Verified Patient Reviews
I sure would recommend Dr. Salim.
Dr Salim is very patient and calmly explains the treatment. He is very professional and meticulous. I had enamel fillers out in and when he was done, I couldn’t even tell as they were so seamlessly done.
The staff at Sutton Place dental is always amazing. I've been going to them since 1995 approximately and wouldn't even think of going to anyone else. I've always been dental phobic but since I've been going here, I don't mind going for any dental work.
I am having quite a bit of work done on my teeth this year. I am usually a skittish patient, but somehow with Dr. Salim, I am not. The office seems to invest in all of the latest equipment, proving how much they care their patients' comfort. I recommend him to anyone!
Dr Salim is always very nice, and I am always seen very quickly. The practice is very good at outlining treatment plans and costs ahead of the appointment, so you walk into each appointment knowing exactly what will be occurring! Would highly recommend Dr Salim.
Amazing staff. Amazing doctor !
Friendly professional and helpful.
Dr. Salim was not only extremely hospitable as was all his staff, but he was very knowledgeable, calm, and genuine. Truly a great experience, especially for someone who is scared of dentists like me.
He is a caring doctor who takes his job serious. He is responsive to patient's questions/concerns and takes time to provide a high quality service.
Seen for an emergency filling. The office staff worked to find a slot within 24 hours, and booked a time with Dr. Salim. Filling was quick and easy. I also did molds for a mouth guard, when Dr. Salim flagged that it would be less than 5% the cost the oral surgeon estimated.
Awesome because I got my teeth whitened with a brand new system in under an hour with no pain at all Can't beat that in my book
Dr Salim is an excellent dentist. I have been going to him for many years and have also been delighted with his work and his care. He is thorough and meticulous.
I was very pleased with my experience. Similar to most of you, the dentist is not exactly my favorite happy hour spot but Dr. Salim makes it a breeze. He's nice, professional, and efficient!
Dr Salim is very knowlegable and professional. The most painless dentist experience one may have! Their office is chic and superb!
Excellent care. Dr. Salim gives peace of mind - utmost up-to-date practice - proactive approach to dental health - very friendly and attentive office.
Great experience, walked me through the process and scheduled follow on sessions. -Brian
Great Doctor and staff, lovely environment.
A happy dentist and staff. I was very comfortable and I don't like being at a dentist office, very pleasant made me laugh and smile. ???????? I'm definitely sticking with this dentist !! Thank you!
Great dentist. Terrible wait times though
Always a pleasure coming to this office. Everyone is professional and accommodating
Very professional and pleasant visit. Dr.Salim is always straightforward, doesn't lie and tell you how it is, doesn't make you do fillings for no reason. Always does an tremendous job! Highly recommended. Been going to this dentist for 10 years now.
Dr. Salim and his assistant, Ashley, we're both professional and friendly. I actually had a nice experience at the dentist!
I enjoyed it. He's funny and didn't make me feel awful that I've been negligent...working too much and not setting my regular checkups. I already rebooked!
After just one visit, I found my new dentist for life! It's rare to find a dentist who does cleanings themselves. He's thorough, attentive and considerate by explaining his recommendations without pushing an unnecessary procedure.
Loved the people in this office as well as the dentist! They were so great and understanding. Great conversation, bed side manner, as well as conversation... well as much as i could hear while they sat over my mouth and drilled and stuff.
One of the most compassionate dentists!
Truly a fantastic experience. Highly recommended.
Was very efficient and timely. Staff was great, the hygienist was very thorough. Dr. Salim was very pleasant, excellent bedside manner and extremely informative.
I was very happy with my pain free experience! Thank you for always making coming to the dentist so easy!
It was a pleasure. The doctor was kind and courteous and his staff was lovely and professional. Thank you all. I really appreciate it.
Best dentist ever.
Dr. Salim had an anazing bedside manner and incredibly detailed exam/cleaning. Best dentist experience I have ever had. Would highly highly recommend him as a dentist.
He is a great doctor, he explains everything and takes his time. VERY friendly.
Front desk staff were organized and professional, and Dr Salim was knowledgeable and friendly. Comfortable with the care I received and will probably continue going here in the future.
Doctor was excellent and so nice. Assistant was very lovely as well.
Dr Salim is not only the greatest dentist but the greatest doctor I've ever been to. He is efficient, kind, thoughtful, and great! I've converted at least a dozen of my friends and family to his practice.
