I went to see Dr Buyco for a cleaning and she was very thorough with her explanations of my x-rays and answered all my lingering questions regarding some sensitivity. I was seen right away and did not have to wait which was great since I went during my lunch break. Her office is very high-tech, all forms and x-rays are available digitally which was nothing like any other dentist office I have been to. The great view of St Patrick's Cathedral was just a bonus!

I went today to get a second opinion about a treatment plan that I was given last week. Ericka took time to review carefully my situation, she listen to all of my questions and concerns and she answered thoroughly explaining pro and cons about the different alternative way of proceeding. She was very honest and open to work with me but at the same time she was able to make me understand the priorities and the advantage of acting in a certain way rather than other. Also her assistant was very kind and helpful. I recommend her to anyone that is looking for an honest professional that would give you a special dedicated high quality service.

When I walked into her office, I felt immediately relieved. I am someone who has had some dental anxiety in the past and it is very difficult to find a dentist who I feel comfortable around. Dr. Buyco is friendly, knowledgable and her staff made me feel right at home. The office is clean and modern. Her equipment is high tech (all electronic) and up to date. She is very gentle and explains every step of the procedure to me. I am very happy with her service and her whitening treatment was not as nearly as painful as I have had previously. I have recommended her to all my friends and will be seeing her again for my regular dental care.

Dr Buyco is the very best! I saw her for emergency work as I was in extreme tooth pain, and she walked me through exactly what was wrong, showing me the x-rays, and explaining in thorough detail next steps to stop the pain but also begin comprehensive treatment. When I walked into her office not only was I in pain, but I am also a person who is terrified of the dentist. She was so friendly and kind, and stopped to check on me, making sure I was comfortable and ok. Dr Buyco genuinely cares about her patients and their dental health. I followed Dr Buyco to her new practice which is in a great location! The views are incredible and her team is wonderful. I highly recommend Dr Buyco and her team!

I have been seeing Dr. Buyco for the past 3 years as her dental patient and was very supportive to continue to see her when she decided to start her own practice. The office space was very new, clean and has an amazing view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral as you sit in the chair and have your teeth polished up! As a medical practitioner myself it’s very important for me to have each and every detail explained to me which Dr. Buyco goes above and beyond in answering any questions or concerns. Her staff is also lovely and her dental assistant is a true gem! I will be back as soon as I can get another appointment for my holiday whitening :D

I had had a terrible experience with another dentist, and was referred to Dr. Buyco by a friend. I was apprehensive after being taken advantage of previously, but Dr. Buyco squelched my doubt and offered nothing but support and kindness. Do yourself a huge favor and see her for all of your dental needs. She is kind, honest, she listens to your concerns and walks you through all the steps she is taking. Plus the office is incredibly inviting, there is no wait and the staff is as wonderful as she is. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Buyco, and have been singing her praise since my first appointment.

E: Dr. Buyco is one of the most informational and patient dentists I've seen in a long time. I received a cleaning and whitening consultation during my first visit. She was also able to catch a deep cavity my previous dentist somehow had missed, and her thoroughness is much appreciated. Dr. Buyco explained each procedure and answered every question. On a separate visit, I completed a treatment of Zoom whitening and experienced no sensitivity at all! I thank this to Dr Buyco's recommendation of a special toothpaste that I used for a few weeks before the treatment. Now I have pearly white teeth and I am so happy! I will definitely be coming back for all my dental needs.

I arrived about 5 minutes before my appointment and was seen right on time, which was unexpected given it was a lunchtime slot. Dr. Buyco was excellent. She explained to me the tools she was using, what she was doing and why--something my dentists haven't done previously. When I asked Dr. Buyco questions, she offered thoughtful responses and I never once felt rushed. Though I came in for a cleaning, I told her I was considering some cosmetic procedures (whitening, invisalign) and she gave me all of the information without any pressure to move forward, which I appreciated. She is very kind and I felt like I was definitely in good hands. Highly recommended!

Dr. Buyco is a great dentist! She makes you feel very relaxed during your visit. Each time I visit the office I have no wait at all, I'm immediately seen. I also really like the technique of how she cleans my teeth it's a little extra than what my childhood dentist was doing my entire life. The staff is also exceptional and very considerate and caring, especially if you are a nervous or scared person of the dentist. I highly recommend.

Dr. Buyco is very caring, attentive and professional. During my dental cleaning, she talked me through what she was doing and why - something that my childhood dentist never did. She informed me of my good dental hygiene, but also how I could improve. Her technique was great, tools were of high quality and I felt very comfortable. Overall, honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had at the dentist!

I came in with a broken front tooth and I had a wedding to go to the next day! I was mortified, but Dr Buyco calmed me. She got me out of pain and fixed my tooth just in time. She made me a temporary tooth and next week I am going back for the final crown. Dr. Buyco is a life saver and I am so grateful I found her.
