She is great! No wait time and all around great service!
No wait, very quick and easy cleaning. Dr. Etkina is so professional and sweet!
She's the best dentist I've had. She caring, honest and good at what she does.
Friendly, knowledgeable, thorough. Fantastic.
She was on point so sweet
She has gentle hands and a soft demeanor. I’m tired of being poked and made to bleed etc my rough dentists. She was also non judgmental of my bad habits.
Best experience I've had with a dentist in at least 10 years. Quickly in and out for an examination (including annual x-rays) and cleaning. Doctor's office had all the paperwork I'd completed online in hand and ready for signature on arrival; no wait time to be seen. Couldn't have been better!
She's always quick and the cleaning was perfect
Dr Etkina is a wonderful dentist, i feel very comfortable with her , my anxiety tends to come out Little it just me after a few minutes then im ok . I have to say dr etkina explain everything she doing . I bring my son n daughter to her. I will recommend dr etkina to anyone .
She is a perfect combination of profesionalism, kindness, and knowledge. She is very kind also with kids.
Very professional and kind. Will be going back for my 6 month cleaning!
She discusses options, factoring in cost as an element in coming to a decision.
Dr. Etkina always sees me right away and always does a wonderful job. Highly recommended!
The doctor is always thorough, patient and very careful not to hurt me. I have a very sensitive mouth and I’m a very nervous patient and the doc is simply the best I’ve had!
Liliya was very professional, knowledgeable and patient. Overall I had a great experience and will be back.
Courteous, attentive, professional. Wonderful experience.
Dr. Etkina is personable, direct, thorough and very professional.
I have been going to Dr. Liliya for over 4 years now. She is extremely professional and always know how to take care of her patients. She has always given me good feedback and has given her sincere advice when it comes to making a decision for a procedure. I also appreciate the fact that living in NY, she is most reasonable dentist when it comes to fees and charges.
It's always a pleasure (as much as it can be going to a dentist) to come to dr. Etkina's office. She always does a quick and excellent job! She never suggest to do anything that's unessasary just to make money! Very fair and honest specialist. Highly recommended. I've been a patient of hers for the past 3years.
. How many people look forward to going a dentist ? I don't think many do , In fact , they may dread it . I am one of those that looks forward to going to a dentist whose name is Dr. Etkina . She is so professional, friendly, thorough ,kind , thoughtful, skillful , flexible, experienced, intelligent, caring , knowledgable .... I could go on and on with positive adjectives describing her. Her staff is great too! Marina , her Dental Assistant , who I have known for quite a while , is a keeper as well . She does so much! Rachel , at the front desk , who I just met for the first time, greeted me with smiles and before I left, made sure that i had my prescription filled at my drugstore . I actually didn't want to leave Dr. Etkina and her staff today. I will , however, return.
Going again :)
Dr. Etkina was wonderful. She was thorough, and took the time to explain x-rays to me.
Dr Etkina possesses one great quality many doctors don't: integrity. I can't praise and thank her enough for recommending me the exact amount of treatment that is best for me, not for her short-term bottom line. Because of this, I have and will be coming back for all my dentistry needs.
Dr. Etkina is the best dentist ever!
Always incredibly professional with no messing around.
Always very good
I was recommended to Dr. Etkina by a friend, who absolutely adores her and now I can see why. Dr. Etkina was very friendly, personable and kind. My first visit was great! I needed to have a tooth extracted and it was done right away. No pain or discomfort. Another doctor did the procedure (sorry can't recall his name), but he was friendly and humorous. He told everything he was going to do as he did it. Even the administrative, X-ray and dental assistants were very kind and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Liliya Etkina to anyone who is in need of a professional and quality dentist!
She was great and helped me thoroughly! Great Dentist
I am a very nervous patient with a highly sensitive mouth. Dr. Etkina was patient, caring and thorough. I really can't say enough good things about her. This was my 2nd 6-month visit and I will continue to come back.
Dr etkina is a very kind patience dentist , i woukd recommed her to my family n friends
She a wonderful dentist and only one I trust I have very bad anxiety and she has a lot of patience and understanding.
I am always pleased by there service !
I showed up 15 minutes early and waited less than five minutes to be seen. Dr. Etkina is wonderful, and she cleans my teeth better than any other dentist ever has. There are gaps in my teeth that I didn't even know existed.