I had major dental problems, , my front teeth were discolored and small due to tetracycline and also very sensitive due to repetitive unsuccessful bleaching . After spent months searching for the right dentist online ,I finally found Dr Salim, I believed that he was the right dentist for me after all the rave reviews and magazine articles I had read, in addition to his impressive resume, I thought this would be a pretty good indication of the standard I would receive. As I walked into the charming staff and office I could tell immediately that I was only going to get the best and I was right. I already had the veneers option in mind as per other dentists advised ,Dr Salim proposed treating and covering each tooth affected to mask the underlying tetracycline stain before applying the veneers and explained that teeth that have been stained by tetracycline are more difficult to mask with veneers, especially when they are badly discoloured. unlike other dentists that prefer to etch the tooth and apply the veneer directly . With regards to problems, I honestly haven’t had any, although I’m sure there are people out there who have. I can quite honestly say I have had no pain or problems from the veneers. As to be expected, it just takes a little time to get used to them. However, they feel lovely and slim and smooth and there is nothing obvious about them that make them look as though they are not my own natural teeth and they do not look like piano keys as I’ve seen on some celebrities ! they look GREAT! Dr Salim has an incredible eye for detail. he has given me the perfect smile yet looking so natural, my smile fools everyone, even the experts ! but more importantly I’m very delighted to finally bust the myth of bad British teeth as I am originally from UK .
This was my second visit to this office, Dr.Salim and his team have been consistently fantastic in every way. I appreciate the time this team takes to talk through my dental health and provide sound advice. Everyone is so polite, caring and understanding my needs. Very clean and friendly atmosphere and convenient to my work and didn't have to wait weeks for an appointment. My dental issue was a fractured tooth that gave me so much pain especially after a root canal performed by a previous dentist. I was advised by Dr.Salim to put a crown on.The entire process took 2 visits, it was very fast and streamlined .Dr.Salim was thorough and efficient (a rare combination, and one that's always appreciated when a drill is inside your mouth!). Yesterday I had my crown put on so I’m officially a princess :) Overall it was an incredibly pleasant experience from start to finish. Thank you for making me feel welcome and completely stress free. I couldn't be happier for choosing your practice! I also recommend this office for all frightened of going to the dentist persons like me. This team will quell your fears and do an amazing job!!!
I love Dr. Salim BUT his office staff is horrendous. They claim that their dentists' schedules are not reflected on ZocDoc, so when you make appointments, they just cancel them and call you to reschedule. Isn't the whole point of ZocDoc being able to schedule something quickly online???
Honestly, I couldn't have been more impressed. No wait time, professional, and informative. Dr. Salim was very knowledgeable and approachable, and was able to walk me through each step of my procedure in order for ALL of my questions to be answered. (When does that happen in New York City???) It was definitely reassuring to finally find such a GREAT dentist, (and to actually feel as if he cares about my dental health as much as I do). Friendly, organized and helpful staff- amazing hygienist- and brilliant dentist with great bedside manners... I would definitely recommend Dr. Salim and his staff to anyone. (Oh, and he's super funny too.)
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Helped me get quick answers, manage pain, and get next steps set up. Great guy
Overall, I had a great experience! The staff was very friendly, and the dental hygienist was very communicative and managed expectations accordingly. As for Dr. Salim, he seemed very knowledgeable. I was looking for a 2nd opinion since a previous dentist appeared to be recommending more work than was necessary & conveying a false sense of urgency. Dr. Salim was honest about which ones were necessary vs. which ones were optional or could wait. The practice has a handful of different specialties, so you can get most of your dental needs addressed without having to hop around different locations. Can't comment on the cleaning, procedures, etc. since I haven't experienced any of those at this practice yet, but based on my first experience, I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Went for a cleaning and checkup. The office was small but clean and everyone in the office was extremely kind. The nurse who conducted my cleaning was extremely helpful, patient, and thorough. Dr. Salim was wonderful as well. I was so impressed with the amount of time he dedicated to me. Most doctors are in and out in a flash, but Dr. Salim took the time to explain everything to me and discuss specifics. Overall I was extremely satisfied with my visit and will be going back! Highly recommend Dr. Salim and his team.
Dr. Salim is great. I recommend him.
I had such a great first visit with Dr. Salem. I would say it was the best dentist experience I've ever had! He was very knowledgeable and Jennifer, the hygienist, seemed very thorough. He took his time to explain and give examples of what was going on in my situation. By the time I left, everything made so much sense around the issue I was experiencing - something my previous dentist had not picked up on. I am optimistic about continuing with the treatment plan he has recommended for me. So grateful I found him - thanks to ZocDoc and all the rave reviews!
I had a great experience today for my first visit to Dr. Joseph Salim. The office staff was VERY professional. My appointment was at 12:30 PM and I anticipated filling out new patient paperwork so I got there a little early. The paperwork was explained very clearly and they even took a photo of me so that they could "try and remember everyone as best they can." I thought this was a nice touch and made the experience personal. I finished my paperwork and handed it in right at 12:30. And just like that, they were ready for me. My dental assistant was very sweet and made sure to take extra care if I had any sensitivity. The cleaning was very thorough and quite fast (not rushed). When Dr. Salim came in, he made me feel as though he actually cared about my dental health and about me as a new patient. I've never had a dentist speak to me for that long and take the extra time to explain exactly what he saw when he looked at my teeth. Overall, I was 100% pleased with this visit and I highly recommend him and the staff.
