Absolutely wonderful - came here for a cleaning and Dr. Buyco was super professional, kind, caring and incredibly thorough. After someone who hasn't gone to the dentist in 10+ years, she didn't judge me at all which made me feel atease and she was very informative on how to continue caring for my teeth. Her assistant Kaley is also a sweetheart, such a kind and caring person. Dream team. Highly recommended!

Dr. Buyco and her assistant Kaley are incredibly kind, professional, and good with people. . . Dr Buyco walked me through the various steps and tools used for teeth cleaning and was incredibly thorough. Kaley recognized that some of the x-raybites would hurt and would hurry back over to minimize the suffering :). You cannot ask for more! Thank you for a positive dentist experience!

I hate going to the dentist but Dr. Ericka Buyco has changed that for me. Before going to Dr. Buyco I had not been to the dentist for over 2 years, and after I started seeing her over a year agoI have been to each 6 month cleaning. She is gentle with the cleaning and honest about the work that needs to be done. I definitely recommend her!

I'm so happy I came into Dr. Buyco's office! I've been looking for the right dentist and I found her; she's professional yet easy to talk to. I felt comfortable and relaxed as apposed to my usual nervousness when sitting ina dentists chair. You can watch tv while she cleans your pearly whites and after it's all said and done you get a cute goody back to keep your teeth white and healthy (no matter how old you are - getting a goody bag is always fun!). I'm also really excited to try the whitening tray since years of coffee and tea have taken their toll.

As a young professional in NYC, I was looking for a great dentist that could fit around my busy schedule. I have been a patient of Dr. Buyco's for a few years now and followed her to her new practice becauseonce you find a good dentist it's tough to let them go! Dr. Buyco is a dentist for life. She is thorough, gentle, informative and is willing to work with your schedule if you need to space out several procedures.

This was my second appointment with Dr. Buyco. I had to get 3 fillings, did them in one session. Though I had to wait about 20 minutes for the anesthesia to kick in, the actual filling took only about an hour- we had scheduled for 1.5 hours so that made sense. Ericka was very aware of my comfort and made sure the procedure was painless and easy. They made sure to explain my insurance coverage before we started (and had also done so during my last appointment), so I knew what to expect. The office is clean and well decorated, which makes everything less stressful.

Very nice, if a bit rough with the scraper during my visit. But the real reason I won't go back is that her office staff was unhelpful and a little unpleasant to me when I returned to inquire about a follow-up appointment.

When I first saw Dr. Buyco I was really unhappy with my smile and my confidence was low. Going to the dentist was something I usually don't look forward to but Dr. Buycos chairside manner put me at ease. I hada million questions and Dr. Buyco was very patient and caring towards my concerns. I had braces when I was younger and lost my retainer which left me with gaps that I didn't like. She worked with me step by step and for the first time in my life I have a smile I can be proud of! I can't say thank you to you and your staff enough!

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 proand 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.

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 hasan 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

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 stopthe 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!

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, knowledgableand 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.