Yes it was verry nice n Quick i will be back
This dentist is the best dentist I have ever been to not only for her prefessionalusm and knowledge, but also for her "bedside" manner. I experienced a near-fatal accident (hit by a car while biking) a few months ago and the last time she saw me I was a bit of a mess. I was greeted with a sincere hug and gratitude for my presence. I was raised in a small town and Dr. Etkina makes me feel as if I am back in my little town of origin with the friendly family dentist (of 30 years). Oh, and no cavities again;) HIGHLY recommend.
The visit was good and the doctor has patience's with her patience. The dentist office makes you feel comfortable.i recommend it to family n friends ct
Dr Etkina is professional and has a comfortable manner with patients. Highly recommended.
Great dentist all around!
It was good overall.
Liliya and her staff are great. I'm always seen at the time of my appointment. She's attentive and patient.
Doctor Etkina is wonderful. My visit was very pleasant- unexpectedly quiet, even tranquil! I definitely recommend Dr. Etkina and love the simplicity and professionalism of her and her staff!
She was concise and professional with her work and she had a good manner with children.It was quick and everything was done in a snap.
Absolutely recommend. I'm so happy I've found the dentist I will go to for the rest of my time in NY.
She's very good on her job my daughters love to go there because the doctor make them feel not pain.
The dentist was nice and respectful throughout my cleaning.
Dr.Etkina came across as a true professional and a caring person. I had a thorough cleaning, and she explained everything to me clearly with each step. The office is clean, and the staff very pleasant.
I was very disappointed with my fist visit with Dr. Etkina. I came in for a consultation and referral. I was seen right away by Dr. Etkina. As soon as I got into the room she asked me about any conditions or allergies I had and proceeded to stick her hands in my mouth without even introducing herself. I had to stop her and ask her if she was the doctor and she replied "yes" and proceeded to dig her fingers through my mouth with out telling me why or what she was doing. She didn't have any definite answers to give me regarding my teeth. She sprayed water and dug around my mouth for I don't know what. I had water all over my face and neck as if it was her first time using that tool. As a registered nurse I found her professional bed side manner very poor from the beginning to the end.
I went in for a basic cleaning and x-ray, and Dr. Etkina was friendly and informative throughout the entire appointment. She did a beautiful job cleaning my teeth and was patient with me when I need to adjust myself or fidget a little. The receptionist was also really nice. I will certainly be going back to her for my next routine cleaning.
She is great! Very thorough and pleasant.
Great experience! She saw me before my scheduled appointment time, was very helpful, considerate, nice and really did a lot more than I expected. I'll be back next week for a follow-up :)
Dr. Etkina is great. She is so easy to talk to and doesn't just talk over you like most other doctors.
My visit was pleasant as a usual.
I had a deep cleaning done today and did the right bottom side , dr Etkina was very patience and concern about her patience and making sure you are ok . I have very bad aniexty when it comes to dentists but when I meet dr etkina my aniexty started to get less . I recommend this dentist to anyone.
It is my second visit to doctor Etkina, and I am absolutely happy! I had the 10.15 am appointment and I was taken in right away when I arrived. Staff is very pleasant and everything is done quickly and efficiently. Doctor is professional, very friendly. She answered all my questions and did a great job on cleaning. I will be returning for my routine visits. Very happy.
Everything was perfect. Lillya Etkina was very professional. Thanks!
She is a great dentist, that really cares.
She is the best! Dr. Etkina will never do unnecessary job! She cares about long run effect for patients well being. Highly recommend her to everyone!
This work was difficult but doctor made it proffesionaly. For me was easy and comfortably. Thanks!
I thought she was very sweet and kind. I was nervous about completing my procedure but she was very understanding and nuturing. Office was clean and her staff was efficient. 5 star service!
She's fantastic. Personable and professional.
The office is right by the E train. Convenient location! I visited for an annual cleaning. Doctor Etkina has good bedside manner and takes care of my teeth professionally and gives me good advice. Staff is friendly.
Staff & DDS were all SO nice & professional.
I had a very pleasant experience at her office. She is very nice and knowledgeable.
This is my second visit with Dr. Etkina and I was once again completely satisfied with the professionalism, services and overall experience. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Quite frankly I am usually nervous about dentists but Dr.Etkina was an excellent doctor. The visit was quick yet surprisingly thorough (had an annual Dental exam with x-rays and a cleaning done in under an hour) which I was happy about. She addressed any concerns I had and provided me with great feedback. Would definitely recommend this doctor.
