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.

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 tohis 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, andI 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.

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 mycleaning. 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 researchabout 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.

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 thevisit but felt very comfortable with him. I am very happy with his practice and look forward to my next visit.

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 Iwas doing, hearing my thoughts or caring at all about me as a patient. I would highly recommend you seek a different dentist.

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. Heactually 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.

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'tcovered by my insurance. There is a way to stop selling and allow clients to make decisions and respect those decisions.

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'sthe best dentist I've ever had, which is hard for me to say as I have a surplus of dentists in my family.
