I went to Dr.Gelfand because of the reviews and I couldn’t agree with them anymore! All the nurses and woman workingthe front desk were extremely helpful. I haven’t been to the dentist in a long time and they really helped me understand everything that was going on.

I had an emergency today and I found this dentist on Zocdoc. Read the reviews and he sounded really good so I went. Once I arrived the receptionist was very polite and you can tell a place that’s well organized from the moment you enter. Turned out my wisdom tooth needed to be removed immediately. So the doctor made me feel really comfortable and calmed me down. He made sure that my comfort came first and he was very patient. Overall I removed my wisdom tooth without any pain. I would definitely recommend this doctor.

Dr. Gelfand and the entire staff were very friendly and extremely informative. I came in for a cleaning and then Dr. Gelfand came up with a solution to my jaw pain and wrote up a dental plan for the year, to map out what the process and cost would be to fix my jaw and teeth issues. Love this place! Will be returning!

Michael Gelfand is the only Dentist I trust. Not just because he is extremely professional and knowledgeable in his field but mainly because he makes sure that I never feel pain (tooth pain is my worst fear). Whenever he does any kind of procedure he goes an extra mile to make me feel comfortable. I trust Michael with my daughter's smile and he treats my wife as well. He is my family dentist and has been for many years. I highly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for a great doctor.

Great! I didn't see dr Micheal Gelfand because he was on vacation, I saw someone else and she was great. She was well mannered and she listened to my concerns before she began. She cares about her patients and she was very friendly.

Dr Gelfand and his staff are the best!! I was recommended to him by a friend several years ago. Dr.G and his staff are the best! His Jovial humor and professionalism is paramount to all the dentist I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot!! However most of all you can really see that Dr Gelfand is there for his patients,and he's all about his patients.

Michael Gelfand maneurism was very professional and knowledgeable, gentle, communicative and attentive. I had a serious emergency after Hurricance Sandy; being displaced from my home was difficult enough since my primary dentist sustained a total loss of his office. ZocDoc made it possible for me to find Michael who was available the next day. I am glad I ended in good hands.
