I could not ask for a better experience with a doctor and her staff than the one I had with Dr. Lozano today. A new patient, I unfortunately had to cancel my appointment at the last minute (20 min before the appointment) due to an unexpected meeting at work, and rather than reschedule for later in the week, they offered that I come in during their lunch break so that I wouldn't have to wait. When I arrived at the office, I was seen right away. The doctor took her time with me to understand what was important to me, why I was there, and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable (and we all know how hard that is at the dentist's office). She also spent plenty of time with me explaining the pros and cons to procedures I was considering and offered to send me more info—even on services that she doesn't provide at her practice! Dr. Lozano is one of—if not the most—genuine, approachable, and responsive doctors I've ever met. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!
All around excellent. Highly recommend.
Dr Villamar-Lozano is very welcoming, cheerful and most importantly competent and professional. All the staff in her office is very nice and care about you. She explained everything I needed to know and fixed my issue right away. She was very confident and efficient but at the same time she was not rushing and she really took the time at every step to make sure everything was ok for me. Overall I actually had a great time, which is rare at a dentist's office!
It was great! I was in and out!
I had some fill ins she insisted on redoing cuz they were old, though I didn't think anything was wrong with them and my previous dentists didn't see anything wrong with them yet either. But she showed me some pictures and explained why they were bad, which I trusted, though I wasn't really sure what to look for and didn't feel like anything had felt wrong. I figured it couldn't hurt just to get them replaced and avoid waiting until they showed physical signs of wear. Well, I was wrong. She gave me new ones that look better but I haven't been able to have a cold glass of anything because I feel SUPER sensitivity in the two places she replaced. But I went back a second time to give her a chance to fix it, like an idiot. I'm always too trusting of medical professionals because of my ignorance on the topic. She drilled out the ones she redid and re-refilled them. At one point I winced and she laughed at me! She said I was just afraid of pain and that there was no way I felt any pain. My previous dentist could testify that I have the misfortune of having a hard time to go numb. And even if I were just afraid and anticipating the drill pain, laughing seems like an inappropriate response. At the time I just shrugged it off because I was frozen in place with tools in my mouth. Well, here we are, several weeks after the second refill and they still have hypersensitivity. I'll have to waste time on another dentist to get them fixed.... AGAIN, which is infuriating because I had no problem with them yet. She did try building some rapport with me the second time around, which made her more likable. But that doesn't help the problems I have now. The sweet receptionist, Alice, was the best part. She was lovely and professional.
Dr. Lozano was very attentive; as was her staff. thanks for making going to the dentist a fun experience.
Very thorough examination during a cleaning. I had to ask her to slow down and explain things to me - but once I did, she was very helpful in showing me what was going on, walking me through how to improve my self-care, and more. Very good visit.
Absolutely perfect... super quick to be seen... Dr Villamar is both very professional and friendly. Great communication... I always knew what was going to happen, how long it would take, how much it would cost etc... Highly recommended.
It became evident within the first couple of minutes during my consultation that Doctor Villa Mar'Lozano is an expert in her field and that she is passionate about her work. She diagnose my initial reason for going there explained my.options. I.was so impressed with my entire experience and have chosen to continue as her patient. Meeting her restored my faith in dentistry servoce.
My visit with Dr. Villamar-Lozano was amazing! Would recommend to anyone :)
Very informative, took her time talking to me and was very gentle.
Everyone in Dr. Villamar-Lozano's office is so personable and welcoming. They remembered me after the first time. Makes going to the dentist fun!
Very fast appointment, in all ways. Going back to get 2 cavities filled--will see how a second visit goes.
Dr Villamar cares about her patients and it almost feels good to go the dentist! Also she is very gentle and with my sensitive gums that is a big plus !
Very thorough and clear in her observations and suggestions for improvement.
Place is very clean, staff is very friendly. Very professional.
Dr Villamar was wonderful! She came as a recommendation from a colleague and did not disappoint. She made sure I understood what was going on with my teeth and made a personalized plan for my open bite. I really appreciate the care she has taken with my oral health. She also does all the cleanings and procedures herself which is very rare among dentist!
Excellent dentist I wish I found her years ago!!!
Dr Villamar Lozano was very detailed on explaining what needed to be done. Pleasant and on time. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a dentist.
Much nicer than other dentists I have gone to. The teeth cleaning was much less painful than I have received from other dentists.
