Verified Patient Reviews
We all have horrible dental experiences. This visit with Dr. Figueroa was absolutely wonderful. The staff and doctor are welcoming and friendly. My comfort and understanding of procedures available to me were the main focus. Dr. Figueroa listened to my issues (bilateral trigeminal neuralgia) and understood my hesitation for certain work that should be done. She LISTENED to me and her staff GOT MY INSURANCE COVERAGE AND OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE WHILE I WAITED!! Am I impressed? Heck yes. I waited 8 months for this exact treatment from that "other" dentist. 8 months to 8 minutes is a remarkable turn around. Dr. Figueroa has some nerves treating me like I actually count and my time was valuable! Great office staff with Dr. Captain Figueroa is where I want to go when I need a dentist. The office is warm, happy and they have a massage feature in the dental chair! MASSAGE WHILE IN A DENTAL CHAIR PEOPLE!!! I'm going back for sure. They'll be lucky I don't move in with them.
Professional office and dental staff. Immaculate office. Sensible dental recommendations. I'll be back for sure.
Everyone at this place is professional and kind. The receptionist was also very nice and helpful with the check in process and reservation. Dr. Figueroa was patient in explaining my problems and answered all my questions. Quick diagnosis and gave helpful advice. The hygienist made sure I wasn't uncomfortable during teeth cleansing and I hardly felt any pain! She was very friendly and did a very thorough job. The only thing was wait time was a little long (probably because of previous patients), and they gave me a teeth whitening kit as an apology for keeping me waiting for so long. Overall, was a great experience. Professional staff, thorough treatment, and everyone was very helpful/kind. Would definitely recommend!
I'm glad to have scheduled my appointment here. I've always have had a hard time finding the right dentist that would fulfill my dental needs. They made me feel very comfortable and helped me understand my insurance better than anyone else has. Everyone was very attentive and friendly. I will definitely be coming back.
Cindy gave the best cleaning I've ever had! Very happy with my visit.
Dr. Perdomo and the team made sure that there was no wait time and provided clear and constructive advice for better taking care of my teeth.
Everyone in this office went above and beyond to try to make me feel comfortable. I am not the biggest fan of dentists so the fact that I felt relaxed and comfortable from checking in until the end of my appointment is awesome. Also thank goodness they call to remind you of your appointment, it is very helpful. Best dentist experience I have had in a while.
Everyone at the office was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.
I just moved to the city and was looking for a new dentist. A friend of mine recommended Jessica and it was a wonderful experience. The staff is very friendly and provided a lovely dental cleaning.
Great doctor, staff and office!
Had an emergency and they got me an appointment right away. Excellent service!
I came early and was unable to see Dr. Figueroa, however the receptionist was very accommodating and had me see Dr. Cummings who was great. My hygienist Cindy was great too. I love the overall professionalism and attitude of every one in the office and would definitely come back!
I had a great experience at Presidental and with Dr. Figueroa. There was no wait time, and all of the staff were extremely nice and professional. Also, it was extremely helpful how I was provided with a breakdown of exactly what insurance would cover and what I would be responsible for paying.
The staff is very professional and extremely knowledgable. The office is very inviting. The doctor is very professional and offered lots of support and advice. A great visit.
Best experience at the dentist I have ever had. Extremely friendly staff (good looking too)! After submitting my paper I went to be seen immediately. Super thorough cleaning and everyone genuinely cared about what they were doing. This has become my primary dentist.
Dr. Figueroa was very professional and nice, she clearly explained to me what was going on with my tooth and showed me images to explain my options. I would definitely return.
i would highly recommend! The staff is excellent and very friendly. The doctor is great. Everyone there is professional. She is very knowledgable and I'm happy with the care I have received. I will certainly return.
I recommend this office to everyone I know, they're incredibly helpful and super friendly!
Dr. Figueroa and her team was wonderful! I gag easily, but they took the time to do my x-rays and my cleaning and they were really patient with me. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Figueroa was very sweet. She didn't scold me either for not being to the dentist in so long. I feel very at ease after seeing her and im happy to say she has me as a long term patient.
Love everyone that works there! I am such a baby and they are so sweet to me and always make sure that I am as comfortable as possible. Highly professional and friendly.
I went in for an annual checkup and to get my wisdom teeth checked out. it turned out that I needed to get my bottom two wisdom teeth extracted, and Dr Figueroa and her staff were great about explaining what needed to be done and figuring out a payment plan for me.
