I'm a new patient who typically avoids going to the dentist for cleanings, so I really appreciated that everyone was so friendly, competent, and efficient (while still being thorough). I was in a time crunch before the end of the year,and they were super flexible and understanding about getting my follow-up in while I was still in their office. Definitely would recommend!

Dr Mason is incredible! I have been to several of the top dentists in NYC and Dr Mason was far superior. She is incredibly skilled actually gifted in her field. I had complex work done. It was painless and perfect. Unlikewith other dentists where I have to go back countless times for adjustments, Dr Mason did her work flawlessly. She is also trustworthy and her calm manner makes for a relaxing experience - it is clear you are in good hands from minute one. Her non-nonsense was so appreciated - the first dentist that didnt try to sell me a cosmetic service or a fancier more expensive version of what I needed. So refreshing and such a relief to have her as a reliable resource for my dental care. I am not one to rave and I highly recommend her. I only wish all my doctors were this competent, sincere and fairly priced. Her staff are great too and her offices are lovely. I give her a 12 out of 10.

Dr. Mason was the first dentist that actually took the time to explain and help me understand why it is important for my bite to be corrected before she could fix my smile. All the frustration and pain I have hadthroughout the years was because no one fixed my bite which was actually the the root of my problems. She is a master of her craft. Thank you Dr. Mason I finally have the amazing smile I have always wanted.

Dr. Mason and her staff are extremely professional, competent and honest. I was told by another dentist that I needed a root canal and came to Dr. Mason for a second opinion. She did a small procedure on my tooth andthe pain I was having resolved over the next few days. Needless to say, the root canal was never needed. I subsequently came to the office for a routine cleaning and check up. The hygienist did an amazing job. She was thorough and taught me what I needed to do at home to keep my gums and teeth healthy. Overall, I had an excellent experience.

This was a pretty awful experience. I went in to get one crown fixed, Dr. Mason found out I was covered by two insurances, and pressured me to get veneers on all of my front teeth (my teeth don't look funnyat all). She pressured me so much that I started crying. She was relentless and I will never go back. She should be ashamed of herself.

Dr Kara Mason needs to get a new scheduling assistant. This was the 2nd or 3rd time that I had scheduled an appointment with her through zocdoc, only to be called back next day that she will not be able tosee me at the scheduled time. Her calendar on this website doesn't seem to be updated.

Very strange appointment-- walked into the room in stilettos and skinny jeans, didn't say hello or introduce herself (I was a new patient). Thought my sealants were fillings. Difficult to take seriously professionally.

I had a wonderful experience at Dr Mason's office. From Arelis' warm and professional welcome, to Iris' thorough and educational cleaning I felt at ease. Dr Mason was friendly and to the point and I look forward to returning. The dentaloffice was also beautifully decorated and the tools of the trade were state of the art. It was clear that Dr Mason cares about the entire experience. Highly recommended!
