I had a great experience as soon as I walked through the door. Dr. Rubin came out into the reception area and greeted me personally which is a first. He also performed by entire exam, including cleaning my teeth, personally. Idon't think I've ever had the actual dentist clean my teeth. He took the time to show me before and after pictures and specifically pointed out my problem areas (recession) and how I can prevent or avoid further damage. He also gave me a lesson on how to properly brush and floss - which apparently I've been doing incorrectly my entire life because no other dentist ever showed me the right way! He was professional and fair. He did not try to make me purchase any extra services. He personally inspected my insurance plan to ensure that my cleaning was within plan which I very much appreciated so I won't get any surprise bills. As an added bonus, I was able to choose either listening to music or choosing what channel I wanted to watch on TV while he performed the cleaning to ease my nerves. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would highly recommend. Clean, friendly office and a personal, worthwhile dentist exam.

Dr. Rubin is phenomenal! I had to see him for a handful of appointments and he was always professional, thorough and gentle. I'm someone who has always dreaded going to the Dentist but he is truly fantastic. I've never had towait more than a few minutes and the staff in its entirety just goes above and beyond. I've already recommended over 5 - 10 coworkers to him!

This was my initial visit with Dr. Rubin. He is very personable and takes his time explaining things to his patients. I normally find myself unable to relax when seeing the dentist however today was the opposite. I would recommend him to others and visit again.

Have always been deathly afraid of the dentist. Dr. Rubin changed that for me. He is the absolute best I have ever been to; explains everything he is doing/about to do to prevent anxiety. He's thorough, patient and above all else, comforting. I'd recommend him to absolutely anyone.

Very professional and easy to interact with; I felt pretty comfortable the entire visit. I liked his treatment approach and left his office feeling confident that I had a clear understanding of my dental situation and the work that needs tobe done. Most importantly he took his time to explain a great deal of information to me in detail.

I love this guy! He makes a dental cleaning as painless as possible. Everything is explained clearly and in a friendly and relaxed manner, with no judgment whatsoever ("We're human."). He chats about life, asks about me and my husband, allwhile giving a professional, thorough, and un-rushed cleaning and exam. LGBT-friendly, too.

Dr. Rubin is warm, considerate and very thorough, making sure he examines every aspect of your dental health carefully and completely. The office is very nice, clean, comfortable and quite spacious for Manhattan. Dr. Rubin explains what he'sdoing (and why) thoughtfully and without condescension and seems very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He listens respectfully and does not make you feel rushed in the slightest - but he is still prompt and efficient. He is probably the best dentist I've ever been to and I will certainly be back!

I had a great experience with Dr. Rubin. He has excellent bedside manner - I normally hate the dentist but I felt very comfortable throughout the appointment. He gave me excellent feedback on how to better take care of my teethand was very professional. I also really enjoyed the environment - the building was beautiful and the office was clean. The entire staff was so friendly and accommodating. I've been looking for a dentist in the city for a while and have finally found a great one. I will definitely be going back.

I don't really like going to doctors or the dentist but Dr. Josh makes it much easier. He is friendly, relaxed, and explains everything before he does it. Even with all the strange dental equipment there are no surprises. I will definitely see him again.

From the moment Dr. Rubin greeted me it felt like I was family. I received the most thorough cleaning and exam I've had and he assured my comfort at every step. Dr. Rubin went out of his way to make sureI felt okay as he cleaned the most sensitive parts of my mouth, even applying a desensitizing gel to my gums that I have not had other dentists use. He personally did the entire cleaning and exam and was not at all rushed -- it felt as though my well-being was the focus of his day. He even took the time to demonstrate proper brushing techniques. I am actually looking forward to going back in 6 months!
