Verified Patient Reviews
Fast, personable and overall pleasant experience.
I was misguided by the good reviews I saw online. Extremely unprofessional, terrible experience, first and last time I'll see this dentist.
I always feel like I'm in good hands.
Dr Bauer is great! Just had my first appointment with him today. I need a bunch of work done and he made me feel 100% comfortable. He doesnt rush through the visit, He takes his time and makes sure you understand everything.
Efficient and pleasant experience.
Dr Bauer and his staff are the best! My visit was comfortable and smooth. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Very professional staff, I appreciate the time Dr. Bauer took with me, the dental hygienist was amazing.. very gentle with cleaning, and explaining the process.
Dr Bauer takes all fear of dentists away. He is very gentle in everything that he does and does an amazing job of talking you through what he's doing. He is inventive in ways that I haven't seen a dentist be. He got me back on my feet when my teeth were in a very bad way.
This is a small practice, very well run, professional, welcoming, efficient
Fantastic experience. I have lived in NYC for five years now and seen several different dentists, none of which I was particularly fond. I met Dr. Bauer personally at an unrelated event and felt if his personal demeanor was similar to his professional demeanor, be would make a great dentist. He did not disappoint and, after five yeas, I feel I have found my permanent dentist. It was a painless (hard to believe, I know) process with scheduling, insurance, paperwork, cleaning, exam, x-rays, and final discussions. If nothing else, he gives you a goodie bag! I strongly suggest you give him a shot and try out the massaging examination chairs, iPads with Pandora, and friendly staff.
Dr. Bauer was warm, friendly, and informative. He took the time to make me feel comfortable, answer my questions, and even explain the basic science behind what was going on with my teeth. It was a very positive experience overall, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist. Bonus points for estimating the breakdown of what my insurance would and would not cover, and explaining everything to me in detail.
Dr Bauer and his crew are very nice and efficient. Highly recommended!
Great experience. This was my first visit and Dr. Bauer dedicated time to connect, hear me out, answer questions and communicate every step along the procedure.
Great! Highly recommended.
Decided to try Dr. Bauer because of his convenient location to where I live. The office is very small and you can see everything that is going on. I was taken in almost immediately and waited very little time for my cleaning. The hygienist offered a massage feature on the chair and was professional, nice, and did a good job. Dr. Bauer was a pleasant man and answered all my questions. Overall, it is not a cushy experience in the way a high powered large dentist office is, but everyone was professional, had good bedside manner, and left my teeth extra clean! I would definitely reccomend him.
Dr. Bauer was very thorough, making sure I understood everything as he was examining my teeth. The hygienist was also very thorough in her cleaning. Dr. Bauer was very adamant about fluoride treatment, and while I know there is conflicting research about the effectiveness of it among adults, I opted for it (it's not covered by insurance). Overall I was pleased with my experience and would go back.
Dr Bauer and his entire staff were well educated, incredibly friendly, and professional. The equipment was modern and clean. The kicker was that the dentist chairs had a massage feature. An actually enjoyable dentist visit. Will definitely continue to visit Dr Bauer.
He has a great bedside manner and I felt welcomed. I have had many bad experiences with dentists but he was very thorough and non-judgmental. He even took the time to explain my insurance coverage. My children were afraid before the visit but felt very comfortable with him. I am very happy with his practice and look forward to my next visit.
Dr. Bauer takes time with you to make sure an answer any questions you have. His staff is very friendly.
Clinically he's very good. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. My mouth is in good hands.
The staff and atmosphere was Great! Very thorough with the examination and the feedback given.
Extremely easy to get an appointment, and everyone I interacted with was super friendly and helpful. Almost no wait time once I arrived. And their dental chairs have a back massage!
Great doc amazing staff! This guy went out of his way to help me out !!!!! A+
Dr. Bauer and the whole staff were great! Would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a quick, efficient, friendly and super-knowledgeable dentist.
Great experience..The doctor and staff were very pleasant and professional..
