Verified Patient Reviews
The staff was very professional and I felt very comfortable in the dentist chair which is never the norm for me. I am very happy I choose Willoughby dental.
His assistant is very sweet and caring. It was my first time there and I enjoyed myself. He took his time and informed me of all my cavities HA HA. I have an appointment to go back for my fillings. He is a very great dentist!
My visit with Ezra Trachtenberg, DMD was a pleasant ,affordable and painless experience.
I felt at ease soon after my arrival. I have long feared the Dentist from childhood! However, I do not regret taking my good friend, Khadijah's recommendation to let Dr Trachtenberg treat me! It was a good decision! If you need someone who will be gentle & considerate of your fears, being tactful & explaining procedures BEFORE he begins -- in a clear & concise manner, I would recommend Dr. Tractenberg. I never thought I would See the Day(!) I would recommend a Dentist to anyone(!) but, I recommend Dr. Tractenberg! He & his staff are a great team that you will discover once you enter for treatment at his office!
He was great! I haven't had the best luck with dentists but I quickly felt at ease. I haven't been to the dentist in a while but he didn't make me feel bad about it which I appreciate. He talked me through everything he was doing so it wasn't scary at all. He has a new regular patient!
did not seem to whant take me on
The best denist in brooklyn..
It was a very pleasant visit. Will recommend him anytime.
The visit was great! Great cleaning job. Professional, would recommend!
Dr has excellent bedside manners and explains everything. I'm so happy I found a great dentist. All his staff are very pleasant and professional.
I saw Dr. Trachtenberg due to a dental emergency (chipped tooth). He saw me right away and fixed my tooth in under an hour. He did an excellent job. I was thoroughly impressed with his expertise and care. The other staff (receptionists, hygienists) were also extremely kind and thorough.
I like him and everybody there. I plan on coming back my tooth is pull.
DR. Trachtenberg has been my son and I dentist for many years, we've always received excellent and pain free service.
From scheduling, helping me with my insurance info. Etc and the doctor himself was great. He explained in detail everything I needed to know and was very easy to talk to and ask questions to. Every person who works there is awesome! Glad I found them.

Great professional experience, knowledgeable and definitely will recommend.
Really great . Very inormative, patient, and Kind. Definitely worth the money and time.
It was great. Dr. Trachtenberg is a great dentist. He is professional & very smart. He communicates in a calm & courteous manner. He was very helpful & the visit was painless. I was very impressed with the staff as well. I highly recommend him.
Great! Got down to business. No nonsense.
Dr. Trachenberg is always professional. I am deathly afraid about any dentist visit I have but I must say after seeing Dr. T I am not as afraid as when I walked in. He explains everything he is going to do and gives you an idea of what to expect. He takes his time and moves with such efficiency its hard not to notice he is skilled in dentistry. I am glad to call him my new found dentist. He is highly recommended in my book.
Dr. Trachtenberg is no-nonsense and gives the best feedback he can. He asked questions that made me think and find root causes of problems, and he listened and thought about what I said without judgement. While other dentists might scoff at my home remedy for cavities, drinking raw milk, Dr. Trachtenberg was supportive and gave me a filling that supports new dentin growth, which results from drinking clean raw milk. I got a cavity and terrible head pain after months of not having enough phosphatase in my system, but the combination of drinking raw milk, which contains phosphatase, a calcium-absorbing aid, and getting the cavity filled made the pain stop. I did not need pain killers after getting the filling.
Very professional. He is gentle and a pleasure to talk to. I really don't like dentist, but trust me, he is #1.
Dr. Trachenberg is the most amazing dentist I have ever been too.
Dr. Trachtenberg is always a delight, honest, professional, and also very kind.
Very professional and friendly.
It went very smooth
Great visit and professional staff.
Very knowledgeable and experienced. Took the time to explain things. Would go back and also recommend to others.
He's cares about his patients. He explained to me what he thought was the problem and kept giving me pain medication until I was numb and it took over 1.5 hours. Ill definitely use him again!!!!
Very professional approach to the patient. pleasant experience for me as a patient
The best dentist in brooklyn
Great doctor. Gentle. He explains everything clearly
Dr. Trachtenberg was very kinda and thorough. His staff was equally as kind and helpful. Like most people I get nervous going to the dentist (especially with numbing shots) but I felt in good hands with Dr. Trachtenberg and his assistant.
Saw Dr. Tractenberg for tooth extraction. Procdure was painless without side effects.
The ultimate dentist! Professional, experienced, gentle, and explains the details of what he is about to do. Takes many insurance plans and always willing to work with you on payments. He is the last dentist you will need!
Love the staff here! Always so kind and friendly and Dr. Trachtenberg is such a professional! Always calm and thorough!
