I liked Dr. Winston a lot - he has a matter-of-fact sense of humor that I was really able to appreciate - especially when no one enjoys going to the dentist. He made me laugh and gave me a reasonable way to approach a challenging prognosis.

I've been looking for a dentist that fits my dental plan and measures up to the excellent treatment I'd had until moving to NYC. Dr. Winston is a great find on both counts. Sessions may be a bit shorter than I'mused to but I felt his attention and competence were just what I was looking for.

The wait time was 5 minutes. Dr Winston is a good dentist who doesn't do / recommend anything that you don't need.

He was chill, but maybe too chill. Didn't do xrays and the cleaning felt pretty cursory. I wouldn't have minded either of those issues except two months after seeing him, I may need a root canal. Seems like he should havebeen able to detect problems on that tooth before it came to this.

Very friendly and knowledgeable, Gave some good advice. Were flexible with me when I arrived not realizing I had to arrange it with my insurance company first. The receptionist called my insurance and got it sorted. That was much appreciated. I would come back again for any dental treatment.

Dr. Winston was very honest about what Dental work I needed to get done. I had receding gum lines on 2 teeth and it took just 15 minutes to get them bonded. No more pain and sensitivity when I brush myteeth. He was kind and to the point. He did my cleaning himself, which is rare, and it felt like a truly personalized experience.

Literally saw me for all of 5 minutes. Went in for cleaning, he used a waterpick for a couple minutes and that was it. I have never had such a horrible, cursory cleaning. Why even go?

I've only had one visit with Dr. Winston; he took the time to get to know a little about me, we talked about the restaurants in the area. I appreciated the discussion because it put me at ease as I amnot a fan of dental visits. He is direct offering clear details to the recommended evaluation to the next steps, so I look forward to my next visit.

He took a while to warm up, but by the end he was pretty good and showed some type of personality. I feel like he did the bare minimum for my visit. He did take me on last minute notice. Haven't decided if I'll be going back.

This dentist just told me my teeth were clean and I didn't need anything done. He proceeded to do a "cleaning" with no tools, no polish, no flossing or rinsing. I will be going to my previous dentist and pay out of pocket. Waste of time.

I think he didn't value me as a patient - he wasn't gentle on my teeth and the cleaning was done pretty quickly so I didn't even feel that I got a proper cleaning.

Dr. Winston was an angel in helping me with my root canal situation. I had broken a filling and through mere luck I was able to see him the next day. He was extremely professional, incredible smart and had a greatbed side manner. I highly recommend Dr. Winston for all of your dental needs.

Went in for a cleaning. He was nice but didn't really do much - just cleaned with high pressure water and told me my teeth were already too clean so he couldn't do anything else for them. Very weird.

I was a little surprised to see that Paul is his own assistant as well, but he was fantastic. I had to have a crown replaced and he explained everything to clear detail what he was going to do and howlong it would all take. The end result was fantastic and he was very good. He is very friendly and welcoming.

I've been going for about 8 years, so I do think he is a great dentist. There are dentists who have tried to get me to do unnecessary work in the past, Dr. Winston never has. My teeth and gums are in great shape thanks to his care and guidance.

I was not overly impressed with my visit with Dr. Winston. He was a very nice man but it was a very brief appointment and he did not seem to be thorough or taking his time...no polishing was done the appointmentconsisted of just a fairly rough cleaning and a little poking around. Will try somewhere else next time