Dr. Bauer is very professional, well equiped with the last and best technology, very clean with a modern office, and he always ensures his patients are well treated/pampered.
I was seen right away, and the appointment was the perfect combination of quick and comprehensive.
He was open and informative, as he explained his ENTIRE treatment for me, step-by-step during the appointment. He was innovative in creating healthy solutions for me, keeping in mind my lifestyle and habits. He's incredibly thorough. He's the best dentist I've ever had, which is hard for me to say as I have a surplus of dentists in my family.
Very courteous, professional and able, prompt and yet not rushing
The most professional and talented dentist.
I've gone to Dr. Bauer for over two years and have always been seen right away every time. He's the best dentist I've ever been to and does amazing work. I highly recommend him.
I was seen promptly at the appointed time. The office is on the cutting edge of technology, and as a result everything from processing insurance to taking my blood pressure flowed smoothly. Dr. Bauer is funny and reassuring, and his staff is kind.
Dr. Bauer and his staff are all wonderful! Dr. Bauer answered all my questions and everyone in the office was knowledgeable and courteous. Great dental experience! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.
Dr. Bauer and his staff are professional, helpful with patients who don't understand their insurance (like moi!), and provide excellent dental care. I am usually terrified of dentists but feel comfortable at Dr. Bauer's and am more than satisfied with his services.
Sign up quickly if you need a home for your teeth. This is the best doctors office I have visited in Manhattan..
Dr. Bauer and his staff were great. Extremely professional, patient and educational. They have a bunch of tech to make you feel comfortable, like iPads while you wait and chairs that give massages. It's the best dentist experience I've ever had.
Easily the best service I have ever received at a dentist office. Dr. Bauer was friendly, honest, and the entire office was extremely comfortable and stress-free.
excellent caring efficient and most of all pain free!
Dr. Bauer and staff are very friendly and proffesional. I loved the chair with massage, iPad for entertainent and phone charging station. No wait all all. Highly reccomend!
Very clean, organized, professional, and friendly atmosphere. Dr Bauer and his staff were on top of everything. My new regular dentist.
I would not go back to Dr. Bauer. He is constantly and I mean constantly up selling products or services to a point that he made a nasty remark when I said to no to an extra $$ treatment that wasn't covered by my insurance. There is a way to stop selling and allow clients to make decisions and respect those decisions.
This guy is a money hungry, awful dentist with no people skills and horrible etiquette. All he wanted to do was see how much money he could get from me and wasn't actually interested in answering my questions, seeing how I was doing, hearing my thoughts or caring at all about me as a patient. I would highly recommend you seek a different dentist.
I have an irrational fear of dentists, but with Dr. Bauer I felt calm and comfortable. He explained everything he needed to do and broke down the prices for me so I could make an informed decision. I will never see another dentist again until Dr. Bauer retires!
Dr. Bauer saw me back in November because of a tooth emergency. He did a great job and gives dentists a excellent name. The office is very high tech and the staff is very personable. Thank you again for making my visits a good experience.
DR Bauer is a nice guy, knowledgeable and great chair side manner. He is my new best dentist.
Dr Bauer is great and So is the staff!
Dr. Bauer, his assistant and Alex make the best team!!! They are all so accommodating, understanding and thorough.
Dr.Bauer was wable to catch something that my previous dentist did not. If I hadn't seen him just in time, I would have needed a root canal! He was very knowledgeable and professional and had the clearest x-rays I've ever seen (if you're into that kind of thing. I am!)
I found this doctor thorough but extremely rude and dismissive. He made it quite obvious he didn't like me and solidified that by not even saying goodbye when I left. Never in my life have I been treated so poorly by a doctor. I would say in NYC where there is certainly no shortage of dentists to avoid going to him.
Quick, but thorough visit. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend to family/friends.
He was extremely rough during my cleaning. I was terrified. Never again...
