will affect the top of my teeth compared to my gumline. The only time I've ever had to wait was when Dr. Platt was doing a difficult filling (he explained) that was close to the root and he was trying to avoid the person needing to get a root canal, so it took longer than scheduled. So I didn't mind waiting, knowing that it was because he takes so much care with his work.
Dr. Platt and his offices come from a different era - and that's not a bad thing. He takes his time to do things right, despite technological advances made in dentistry to do things faster and/or easier. To reference a management maxim, Dr. Platt seems to have chosen the good and cheap (if he accepts your insurance) avenue - fast, I find, while always a perk, doesn't necessarily translate well to medicine. The staff are wonderful as well. I really can't recommend Dr. Platt enough.
Very bad. Waited nearly an hour for X-rays then another 20 minutes for the doctor to spend 5 minutes cleaning before handing off to staff. Most painful clean ever. Toothpaste flying all over my clothes, water splashing on my face and running down my neck. Never again.
Listed as taking MetLife insurance and MetLife PDP, not actually in network. Oddities in billing did not make me confident. Never going back.
my wait time was very lengthy, however his staff was very polite, and accommodating. Dr. Platt is a little rough when performing his cleaning but overall a good doctor. He gives good recommendations and advice, although I wish he'd explain the procedure a bit more. I had an overall great experience.
I haven't had my check up with Dr. Platt yet, but my husband did. Dr. Platt is very personable and friendly, knowledgeable and explains things before hand. Dr. Platt takes pride in his cleaning ability and his staff.
Dr Platt was nice enough to me, but he was very condescending to his office staff, which I found off putting. Some equipment was not working and he kept yelling at them and leaving me alone during my appointment. It was just very uncomfortable. And that was after I waited over an hour, because they had not called my insurance company until I asked them about it.
Dr. Platt and the rest of the staff were great. Very friendly and helpful.
Great! Really patient and down to earth. Put me at ease before going to work on me. Explained everything he was doing and why it was important to my health. Anyone who has fears of going to the dentist should give him a shot!
Best dental appointment I've ever had. Quick, easy and painless! A+ for Dr. Platt and his staff.
My experience at Dr. Platt's office was great.. My appointment was at 11 am and I was in the chair by 11:02 am. Staff are friendly and Dr. Platt makes you feel comfortable with his professionalism and sense of humor. Highly recommend this Dentist's office.. *Thumbs Up*
After a history of bad dental experiences, Dr Platt put me at ease and didn't judge for my lapse in preventative care, just encouraged the path forward. Highly recommended.
Dr. Platt is very thorough with my cleaning! My teeth haven't felt so good for a long time. I appreciate him doing the cleaning himself, instead of letting some under-qualified hygienist do the job. Thank you, Dr. Platt.
Dr. Platt was extremely patient, professional, and caring. He made sure I was comfortable every step of the way and understood my fear of pain, especially with the Novocaine. I usually cry when getting injected, but he went nice and slowly to make sure to minimize any pain. He also was incredibly empathetic and open to all my questions about the procedure, follow up, pricing, etc. And after the visit, made himself fully available to me for any follow up questions or concerns. I was a new patient, and this experience with Dr. Platt has been my best dental experience to date (and I've seen about 20 dentists in my time because I lived in 10+ cities).
After visiting plenty of bad Dentists who claimed to be good, my coworker referred me to Dr. Platt. I walked in thinking he was just going to be another one from that list but, I think I am in love!!! And I don’t mean it like that, but in all honesty he is great! He explains everything to you in simple English, he tells you step by step what he is doing to your teeth and is pain-free. I didn’t feel anything and will be returning today to get the job finished. He has options of payment and is very friendly. I will be returning to post another review after a few visits, but so far the best Dentist I have ever been to since I was born.
Dr Platt was great! I would have been seen right away if there wouldn't have been issues with my insurance. He personally came out and tried to sort it out with me for over an hour. When we had exhausted our options, he offered me a HUGE discount so that I could pay out of pocket and submit to my insurance company later. My only complaint was that the office girls seemed a bit scattered...