Dr. Trachtenberg and the staff are friendly and caring. He checked on me many times during the treatment to make sure I was comfortable. I was very happy with the service provided and thankful for my goody bag!!
Great dentist. He is polite and gentle he talks you through every step and does not make a move until you ok it. So if you are a person who is weary about new dentist you have a chance to get up and leave before he starts working. His office is clean and entire staff are polite and helpful. I recommended my entire family to switch to him.
my visits were unfearful thanks to this dentist. I have nothing but good things to say. and my dentures are perfect. I actually looked forward to my visits because of his excellent manner and concern for my comfort.
Always love my visits! Painful or not, he always makes it pleasant!
If your in need of a professional, compotent, compassionate dentist Dr. Trachtenberg is your man. Knows what his doing and takes great care in keeping everything sterile.
Very professional , pain free experience
He got to the problem quickly and resolved it.
I have my teeth whitening by Dr ezra and I was very please with the service he also give me a nice cleaning for a very affordable fee ????
Dr. Trachtenberg was AWESOME!!!! My daughter needed to have wisdom teeth pulled and he removed them according to my daughter painlessly and easily!!! Great Dentist!!
It was an awesome experience. He gave me a lot of tips to keep my oral hygiene up.
I appreciate the fact that I have 2 little girls that are not afraid of going to see the dentist. And I think that is a big deal when I wont even go to the dentist.
Dr. Ezra seemed professional and friendly. I can't say the same thing of his receptionists.. I might visit again because of proximity to my office, although I'm not a fan of Doctors that are seeing several patients simultaneously.
Great customer service and great results from the Sapphire teeth whitening treatment.
For my first time I felt very comfortable and pleased with my visit with Dr. Ezra Trachtenberg
Great service, and very friendly. Really couldn't have asked for anything more.
Small office - Dr.Trachtenberg is thorough and has a pretty good manner
Even though getting some cavity fillings is pretty simple, I tend to feel uncomfortable with any dental work and Dr. Trachtenberg made me feel comfortable and at ease. He kept me informed during the whole process and also didn't make me feel bad for being there in the first place. I've had dentist in the past that get pretty judgmental when their patients have cavities, but Dr. Ezra was great and didn't make me feel embarrassed.
Very professional and did a great job!
He's an amazing Dentist, today was no different than any other. I've been going to him for over ten years and I now take my children to him as well.
Great visit and real quick
I do not like going to the dentist but Dr. Trachtenberg was very gentle and there was minimal discomfort after my treatment. My experience in his chair was so good that I will no longer be skipping my dental appointments.
I went in as an emergency because I was experiencing pain and could not wait to see my dentist the following day. Everyone was very friendly. Ezra Trachtenberg was very informative. He told me the root of my problem, explained the procedure that was to occur, made sure I was comfortable and the pain that I would experience would be little to none, and directed me on how to take care after everything was done. The tooth extraction was over before I knew it.
Staff and doctor were both very pleasant. His service was quick, thorough, and pain free. Very conveniently located off the Jay St A, C, F, R subway lines.
Bad dentist can't even do fillings cost me 2 teeth. Loser
By far the best dentist I've ever been to. Great personality, I was made to feel very comfortable. Not having insurance, I found pricing to be very fair. Doctor was very good at explaining what was going on. Overall the best dental experience I've had in 35 years, and a completely painless molar extraction. Super good people!
Impressive,he did a lot of dental work for me. I will see him regularly. This dentist is the real deal.
It has been awhile I since I felt comfortable in a dentists chair I am ready to go back asap thank you Dr Trachtenberg.
I have bern going to Dr. Ezra for quite some time now. I have always found him to be honest, fair and provide superior service.
Dr. Trachtenberg was very pleasant and very professional. The wait time was very short and I was seen right away after filling out paperwork. He was very inquisitive and answered every question. So wonderful!
i like the way how he explain every details to you,make me feel very comfortable in his chair.would highly recommend my friends and family.
Dr Trachtenberg has excellent skills and a wonderful relationship with his patients.
Great Dentist! Provided an excellent cleaning and his teeth whitening product was amazing. Plan on going back in two weeks for a second round.
He is the best dentist I have ever been to. AWESOME!!!
I needed two teeth extracted and Dr. Trachtenberg saw me before my appointment, was very professional, and gave me a good aftercare program and medication. I would definitely recommend him.
The wait time was very short & Dr. tractenberg was very nice and professional.
Dr. Trachtenberg & his staff were really great about seeing me in a hurry to take care of some painful wisdom teeth. Everyone was really nice there & I definitely plan on coming back & would highly recommend his services to people. Cheers!
He is great! very professional!