The hygienist Stephany was really personable and did a great job.
Dr. Figueroa and her team were delightful. They were very accommodating and professional, and I was very satisfied with my visit. She was the first dentist I have seen since my childhood dentist, so I do not have too much to compare to, but my experience with her was excellent overall.
It was overall a good experience. Dr. Figueroa and the dental hygenists are knowledgeable and very professional. I would recommend this place to a friend.
Dr. Figueroa was great. The office was clean and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
I was referred to Dr. Figueroa by a coworker and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The hygienist was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and the doctor was warm, kind and helpful. Most importantly, I felt confident after I left the office that my teeth were clean and in good shape. I would highly recommend Dr. Figueroa and her staff to others.
I see another doctor than listed here (have never met with Dr. Figueroa) but I like the dr. I see. Have been going regularly for over a year now and he does a great job remembering who I am and details of what we have looked at and discussed. Teeth have been well cared for!
Great team! Very pleasant experience!
The cleaning was done by the assistant not the dentist
Wait time was a bit long but both my dental assistant as well as Dr. Figueroa were very kind, professional, and informative.
She is the best dentist! Always so patient with me and really seems to love what she does. Everyone in this office is always so nice and accommodating. I'm the crazy person that tells strangers i meet to see Dr Figueroa
It was my first visit to the dental office of J. Figueroa, DDS and I was surprised by the punctuality. Waiting time was less than three minutes. The purpose of my visit was teeth cleaning and Dr. Figueroa performed the cleaning herself in order to evaluate the teeth condition. The office is modern, clean and obviously well set. Thanks to Albert, the front desk guy and Tatiana who took x-rays, my visit was pleasant,brief, and efficient.
My NYC Doctor experience has been difficult to say the least! I highly recommend Dr. Figueroa because you can tell she really listens and understands your concerns. I had braces and jaw surgery when I was in High School and have not really been to a Dentist in several years. I recently had a neck injury and was having a lot of issues again with my jaw and noticed a cavity forming on one of my teeth. I was completely nervous but the staff was very comforting and understanding. Everything was very quick but I did not feel rushed. I had a great hygienist who made the X-rays go by fast and you could see them on the monitor they have attached to the chair. Dr. Figueroa came in; she was very warm and easy to talk to. She evaluated my jaw and saw that I needed a night guard and worked with my Health Insurance Company to cover the cost. She then showed me all of my trouble spots… I had a lot of cavities and began to see dollar signs! As my new insurance does not kick in until the January of 2015, she worked with my current budget and helped me to set a plan for treatment. She was very positive which is a big help when you are in that situation. I have a lot to do but I feel completely confident in Dr. Figueroa and her staff! Definitely the best Dentist I have ever had.
I didn't see Dr. Figueroa. I saw her colleague, but the experience was excellent nonetheless. I didn't wait long to see a dentist, and I felt that they cared about my experience there. Everyone was gentle ,and they made sure to double-check to see what my insurance did or did not cover. They also took the time to walk me through my treatment plan, which I appreciated immensely. I would totally recommend this office to my coworkers and/or friends.
Wonderful! Everyone in the office is pleasant and friendly, and Dr. Figueroa herself is professional, kind and efficient. Highly recommend.
Very nice, professional, and thorough! Took more pictures of my teeth than I have ever had done, gave me good advice for how to brush better and care for my teeth between visits. She also did not try to convince me to do any unnecessary procedures, which I really appreciated. Made me feel comfortable and welcome.
Incredibly nice staff, they answered all my questions and were honest about the work that I needed to get as well as helping to show me prices since I was worried about the expenses. I've already recommended Dr. Figueroa to my friends as I really have not been as comfortable at a dentist's office as I was here!
Dr. Figueroa is very professional and she built her office from scratch herself and outfitted it with state of the art equipment. Her staff is very sweet and kind. She knows how important being available to her customers is, even on a Saturday! I highly recommend Jessica and her practice!
She is very professional and friendly. The staff are also very attentive.