Always have a great experience at office. Liliya Etkina, DDS is a very kind and patient professional. She always makes me feel welcomed and at ease at any dental procedure.
As always, she is one of the best DDS out there!
The doctor was great! I had the first appointment (at 10.15 am) and was taken in at 10.10, so no wait time at all! She was very professional, and kind, she showed me my x-rays and explained everything in detail. The treatment (the filing) was painless, and quick. You can feel the doctor is experienced. Overall, my visit was very pleasant. Will definitely recommend the doctor to my friends, and come back for future services.
Very polite and professional
Dr. Etkina is always a pleasure to visit!
My visit with Dr. Liliya Etkina, DDS was quiet enjoyable. I arrived a few minutes early to my schedule appointment, I was greeted with a smile. The representative requested my information, I signed a few documents and by the time I finished handing over the documents to the representative, the doctor was prepared to see me. The procedure was painless and comfortable. The doctor made me feel comfortable by asking questions. Once I was complete my procedure, the doctor referred me to another specialist and I was done! The entire visit was less than my 1 hour lunch break. I will definitely recommend her to my friends, family and co-workers.
I am a very nervous patient with an extremely sensitive mouth. I saw Dr. Etkina for the first time today and selected her based on her reviews of being a very caring and gentle dentist. I have to say she was 100% just that. She was wonderful, gentle, straight forward and got the job done. She didn't make me feel embarrassed for being scared (and I'm almost 50). I recommend her 10000%!!
Dr. Etkina is great have been seeing her for a couple of years. Unfortunately her front desk person is very extremely rude!. I prefer using zocdoc application to not say a word to one of her receptionist.
The visit went well , answer all my questions that I was concerned about . Liliya etkina DDs is a very good dentist with patience's and she listen to you and she explains things to you . Ct
Yesterday was my first time going to the dentist in about 4 years. This doctor made me feel worry-free and she was so sweet and friendly. Her staff was very pleasant too. I felt very comfortable. I think it's also a plus that we share the same birthday :) I will definitely be going back!
Very punctual and professional. Will only recomend what you need.
Great dentist, great staff, easy appointment process and no wait time. I had the ability to fill out my paperwork online. Great bedside manner. I have a toddler who is terrified of dentist. She got my daughter to sit on the chair and relax. Very thorough and explains every step. She was patient and eagerly answered all our questions.
She was very nice and did a great job at cleaning my teeth! She took her time and the office was very clean.
I felt she is experienced and she knows what she does
The doctor Etkina is very professional, and actually tries to cause the least discomfort possible to the patient. I am never afraid to go to this dentist.
She is one of the best dentist I ever had in my life she's friendly and so professional
It was very comfortable I really like her she keeps it straight and forward with you
Liliya etkina,DDs is a wonderful dentist made my daughter feel comfortable and had patients. Thank you would recommend her to my family n friends.
She is great
Pleasant bedside manner. Clear with her explanation of my 'condition'. Used to go to a dentist in Manhattan. This was a bit more than half of what I had paid my Manhattan dentist.
She patiently answered a lot questions I had about my teeth. She took time to do a very thorough cleaning. The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful also. Really liked this practice.
It was a pleasure going to this practice. She took her time and made sure I was comfortable with my procedure
My visit to Liliya was amazing the best dentist I've had in my life I would recommend anybody to go here great and super professional service. ????????
Excellent place. Clean, quiet, professional, and quick. The dentist was thorough in addressing all my concerns and questions.
She is a great Doctor, I will return and recommend other people to her.
She was very professional and the best cleaning I ever had!
Answered all my questions, just great experience overall.
Fantastic dentist who clearly cares tremendously for her patients. I will recommend to all my friends.
She is the best!
Dr. Etkina and her staff are top-notch! Always feel comfortable in her office, and they get the job done perfectly. Thank you!
She is a very cari g and excellent Doctor.
Dr etkina is professional and to the point. I'll be following up with her for basic dental care. Her office is clean and operated in an organized, if a bit mechanical manner. For me that's not an issue, as I'd like to get out as quickly as possible. Would recommend.
