All around a really great experience. Thanks!
The best dentist visit of my life! Like most people I dread dentist appointments, which is why I procrastinated on scheduling one despite the fact that I was 99% sure I had my first cavity. Thankfully, after today's appointment I'm actually excited to go back! The front desk was super helpful and welcoming during scheduling and day of. Julia, the dental hygienist was incredible during the cleaning! She checked in constantly to make sure I wasn't in any pain and explained what she was doing each step of the way. Dr. Mats was the kindest dentist I've ever been to and was thorough in explaining my situation and the plan of action. I left after a painless appointment knowing I was in the best hands for the root canal (yep, that cavity I ignored) next week. I definitely recommend this office and Dr. Mats!
Loved it! I was seen right away and everyone I spoke to were friendly and careful. I came back for a filling and was very happy with the treatment that I received. The front desk is nice and efficient. i will be coming back.
I don't think I've felt so comfortable at the dentist since I last saw my childhood doctor. Thank you, team! <3
I normally dont write reviews unless its well deserved...so here I go. I lost a filling on Tuesday morning and frantically looked for a dentist that would take me before the long holiday weekend. After a few calls I found someone who would take on Tuesday an entire week later. Tuesday evening I started to experience some pain and decided to use Zocdoc as I previously had an ok experience with. I Scheduled an appointment for Wednesday @ 10:15am, I will still a bit skeptical as the email confirmation I received said my appointment was pending. At 7:49 am on Wednesday I received an email... MY APPOINTMENT was Confirmed!!! It only got better from there, I was called on time and was able to have my filling done, all in under 1 hour. Unfortunately I don't recall the doctors name but SHE WAS AMAZING! as well as the entire staff at Gramercy Smile. My only regret is that I didnt use them sooner.
Very streamline and professional. Very thorough with the cleaning. 10/10
Honestly the best dentist I've ever been to. Great at explaining stuff. My cleaning and filling replacement were easy and quick. (The dental hygienist was a revelation.) A++++ would highly recommend.
Great experience! The team was nice and helpful.
I have been coming to Dr Mats for over 10 years, before she had her own practice. She has saved my teeth and my smile and I refuse to see anyone else!
The Dental hygienist I saw was so nice and very gentle
Straight, to the point. Easy to talk to and incredibly nice.
This was really one of the best dentist appointments I have ever had. I honestly learned so much and laughed I swear it was like no dentist appointment I have ever had. definitely love this dentist and office.
I was told every step along the way, what was happening and what would happen next. Didn't feel like a ragdoll that was just being instructed to do things. She also provided me pros and cons of of the choices facing me instead of just saying, you should do x. Going to the dentist doesn't have to be a stressful, confusing experience!
Very good experience!
Extremely friendly and organized staff that are thorough without being long-winded
Dr. Mats did a wonderful job explaining things to me. Highly recommend.
I ended up seeing a different dentist Dr Sonja and not Dr Marina. Very fast and efficient visit.
My hygenist was great - she just did the cleaning and got it over with quickly and efficiently - no beating around the bush. I really appreciated itand would recommend her to anyone !
I went in for a cleaning, the hygienist was fantastic, and Dr. Mats was very knowledgeable and helpful. My only complaints are: the wait time was quite long even with an appointment (which they had to reschedule on me), and that when I finally got through with the hygienist, the doctor came and went in such a flash, she was definitely way too rushed. All in all though, good experience.
I had a very pleasant experience here. My hygienist, Elaina, was awesome, and everyone else was very friendly.
Everyone was super nice and helpful! I went in for a cleaning and was completely finished 45 minutes after my appointment time. Clean, cute office, great vibe in general, probably the most seamless dentist/doctor visit I have ever had!
Great practice. Very nice people. Never have to wait. Have had both a cleaning and fillings replaced. Give good information and also call and leave reminders for follow-up appointments.
Very nice and attentive staff. Was seen as soon as I arrived!
