The receptionists, hygienists, and dentist were kind, professional and courteous. I didn't feel rushed. I appreciated that even thought I have union coverage, they didn't try to talk me into other unnecessary dental procedures. The office was clean, and I liked the soft music they played.

I liked him. He seems practical. It was one of the first times I'd interacted with a dentist and felt I was seen as a person and not a meal ticket here in NYC.

Dr. Convissar was wonderful and friendly. The only complaint I had was that I don't believe the dental hygienist did a very thorough job. She rushed through all the stages of the cleaning and barely even used the polishing brush, justsimply touching it to my teeth and then having me rinse out, which was extremely disappointing. Other than that, which I will bring up at my next appointment, I had a great experience and will be back.

Nice and friendly staff. Were definitely not trying to rip me off in any way. They said my teeth were fine where my last dentist said that he wanted to charge about $3000 to get them "fixed". Very convenient location near a bunch of trains.

Great! I've had some bad experiences with dentists in the past, and Dr. Convissar is not like those other dentists. He's really funny, and his assistants are really friendly. The time flies by!
