Verified Patient Reviews
They are excellent.
This was one of the more intense sensory experiences of my life! I hate needles but somehow the doctor calmed me down enough to have literally dozens of injections into my mouth, numbed it so much I couldn't feel the whole bottom half of my face, and then he gave my mouth a deep cleaning and injected antibiotics into my gums. Dr. Cohen was great, told me stories and stayed enthusiastic enough that I could feel confident trusting him with my mouth. We'll see how I heal but right now I feel grateful I found this office.
Seems more knowledgeable than other dentists and listens to what you say and takes it into account in what he recommends. Really the only dentist i've ever liked.
Dr. Cohen was kind and professional. His office was clean, and the front desk staff was friendly and helpful with my personal questions. I was able to complete the paperwork online beforehand too, which saved me time at the office. I will definitely be back to visit.
Went to clean my teeth and when I went into the bathroom to look at it, it wasn't cleaned properly
No wait and addressed all concerns and questions in detail . He is great and came up with a plan on how to resolve my dental issues and get me back to healthy pearly whites??
It was a quick visit. Sencond time visiting this dentist and I'm very satisfied with the service.
It was great!! I was a Jacobi dental clinic for 4 1/2 hours and didn’t get to see the dentist and got mad and found Dr. Ofer cohen on this application!! The moment I got there they treated me like a human being and helped me with my pain!! Really glad I went there 5 Stars
It was my first time visiting Dr. Cohen. First a doctor took my dental x-rays, inmediately took me to another doctor who performed a dental cleansing (the reason of my visit) and five minutes after he finished I met Dr.Cohen who took a look at my x-rays and my teeth and gave me his review. Everyone had a great attitude, i'll be back in six months for my next cleansing. Fully recommended.
The wait was not very long. They all were very helpful and informative. Dr. Ofer cohen was very professional. He made you understand what going on with your teeth and gives a great break down of what going to happen, how it suppose to be. Highly recommended thjs place.
I really liked the dentist but the wait time was over a hour and it was a bit annoying. It was not busy when I walked in. Only 1 person in the waiting room. Besides the wait time all I kept hearing was a employer complaining about another worker and speaking inappropriately. Def not professional. But besides the wait time I really liked the doctor and his advice on my treeth.
I think that he was a great doctor. He made me very comfortable explained everything to me with detail. Did recommendations based on my needs. I was over all pleased with the visit.
Friendly staff, clean office and fast visit.
He is friendly & professional
Seems like he doesn't do anything except cleanings unless you have a specific insurance that'll cover your work...and you won't find that out until AFTER you wasted your time checking in with the receptionist, having your X-rays done and are sitting in the chair of the doctor's office. WASTE OF TIME! SEE SOMEONE ELSE! Especially if you have Healthfirst (Medicaid).
Dr. Cohen is very patient. He listens to you and go over everything to ensure you are comfortable before he starts any procedure. Very good dentist.
Dr. Ofer Cohen was very professional and courteous.
Everyone was polite and very professional. The staff at the front desk greeted me with a warm and professional smile. I'm glad I choose this office and will continue to get my dental care.
Very friendly staff informative Dr and reasonable prices
They are just so nice, considerate and friendly. They remind me of our dentist from our childhood who we had in Manhattan for 30 years. They are also very good with teens and kids.
I had a previous dentist who I felt treated like just another number. Having to switch to now Dr. Cohen, made me feel like a person. He was very professional, attentive to details and really gives you the proper attention as a client. I'll be going back.
Dr. Cohen is so sweet, knowledgeable and comforting!
Nice staff and the doctor was great. He took time to explain stuff to me as well as options available
Awesome as always.
They made me feel comfortable and safe.
Staff was nice and cordial. Dr. Cohen was very gentle and informative and quick.
Great appointment. Dentist and staff were amazing.
The provider was great but the facility was very uncomfortable with very little privacy.
Disappointed, will seek to unsubscribe and have my dentistry done elsewhere
It was a complete waste of time. When he noticed that my insurance couldn't cover a root canal among other things he said there was nothing to do because he was not going to be paid for what I wanted to get done. I even mentioned a cleaning and he completely changed the topic. The ladies at the front desk were very polite except that she never gave me back my insurance card and now I have to go back the next to go pick it up. It was a complete mess.
I LOVE THIS DENTIST!!!
I would recommend this dentist to everyone I know. They really could improve on the phone answering at the Forham location, it's EXTREMELY difficult to reach that particular office which is the office that I have all of my procedures done! If they fix that issue, they would be perfect!
I have had nothing but a pleasurable experience at Cohen's Gentle Dental! The staff was knowledgeable, courteous & extremely friendly. I would recommend them to everyone who is looking for a dentist who is truly gentle, compassionate to dental fear & straight forward! Dr. Cohen rocks & I wished I would have found out about him sooner!