Dr. Salim was very thorough and great personality! Everyone in the office were really nice and welcoming. Highly recommend.
He was very professional, and offered great advice.
Really took his time to explain everything in great detail. Great attitude and presence. Even the staff were remarkable.
Long wait time well past my appt. The cleaning (done by the nurse) was very rough. They use a water pik instead of a metal scraper which caused a lot of bleeding (maybe due to poor aim?) Doctor was helpful and friendly
This was my first visit, so my experience with Dr.Salim is limited so far - but he inspired confidence, I was very pleased with his explanations of the treatment I would need, and I will certainly return.
Dr. Salim has been our family dentist for many years and we are so very happy to have found a dentist that is both caring and incredibly proficient in his work. We could not be happier with the level of service. I highly recommend Dr. Salim and Sutton Place Dental!
Everyone from the front desk receptionist to the lady who cleaned my teeth, to the Dentist were excellent, nice and efficient. Thank you Sutton Place Dental Associates!
The visit with Dr. Salim was great! I honestly have never had such a good experience with a dentist. He was very genuine and took his time answering all of my questions (which I had a lot). Hes a nice guy, but also energetic, and passionate about what he does. It was my first time visiting him as I just recently moved from California and he was nice enough to give me a complimentary whitening kit. I highly, highly recommend going and seeing him!!
Dr. Salim and his office were great, as always. They are flexible with there scheduling and even saw me earlier than my appointment because I asked. The front desk has also been immensely helpful in dealing with my constant issues with insurance and claims.
Dr. Salim was extremely personal with an excellent bedside manner. The dental assistant, Nancy, who actually performed my cleaning, was very careful and gentle.
This dentist cancelled on me three times in a row. Very unprofessional about it. After the third time I told his secretary that I was going to have to switch dentists and instead of apologizing she just said fine and hung up. He was nice when I met him but I am too busy to be cancelled on, with minimal notice, three times in a row!
Great cleaning as well!!
Very nice ,professional yet personal and welcoming .
Dr. Salim is always friendly and efficient during my visit.
He is very nice and professional and so is the staff!! highly raccomended
Excellent, would certainly recommend him.
The hygienist didn't seem to do a very thorough cleaning job based on my prior dental cleaning experiences at other offices. It seemed very cursory. Dr. Salim is very personable but spent less than 30 seconds physically examining my teeth. He only knew that I had a cavity based on the x-rays taken before the cleaning, not actually looking at my teeth. He didn't even comment on my chipped tooth or exposed wisdom teeth, which I found very odd. I think I would rather see someone else in the future who pays more attention to detail.
He was great! Really helpful and easy to talk too. I would highly recommend seeing him.
~30 minute wait. Denise was kind, and the cleaning was painless. Dr. Salim was friendly and v. informative--gave interesting explanations. Good visit!
Extremely thorough. Felt at ease with his level of expertise. He spent a great deal of time with me which I really appreciate. Office was clean, professional and they have the most high tech equipment.
I always enjoy going to the dentist now that I see Dr. Salim. He is very knowledgeable about the latest treatment / procedure options. Very mindful about my time constraints. He and his staff are extremely courtious and efficient. They also have exam chairs that have a back massage feature. I highly recommend him and his team!
His office is very modern and clean. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Salim was talkative and a good explainer. I hate going to the dentist, but this was as pleasant as it gets.
Did not address the issue of my visit but rather was looking to make money on the rest of my teeth that had no problem
Despite having to go to the des rides office, it's a delight. Great dentists and staff. Clean facility.
Great dentist, his staff and hygienists are my fave. Definitely recommend.
Dr. Salim's team is patient, gentle, and professional. The cleaning wasn't rushed (like it can feel at other offices), which immediately put me at ease. It was also painless and gentle. Afterward, Dr. Salim talked to me about my teeth. He showed me my xrays and some great visualizations on his iPad. He was friendly, honest, and educational. I feel confident in trusting his expertise. I do have a bit of a wait (3 weeks) for follow up work, but I'm hoping for a cancellation before then. Thank you Dr. Salim & team!
Dr. Salim is incredibly friendly and professional. I love going to the dentist now! Everyone from the receptionists to the dental assistants have been pleasant and nice to interact with. I would highly recommend this place!
Excellent professional, he and his assistants are all incredibly attentive and reassuring. I went in with a chipped tooth and very nervous about the work that may need to be done, they gave me all the option in a way that was very easy to understand, and I walked out with my tooth well repaired. Thanks!