I have been seeing Dr. Etkina for about three years. I am a 40 year-old who works as counselor to the addicted so I know what kindness, professionalism and compassion should look like as I practice it myself in my career. Dr. Etkina sets the standard for excellence that remains unparalleled in comparison to any experience I have ever had with a dentist. I have had a root canal, an extraction, cavities filled and a crown in addition to the biannual check ups and cleanings. Dr. Etkina HS the best interest of her patient in mind at all times. Currently, I have issues that are complex due to injuries sustained after being struck by a car including a jaw that has been dislocated and/or out of alignment rendering me unable to chew. The doctor and I are working together to determine what can be done to correct the issues. An oral surgeon is available in her office periodically throughout the month, so his consult is made beyond convenient. I cannot sing Dr. Etkina's praises loud enough she represents her trade in an unmatched manner. It goes without saying that I would recommend her highly to anyone seeking dental attention.
Exceptionally professional, warm and friendly chair-side manner, clean office, attentive staff. Office hours are exactly where I need them - in the work day and the office is a 10 min walk from my office.
I came a bit earlier than my appointment time. Dr. Etkina took me in right away . If you have read my previous reviews of Dr. Etkina and her staff , you will see that they have always been extremely positive. That is because I am always treated with concern and outstanding care from the moment I walk in the door. If you are searching for a wonderful dentist ,then you should go to Dr. Etkina .
It is so nice having such a great dentist right in the neighborhood. She is so willing to work with you and understands the different needs and considerations.
I will be back, The staff was courteous, the office was clean, and the care was fantastic!
I had a horrible experience a few years ago at the dentist so I was skeptical at first but after meeting the doctor all my fears were gone. She is excellent, her office is excellent, staff and all. Highly highly recommend her.
Excellent, she is my favorite, the office is super clean, the environment is just perfect. The best dentist ever
It had been a long time since I have seen a dentist, due to finances. I recently got insurance that covers dental visits. I took advantage of the opportunity; a friend introduced me to Liliya and she was very friendly and professional; serious points with me, so I came back at a later date scheduled an appointment for a cleaning, I was a bit nervous but Liliya put me at ease with her polite attitude and my mouth is all the more grateful for it, she explained what she was going to do, made a few suggestions for me and now I have found myself a great dentist to visit a regular basis. Thank you Lilya and your staff for being so outstandingly awesome. See you soon.
Awesome sauce. The team there is great!
She is AWESOME!!!!
She is a super dentist...Hardworking and so professional...Overcame my fear of dentists with her...
Bright and clean office with a super friendly staff. I only see Dr. Etkina twice a year and she always remembers me and anything that we have discussed. I never feel judged or chastised. Very great 'chairside manner."
I've been going to Dr. Etkina for a couple years now. She's great -- explains everything, listens attentively, saved a tooth with a bad cavity, has the modern sensor-driven x-rays (not old uncomfortable film ones), and always sees me right away. I don't live or work in Long Island City, but it's worth the trip. Highly recommended.
Liliya was great and took me exactly at my appointment. My wife goes to her and loves her as well.
i did not need any sweet air... as i found the Doctor was sweet , caring, attentive and professional
Dr. Etkina provided excellent service with a fantastic attitude. I will definitely return.
Have been going here for years and they are ALWAYS above and beyond great.
Dr Liliya etkina was very good treating my 14 yr old daughter first time visit , explain everything that has to be done step by step . I would recommend her to my family n friends . Dr etkina was very kind nice polite and patience and understanding .
Dr Liliya etkina was very nice and polite and listen to what you have to say ,she took X-ray and told me exactly what needs to be done . Since I have aniexty when it comes to dealing with taken a tooth out or more ,she recommend I see a oral surgeon where they can put me to sleep for a few . I was very happy with her and she treat me nice .
This is a wonderful dentist. Straightforward, kind, and direct. Clean and modern office. My appointment even started early!
I had an emergency crown reseating & a cleaning appt - both easily done via zocdoc. The office is clean, the staff is friendly, knowledged and professional. I was exceptionally pleased with both appts and will be coming back..
Loved her and her staff. Excellent state of the art equipment. Very thorough. Explained things as she went along and was very concerned about my comfort.
She is an amazing dentist and a person. I have never had a ny doctor spend as much time as she did with me listening to and addressing all my concerns. I wish i had found het sooner. :)
Our emergency was handled immediately and the doctor was super attentive.
