BIG SMILES AT THE SMILE SPA. Dr. Krochak's office gives you the royal treatment from the moment you walk in. The office is modern, clean, organized, and runs ON TIME -- which is kind of a miracle. The chair you sitin during your appointment has a massage thingy built in -- very nice touch -- and the music is relaxing. They have a lot to relax dental-phobic patients as well. Julia did my ex-rays and was very careful not to hurt me while she did it--a lot of people who've done my ex-rays in the past (elsewhere) were rough with this process. Then Dr. Krochak used very modern technology to check me for cavities--he found some BUT when he filled them during the next appointment, he did a great job numbing my mouth--and I had NO pain. Not during, not afterwards. I was actually giggling in the chair--as Dr. Krochak has a sense of humor too. I also did a teeth whitening kit (the "at home" kind), and it was easy and efficient, saw major results in 3 days although they mentioned it might take longer. Definitely going to go back--pleasant, efficient, and top-notch quality from start to finish. Big shout-out to Melissa, Jasmine, and Taurus at the front desk. I left wondering if I was at a dentist appointment or a spa -- then I realized how well the name "Smile Spa" fits... If you're in or near Manhattan, definitely give Dr. Krochak a try -- tell him Mel sent you! See you guys again soon! :)

I could have not been more impressed by Dr. Krochak and his staff. I interacted with five different people this morning (the receptionist, the x-ray technician, Dr. Krochak, the dental hygienist, and an employee who explained insurance matters)and every single one of them was attentive, kind, professional, and thorough. I especially appreciated that they had someone take the time to walk through what my insurance covered and what it didn't for any future work I would have done. Have already recommended them to someone and will happily do so again.

Dr. K is amazing! I needed a new dentist after moving to NYC, and Dr. K is wonderful. He spent a significant amount of time with me at the beginning of my appointment, gathering my history and checking my teeth. Mycleaning with the hygienist was incredibly thorough and my teeth have never felt cleaner!

I was not happy with the dental work and the quote for future work was alot more than other dentists quoted. Dr Krochak is really lovely however so if it was for a clean or something simple I might recommend to a friend.

The doctor himself seems to be knowledgeable and skillful However, I felt judged by him because of not too great condition of my teeth. His assistant is not too nice, I would even say rude. I constantly felt unwelcomed around him.The worst part is dentist's front desk lady. At first she seemed bubbly and nice and I wouldn't expect her to try to trick me and my insurance. She wouldn't give me my treatment plan. When I finally got it after request, the prices were significantly higher than we agreed upon before I started the treatment. When I complained, she told me that it was a program error. To cut a long story short, I've decided to continue my treatment with another doctor because of ridiculously expensive prices that do not correspond the attitude of the employees and quality of service I was receiving . After three month of my visit, out of the blue I found a charge of a hundred dollars made by her without my authorization. When I called to find out what's happening, she said "oh, it's just a little extra for your treatment". This was outrageous!!!! Of course, I had to dispute the charge with my bank. So if you decide to go there anyway, beware of extra charges and be careful with the financial information that you give to the front desk. I would not trust them even for a second.

I have extreme anxiety of getting any work done and his demeanor is so calming, and making sure I was comfortable the entire time, put me at ease. He doesn't use the typical needle for Novocaine, so that made it evenmore pleasant. Dr. Krochak came highly recommended to me from my best friend and can only mimic her thoughts!

2nd Great visit - Had root canal and while this can be a frightening experience, I actually went to sleep twice in the chair while it was being performed. Great staff. Great dental assistant, very caring. Dentist top notch, explained everythingand on time. I waited less than 10 minutes to be seen (I was the late one). Highly recommended.

Dr. K always listens to my concerns and addresses them right away. He gives me his honest opinion and is not like other dentists that recommend unnecessary work just for the money. He tells me exactly what should be done now,or soon- and what can wait. And he has helped me not fear dental work!! Very happy with his office so far.

I highly recommend him and his entire staff - outstanding customer service!

Dr. Krochak is a great dentist. In the past, some dentists have had trouble numbing my teeth (while having no trouble numbing my cheeks for hours on end); Dr. Krochak was gentle (I didn't even notice the needle going in).

What can I say? He's the best. After many many sub par and a few truly awful dental experiences in my early twenties, Dr Krochak was just what I needed to make me feel comfortable enough (read: not terrified) to addressmy laundry list of issues, without embarrassment. Highly, highly reccomended.

Dr. Krochack was an excellent dentist who I would recommend to friends and also my own patients. From the time that I came into the office, I was greeted immediately by a warm and friendly office team. The dentist spent timewith me, answered many questions, and provided a thorough exam.

I have had an absolutely wonderful experience with Dr. Krochak thus far. It is clear that he sets the tone with his staff, who all demonstrate the same kind, caring, and attentive bedside manner that he does (from the front deskto dental assistants to dental hygienists). He takes time to explain procedures and preventative care unprompted, and did a very thorough evaluation for my first visit. This office also pays attention to details to make the dental visit as comfortable as possible, from providing aromatherapy, lip balm, and even an iPod to listen to during your procedures. Highly recommended!
