Verified Patient Reviews
I had two horrible experiences when I was a teenager with dentists and I had not been back to see one until yesterday. I was so terrified that the dentist would try to upsell me unnecessary cosmetic procedures or make me feel bad about myself for not having gone to the dentist in over twenty years. Dr. Pomerantz was kind and understanding. While he did mention the spaces in my teeth and that I could get Invisalign, and I said I wasn't interested, he was completely respectful of my wishes with no question. He assured me that when I get my teeth cleaned that I would be able to get Novacaine, which, considering it's been over twenty years...it's going to be long and somewhat painful. I felt respected, heard, and comforted. The office staff was very kind and attentive as well. I will be taking care of my teeth regularly now that I have a dentist I can trust.
Dr. Pomerantz and his staff are all friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.
The dentist can be a scary place, but not here. Very personable, friendly environment. Teeth felt great after my cleaning!
Got a same day appointment for a broken tooth, and Dr saw me right away. He made it very easy and almost painless!
Dr Pomerantz and his staff are great. They make you feel comfortable and Dr Pomerantz always has some good stories to tell you. He's been my dentist for over 20 years and I TOTALLY recommend him.
Great Doctor great staff
it was very pleasant and effective,serious business
he is highly competent, very precise in the ificult task of handling the teeth without causing pain/dolor; he is certainly a kind peraon
I had a wonderful visit at Dr. Pomerantz's office.
I am so glad I have found a professional who specializes in my area of concern, TMJD. Even though the reason for my visit was urgent to me, Dr. Pomerantz assured me that everything was okay and could be fixed with simple regimens which I followed and found to be effective. He seems to be an extremely intelligent professional and I enjoyed talking with him. Not a fan of the front desk staff though as there was an issue with my insurance and payment and she did not approach it kindly.
Excellent Dentist!!! Explained the procedure in a manner which calmed my nervousness and fear. Dr. Pomerantz and His Dental Hygienist were professional and outstanding!!!
Thoughtful, caring and very accommodating!
Excellent staff. Jeffrey is extremely nice and professional. I have been to numerous dentists around the world and I must say his technique and approach is outstanding.
He was so nice and explained why he was recommending the next steps and diagnosis.
What an amazing experience. Dr Pomerantz is a true professional
He is the best dentist.
Absolutely the best Dentist I have ever attended. He was informative, caring and cost conscious. I would go no where else after being with Dr Pomerantz.
I am blown away by my visit last week! One of my laminates (or veneers, not sure) cracked on one of my front teeth and was about to come off. I had set an appointment with my previous dentist for the following Monday, but it was Thursday and I needed to get it done sooner. Plus my former dentist would have made molds, given me a temporary and I'd have to come back again. Dr. Pomerantz was able to see me right away. The Dr. examined my tooth and told me he can fix it right now! I was then transported into the land of science fiction where the Dr. took a 3D image of my teeth and constructed a new tooth for me on a computer screen, designing it to perfection. Then he put the material into a machine which sculpted my tooth and he adhered it to my tooth. It looks, feels, and fit perfectly. No one included myself can see a difference. The entire appointment was 2 hours long and my insurance covered a good portion of the work. I don't think I have ever been more pleased walking out of any doctor's or dentist's office ever. I can't even begin to express how highly I think of Dr. Pomerantz and I definitely recommend him without any reservations. Great guy too.
The visit was only to check on a tooth that was bothering me but he was very professional and saw me right on time. He's better than other dentists I've seen in the city.
Did a great job with my root canal
I was referred to this doctor by a friend and was very pleased with how I was treated. Dr. Pomerantz saw me as an emergency patient, performed a major procedure the same day because he didn't want me to have to wait. He was concerned and attentive throughout the procedure. Office staff and hygienists were very nice as well. Very clear about cost and insurance coverage.