I was afraid during my first visit because I hate going to the dentist. I was surprised that he was so welcoming. He was also very gentle with his work. He makes sure that you are really numb before starting his work and for some reason I never feel pain or get swollen when I get home. I love him and would recommend him to everyone.
Very informative and provides options for treatment.
Dr. Trachtenberg was very knowledgeable and professional. I felt confident in his care.
This is the BEST dentist I have ever been too and I am someone who is TERRIFIED of the dentist (or used to be). He is calm, accommodating, helpful, understanding and patient. I have been here many times and he is great every time. Today though I had quite a long wait to see him. Usually I have been almost immediately called in but today I waited like an hour or more. The waiting room is small and all but one chair was taken up. it was uncomfortable waiting. Usually I am late and today I was early. I guess now I know not to go early.
He s an excellent dentist! !!!!!!!!
It was great, the receptionist was very exciting
Dr. Trachtenberg is a caring, competent dentist . I have an extreme dental phobia , but as soon as I am in the chair in his office, I feel better. I have had many procedures done over the years , and I recommend Dr. Trachtenberg .
He really is a great dentist. He takes his time with you and make you feel comfortable it's all over before you know it
He is very good at what he does I was very comfortable an no pain.
Excellent physician and very gentle while performing procedures.
The doctor is very professional and he let you know every step of your treatment that he is giving. I would recommend him as one of the best dentist that I have visited office in the past five years. He is a good doctor in my opinion at this point of my treatment. This is not meant to be a negative review,( my last statement).
The exam sectionals have a lot of unfinished construction and are not clean. I had to go to a different dentist to fix a poor job on a filling. Everything is rushed and overbooked so you do not get proper attention.
I had passed Dr. Trachtenberg's office in Downtown Brooklyn for years without realizing it! I was very happy to know that I could find a professional, clean, and efficient practice in my area. Dr. Ezra was a little short, but it kept the process moving along, which I appreciated. I had quite a bit of work done over a few weeks, and each time I came back I felt better about the visit. The office even gives you a great tooth care kit- the toothbrush says, "I love Dr. Trachtenberg!" Very funny and heartwarming- cause it's true!
I am afraid of going to the dentist however Dr.Ezra was excellent and made sure my procedure was painless as possible. I felt comfortable during and after my procedure.
Great dentist! Clean office. Wonderful experience overall :-)
I have been super afraid of the dentist but he has made me feel so much better. He made everything so easy.
Accommodating Scheduling - Works well with my hectic work hours with late appointment time slots. The staff are friendly and Ezra is very knowledgeable. Can't wait for my next appointment!
Had the worst cleaning I have ever had. I waited 45 minutes and then the dentist gave me a 10 minute cleaning. This dentist takes Medicaid and makes the office feel like a Medicaid clinic. I will not return. I suggest if you have private insurance to go elsewhere.
Dr Ezra is a very good Dentist. My family and i have known him for about 20 years or so, i will continue to go to him as long as he is practicing. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Ezra was amazing! He explained every part of the process to me thoroughly. He was very meticulous and took very good care of me. He has a great sense of humor and that helps. Lastly, he is very skilled and goes the extra step to make sure you are comfortable, which isn't easy in to do in a dentist office.
Glad to find a dentist in my neighborhood. Dr. Trachtenberg seems to be just the man I was looking for. I felt as if I was in good hands. The first visit went very well. Thanks.
Best dentist I've ever had!!!
My visit was very good. He was very professional and he gave me details of what he was going to do. I will go back and get other things done that are need for my mouth care.
I have had several appointments with Dr. Trachtenberg. He is very convenient. His bedside manner is good. He doesn't do my least favorite dentist move of berating you about your flossing habits once your mouth is too full of dental tools to respond. One downside is that he is the only dentist in his practice and he often has multiple appointments going at once, so he goes back and forth between patients. I think it does add some time to the length of the appointment, but not too much.
It was actually better than my former dental office. He was very attentive and made me feel very much at ease. The office staff is also better than most. Very nice and easy to talk to.
Friendly environment . Funny dentist he is very honest. His assistant and receptionist are the best
He's the best
Very pleasant staff, including Trachtenberg, but equipment was not up to date. Old practices in a modern world . . .
He certainly seemed very competent.
Kind, caring, professional. relaxes the patient. warm, friendly manner.
I have a thing about dentists.....I don't particularly care for them. But Dr. Trachtenberg made me feel comfortable and he was very upfront with me. He was also understanding of my fears. His staff is very friendly and helpful.
DR trachtenberg was amazing. Very professional and easy to talk to. His staff were very helpful and overall a great experience.
Dr.Ezra Trachtenberg, DMD was very thorough and spoke about the process before hand.
Dr. "T" is personable, professional and readily available. All traits are a plus in an area are large as NYC and its surrounding borough's.