I am TERRIFIED of having any work done to my mouth, even teeth cleaning…hadn't gone to a dentist in a couple of years; however, I was very self conscious about some of the spacing and lengths of my teeth, so I decided to schedule a consultation for veneers. I got x-rays right away and Dr. Figureroa was very receptive to everything I said I was self conscious about, the changes I wanted. In minutes, she showed me what we could do and said we could get started right then! She helped to make sure I could be covered under my insurance and got to work! I am a huge baby and the entire staff was extremely professional, kind, and patient with me. I am 23 and I was holding a stuffed cow. They all reassured me that it would not be painful, and if at any time I did feel pain, to just put up a hand and we could stop. I already have my temporary veneers on and I get to get the porcelain ones in a couple of days! Such a great experience. Thank you thank you thank you!
Very clean, very professional, very welcoming, very skilled
This office is fully of friendly professionals, the wait time is really short, and they are always ready to explain should you have any concerns.
Every time is great. All the staff is friendly and welcoming.
All of the staff in the office made me feel very comfortable and attended to. They are clearly very knowledgeable and really care about the health of their patients. I'm glad I found this office, it's right by my job, so I will definitely be coming back again.
I love her! She's the only dentist I trust!
Phenomenal! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. A real pleasure.
She answered all my question and everyone was very nice
It was great!
The staff was very friendly and professional. While I have a high threshold for pain and never saw an issue with going to the Dentist, they were very concerned with my comfort throughout the process and very accommodating.
Very patient and attentive.
Dr. Figueroa made feel feel very comfortable. The dental hygenists were knowledgeable and very professional. Overall, this was a plesant experience.
Great place, state of the art.
Extremely professional office environment and extremely gentle when working on my teeth! Great staff.
Professional, thorough, gentle, and very kind!
Where knowledgeable regarding care. Friendly and well spoken
I found Dr Figueroa on zocdoc when I first moved to NYC 3 years ago and I'll never leave her. She's fun, friendly, informative, thorough, and just a fantastic dentist. Her staff is very friendly too!
She was excellent ! Highly recommended!
The office was very quiet and clean, the hygenist was very thorough and I got a nice goodie bag. The dentist spent probably almost 10 mins with me, which I thought was nice because they usually run in and out and I didn't have any issues with my teeth and she still was that attentive.
Absolutely amazing and very professional. Her office is welcoming and clean. Very impressed with the technology she has invested in. Will definitely be coming back.
Jessica really cared about providing me with a personal and tailored experience. She presented me with all the options available for the treatments I was considering, and objectively helped me choose the best option, regardless of price, etc. She is professional and fun loving at the same time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends.
Very considerate of tooth sensitivity. Another great cleaning.
Dr. Figueroa was very professional and very nice. There is no reason why I wouldn't go see her again.
Extremely professional, very nice, very knowledgeable.
Jessica and the receptionist were both very pleasant. She was gentle and friendly during my visit.
She was great
She's really nice and thorough. The office is nice and clean.
Jessica was very helpful and informative definitely a great experience!!!
Very nice office. Staff was really friendly and informative. Felt I got personal attention and wasn't rushed. highly, highly recommended.
This was a fantastic dentist's appointment. The administrative staff was very friendly and helpful with my paperwork, the assistants were great cleaning, and Dr. Figueroa seemed knowledgable and friendly.
She was great !!! Nice considerate gentle and very helpful with insurance details all of her equipment is high tech and clean as can be!!! I would highly reccomend her!!
Dr. Figueroa was friendly and prompt. She was able to do x-rays, clean my teeth, and do a filling in about an hour. I would recommend her.
Excellent service. Highly professional - and gave great advice for ways to better care for my teeth!
She was very personable and easy to get along with. She explained everything very clearly and gave some great recommendations to me. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease and is very knowledgeable!
Great experience and I usually don't like going to the dentist.
This was my second visit to her office. Dr. Figueroa is very highly skilled, outstanding professional. As a result of the procedure I had during the second visit, I have decided to make her my primary dentist. I highly, highly recommend her.
Her staff is very friendly and she always takes time to talk to me. I will be visiting every 6 months!
I have mixed emotions about this experience. Everyone in the office was super nice - the receptionists, the dental hygenist, the dentist, etc. All very warm and kind. However, I did have to wait at least an hour to see the dentist and then she literally cleaned my teeth in about 15 min (definitely no more than 20). I have never timed a cleaning before but this seems VERY fast. I'm pretty sure I was the last appointment of the day (I finally saw the dentist at 7:30pm) and I just get the feeling that she rushed it.