Helped me in a bind and very flexible, and wonderful office.... Zocdoc has yet to disappoint with doctors
He was awesome. Super friendly, well-aware of my dental needs and just a nice person to have as a doctor. I wish my insurance was better because my co-pay is frightening but c'est la vie!
I was very happy with both Dr Salim and his staff. I received my cleaning by the dental hygienist who was very gentle but thorough with me. Dr Salim then took the time to go through my X-rays and explain the plan of care to me. I left his office very happy!
Really great, super through cleaning. Very gentle dental hygenist as well!
Great doctor, didn't feel judged at all and felt very comfortable and at home in my last minute emergency appointment
The office is exceptionally clean, professional, and welcoming. The dental hygienist that helped me was also wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Salim and this practice to anyone!
The Dr. was great, the cleaning seemed really basic and not that intensive...it was far simpler than what I have had in the past.
The cleaning and x-ray technician was very nice and lectured me for a while on the importance of flossing. Dr. Salim was great - he really took the time to explain exactly what he found in his examination of my teeth, and even used a mirror to show me specific things, something I've never experienced with a dentist in the past. I'll definitely be going back.
Amazing offices, sweet people, antithesis of every dentist experience I have EVER experienced.
Really liked Dr. Salim, though was not a huge fan of the hygenist who cleaned my teeth.
It was good and my teeth feel extra clean and Dr. Salim is very knowledgeable on what is important for your dental health.
Staff and facility are excellent and Dr. Salim was informative and friendly.
This was my first visit with Dr. Salim. He was very nice and thorough and made me feel at ease. His staff was super friendly and the office was clean and up to date
The dental assistant did the cleaning but she was very kind and patient. The cleaning was thorough. The doctor was extremely nice and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I would definitely recommend him.
Amazing cleaning and super nice. Loved the entire practice.
Great experience. Very friendly staff, accomodated me running late! Very high tech equipment and a nice office! Best dentist experience I've had!
Very professional, meticulous and efficient visit.
At 6pm on Friday evening, when you think that everyone would be wanting to start the weekend- the Dr, assistant and front office staff were friendly and extremely helpful. They took the time to answer all my questions and explain everythign in great detail.
First-time patient, lovely ladies at front desk, delightful hygienist, painless, easy, quick, no need for me to keep dentist shopping!
Excellent dentist. Very informative!
I like his work,he is very professional , he did excellent job,i highly recommend him !
I despise going to the dentist but Dr. Joseph Salim made it a pleasure. Barely waited to be seen, had my teeth cleaned and xrays done as soon as i got to the room. He explained everything I needed to have done in detail...Would highly recommend Dr. Joseph Salim to anyone of my friends!
This office is always great, I actually called to see if they could squeeze me in sooner and they did. Always a pleasure.
If you are coming in for a cleaning, expect the dental hygienist to do all the work. I only saw the doctor for a brief minute once all the cleaning work was done. Positives: -Zero wait time -Clean Office -New Equipment Cons -Barely had a chance to speak with the doctor -Below average cleaning job
Very thorough in explaining things. Very clean office and attentive staff. I felt like a million bucks after leaving the office with just a routine teeth cleaning.
I liked the doctor, but his office staff was not very friendly. I don't know if I'd recommend the practice to a friend.
Very professional and personal touch. I am not usually a fan of dentists but found his bedside manner to be one of the best I have seen. If you are reading this then look no further.
Excellent care. Very friendly staff and well informed recommendations from Dr. Salim
I had an okay visit. It was my first time there so I really didn't know what to expect. The assistant did my entire cleaning which I've never had happened before. The cleaning was fine, but I found it strange that the actual dentist didn't come in until everything was finished to just check for cavities. I was in and out within an hour that was definitely a plus!
First time. Good experience.
Amazing! I've spent 8 years in NYC trying to find a dentist I loved, and finally the day has arrived. His style is absolutely fantastic; he explains thoroughly, provides options, and then assumes your intelligence to make the right choice without rushing...absolutely incredible!
The office was very nice and clean! They had very new equipment and they were very thorough with my cleaning. I would highly recomend Dr. Salim to anyone.
I had an appt for a cavity and he went and shaved my tooth down for a crown without having me aware of the change, which i would of said NO and did not have me sign the consent until afterwards.
I am not the biggest fan of dentists, but he was very gentle and seemed to really care about my teeth. Office was very clean, nice decor, the whole 9. I would recommended to anyone!
Very nice office, was in right away. The hygienist was excellent and Dr. Salim was very thorough and nice.
Very friendly, explains procedures clearly.
I think it was wonderful experience. Joseph Salim heard and addressed my problem and expectations of my visit very patiently.
It was such a great experience!! I never liked to go to the dentist but from now on i wont feel this way anymore. Dr Joseph and his team are so polite and welcoming. I would highly recommend!!!