Dr. Villamar-Lozano was professional and all the staff were very friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
I made an appointment to have my teeth cleaned and have a general check up with Dr. Villa are because she had good good ratings was was conveniently located close to work. During my first appointment, it was indicated after my cleaning that I needed to get a filling on one of my teeth and that a second filling would need to be replaced. After making the second appointment, I was contacted saying that they would need to reschedule me for the following week, which was fine with me. When I arrived to my appointment, I was informed that they intended on performing one and replacing two fillings, even though I currently felt no discomfort from either tooth. Because I have no background in dentistry, I agreed and proceeded with the fillings. After seeing Dr. Villamar for the second time, I began to feel extreme discomfort in one of my teeth. I called her office a couple of different times, and even though I indicated to the receptionist that I was in extreme pain, was unable to speak with the Dr. Villamar. My only option was to take an appointment for the following week. After 'dealing' with the pain for two additional days, I called the office again to see if they could prescribe me something for the pain until I could meet with the dentist. During this call, I was finally able to speak to Dr. Villamar, but was told that I wouldn't be able to get anything to help the pain subside until she met with me and she could examine the tooth. Once I was able to speak to her, she was able to find an opening for the following day that was not previously offered to me durning my other calls with the receptionist. Unfortunetly, shortly after I made the emergency appointment with Dr. Villamar regarding my tooth, she cancelled my appointment due to weather conditions via an unprofessional text message. She then followed up with the recommendation of a specialist without any formal contract information and that was not covered by my insurance. Luckily, I was able to find another dentist in the area the following morning that was able to accommodate me into their schedule and perform a root canal to elevate the extreme pain in my tooth. However, since the root canal, he has also had to fix another filling that Dr. Villamar had performed.
Dr. Villamar was an absolute sweetheart, very friendly, and showed me in right away, she even showed me a very informative clip on cavities/gum disease. However, I did not like the cleaning I received. My mouth did not feel so clean afterward, and I found that the hygienist only used a little scalpel tool as opposed to any actual machinery. I'm sure had I something, the Dr. would have been very accommodating, but I didn't.
Dr. Villamar is simply amazing -- she doesn't treat you like a child, she's direct with her diagnosis, but she's also very humorous and friendly. She not only explains what she sees, she actually shows you the inside of your mouth with a camera that helps you understand what's happening in there and what needs to be done.
Very sweet woman. Took the time to explain everything to me, and gave me great recommendations on how to change my routine to make up for lost enamel and deterioration.
Nice and informative!
Excellent patient care, professional, knowledgeable , and ethical. I would recommend Dr.Villamar-Lozano to my friends and family.
Maritza was delightful, as was her hygenist. I will definitely continue to see her for cleanings. (She also filled a cavity for me, and almost made the experience pleasant. Almost.)
ouch. I've been getting my teeth cleaned every 6 months for over 40 years. this is the first time they have ever hurt- during and after a cleaning. I gave her the benefit of the doubt and went twice. even worse the second time. she even used "numbing solution' which I have never needed and they still hurt! teeth have been over sensitive since my visit over 2 weeks ago. I really hope no permanent damage was done. I will not be going back.
I was really pleased with my experience. I had been going to the same dentist for 17 years before I moved, so I didn't realize what I was missing out on. The hygienist was really gentle and actually explained to me how to best care for my teeth, from toothpaste, to toothbrush, to flossing and brushing techniques. Dr. Villamar was funny and made me feel comfortable right away. I needed a follow up appointment and she explained to me the process and what precisely was happening with my teeth.
She's sweet, friendly, and very personable.
Dirty, out-of-date office. There was no soap and nothing to dry my hands with in their restroom. Reviews about erroneous diagnoses and running up insurance are absolutely true. Will not return.
Super awesome - no dog as other users have reported. Staff is super friendly and the doc cleaned my teeth personally. I can't recommend her enough!
Dr. Villamar is so wonderful! She's an absolute sweetheart, almost motherly in her concern & affection, as well as being very gentle. She's also very accommodating & willing to discuss your treatment options with you until you can come up with a plan that suits both of you. A+!
Overall a great experience, can't wait for my next appointment! Highly recommend
Very nice. Very professional, seemed to really care about my oral health!
It was horrible and I would not recommend her to anyone.
Maritza is a very sweet woman and knows what she is doing. I felt very comfortable the entire time, and I usually am not at other dentists!
Dr. Villamar was very friendly and made sure I knew exactly what was going on. I had to go in on a Saturday because my wisdom tooth was bothering me. She knew exactly what to do and helped me through the process quickly and efficiently. I will definitely be coming back!
Faulty dental work that has to be replaced by other dentists.
i love dr. lozano! she's an absolute doll.
I have the biggest fear of the dentist, but she makes you feel so comforting. Im looking forward to going back to her.
I think she's a great dentist. I had a lot of work done: complex fillings mostly. And she did an excellent job!
Very nice nurse and dentist, but was shocked that there was a dog running around the office (including in the check up rooms). The supplies and office also seemed very old and outdated. I felt very uncomfortable and will not be back.
Dr.Vlllamar has a great affinity with patients in my experience. She is extremely knowledgeable,trustworthy and pleasant.
Hygenist was great, first time going to Dentist and no pain.
no nonsense solved my problem made recommendations available for follow ups soon super convenient
Terriffic dentist - would recommend to anyone. She was very patient, careful, and pleasantly mannered. Made me feel like I'd been going there for years.
She was very helpful and specific with her dental care routine advice. Staff was very communicative both by phone and in-office.
She is a godsend. Love her.
Katja, my hygenist, was very gentle and did a great job cleaning my teeth.