My visit was fantastic! Everyone who worked with me from the x-ray technician to the hygienist to the doctor were really friendly and knowledgable. It was a very comfortable and thorough dentist experience. I highly recommend this place and these people.
Great, professional, quick, courteous
First time at Gramercy Smiles, Dr Mats was great. The hygienist was top notch, one of the quickest, easiest, pain-free cleaning's I've had!
Really friendly staff and the cleaning was thorough but not painful! Highly recommend this office!
Office was nice. The wait time was longer than expected considering I had an appointment (~45 minutes). Office staff was pushy and not helpful. Appointment was short and sweet. Dr Mats was good, but wouldn't go back.
The practice called me to reschedule, but the doctor was great!
Great experience with this Dentist. Completely painless filling.
All brand new equipment, state of the art. Very friendly, in and out quick!
I loved it. The doctors were very attentive.
I got there early and they saw me right away! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I told them I was fearful and they made me feel so comfortable and really went through details about my health with me. Love them!
Fantastic dentist. Converted from just a walk-in to my main dental hygienist in NYC. Reception was particularly friendly :)
Great staff, modern and clean office, knowledgeable and friendly dentist.
Great place and super friendly!
Loved the whole staff. All very sweet and gentle touch. Highly recommend.
Great service, honest doctor, amazing experience.
I was greeted immediately upon arrival with a warm smile and a happy receptionist. My appointment was quick, but I didn't feel rushed or hurried. My technician took their time and was also very friendly. Once I saw the the doctor she was really thorough. Spoke to me and explained everything that was going on. She was warm and welcome and was very professional.
This office is always busy, and for good reason everyone here is super friendly and do an excellent job. I've even had to get fillings here before and i didn't feel a thing. I use to be so scared of the dentist but now i don't mind going. Thanks guys!!
From the dentist to the hygienist to the receptionists, all the staff members were very friendly. Highly recommend.
I didn't have to wait and she gave me honest advice. Many times I feel like dentists try to push pricey procedures and this was not the case with this dentist.
Staff is amazing. Very friendly and helped me with all my questions. Felt peace of mind and "squeaky clean" when all was done.
She was a good doctor. Really take time to answer all my questions.
Very friendly and relatable, made me feel like I understood what was going on with my teeth and willing to explain anything I didn't understand. Her whole staff communicates well and are very helpful.
Great office staff and dental team as well!
I have not been to the dentist in 3 years so I was a little nervous about being reprimanded. The hygienist, x-ray tech, and doctor were great! They were informative and walked me through every step. I especially liked how the doctor said down and reviewed each shot of my x-rays with me. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. I had to schedule a new appointment to have a cavity filled and she calculated how much my insurance would cover and how much I would owe out of pocket. Great clean, high tech facility and I was taken in right away.
She was great, answered all my questions, was very friendly and I can say that I almost even had fun at the dentist office, haha. Staff was helpful and super nice. This will be my regular spot from now on.
I strongly dislike the dentist and everyone in this office made it as enjoyable as a dental cleaning can be. Dr. Mats was straightforward, nice and speedy. Will definitely go back
Great facilities (new, clean) but you may only want to go here for routine check-ups / procedures. They had no idea how to identify what was causing a pain in my back molars, and didn't give me any helpful recommendations for specialists who could diagnose me.
Dr. Sonia was such a pleasure!!
Professional, and straight to the point with their diagnosis.
She was very attentive and friendly. She helped me figure out a plane and then explained her thinking behind her recommendations. All in all she made me feel very comfortable and I enjoyed my visit.
I was seen very quickly. Both the hygienist and the dentist were friendly and professional, took time to explain everything to me.
I've been avoiding going to the dentist for years, and finally bit the bullet and scheduled a consultation visit at Gramercy Smiles. Wasn't aware that a consultation did not include a cleaning with the hygienist, but they stayed open later and a hygienist was able to squeeze me in before they closed. Marina had a great bedside manner, was friendly, and didn't scold me too much for putting off the dentist for so long. Facilities are clean. Highly recommend.