I stopped in to see Dr. Pomerantz for something that came up unexpected, a pain in my jaw that I've been experiencing. Wait time was minimal, 5 mins maybe. He spent a lot of time with me explaining how and why this occurs, addressing answering all my questions and concerns. He seemed genuinely concerned and did not try to sell me something I may or may not need (i.e. Night guard for teeth grinder during sleep). It's often not easy to find a good "anything" (lawyer, accountant, mechanic), for me, I think I've found a good dentist.
I don't even mind that my appointment was for 1030 and wasn't seen until almost after 11. Everyone in that office was SO NICE. I had the worst toothache imaginable, and they were kind to me. When we discussed pulling my tooth, they had me wait. But once he saw me in pain, he took care of me and numbed the pain! Absolutely wonderful. THANK YOU! If I could, I'd give a million stars!
I am a dental-phobe but Dr. Pomerantz' bedside manor and tone put me at ease! No one wants dental surgery, but I'd go back to him any time!
Dr. Pomerantz diagnosed and treated my dental issue(no root canal indicated) at my initial visit. My Dentist had looked at the same xray and said I needed root canal. Thank you Dr. Pomerantz, you are a credit to your profession.
Dr. Pomerantz is knowledgeable and friendly. His office is bright, comfortable, and always up-to-date with the latest technology. Highly recommend!
Dr. Pomerantz is a true professional! Such an awesome bedside manner, and gave me all the information I needed to move forward with treatment. I recommend him highly!
It was about as painless as it could be.
Dr. Pomerantz is a total pro. He made me feel comfortable, understood and informed about all the procedures and fixes they were doing. His staff was kind and walked me through all of the pricing so I knew exactly what I was paying for. They're using technology I haven't seen in other doctor's offices that made my visit easy and fast. I'd recommend him to friends and family, and already have.
Dr. Pomerantz is the best!
I have been very pleased with Dr. Pomerantz. He has a great manner and makes you feel comfortable. I have always found that his appointment scheduling to be accurate. I've always been seen on time. He also clearly explains your different treatment options. Overall I think he is a great dentist.
Dr. Pomerantz was very thorough and explained his suggestions fully.
Dr. Pomerantz is a caring, professional dentist. He saw me right away and evaluated the cause of my tooth pain. The staff is very professional and he uses state of the art equipment. I would definitely recommend this dental practice.
I have TMJ (Jaw locking) problem so I'm horrified of dentists! Opening your mouth for a long period (or even short other than yawning) scares me and hurts. But Dr.Jefferey makes you feel comfortable and I can see that he genuinely cares about you. It's like going to your grandfather's place! He know what he's doing and very good at his job!
Amazing staff and doctor.
Very knowledgeable & caring. Found my problem pretty quickly. Had a root canal & crown. Very high tech. Even makes the crown right in his office. I would send my family here if they were in the city.
Dr. Pomerantz is always friendly and concerned. I am pleased and fortunate to have him for my dentist.
They are very professional and tend to you right away.
My first visit to Dr Pomerantz office was in January 2015 - nothing urgent but I knew I needed filling replacements and since they started to hurt I knew I should see a specialist. I booked the appointment Friday afternoon for early coming Monday. When I got to the DR's office turned out they haven't received online registration as their office was already closed and they had another patient scheduled for that time. Nevertheless the Dr took me in after that appointment and fixed everything that needed to be done on my teeth. I just had another appointment for cleaning and follow up and it was easy and very fast. When you book your appointment just keep in mind that the office is not open all day and if you have an urgent case - always better to call.
excellent dentist, takes time to listen to patients.
Dr. Pomerantz is wonderful. I am very pleased with his treatment.
Initial consultation. Left with a positive experience.
Unfortunately, I have been to countless dentists throughout my 30 years, and Dr. Pomerantz has been the most professional, knowledgeable and courteous dentist to date. His dental work is clean, up to date, accurate and it lasts! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Pomerantz was great! Really knowledgable and great skills. Removed both my wisdom teeth with minimal pain or discomfort. Was knowledgable and give me all the info to prevent any post procedural issues.