He's got the best bedside manner, knows his work; he's been practicing for many years. I feel I'm in good hands and I trust him- that's saying a lot from someone who's got a huge phobia and trauma from dentists!!
He was excellent. He was patient, took his time, encouraged me to ask questions, and gave me suggestions that were in my beat interest, not in the best interest of his pocket. He really cares and didn't get annoyed when I asked for clarification. I waited about 15 minutes to be seen, but I also arrived early to my appointment. Excellent dentist, go see him!
Visit was great. Dr T is my favorite Dentist ever. He is always so pleasant & accommodating. I would certainly recommend him .
Everyone was professional and courteous. Never left a dentist office feeling so relieved it was a good experience.
I have a great fear of the dentist, but Dr. Trachtenberg and his staff made me feel comfortable and eased my jitters
I've seen Dr Trachtenberg for years, he is an awesome attentive dentist. He's done practically all my dental work. I've had my wisdom teeth removed with NO PAIN. I highly recommend him.
His office space is a reflection of his services. Dingy, rushed, and unorganized.
Very professional. Made me feel very comfortable with the process of extracting wisdom tooth. Process was very smooth, little discomfort. Left his office comfortable and fully aware of how to care for the wound post op.
The receptionists were both rude I was in pain and I will be writing this place up
Very pro active and very considerate
Professional and personable. Took time to explain results and procedures. Asked more than once if there were any other concerns. First visit, so will know more after I get those fillings!
I was seen promptly. Dr. Trachtenberg did an excellent job explaining each aspect of the procedures as he proceeded, which made me feel very comfortable. His exam was thorough and his observations insightful. I would recommend him highly.
Office was definitely a little run-down, but otherwise it was a good visit. Made a last minute appt for an emergency, was seen right away, the staff and doctor were very helpful and friendly. Sent me to a specialist right away to take care of the problem.
My visit was excellent. Dr. Trachtenberg took his time and I felt very confident with all of the work he performed.
It was a very fast in and out. He didn't take as much time with my teeth as I am used to. However, his bedside manner was awesome. I arrived a couple of minutes late, but then it was another 15 minutes or so before he saw me.
Amazing cleaning.....I literally never had a perfect cleaning visit like this before..
Very caring, efficient and informative. Not at all scary!
this doctor is very nice. he and his staff are so warm and welcoming. i was extremely nervous at first, but they took great care of me. i will continue to go this dentist in the future. i highly recommend him.
i havent been to the dentist in YEARS! and was really nervous and embarrassed but he was super nice and made me feel very comfortable and unlike most dentist offices he didn't send in a hygienist to examine and clean my teeth, he did it himself! highly recommended
EXCELLENT! love his work!
He was not a very good dentist. He messed up the X-rays, messed up the insurance and told me that I "maybe" had a cavity in a tooth.
Very nice guy, knowledgable and professional. Office is a tad run down but not too bad. Staff friendly as well.
Dr. Trachtenberg is great! I found him a few years ago when my husband needed some emergency dental work done. He saw us right away and has since become our dentist. He is thorough, professional and has great bedside manner. Don't be overly concerned about location. He's right upstairs. He and the staff are great!
Office staff is very professional. I did have about a half hour wait each time, but he was thorough and answered all of my questions. He has decades of experience which I found comforting. will go see again.
Doctor Ezra is a very professional and detailed person . He will pinpoint exactly what needs to be done to better your teeth. He is cool. He gave me a pack of dental floss and made me feel very comfortable during my visit. He knows what he's doing. He has a lot of patients.
Explained the procedure as he went along. Made sure the tooth extraction would be pain free. Both Friendly and Professional.
I do not like the dentist because of the fear of needles and pain, but Doc. Ezra made me want to come back to his office. First time ever enjoying a trip to the dentist. Clean enviornment, polite staff and through exam.
The doctor was very pleasant and patient. He and his assistant made me feel very comfortable. The soft music was a great touch as well! It helped me relax through my procedure.
follow up appointment with Dr. Trachtenberg, no wait, super friendly and very efficient- got me in and out in under 30 minutes for two fillings! would highly recommend to anyone who needs a dentist in the downtown BK area
Long wait, but very friendly and warm staff.
Dr. Trachtenberg is a wonderful dentist, very thorough and kind to both my daughters.
It went very well.
Dr. Trachtenberg is very courteous, appropriately friendly and seems quite skilled. I had a broken filling and he saved the tooth and avoided the need for root canal where I believe another dentist would have just gone for the root canal. The staff were courteous and pleasant. The office is clean and appropriate. I would not recommend the neighborhood much after dark, I recommend appointments earlier in the day for this excellent dentist.
He asked exactly what us bothering me, and proceeded based on that. Very pleasant and polite, and most of all knowledgeable.