With Dr. Mats and her colleagues, I actually don't mind, dare I say like, going to the Dentist, something that I haven't enjoyed since I had my first teeth. They make you feel comfortable and they don't make me feel bad about not taking care of my teeth as well as I should. Everyone is really friendly. I look forward to returning!
So great. Very approachable and professional - definitely the best dental experience I have ever had!
Professional ,knowledgeable ,honest, and the staff makes you feel as if they have known you for years.
The admin team is quite professional too - they assess true timing of appt so expectations are realistic and it helps you plan your day properly
This is my 3rd time visiting this office and my experience has always been pleasant. I arrived a few minutes late for my appointment but was taken to the doctor right away upon my arrival. Dr Marina was through cleaning my teeth while being very friendly and ensuring I did not feel any pain or discomfort. The staff took the time to properly exam my teeth, answer my questions, and make appropriate recommendations. I highly recommend this venue and staff. Superb!
Dr. Mats was very kind and thorough. I really enjoyed that she took the time to explain everything to me and even gave me a mirror to point out things she was seeing and recommending. The whole process was efficient and timely and I was seen right away.
It was my first time and I loved the office! The office was very professional, and doctor was extremely nice and patient.
I think I've found my dentist in NYC. Highly recommended.
It was my first appointment at Gramercy Smiles. Reception desk people were very pleasant and professional. Scheduled for cleaning but I could also get the check up done. Dental hygienist was very nice and Dr. Mats was wonderful.
Very nice and thorough. The dentist and receptionist were very informative and helpful about the procedure and my questions. Recommend !
Awesome, the staff are very professional!
Got in very quick! They were polite and made me feel comfortable. Would definitely go back.
Very professional, would go again
Very down to earth. Everyone was friendly, from the front desk to the hygienist Elena to Dr. Mats herself. I left the office with practical knowledge on how to care for my teeth, and have started to floss because of my visit. I used to hate going to the dentist, but now I can't wait to go back.
They were all extremely nice and made sure you were comfortable. For some reason, my time for every step was incredibly long but I would still return.
She was great as was the hygienist who cleaned my teeth. Very nice and kept me verbally posted on everything she was doing. Really made me a part of the process and feel knowledgable.
Very thorough and helpful. No wait time.
I would strongly recommend!!!
Clean office, patient and kind hygienists/assistants, expert opinions. Sad to have to find somewhere else after moving!
So pleasant, staff is so helpful, really knowledgable-- best move ever.
Very sweet and professional team. They are direct with consultative advice, but also friendly and understanding. No insurance issues, no overselling, and the most pain-free cleaning I've ever had. Also the dental gift pack is sicknasty. I'll be back!
Being an ultimate skeptic I was concerned there were too many great reviews. But they were all right, the place was very clean and the staff thorough and extremely nice! I even got an appointment same day
I had a great visit! The staff was friendly and professional, respected my time, and did an excellent job.
LOVE THIS DENTIST!
Everyone in the office is professional and very polite. Very pleased.
It was my first visit to the office for a check up/cleaning. The place looks sparkly clean, the staff is super nice and friendly, and Dr. Mats is very informative and polite. It was a very nice first experience and I plan on going back.
The atmosphere is great; very relaxing, laid back vibe and everyone who works there is super nice. When I went today, my phone didn't have any service and I wanted to listen to music while I was getting a filling. Once the dentist realized I had no service, she gave me her personal iPhone so I could listen to Pandora- awesome gesture and made the experience a game changer.
Just moved to NY and looking for a new dentist. I was very impressed and loved how honest Adrienne was. She told me what work I needed to do immediately and what I could hold off on which I really appreciated. Would definetly recommend!
My visits with her are always great. I don't like to see any other dentist. going to the dentist makes me really anxious, and she always makes me feel really comfortable.
