Dr. Buyco is the only dentist I trust! She has been my dental provider for the past 4 years and I completely trust her. I used to be super anxious going to the dentist but now I look forward to myvisits. She always explains every procedure step by step and makes sure I am comfortable and that all my questions are answered. Her staff is also great with the insurance. And the views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral are incredible. Highly recommend! A+

My visit with Dr. Buyco was very pleasant, informative, and I felt relaxed as she is very trustworthy, listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease. I went to see her because my gums were irritated and inflamed. Shewent through my x-rays and cleaned my teeth, all the while explaining and showing me what she was doing and what she was saw in my x-rays. Dr. Buyco then went over a patient plan for me, suggesting a night guard and other ways I can protect my teeth. I highly recommend her.

I hadn't been to the dentist in over 5 years and was terrified to go back. Not to worry though, Dr. Buyco is awesome. She was very thorough, knowledgeable, and very skilled. She spent a lot of time making sure Iunderstood everything and we came up with a treatment plan together. All of my questions were answered and I was impressed at how much time she spent explaining everything. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring dentist. She clearly has a passion for dentistry.

I’ve been going to Dr. Buyco for a few years and she is hands down the best dentist I’ve ever had. I refer her to anyone who is looking for a dentist, and if I had to move away from NYC,I would worry about losing my favorite dentist! Dr. Buyco is great in all the ways you want a dentist to be – she is conscientious, meticulous, patient, responsive and clearly super skilled at what she does. She’s also a sweet person who will make you feel welcome and calm, which in my opinion makes a world of difference when you’re a person who is fearful of going to the dentist. I’ve gotten everything done with her – fillings, cleanings and most recently, Clear Correct, and in every situation, she thoroughly walked me through my options, gave me her opinions, and I felt like I was making an informed decision. Her practice is great, too – I can easily get an appointment with her and she is always be on time. And more than once I’ve had to reach her with a panicked question (one time, an old filling came out and I was freaked out) – and she’s always extremely responsive via phone or text. She is the best!

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Buyco and her staff. They really take the time to make sure you understand every procedure. I have been seeing Dr. Buyco for over 3 years and every time I see her itis a great and pleasant experience. I have referred all my coworkers to her because she is in-network with our dental insurance and everyone is happy. I will never go to another dentist again!

Over the weekend, I cracked my tooth eating a hard candy. My roommate referred me to Dr. Buyco and she saw me immediately the next day. She explained everything in detail on what needed to be done to fix my tooth.All my questions were answered! Dr. Buyco's bedside manner is impeccable!!! Her staff is also very helpful and even called my insurance company to make sure the procedures were covered. Highly recommended and the location is convenient next to all the subway stops.

Terrible experience here. Doctor was running late and I was the last patient so she seemed like she was rushing the entire time - probably to close out. She insisted that she needed full xrays of my teeth even when Isaid I didn't want them. Really annoying an waste of time. She also ended up dropping the saliva ejector into the back of my mouth which sucked up my uvula very painfully. It was the first time that has ever happened to me and when I told her afterwards that my uvula felt swollen and was hurting a lot, she actually LAUGHED and said to come back if it didn't go away next week. For 2 weeks I had an extremely painful sore throat like I've never had before. It wasn't from a cold or cough. Would not recommend this dentist to anyone.

I have been in NYC for over a decade and have finally found a dentist that I love. I went to see Dr. Buyco for a cleaning and she was very efficient to answer all of my questions. The best partwas I did not have to wait when I arrived which is convenient since I normally book appointments during my lunch break. Friendly staff, modern office and location is only a few blocks from the train. Highly recommend!

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.

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!
