The doctor was willing to work with my needs and replace my lost filling right away. He made me feel at ease and explained everything clearly. He didn't push for me to get X-rays or additional work done on this visit,which was my preference. Overall excellent experience. Highly recommended!

Dr. Chikunov did my consultation and asked about my dental history and what I wanted to work on. He examined my and my x-rays and gave me different options for treatment. He was attentive, and explained everything he saw and howto go about addressing different things. I am extremely satisfied with this practice and will definitely be back.

Absolutely excellent! Dr. Chikunov listened to my complex history and concerns and set up a plan that worked for me. He was willing to do some of the necessary treatment right away, and wait for other stuff until my dental insurancekicks in again. He was really great, and the office staff were extraordinarily helpful. Highly, highly recommend!

Just a basic cleaning; can't comment on more complex treatment. Everyone is extremely polite, and clear. Cleaning by a hygienist was very thorough and relatively painless. The office is clearly well designed to be very clean, and the musicis pleasant. They did try to push some orthodontia, but within reason.

Dr. Chikunov is great - very friendly and easy to talk to. I love that he works on Saturdays as it makes things much easier for those of us with crazy week day schedules. For whatever reason, the past two timesI have visited I have waited at least 30 minutes. Might just be a coincidence! Either way, I still continue to visit him.

Seriously the nicest dentist I've ever been to. Explains everything clearly, is very thorough, and is super down-to-earth. I went in after shying from the dentist for nearly 3 years, so I was pretty nervous about the whole ordeal, but walkedout of there with a smile. The staff at this office is also amazing! Nice, warm, welcoming, and very patient with me while I was figuring out some insurance things. I recommend this office to all of my colleagues.

Dr. Chikunov and his staff were very friendly, knowledgable and attentive. He timidly recommended I get cleanings more frequently, which would obviously not be covered by insurance. I am open to doing that, but the way he and his office staffapologetically stated it, was off putting. I think if you're going to make a professional recommendation, say it with confidence and leave the final decision up to me.

I had a very positive experience. The office is bright and modern, the staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Chikunov was kind and professional. I felt that he listened carefully and gave considered answers to my questions. I have no issuesgoing to the dentist but if you do have any concerns or fears, I believe this doctor would look after you. I came for a check up and a clean and that is what I got.

Igor was probably the most thorough dentist I've ever seen. He took the time to show me everything he saw and explained all of my options (e.g., sealant vs. porcelain inlay, etc.) -- at no point did I feel pressured togo any one route, and he assured me that I would be informed of my level of coverage before any procedure is done. Typically my cleanings have been completed by Dental Hygienists -- which is generally fine -- but Igor did the majority of the cleaning himself, with the assistance of a Hygeneist. I found this approach to be tremendous (teeth have never felt cleaner!). I will be back to Dr. Igor and will certainly be recommending him to other friends in NYC. Also -- office is clean and very well decorated (simple/modern).

Dr. Chikunov was great As well as all the staff. I've mentioned I have sensitivity to cold while he was doing my crown, and guess what? He and his assistant (who was great and with excellent besides manners) managed to putwarm water throughout the hoses of the dental chair! I have never had this kind of consideration from any other dentist, just for me to feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair while he worked. At the end, my crown was just perfect and the best thing, pain free!! Totally recommend Doctor Chikunov office.

Had a great appointment. Dr. Igor has a very congenial and calming demeanor. He takes the time to explain everything to you in simple terms and then presents all options including his recommendations. His recommendations make the most senseand aren't driven by unnecessary extra steps and costs but to perform what is required and monitor other options. I would highly recommend him.