Dr. Figueroa is a gem. She and her staff are professional, kind and very helpful. I will definitely go back.
I have been multiple times. She sees patients at the appointment time, I have not had to wait. I have received excellent care. The staff are professional and organized. They have a payment plan for patients not covered by insurance... Finally I have found a dentist I can live with!
I love her! And the dental assistants are great too. They really explain what they are doing and seeing and are kind.
By far the most fun dentist's appointment ever. I love their X-ray machine! Everyone was great, very attentive and got the tooth out with pretty much no pain :)
Was extremely happy with Dr. Figueroa, her assistant, and receptionist. They were all friendly and professional. I love the fact that the office is very clean and immaculate.
Great experience overall! Office is nice and all equipment new - great view of the streets of Manhattan. Gave me a warm lemon towel to wipe my face after my cleaning which was a nice touch. Everyone was friendly and professional. I will recommend to others.
I found the staff and Dr. Figueroa to be professional, prompt,and the dental work was meticulous. I would highly recommend Dr. Figueroa.
Everyone in the office was extremely nice. The doctor was very friendly but still professional. The cleaning was very quick and painless. Easy to do on a lunch break.
The care and treatment at this facility goes beyond excellent. The staff, from front desk operator to the assistant to Dr Figueroa is of the best and most professional I've experienced. Thank you very much everyone. Looking forward to future visits.
Dr. Figueroa was very knowledgeable and patient.
Was a great experience. Friendly staff, very professional. Was in and out!
Dr. Figueroa and her staff were amazing-- very friendly and professional. They helped me figure out my dental insurance policy, and Dr. Figueroa made the appointment very easy.
Very personable and great at explaining procedures. Took the time to answer and questions and created a very warm, safe environment.
Warm, welcoming staff from start to finish. Dr. Figueroa is pleasant, polite, professional, and very informative. She has a very sincere and guilt-free way of explaining your bad habits and what you could improve on for better dental hygiene. Highly recommended!
Really nice, competent and did a thorough job. She did my cleaning herself and explained everything she was doing. I went back to get a filling and trusted her to try it without numbing me up first. Funnily enough, the filling hurt less than the cleaning (not that the cleaning was all that painful).
Dr. Figueroa and her staff were all very friendly and helpful with any questions I had. The women at the front desk made me feel very welcome when I came in and helped me with any questions I had regarding insurance. Dr. Figueroa is very knowledgable and my cleaning was quick yet very thorough. They even gave me a chocolate in the toothbrush bag when I was on my way out. Would highly reccomend. Oh, and the best part. THEY'RE OPEN ON SATURDAYS!!!
she is beyond awesome!!! extremely sweet,makes you want to come back to the dentist!!! the little kit they give you when you leave has chocolates too. awesome office, amazing staff- best dentist ever!!
Very professional, very thorough. Explained the effects of various habits I have and worked with me to figure out how to improve them.
Extremely helpful, and competent.
I hate going to the dentist and hadn't had a cleaning in a few years. Dr. Figueroa and her assistant were both professional, warm, informative and friendly. I plan to continue seeing Dr. Figueroa for my twice-yearly cleanings.
Very nice, excellent at explaining things, really nice office. Only thing that bothered me a little was she spoke in Spanish to her assistant a few times (which I don't understand) and that made me feel a little uncomfortable because I didn't know what was being said. But I always get anxious going to the dentist anyway, and everything else was great! I'd highly recommend her.
She really is a great. She explains everything, checks up on you. Does not give you services you don't need.
Very annoying wait time but it is because she is so thorough and attentive to the patient she is seeing. I would recommend coming 15 minutes late. Her bedside manner is exceptional and she takes the time to explain everything she sees and gives suggestions.
I thought Jessica was great. She was lovely, as was her whole staff. The office is very clean. They have great new technology. She was willing to walk me through the whole process, discussed options, and I felt welcome there. I have my next appointment booked already!
I like her and her bedside manner when she is working on my needs, but occasionally she bows out to work on another patient and then come back to me. This sometimes leaves me waiting in the chair for 10-15 mins in intervals of my visit, which I do dislike. This however has not yet deterred me from coming back. Her office is nice and she is great so I am hoping those were just rare occasions.
I have visited many Dentists in my life time, but in my point of view Jessica Figueroa is hands down the best dentist in all of New York. She is simply amazing, her knowledge is mind blowing. Please do yourself a favor and contact this office right away and book an appointment.