My 1st time going & was seen Quickly....Hope it's always like this.
Waiting area no where to sit the receptionist is very rude & doesn't have any idea of what she is doin it's just very unprofessional
The front desk was sweet and nice. They were welcoming.
Everyone from the staff to the actual dentist were very nice respectful and very helpful !
The dentist was thorough. He explained what he was doing and took his time.
He always says that my ensure its not cover me absolutely nothing. Wich could not be that way.
He and his staff are great but ZocDoc books over Jewish holidays which he observes, so please check your bookings to make sure it is not a Jewish holiday as ZocDoc can not figure out he is an observant Jew.
Very good. He was informative.
The Doctor was amazing, made me feel secure and relaxed. Explained in detail everything pros and cons and have a solution to all the problems I had. Seeing him again. lol he's now my dentist
I was a bit disappointed with my visit. Firstly, my wait time was a bit long. Then upon getting examined, I was told my gums were inflamed but they wouldn't even do a cleaning unless I agreed to do an expensive treatment/procedure and put money down first because apparently my insurance wouldn't cover it. I ended up going to another dentist for a second opinion and they did my cleaning with no problem and said the deep scaling IS covered by insurance and scheduled me for that for another day. Won't be going to Cohen again.
He's a great Dentist been going to him for years I recommend him to anyone
I think he is a great dentist. Both times I have gone to his office for consultations. He was very gentle and understanding. He made me feel very comfortable. He explained all the options I had to restore my smile.
It was very enjoyable
Again I get to the DRs office for them to tell me that they do not take my insurance very frustrating
I'm staying He's my primary dentist Great and kind staff
I had a great experience at Gentle Dental, Dr.Cohen is very down to earth and pleasant. I was seen right away and the staff was great.
He was really nice and did a great job
Great Customer Service, Dentist Cohen Makes Funny Comments Distracting a scary person from the Numbing etc hes a great Dentist Highly Recommend it Overall his Staff Is Very Pleasant, Nice & Clean Dentist Office I LOVED IT!
Dr. Cohen was very friendly and knowledgable. Made my experience quick and eased my nerves. Definitely recommend!
was very rushed and did not feel like he did a proper teeth cleaning more like just brushed my teeth, i dont think i will be seeing this dentist again.
The staff was friendly and attentive. The dentist seem patient and caring and overall concerned about the proper treatment.
Dr. Cohen was sincere and informative. His colleague performed my cleaning at it was thorough and deep.
Dr Cohen is very polite and informative. His nurse Rosie was very welcoming and had answered all my questions with a smile. I was referred to another location for teeth extraction which is an inconvenience. I prefer to have all my procedures done in one location.
I was very pleased with Dr Cohen very friendly explained everything I will be going back to him again . The secretary was very pleasant & helpful , all the staff were very pleasant.
The staff should update patients as to whether services they book an appointment for is available!! Especially when the appointment is booked 2 weeks in advance!
I was in and out in under 20 mins for a cleaning. Friendly staff and a very 'gentle' dentist.
Dr. Cohen, was kind, compassionate and really awesome overall. The x-ray technician was very kind as well, and his dental assistant too. They were very accommodating with my schedule given that I am a teacher (yup they take UFT welfare fund - woohoo!). The receptionist was kind too but speaks super softly/low voice so hard to hear her and she spelled my name wrong when she sent my prescription to the pharmacy but other than that totally recommend going to Dr. Cohen. Plus, they have multiple locations in Manhattan and the Bronx.
Service was very fine
There was a mistake because of the scheduling with the Jewish holidays but he was profusely apologetic and it is because Zocdoc must not recognize holidays in its system. He is great though
Me gusto bastante, son muy profesionales todos
Very nice staff.
My visit with Doctor Cohen was excellent. He explained the procedure and the recommendation he had for my treatment clearly. I was very impressed since it was my first visit. I highly recommend him to my family and friends.
On my first visit, Dr. Cohen was the Dr. Who attended me. That was in May. Routine check up/cleaning. He said everything was ok and that my teeth were in great shape. About a month later I go back with a horrible toothache and another set of x-rays were taken. I told them a peice of tooth fell out while i was flossing and I think I have a cavity. This time it was another Dr. (Don't recall his name). He said nothing was wrong and I just had inflamed gums. I go back a third time now in October, no new x-rays are taken. They decide to look at the x-rays that were taken on my second visit. All of a sudden I have a deep cavity and need a root canal. This frustrates me because this could have been addressed back in May when I first visited Dr. Cohens office. Even the second time with a second pair of eyes. And still no one caught it. This was my experience. You decide what's right for you.
