Verified Patient Reviews
Very thorough and technically proficient. Everyone was friendly and informative!
Karen was great. Professional, straightforward and very through
The female dentist who did my cleaning was professional, friendly and informative. I've had many teeth cleaning & can tell if dentist is trying to scare me by upselling more dental work. She was on par with facts and genuinely care about my receding gum line. I was seen in minutes & entire staff was mindful of getting me taken care of right away so I can make my concert. Also very helpful with my insurance. I'd certainly would come back !
Loved it. Everyone is always super friendly, and they even gave me some hand lotion as a gift to keep my hands smooth during the winter.
Always a pleasant experience at this office. The front desk staff is super nice and always friendly and accommodating. I had a cleaning and everything pretty standard but anytime I've gone I've left feeling taken care of and really understanding what I need to do in terms of my dental health.
Very nice folks in the office, clean facilities, I feel taken care of when I go there!
Very professional and explained everything
The staff was super friendly and everything was organized. Everything always runs smoothly with my appointments here.
Timely, was seen right away. However she tried to get me to do orthodontic work, which I didn't feel was appropriate.
The people at the reception are always friendly , helpful and informative . I get treated by different dentist most of the time but they are all professional and made me feel at ease. The hygienists are also patient and nice . Would recommend this place
Although they asked me to rescheduled twice, the service was very good. Karen is very knowledgeable and made me aware of the severity of my cavity. She seems very skilled and also very personable.
very accommodating and efficient.
Excellent dentist, great bedside manner. dr kang knows her stuff. she very meticulous. her office is spotless. the office crew is helpful and polite. the only dentist I completely trust. l've been going to her for a couple of years now and I feel lucky to have found her. the only thing is that she now works only two or three times a week so I have to make sure I make my appointment when she is in office.
Fastest, most efficient, and friendliest service I have ever had at a dentist.
Very sweet, loved my teeth and does one hell of a cleaning. Highly remcommened!
It was too much money and too long to wait for a partial. Was not happy with discussion on money.
I go here for cleanings once every six months during my lunch break. Hygienists are friendly and thorough, and gave me recommendations to prevent tartar buildup. Dentist Karen comes in at the end for around 5 minutes, looks around, says everything looks good, done! Efficient, in and out in 40 minutes. Friendly reception too.
I didn't feel like she really cared about my dental health but rather getting me in and out relatively fast or making money on whatever procedure may need to be done. It was strange how she left the room and said I could talk to "management" about pricing then a guy came out which felt like bartering for dental services. One of my molar teeth in the back is missing so he was trying to really sell me on replacing it but was telling me the insurance would cover a certain amount but then told me it would be the same price even if I didn't have insurance. I asked him how detrimental to my dental health it would be if I just didn't get it replace which he couldn't really answer. I ended up getting a cavity filled and two slight chips on my front teeth fixed - I noticed one actually wasn't completely done so I need to go back. When I went to check out the guy who I guess is "management" just kept telling me how good of a deal I got with the discounts he gave me which is weird to hear from the dentist even if it's true. As I was paying the dentist walked past and uttered some word of frustration - not sure what it was directed at but either way I found it unprofessional.
Karen was awesome, barely any wait time at all, she filled two cavities for me and ing lad to say I didn't feel a thing!
The only downside to the office visit was the terrifying eyebrow waxing and threading graphics that plastered the entire front of her office building. I walked by the door several times convinced my dentist could not possibly be in such a disreputable building!
I saw Dr. Chin. She's so warm and welcoming. Alleviates all anxieties that one might experience when visiting a dental office. Young gem. I'm actually not dreading heading back next week for my fillings...
One of the few dentists that made my visit pleasant.
Great. I just started with this dentist in 2014 and I found them on every encounter: efficient, caring, & knowledgable.
Was frustrated by not getting called to let me know dentist was running late. The review indicated significant need for interventions, which did not align with review by family dentist 3 months ago. Felt the treatment plan was overly aggressive, and didn't help me prioritize immediate vs medium term needs.
Agree with other reviews that I've read - nice/clean offices (four flights up), great hygienists (quick, gentle), x-rays (annoying but necessary if you haven't done them in a while). Dr. Kang introduced herself before she started her exam - nice! She explained (and showed me) each of the areas that she found issues - I admittedly have some so it was expected. I am actually looking forward to going back - how crazy is that??
Zoc Doc didnt sync up too well with their office. Waited to fill out paper work there. They called to confirm a couple times about the appointment. Easy to get to location. Cleaning went quick. Will be going back for future visits.