Best dentist always!
She is the best dentist ever!! Very professional and attending. Her dental office is a little far for me and there are many dentists much closer from my place and they take my insurance , but I only trust her and keep going to her office. Such an amazing dentist!
pense que iba a tardar mucho tiempo en esperar y que me atendiera pero fue lo contrario todo fue bastante rapido
Liliya and her team work very efficiently. She also took her time to answer all my questions!
She was wonderful. Very polite and courteous. I'll be going through her for furture dental appointments.
TOP NOTCH DOC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite couldn't recommend her more
Dr. Etkina is one of the best dentists I have ever had work on my teeth. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, courteous. Never rushed, always given the best care. Thanks. Tatyana K.
I picked her because she was listed on my insurance and she was right around the corner from my home. The office was immaculate, the front desk was friendly and attentive and the doctor and technician were kind, efficient and comforting to deal with.
Very professional facility and friendly and efficient support staff. Dr. Etkina was very through took time to explain everything and answered any questions with an clear response. She did the cleaning herself and I felt that it was very through without any unnecessary pain. Would highly recommend, much better than the dentist I previously saw in manhattan!
I haven't been to a dentist in many years... I just always hated them! But my first visit went great. She was extremely nice and caring! Going back for more!
I am trying to remember who told me about Dr. Etkina . I want to go and thank that person . I am so thrilled that she is my dentist . In fact, she is now the dentist that my family and close friends go to see. She is a treasure ! Her staff is wonderful too! She took care of me right away and was very thorough.She is an expert in her field. That is so valuable ! What I consider the " icing on the cake " ,is her obvious concern for her patients.
Dr. Etkina always takes great care of me and I know she does the same with her other patients. Besides being a highly skillful dentist , she is also an amazingly kind human being . Who looks forward to going to a dentist ? Well I do , when I make an appointment with Dr. Etkina.
The doctor and her staff were very nice.
No wait, open to discuss options and not pushy or trying to force you into unnecessary treatments. Great experience overall!
Dr. Etkina is a rare find ! She is a treasure ! This dentist is a wonderful human being and a outstanding dentist. She truly cares about her patients and does a great job taking care of them. I know that, because now members of my family also go to her and truly appreciate her and her skills. She is the best !
Dr. Etkina is an amazing dentist. I am a long time patient of hers. She is patient, very thorough and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommended her.
She was amazing! She has a very welcoming personality and made my daughter feel very comfortable. She's looking forward to coming back.
She's great with kids and my family loves her :)
Great visit, great doctor.
Dr Etkina was concerned, gentle and truthful. When I needed a root canal she said I would do better going to a specialist - that if I chose to do it w/ her, it would take a series of visits, etc. She gave me 3 referrals. The office wasn't crowded or rushed. She put a temporary filling in at my request. It was refreshing and relieving that she was calm, the atmosphere was calm: she wasn't pushy or in a hurry and the office wasn't overcrowded/overbooked like so many dentists I've been to in the area.
She is an incredible dentist, soft hands and compassionate.
Very professional directly to the business. Thank you very much
she's wonderful very professional i recommend her
The oral surgeon for my tooth extraction was running a bit late. Dr Etkina cared that we had to wait a little bit. I love her, such good personality for a dentist. Very calm and cool. Listens to your concerns and takes them seriously. Please try her, she is building up patients and deserves all she can handle.
She was delightful and gentle. I have really sensitive gums and she made this visit painless! I will definitely recommend her.
very good very professional
Very professional. Clearly explains procedure and options. Very nice staff.
Great personality, very professional and the office is very clean. New technology.
Nice Staff, Nice Doctor. Very polite and Efficient. Accurate appointment times (no long waiting). Not crowded. Very gentle on teeth, Great for children!
Lovely, personable, takes the right amount of time but doesn't keep you longer than needed. Highly recommend.
She was very patient with all my questions. She explained everything to me, even with the prices. She understood that I was concerned about prices and if the insurance covers everything.
All good, just had to wait 20 mins to be seen. Great cleaning
Very kind and professional. Dra. Liliya knows perfectly how to treat her pacients. I already book my next appoinment with her.
The visit was excellent and her advice was very helpful
Lovely and professional, as always! The only dentist I've been happy to see.
She will only recommend what is needed, not more. Very satisfied with her explanation and rapid action!
outstanding and excellent!