Dr. Platt and his staff are absolutely amazing. They were helpful and polite from the moment I walked in. Donna the office manager was helpful in explaning what was going on as well as Dr. Platt who walked me through my options. The dental assist whose name I cant remember was very gentle and considerate. Overall it was a great trip to the dentist how often can a person say that! I will be returning and I encourage anyone else to book an appointment.
Dirty office. Extremely rough hygienist. A little bleeding is to be expected, but this woman was seriously rough-housing my mouth. Old equipment, super small operating room. Dr. Platt is very friendly, but I'm not looking for a friend. I'm looking for an all-around great dentist.
He go the job done well in the end, but it was painful and unprofessional.
I went thinking it'd just be a one-time visit (my regular dentist was out of town) but was so impressed by how personable and attentive Dr Platt is, that I'm going to start coming to him instead of my old dentist.
I wont be going back. Sloppy cleaning.
Dr Platt was great and I will return. He's definitely a no BS doctor; I had the best cleaning of tarter off my teeth that I have ever had, but it didn't come with fuzzy bunnies and slippers. It was definitely a little painful, but he did what he had to do. I think maybe other dentists were easy on me; I would highly recommend, but not if you don't want your teeth REALLY cleaned - pain or no pain!
Only reason there was a wait was because of a snafu with my insurance company. Had nothing to do with them. They were absolutely great.
The doctor was very nice and professional. I agree with the other reviewers that the doctor has a good bedside manner. However, the staff was very flustered. Though they were all pleasant, they seemed really stressed out. It was over an hour wait for my appt. I'll probably go back but I wouldn't recommend with flying colors.
I thought he was great. It was a busy day in his office but he still was really gentle, kind, and took his time with me.
Poor experience, one of the worst I've ever had
I have severe dental phobia, and Dr. Platt was wonderful at easing my anxiety. I broke a filling, and he was able to see me right away. He was professional, gentle and talked me through the whole process. He takes pride in doing the work correctly the first time and is clearly passionate about what he does. Bottom line, he wants you to be comfortable, happy, and healthy. In addition, his hygienists and his receptionist are some of the nicest and friendliest women you'll ever meet. I'm so glad I'm in good hands with Dr. Platt!
You don't get to say this often, but what a great dentist visit today. Came in with a gnarly tooth (very bad cavity) needing a root canal and a few other things. I knew this going in and Dr Platt gave me a few options on how to approach it with no pressure for either one. With our decision made, he went right to work and finished it up in no time—a procedure I had expected would take a number of appointments, but took only an hour or so. There was no pain and Dr Platt and his team made absolutely sure that I was comfortable. I would normally never suggest that anyone get a root canal, but Dr Platt made it such a great experience that I'd go back for another without question (knock on wood that I don't have to).
Dr. Platt is professional and gives good advice based on what he would expect as a patient which I really appreciate. He was thorough and didn't recommend any unnecessary services (I've had this happen in the past with other dentists). He's also super close to me so that makes a visit to his office very convenient. There was a small wait but that was due to a misunderstanding from rescheduling the appointment.
Dr. Devin Platt, DDS was very kind and had great bedside manner which I usually find is a difficult combination to find in some professionals that are very good at their craft. He made my dentist appointment as pleasant as a dental appointment can be. There was no wait either time I went (6p appointments), he works late to accomodate his working patients and takes the time to explain everything he did and what you need to do to maintain your teeth going forward. The supporting staff was bilingual (spanish) and friendly. Downtown service at uptown prices. Couldnt ask for more.
I felt rushed throughout my check-up as if the Dr. overbooked. I also did not appreciate the hard sell on teeth whitening that the Dr. tried to convince me to get.
Very informative! Made me feel comfortable. He is not in my network but I am planning on changing my insurance to stay with him! Highly recommend him!
Knowledgable and good.
Dr. Platt went really out of his way to make me feel taken care of. Very good.
Dr. Platt was very friendly and talkative. He clearly cares about his patients. I was overall happy with my visit, but I thought he could have been a bit gentler with my cleaning, it was a little rough.
It was ok
One word:Excellent. He is my dentist from now on. He was very thorough & makes you feel at ease. He even gave me his email address incase I had any question which was cool.His bedside manner was excellent. I highly reccommend him.
