Verified Patient Reviews
I grew up with a serious Dental Phobia that gave me very bad anxiety when it came time to go to the Dentist. After my time With Dr. Alvarez that anxiety has ceased. Thank you Sir
Dr Alvarez is a brilliant dentist, and a kind and gentle man. He keeps up on the most advanced technology, which means that he's able to keep procedures to a minimal amount of time and pain. He may be the best dentist in New York.
Dr Alverez is absolutely amazing. I've been a patient for several years and he always does great work, is accommodating and super considerate of dental work not being my favorite thing. I've referred many friends to him and they all love him too. A+++++
Dr. Alvarez and his staff are the best! I have been using him as my dentist for over 15 years. I highly recommend him.
Always the best!! and great staff! Thx!!

I love Dr. Alvarez!! He is truly the best!! I've always had a fear of the dentist. He took all of that fear away. Bedside manner is the greatest too. Very warm, always making sure I'm ok and comfortable.
Superior techniques along with superior care!!!!!! My mother loves to accompany me on all my dental visits. She loves Dr. Alvarez and his amazing staff. They always make us feel like we are visiting family. Alvarez for President!!!!! And Karen for White House Chief!!!!!
This is a professional and immediately clean office. Dr. Alvarez is a joy to be around and an amazing doctor. I travel from Pennsylvania to Manhattan to get the best care.
A superb, caring and professional staff. Highly recommended.
Extremely professional and thorough. Highly recommend.
Dr. Alvarez is such a wonderful doctor, he takes his time, is patient, and is a true artist when it comes to the Botox I have used him for. He is passionate about his job and that's what I appreciate most.
Dr. Alvarez and his staff are extraordinarily helpful and friendly. I have recieved multiple fillings here and I can say that without a doubt, these have been the most pain-free and pleasant instances of dental work I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend this office enough.
I am so afraid of going to a dentist but Dr. Alvarez changed that fear for me! He has the magic touch and a very pleasant bed side manner! I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez as he is a perfectionist and a professional! I have been going to him for the last 5 years.. I have the best smile ever!
I've been a patient so long it is like family when I walk in. They only schedule one patient at a time so there's never a wait and I always have their full attention. Dr. Alvarez gives the best cleanings, I actually don't mind going to the dentist. I used to be a chicken and need gas or a topical for cleanings, now I don't need anything. I have total confidence in him.
Edward is the best dentist I've ever been treated by. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and answered every question I have about the process. You can tell he has a passion for his work and has your best interests in mind. He has also surrounded himself with a staff that is professional, attentive and kind. Every part of the process is pleasant and comfortable, even when they're drilling at your teeth. I can't recommend enough.
A great dentist and a good man. I've been visiting for over a decade and never had a problem.
Amazing Doctor and staff. He takes his time to make sure the job is done right!!!! It was late and didn't rush my appt at all. The staff didn't make me feel as if I was holding them up they made me feel welcomed. I will continue to drive from Nassau county into the city to see Dr Alvarez and staff
Amazingly detail oriented and patient. Fairly priced.
Dr. Alvarez is a rare and remarkable dentist. I have been seeing him for nearly 20 years, and he is consistently prompt, professional and personable. He manages to have you always feel that his attention is directed only to you. He and his staff make sure the dental treatment is as comfortable as possible. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Amazing Dr!!! Will definitely be going back
I am 33 and have had about 5 dentists in my life. I started seeing Dr. Alvarez about a year ago and he will be my dentist until he retires. Extreme attention to detail. Excellent bedside manner. Doesn't push anything extra on you that you don't need. I wouldn't write this unless I meant it. Highly recommend.
He's really gentle, smart and intuitive. He's does a great job and I would highly recommend!
Dr Alvarez always takes special care to make me feel at ease. He takes the time to answer any questions and concerns I have pertaining to my visits. Whether it's a big issue or a small one, with my teeth. It's pretty much a pleasure going to see him!
I have been struggling with new crowns/bridge I had done elsewhere. I went to Dr.Alvarez at a friend's recommendation. He did an amazing job on an upper anterior reconstruction. I am picky about my dentist since I was in the industry for many years, and I have to say....he is TERRIFIC and my smile is BEAUTIFUL!! He is a perfectionist (which I appreciate) with color and shape of the bridge/veneers. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Alvarez without hesitation.