Dr. Etkina was simply awesome
I live in Midtown, Manhattan, take just 3 minutes to get there with E train. 1) Best price EVER; 2) Best Professional: 3) Best Warm, lovely care: 4) Best Team 5) Just fell home in care of a ANGEL: THANKS SO VERY MUCH ANGELS!!!!!
The office is extremely clean, which is the most important thing for me when looking for a dentist. Furthermore, the staff and the doctor are very polite, considerate and accommodating. The doctor was very kind and asked if I was well throughout the procedure. I would highly recommend this office and doctor and I will be back. Thank you!
She's very nice and professional. Very thorough but gentle during the cleaning. Her office is nice and clean. Staff is ver friendly as well.
The office is super clean, the staff are incredibly nice and the doctor is very friendly and professional. I am very pleased with the service I received.
Great all around. I've been with her since junior high school in her other office and still the same awesome woman.
She is very knowledgeable and she explain every details. Thanks.
She's the best!
Knowledgeable, informative and gentle. The dentist I trust and not even afraid of :)
It was great, looking forward to the next visit.
Great dentist office, and Dr. Etkina is always ready right on time. Billing is always smooth. Overall, great!
I abosulety love Dr.Etkina. She's VERY kind and takes her time when she takes care of you. I never leave her office with a from on my face ;)
Excellent, quick, and efficient as always. Dr.Etkina saw me immediately for an emergency follow-up visit. Her bedside manner is amazing as she often asked if I was okay. Her assistant was nice as well and even held my hand while I received the novacaibe shot for my mouth.
Excellent customer service and bedside manner. I was seen as soon as walked in the office which is very clean, with high-tech equipment. Dr. Lilya Etkina seemed very detailed and thorough in analyzing my X-rays and coming up with possible solutions. Best of all, my follow-up appointment is scheduled for a week from my first visit. I liked everything about this office except one minor thing. Please use bigger bibs and glasses on your patients. Water was sprayed on my face and shirt during my cleaning. My shirt took a while to dry. Still recommend her services though.
I couldn't recommend her more! She is fabulous, kind, professional, intelligent, a superb clinician!
Dr. Etkina is great. Plus, her office has all the latest equipment (e.g. film-less x-rays), they're always on time, and they're close to the subway.
Very friendly and professional. Recommended to all my family and friends.
Good service, will be back
Such an amazing dentist!!!! I did cleaning,filling, put the crown and removed 4 wisdom teeth at her office-and she was very caring!!! Such a great professional! The doc who really cares about patients !! And she works for the result!!! And the result was awesome)) def recommend her!! Thanks for everything Liliya Etkina!!:))
She is great.
I visited Dr Etkin's office multiple times. Dr and staff shows highly professional manners. Visits to dental offices could be very stressful.She has this " magic touch "and many years of experience which is grately appreciated. My case is complicated and requires multiple visits. On a first visit detailed treatment plan was discussed. I've had already few follow up visits, and looking forward to see her again.
It was super fast. I haven't been avail to find a dentist that I was comfortable with but this is it. I found it. she was avail to answer all my questions. Im not running away from my dentist anymore ??.
My usual dentist retired last year, so I decided to give this place a try for my bi-annual checkup. Dr.Etkina is very friendly and professional. The office is new-looking and clean, and the staff courteous. I was taken in almost right away, and the cleaning was very thorough. Overall experience was very positive, and comfortable - especially considering my general fear of dentists. Will definitely return for future checkups!
Dr. Etkina is the bet dentist I've ever been to. She is kind, skilled, intelligent, gentle, and trustworthy. I recommend her without reservation! She will not recommend an expensive procedure that is not necessary just to make a profit like another dentist I went to! She is fantastic!
Facility is beautiful & clean. Not the most professional dentist - I had to go to another dentist (Dr Mazrouk on Vernon Blvd) because I didn't trust her opinion after my appt ended with her terribly...& rightly so based on the other dentists feedback.
We are new to the area and are happy to have found a good dentist. We don't have any real dental issues, so I can't speak to that, but we all received great cleanings.
Excellent, no upsell pressure.
Love love love this dental office! It's clean and everyone is friendly and efficient. Dr. Etkina only sees me about every six months for my cleanings, and she still remembers me. Great!