I think he is a very good dentist. He made me feel very comfortable during my visit. He explained all the procedures I can go threw and what he felt was best for me. I'm very excited to start working with him.
Dr. Cohen was great! I enjoyed my visit at the dentist and will go back again. Highly recommend him. He is a pleasant person and very professional and knowledgable.
I thought the experience was very positive. Everyone from the the receptionist to the technician and the dentist were warm and professional.
Cohen and his staff are great! I would definitely recommend him. So kind and helpful.
Great and professional
Really nice, proffesional and helpful. Great service. The doctor is amaizng
Great practice with a friendly, professional staff. The office is very bare bones, but the equipment/services are up to date.
He really knows what he's doing and that's refreshing. I went in for a consulting and he give me a great check. He told me what I need and double checks with the insurance for coverage. Great office highly recommend
The only down side was the wait time however Dr. Cohen and staff were very friendly and he was very gentle and professional.
Dr. Cohen is great doctor who is both personable, patient and very considerate. I highly recommend him for anyone.
The dentist was very knowledgable and fast.
Best Dentist ever thanks a lot highly recommended.
The office is very clean, all of the people who work there were very professional and friendly (though I feel the receptionist in the front could've been a little more friendly) .. the X-ray technician was very nice, as was the dentist .. Every visit I've had there has always been pleasant .. I would definitely recommend !
I thought the dentist was very thorough. He recommended different treatments for me. Seemed very helpful and knowledgeable. The assistants and front desk staff also went above and beyond as far as scheduling.
Thanks for everything! U make going to the dentist less scary and more enjoyable!
It was fine. Zoo doc u must confirm times because i was scheduled to the white plains road and when i went they said that he was never scheduled there on thursdays! I was very disappointed and they were nice enough to call the fordham road location where he was scheduled instead. The place is adequate but would have preferred a location that wasnt out of my way. Please double check his schedules so this mistake will not happen again. Overall he was pretty fast and i will be sending my kisd to him, but in the riverdal area location.
Very clean and professional environment. Great staff. Dr. Cohen was very nice and had all the answers! Would definitely recommend him to my friends
He did a very quick clean and polish. No flossing or close checking or fluoride rinse, and the cleaning was not thorough. I'm not going back.
Loved it, quick service
My visit with dr. Cohen was really good. He was very nice and helpful. He was able to answer all my questions, you could tell he cares about his patients and does whatever he can to help them. I would definitely recommend him and will be going back.
Not happy about it.
Highly disappointed with my visit, I was seen for less than 5 minutes and sent away.
I made appt on Zocdoc for 1030 the week before, they left a message on my machine the day before for 1100 (?). I got there at 1050, had to wait an hour to be seen, one person was in waiting room, he went in before me, plus two others who came after i did! I think the front desk has to get their act together. I had to go to work afterward, and had to skip lunch because they took so long. They could have apologized for what seemed like a screw up, but did not.
My visit was great , the staff was very nice , the doctor was nice .
I really liked the staff and Dr. They treated me very nice and professional. I was very comfortable and I can truly say that I will be bringing my family in. ?????? We will be seeing them soon! Till then, Thank you Dr Cohen and staff.
Dr. Cohen and his staff were very personable and professional; however, the wait time was frustrating.
Very nice people .... Would go again ....
First off, let me start by saying that his staff is wonderful. X-rays were taken promptly and was seated very promptly. My issue with this "professional," comes for his bias towards cash paying customers over those with insurance (such as myself). I was in his chair for under 5minutes which only included a half-effort cleaning done with a manual instrument instead of the electrical tool, something i have not seen since the mid-90s. This was followed by a weak attempt to get me to do teeth-whitening. The cleaning was finished off by his aid. This is unacceptable, you have been warned.
He was rather pleasant & very informative I could see myself visiting there again
I believe he did well.. his eye contact wasn't great , he didn't really give you any care and concern or leave any tips on anything .. Personality wise ,he seemed like a cool person..
Appt felt rushed. Before seeing Dr. Cohen, I had a terrible time with the so-called "dentist", who I later realized was only the dental hygienist (absolutely nothing against them, but don't call yourself a dentist if you're not), who seemed like he was new to cleaning teeth and scratched my mouth up one too many times. I won't be returning.
It was better than any other dental place I have gone to. Really recommend Dr. Cohen and the staff. Was treated with the upmost respect.
Dr Cohen treated me personally in his clinic on 231st Street. Since I arrived the experience was positive, when the Dr greeted me inside I new I was in good hands. The treatment was excellent and the service warm and reassuring. And the result is a new smile with a large front teeth hole fixed. I would highly recommend Dr Cohen DDS.