Dr Alvarez is technically excellent but compassionate as well. A great staff. Can't say enough about how pleasant my experience was.
My visit was top notch and as comfortable as can be expected for the type of procedures performed. Considering the amount of dentists that I have been to in the past, I would say that Dr. A provides services that are well above average. However, if you need any crowns for your more visible teeth, discuss your options with him. The crown moulding machine is not a good option for asthetic reasons.
Dr. Alvarez is an excellent dentist!
This was a routine visit for a cleaning, X-rays, and oral exam. As usual, Dr. Alvarez performed the cleaning and exam personally. And, as usual, he was thorough, gentle, friendly, and genuinely concerned about the health of my mouth and my general well-being. I am convinced that this exam was, again, only routine, and not some elaborate procedure, because of Dr. Alvarez's consistent attentiveness and skill in caring for my mouth. No need for me to shop around; I will stick with Dr. Alvarez.
Dr A is awesome - skilled, calm and personable. Office is immaculate and friendly and staff is welcoming. Highly recommend. Diane P.
Dr. Alvarez is the best dentist I have ever visited. I have had serious issues with my teeth since I was a child and no-one was able to restore my smile before. I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for over 8 years now and my teeth and smile look amazing. It changed my life. I am able to smile all the way now ;-) Thank to Dr. Alvarez.
The whole staff is very friendly and professional. I will definitely return again.
I've been going to Dr. Alvarez for a few years now. I was once very afraid of the dentist. Dr. Alvarez removed all of my fear. He is amazing. Not only is he very gentle and thorough, he's very informative and kind. Best dentist ever!!!!
Amazing as always, Doctor Alavarez has the patience of a saint and his staff are all wonderful too.
I have been a patient for many years. I am always completely satisfied, and would recommend Dr. Alvarez without reservation!
Simply the Best. Great staff and high quality professional services. Takes care of my entire family like we are brothers.
Dr. Alvarez has cared for me and my family since he opened his current office almost 15 years ago. Throughout the years he has provided professional, attentive and friendly care without exception. He truly cares about how my family looks and feels and clearly explains every procedure. Even my young son is completely comfortable with Dr. Alvarez. His office is also impeccably clean and fully equipped for every possible dental emergency and in-office procedure. Although I have not taken full advantage of all the state-of-the-art dental and cosmetic procedures he offers, Dr. Alvarez is expert in teeth whitening, laser treatments, Botox and Invisalign. His long-time assistant, Karen, is also friendly, professional and competent. I rarely have a wait time and have never had difficulty making an appointment or getting immediate attention when needed. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez.
Dr. Alvarez is so professional, yet personable. He explained in detail what he would be doing, was super friendly and does an amazing job.
I was recommended by a close friend, now I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for more than a year now, and I will never visit another dentist again. Not only is he highly knowledgable, but friendly and always makes you feel comfortable during any procedure. My first visit over a year ago he corrected an issue I had with fillings that a previous dentist did a very bad job on, which created terrible tooth sensitivity and pain. After Dr. Alvarez corrected the issue I've never had a problem in that area again. Today's visit was for a routine cleaning and X-rays, but I have to say Dr. Alvarez was the most thorough dentist I have gone to even with a simple visit. He explains everything for you to understand and shows compassion. Highly recommend!
I've being going to Dr Alvarez for more than 8 years. He's friendly, professional, explains procedures, and keeps up with the most current technology and equipment. His office is clean and comfortable and his staff are the best!
The best dental experience ive ever had. the staff was attentive and friendly. Answered all of my questions beforehand and made the whole appointment comfortable. Dr Alvarez treated me with consideration, making sure i felt no pain, and gave me updates with pictures of the process so i knew what was going on at all times. I really cant say enough about how good the experience was
Dr.Alvarez is an excellent dentist. I arrived, was seen v. promptly. Xrays were taken that were easy, fast and pain free. They were available to Dr Alvarez immediately. Then Dr Alvarez did a great cleaning of my teeth. V. thorough and skilled job. At the end of my visit he examined my throat, tongue and felt the sides of my neck for any growths.He's a pro through in through and his bedside manner couldn't nicer or more polite.