They were all very nice, professional and attentive. Their office was also very nice too. The only issue was the price, though that could just be NYC prices.
Everyone was very nice and she gave me great advice.
I actually saw a different doctor- but she was just as wonderful as Dr. Mats. Everyone at Gramercy Smiles is so knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Matts and Koster are great. Had a lot of dental work to be done after not having seen a dentist for a few years and they made having even a root canal not-that-bad.
this was about as good as a trip to the dentist could be.
Super friendly professional staff
After only ever having two cavities at the age of 35, this dentist told me she found eight and prompted me to book another appointment to get them all drilled. I asked if I could get a second opinion and she said she would fetch a colleague at the same practice... When I said I would like outside opinion things got very awkward. I went to see another dentist and they confirmed I had no cavities.
She is amazing! I will certainly be coming again. Very kind, understanding and professional all at the same time. Really helped recommend ways to improve my dental health in the longer term- not just a in and out visit.
Everything was very well organized. This was my first visit and it couldn't have gone better. I walked in and had to fill out the usual forms for a first time patient. Once I filled out the forms I was immediately taken to the back. I had x-rays taken and got a cleaning. I was never waiting more than a couple minutes for the next step in the process. Extremely happy with my visit and would recommend to friends.
I was very impressed with how friendly the team was and how ready they were with the paper work and the insurance coverage authorized. The dental hygienist was nice as was the x-ray technician. Dr Mats was very personal, funny, and on-point with key questions. I will return.
I found Dr. Mats on ZocDoc, and made an appointment with her based on the positive reviews I read about her practice here (I was especially encouraged by Sheena O.'s comments) - and I completely agree. From the moment I walked in to Gramercy Smiles, every person on Dr. Mats staff was friendly, helpful and patient (I was just there for a cleaning and consultation, but I tend to be a bit nervous during any dental work.) After having a cleaning by the most patient (and very gentle) dental hygienist I have ever been to - Dr. Mats took the time to kindly explain what she was seeing in her examination, and worked with me to plan the next steps necessary for my continued dental care. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.
Thoroughly satisfied with my appointment and service. Highly recommended.
I've found my new dentist!
Gorgeous office! I went in for a cleaning and I cannot remember my hygenist's name but she was wonderful and very informative! The front desk staff, especially Shelly (I believe is her name) were so welcoming and polite. Then Dr. Koster gave me an exam and she was amazing! She basically gave me a whole lesson on my teeth and what exactly is going on with each tooth and how/why they need to be fixed. I have not been to the Dentist in quite some time but I know I've never had such a great experience, eventhough my teeth are a bit disatrous- which is my own fault. Highly recommend!!
In my past experience, the dentist would do the cleaning, but in this case, she sends her dental hygenist to do it. Theres more comfort and ease of the mind that an actual dentist is taking care of you. I probably saw her for a total of 2 minutes, once at the beginning and then at the end for a very brief consult. I admit, I get anxious at the dentist because my threshold for pain is low, but by far, this was perhaps the most painful cleaning I've ever experienced and at the end of it I felt my teeth were not as clean as they have been in the past. I'm finding a new dentist.
Great visit, very cordial and knowledgeable. The health of my teeth is another story, but that is my own fault.
Wait was long, but they did a good job
Dr. Mats is outstanding & I would highly recommend her. I had what I would call an "evil" tooth that just wouldn't quit and eventually I needed a root canal. Dr. Mats has true empathy for her patients and knows the pain & anxiety associated with dental work. She is highly skilled, knowledgeable and to this day is the only dentist that can numb me with one try. I'm thankful I chose her & I know my root canal is being done correctly. The staff is really friendly and I've never waited more than 20 minutes. Thumbs up all around.
Everyone was really friendly and what I really took note of was how much they seemed to love what they do. That's a great feeling in a Dentist office. Well done.
amazing! super professional, excellent service
First time going, will go back again. No wait time. Dr. is VERY knowledgeable.
