I have hated going to the dentist since I was a small child but had Dr.Katayev always been my dentist that would have never occurred. I felt safe and confident that I was receiving wonderful care. Not only the doctors but the office staff as well were amazing! The wait time was nearly nonexistent. I would definitely recommend this doctor!

This was my first visit to Murray Hill Dental and I was so pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful staff as well as by the extremely comprehensive checkup and cleaning that I received. I was greeted by their receptionist Gloria, who was very welcoming. Once inside, a technician did a full X ray of my mouth that came up instantly on the computer screen next to me. Then Marina, a lovely woman/hygienist, used a state of the art mini camera and took detailed and close up pictures of each tooth, which was immediately captured on the screen in front of me. Then another hand held device tested my gum tissue health, then an oral cancer screening, and finally my cleaning. She explained everything she was doing and was gentle but very thorough. She finishes by "powerwashing" my teeth with a baking soda solution that diminished any remaining stains. Then Dr. Katayev came to check my teeth and all of the pictures. He was very nice and knowledgeable and made some helpful suggestions that I decided to move forward with. It was very nice of him to take extra time with me at the last minute. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Katayev and Murray Hill Dental!

Well to start things off I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10 years. I was always skeptical about these things but today changed that. Going to Michael Katayev was such an amazing experience. The staff there are amazing. The way they guide you and explain things is outstanding. Easy to understand but the experience itself was great. I’m now more excited to go back. It is something I been putting off for years but after today I definitely am going back and want to take better care of my teeth. I highly recommend going there. Especially with the place being so nice, clean, and organized. ??

I had an old filling removed and a new one put into a rear wisdom tooth. The procedure was done very efficiently, quickly and without pain even though no "needle" was used before the procedure. Dr. Katayev is an excellent dentist. After my tooth was filled, Dr. Kaytayev noticed that the edges of my front teeth were a little uneven. He quickly filed and polished the top of these teeth and they now look smooth on the top surface.

I'm a new dental patient of Dr. Michael Katayev. From the moment I walked in the door, I was impressed with the beautiful, well organized office and friendly staff. However, what was most important to me was the skill with which Dr. Katayev and his able dental, assistant, Oksana worked to replace a chipped dental crown. Because this particular tooth was prone to breakage, Dr. Katayev recommended a zirconia crown, which is reputed to have superior chip resistance. The new crown was ready to be installed in only 11 days and I am very pleased with the smooth dental installation process and the polished nicely made crown.

This dentist was ok during my first year or so of coming to him. Office is clean, organized. The wait time is almost zero. They see you right away which is great but ....Then one day ( I believe my third year of coming) when I showed up for my treatment another dentist walked in and told me that he would be my dentist from now on. Dr. Katayev himself would no longer be working with my insurance. No letters, no email, no calls. Nothing to notify me of such a change. Then when he realized I wasn't too happy he said ''he could'' accommodate me and see me ( as if he was doing me such a favor). But this is not even the worse! Dr. Katayev's behavior seemed really odd last year (2016). You could scroll down on this page and see some other reviews about his bedside manners. He was very rude and had ZERO patience. One day as I sat on the chair to do 1 crown he did a SECOND crown without even asking me if I wanted to do that second crown that day ( opposite sides of the mouth!). He was rushing , acting aggressive and throwing his tools on the counter as if he was mad about something. The water was dripping from my mouth all the way down my neck into my shirt and no one would wipe it. When he finished, he left the room without saying a word to me until I noticed the temp crown was EXTREMELY high and had to be fixed otherwise I wouldn't be able to talk or eat. He then returned to the room to fix it but with an attitude as if I was wasting his time ( if he had done a proper job he wouldn't have to come back and fix it!) He was obviously having a bad day and taking it on me, his patient. The crowns were absolutely terrible and I had to take painkiller for months! I totally regret doing crowns with him ( 5 crowns!!). The way he applied anesthesia on my gums was BARBARIC to make it light.The gum area was sore for weeks afterwards . Also, he and his staff speak Russian (or whatever language they speak) the entire time ( not professional at all!). I could write soooo many things here. Last year, I saw 2 ladies very upset about him in the waiting room ( one actually wrote a review here. Her review is 100% accurate because I was actually there when she had her experience). This doctor only cares about money. He does not care about your teeth at all. The staff is terrified of him. Everyone can see that. I decided to stop going to him after last year's horrible experience ( I am making it brief here as I could write a book about it!!!). I would not recommend him at all. At first he may try to be nice to you. But after a few appointments or years you will see it for yourself. There are so many dentists in the city!!! Don't settle for someone like this!

Problems with communication, and as a result he gets a bit annoyed if you don't understand what he wants you to do. However, he tries to contain himself, but it comes out anyway. For someone who is sensitive about provider's tones during a time when you are very nervous and feels a bit helpless. Additionally, my gums were in pain this morning from my new dentures, not sure if it will be as comfortable as my old ones, and if he will have the patience to work with me through this.

I am usually nervous about going to the dentist, but after my first appointment with Dr. Katayev I feel so much better about coming here! When I first arrived I noticed the front desk staff was extremely warm, friendly and accommodating. Almost as soon as I came in and had finished the paperwork, they were ready to take me in and I was thrilled. I went in for an Invisalign consultation; the doctor explained to me in great detail what needed to be done and how to proceed. My insurance parameters were taken into consideration, and my finance concerns were addressed, which I very much appreciated. The front desk staff went over a payment plan with me and said that they would work with me in financing the treatment, which was so relieving to hear. I really appreciated the fact that they took the time to listen to and answer all my questions. I will be returning here to proceed with the treatment and am now at great ease about going to the dentist. I highly recommend this office!
