There's a ton of dentists in the tristate area but nobody compares to Dr. Shkurti and his staff. The office is super clean, the equipment is the latest and the greatest and the doctor and staff are respectful and deeply knowledgeable.I recently completed my 8th crown and my smile looks like a million dollars. I've used many dentist in the last 20 years but only Dr. Shkurti took the initiative to evaluate my entire situation and recommend a path towards healthier teeth and a cosmetically appealing look. I wholeheartedly recommended Dr. Shkurti's clinic and I'm confident you will be as satisfied as I am.

The wait time was crazy, the front desk girl is alwsys nice but the bed side manner is horrible. They left me in the room aline a long time. I told the wife came in and asked me if i hada cleaning and i told her yes but i paid cash , i didnt use mt insurance somewhere else. I told her i just wanted an exam and xrays. So she took the bag with the toothpaste and tooth brush you get on your visit. Which i dont care but it looks bad she came in there and did that. Than they come in and are talkin in there language in the room and walk out. Thann the asssitant comes in and takes xrays and by mistake pulls my hair with the xray protectant and just (wow you have pretty long hair) . Than half and hour later the doctor comes back in the room and exam me in 5 minutes and said i have 2 cavities and i need to come back. I was there 2 times already, i work in the medical field 8 years and i strongly believe in patient care, and they dont know the meaning of patient care. I would advise not to come here.

Completely awful. I have honestly never had a worse dental experience in my life. I was there for 2 hours for a annual cleaning. The DR tries to up-sell you at every possible opportunity. The hygienist didnt seem to have aclue about what she was doing and the doctor was crass. Then they had the audacity to ask me if I would like to schedule a follow up with them. As if I have some innate desire to relive this terrible experience. I am definitely going back to my old dentist in Manhattan.

I love this place! I’ve been to quite a few dentist in my time in the UK and in the US and would rate this the best practice I have seen! It is immaculately clean, they use the most hi texhequipment, all the staff are helpful, friendly and very professional, and Mr Sckurti is a wonderful dentist who makes you feel at ease and does a fantastic job. I highly recommend this place to everyone!!

I had been going to an amazing dentist and moved so I tried out Dr. Shkurti. I had to wait 45 mins to be seen. When I was placed in the chair the assistant took pictures of my teeth and hadme watch a 5 minute video on invisalign. When Dr. Shkurti came into the room he gave me a 5 min lecture on the need for invisalign, cleaned my teeth very hurriedly without flossing them, never checked for cavities, never addressed my teeth grinding issue and neglected another ongoing issue I have had. He ended by talking about invisalign again after handing me the token toothbrush. This is a total racket and I won't be going back. Oh and by the way - my teeth are almost perfectly straight!

One of the worst dentist experiences I’ve ever had! First time I visited Dr. Shkurti, he tried to sell me Invisalign. He also never even informed I had a cavity during that visit. I had to find out from the frontdesk. The second time I visited him was for the cavity filling. Thought I might try him but now I completely regret it. He showed up 30 minutes late to the appointment and didn’t apologize. Then he began the filling and didn’t inform me about the process at all. It was my first time getting a filling and I asked him for the process. He briefly told me in a few seconds but I soon realized that he didn’t inform me of everything he was doing. It took him almost 40 minutes to fill my cavity and the entire time, he never updated me or filled me in on what he was doing. Then he informed me near the end that my tiny cavity was actually huge and he didn’t see that in the scan before. However when he showed me the scan, it was in there. When I finally left, the receptionist tried to sell me Invisalign again and told me it was my only option. Absolutely horrible experience. The only thing I will say is that the hygienist was incredible! The nicest lady and she was so sweet the whole time. She really made sure I was okay before the doctor came in.

Since I was a new client, I made sure to arrive at the dentist office 15 minutes before my appointment start time. I was not addressed by the receptionist until 30 minutes past the start of my appointment time (45 minuteswait). After I filled out all of the paperwork required, it was an additional 20 minute wait to go in for my X-rays. Should be noted that there was only one other patient inside at the time, a technician and who seemed like a lead receptionist out front and even still they were disappointingly slow in getting me into the system and ready for my appointment. After the scans were taken, I was escorted to a chair, where I sat and waited for the dentist for another 35 minutes! Ridiculous! All in all there was over an hour and a half wait to see the dentist past my appointment time. While I understand that perhaps the other patient needed more attention nobody from the front came to communicate how long it would be since I just had to sit there in the chair. Dr. Shkurti was very friendly, but his cleaning technique was extremely rough and painful. Even after he applied topical anesthetic, which I've never had another dentist do for me, the process was very painful and my teeth & gums hurt for a whole day afterwards - something I have never experienced with any other dentist. I was left with a sore and bloody mouth to gargle after all was done. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I am disappointed it has such good reviews on ZocDoc and other sites, which is why I initially selected it. I suggest finding somewhere else that is punctual and where a basic cleaning doesn't hurt!

I was really worried about doing a root canal, however the stuff was so friendly and accommodating. Made sure I am comfortable and told me everything about the procedure. Doctor was really patient and took his time to make sure everythingwas done right. Two days after I don't feel any pain or discomfort. Next time i wont be so scared.
