Verified Patient Reviews
Receptionist and dental hygienist were great. Dr. Dechavez was helpful in helping me understand my x-rays and pictures of my teeth. He even sang some Christmas carols while examining my teeth, which I thought was fun.
Always a pleasure, excellent friendly staff and awesome dentist
I am very satisfied with my visit. Glad I listened to my wife and decided to make an appointment. The doctor was very nice and explained my course of treatment. No nonsense doctor extremely knowledgeable in his field, unlike other Dentists I’ve seen prior. This is a Dentist I would recommend to everyone.
I was very careful in choosing a dentist this time around due to bad experiences in the past. So glad I decided on Dr. Dechavez. His Dental assistant was so nice and very professional. The Dr. himself was very personable and made me feel very comfortable. I had a complicated root canal done. I didn’t feel pain not even when he gave me the Novocain injection did I feel it. Dr. Dechavez is definitely a great dentist and knows what he is doing. His bedside manner and professionalism is superb. I found my new dentist. Also a plus he is close to my house and job. Now it’s my husbands turn to see him.
Super nice and made me feel comfortable. Would defintiely recommend!!
Dr. Dechavez and his staff are extremely friendly and very professional. I don't even live in the neighborhood any longer and I plan to continue visiting his office for dental cleanings and check-ups. Finding a good dentist is difficult in New York City. I highly recommend Dr. Dechavez and his staff.
What an amazing team! They made an otherwise stressful visit a lot of fun, believe it or not. Everyone on staff has a wonderful sense of humor and keeps everything light and cheerful while being super honest and informative. They answered all of my questions and made me feel completely comfortable. Definitely visit if you can!
Extremely friendly, kind, and professional staff. Top notch. Highly recommended.
Very happy with my experience with Dr. Dechavez and his dental hygienist, Aileen. They took the time to explain every procedure, and was constantly checking to make sure that I was comfortable. Meticulous, thorough and excellent bedside manner. Will definitely come back to have other treatments done! Highly recommended!!
Dr. Gil de Chavez is the best dentist. He knows how to make the patient at ease and he is an expert on his field. I would highly recommend him.
I really enjoyed my visit here. Dr Dechavez is extremely helpful and patient with all of my questions. He really goes all the way to help you finding the best and most suitable solution that works for your situation. My best experience visiting a dentist so far in New York.

Best visit to a dentist EVER! Dr. Dechavez provides "true" painless dentistry.
I had an excellent time visiting this doctor's office today. The office was very clean and organized. Dr. Gil Dechavez has a very friendly and honest personality and someone who cares about his patient. He explained everything that needed to be done with my tooth and spent enough time to get it done. All the office staffs are very nice and helpful as well. I highly recommend this doctor's office.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Dechavez. The wait time was not long at all. When I arrived, I had to review the forms I submitted online. My appointment was at 10am and I was taken in at 10am. After x-rays were taken, I waited about 5-10 mins before seeing the doctor which is not bad at all. The receptionist was nice and helpful. Office was pretty clean, the doctor was gentle and knew what I needed. I saw him to get a filling done and he was thorough in the procedure. I've had a hard time finding a good dentist but I finally found one that I would go back to.
Staff are friendly and accomodating. The place is clean. Thanks for the excellent service, Dr. Gil!
They are the best
Its a dentist! Cant say i loved it :). But i can say the staff was really awesom! Professinal and informative. The wait time was not that long ..
It went well, we were impress by the level of service and the efficiency it was all done in one visit and well done, we are very happy with the results; in fact, we're coming back, we will definitely be back.
Dr Dechavez was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Being in the healthcare industry myself I pay attention to detail of care being provided and I can honestly say the facility was clean, the entire staff full of smiles and i recieved an excellent and thorough dental cleaning and examination. This was my first visit and I will refer friends and make Dr Dechavez my new dentist. Extremely satisfied and no wait time!
It was a great experience. The staff were accomodating and friendly. Im happy I chose Dr. Dechavez. Kudos to your team and keep it up! Thank you. Highly recommended dentist.
His bedside manner was great, but the numbing lasted for almost SIX MONTHS on my left side.
Dr. Dechavez was wonderful, efficient, and clear. I do wish he spoke a little louder though, I didn't hear some of what he said. He was gentle but thorough.
It was a good experience, the wait time can be improve to shorter, they also give u little gift bag after ur visit which is very thoughtful
Very friendly and competent
It is an absolute pleasure to go to this dentist. Every member of the staff is professional and courteous and I've never waited more than 10 minutes to see Dr. Dechavez.