The dentist and staff were great, very professional and highly educated. I was very satisfied with my appointments until I had cavities filled. The dentist was a little more rough than I would have liked, it seemed as if he was in a hurry. When my novocaine wore off, I noticed that there was a cut on my face next to the outside of my lip. Needless to say, it took weeks to heal, it was painful and unsightly.
Beautiful, clean space and very friendly staff. Dr. Bauer did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable and informed. Highly recommended.
Great dentist and visit.
Best dentist experience ever. I would highly recommend him. I am glad that doctors like Dr.Bauer are using cutting edge technology to help patients.
Excellent service. The office was clean and run very efficient. He doesn't push products on you and explains things well. Love this office!
Going to the dentist is not one of my favorite things to do. Dr. Bauer made the experience a positive, relaxed, and enjoyable. I highly recommend this dentist!
He is thorough and explains everything He has a good hand to treat sensitive teeth
The Dr. and his staff were very welcoming. Had to wait a little for my appointment, but I could hear the Dr. explaining to the patient before me what procedures needed to be done to her teeth, and took his time making her feel comfortable and informed on those future procedures. Wasn't bothered by this because he had the same concern and took his time with me as well. He explained everything he was doing to make me feel at ease, and his staff was as informative when discussing insurance/payment options.
Dr. Bauer was so friendly and really cared about how comfortable I was during my dental cleaning. I had some trouble areas in my teeth, but he took the preventative approach instead of suggesting that I get a bunch of fillings. It's really refreshing to not feel as though the dentist is trying to up-sell unnecessary procedures.
My initial visit at Dr. Bauer's office was the perfect dental experience. Was immediately greeted by staff that made me feel at home. Everyone was very friendly and professional. My experience with Dr. Bauer was not only comfortable (yes his chair also gives massages) but informative. He walked me through every step, educating me on the procedure as well as his findings. I highly recommend this office for anyone interested in a speedy, comfortable and a friendly dental experience.
One of the best experiences I've ever had with a dentist. Would highly recommend him.
I showed up right on time and was immediately seen by the doctor. Great bedside manner and explained each and every step during the course of the treatment. Massaging reclining chair was a pleasant surprise. Will highly recommend
Extremelly professional! I finally found my dentist in NYC. Alex at front desk was also incredibly helpful.
Dr. Bauer is a wonderful dentist with a great staff. They are prompt, professional, and reliable. Dr. Bauer is friendly and knowledgeable and his office/equipment are incredibly clean and cutting edge.
Very knowledgeable and overall a great experience!
No one likes going to the dentist - but Dr. Bauer makes the experience as enjoyable as possible. He is friendly and kind, as is all his staff. Everyone in the office takes the time to answer your questions and explain everything that is going to happen. The office is extremely clean and professional and Dr. Bauer goes out of his way to make sure his patients are comfortable. Overall a great experience; I will definitely be back!
So far Dr. Bauer has been my Dentist for the past year. It was a long while since I saw a dentist and I was a bit nervous finding a new one. Dr. Bauer did not disappoint. He has great bedside manner and is very skilled and efficiant at his job. He gave me a full work-up including the removal of all of my wisdom teeth, which I needed. Very versitile. As a bonus, he is also very hightech and is a history buff which is pretty cool. I will definitly be going forward with Dr. Bauer for my dental needs.
Great! If I hadn't moved away, I would continue going.
Dr. Bauer and staff were absolutely fantastic. They explained each step of the check up so it became a learning process as they cleaned. Excellent - see you in 6 months!
Dr. Bauer and his team make a dentist visit feel like a walk in the park. Excellent communication with clear steps on the actual work done/proposed. I was given an itemized work plan that mentions the cost of each procedure and my associated co-pay. I Didn't feel any pain during any of my visits, and the results so far have been great.
The doc was amazing just randomly found him. Amazingly high tech explained my terrible teeth very well to me. Highly recommend !!
He is a great Doctor.
Awesome! Best dentist visit ever. Warn, friendly.