As always very professional and thorough.
Dr. Alvarez continues to be an outstanding, professional dentist and a warm, caring individual. He is meticulous in his work and seeks to help me maintain optimal oral hygiene. I have no shame in singing his praises. He deserves it!!!
Dr Alvarez stayed late (the night before his birthday) to finish a lot of work for me because my schedule has been tight due to work. He and his staff are thoughtful, kind, explain everything that is going to happen and provide a calm and fun environment in their office. Plus, they play great music ; )
Dr. Alvarez provides high level professional dental care. He takes the time and effort to provide a pleasant experience whether is a simple cleaning to crown construction. I trust Dr. Alvarez with my family and friends because of his outstanding work. Thank You and your staff for being the best!
As usual, he was Amazing! Describing the situation each step of the way and slways making sure I was comfortable.
Dr. Alvarez is friendly yet very professional. I enjoy very much my appointments with him.. He asks the right questions and gives good sound advice.
I was extremely nervous about seeing the dentist. But Eddie made me feel very comfortably. He explained everything he was doing and took his time. It's obvious he cares about his patients.
I love it HERE!
caring demeanor, thorough and articulate: you couldn't ask for more or better.
Dr Alvarez is the best dentist ever, and only dentist I trust.
I've been through many dentists. Dr. Alvarez is by far the best ive seen. fair and thorough. would definitely recommend.
He's the best dentist ever! I feel so lucky that I found him — over five years ago. Dr. Alvarez is incredibly smart, kind, courteous, calm under pressure, considerate, and so much more. And his dentistry is excellent PLUS. His staff couldn't be nicer and is 100% professional. Personal care at its finest. I feel completely at home when I'm there.
I have very high standards when it comes to dentistry, Dr. Alvarez exceeded my expectations. He is very courteous, gentle and professional. Very knowledgable doctor. Reasonable prices.
Dr alvarez has gotten my teeth sparkly and my lips plumped for my wedding ;) he really is the best.
Dr. Alvarez is fantastic. He talks you through each procedure and makes you feel at ease. I have a tough time with ANY doctor as I hate needles and X-rays and poking and prying but Dr. Alvarez is so patient and understanding. He takes his time to get the job done right rather than rushing through to the next patient. I have never been double-booked or had to wait long for the previous appointment to end. His team is obviously efficient but they are also kind and professional. I've been recommended to him by at least 3 separate happy clients and I would definitely HIGHLY recommended him myself.
Dr Alvarez was professional, informative and easy-going. He and is staff were friendly and efficient. They provide a clean client comfortable atmosphere. A perfect consultation experience!
I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Alvarez and never have to wait to start my appointment. Dr. Alvarez is always very clear and informative answering all of my questions. He looks out for your best interest and not having you get any dental work that is not necessary.
He is the best dentist i ever had!
Very professional, and friendly! Made me feel very comfortable. I went in for consultation to check on 4 previous fillings that I had done at another dentist's office in NJ. I was experiencing tooth sensitivity and something just didn't feel right about the fillings that were put in by another dentist 1 year prior. Dr. Alvarez corrected my issue very quickly and efficiently. He replaced my old fillings in two separate visits and I have been pain free and extremely happy with the results ever since. Highly recommend!
Dr Alvarez is the best. He took all of my tooth pain away! Thank you!!
The office is always clean and the staff is kind, warm and welcoming. They make the Dentist a pleasurable experience. Lovely.
Dr. Alvarez is friendly, professional and put this patient at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained the procedure precisely. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
The best dentist in all NYC!!
As always, he never disappoints!
I have been a patient of Dr. Alvarez's for 14 years. I have had several dentists prior to Dr. Alvarez and none of them come close to his attention to detail, compassion, and empathy to you as a patient. I will write a longer review at a later date, but if you are tired of dealing with dentists that deal with you as if you are bringing in your car to be fixed, Dr. Alvarez will be a breath of fresh air.
I never thought i would love going to the dentist!!
He's the best! There's no dentist like him. I'd trust him with my life.
Careful, thorough, expert, cutting-edge, the highest praise.
