Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Brandes is always professional but personal. I would recommend Dr. Brandes to everyone.
Dr Brandes is great! Definitely recommend. From someone who has a fear of dentists she takes the time to answer your questions and I never have any pain. Also every time I go there is little to no wait time, which is great when I have a busy schedule.
Dr. Brandes listened to my questions and was very helpful. I never felt rushed!
I do a very good job at maintaining my dental hygiene, and even still she was SCRAPING at my gums and drew blood from poking at them. I went back a few times because the office is close to where I work, but I can't handle how painful it is anymore.
She does an amazing job. She is very thorough and careful.
Dr. Brandes is honest, caring and attentive. The work she has done with my smile is beautiful and I will be forever grateful.
Same outstanding care, consistent every time. Thank you Dr. Brandes!
Dr. Brandes is a pure professional in addition to being a caring, involved in your health, up to date dentist. She is exceptionally thorough in her approach and her manner puts you right at ease. *********many,many stars for Dr. Brandes.
A delightful experience as always. I can say from my first few visits here that my experience has been worlds above the other dental offices I have visited. I am always seen on time and the treatment is painless. Dr. Brandes is wonderful, and I am beyond thrilled to have her as my dentist. If you're looking for a new dentist, don't look any further! She's the best.
I've been going to Dr. Brandes for almost 20 years and I've only had one cavity. (I eat too much sugar, what can I say?) I can't imagine going to anyone else. She's the best and really knows what she's doing. In and out in about 35 minutes and she does all the work herself.
I had an excellent experience with Dr. BRANDES, as always.
I'm absolutely grateful to have found Dr. Brandes. She was very thorough and she really took her time to properly diagnose and treat a toothache that has troubled me for years. A very pleasant experience. Will return for sure
Dr. Brandes is always great.
As always, a visit with Dr Brandes is pretty painless and pleasurable as she is a very kind person. I have been her patient for many years and have had only positive experience with her.
Dr Brandes is simply the best dentist !!!
Always a pleasure! Dr. Brandes is always informative and attentive of my concerns. She, as well as her staff, pushes me, in addition to, advises me of steps to have the best dental health possible.
I've been a patient for many years and Dr. Brandes and staff have been consistently professional, efficient and courteous. They make seeing the dentist an actual pleasant experience!
Hands down one of the most enjoyable visits I've had at a dental office. Dr. Brandes was wonderful. Unlike the other offices I have been to, she did all the dental work herself, from the cleanings to the major things, so I definitely felt at ease for each visit. Absolutely recommend!
She's always a pleasure
As always, I had a great experience! 5 stars overall!
She's great. Very friendly, puts you at ease, and extremely capable
Dr. Brandes is pretty fabulous. This was my second visit with her. Here's why: 1) She did my cleaning herself (co-worker says she always does). I think it's an excellent way for a dentist to really know your teeth and see probs & issues themselves. 2) She's incredibly thorough and cares deeply about my teeth. She prescribed me a toothpaste, noticed that I grind my teeth (have had dentists miss that in the past). Played a video for me re: how to brush and gave me instructions on proper method of flossing. She's pretty passionate about what she does. I feel like I'm in very good hands. 3) She double checked that my insurance would cover the two additional cavities I need to have done. Suggested that if it didn't, we could wait until the next calendar year since just a month or two away. I appreciate that. 4) When I'd called in with a question about whitening pkg I'd gotten she took my call herself.
Dr Brandes was extremely professional, warm and competent. I am glad I will now be a patient of hers
A very warm welcome from the front coupled with excellent care in the chair made for an amazing experience at this office. From start to finish, I felt as if I was in excellent care. Dr. Brandes was very thorough and even called me directly to follow up on how I was doing after my appointment. Extremely happy with the care I received.
She and her staff were wonderful to deal with. They went above and beyond and made me feel well taken care off. I recommend them highly.
After countless recommendations from colleagues, I finally visited Dr. Brandes. I have had very good dentists before, but Dr. Brandes is by far the most knowledgeable. She takes her time explaining everything. She has an excellent bedside manner and a plesant disposition. Simply outstanding.
Great staff, great manner, and she complimented my teeth! Would recommend to anyone!!!
I have been lucky only having one filling replaced. I go for cleaning 2 times a year. I love her & all of her staff. Professional & kind.
I had a great experience with Dr. BRANDES, as always.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Brandes. She was professional, friendly, patient, thorough and precise. She has an excellent eye for detail and I am thrilled with the bonding she did on my teeth. Andrew, her receptionist/scheduler, is also a pleasure to deal with. Can't thank them enough!
Always a pleasant experience w Dr Brandes and her staff. Very thorough and caring.
Dr. Brandes provided me with the best dental experience I have had. Her level of professionalism is absolutely unparalleled. She explained each procedure to me prior to any treatment, making sure that I was at ease throughout the whole visit. Her office staff is always very friendly and helpful. Looks like I finally found a great dentist.
Amazing experience. Have been using zocdoc to find dentists and doctors, but must say that this was my best experience to date. Was seen quickly, Irene took the time to explain everything clearly, and even got a gift bag of Dental supplies on the way out. Highly recommend!
The BEST OF THE BEST!!!!
Dr. Brandes has been my dentist for over 15 years, and I love her! I have had some very serious dental problems, including multiple crowns, implants, and oral surgeries. Dr. Brandes was always available to me during times of emergency, even giving me her cell number, and fitting me in when I had teeth falling out, pain, etc. The fact that she is also a dental professor at NYU keeps her updated with all the latest methods and technology. She is lovely, professional, on time, is hooked up with the best dental specialists in town for referrals, and her staff are always pleasant. I have highly recommended Dr. Brandes to friends and family, and will continue to do so.