Dr. Bauer is extremely tech savvy! He has all the new gadgets, zero physical paper process. I love that every paperwork was done electronically. His staff is extremely friendly and checks in on you all the time. The office is neat and clean and well maintained. The check up was great as he didn't push for cleaning till I try preventive methods first to make the next cleaning easy on me and not painful. Looking forward to the next visit.
No wait, very professional, excellent bedside manner, was very thorough in explaining and answering my questions, spent a lot of time with me. Nothing like the "other" dentists where you get whisked away to get your teeth cleaned and never see the doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Bauer and his practice.
I just moved to NYC & was looking for a new dentist. Luckily, I found Dr. Bauer's office through ZocDoc. Dr. Bauer's office was very nice and clean, his staff was very nice and helpful, and Dr. Bauer was wonderful. He was thorough and gave me a lot of advice to consider when taking care of my teeth. I am happy to know I've found my new dentist!
Dr. Bauer was excellent. He has a hi tech clinic, he is very nice and professional. He walks you through everything he does, so you don't feel uncertainty. Also, when we called his emergency number we got through right away. It was a real saver! Both my husband and I were very pleased with his care!
Excellent Dentist! Excellent staff!
He is the best dentist in the world. I was really nervous and Dr. Bauer and his assistant Alex were kind and helpful. He extracted my first teeth ever and he was very gentle and understanding of my nervous state! Very calming practice and state of the art machines and cleanliness. I have found my dentist :)
If some one would tell me, before I went to Dr. Bauer's office, that I will like to visit a dentist, I would say that that person is insane! My visit was a great experience, friendly environment, and at the first time I didn't feel like my mouth is a disaster. Dr. Bauer told me exactly what I need, explained everything very carefully and introduced me to a treatment plan that can be done in one visit because of the latest technology used in the office, which works perfectly with my busy schedule. Office manager Alex gave me a variety of payment plans to choose from, so I don't feel like I've been robed. It is great to have a dentist who is on your side and I'm glad I found him!
I hate dentists! However, I LOOOVVVEEDDDD my visit with Dr. Bauer. Everything was explained to me, even how my insurance worked. The staff are friendly and courteous. I am returning back for additional work. I DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Bauer HIGHLY.
Lovely doctor and a great experience...and this is coming from someone who HATES going to the dentist. Great pricing on teeth whitening too! (I asked about pricing, there was no hard sell at all)
Super appointment. The office is small so you get very personal attention. No wait time. Nice and clean. Dr. Bauer was professional and knowledgeable and had really cool state of the art equipment. I've been to a lot of sketchy dentists in the city and this was the first one that didn't try to sell me on invisalign or teeth whitening!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Bauer. Great bedside manner and the best technology I've seen at a dentist office. He even took a digital picture of a problem tooth and immediately brought it up on his monitor to explain the issue. Very impressive!
Great as always. Fast, efficient and very helpful.
Worst dental experience of my life. Dr. Bauer convinced me to get a bunch of fillings. I went back to his office twice to get them adjusted, but they have never felt satisfactory. Dr. Bauer is also condescending and overbearing. He actually told me that I should travel to his office after I move because he has a fancy, expensive machine. I had just gotten surgery, so my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I remember him saying that its only purpose is to make the patient more comfortable and that it is very, very expensive.
Excellent . The best dental appointment ever! Work to be done explained in detail by Dr. Bauer. Overall service provided by staff was great.
Great service and excellent communication.
Came in the office in a lot of pain on a first time visit and Dr. Bauer helped stop the pain and find the problem. Helped devise a plan of attack going forward. Professional and friendly. Highly recommend!
Great dentist. Always friendly and very prompt. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Bauer is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and attentive to all the patient's inquiries and concerns. His staff is friendly and considerate. Dr. Bauer's office is state-of-the-art, modern, and very comfortable; it is located on a quiet street near the East River. Dr. Bauer offers expertise as a periodontist and dentist; he was a United States Army surgeon, as well. I highly recommend this dentist.