Very positive experience. Straight forward advice, procedures, and explanations. Would recommend.
Fabulous- hygienists were great
Super helpful and friendly, although I saw another of the dentist's within the practice and not Dr. Marina Mats herself.
I so enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Mats and, if memory serves, had found her through other positive reviews. She is patient, informative, thoughtful and has great bedside manner. The office staff was strong as well. The only blip is that I don't believe her office takes my insurance, which I would have liked to have been notified of before the appointment.
Very professional and helped diagnose some problems early on. I definitely recommend.
Marina and her staff were great. They were informative, but not overly pushy. Considering they are 100% covered under my insurance, you can't beat that.
Love the staff, love the Drs, love the practice. They really care about your dental health and are amazingly kind and attentive.
Really great doctor and supporting staff.
She's single handedly made going to the dentist something I don't hate. It's almost enjoyable!
I ended up needing two root canals, and a number of fillings, over the course of a year. The staff are pleasant and kind. The are really good at working appointments around your schedule. Dr. Matz and the other dentists really know their business. They are intent on good outcomes, and minimizing suffering. They don't use amalgam in their fillings, they use something more tooth-colored. It was a small surprise to me, because I was used to amalgam fillings. After having failing fillings replaced with this new compound, my teeth look more like teeth, and less like lumps of metal.
Great experience overall, I felt like she really took the time to speak with me and discuss my dental situation in detail. Amazing office staff, very friendly and helpful overall.
I have and would recommend her to anyone. Make going to the dentist a pleasure (well, sort of).
She was very attentive and answered all my questions. It was a great visit.
Marina was much more helpful and informative than my previous dentist; she pointed out two things (a cavity forming under an old silver cap)and the less than ideal job done on another tooth by a prev. dentist. She was willing to answer and explain my questions; had my wisdom teeth pulled out the following week. Lovely and peaceful waiting room, clean facilities, and great staff.
I'm not a fan of going to the dentist, adding that my 1st visit was an emergency situation, I was really worried. Marina's staff are very helpful and pleasant to work with. Dr. Mats helped me feel at ease and took away my toothache.
Marina is amazing. I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes for my appointments. Her staff are courteous and friendly, the office is clean and inviting. I don't mind going to the dentist any more...
Great Dentist. I highly recommended to all my friends.
She is the best dentist I've ever been to, and I recommend her to everyone I know!
The staff was friendly and knowledgable. I am absolutely using this dentists from now on and recommending to all my friends
Great dentist. Gave a professional yet personal impression. Also saw a hygienist who also impressed me.
Excellent Dentist, great staff and office too. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. I came in multiple times in two months for various procedures. They accomodate you quickly and efficiently. Their evening hours are very convenient for my work schedule.
Great Dentist, Friendly, Polite and Charming
Very professional and explanatory in her findings.
Very good, first time client, going to make this my permanent place.
I needed an emergency appointment-I'm from out of town-her staff was the best I have experienced in a long time-equal to my home dentist. Dr. Mats was outstanding and if I lived in the city I'd ask to be her patient-NYC-you are fortunate to have such a quality person serving you-treat her well-don morris, Ph.D.
The office environment was upbeat, the staff was very helpful in sorting out an issue with my insurance card. Dr. Mats answered all my questions and was attentive to my comfort while she was working. Overall great experience!
Dr. Mats is such a great dentist. She is so kind and very clear in her treatment plan. I had an absolutely wonderful and painless experience. I would highly recommend her. Her staff is also very helpful and professional.
very nice + professional. as quick and painless as a dentist visit could be.
veri nice, gentile and competent. The best dentist I found since I moved to NY. The office is clean and beautiful, with polite and smiley secretaries. I will comeback
Great practice and great dentist. Highly recommended
very professional, kind, and efficient.
Great office, professional staff, courteous & efficient!
This was the most incredible experience I've ever had. Dr. Marina was delicate yet efficient. I'll never go anywhere else again.