Minimal wait, friendly staff, good cleaning.
she will rob you!
Best dentist I've ever been to. She thoroughly explained everything, took pictures to show me what she was doing throughout the procedure.
Incredible. She came as a rec from a coworker and now she's the only person I'd recommend to anyone else, ever. I've had tons of work done with her and she is hands down the most thorough, professional, and also incredibly warm and funny dentist I've ever visited.
She was fantastic, very personable. Katya, her dental hygienist was efficient, thorough and gentle. Best of all, she didn't talk me into anything except for an electric toothbrush and regular flossing. Wonderful experience.
She was great! Very pleasant and professional.
Was the best dentist I ever had. The hygienist was so great. My son also saw them and finally he has a dentist he wasn't scared of. Will keep this dentist forever.
Friendly staff, didn't have to wait, will return.
Dr. Maritza is quite pleasant and the hygienist was good. Really clear explanation of what's happening with my teeth.
Very kind but felt as though I was being upsold on a lot of services I did not need.
She's very sweet!
The Doctor was very nice and helpful.
Fantastic! Pushed no extras on me and was generally lovely. A nice, thorough cleaning and minimal pain.
Courteous and professional. I went in for a routine cleaning. Had a painless experience. Will definitely go back in 6 months.
My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Villamar and we've been so happy with her professionalism and courtesy. She is thorough and informative, always explains things clearly and with humor. I recommend her whenever I hear people are looking for a good dentist in NYC.
I love Dr. Villamar!
What I absolutely loved about my visit was the way Dr. Maritza Villamar-Lozano walked me through every step of the process. She had a camera that took photos of my teeth and after she was done cleaning and inspecting, we went through each photo and she showed me what needed work, etc. It was a really great experience and I loved being involved in the process. She showed my a cavity, which of course stinks, but it's better than some dentists who tell you that you have a cavity just for the sake of getting a little extra money. I love that I can trust this dentist and understand every part of the procedure.
It's a relaxed professional environment which is exactly what I was looking for. You're kept informed about what they are doing and most importantly, you don't feel like they're just making up work that needs doing which I've encountered at many other NY dentists. I would be happy to recommend this surgery to friends.
Very efficient, and a good dentist
All of the staff was extremely friendly and timely. I got there early to fill out some paperwork as a new patient, and it only took a few minutes to fill out, and they were ready for me right on time. The hygienist was very careful, and the whole experience was very pleasant. I'll be going back.
Friendly, communicative staff. All patients appreciate when a doctor clues them in on what they are doing, especially at the dentist. Dr. Villamar-Lozano was great at this.
Love my experience in with Dr. Villamar-Lozano every time. Gentle, Caring, and Experienced practioner!
Excellent dentist - great support team. These guys are serious about saving my gums/teeth.
Dr. Villamar is the best dentist I've never seen. I've had to have a lot of dental work, due to TMJ, and she's been fantastically professional and thorough for all of it. She talks to me about all the options I have, and makes sure I'm comfortable with what she's doing. Also, I'm a giant baby about needles & pain, and she's always wonderful about giving me enough novacaine and helping me through getting the injections using breathing exercises. I will go to her until she retires.
Best dentist ever! When my wisdom tooth acted up, she saw me the same morning and extracted it completely painlessly. Dr. Villamar-Lozano is friendly, caring, and expert at what she does.
Contacted me in advance for insurance info to ensure being treated ASAP. It worked! Excellent staff (kudos to Katia, Dental Hygienist, she was super gentle, accurate, and did a great job). Highly recommended.
Dr. Villamar-Lozano was exceptional. As soon as I walked in the office I was in a chair getting my teeth cleaned. Her staff is very professional and helpful; It was a great experience all around.
Maritza and her colleagues have unbelievably professional bedside manner and really know how to make a patient feel cared for and under control. Her practice came highly recommended by a colleague of mine, and so far all of his praises have proven true- especially since I hadn't seen a dentist in quite some time. I also appreciated how much time she spent explaining processes to me, and not immediately going for the big cost procedures right away- instead, she established a long-term plan to improve my gum and dental health. 5 stars!!!
State of the art technology, very quick service, very professional, very friendly and she even uses email to stay in touch! She's also very reasonable and willing to work with you when it comes to cost.
Very personable and friendly and explained my care plan well. She also told me what needed immediate care and what was optional/cosmetic in nature.
I wasn't sure what to expect when choosing a new dentist, but this was one of the best experiences once she came into the exam room. Very professional, easy going, and helped me relax. Thank you.
Maybe this is because my last dentist was in small-town Ohio, but I was really impressed with the technology she used: teeny camera on a wand to take digital pictures of my teeth! She showed me everything she was seeing, and explained to me what it meant, and gave me practical advice on what to do about it. Definitely my most informative appointment ever! If you want to feel proactive in terms of your mouth care, this should be your dentist! Bonus: she used numbing gel on my gums before going after them with that pokey-hook device!
I was seen and treated very quickly and efficiently for pain I was having despite being a new patient. She's very sweet and definitely knows what she's doing.