Aside from the building being a little sketchy and the elevator slow, the office is very clean. The receptionist is nice and the hygienist was very sweet and meticulous. Dr. Kang, who later looked at my teeth and x-rays after the hygienist cleaned my teeth, was very professional but seems just a bit rushed. She recommended a few procedures and after I asked a few questions, she said she would get the manager to explain the costs, at which point she was already walking out of the exam room. I had a few more questions I wanted to ask, but aside from that, I would recommend this place! The manager took his time to explain the costs of the procedures, and was really approachable. I'll be going back for a chipped-tooth filling in a few weeks.
I've been to this office for a total of 4 or 5 times. They're usually pretty fast, except for my first visit for which they took longer. Nice and easy to talk to. There's more than one doctor in this office- I was seen by 2 of them for different procedures. Overall good. Would recommend to anyone.
Great visit. From the front desk to Dr. Kang, the entire staff was professional and friendly. I'd recommend them to anyone. The only part I didn't enjoy was that I filled out all my ZocDoc materials online and then they had me refill them out at the office. I didn't want to be rude so I just did (it was my first visit). Great team. 10/10
The office is very clean and professional and the service was great. Highly recommended!
I prefer a more personal approach from my dentist. Poor follow-up. Didnt really feel that they care either way. Different dentist for every appointment.
Although my first visit was good, and I got a thorough cleaning y her assistant. But the second visit seemed rushed especially the cleaning part which she did it herself.
Really friendly receptionists and assistants. Dr. Kang was friendly, too. Not pushy with treatments though prices seem a tad high--will have to look into that.
shes amazing. her staff is amazing def would recommend her. shes very gentle..
The building looked sketchy and I hesitated to go in. But I trusted the ratings I saw on ZocDoc and proceeded into the office, which ended up being very clean and bright. Its hard to say if Dr Kang was great or not after one visit, but I am going back for additional procedures.
The visit felt very rushed. When I came in, I heard horrenous screaming from another patient in one of the rooms. I don't think I've heard such terror at a dentist's office. I also did not like that all of the cleaning was done by the hygenist. Dr. Kang came in very briefly at the end to check up on the work and to suggest for me to replace my molars with crowns. X-rays were taken, but I don't think she took any time to look at them since she kept picking at one area of my teeth that had prior work done. I did not get a toothbrush, floss or toothpaste goodie bag that I normally get at from my other dentists.
staff were all very professional. doctor was nice and very patient in explaining everything.
Dr. Kang was good. She was very thorough and honest, which I can appreciate. However, they tend to focus on the cosmetic side of things and push for the unnecessary and pricey procedures. On a positive, she’s very fast with fillings, and truly cares about your teeth. She's a solid dentist.
Everything went fine on my visit. The office was nice, clean and orderly. The appointment went well and everything felt comfortable.
Not bad at all, but the assistant appeared rather new or inexperienced.
Just had my first appointment...the office is spotless. The staff is friendly and helpful and try to put you at ease. The background music is soothing. Most importantly, the doctor is responsive and so far has been thorough. I have my next appointment this week.
She was nice and knowledgeable. I recommend her to prospective patients.
The outside of the building was a bit sketchy, but once I stepped off the elevator the office was very clean and felt contemporary. Staff and Dr. Kang were great. I will certainly be back.
Very nice, and very pro
Dr. Kang and her staff were great. My teeth felt great when I left :)
Dr. Kang was extremely kind and made me feel very comfortable. She gave a step by step explanation with the procedure I needed. The staff was professional and also very kind. I would book my future appointments here.
The office was very spa-like! Which was really nice. Staff was very courteous and polite. Dr. Kang seemed much more interested in the cosmetic look and enhancement of my teeth then the health of my teeth. My cleaning was very poor. Will not book another appt.
Dr. Kang, her dental assistant and the front desk person were all very friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, prompt and respectful. I would recommend her to any friend and family member. After being in NYC 15 mos now I am glad to have found a dentist I can trust.
I would readily recommend Dr. Kang to anyone!
She was wonderful! Will definitely be back for a cleaning.
Dr. Kang was so nice and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how well she took care me and my teeth.
She was really nice and patient. Everyone there was attentive and considerate. I loved it.
Her staff is very kind and courteous. I found out that due to a crown not being placed on my route canal, I would have to lose that tooth and Dr. Kang showed more concern and distraught than me. That proved to me that she is right where she needs to be facilitating and caring for the health of our teeth.
Nice dentist, I would go back to see her again.
Dr. Kang fixed a few fillings that a previous dentist had done poorly and they look amazing. She was very candid about the health of my teeth and suggested ways to better improve them. I will definitely be going back to her for all of my dental needs.