Visit wasn't what I was used to after seeing other dentists. Staff were pleasant doctor seemed efficient but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
wait time was a little bit but there usually is with all dentists. everyone in the office seemed very nice and helpful. The dentist gave me hope that everything could be fixed and helped which was great. he seemed very knowledgeable.
The staff there are really welcoming and nice the wait was pretty long that is my only problem
I have been here twice and both times they Literally just took my xrays and looked at my mouth and said come next week for the cleaning.
I liked him, will continue to have him as my new dentist
Wow-- I feel so lucky to have found such a kind dentist here in the Bronx. I've had a rough time with my teeth and dentists kind of scare me, but Dr. Cohen and the staff were extremely kind and non-judgmental. I have a lot of work that needs to be done, but Dr. Cohen broke it down into manageable parts.
It was gud and will certainly recommend Cohen to ma frnds
Dr. Cohen was really nice. Had no complaints about him or his team. The hygienist, didn't catch his name but he was extremely nice and helpful. I recommend using this doctor, may have a little wait but besides that everything was good.
The staff was very nice
Very unsatisfied. Waited 2hrs for only an X-Ray to be taken smh
Everybody was very professional, especially DR. Cohen and the assistant who saw me beforehand. DR. Cohen also worked to my preference and made sure I was satisfied before finishing. Excellent.
I felt as though Dr. Cohen could have been a bit more tactful when explaining to me my problem areas, but I've definitely had worse experiences. They got me scheduled very quickly for the procedures I need to correct my dental issues and even worked out a payment plan for the procedure my insurance wouldn't cover. The staff was friendly and courteous. Overall, it was a good visit.
Dr. Cohen was not only very informative, gentle and caring but he also gave me options in case my insurance did not cover the procedures needed. He is extremely friendly and it doesn't hurt that he is easy on the eyes.
my visit was a normal day at the dentist i went in to have a cracked tooth fixed and check up on the overall health of my teeth. i waited about 45 mins to be seen
I'm really glad I went to this dentist. I was very nervous and anxious at first . But dr Cohen made me feel very comfortable and calmly explained procedures thoroughly ! he is very professional and would recommend him to anyone ! Overall I had a wonderful experience with dr Cohen and his staff! Thank you all
excellent staff was very friendly and helpfull with all my insurance questions. Dr cohen was very gentle and whitened my teeth in a hour. Very pleased and will recommend my friends to him
Best dentist ever !!! Best experience ever!!!! My visit with Dr. Cohen was beyond my expectations. The office was clean, the staff was very sweet, and Dr. Cohen was exceptionally knowledgeable and caring. I had always feared going to the dentist, but had to this time because I was in pain. Dr Cohen was patient, kind and very professional. Excellent dentist, I would never go anywhere else!!!!!
Small office. The consultation was through. Dr fixed my issue. Felt a bit pushy since they were attempting a sale.
This was the most unprofessional dentist I have seen. The office was dirty, walls were cracked and medical supplies were sloppily and incorrectly labeled. I went in because my wisdom teeth were causing me extreme gum inflammation and pain. I was hoping to find out why and then to schedule a wisdom tooth removal if necessary. The dentist did not look into my mouth at all. The office took x-rays that the dentist did not look at. He spoke to me for less than a minute. in that time, he assured me that I had four wisdom teeth and it was indeed one of them that was causing me pain, something I already knew. When I asked him if my wisdom teeth needed removal he said "yes, but we have to find out if there is money first" and walked out without giving me any further direction. I took my x-rays with me to another dentist who was much kinder. When I decided to get my wisdom teeth removed, the new dentist requested that I have electronic copies of my x-ray sent to the office. I had to call Dr. Cohen's office 7 times, leaving four messages and talking to a receptionist 3 times before they finally sent the x-rays. Overall, this was a horrible dentist experience. There are many other better options for the same price.
The the office was far from fancy, but Dr. Cohen was frank , personable, and reasonably priced. He saw me with little notice, on the weekend, and solved my problem with little fuss and no up sell.
The staff was not very welcoming. One receptionist had a very unprofessional attitude. Dr. Cohen was very warm, which by the way was shocking due to his unpleasant staff.
Excellent and knowledgable
It was a great visit other than the long wait I would recommend him.
Unlike the typical "used car dealer" type he actually talked me "out" of expensive unnessary cosmetic surgery. Other than that he was very friendly and made you feel as if you had a cousin who was a dentist.
i would never go to this doctor office.. He only took xrays and never examined my teeth, and than said there is nothing he could do for me.
I think he was very informative, professional, yet friendly and I would definitely recommend him.
Love this office, staff very professional and Dr. Cohen is the best. He explain everything to me, and looks for my best options according to my budget. Plus they make you feel at ease.
It was quick and easy
