I waited for more than an hour before being seen, and when I was seen, the woman who was treating mehad awful bedside manner. She did not care in the slightest about my comfort. Dr. Garry Levingart's manner was excellent, but he was so late that I had to leave without proper consultation. I spent nearly 2 hours just to get a cleaning and a 5 min conversation.

I was extremely unhappy with the management of my dental care. He told me I needed a crown which was coveredby my insurance but neither he nor anyone in his office explained that he would do a crown lengthening procedure that was not covered. He completed the first part of the procedure and then his clerk told me that I would have to pay an extra money for a procedure I didn’t know I was having.

Scheduled teeth cleaning and it did not feel thorough. They basically did the bare minimum and then tried to upsell me and charge me more for deeper cleaning. Would not recommend.

I see Dr. Diana Levingart regularly and it's always a pleasure to be seen by her but I have one complaint. I was scheduled for a procedure and the receptionist/office manager said she would let me know the cost under my insurance. I didn't hear back so I called the office again and she said she would call me back with the cost. A month has now passed and I still haven't received a call back. I don't want this to reflect badly on the dentist because she is exemplary but the office administration seems a bit disorganized.

The receptionist was extremely rude. They told me I needed 4 fillings replaced. I let them replace "the worst one." My face was numb after the procedure for much longer than usual. My next dentist told me that nothing was wrong with my fillings at all. There are better, more honest dentists out there. Keep looking.

Very professional who did not make me feel guilty for having not had my teeth cleaned for the past few years. Polite and judgement free, even made time for me when I accidentally requested a consultation as opposed to cleaning through the app. Highly Recommended.

Dr. Levingart was very thorough in explaining procedures before executing, as well as why. He made sure to me through medical options & timeline/sequence before having me make a decision (which of course he gave me time to do). Also, very patient with making sure my mount was properly numb before doing any work.

The two dentists at this practice are excellent. Father and daughter. Lovely people. The receptionist however...wow. Make sure you call to confirm you appointment and th nature of your visit after booking on zocdoc as she does not copy over the scheduling details. After three visits using zocdoc I can confirm this was not a fluke.

It felt rushed and extremely awkward. Nothing was explained to me. I wasn't even aware I was done because the dentist walked out and didn't offer me any time to ask questions. I will not return to this place.

It was okay. Nothing to rave about. Dr. was standard and did not meet my expectations. Prior to coming in, I read some of the other reviews and I was expecting greatness. Definitely fell short of that. Hygienist was informative and took her time to clean my teeth. Front desk was mediocre. Nice, but I should have been told about the hour wait. The waiting area is way too small. Not enough seats to accommodate incoming patients.

I visited twice -once the computers were down so I had to come again for x rays. I get the x rays and i'm told I need to have teeth pulled and to get a bridge while I was in severe pain, meanwhile they could have performed a pulpotomy to relieve the pain and later discuss other options with me. I felt they did not care about the level of pain I was in and were more interested in upselling me other dental procedures.

Very nice doctor and staff but recommended a really expensive procedure that there is no way i needed seeing how my last dental checkup had been less than a year earlier (No way teeth decay that fast). I felt like they are in it for the money, seeing how much they can squeeze from you.

The dentist was great but the hygienist was extremely rough (and her bedside manners were awful). Would go back to see the dentist but will get my teeth cleaned with someone else in the same office or at another dentist.

I liked his staff, and the place was nice, but then this dentist cleaned my teeth ruffly to the point that my head pulled with his pick, which I didn't like at all. He then proceeded to try to up-sell me on veneers for a full half hour when I explained I just wanted my cavities filled by my insurance and couldn't afford them.

Front desk and hygienists were very nice, although the Brooklyn office set up was a bit awkward. (Dentist chair/room was open ceiling format, no door & so you could hear everything from the waiting room). I had a couple of fillings replaced- pretty standard, but procedure could've gone smoother/gentler by Dr. Levingart. Satisfactory overall... I've had better experiences with other dentists.

I only had cleaning of my teeth in this office, I had no wait time. Staff was extremely polite, knowledgeable and professional. My dental hygienists seriously took in consideration my latex allergy and put on non-latex gloves right away. Office is super clean and modern with soft relaxing music and TV with subtitles. They went far and beyond in service. My cleaning was not painful. I have a next appointment in 2 weeks and would recommend them highly. I wish every medical office was like that!