Dr. Bauer was fantastic. The wait time was very short and the staff was very friendly. Dr. Bauer explained what he was doing during each phase of the appointment and gave lots of feedback and recommendations. He was extremely friendly, quick, and informative. The office is a bit small, but there wasn't anyone else there when i went.
Absolutely wonderful experience!!! First, he has all new technology and the place is pristine. I was seen to immediately and I had arrived early. He is so friendly and warm and I want to tell everyone to switch to Dr. Bauer. He doesn't push services and explains everything thoroughly. Several times he asked if I had any questions but I hadn't because he explained everything along the way. I had x-rays and cleaning. He showed me and explained where and why two fillings needed to be replaced. The x-rays are my least favorite thing about going to the dentist but this was different. The bits one has to bite down on are much smaller and everything is computerized so it takes a few minutes at most. I wish I wasn't moving out of the city or that I had found him earlier. If you are looking for a dentist, book Dr. Bauer. You won't regret it.
The best dentist I have ever seen.
Dr. Bauer and his staff were extremely helpful, courteous, and professional. I will definitely return, and would recommend him to people.
I was truly impressed with Dr Bauer and found his bedside manner to be excellent. He was not only very patient, but his office was extremely high-tech, which allowed him to show me photographs of all the nasty crap in my teeth. Unlike with other dentists, I didn't simply have to take his word for it. I hesitate to recommend him too highly because I don't want him to be too busy -- I liked the ease of getting an appointment.
Excellent patient service from both the dentist and the office staff. Little to no waiting time. Very thorough explanation of planned care. Very impressive.
Just finished my appointment and I'm very impressed. Office is clean, modern, and comfortable. Staff is professional, helpful, and efficient. Dr. Bauer has all the latest techniques and technology and explained everything thoroughly. I'm pleased to have found my new dentist and give him my highest recommendation.
Dr. Bauer was very knowledgable and thorough. A great experience all around.
Dr. Bauer is courteous, professional and VERY quick. He explains all techniques and technologies, and has some pretty cutting edge stuff in the office. He gets down to business and has a gentle touch with his instruments. Very grateful to have a new NYC dentist.
Great! He was really nice and professional. I like that there wasn't a ton of paperwork and that Dr. Bauer explained everything that he was doing during the appointment. I have a second appointment booked for 6 months!
Dr. Bauer was great. This was by far the best dental experience I have had. I am a physician and feel I have exacting standards. I am trying to refer everyone I know there.
The best dental visit ever! Dr. Bauer was very personable and funny (he had do deal with me, so you have to have a sense of humor). His staff took care of everything and helped me understand my insurance benefits and detailed everything out for me for my next visit so there would be no surprises. They explained everything clearly and made sure my questions were answered. They also have a pretty cool referral program and their "White for Life" program is a great deal! I really enjoyed my visit (surprisingly!) and would recommend Dr. Bauer to anyone looking for a new dentist.
Dr. Bauer is great! Very professional and friendly. The office staff is beyond helpful and the office is very welcoming. Dr. Bauer answered all my questions, was extremely proficient and really helpful when it came to a referral. He is worth making an appt with.
Great man. Great background and experience. Upfront and genuine.
Dr. Bauer is a fantastic dentist. I highly recommend him. He takes his time and makes you feel comfortable and informed.
Excellent first visit. Very friendly. Was seen quickly. Thorough cleaning.
I hate the dentist but Dr. Bauer is great.
Dr. Bauer runs a modern, up-to-date dentist practice on the upper east side. I've had three visits with him so far and I don't see any reason not to keep coming back. He is a far cry from the dentists I visited in the 70's and 80's. Very good chair-side manner.
Great dentist, excellent care and very communicative. Wonderful staff and very comfortable offices. Does evening appointments, which is great for someone with a busy schedule. Definitely recommend him, definitely going back.
I think it went well. Because he is a implant specialist I am wondering if I really need the work he suggested.