Very professional. She is a real Dentist and cares about her patients!!!!! :-D
I had a excellent visit and I would highly recommend her
My teeth have never felt so clean, and I get them cleaned every six months. This cleaning was by far the most thorough. Weeks later I'm feeling gaps in my teeth that I didn't realize were there before. Sounds gross, but other dental hygienists just never cleaned so well.
The visit was very good. She is very professional about her work. She does not let you leave until you get a good cleaning!!!!!. ;)
The visit was very good!!!! Explained to me exactly what needed to be done and she did not let me leave until the job was done! Great dentist. I feel comfortable with her.
Great dentist! Definitely recommend!
Dr. Etkina is a very kind, experienced dentist who approaches her patients with a humble and conservative approach. She is a wonderful professional. She took me on time, was caring and explained and addressed all of my questions. I finished my appointment making appointments for both my children. Thank you. I truly enjoyed meeting her.
She is very knowledgeable, highly professional, and has very light touch.
It was great. She is very professional and I feel like she has so much experience.
I am very happy with my beautiful new teeth!
The place on the outside looks a little scary but inside it is immaculate - every piece of equipment is brand new. She is great. Taken me In early both visits. Fast and professional
Very polite, efficient, courteous and knowledgable. I very much enjoyed my dental visit and the information provided. I plan on using this office from now on.
Excellent dentist. Really gentle but thorough cleaning. Does not try to upsell you stuff that dentists usually do. Cannot recommend enough.
Dr. Etnika made me feel at ease, she understood my questions and concerns and took enough time to answer them.
Dr. Etkina is not only a very knowledgeable and professional dentist, but also a very nice person: she will always make sure that you don't feel pain / feel minimum discomfort during the treatment process. She does a great job! Very happy I found her!
She is the best, very nice and friendly.
Very kind and helpful staff who always explain charges and insurance coverage before proceeding! Much appreciated.
This doctor is amazing. She is kind, knowledgeable, gentle and truly cares about your well being and the best interest of the patient. The office is immaculate and the other staff friendly. I am so grateful I found her and would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a good dentist.
She is absolutely wonderful !!!! She took care of me right away and solved my dental problem . She is also compassionate and highly intelligent . I actually enjoyed my visit .
The first time I came I was alone for a cleaning. It was quick but thorough. Everyone was very nice. The place is small and intimate, clean and professional. I was so satisfied with the visit that I brought my 7 year old son there the next week.
I have been going to her for years and i'm still here. =)
She is very professional and courteous. Having sensitive teeth, she was very gentle to the point I didn't feel any pain
I had a dental emergency and was desperate to see a good dentist ,as soon as possible. Well my wish came true . In fact , it got better than I had wished, I actually saw a GREAT dentist Not only is she an expert in her field but she is also a wonderful human being ! She is kind, considerate,patient, and truly a compassionate person. Added to that , she is also highly skillful and intelligent ! Thanks to her , I can smile now . Her front desk staff person and her dental assistant are also outstanding ! What a marvelous team !!! I normally drive upstate NY to see a wonderful dentist but I was not able to do so at that time. Due to my emergency situation, I went to ZocDoc and lucked up :) Yay!!!
I had a great experience, and my teeth are feeling as clean as can be. I'll be back in 6 months!
She was nice, but something felt off about the appointment. Everything looked to be in order, the right equipment, the staff... but it just didn't all fit and come together.
Great doctor,highly recommended !!
Dr. Etkina, is always very caring, compassionate and professional. I never have to wait for hours. She takes care of me as scheduled. From the moment she did my first dental work, I was very pleased to the extend that I have multiple implants done at her office. I truly recommend her as your primary dentist.
She was so kind and sweet! Gentle and put my nerves at ease- I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a good Dentist!
I feel she is excellent and I would recommend her to others.
Office is clean, professional, and friendly. I'm always seen right away and out in less than an hour.
Super gentle with the teeth cleaning and my teeth felt cleaner than they have in years. Better than my last dentist, and I go twice a year!
She was just wonderful human being in all instances!!!!
The doctor's office was clean and with modern equipment. The staff was friendly and fast. The doctor explained everything (not just the tooth but the insurance), and she saved my tooth (a tricky filling, rather than getting a root canal). I recommend her and plan to keep going back.
Liliya was very good and the place is very clean.