The age of the office betrays the professionalism of Dr. Platt. I was initially turned off by how old the equipment was, but Dr. Platt was far and beyond what I expected, and I appreciate that he takes care of cleanings himself. He was also attentive and very detailed, noting that some of my fillings may need to be looked at in the future.
He was very clear and reassuring of the work that was going to be performed which made any nervousness go away. His staff was also courteous and professional in handling the paper work that was needed to cover the expenses and files.
Dr. Platt makes sure you get what you need – and only what you need. He won't do unnecessary work, and spends extra time making sure you're informed and comfortable with your teeth (this leads to longer wait times, but is worth it).
I went in for a cleaning and found out I needed two fillings and both were done right away.
He was good. Took his time to do the job right.
Very friendly and proffessional staff. Dr. Platt was chatty and explained everything in detail. He gave plenty of advise. No wait time.
Dr. Platt was thorough and friendly. A great dental experience
I'm very happy to call Dr. Platt MY dentist. Superb in every aspect - thorough and percise. Wish I could clone him.
Liked doctor himself. Staff was disorganized and seemed rushed.
He was very nice and very easy to talk to. I was a little nervous since it's been a while since my last checkup, but he was not judgmental at all.
Excellent staff and excellent service performed by the dentist..
. Very rude assistants
Highly recommended. Kind and down to earth. Efficient exam and straightforward explanation of the dental problem+solution. Saturdays seems to be busy there, but the wait time was about what I expected since I was a new patient.
Easy and great. He's very personable and honest.
Excellent bedside manner. He immediately put me at ease, and I am generally very nervous about dentist appointments.
Dr. Platt's has excellent bedside manner. He spent time explaining different procedures and answering my questios.
Dr. Platt was wonderful - very thorough, charming, and quick. He took time to explain not only what what would be happening during my visit, but also how my insurance would cover it and what I could expect. No fuss, no guilt, no bs. Best dentist experience I've had in years.
Very professional and easy to talk to, Dr. Platt explains the procedures to you with ease and for me that was important.
Dr Platt is professional, blunt, and a great dentist. His assistant Lila (sp?) however, was really rough with the polishing and did a cursory job - not sure if she even polished every tooth. Lots of the paste went down my throat.
I had not been to the dentist in 3 years...needless to say, I was a little apprehensive. BUT, Dr. Platt was kind. He didn't judge, or nag, or make me feel like a terrible person. Instead, he told me exactly what was wrong, how we'd go about fixing it, and how we'd prevent problems in the future. I appreciated the candor. I always do. I am...get this...looking forward to the next appointment! Now, I'm not really a dentist-phobe, my reasons for not seeing a dentist for so long were insurance-related, but I was starting to develop a fear of dentists. Not anymore, all fears totally dissipated. Have no reservations about making an appointment here. You'll be glad you did, even if you have a mild fear of dentists!
Dr. Platt is very friendly and makes his patients feel comfortable. He explains procedures well and doesn't make patients wait long to be seen.
Dr Platt is an awesome Brooklyn dentist. modern tools, great chair-side manner. We will be going back.
He was very prompt and gave very good information about options and advice.
Dr. Platt was extremely nice and explained my condition to me thoroughly. He also went over with me what the next steps to getting better would be and I was confident that I would be well under his care. His office is super clean and his attendants are friendly and jovial. I would recommend his practice to anyone looking for truly wonderful dental care.
Great dentist, very pleasant staff! Saw both my wife and myself, and was amazing with both of us. Will be recommending to our many friends.
The visit with the actual dentist was great. He's got great bedside manner, and I like that he explains what's going on as he does it. There was one problem though. When I came to sign in at the front desk, they didn't see my appointment in their schedule. The receptionist then asked how I made the appointment. I said I made it with ZocDoc, and she seemed to understand why it wouldn't be in her schedule. I received an email confirmation from their office, so I don't understand how this happened. It pushed my appointment back by about half an hour. I wasn't particularly in a rush that day, but it was still inconvenient.
Friendly, lots of good explanations.