We turned up at her rooms as australian tourists with our daughter who had broken her braces. She immediately agreed to have a look to see if she could help, couldn't so then rang a colleague so they would see us straight away. We are so grateful.
I've gone to about 6 or 7 different dentists in NYC and Dr. Brandes has been my favorite. Her office is sunny and pleasant, as is her disposition. Her treatments are painless and durable. I've had work from other dentists crack, fall, out or fail, but never with Dr. Brandes. I've been seeing her for about three years and she is highly recommended.
Dr Brandes & her staff always make me as comfortable as possible. Very time efficient as well!
Very professional, honest, friendly. Highly recommend her.
So calm and kind. I'm terrified of the dentist but she and her staff were amazing
I've been going to Dr. Brandes for at least 5 years and i love her service and the whole staff.
Always a quick and easy experience she got me in last minute . And she is fast and thorough .
Excellent! From the greeting @ the front desk to the docor's thoroughness in explainations & services are top notch!! Thank you
I have tried many dentists, as going to the dentist is one of my greatest fears. I have been with Dr. Brandes for over four years and couldn't be more pleased!
I had to make an emergency appointment with Dr. Brandes, and I was very satisfied with the visit and the treatment. Thanks Dr. Brandes!
I chose to visit Dr. Brandes based on the reviews that I read on ZocDoc. I have to say my experience was reflective of the consecutively positive reviews that other patients left. Dr. Brandes explained everything that she was doing thoroughly and also explained everything in simple terms in order to understand what she had to do and why. She also spent time with me after my cleaning to go over next steps and preventative treatment at home such as the right way to brush and floss. Dr. Brandes had a great bedside manner and made going to the dentist less petrifying than it can usually be for me. She was not judgemental, truly cared, and had a great, Professional staff. I highly recommend her and her staff.
She is always very professional. She answers every question I may have and the wait time is fantastic. I normally go during my lunch break and I am back in the office within the hour even when shes filling cavities.
Friendly, professional, on time.
She is the best dentist I have ever been to and she is always completely pleasant and professional. She is a fantastic dentist and I highly recommend her to everyone I know.
Dr. Brandes is by far the best dentist I've ever had. She doesn't overbook so I've never had to wait more than 2 minutes, and she's incredibly nice and thoughtful. The office is also run very smoothly and whenever I need a prescription for my premedication, they handle it immediately. With my busy schedule I often forget to schedule appointments and Carol from the office has saved me the headache by calling me directly to follow up. Last but certainly not least, Dr. Brandes is very skilled in dentistry and fixed my front tooth that had recurring problems for over ten years and I have not had any problems with it since. I never thought I would say I look forward to going to the dentist but I really like Dr. Brandes and highly recommend her.
She is a great dentist! Would recommend her to all my friends and family!
It was fantastic! She always takes the time to explain anything dentistry related. She is aware of new services and can give you great advice as to if it is good for you. She is caring and very thorough.
She was very professional and had a very pleasant bedside manner.
It was delightful.
I have not been to a dentist in almost 20 years. I am very scared of them - always have been. Recently I decided to man up and get seen. Dr Brandes did not lecture me as I was expecting, she was courteous and non judgmental. Her staff were professional and Dr Brandes was very thorough and minimised any pain. If you have not been to the Dentist for a long time (or even if you do) I really recommend Dr Brandes.
Brilliant. Dr Brandes takes her time to explain options and is very thorough. She has a lovely gentle manner and was able to very much put me at ease (that's a first for me in a dentist chair). Her office is very clean, staff incredibly friendly and professional, and rates very reasonable (which surprised me given the location). I will definitely recommend her to family and friends.
Doctor brandes was amazing! She was very gentle throughout my whole procedure. Loved my first visit I was there.
Office is beautiful, staff is very friendly and helpful. I was taken in right away. Dr. Brandes devoted a lot of time to my care and patiently answered all my questions and concerns. She even took the time to email me an interactive video about the proper way to brush my teeth! It was the best dentist experience I've had and would gladly recommend her to everyone I know!
5 star visit. A professional and made it an experience that I would recommend to friends and family.
She was super friendly and seemed to really like being a dentist, but not in an annoying, over enthusiastic way. She was timely, called me personally when I had a questions before my visit, and had a clean office. Her chair had a TV, so while I was getting my cleaning, I watched some people scuba dive in Thailand. Definitely recommend her, and the staff.
FANTASTIC. Truly the best dentist visit I've ever had. Irene is incredibly personable, her office is very nice, and her staff is excellent. I highly recommend her.
This was a transformative dental experience! The office has a great vibe-- music was playing during my exam and they have this nice television above the dental chair with a slideshow of various soothing images to calm the nerves. Dr. Brandes is really thorough and has a very pleasant demeanor. I definitely trusted her opinion and she gave me a great dental cleaning! I loathe going to the dentist but she made the experience really great- totally recommend her.
Despite being petrified of going to the dentist after years and year of not seeing one, my experience at this office was amazing. Everyone is very friendly and the wait time was nonexistent. Dr. Brandes performed almost all the dental work and cleaning herself, making sure to explain everything as she went along. She didn't pass any judgment and instead made helpful suggestions and let me know what work should be done. She even squeezed in a procedure despite it being very late in the afternoon/early evening and it was so painless and easy that I went back the next day for a another. I have already recommended her to a few people!
Dr. Brandes is fantastic--I'm an extremely phobic dental patient with severe TMJ and a mess of a mouth. She's gentle, fast and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