It was great as it could be. I had some fillings done, and I don't like the needles. It was still overall a positive experience and I'd recommend her dental office.
Friendly, Courteous and Professional
The visit was great. I feel very comfortable at this office. Liliya Etkina has provided me with the best dental experience.
Professional staff,very nice clean office. The doctor is very patient and caring. I leave knowing my teeth are in the best care.
A comfortable and warm experience; a clean atmosphere. I highly recommend her services.
Dr. Etkina was very professional and helpful.
Very good would use again
She's great. Very patient and kind. The cleaning was thorough. Office is modern and clean.
Great doctor, highly recommended to any person. Clean facility great staff and very professional.
I went in with severe tooth-pain I recently applied for insurance and was told I would be able to get a partial root canal done until my insurance kicked in which was a little over a month later although the staff and doctor was friendly, I'm very upset that I paid out of pocket and was told when my insurance finally kicked in it wasn't accepted. They knew what insurance I had and told me it wouldn't be an issue months later I'm left with a hole in my tooth and now insurance won't accept the work that was previously done. If I had known I would have just went to the Emergency room. I had no pain meds and I'm still left with work that needs to be done and more pain than before
She makes you feel very much at ease in a way that instills a great deal of confidence. She has a very light touch and communicates in a clear and direct manner.
A pleasant experience and great results. I will be back again in 6 months.
She was very kind and gentle. I hadn't been to a dentist in a long time and she made the experience very positive!!
I've had a very good experience with DR Etkina.
Very friendly dentist! She makes an unpleasant experience bearable... I highly recommend if you're in the LIC area.
Dr. Etkina was very kind and easy to work with. She was quick and made every possible effort to accommodate me. I highly recommend her as a dentist.
Dr. Etkina was kind, professional, comforting, gentle and one of the best experiences I have ever had at the dentist. I highly recommend her and intend on going back for all my needs. The office is spotless and everything appears to be quite new.
Dr Etkina was very kind and thorough. Great first day experience.
It was a great experience being seen by Dr. Etkina! Her office is really clean, and she was very nice, as were her assistant and receptionist. I highly recommend her!
This is not my first visit to Dr Etkina office; I can assure you that each time both the staff and Dr. Etkina was very professional and toke the time be make my visits quick, pleasant and professional. Dr.Etkina takes her time and is very patient with you. In a nutshell YES I would recommend Dr. Etkina professional care to my friends and family.
Excellent! The stuff,office and she all were amazing! super friendly and professional. I'm so glad that I found this place!
I came in for a root canal. After an examination, she told me that this root canal would be completed two parts. She drilled a hole in my tooth and then protected it with flling. She told me that this was a very temproary solution and that I would need to come back. First problem, she wouldn't let me make a second appointment to finish the tooth. I tried on numerous occasions to finish my root canal because pieces of the filling were coming out and she refused to book a second appointment. I had to find a new dentist because there was A HOLE IN MY TOOTH. I reported her to NYC Consumer Reports. Horrible Dentist
Related comfortable feeling and a pleasant doctor!
I am very happy with the job done by Dr. Etkina. I was taken in right away. The appointment did not take a lot of time, and the result is my blinding smile! I am happy!
Dr. Etkina is great with kids. My son has been seeing her since he was 4 and he is now 11. My husband and I alsi see her. Fantastic.
Very happy to have met Dr. Etkina. She is very professional and helpful. Her staff was also very friendly and attentive. I would recommend her to all my friends.
Dr. Etkina was great! She personally cleaned my teeth and focused on two problems areas of mine. I had great results and she also gave me sincere advice not to have some elective work done. I found her honest assessment to be very refreshing.
Dr. Etkina was very friendly and thorough. I'm definitely coming back to this practice.
The office is clean, the staff is friendly, and the location is perfect. Highly recommended.
It was a very pleasant visit. I was taken in right away. The staff and the dentist were very polite and nice. The dentist was very professional and knowledgeable. She did only what it was needed to be done and didn't try to sell me more. Dr. Etkina explained everything very clearly what she did and why she suggest to do or not to do the procedure. She looks in a long run patient's benefit rather than making money out of patient without caring the outcome in the future. Definitely coming back!
Great dentist. Most caring dentist I've ever visited. I wish more dentists were as kind and caring as her
She's very nice and understanding.

Doctor Etkina is friendly, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Her staff was pleasant and helpful as well.