Dr. Pomerantz is INCREDIBLE!!! I have been going to him for around 10 years now and I couldn't be happier!! I came to him with a lot of dental work that needed to be done and he fixed everything!! He is kind and smart and a leader and teacher in his field. He responds to all dental emergencies I have had and I will continue referring dear friends and family to him! Also his assistant Joanne and his office manager Lauren are AMAZING as well! They are kind, helpful, always willing to work around my crazy schedule, and they always make me feel like VIP. Not to mention everyone in the office is extremely knowledgeable and FUN!!! I never thought I would be able say going to the dentist was fun with Dr. Pomerance and awesome staff it's always a pleasure!!!
very good-excellent dentist who spends time with patients.
I have been seeing Dr. Pomerantz for 15 years. Now that I left New York City, and live 1 1/2 hours away, I still go in to see him for treatment. He is a kind and very competent doctor. Karen H.
very caring dentist, really concerned about getting the treatment done correctly.
He was great. He was efficient, it was as painless as it could be, and he asked every few minutes if I was doing okay. I was in and out in about 30 minutes for 2 fillings.
Dr. Pomerantz has a excellent manner of talking with patients and answers all the questions asked, sometimes in great detail.
Friendliest dentist ever! explained thoroughly why and what needs to be done.
Dr Pomerantz has incredible bedside manner and is so wonderful in general. He is meticulous and pays attention and really comforts the situation. The staff and dental hygenists are the BEST.
What a pleasant experience! Everyone in the office was extremely nice and it was very well-kept. Highly recommend Dr. Pomerantz for your next dentist visit.
Every good treatment, the staff over all was welcoming and professional.
Ethically challenged in regards to pricing and transparency
Dr. Pomerantz makes me feel very comfortable and I am terrified of going to the dentist! I have had major work done with Dr. Pomerantz and I have to say it was not bad at all!!!!! I actually have made it a point to continue my visits and it makes me feel very good about myself! So THANK YOU DR.POMERANTZ for putting a SMILE back on my face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Every visit to Dr. Pomerantz's office was been great (well as good as a visit to a denitst can be haha). The entire staff of the office is friendly & courteous, everyone made me feel welcome. Dr. Pomerantz always makes me feel at ease regardless of the procedure or appointment.
Dr. Pomerantz is quite the professional. I have been working with him just about twice weekly since the end of August 2014. He offers a thorough explanation of all procedures with assurance and ease. Good sense of humor as well. A must when dealing with extensive dental work. His staff is respectful and accommodating.
Super thorough about treatment options and great bedside manner. He was extremely personable. I could have chatted with him all day long.
Dr. Pomerantz is awesome! He is so friendly, knowledgble and very acommodating. I was late for my appointment but I was taken almost right away. Staffs are very friendly and Dr. Pomerantz took time to explain to me regarding my condition. He made very practical suggestions and welcome questions. Excellent bedside manner! Strongly recommend!

Best Dentist I've ever had.
Dr. Pomerantz is the best ! He know what he's doing and does it well !
A great way to spend an afternoon.
He was very friendly and helpful. The visit was done in a timely fashion.
It had been awhile since my last dental exam and Dr. Pomerantz was super nice and made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Pomerantz was so lovely. He was very pleasant to talk to but not overbearing, and was really understanding of my needs, and very happy to explain everything to me in detail. I am definitely going back.
Excellent! Was looking for a new dentist in the city and will be making him my primary dentist.
Very nice office. I was seen right away and had a very thorough cleaning. Dr. Pomerantz took his time explaining my xrays and answered any further questions I had. Would highly recommend!
Very honest about my treatment, taking a more conservative route in terms of jumping to surgery which I appreciated.
I was in and out pretty quick.
I had a dental emergency and Dr. Pomerantz was able to help resolve the issue with the proper treatment. He is great about explaining every step of the process and understanding of patient fears/concerns. I typically ask lots of questions, which sometimes annoys some doctors, however, he had a great attitude and was more than happy to address my questions. I highly recommend him.
