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.)

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.

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.

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

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!!

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!

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.

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!