Great dentist. No long wait to be seen and office manager explained cost of procedures clearly.
All of the staff members were really nice and helpful with answering any of my questions. The doctor was easy to talk to and knowledgable. Their equipment was clean and updated.
I like the environment. Very friendly and knowledgeable people. They care about their patients. Waiting time is not that bad...Average that I waited is 15 minutes.
He was great it was very efficient! And I can't wait to go back
It was a good experience. Dr. Dechaves, and his staff are really professionals and deal with their clients the right way.
Great experience! The satff is very nice and accomodating. They clearly and patiently explained everything to me. Dr. Dechavez is very profesional and charismatic making the whole experience rather painless. No pun intended.
As always, Dr Chavez was very personable, gentle and accommodating. I arrived 30 minutes early to my appointment and he saw me right away. His staff is friendly although there's one that should dress a little more conservatably. The office is clean.
Awesome experience from the front desk ladies,assistants and Dr.Dechavez was professional and made me feel comfortable.Definitely going back!
The clinic is organized and clean. The staffs are good and are very accommodating. Dr. Gil definitely knows what he does. For the pricing this clinic I can say is really affordable.
After first consultation, I'd definitely recommend Dr. Dechavez. He showed me X-rays as well as live camera footage of my teeth so I could see and clearly understand everything he was saying. He's very personable and easygoing. They also give you a personal tv while you wait for the doctor. Great experience, definitely going back.
I highly recommend Gil DeShavev and his congenial office staff. Last year I had to have a crown replaced and with his new equipment it was made on the spot and I was out the office in an hour or so. Great guy and great supporting staff.
very professional and caring. nice staff and good place.
The best dental decision of my life…2 thumbs up!!!
Efficient and speedy service, and above all, caring office staff. I would recommend Dr Gil.
He cares about his patients.
Very good incuding his staffs!
My visit with Dr. Gil Dechavez was very impressive! His staffs were all very nice and they handled the patients very professionally. I like the way how they did my teeth cleaning/whitening. I would really recommend to the people that I know who wanted a very good dentist!
It was great. Everybody was nice. Definitely will come back again.
Dr.Dechavez was friendly and helpful. His receptionist was friendly as well..
Dr. Gil was all that I could hope for and more! The office personnel was very professional and very efficient in explaining everything I needed to know from treatment to payments. The office itself was a very clean and sterile environment. What was also important to me was their kindness and sympathetic manner with my long term dentist anxiety. I would recommend Dr. Dechavez anyone. Thank you Doczoc for directing me to Dr. Gil!
Awesome! ! Very swift, attention to detail and courteous.
Very friendly staff in the front desk. They provided me with expected costs and explanation of what expenses were covered by my insurance. The dental hygienist that worked on me was a pleasure as well. They made sure I felt confortable at all times. The front lobby only has 5 seats, so it is a bit small. I'd definitely suggest making a appointment prior as opposed to have a walk-in visit
i think he is the best doctor ever, very professional .
It was wonderful! Everyone is warm and welcoming! The staff is professional and well informed of what they are doing. They ensured all bases are covered and the work was very thorough. Before coming to Dr. Dechavez I used to hate going to the dentist. Now I look forward to it. Thank you!
I like the place, it is comfy, clean and very bright. The service from all the staff was great.
wonderful office. excellent doctor & staff. highly recommended.
My experience was very positive with Dr. DeChavez. He was very polite and kind n addressed all my concerns. Also was very conservative re treatment and I sure will be going back. I have been using their practice off since 2006. All the staff is very polite and all the dentist are very kind and supportive. I will always recommend them to my friends and family. They are the best. Thanks much Dr. DeChavez U R the best.
I've been coming to Dr. Dechavez for over a year now. I began coming to him because of an emergency procedure and have stuck with him because of the outstanding service I've received from him and the rest of his staff. He is thorough, friendly, and knowledgable, and hires great people. My wife now goes to him as well, and she has had an equally excellent experience with him.
This doctor & his staff are true professionals. The office is efficient and the doctor is very skilled at what he does. There is no overbilling or overcharging at this office just excellent excellent service...... Highly recommended!
My family and I love the doctor and his talented and friendly staff.
Very clean office. Staff was really friendly and knowledgable. They treated you like family.
He is very accommodating and wants the best service for his patients. Margarita the receptionist/ office manager has excellent customer service and very willing to help and make the client feel comfortable. The rest of the dental assistants are also professional and with pleasing personality and demeanor.
He is really accomodating and friendly. We are willing to visit his clinic for our regular dental.