Best dentist I've ever been to. Super friendly, personable, and most importantly--honest!! Someone who actually wants whats best for you, not his wallet--so rare in the medical field! Only dentist in America that didn't insist I take my wisdom teeth out and actually advised against it (all the ones I saw in Taiwan echoed this)
The nicest Dentist or Doctor I have ever visited. I only went in for my general consultation this morning, so I cannot comment on must more than his bedside manner.
He is great, I had to get a root canal and it was a seamless process. My new dentist!
Pleasant visit to the Dentist. Everyone was professional and polite. I am happy my girlfirend found Dr. Pomerantz for me.
Took time to get to know me before discussing anything dental. High level of comfort. Office is clean and modern. Dental hygienist was thorough. Fortunately I didn't need any serious dental work, so this review is admittedly general and non-specific.
Dr. Pomerantz did a fantastic job of fitting me with a crown that he fabricated right in his office. Instead of multiple visits to insert a post, take molds, attach crown, etc, his system uses a computer to scan the area, and then create the crown/post shape from a single block of porcelain. Then he just drops it in. One visit, I never even notice it. Amazing. Great guy.
Six stars! Dentist was extremely knowledgeable, as well as friendly and efficient, and his work looks great. I will definitely go back.
My visit with Dr. Pomerantz was great - he was very friendly, personable and professional, taking the time to explain things. I got 3 cavities filled (resin).
Dr. Pomerantz is very nice, he talks to you to ease your anxiety before having dental check and he give detailed explanation to your problem and keep you informed with actions taken.
Finally found my primary dentist in New York. Didn't feel like I was going through a meat grinder of patients like with other dentists; Dr. Pomerantz was very thorough and explained everything very clearly, taking his time to answer everything i asked about. I felt like a student--in a good way! Staff were friendly and kind, no wait for my morning appointment.
He was very accommodating. Dr. Pomerantz catered to my upcoming school schedule and squeezed me in for a cleaning. Hope he caught his train on time.
The dental hygienist did a good job with my cleaning. Dr. Pomerantz was nice and thorough. i'll definitely be seeing them again for my next cleaning.
He was very smart, nice, and personable. Dr. Pomerantz really made sure I was taken care of.
He really cares for his patients, I didn't feel rushed at any point and he took the time to get to know me. The office is modernly equipped and the staff are true professionals of their trade.
Excellent. A really honest guy who wants the best for his patients.
Dr. was very nice and took his time with me, and the Assistant that did my cleaning did an amazingly thorough job!
Doctor Pomerantz is a fantastic dentist, knowledgeable about the latest developments and enthusiastic still after years of experience. His staff is just as strong, and I've already recommended him to others at my office. Things got busy toward the end of my cleaning and I could not get a hold of him to ask him some follow-up questions, but it's not a big deal.
As usual Dr. Pomerantz is an excellent dentist. He is professional, courteous and caring and his expertise is re-assuring.
Doctor was pleasant and professional, as were his assistants. I might have caught the receptionist on a bad day but she wasn't very welcoming. Minor detail though, everything that mattered was excellent.
Dr. Pomerantz was incredibly nice, very helpful and easy to talk to. His hygienist was also excellent! My teeth have never felt cleaner! I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Pomerantz.
Excellent bedside manner, great staff, very nice office.
I don't spend all year in New York City and don't have a regular dentist, so I was concerned when I had a problem. I couldn't be happier with the service at Dr. Pomerantz's office. More than satisfied with my treatment and the time he spent with me. He will be my regular NYC dentist!
Dr. Pomerantz is very kind and gentle and take good care of patients.
Dr. Pomerantz was incredibly personable and attuned to my needs. He seemed genuinely interested in my dental health and personal comfort. He's the type of guy you'd be happy to grab a beer with!
Went online the night before and was able to schedule the appointment the next afternoon. He fixed my chipped tooth - looks exactly like my other tooth with minimal pain. Maybe it was my insurance but the bill was a lot higher than I was expecting.
Very nice guy. Explained things to me thoroughly.
Excellent, will use him again.