The office staff was warm and friendly and ready for me as soon as I got there. I really enjoyed my experience.
She was fantastic. Really nice when I was nervous and explained everything to me very clearly. Also great that she takes appointments after work hours and on Saturdays!
A true Jewel in the hard cement city. I read the reviews before I went to her and they are all true, she does take her time and treats everyone w/respect. I won't mind waiting a little longer to be treated by her. She listens and respects what you say and doesn't ignore you as so many Doctors do. I've already recommended her to 2 friends and won't stop.
Dr. very friendly, office is well organized, spacious and clean; did have a problem with a cavity she filled though. She repaired it free of cost.
She was very warm and efficient--I felt comfortable immediately. She also took the time to really explain everything to me. Definitely recommend her.
Caring, honest, professional. And I got two free Mets tickets for being a new patient. Would highly recommend Dr. Figueroa and her office.
Dr. Figueroa was very thorough in explaining was issues, if any were present, steps to fix everything and explained everything that was going on while in the chair. Really refreshing, as past Dentists have been KINGS of upsells and unnecessary treatments. The entire staff was friendly and helpful, which is odd considering we close to mid-town Manhattan.
Dr. Figueroa was great! She took the time to explain to me what she saw in my X-Rays and discussed ways I could improve my teeth. She was very thorough and made sure I was comfortable during the whole appointment. Before recommending any course of action she had her staff checked to make sure that my insurance would cover it.
The assistant was quick and professional in getting the x-rays done for Jessica to get started on my initial exam and cleaning. Jessica also went above and beyond offering to find out further info on a specific procedure that I am interested in.
Dr. Figueroa is excellent, outstanding, attentive and very professional. Everyone should make her their primary dentist. Trust me you wont regret paying a visit to her office. I made her my dentist for life!!!!!
This was my first time using ZocDoc and my first time with Dr. Figueroa. Her office was nice and very clean. She was very professional, warm and welcoming, as was her receptionist and dental assistant. She made recommendations about possible procedures, yet didn't impose any unnecessary pressure and took the time to explain everything in detail. I will definitely be going back to her.
Very pleasant and professional. Was able to get a same day appointment and she saw me right away.
The Doctor was great. I wish her dental assistant knew English a little more but she was still sweet nonetheless. I had to wait a little bit but her office manager was great in giving me a time frame and I felt good about the Doctor and the facilities. Good find will go back!
I love this dentist. I no longer live in this neighborhood but now go out of my way to see her.
They fit me in early and were super nice about everything.
The dentist tried selling me X-ray even when I told here I did not want it. She kept pushing me and it was uncomfortable. I didn't like the attitude that just because my insurance is paying for it, they wanted to do it. I think they even charged my insurance for it even though they didn't do the x-ray.
Fantastic! Definitely making her my new dentist. I'm new to the city so I was apprehensive about new doctors. Dr. Figueroa was so friendly and incredibly kind to me and her staff. She explained everything she was doing as she did it, and I got a free whitening kit. The office was very clean and had a very nice receptionist. I honestly have never had a better dental experience.
Great experience, the office was very clean and welcoming. Dr. Figueroa did a thorough cleaning. I would gladly recommend to a friend.
Dr Figueroa is very approachable and knowledgeable. And I totally agree with the earlier comment that she seems to really enjoy what she is doing. I had a GREAT time in the office. everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. Many thanks
Finally a nice dentist office! Doctor is really competent, nice and willing to explain everything! She totally takes her time to be with the patient and even the cleaning she did by herself. Would totally recommend her.
Dr. Figueroa was very kind and approachable, and gave me good tips about caring for my teeth. I also like that she has convenient hours (Saturdays and evenings) My only concern is that the wait was a little bit long, but since it was after work hours, I wasn't as bothered by it.
The office itself is fine - clean and orderly - but nothing fancy like some of the very high-end offices. The staff was extremely nice and friendly, as was Jessica. I've been to many dentists, and she gave me the impression that she really knows what she's doing, from the way that she performed routine procuedures to her ability to answer questions and point out things about my teeth. I'd definitely go back to see her again. Also, for Spanish speakers that don't speak very good English, everyone in the office seemed to be fluent in Spanish.
Very informative and nice.
Great experience, she was awesome!