Dr Alvarez and his staff were very welcoming and compassionate. As someone who is terrified of the dentist, Dr. Alvarez checked with me on how I was doing and explained what he was doing step by step. The vibe in the office is very relaxed and caring. Best of all no scary dentist smell!
All good as always. Dr. Alvarez is a conscientious professional who knows what he's doing. I've been seeing him for close to a decade and have no complaints.
Dr. Alvarez was cordial and respectful. He took the time to explain what the issues were along with a couple of options for the solution. I appreciated being in control of my health!
I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for about a decade now, so obviously I think he is great. He has done a lot of work on me as my old dental work from childhood was due for an overhaul. I have had crowns, filling replacements and cleanings. Dr. Alvarez is a perfectionist who keeps up on the latest technology. He is also a kind person who does all he can to make any work done as painless as possible. The staff is very nice also. I also appreciate that he recommends only really necessary procedures and doesn't try to push anything he doesn't think is needed.
an excellent dentist, explains everything in detail. Takes his time, very friendly and knowledgable
he is the only dentist i trust and would recommend him to all!
Consummate skill, personal warmth, generosity to a fault. I know there are other dentists, but I don't understand why if Dr. Alvarez is available.
First acupuncture treatment went great. He is the best dentist I have ever been to and highly recommend him to anyone.
It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Alverez. He's not only a great dentist but a friend. His staff is friendly and professional and his office is clean and conveniently located. He's done eveything from my veneers and Invisalign to my Botox and fillers! He's my one stop shop and I wouldn't look my best without him. I'm always getting tons of compliments though no one can tell what I've had done. Thanks Dr. A!
He's terrific: smart, kind, gentle, does excellent work, is highly professional, and he also has an excellent staff. Beyond that, he's honest. I've been to dentists who press patients to do as much work as possible because they see dollar signs. Beyond all that, his ultra clean office is beautifully designed for form and function. I highly recommend Dr. Alvarez! If you use my review, you may not use my appointment date, but you may use April 2014.
Personable professional excellent training, great attention to detail and cares a lot about the details, wants his work to be as close to perfect as possible plus takes extra pain to reduce pain. Flexible, very caring, really an incredible dentist. Interesting that he also offers services for migraine treatment, facial cosmetics as well as dental cosmetics. Really unique and excellent doctor. Staff is gracious, helpful, pleasant. Office environment peaceful. He has up to date and cutting edge equipment and techniques. 5 stars on every level
Ed is very personable and caring, and also has excellent technical skills. I have been with him for years and am very satisfied!
Dr Alvarez is extremely gentle and caring. The only dr I look forward to seeing!!
Doctor Alvarez was amazing!! He is extremely knowledgeable and takes care in explaining exactly what he is doing. He has cutting edge equipment to deliver the best treatment you can get. His dental assistant and front desk staff are VERY friendly and helpful. It's the best dental experience you will have. I actually look forward to going to the dentist. You MUST go and see him!!
In addition to taking personal interest in all of his patients, Dr. Alvarez is extremely thorough and professional. His equipment is state of the art, and his industry knowledge is always up-to-date.
He is the best dentist I ever had. He is a perfectionist and at the same time very gentle. He puts his heart into his work. Dr. Alvarez gave me an amazing smile. Thank you ;-)
Always a great experience.
DR. Alvarez is a conscientious professional. I have been seeing him for years and only have good things to say about him and his work. He did replace some fillings with a laser drill years ago, and the work seems to be holding up very well. I will never go back to mechanical drilling, that's for sure.
He is professional, compassionate, and gentle. He is concerned with the patient's comfort. His state of the art equipment is painless and efficient. He is an interested and interesting person and his staff are brilliant, efficient and friendly. I recommend him to all my friends.
Dr. Alvarez is by far the best Dentist I have ever been to. He performed root canal on me and I was able to go back to work immediately after the appointment. He always explains everything thoroughly and is up to date on the latest innovations including lasers v. drills and can even mill a crown while you wait!
always on time, always extremely professional and friendly I look FORWARD to my dental visits
Dr. Alvarez is very gentle, kind and very accommodating. He and his staff put you in a relaxed state. They explained procedures very well so I understood his recommendations and felt very comfortable and eager to follow the recommended plan. Nice office.
